Of the original six Avengers, the character Thor has soared above the group, gaining a fourth solo movie with potential for yet another. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Thor is a hero of many titles, God of Thunder, the former King of both New and Old Asgard, and, of course, the founding member of the Avengers.
His is a story of a fall from grace or, so it begins that way; he was banished to Earth by the righteous Odin. But exile wasn’t all that bad: he learned humility, fell in love, gained his power back, and lived out multiple heroic plots that have spanned the course of three movies (thus far).
He’s not all action though, he’s also quite charming. After all, who couldn’t love a wrathful god, turned semi-mortal? Here are some of the best Thor quotes from the MCU:

Thor: “I need a horse!”
Pet Store Clerk: “We don’t have horses. Just dogs, cats, birds.”

Friendship Moment Thor
Thor: “We’re the same, you and I. Just a couple of hot-headed fools.”
Hulk: “Yes, Same. Hulk like fire and Thor like water.”

Thor: “Only if I die.”
Thor: “You know it’s a trap, right?”
Tony Stark: “Yeah… but I don’t much care.”
Thor: “Good. Just as long as we’re all in agreement. [His eyes light up slowly, crack of thunder, Thor suits up with Mjolnir and Stormbreaker]. Let’s kill him properly this time.”
“I will protect Asgard and all the realms with my last and every breath, but I cannot do so from that chair. Loki for all his grave imbalance understood rule as I know I never will. The brutality, the sacrifice, it changes you. I’d rather be a good man than a great king.”

“This drink, I like it! Another!”

Sif: “I’ve got this completely under control!”
Thor: “Is that why everything is on fire?!”
Tony Stark: “The handle’s imprinted, right? Like a security code. ‘Whosoever is carrying Thor’s fingerprints’ is, I think, the literal translation.
Thor: “Yes. It’s a very, very interesting theory. I have a simpler one. You’re all not worthy.”
Dr. Strange: “So, I keep a watch list of individuals and beings from other realms that may be a threat to this world. Your adopted brother, Loki, is one of those beings.”
Thor: “Worthy inclusion.”
“My God, you’re a Valkyrie… You know, I used to want to be a Valkyrie when I was younger, until I found out you were all women. There’s nothing wrong with women, of course, I like women. Sometimes a little too much. Not in a creepy way, just more like a respectful appreciation. I think it’s great, an elite force of women warriors. It’s about time.”
“Brother, whatever I have done to wrong you, whatever I have done to lead you to do this, I am truly sorry. But these people are innocent, taking their lives will gain you nothing. So take mine, and end this.”
Odin: “You’ll be a wise king.”
Thor: “There will never be a wiser king than you. Or a better father. I have much to learn. I know that now. One day, perhaps, I will make you proud.”
Odin: “You’ve already made me proud.”
