The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)
[from trailer]
Dr. Curt Connors: Do you have any idea what you really are?

[from trailer]
Dr. Curt Connors: Ready to play God?

Dr. Curt Connors: I'm sure you're a very nice young man, but this is a home. Make an appointment with my office.
Peter Parker: Dr Connors? I'm Richard Parker's son.
Dr. Curt Connors: Peter?

Peter Parker: So you really think it's possible, cross-species genetics?
Dr. Curt Connors: Yes. Of course. But for years, your father and I were mocked for our theories. Not just in the community at large, but also at OsCorp, as well. They called us mad scientists. And then your father bred the spiders, and everything changed. The result were beyond encouraging. They were spectacular. We were going to change the lives of millions. Including my own. Then it was over. He... He was gone. Took his research with him. And I knew without him, I... I... I was angry. So I stayed from you and your family. And for that, I'm truly sorry.

[from trailer]
Dr. Curt Connors: If you want the truth, Peter, come and get it!

Dr. Curt Connors: Did you know there's rumor of a new species in New York? Beautiful but quite large.
Peter Parker: What do you know about it? Have you seen it?
Dr. Curt Connors: No, it's not yet classified. But it can be aggressive... if threatened.

[Parker completes Connors' formula]
Dr. Curt Connors: Extraordinary. How did you come up with this?

Dr. Curt Connors: "That, changing like the snake, I might be free to cast off flesh wherein I dwell confined."
[quoting from Michaelangelo's poem The Silkworm]

Man in the Shadows: Hello, doctor! Did you tell the boy?
Dr. Curt Connors: Tell him what?
Man in the Shadows: Did you tell the boy the truth about his father?
Dr. Curt Connors: NO!
Man in the Shadows: Well, that's very good. Cause I will let him be for now.
Dr. Curt Connors: You should LEAVE HIM ALONE!

Dr. Curt Connors: Welcome. My name is Dr. Curtis Connors. And yes, in case you're wondering, I'm a southpaw. I'm not a cripple, I'm a scientist, and I am the world's most foremost authority in herpetology. That's reptiles, for those of you who don't know.

Dr. Curt Connors: I spent my life as a scientist trying to create a world without weakness, without outcasts. I sought to create a stronger human being, but there's no such thing. Human beings are weak, pathetic, feeble-minded creatures. Why be a human at all when we can be so much more? Faster, stronger, smarter. This is my gift to you.


Spider-Man 3 (2007) (VG)
Spider-Man: [after curing the Lizards] Let's not do that again.
Dr. Connors: I'm so sorry, Spider-Man, for all of this.
Spider-Man: It's OK, Doc. You're a good man. I wish good intentions were all it took. See you around, Doc, be well.

Dr. Connors: [having a nightmare] No... no... no!
Dr. Connors: [wakes up] Who? Spider-Man?
Spider-Man: Easy, Doc. I need your help. Some of your lizards are still on the loose.
Dr. Connors: Oh, dear God. Not more. What did I do?
Spider-Man: Take the guilt ship later. You have to help me find a way to reverse the effects.
Dr. Connors: Yes, yes, of course. If you can get me a sample of the regeneration serum from my lab, I can engineer an antidote.
Spider-Man: Your lab at the university?
Dr. Connors: No... the Lizard... *I* had another lab down in the sewer.
Spider-Man: I'll get the serum, be ready.
Dr. Connors: When you have it, meet me at the university lab. I will set things right again.

Dr. Connors: [recording his experiment on a video] Dr. Curt Connors. Time is 8:47 PM. Ahem. Well, my regeneration serum is finally ready to test on a human - and what better guinea pig then myself. I-I know there are risks, but I can't allow a twist of fate to undo the natural order when science can correct it. If the unthinkable happens, please see that my wife and son get this letter.
Dr. Connors: [injects serum through a syringe] Ow! Stings more than I expected.
Dr. Connors: I feel... something... happening.
[screams]

Morbius: [to Dr. Connors] Curt Connors. Something came over me. I can't explain...
Dr. Connors: Don't worry. I understand. Better than you know.
Spider-Man: We both do.


Spider-Man 3 (2007)
Dr. Curt Connors: ...Don't let any of that get on you.
Peter Parker: Why?
Dr. Curt Connors: It has the characteristics of a symbiote, which needs to bond to a host in order to survive. And once it binds... it can be hard to UNbind.

Dr. Curt Connors: It enhances aggression...
[the symbiote slithers towards Peter, but it's quickly trapped under a glass]
Dr. Curt Connors: It seems to like you.


Spider-Man 2 (2004)
Peter Parker: Dr. Connors. Sorry.
Dr. Curt Connors: Where were you headed, Parker?
Peter Parker: To your class.
Dr. Curt Connors: My class is over. See me standing here?
Peter Parker: I'm sorry. I'm trying. I wanna be here.
Dr. Curt Connors: Then be here. Look at you, Peter. Your grades have been steadily declining. You're late for class. You always appear exhausted. Your paper on fusion is still overdue.
Peter Parker: I know. I'm planning to write it on Dr. Otto Octavius.
Dr. Curt Connors: Planning is not a major at this university. Octavius is a friend of mine. Better do your research, Parker. Get it done, or I'm failing you.
