Peter Parker / Spider-Man[edit]

  • [first words of the movie] Who am I? You sure you wanna know? The story of my life is not for the faint of heart.
  • [after Norman suggests they be like father and son] I have a father. His name was Ben Parker.
  • [letting robber get away] I missed the part where that's my problem.
  • [confronting the carjacker who killed his Uncle Ben] [Carjacker: Don't hurt me. Just give me a chance. Just give me a chance!] What about my uncle? Did you give him a chance? Did you?! Answer me!
  • [Trying to figure out how to shoot webs] Go web! Fly! Up, up, and away web! Shazaam! Go! Go! Go web go! Tally ho.
  • [Spider-Man saves Mary-Jane at the World Unity Festival] Well, beats taking the subway. Don't mind us. She needs to use the elevator.
  • I'm gonna get you out of here! It's okay! [Green Goblin punches Spider-Man through burning walls] [Green Goblin: You're pathetically predictable. Like a moth to the flame. What about my generous proposal? Are you in or are you out?] It's you who's out, Gobbie; Out of your mind. [Green Goblin: Wrong answer!] [sarcastically] Oh, great.
  • [while fighting Bonesaw McGraw] [Bonesaw McGraw: What are you doing up there?!] Staying away from you. That's a cute outfit. Did your husband give it to you?
  • [last words of the movie] Whatever life holds in store for me, I will never forget these words: "With great power comes great responsibility." This is my gift, my curse. Who am I? I'm Spider-Man.

Norman Osborn / Green Goblin[edit]

  • Sorry I'm late. Work was murder.
  • I know this has been a difficult time for you, but I want you to try to enjoy this day. Commencement: the end of one thing, the start of something new.
  • Back to formula?!?
  • OUT, AM I?!
  • [last words] Peter? Don't tell Harry.
  • [after blocking Spider-Man's Punch] Impressive!
  • [Spraying Spider-Man with Knockout Gas] Sleeeeeep!
  • Misery, misery, misery, that's what you chosen. I offered you friendship, and you spat in my face.
  • We'll meet again, Spider-Man!
  • Jameson, you slime! Who's the photographer takes the picture of Spider-Man?
  • You're lying!
  • He's the one who can bring me to him.
  • You are useless.
  • Speak of the devil.
  • Sleep.
  • No one says "No!" to me!
  • Follow the cold shiver running down your spine.
  • Can Spider-Man come out to play?
  • [singing] The itsy-bitsy spider went up the water spout. Down came the Goblin and took the spider out!
  • Spider-Man! This is why only fools are heroes - because you never know when some lunatic will come along with a sadistic choice!
  • [to his son Harry, about Mary Jane] Harry, please. Look at her. You think a woman like that's sniffing around because she likes your personality? Your mother was beautiful too, they're all beautiful - until they're snarling after your trust fund like a pack of ravening wolves!
  • Make your choice, Spider-Man, and see how a hero is "rewarded". [Spider-Man: Don't do it, Goblin!] We are who we choose to be. Now choose! [Spider-Man: [alarmed] NO!]
  • A word to the not-so-wise about your little girlfriend: do what you need to with her, then broom her fast!
  • You've spun your last web, Spider-Man. Had you not been so selfish, your little girlfriend's death would have been quick and painless, but now that you've really pissed me off, I'm gonna finish her nice and slow. M.J. and I, we're gonna have a hell of a time!
  • Forty thousand years of evolution and we've barely even tapped the vastness of human potential.
  • I am going to rectify certain inequities.
  • Godspeed, Spider-Man.
  • The one thing they love more than a hero is to see a hero fail, fall, die trying. In spite of everything you've done for them, eventually, they will hate you.
  • Harry tells me you're quite the science whiz. You know, I'm something of a scientist myself.

Mary Jane Watson[edit]

  • He's saved my life twice and I've never even seen his face.
  • Do I get to say thank you this time?
  • I better run, tiger.
  • They said I needed acting lessons. A soap opera told me.

Harry Osborn[edit]

  • [Spider-Man lays Norman's dead body on the bed] What have you done? [angrily] WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?!
  • One day, Spider-Man will pay, I swear on my father's grave, Spider-Man will pay.

Ben Parker[edit]

  • With great power, comes great responsibility.

