Superman: I'm here to fight for truth, and justice, and the American way.
Lois Lane: [laughs] You're gonna end up fighting every elected official in this country!

[after saving Lois Lane and other members of the media from a plane crash] Well, I hope this experience hasn't put any of you off flying. Statistically speaking, it's still the safest way to travel.

Kitty Kowalski: My heart, my palpitations, they're gone, what did you do?
Superman: I didn't do anything, Ma'am.
Kitty Kowalski: [breathlessly] Call me Catharine.

Superman: I know lots of people are asking questions now that I'm back, and I think it's only fair that I answer... those people.
Lois Lane: So... you're here for an interview?

I hear everything. You wrote that the world doesn't need a savior, but every day I hear people crying for one.

I'm sorry I left you, Lois.
