~X-Men $Erik Lehnsherr *5 Square Who are you?

~X-Men $Erik Lehnsherr *5 Square You were in my head! How did you do that?
~X-Men $Charles Xavier *6 Square 2 You have your tricks, I have mine. I'm like you. Just calm your mind!
~X-Men $Erik Lehnsherr *5 Square I thought I was alone.
~X-Men $Charles Xavier *6 Square 2 You're not alone. Erik, you're not alone.
— Charles having stopped Erik from trying to kill Shaw
~X-Men $Charles Xavier *6 Square 2 From what I know about you, I'm surprised you managed to stay this long.
~X-Men $Erik Lehnsherr *5 Square What do you know about me?
~X-Men $Charles Xavier *6 Square 2 Everything.
~X-Men $Erik Lehnsherr *5 Square Then you'll know to stay out of my head.
~X-Men $Erik Lehnsherr *5 Square *turns to leave*
~X-Men $Charles Xavier *6 Square 2 I'm sorry, Erik. But I've seen what Shaw did to you. I felt your agony. I can help you.
~X-Men $Erik Lehnsherr *5 Square I don't need your help.
~X-Men $Charles Xavier *6 Square 2 Don't kid yourself. You needed my help last night. It's not just me you're walking away from. Here you have the chance to be part of something much bigger than yourself. I won't stop you leaving. I could, but I won't.
~X-Men $Charles Xavier *6 Square 2 *turns to go back inside*
~X-Men $Charles Xavier *6 Square 2 Shaw's got friends. You could do with some.
— Charles trying to persuade Erik from leaving.
~X-Men $Charles Xavier *6 Square 2 Erik! You decided to stay.
~X-Men $Erik Lehnsherr *5 Square If a new species is being discovered, it should be by its own kind. Charles and I find the mutants. No suits.
Man In Black Suit First of all, that's my machine out there. Second of all, much more importantly, this is Charles's decision. Charles is fine with the CIA being involved. Isn't that right?
~X-Men $Charles Xavier *6 Square 2 No. I'm sorry, but I'm with Erik. We'll find them alone.
— Erik and Charles debating with CIA of Cerebro.
~X-Men $Erik Lehnsherr *5 Square What an adorable lab rat you make, Charles.
~X-Men $Charles Xavier *6 Square 2 Don't spoil this for me, Erik.

— Erik pushing Sean Cassidy off of the antenna.
~X-Men $Charles Xavier *6 Square 2 Mmm. No, that won't be necessary. Although I'm sure it would be magical.

— Erik and Charles recruiting Angel Salvadore.
~X-Men $Erik Lehnsherr *5 Square Excuse me, I'm Erik Lehnsherr.

*Erik and Charles looks at each other as they leave*
— Erik and Charles attempting to recruit Logan.
~X-Men $Erik Lehnsherr *5 Square I'm telling you, these kids are not ready for Shaw.
~X-Men $Charles Xavier *6 Square 2 I think they're gonna surprise you. They're an exceptional bunch of young people.
— Erik pushing Sean Cassidy off of the antenna.

— Erik and Charles lecturing the kids.

~X-Men $Erik Lehnsherr *5 Square *lets go*
— Erik and Charles lecturing the kids.
~X-Men $Charles Xavier *6 Square 2 They're just kids.
~X-Men $Erik Lehnsherr *5 Square No. They were kids. Shaw has his army. We need ours.

~X-Men $Charles Xavier *6 Square 2 We'll have to train. All of us. Yes?
— Erik convincing Charles to keep the kids.
~X-Men $Sean Cassidy *1 Square This is yours?

— Charles showing the others the mansion.
~X-Men $Charles Xavier *6 Square 2 You sure?

~X-Men $Charles Xavier *6 Square 2 Got it.
~X-Men $Charles Xavier *6 Square 2 *goes to pull the trigger, but stops himself*
~X-Men $Charles Xavier *6 Square 2 No! No, I can't! I'm sorry. I can't shoot anybody in point blank, let alone my friend.
~X-Men $Erik Lehnsherr *5 Square Oh, come on! You know I can deflect it.
~X-Men $Erik Lehnsherr *5 Square *takes Charles's hand that's holding the gun and points the gun at his head again*
~X-Men $Erik Lehnsherr *5 Square You're always telling me I should push myself.
~X-Men $Charles Xavier *6 Square 2 If you know you can deflect it, then you're not challenging yourself! Whatever happened to the man who's... who's trying to raise a submarine?
~X-Men $Erik Lehnsherr *5 Square Well, I can't! Something that big, I...I need the situation, the anger.
~X-Men $Charles Xavier *6 Square 2 No, the anger is not enough.
~X-Men $Erik Lehnsherr *5 Square Well, it's gotten the job done all this time.

