Doctor Octopus (aka Dr. Otto Octavius): My Rosie's dead. My dream is dead. And these monstrous things should be at the bottom of the river, along with me. Something in my head. Something talking. The inhibitor chip! Gone. Rebuild? No. Peter was right. I miscalculated. I couldn't have miscalculated. It was working, wasn't it? Yes. We could rebuild. Enlarge the containment field, make it bigger, stronger than ever. But we need money. Steal it? No, no, no, I'm not a criminal. That's right. The real crime would be not to finish what we started. We'll do it here. The power of the sun in the palm of my hand. Nothing will stand in my way. Nothing!
