The Incredible Hulk

Spoken by Samuel Sterns

"This will be a somewhat novel sensation. We have begun. The dialysis machine will mix the antidote with your blood. Except the antidote will only take hold once we've achieved a full reaction. Just relax. Okay. We are comprehensive. Here you go. All right. We set to pop?"
― Samuel Sterns[src]
"We could get the Nobel for this!"
― Samuel Sterns[src]
"Just the three of us, this is Promethean fire!"
― Samuel Sterns[src]


"We started on rats and mice, but it just completely fried them, so we had to go bigger. And we still don't know which is more toxic, the gamma or your blood."
"What do you mean, my blood?"
"Bruce, this is all you. You didn't send me much to work with, so I had to concentrate it and make more. With a little more trial and error, there's no end to what we can do! This is potentially Olympian! This gamma technology has limitless applications. We'll unlock hundreds of cures. We will make humans impervious to disease!"
― Samuel Sterns and Bruce Banner[src]
"Are you telling me you can make more like him?"
"No! Not yet. I sorted out a few pieces, but it's not like I can put together the same Humpty Dumpty, if that's what you're asking. He was a freak accident! The goal is to do it better!"
Kathleen Sparr and Samuel Sterns[src]
"You should know that there is a flip side to this too. If we miss on the low side, if we induce me and it fails, this will be very dangerous for you."
"Ha-ha-ha. Look, I've always been more curious then cautious and that's served me pretty well, so are we gonna do this?"
― Bruce Banner and Samuel Sterns[src]

Spoken by Samuel Sterns

"I see my future unfolding. It is an illustrious future defined by power and influence. A future that begins this very instant."
― Samuel Sterns to Natasha Romanoff[src]
