Lines from Spider-Man
  • This exchange between Kingpin and Spidey after he's captured by the Insidious Six.
    Kingpin: Spider-Man. Having you here is a real treat.
    Spider-Man: If I were you, I'd cut down on the treats.
  • And this one, from "The Spot":
    Kingpin: I have been waiting for this moment for a long time.
    Spider-Man: What do you have in mind, a pie-eating contest?
  • "You want a trial separation already? I understand but... I'm hurt."
  • From the Crossover with X-Men:
    Storm: Power of Lightning, strike again!
    Spider-Man: Um... Power of Webshooters, get real sticky!
  • "A nuclear reactor? Why don't villains ever pick bakeries to invade?"
  • "It's not nice to rob jewelry stores in Mister Spider-Man's neighborhood. Can you say, 'I'm going to jail'?"
  • "Rhino and Shocker? How'd they get together? Computer dating?"
  • "SHOCKEEEER! YOU CAN'T ESCAPE ME! I'LL CHASE YOU TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH!" It's his over-the-top delivery that really sells it.
  • From "Hydro-Man":
    Security Guard: Look, Spider-Man really is the thief!
    Spider-Man: Oh, great. Jameson will probably be selling "Spider-Man really is the thief" T-shirts by noon tomorrow.
  • The Take That to The Clone Saga when Peter meets the comic-verse's Ben Reilly: "This is starting to sound like a bad comic book plot!"
  • Let me guess... The skull... the corny line... your name must be bonehead!
  • Tombstone is chasing Spider-Man...
    Tombstone: Come down here and fight like a man!
    Spidey: I don't suppose I could convince you to come up here and fight like a spider?
  • Peter's exasperated reaction to the Punisher figuring out he's really... the Green Goblin. It comes to a head when the Goblin himself shows up. "Well, whaddaya know! That must be me up there!"
  • Between him and Curt Connors;
    Curt Connors: You weren't born with those powers, were you?
    Spider-Man: No, I won 'em on a game show.
  • Later:
    Connors: Amazing. The tests would show Neogenics was involved! But how could that be?
    Spidey: That was the category I chose.
  • After The Beyonder unleashes a horde of villains on an unsuspecting world for an experiment. Spidey mixing incredulity with sarcasm is just hilarious.
    Spider-Man: You had to wreck an entire civilization to prove that evil is bad?
  • In the Scorpion's first appearance, Spidey's explaining in detail why all the nuclear stuff the Scorpion's messing with is very bad. Jameson asks how he could possibly know all this, leading to this beautiful exchange:
    Spider-Man: What do I look like, The Tick?

...and everyone else
  • In season two, Silvermane accidentally turns himself into a baby trying to recapture his youth. This disturbing scene is turned hilarious two seasons later, when he's regained the ability to speak and picks up running his criminal empire right where he left off, even imperiously ordering his daughter to change his diapers. And then his new attempt to become an adult results in him becoming just as old as he was before due to Vulture being a Spanner in the Works.
    Elisa: I'm sorry things turned out this way, father. But at least you won't have to worry about diapers or...
    Silvermane: I wouldn't be so sure!
  • Every time baby!Silvermane ever opens his mouth. Just hearing a little kid's voice saying things like "Bah! My mind is trapped!" is hilarious.
  • Tombstone observing the fight between Spider-Man and Smythe's Mega-Slayer:
    Tombstone: Only problem here is, I don't know who to root for.
  • An alternate reality's Gwen Stacy explaining that she recognized Spider-Carnage as the impostor because he's "as nutty as a fruitcake".
  • The Kingpin helping save Peter's wedding by completely owning Scorpion with the Mega-Slayer:
    Kingpin: Gargan, your corrosives have no effect on this robot!
    Scorpion: Oh yeah? How about this?!
    (Scorpion swings his tail, but the Mega-Slayer grabs it)
    Kingpin: YOU FIGURE IT OUT!
    (the Mega-Slayer swings Scorpion around until his tail snaps, sending him flying)
    Kingpin: I broke him? A pity. I was just starting to have fun!
  • Before that, he and Jameson threw themselves into a contest of one-upmanship regarding helping with the wedding:
    Jameson: I know the best pastry chef in Queens!
    Kingpin: And I know the Queen's best pastry chef.
  • A loopy Harry Osbourne singing, "Spider-Man and the Punisher, sitting in a tree! MJ, MJ, MJ and me!"
  • J. Jonah Jameson: "All the networks are laughing at me. Even FOX!"
  • When Shocker is thrown into a water tower while his suit is punctured, he's forced to discard the suit before it explodes, leaving him in just his mask and Goofy Print Underwear.
