- "If you fail, if the Tesseract is kept from us, there will be no realm, no barren moon, no crevice where he can not find you. You think you know pain? He will make you long for something as sweet as pain.""

When advised by his intermediary (known simply as the "Other") that opposing the Avengers would be "to court death," Thanos glances at the camera and flashes an evil grin.
