Erik Lehnsherr: Excuse me, I'm Erik Lehnsherr.
Charles Xavier: Charles Xavier.
Logan: Go fuck yourself.

Raven Darkholme: We have to call him, Havok. That's his name now. And we were thinking.(points to Charles) should be Professor X. (points to Erik)...and you should be Magneto.

Hank McCoy: You have no idea what I'd give to feel...
Raven Darkholme: Normal?

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 tired to warn you, Charles. I want you by my side. We're brothers, you and I. All of together, protecting each other. We want the same thing.
Charles Xavier: My friend. I'm sorry, but we do not.

Charles Xavier: ...My legs!...I can't feel my legs.
