Prof. Charles 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, normally taking thousands and thousands of years. But every few hundred millennia, evolution leaps forward.

Rogue: When they come out, does it hurt?
Logan: Every time.
Logan: You’re in my school for the gifted. For mutants. You’ll be safe here from Magneto.

Prof. Charles Xavier: Logan, my tolerance for your smoking in the mansion notwithstanding, continue smoking that in here, and you’ll spend the rest of your days under the belief that you’re a six-year-old girl.

Prof. Charles Xavier: I’d have Jean braid your hair.
Logan: Got any beer?
Bobby Drake: This is a school.
Logan: So that’s a no?
Bobby Drake: Yeah, that’s a no.

Nightcrawler: You know, outside of 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.

Cop: Put the knives down!
Logan: I can’t.

Nightcrawler: Then why not stay in disguise all the time, you know? Look like everyone else?
Mystique: Because we shouldn’t have to.
X-Men: The Last Stand (2006)
Prof. Charles Xavier: When an individual acquires great power, the use or misuse of that power is everything. Will it be for the greater good? Or will it be used for personal, or for destructive ends? Now this is a question we must all ask ourselves. Why? Because we are mutants.
Bobby Drake: Well, you don’t seem fine. You seem like you’re avoiding me. I mean, something’s wrong.
Rogue: What’s wrong is I can’t touch my boyfriend without killing him. Other than that, I’m wonderful.
Bobby Drake: Hey. I don’t think that’s fair. Have I ever put any pressure on you?
Rogue: You’re a guy, Bobby. Your mind’s only on one thing.
Mutant Theatre Organizer: This cure is voluntary. Nobody’s talking about extermination.
Magneto: No one ever talks about it. They just do it. And you go on with your lives, ignoring the signs all around you. And then, one day, when the air is still, and the night has fallen, they come for you.
Mutant Theatre Organizer: Excuse me, but…
Magneto: It’s only then you realize, while you were talking about organizing and committees, the extermination has already begun.
Magneto: Make no mistake, my brothers. They will draw first blood. They will force their cure upon us. The only question is, will you join my brotherhood and fight, or wait for the inevitable genocide? Who will you stand with, the humans, or us?
Callisto: If you’re so proud of being a mutant, where’s your mark?
Magneto: I have been marked once, my dear, and let me assure you, no needle shall ever touch my skin again.
Logan: [referring to Jean] What have you done to her?
Prof. Charles Xavier: Logan, you have to understand…
Logan: You’re talking about a person’s mind here, about Jean.
Prof. Charles Xavier: She has to be controlled.
Logan: Control? You know, sometimes when you cage the beast, the beast gets angry.
Logan: It’ll be alright. We can help you. Okay? The professor can help. He can fix it.
Jean Grey: I don’t want to fix it!
Storm: We live in an age of darkness. A world full of fear, hate, and intolerance. But in every age, there are those who fight against it. Charles Xavier was born into a world divided, a world he tried to heal. A mission he never saw accomplished. It seems the destiny of great men to see their goals unfulfilled. Charles was more than a leader, more than a teacher. He was a friend. When we were afraid, he gave us strength. And when we were alone, he gave us a family. He may be gone, but his teachings live on through us, his students. Wherever we may go, we must carry on his vision. And that’s a vision of a world united.
Rogue: You don’t know what it’s like to be afraid of your powers, to be afraid to get close to anybody.
Logan: Yeah, I do.
Rogue: I want to be able to touch people, Logan. A hug, a handshake, a kiss.
Logan: I hope you’re not doing this for some boy.
Logan: Look, if you want to go, then go. Just be sure it’s what you want.
Rogue: Shouldn’t you be telling me to stay? To go upstairs and unpack?
Logan: I’m not your father. I’m your friend.
X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009)
Stryker: The warden tells me that your sentence was carried out by a firing squad at ten hundred hours. How did that go?
Logan: It tickled.
Wade Wilson: You know, I love this weapon more than any other thing in the whole wide world. Do you want to know why?
Victor Creed: No.
Wade Wilson: It’s memorable. Sure, it’s a little bulky, tough to get on a plane. You whip out a couple of swords at your ex-girlfriend’s wedding, they will never, ever forget it.
Victor Creed: That’s funny, Wade. I think you confuse me with someone who gives a s**t.
Wade Wilson: Great. Stuck in an elevator with five guys on a high-protein diet.
Stryker: Oh, Wade.
Wade Wilson: Dreams really do come true.
Wade Wilson: You look really nice today. It’s the green. It brings out the seriousness in your eyes.
Logan: Oh, my God. Do you ever shut up, pal?
Wade Wilson: No. Not when I’m awake.
Wade Wilson: Okay. People are dead.
Stryker: If you didn’t have that mouth on you, Wade, you’d be the perfect soldier.
Stryker: Your country needs you.
Logan: I’m Canadian.
Kayla Silverfox: You’re not an animal, Logan. What you have is a gift.
Logan: A gift. You can return a gift.
Logan: Are you Remy LeBeau?
Remy LeBeau: Do I owe you money?
Remy LeBeau: Then Remy LeBeau I am.
Stryker: Kayla’s mutation is tactohypnosis. She can influence people as long as she touches them. Quite a useful tool in a seduction. It was never real, my friend.
Logan: It was real for me.
Stryker: I told you if you came down this road, you wouldn’t like what you found.
Logan: [to Kayla] That story you told me, about a man who gets flowers for the moon. I had it backwards. I thought you were the moon, and I was your wolverine. But you’re the trickster, aren’t you? I’m just the fool who got played. The worst part of it is, I should have known. But I ignored my instincts. I ignored what I really am. But that won’t ever happen again.
Victor Creed: We’re done.
Logan: We can never be done, Jimmy. We’re brothers, and brothers look out for each other.
Waitress: [in Japanese] Do you drinking to forget?
Logan: No. I’m drinking to remember.
