Same old Barney, huh?

"Clint Barton, ladies and gentlemen. The ever-unchanging Clint Barton."

Look: I’ve never had a job. Not a real job. Not a job my dad didn’t get me… but I’ve worked hard. I’ve worked hard for things. Harder than you’d ever believe. But I never needed a job because I never needed money until now. Look, we’re all adults here; we’ve all seen the “Welcome to the Jungle” video. I cowboyed out to Los Angeles and in the span of forty-eight hours got taken for everything I had. It’s an old story, and maybe I should’ve known better. Rookie mistake, right? But I am telling you now: I might be young, but I am good. I work hard, and I’m a good person. I know what’s right. I know what’s wrong. And if you give me this chance — if you just give me one shot to show you how good I can be, how hard I work, how much I believe in doing the right thing — I won’t let you down.

I promise.

"Then it’s a good thing there are two Hawkeyes in the world"

What, Kate?
I.. god, I don’t even know where to start. I’m here. I’m here for you, okay? No matter what. You can scream and you can yell and be as mean and self destructive as you want, because I know you’re going to be here for me when it’s my turn to fall apart. Let them all come, Clint. Let every last one of those tracksuit-wearing sub-verbal, bullying murderous scumbags come at us. Because you and me? Together? Together, Clint, I think you and me are the person we both wish we could be, and I know that person.. I know that person is worth something. I know that person can.. can pretty much do anything. You with me, partner?


Clint Barton + Kate Bishop in Hawkeye Vol. 3

You’re not that straight.

Life is short. And it doesn’t matter how good your grades are or how many hours you put in at the soup kitchen, you’re not safe. Bad things happen. Things you can’t control. Things that have nothing to do with you. And they will destroy you if you let them. Or you can try to learn from them, so that next time, you’ll be prepared. So that, even if you never feel safe again, you can do your best to make sure that what happened to you never happens to anyone else. And if you’re very lucky, you won’t have to do it alone.
