Quotes

IRS Agent Bower: Superman, Agent Bower, I.R.S. We've been trying to contact you. We need your social security number.
Superman: I don't have one.
IRS Agent Bower: Everyone has a social security number.
Superman: Well, I don't.
IRS Agent Bower: I guess that explains why we can't locate any of your tax returns. It doesn't appear you've actually ever filed. That can't be, can it? Superman a tax dodger? Should we be looking under "S" for Super or "M" for Man?
