Heh. Ignore this. I’m just writing down some scenes from Spiderman that I can’t find anywhere, and had to put them here because I’m on my brother’s computer which doesn’t have a floppy disk drive so I can’t transfer anything. //gibberish

The visit to the lab

HARRY: Can we drive around the corner?
NORMAN: Why? The enterance is right there.
HARRY: This is a public school. I can’t show up in a Rolls.
NORMAN: I should trade my car for a Jetta, because you flunked out of private school?
HARRY: It wasn’t for me.
NORMAN: Of course it was. Don’t ever be ashamed of who you are.
HARRY: I’m not ashamed of who I am. It’s just…
NORMAN: Just what, Harry?
HARRY: Forget it. [leaves]

HARRY: Pete!
PETER: Hi, Harry.
HARRY: Hey, man. What’s up?
NORMAN: [with Harry’s bag] Won’t you be needing this?
HARRY: Thanks. This is my father, Norman Osborn.
NORMAN (? I was using the subtitles): I’ve heard so much about you.
PETER: It’s a honour, sir.
NORMAN: Harry says you’re a science wiz.
[Peter nods]
NORMAN: I’m something of a scientist myself.
PETER: I read your research on nanotechnology. Brilliant.
NORMAN: You understood it?
PETER: Yes, I wrote a paper on it.
NORMAN: Impressive. Your parents must be very proud.
PETER: I live with my aunt and uncle.
PETER: Nice to meet you.
NORMAN: Hope to see you again.

PETER: He doesn’t seem so bad.
HARRY: Not if you’re a genius. I think he wants to adopt you.

Peter and Harry in the lab

[Some guy pushes Peter]
HARRY: Leave him alone.
SOME GUY: Or what?
FLASH: Or his father will fire your father. [to Harry] What’s Daddy gonna do? Sue me?
TEACHER: What is going on? The next person who talks will fail this course.
HARRY: Let’s go.

Peter and MJ talk in the street

PETER: MJ, it’s me, Peter.
MJ: Hi! What are you doing around here?
PETER: Begging for a job. How about you?
MJ: I’m headed for an audition.
PETER: An audition? So you’re acting?
MJ: Yeah. I work steady. In fact, I just got off a job.
PETER: That’s great. You’re doing it, living your dream!
RESTAURANT GUY: Glamour girl! Your drawer was short six dollars! Next time I’ll take it from your check!
[MJ ignores him]
RESTAURANT GUY: Excuse me, Miss Watson. I’m talking to you. Hey!
MJ: Yes, Enrique! Okay? I get you!
ENRIQUE: It better not happen no more. Don’t roll your eyes at me.
[He goes away. MJ sighs and shows Peter her waitress uniform.]
MJ: Some dream, huh?
PETER: It’s nothing to be embarrassed about.
MJ: Don’t tell Harry.
PETER: Don’t tell Harry?
MJ: Don’t you guys live together? We’re going out. Didn’t he tell you?
PETER: Oh, yeah. Right.
MJ: I think he’d hate the idea of me waiting tables. He’d think it was low or something.
PETER: It’s not low. You have a job. You know, Harry doesn’t live on a little place I like to call Earth.
MJ: No, I guess not. Thanks, Pete. We should catch up sometime.
[She starts to walk off]
PETER: Let’s get some lunch some evening…I’ll come by and have some of your Moondance coffee some day. And I won’t tell Harry.
MJ: No, don’t tell Harry.
PETER: I won’t. [softly] I won’t tell Harry.

