Season 1


Strategy X [1.01]

[After Toad, blown into the mansion by Storm's powers, meets Nightcrawler for the first time.]
Toad: Whoa! What are you, some kind of ratty plush toy?
Nightcrawler: The name's Nightcrawler, and at least I don't reek like unwashed lederhosen.
Toad: You blue-furred freak!

[As Toad chases Nightcrawler through the mansion, the former hurling insults at the latter.]
Nightcrawler: As you say in America, "neener, neener, neener!"
Toad: That ain't gonna help you, boy!
Nightcrawler: You're so slow, you couldn't catch flies off a windshield!
Toad: Fight like a man!

Professor Xavier: Yes. The boy is, indeed, gifted. He could be one of us.
Storm: Sometimes, Professor, I think your good heart blinds even you from the truth.
[Nightcrawler suddenly leaps down the hall, chased by Toad]
Toad: I'm gonna rip that pointy tail off, ya fuzzy gecko!

Toad: [chasing Nightcrawler] Come here, Wookiee boy! Come on, come over here, don't make me come up there, don't make me, oh, now you're starting to tick me off...

Professor Xavier: Todd Tolansky does indeed have the gift of the X-gene. He is welcome to join us, if he so desires.
Toad: [still mad at Kurt] The only thing I desire is blue-boy's fuzzy head!

Wolverine: I came back 'cause I thought I smelled trouble brewing. [glances at Toad] Of course, it could've just been stink-boy there...
Professor Xavier: I wish it was. Welcome home, old friend. We've missed you.

Nightcrawler: [checking out the Blackbird] Sehr gut! Is it yours? Please tell me you get to fly it.
Cyclops: It's ours. If you stick around long enough, I'll teach you how to pilot this bad boy.
Nightcrawler: But...I almost got you guys killed a few minutes ago.
Cyclops: Yeah... don't do that again. But look, we all mess up sometimes; I know I do. That's why we're all here: to learn not to make mistakes like that. That's why we'd like you to stay.
Nightcrawler: And you don't mind... the way I look?
Cyclops: [Laughs] Dude, just don't hassle me about my shades and we'll call it even.
Nightcrawler: We have a deal, then.
Cyclops: Welcome to the team. Come on, I'll show you where they hide the sodas.

The X-Impulse [1.02]

Kitty: No, you're just like some freak! Leave me alone!
[Kitty runs away from Avalanche]
Avalanche: You can run, but you can't hide. Cause I'm gonna rock your world!

Sabretooth: One shall fall by the other's hand. It's our destiny, and we can't change it.
Wolverine: I didn't know you went for that philosophy mumbo-jumbo!
Cyclops: [to Sabretooth] Hey, hairball! I got your destiny right here!

[Wolverine, Cyclops and Nightcrawler beat Sabretooth.]
Nightcrawler: Heh! We showed him. We are the X-Men!
Wolverine: I don't fight your battles. So don't fight mine. [storms off]
Nightcrawler: [to Cyclops] Ahh, he loves us.
Cyclops: Oh yeah, big time.

Kitty's Father: Kitty, I pushed you to this, I know. I wanted to pretend nothing was wrong. I'm not perfect. I'm learning just like you are.
Kitty: Daddy?
Avalanche: Forget them. Come on, I'm bringing this place down!
Jean Grey: You called your gift a curse. If you go with him, I guarantee it will be.

Rogue Recruit [1.03]

Wolverine: Hey, when I give a demo, I give a demo.
Cyclops: A demo, as in "demolish", or "demonstration"?

Wolverine: The vents were easily breached; gonna have to fix that. Maybe electrify them, or install poison gas sprayers.
Storm: Wolverine...
Wolverine: Alright, alright...knockout gas, then.
Shadowcat: [shudders] Is it just me, or is anybody else, like, seriously freaked by all of this? [everyone stares at her] Oh. Right, it's just me? Great.
Nightcrawler: Relax, Kitty; you'll be fine. [he teleports next to her; she gasps] We're right beside you. [he teleports again to the opposite side of her] Popcorn? [Shadowcat screams] Oops. Heh heh, sorry. Next time I'll honk before I 'port.
Shadowcat: Whatever. Look, guys, it's getting late. If it's no biggie, I'm gonna, like, drop out. [she phases through the floor]
Nightcrawler: Ah. She's fully not into the fuzzy dude. Not that I blame her.
Jean Grey: [putting a hand on Nightcrawler's shoulder] Aw, she just needs some time, Kurt. She'll come around.

Cyclops: Nice job, Kurt. You'll make a pilot, yet.
Nightcrawler: Thanks!
[Kurt starts piloting with his feet.]
Cyclops: ...or maybe not.

Shadowcat: Scott seems so, like, together! So cool and he's kinda cute.
Jean Grey: Cute?! Stiff - maybe, exacting - definitely, but... hmm... [looks at Scott] You know, from a certain angle...

Nightcrawler: Was? Got a scent?
Wolverine: Yeah... I smell fear.

Wolverine: [to Kurt, about Kitty] ... and keep an eye on the half-pint here.
Shadowcat: Hey!

Professor Xavier: Wolverine, it's Nightcrawler. The Rogue has his mind and his abilities.
Wolverine: This is my fault. I should never have left the little squirrel in charge!

[After Rogue accidentally knocks Kurt out and flees the scene, leaving Shadowcat alone with him.]
Shadowcat: Say something, Kurt! Please! Tease me, scare me, anything! Please...don't be dead... Come on, Kitty... okay, what would Wolverine do? I mean, besides dice up, like, half the landscape...

Nightcrawler: [finally wakes up and sees the destruction around him]... Looks like I missed quite a party...
Shadowcat: Kurt! You're alright! [hugs him] Easy, you fuzzy elf. Everything is going to be just fine.
Cyclops: [whispering] "Fuzzy elf"?

Cody: [about talking to Rogue] I'm just, you know, picking my moment. Taking it slow.
Ty: Cody, I've seen glaciers move faster.

Storm: You look a little flush and the forecast isn't good.
[blows ice on him]
Logan: Now that was cold.

Mutant Crush [1.04]

[After Blob, lost on his first day in Bayville high, grabs Duncan.]
Blob: Hey, you! Where am I supposed to be?
Duncan: I don't know. How about a sideshow?

[Cyclops and Rogue are sitting together rehearsing their script from Henry VIII.]
Cyclops: Do you like me, Kate?
Rogue: Pardonnez moi? I cannot tell what is "like me".
Cyclops: An angel is like you, Kate, and you are like an angel.
Rogue: The girls are right; you are a charmer.
Cyclops: Look, I'm just practicing the lines, okay?
Rogue: Yeah, I know, it's just that sometimes I wish...
Scott: Yeah, wish what?
Rogue: Wish I could get close to somebody, but you know what happens when I do!

Wolverine: That's it half-pint, keep the ball away from the elf.

[After Nightcrawler teleports between Cyclops and Rogue in the middle of rehearsal.]
Nightcrawler: Whoa! Er... Tender moment here? Sorry to interrupt.
Rogue: I swear, he's like a... an annoying little brother! [the joke is that Kurt, technically, is Rogue's brother]
Cyclops: What's the problem?
Nightcrawler: Jean’s been napped!
Cyclops: [shocked and angry] What?!

Cyclops: Teleporter to maximum, Mr. Wagner.
Nightcrawler: Aye, Captain!
Cyclops: Engage.

Rogue: Leave her alone, ya yahoo!
Blob: Whatcha gonna do to me? Make me wear bad makeup?
Rogue: Didn't Mystique tell you what my power is?
Blob: No - 'cause I don't care!
[Rogue pulls off her glove and grabs Blob's arm.]
Rogue: My power is your power, and I can take more than one!
[Rogue tosses Blob using his strength, and blasts him further back with Cyclops' beam. He lands in a pile of junk, but gets up again quickly.]
Blob: I got too much power, even for you! You can't hurt me! I'm the Blob!
Rogue: Nah, you're just garbage that wanted a date! Now tell you what: I'm taking you out!

Speed and Spyke [1.05]

Storm: Evan, are you alright? I've been concerned about you lately. You know, about the things we've discussed before?
Spyke: Yeah, yeah, no problem Auntie O', everything's cool.
Storm: Evan, I saw what happened to you out there tonight; when you fell.
Spyke: Hey, it's no big deal; I got it under control. Ah... ATCHOO! [the sneeze causes him to spray bone spikes all over the locker room, narrowly missing Storm]
Storm: [Unfazed] Bless you.
Spyke: [Sniffs] Busted, huh?
Storm: Big time.

Wolverine: [after Nightcrawler attempts to get pancakes] ELF! [sighs] How many times do I gotta tell ya? Ask and it'll get passed to ya.
Nightcrawler: Sorry. I didn't want to interupt you. [teleports back in his chair]
Wolverine: That's better. Now mind your manners. [passes the pancakes to Nightcrawler]

Nightcrawler: I love the smell of bacon in the morning.

