Lois Lane: How did you know that?
Clark Kent: Know what?
Lois Lane: You just described the exact contents of my purse.
Clark Kent: Hmm. Wild guess.

Jor-El: This is no fantasy – no careless product of wild imagination. No, my friends. These indictments that I have brought to you today, specific charges herein against the individuals.

Superman: Is that how a warped brain like yours gets its kicks? By planning the death of innocent people?

Warden: This country is safe again, Superman, thanks to you.
Superman: No, sir. Don’t thank me, Warden. We’re all part of the same team. Good night.
