Aunt May Parker
J. Jonah Jameson
This is the first episode where Peter/Spider-Man doesn't appear before the theme song.
As a running gag, everybody kept commenting on Peter's stench ever since Shocker trapped him in the garbage compressor.
Peter trying to ask out Betty Brant from the Daily Bugle parallels Peter's former relationship with her in the comics.
Shocker can now produce shockwaves not just through his gauntlets but his own suit as well.
Unlike the comics, Montana dons the Shocker mantle instead of Herman Schultz.
Shocker: (To Spider-Man) I do admire your spunk, son. Not enough to let you go, of course. That'd be bad for business.
O'Hirn: (About Spider-Man) Did I get him? Tell me I got him!
Shocker: The only thing you got was on my nerves!
Shocker: Hold still son, so I can put you out of your misery!
Spider-Man: How about you put me out of my mystery? Who are you?
Shocker: Call me.. well, how's about... "Shocker"!
Spider-Man: How's about toast?!
Spider-Man: (After webbing O'Hirn and Flint Marko's hands to the box of stolen photography items) And now that you troguadites have deduced that the rumors of my demise have been completely exaggerated... (O'Hirn and Flint Marko look at him confused by what he just said) I'm not dead... uh, never mind. Just tell Shocker I want a rematch. (To shopkeeper as he swings away) You can call the cops now.
J. Jonah Jameson: (Sniffs the air, a little grossed out) Whoo. Piece of advice, kid. (Gently pushes Peter away with one finger) Perfume doesn't cut it. Tomato juice: only thing after taking pictures at a dump.
J. Jonah Jameson: (Flipping through Peter's photos while throwing them over his shoulder) Garbage, garbage, literally garbage, gar... wait. (Grins at a photo of Shocker looking down at Spider-Man being crushed in the garbage compressor) Hoho!
Peter Parker: Um, wouldn't you rather use one where Spider-Man's... winning?
J. Jonah Jameson: Ha! Shows what you know. (Throws the rest of Peter's pictures on the floor while Peter picks them up) Nobody loves a winner. The people are our market and the people want their heroes to fail. Makes them feel good about themselves!
(After Harry Osborn storms in and throws his backpack at a vase, breaking it in the process)
Norman Osborn: You seem troubled, son.
Harry Osborn: Troubled? Gee, you think? I failed my calc test because Pete abandoned me! Flash and his crowd won't cut me a break...
Norman Osborn: (Seriously) Enough. You're parked in a no whining zone. Take some responsibility. Peter's not the reason you failed. If you want to pass a test, study. If you want to be popular, be popular. Take control of your destiny, boy. Harry, life's pretty simple: you cowboy up and do what you have to do.
Alex O'Hirn: (While stealing from a photography store with Flint Marko) Something smells bad...
Spider-Man: (Appears inside the truck) Ugh, still? I washed this costume five times!
Spider-Man: (After breaking himself out of the compacted garbage) Talk about your tight spots but, I'm alive... (Sniffs himself and shutters) Ugh, and I reek! (Jumps up to the roof and takes out his now destroyed paycheck from under his costume) And my paycheck's ruined. Perfect.
Spider-Man: Marko? How many times do I have to take you down? And where's your charming partner, O'Hirn? (Dodges and webs O'Hirn) Look, we gotta stop meeting like this! People are starting to talk, (Webs Marko to a car), mostly about what doofs you are.
J. Jonah Jameson: Did a caveman proof-read this piece? Where's my sport's editor? I want him in my office in fourteen seconds! And where's my coffee?!
Peter Parker: Um, sir? I'm Peter...
J. Jonah Jameson: I know who you are. You're the no-nothing that wasted forty one seconds of my time the other day. Well, I haven't got another forty one to spare. (Pushes Peter into the elevator)
Peter Parker: But, but... (Elevator door closes in his face)
J. Jonah Jameson: Brilliant comeback, kid. Now, where's that Parker guy? I e-mailed him seventy six minutes ago. Won't anyone get me my coffee?! (Betty Brant suddenly appears beside Mr. Jameson with a cup of coffee)
Betty Brant: Coffee, decaf... (Hands him the mug) it's only been twenty minutes and I'm pretty sure you just kicked Peter Parker out.
J. Jonah Jameson: Well, don't just stand there! Get him back!
Norman Osborn: Peter, good to see you! Here to help Harry, huh?
Peter Parker: We help each other out, Mister O.
Norman Osborn: Now, now, Peter. Modesty doesn't make men like us. Smart, driven, responsible, self-made...
Peter Parker: Um, I'm more of a 'work in progress'...
Norman Osborn: At least you're making progress. (Norman and Peter look at a saddened Harry Osborn)
Spider-Man: (While talking to Eddie Brock on his cell phone and swinging across the city) I so have to get me some hands-free...
Eddie Brock: What?
Spider-Man: Uh, nothing, bro. Just trying to do too much at once.
Eddie Brock: You mean like selling pictures to the Bugle instead of helping your friends?
Spider-Man: Look, straight up, I blew it. And I know you're ticked...
Eddie Brock: Don't go emo on me, bro.
Montana: (Gives Hammerhead the suitcase) There you go, Hammerhead. Job's done. (Tries to put on his cowboy hat when Hammerhead stops him)
Hammerhead: Forget the hat, (Opens the suitcase, revealing the Shocker suit) put on the suit. You still owe the Big Man one friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.
Peter Parker: An e-vite to Midtown High's Fall Formal.
Harry Osborn: Which would rock if either one of us had... what's the word? "Dates."
Jameson: Sorry about that, Parker. I was expecting someone who has, well, armpit hair.
Peter Parker: So, Betty, how do you work for a walking embolism like Jameson?
Betty Brant: Mister Jameson's a decent man, down deep.
Peter Parker: Are we talking about 'Marionas Trench' deep or 'Dante's Ninth Circle' deep?
Peter Parker: Do you know a Rand Robertson?
Joe Robertson: Well, there is a kid by that name who lives in my house and eats all my food.
Shocker: It's not wise to make an angry man look foolish.
Spider-Man: You don't need my help for that. Have you looked in a mirror recently?
Spider-Man: (Bowing on stage to a destroyed theatre) That's what you call bringing down the house.
Peter Parker: (Asking about Mary Jane) So, what's she like?
Aunt May: Oh, she has a wonderful personality!
(Peter winces and shrugs)
Spider-Man: (While fighting Shocker) Here Shocky, Shocky, Shocky!
Shocker: Don't you mock me, boy!
Spider-Man: I mock... I'm a mocker! (Pulling down the roof) Also a puller, a tugger and a yanker...
Disney XD Premiere Date:
March 30, 2009 @ 7:30pm (ET)
This episode can be seen on "The Spectacular Spider-Man: Rise of the Supervillains!" DVD.
Keith David does not reprise his role of Big Man. Instead, Kevin Michael Richardson voices him for future episodes. This was because Keith David was in New York at the time portraying Oberon in Central Park.
The Shocker first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man #46, and was created by Stan Lee and John Romita. Sr. Herman Schultz was an inventor who devised a pair of air-pressure shock gauntlets and a protective suit to insulate himself from their vibrations. A mercenary at heart, Schultz hires out his services or commits robberies, rather then engages in elaborate revenge schemes. He has worked as a member of the Sinister Six, the Masters of Evil, and the Sinister Syndicate.
Eddie Brock: Don't go emo on me, bro.
This was a reference to Peter Parker's actions and appearance from wearing the alien symbiote in 2007's live action film Spider-Man 3.
Norman Osborne's line "... do what you got to do." is a similar one from Spider-Man with Norman being portrayed by Willem Dafoe.
