Wonder Woman Quotes
“Col. Steve Trevor: [after Diana shows a girl how to swordfight] “That was sweet. Teaching her to disembowel her playmates like that.””
Diana Prince: Mother, the fate of the free world rests in me!
Wonder Woman’s Mother: Oh, all right. Eat first, save the free world later. You can’t be a martyr on an empty stomach.
Diana Prince: This can’t wait. The nation needs Wonder Woman.”
“Wonder Woman: I didn’t need you to save me. I needed you to stop Ares.
Steve Trevor: Hey, if it weren’t for me, you wouldn’t be here right now.
Wonder Woman: I’m an Amazon, Steve. We’re prepared from birth to give our lives in battle. I knew what the consequences were going in to this mission. I bet you would have acted differently, if I were a man.
Steve Trevor: Oh, playing the sex card again, are you? You know what? I’ve had just about enough of listening to you go on about how terrible men are.
Wonder Woman: Does the truth hurt, Steve?
Steve Trevor: News flash: The Amazons ain’t so perfect either. You act brave, but cutting yourselves off from the outside world was cowardly. Not to mention stupid. Like less communication between men and women is what the world needed.
Wonder Woman: How dare you?
Steve Trevor: No! I’m not done. You met your first man, what, like 15 minutes ago. And you think you have us all figured out. Well, I’m sorry, but not everything a man does is to further some misogynistic agenda. We don’t hold doors open or pull out chairs for women because we’re trying to keep you down. And I didn’t save you because I thought were some damsel in distress. I saved you because… Because I care about you, Diana. And I’m not gonna abandon a friend in need, man or woman.
Wonder Woman: You should have saved the world and not me.
Steve Trevor: Maybe I figured the world’s not worth saving if you’re not in it.”
Carlo Indrezzano: YOU saved me?
Wonder Woman: Yes.
Carlo Indrezzano: Impossible. You’re a woman!
Wonder Woman: I have heard that once or twice before.
“Wonder Woman – 1976
“Wonder Woman: I’m talking about what we do… living a secret life, always in danger every day. It’s a neverending battle. How do you do it?
Clark Kent/Superman: I do it because I have to. People need us. There’s a whole world suffering out there. We’ve been given the power to do something about. It is our gift… the reason we are here…
[Diana and Clark together]
Clark Kent/Superman: for truth and justice.
[the siren of a police car]
Clark Kent/Superman: Let’s go!
“Wonder Woman: Balance of Power – 2006
George Calvin: Let me make love to you.
Wonder Woman: Why?
George Calvin: You’re a very beautiful woman.
Wonder Woman: I mean, why should *I*?
“Wonder Woman (TV) – 1974
Andros I: Tell me about your Paradise Island.
Wonder Woman: Oh, it’s beautiful. It’s tranquil and peaceful. It’s outside of time Andros. We cherish old ways. We are close to the ancient, natural order of things. We live together in harmony with our living Earth.”Wonder Woman
“Steve Trevor: My assignment is a logical military alternative and a patriotic necessity.
Diana Prince: To quote Dr. Samuel Johnson: Patriotism is the last refuge of scoundrels.
[Etta gets a wide-eyed look of shock]
Steve Trevor: Yeoman Prince!
Diana Prince: [angrily] Yes sir!
Steve Trevor: Dismissed!
Diana Prince: Aye aye, sir!
Steve Trevor: Etta!
[Etta jumps and looks at Steve scared]
Steve Trevor: This is confidential.
Etta Candy: Oh, yes sir! Absolutely!
[Etta leaves the office desperately] “Wonder Woman
Queen Hippolyte: This is the Golden Lasso. Besides being made from an indestructible material, it also carries with it the power to compel people to tell the truth. Use it well, and with compassion.

“LOIS: The personal stuff you’ve been dealing with, did you feel like you needed someone to catch you? Were we not there for you?
DIANA: (pauses) You know how when people talk of depression, they talk of it both coming in storms and coming stealthily? So that, for many, it is the status quo, before they realize… that we lose our self-awareness in that. So I can’t… I can’t fault the people who love and care for me for not seeing what I did not myself see.
I think, again, when we have our moments of clarity, it is very easy to brush past them, to let the status quo continue. It can be very difficult and sometimes painful to turn and confront them. The only analogy I can think of is chronic pain. When that pain has been with you for so very long, it is background noise. And one is not aware of it until something happens that places it into relief.
LOIS: But you’re not talking about physical pain?
DIANA: No. And I am not certain I am talking about emotional pain either. It has been difficult for me to untangle. I think there is a psychological element to it. I think it is important–and I think as a reporter that you would be inclined to agree–that we question those basic assumptions that we often decide are true.
I have found myself in a position where a great deal of what I took as true no longer seems accurate.
That may be because I have changed. That may be because the world has changed. Or it may be because I was mistaken. And it is that last that is the most concerning. I put great stock in truth–I think that’s one of the reasons why we get along.”

The 1970s ‘Wonder Woman’ was sort of a kitsch thing. It was a very specific time for that, and it’s hard to modernize something like that.
Wonder Woman is Princess Diana of the immortal Amazons from Greek mythology. When army pilot Steve Trevor crashes on the warriors’ secluded island paradise, Diana wins the right to escort him home and make her people known to the world. Entering our cynical world for the first time, there’s a lot she must wrap her head around, especially our ways of war, hate, and, well… dating. Helping her are her superhuman strength and speed, as well as the trademark bulletproof bracelets, but it’s probably her Golden Lasso of Truth most people really wish they had.
Torn between a mission to promote peace and her own warrior upbringing, Wonder Woman fights evil while hoping to unlock the potential of a humanity she doesn’t always understand.
