it took me weeks to get used to the idea that he considered me an equal…a part of the team. but before i realized it, we were like brothers.
i believe in you, steve. i believe in captain america. all that hooey about symbol of liberty, fighting american, — even someone like me could fall for it… i guess ‘cause we need a captain america. i need a captain america.
i’m sorry i wasn’t there with you.
steve rogers decides to have fun…it’s not just christmas…it’s a christmas miracle.
stop, i have fun.
remember when i punched hitler? that was fun.
he was my partner damn it, he was my friend.
remember who you are.
he was my link…now…what have i got left? nothing.
don’t let bucky drift back into anger and confusion. he has a chance at a new life - help him find his way. save him for me.
i miss a lot of people, but him more than anyone.
i knew it. i knew you were still in there.
and i think if bucky doesn’t keep wearing that uniform…if he doesn’t keep being captain america…i think he may die…and i couldn’t live with that. even if it means i have to sacrifice a future i want.
i was never prouder than when i saw him pick up that shield to carry on in my place.
