    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (3)

      • Goof: Notice as Dr. Moon comes into the lab, the boom mike can be seen directly above him.

      • How is it that Peter's clone (as well as those of everybody else) has the exact same memories as the real one? Even though he came out of the cloning chamber looking alike, he certainly would not have the same life experiences as the original being that he was "born" inside a machine. Despite having an adult body, the clone should have an infantile mentality. In the Flash TV series, that was the more accurate (and dangerous) result of what happened when the superhero was cloned.

      • In the Marvel Universe (and in many others, Star Wars included) clones are created thinking that they are the people from whom they are cloned (remember the Scarlet Spider?). From a technilogical point of view, this is possible (as memories are stored chemically), but VERY improbable.

    • QUOTES (4)

      • (At the Daily Bugle)
        Rita: You know what you can get Mr. Jameson for his birthday. A big, silver platter because he wants to put your head on it.
        Peter: What did I do?
        Jameson: (Yelling) Parker!
        Peter: What's going on?
        Rita: Why should I tell you and spoil all his fun?

      • (Dr. Moon confronts his clone)
        Dr. Moon Clone: I was created out of you from one of you cells. I am you.
        Dr. Moon: No! Something went wrong.
        Dr. Moon Clone: But I have your mind. My thoughts must be your thoughts.
        Dr. Moon: Only part of my personality came through. We're like Jekyll and Hyde.

      • (After Peter snaps a picture)
        Captain Barbera: Hey. No pictures. Parker. What are you doing here?
        Peter: Well, Captain. I picked up the message on the police channel. There's something about that cable.
        Captain Barbera: I said (Taking Peter's camera away) no pictures. (Taking the film out of camera) I'll call a press conference when I'm ready. (Handing camera back) Here, go play some place.

      • (After Jameson tells Peter that Dr. Moon is having a press conference)
        Peter: Does that mean that he's discovered something new?
        Jameson: Yes. I think he's discovered the power of the press.
        Peter: Do you know what he was into? (Rita comes in into the office) Cloning.
        Rita: What's cloning?
        Jameson: It's a new dance that Parker's going to teach you.
