Wolverine: James "Logan" Howlett[edit]

  • I ignored my instincts. And I ignored what I really am. And that won't ever happen again.
  • I'm the best there is at what I do but what I do best isn't very nice. I'm the Wolverine.
  • I'm coming for blood; no law, no code of conduct. You put me in the right direction, you get the hell out of my way.
  • I'm gonna cut your goddamn head off. See if that works.
  • That's Fred Dukes? (referring to the now-obese Blob) That looks like the creature that ate Fred Dukes.

Sabretooth: Victor Creed[edit]

  • I'm not your friend. I'm an animal, who dreamed he was a man. But the dream is over. And the beast is awake. And I will come for you without mercy, because it's my nature.
  • (when asked why he killed Kayla) You don't call. You don't write. How else am I supposed to get your attention?
  • Tell me something, Jimmy. Do you even know how to kill me?
  • We could never be 'done', James. After all, we're brothers. And brothers look out for each other.
  • Having fun yet?

Colonel William Stryker[edit]

  • Mutants, I don't hate them. I just know what they can do. You don't realize this but we are at war. I took an oath: Protect this country. My name is William Stryker, and I am not a monster. I'm simply a patriot.
  • I'm putting together a special team, with special privileges. Tell me, gentlemen, how would you like to really serve your country?

Blob: Frederick J. Dukes[edit]

  • I don't regret the things I do. I'm proud of what I am. I'm proud of what I've done for my country. 'Cause if you think you can take me, to step up to Fred J. Dukes, you better run. 'Cause if I were to catch up, I might teach ya some manners.

Gambit: Remy LeBeau[edit]

  • If I learned anything in my life it's this: Always play the hand you're dealt. My name is Gambit. And I play for keeps.
  • See, the only difference between a winner and a loser is character. Every man has a price to charge and a price to pay. Yeah, I've paid mine in spades.

Kestrel: John Wraith[edit]

  • I've done some pretty awful things. The kind of things that could haunt a man when he sleeps. See, most people think our powers are gifts. But if it was up to me, I'd hunt the devil down myself. And give him this gift back. My name is John Wraith. And I'm a mutant.
  • See man was mean. Naturally, crazy. You gotta train them not to be.

Wade Wilson[edit]

  • All I ever wanted was to travel off in exotic places and meet new exciting people and then kill them, so I became a mercenary. My name is Wade Wilson. And I love what I do.
  • You whip out a couple of swords at your ex-girlfriend's wedding, they'll never, ever forget it.

Emma Frost[edit]

  • I remember the day they came and took us away. The soldiers hunting us. No one will stand up for us. We have to save ourselves. My name is Emma Frost. I'm a mutant. And our fight has just begun.

Kayla Silverfox[edit]

  • You know why the moon is so lonely? 'Cause she used to have a lover. His name was wolverine. They lived in the Spirit World together. And every night they'd wander the skies together. But one of the other spirits was jealous. The Trickster wanted the Moon for himself. So he told wolverine that the Moon asked for flowers. He told him to come to our world and pick her some wild roses. Wolverine didn't know that once you leave the Spirit World, you can never go back. {Now he's trapped here} Every night the Moon searches for him, and every night he sees her in the sky and howls her name, but he can never touch her again.

Agent Zero[edit]

  • My job. My mission. Is not to fear. And not to think. I execute orders and I eliminate others without prejudice.
  • [Last words, to Logan] It's really funny how innocent people tend to die around you!

Dialogue[edit]

(cell door opens. Wolverine and Sabretooth are in shackles; an officer enters the cell and approaches them.)
William Stryker: You were sentenced for decapitating a senior officer. Your sentence was carried out by a firing squad by ten-hundred hours. Now how'd that go?
Wolverine: It tickled.
Stryker: My name is Major William Stryker. You boys tired of running? Tired of denying your true nature?
Sabretooth: What do you care?
William Stryker: Oh, I care. What I care is how valuable you are. I'm putting together a special team with special privileges. Now tell me, how would you like to really serve your country?

