-"Only three ordinary helicopters, boss? Really? They will go down within seconds!"
- "Yes, but maybe with all his high-tech stuff there, he doesn't have a simple radar-based defense system, and maybe he is totally careless and not thinking..."
- "But he is a genius!"
- "Ah, come on, let's at least try it. I'd say we got a 10% chance that his works. And if it doesn't work..." "

- "Ah... whatever. Send the helicopters!"
Stark didn't have those defenses for his house because (1)he never gave out his home address to anyone, but he was emotional and gave out the address by mistake and (2)he probably believed that his armor(s) would be good enough to protect him during emergency. But Pepper clearly didn't buy it so she wanted to leave, and Stark wanted to stay for those two reasons. He made a mistake, obviously.
