Superman (1978) Poster


Margot Kidder: Lois Lane



  • Superman : Easy, miss. I've got you.

    Lois Lane : You - you've got me? Who's got you?

  • [Interviewing Superman] 

    Lois Lane : How big are you... um... how *tall* are you?

  • [Superman surprises Lois on her balcony] 

    Lois Lane : Um, um, would you like a glass of wine?

    Superman : Uh, no, no thanks. I never drink when I fly.

  • Lois Lane : Can you read my mind? Do you know what it is that you do to me? I don't know who you are. Just a friend from another star. Here I am, like a kid out of school. Holding hands with a god. I'm a fool. Will you look at me? Quivering. Like a little girl, shivering. You can see right through me. Can you read my mind? Can you picture the things I'm thinking of? Wondering why you are... all the wonderful things you are. You can fly. You belong in the sky. You and I... could belong to each other. If you need a friend... I'm the one to fly to. If you need to be loved... here I am. Read my mind.

  • Superman : I'm here to fight for truth, and justice, and the American way.

    Lois Lane : [laughs]  You're gonna end up fighting every elected official in this country!

  • [Superman and Lois are standing on opposite sides of a large planter] 

    Lois Lane : What color underwear am I wearing?

    Superman : [looking]  Hmmm...

    Lois Lane : Oh, I'm sorry, I embarrassed you, didn't I?

    Superman : Oh, no, no, no, not at all, Miss Lane, it's just that this planter must be made of lead.

    Lois Lane : Uh, yes it is. So?

    Superman : Well, you see, I, uh, I sort of have a problem seeing through lead.

    Lois Lane : Oh, that's interesting.

    Lois Lane : [Writing]  Problem seeing through lead. Hmmm. Uh, d-do you have a first name?

    Superman : What do you mean, like, uh, Ralph or something?

    Lois Lane : No, no, I mean like...

    [walks away from the planter] 

    Superman : Pink.

    Lois Lane : Huh?

    Superman : Pink.

    [Lois walks back to the planter] 

    Superman : Um, sorry, Miss Lane, I didn't mean to embarrass you.

  • Lois Lane : Any more at home like you?

    Clark Kent : Uh, not really, no.

  • Clark Kent : Excuse me, Mr. White. I was wondering if, if, uh, perhaps you could arrange for half my salary to be sent to this address on a weekly basis.

    Lois Lane : Your bookie, right?

    Clark Kent : My what?

    Lois Lane : Don't tell me: he sends a check every week to his sweet, grey-haired old mother.

    Clark Kent : Actually, she's silver-haired.

  • Clark Kent : Really, Lois, supposing that man had shot you? Is it worth risking your life over ten dollars, two credit cards, a hairbrush, and a lipstick?

    Lois Lane : How did you know that?

    Clark Kent : Know what?

    Lois Lane : You just described the exact contents of my purse.

    [Clark peeks in her purse] 

    Clark Kent : Hmm. Uh, wild guess.

  • Lois Lane : [being rescued, stammering]  Who... are you?

    Superman : A friend.

    [flies away] 

    Superman : [waves]  Bye.

    [Lois waves, and stares at Superman, then sinks into a faint] 

  • Superman : Uh, you really shouldn't smoke, you know, Miss Lane.

    Lois Lane : Don't tell me. Lung cancer, right?

    Superman : [x-rays her lungs]  Well, not yet, thank goodness.

  • Lois Lane : What a super man... "Superman"!

  • Clark Kent : [in Superman's voice]  Lois, there's something I have to tell you. I'm really...

    [In Clark's voice] 

    Clark Kent : I-I mean I was, at first, really nervous about tonight, uh... but then I decided, darn it! I'm gonna show you the time of your life.

    Lois Lane : [still infatuated with Superman]  That's Clark, nice.

  • Jimmy Olsen : What are you writing, Miss Lane?

    Lois Lane : An ode to spring. How do you spell massacre?

  • Lois Lane : Oh, hi Rex!

    Rex Reed : Hey Lois!

    Lois Lane : See anything good today?

    Rex Reed : Not 'til you came along.

    Lois Lane : Oh, Rex, this is, uh...

    Clark Kent : Clark Kent.

    Rex Reed : Yeah, see you around.

  • Lois Lane : As you know, my newspaper, the Daily Planet, is very interested in that dam, Chief, but what I don't understand is why you would sell out to a faceless person that you've never met. I mean, you don't even know his name.

    [the Chief taps on Lois' dashboard as she goes off the road] 

    Lois Lane : Oh, yeah!

    Indian Chief : At the stupid high price that he offered for this worthless piece of desert, I hope it's Custer!

    Lois Lane : Perfect! That's just what I need. Thank you.

  • Lois Lane : [Repeated line; whenever Lois is in danger]  Help me! HELP!
