Ben Parker Quotes:
Ben Parker: Peter? I know things have been difficult lately and I'm sorry about that. I think I know what you're feeling. Ever since you were a little boy, you've been living with so many unresolved things. Well, take it from an old man. Those things send us down a road... they make us who we are. And if anyone's destined for greatness, it's you, son. You owe the world your gifts. You just have to figure out how to use them and know that wherever they take you, we'll always be here. So, come on home, Peter. You're my hero... and I love you!

Ben Parker: Um...
May Parker: How many meat loaves have I made for you?

Peter Parker: That's nice. That's great... That's all well and good. So where is he?
Ben Parker: What?
Peter Parker: Where is he? Where's my dad? He didn't think it was his responsibility to be here to tell me this himself?
Ben Parker: Oh, come on, how dare you?
Peter Parker: How dare I? How dare you?