Scott: It's really not so bad, Mrs. Daniels. Having special powers can be pretty cool sometimes.
Evan: Oh yeah! I'll tell you what, Shades! Let's see what you've got that's so cool!
Mrs. Daniels: Evan!
Evan: Sorry, Mom.
Jean: No really, it's okay. It's just that Scott's powers aren't really what you'd call 'indoor-friendly'.
Evan: Okay, whatever. Look, man. I like it right here and I'm not going to some home for freaks! Now if you'll excuse me, I've got some school stuff to take care of. [goes upstairs]
Mrs. Daniels: Evan!
Jean: Well, that went well!
Scott: Yeah. And I thought we were really making a connection there.
Mr. Daniels: I apologize for my son, Mr. Summers. He's obviously dealing with a lot right now. I'll talk with him.
Jean: [using her power] Hey! He's going out the window.
[The group sees Evan going off on his skateboard]
Scott: We've really got to work on our sales pitch!

Kitty: Eww! Professor! Kurt is, like, totally getting fur in the pool!
Kurt: I am not!

Middleverse [1.06]

Cyclops: Go to Duncan Matthews' party? I don't think so. Matthews is a jerk.
Shadowcat: No he's not. I'd go.
Cyclops: No freshmen allowed.
Shadowcat: Oh. Matthews is a jerk.

Nightcrawler: Hey, chicks dig the fuzzy dude! [to Shadowcat, suggestively] Right?
Shadowcat: I'm, like, so out of here. Later.
Nightcrawler: Oh yeah, she can't resist.

Cyclops: Hey! Watch the tail! [jerks Kurt off of table] Now, see? That's exactly what I'm talking about-
Nightcrawler: You pulled my tail, man!
Cyclops: Grow up, Kurt!
Nightcrawler: Hey, lighten up, dude!
Cyclops: You're always goofing around!
Nightcrawler: And you're seriously cramping my style!
Cyclops: Listen!
Nightcrawler: No, you listen! There's a sound I want you to hear, and it's-
[Nightcrawler teleports, leaving Cyclops coughing in a cloud of brimstone.]
Cyclops: [To Jean and Evan] Blew it, didn't I?
Jean Grey: Oh yeah.
Spyke: Totally.

Nightcrawler: I knew I should have paid more attention in computer lab.

Nightcrawler: It's raining furniture!

Nightcrawler: Don't let my looks fool you. I'm a harmless blue fuzzball.

[After Cyclops, Spyke, Jean, and Shadowcat recover Forge's projector.]
Cyclops: Step back. This is going to be messy.
Shadowcat: You know, I could just, like, phase through it and short it out quietly? [Cyclops and Spyke look at her blankly.] Oh, right. Forget I mentioned it. [to Jean] Like, what is it with guys and explosions anyway?

Forge: Man. You do have that rep.

Nightcrawler: I swear, that homie's lingo is so whack.
[about Forge as they wander through Middleverse.]

Lance: Rogue, Mystique sent us to find you. So are you with us or them?
Scott: Mystique? You're working for her?
Rogue: Hey, Summers, you got your friends, I got mine. But this ain't my fight, I'm outta here.

Nightcrawler: So, how far does this middleverse extend?
Forge: Stops just short of the girls locker room, isn't that a burn?

Kurt: [to Rogue] What are you doing here?
Rogue: Hey, look who's talkin'! At least I didn't blow the place up!
Kurt': [seeing a device that she is holding and runs over to take it away from her] Hey, give me that.
Rogue: [struggling with Kurt] Back off, blue boy! Who says YOUR in charge here?!

Lance: You and me got a date, Pretty Kitty. How about a ride on a concrete coaster?
Kitty: Lousy ride, loser!

Random kid: Ahhh! A ghost! Blue and hairy demon! I'm outta here!

Toad:What is this, abuse the Toad day?

Scott: I need to lighten up! [Jean and Kitty gape in shock]
Jean: Oh, not you Scott!
Kitty: [giggles] Check his temperature! [places her hand on his forehead to check his temperature] Mr. Military's gone soft!
Scott: Ok! So we go home, suit up and run a level 3 Danger Room simulation!
Jean: [groans] Scott!
Kitty: [groans] Give us a break!
Nightcrawler: [leans forward] See this is what I mean! Too serious!
Scott: Psych!
Jean/Kitty: [giggle]
Nightcrawler: [smiles] Very nice! There's hope for you yet!
Scott: Tell me about it on the way to Matthew's party!
Kitty: [grumbles] I still can't go! [folds her arms] I'm, like, a freshman!
Scott: [places his arm around her shoulder pulling her in for a hug] You're also one of the X-Men!
Jean: [places her hand on Kitty's shoulder making the scene look like a mom, dad and daughter scene] Don't worry! We'll make it happen!

Turn Of The Rogue [1.07]

Rogue: Scott? Scott? Listen, just hang on, you're gonna be okay. You're gonna be... [looks over edge] Oh man! We're gonna die!
Scott: Thanks for the Pep-Talk, Rogue. Thanks. You saved my life.
Rogue: I owed it to you. Mystique had me pretty mixed up. Her mind's a tortured mess. But I saw enough to know that you're not my enemy. [Sadly] I really thought she cared about me.
Scott: [Groaning] Hey, she probably does. Sometimes, it's really hard to understand adults. They never seem to trust us. [Loses consciousness]
Rogue: [Frantically] Scott- don't pass out. [Voice breaking] Come on. Wake up!
Wolverine: We're moving too slow! Spread a little more sunshine would ya?
Storm: I'm a weather-witch, not a snow plow. I'm doing the best I can.
Rogue: [gasps] It's Mystique!
Professor X: [telepathically] Scott? Scott! I hope you can hear me! We're on our way! Scott! [normally] He's hurt!
Wolverine: Great! How we gonna find him in this white?
Scott: X-Men! Coming!
Rogue: What? They are? Great!
Scott: They can't find us!
Rogue: Figures! Then we'll give em something they can find! Open your eyes, Scott! Now!

Rogue: [To Mystique, as the latter approaches while transformed] Some friendly advice, teach? Don't mess with the Rogue!

Logan: [Approaches Rogue] Where's your allegiance, kid? Us or them?
Rogue: [Shaking and scared out of her wits] If I don't say you, will I get thrown out of this jet?
Logan: [Presses a button that closes the door] Nope, not our style. We've either earned your trust by now or we haven't.
Rogue: [Looks at Storm, who is tending to Scott, then turns back to Logan] You.
Logan: Welcome to the X-Men. [Holds out his hand. Rogue takes it]

Jean: Which one of your guys has been putting on weight? I can hardly hold you!
Cyclops: It's Nightcrawler. Burgers seven days a week will do that to a fella.
Nightcrawler: Ah, the breakfast of mutants.

Rogue: No trophies for second place.
Scott: How'd a southern gal like you learn to handle a snowmobile?
Rogue: Lets just say I'm full of surprises.

Professor X: Rogue?
Rogue: It's not my place.
Kitty: Sure it is. You're part of the family now.
Evan: Yeah, Girl. Tell us what you think.
Rogue: Well...I think...No. I've learnt that honesty is very important between people you care about. At least it is to me.
Professor X: You're right. All of you. I must apologise for keeping the secret from you. But please understand there are many challenges in your future. Secrets...elements of surprise some you are ready to deal with. Some you are not. In the future I will try to do better knowing which is which.
Scott: Thanks professor. We're all in this together. It's nice to know we've all got something to learn. That's what makes us X-Men.

SpykeCam [1.08]

Evan: [Sabertooth grabs him] We've been expecting you. [Evan pops his spikes] You gotta be sharp if you're gonna mess with the Spyke.
Sabertooth: [drops Spyke goes after Kitty] Then I'll take you!
Kitty': [Kitty phases Creed flies through] Right. I'm so sure! [Sabertooth knocks Kitty into a tree, goes after her again]
Rogue: Back off ugly!
Wolverine: Pickin' on kids, Creed? Big mistake!
Sabertooth: Yeah, Why?
Logan: Cause it really ticks me off!

Evan: Come on, Rogue, get with the program. Shake that thing.
Rogue: Hey, she's got her moves, I got mine.
Kitty: Yeah, girl, you gotta go with it. Y'know, you're like a walkin' zombie or something.
Evan: Hey, listen, Rogue, how 'bout you shed those gloves and give K-girl a tap.
Kitty and Rogue: What? No way!
Evan: Listen to me. Just enough to rip Kitty's moves.
Rogue: It might work. Just concentrate on 'em.
Kitty: Okay, but you better not, like, lay me out.
Rogue: [touches her] That was, like, pretty icksome! Aw, am I talking like her?

Rogue: [after touching Sabertooth and almost turning into a werewolf] Aw... and I just shaved my legs last night!
Logan: Nice. The finishing touch. [to Kitty] And don't give me them puppy dog eyes, half-pint. You're grounded and so are the rest of you!
Evan' For how long?
Logan: [sighs] I don't know, till She-Wolf there gets a haircut anyway.

Rogue: Just when I thought you could not possibly get more pathetic.
Kitty: At least I've got a hope of getting cast. Unlike you.
Rogue: Think about it. I was made for this play. [catches Spyke filming them] Hey! What are you playin' at, Porcupine? I better not see my face on that tape, or they're gonna be calling you Spyke-less.

Sabertooth: [about Evan, Kitty and Rogue] Three little piggies all alone, Logan you're making this too easy.

Toad: [To Evan] Style, charisma... Toad's got it all, yo. So start shootin', already.