Bolt: (in his trailer after closing time, when someone knocks on the door) The show’s over. (knocking persists) I said, show's over. (goes to open the door to find Sabretooth standing there)
Sabretooth: Show's never over for us, Bradley.
Bolt: Victor.
Sabretooth: You gonna invite me in?
Bolt: (nervously) Yeah. Come on in. You know, I've never said anything, to anyone, about what happened. I'm livin' a totally different life now, Victor. I always thought it would be Wade to come knocking on my door.
Sabretooth: Well, Wade's gone.
Bolt: I'm not afraid of you. I'm afraid of dying.
Sabretooth: How do you know? You've never tried it before.
(outside, Bolt is heard screaming as all the lights in the carnival go out one after the other)

Bartender: (sees Sabretooth carving a smiley face in the table with his nail) You're not from around here, are you?
Sabretooth: What gave me away?
Wolverine: (from outside) VICTOR!
Sabretooth: (to bartender) You got insurance on this place?
Bartender: Insurance? No.
Sabretooth: Too bad. (after Wolverine crashes through the front door) Well, well, well. Look what the cat dragged in.
Bartender: Guys, whatever this is, take it outside.
Wolverine: [draws his claws in] Why? [meaning why did Victor kill Kayla]
Sabretooth: Why? You don't call, you don't write; how else am I supposed to get your attention?

Wolverine: (holding Stryker to the wall by the neck) For six years I've been here. No one knew me and then you show up. The next day she's dead!
William Stryker: I tried to warn you.
Wolverine: Why didn't you tell me it was Victor?!
William Stryker: I-I didn't know.
Wolverine: [slams Stryker into another wall] You lie!
William Stryker: I- I swear.... on my son's life I didn't- [Wolverine lets him go; he drops to the ground] Victor's appetites were becoming too public. I had to lock him up. He felt I betrayed him. He went AWOL, he said he was coming for all of us.
Wolverine: You didn't come to warn me. You came to save your own ass. [walking away]
Stryker: So what's your plan, captain? You can't beat him, Logan. You know you can't.
Wolverine: I'll find him and kill him.
William Stryker: I can give you the tools to defeat him. (Wolverine turns) We can still save the others.
Wolverine: You mean save yourself, right?
William Stryker: I can promise you two things: You will suffer more pain than any other man can endure, but you will have your revenge.
Wolverine: I come with you, I'm coming for blood; no law, no code of conduct. You put me in the right direction, you get the hell out of my way.

Dr. Frost: When it starts, whatever the reason is that you're doing this, focus on that. Maybe it will help.
Wolverine: Trust me. I've been through worse.
Dr. Frost: No. You haven't.
William Stryker: [to Wolverine] We're gonna make you indestructible. But first, we're gonna have to destroy you. You remember what we were looking for in Africa?
Wolverine: I remember.
William Stryker: Well, I found it, it helped us to create a metal compound so strong, that you'll be able to withstand virtually anything. It's called adamantium. I can't put Victor down myself, Logan, to kill him, you'll have to embrace the other side, become the animal.
Wolverine: Let's do this.
William Stryker: Oh, I almost forgot. [brings out Wolverine's old dog tags.]
Wolverine: I want new ones.
William Stryker: What do you want them to say?
Wolverine: Wolverine.

Wolverine: Hey fat- uh, Fred. See, I remember that girl when she was about eighty-five pounds, eh? [referring to Fred's tattoo]
Blob: Oh, that's funny. You're still so funny, Logan.
Wolverine: You know where Victor is?
Blob: [scared] No idea.
Wolverine: What's "the island", slim?
Blob: Don't let the door hit you on the way out, Logan.
Wolverine: C'mon, could you tell me where Victor is, for old times' sake, bub.
Blob: Did you just call me "Blob"?
Wolverine: No, but-
Blob: HYAAAAAAAAAAA! [uses his indestructible skin and fat to bounce Wolverine off the ring and across the room]
Wraith: I told you not to mention his weight. Why'dya call him Blob, man?
Wolverine: [on the floor] I didn't call him Blob, I said "Bub"!

