Kaecilius: You’ll die defending this world, Mister…
Dr. Stephen Strange: Doctor!
Kaecilius: Mister Doctor?
Dr. Stephen Strange: It’s Strange!
Kaecilius: Maybe, who am I to judge?

[repeated line]
Dr. Stephen Strange: Dormammu, I’ve come to bargain!

The Ancient One: Arrogance and fear still keep you from learning the simplest and most significant lesson of all.
Dr. Stephen Strange: Which is?
The Ancient One: It’s not about you.

Thor: So Earth has wizards now?
Dr. Stephen Strange: Tea?
Thor: I don’t drink tea.
Dr. Stephen Strange: What do you drink?
[Strange uses his powers to transform the teacup Thor is holding into a glass of beer]
Thor: Not tea.
Dr. Stephen Strange: So, I keep a watchlist of individuals from other realms who may be a threat to this world. Your adopted brother Loki is one of those beings.
Thor: A worthy inclusion.
Dr. Stephen Strange: Yeah. So… why bring him here to New York?
Thor: It’s a bit of a long story. Family drama. That kind of thing. We’re looking for my father.
Dr. Stephen Strange: Oh. Okay. So, if you found Odin, you’d all return to Asgard promptly?
Thor: Oh, yes. Promptly.
Dr. Stephen Strange: Great. Allow me to help you.

Dr. Stephen Strange: [after Mordo hands him a card] What’s this? My mantra?
Baron Mordo: It’s the wi-fi password. We’re not savages.

Christine Palmer: Where have you been?
Dr. Stephen Strange: I went to Kathmandu, and I learned to tap into powers I never even knew existed.
Christine Palmer: So you joined a cult?

The Ancient One: We never lose our demons, we only learn to live above them.

[after credits]
[Pangborn senses someone in his workshop]
Jonathan Pangborn: Can I help you?
Baron Mordo: They carried you into Kamar-Taj on a stretcher. Look at you now, Pangborn.
Jonathan Pangborn: Mordo. So what can I do for you, man?
Baron Mordo: I’ve been away for many months now and I’ve had a revelation. The true purpose of a sorcerer is to twist things out of their proper shape. Stealing power. Perverting nature. Like you.
Jonathan Pangborn: I’ve stolen nothing. This is my power. Mine.
Baron Mordo: Power has a purpose.
[Pangborn picks up a crowbar and tries to attack Mordo, who strips him of his powers and restores his paralysis]
Jonathan Pangborn: Why are you doing this?
Baron Mordo: Because I see, at long last, what’s wrong with the world. Too many sorcerers.

Dr. Stephen Strange: [on magic] This doesn’t make any sense.
The Ancient One: Not everything does. Not everything has to.

Wong: While heroes like the Avengers protect the world from physical dangers, we sorcerers safeguard it against more mystical threats.

Man on Bus: That is hilarious!

[from trailer]
The Ancient One: [to Dr Strange] You’re a man looking at the world through a keyhole. You’ve spent your life trying to widen it. Your work saved the lives of thousands. What if I told you that reality is one of many?

Christine Palmer: [inscription on Strange’s watch] Time will tell how much I love you.

Dr. Stephen Strange: Dormammu, I’ve come to bargain!
Dormammu: You’ve come to die. Your world is now my world. Like all worlds.
[He disintegrates Strange easily]
Dr. Stephen Strange: Dormammu, I’ve come to bargain!
Dormammu: You’ve come to die. Your world is now my… What is this? Illusion?
Dr. Stephen Strange: No, this is real.
Dormammu: Good.
[he kills Strange again]
Dr. Stephen Strange: [bored] Dormammu, I’ve come to bargain.
Dormammu: What is happening?
Dr. Stephen Strange: Since you gave Kaecilius power from your dimension, I brought some power from mine. This is time. Endless, looped time!
Dormammu: You dare?
[he kills Strange again]
Dr. Stephen Strange: Dormammu, I’ve come to bargain!
Dormammu: You cannot do this for ever.
Dr. Stephen Strange: Actually, I can. This is how things are now! You and me. Trapped in this moment. Endlessly.
Dormammu: Then you will spend eternity dying!
Dr. Stephen Strange: Yes, but everyone on Earth will live.
Dormammu: But you will suffer!
Dr. Stephen Strange: Pain’s an old friend.
[Dormammu kills Strange again. And again. And again… ]
Dormammu: End this! You will never win.
Dr. Stephen Strange: No. But I can lose. Again. And again. And again. Forever. That makes you my prisoner.
Dormammu: No! Stop! Make this stop! Set me free!
Dr. Stephen Strange: No! I’ve come to bargain!
Dormammu: What do you want?
Dr. Stephen Strange: Take your zealots from the Earth. End your assault on my world. Never come back. Do it and I’ll break the loop.

