Quote1.png You're not going to kill me Kaine... you won't even hurt me. You can't. Not if all you've told me is true. If you are a clone of Peter Parker's... then deep down, you're as good as he is. Being a clone doesn't make you... or my husband... any less of a man. You're alive! Where and how you were born into this world just doesn't matter. Peter...my Peter... has always done the right thing... has defined himself by his actions.. not by whether he was born or cloned. He has lived a valuable life for the past five years I've known him. And now I'm carrying his child... I'm not going to let him throw away the life we've shared together. Peter is a person... and so are you! Prove yourself, Kaine! By your actions! Don't let Ben be killed! Don't let the Jackal kill anymore! Do what Peter would do! Do the right thing. You have the Power... now accept the responsibility! Quote2.png
--Mary Jane Watson (Earth-616)

--Mary Jane Watson (Earth-616)
Quote1.png He's science-geek Peter Parker. He's a laughing joking adventurer. He's the boy next door. He's a hero who saved the city. Quote2.png
--Mary Jane Watson (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Peter... N-Normie-- --Normie Osborn's been kidnapped! Quote2.png
--Mary Jane Watson (Earth-616)

--Mary Jane Watson (Earth-616)
Quote1.png I can handle this, Peter. I'm not going to let them do this to us again. We're going to have a life. I promise. Quote2.png
--Mary Jane Watson (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Okay, MJ, calm yourself. He's your husband... ...you love him... ...and it's time you talked to him. Time for the mind games... the secrets... to end. Time to tell Peter everything! About the obscene phone calls... about how I've been hiding them from him... Quote2.png
--Mary Jane Watson (Earth-616)
Quote1.png He should be here with me! There is so much I've got to tell him! About the phone calls, the messages... about it all. I thought they were about-- --but they've been about me! And now Peter is going to be targeted... in danger! I can't believe how rude I've been to him, but then again he -- I'm so confused! So scared! Quote2.png
--Mary Jane Watson (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Being married to Spider-Man is worse than being married to a policeman. At least a policeman's wife would get a call in the middle of night. I'm just too young... ...and not in the mood. Quote2.png
--Mary Jane Watson (Earth-616)
Quote1.png They can't protect me. Not from him. Peter is the only one who could protect me -- And I can't deal with that right now. Not again. Quote2.png

Quote1.png Don't worry about me, baby-- I got all these virile young men to protect me. 'Sides, if anything goes wrong I can always call for the Kiwi Kid. Quote2.png
--Mary Jane Watson (Earth-616)
Quote1.png He always tries to protect me. It's what he DOES. He doesn't understand. It's not that I don't want to be protected, because sometimes I do. But sometimes I want to protect HIM, and I can't do that when he's too busy protecting ME. When he's keeping secrets. But I have to respect his secrets. Because that's what I do. I keep people's secrets. Quote2.png
--Mary Jane Watson (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Go get him, Tiger. Kick his ass. Kick it HARD. Quote2.png

--Mary Jane Watson (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Maybe the rest of the world thinks marriage is something to do between other marriages, but it means something to me. You're my partner and my husband and I love you. This is our life. Quote2.png
--Mary Jane Watson (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Peter, no! Just a few seconds more... listen to me, Peter, listen to me. I know, in my heart of hearts, that you and I were always meant to be together. Whatever he throws at us, whatever he does, whatever he undoes, it doesen't matter. Because whatever he does to pull us apart would have to be bigger and stronger than what brought us together and kept us together, no matter what happened. And there's no power in the universe big enough for a job like that. Not the Devil, not God, not anybody. We'll find each other again, and we'll be together again, I know we will. And I'm always right about these things, right? Quote2.png
--Mary Jane Watson (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Whoever she is...she better be good to you. Or she'll have to answer to me. Quote2.png
--Mary Jane Watson (Earth-616)
Quote1.png The fame and glamor don't last, but so what? I'm going enjoy the ride for as long as I can. This is everything I ever wanted. Isn't it? Quote2.png
--Mary Jane Watson (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Arrogant, impulsive, inappropriate, mercenary... ...she's exactly how I remember her. Quote2.png
--Mary Jane Watson (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Hope Peter's thing is going better than this. Quote2.png
--Mary Jane Watson (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Oh come on -- I can't believe you just jinxed us like that, Tiger. Quote2.png
--Mary Jane Watson (Earth-616)
Quote1.png So why don't you play the role?! Quote2.png
--Mary Jane Watson (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Is that a "Yes," then, on me playing Spidey? Quote2.png
--Mary Jane Watson (Earth-616)
Quote1.png I just wanted to say how proud I am of you, Quentin. Truly. Quote2.png
--Mary Jane Watson (Earth-616)
Quote1.png I'd like to report a murder. Is that what I'm supposed to say? Quote2.png
--Mary Jane Watson (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Let's be clear here, Norman. The only reason I am doing any of this is because I know Peter is in danger. I can feel that in my bones--and Harry, despite whatever he's done--is my friend. I want to help him. Because I know whatever he's become, it's because of what you did to him. What you did to all of us, you walking poison. So don't think even a single thing I do here constitutes forgiveness, or even tolerance, of you. I don't buy this act for a second. You know why? Peter has all these... villains. Most of them are just ignored, angry failure-to-launch types who put on a costume to make the world think they're something scarier than they are. But not you, Norman. Like I said, I'm an actress. I know when someone's putting on a show. You've always been the monster. The goblin is the real you. That skin is just how you hide in plain sight. Quote2.png
--Mary Jane Watson (Earth-616)

Because the two of us-- together-- it's insane. I can do the math. You love me as Peter and Spider-Man. But you can't be with me because I'm Peter and Spider-Man. It's a recursive loop. An equation that can never be solved.

Mary Jane Watson
So, let me make sure I've understood -- you're making a biopic that empathizes with you as a villain, doesn't apologize for it, you've secured funding through fraud, and you've staffed this production with former felons and current villains as well.

Amazing Mary Jane #1



"Face it, Tiger... you just hit the jackpot!"—her first words to Peter Parker, initially appearing in Amazing Spider-Man (Vol. 1) #42 (November 1966), are by far her most famous words, and indeed, one of the most famous quotations in the Marvel Universe, duplicated in nearly every continuity in which Mary Jane appears. A non-exhaustive list of comic books the quotation appears in:

  • Amazing Spider-Man: Parallel Lives (January 1990)
  • Deadpool #6 (June 1997) — Typhoid Mary parodies the quotation
  • Spider-Man: Blue #2 (August 2002)
  • Ultimate Spider-Man #13 (November 2001)
  • Spider-Girl #1: delivered by MJ's and Peter's daughter May (aka Spider-Girl) in the alternate MC2 universe
