Coffee Shop Waitress: How's the pie?
Harry Osborn: So good...

Peter Parker: Harry... she needs us.
Harry Osborn: Get out.

Peter Parker: [coming down to Harry's side along with Mary Jane] Hey, pal. How you doing?

Peter Parker: We'll get you through this.
Harry Osborn: [shakes his head slowly] No.
Peter Parker: I never should have hurt you... said those things.
Harry Osborn: None of that matters, Peter. You're my friend.
Peter Parker: Best friend.

Harry Osborn: Hey Bernard? Do I have any girlfriends?
Bernard: Not that I know of, sir.

Harry Osborn: You gonna kill me like you killed me father?
Peter Parker: I'm done trying to convince you.
Harry Osborn: You took him from me. He loved me.
Peter Parker: No. He despised you. You were an embarrassment to him.
[chuckles]
Peter Parker: Look at little Goblin Junior. Gonna cry?

Peter Parker: Stings doesn't it?
Harry Osborn: I protected you in high school. Now I'm gonna kick your little ass.
Peter Parker: Ooh.

Harry Osborn: [after topping his drink with an olive, Harry realizes that Peter is standing behind him] Would you like a drink? I'm sorry. What was I thinking? Bad for the public image, right, Mr. Key-to-the-City?
Peter Parker: [referring to Mary Jane] What did you do to her?
Harry Osborn: [Harry takes a sip of his drink] II did what you failed to do. I was there for her. Mary Jane and I, we understand each other.
Peter Parker: She doesn't know what you are.
Peter Parker: Peter, she knows me very well. And when she kissed me, it was just like she used to kiss me. That taste... Strawberries.

Harry Osborn: [taps MJ on the head] Bop!
Mary Jane Watson: [reacts to tap by throwing head back and laughing]

Harry Osborn: You knew this was coming Pete!
Peter Parker: Listen to me! I didn't kill your father!
Peter Parker: He was trying to kill me! He killed himself!
Harry Osborn: Shut up!

[a nurse compliments Harry about Peter and Mary Jane]
Harry Osborn: They're my best friends... I'd give my life for them.

Norman Osborn: You've taken your eye off the ball...
[Harry looks around, wondering who said that; he walks slowly towards his father's portrait and gazes hard at it, and then all his memories return with a crash]
Norman Osborn: Remember me!
Harry Osborn: Yes, Father. I remember.
Norman Osborn: I was right about you, about Peter... about everything. You know what you must do. Make him suffer, make him wish he were dead. First, we attack his heart!

Harry Osborn: [watching Spider-Man getting a kiss from Gwen Stacy] Hope Pete's getting a shot of this.


The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)
[from trailer]
Harry Osborn: What about Peter?
Norman Osborn: Not everyone has a happy ending...

[from trailer]
Harry Osborn: We LITERALLY can change the world!

[from trailer]
Harry Osborn: You're gonna wanna see this.
[shows Peter OsCorp records]
Harry Osborn: OsCorp had you under surveillance.
Peter Parker: Why?
Harry Osborn: Isn't that the question of the day?

Electro: You wanna be my friend?
Harry Osborn: I thought we were already friends.
Electro: I had a friend once. It didn't work out.
Harry Osborn: Yeah. Me too.
Electro: Then let's go catch a spider.

[from trailer]
Harry Osborn: It's been 10 years. What have you been up to?
Peter Parker: I do some web designs.

Harry Osborn: [to Electro] Psst! I'm gonna get you out of here, alright. But we don't have much time.
Electro: Who are you?
Harry Osborn: I'm Harry Osborn. I want to make you a deal.
Electro: I should kill you.
Harry Osborn: Oh, come on. Think bigger, Max. I'm not the one you want. You want Spider-Man and I can give him to you.

