Tony Stark (Ironman)
Good to go on this end. The rest is up to you.
Pepper
You disconnected the transmission lines? Are we off the grid?
Tony Stark (Ironman)
Stark Tower is about to become a beacon of self-sustaining clean energy.
Pepper
Well, assuming the arc reactor takes over and it actually works.
Tony Stark (Ironman)
I assume. Light her up.
Pepper
How does it look?
Tony Stark (Ironman)
Like Christmas, but with more me.
Pepper
We've got to go wider on the public awareness campaign. You need to do some press. I'm in DC tomorrow, I'm working on the zoning for the next three buildings.
Tony Stark (Ironman)
Pepper, you're killing me. The moment, remember? Enjoy the moment.
Pepper
Get in here and I will.
Jarvis
Sir, Agent Coulson of S.H.I.E.L.D. Is on the line.
Tony Stark (Ironman)
I'm not in. I'm actually out.
Jarvis
Sir, I'm afraid he's insisting.
Tony Stark (Ironman)
Grow a spine, Jarvis. I got a date.
Pepper
Levels are holding steady, I think.
Tony Stark (Ironman)
Of course they are. I was directly involved. Which brings me to my next question. How does it feel to be a genius?
Pepper
Well, I really wouldn't know, now would I?
Tony Stark (Ironman)
What do you mean? All this came from you.
Pepper
No, all this came from that.
Tony Stark (Ironman)
Give yourself some credit. Please. Stark Tower is your baby. Give yourself 12% of the credit.
Pepper
12%?
Tony Stark (Ironman)
An argument can be made for 15.
Pepper
12%? My baby?
Tony Stark (Ironman)
Well, I did do all the heavy lifting. Literally, I lifted the heavy things. And, sorry, but the security snafu? That was on you. My private elevator...
Pepper
You mean our elevator?
Tony Stark (Ironman)
it was teeming with sweaty workmen. I'm going to pay for that comment about percentages in some subtle way later, aren't I?
Pepper
It's not going to be that subtle.
Tony Stark (Ironman)
I'll tell you what. The next building is gonna say "Potts" on the tower.
Pepper
On the lease.
Tony Stark (Ironman)
Call your mom. Can you bunk over?
Jarvis
Sir, the telephone. I'm afraid my protocols are being overridden.
Phil Coulson
Mr Stark, we need to talk.
Tony Stark (Ironman)
You have reached the life model decoy of Tony Stark. Please leave a message.
Phil Coulson
This is urgent.
Tony Stark (Ironman)
Then leave it urgently... Security breach. It's on you.
Phil Coulson
Mr Stark.
Pepper
Phil! Come in.
Tony Stark (Ironman)
Phil"?
Phil Coulson
I can't stay.
Tony Stark (Ironman)
His first name is "Agent."
Pepper
Come on in. We're celebrating.
Tony Stark (Ironman)
Which is why he can't stay.
Phil Coulson
We need you to look this over as soon as possible.
Tony Stark (Ironman)
I don't like being handed things.
Pepper
That's fine, because I love to be handed things. So, let's trade. Thank you.
Tony Stark (Ironman)
Official consulting hours are between 8 and 5 every other Thursday.
Phil Coulson
This isn't a consultation.
Pepper
Is this about the Avengers? Which I know nothing about.
Tony Stark (Ironman)
The Avengers Initiative was scrapped, I thought. And I didn't even qualify.
Pepper
I didn't know that either.
Tony Stark (Ironman)
Apparently I'm volatile, self-obsessed, don't play well with others.
Pepper
That I did know.
Phil Coulson
This isn't about personality profiles any more.
Tony Stark (Ironman)
Whatever. Ms Potts, got a second?
Pepper
Half a mo.
Tony Stark (Ironman)
You know, I thought we were having a moment.
Pepper
I was having 12% of a moment.
Pepper
This seems serious. Phil's pretty shaken.
Tony Stark (Ironman)
How would you know if it's... Why is he "Phil"?
Pepper
What is all this?
Tony Stark (Ironman)
This is ... this.
Pepper
I'm going to take the jet to DC tonight.
Tony Stark (Ironman)
Tomorrow.
Pepper
You have homework. You have a lot of homework.
Tony Stark (Ironman)
Well, what if I didn't?
Pepper
if you didn't?
Tony Stark (Ironman)
Yeah.
Pepper
You mean when you've finished? Well, uhm, then...
Tony Stark (Ironman)
Square deal. Fly safe.
Pepper
Work hard. So, any chance you're driving by LaGuardia?
Phil Coulson
I can drop you.
Pepper
Fantastic. I want to hear about the cellist. Is that still a thing?
Phil Coulson
She moved back to Portland.
Pepper
What? Boo!