J. Jonah Jameson[edit]

  • If we can get a picture of Julia Roberts in a thong, we can certainly get a picture of this weirdo! Put it up on the front page: "Cash Money For a Picture of Spider-Man!" He doesn't wanna be famous? Then I'll make him infamous!
  • No jobs! Freelance! Best thing in the world for somebody your age. You bring me some more pictures of that newspaper-selling clown, maybe I'll take 'em off your hands. But I never said you have a job! Meat. I'll send you a nice box of Christmas meat, it's the best I can do. Get out of here. Bring me more photos.
  • They're crap. Crap, crap, mega crap. I'll give you $200 for all of 'em.
  • "Who is Spider-Man?" He's a criminal, that's who he is! A vigilante! A public menace! What's he doing on MY front page?

Bonesaw McGraw[edit]

  • [Ring Announcer: ARE YOU READY FOR MORE?!] [take microphone] Bonesaw is ready!
  • Hey, freak show! You're going nowhere! I got you for three minutes! Three minutes of playtime.


[first lines]
Peter Parker: Who am I? You sure you want to know? The story of my life is not for the faint of heart. If somebody said it was a happy little tale...if somebody told you I was just an average ordinary guy, not a care in the world...somebody lied. But let me assure you: This, like any story worth telling, is all about a girl. That girl. The girl next door. Mary Jane Watson. The woman I've loved since before I even liked girls. [referring to Flash Thompson sitting next to her] I'd like to say that's me sitting next to her. [referring to an overweight kid in front of them messily eating a jelly doughnut] Aw, heck, I'd even take him. [he and the other kids see a nerdy Peter running along the bus, asking to stop] That's me.

Harry Osborn: [to driver in Rolls Royce] Uh, hey, could you drive us around the corner, please?
Norman Osborn: [sitting next to Harry] Why? The entrance is right there.
Harry Osborn: Dad, these are public school kids. I'm not showing up for a field trip in a Rolls.
Norman Osborn: What, so you want me to just trade in my car for a Jetta just because you flunked out of every private school I ever sent you to?
Harry Osborn: It wasn't for me.
Norman Osborn: Of course it was. Don't ever be ashamed of who you are.
Harry Osborn: I'm not ashamed of who I am. It's just...
Norman Osborn: Just what, Harry?
Harry Osborn: Forget it.

Uncle Ben: Hey, listen, Pete, we need to talk.
Peter Parker: We can talk later.
Uncle Ben: We can talk now... if you'll let me.
Peter Parker: Well, what's so important? Why do we need to talk now?
Uncle Ben: Because we haven't talked for so long, your Aunt May and I don't even know who you are anymore: You've shirked your chores, you have all those weird experiments in your room, you start fights at school–
Peter Parker: I didn't start that fight, I told you that.
Uncle Ben: Well, you sure as Hell finished it.
Peter Parker: What was I supposed to do, run away?
Uncle Ben: No, you're not supposed to run away, but– Pete, look, you're changing. I know, I went through exactly the same thing at your age.
Peter Parker: No. Not exactly.
Uncle Ben: Peter... these are the years when a man changes into the man he's going to be for the rest of his life. Just be careful who you change into. This guy, Flash Thompson, he probably deserved what happened. But just because you can beat him up, doesn't give you the right to. Remember: With great power...comes great responsibility.
Peter Parker: Are you afraid that I'm gonna turn into some kind of criminal? Quit worrying about me, okay? Something's different. I'll figure it out. Quit lecturing me, please.
Uncle Ben: I don't mean to lecture, and I don't mean to preach. And I know I'm not your father.
Peter Parker: Then stop pretending to be.

Bonesaw McGraw: Next victim!
Ring Announcer: [to crowd] ARE YOU READY FOR MORE?!
Bonesaw McGraw: [takes microphone] Bonesaw is READY!
[crowd cheers]
Ring Announcer: Will the next victim please enter the arena at this time? If he can withstand just 3 minutes in the cage with Bonesaw McGraw, the sum of $3,000 will be paid to– What's your name, kid?
Peter Parker: The Human Spider.
Ring Announcer: "The Human Spider"? That's it, that's the best you got?
Peter Parker: Yeah.
Ring Announcer: Oh, that sucks.

Fight Promoter: [after he gives Peter Parker only $100 instead of $3,000.] Now get outta here.
Peter Parker: $100? The ad said "$3,000."
Fight Promoter: Check it again, web-head. It said "$3,000 for three minutes," and you pinned him in two. For that, I give you $100, and you're lucky to get that.
Peter Parker: [angered] I need that money.
Fight Promoter: I missed the part where that's my problem.

Fight Promoter: [after getting robbed and Peter let the guy get away] You could've taken that guy apart. Now he's gonna get away with my money.
Peter Parker: I missed the part where that's my problem.

