Quotes / Supergirl (1982)

Go To

Besides, I could do with the time to myself... to sit back and think. It's selfish, I know, but I deserve... Whoa! There you go again, Linda!

I've been Supergirl for such a long time, it seems. Not that I'd give that up for anything... but I feel like I've totally lost hold of the part of me that doesn't scoot around the universe in shorts and a cape! I've forgotten what it feels like to be just a person... Instead of a symbol!

Earth was kind of disappointing at first. All I could see was that it wasn't Argo City... didn't have the scientific majesty of my home world. And most importantly, it didn't have my parents!

I hate thinking of the fortune in ammunition thugs like you have wasted on me over the years!

Supergirl: Oh, now that's a snappy repartee! Remind me jot that one down for future reference!
