"Bucky did the things I couldn't. I was the icon. I wore the flag... but while I was giving speeches to the troops in the trenches... he was doing what he'd been trained to do...and he was highly trained. He wouldn't have been out with us if he wasn't."
― Steve Rogers talking about Bucky's true role during WWII (Marvel Comics)
"If you will going down this road, the LAPD, the FBI, the CIA… They are all gonna come for you, They will find you, and will stop you.
Good luck."
― Bryan Mills, Taken 3
