Police Officer: “Oh my God!

Seven out in central. That crane top you sent us on — it’s bigger than we thought! We’re going to need a major mobilization, right away!”

Crane Operator: “Shut down the generator!”

Fashion Photographer: “Okay, Gwen, I’ve got a cut: It’s my copier . . . what is that thing doing in my background?”

Police Officer: “Captain Stacy, they’ve got some kind of short up there. They can’t shut down the crane.”
Captain Stacy: “Get Edison on the phone. Have them kill the power to the whole block.”

Gwen Stacy: “Are you all right?”
Fashion Photographer: “It’s coming back!”

Edwin Brock, Jr., News Reporter: “Oh my god; it’s Gwen!”
Captain Stacy: “What?

What’s she doing up there?”

Edwin Brock, Jr., News Reporter: “I don’t know. I just saw her last night. She said she had a modeling gig.”

Captain Stacy: “Who are you?”

Edwin Brock, Jr., News Reporter: “It’s Brock, Sir. Edwin Brock, Jr. And I work at the Daily Bugle.

And I’m dating your daughter.”
