Gen. Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross: How old are you, Blonsky, forty-five?
Emil Blonsky: Thirty-nine.
Gen. Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross: That takes a toll, doesn't it?
Emil Blonsky: Yes, it does.
Gen. Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross: So get out of the trenches. You should be a Colonel by now, with your record.
Emil Blonsky: No, sir, I'm a fighter, and I'll be one for as long as I can. Mind you, if I took what I had now, and put it in a body that I had ten years ago, that would be something I could use to fight him...
Gen. Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross: I think I can arrange something like that.
Emil Blonsky: I've had missions go wrong, and seen good people go down, all because someone didn't tell them what they were walking into. I moved on because that's the job, and that's what we do. But this... This is a whole new level of weird, and I don't think I want to step away from it. Sir, if you're going to take another crack at him, I want in. And with respect, sir, you'll need a team that's prepared and ready to fight, because if that thing shows up again... You're going to have a lot of professional tough guys pissing in their pants, sir.