[First line of the episode. Evan looks down at his failed paper]
Evan: Man! Professor Xavier's gonna ground me for the rest of my life!
Teacher: Mr. Daniels, could we talk for a moment, please? Admittedly, I asked for a report on the Star Wars programme. However, I wasn't talking about the movie.
Evan: [weakly] But I like movies.
Teacher: That's fine, but I was expecting a report on the National Space Defense System.
Evan: Yeah, I kinda figured that out by my grade. Look, man. Is there anything I can do to make this up? Extra credit? Anything?
Teacher: Hmmm...Perhaps there is something. [takes a video camera out of his desk]
Evan: Woah! A digicam!
'Teacher: You know, Evan, current events can mean a lot of things to people your age. How would you like to do a film report?
Evan: For real?
Teacher: You've got it. Project's due at the end of the week. I suggest you get started.

Survival of the Fittest [1.09]

Blob: "Group Leader". "Scholastic achievement". That should've been me!
Quicksilver: You can't even spell 'scholastic achievement', Blob.
Blob: No, but I can spell "doomed"! Which is what that goody-two shoes gang is when I get them alone in the woods!
Toad: I can hear it now. [imitates newsreader] "Search and rescue efforts abandoned for missing teens. No traces found".
Avalanche: We'll hit them where it hurts most. In public. In front of everyone!

Quicksilver: [about Blob] If he slips, we're history! Death by blubberbomb!
Avalanche: Fastest way to the top's a straight line, Pietro.

Juggernaut: You can't stop the Juggernaut!
Wolverine: Forgive me for trying, bub!

[The X-Men and the Brotherhood have defeated Juggernaut by working together]
Mystique: Now there's something you won't see every day.
Professor X: I agree. And that's a shame.

Blob: That loser Scott should've lost, and you know it.
Pietro: Yeah. Just because he slipped into the bath, the guy went ballistic.
Nightcrawler: Slipped?! More like avalanched!

[After Jean saves Evan from falling off the cliff]
Evan: Woah,... I don't recommend that.

Pietro: Cake walk. Our team can take a sauna. I'll get it myself.
Kurt: Not if I beat you there.

Lance: Better say your farewells 'Sumner', Cause you guys aren't coming back.
Scott: Oh, you got something in mind 'Rock Tumbler', cause I...
Jean: Scott! What do you think you're doing?
Scott: What?! Nothing! I'm just fed up with those delinquents getting away with everything while we're stuck playing by the rules!
Lance: Hey! We don't need our powers to beat you!
Scott: Aw, fine then. We'll all play it straight and you know what? We'll wave to you from the top!
Jean: Good. That's the deal. We're all competing fair; no powers, and I personally am very proud....
[Scott pulls her away]
Scott: Come on, Jean!

Scott: It felt kinda right, didn't it?
Jean: What?
Scott: Us and them fighting alongside? Why can't they just stop drawing battlelines in the first place?
Jean: Well, it's like what Logan said, "You can't control the will of others."
Scott: Well, they'll come around. And you can be their conscience. You're pretty good at it.
Jean: [playfully pushes him] Oh... shut up... [giggles a little bit]... even good guys need a nudge once in a while.
Scott: Jean, whenever you think I need it, nudge away.

Jean: Yeah, well, Scott's cool. He'll handle it like a group leader should.
[Scott blows Lance out of his boat with his powers]
Jean: Or not.

Jean: Yeah, at least he gave us a choice. Survival training here or with Wolverine.
Rogue: Some choice.

Logan: I still say you should have let me handle their survival training.
Xavier: I gave them that choice, Logan. They felt they had a better chance of surviving the camp.

Toad: [about Scott] He stole that first place ribbon!
Rogue: You want that ribbon so bad? I'll pin it to your forehead.

Kitty: [dropping onto her bag] We're going to die out here.
Evan: What about me? I'm a city kid.
Rogue: [picking up her stuff] I'm going AWOL, anyone know how to hotwire a school bus?

Shadowed Past [1.10]

[Professor Xavier is visiting Mystique concerning a recent, disturbing discovery]
Professor X: You've been carrying a terrible burden for many years, Mystique. Rogue's recent contact with you seems to have given her some of your darker memories; nightmares about a very unfortunate incident involving an infant.
Mystique: You're fishing. You know nothing.
Professor X: I know about your relationship with the boy, Mystique. What I don't know is what Magneto did to him. Why did you run that night?
Mystique: [Gets up from the desk and walks to the bookcase] Dear, dear Charles. How incredibly frustrating for you; to realize that that amazing mind of yours knows so very little, really.
Professor X: What were you two up to in that dreary castle? Was it worth the loss of your son?
[Mystique drops her book in shock, flooded by memories of what happened that night]
Mystique: Get out! Get out now!
[Xavier turns to go, then stops at the door.]
Professor X: Just in case you're curious: he turned out to be a very fine lad. [Leaves]

Grim Reminder [1.11]

Shadowcat: [writing in letter] Finding a place to be alone around here is really a matter of timing. Sometimes you have to settle, like when Mr. Logan's around, but that's okay, because he doesn't want to talk to anybody.
[Logan turns to see Kitty staring him.]
Wolverine: What's the matter, half-pint? Am I reading too loudly for ya?
Shadowcat: Ah, no, just enjoying how quiet it is.
[The rest of the X-Men burst in to eat breakfast, Evan pouring himself some juice, Scott turning on the TV, Rogue taking a bite out of a pastry, and Evan scooping some egg into his plate.]

[Kurt & Kitty find that the plane they hid in is actually flying away.]
Shadowcat: Can you transport us to the ground?
Nightcrawler: Yeah, right. Like, picture this: bumpety, bumpety, bumpety, bumpety, SPLAT! Too high up and WAY too fast!

[The X-Jet is parked near the mountain. As Logan walks away from it, Kitty, having changed into her X-Men uniform, phases through the bottom of the jet, crouches down, and raises an eyebrow while watching him. She gets up and walks. Kurt, having also changed into his X-Men uniform, teleports beside Kitty.]
Shadowcat: Did you get into the cockpit?
Nightcrawler: Yeah, but something's jamming the transmitter way out here. I couldn't reach the Institute.
Shadowcat: [Sighs] Looks like we're on our own then.
[Kurt shrugs before he and Kitty follow Logan.]

Nightcrawler: [facing off with Sabretooth] Touch me, and you'll find yourself transported two miles into the woods!
Sabretooth: Then that's where you'll fall!

Wolverine: You caged the wrong animal, bub!
Scientist: Stop! This place is going to blow!
Wolverine: Let it! Kitty, leave!
Shadowcat: Not without you! [Nightcrawler teleports next to her and grabs her wrist]
Nightcrawler: No argument this time! [he and Shadowcat both teleport out of the labratory; Sabretooth appears behind Wolverine]
Wolverine: Project Weapon X has been terminated!

[Kurt is blocking everyone from going into the dining room, where Kitty is inside typing a letter on her laptop.]
Nightcrawler: Just relax. Give her a minute. Nobody's gonna starve to death.
[Kitty is typing the letter on her laptop.]
Shadowcat: [Voice-over] So, like I said this morning, it's just been another normal day here at the Xavier Institute. Funny. I've been complaining about not having enough time alone, right? But I think I, like, miss bumping into everyone. It's just part of the deal, when you're part of a family.

The Cauldron - Part 1 [1.12]


The Cauldron - Part 2 [1.13]

Professor X: [to Scott] Mutants shouldn't be divided. But we didn't draw the line, Magneto did, and it's still there. You just crossed over it.

Season 2


Growing Pains [2.01]

[About the New Mutants]
Wolverine: So those are the new recruits? Looks like we got our hands full.
Professor X: Yes, a spirited bunch, but good kids. However, it's going to be difficult to keep things quiet, and to maintain our anonymity.
Wolverine: Not to mention our buildings. We're definately going to need more instructors. And maybe a couple of tanks.

[The Brotherhood are standing off to the side at a school assembly]
Toad: Man, this bums, yo. Even the flies here think they're better than us.
Blob: Yeah. I don't even know what we're doing at school anyway.
Quicksilver: But we do know what Lance is doing here. He'd like to get a certain Kitty stuck in a tree. K-I-S-S-I....
[Quicksilver speeds away as Lance tries to hit him, causing him to hit Toad instead]

Rogue: I'm about to feel really big and stupid, if you know what I mean.
[toward Blob, as she prepares to absorb his power.]

Power Surge [2.02]

Note: Jean's mental abilities of telepathy and telekinesis being drastically augmented to tremendously incalculable power levels is foreshadowing the inevitable emergence of the almighty Phoenix Force entity lying within her subconscious mind.

Nightcrawler: What is going on up there?
Shadowcat: Yeah, is Jean all right?
Charles: No, she's not. Her powers are evolving too rapidly for her too control.

Bada-Bing Bada-Boom! [2.03]

[Boom-Boom is selected first for the simulated cliff rescue operation, with Nightcrawler as the victim.]
Boom-Boom: Yeah! Look out below! Boom-Boom's bombing in!
Nightcrawler: I'm going to die...
[Boom-Boom is lowered to Nightcrawler's position.]
Boom-Boom: Hey, cutie!
Nightcrawler: Hi. I have to know: are you insane?

