The Amazing Spider-Man Quotes

Peter? I know things have been difficult lately and I'm sorry about that. I think I know what you're feeling. Ever since you were a little boy, you've been living with so many unresolved things. Well, take it from an old man. Those things send us down a road... they make us who we are. And if anyone's destined for greatness, it's you, son. You owe the world your gifts.

Peter Parker: Sorry Miss Ritter! It won't happen again, I promise.
Miss Ritter: Don't make promises you can't keep.
Peter Parker: Yeah but those are the best kind.
