View Quote Ben: Hey, listen, Pete, we need to talk.
Peter: We can talk later.
Ben: We can talk now... if you'll let me.
Peter: Well, what's so important? Why do we need to talk now?
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: I didn't start that fight, I told you that.
Ben: Well, you sure as hell finished it.
Peter: What was I supposed to do, run away?
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: No. Not exactly.
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: 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.
Ben: I don't mean to lecture, and I don't mean to preach. And I know I'm not your father-
Peter: Then stop pretending to be!
View Quote Green Goblin: Spider-Man is all but invincible, but Parker… We can destroy him.
Norman: I can't.
Green Goblin: Betrayal must not be countenanced! Parker must be educated.
Norman: 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: Yes?
Green Goblin: And then grant his wish.
Norman: But how?
Green Goblin: The cunning warrior attacks neither body nor mind.
Norman: Tell me how!
Green Goblin: The heart, Osborn! First, we attack his heart.
View Quote Harry: [to driver in Rolls Royce] Uh, hey, could you drive us around the corner, please?
Norman: [sitting next to Harry] Why? The entrance is right there.
Harry: Dad, these are public school kids. I'm not showing up for a field trip in a Rolls.
Norman: 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: It wasn't for me.
Norman: Of course it was. Don't ever be ashamed of who you are.
Harry: I'm not ashamed of who I am. It's just...
Norman: Just what, Harry?
Harry: Forget it.
View Quote J. Jonah Jameson: Spider-Man. And the Green Goblin. "The Green Goblin." You like that?
Peter: Mr. Jameson–
Jameson: Made it up myself. These weirdos all got to have a name now.
Peter: Mr. Jameson, Spider-Man–
Jameson: [picks up phone] Hoffman!
Hoffman: Yeah?
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: Spider-Man wasn't attacking the city, he was trying to save it. That's slander.
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.
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 makes this country– (Huh?) [his cigar is thrown back in the window, lands in from of him, and the Green Goblin bursts through the The Daily Bugle window] (What the–?!)
Green Goblin: [grabbing Jameson by the throat] Jameson, you slime! Who's the photographer who takes the pictures of Spider-Man?
Jameson: I don't know who he is! His stuff comes in the mail!
Green Goblin: You're lying!
Jameson: I swear!
Green Goblin: He's the one who can take me to him!
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!
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!
View Quote M.J.: Has he mentioned me?
Peter: Yeah.
M.J.: What'd he say?
Peter: Uh... I said... he asked me what I thought about you.
M.J.: And what did you say?
Peter: 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."
M.J.: You said that?
Peter: Well, something like that.
View Quote Mary Jane: You're amazing.
Spider-Man: Some people don't think so.
M.J.: But you are.
Spider-Man: Nice to have a fan.
View Quote 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!
May: FROM EVIL!!
View Quote Peter Parker/Spider-Man: [saves Mary Jane] Well, beats taking the subway. Don't mind us, she just needs to use the elevator.
Mary Jane Watson: Wait. Who are you?
Peter/Spider-Man: You know who I am.
Mary Jane "M.J." Watson: I do?
Spider-Man: Your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man!
View Quote Peter: Can I do anything for you?
May: You do too much: College, a job, all this time with me– You're not Superman, you know.
View Quote Peter: I missed him a lot today.
May Parker: I know. I miss him too, but... he was there.
Peter: 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: You loved him. And he loved you. He never doubted the man you'd grow into; how you were meant for great things. I have no doubt in my mind that you won't disappoint him.
View Quote [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!
View Quote [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: Mr. Osborn...
Norman: Peter, thank God for you.
Peter: You killed those people on that balcony.
Norman: 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: You tried to kill Aunt May, you tried to kill Mary Jane...
Norman: 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: 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.]
Green Goblin: Oh.
Norman: [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.]
View Quote [first lines]
Peter: 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] Hell, I'd even take him. [he and the other kids see a distressed nerdy boy in thick glasses running along the bus, asking to stop] That's me.
View Quote [last line]
Peter: 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]
View Quote [Norman was drinking a cup of whiskey when he heard an evil laughter echoing around him]
Norman: Somebody there?
Green Goblin: Somebody.
Norman: Who said that?
Green Goblin: Don't play the innocent with me. You've known all along.
Norman: Where are you?
Green Goblin: Follow the cold shiver running down your spine.
[Norman searched wildly around his collection of masks in source of the voice]
Green Goblin: I'm right here!
[Norman turned around at the mirror, looking at his reflection]
Norman: I don't understand.
Green Goblin: Did you think it was coincidence? So many good things all happening for you. All for you... Norman.
Norman: What do you want?
Green Goblin: To say what you won't. To do what you can't. To remove those in your way.
Norman: [looking at the newspaper] The Board Members.. You've killed them.
Green Goblin: We killed them!
Norman: We?
Green Goblin: Remember... your little accident in the laboratory?
Norman: The performance enhancers.
Green Goblin: Bingo. Me! Your greatest creation. Bringing you what you've always wanted. Power beyond your wildest dreams and its only the beginning. There's only one who could stop us. Or imagine if he could joined us. [laughing evilly]