Norman Osborn: This is not how I imagined I would die. Looking at my son and seeing a stranger. You have such potential, Harry. Such fierce intelligence, and you're throwing it all away.
Harry Osborn: No, you threw me away. You kicked me off to boarding school when I was 11. On my 16th birthday, you sent me Scotch. Or one of your assistants did. I'm pretty sure because the card read: "With compliments, Norman Osborn."
Norman Osborn: I don't expect forgiveness from you anymore. I don't believe in miracles. How could you possibly understand that your childhood had to be sacrificed for something greater? And not just for me. For you! Has your hand started to twitch yet? When you lay awake and you feel it coming, hiding under your skin, waiting to show itself. To show you who you really are. Retro viral hyperplasia. I never told you that it's genetic. Our disease, the Osborn curse. And it began at your age. Let me see it. Your hand. Give it to me. The greatest inheritance I can give you isn't merely money. It's this. The sum total of all my work. Everything I did to stay alive. Maybe you can succeed where I failed.

Donald Menken: Harry, Oscorp's been under intense public scrutiny in the wake of Dr. Connors' recent, uh, breach of trust.
Harry Osborn: You mean people are pissed off because he tried to turn everyone in New York City into giant lizards.

Harry Osborn: [watches Peter skip a rock in the water] Dude. Nice arm.
Peter Parker: It's just the wrist. It's just all in the wrist, buddy.

Harry Osborn: What did you do?
Donald Menken: The more relevant question is what did you do? And an employee is killed and in your first action as CEO, you cover it up.
Harry Osborn: No, *you* covered it up. Then you buried him in the bughouse using my name.
Donald Menken: Ravencroft is a timeworn institution devoted to mental improvement.
Harry Osborn: You are experimenting on people in there.
Donald Menken: Progress has its stepping stones. Now, in light of your deceptive criminal actions, you've been... How do I put this gently? Fired.
Harry Osborn: You are not going to bury me, too.
Donald Menken: Looks to me like you're halfway in the ground already. It's only a matter of time. You're going to die a horrible death. Like your father. The difference is, no one is going to miss you.

Harry Osborn: How the tables have turned. I know it's hard to admit, but how spectacular a move is this? Am I right?
Electro: Right as rain.
Harry Osborn: Okay, so, Fairy Godmother, it is time to grant me a wish. I want in to Special...
Donald Menken: How dare you come back in here? You recalcitrant, unworthy, defective, urchin freaks.
[Electro zaps Menken]
Harry Osborn: Oh, God, sorry. That's just not the answer we were looking for.

Harry Osborn: You've made progress?
Gustav Fiers: I've identifies several worthy candidates. Now that Spider-Man's gone, this city will never be the same.
Harry Osborn: Oh, I'm counting on that.
Gustav Fiers: Speaking of progress, you're looking better.
Harry Osborn: It comes and goes. Tell me more.
Gustav Fiers: How many men did you have in mind?
Harry Osborn: I want to keep it small. Everything you need is already at OsCorp.

Harry Osborn: Peter Parker. It's like seeing a ghost.
Peter Parker: Hey, Harry.
Harry Osborn: Random. What, ten years?
Peter Parker: It's eight. But you're close.
Harry Osborn: What's up?
Peter Parker: I saw the news, man. I heard about your dad and I wanted to come and... Just wanted to come and see you. Check to see how you were doing.
Harry Osborn: I'm with some people. I'm in a... I'm in a meeting.
Peter Parker: Sorry, I don't wanna intrude. I know it's been a long time. I kind of know exactly what you're going through right now. And you were so there for me when my parents... Well, that's why I'm here for you.
Harry Osborn: Thank you.
Peter Parker: It's good to see you, man. It's good to see you. I'm sorry about your dad.
[turns to leave]
Harry Osborn: You got your braces off.
[Peter turns back to him again]
Harry Osborn: Now there's nothing to distract from your unibrow.
[they start to laugh]
Peter Parker: There he is. There he is! You still blow-dry your hair every morning?
Harry Osborn: Well, you know, one of my manservants holds the hair dryer. But I work the comb, okay? So at least I'm not completely helpless.
Peter Parker: You're stupid.
[they hug]

Harry Osborn: I'm sorry he never introduced us. I thought you two had broken up.
Gwen Stacy: Oh... Yeah. Yes, we had. And it's...
Harry Osborn: It's complicated.
Gwen Stacy: Complicated. Yeah.
Harry Osborn: I mean, it's Peter. Everything's always complicated with Peter.
Gwen Stacy: Yeah. Yeah... Yeah, you're right.
Harry Osborn: But that's why he needs you. Right? To help him make his choices clear.


