Warning: the following contains minor spoilers for Captain America: Civil War.

Captain America: Civil War was full of awesome moments and hilarious references. With so much going on, it becomes difficult to catch some of the smaller references that occur during the course of the movie.

With everything going on during that incredible airport scene, it would have been easy to miss one of the coolest references of the entire movie. For those who spotted it, I'm sure you know which reference I'm talking about. The movie took a rather memorable line straight out of Finding Nemo!

Yes way. This was one of those blink-and-you'll-miss-it moments that some people caught, but slipped over the heads of others. This is not surprising, as it was during a massive scene where a lot was going on.

Do you remember that incredible bit during the airport sequence where Ant-Man was shot on Hawkeye's arrow and crawled inside Iron Man's armor?

During this bit, Ant-Man begins tearing apart the interior of Iron Man's armor and taunts the metal-headed superhero from inside his suit. When Iron Man asks who he is, Ant-Man replies with the memorable and hilarious line:

"I'm your conscience. We haven't spoken for a while. How are you?"

To some people, this may just be another clever quip by Scott Lang, but to us Pixar fans, it means a lot more.

The clip below is one of my favorite scenes from Finding Nemo where Dory and Marlin are swimming in the dark. When Dory forgets Marlin is with her, she asks who he is and, you guessed it, he replies the same way Ant-Man did in Civil War.

Watch the clip below to see for yourself! (The line is near the end of the clip.)

It's the quick references like this that make me love Marvel so much. No matter how serious the plot gets, the movies are still fun, and the quips are still hilarious. Throwing in little references to things like Star Wars and Finding Nemo really make Captain America: Civil War a fun and enjoyable film.

Did you spot the Finding Nemo reference? Let me know in the comments, and thanks for reading!