X-Men: First Class (2011)
Erik Lehnsherr: What brings you to Argentina?
Pig Farmer: The climate. I’m a pig farmer.
Tailor: Tailor. Since I was a boy. My father made the finest suits in Dusseldorf.
Erik Lehnsherr: My parents were from Dusseldorf.
Tailor: What was their name?
Erik Lehnsherr: They didn’t have a name. It was taken away from them, by pig farmers, and tailors.
[reading the inscription on the pig farmer’s knife]
Erik Lehnsherr: “Blood and Honor.” Which would you care to shed first?
Pig Farmer: We were under orders.
Erik Lehnsherr: Blood then.
[stabs the knife into the pig farmer’s hand]
Pig Farmer: Who, what are you?
Erik Lehnsherr: Let’s just say I’m Frankenstein’s monster. And I’m looking for my creator.
Hank McCoy: Are you sure we can’t shave your head?
Charles Xavier: Don’t touch my hair.
Erik Lehnsherr: Excuse me, I’m Erik Lehnsherr.
Charles Xavier: Charles Xavier.
Logan: Go f*** yourself.
Erik Lehnsherr: [to Raven] If you’re using half your concentration to look normal, then you’re only half paying attention to whatever else you’re doing. Just pointing out something that could save your life.
Erik Lehnsherr: [to Raven] You want society to accept you, but you can’t even accept yourself.
Charles Xavier: You know, I believe that true focus lies somewhere between rage and serenity.
Charles Xavier: [to Erik] There’s so much more to you than you know. Not just pain and anger. There’s good too. I felt it. When you can access all of that, you’ll possess a power no one can match. Not even me.
Raven: Society should aspire to be more like us. Mutant and proud.
Charles Xavier: Listen to me very carefully, my friend. Killing Shaw will not bring you peace.
Erik Lehnsherr: Peace was never an option.
Charles Xavier: Erik, you said yourself, we’re the better men. This is the time to prove it. There are thousands of men on those ships. Good, honest, innocent men! They’re just following orders.
Erik Lehnsherr: I’ve been at the mercy of men just following orders. Never again!
Erik Lehnsherr: Us turning on each other. It’s what they want. I tried to warn you, Charles. I want you by my side. We’re brothers, you and I. All of us, together. Protecting each other. We want the same thing.
Charles Xavier: My friend. I’m sorry, but we do not.
The Wolverine (2013)
Yukio: I saw you die.
Yukio: I saw you die.
Logan: What? Just now?
Yukio: A while ago. It’s not like I get a complete picture, more like looking through a keyhole. But I’m always right. All I can see is one part of a person’s life, their death. And I saw yours.
Logan: Really? You’re going to try talk tough standing there in your red underwear? You have ten words, ten words, to explain to me, why you, the Minister of Justice, would want your fiancée killed by the Yakuza. Now, if I don’t like what you say, you’re going through that window.
Noburo: You don’t have the faintest idea of what’s going…
[Logan punches him]
Logan: How many words was that?
Logan: Nine. You have one word left.
[as Logan is about throw him off the balcony]
Noburo: Wait! No! You wanted the truth! I told you the truth!
[Logan throws him of the balcony]
Logan: I didn’t like it.
[after Logan throws Noburo off the balcony]
Yukio: How did you know there’s a pool down there?
Logan: I didn’t.
Shingen: What are you?
Viper: A chemist, a nihilist, a capitalist. A mutation.
[licks a pen wit her snake like tongue]
Viper: A viper.
[she stabs Shingen with the pen and poisons him]
Shingen: What kind of monster are you?
Logan: The Wolverine.
[as he’s about to kill Yashida]
Logan: You asked me to come to say goodbye. Sayonara.
Logan: What do you want?
Magneto: There are dark forces, Wolverine. Human forces building a weapon that could bring about the end of our kind. What do I want? I want your help.
Logan: Why would I trust you?
Magneto: You wouldn’t.
Prof. Charles Xavier: Hello, Logan.
Logan: How is this possible?
Prof. Charles Xavier: As I told you a long time ago, you’re not the only with gifts.
X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)
Professor X: The future, a dark, desolate world. A world of war, suffering, loss, on both sides. Mutants and the humans who dared to help them, fighting an enemy we cannot defeat. Are we destined down this path? Destined to destroy ourselves, like so many species before us? Or can we evolve fast enough to change ourselves, change our fate? Is the future truly set?
Logan: Look, kid, you and I are going to be good friends.
[he punches Hank in the face]
Logan: You just don’t know it yet.
Charles Xavier: I sent you from the future?
Charles Xavier: Pi** off.
Charles Xavier: [to Logan] You know, I think I do remember you now. Yeah. Tall, angry fellow
with the contentious hair. We came to you a long time ago, seeking your help. And I’m going to say to you what you said to us then. F*** off.
Peter Maximoff: You take karate? You know karate, man?
Erik Lehnsherr: I don’t know karate. But I know crazy.
Logan: [to Erik] So you were always an a**hole.
Professor X: It’s not their pain you’re afraid of. It’s yours, Charles. And as frightening as it may be, that pain will make you stronger. If you allow yourself to feel it, embrace it, it will make you more powerful than you ever imagined. It’s the greatest gift we have, to bear their pain without breaking. And it’s born from the most human power, hope. Please, Charles, we need you to hope again.
Magneto: All those years wasted fighting each other, Charles. To have a precious few of them back.
Charles Xavier: The past, a new and uncertain world. A world of endless possibilities and infinite outcomes. Countless choices define our fate. Each choice, each moment, a ripple in the river of time. Enough ripples, and you change the tide. For the future is never truly set.
Deadpool: Oh, hello. I know, right? Whose balls did I have to fondle to get my very own movie? I can’t tell you, but it does rhyme with “Polverine”.
[in an Australian accent]
Deadpool: And let me tell you, he’s got a nice pair of smooth criminals down under.
Colossus: Let us go talk to the Professor.
Deadpool: McAvoy or Stewart? These timelines are so confusing.

