Lex Luthor's Memorable Quotes:
Lex Luthor
This is Lex Luthor. Only one thing alive with less than four legs can hear this frequency, Superman, and that's you.
Lex Luthor
It's kryptonite, Superman. Little souvenir from the old home town. I spared no expense to make you feel right at home.

Otis

[swimming in the pool, listening to news broadcasts about Superman]

Miss Teschmacher! Turn it off.[lying by the sunlamps] Lex, what's the story on this guy? Do you think it's the genuine article?If he is, he's not from this world.Why?Because, if any human being were going to perpetrate such a fantastic hoax, it would have been me! Otis! My robe!Right away, Mr. Luthor!It all fits somehow, his coming here to Metropolis. And at this particular time. There's a kind of cruel justice about it. I mean, to commit the crime of the century, a man naturally wants to face the challenge of the century.Listen, Mr. Luthor, maybe this guy that flies is just sort of passing through, you know?[Lex gets out of the pool, and stops at the top step. Otis starts helping Lex on with the robe as the bottom of it proceeds to get soaked] Passing through? Not on your life. Which I would gladly sacrifice, by the way, for the opportunity of destroying everything that he represents. And, Otis, by the way, next time put my robe on *after* I'm out of the pool.Oooohhhh!
Lex Luthor
Eve Teschmacher

[in Luthor's underground hideout]

Miss Teschmacher, how many girls do you know who have a Park Avenue address like this one?[sarcastically] Park Avenue address? Two hundred feet *below*?
Lex Luthor
[repeated line][shouting] Miss Teschmacher!
