  • Susan Storm: It's got to be the cloud! It's fundamentally altered our DNA!

  • Reed Richards: I'm trying to figure out why we each ended up with different symptoms.

  • Susan Storm: You were at 4,000 degrees Kelvin! You were approaching Super-Nova!

    Reed Richards: Johnny, it's imperative that we stay inside for the foreseeable future.

    Johnny Storm: I know, I know, but when you said that last time my brain hurt a week.

    Susan Storm: Johnny, it's too dangerous for you to be in public.

    Johnny Storm: You've been saying that for years.

  • [Susan's invisibility has worn off and she's now standing in front of a crowd in her underwear]

  • Reed Richards: [Talking about his home] So what do you think?

    Johnny Storm: I don't know Reed, I think you might be taking you work home with you.

  • Johnny Storm: [to Reed, after the fight with Ben] What?

    Reed Richards: You need to control yourself, and think before you act.

    Johnny Storm: Yeah, but you see, that's your problem; you always think, you never act! What if we got these powers for a reason? What if it's like some higher calling?

    Reed Richards: A higher calling? Like getting girls and making money?

    Johnny Storm: Is there any higher? You know what Reed - this is who we are. Accept it. Or better yet, enjoy it.

  • Ben Grimm: [complaining about Johnny] That underwear model washed out at NASA for bringing two Victoria's Secret wannabes into a flight simulator.

    Reed Richards: Youthful high spirits.

    Ben Grimm: They crashed it into a wall.

  • Reed Richards: A few days in space. What's the worst that could happen?

  • Susan Storm: [about the machine that could change them back to normal] What are the risks?

    Reed Richards: Even a small miscalculation could increase our symptoms exponentially - or perhaps even kill us.

    Johnny Storm: Now, dying - that's bad, right?

  • Reed Richards: Ben, I've been crunching the numbers on the machine. I think if we can rework the power settings...

    Ben Grimm: [casually] Forget it, egghead. I'm good as is.

    Alicia Masters: [approaches and hands Ben a large metal mug of beer] Better than good, baby.

    [they clink glasses causing hers to shatter]

    Alicia Masters: You just... need to work on your touch.

    Ben Grimm: [hugging her and smiling widely] I like the sound of that.

  • Reed Richards: Exposure to a high energy cosmic storm could advance our knowledge of planetary life.

    Victor Von Doom: Same old Reed, always stretching, reaching for the stars.

  • Reed Richards: [to Ben] I swear to you... I will do everything in my power until there is not a breath left in me- You're gonna be Ben again.

  • [Johnny has engulfed Dr. Doom in a huge fire cone that has just burned away Doom's clothes and outer skin]

    Victor Von Doom: Is that the best you can do?

    [the Thing smashes a water hydrant and soaks Dr. Doom, solidifying his metal form and immbolizing him]

  • Victor Von Doom: [after he turns Ben to normal] Take a good look Ben. This is what a man looks like who embraces his destiny.

    X Games Reporter: Johnny, I've got to ask you about this outfit.

    Johnny Storm: Yeah, it's sorta Armani meets astronaut.

    X Games Reporter: So, what are your superhero names?

    Johnny Storm: They call me the Human Torch. Ladies call me Torch.

    X Games Reporter: What about the rest of the team?

    [Sue's picture is shown on the huge screen]

    Johnny Storm: That's the Invisible Girl.

    Susan Storm: "Girl"?

    X Games Reporter: What about your leader, Reed Richards? I hear you call him Mr. Fantastic.

    Ben Grimm: Could've been worse.

    Reed Richards: I guess.

  • Reporter- City TV: Excuse me. That thing doesn't look so fantastic.

    Reed Richards: Ben Grimm is a genuine American hero.

    [the reporters laugh]

    Ben Grimm: [upset] You don't know?

    Reed Richards: You don't want this to get worse?

    Johnny Storm: Worse than *that*?

  • Susan Storm: Remember our first date here? God, I was nervous!

    Reed Richards: You know, I'd bribed the projectionist ten bucks to keep the place open late.

    Susan Storm: Really?

    Reed Richards: Mm.

