Rhys Ifans Playing The Lizard in Spider-Man?

Spider-Man: Is that a knife? Is that a real knife?
Car Thief: Yes, it's a real knife.
Spider-Man: My weakness. Small knives. Anything but knives!

Philip Stacy: Did you catch that spider guy yet?

George Stacy: Most people would be wrong. If I wanted the car thief off the street, he'd already be off the street.
Peter Parker: So, why wasn't he, then?
