"Spider-Man! This is why only fools are heroes — because you never know when some lunatic will come along with a sadistic choice. Let die the woman you love... or... suffer the little children! Make your choice, Spider-Man, and see how a hero is rewarded! (Spider-Man: Don't do it, Goblin!) We are who we choose to be...now, CHOOSE!
~ The Green Goblin holding Mary Jane and a tram full of innocent children hostage, forcing Spider-Man to decide whom to save first.
