Captain America Movie Quotes

If you're looking for 'Captain America' movie quotes, you've come to the right place. This new Marvel movie is one of the better superhero films in recent years (yes, reviews were pretty good), and not surprisingly, it's highly quotable. If you missed this movie in theaters, you'll get a chance to see it on video soon: The 'Captain America' DVD was set for release on October 25, 2011. Don't see your favorite 'Captain America: The First Avenger' quote listed? Feel free to add it!

'Captain America: The First Avenger' stars Chris Evans as Steve Rogers, a man who volunteers for a super-secret military project that turns him into super soldier Captain America. Many of the 'Captain America' quotes come from Evans, as either Steve or, well, Captain America - but others come from Colonel Chester Phillips (Tommy Lee Jones), scientist Dr. Abraham Erskine (Stanley Tucci) and Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), Captain America's faithful friend and sidekick.

'Captain America' had a strong showing at the U.S. box office, taking in more than $65 million in its first weekend of release. The movie went on to gross well over $173 million (as of mid-September 2011). Definitely a hit!

If you're looking for more blockbuster movie quotes, check out these gems from 'Moneyball,' 'Contagion,' 'Conan the Barbarian,' 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon', 'X-Men: First Class', 'Super 8' and 'Green Lantern!'

    Why Me?

    Steve Rogers: "Why me?"
    Dr. Abraham Erskine: "...because a weak man knows the value of strength, the value of power..."

    With this one quote, Dr. Erskine explains to the doubting Steve that because he was once weak, he understands the responsibilities that come with great strength.

    It Works

    Steve Rogers: (showing his shield to Peggy) "What do you think?"
    (Peggy shoots the shield)
    Peggy Carter: "Yes, I think it works."

    Steve's choice of the prototype vibranium shield is clearly a good one. As Stark explains, it's the "rarest metal on Earth" and it's the only one. Does it work? Peggy quickly tests it - and yes, it does.

    Kid from Brooklyn

    Red Skull: "What makes you so special?"
    Steve Rogers: "Nothing. I'm just a kid from Brooklyn."

    You are far more than "just a kid from Brooklyn," Steve Rogers, but interesting strategy, making your arch nemesis think you're just a regular guy. With a vibranium shield. And super powers.

    Dr. Abraham Erskine: "Are you ready?"
    Steve Rogers: "Is it too late to go to the bathroom?"

    Yes Steve, it's too late. But we don't blame you, given what's happening.
