Spoken about Ho Yinsen

"I need him. Good assistant."
Tony Stark to Raza[src]


"The hell did you do to me?"
"What I did? What I did was to save your life. I removed all the shrapnel I could; there's a lot left and it's headed into your atrial septum. Here wanna see? Souvenir. Take a look. I've seen many wounds like that in my village. We call them the 'walking dead', because it takes about a week for the barbs to reach the vital organs."
"What is this?"
"That is an electromagnet hooked up to a car battery, and it's keeping the shrapnel from entering your heart."
Tony Stark and Ho Yinsen[src]
"We met once, you know, at a technical conference in Bern."
"I don't remember."
"No you wouldn't. If I had been that drunk, I wouldn't have been able to stand, much less give a lecture on integrated circuits."
―Ho Yinsen and Tony Stark[src]
"You still haven't told me where you're from."
"I'm from a small town called Gulmira. It's actually a nice place."
"Got a family?"
"Yes, and I will see them when I leave here. And you Stark?"
"No. So, you're a man who has everything, and nothing."
Tony Stark and Ho Yinsen[src]
"We need more time. Hey, I'm gonna go by you some time."
"Stick to the plan. Stick to the plan!"
―Ho Yinsen and Tony Stark[src]
"Come on. We gotta go. Move with me. We got a plan. We need to stick to it."
"This was always the plan, Stark."
"Come on. You're gonna go see your family. Get up."
"My family's dead. I'm going to see them now, Stark. It's okay. It's okay. I want this. I want this."
"Thank you for saving me."
"Don't waste it. Don't waste your life."
Tony Stark and Ho Yinsen[src]

Iron Man 3


"Mr. Stark! Ho Yinsen."
"Oh, I finally met a man called Ho."

"Oh this guy."
"Mr. Stark."
"You're a heart doctor. She's gonna need a cardiologist after I..."
"Perhaps another time?"
―Ho Yinsen, Tony Stark and Wu[src]