— Erik and Charles training.

~X-Men $Charles Xavier *6 Square 2 I accessed the brightest corner of your memory system. It's a very beautiful memory, Erik. Thank you.
~X-Men $Erik Lehnsherr *5 Square I didn't know I still had that.
~X-Men $Charles Xavier *6 Square 2 There's so much more to you than you know. Not just pain and anger. There's good to you, I felt it. And when you can access all that, you'll posses a power no one can match. Not even me.
— Charles trying to help Erik gain control over his powers.
~X-Men $Charles Xavier *6 Square 2 Shaw's declared war on mankind. On all of us. He has to be stopped.
~X-Men $Erik Lehnsherr *5 Square I'm not gonna stop Shaw. I'm gonna kill him. Do you have it in you to allow that?
~X-Men $Charles Xavier *6 Square 2 *doesn't answer*
— Charles and Erik discussing how to proceed.
~X-Men $Erik Lehnsherr *5 Square You've known all along why I was here, Charles. But things have changed. What started as a covert mission, tomorrow mankind will know that mutants exist. Shaw, us, they won't differentiate. They'll fear us. And that fear will turn to hatred.
~X-Men $Charles Xavier *6 Square 2 Not if we stop a war. Not if we can prevent Shaw. Not if we risk our lives doing so.
~X-Men $Erik Lehnsherr *5 Square Will they do the same for us?
~X-Men $Charles Xavier *6 Square 2 We have it in us to be the better men.
~X-Men $Erik Lehnsherr *5 Square We already are! We're the next stage of human evolution. You said it yourself?
~X-Men $Charles Xavier *6 Square 2 No. No!
~X-Men $Erik Lehnsherr *5 Square Are you really so naive, as to think that they won't battle their own extinction? Or is it arrogance?
~X-Men $Charles Xavier *6 Square 2 I'm sorry?
~X-Men $Erik Lehnsherr *5 Square After tomorrow, they're gonna turn us. But you're blind to it, because you believe they're all like Moira.
~X-Men $Charles Xavier *6 Square 2 You believe they're all like Shaw.
— Charles and Erik discussing how to proceed.
~X-Men $Charles Xavier *6 Square 2 Listen to me very carefully my friend. Killing Shaw will not bring you peace.
~X-Men $Erik Lehnsherr *5 Square Peace was never an option.
— Charles and Erik discussing Erik's plans.
~X-Men $Erik Lehnsherr *5 Square *finds the naked Raven in his bed*
~X-Men $Erik Lehnsherr *5 Square Well, this is a surprise.
~X-Men $Mystique *1 Square The nice kind?
~X-Men $Erik Lehnsherr *5 Square Get out, Raven. I wanna go to bed.
— Erik rejecting Raven's advances (out-of-context).

~X-Men $Charles Xavier *6 Square 2 What? He's got to be there! He has to be! There's no where else he can be! Keep looking!
~X-Men $Erik Lehnsherr *5 Square And I'm telling you he's not! There's no one here, Goddammit!
— Charles and Erik arguing as they're looking through the sub.
~X-Men $Erik Lehnsherr *5 Square *enters the void*
~X-Men $Charles Xavier *6 Square 2 He's gone!

— Charles losing contact with Erik.
~X-Men $Charles Xavier *6 Square 2 *speaking telepathically*

~X-Men $Sebastian Shaw *1 Square But everything I did, I did for you. To unlock your power. To make you embrace it.
~X-Men $Sebastian Shaw *1 Square *throws Erik into a wall, cracking it*
~X-Men $Charles Xavier *6 Square 2 It's working! I'm starting to see him. But I can't yet touch his mind.
— Charles and Erik discovering how to fight Shaw.
~X-Men $Erik Lehnsherr *5 Square Everything you did, made me stronger. Made me the weapon I am today. It's the truth. I've known it all along. You are my creator.