[Boom-Boom carelessly sweeps Nightcrawler into the stretcher with her foot.]
Nightcrawler: Ow! I'm an injured victim, not a log!
Boom-Boom: Nightcrawler", huh? That name's just not working for you, I'm sorry. Whoa! How about, "Wild Blue Yonder Boy"?
Nightcrawler: You are insane.

Nightcrawler: Aha! You forgot to strap me in! Ten points off! [to Boom-Boom, after he pretends to fall off the stretcher]

Fun and Games [2.04]


The Beast of Bayville [2.05]

[Dr. Hank McCoy is suffering a fit in the school bathroom. He is reciting Shakespeare to try and soothe himself.]
Hank McCoy: For... in that sleep of... death... what dreams may come when- argh!- we have shuffled off this mortal- coil... ARGH-MUST give us pause! Hnn-THERE'S... the respect that makes calamity... of SO LONG LIFE! GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH! [Tears the sink off the wall in reflex]

[Jean has telekinetically pinned Beast to the wall.]
Spyke: [Starts walking towards Beast] Show his eyes, and grieve his heart.
Storm: [Lands] Evan, no! Stay back!
Spyke: Come like shadows, so depart. Sleep shall neither night nor day. Hang upon his penthouse lid. He shall live a man forbid. Weary s'nights nine times nine. Shall he dwindle peak and pine.
[Nightcrawler teleports in with Charles.]
Charles: [Puts his hand on Beast's head, telepathically] Hank, listen to me. [Puts his other hand on his own head] You're still there. You know what's happening to you, so take control. You're stronger than the beast. Don't give up.
Spyke: Though his part cannot be lost, yet it shall be tempest tossed.

[Beast is staring at his reflection in the mirror.]
Beast: [Sighs, then turns to Charles and Evan] I still look like a monster.
Charles: But you're now in the one place where that doesn't matter.
Beast: I can still feel it, though, inside.
Charles: And you probably always will.
Beast: The worst part is– the very thing I feared most has happened. My teaching days are over now that I look like this.
Evan: Not so, teach. The prof can outfit you with an image inducer like Kurt's.
Beast: To look like whom? Hank McCoy? He's a wanted fugitive.
Evan: But you can be anybody.
Beast: With a beast inside trying to claw its way out, I just can't risk it.
Charles: What you need, Hank, are students who know your secrets, who have secrets of their own, and who need a man of your compassion to teach them.

Adrift [2.06]

Shadowcat: Hello? Oh, Lance. Hey, I got it, Bobby! Get off the phone! Sorry. So what's going on? Oh. Yeah right, I can totally see us walking around the mall together. What makes you think I wanna- [Nightcrawler clears his throat; Shadowcats looks, gasps, and sees at a muscular Nightcrawler]
Nightcrawler: Hey, Kitty. How's it going?
Shadowcat: Uh, hey let me think about it. I'll call you back. [she hangs up and laughs] What have you done to yourself? [Nightcrawler walks over to her]
Nightcrawler: I've been working out. Can you tell? [his muscular form disappears back to his regular form] Oh bummer. [he walks out of Shadowcat's room; Shadowcat laughs]
Shadowcat: You shouldn't be messing with your image inducer, Kurt.

Beast: [Looking around at all of the melted snow from the mutant snowball fight] Well, so much for our winter wonderland. I can see now that teaching mutants will require entirely different skills.

Nightcrawler: Hey. Welcome back, sailor.
Cyclops [grinning]: Uh, thanks... ma'am.
Nightcrawler: Ma'am? What's that suppose to mean? [he looks in the mirror to see a feminine version of him; he gasps] Professor!
Professor Xavier: I'm sorry. I couldn't resist. [he, Jean, and Cyclops laugh and so does Nightcrawler]

Spyke: [to an overweight Kurt] Dude, lay off the burger bombs.

On Angel's Wings [2.07]

Shadowcat [noticing Kurt holding a mistletoe above her head]: Kurt! In your dreams!
Nightcrawler: All in the holiday spirit! [he closes his eyes and puckers his lips]
Shadowcat [standing up and running away]: Kurt! Knock it off!
Nightcrawler: [Nightcrawler chases her] Come on, Kitty! Just one little kiss? Pleeaase? [Nightcrawler and Shadowcat run past Professor Xavier and Wolverine]
Professor Xavier: Ah, to be young again.
Wolverine: Yeah... glad that's over.

Beast: Be not forgetful to entertain strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.
Professor Xavier: Shakespeare?
Beast: The Bible.

Cyclops: You mean he's some kind of demon?
Rogue: [sarcastically] Yeah, right!
Beast: There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy."
Rogue: Now that's Shakespeare. [About Angel and his recent vigilantism.]

African Storm [2.08]


Joyride [2.09]

[About letting Avalanche join the X-Men.]
Cyclops: Professor, I think this is a mistake. I know Lance; he wouldn't do this unless he wanted something.
Professor X: Yes, I agree. What he wants, is to be near Kitty.
Cyclops: But-
Professor X: I believe he's genuine about his feelings for her. And maybe, that's a good beginning. Now, let's give him a chance.
Professor X: Well, fortunately, there's no official mention of the incident. The military must believe it was a UFO sighting, so they are, no doubt, covering it up.
Nightcrawler: Now all I've got to do is wax the X-Jet and my probation is history. [Sees that the X-Jet is messed up, dismayed] Oh, man! This is gonna take a lot of wax!
Professor X: That's all right, Kurt. Consider your probation over. [As Kurt takes off celebrating, Xavier turns toward the new arrivals] Yours, however, is just beginning. And you can start by cleaning the X-Jet.

Mindbender [2.10]

[Rogue cranks the Jack-in-the-Box until Mesmero's face pops up.]
Rogue: The mind-bending Mesmero. He was in Bayville last week with that circus of mystery.
Charles: Then we need to attend their next engagement.
Hank: [Enters] Professor. The last remaining ring? It resides in Washington D.C., at the Museum of Eastern Antiquities.

[After telekinetically knocking Charles down, Mesmero goes into the tent. His control over the other X-Men finally wears off.]
Shadowcat: [Relieved] Whoa. [Confused] What's going on? How did we get here?
Wolverine: [Massaging his injured shin] Yeah, sure, now you're all better.
[Jean slowly wakes up.]
Cyclops: [Crouches down to help Jean up] Easy, Jean.
Jean: Scott?
Cyclops: I'm right here. Everything's okay.
[Rogue puts Charles back in his wheelchair, then uses the telekinesis she absorbed from Jean to tear apart the tent, but realizes that Mesmero is gone.]
Rogue: [Realizes that Mesmero is gone] Hey! Where'd he go?!
Beast: [To Charles] Are you all right? Did Mesmero hurt you?
Charles: Not Mesmero, Hank. Mesmero was just another puppet, like Jean. There was someone else pulling the strings. A mind more powerful than anything I've ever encountered.
Wolverine: What could he possibly want with those rings?
Charles: I really don't know, but I doubt we'll like the answer.

Shadow Dance [2.11]

[Wolverine and Nightcrawler escape from a pack of vicious reptilian demons in the "bamf" dimension.]
Wolverine: Well I'd say they were pretty hostile. Wouldn't you?

Boom-Boom: Oh, come on! I don't look that bad!
[to Toad and Blob, who scream at the sight of a "bamf" demon, just as she exits the washroom.]

[The demons attack guests at the Bayville High Dance. One goes for Kurt and Amanda.]
Amanda: Kurt! Get us out of here!
Nightcrawler: How? We're trapped!
Amanda: Make us disappear! Hurry! I've seen you do it! Please!

Amanda: You know, blue really is my favorite color.
[to Nightcrawler, after he reveals his true physical form to her.]

Retreat [2.12]

[After Beast returns from his chaotic nightly rampage.]
Beast: I don't know what to say... I am so sorry about this.
Professor Xavier: Well, it was bound to happen.
Beast: What do you mean?
Professor Xavier: What was it the last time... You attended a drive-in movie, hidden in the bed of a pick-up truck?

Shadowcat: How much do you know about the Redwoods?
Iceman: Only that they make great hot tubs.

Beast: Journey? Where can you go when you can't be seen by the public?
[to Professor Xavier, after he is advised to go on a trip to find himself.]

[After Beast announces his pick of students for an impromptu field trip to Redwood Forest.]
Iceman: Me? But my grades are improving!
Beast: Uh-huh. With the speed of a glacier. You, too, Evan.
Spyke: Aw, come on, teach! Can't I do my studying somewhere else! Like going to the park! There's green stuff there!
[Beast looms in on Spyke in a mock-threatening way, cornering him by the door.]
Spyke: ...do these forests have sidewalks?

[After Sunspot finishes covering the X-Jet in an ample amount of branches.]
Wolfsbane: It was plenty camouflaged!
Sunspot: A few more branches couldn't hurt.
Wolfsbane: I smell overachiever issues.

Beast: Send me an e-mail, and I'll take your complaint under "advisement".
[to Spyke, as the latter protests at the beginning of the trek.]

Beast: This is not who I am.
Shadowcat: Maybe it's who you're meant to be.

Beast: You can't go back either, huh?
[to a stranded fish beached on the side of a river.]