Wolverine: This is your idea of an idea? [holds up boxing gloves]
Wraith: Tryin' to help you out, Logan. Dukes don't like you that much and you know it.
Wolverine: Yeah, feeling's mutual.
Wraith: Then use those gloves, man. Dance with 'im a little bit. Allow him to let his anger out on ya. I figured if you'd do that he'd probably tell you everything you wanna know.
Wolverine: C'mon, man, look at him. Big ol' ass coming out the front of his shirt. Jesus, he'll have a coronary, for Christ's sake. Is there even a stretcher big enough to take this guy outta here?
[The bell rings. Blob hits Wolverine immediately.]
Wraith: It ain't him I'm worried about gettin' outta here on a stretcher.
Wolverine: [grunting with pain] You're an asshole.

Wraith: Move his ass. Dance with 'em, Fred.
Blob: Oh what's that? You wanna dance with me?
[Wolverine attacks Blob, punching him again and again; Blob stands there.]
Blob: Uhh! Oh, that was good. [Wolverine repeatedly punches him, to no effect] Oh guess what? [Blob punches him, knocking Wolverine across the ring]
Wraith: Oh, is he gonna talk now. You got 'im right where you want him.
Wolverine: Whose side are you on, anyway?

[Zero's helicopter has crashed after Wolverine cut off its rotor blades.]
William Stryker: [On the radio] Zero.
Agent Zero: I'm down.
William Stryker: Zero, is he dead? Is Logan dead? Zero come in.
Wolverine: [speaks into the headphones] You tried to kill me.
William Stryker: Logan?
Wolverine: Where's Victor?
William Stryker: Come back to base. I'll explain everything. We'll take Victor down together.
Wolverine: Wrong answer. After I kill Victor I'm coming for you. You wanted the animal, Colonel. You got it. (drops the headphones, addresses Zero) Those were good people back there. Innocent people.
[Zero just grins; Wolverine starts to walk away from the wrecked helicopter.]
Agent Zero: [laughs] It's funny how good, innocent people tend to die around you!
[Wolverine stops walking and extends his claws, strikes the ground and ignites the fuel trail to the chopper, destroying it and killing Zero.]

Wolverine: [watching Gambit playing cards] Are you Remy LeBeau?
Gambit: Do I owe you money?
Wolverine: No.
Gambit: Then Remy LeBeau I am. Large ones' a hundred and small ones' a fifty. May I deal you any?
Wolverine: Well, what do I get for seventeen bucks?
Gambit: Seventeen dollars [laughs]. A cab ride home, perhaps. So what brings you to our fair city? (starts dealing)
Wolverine: Victor Creed.
Gambit: [stops dealing and looks at Logan] Now who's that?
Wolverine: He's the man I'm gonna kill. You see he works with a man named Stryker on an island.
Gambit: [becomes unnerved] Now why do you think I know that?
Wolverine: 'Cuz I know who you are, Gambit. You're the guy who escaped and you're the guy whose gonna take me back there.
Gambit: [Notices Wolverine's dog tags] Those are some mighty nice tags you have on there sir. The man who took me had tags just like 'em.
Wolverine: Hey, now bub, you listen to me-
[Gambit's eyes glow bright red as he throws a kinetically charged card at Wolverine, knocking him into another table]

Wade Wilson: Great, stuck in an elevator with five guys on a high-protein diet.
William Stryker: (exasperatedly) Oh, Wade!
Wade Wilson: Dreams really do come true.
William Stryker: Now just shut it! You're up next.
Wade Wilson: Thank you sir, you look really nice today. It's the green. It brings out the seriousness in your eyes.
Wolverine: Oh my God, do you ever shut up, pal?
Wade Wilson: No, not while I'm awake.
