Ralph: Mr. Corben, I hope you don't mind me asking, but after all these months I just gotta know. How do you rate all this?
Superman: How did you do it, Corben? A drug? Some kind of operation?
(Corben flashed Superman with the Kryptonite)
Corben: I think you are jealous of me, because now I'm the real Man of Steel.
Corben: I can't even feel a kiss... What did they do to me?
Corben: It's all fake. A FRAUD! There's the reality! The metal behind the man! It's all I am now! It's who I am... Metallo.
Metallo: Lois Lane. I'd give you a kiss, if I still had my lips.
Lois: Let go of me, you walking waffle iron!
Lois: You're never going to get away with this, Corben.
Metallo: Remember how you left me, Superman? Buried in rock. I couldn't move! I couldn't see! I couldn't hear! But I could think! And all I thought about was how I was going to make you pay! Goodbye, hero.
Metallo: You ought to be paying attention my friend! The tabloids will be all over you! You're about to become famous. The man who watched Superman die!
Metallo: Somebody speak up! Or I'll tear this neighborhood apart! Brick by brick.
Metallo: Now, where is Superman?!
Metallo: Well, what have we here?
