Ryan: Mr. Star, do you know anyone so obsessed with Ferrus that he'd kill over it?
Jay Star: Kill? Well, in the old days, maybe an editor or two.
Jay Star: They stole, connived, wriggled their way to the top. The worms always know where the bodies are buried. You remember that, boy.
Ryan: It must have been some pretty wild scenes to be cut from Ferrus.
Jay Star: Wild? Ferrus, Ferrus was nothing. Nothing compared to some of the things I've seen. Frogs falling from the skies, people bursting into flames. It's a world of cruel miracles.
Ryan: When you're a kid, the whole world doesn't make a whole lot of sense. I mean, you're either too little or you're too young. You're not treated as a human. Everybody can kick you around any way they want to. But then you pick up a comic book, and they got these heroes in there that nobody can kick around. They just... can do anything, you know? So, buy a comic, you read it, and you're the hero.
Micki: What do we do if he won't let us see it?
Ryan: Appeal to his better nature.
Micki: Offer him money.
Ryan: You got it.
Micki: Nice to know there's some things in life you can still count on.
Jay: (to Ryan) Tell me, boy. How does it feel to be a hero?
Ryan: Did I ever show you any of my drawings?
Micki: What, is this a line? "Wanna come upstairs and see my etchings?"
Ryan: No, I'm much more sophisticated than that.
Micki: Oh, right.
Ryan: No, really. Besides, I never understood what was so great about etchings. Now, a #1 Spider-Man, that's something...

Was aired in England as part of Friday's Curse with the episode "Scarecrow."
Rather than spend money on special effects, a series of comic book panels are used to show the transition from the comic book holder into Ferrus.
In-Joke: The entire Ferrus comic is an in-joke to the controversy behind the creation of Superman (the Man of Steel = "Ferrus"), with Siegel and Shuster losing the financial rights to their creation just as Star does here.
