    [Ben touches Johnny and their powers switch]

    Reed Richards: No, Ben!

    Susan Storm: Ben!

    Ben Grimm: Whoa! Hey! Hey, it's me. I'm back!

    Johnny Storm: [looks at his reflection from the bottom of a silver pitcher and sees he's become The Thing] Oh, my God! Come on! We just said this is serious!

    Ben Grimm: Oh, yeah, serious.

    Johnny Storm: [looks back at his reflection] Oh, you got to be kidding me!

  • Johnny Storm: I could catch him, but he's too strong for me.

    Ben Grimm: I could whale on him, but he'd see me from a mile away.

    Reed Richards: It would take all four of us.

    Johnny Storm: Or maybe one of us.

    Reed Richards: We don't know what that would do to you!

    Johnny Storm: Let's not make this about me.

  • [last lines]

    Ben Grimm: Heads up, Johnny!

  • Ben Grimm: [sees Johnny flying] I hope it rains.

  • Johnny Storm: We wouldn't even be in this position if I wasn't such a complete screw up.

    Ben Grimm: Hey, you're not a complete screw-up. A 'partial' screw-up, maybe.

    Johnny Storm: Thanks.

    Ben Grimm: Look, there's nothing you and me can do now. It's all up to the eggheads.

    Johnny Storm: You think Reed's right? That this might really be the end of the world?

    Ben Grimm: He's never wrong about stuff like this.

    Johnny Storm: [after a long silence] You know, I'm not a very deep kinda guy...

    Ben Grimm: [mocking Johnny's attempt at a sincere tone] No?

    Johnny Storm: I'm just saying,

    [lowers voice]

    Johnny Storm: if we can't stop this, if it's really the end of the world... how are you going to spend your last few minutes?

    Ben Grimm: [stares into his empty pitcher and thinks about the question] Part of me would like to go out fighting.

    [pauses for a second]

    Ben Grimm: But to tell you the truth, I think I'd like to spend my last few minutes holding onto Alicia.

    Johnny Storm: [absentmindedly] That sounds good to me.

    [notices Ben's jealous stare, realizes what he said, and tries to backtrack; he begins to stammer]

    Johnny Storm: Not holding onto Alicia, because she's your girlfriend, not mine. I have no interest in her whatsoever.

    [sees Ben's look getting worse]

    Johnny Storm: Not that she's not attractive, because she is. 'So' attractive. I mean, who wouldn't want to...

    [the glass pitcher shatters in Ben's hand]

    Johnny Storm: What I meant, is that it's just nice to have somebody.

    Ben Grimm: Well, you got me pal.

    Reed Richards: He's dead.

    Ben Grimm: And if we don't get outta here soon... we're all gonna be.

    Johnny Storm: [steps forward, a look of pleading on his face] Frankie...

    [Captain Raye turns slightly and points her gun at Johnny]
