Captain Barbera: Where's the money, Monahan? Where's the 5.000 big ones?
Monahan: There must have been somebody else in the car.
Captain Barbera: Wrong, Monahan. Wrong. He was a lone wolf. But a crazy lone wolf. Look at 'em. Driving right into a brick wall. Can you explain all this to me, please?

Captain Barbera: Where's the money?
Professor Noah Tyler: [in hospital bed] What money?
Captain Barbera: Who told you to rob that payroll?
Professor Noah Tyler: I don't know.
Captain Barbera: Well, professor, you don't have very many answers.
Professor Noah Tyler: I'm afraid you know more about this than I do.
Captain Barbera: Then we're both in trouble. Who's the big mastermind? Who's the screwball that put this idea in your head?
Professor Noah Tyler: I... I don't know.
Captain Barbera: We're back to square one.
Professor Noah Tyler: I don't even know when it was done.
Captain Barbera: And I was saving the easiest question till last...

J. Jonah Jameson: Congratulations, Captain. Those men whould have flown away if you hadn't called their bluf.
Captain Barbera: Well, to tell you the truth, eh, I had a little help. That character in the clown suit, eh, he worked out pretty good.
J. Jonah Jameson: That freak! He ought to be locked up. Running around like a one-man army. I don't know where he came from, but I sure hope he goes back there.
Captain Barbera: Maybe you're right. People shouldn't interfere with the law. Let the police do that.
J. Jonah Jameson: Exactly. You men deserve all the credit for this job.
Captain Barbera: Well, if that's the way you're gonna put it in your paper, how can I stop ya?
[they laugh and pat each other on the back]

Captain Barbera: Oh, that's funny, we had the same idea!

Peter Parker: Excuse me, Sir, you say you saw Spider-Man right here in this lab?

Captain Barbera: What difference does it make? Who else whould come in the window?
Gale Hoffman: Most cat burglars come in windows.

Captain Barbera: Really? I could say the same thing about you.

J. Jonah Jameson: You did an excellent job, Captain.
Captain Barbera: Why thank you, sir. I'd like to take all the credit, but I have to admit I couldn't have pulled it off without Spider-Man.
Peter Parker: Oh, well, he'd be delighted to hear you say that, Captain, you mind if the Bugle quotes you on that?
J. Jonah Jameson: Not on your life! I'm not giving any recognition to some freak who runs around in a red and blue union suit!