Peter Parker: I miss him a lot today.
May Parker: I know. I miss him to. But...he was there.
Peter Parker: I can't help thinking about...the last thing I said to him. He tried to tell me something important, and I threw it in his face.
May Parker: You loved him. And he loved you. He never doubted the man you'd grow into; how you were meant for great things. You won't disappoint him.

Mary Jane: Who are you?
Spider-Man: You know who I am.
Mary Jane: I do?
Spider-Man: Your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man!

[Spider-Man regains conscious after being knocked out by the Green Goblin]
Green Goblin: Wake up, little spider, wake up. No, you're not dead... yet. Just paralyzed, temporarily. You're an amazing creature, Spider-Man. You and I are not so different.
Spider-Man: [weakly] I'm not like you. You're a murderer.
Green Goblin: Well. To each his own. I chose my path, you chose the way of the hero. And they found you amusing for a while, the people of this city. But the one thing they love more then a hero...is to see a hero fail, fall, die trying. In spite of everything you've done for them, eventually, they will hate you. Why bother?
Spider-Man: Because... it's right.
Green Goblin: [taps Spider-Man on the head] Here's the real truth. There are eight million people in this city, and those teeming masses exist for the sole purpose of lifting the few exceptional people onto their shoulders. You, me, we're exceptional. I could squash you like a bug right now, but I'm offering you a choice: join me. Imagine what we could accomplish together, what we could create...or we could destroy, cause the deaths of countless innocents in selfish battle, again and again and again until we're both dead! Is that what you want? [jumps onto his glider] Think about it, hero!

Mary Jane: You're amazing.
Spider-Man: Some people don't think so.
Mary Jane: But you are.
Spider-Man: Nice to have a fan.

Green Goblin: Spider-Man is all but invincible; but Parker, we can destroy him.
Norman Osborn: I can't.
Green Goblin: Betrayal must not be countenanced! Parker must be educated.
Norman Osborn: What do I do?
Green Goblin: Instruct him in the matters of loss and pain. Make him suffer, make him wish he were dead.
Norman Osborn: Yes?
Green Goblin: And then grant his wish.
Norman Osborn: But how?
Green Goblin: The cunning warrior attacks neither body nor mind.
Norman Osborn: Tell me how!
Green Goblin: The heart, Osborn. First, we attack his heart.

Aunt May: Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us– [the Green Goblin bursts through the window, laughing maniacally] [screams in horror] DELIVER US–
Green Goblin: Finish it. FINISH IT!
Aunt May: FROM EVIL!

Mary Jane: Has he mentioned me?
Peter Parker: Yeah.
Mary Jane: What'd he say?
Peter Parker: Uh... I said... he asked me what I thought about you.
Mary Jane: And what did you say?
Peter Parker: I said... uh... Spider-Man, I said uh... The great thing about MJ is... when you look in her eyes and she's looking back in yours... everything... feels... not quite normal. Because you feel stronger and weaker at the same time. You feel excited and at the same time, terrified. The truth is... you don't know what you feel except you know what kind of man you want to be. It's as if you've reached the unreachable and you weren't ready for it."
Mary Jane: You said that?
Peter Parker: Well, something like that.

Peter Parker: Can I do anything for you?
Aunt May: You do too much: College, a job, all this time with me– You're not Superman, you know.

J. Jonah Jameson: Spider-Man. And the Green Goblin. "The Green Goblin." You like that?
Peter Parker: Mr. Jameson–
J. Jonah Jameson: Made it up myself. These weirdos all got to have a name now.
Peter Parker: Mr. Jameson, Spider-Man–
J. Jonah Jameson: [picks up phone] Hoffman!
Hoffman: Yeah?
J. Jonah Jameson: [sees Hoffman in the office, and hangs up the phone.] Call the patent office, copyright the name "Green Goblin." I want a quarter every time somebody says it.
Hoffman: How about "Green Meanie"? [Jameson makes a "Get out!" hand gesture]
Peter Parker: Spider-Man wasn't attacking the city, he was trying to save it. That's slander.
J. Jonah Jameson: It is not. I resent that. Slander is spoken. In print, it's libel.
Peter Parker: You don't trust anybody, that's your problem.
J. Jonah Jameson: I trust my barber. What are you, his lawyer? Get outta here. [throws his cigar out the window] Let him sue me; get rich like a normal person. That's what made this country– [his cigar is thrown back in the window, lands in from of him, and the Green Goblin bursts through the The Daily Bugle window]
Green Goblin: [grabbing Jameson by the throat] Jameson, you slime! Who's the photographer who takes the pictures of Spider-Man?
J. Jonah Jameson: I don't know who he is: His stuff comes in the mail!
Green Goblin: You're lying!
J. Jonah Jameson: I swear!
Green Goblin: He's the one who can take me to him!
J. Jonah Jameson: I don't know who he is!
Green Goblin: [preparing to punch Jameson] You are useless, you--
Spider-Man: [appears upside-down outside the window] Set him down, tough guy.
Green Goblin: [drops Jameson and turns around on the glider] Speak of the Devil!
J. Jonah Jameson: Spider-Man! I knew you two were in this together! I--
Spider-Man: [uses his web to seal Jameson's mouth shut.] Hey, kiddo, let Mom and Dad talk for a minute, will ya?
Green Goblin: [uses sleep gas] Sleep!

