J. Jonah Jameson

[narrating] She looks at me everyday. Mary Jane Watson. Oh boy! If she only knew how I felt about her. But she can never know. I made a choice once to live a life of responsibility. A life she can never be a part of. Who am I? I'm Spider-Man, given a job to do. And I'm Peter Parker, and I too have a job.

Peter Parker

You've stuck your webs into my business for the last time!

Doc Ock

Peter Parker: [realizes he may have recovered his super-powers] I'm back! I'm back!

Ben Parker: You've been given a gift Peter, with great power, comes great responsibility.
[gives his hand to Peter]

I will not die a monster.

Dr. Otto Octavius

Rosalie Octavius: Peter, tell us about yourself. Do you have a girlfriend?
Peter Parker: Uh, well... I don't really know.
Dr. Otto Octavius: Well, shouldn't you know? Who would know?
Rosalie Octavius: Leave him alone. Maybe it's a secret love.
Dr. Otto Octavius: Love should never be a secret. If you keep something as complicated as love stored up inside, it could make you sick.

J. Jonah Jameson: Come here. Parker, what do you know about high society?
Peter Parker: Oh... well, I...

Peter Parker: Mr. Jameson, can you pay me in advance?
[Jameson laughs hysterically for a few seconds]
J. Jonah Jameson: You serious? What, pay you for just standing there? The planeterium, 8:00. There's the door.

Go get 'em, tiger.
