(to Penance) I believe we are...kindred spirits,
you and I. Being mutants has clearly...cost us
more...than anyone...should have to pay. But
myself? I'm tired of...running. What about you,
Dude. That was, like, ninety-nine percent risk.
Chamber: Life is risk, Lee. It
just rarely works out this well.
I realise I'm meant to have some witty comment
prepared all ready to distract you while I tan
your hide six ways till Sunday but I'm still new
to this. You won't mind if I skip ahead to the
part where I kick your butt?!
"scrabble" isn't our game chica maybe
we should try something a little more...physical?
Husk: Everyone should have a
(Jubilee and Synch are
outside, in the rain, trying to talk to Gateway.)
Synch: Look, Jubilee - I'd like
to think I'm as supportive as the next guy but is
this really necessary?
Jubilee: No - I'm just out here
because I couldn't figure out how to work the
girls' showers! Duh! Now shut up Everett, so I
can ask our 'buddy' here some questions.
This is, like, too cool. Everyone just hanging...talking...playing
games and watchin' the tube. Kind of like a
nineties version of a mutated Brady Bunch, no?
Jubilee: Yer an arrogant
little rich girl in need of a major 'tude
adjustment 'cause ya think yer so much better
than the rest of us. What do you say to that, M?
I see it, M if you can press that slab and pat
yourself on the back at the same time how heavy
could it be.
M: You know,
I never cease to amaze myself.
Jubilee: Yeah, but that's never
much of a problem for you, is it?
Seriously, we're mutants. We live in the middle
of nowhere. We stay home most of the time. I live
vicariously through "The Real World"
and "Ricki Lake". Let's face it: we're
our own best friends, because we have to be, the
world doesn't want people like us around and
probably never will. We're on our own, M. Sucks,
but it's true.
The rest of you may wish to conceal the mutant
aspects of yourselves, but I have no such
Jubilee: (to Paige, about Monet)
Yeah, and if my power was to be Miss Perfect
Priss '94 I wouldn't try to hide it either.
M: But instead you give off
sparks from your hands. You must be quite amusing
Whoa. Cool digs ya got, Banshee. I'm, like,
without speech here.
M: Were that but true.
Climbing trees, M? Isn't that, like, totally
M: As the authority on all
things immature, Jubilee, I'll have to take your
word on that.
M: As I've
said in the past - there is precious little I don't
Okay then. Impress me, rich girl.
M: As I have found in the past,
Jubilee, it doesn't take much to impress you.
Counting to ten without using my fingers usually
Is that a cigarette, dude? I am soooo impressed.
Skin: I have a list of people I
try to impress, chica and surprise, surprise you're
nowhere on it.
flair for the dramatic entrance, Chamber. But if
you think either of us is going to be schooled on
'maturity' by someone standing in the rain, later
for you, man.
All you're missing is a view of me kicking your

gonna go lunar - she loves apples.
Skin: Right. I'm sure she'll hop
right out of bed and start singing Kumbaya.
good man...Angelo Espinosa.
Skin: That's just a rumour I
started. Now shut up so I can eat in peace.
Dragons I have no experience with but bullies?
Mama Espinosa didn't bring up a single one of her
kids to ever back down from a bully.
Grande Dame: Your mother sounds
like a very smart woman.
Skin: That or she raised some
very stupid children.
Life is rude, Monet. Adapt.
Don't gloat child, it's a sign of poor upbringing.
(to Marrow & Hemingway) Tell you what - let
me and the kid go..? You get the first semester
free. You could both stand for a class in 'introduction
to grammar and personal hygiene'.
(to Marrow & Hemingway) Am I safe in assuming

Hardly, Sean. I have a list of people I'd like to
share my nights with. It's a short list. You're
not on it.
