    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (8)

      • (At the museum near the Rava statue)
        Jameson: You did an excellent job, Captain.
        Captain Barbera: Thank you, sir. I'd like to take all the credit. But I have to admit, I couldn't have pulled it off without Spider-Man.
        Peter: Oh, he'll be delighted to hear you say that, Captain. Do you mind if the Bugle quotes you on that?
        Jameson: Not on your life. I'm not giving any recognition to some freak who runs around in a red and blue union suit.

      • (After leaving Dr. Keller's lab room)
        Peter: Oh. Hello, Captain. You gonna take a class?
        Captain Barbera: Sure. I may even go back to school full time.
        Peter: Good. Maybe I can get you into my fraternity.

      • (At the Daily Bugle)
        Peter: (Referring to Mr. Jameson) Why does that man have to be so stubborn?
        Rita: That's probably what got him where he is.
        Peter: I mean he is in jail and he still thinks that he knows the answers. If that is what it takes to be rich, I'd rather stay poor.
        Rita: Honey, you work for Mr. Jameson long enough, you'll get your wish for sure.

      • (After Peter's spider sense warns him about Mandak)
        Peter: Captain. Captain. Can I talk to you. Look, you have got to make sure that Idol of Rava doesn't get back to Calistan. I mean it could cause a Civil War. With Calistan sitting right between Russia and China.
        Captain Barbera: Relax, Parker. I already talked to some fruit cake. Said he was from the Calistany Councilor
        Peter: Captain. Did he threaten you?
        Captain Barbera: No. But he said that statue of Smiling Jack in there was going to get me. You notice how scared I am.
        Peter: I'd take that lightly, sir. Look what happened to Prof. Rustin.
        Captain Barbera: You too. Parker, don't you have to oil your slide ruler or something.
        Peter: Well, I really think.
        Captain Barbera: (Cutting him off) No.

      • Rita: Mr. Jameson. I've got your car parked right out front.
        Jameson: What are you all dressed up for?
        Rita: Now, you didn't want me driving around in your Royals in an old house coat, did you?
        Jameson: Well, actually I didn't want you driving around in it at all.
        Rita: You know. To tell you the truth, you're getting out early kind of messed up my plans. See I had this date with this guy I know over in Jersey. We were going to strip you car.
        Jameson: (Turning to Peter) You know, I half believe she would.

      • (After Peter suggests that someone else will buy his pictures)
        Jameson: Rita.
        Rita: Yeah, boss.
        Jameson: We're buying some pictures from Parker and the negatives. Authorize payment will you (Looking at Peter) and throw in a $50 bonus.
        Rita: Yes sir.
        Peter: Thank you, Mr. Jameson. (Giving Jameson the envelope of pictures) That's very generous of you.
        Jameson: Get out of here, Parker.

      • (Looking over the debris that fell infront of the museum)
        Captain Barbera: What do you think caused it, Professor?
        Professor John Rustin: I don't know. I'm an art historian, Captain. Ask young Parker there. Physical scienes are his field.
        (Peter walks up)
        Captain Barbera: How about it, Parker. Could an earthquake have caused all this?
        Peter: Well, certainly if we were in California. But there's never been an earthquake recorded in Manhatten
        Captain Barbera: (Sarcastically) Thanks, Parker. You're a big help.

      • (Tapping Peter's shoulder as he's taking pictures of the Rava statue)
        Trina: Did I scare you?
        Peter: Well, as a matter of fact, yes, you did.
        Trina: I'm sorry. I didn't realize you were so engrossed in your work.
        peter: Well, he's a pretty engrossing old boy. (Reaching up to touch the statue)
        Trina: You mustn't touch him.
        Peter: Oh, that's right. I'm sorry. I forgot.
