IMDb has some quotes including a couple of them herein:
What would I want with a penis?
Seriously, it would be exhausting to have one organ... constantly directing the course of your life.
Elizabeth, peach, penis envy is figurative. It means a woman experiences an envy of the male position in the world. His dominance. His ability to penetrate not just the woman, but... life.
Can't solve war by simply studying men's feelings.
-Of course, you're right. Men's minds are far too limited. That's why we need women.
My aunt said, "A woman must not be told how to use her freedom... she must find out for herself."
-Your aunt, my dear, is quoting Margaret Sanger.
My aunt is Margaret Sanger.
- The Margaret Sanger?
Dominance, inducement, submission... and compliance. All human relationships break down into the interplay... between these categories of emotion. A person is most happy when they are submissive to a loving authority. It is essential that a person submits to an authority willingly... that it is their idea. We get into trouble when people feel forced to do something... they don't want to do, and that is merely compliance.
If the nature of men is inherently violent and anarchistic... and the nature of women is inherently loving and nurturing... then shouldn't women be the ones to rule the world?
People who comply instead of submit... are unhappy and repressed... and this can lead to resentment. Taken to its extremes... it can lead to crime, war, fascism.
How do you avoid compliance? It seems like... that is built into most situations.
- Inducement. Inducement is the act of seducing somebody to your way of thinking... dominating them so completely... that what you want is what they want... and they love giving it to you... and that, ladies, is the key to life, to love, to happiness... to peace. Women are better at inducement than men.
Why is Wonder Woman an Amazon?
-In Greek mythology, Amazons were a powerful tribe of women... who lived without men.
- Without men?
It is important to me that young girls... realize they have the power within themselves to create their own destiny. To be president of the United States if they want.
Wonder Woman has a secret identity. Yes, she does.
- Why is that?
She has to hide her true self from man's world.
Who says there's no pain in love? Love is painful. We hurt the ones we love all the time with our words, our deeds. The nature of love is pain.
Wonder Woman will not be an ordinary comic book. But instead, the start of a powerful feminist movement. She will be carefully crafted, psychological propaganda... based on a lifetime of research into the human mind... inserted into a populist medium to further equal rights for women.
You don't even deny that these images are overtly sexual.
-An erotic component is necessary. How else is submission supposed to be pleasurable? I am teaching readers to submit to a loving authority. And that submission is pleasurable. Young boys must learn this... if they are to grow up respecting powerful women.
What is powerful about a woman running around in a bathing suit?
What troubles me is that you're trying out... your so-called psychological experiment on children.
-Children are our great hope.
Do you let your children read it'? Your little girl? I don't know why your wife puts up with it.
I thought I knew everything. I thought love wasn't enough. But it... It has to. It has to be enough…
Wonder Woman is a love letter. She is a fantasy. She comes from a distant place where there is beauty... and justice, and respect. I write what I see about women I know... women who are every bit as just... and strong, and capable as Wonder Woman. Now, we can debate the length of her hemline. But what is important... is the way Wonder Woman reforms criminals. She makes them tell the truth. That is what she stands for... the truth.
