Eric Lensherr Quotes:

Eric Lensherr: In chess, the pawns go first.
Raven Darkholme: [after she's intercepted a cure meant for Magneto] Eric?
Eric Lensherr: I'm sorry, my dear. You're not one of us anymore.
Phoenix: [levitating everything in the room, the dropping it when The Professor and Magneto enter the room] I knew you'd come.
Prof. Charles Xavier: Of course. I've come to take you home.
Phoenix: I have no home.
Prof. Charles Xavier: Yes, you do. You have a home, and a family.
Eric Lensherr: You know he thinks your power is too strong for you to control.
Prof. Charles Xavier: Eric...
Eric Lensherr: I don't believe your mind games are going to work anymore, Charles.
Phoenix: So you want to control me?
Prof. Charles Xavier: No.
Eric Lensherr: He does.
Prof. Charles Xavier: No, I want to help you.
Phoenix: Help me? What's wrong with me?
Eric Lensherr: Absolutely nothing.
Prof. Charles Xavier: Eric, stop!

Phoenix: [throws a lamp across the room telekinetically] Stay out of my head!
Eric Lensherr: [regarding Mystique] Such a shame. She was so beautiful.
Logan: [to Colossus] This is it! Let's make it a strike!
[Colossus uses the Fastball Special and throws Wolverine at Magneto... who stops him]
Eric Lensherr: You never learn, do you?
Logan: ...actually, I do.

Eric Lensherr: [moving the Golden Gate Bridge towards Alcatraz] Charles always wanted to build bridges...
Mutant Theatre Organizer: This cure is voluntary. Nobody's is talking about extermination.
Eric Lensherr: 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: [interrupting] Excuse me, but...
Eric Lensherr: It's only that you realize, while you were talking about organizing and committees, the extermination has already begun. Make no mistake, my brothers. They will draw first blood. They will force their cure upon us. The only question is, will my brotherhood and fight, or wait for the inevitable genocide? Who will you stand with - the humans... or us?
Eric Lensherr: I still don't know why *I'm* here. Couldn't you just make them say yes?
Prof. Charles Xavier: Yes, I could, but it's not my way. And I would expect you, of all people would understand my feelings about the misuse of power.
Eric Lensherr: Ah, "power corrupts" and all that. Yes, I know, Charles. When are you going to stop lecturing me?
Prof. Charles Xavier: When you start listening. And you're here because I need you.
Eric Lensherr: [to Phoenix] Do you remember when we first met? Do you know what I saw when I looked at you? I saw the next stage of evolution both Charles and I dreamt of finding. And I thought to myself, "Why would Charles want to turn this goddess into a mortal?"
[He holds up the cure gun]
Eric Lensherr: I can manipulate the metal in this, but you, you can do anything. ANYTHING you can think of.
[the Phoenix telekinetically breaks apart the gun, and steers its cure darts towards Magneto... ]
Eric Lensherr: [alarmed] That's enough, Jean... enough! ENOUGH!
Phoenix: [At the last moment, she stops] You sound just like him.
Eric Lensherr: Nooo, HE wanted to hold you back.
Phoenix: And what do you want?
Eric Lensherr: I want you as you are. As nature intended.
Cain Marko: [on the Golden Gate Bridge, looking over at Alcatraz] How we supposed to get there? Cause I don't swim.
Eric Lensherr: I think I can take care of that...
Eric Lensherr: [as the Dark Phoenix rises, Magneto looks shocked] What have I done?
Eric Lensherr: Did you think you were the only one of your kind, young lady?
Prof. Charles Xavier: We're mutants, Jean. We're like you.
Young Jean Grey: Really? I doubt that.
[everything behind her begins to levitate]
Eric Lensherr: Oh, Charles, I like this one.
John Allerdyce: Now, check this out. "Prisoner must be confined at all times. If he builds any momentum, no object can stop him."

Eric Lensherr: I can't imagine why.
Eric Lensherr: Humans and their guns...
[sees his magnetism is ineffective]
Eric Lensherr: Plastic. They've learnt.
Eric Lensherr: [addressing the Brotherhood] They wish to cure us. But I say to you, WE are the cure! The cure for that infirm, imperfect condition called "Homo sapiens"! They have their weapons...
[gestures to the Phoenix]
Eric Lensherr: ... we have ours. We will strike with a vengeance and a fury that this world has never witnessed! And if any mutants stand in our way, we will use this poison against them! We shall go to Alcatraz Island, take control of the cure, and destroy its source! And then, nothing can stop us!
Raven Darkholme: About time
Eric Lensherr: I've been busy. Did you find what you were looking for?
Raven Darkholme: The source of the cure is a mutant, a child at Worthington Labs. Without him, they have nothing.
Eric Lensherr: [to Pyro as he levitates to him the prisoner manifest] Read off the guest list.
Eric Lensherr: [the X-Men stand between Alcatraz and the Brotherhood] Traitors to their own cause...
Mr. Grey: We don't know if you can treat her sickness...
Eric Lensherr: Sickness?
Raven Darkholme: This man robbed seven banks...
[five copies of Multiple Man walk out of the cell]
Raven Darkholme: at the same time.
Eric Lensherr: I could use a man of your talents.
Multiple Man: I'm in.
Callisto: If you're so proud of being a mutant, where's your mark?
Eric Lensherr: I have been marked once, my dear, and let me assure you,
[pulls back his sleeve to reveal the Nazi concentration camp serial number tattooed on his arm]
Eric Lensherr: no needle shall ever touch my skin again.
Callisto: I just sensed a mutant, off the charts. Whoever it is, they're more powerful than even you are...
Eric Lensherr: [remembering] Where is she?
Eric Lensherr: [Magneto captures Logan, who was sneaking around his camp and pulls Logan towards him] I know the smell of your adamantium from a mile away!
Logan: I didn't come here to fight you!
Eric Lensherr: Smart boy.
Logan: I came for Jean!
Eric Lensherr: You think I'm keeping her here against her will? She's here because she wants to be.
Logan: You have no idea what you're dealing with!
Eric Lensherr: I know full well. I saw what she did to Charles.
Logan: And you just stood there and let him die?
