The Falcon and The Winter Soldier Season 1 Episode 3: "Power Broker" Quotes
Bucky: You okay?
Sam: Yeah. Just thinking about all the shit Sharon had to go through. And Nagel referring to the American test subject like Isaiah wasn't even a real person. It just makes me wonder how many people have to get steamrolled to make way for this hunk of metal.
Bucky: Well, it depends on who you ask. That hunk of metal saved a lot of lives.
Sam: Yeah, I get that, all right. Maybe I made a mistake.
Bucky: You did.
Sam: Yeah. Maybe I shouldn't have put it in a museum. Maybe I should have destroyed it.
Bucky: Look, that shield represents a lot of things to a lot of people, including me. The world is upside down, and we need a new Cap, and it ain't gonna be Walker. So before you go and destroy it, I'm gonna take it from him myself.
Do you remember how scared we were when we took the serum? Felt like my veins were on fire. Prayed it'd kill me. But it was worth it because this world is ours. Should have been Mama Donya's. And we're gonna use all of our strength to give it to the kids in those camps.Karli
Sharon: Look, you know the whole hero thing is a joke, right? I mean, the way you gave up that shield -- deep down, you must know it's all hypocrisy.
Zemo: He knows. And not so deep down.
Bucky: So what are you doing here?
Sharon: I stole Steve's shield, remember? I also took the wings for your ass so that you could save his ass from his ass. Unlike you, I didn't have the Avengers to back me up, so I'm off the grid in Madripoor.
Sam: Hey, don't blow that smoke at me; I was on the run too.
Sharon: Was, is, big difference.
Zemo: You must have really looked up to Steve. But I realized something when I met him. The danger with people like him -- America's Super Soldiers -- is that we put them on pedestals.
Sam: Watch your step, Zemo.
Zemo: They become symbols. Icons. And then we start to forget about their flaws. From there, cities fly, innocent people die, movements are formed, wars are fought. You remember that, right? As a young soldier sent to Germany to stop a mad icon. Do we want to live in a world full of people like the Red Skull?
When Steve refused to sign the Sokovia Accords, you backed him. You broke the law, and you stuck your neck out for me. I'm asking you to do it again.Bucky
Lemar: I know you want this; I get it. But we've literally tried everything we can here. So has Langley; we keep drawing blanks.
John: So we bet on someone who's got a better hand.
