Rosalie Octavius: You need to sleep soundly tonight.
Dr. Otto Octavius: Did Edison sleep before he turned on the light bulb? Did Marconi sleep before he turned on the radio? Did Beethoven sleep before he wrote the fifth?
Peter Parker: Did Bernoulli sleep before he found the curves of quickest descent?
Dr. Otto Octavius: Ahhh, Rosie, I love this boy.

Peter Parker: [speaks to MJ through a dead phone line] I wanna tell you the truth... here it is: I'm Spider-Man. Weird, huh? Now you know why I can't be with you. If my enemies found out about you... if you got hurt, I could never forgive myself. I wish I could tell you how I feel about you...

J. Jonah Jameson: My god, he was a hero. Spider-man truly was an asset to this city. He was...
J. Jonah Jameson: [the Spider-man costume is gone] ... a thief! A burglar. Get me Spider-man now! I want his head!

[to Peter Parker] Get your pretty little portfolio off my desk before I go into a diabetic coma!

J. Jonah Jameson

Guy named Otto Octavius winds up with eight limbs. What are the odds?

J. Jonah Jameson

[Peter apologizes for a previous conversation] Pish-posh. We needn't talk about it. Water over the dam, or under the bridge, or wherever you like it.

May Parker

I should have known Osborn wouldn't have the guts to finish you.

Dr. Otto Octavius

[discussing his son's wedding with his wife over the phone] Flowers? How much? If you spend any more on this thing, you can pick the daisies off my grave! Get plastic!

J. Jonah Jameson

John Jameson: Well, the world's full of great big jerks.

Peter Parker: Sometimes, to do what's right, we have to be steady and give up the thing we want the most. Even our dreams.
Dr. Otto Octavius: You're right.
[the tentacles hiss and snap]
Dr. Otto Octavius: He's right.

Dr. Otto Octavius: Peter Parker! And the girlfriend!
Peter Parker: What do you want?
Dr. Otto Octavius: [grabs Peter with a tentacle] I want you to find your friend Spider-Man. Tell him to meet me at the Westside Tower at 3 o'clock.
Peter Parker: But I don't know where he is.
Dr. Otto Octavius: [takes his sunglasses off with a tentacle] Find him. Or I'll peel the flesh off her bones...
[Tentacle snaps at Peter]
Peter Parker: [angrily] If you lay... one finger on her...
Dr. Otto Octavius: You'll do what?

Spider-Man 2 Quotes

J. Jonah Jameson: Come here. Parker, what do you know about high society?
Peter Parker: Oh... well, I...
J. Jonah Jameson: Don't answer that. My society photographer got hit in the head by a polo ball. You're all I got. Big party tonight for an American hero, my son the astronaut.
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.

Mary Jane Watson
