“He shoved Bucky in the hall,” Steve supplied, visibly gearing up for an entire rant if he needed one. “Then he shoved his gauntlet into Bucky’s chest and ran off, shouting at Bucky over his shoulder.”
Fury’s lips thinned and he sighed.
“And what, precisely, was said?”
Steve’s scowl only deepened.
“He said, ‘Thanks for holding my hand’,” Barnes said. “C’mon, Stevie, can’t we just leave it?”
"“You know the reason The Beatles made it so big?...'I Wanna Hold Your Hand.' First single. Fucking brilliant. Perhaps the most fucking brilliant song ever written. Because they nailed it. That's what everyone wants. Not 24/7 hot wet sex. Not a marriage that lasts a hundred years. Not a Porsche or a blow job or a million-dollar crib. No. They wanna hold your hand. They have such a feeling that they can't hide. Every single successful song of the past fifty years can be traced back to 'I Wanna Hold Your Hand.' And every single successful love story has those unbearable and unbearably exciting moments of hand-holding.” Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist

About the quote: You see, for me, everybody does need someone holding their hand, being there for them, having their back, and that does not necessarily means a romantic someone. It may be your friend, or your sister, or your very protective dog. It's nice to be able to rely on someone. A love story doesn't equate to a romantic love story, we've all seen Maleficent (and if you haven't, you should).
