    Raven: Use your power, Charles. Stop him.

    Charles Xavier: I...

    Raven: He can't.

    Charles Xavier: Are you CIA?

    Logan: No.

    Charles Xavier: Have you been watching me?

    Logan: I know you, Charles. We've been friends for years. I know your powers came when you were nine. I know you thought you were going crazy when it started; all the... voices in your head, and it wasn't until you were 12 that you realized the voices were in everyone else's head. Do you want me to go on?

    Charles Xavier: I never told anyone that.

    Logan: Not yet, no, but... you will.

    Charles Xavier: All right, you've piqued my interest. What do you want?

    Logan: We have to stop Raven. I need your help. We need your help.

    Professor Charles Xavier: Hank!

    Hank McCoy: Don't mock me!

    Professor Charles Xavier: Hank, put him down immediately, please. Hank! Hank!

    [Hank lets him go]

    Erik Lehnsherr: I wasn't.

  • Hank McCoy: [to Raven] You got to see this. Your genes are extraordinary, you know that? Your cells ages at the half the rate of a normal human. When you're forty, you'll still have the leukocytes of a teenager. You have the most incredible cell structure I've ever seen.

    [Everybody applauds in amazement, Raven shifts back, indicates Sean]

    Raven Darkholme: What about you?

    Sean Cassidy: I wanna be... Banshee!

    Hank McCoy: Why do you want to be named after a wailing spirit?

    Sean Cassidy: You may want to cover your ears...

    [everyone does so, Sean looks to shatter the glasses on the table, misdirects his shriek and shatters the large paned window instead, everybody laughs]

    Raven Darkholme: [indicates Angel] What about you?

    Angel Salvadore: [she stands, removing her jacket] My stage name is Angel... and it kind of fits.

    [reveals her wings]

    Raven Darkholme: You can fly?

    Angel Salvadore: Uh huh, and...

    [turns and spits out an acidic ball at the statue outside, everybody laughs]

    Raven Darkholme: Darwin, what's your name?

    Armando Muñoz: Well, Darwin's already a nickname... and it fits: "adapt to survive" and all... Check this.

    [walks over to a fish aquarium nearby, dunks his head under the water - gills grow on the side of his face. Everyone applauds]

    Armando Muñoz: Thank you!

    [indicating Hank]

    Armando Muñoz: What about you?

    Alex Summers: How about Bigfoot?

    Raven Darkholme: Well you know what they say about guys with big feet, and you're are kinda small...

    [chuckles among the group]

    Armando Muñoz: What is your gift, Alex?

    Alex Summers: I can't. I can't do it. Not here.

    Alex Summers: Get back!

    [They do, but immediately lean back out]

    Alex Summers: Whatever.

    [Alex rocks his body as blades of energy swirl around him and fly around until he's able to launch at the statue, slicing it off at the torso]

  • Dr. Moira MacTaggert: Who destroyed the statue?

    Hank McCoy: It was Alex.

  • Hank McCoy: You have no idea what I'd give to feel...

    Raven Darkholme: Normal?

  • Professor Charles Xavier: [after Charles and Hank apply a duct tape with an X Mark on it] Wonderful work, Hank. Alright Alex, I want you to hit the X. Just the X, keep that in mind.

    Alex Summers: [gets shocked] You SERIOUS?

    Professor Charles Xavier: [seriously] I'm very serious.

    [Alex then focuses his vision on the X. He then creates an energy blast from his rings to the prototype Hank made, and hits the X. Both Charles and Hank are flabbergasted and laugh]

    Hank McCoy: Am I still a Bozo?

    Alex Summers: Yes, Hank you're still a bozo.

    [Hank frowns]

    Alex Summers: But, nice job.
