Episode Quotes
Mary Jane: Slow down, Tiger. It's not like we're going steady or something equally primitive.

Spider-Man: Come on, Doc, you're a cephalopod, I'm arthropod, can't we just hug it out?

Dr. Octopus: Glib does not equate with clever, Spider-Man!
Spider-Man: Yeah? Well, the ratio of arms to sanity hasn't been established either.

Dr. Octopus: Do you ever shut up?!
Spider-Man: Sorry, no. My fans expect a certain amount of quippage in every battle.

Spider-Man: (fighting Dr. Octopus) And now, back to our regularly scheduled chaos.
