"God damn you idiots in the media! I'm doing research on spider genetics, and you infer that I'm going to cure fatness or turn people into spidermen! Don't you understand anything about science?

Dr. Lambha

Heather: I've only just started. The only thing I can knit right now is a scarf. I suppose I could learn to make a sweater, but it doesn't sound very superhero-y.

Dr. Verde, to DARPA goons

Tiger: Wait, you're inviting me along? After the way we were arguing?

Kugelblitz: The master race shall rise again, and crush the Jews who run the world!
Greta: Hmm...if the Jews run the world, wouldn't that make them the master race?
Dr. Universe: By definition I suppose you are correct, Greta.
Maus: What?! No, the Jews are usurpers!
Kugelblitz: An outrage! The Jews have stolen the rightful place of the Aryans! It doesn't count, they cheated!
Greta: I didn't know there were such strict rules for who is the master race...

Kugelblitz: Dr. Universe, you must help us! The future of our race depends on it!
Dr. Universe: The future? You pathetic people are stuck in the past. The idea that the key to the human spirit lies in a strand of DNA is idiotic.

Dr. Universe

Tiger: A good deed by a supervillain, that's rich.

Dr. Universe, here

Spinnerette: I'm curious, Dr. Universe. Why didn't you remove my mask when I was unconscious? Aren't you curious who I really am?

"Great. I just lost a fight because my stupid left head is a drama queen."

Sahira: Buzz, you want to be a hero, don't you? Why is that? Is a bit of praise worth getting killed for?
Buzz: It's not that. I traveled a lot as a kid. My grandparents are in Mexico, and I spent some time in southeast Asia. I think we forget just how good we have it here, you know? I'd like to do my part to keep it that way. I guess I'm just not smart enough to make Higgs bosons or super rice or whatever. I know I'd make a decent cop though.

"Let's have a carousing montage!"
Green Gable

Gabe: There we go, another smooth landing!

Gabe, here

Dr. Lambha: If you want to question me, speak to my lawyer!
Tiger:We could do this with lawyers present, or we could do it off the record. Off the record, how did you have a C-K reactor in your possession? Off the record, you don't have clearance to own C-K materials. Off the record, you're going to lose a lot more than tenure.

Tiger: You had a project that could be a weapon, and you put yourself in debt to a supervillain—
Dr. Lambha: Anything can be a goddamned weapon! From household bleach to a cricket bat!
