Magneto: Why not come out where I can see you, Charles?
Prof. Charles Francis Xavier: What do you want her for?
Magneto: Can't you read my mind? What now? Save the girl? You'll have to kill me, Charles. And what will that accomplish? Let them pass that law and they'll have you in chains with a number burned into your forehead.
Prof. Charles Francis Xavier: It won't be that way.
Magneto: Then kill me and find out. Then release me. Fine!

Wolverine: That tickles.
Dr. Jean Grey: Hey.
Wolverine: Hey.
Dr. Jean Grey: How are you feeling.
Wolverine: Fantastic.

Toad has a wicked tongue, Senator. Just like you.

Magneto

Dr. Jean Grey: I saw Senator Kelly.
Magneto: So, the senator survived the fall, and the swim to shore. He's become more powerful than I imagined.
Dr. Jean Grey: He's dead. Just like all those people out there will be.
Storm: It's true. I watched him die.
Magneto: Are you sure you saw what you saw?

Mankind is not evil, just... uninformed.

Prof. Charles Francis Xavier

[about Mystique]
Wolverine: She's good.
Magneto: You have no idea.

Princess Isabelle: The king desires peace.
William Wallace: Longshanks desires peace?
Princess Isabelle: He declares it to me, I swear it. He proposes that you withdraw your attack. In return he grants you title, estates, and this chest of gold which I am to pay to you personally.
William Wallace: A lordship and titles. Gold. That I should become Judas?
Princess Isabelle: Peace is made in such ways.
William Wallace: Slaves are made in such ways. The last time Longshanks spoke of peace I was a boy. And many Scottish nobles, who would not be slaves, were lured by him under a flag of truce to a barn, where he had them hanged. I was very young, but I remember Longshanks' notion of peace.

Nightcrawler: You know, outside the circus, most people were afraid of me. But I didn't hate them. I pitied them. Do you know why? Because most people will never know anything beyond what they see with their own two eyes.
Storm: Well, I gave up on pity a long time ago.
Nightcrawler: Someone so beautiful should not be so angry.
Storm: Sometimes anger can help you survive.
Nightcrawler: So can faith

Rogue: Logan, come on. Let's go.
Wolverine: Go, I'll be fine!
Rogue: But we won't.

Wolverine: Who's this guy?
Rogue: This is Bobby, he's my...
Bobby: I'm her boyfriend.
[shakes Logan's hand and freezes it]
Bobby: Call me Iceman.
Wolverine: Boyfriend? So how do you guys...?
Bobby: Well, we're still working on that.

Where are we going?

It was at that time that I thought about Thomas Jefferson writing that Declaration of Independence. Him saying that we have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. And I thought about how he knew to put the 'pursuit' in there, like no one can actually have happiness. We can only pursue it.
