Kitty Kowalski Quotes in Superman Returns (2006)


Kitty Kowalski Quotes:

  • Lex Luthor: Kitty, what did my father used to say to me?

    Kitty Kowalski: You're losing your hair.

    Lex Luthor: Before that.

    Kitty Kowalski: Get out.

    Lex Luthor: He said: You can print money, manufacture diamonds, and people are a dime a dozen, but they'll always need land. It's the one thing they're not making any more of.

  • Lex Luthor: Do you know the story of Prometheus? No, of course you don't. Prometheus was a god who stole the power of fire from the other gods and gave control of it to the mortals. In essence, he gave us technology, he gave us power.

    Kitty Kowalski: So we're stealing fire? In the Arctic?

    Lex Luthor: Actually, sort of. You see whoever controls technology controls the world. The Roman empire ruled the world because they built roads. The British empire ruled the world because they built ships. America; the atom bomb. And so on and so forth. I just want what Prometheus wanted.

    Kitty Kowalski: Sounds great Lex, but you're not a god.

    Lex Luthor: [fixes Kitty with an icy stare] Gods are selfish beings who fly around in little red capes and don't share their power with mankind. No, I don't want to be a *god*. I just want to bring fire to the people. And... I want my cut.

  • Lex Luthor: [angrily throws coconut into the ocean]

    Kitty Kowalski: Lex! We only have six of those!

    Lex Luthor: Six?

    [laughs maniacally]

    Lex Luthor: [screaming] I would trade three hundred THOUSAND coconuts and every ounce of your blood for a QUART OF GASOLINE!

    Kitty Kowalski: But what will we have to eat?

    Lex Luthor: [eyes the dog in Kitty's arms maliciously]

  • Kitty Kowalski: [Stomps into a room and slaps Lex across the face] I was going to pretend the brakes were out. Pretend! Like we talked about!


    Kitty Kowalski: You didn't actually have to cut them!

    Lex Luthor: Well of course I did. A man can always tell when a woman is pretending... especially Superman.

  • Kitty Kowalski: My heart, my palpitations, they're gone, what did you do?

    Superman: I didn't do anything, Ma'am.

    Kitty Kowalski: [breathlessly] Call me Catharine.

  • Lex Luthor: This ordinary crystal is a seed, and all it needs is water.


    Kitty Kowalski: Like Sea Monkeys?

    Lex Luthor: [sighs] Exactly, Kitty. Like Sea Monkeys.

  • Kitty Kowalski: [Looking at a dog chewing on bones surrounded by dog fur] Weren't there two of those?

  • Kitty Kowalski: Your friends give me the creeps.

    Lex Luthor: Prison is a creepy place, Kitty, and one needs to make creepy friends in order to survive. On the inside, even my talents were worth less than a carton of cigarettes and a sharp piece of metal in your pocket.

  • Kitty Kowalski: Lex?

    Lex Luthor: [lighting a cigar] Uh-huh?

    Kitty Kowalski: Are billions of people really going to die?

    [beat; Luthor takes a puff from the cigar]

    Lex Luthor: [indifferently] Yes.

  • Kitty Kowalski: Wow, that's really something Lex.

    Lex Luthor: Wait for it.

    Kitty Kowalski: [long pause] Wow, that's really something Lex. It's freakin' Gone with the Wind.

  • Kitty Kowalski: [while in Superman's Fortress of Solitude] You act like you've been here before.

  • Kitty Kowalski: [about Kryptonian technology] Sounds like a lot of hocus-pocus to me.

    Lex Luthor: Well, naturally. To the primitive mind, any sufficiently advanced technology would be indistinguishable from magic.

    [Arthur C. Clarke's "Third Law" from "Profiles of the Future," 1973]