[After Beast assigns the students to find five different types of rocks.]
Wolfsbane: Five samples. I guess a go getter like you will bring back ten.
Sunspot: Maybe twelve. You see, the first five are like a cake; the rest are like the icing. And I like icing.
Wolfsbane: I thought you were putting on a little weight.

Big Foot Fanatic: ...is he wearing trunks?
[about Beast, whom has been accidentally caught on tape and mistaken as Big Foot.]

Big Foot Fanatic: It looks like we've got ourselves the real McCoy.
[about Beast, after the expedition successfully captures him.]

[Two hunters are searching for Bigfoot, using whistles that replicate animal calls]
Hunter 1: Where I can I get one of those?
Hunter 2: Bigfoot trading post. Ask for Mulder
[Beast swings in the trees above them while The X-Files theme plays]

Big Foot Research Scientist: This is a wonder of Nature! It is our duty to respect it!
Hunter 1: What? It's not like we're going to make a rug out of it!
Hunter 2: A coat, maybe, but not a rug.
[about the captive Beast, after the hunters comment how much Big Foot will be worth in the market.]

Big Foot Research Scientist: Good Heavens! You can speak!
[to a captive Beast, as the latter attempts to strike up a friendly intellectual conversation with him.]

Walk on the Wild Side [2.13]

[After Boom-Boom barges into the bathroom without knocking, effectively interrupting Toad.]
Toad: Man! I take one shower a month, and still I get no privacy!
Boom Boom: Here, you dropped the soap.
[She drops bombs into the bath, causing water to spill out along with a screaming Todd]
Boom Boom: [to Blob, who is walking upstairs] Ya know, Freddie, mohawks are so last century. [to Avalanche, who is rummaging around in the fridge] Lance! Any gas in your jeep?
Avalanche: Yeah. Why?
[Boom Boom drives off in Lance's jeep]
Avalanche: She's taken my ride!

Magma: Look, didn't your mother teach you not to pick on girls?!
Chop Shop Boss: Oh, yeah. Yeah, too bad I never listened to her.
Boom Boom: Well, guess what, braindead? She was right! And here's why!

[Cyclops and Nightcrawler are on a stake-out watching for the girls]
Nightcrawler: Blue Boy to Tracker One. Do you read? The pigeons are leaving the roost.
Cyclops: Kurt, I'm right here... and why are you talking like that?

Operation: Rebirth [2.14]


The HeX Factor [2.15]

Boom-Boom: Let me guess: you must be Mistic.
Mystique: Try Mystique. This is my home, and my rules. Rule Number One: Move out of my room. Think you can handle that, Bam-Bam?

Mystique: Gentlemen, meet your new secret weapon.
Quicksilver: Wanda?!
Scarlet Witch: Pietro?!
[Scarlet Witch goes into a rage and starts using her powers against the Brotherhood.]
Toad: Ex-girlfriend?
Quicksilver: Worse! She's my sister!
Toad: Your sister?
Lance: Whoa! You two need some serious family councilling!

Boom-Boom: Room's all yours, Mys-tique!
[after blowing up said room with her time bombs.]

Shadowcat: ... So? What does it need?
Nightcrawler: Something to wash out the taste.
[about the rubbery muffins Shadowcat made for Home Economics class.]

Shadowcat: Ok, how do these taste after my last six batches?

Nightcrawler: Well, better do as he says. [Nightcrawler teleports, dropping Kitty's muffin, which cracks the floor tiles]
Shadowcat: [to Cyclops] Muffin?

Day of Reckoning - Part 1 [2.16]


Day of Reckoning - Part 2 [2.17]

Scarlet Witch: Hello, Father.
Magneto: Wanda! Not now!
Scarlet Witch: You locked me away.
Magneto: You gave me no choice. You couldn't control your anger.
Scarlet Witch: You haven't seen me angry, until now!

Season 3


Day of Recovery [3.01]

Toad: Ooh, beautiful and bad.
[at Scarlet Witch, after she hexes a number of pursuing troops.]

[The Brotherhood house: The police cars are parked outside. Toad, hanging a bag on his shoulder, hops on the roof, then hops down on the ground. He is grabbed by Lance, who pulls him into the back of the house.]
Lance: [Searches through the bag] Hey, Toad! Where are our clothes? [Pulls out Wanda's nightgown] This is all just Wanda's stuff! [Wanda snatches her nightgown from him]
Toad: Yeah, well, who cares what we wear. [To Wanda] I'd go with the, uh, black apres, red top, and matching ruby choker.
[Wanda shoves Toad away and walks away.]
Toad: [Sighs dreamily] She makes a guy wanna- brush his teeth.

[The lookout point: Wolverine is looking at the destroyed institute through binoculars. He growls.]
Shadowcat: Now what? The institute's gone, the professor's missing, we can't go back to school, and it's open season on mutants.
Nightcrawler: Well, look at the bright side, no homework.
Jean Grey: [Approaches Cyclops] Scott, it's not all your fault.
Cyclops: Yeah, right. Face it, Jean, I blew it. I gambled and I lost. Without Mystique, there's no way to find the professor.
Wolverine: [Approaches Cyclops and Jean, to Cyclops] Hey, if you hadn't have done it, I would have. We'll find him without her.
Storm: But right now, we have a world out there to worry about: A world that fears us. Somehow, we must teach them that we're the good guys, before it's too late.

The Stuff of Heroes [3.02]

Rogue: [Seeing herself on TV, outraged] Normal?! Look at me! I look fat! [To Logan] Do I look that fat to you?
Wolverine: Shh. Pipe down, would ya? We're tryin' to keep a low profile.
Rogue: Well, I am not buyin' these cupcakes. [Puts back the cupcakes]
[about the news broadcast revealing her as a mutant.]

[After Nightcrawler teleports upside-down, but attains reception on the pocket television he is carrying.]
Nightcrawler: Oh, man! I'm trapped here!

Nightcrawler: Do you mind? You're in my personal space!
[to Shadowcat, as she phases halfway through him to get a better view of the television.]

[Nightcrawler, along with Shadowcat, teleports into an attacking helicopter.]
Nightcrawler: Hi! I'm Nightcrawler, and this is Shadowcat.
Shadowcat: And this is your weapons system.
[Shadowcat phases through the controls, short-circuiting them.]
Both: [Waving.] Bye!

Juggernaut: What are you trying to do? Embarass me to death? Come on, gimme your best shot!
Cyclops: You know, that's just what I had in mind. [starts to use his eye blasts against Juggernaut]
Juggernaut: You think that fancy visor's gonna stop me?! NOTHING stops me! I'M RAW POWER!
Cyclops: Yeah? You want it raw, tough guy? Then take it RAW! [removes his visor and uses his powers at full force]

[After the X-Men defeat the Juggernaut and save the dam.]
Senator: Er... what did they just do?
Storm: What they were trained to do: use their powers for good.

Train Driver: [to police officer, showing him Juggernaut in train] See, I told you. He jumped on at Roseburg and look at the size of him!
Officer: All right step on out here big guy! Nice and easy
Juggernaut: [sighs] You do not want to do this.
Officer: [takes his beating stick] Get out of there now and identify yourself!
Juggernaut: [puts on helmet] Hm, you want to know who I am? [gets up and jumps through roof of train car] Juggernaut! [pushes them aside and walks off]

[The X-Men discover Charles in Juggernaut's holding tank.]
Jean: Professor! [To the technician] Is he all right?
Technician: Yes, he'll be fine. We had no idea.
Cyclops: Just get him out of there.
Technician: [Types on the keyboard to open the tank] I don't understand how anyone could get Juggernaut out, let alone get Professor Xavier in.
Rogue: That's Mystique.
Jean: We've learned never to underestimate her.
[Wolverine arrives.]
Wolverine: [To Cyclops] Good job. [Cyclops nods]
[The tank opens. Cyclops steps inside and holds Charles as he wakes up.]
Cyclops: Easy, professor. Everything is gonna be okay.

President: My fellow Americans - all my fellow Americans, human and mutant - I stand before you now to clear the X-Men of all wrongdoing in the giant Sentinel robot disaster. The real criminal suspect behind the Sentinel weapon has been arrested and charged. This has caught us all by surprise, but isn't reason for any of us to judge people solely by their differences. To put it as simply as I can, we need to learn more. We need to be open-minded. And we need to give this mutant question more time.

Mainstream [3.03]

[Jubilee hands her father her suitcases. Her father takes them and puts them in the trunk of the car, as Logan and Charles look on.]
Logan: [Sighs] First Rahne, now Jubilee. I can't believe parents are pulling their kids out of here. Do they really it'll any better for 'em at home?
Charles: I hate to admit it, Logan, but I would probably do the same thing.
[Jubilee drives away with her father, as Logan and Charles look on.]
Charles: After all, I promised them their children would be safe here. Obviously, that hasn't been the case.
Logan: This is my fault. [Zips up his jacket and tugs it] I shoulda caught Mystique's scent when she was here posing as you.
Charles: And I should have sensed her in Wanda's hospital room before she abducted me. But the fact is, with her advanced shape-changing abilities, she's now able to conceal herself completely from us.
Logan: Yeah, well- [Walks away from Charles] I still shoulda known. I'm going for a ride, Charles.

