Quotes by Jean Grey (Earth-616)

Quote1 Who are you? Don't I deserve to know who it is who is going to kill me? Why are you hesitating? I know you... Don't I? Something...in your eyes...so familiar -- Quote2
--Jean Grey (Earth-616)
Quote1 I'm glad I met you. Welcome to the X-Men. Quote2
--Jean Grey (Earth-616)
Quote1 "But the love Scott and I share was enough to pull us through then and through the ages, no matter where we are, it always will be. Quote2
--Jean Grey (Earth-616)
Quote1 We come into this world alone and we leave the same way. The time we spent in between - time spent alive, sharing, learning together... is all that makes life worth living. Quote2
--Jean Grey (Earth-616)
Quote1 Scott... be straight with me. I haven't tried reading your mind. You didn't sleep with Emma when you were both in Hong Kong did you? Quote2
--Jean Grey (Earth-616)
Quote1 I don't want you to get hurt, but you have to understand... The more you annoy me the more I can't help thinking about deconstructing you, molecule by molecule, memory by memory... until there's nothing left but screaming, traumatized atoms. Quote2
--Jean Grey (Earth-616)
Quote1 Professor X tried to kill his twin sister while they were both still in the womb. We ought to talk... Quote2
--Jean Grey (Earth-616)
Quote1 Shh. Stop talking. You have to let go of all that now. It's time to die, Charles. It's all right. Let go. Die, Charles. I'm going to catch you. Quote2
--Jean Grey (Earth-616)
Quote1 But the fire of the Phoenix burns through lies, you understand? The gaze of the Phoenix is like an x-ray tearing through every self-deception. So burn, Emma Quote2
--Jean Grey (Earth-616)
Quote1 I know everybody's worried about me, Hank. Everybody thinks the Phoenix Force is turning me into some kind of cosmic destroyer, but it's not like that. I have trouble with the rushes, but I'm okay, really. I think I can make things right here. This isn't the first time Emma's been disembodied. So I'm thinking I could maybe fuse the diamond molecules together telekinetically. Maybe I'm over-reaching... Can you think of a pink door opening, Hank? Thanks. Okay. I'm reading all those medical textbooks from your memory. I wouldn't want to put her heart in the wrong place. She loves him, Hank. Emma has actually fallen in love with my husband. It's almost funny. Wake up, Emma. Scott needs you. Wake up. Quote2
--Jean Grey (Earth-616)
Quote1 Live, Scott. Live. All I ever did was die on you. Quote2
--Jean Grey (Earth-616)
Quote1 He has plunged the people of Earth into a trance! If we allow the trance to fully take hold, humanity will be lost to us forever! Quote2
--Jean Grey (Earth-616)
Quote1 You lose, Sinister. This is my mind -- my soul -- my life -- and I mean to keep them to myself! Quote2
--Jean Grey (Earth-616)
Quote1 I'm sorry Forge... Sean can't speak for himself right now. I'm afraid, since you saw us last... there have been some changes. Quote2
--Jean Grey (Earth-616)
Quote1 Look at what you've done to this man, Peter... look at the face of the future -- and then say a prayer for us all. Quote2
--Jean Grey (Earth-616)
Quote1 Jubilee, we come into the world alone -- and we leave the same way... the time we spend in-between... time spent alive, sharing, learning... together... is all that makes life worth living. Quote2
--Jean Grey (Earth-616)
Quote1 You constantly remember Phoenix, Scott. And Madelyne Pryor. There are all these negative images of women who you thought were me at various times, and all their memories are marching around your mind wearing this outfit. But I'm here with you, I'm standing right in front of you, and I'm tired of their ghosts. I claimed the name "Phoenix" as part of a plan to claim this identity. To empower myself. I'm tired of suppressing my abilities just because I'm afraid that exploring them might upset you. Quote2
--Jean Grey (Earth-616)
Quote1 I know your heart is in the right place, Scott - that you're only doing exactly what you think Charles would do - but sometimes you make me want to reach inside that tight little mind of yours and shake loose some consideration! Quote2
--Jean Grey (Earth-616)
Quote1 No, stop -- stop -- Listen to me, all of you! Scott's still alive, inside Apocalypse... but his body can't handle the forces at play here! Quote2
--Jean Grey (Earth-616)
Quote1 I'm not my mother. I'm not Phoenix. I'm my own woman... and before I'm done... they'll wish I were the Phoenix. Quote2
--Jean Grey (Earth-616)
Quote1 There is no time for talk, my friends. You must flee back to the safety of your own minds. All of you, immediately. The only thing now that can save Logan's soul...is the fire of the 'Phoenix. Quote2
--Jean Grey (Earth-616)
Quote1 Let's go for a walk... so you can pay your respects... and show me the place where your Phoenix died. Quote2

--Jean Grey (Earth-616)
Quote1 Iceman -- try ice balls! Quote2
--Jean Grey (Earth-616)

--Jean Grey (Earth-616)
Quote1 Fools! You dare to trifle with the Phoenix? Quote2
--Jean Grey (Earth-616)
Quote1 Cut the baloney, Scott! You and me... we've got some serious talking to do! Quote2
--Jean Grey (Earth-616)
Quote1 I can't believe you two. While you're arguing about fashion, Jameson's ramping up anti-mutant hysteria just to sell papers! Quote2
--Jean Grey (Earth-616)
Quote1 He's okay because he's Scott... ...and he never lets his guard down. Quote2
--Jean Grey (Earth-616)

--Jean Grey (Earth-616)

--Jean Grey (Earth-616)
Quote1 Iceman! Stop that you juvenile Jerry Lewis! Quote2
--Jean Grey (Earth-616)
Quote1 Hear me, X-Men! No longer am I the woman you knew! I am fire! And life incarnate! Now and forever -- I am PHOENIX! Quote2
--Jean Grey (Earth-616)
Quote1 Scott, am I worth it? I destroyed a world–in my mind, I can still hear the screams of the dying–and it felt good! I don’t want that feeling ever again. And yet–I do! Quote2
--Jean Grey (Earth-616)
Quote1 Tomorrow, I must leave the X-Men--forever! Quote2
--Jean Grey (Earth-616)
Quote1 He's back...and, he seems stronger...more dangerous than ever! Quote2
