Quotes by Edward Brock (Earth-616)
- You only need to trust yourself. Is this who you really want to be? Some crime boss, pulling strings, benefitting from theft and murder? We just risked our lives stopping a man who was doing that. You've lost your empire... but weren't you always lucky? Now you can follow your own code. Punish the people who truly deserve it. Protect the innocent. After all, Cat... this city always need heroes.
- Everyone's got an angel and a devil on their shoulder. That's what they said in group. What matters is which one you listen to. That's what they said in group. Jenna's my angel. I have to listen to her... ...or the devil might start talking again. I'm a force of good now. I've been given the gift of healing. I could heal this guy's hepatitis, even... If I wanted to. When I meet Jenna her veins were full of poison. But I used my powers to cleanse her. She was reborn. New. She now helps me navigate the streets. Helps me cut the cancer out of society. She's the proof that I can do good.
- Men like these... They bring out the evil in people. That's how they make their money. They don't want you to change for the good... So I show them the old me.
- The darkness that blankets this city is nothing. Nothing! Not compared to the shroud that Spider-Man pulled over me! He stole my life... shattered it... then cast it aside like yesterday's news! So it is only fitting, only fair, that I do the same to him! And I will. Very... very... soon!

- --now I know everything she ever knew! But that means......she knows as much about me!!!

- No! We must redirect our anger----channel our restive energies toward the ruthless parasites who prey on the innocent!

- Too much has happened to both of us for things to go back to exactly the way they were before. I need some time to think about the way things were between us.

- We're going to make you all right again, Ann......we promise. I promise.
- A whole clip at point blank range in the face is even little much for my other to cope with-- --but as soon as we get ourselves together, we are going to reduce you to steak tartare!
- Welcome back, my other. It was starting to feel wrong without all the familiar nightmares running through my brain. You sort of get used to living in hell's side pocket.
- We're not monster! We're not! We can't be! No! No!
- We can't go on like this. It's got to stop. It's got to.
- "My name is Eddie Brock, and I used to have a symbiotic relationship with an alien. When the Other left, it took half of me with it. Can’t live without it. Can’t live with what it’s become. I remember a t-shirt my ex-wife gave me a long time ago. ‘If you love something, set it free; if it doesn’t come back to you – hunt it down and kill it.’
- Funny thing. Turns out chocolate’s a good source of the phenethylamine the Other needs. So, as long as I remember to buy it presents now and then – we’re gonna live happily ever after.
- But we promised Ann that we would never try to kill Spider-Man again! And she said that if we could separate into Eddie and the other for good-- --she might consider taking Eddie back!
- Do they have white phosphorous grenades on your cesspool of a planet?
- The last thing we want to do, Beck! We'll recall the symbiote from our face -- for you.
- This is your doing, villain! Another innocent hurt... ...one important to us!
- These villains force our hand......we must save Beck!
- I live for these moments, Spider-Man. Me... Eddie Brock. Beating you down... Like the weak-kneed little boy that you are... And then leaving you there. Broken, knowing that any time I want... We can come back and do it again.
- Oooo... sexy. We love liberated women.
- I must go protect the innocent creatures that maniac is trying to hunt. I'll try to keep Alchemax's name out of it.
- You're the Spider-Woman. We've heard of you.
- It's either you now... or the entire planet later.
- No, no, no. You've got it all wrong. Venom's old news... All played out. These days I prefer to be called-- Toxin!
- I'm not done with you! I'm gonna come back for you, Flash. Gonna teach you a lesson. Show you how dangerous a monster can be! And not just yours!
- Rumor has it that a symbiote is loose in New York. Somebody care to bring me up to speed?
- We're back!
- If our day is coming... let it come.
- We couldn't figure it out. Why we kept losing control... the voices... the nightmares... every time we lost control and turned into that... thing... we thought we were going insane... but we know better now. My other was just reacting instinctively. Like an animal... baring its teeth to its alpha. Showing its belly to the same monster S.H.I.E.L.D. cut up and used to create those soldiers. The primordial symbiote that carried Knull's darkness across the stars... the Grendel. The alley. The warehouse. The rooftoop. My other was reacting to something else. Protecting me. We should have seen it. It was never us. It was you. Now... show us your teeth.
- Carnage. Son. I never thought I'd say this but-- How would you feel about a temporary--a very temporary--alliance with your old man?
- We comprise a symbiote. I share this body with an alien other. But the part of me that is human still retains my original unaltered DNA.
- Somebody has to do it, Matt......somebody has to save Spider-Man!
- Frankly, Carnage......no. You're just a self-centered geek who likes to inflict pain and suffering on others......you're a scum!
- I'd say it's pretty simple, Webs. It means -- we've got a fight on our hands.
- Way I see it, these Poisons might be hard cases now, but that wasn't always the way. Before they found out that Venom Symbiotes would turn them into monsters, they were weak, cowardly. That just gave them a shot in the arm. Gave them a kick in the rear, but it turned them into bullies, too. Guess we all know a thing or two about that. But we aren't the ones hunting people -- consuming people. We chose to be better -- to be protectors. They think that's a weakness. Despite taking dozens of us, they still don't know the truth. That valuing life doesn't make you incapable of taking it when survival is at stake. They won't know how to deal with us... not when we stop running... not when we start hitting back... not when we're willing to die fighting them.
- Big boys like you shouldn't make promises... you can't keep from breaking! So we'll wash your dirty little lungs out with... us!
- Come to papa, Carnage... we have some serious catching up to do!
- No. No. No. No. These Guardsmen were just doing their jobs. But now that the crash has set me free... the killers that snuffed out their innocent lives will suffer at the hands of... Venom!!!
- Wrong bad guy, Johnny! Now point that thing somewhere else, because... we're surrounded!
- Thanks, killer, but after I'm done eating Spider-Man's spleen... I'm coming for you. 'cause I'm that kind of guy!
- That's the place. The guy inside -- he's called Haze Mancer -- he can tell us about those space pirates of yours.
