He has a couple lines besides that one that seem silly and contrived in 2012.

"There's only one god ma'am. And I'm pretty sure he doesn't dress like that!"

But isn't that part of the Cap mythos? He's out of his own time. Like a comic book hero or a national icon.

The public likes you, Bernie. That's the only reason this might fly. But that means it's on you. They're all coming after you now. Not just the banks: politicians, journalists, cops. Anyone whose wallet's about to get lighter. Are you up to it?
