Spider-Man (2002)
[Norman hears the Green Goblin cackling]
Norman Osborn: Is somebody there?
Green Goblin: [mocking] Somebody?
Norman Osborn: Who are you?
Green Goblin: Don't play the innocent with ME - you've known all along!
Norman Osborn: Where are you?
Green Goblin: Follow the cold shiver running down your spine...
[Norman wildly searches among his collection of masks for the source of the voice]
Green Goblin: [impatiently] I'm right HERE!
[Norman turns and confronts his reflection in a mirror]
Norman Osborn: I, I don't understand...
Green Goblin: Did you think it was coincidence - so many good things happening for you, all for you, Norman?
[He drains Norman's glass and hurls it away]
Norman Osborn: What do you want?
Green Goblin: To say what you won't, to do what you can't - to *remove* those in your way...
[He holds up a newspaper which Norman examines. The main headlines state the murder of the Oscorp Board of Governors at the hands of the Green Goblin]
Norman Osborn: The Board Members - you killed them!
Green Goblin: WE killed them!
Norman Osborn: We?
Green Goblin: Remember? Your little "accident" in the laboratory...?
Norman Osborn: 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 is only one who could stop us - or imagine if he joined us...
[as Norman watches in fear, the Goblin bares his teeth in an utterly manic grin... ]

[first words]
Green Goblin: Back to formula!
[he hurls Doctor Strong through glass and leaps after him, baring his teeth]

Green Goblin: [hurling a pumpkin bomb at the Oscorp Board of Governors] OUT, AM I?
[He quickly sends his glider over to Mary Jane]
Green Goblin: Hello, my dear!
[MJ screams]

Norman Osborn: What do you want?
Green Goblin: To say what you won't, to do what you can't, to remove those in your way.

Green Goblin: [the Green Goblin has just pummeled Spider-Man] Misery, Misery, Misery, that's what you've chosen. I offered you friendship and you spat in my face.
[Green Goblin continues to beat Spider-Man]
Green Goblin: You've spun your last web, Spider-Man. If you had 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. MJ and I, we're gonna have a hell of a time!
Green Goblin: [Green Goblin lunges forward, but Spider-Man blocks and pushes him into a brick wall] Peter, Peter, stop, it's me!
Spider-Man: [Green Goblin takes off his mask, revealing Norman Osborn] Mr. Osborn...
Green Goblin: Oh, Peter, thank God for you...
Spider-Man: You killed those people on that balcony!
Norman Osborn: The Goblin did it, I had nothing to do with it! Please, don't let him take me again! I beg of you, protect me!
Spider-Man: You tried to kill Aunt May! You tried to kill Mary Jane!
Norman Osborn: But not you? I tried to stop it, I couldn't stop it.
[Norman pushes a button on his suit and the glider rises]
Norman Osborn: If anything happened to me, I knew it was you who would save me and so you have, Peter thank god for you
Norman Osborn: [Norman rises up] Give me your hand, I've been like a father to you. Be a son to me now.
Spider-Man: I had a father, his name was Ben Parker.
Green Goblin: Godspeed, Spider-Man
Norman Osborn: [Warned by spider-sense, Spider-Man black flips over the oncoming glider] Oh!
[the glider impales Norman]
Norman Osborn: Peter, don't tell Harry.

Green Goblin: [lands in front of Spider-Man on a rooftop] Wake up little spider, no you're not dead yet just paralysed. You're an amazing creature, Spider-Man. You and I are not so different.
Spider-Man: 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 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. Why bother?
Spider-Man: Because it's right.
Green Goblin: [slaps 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.
[leans in and grabs Spider-Man's neck]
Green Goblin: 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 on the glider]
Green Goblin: Think about it, hero!

[the Goblin crashes through the Daily Bugle office]
Green Goblin: [grabbing Jameson by the throat] Jameson you slime! Who's the photographer who takes 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] Settle down, tough guy.
Green Goblin: [drops Jameson and turns around on the glider] Speak of the Devil!

Green Goblin: We'll meet again, Spider-Man!

Green Goblin: Follow the cold shiver running down your spine.

Green Goblin: Can Spider-Man come out to play?

Green Goblin: You've spun your last web, Spider-Man.

Green Goblin: [to Spider-Man] You and I are not so different.
Spider-Man: I'm not like you. You're a murderer.
Green Goblin: Well... to each his own.

[singing]
Green Goblin: The itsy bitsy spider climbed up the water spout. Down came the Goblin and took the spider out.

Aunt May: Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us...
[the Green Goblin bursts through the window]
Aunt May: [screams] DELIVER US!
Green Goblin: [laughing maniacally] Finish it. FINISH IT!
Aunt May: FROM EVIL!

Green Goblin: 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.

Green Goblin: M.J. and I, we're gonna have a hell of a time.

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*!

[In the burning building]
Green Goblin: You're pathetically predictable, like a moth to the flame. What about my generous proposal? Are you in or are you out?
Spider-Man: It's you who's out, Gobbie. Out of your mind.
Green Goblin: Wrong answer.