Duncan: Jean, I want you to know: This doesn't change a thing.
Jean: It doesn't?
Duncan: Of Course Not. I'm prepared to overlook your problem.
Jean: Problem?
Duncan: Yeah. We could really use your mind-reading powers to good use, like during exams...
Jean: You...you lug head! We are so through!

Colossus: When you tire of the discrimination, Magneto offers you the chance to join him.
Wolverine: So I can become a lackey like you?! I don't think so!
Colossus: I am not a lackey! I... I have no choice.

Blob: We don't go anywhere we ain't wanted.
Toad: Since when?

Toad: If you can't be cool, be feared. My momma always told me that!

Kid: Hey, what's your special power? Can you, like, read my mind?
Rogue: Yeah, like I could find it.

Shadowcat: This is the real you, isn't it?! You're nothing but a hood!
Avalanche: Right. I'll never be good enough for you!

[Logan is walking when he sees the X-Men walking past him on their way to Sub-Level 7.]
Logan: There a funeral I don't know about?
Scott: Could say that. We dug our own graves last night.

The Stuff of Villains [3.04]


Blind Alley [3.05]

Note: Scott and Jean's platonic feelings for each other strengthens into pure romance.

Cyclops: Logan, have you ever... you know... really cared for someone?
Wolverine: Pliers.
Cyclops: [tosses wire strippers] I mean, you felt it so strong you couldn't even get the words out?
Wolverine: Yeah, once. Most beautiful bike I ever saw. I was so speechless someone else bought her. [groans] Not wire strippers, pliers! Use your eyes, kid!
Cyclops: Problem is, how's the guy supposed to know if the girl feels the same way?
Wolverine: Look, here's how I see it: I'd like to finish this job before New Years. So if you don't tell her, I will.

X-Treme Measures [3.06]

[Evan pours himself a glass of milk, which he drinks, then pours himself another glass.]
Ray: Evan. Quit zoning out, man. How 'bout sharing some of that milk?
[Evan pushes the milk carton towards Ray. As Ray takes the carton, Evan discovers that his hand is covered in bone plates, prompting him to cover it with his other hand.]
Ray: Thanks. [Pours milk into his bowl of cereal]
[Evan stands up and carries his bowl to the sink.]
Ray: Hey, uh, you entering that Pow-R8 skate this morning?
Evan: [Puts his bowl in the sink] Yeah, why?
Ray: 'Cause I think it's about to start.
[Evan turns to look at the clock.]

[Ray slowly frees his body from Torpid's immobilizing touch. Scaleface approaches him and transforms into a dragon.]
Ray: Scaleface! You gotta let me go!
[Ray blasts the manhole cover into the air and climbs out. He dodges Scaleface's hand as she tries to grab him. As Ray runs down the street, he pulls out his cellphone and calls Charles.]
Ray: [On his phone] Professor, I know where Evan is!

[Ororo is looking for Evan.]
Ororo: Evan!
Evan: [Approaches his aunt] I'm here.
Ororo: Evan! [Starts to run to her nephew]
Evan: [Stops Ororo] Wait! Stay back. I'm- I'm going through some changes.
Ororo: That doesn't matter. Let me take you home.
Evan: No. Not right now. I just gotta take a break. Everything's so crazy right now.
Ororo: But we can help you through this.
Evan: Please don't worry about me, or look for me. I'm with friends. Goodbye, Auntie O. [Walks away along with the Morlocks]
Ororo: Wait! [Starts running after Evan and the Morlocks] Evan, don't go! [Stops running after seeing that Evan and the Morlocks have disappeared] Evan! [Becomes heartbroken]

[Charles closes the door of his car.]
Charles: Logan, let's go home. [Buckles his seatbelt]
Kitty: [In the driver's seat wearing the driver's hat, shocking Charles] Logan said I could drive. Hang on, we'll be there in a jiffy!
[Kitty drives away, with Charles pressed up against the window in terror.]

The Toad, the Witch and the Wardrobe [3.07]

Quicksilver: May I remind you losers that Magneto put me in charge of this group for a reason? The only chance you have of joining his new group is if you guys can prove you can work together as a team. And that, my friends, takes leadership. Strong, decisive, fearless- WANDA! Don't tell her I'm here!
[Quicksilver hides in a closet as Scarlet Witch storms into the Brotherhood home.]
Toad: Babycakes, you've come back to me.
Scarlet Witch: Where is he?!
Toad: Pietro? He's in the closet.
[Wanda uses her powers to rip away the door.]
Quicksilver: Thanks a lot, wart boy!

Nightcrawler: That was a delicious dinner, Mrs. Sefton.
Amanda's Mother: Well, it was sweet of you to offer to do the dishes.
Amanda: Oh, Kurt is very considerate. He gets good grades, too. And he has the nicest friends.
[Immediately before Toad crashes into the Sefton cottage and tries to steal Nightcrawler's portable holo-projector.]

[After Toad accidentally slips into the sink.]
Toad: EW! I touched soap!

[Toad has destroyed Amanda's house and stolen Kurt's image inducer, revealing his true self]
Amanda: [weakly] So, who wants dessert?

[Nightcrawler is sadly staring at a picture of himself and Amanda.]
Toad: [Hops in through the window, causing Nightcrawler to turn around] Hey, hey, hey! Nightcreeper!
Nightcrawler: [Enraged] You! You ruined my life, you bug-eating scab! Give me back my inducer!
Toad: [Hop on the bed] Now, I'm sensing some hostility here.
[Enraged, Nightcrawler attempts to tackle Toad, but he jumps up in the air and lands on top of him. Nightcrawler throws Toad on the floor and they start fighting.]
Toad: [Gets Nightcrawler in a headlock] Uh, would this be the wrong time to ask you for a favor?
[Nightcrawler throws Toad of him, then tackles him. They keep fighting.]
Toad: [Pins Nightcrawler down] Look, I haven't got your inducer, okay? But you'll get it back, I promise. I just need your help on a teeny-weeny matter.

[Nightcrawler and Toad arrive outside Magneto's hideout.]
Toad: Look, all you gotta do is get us in there. I'll do the "damsel rescuing".
Nightcrawler: Fine. But the minute we're out, we go get the inducer, right?
Toad: Yeah, uh, well [Pulls out the image inducer] about that–
Nightcrawler: [Enraged] You slimeball! You said you didn't have it! [Snatches the image inducer from Toad] Okay, that's it! I'm outta here! [Tries to leave]
Toad: [Stops Nightcrawler before he can leave] Wait, wait! Look, give me a break, will ya? I just want a chance to– [Sighs] to look good for Wanda, you know? Like you do for Amanda.
Nightcrawler: You mean, like I did, till you showed up.
Toad: Okay, okay. But you know, hiding who we are is something you and me kinda got in common, especially if it's for someone we care about. Come on, what do ya say?
Nightcrawler: [Sighs, knowing he has no choice but to help Toad rescue Wanda] Somebody kick me.
Toad: All right! [Snatches the image inducer from Nightcrawler] You're my man elf! [Puts on the image inducer and uses it to transform into Eric] Now we be rescuing, ja ja?
[Nightcrawler takes Toad's arm and teleports them both into the hideout.]

[Wanda is taking some books out of the bookcase and putting them in a box, with Toad looking on.]
Toad: Okay, okay. Let me get this straight. You mean, you're not mad at your father no more?
Wanda: Not really. I know I was once, but- it's funny. I just can't seem to remember why. It's all a blur.
Toad: Man! They really did a number on your head. Well, let me enlighten you, Snookums. Uh, see, when you were a kid-
[Pietro speeds by, grabbing Toad and taking him to the kitchen.]
Pietro: Are you nuts?! Why do you wanna start all that again?!
Toad: Hey, I was just-
Pietro: Look, she's a lot happier with all those memories gone, which means she'll stop looking for Magneto, which means she'll stick around here near you.
Toad: Ha ha ha. You got a point. Okay, I'll keep my mouth shut. Besides, if she can get over hating her father, then there's hope for me yet.
[Toad hops back to Wanda.]

Self Possessed [3.08]

Jamie: Come on, Kitty, just wear it for a while.
Kitty: Jamie, I said no.
[Jamie makes a sad face]
Kitty: Oh alright, but this does not mean we're on a date.
Jamie: It doesn't? {places corsage on kitty}
Kitty: Listen, you were the only one who didn't have plans. Besides you're, like, 12 years old.
Jamie: But Roberto lent me his suit and everything. He expects a full report.
Kitty: Jamie!

[Rogue is inside the infirmary recovering, with Logan by her side. Charles is outside looking on.]
Scott: [Approaches Charles] How long has he been in there?
Charles: He's never left her side.
Scott: But she is recovering, right?
Charles: Yes- slowly. However, having all of those personalities driven out has left her very fragile. And her toughest challenge still awaits her: Coming to term with who Risty really was, and who Mystique really is.
[Inside the infirmary.]
Logan: Hmm. I won't lie to you, kid. Getting over this ain't gonna be easy. Something about– betrayal always sticks with you, but trust me, you'll learn to deal with it. [Takes Rogue's hand] You move on, and– you let your real friends be there for you.
[Rogue's hand squeezes Logan's, which Logan notices and smiles. Rogue, having woken up, sheds tears of happiness.]