X-Men: Apocalypse (2016)
Erik Lensherr: What about the rest of the world? Doesn’t it ever wake you up in the middle of the night? The feeling that one day they’ll come for you and your children?
Charles Xavier: It does indeed.
Erik Lensherr: What do you do when you wake up to that?
Charles Xavier: I feel a great swell of pity for the poor soul that comes to my school looking for trouble.
Peter Maximoff: You know, for a guy who moves as fast as me, I always seem to be too late.
[when Erik sees Apocalypse for the first time]
Erik Lensherr: Who the f*** are you?
Ms. Maximoff: You’re going after him, aren’t you?
Peter Maximoff: You wanted me to get out of the house more, right?
Ms. Maximoff: I can’t stop you. Nobody can. But trust me, this won’t end well. Nothing does, with him.
Peter Maximoff: I’m not afraid of him.
Ms. Maximoff: You should be.
Charles Xavier: I told you from the moment I met you, there is more to you, Erik. There is good in you too.

Peter Maximoff: Him and my mom, they did it.
Raven: No, I know. But are you sure?
Jean Grey: [to Raven] Seeing you that day on TV changed my life.
Kurt Wagner: Mine too.
Peter Maximoff: Mine too. I mean, I still live in my mom’s basement. But, you know, everything else is, well, it’s pretty much the same. I’m a total loser.
Raven: I know you think you’ve lost everything, but you haven’t. You have me. You have Charles. You have more family than you know. You never had the chance to save your family before, but you do now. That’s what I’ve come here to tell you.

Erik Lensherr: You’re psychic, Charles. You can convince me to do anything.
Charles Xavier: Goodbye, old friend.
Erik Lensherr: Good luck, Professor.
Raven: Forget everything you think you know. Whatever lessons you learned in school. Whatever your parents taught you. None of that matters! You’re not kids anymore. You’re not students. You’re X-Men.
Charles: Two days on the road, only one meal, and hardly any sleep. She’s eleven, I’m f***ing ninety.
Laura: You are dying. You want to die.

Deadpool 2 (2018)
Blind Al: Listen to the pain. It’s both history teacher and fortune teller. Pain teaches us who we are, Wade. Sometimes it’s so bad we feel like we’re dying, but we can’t really live until we die a little, can we?
Deadpool: Look. I can’t protect you. With this collar on, my superpower is just unbridled cancer. Give me a bow and arrow, I’m basically Hawkeye. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got tumors to grow. Vanessa awaits.

The New Mutants (2020)
Dr. Reyes: Did you know baby rattlesnakes are more dangerous than adult ones? They haven’t learned how to control how much venom they secrete. Even the mutants we call heroes today, when they first got their powers, chances are they hurt someone. That’s why new mutants are dangerous.