Added 18/3/05-Graduation

MAY: Peter! Oh darling, I’m so proud of you! You looked so handsome up there.
HARRY: Pete? Good news. My father got the place in New York. We’re all set this tall.
PETER: That’s great.
NORMAN (to Harry): You made it. This is not the first time I’ve been proven wrong. Congratulations.
HARRY: Thanks, Dad.
NORMAN: Peter, the science award. That’s terrific.
PETER: Yeah.
NORMAN: I know this has been a difficult time for you, but I want you to try and enjoy this day. Commencement. The end of one thing, the start of something new.
[Harry walks away and sees MJ arguing with Flash]
MJ: I don’t need you any more!
FLASH: Fine!
MJ: Here’s your ring.
FLASH: You know what? Whatever! It’s your loss.
NORMAN: You’re like a brother to him. That makes you family. If you ever need anything, just give me a call.

At the apartment

HARRY: Norman’s making his weekly inspection. Spent half of it on the phone. Look, man, I’m glad you’re here. I need your help. I’m really lost here…Are you all right? You look like you just got second place in the science fair.
PETER: I was late for work and Dr Connors fired me.
HARRY: You were late again? I don’t get it. Where do you go all the time?
PETER: Around.
NORMAN: Peter Parker! Maybe you’ll tell me who she is.
NORMAN: This mystery girl Harry’s been dating.
NORMAN: When do I get to meet her?
PETER: Well, sorry. Harry hasn’t mentioned her.
HARRY: Pete, you’re probably looking for a job now, right? Dad, maybe you can help him out.
PETER: I appreciate it, but I’ll be fine.
NORMAN: I’ll make a few calls-
PETER: I couldn’t accept it. I like to earn what I get. I’ll find work.
NORMAN: I respect that. You want to make it on your own. That’s great. What other skills do you have?
PETER: I was thinking about photography…

World Unity Day

[Peter taking photos, sees MJ and Harry on the balcony]
HARRY: MJ, why didn’t you wear the black dress? Just, I wanted to impress my father. He loves black.
MJ: Well, maybe he’ll be impressed no matter what. You think I’m pretty.
HARRY: I think you’re beautiful.
[He goes to kiss her but she turns her head away. He looks down and sees Peter]
HARRY: I forgot my drink inside-
[Peter, back on the ground, looks from side to side]
HARRY: Oh, hi, Mr Fargas.
MR FARGAS: Oh, Harry.
HARRY: Have you seen my father?
MR FARGAS: Well, I’m not sure if he’s coming-
[The Green Goblin comes into view]

After the World Unity Festival

HARRY [on the phone to MJ] Incredible? What do you mean he’s incredible? No. All right. Wait. Stay there. I’ll come over. No, I’m gonna come-All right. Fine. Will you call me in the morning? And we’ll go and have breakfast and…I want to buy you something. Because I want to. It’ll make you feel better-Okay. And what do you mean, incredible?
[Peter grins]
All right. I’m sorry. Sleep tight. Don’t let the bedbugs-
[MJ presumably hangs up]
HARRY [to Peter]: She’s all right. She’s just a little rattled…look, Pete, I should have told you about us. But you should know, I’m crazy about her. It’s just, you know, you never made a move.
PETER: You’re right. I didn’t.
HARRY: I’m gonna get some rest-
[heads for the stairs]
PETER: I’m gonna stay up for a while.
HARRY: What was that thing?
PETER: I don’t know. Whatever it is, somebody has to stop it-


HARRY: MJ, would you stop goofing around?
MJ: Harry, relax.
HARRY: He’s here!
MAY: Are you ready?
[door opens]
NORMAN: Aunt May. I’m sorry I’m late. Work was murder. I picked up a fruitcake.
MAY: Thank you, Mr Osborn. We’re so glad you could come.
NORMAN: Who is this lovely young lady?
HARRY: I’d like you to meet my father…Dad, this is Mary Jane Watson.
NORMAN: I’ve been looking forward to meeting you.
MJ: Happy Thanksgiving, sir.
MAY: Now, where’s Peter? He’d better remember that cranberry sauce.
[spiderman lands in the bedroom]
HARRY: Oh, that’s weird. I didn’t know he was here.
MAY: Peter?IS that you?
[they come in. Peter, still in his costume, hides on the ceiling]
MAY: How strange. There’s nobody here.
NORMAN: Bit of a slob, isn’t he?
MAY: All brilliant men are.
[a drop of blood falls from Peter’s arm and hits the ground behind Norman. He turns around and looks up at the ceiling, but by this time Peter’s escaped]