~X-Men $Charles Xavier *6 Square 2 Erik, please! Be the better man! You have it-
~X-Men $Erik Lehnsherr *5 Square *takes Shaw's helmet*
~X-Men $Erik Lehnsherr *5 Square It's not that I don't trust you.
~X-Men $Charles Xavier *6 Square 2 Erik, there will be no turning back!
~X-Men $Erik Lehnsherr *5 Square *dons Shaw's helmet*
— Charles and Erik fighting Shaw.
~X-Men $Charles Xavier *6 Square 2 *sees what Erik is doing through Shaw's mind*
~X-Men $Charles Xavier *6 Square 2 No! Please, Erik! No!
~X-Men $Erik Lehnsherr *5 Square I'm going to count to three. And I'm going to move the coin.
~X-Men $Erik Lehnsherr *5 Square *releases the coin, which starts to float towards Shaw*

Daily Telegraph In a fab montage, the pair go on a recruiting drive, in which they perch on a strip-club bed.
$James McAvoy *1 Square "That scene got exceptionally silly at one point," says McAvoy. "I don't know if I'm even allowed to tell you what originally happened. But it got pretty f---in' kinky. I'm not joking."
Daily Telegraph Was the dashing duo's bromance, uh, consummated?
$James McAvoy *1 Square Unfortunately no. But there was a little bit of cross-dressing going on. That's all you need to know.
Daily Telegraph (For the record, McAvoy would have preferred it if Xavier and Magneto stayed together. Like, really together. "It is a little bit of a mini-tragedy that him and Magneto don't, you know, have sex and become married and become best friends.")
— http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/james-mcavoy-is-a-classy-man/story-fn6ccx45-1226067086143
The only thing that matches the strength of their bond is the strength of their belief in separate ideals. And ultimately, one of them pays the price. Both emotionally and physically.
James McAvoy
"Michael Fassbender is incredible, and really strong—and sexy.” McAvoy added that he and Fassbender decided to work out the textures of their on-screen relationship to give the film heart and make it “more than an action movie."
James McAvoy, http://www.sundance.tv/blog/2011/05/james-mcavoy-is-a-first-class-x-man/
He’s [Xavier] just been paralyzed and he’s been betrayed by the person who he’s probably come to care about more than anybody else in the world, and he’s the guy who did it to him.
James McAvoy, http://collider.com/james-mcavoy-arthur-christmas-trance-filth-shameless-interview/127404/
It’s kind of a love story, like “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” which, really, was a love story between two men. This is the first time in their lives they’ve met someone who is an equal of sorts, someone who understands them and can connect and push them too.
James McAvoy, http://herocomplex.latimes.com/movies/x-men-first-class-james-mcavoy-calls-it-a-love-story-like-butch-and-sundance/
Um, no offense, but you're wrong. I helped write the movie, and can tell you the gay rights/ post-holocaust Jewish identity / civil rights allegory stuff was all put in there on purpose. Joss Whedon designed the whole "Cure" storyline in the comic books specifically as a gay allegory, and Bryan Singer wove his own feelings of outsiderdom as a gay man into the movie series. The whole "Have you ever tried NOT being a mutant" coming out scene in X2 isn't even particularly subtle, while it is effective.
Zack Stentz
If the story between Charles and Erik is on some level this… you know, tragic romance, you’ve got to arrange the other elements in that way too.
Ashley Miller, X-Men: First Class Blu Ray special features
I think the movie would be less interesting, and much less fun, without [the romantic throughline]. I'm not sure, however, that the majority of moviegoers necessarily recognize the gay love affair, coded as it is, but I do think they'd notice its absence. The late, great Vito Russo (The Celluloid Closet) would probably agree with this assertion, seeing as he found these kinds of coded gay relationships informing so many mainstream films over the decades.
—Professor William Earnest, http://uk.eonline.com/news/250480/magneto-and-professor-x-had-sex-at-the-movies-this-summer-did-you-see-it
With this not-always-subtle subtext established, finding ways to play with it is easy—a task made even easier by the fact that it's homoerotic, not homosexual in the literal sense, so it's about desire, tension, and, above all, unrequited love. No clothes have to come off, and so far as we know, they don't. But there are looks, body language, conversations, and above all, intimacy...The chess scene aside, from the standpoint of sexual imagery, I think the 'satellite dish' [scene] is the film's richest.
—Professor William Earnest, http://uk.eonline.com/news/250480/magneto-and-professor-x-had-sex-at-the-movies-this-summer-did-you-see-it
If First Class was Eric’s story and Days Of Future Past is Charles’s story, then Apocalypse will be both of their stories. The first movie was about Eric becoming empowered. That’s the origin story of a man’s power. Days Of Future Past is about a guy who is a mess, masterminding the end of this massive movie. So they are both at their peak powers at the start of Apocalypse, so Apocalypse for me is culmination of that three-act love story.
Simon Kinberg, writer of First Class and Days of Future Past, http://www.empireonline.com/features/days-of-future-past-secrets-explained/p11
