Spider-Man 3 (2007)
Tobey Maguire: Spider-Man, Peter Parker
Peter Parker : Whatever comes our way, whatever battle we have raging inside us, we always have a choice. My friend Harry taught me that. He chose to be the best of himself. It's the choices that make us who we are, and we can always choose to do what's right.
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.
[sees tears in Harry's eyes]
Peter Parker : Oh. Look at little Goblin Junior. Gonna cry?
[Peter knocks Harry unconscious on the wall shelf and walks away. Harry tries to throw a pumpkin bomb at Peter, but Peter throws it back at Harry's face, disfiguring it]
Flint Marko : [looks down at the crowd below] I didn't want this. But I had no choice...
Peter Parker : We always have a choice. You had a choice when you killed my uncle.
Flint Marko : My daughter was dying, I needed money.
[flashback: Flint knocks on the car window with a gun]
Flint Marko : I was scared. I told your uncle all I wanted was the car. He said to me "Why don't you just put down the gun and go home?" I realise now he was just trying to help me.
[Uncle Ben tells Flint to put down the gun and go home, just when Flint's partner exits a nearby building with the money]
Flint Marko : Then I saw my partner running over with the cash... and the gun was in my hand...
[he shakes Flint's arm - causing him to shoot Uncle Ben. Flint realizes this]
Flint Marko : I did a terrible thing to you, I spent a lot of nights wishing I could take it back.
[Flint's partner drives off with the car, but Flint stays by Uncle Ben's side]
Flint Marko : [to Peter] I'm not asking you to forgive me. I just want you to understand.
Peter Parker : I've done terrible things too.
Flint Marko : I didn't choose to be this. The only thing left of me now... is my daughter.
Peter Parker : [after a pause] I forgive you.
Peter Parker : You're trash, Brock.
Eddie Brock : Excuse me?
Peter Parker : [Peter drops evidence on Eddie's desk revealing that his picture had been modified] Your picture's a fake.
Eddie Brock : Oh, Parker, you are such a boy scout. When are you going to give a guy a break?
Peter Parker : [Peter grabs Eddie and pushes him into his framed fake picture; Bugle workers all look at them] You want forgiveness? Get religion.
Joseph 'Robbie' Robertson : What's going on here?
Miss Brant : Are you guys all right?
Eddie Brock : Yeah. No, we - We're just horsing around.
[quietly to Peter]
Eddie Brock : Look, I'm begging you. If you do this, I will lose everything. There's not a paper in town that will hire me.
Peter Parker : You should've thought of that earlier.
Joseph 'Robbie' Robertson : What are you doing, Peter?
Peter Parker : [gives evidence to Robbie and walks away] Show this to your editor. Tell him to check his source next time.
Peter Parker : [coming down to Harry's side along with Mary Jane] Hey, pal. How you doing?
Harry Osborn : [sarcastically] Been better.
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.
Peter Parker : Flint Marko. The man who killed Uncle Ben, he was killed last night.
Aunt May : Oh, my. What happened?
Peter Parker : Spider-Man killed him.
Aunt May : Spider-Man? I don't understand, Spider-Man doesn't kill people. What happened?
Peter Parker : I, uh... He... he was... I thought that - That you'd feel... He deserved it, didn't he?
Aunt May : I don't think it's for us to say whether a person deserves to live or die.
Peter Parker : But, Aunt May, he killed Uncle Ben.
Aunt May : Uncle Ben meant the world to us. But he wouldn't want us living one second with revenge in our hearts. It's like a poison. It can - It can take you over. Before you know it, turn us into something ugly.
Mr. Ditkovitch : Rent!
[Peter walks nervously to his apartment]
Peter Parker : Not now!
Mr. Ditkovitch : This is a free country, not a rent-free country.
[Peter tries to open his apartment door while getting cornered by Mr. Ditkovitch]
Peter Parker : Leave me alone.
Mr. Ditkovitch : Give me rent!
Peter Parker : You get you're rent if you fix this DAMN DOOR!
[Mr. Ditkovitch is visibly perplexed. Peter manages to get the door open and walks inside]
Aunt May : How's Mary Jane?
Peter Parker : I don't know.
Aunt May : I never heard from you. Did you ever propose?
Peter Parker : You said a husband's gotta put his wife before himself.
[puts the ring in her hand]
Peter Parker : I'm not ready.
Aunt May : But what happened? You seemed so sure.
Peter Parker : Yeah. I, uh... I hurt her, Aunt May. I don't know what to do.
Aunt May : Well, you start by doing the hardest thing: You forgive yourself. I believe in you, Peter. You're a good person. And I know you'll find a way to put it right.
[places the ring on the TV]
Aunt May : In time.
Peter Parker : [Narrating] It's me! Peter Parker! Your friendly neighborhood... You know. I've come a long way from becoming the boy who was bitten by a spider. Back then, nothing seemed to go right for me, and now...
Kid in Times Square : [pointing at a giant screen in Times Square] Hey look, it's Spider-Man!
Peter Parker : [Narrating] People really like me.
Eddie Brock : Hey. I'm the new guy.
Spider-Man : New guy?
Eddie Brock : From now on, I am gonna be taking shots of you for the Bugle. So smile. Are you smiling? Just kidding.
Spider-Man : They got a guy.
Eddie Brock : Who, Parker? Um, yeah, look, just between you and me, guys kind of an amateur. Have you noticed his stuff makes you a little bloated? Just - Yeah, a little chunky.
Spider-Man : Okay.
Eddie Brock : But you don't have to worry about that, buddy.
[Harry, chasing Peter, throws one of his many devices at him. As it explodes and becomes a razor bat... ]
Peter Parker : Hate those things!
