[Cyclops doesn't know if Logan's an imposter.]
Wolverine: It's me!
Cyclops: Prove it!
Wolverine: You're a dick.
Wolverine: Magneto's right: there is a war coming. Are you sure you're on the
Storm: At least I've chosen a side.
[About his claws.]
Rogue: When they come out... does it hurt?
Wolverine: Every time.
Bobby: Welcome to Mutant High.
Dr. Jean Grey: Mutants are not the ones mankind should fear.
[To Senator Kelly]
Magneto: Are you a God-fearing man, Senator? That is such a strange phrase. I've
always thought of God as a teacher; a bringer of light, wisdom, and
understanding. You see, I think what you really fear is me. Me and my kind. The
Brotherhood of Mutants. Oh, it's not so surprising really. Mankind has always
feared what it doesn't understand. Well, don't fear God, Senator, and certainly
don't fear me. Not any more.
Magneto: Welcome to the future.
Senator Kelly: I have here a list of names of identified mutants living right
here in the United States.
Dr. Jean Grey: Senator--
Senator Kelly: Here's a girl in Illinois who can walk through walls. Now what's
to stop her from walking into a bank vault, or the White House, or
[indicating the gallery]
Senator Kelly: into their houses?
Dr. Jean Grey: Senator, please--
Senator Kelly: ...and there are even rumors, Miss Grey, of mutants so powerful
that they can enter our minds and control our thoughts, taking away our
God-given free will. Now I think the American people deserve the right to decide
if they want their children to be in school with mutants. To be taught by
mutants! Ladies and gentlemen, the truth is that mutants are very real, and that
they are among us. We must know who they are, and above all, what they can do!
Prof. Charles Francis Xavier: Ah, Logan. I'd like you to meet Ororo Monroe, also
called Storm. This is Scott Summers, also called Cyclops. They saved your life.
I believe you already know Dr. Jean Grey. You are in my School for the Gifted
for Mutants. You'll be safe here from Magneto.
Wolverine: What's a Magneto?
Prof. Charles Francis Xavier: A very powerful mutant. He believes that a war is
brewing between mutants and the rest of humanity. I've been following his
activities for some time. The man who attacked you is an associate of his called
[looks at Storm]
[looks at Xavier]
Wolverine: What do they call you? "Wheels"? This is the stupidest
thing I've ever heard. students.
[Logan has found his way to the Professor's office]
Prof. Charles Francis Xavier: I'm Charles Xavier. Would you like some breakfast?
Logan: Where am I?
Prof. Charles Francis Xavier: West Chester, New York. My people brought you here
for medical attention.
Logan: I don't need medical attention.
Prof. Charles Francis Xavier: Yes, of course.
Dr. Jean Grey: Scott, when I tell you, open your eyes.
Doctor Jean Grey: Trust me!
Sabretooth: You owe me a scream.
[Victor Creed has Storm pinned to the wall]
Victor Creed: [Growl] Scream for me.
Wolverine: Hey, bub, I'm not finished with you yet.
Senator Kelly: What the hell have you done to me?!
Magneto: Senator, this is pointless. Who would take you in now that your one of
Wolverine: This is mine!
[Logan confronts Magneto for the first time]
Magneto: You must be Wolverine. That remarkable metal doesn't run through your
entire body, does it?
Logan: What do you want with me?
Magneto: My dear boy, whoever said I wanted you?
[Logan looks at Marie]
Rogue: I saved your life!
Logan: No, you didn't.
Dr. Jean Grey: I think you'll be comfortable here.
Wolverine: Where's your room?
Dr. Jean Grey: With Scott, down the hall.
Wolverine: Is that your gift? Putting up with that guy?
Dr. Jean Grey: Actually, I'm telekinetic. I can move things with my mind.
Wolverine: Really? What kind of things?
Dr. Jean Grey: [shuts closet doors behind him with her mind] All kinds of
things. I also have some telepathic ability.
Wolverine: Like the Professor?
Dr. Jean Grey: Nowhere near that powerful. But he's teaching me to develop it.
Wolverine: I'm sure he is. So read my mind.
Dr. Jean Grey: I'd rather not.
Wolverine: C'mon. You afraid you might like it?
Dr. Jean Grey: I doubt it.
[The X-Men help Senator Kelly, a victim of Magneto's mutant machine.]
Senator Kelly: I was afraid they'd--
Prof. Charles Francis Xavier: Treat you like a mutant?
Prof. Charles Francis Xavier: We're not what you think. Not all of us.
Senator Kelly: Tell that to the ones who did this to me.
Rogue: The first boy I ever kissed ended up in a coma for three weeks. I can
still feel him inside my head. It's the same with you.
Wolverine: There's not many people that'll understand what you're going through.
But I think this guy, Xavier, is one of them. He seems to genuinely want to help
you. And that's a rare thing, for people like us.
Magneto: You homo sapiens and your guns.
[commenting on the X-Men uniforms]
Wolverine: You actually go outside in these things?
Cyclops: Well, what would you prefer? Yellow spandex?
Logan: What the hell are you doing?
Rogue: I'm sorry. I need a ride, I thought you could help me.
Logan: Get out.
Rogue: Where am I supposed to go?
Logan: I don't know.
Rogue: You don't know, or you don't care.
Logan: Pick one.
Storm: Help us! Fight with us!
Logan: Fight with you! Join the team? Be an X-Man? Who the hell do you think you
are? You're a mutant. The whole world out there is full of people who hate and
fear you and you're wasting your time trying to protect them? I've got better
things to do!
Senator Kelly: You're evading the real question. Three words: Are mutants
Jean Grey: That's an unfair question, Senator Kelly, after all, the wrong person
behind the wheel of a car can be dangerous.
