Toward the start of the game where Spider-Man has to go to school (and just before the race with the Human Torch) wander around the city and explore. Spider-Man will make comments like, "I need to get to class" and "I really have to get to school." One comment is something along the lines of, "I cant miss anymore class. I've been absent nine times... nine... times." This is in reference to a scene from the movie Ferris Bueller's Day Off in which the principal is taking note of the main character's habit of skipping class.