Peter Parker : Hey, Mr. Ditkovitch.
Mr. Ditkovitch : An orange?
Peter Parker : No, thanks. Listen, I'm really sorry for what happened earlier. I shouldn't have yelled about that door. It was nothing to be angry about.
Mr. Ditkovitch : Ah, it's no big deal. But if you feel that bad about it, you can buy me pizza some time. Today's good.
Peter Parker : Okay.
Mr. Ditkovitch : Problem with the phone?
Peter Parker : No, no. I was just - Well, I was trying to figure out what to say.
Mr. Ditkovitch : If it's a woman you're calling, then you say: "You're good woman. I'm good man..."
Peter Parker : [confused stare]
Mr. Ditkovitch : Hm?
Ursula : Hi, Pete.
Peter Parker : Hi.
Mr. Ditkovitch : He's calling a woman.
Ursula : Are you calling Mary Jane? I think that would be so good...
Mr. Ditkovitch : This is none of your business. Go. Go.
Mr. Ditkovitch : Call.
Spider-Man : Shazam!
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] I 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.
Eddie Brock : [as Black Suited Spider-Man gets ready to plunge into the sewer and pursue Sandman] Whoa. Buddy, love the new outfit. This is exactly what I need to scoop Parker. Gimme - Give me some of that web action.
Spider-Man : [slings a string of web, grabs Eddie's camera and slams it against the wall breaking it] See ya, chump.
Eddie Brock : [shouts at Spider- man who is already jumped down the sewer] What the hell?
Crowd : [cheering] Kiss him! Kiss him!
Peter Parker : Go ahead. Lay one on me.
Gwen Stacy : Really?
Peter Parker : Yeah. They'll love it.
Boy at Keys to the City Ceremony : [covering eyes] Don't do it, Spidey.
[Gwen pulls a part of Spider-Man's mask down; they kiss]
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.
Peter Parker : Now dig on this.
Peter Parker : This suit, where'd this come from? The power, feels good... But you lose yourself to it...
Peter Parker : This suit, where'd this come from? The power, feels good... But you lose yourself to it...
Peter Parker : [takes off his mask, has sand all over his face after just fighting the Sandman] Where do these guys COME from?
[takes off a boot, tips it upside down, sand continously pours out]
Spider-Man : It's time to pay, Marko!
Peter Parker : [to Eddie Brock] You want forgiveness? Get religion.
Peter Parker : Good riddance.
Peter Parker : It's me, Peter Parker. Your friendly neighborhood - you know. I've come a long way since I was the boy bit by a spider. Back then nothing seemed to go right for me. Now people really like me. The city is safe and sound. Guess I had a little something to do with that. My uncle Ben would be proud. I still go to school. Top of my class. And I'm in love. With the girl of my dreams.
Peter Parker : This man killed my uncle, and he's still out there!
Peter Parker : [planning how he's going to propose] So, you want some champagne? How'd that get in there? Oh, don't cry.
Peter Parker : [walking over the bridge in Central Park] You look beautiful!
Peter Parker : [MJ doesn't respond, Peter shows some flowers] Peonies
Peter Parker : [looks at MJ as he can sense something is wrong with her] You okay?
Mary Jane Watson : No! There's something I need to tell you right now, Pete!
Peter Parker : [confused] What?
Mary Jane Watson : 'Tis not working! You and Me!
Peter Parker : [confused and quite shocked] What?
Mary Jane Watson : I don't wanna see you anymore!
Peter Parker : [still confused in despair] You kidding me, right?
Mary Jane Watson : No! I kid not, Pete! I don't love you anymore!
Peter Parker : What are you mean! What are you talking about?
Mary Jane Watson : I'm all alone! I'm lonely and you aren't there for me! It's all over!
Peter Parker : No! MJ, Please don't say that! I know I haven't been myself lately but listen! I can do better and I can change!
Mary Jane Watson : Pete! It is not that simple!
Peter Parker : But we love each other! I love you! If people have problems don't they sit down and talk it all through together!
Mary Jane Watson : [covers her face]
Peter Parker : [goes into his pocket to get the engagement ring his Aunt May gave him] MJ! I've got something to show you!
Mary Jane Watson : What?
Peter Parker : [shows MJ the engagement ring] Look! Do you see this ring?
Mary Jane Watson : [gasps]
Peter Parker : Do you realise what I've always wanted to do to you?
Mary Jane Watson : There's someone else! I've fallen for someone else!
[Mary Jane arrives at Peter's door, brandishing a newspaper with a review of her Broadway debut]
Mary Jane Watson : The review.
Peter Parker : Oh!
Mary Jane Watson : They hated it. They hated me.
Peter Parker : Well, they can't hate you.
Mary Jane Watson : [quoting] The young Miss Watson is a pretty girl, easy on the eyes, but not on the ears. Her small voice didn't carry past the first row.
Peter Parker : That's ridiculous! I was right there.
Mary Jane Watson : You were in the first row.
Peter Parker : Yeah, but that's - listen. You were great. That's a critic. This is something you're gonna have to get used to. Believe me, I know. Spider-Man gets attacked all the time.
Mary Jane Watson : This isn't about you. This is about me. It's about my career.
Peter Parker : I know, and I'm just saying, you can't let it, you can't let it bring you down. You just gotta believe in yourself and you pull yourself together. You get right back on the horse.
Mary Jane Watson : Don't give me the horse thing! Try to understand how I feel.
[He's still smiling at her, but she sits down glumly]
Mary Jane Watson : It's just, I look at these words, and it's like my father wrote them.
