"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