Under Lock and Key [3.09]


X23 [3.10]

Deborah Risman: My job there [HYDRA] was to create a weapon. The perfect weapon. Based on data HYDRA had stolen from a project codenamed: Weapon X. But I failed. Time and time again. Twenty-two times to be precise. Twenty-three was the charm once we realized where to look for the answers. It was you, Weapon...uh, Wolverine. Your healing factor was the key. Therefore, we... acquired your DNA.
Wolverine: You...cloned me?
Deborah Risman: Not entirely. I had to make a few genetic variations. Unfortunately, that caused some...instability. X-23 became volatile. Dangerous. Our efforts to breed out emotions left behind...explosive anger. I succeeded in creating the ultimate weapon.
Wolverine: But then you couldn't control it.
Deborah Risman: She's out there, somewhere. And she must be found.

Deborah Risman: HYDRA molded her from birth. Removing all distractions. Isolating her from all attachments...or love.
Wolverine: And yet you just let it all happen.
Deborah Risman: It was made very clear that I could leave if I disapproved. For her sake, I chose to stay. We trained her how to blend in naturally with others. But when she watched children having fun, witnessed loving families... unexpected hostilities emerged. When she was twelve... they put her through the Weapon X process.
Wolverine: ENOUGH! She's a child, not a weapon! [Growls] How do you sleep at night?
Deborah Risman: I don't. That's why I'm here. To help her. To try and undo some of the damage I've done.

[Scott and Ray see that the person trying to enter is Rogue.]
Rogue: [Recoils in fright] Stop, it's me!
[Scott and Ray sigh in relief before the former grabs and pulls Rogue in, then closes the doors.]
Rogue: What's going on?
Scott: Someone's infiltrated the institute. They've already taken down the professor.
Rogue: [Horrified] Oh, no.
Ray: [Crouches down in front of Charles] It's small, but I think I can zap it off without hurting him.
Scott: Do it.
[Ray charges and moves his hand over the device on Charles' head, ready to zap it off.]
Logan: [Bursts in] Don't! Those things are wired to explode.
[Ray recoils in horror.]
Scott: Logan, who's doing all this?
Logan: We gotta get you three outta here.
Scott: No! I'm not leaving without the others.
Rogue: Me neither.
Ray: I'm staying, too.
[Logan growls in anger.]

Wolverine: [taking over training from Beast] The course has a new objective today.
New mutants: [collective groan]
Wolverine: It's called....Mutant Dodgeball.
New mutants: [collective cheer]
Iceman: Yes! I am so good at this game!
Wolverine: Oh, and extra credit for anyone who takes out the ice cube.
Iceman: [Shocked] What?!
Professor Xavier: Why the change of tactics, Logan?
Wolverine: Sometimes, you gotta let kids just be kids.

Dark Horizon - Part 1 [3.11]

[The X-Men and the New Mutants are preparing breakfast, Ray using a blender to make a milkshake, Kurt setting the table, Amara frying eggs, Scott opening a bag of bagels and taking out a bagel, Bobby eating an apple and icing everyone's drinks, and Jean using a toaster. Rogue, still having a headache, enters and sees the X-Men and the New Mutants having breakfast, Bobby carrying a bowl of fruit, Ray pouring himself a drink, Kurt eating eggs, and Kitty phasing into the fridge to get jelly, butter, and two orange juice cartons. She phases out and throws Roberto and the three Jamie clones the jelly, butter, and the two orange juice cartons. Two Jamie clones catch the jelly and butter, while one Jamie clone and Roberto catch the two orange juice cartons.]
Rogue: I think I'm gonna pass on breakfast. [Walks away]

[Gambit breaks up a fight between Wolverine and Sabretooth.]
Gambit: Here's a bulletin: Now, this ain't about you pitbulls! Let's go find Rogue.

Dark Horizon - Part 2 [3.12]

[Gambit, Sabertooth, and Wolverine are tracking Rogue on a snowy mountain]
Wolverine: [Sniffs] Hm, three of them, and since I can't detect a third scent, it must be Mystique.
Gambit: How 'bout you guys stop sniffin' everything and follow the footprints!

[Shadowcat and Nightcrawler under the Sphinx]
Shadowcat: [To Nightcrawler] I think we're close. Why don't you go up and join the Professor? I'll look for the others.
Nightcrawler: [Regarding Colossus] And leave you alone with Steel Face? Forget it, he shouldn't be trusted.
Shadowcat: Oh, he's not that bad, kind of a softy if you ask me. He's just so quiet.
Colossus: [After breaking through a wall to regroup with them] I, I grew concerned.

[Gambit, Sabertooth, and Wolverine just fended off a mental attack by Mesmaro]
Wolverine: Xavier's mental blocks just saved our lives.
Sabertooth: [To Wolverine] Especally yours, Mesmero was telling me to push you off the mountain. Problem is; I'm still tempted.
Gambit: Do me a favor, why don't you both jump off the mountain!

Cruise Control [3.13]

[Cyclops and Jean Grey show outright affection for each other.]
Shadowcat: Oh, man. Are they for real?
Nightcrawler: [imitating] Jean, darling, please accept this croissant as a symbol of my love.
Shadowcat: Oh, Scott... you have such a way with pastry...

Season 4


Impact [4.01]

Toad: Hello, McFly! [to Mystique, now a stone statue, as he knocks on her head]

Nightcrawler: If you don't help her, this will haunt you for the rest of your life. Prove that you're not like her.
[to Rogue, in persuading her to save Mystique.]

No Good Deed [4.02]

Toad: Never fear, people, the Brotherhood has arrived. We'll stop that runaway train.
Bystander: Yeah, but what about the other train?
Quicksilver: Uh... What other train?
Bystander: Radio says one's coming the other way carrying eight tankers of gasoline.

Avalanche: Yea THIS"LL go out with a bang.

Target X [4.03]

[The Xavier Institute.]
Bobby: I'm just saying I'm practically an X-Man. I don't need to learn this stuff. None of us do.
Scott: Look- [Wipes an apple in his hand with a cloth] -I understand that Jean and I aren't that much older, but we have been doing this for longer. [Puts down the apple on Bobby's table]
Jean: We've learned a lot since we've been here, working with the professor, Storm, and Logan. [Telekinetically levitates the New Mutants into the air]
Scott: We could say we've got experience on our side. [Lifts up his sunglasses and fires an optic beam that barely misses Bobby, reflects off the walls and ceiling, barely missing the New Mutants by an inch, and comes down and splits an apple on Bobby's desk in two]
Bobby: [Impressed] Whoa.
Jean: [Telekinetically lowers the New Mutants back into their seats] Now do you guys wanna something from us old timers or not?
[Logan, who is outside looking on, chuckles. As Logan walks away, the doors close.]

Sins of the Son [4.04]


Uprising [4.05]

Magma: Hey! Accidents happen. Like, if I "accidentally" dropped this, it will "accidentally" burn a hole right through your car.
[to Duncan, as he threatens Cannonball.]
Duncan: Get away from there, or I'll show you how accidents can go both ways!

[After Amara and Sam leave, Spyke lands in front of Duncan and his two companions.]
Spyke: As for you: threatening little girls? You're lucky I just damaged your car.
Duncan: Yeah, and you think you're going to get away with messing up my ride?
Spyke: Well, I guess the question is: [Pops his wrist spikes] What are you gonna do about it?
[Duncan backs up in fear. He and Spyke notice the former's phone on the ground. Spyke flips it to him with his wrist spike.]
Spyke: Go ahead. Make your call. Spread the word. Tell them the mutants of Bayville are off-limits to hate crime, as of now.
[Spyke jumps into the sewers, shooting off two flaming arrows that blow up Duncan's car.]
Duncan: [Into phone] Get me the police!

Wolverine: When did the porcupine start shooting flaming arrows? Did I miss an upgrade notice or something?

Wolverine: Maybe it slipped your notice, Chuck, but I'm not exactly the model of restraint.

Wolverine: [After being told by Charles to go to the sewers instead of Storm] Alright, I'll try to sweet talk the kid into not smacking down creeps and thugs who deserve it. But you'll be lucky if I don't end up joining him myself.

Beast: We, scientists, have a special term for that called "I don't know..."

Kid: I'm starting to think the old lady next door might actually be one.
[during the news channel coverage on the public's reaction toward mutants.]

Farmer: What's a mutant?
[during the news channel coverage on the public's reaction toward mutants.]

Jean Grey: Duncan, don't do this.
Duncan: Save it, Jean. My days of listening to you are over.
Jean Grey: And my days of putting up with you are over!

[After Dorian Leech suddenly causes all the power to go out, including mutant power.]
Cyclops: [Removes his visor and realizes] That kid! he's somehow supressing the energy around here. Including mutant powers.
Wolverine: [Wincing in pain] Yeah– [Retracts his claws] How nice.

[Spyke starts to approach the manhole when Storm approaches him.]
Storm: Evan, please. You don't have to go back with them. Return to the Institute.
Spyke: Sorry, Auntie O. But this? [Picks up Duncan's gun] This isn't over. And you guys don't need me, not like they do.
Storm: Then just know that I am proud of you.
[Spyke looks at his aunt and the rest of the X-Men, then chuckles and goes down into the sewers.]

