  • QUOTES (1)

    • (Jimmy picks up a wooden chair and smashes across the back of a man wearing a lead mask. The man is not phased, he removes his mask.)
      Superman: Hello, Jimmy.
      Jimmy: Golly, Superman. Did I hurt you?
      Superman: No, of course not. But you ought to be more careful.
      Jimmy: You know, you're right. If it had been anybody but you, i'd have slaughtered him.(Jimmy looks more closely at Superman's disguise.)
      Superman: Oh, just a disguise, Jimmy.
      Jimmy: I bet ya, if I could find out whose pants those are, i'd know who you really were.
      Superman: No, Jimmy, I only paid two dollars for these in a second-hand clothing store.
