Howard Stark: I think I'm gona have to let Obadiah go. He's become obsessed with weapons.
Tony Stark: A million dollars says this is about the Earth Movers again.
Howard Stark: You're on!
Tony Stark: I'm gona head back and prep it before we land.
Obadiah Stane: Howard, I want to talk to you about the Earth Mover deal.
Tony Stark: [Fist pumps] Hurray! I'm rich.
James Rhodes: It’s already all over the news! About a thousand people have footage of you on their cell phones. They’re calling you Iron Man. Tony, you’re a hero.
Tony Stark: My dad always wanted me to use technology to help people To save lives. And that’s what I’m gona do. That’s what Iron Man would do. I am going to save Stark International from itself. And maybe along the way, I’ll find out what happened to my dad.
Howard Stark: The hard light laser, and targeting system you invented, acts like a scalpel. Combined with real time seismographic readings, the Earth Mover will not only revolutionize archeology, but just imagine the benefits for disaster relief. Collapsed buildings, cave ins. Your invention, will save lives, Tony.
Tony Stark: It also made your last invention look like a fifth grade science project.
Howard Stark: Yeah, and that’s why I’m grounding you for a month!
Tony Stark: What!?!
Howard Stark: You’re so easy, it’s not even fun.
Obadiah Stane: Why did you reject my proposal for repurposing the Earth Movers!? The military will pay billions for them once they’ve been modified.
Howard Stark: Modified? You want to take an invention intended to make peoples’ lives better into a weapon. That’s not gonna happen.
Obadiah Stane: This is insane, Howard! You’re costing this company and our shareholders a-
Howard Stark: A fortune. I know. But Stark International is my company.
Obadiah Stane: Howard please, be reasonable.
Howard Stark: It’s my company, and my word is final.