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!

Green Goblin: Godspeed, Spider-Man.

Green Goblin: I offered you friendship, and you spat in my face.

Green Goblin: The one thing they love more than a hero is to see a hero fail.


Spider-Man (2002) (VG)
Green Goblin: There's no need for us to fight!
Spider-Man: Yeah, once you stop lobbing bombs at me, we'll see about that!

Green Goblin: You don't seem like you're enjoying yourself! Aren't you having any fun?
Spider-Man: Um... no.

Green Goblin: How can you be so naive? These people would never lay a finger to help you!
Spider-Man: Well since they don't have the power to fly or bend steel with their bare hands I can't say I blame them!

Green Goblin: Tough day at the office, hun? Mine was a killer!

Green Goblin: Tell Harry... I'm sorry...
Spider-Man: I'm sorry too.

Spider-Man: Who are you? wait let me guess, "The Emerald Elf"?
Green Goblin: Me? I'm just a concerned citizen, helping to clean up our fair city!

Green Goblin: Can't you see we're cut from the same cloth? We aren't like normal people!
Spider-Man: Speak for yourself!

Green Goblin: Run! Run! 'Fast as you can...
Spider-Man: The ginger-bread man you're *not*!

Green Goblin: Running away? I'm not done with you yet!
Spider-Man: That's what I'm afraid of!

Green Goblin: Let's find some new people to play with, shall we?
Spider-Man: I'd like to vote against that.

Green Goblin: You're boring me, Spiderman!
Spider-Man: Hey where you going?

Green Goblin: I've been burning bridges all day, I think I'll just knock this one down.


Spider-Man 3 (2007)
Spider-Man: You came.
New Goblin: Looks like just in the nick of time.
Spider-Man: A couple of minutes ago wouldn't have been so bad either.
New Goblin: [Smiles] What are you gonna do?

New Goblin: If you wanna see Peter alive again, you're gonna do something for me.

New Goblin: If you want Peter to live, you're going to do something for me.

Spider-Man: [both at top speed on the New Goblin's Sky Stick] This thing got any more?
New Goblin: Hang on!
Spider-Man: To what?

Spider-Man: [back-to-back with the New Goblin facing Venom] I could use some help over here!
New Goblin: [facing the giant Sandman] I'm a little busy right now!

Green Goblin: I went to other worlds to bring Spider-Man D.N.A. And along the way, I discovered Spider-Man's identity. It surprised me at first. But the more I thought about it, the more it made sense. It was obvious. You and my son. Always there. Always in my way!
Spider-Man: So you figured out my identity. Congrats. But I've handled everything you've thrown at me, Gobby. I can handle this, too.

Green Goblin: No quips or jokes? Where's your sense of humor, Peter?
Spider-Man: Don't worry, Gobby. I'm laughing on the inside.

Green Goblin: What about your friends, Peter? Should I visit them, too? I know where Harry Osborn lives, could you protect him as well?
Spider-Man: You wouldn't harm your own son, Norman. You love your son.
Green Goblin: Norman? What are you talking about? I am the Goblin! Love? Love is a weakness. Goblin has no weaknesses. Because Goblin loves NO ONE!

Spider-Goblin: Spiders from other worlds? Here?
Spider-Man: What's more fun than one friendly neighborhood Spider-Man? How about seven!
Spider-Ham: Seven Spideys. Tell me there's a reasonable explanation for this.
Ultimate Spider-Man: A pig in a Spider-Man costume wanted a reasonable explanation. And it was the best day ever. Look at this.

Sandman: Got any clever little quips for me, web-head?

New Goblin: Spidey, hitch a ride!

New Goblin: Looked like you could use a hand!

Harry Osborn: ...?
Green Goblin: Son...
[Harry looks around]
Green Goblin: [in a mirror] I'm here.

Green Goblin: No. I'm alive in you, Harry. You swore to make Spider-Man pay... now make him pay.

Spider-Ham: Not by the hair of my chinny-chin-chin.

Green Goblin: I call this court to order. You are all charged with the crime of hypocrisy; a crime that destroyed Norman Osborn.
[J. Jonah Jameson]
Green Goblin: You claimed to be his friend, yet you filled your newspaper with stories to ruin his reputation!

Hammerhead: You think I'm afraid of a goofball dressed for Halloween? Don't respect what you don't fear, and there has only been one man that I have feared enough to respect.
Green Goblin: The Big Man, alias L. Thompson Lincoln. You see, I've peeked behind *his* mask...
Hammerhead: Lincoln *is* the mask! The *real* Big Man's Tombstone, 'cause that's all that's left after you cross him.
Green Goblin: In that case, then a man in your position would surely have acquired...
[extends tongue blade of glader towards Hammerhead's throat]
Green Goblin: ... *life insurance*.

Green Goblin: Why don't you just give up?
Spider-Man: Because I know your secret. I know whose face is behind that mask.
