Peter Parker
Not everyone is meant to make a difference. But for me, the choice to lead an ordinary life is no longer an option."

Peter Parker and Aunt May
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!"

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 your average ordinary guy, not a care in the world... somebody lied."​

Spider-Man and Mary Jane
Spider-Man: "You have a knack for getting in trouble."
Mary Jane: "You have a knack for saving my life. I think I have a superhero stalker."
Spider-Man: "I was in the neighborhood."​

Green Goblin
"​The itsy bitsy spider climbed up the waterspout. Down came the Goblin and took the spider out."​

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 Spiderman."​

Green Goblin
"No matter what you do for them, eventually, they will hate you."​

Green Goblin
"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 and me… We're exceptional."​

Peter Parker
Some spiders change colors to blend into their environment. It's a defense mechanism."

Peter Parker and J. Jonah Jameson
Peter Parker: "Spider-Man wasn't trying to attack 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
"No matter what I do, no matter how hard I try, the ones I love will always be the ones who pay…"

Peter Parker and Aunt May
Peter Parker (about Uncle Ben): "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."
Aunt May: "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."

Green Goblin and Spider-Man
Green Goblin: "Spider-Man. This is why only fools are heroes… because you never know when some lunatic will come along with a sadistic choice. Let die the woman you love... or suffer the little children. Make your choice, Spider-Man, and see how a hero is rewarded."
Spider-Man: "Don't do it, Goblin."
Green Goblin: "We are who we choose to be... now choose!"

Spider-Man 2

May Parker
"Too few characters out there, flying around like that, saving old girls like me. And Lord knows, kids like Henry need a hero. Courageous, self-sacrificing people. Setting examples for all of us. Everybody loves a hero. People line up for them, cheer them, scream their names. And years later, they'll tell how they stood in the rain for hours just to get a glimpse of the one who taught them how to hold on a second longer. I believe there's a hero in all of us, that keeps us honest, gives us strength, makes us noble, and finally allows us to die with pride, even though sometimes we have to be steady, and give up the thing we want the most. Even our dreams…"

Harry Osborn and Spider-Man
Harry Osborn: "Peter... you killed my father!"
Spider-Man: "There are bigger things happening here than me and you."

Dr. Davis and Spider-Man
Dr. Davis: "You say you can't sleep. Heartbreak? Bad Dreams?"

Dr. Davis: "Oh. So you're Spider-Man..."
Spider-Man: (interrupts Dr. Davis) "In my dream... Actually, it's not even my dream, it's a friend of mine's dream."
Dr. Davis: "Oh. Somebody else's dream. What about this friend? Why does he climb these walls? What does he think of himself?"
Spider-Man: "That's the problem, he doesn't know what to think."
Dr. Davis: "Kind of makes you mad not to know who you are? Your soul disappears, nothing is bad as uncertainty. Listen, maybe you're not supposed to be Spider-Man climbing those walls? That's why you keep falling. You'll always have a choice, Peter."
Spider-Man: (whispers) "I have a choice."

Mary Jane and Spider-Man
Mary Jane: "Peter. I can't survive without you."
Peter Parker: "You shouldn't be here."
Mary Jane: "I know you think we can't be together, but can't you respect me enough to let me make my own decision? I know there'll be risks but I want to face them with you. It's wrong that we should be only half alive... half of ourselves. I love you. So here I am… standing in your doorway. I have always been standing in your doorway. Isn't it about time somebody saved your life?"
Mary Jane: "Well, say something…"
Peter Parker: "Thank you, Mary Jane."

Mary Jane and Spider-Man

Doc Ock: "Not anymore."

Mary Jane and Spider-Man
Mary Jane: (on the giant spider web) "I think I always knew all this time who you really were."

Dr. Otto Octavius

Dr. Otto Octavius
"I will not die a monster."

Peter Parker
"She looks at me every day. Mary Jane. Oh boy! If she only knew how I felt about her."

Peter Parker

Mr. Ditkovich

Dr. Otto Octavius: "Never fails."

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..."