Spider-Man (2002)
[Spider-Man takes Norman Osborn's body to his home and places him on his bed. Unfortunately, Harry discovers him... ]
Harry Osborn: What have you done? WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?
[He grabs a gun from a drawer, but finds Spider-Man gone... ]

[Harry arrives at his home, but hears a strange cackling laugh]
Harry Osborn: Hello?
[Harry slowly walks up the stairs and rounds a corner]
Harry Osborn: Dad!
Norman Osborn: [rather befuddled] Oh, hello, Harry...
[Harry turns to leave]
Norman Osborn: Harry... I just wanted to say how sorry I am that I haven't been much of a father to you.
Harry Osborn: It's okay. You're a busy man.
Norman Osborn: That's no excuse.
[he takes a slightly surprised and confused Harry in his arms and holds him for one long, precious moment]
Norman Osborn: Take care of yourself, son. Don't make the same mistake I did.

Mary Jane: [looking at spiders] Disgusting!
Harry Osborn: Yeah, I hate the little things.
Mary Jane: I love 'em.
Harry Osborn: Oh yeah, me too.

Peter Parker: Some spiders change colors to blend into their environment. It's a defense mechanism.
Harry Osborn: Peter, what possibly makes you think I would want to know that?
Peter Parker: Who wouldn't?

Harry Osborn: One day Spider-Man will pay. I swear on my father's grave Spider-Man will pay.

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!

[as Flash Thompson tries to beat up Peter Parker in school]
Mary Jane: Help him, Harry!
[one of Flash's buddies tries to tackle Peter from behind, Peter senses it and jumps, flipping over backward and landing on his feet]
Harry Osborn: Which one?

Harry Osborn: Where do you go all the time?
Peter Parker: Around...

Harry Osborn: [Flash and his gang are hassling Peter] Leave him alone.
Flash's Crony: Or what?
Flash Thompson: Or his father will fire your father!
[they laugh]
Flash Thompson: What's daddy gonna do, sue me?
Teacher: What is going on? The next person who talks will fail this course, I kid you not.

Harry Osborn: Peter, I'd like to introduce you to my father, Norman Osborn.
Peter Parker: It's an honour to meet you, Sir.

Harry Osborn: What the hell was that?


Spider-Man 2 (2004)
Harry Osborn: Now... lets see who's behind the mask
[pulls off the mask to reveal Peter]
Harry Osborn: [stumbles backwards] Peter? No... it can't be.
Peter Parker: [gets up] Harry, where is she? He's got MJ!
Harry Osborn: No... all he wanted was the tritium.
Peter Parker: Tritium? He's making the machine again. When he does, she'll die alone with half of New York, now where is he?
Harry Osborn: [pause] Peter... you killed my father.
Peter Parker: There are bigger things happening here than me and you.

[a troubled Harry holds his unused dagger in his hands, and broods over the revelations revealed to him. A door swings open, and he suddenly hears a cackling laugh... ]
Harry Osborn: Hello?
[he takes a few steps and then hears a noise]
Harry Osborn: ...?
Green Goblin: Son...
[Harry looks around]
Green Goblin: [in a mirror] I'm here.
Harry Osborn: Dad? I thought you were...
Green Goblin: No. I'm alive in you, Harry. You swore to make Spider-Man pay... now make him pay.
Harry Osborn: But Pete's my best friend!
Green Goblin: [serious] And I'm your father. You're weak. You were always weak and you will always be weak until you take control!
[calmly]
Green Goblin: Now you know the truth about Peter. Be stong Harry. Avenge me.
Harry Osborn: No...
Green Goblin: AVENGE ME!
Harry Osborn: NO!
[he hurls the dagger at the mirror, smashing it. Within it, he discovers, lies a secret room. To his shock, he discovers the Goblin mask, shelves of pumpkin bombs, tubes of green elixir, the glider and finally understands it all... ]

Harry Osborn: He's my best friend!
Green Goblin: And I'm your father!

