Maria: You brought down an international terrorist. Even when we left you out in the cold.
Natasha: I don’t exactly have the best public profile, these days.
Maria: But you do have the résumé. I need an Avenger, and an agent who has a bad reputation, so that she can do bad things. Things that others can’t. I need you. The world needs you.
Natasha: This wasn’t ever what I wanted for myself, Maria. Being the odd girl out, the bad girl, the anti-hero. It’s not what I wanted.
Maria: Sometimes you don’t choose your path. You can’t change your past, but you can meet the future head-on. That’s what you’ve always done. I admire you for it.
Natasha: I quit.
Maria: What?
Natasha: Thank you for everything, Maria.

¨ One day you will look back and you will realize that every experience you ever had, every seeming mistake or blind alley was actually a straight line to who you were meant to be ¨


Is Nathan the boy we thought he was? Maybe he’s more than he seems. 

Still a weirdo but I mean just give me a minute.