PETER: Hey, everyone!
MAY: Oh, Peter!
PETER: It’s a jungle out there. I had to beat an old lady with a stick to get these cranberries.
MAY: Thank you. Now, everyone sit down…and we can say grace.
[everyone sits]
MAY: Here we go…there we are.
PETER: It looks delicious.
[Norman reaches for some, but May slaps his hand away.]
MAY: Will you do the honours?
[Norman licks his fingers and begins sharpening the knives]
MAY: Why Peter, you’re bleeding-
PETER: I stepped off a kerb and got clipped by one of those bike messengers-
MAY: Well, let me see…oh my goodness. That looks awful.
PETER: No, it’s nothing.
MAY: I’ll get the first-aid kit. Then we’ll say grace. This is the boy’s first thanksgiving here, and we’ll do things properly.
NORMAN: How did you say that happened?
PETER: Bike messenger. Knocked me down.
NORMAN: …if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got to go.
NORMAN: Something has come to my attention.
MAY: ARe you all right?
NORMAN: I’m fine, just fine. Thank you, Mrs Parker. Everyone. Enjoy the fruitcake.
HARRY: Dad! I planned this so you’d meet MJ, and now you have to leave?!
NORMAN: I’ve got to go.
HARRY: This girl is important to me!
NORMAN: Harry, please. Look at her. Think she’s sniffing around because she likes your personality?
HARRY: What are you saying?
NORMAN: Your mother was beautiful. They’re all beautiful until they’re snarling after your money like wolves.
HARRY: You’re wrong, Dad.
NORMAN: A word to the not-so-wise about your girlfriend. Do what you need to with her, then broom her fast.
[MJ, back inside, is mortified]
MJ: Thanks for sticking up for me, Harry.
HARRY: You heard?
MJ: Everyone heard that creep.
HARRY: That creep is my father! With luck I’ll be half of what he is! Shut up about stuff you don’t understand!
MAY: Harry Osborn!
MJ: I’m sorry, Aunt May. [leaves]

Harry and Norman, near the end

HARRY: Dad? Dad, is that you?
NORMAN: What is it?
HARRY: You were right about MJ. You were right about everything. She’s in love with Peter.
NORMAN: Parker?
HARRY: Yeah.
NORMAN: And how does he feel about her?
HARRY: He’s loved her since the fourth grade. He pretends like he doesn’t, but there’s no-one Peter cares for more.
NORMAN: I’m so sorry. I haven’t always been there for you, have I?
HARRY You’re busy. You’re an important man. I understand.
NORMAN: That’s no excuse. I’m proud of you. I’ve lost sight of that somewhere. But I’ll make it up to you. I’m going to rectify certain inequalities.

The funeral

PETER: I’m so sorry, Harry. I know what it’s like to loose a father.
HARRY: I didn’t loose him. He was stolen from me. And one day Spider-Man will pay. I swear on my father’s grave Spider-Man will pay. Thank God for you, Peter-you’re the only family I have.
[Teh hug]
[Harry walks away, Peter turns around and sees MJ]
PETER (VOICEOVER): No matter what I do, no matter how hard I try, the ones I love will always be the ones who pay.