Harry Osborn: [lamenting Otto's experiment] I'm ruined! I have nothing left - except Spider-Man...

Harry Osborn: Kill Spider-Man, I'll give you all the tritium you need. On second thought, bring him to me, alive.
Dr. Otto Octavius: How do I find him?
Harry Osborn: Peter Parker.
Dr. Otto Octavius: Parker?
Harry Osborn: He takes pictures of Spider-Man for the Bugle. Make him tell you where he is.
Dr. Otto Octavius: Have it ready.
[Runs down the building]
Harry Osborn: [shouts] Don't hurt Peter!

[Spider-Man rescues Harry]
Harry Osborn: This doesn't change anything.

Peter Parker: Um, I don't have time for girls right now.
Harry Osborn: What are you - dead?

[about Spider-Man]
Harry Osborn: He humiliated me by touching me.

Dr. Otto Octavius: [during the lab demonstration] Precious tritium is what makes this project go. There's only 25 pounds of it on the whole planet. I'd like to thank Harry Osborn and Oscorp Industries for providing it.
Harry Osborn: Happy to pay the bills, Otto.

Harry Osborn: Nobel Prize, Otto! We'll see you in Sweden!
Dr. Otto Octavius: [to Peter] Interesting person, your friend.

Peter Parker: [sees Harry drinking] Hey, you might wanna take it easy there, buddy.
Harry Osborn: What, it's a party... wouldn't you be drinking if you lost a bundle on some crackpot who you thought was gonna take him with you to fame and fortune? Not to mention your friend the bug.
Peter Parker: Not tonight Harry.
Harry Osborn: Every night! Until I find him it's 24/7.


Spider-Man 3 (2007) (VG)
Peter Parker: Harry, what are you doing here?
Harry: I realised you didn't kill my father. The darkness that consumed him almost finished me too, but you never turned away from me, even after everything I did.

Peter Parker: Harry, please, I didn't kill your dad!
Harry: Shut up! I don't want to hear any more of your lies!


"How It Should Have Ended: How Spider-Man 3 Should Have Ended (#1.18)" (2007)
Butler: The night your father died, I cleaned his wound. The blade that pierced his body came from his glider. There's no question that your father died by his own hands.
Harry Osborn: You are so fired.
Butler: What?
Harry Osborn: You've known that all this time and pick now to tell me?
Butler: I thought this would be the best time to tell you the truth.
Harry Osborn: I took a grenade to the face, dude!


"Ultimate Spider-Man: Venom (#1.4)" (2012)
Harry Osborn: I can't hold on!
[Harry slips, Mary Jane grabs him]
Harry Osborn: I think you just pulled out my only chest hair.
Mary Jane Watson: Sorry!


"The Spectacular Spider-Man: The Uncertainty Principle (#1.9)" (2008)
Spider-Man: This makes no sense. I'm Har- if this kid's the Goblin, why would he attack the Big Man? Why attack OsCorp?
Norman Osborn: I've had "dealings" with the Big Man. But when I tried to extricate myself, I was threatened by his stooge.
Harry Osborn: Hammerhead.
Norman Osborn: Harry must have overheard. Under the influence of the Green, his subconscious created someone who could take the Big Man down. Now, as to why he attacked me...
Harry Osborn: Maybe I've got some anger issues.
Norman Osborn: I will not allow this. I'll say I was the Goblin. After all, I invented the Green. I'm the obvious suspect.
Spider-Man: No. He needs you. And what good could you do him locked away for a crime you didn't commit?
Norman Osborn: Didn't I? This is all my fault. I drove Harry to... I will get him help, I swear. If you'll let me.
Spider-Man: Me?
Norman Osborn: If you turn him in, if the Big Man learns Harry was the Goblin, he wouldn't survive the night. Please. He's my only child.
Spider-Man: [to himself] And my best friend.
[to Osborn]
Spider-Man: The Goblin disappears. Forever. Leaving a mystery that never gets solved.
Norman Osborn: Thank you.


Spider-Man (2002) (VG)
Vulture: You can't match my agility!
Harry Osborn: You're right. I can *beat* you agility!