[A bunch of commuters throw things at the Goblin to save Spider-Man, Mary Jane and a tram full of kids]
Commuter 1: Come on up here, tough guy! I got a little somethin' for ya!
Woman: We're gonna kick your frickin' ass!
Commuter 1: Leave Spider-Man alone! You're gonna pick on a guy trying to save a bunch of kids?!
Commuter 2: Oh, yeah, I got something for your ass! You mess with Spidey, you mess with New York!
Commuter 1: You mess with one of us, you mess with all of us!

[As the Green Goblin throws Spider-Man through the building, Spider-Man swings through the window, and crashes to the wall. A pumpkin bomb is thrown in front of Spider-Man's face; it explodes, and blows Spider-Man through the brick wall, and knocking him to the ground. The Green Goblin hops off his glider.]
Green Goblin: Misery, misery, misery, that's what you've chosen. I offered you friendship, and you spat in my face. [The Green Goblin beats Spider-Man up, until he kicks Spider-Man to the wall. Just as Spider-Man is about to shoot his web, the Green Goblin stops him.] You've spun your last web, Spider-Man. Had you not been so selfish, your little girlfriend's death would have been quick and painless. But now that you've really pissed me off, [sinisterly] I'm gonna finish her, nice and slow. [Spider-Man gets furious.] M.J. and I...we're gonna have a Hell of a time. [The Green Goblin lunges his trident to stab Spider-Man, but Spider-Man stops it, and the Green Goblin flies backwards to another brick wall. Spider-Man crushes the Green Goblin with it. The Green Goblin gets up, and Spider-Man beats him up] Peter, stop! Stop! It's me. [takes off his mask, revealing Norman Osborn]
Peter Parker: Mr. Osborn.
Norman Osborn: Peter, thank God for you.
Peter Parker: You killed those people on that balcony.
Norman Osborn: The Goblin killed them, I had nothing to do with it! Don't–don't let him take me again. I beg you, protect me!
Peter Parker: You tried to kill Aunt May. You tried to kill Mary Jane.
Norman Osborn: But not you. I've tried to stop it, but I couldn't stop it. I would never hurt you. [As Norman speaks, his Green Goblin persona presses the button on his suit, and his glider rises behind Peter.] I knew from the beginning. If anything ever happened to me, i–it was you that I could count on. You, Peter Parker, would save me, and so you have. Thank God for you. [Norman stands up] Give me your hand. Believe in me, as I believed in you. I've been like a father to you. Be a son to me now.
Peter Parker: I have a father. His name was Ben Parker.
Green Goblin: Godspeed, Spider-Man.
[warned by his spider sense, Peter flips just as the Green Goblin's glider was about to impale him.]
Norman Osborn: Oh. [gets impaled by his own glider, and groans in pain and blood loss.] [last words; weakly] Peter, Don't tell Harry. [Norman collapses and dies, and Peter lowers his head down.]

[last line]
Peter Parker: Whatever life holds in store for me, I will never forget these words: "With great power comes great responsibility." This is my gift, my curse. Who am I? I'm Spider-Man.

About Spider-Man (2002 film)[edit]

  • Movies hadn’t been doing the sort of opening-weekend business that’s fairly common – even expected – today. The first Harry Potter came out about six months before us and it was this phenomenon from Day one. It was so wild because it was a new thing at that moment – and I’m not saying that hasn’t happened in movie history, but at the time that was a big jump. and then that happened with us. People didn’t anticipate [2002’s Spider- Man] to be like that. Leading up to it you start to get reactions and people tell you, you know, what the tracking is and what range your opening weekend box office is likely to be. but for me it was kind of unexpected. So much shifted in my life the weekend the movie came out. it was shocking.
