The Spider-Man: No Way Home Line Fans Couldn't Help But Love

The following article contains spoilers for "Spider-Man: No Way Home."

After watching "Spider-Man: No Way Home," you may come to the consensus that it's arguably one of the darkest films ever set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. From major deaths to reality-altering consequences to one's actions, it's a lot to take in. However, those factors shouldn't overshadow the fact that the movie is also incredibly funny.

The film is packed with humorous moments, especially when the other two Spider-Men, played by Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, come into the picture. It's a blast hearing them trade stories about the various villains they've had to fight in their respective franchises. It's amazing every time their differences get highlighted, like when Tom Holland's Peter Parker talks about the Avengers, and Maguire's version asks who the Avengers are.

These moments of levity help make the darker moments more palatable. It's hard to pick a single scene as the funniest, but one Redditor would like to offer a candidate.

Norman's something of a scientist himself

The highest possible honor a line of movie dialogue can receive is being turned into a meme. And there's no shortage of meme potential in Sam Raimi's original "Spider-Man" trilogy, not the least of which is when Norman Osborn (Willem Dafoe) says, "You know, I'm something of a scientist myself." Naturally, bringing Osborn back for "No Way Home" means the film had an opportunity to make millions of internet-driven millennials positively giddy.

After Norman's captured in one of Doctor Strange's (Benedict Cumberbatch) holding cells, Peter tells the villains of a plan he has to send them back to their own realities without the risk of immediately dying. If he can find a way to cure them of their various ailments, he can prevent scores of deaths. Norman Osborn offers his assistance, and it's at this moment he informs Peter, "You know, I'm something of a scientist myself."

Given fans' reactions in various movie theaters across the country, people loved the line, especially Redditor u/StarDestroyer50. Others soon chimed in with their takes on the line and how glorious it was, like u/credible_hulk, who wrote, "Such shameless and bare naked fan service and it feels exactly appropriate, in-character and relevant this specific story which they are telling." It's just too bad they couldn't squeeze in a scene where one of the Spider-Men is sitting behind a desk.
