Spider-Man 3 (2007)
Thomas Haden Church: Sandman, Flint Marko
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.
Flint Marko : [grabs Venom in mid-swing, thinking he's Spider-Man] End of the line, Spider-Man.
Venom : [roars in his face]
Flint Marko : [seeing it's not Spider-Man, tosses him aside]
Venom : I want him dead too, Flint. That's why I've been looking for you. Oh, yeah, I know all about you. Like the fact that Spider-Man won't let you help your poor daughter. It's just - That doesn't seem right to me. Look, I want to kill the spider, you wanna kill the spider. Together, he doesn't stand a chance. Interested?
Flint Marko : Yeah.
Flint Marko : I had a good reason for what I was doing. And that's the truth.
Emma Marko : You and the truth, sitting in prison, having three meals a day together. I live in the presence of great truth...
[points at her daughter's bedroom]
Emma Marko : ...and that is the truth that you left behind right there in that bedroom.
[Penny walks out of her room, Flint walks up to her]
Flint Marko : Penny. I missed you.
Penny Marko : I miss you too, Daddy.
Flint Marko : I promise I'll make you healthy again. Whatever it takes, I'll get the money.
Emma Marko : You get out of here. Now.
Flint Marko : [exits through the window] I'm not a bad person. Just had bad luck.
