  • Peter calling Jameson out:
    Jameson: Do you know why I never gave you a vacation?
    Peter: No, Sir.

    Peter: Oh, yeah? Oh, yeah? I've had it with you, Jameson! One minute you're Mr. Glad-Hand, the working boy's friend — the next, you put the knife in! Well, maybe that's okay for the rest of your staff — but it isn't for me! NOT ANYMORE! I'm through being stepped on! You want me, Jameson — find me!

  • Superman uses his photographic memory and Super Speed to reassemble a blown-up super-computer in the blink of an eye.
  • Clark and Peter team up to contain a brainwashed enemy: Peter webs him and Clark's heat vision hardens his web.

  • During the climax, Superman has to stop a tsunami heading towards the US East Coast. Spider-Man tells him move on, assuring that he'll deal with both villains. Supes stops the one-mile-high, two-hundred-miles-long tidal wave by flying in front of the wave, shattering the sound barrier over and again until he creates a massive wall of sound which blocks the tsunami. Meanwhile, Spidey manages hold the line and knocks Lex Luthor out after Lex pummeled Otto.
