“Professor Xavier: I feel a great swell of pity for the poor soul who comes to that school looking for trouble.”
“Magneto: [halts the game, sighs] Why do you come here, Charles?”
“Professor Xavier: Why do you ask questions to which you already know the answer? [motions the guard to take Xavier away.]”
