Famke Janssen: Jean Grey
Dr. Jean Grey : Ladies and gentlemen, we are now seeing the beginnings of another stage of human evolution. These mutations manifest at puberty, and are often triggered by periods of heightened emotional stress.
Senator Kelly : Thank you, Miss Grey! That was-quite educational. However it fails to address the issue which is the focus of this hearing. Three words: are mutants dangerous.
Dr. Jean Grey : That's an unfair question, Senator Kelly. After all, the wrong person behind the wheel of a car can be dangerous.
Senator Kelly : Well, we do license people to drive.
Dr. Jean Grey : But not to live.
Senator Kelly : I have here a list of names of identified mutants living right here in the United States.
Dr. Jean Grey : Senator...
Senator Kelly : Here's a girl in Illinois who can walk through walls. Now what's to stop her from walking into a bank vault, or the White House, or
[indicating the gallery]
Senator Kelly : into their houses?
Dr. Jean Grey : Senator, please...
Senator Kelly : ...and there are even rumors, Miss Grey, of mutants so powerful that they can enter our minds and control our thoughts, taking away our God-given free will. Now I think the American people deserve the right to decide if they want their children to be in school with mutants. To be taught by mutants! Ladies and gentlemen, the truth is that mutants are very real, and that they are among us. We must know who they are, and above all, what they can do!
Dr. Jean Grey : [after examining Wolverine] The metal is an alloy called adamantium, supposedly indestructible. It's been surgically grafted to his entire skeleton.
Storm : How could he have survived a procedure like that?
Dr. Jean Grey : His mutation. He has uncharted regenerative capabilities, enabling him to heal rapidly. It also makes his age impossible to determine. He could very well be older than you, Professor.
Cyclops : Who did this to him?
Dr. Jean Grey : He doesn't know. Nor does he remember anything about his life before it happened.
Prof. Charles Francis Xavier : Experimentation on mutants. It's not unheard of, but I've never seen anything like this before.
Cyclops : What do you think Magneto wants with him?
Prof. Charles Francis Xavier : I'm not entirely sure it's him Magneto wants.
Dr. Jean Grey : I think you'll be comfortable here.
Wolverine : Where's your room?
Dr. Jean Grey : With Scott, down the hall.
Wolverine : Is that your gift? Putting up with that guy?
Dr. Jean Grey : Actually, I'm telekinetic. I can move things with my mind.
Wolverine : Really? What kind of things?
Dr. Jean Grey : [shuts closet doors behind him with her mind] All kinds of things. I also have some telepathic ability.
Wolverine : Like the Professor?
Dr. Jean Grey : Nowhere near that powerful. But he's teaching me to develop it.
Wolverine : I'm sure he is. So read my mind.
Dr. Jean Grey : I'd rather not.
Wolverine : C'mon. You afraid you might like it?
Dr. Jean Grey : I doubt it.
Dr. Jean Grey : Mutants are not the ones mankind should fear.
Dr. Jean Grey : I saw Senator Kelly.
Magneto : So, the senator survived the fall, and the swim to shore. He's become more powerful than I imagined.
Dr. Jean Grey : He's dead. Just like all those people out there will be.
Storm : It's true. I watched him die.
Magneto : Are you sure you saw what you saw?