Senator Kelly: Well we do license people to drive.
Jean Grey: But not to live.
Storm: Do you know what happens to a toad when it's struck by lightning? The
same thing that happens to everything else.
Magneto: Why do you come here, Charles?
Prof. Charles Francis Xavier: Why do you ask questions to which you already know
Magneto: Ah, yes. Your continuing search for hope. You know this plastic prisom
won't hold me forever. The war is still coming, Charles, and I intend to fight
it... by any means necessary.
Prof. Charles Francis Xavier: And I will always be there... old friend.
Logan: So what kind of a name is "Rogue"?
Rogue: I don't know. What kind of a name is "Wolverine"?
Logan: Name's Logan.
[Trapped inside the Statue of Liberty]
Cyclops: Storm, fry him!
Magneto: Oh yes! A bolt of lightening into a huge copper conductor. I thought
you lived at a school?
Prof. Charles Francis Xavier: Don't give up on them, Erik.
Magneto: What would you have me do, Charles? I've heard these arguments before.
Prof. Charles Francis Xavier: That was a long time ago. Mankind has evolved
Magneto: Yes, into us.
Magneto: [pointing to his head] Are you sneaking around in here, Charles?
Whatever are you looking for?
Prof. Charles Francis Xavier: I'm looking for hope.
Magneto: I will bring you hope, old friend, and I ask only one thing in return
-- don't get in my way.
Magneto: We are the future, Charles, not them. They no longer matter.
Mystique: You know, people like you are the reason I was afraid to go to school
as a child.
Wolverine: So, couldn't wait to get my shirt off again, huh?
Prof. Charles Francis Xavier: There are more powerful mutants out there. Why
should this one be so important?
Cyclops: Maybe it's his way with people.
Prof. Charles Francis Xavier: You don't like him?
Cyclops: How could you tell?
Prof. Charles Francis Xavier: Well, I am psychic, you know.
Wolverine: Well, it certainly is a big, round room.
Wolverine: You going to tell me to stay away from your girl?
Cyclops: If I had to do that, she wouldn't be my girl.
Wolverine: Well, then I guess you've got nothing to worry about, do ya, Cyclops?
Cyclops: It must burn you up that a boy like me saved your life, huh? Gotta be
careful. I might not be there next time. Oh, and Logan -- stay away from my
Wolverine: Felt like she killed me.
Prof. Charles Francis Xavier: If she held on any longer, she could have.
Prof. Charles Francis Xavier: Mankind isn't evil, just uninformed.
Prof. Charles Francis Xavier: Mutation: it is the key to our evolution. It has
enabled us to evolve from a single-celled organism into the dominant species on
the planet. This process is slow, and normally taking thousands and thousands of
years. But every few hundred millennia, evolution leaps forward.
[In the ring, before the fight with Wolverine]
Emcee: Whatever you do, don't hit him in the balls.
Stu: You said "anything goes"!
Emcee: Anything goes, but he'll take it personal.
[At the Statue of Liberty.]
Magneto: Magnificent, isn't she?
Rogue: I've seen it.
Magneto: I first saw her in 1949. America was going to be the land of tolerance.
Rogue: Are you going to kill me?
Magneto: Because there is no land of tolerance. There is no peace here, or
Prof. Charles Francis Xavier: Where are you going?
Wolverine: To find her.
Wolverine: The traditional way: look!
Logan: There's someone here.
Logan: I don't know. Keep your eye open.
[Preparing Senator Kelly for the mutation machine.]
Senator Kelly: What are you going to do?
Magneto: Let's just say God works too slow.
Magneto: Does it ever wake you in the middle of the night? The feeling that one
day they will pass that foolish law or one just like it and come for you? And
Prof. Charles Francis Xavier: It does indeed.
Magneto: What do you do, when you wake up to that?
Prof. Charles Francis Xavier: I feel a great swell of pity for the poor fool who
comes to that school... looking for trouble.
Cyclops: All right, we can insert here at the George Washington Bridge, come
around the bank just off of Manhattan, land on the far side of Liberty Island,
Wolverine: What about harbor patrol? Radar?
Cyclops: If they have anything that can pick up our jet, they deserve to catch
Senator Kelly: [on registering mutants] We must know who they are, and above
all, what they can do.
Rogue: Suddenly my life doesn't look that bad.
Toad: Don't you people ever die?
Logan: Everybody get out of here!
Logan: I can't move.
Magneto: Ah, my brothers, welcome.
[Looks at Logan]
Magneto: And you,let's point those claws of your in the safer direction.
[Sabretooth has returned without Rogue]
Toad: Weren't you supposed to bring someone back with you?
Logan: Have you ever--
Dr. Jean Grey: Used Cerebro? No. It takes a degree of control and for someone
like me it's--
Stu: You owe me some money.
Stu's friend: Come on Stu.
Stu: No one takes beating like that without a mark to show for it.
Stu's friend: Come on Stu.
Wolverine: You lost your money. You keep this up you'll lose something else.
Stu: I know what you are.
Wolverine: Gotta get her out of there. Cyclops, can you hit it?
Cyclops: The rings moving to fast.
Wolverine: Just shoot it!
Cyclops: I'll kill her!
Storm: You could fly right over the torch.
Wolverine: Then let me go. If I don't make it, then at least you can still blast
the damn thing!
Cyclops: All right, do it. Jean use your power, try to steady him.
Storm: Hang on to something.
Magneto: Why do none of you understand what I'm trying to do? Those people down
there- they control our fate and the fate of every other mutant! Well, soon our
fate will be theirs.
[Rogue screams for help]
Wolverine: Your so full of shit! If your really so righteous, it'd be you in
