"No, but we can erase it. Because once we are done with the stones, we can return each one to its own timeline at the moment it was taken. So, chronologically, in that reality, it never left."
Okay, so the "how" works. Now we gotta figure out the when and the where. Almost all of us has had an encounter with at least one of the six Infinity Stones. No, but we can erase it. Because once we are done with the stones, we can return each one to its own timeline at the moment it was taken. So, chronologically, in that reality, it never left. I got it. There's another way. To retake the Tesseract and acquire new particles. We'll stroll down memory lane. Military installation, Garden State. I thought my dad was tough on me. And now, looking back, I just remember the good stuff, you know. He did drop the odd pearl.
Where to start? Umm... The Aether, first, is not a stone, someone called it a stone before. It's more of a... an angry sludge thing, so... someones gonna need to amend that. Here's an interesting story though, many years ago... My grandfather had to hide the stones from the Dark Elves... Well, it's just... Sir, the box is glowing and, to be honest, some of our mail guys aren't feeling that great.
But it's now dead in the water. We're 1000 light years from the nearest 7-11. Oxygen will run out tomorrow. And that'll be it. And Pep, I ... I know I said no more surprises, but I was really hoping to pull off one last one. But it looks like... well you know what it looks like. Don't feel bad about this. I mean, if you grovel for a couple of weeks, and then move on with enormous guilt. I should probably lie down. Please know that... when I drift off, I will think about you. Because it's always you. If we do this, how do we know it's gonna end any differently than it did before? Wai-Wait a second, let me ask you something. If we can do this, you know, go back in time, why don't we just find baby Thanos, you know, and... The Infinity Stones create what you experience as the flow of time. Remove one stone and that flow splits. I can't risk this Reality on a promise. It is the duty of the Sorcerer Supreme to protect the Time Stone. No, no, no. There's no other options. There's no do-overs. We're not going anywhere else. We have one particle left. Each. That's it, alright? We use that... Bye, bye. You're not going home. I'm sorry. No offense, but you're a very earthly being. Okay? We're talking about space magic. And "can't" seems very definitive don't you think? Hey... Mr. Stark? Can you hear me? It's Peter. Hey. We won, Mr. Stark... We won, Mr. Stark. We won. You did it, sir. You did it.
What I'm saying is, time works differently in the Quantum Realm. The only problem is right now, we don't have a way to navigate it. But what if we did? I can't stop thinking about it. What if, we could somehow control the chaos, and we could navigate it? What if there was a way to enter the Quantum Realm at a certain point in time but then exit at another point in time? Like... Like before Thanos. Why would I be? Why would, why would I be scared of that guy? I'm the one who killed that guy, remember? Anyone else here killed that guy? Nope. Didn't think so. Korg, why don't you, tell everybody who chopped Thanos' big head off. These are Pym Particles, alright? And ever since Hank Pym got snapped out of existence, this is it. This is what we have. We're not making any more. The Infinity Stones create what you experience as the flow of time. Remove one stone and that flow splits. Everyone fails at who they are supposed to be, Thor. The measure of a person, of a hero, is how well they succeed at being who they are. For the last five years I've been trying to do one thing: Get to right here. That's all it's been about. Bringing everybody back.
Gotta say, sometimes I miss that giddy optimism. However, high hopes won't help if there's no logical, tangible way for me to safely execute said time heist. I believe the most likely outcome would be our collective demise. Will you keep that a little quiet? Didn't bring one for the whole team. A dominion of death, at the very center of Celestial existence. It's where... Thanos murdered my sister. Sire, the file appears entangled. It was a memory, but not hers. There's another consciousness sharing her network...another Nebula. I used the stones to destroy the stones. It nearly killed me. But the work is done. It always will be. I am inevitable. Look, us sitting here staring at that thing is not gonna bring everybody back. I'm the strongest Avenger, okay? So this responsibility falls upon me. It's my duty.
I have no idea. We're talking about time travel here. Either it's all a joke, or none of it is. We're good! Get your helmet on, Scott. I'm gonna send you back a week, let you walk around for an hour, then bring you back in 10 seconds. Makes sense? Look, we go back, we get the stones before Thanos gets them... Thanos doesn't have the stones. Problem solved. I thought my dad was tough on me. And now, looking back, I just remember the good stuff, you know. He did drop the odd pearl. Hey! Holy cow. You will not believe what's been going on. Do you remember when we were in space? And I got all dusty? I must've passed out, 'cause I woke up, and you were gone. But Doctor Strange was there, right? He was like, "It's been five years. Come on, they need us!" And then he started doing the yellow sparkly thing that he does all the time...What are you doing?
