Peter Parker: What? I thought you said your dad really liked me?
MJ: Yeah, well, not anymore!

Wong: Burn the place down.
Doctor Strange: So, Peter, to what do I owe the pleasure?
Peter Parker: Right. I’m really sorry to bother you, sir, but…

Peter Parker: It’s not about me. I mean, this is really hurting a lot of people. My Aunt May, Happy. My best friend. My girlfriend. Their futures are ruined just because they know me, and they’ve done nothing wrong.
Doctor Strange: I am so sorry, but even if I wanted to, I don’t have the Time Stone anymore.
Peter Parker: That’s right. I’m really sorry if I wasted your time.
Doctor Strange: No, you didn’t.
Peter Parker: Just forget about it.
Wong: He will. He’s really good at forgetting things.
Doctor Strange: [referring to the runes of Cafkal] Oh, it’s just a standard spell of forgetting. Won’t turn back time, but at least people will forget that you were ever Spider-Man.
Peter Parker: Seriously?
Wong: No. Not seriously. That spell travels the dark borders between known and unknown reality. It’s too dangerous.
Doctor Strange: We’ve used it for a lot less. Do you remember the full moon party in Kamar-Taj?
Doctor Strange: Exactly.
Peter Parker: So what is this place?
Doctor Strange: The Sanctum’s built at the intersection of cosmic energy currents. We were the first to seek them out. Some of these walls are thousands of years old. And they shot an episode of Equalizer here in the 80’s.
Doctor Strange: [as he’s starting to cast the spell] The entire world is about to forget that Peter Parker is Spider-Man. Including me.
Peter Parker: Everyone? Can’t some people still know?
Doctor Strange: That’s not how the spell works, and very difficult and dangerous to change it mid-casting.

Peter Parker: So my girlfriend is just going to forget about everything we’ve been through? I mean, is she even going to be my girlfriend?
Doctor Strange: That depends. Was she your girlfriend just because you’re Spider-Man, or…
Peter Parker: I don’t know. I really hope not.
Doctor Strange: Alright. Fine. Everyone in the world is going to forget that you’re Spider-Man, except your girlfriend.
Peter Parker: Thank you so much. Oh, my God. Ned. Ned!
Doctor Strange: What is a Ned?
Peter Parker: He’s my best friend, so it’s really important to me that Ned knows.
Doctor Strange: Okay. Let’s not change the parameters of the spell anymore while I’m casting it.
Peter Parker: Okay, I’m done. I’m done. I swear I’m done. I’m done.
Peter Parker: Yeah, but my Aunt May should really know.
Doctor Strange: Peter, stop tampering with the spell.
Peter Parker: Once she found out that I was Spider-Man, it was really messy, and I don’t think that I can go through with that again. So, my Aunt May?
Doctor Strange: Yes!
Peter Parker: Oh, thank you.
Peter Parker: Happy?
Doctor Strange: No. I am annoyed.
Peter Parker: No, it’s a nickname. Harold “Happy” Hogan.
Peter Parker: [to Strange as he’s casting the spell] Basically, everyone who knew that I was Spider-Man before, should still know!
Peter Parker: Did it work?
Doctor Strange: No. You changed my spell six times.
Peter Parker: Five times.
Doctor Strange: You changed my spell. You don’t do that! I told you, and that is why! That spell was completely out of control. If I hadn’t shut it down, something catastrophic could’ve happened.
Peter Parker: Stephen, listen, I am so sorry.
Doctor Strange: Call me sir.
Peter Parker: I’m sorry, sir.
