The Wizard – “Do not patronize me, boy!”

Mary Bromfield – “Oh, my God.”

Shazam – “Mary… Mary, are you okay? Are you…”

Mary Bromfield – “How do you know my name?”

Shazam – “Uh… How do I know your name? Uh… One of my superpowers is name-guessing. Which is really weird, I bet. Uh, it’s not as cool as super-strength or super-speed, but it’s really helpful when I meet new people. Are you hurt?”

Mary Bromfield – “No, I’m okay. Thank you. Um… I just need a second to think. This has been such a weird day.”

Shazam – “Um, using my powers of super-observation, I see that you’re holding a letter from a college in your hand. Are you upset because you didn’t get in?”

Mary Bromfield – “I got in.”

Shazam – “Uh… well, now my superpowers are failing me and I am very confused.”

Mary Bromfield – “Yeah. Me too. I don’t know. I know I should be excited ’cause this is my dream and I’ve worked really, really hard for this, but it’s like… I don’t know. Leaving my family does not feel fun, you know?”

Shazam – “Could I, could I give you a little piece of advice? Don’t be worried about everybody else. Always look out for number one. Gandhi said that.”

Mary Bromfield – “I don’t think he said that.”

Shazam – “Yeah, he did.”

Mary Bromfield – “Gandhi did not say.”

Shazam – “Somebody like Gandhi said that.”

Mary Bromfield – “Take care of number one.”

Shazam – “It was a really wise… It might’ve been Yoda. Listen…”

Mary Bromfield – “I’m sorry, no.”

Shazam – “Agree to disagree. The point is, you do you, you know? You gotta look out for you. And get as far away from this place as you can.”

Mary Bromfield – “I don’t know if I want to.”

Shazam – “Of course you do. What’re you gonna do? You’re gonna live in a group home for the rest of your life?”

Shazam – “Look, families are for people who can’t take care of themselves, okay? So… You know, and you can take care of yourself. Also, look both ways when you cross the street.”


Billy Batson – “SHAZAM!”


Shazam – “Dude! Dude! Dude! Dude, did you see that?”

Freddy Freeman – “Yeah. You electrocuted a bus and almost killed these people.”

Freddy Freeman – “What’re your superpowers?”

Shazam – “Superpowers? Dude, I don’t even know how to pee in this thing!”


Billy Batson – “Well, you wanted me to be a hero.”

Freddy Freeman – “Are you kidding? Okay, no. Old guy’s up there harbouring multiple spiritual entities. Plus, he has the same powers as you. Plus, I mean, he knows what he’s doing. Plus, I mean, you’re my best friend. I don’t want you to die. All right?”

Billy Batson – “If a superhero can’t save his family, he’s not much of a hero.”

Freddy Freeman – “That was a decent catchphrase.”


Dr. Thaddeus Sivana – “Enough games, boy. You think a pack of children can…”

Shazam – “Wait, what?”

Dr. Thaddeus Sivana – “You will beg for mercy as I feast on your heart… slow.”

Shazam – “Are you making some big evil guy speech right now or something? You’re like, a mile away from me right now. There’s cars and trucks.”

Dr. Thaddeus Sivana – “I will have the world eating out of the palm of my hand…”

Shazam – “All I see is mouth moving. I don’t hear any…”

Dr. Thaddeus Sivana – “Only I have the power to unleash…”

Shazam – “Ah, whatever. Screw it.”

(Shazam walks out of a gentlemen’s club)

Freddy Freeman – “What’d you see? What’d you see? Were there boobies? You see nipples? W-Why aren’t you talking?”

Shazam – “We’re gonna need more money.”

Freddy Freeman – “Why? You were in there for, like, five minutes.”

Shazam – “Dude, they were very convincing!”


Freddy Freeman – “All right, well, I feel like every criminal is either on drugs or asleep by now. Wanna head home?”

Shazam – “Looking like this?”

Freddy Freeman – “Well, yeah, I mean, usually, we’d have a lair to go back to, but that’s long-term. Right now, we have a bunk bed.”


Freddy Freeman – “You have super strength! Can you fly?”


Freddy Freeman – “Hey! Covering her mouth like you’re gonna kidnap her is not gonna make her less scared, okay?”

Shazam – “Darla, it’s me. It’s Billy. I know I don’t look like me. A wizard made me like look this.”

Freddy Freeman – “Maybe don’t start with “wizard.” It’s just gonna make her more confused.”

Freddy Freeman – “Some old guy brought me to a temple and he made me say, “Shazam.””

Freddy Freeman – “Are you more powerful than a locomotive?”

Shazam – “What’s a locomotive?”


Shazam – “I can’t talk to fish! Even if I could, I mean, honestly, what could we do with that that’s cool?”

Freddy Freeman (wearing an Aquaman shirt) – “I don’t know, maybe command an army of billions from the ocean?”

Shazam – “Oh yeah… well, that’s not THAT cool.”


Freddy Freeman – “Flight or invisibility. If you could have one superpower, flight or invisibility, what would you pick? I mean, everybody chooses flight. You know why?”

Billy Batson – “So, they can fly away from this conversation?”

Freddy Freeman – “No, no, ’cause heroes fly. And who doesn’t want people to think they’re a hero, right? But invisibility, no way. That’s pervy. Spying around on people who don’t even know you’re there. Sneaking around everywhere. It’s a total villian power, right?”


Shazam – “Hands, lighting with my hands, lighting with my hands.”



And finally…
