Storm: Do you know what happens to a toad when it's struck by lightning?
[pause]
Storm: The same thing that happens to everything else.

Senator Kelly: You're evading the real question. Three words: Are mutants dangerous?
Doctor 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.
Doctor Jean Grey: But not to live.

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!

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.

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.

Rogue: You know, you should wear your seat belt.
Wolverine: Now look, kid, I don't need advice on auto...
[car crashes]

Magneto: I will bring you hope, old friend. And I ask only one thing in return: don't get in my way.
[walking away]
Magneto: We are the future, Charles, not them! They no longer matter!

Rogue: [tracing the passage along a map] Niagra Falls... up the Canadian Rockies, and then... it's only a few hundred miles to Anchorage.
Rogue's Boyfriend: Won't it be kinda cold?
Rogue: Well, that's the point, stupid, otherwise it wouldn't be an adventure!

Senator Kelly: What the hell have you done to me?
Magneto: Senator, this is pointless. Who would take you in now that you're one of us?

Hey, bub, I'm not finished with you yet.

Wolverine

Prof. Charles Francis Xavier: I'm Charles Xavier. Would you like some breakfast?
Logan: Where am I?
Prof. Charles Francis Xavier: Westchester, New York. My people brought you here for medical attention.
Logan: I don't need medical attention.
Prof. Charles Francis Xavier: Yes, of course.

Prof. Charles Francis Xavier: You can stay here. We can protect you from Magneto.
Wolverine: What's a Magneto?