    Susan Storm: I gave him twenty!

  • Reed Richards: [Susan unexpectedly generates a force field which knocks Reed off his chair]

    Susan Storm: I'm so sorry! Are you OK?

    Reed Richards: Yeah.

    Susan Storm: You're sure?

    Reed Richards: Yeah.

    Susan Storm: I - uh - you probably thought that was some form of latent hostility.

    Reed Richards: What in the world would give me that idea?

    [Hager starts to walk away]

    Reed Richards: You're right. I didn't. I stayed in and studied like a good little nerd. And fifteen years later, I'm one of the greatest minds of the 21st century. I'm engaged to the hottest girl on the planet. And the big jock who played football in high school, he standing right in front of me asking me for my help, and I say he's not going to get a damn thing, unless he does exactly what I say and starts treating me and my friends with some respect.

    General Hager: [understandingly] Give him what he wants.

    [Hagar walks away]

    Susan Storm: [to Reed] I'm so hot for you right now.

    Johnny Storm: [hugging Reed and switching powers] Me, too!

  • Reed Richards: Your encounter with the Surfer has affected your molecules. They're... in a constant state of flux.

    Johnny Storm: Is that bad?

    Reed Richards: Well, it caused you to temporarily switch powers with Sue. Ideally, I'd like to run some more tests.

    Ben Grimm: [walks toward Johnny] Would you like a volunteer?

    Reed RichardsSusan Storm: No, no, no!

    Johnny Storm: No, no! Hey! This is serious.

    Ben Grimm: I just wanted to give him a hug.

    Susan Storm: We don't know the extent of his condition yet.

    Reed Richards: It could be progressive. It could be degenerative.

    Ben Grimm: It could be fun!

    [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.

  • Reed Richards: [the Silver Surfer's in the distance] Johnny!

    Johnny Storm: [touching his tux] But this is Dolce.

  • Reed Richards: [to Sue after she switches powers with Johnny] You're on fire!

    Susan Storm: [shrieking] You think?

  • Ben Grimm: [gets smashed into the wall by a large concrete slab] OK. That one hurt.

    Susan Storm: Where's Reed?

    Reed Richards: [muffled voice] Back here!

    Ben Grimm: [Ben steps out from the wall to reveal a flattened Reed] My bad.

  • Johnny Storm: Are you building that thing?

    Reed Richards: No, it...

    Johnny Storm: [chuckles] If Sue finds out, you're gonna get an invisible kick in the nuts.

  • [trying to escape from the Army compound with the Silver Surfer, the Fantastic Four are confronted by Captain Raye]

    Captain Frankie Raye: [pointing her gun at Reed] What's going on here? Where is General Hager?

    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]

    Johnny Storm: The world is literally at stake. You have to trust us... please.

    [Captain Raye stares at Johnny a few seconds, then takes her finger off the trigger of her gun]

    Reed Richards: Good.

    Reed Richards: [turns around, speech is muffled by the force field] Please continue.

  • Susan Storm: Guys, we have a problem! He's here!

    Reed Richards: Sue, get out of there!

    Susan Storm: Why are you trying to destroy us?

    The Silver Surfer: I have no choice.

    Susan Storm: There's always a choice.

    The Silver Surfer: Not always!

  • Susan Storm: Reed, I know you. I'm glad you had fun.

    Reed Richards: Thank you.

    Susan Storm: Besides, it was nothing compared to what I did at my bachelorette party. Talk about wild.

  • Johnny Storm: [Johnny notices a Dodge logo on the Fantasticar] A hemi?

    Reed Richards: Of course!

  • Reed Richards: General Hager.

    General Hager: Let's talk somewhere private.

    Susan Storm: Unless you need to do Jell-O shots off someone's stomach.

  • Victor von Doom: Now, let's be clear about this, shall we? I hate you.

    [looks pointedly at Sue Storm]

    Victor von Doom: All of you. But the world's at stake and we need to work together to survive.

    Reed Richards: [to Hager] General, we know firsthand - you trust Victor and you're gonna regret it.

    General Hager: So far, the only one I've regretted trusting here is you, Richards.
