Who am I? You sure you want to know? The story of my life is not for the faint of heart. If somebody said it was a happy little tale ... if somebody told you I was just an average guy, not a care in the world ... somebody lied. But let me assure you, this, like any stroy worth telling ... is all about a girl. That girl. The girl next door. Mary Jane Watson. The woman I've loved since before I even liked girls. I'd like to tell you that's me next to her. Aw, heck, I'd even take him.
Hey! Stop the bus! That's me. Tell him to stop! Please! Stop! Hey! Stop the bus! Stop the bus! He's been chasing us since Woodhaven. Catch a cab, Parker! Thank you. I'm sorry I'm late. What a geek! Don't even think about it. You're so lame, Parker.
Midtown High seniors. No wandering. Proceed direct--Knock it off. Remember, it is a privilege to be here. We're guests of Columbia University's Science Department. So behave accordingly. Let's not have a repeat of our trip to the planetarium. Come on, stay together. Proceed up the steps and into the building. Where were you? Checking out the library. Looking at the books. Yeah, right.
Can we drive around the corner? Why? The entrance is right there. Dad, this is public school. I can't show up in a Rolls. I should trade my car for a Jetta ... because you flunked out of private school? It wasn't for me. Of course it was. Don't ever be ashamed of who you are. I'm not ashamed of who I am. It's just ... Just what, Harry? Forget it. Pete! Hi, Harry. Hey, man. What's up? Harry. Won't you be needing this? Thanks, Dad. This is my father, Norman Osborn. I've heard so much about you. It's a great honor to meet you, sir. Harry says you're a science whiz. You know I'm something of a scientist myself. I read all your research on nanotechnology. Really brilliant. You understood it? Yes, I wrote a paper on it. Impressive. Your parents must be very proud. I live with my aunt and uncle. Hey, you tow! let's move! Nice to meet you. Hope to see you again. Yeah! He doesn't seem so bad. Not if you're a genius. I think he wants to adopt you.