[Dorian and his mother are approaching their house when Charles approaches them.]
Charles: Mrs. Leech. I realize this will be difficult times. [Hands Mrs. Leech a business card. Mrs. Leech takes it] But there is a place where you can find help. The Xavier Institute for Gifted Children will welcome Dorian, when you feel he's ready.
[Dorian smiles at Charles, who wheels away.]

Cajun Spice [4.06]

[Wolverine invades the Acolyte base and threatens Pyro.]
Wolverine: I'm looking for Gambit.
Pyro: Watch it, mate. You're wrinkling the uniform!
[Pyro forms a fiery dragon and uses it to attack Wolverine.]
Pyro: I'm real glad you dropped by, since I've been bored outta my skull!
[Wolverine eventually manages to destroy Pyro's flame-thrower, defeating the dragon. He then grabs Pyro.]
Wolverine: Where's your buddies?!
Pyro: Since Magneto's gone, Colossus bailed and went back to Russia, Sabretooth's out playing with a big ball of yarn somewhere, and Gambit didn't leave a note on the fridge.
[Wolverine throws him back into his chair and walks away.]

Rogue: What is it with you and cards?
Gambit: Oh, it's like having fifty-two explosives in one little pocket. I always save her for last.
Rogue: Queen of Hearts?
Gambit: My lucky lady. She's gotten me out of a lot of jams.
Rogue: Then I need a deck of those.

[After Rogue dangles Gambit halfway out of the train with an iron bar.]
Rogue: I don't like getting pushed in any direction. Got it?
Gambit: Point taken. Now here's mine. [uses his power to charge the train car with kinetic energy] Pull me in, or I blow this boxcar off the tracks.
[Rogue finally takes back the bar and pulls Gambit in.]
Rogue: You're just crazy enough to do it.
Gambit: We do what we have to, right cherie?

Gambit: I'm not afraid. Go ahead: absorb my thoughts. See for yourself that I mean you no harm.
Rogue: Like I want you inside my head.

Gambit's foster father: [after Storm winds some crooks away] That chick can control the weather!
Rogue: Meet my family.

Gambit: Rogue...
Rogue: Don't. You just did the wrong thing for the right reasons.
Gambit: So, what now?
Rogue: I'm going back with the X-Men. I don't care what you do.
Gambit: Sure, you don't.

Gambit: You'll be fine, cherie. You've got people looking out for you.

Ghost of a Chance [4.07]

[Kurt squeezes some mustard onto a hot dog. He picks up the hot dog and starts to leave, but Kitty phases in and grabs him.]
Kitty: Where is Danielle?!
Kurt: I thought the professor talked to you about that, Kitty, there is no-
Kitty: Why are you lying to me? Why is everyone lying to me?
Kurt: [Puts his hand on Kitty's shoulder] Kitty, seriously, I'm telling you the truth. I don't know any Danielle.
Kitty: [Realizes something] Wait a minute. The professor must have wiped your memories of her.
Kurt: Kitty, would you listen to yourself?
Kitty: [Grabs Kurt's shirt] Teleport me to Dark Hollow.
Kurt: I can't! That's too far.
Kitty: Well- then get me as close as you can.
Kurt: [Sighs, knowing he has no choice but to go with Kitty to Dark Hollow] Go get changed.

[Kitty and Kurt arrive in Dark Hollow.]
Kurt: [Looks around the town] Whoa! This is the town of Dark Hollow?
Kitty: [Looks around the town] What happened here? [Hears a payphone ringing and runs to answer the call] Hello?
Danielle: [Through the phone] Kitty? Are you there?
Kitty: [On the phone] I'm here. Where are you?
Danielle: [Through the phone] Time is running out! Help me! Help me!
[The call cuts off. Kitty gasps and turns to Kurt.]
Kurt: What are you doing?
Kitty: The phone rang. It was Danielle. She needs my help.
Kurt: Kitty- [Takes the phone from Kitty] -I'm worried about you.
[Kurt realizes that the phone is disconnected. Kitty fears the worst. She picks up the phonebook, flips through its pages, and finds Danielle's address.]
Kitty: Here! Moonstar. 760 Maggie Blue Road.

[Kitty and Kurt are searching for Danielle.]
Kurt: Come on, Kitty, this doesn't make any sense.
Kitty: I won't abandon my friend.
Kurt: How can she be your friend?
Kitty: I don't know, Kurt, she just is and she said time was running out.
Kurt: [Looks down and sees water rising from below his and Kitty's feet] It is for us too. This water is getting higher and higher.
Kitty: [Realizes something] That's it! The water's rising. I bet she's trapped in here.
Kurt: For two years?
Kitty: And I think I know where.

[Kitty and Kurt arrive at the place where Kitty's accident happened.]
Kitty: This is where I met her. Something tells me she's somewhere down there.
Kurt: Why don't we just go get help?
Kitty: You get help. [Takes the flashlight from Kurt] I'm going down there!
Kurt: [Horrified] Kitty, no!
[Kitty dives into the water and phases into the ground.]

[Danielle wakes up in the infirmary, with Kitty by her side.]
Kitty: Hi. Feeling better?
Danielle: Yes.
Kitty: Good, because your grandfather will be here soon.
Danielle: Kitty, thank you for believing.
Kitty: Hey, how could I not believe?
[Logan, Charles, and Kurt are outside the infirmary watching Kitty and Danielle talk.]
Kitty: When you projected yourself into my mind, everything was so real. It was like- we actually became friends.
Danielle: We did.
[Outside the infirmary.]
Kurt: But- how did she survive down there?
Charles: It was her mutant abilities. They put her into a form of hibernation.
Logan: And she connected with Kitty through, what, some kind of out-of-body experience?
Charles: Exactly, Logan. A psychic connection that made for a most unusual friendship.

Ascension - Part 1 [4.08]

Mesmero: Apocalypse will trigger the dormant X gene in the normal population, turning most into mutants.
Storm: what do you mean "most"?
Mesmero: Some will not survive the wave of evolution.

[Xavier and Apocalypse communicate telepathically. An amusing note is that despite sounding very different, both characters are voiced by David Kaye]
Professor Xavier: I am Charles Xavier.
Apocalypse: I know who you are.
Professor Xavier: Then you know I've merely come to talk. To discuss what you're planning, and-
Apocalypse: I have planned nothing. I am but an instrument of destiny.
Professor Xavier: But it's a destiny of destruction.
Apocalypse: The future came to me in that craft. I have embraced it, and merged with its technology so that I may lead the evolution of the human race.
Professor Xavier: The human race does not need your help.
Apocalypse: [Smirks] Hmm, since when has mankind ever known what it needs?
Professor Xavier: You have to know that somehow, you will be stopped.
Apocalypse: What I know is... it will not be by you.

[Jean, sobbing, runs out of Cerebro, with Cyclops behind her.]
Cyclops: Jean–
Jean Grey: He knew this would happen! I knew this would happen! I should have stopped him!
Cyclops: How? Jean, the professor was gonna do what he thought was right, regardless of the risks. And Storm would never abandon him. [Puts his hand on Jean's shoulder] There was nothing you could have done.
[Cyclops and Jean embrace as the latter continues sobbing.]

Ascension - Part 2 [4.09]

Wolverine: Okay, teams, this is it. Everything you've ever learned about yourselves. Your strengths and your limits It all comes down to this very moment. Tonight we're the world's last, best hope to stop this madman. So we're gonna trash those pyramids any way we can, no matter who we gotta go through to do it.
Jean: [telepathically] Professor, listen to me. Apocalypse has somehow taken control of you. He's making you go against everything you ever believed in, everything you devoted your life to. You will be destroying millions of lives.

[After the Brotherhood manages to bury Magneto under debris.]
Toad: Did we win?
Quicksilver: Yeah, right, Don't you ever learn?
Toad: Oh, yeah. We never win.

Jean: Sorry, Professor, but I have to do this. Linking with Cerebro will help me even the odds.

Rogue: Where'd it go?
Wolverine: I don't know. Hopefully it just fell through the cracks of time, never to be seen again.
Rogue: For some reason, I don't think we'll be that lucky.
[About Apocalypse, after he disappears]

Nightcrawler: You did it, Rogue. The girl who shut herself off from the world just saved it.
Rogue: I wish I could say I did it for the world.

Jean: Professor.
Charles: Thank you, Jean.
[Looks sad, knowing what she will become in the near future]

[In the aftermath of the victory over Apocalypse.]
Professor Xavier: Thanks to you all, we have averted catastrophe. It was not without its price, however. But steel is forged through fire, and like it, we have been made stronger. We are prepared for what the future brings. I know this, because I have glimpsed it in the mind of Apocalypse.
[image of protesters near Capitol Hill]
Charles: Many challenges still await us, but I saw some who have been our enemies become friends.
[image of Magneto training the New Mutants]
Charles: And, with a heavy heart, I saw the dearest of friends become the most terrible of enemies.
[image of Jean being fully taken over by the Dark Phoenix as it caws]
I saw my X-Men grow and change. [image of X-Men as adults]And, of course, I saw that some people never change. [Image of Brotherhood as adults, then of Sentinels]
Charles: But one thing was clear – that no matter what awaits us, terrible or wondrous, the X-Men will always be there, ready. And of that, I am proud.
