Artificial Intelligence: “What’s wrong? You’ve reached the southwest window. Why are you hesitating?”
Spiderman: “It’s heights. I’ve never been this high before.”
Artificial Intelligence: “You have also not reinstalled your parachute; so a fall from this height would most likely be lethal.”

Spiderman: “Why is it not breaking?”
Artificial Intelligence: “It’s orange-ballistic glass. You’ll have to create more momentum.”

Police in Helicopter: “This is DC Metro Police. Identify yourself. Return to the ground immediately!”

Teacher: “Okay, who’s next?”
Student One: “Me it’s my turn!”

Police in Helicopter: “Stand down! Return to ground, immediately!

Return to the ground, or we will open fire! Go up, go up!

This is your last chance.”

Spiderman: “Huh . . . I’m gonna die.”

Spiderman: “Hey, how are you doing? Don’t worry, I’ve got you.”
Student Two: “Yes, yes, yes!”
Teacher: “Hey, hey, quit moving around!”
Student Two: “Sorry, sir. So sorry.”

Spiderman: “Alright. This is your stop. Go, go, go! Everybody out! Move it people, move it! Move it!”

Spiderman: “You’re okay. You’re okay. OK.

So, is everyone okay?”

Artificial Intelligence: “This is your chance, Peter: kiss her.”

Teacher: “Thank you.”

Student One: “Are you really friends with Peter Parker?”
