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

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

Amazing Spider-Man Vol 2 11
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

Spectacular Spider-Man Vol 2 7
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

Amazing Mary Jane Vol 1 4
Quote1.png I just wanted to say how proud I am of you, Quentin. Truly. Quote2.png
Amazing Mary Jane Vol 1 5
Quote1.png I'd like to report a murder. Is that what I'm supposed to say? Quote2.png
Amazing Mary Jane Vol 1 6
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
Amazing Spider-Man Vol 5 54.LR
Quote1.png Peter... at some point, you're gonna have to stop for five minutes and process everything that's happened. You know that, right? Quote2.png
Amazing Spider-Man Vol 5 75
Quote1.png Someday, Peter Parker, you're going to learn how to rest. If you don't, it's going to kill you. Quote2.png
Amazing Spider-Man Vol 5 82

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.

Amazing Spider-Man Vol 5 89


"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
