Mary Jane: So you just came by?
Peter Parker: I was in the neighborhood, needed to see a friendly face. I took three buses and a cab to *get* in the neighborhood, but... So how'd it go?

Peter Parker: Lemme buy you a cheeseburger. The sky's the limit, up to seven dollars... and eighty-four cents.

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."

Peter Parker: Well, something like that.

[in Aunt May's hospital room]
Peter Parker: [relating to M.J. what he supposedly said to Spider-man] I said, um, Spider-man, I said, uh, the great thing about M.J. 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: Oh, something like that...

Peter Parker: I want you to know, that I will always be there for you; I will always be there to take care of you. I promise you that. I will always be your friend.
Mary Jane: Only a friend, Peter Parker?
Peter Parker: That's all I have to give...

Mary Jane: Thanks for sticking up for me, Harry.
Harry Osborn: You heard?
Mary Jane: Everyone heard that creep.
Harry Osborn: That creep is my father, all right! If I'm lucky, I'll become half of what he is. So just keep your mouth shut about stuff you don't understand!

Peter Parker: How was your audition?
Mary Jane: How did you know?
Peter Parker: Hotline... your mom, told my aunt, told me...

Mary Jane: They said I need acting lessons. Can you believe that? A soap opera told me I need acting lessons.

Mary Jane: I wanna... act. On stage.
Peter Parker: Really? Well that's perfect. You were awesome in all the school plays.
Mary Jane: Really?
Peter Parker: Yeah. I cried like a baby when you played Cinderella.
Mary Jane: Peter, that was first grade.
Peter Parker: Well, even so...

Mary Jane: You're amazing.

[last lines]
Mary Jane Watson: Go get 'em, tiger.

Peter Parker: [unmasked, holding up the collapsing wall] Hi!
Mary Jane Watson: Hi!
Peter Parker: This is really heavy... MJ, in case we die...
Mary Jane Watson: You do love me...
Peter Parker: I do.
Mary Jane Watson: Even though you said you didn't.
Peter Parker: [nods]

Mary Jane Watson: Do you love me?
Peter Parker: [pauses] ... No.

Mary Jane Watson: [standing at Peter Parker's door] Had to do what I had to do.
Peter Parker: Mary Jane.
Mary Jane Watson: Peter. I can't survive without you.
Peter Parker: You shouldn't be here.
Mary Jane Watson: 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 Watson: Well, say something.
Peter Parker: Thank you, Mary Jane Watson.
Mary Jane Watson: [They kiss, which is interrupted by police sirens. Peter stands, conflicted on whether he should respond. Mary Jane, with an accepting smile, responds:] Go get 'em, tiger.

Peter Parker: Would you think about it?
Mary Jane Watson: Think about what?
Peter Parker: Picking up where we left off.
Mary Jane Watson: Where was that? We never got on. You can't get off if you don't get on Peter.

Peter Parker: Can I get you a drink.
Mary Jane Watson: I'm with John, he'll get me my drink.
Peter Parker: John...
Mary Jane Watson: By the way, John has seen my show 5 times. Harry has seen it twice. Aunt May has seen it. My sick mother got out of bed to see it. Even my father, he came backstage to borrow cash. But my best friend who cares so much about me, can't make 8 o'clock curtain. After all these years, he's nothing to me but an empty seat.

Mary Jane Watson: [sees Peter Parker approach her] Oh... you.
Peter Parker: Listen, I'm sorry, but there was a disturbance.
Mary Jane Watson: I don't know you and I can't keep thinking about you. It's too painful.
Peter Parker: I've been reading poetry lately.
Mary Jane Watson: Whatever that means.
Peter Parker: Day by day he gazed upon her, Day by day he sighed with passion, Day by day...
Mary Jane Watson: [Interrupts Parker] Don't start.

Mary Jane Watson: Peter I'm getting married.
Spider-Man: I've always imagined you getting you married on a hill top.
Mary Jane Watson: Who's the groom?
Spider-Man: You hadn't decided yet.

Spider-Man: [after getting reprimanded by Mary Jane] I don't think it's that simple.
Mary Jane Watson: Of course you don't! Because you complicate things!

Mary Jane Watson: [Dr. Octavius has tied up MJ and is busy working on other stuff] Hey! I'm talking to you! You got what you needed for your little science project. Now let me go!
Dr. Otto Octavius: I can't let you go. You'd bring the police. Not that anyone can stop me now that Spider-Man is dead.
Mary Jane Watson: He's not dead. I don't believe you.
Dr. Otto Octavius: Believe it.
[he puts on his goggles and starts up the machine]

[Peter is talking on M.J.'s answering machine]
Peter Parker: I know you were afraid I would disappoint you.
Mary Jane Watson: Bingo.

Mary Jane Watson: [in Aunt May's backyard] I liked seeing you tonight, Peter.
Peter Parker: Oh boy, yeah...
Mary Jane Watson: Oh boy, yeah, what?
Peter Parker: Nothing.
Mary Jane Watson: You want to say something?
Peter Parker: I... was... wondering if you're still in the village...
Mary Jane Watson: You're such a mystery. Peter...
Peter Parker: What?
Mary Jane Watson: Happy Birthday!

Mary Jane Watson: Could you lean your head back for me?
John Jameson: Sure...
[Leans his head back. M.J gives him an upside down kiss]
John Jameson: Wow... I'm back on the moon
[looks up at M.J]
John Jameson: You up there with me?

Mary Jane Watson: [on the giant spider web] I think I always knew all this time who you really were.
Peter Parker: Then you know why we can't be together. Spider-Man will always have enemies. I can't let you take that risk. I will always be Spider-Man. You and I can never be...

[Mary Jane has decided not to invite Peter to her wedding]

Peter Parker: Push you away? Why would I want to push you away... I love you!

Mary Jane Watson: [Peter jumps up to save Mary Jane] Peter. They're gonna kill us both.
Spider-Man: I'm gonna get you out of this.

Mary Jane Watson: Who are you?
Peter Parker: I don't know...

Mary Jane Watson: That was OUR kiss!

Mary Jane Watson: Tell me you love me?
Peter Parker: I love you... I love you so much. I always have.

Mary Jane Watson: Let me ask you something. When you kissed her, who was kissing her? Spider-man, or Peter?

Mary Jane Watson: You know what? I'd like to sing on stage for the rest of my life... with you in the first row.
Peter Parker: I'll be there.

Harry Osborn: It's a funny feeling, not knowing who you are. I get a bump on the head and I'm free as a bird.
Mary Jane Watson: Can you bump me on the head?
Harry Osborn: [taps MJ on the head] Bop!
Mary Jane Watson: [reacts to tap by throwing head back and laughing]

Mary Jane Watson: We've all done terrible things to each other, but we have to forgive each other. Or everything we ever were will mean nothing.

Peter Parker: I don't need your help.
Mary Jane Watson: Everybody needs help sometimes, Peter. Even Spider-Man.

Mary Jane Watson: Tell me again. Was I really good? I was so nervous. My knees were shaking.
Peter Parker: Your knees were fine.
Mary Jane Watson: The applause wasn't very loud.
Peter Parker: Yes, it was. Well, it's the acoustics. It's all about diffusion. It keeps the sound waves from grouping. You see when the sound waves, they propogate, then it's like an...
Mary Jane Watson: You are such a nerd.
