Captain America, aka Steve Rogers, is an iconic Marvel character. Throughout the films, Captain America is known for his rallying speeches that inspire Avengers and audience members alike, making him one of the most quotable characters from the franchise.
“The price of freedom is high; it always has been. And it’s a price I’m willing to pay. And if I’m the only one, then so be it. But I’m willing to bet I’m not.”
In Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Steve discovers that HYDRA has infiltrated SHIELD. He inspires agents to fight against HYDRA to ensure the freedom of others. We want to know the same thing that Sam does after hearing that speech: did Cap write it down first, or did he just come up with it off the top of his head?
“I’m with you till the end of the line.”
Steve Rogers is loyal to those he cares about. He is especially devoted to his friend Bucky Barnes. He refuses to fight Bucky and promises that he’ll always be there for him. We can’t help but tear up at this scene and quote this line to our best friends.
When Captain America picked up the hammer and rallied the Avengers to charge at Thanos, audiences cheered all around the world. This iconic line from the comics was teased in Avengers: Age of Ultron, which made it so satisfying when he finally said it in Avengers: Endgame. Cap is known as the leader of the Avengers, and with this line, he unites them together for one last fight.
“I can do this all day.”
This line becomes Captain America’s mantra throughout the movies. It emphasizes how resilient Steve Rogers is. Every time he gets knocked down, he gets back up. Every. Single. Time. Even when he gets hit by his past self, he bounces back and continues to fight.
“I’m gonna need a raincheck on that dance.”
Steve tells his love interest, Peggy, that he’s been waiting for the right partner, and Peggy tells him she wants to go dancing when the war’s over. When Steve sacrifices himself by crashing the plane into the ocean, he tells her that she’ll have to wait a little longer. Thankfully, the wait is over when they finally get their dance at the end of Avengers: Endgame.
“I’m just a kid from Brooklyn.”
The core of what makes Captain America special is that he gains his powers due to the strength of his character and heart. This quote reminds us that anyone can be a hero, no matter where they come from.
“On your left.”
Steve repeats this phrase over and over again when he runs past Sam on his morning jogs in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. It turns from being courteous to humorous very quickly. Sam gets his payback when he says “on your left” to Steve when arriving at the final battle against Thanos in Avengers: Endgame.
“I’m not looking for forgiveness, and I’m way past asking for permission.”
Often in movies, government officials try to stop the heroes from saving the day, frustrating the audience. Steve doesn’t let this happen in Avengers: Infinity War. He’s there to save people, and won’t let any person stand in his way, despite the power they have.
“The last time I was in Germany and saw a man standing above everybody else, we ended up disagreeing.”
Steve Rogers hates bullies, no matter where they’re from. While he’s seen as a man out of time in the first Avengers film, his belief about standing up against evil is timeless.
“Sometimes, patience is the key to victory. Sometimes, it leads to very little, and it seems like it’s not worth it, and you wonder why you waited so long for something so disappointing.”
Marvel is famous for its end credit scenes. In Spider-Man: Homecoming, Captain America appears in a video intended for students at Peter Parker’s school. Steve breaks the fourth wall, addressing the audience members that stayed in the cinema to watch the end credit scene. Even outside of his solo films, Steve Rogers manages to steal the show.
