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!
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 Petereverything! About the obscene phone calls... about how I've been hiding them from him...
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!
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.
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.
What a strange tone in her voice. The same tone I had sometimes when -- she doesn't...know, does she? Should I ask if she knows? No. Peter would tell me if she knew. Except Peter and I don't talk. Nuts.
Oh, Tiger... they're going to put this whole thing on your head. They're going to blame you for screwing up the peace process unless you lay yourself open to every nut in the city. What are we going to do?
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.
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.
"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:
