Hawkeye: 60+ Best Clint Barton Quotes From His MCU Journey

Clint Barton is finally getting the recognition he deserves in the MCU with his Disney+ Show. And here I am today looking back at the top quotes of Hawkeye from his MCU journey so far.

He was often overlooked by the fan and even the MCU themselves. Though he was developed really good especially I loved the way MCU humanized him by giving him a family.

Hopefully, MCU fans are gonna respect him more after this show. So without any further delay let’s get started and check out the best Hawkeye quotes:

21. “Yeah. I think we lost the element of surprise.” — Hawkeye

22. “Hey, look at me. It’s your fault, it’s everyone’s fault, who cares. Are you up for this? Are you? Look, I just need to know cause the city is flying. Ok, look, the city is flying, we’re fighting an army of robots, and I have a bow and arrow. None of this makes sense. But I’m going back out there cause it’s my job. Ok, and I can’t do my job and babysit. Doesn’t matter what you did, or what you were. If you go out there, you fight and you fight to kill. Stay in here, you’re good. I’ll send your brother to come find you. But if you step out that door, you are an Avenger. All right, good chat.” — Hawkeye

Kate Bishop: I, uh, started taking martial arts when I was five.
Clint Barton: Wow. So, like, a year ago?

46. Clint Barton: Look, I gotta find a place to stash you. Safe. So I can recover the suit and clean your mess.
Kate Bishop: Stash me? I’m not a bag of money.
Clint Barton: No, you’re not. A bag of money would be useful to me.

47. Hawkeye: Since when did everybody start saying, “I love you,” to everybody all the time?
Kate: That was my mom. Since when did your heart shrink three sizes?
Hawkeye: When a little girl in a ninja costume stole my Christmas.

48. “It’s been less than 24 hours, you’ve been on the news twice. Impressive.” — Hawkeye

49. Kate Bishop: I’m gonna be late, thanks to you.
Clint Barton: You’re gonna be alive ’cause of me.

Clint Barton: No. That’s Katniss Everdeen.
Kate: Your problem is Branding.
Clint: No, my problem is you. And this ninja suit and the people are trying to kill you because of it. The whole thing’s a problem that I’m gonna solve today, so I can go to my family.
Kate: No, it’s branding.

51. “Guys, I can see through the bag.” — Clint Barton

52. Hawkeye: Uh, look, guys, I’m not who you think I am. Okay?
Thomas: So, you’re not Hawkeye.

53. “Hard of hearing, not deaf.” — Hawkeye

54. Maya: (in sign language) You rely too much on Technology.
Clint: Well, my go-to weapon is two sticks and a string, so…

56. “Listen to me know’s not the time to get scared. We’re gonna get out of this. You go back to living your life, I’ll go back to my family. You’re gonna harness that over-confidence of yours, okay? This ridiculous over-confidence, you remember that one?” — Hawkeye

57. “(to Kate Bishop) You’re not wrong… call yourself one of the world’s greatest archers.” — Clint Barton

58. Kate: Look, I know this may sound weird, but I’ve dreamed of this for as long as I can remember. My dad was fearless. And his whole life was about helping people. When I put that suit on, I thought, “This is it. This is the moment I become who I am supposed to be.”
Clint: I remember the day I thought the same thing. You know, it’s, uh… It comes with a price. This life you wanna live. To really help people. I mean, try to help people, anyway. Comes with a lot of sacrifices. And some things you’ll lose forever.

59. Kate: You need a more recognizable costume.
Clint: You realize that my job for the last 20 years was to be not recognizable, right?

60. “There’re several reasons why I’d never wear a flashy costume. My job is to be, number one, a ghost. Numer two, my wife would divorce me if I put something like this on. And number three, uh… I’m not a role model. I’m sorry, Kate. I’m not a role model to anyone. Never have been.” — Clint Barton
