Olive Byrne: [From trailer] A comic book, Bill?
William Moulton Marston: Well, it's perfect. I'm going to inject my ideas right into the thumping heart of America. I mean, I'll get a real artist to draw it properly.
Elizabeth Marston: She's an Amazon princess that lives on an island of all women?
William Moulton Marston: Paradise Island.
Elizabeth Marston: And a man crash lands on the island.
William Moulton Marston: Yeah. Steve Trevor, the spy.
Olive Byrne: And she wears a burlesque outfit?
William Moulton Marston: Well, it's athletic!
Olive Byrne: And silver bracelets.
William Moulton Marston: They deflect bullets.
Elizabeth Marston: And all her friends and helpers are sorority girls who have spanking parties and everybody fights Nazis and rides in an invisible plane?
William Moulton Marston: Yes.
[Elizabeth and Olive try not to laugh]
William Moulton Marston: What?
Elizabeth Marston: Bill. We love you, truly but nobody, and I say this with all the compassion and truth in my heart, nobody will ever publish this.
William Moulton Marston: She is beautiful, guileless, kind, and pure of heart. You are brilliant, ferocious, hilarious, and a grade A bitch. Together, you are the perfect woman.
Elizabeth Marston: How are you going to learn anything at all about life if you refuse to live it?
Elizabeth Marston: [on her knees] I thought I knew everything. I thought love wasn't enough. But it... It has to. It has to be enough because we cannot... We cannot live without you. I cannot live without you. Please, come back to us.
Olive Byrne: I want a new stove.
Elizabeth Marston: What?
Olive Byrne: The one you have is ancient, and the back burners don't work.
William Moulton Marston: We can get a new stove.
Elizabeth Marston: He respects me. He loves me. And he's never boring.
Elizabeth Marston: If it is the same work then why can I not receive a PhD from Harvard? Because I have a vagina?
Elizabeth Marston: Will you stop apologizing? Do you know how many times a minute you apologize?
Olive Byrne: Sorry.
William Moulton Marston: [lecturing] A person is most happy when they are submissive to a loving authority. It is essential that a person submits to an authority willingly that it is their idea.
Elizabeth Marston: What we want can never happen.
William Moulton Marston: Why not?
Elizabeth Marston: Because the world won't let it.
William Moulton Marston: The world can't stop us.
Brant Gregory: What is your intention towards Olive?
William Moulton Marston: I don't understand...
Brant Gregory: I didn't ask you. I know what your intention is, you're rather obvious.
Brant Gregory: What is *your* intention towards Olive?
William Moulton Marston: [speaking to an audience] My name is Dr. William Moulton Marston. And I am the creator of Wonder Woman. Wonder Woman is a love letter. She is a fantasy. She comes from a distant place where there is beauty and justice, and respect. I write what I see about women I know women who are every bit as just and strong, and capable as Wonder Woman. Now, we can debate the length of her hemline. But what is important is the way Wonder Woman reforms criminals. She makes them tell the truth. That is what she stands for the truth. To you Wonder Woman is just a comic but she's my life. She's my love.
William Moulton Marston: We did it! The link to the lie-detector test was there the whole time. It doesn't matter what you say or what you think. Your body will always betray you. Your heart pumps a record of the truth.
Josette Frank: You don't even deny that these images are overtly sexual.
William Moulton Marston: An erotic component is necessary. How else is submission supposed to be pleasurable? I am teaching readers to submit to a loving authority, and that submission is pleasurable. Young boys must learn this if they are to grow up respecting powerful women.
Josette Frank: What is powerful about a woman running around in a bathing suit?
Brant Gregory: Path to peace is not through finance or politics it is to solve the problems of man's heart. Can't solve war by simply studying men's feelings.
William Moulton Marston: Of course, you're right. Men's minds are far too limited. That's why we need women.
