Norman Osborn Quotes:

  • [from trailer]

    Harry Osborn: What about Peter?

    Norman Osborn: Not everyone has a happy ending...

  • Norman Osborn: This is not how I imagined I would die. Looking at my son and seeing a stranger. You have such potential, Harry. Such fierce intelligence, and you're throwing it all away.

    Harry Osborn: No, you threw me away. You kicked me off to boarding school when I was 11. On my 16th birthday, you sent me Scotch. Or one of your assistants did. I'm pretty sure because the card read: "With compliments, Norman Osborn."

    Norman Osborn: I don't expect forgiveness from you anymore. I don't believe in miracles. How could you possibly understand that your childhood had to be sacrificed for something greater? And not just for me. For you! Has your hand started to twitch yet? When you lay awake and you feel it coming, hiding under your skin, waiting to show itself. To show you who you really are. Retro viral hyperplasia. I never told you that it's genetic. Our disease, the Osborn curse. And it began at your age. Let me see it. Your hand. Give it to me. The greatest inheritance I can give you isn't merely money. It's this. The sum total of all my work. Everything I did to stay alive. Maybe you can succeed where I failed.

  • Green Goblin: [the Green Goblin has just pummeled Spider-Man] Misery, Misery, Misery, that's what you've chosen. I offered you friendship and you spat in my face.

    [Green Goblin continues to beat Spider-Man]

    Green Goblin: You've spun your last web, Spider-Man. If you had not been so selfish, your little girlfriend's death would have been quick and painless, but now that you've really pissed me off, I'm gonna finish her nice and slow. MJ and I, we're gonna have a hell of a time!

    Green Goblin: [Green Goblin lunges forward, but Spider-Man blocks and pushes him into a brick wall] Peter, Peter, stop, it's me!

    Spider-Man: [Green Goblin takes off his mask, revealing Norman Osborn] Mr. Osborn...

    Green Goblin: Oh, Peter, thank God for you...

    Spider-Man: You killed those people on that balcony!

    Norman Osborn: The Goblin did it, I had nothing to do with it! Please, don't let him take me again! I beg of you, protect me!

    Spider-Man: You tried to kill Aunt May! You tried to kill Mary Jane!

    Norman Osborn: But not you? I tried to stop it, I couldn't stop it.

    [Norman pushes a button on his suit and the glider rises]

    Norman Osborn: If anything happened to me, I knew it was you who would save me and so you have, Peter thank god for you

    Norman Osborn: [Norman rises up] Give me your hand, I've been like a father to you. Be a son to me now.

    Spider-Man: I had a father, his name was Ben Parker.

    Green Goblin: Godspeed, Spider-Man

    Norman Osborn: [Warned by spider-sense, Spider-Man black flips over the oncoming glider] Oh!

    [the glider impales Norman]

    Norman Osborn: Peter, don't tell Harry.

  • Green Goblin: Spider-Man is all but invincible; but Parker, we can destroy him.

    Norman Osborn: I can't.

    Green Goblin: Betrayal must not be countenanced. Parker must be educated.

    Norman Osborn: What do I do?

    Green Goblin: Instruct him in the matters of loss and pain. Make him suffer, make him wish he were dead.

    Norman Osborn: Yes?

    Green Goblin: And then grant his wish.

    Norman Osborn: But how?

    Green Goblin: The cunning warrior attacks neither body nor mind.

    Norman Osborn: TELL ME HOW!

    Green Goblin: The HEART Osborn! First, we attack his heart!

  • [Norman hears the Green Goblin cackling]

    Norman Osborn: Is somebody there?

    Green Goblin: [mocking] Somebody?

    Norman Osborn: Who are you?

    Green Goblin: Don't play the innocent with ME - you've known all along!

    Norman Osborn: Where are you?

    Green Goblin: Follow the cold shiver running down your spine...

    [Norman wildly searches among his collection of masks for the source of the voice]

    Green Goblin: [impatiently] I'm right HERE!

    [Norman turns and confronts his reflection in a mirror]

    Norman Osborn: I, I don't understand...

    Green Goblin: Did you think it was coincidence - so many good things happening for you, all for you, Norman?

    [He drains Norman's glass and hurls it away]

    Norman Osborn: What do you want?

    Green Goblin: To say what you won't, to do what you can't - to *remove* those in your way...

    [He holds up a newspaper which Norman examines. The main headlines state the murder of the Oscorp Board of Governors at the hands of the Green Goblin]

    Norman Osborn: The Board Members - you killed them!

    Green Goblin: WE killed them!

    Norman Osborn: We?

    Green Goblin: Remember? Your little "accident" in the laboratory...?

    Norman Osborn: The performance enhancers...

    Green Goblin: Bingo. Me! Your greatest creation. Bringing you what you've always wanted: power beyond your wildest dreams and its only the beginning. There is only one who could stop us - or imagine if he joined us...

    [as Norman watches in fear, the Goblin bares his teeth in an utterly manic grin... ]

    Norman Osborn: A bit of a slob, isn't he?

    Aunt May: All brilliant men are.

  • Norman Osborn: Sorry I'm late. Work was murder.

  • Norman Osborn: [at Peter's graduation] I know this has been a difficult time for you, but I want you to try to enjoy this day. Commencement: the end of one thing, the start of something new.

  • Maximilian Fargas: Norman, the board is unanimous. We're announcing the sale after the World Unity Festival. I'm sorry.

    Henry Balkan: You're out, Norman.

    Norman Osborn: Am I?

  • [Harry arrives at his home, but hears a strange cackling laugh]

    Harry Osborn: Hello?

    [Harry slowly walks up the stairs and rounds a corner]

    Harry Osborn: Dad!

    Norman Osborn: [rather befuddled] Oh, hello, Harry...

    [Harry turns to leave]

    Norman Osborn: Harry... I just wanted to say how sorry I am that I haven't been much of a father to you.

    Harry Osborn: It's okay. You're a busy man.

    Norman Osborn: That's no excuse.

    [he takes a slightly surprised and confused Harry in his arms and holds him for one long, precious moment]

    Norman Osborn: Take care of yourself, son. Don't make the same mistake I did.

  • Norman Osborn: They're all beautiful, until they're snarling after your trust fund like a pack of ravening wolves.

  • Norman Osborn: What do you want?

    Green Goblin: To say what you won't, to do what you can't, to remove those in your way.

    Norman Osborn: But not you.

  • Norman Osborn: [to Peter] Harry tells me you're quite the science whiz. You know, I'm something of a scientist myself.

  • Norman Osborn: You've taken your eye off the ball...

    [Harry looks around, wondering who said that; he walks slowly towards his father's portrait and gazes hard at it, and then all his memories return with a crash]

    Norman Osborn: Remember me!

    Harry Osborn: Yes, Father. I remember.

    Norman Osborn: I was right about you, about Peter... about everything. You know what you must do. Make him suffer, make him wish he were dead. First, we attack his heart!

  • Norman Osborn: You've taken your eye off the ball...
