Mary Jane Defending Peter Parker refers to a reaction image of Spider-Man character Mary Jane Watson turning towards the camera and saying something while Peter Parker stands behind her. The image has been used in combination with humorous lines in which Mary Jane defends Peter from harassment or corrects another person talking to him.


On May 3rd, 2002, the superhero film Spider-Man premiered in the United States.[1] In one scene of the film, the character Peter Parker, portrayed by Tobey Maguire, runs into his love interest Mary Jane Watson, played by Kirsten Dunst. Parker and Watson talk about her aspirations as an actress when Watson's boss at the restaurant where she works loudly reprimands her for making a mistake. Watson then turns and angrily acknowledges the information (scene shown below).

- Your drawer was short six dollars! Next time that happens, I'm going to take it out from your check. Excuse me, miss Watson!? I'm talking to you! Hey!
- Yes, Enrique, okay, I get you!
