Iron Man 3

A famous man once said,

"We create our own demons."

Who said that?

What does that even mean?

Doesn't matter.

I said it because he said it.

So, now, he was famous

and it's basically getting said

by two well-known guys.

I don't, uh...


I'm going to start again.

Let's track this from the beginning.


(SINGING) Yo listen up here's a story

About a little guy that

lives in a blue world

And all day and all night

and everything he sees

ls just blue like him

inside and outside

Blue is his house

with a blue little window

And a blue Corvette

And everything is blue

for him and himself

And everybody around

'Cause he ain't got nobody...





Half hour till the ball drops.

- Hey, do you wanna...

- Tony Stark?

- Great speech, man!

I got you, pal.

I gave a speech? How was it?

- Edifying.

- Unintelligible.

- Really?

- Mmm-hmm.

It's my favourite kind.

A winning combo.

- Where are we going?

- Uh, to town, on each other.

Probably back in your room

because I also want to

see your research.

Okay, you can see my research,

but that's...

I'm not gonna show you my "town."

Mr Stark.

Ho Yinsen.

Ah, I finally met a man called "Ho."


- Come here.

I would like to

introduce you to our guest, Dr Wu.

- Oh, this guy. Hey.

- Mr Stark.


- You're a heart doctor.

She's going to need

a cardiologist after I...


- Bye.

- Perhaps another time?

It started in

Bern, Switzerland. 1999.


- The old days.

Mr Stark!

I never thought they

would come back to bite me.

Why would they?

Oh, wow! Hey, Tony!

Aldrich Killian. (STUTTERING)

I'm a big fan of your work.

- My work?

- Who isn't? He means me.

Well, of course, but, Ms Hansen,

my organisation's been tracking

your research since year two of MIT.

Yeah, we're full.

Oh, wow, he made it.

He made the cut.

What floor you going to, pal?

Well, now, that is

an appropriate question.

The ground floor, actually,

of a proposal

I'm putting together myself.

It's a privately funded think tank

called Advanced Idea Mechanics.

- Uh...

- She'll take both.

One to throw away and one to not call.

"Advanced Idea Mechanics"

or "AIM," for short. Do you get it?

- I see that, because it's on your T-shirt.

- Aw!

Ladies, follow the mullet. Ladies first.

Thank you, I'll call you.


I'm titillated by the notion

of working with you.

- Yeah?

- I'll ditch these clowns.

I'll see you up

on the roof in five minutes.

Just gonna try

and get my beak wet real quick.

You know what I'm talking about?

I'll see you up there.

Damn betcha.

Come on!

I thought that was just a theory.

Well, it was.

If I'm right, we can access the area

of the brain

-that governs repair...


...and chemically recode it.

That's incredible. Essentially,

you're hacking into the genetic...

...operating system...

-...of a living organism.

- Exactly.

- Yes.

- Wow.

Is that...

Can you...

- What?

- Can you not touch my plant?

It's not...

She doesn't like it. She prefers...

She's not like the others.

Come on. Let's go in the bedroom.

- Happy...

- Hmm. That's cute...

Leave her ficus alone.


And, no, seriously, don't.

And you're starting with plants.

For now, yeah.


I'm calling it EXTREMIS.

- Well, it's...

Human application.

Exactly, exactly.

- Dendritic revitalisation.