SM2-Peter’s birthday

EVERYONE: Surprise!
MAY: Well, say something.
PETER: Ur…what’s the occasion?
MAY: Really, Peter, it’s your birthday! Whether you want to remember it or not.
HARRY: He lives in another reality. Don’t you, Pete?
MJ: Hi.
HARRY: Hey, buddy.
MJ: Long time no see.
PETER: So how’s the play? I read a great review.
MJ: It’s going fine. It’s going good.
HARRY: She’s brilliant in it.
MJ: Harry sent me roses.
HARRY: So where you been, pal? You don’t return my calls.
PETER: I’ve been busy.
HARRY: Taking pictures of Spider-Man? Hows the bug these days?
MAY: The less you see of that man, the better. Now, let’s all go into the other room and have something to eat.
PETER [to Harry]: So how are things going at Oscorp?
HARRY: They’re great. I’m Head of Special Projects. We’re about to make a breakthrough on fusion.
MAY: How lovely, Harry. Your father would be so proud, rest his soul.
HARRY: Thank you. We’re actually funding one of your idols, Pete. Otto Octavius.
PETER: I’m writing a paper on him.
HARRY: You want to meet him?
PETER: You’d introduce me?
HARRY: You bet. Octavius is going to put Oscorp on the map in a way my father never even dreamed about.
MAY: MJ, could you give me a hand?
[MJ leaves]
HARRY: She’s waiting for you, pal.
PETER: What do you mean?
HARRY: The way she looks at you, or doesn’t look at you…however you want to look at it.
PETER: I don’t have time for girls right now.
HARRY: Why, are you dead?
PETER: I’ve been kinda busy.
HARRY: Taking pictures of your friend?
PETER: Could we get off that subject? I want us to be friends, Harry. I want us to trust each other.
HARRY Then be honest with me. If you knew who he was, would you tell me?
[Peter says nothing]


[Harry pulls the mask off]
HARRY: Pete! No..it can’t be.
PETER: Harry…where is she? Where is he keeping her? He’s got MJ!
HARRY: No..all he wanted was the tritium…
PETER: Tritium? He’s making the machine again! When that happens, she’ll die, along with half of New York! Now, where is she?
HARRY: Peter…you killed my father…
PETER: There are bigger things happening here than me and you. Please, Harry. I’ve got to stop him.

Added 11/3/05- Commentry on the above scene
EITHER TOBEY, SAM OR THE OTHER GUY(hey, I’m still working with subtitles): We did debate it, we debated other moments where we did have Spidey take off his mask. But that one was more of a given. Because after sacrificing himself and doing that for the New Yorkers, you need to be with Peter emotionally and see his reaction to their thankfulness. You don’t get to be with him that often. It’s one of those moments where he does see the impact of what he does for people. And you are able to be with him as he sees their apreciation. You’ll see three times, and all three times, it has to be driven by the story. It has to be something. And so there you see the appreciation on the train, about people of New York saying ‘Oh my god, it’s just a kid.’

[Back to the actual scene in question :p]
PROBABLY TOBEY: I like how James is playing it because…I don’t know if he was playing it like that, but I just saw some question or doubt in his eyes about his own vengence, even. Like he’s still determined and obsessed with it, but now he’s confronted with it. “Okay, I guess I’m going to go through with this.”

[Some stuff about the prop barbed wires]

PROBABLY TOBEY: That was a difficult scene between Harry and Peter. It was difficult because there was a lot going on. And, you know…Peter, Spider-Man, is concerned with saving New York City. I know you and me were unhappy with it, both when we were shooting it, trying to find it…and wondering, even in post, whether we shouldn’t reshoot it. I won’t get into the details, but that’s one I wouldn’t mind reshooting.

PROBABLY SAM: Yeah, I’m with you. It’s a tough one. For me, it wasn’t about performance. You gave a great performance. I know you had your own performance notes. And I agreed with them. But the real problem for me was when Peter Parker is confronted by Harry saying ‘You killed my father’. I just wanted more understanding of that pain…and that situation, on Peter’s behalf, for Harry. I see the moment where you register his pain…and yet you’ve gotta save New York. It’s just inconsequential what happened some time ago…when Mary Jane’s life is at stake and the city. But I still felt that Peter owed him more, in the script, in words.

[A/N: That’s rather interesting…]
