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.

Rogue's Boyfriend: Won't it be kinda cold?
Rogue: Well, that's the point, stupid, otherwise it wouldn't be an adventure!

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

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.

Mutants are not the ones mankind should fear.

Dr. Jean Grey

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?

Wolverine: Magneto's right: there is a war coming. Are you sure you're on the right side?
Storm: At least I've chosen a side.

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

Wolverine: It's me!
Cyclops: Prove it!
Wolverine: You're a dick.
Cyclops: Okay.
