"The two enhanced?" "Wanda and Pietro Maximoff. Twins. Orphaned at ten when a shell collapsed their apartment building. Sokovia's had a rough history. It's nowhere special but it's on the way to everywhere special." "Their abilities?" "He's got increased metabolism and improved thermal homeostasis. Her thing is neural electric interfacing, telekinesis, mental manipulation. He's fast and she's weird." "Well, they're going to show up again." "Agreed. File says they volunteered for Strucker's experiments. It's nuts." "Right. What kind of monster would let a German scientist experiment on them to protect their country?" "We're not at war, Captain." "They are."
"Everyone's plan is not to kill them." "And make them martyrs? You need patience. Need to see the big picture." "I don't see the big picture. I have a little picture. I take it out and look at it... every day." "You lost your parents in the bombings. I've seen the records." "The records are not the picture." "Pietro." "No, please." "We were 10 years old. Having dinner, the four of us. When the first shell hits, two floors below, it makes a hole in the floor. It's big. Our parents go in... and the whole building starts coming apart. I grab her, roll under the bed, and the second shell hits. But it doesn't go off. It just... sits there in the rubble. Three feet from our faces. And on the side of the shell is painted one word." "Stark." "We were trapped for two days. Every effort to save us, every shift in the bricks, I think, This will set it off." "We wait for two days for Tony Stark to kill us." "I know what they are."
"You don't know what's in this!" "This isn't a game!" (Pietro, using his super-speed deactivates the Cradle) "No, no. Go on. You were saying?" (All of a sudden, Hawkeye shatters the glass floor Pietro was on with a bullet, sending him to the floor below) "Pietro!" "What? You didn't see that coming?"
