Wanderer/Wanda: Thank you, but... by the time I got to the closest planet, you, Jamie, Jared, Ian, everyone on this world I care about would be long dead. I don't want to go on without you. I love you, Mel.

Melanie Stryder: [voice speaking only to Wanda] You wish.
Wanderer/Wanda: I don't think that's possible right now.
