Iron Man

Spoken by Obadiah Stane

"Thank you, Colonel. Uh, this is, uh— It’s beautiful. Thank you. Thank you all very much. This is wonderful. Well, I’m not Tony Stark. But, if I were Tony, I would tell you how honored I feel, and, uh, what a joy it is to receive this very prestigious award. Tony, you know, he, uh— the best thing about Tony is also the worst thing: he’s always working."
―Obadiah Stane[src]
"We're iron mongers, we make weapons."
―Obadiah Stane[src]
"Technology. That's always been your Achilles heel in this part of the world. Don't worry, it'll only last for fifteen minutes. That's the least of your problems."
―Obadiah Stane to Raza[src]
"When I ordered the hit on you, I was worried that I was killing the golden goose. But, you see, it was just fate that you survived it, leaving one last golden egg to give. You really think that just because you have an idea, it belongs to you? Your father, he helped give us the Atomic Bomb. Now what kind of world would it be today if he was as selfish as you?"
―Obadiah Stane to Tony Stark[src]
"Your services are no longer required."
―Stane to Pepper Potts[src]
"For thirty years, I've been holding you up! I built this company from nothing! And nothing is gonna stand in my way - least of all, you!"
―Iron Monger to Iron Man[src]
"How ironic, Tony! Trying to rid the world of weapons, you gave it its best one ever! And now, I'm going to kill you with it!"
―Obadiah Stane to Tony Stark[src]
"I've never really had a taste for this kind of thing, but I must admit I'm deeply enjoying the suit!"
―Obadiah Stane to Tony Stark[src]

"Hey! Way to go, my boy! I'll see you tomorrow, yeah?"
"Why aren't you wearing those pajamas I got you?"
"Goodnight Tony."
―Obadiah Stane and Tony Stark[src]

"Mr. Stane. Sir, we've explored what you've asked us and it seems as though there's a little hiccup. Actually, um..."
"A hiccup?"
"Yes, to power the suit... sir, the technology doesn't actually exist. So it..."
"Wait, wait, the technology? William...Here is the technology. I've asked you to simply make it smaller."
"All right, sir, that's what we're trying to do, but... honestly, it's impossible."
"Tony Stark was able to build this in a cave! With a box of scraps!"
"Well, I'm sorry. I'm not Tony Stark."
William Ginter Riva and Obadiah Stane[src]
"Impressive! You've upgraded your armor! I've made some upgrades of my own..."

―Iron Monger, J.A.R.V.I.S. and Iron Man[src]
"You had a great idea, Tony, but my suit is more advanced in every way!"
"How'd you solve the icing problem?"
"Icing problem...?"
"Might want to look into it."
