Quote1.png I’ve been to hell before, little girl. It was called the Red Room. Quote2.png
--Natalia Romanova (Earth-616)
Quote1.png You don't have a story, little one. You're simply a footnote in mine. Quote2.png
--Natalia Romanova (Earth-616)
Quote1.png For that capitalist dog -- you shall feel -- the Widow's bite! Quote2.png
--Natalia Romanova (Earth-616)
Quote1.png I could just use some moral support, James. Because what I'm going to do is this... find everyone I "love"... you included. Don't argue and don't ask -- see they're protected... find out what this "Icepick Protocol" is... and who's using it... bring everything they are crashing down... kill every single one of them... and toast Ivan in the blazing ruins. Could be tricky. Quote2.png
--Natalia Romanova (Earth-616)
Quote1.png I've been thinking a lot about Life and Death during the past twelve Hours. When something surrounds and madly engulfs your entire Existence, you can't help but give it more than just casual Consideration. Life is Fluid. Some 90 % of what we are is made up of Water. Without this precious Liquid we are nothing. We cease to exist. We're dead. This Water's carried around in Thinskinned Sacks. We must all be Insane to race recklessly about in World filled with so many sharp and pointed Dangers. That's just asking for Trouble. Quote2.png
--Natalia Romanova (Earth-616)

Quote1.png I'm involved. Off the market, as they say in the civilized world...So why don't we make your price the antidote to the poison I put in your first drink, darling? Then we can catch up on old times... Quote2.png
--Natalia Romanova (Earth-616)
Quote1.png This "nice long nap" you describe? It's preceded by a death. Not a coma, even -- we're talking about actual, physical death. How traumatic an experience something like that is? To have felt the life drain out of you, and then come back from that? To have known that fear, to have felt that cold -- that changes you. And then to not just live again, but -- most of the people we're talking about, they died fighting. For them to go from that, to back to the front lines, sometimes within an hour's time? Is that something you'd sign up for? Quote2.png
--Natalia Romanova (Earth-616)
Quote1.png ...Eric is a Life-Model Decoy. In the Core, we found Ant-Man's beacon in a large puddle of blood... but when we found Eric, he was uninjured. You were killed and brought back as a Descendant, sent here to spy for Father-- Quote2.png
--Natalia Romanova (Earth-616)
