Spoken by Helmut Zemo

"Hello? Is this your car out front? I jumped the curb. Maybe we could take care of it ourselves. But, if you wanna call the cops, then that's okay, I guess."
―Helmut Zemo posing as a civilian who crashed into Vasily Karpov's car[src]
"HYDRA deserves its place on the ash heap, so your death would not bother me. But I have to use this book and other bloodier methods to get what I need. I'm not looking forward to that. You'd only be dying for your pride."
―Helmut Zemo to Vasily Karpov[src]
"Mission Report: December 16, 1991."
―Helmut Zemo[src]
"I knew I could not kill them. More powerful men than me have tried. But, if I could get them to kill each other..."
―Helmut Zemo to T'Challa[src]
"An empire toppled by its enemies can rise again. But one that crumbles from within, that's dead. Forever."
―Helmut Zemo[src]

Spoken about Helmut Zemo

"Who are you?"
"My name is Zemo. I will repeat my question. Mission report, December 16th, 1991?"
"How did you find me?"
"When S.H.I.E.L.D. fell, Black Widow released HYDRA files to the public. Most of it was encrypted. Not easy to decipher. But I have patience and experience. A man can do anything if he has those."

"Mission report! December 16th! 1991!"
"Go to hell!"
―Helmut Zemo and Vasily Karpov[src]
"Hello, Mr. Barnes. I've been sent by the United Nations to evaluate you. Do you mind if I sit? I'm not here to judge you, I just want to ask you a few questions. Do you know where you are, James? I can't help you if you don't talk to me, James."