Dr. Stephen Strange: What did you just do to me?
The Ancient One: I pushed your astral form out from your physical form.
Dr. Stephen Strange: What’s in that tea? Psilocybin? LSD?
The Ancient One: It’s just tea. With a little honey.
Dr. Stephen Strange: What just happened?
The Ancient One: For a moment, you entered the astral dimension. A place where the soul exists apart from the body.
Dr. Stephen Strange: Why are you doing this to me?
The Ancient One: To show you just how much you don’t know. Open your eye!
[She touches Strange’s forehead and blasts him into a odyssey across dimensions]

Wong: How’s your Sanskrit?
Dr. Stephen Strange: I’m fluent in Google Translate.

[the Cloak of Levitation clings to Strange and wipes away his tears]
Dr. Stephen Strange: Stop!

Dr. Stephen Strange: I’m not ready.
The Ancient One: No one ever is. We don’t get to choose our time.
[takes his hand]
The Ancient One: Death is what gives life meaning. To know your days are numbered and your time is short. You’d think after all this time I’d be ready. But look at me. Stretching one moment out into a thousand… just so that I can watch the snow.

The Ancient One: You think you know how the world works? You think that this material universe is all there is? What is real? What mysteries lie beyond the reach of your senses? At the root of existence, mind and matter meet. Thoughts form reality. This universe is only one of an infinite number. Worlds without end; some benevolent and life-giving, others filled with malice and hunger. Dark places where powers older than time lie, ravenous and waiting. Who are you in this vast multiverse, Mr. Strange?

[Strange traps Kacilius in the Mirror Dimension]
Dr. Stephen Strange: Who’s laughing now, asshole?
Kaecilius: I am.
[forms his own dimension]

Baron Mordo: [to Strange] I was in your place, once. I was disrespectful, too. So might I offer you some advice? Forget everything that you think you know.

The Ancient One: [after forcing Strange to experiencing the alternate dimensions] Have you seen that at a gift shop?
Dr. Stephen Strange: Teach me.
The Ancient One: No.

Dr. Stephen Strange: How do I get from here to there?
The Ancient One: How did you become a doctor?
Dr. Stephen Strange: Study and practice. Years of it.

Dr. Stephen Strange: [sitting on the doorstep of Kamar-Taj, on the verge of tears] Please don’t shut me out! I don’t have anywhere else to go…
[the door suddenly opens, causing him to fall backwards into the building]
Dr. Stephen Strange: Thank you!

Dr. Stephen Strange: I don’t know what my future holds. But I can’t go back.

[Strange is experimenting with time manipulation using the Eye of Agamotto]
Baron Mordo: [bursting in] No! Tampering with continuum probability is forbidden!
Dr. Stephen Strange: I was just doing exactly what it said in the book!
Wong: And what did the book say about the dangers of performing that ritual?
Dr. Stephen Strange: I… don’t know, I hadn’t gotten to that part yet.
Baron Mordo: Temporal manipulations can create branches in time. Unstable dimensional openings, spatial paradoxes, time loops! You want to get stuck experiencing the same moment over and over again forever, or never having existed at all?
Dr. Stephen Strange: They really should put the warnings before this stuff.

Wong: Be careful which path you travel down, Strange. Stronger men than you have lost their way.

The Ancient One: I spent so many years peering through time… looking for you.

The Ancient One: Through the mystic arts, we harness energy and shape reality.

[first lines]
The Ancient One: Master Kaecilius. That ritual will bring you only sorrow.
Kaecilius: Hypocrite!

The Ancient One: You’re a man looking at the world through a keyhole. You’ve spent your whole life trying to widen that keyhole. To see more. To know more. And now on hearing that it can be widened, in ways you can’t imagine, you reject the possibility.
Dr. Stephen Strange: No, I reject it because I do not believe in fairy tales about chakras or energy or the power of belief. There is no such thing as spirit! We are made of matter and nothing more. We’re just another tiny, momentary speck in an indifferent universe.

Baron Mordo: Do you think there won’t be consequences to this? The bill comes due, always!

Kaecilius: I am death, and pain!

[from trailer]
Dr. Stephen Strange: I don’t believe in fairytales about chakras or energy or the power of belief.
The Ancient One: You wonder what I see in your future? Possibility.

The Ancient One: The Mystic Arts involve drawing energy from dimensions and channelling it for your own use. For a long times, these are known as spells. But if you find that word too antiquated, we can use “program” or “source code”.

Dr. Stephen Strange: I can’t do this.
Baron Mordo: There is no other way.

Kaecilius: I do not seek to rule this world. I seek to destroy it.

Dr. Stephen Strange: You lack imagination!
Baron Mordo: No, you lack a spine!

Dr. Stephen Strange: [to Pangborn] You walked back from a place no one could return from. I’m trying to find my own way back.

The Ancient One: You became a doctor to save only one life: your own.

Baron Mordo: [about Doctor Strange] There’s a strength to him.
Wong: But is he ready?
