[after Beast leaps down onto a rooftop, Spider-Man runs over and stands in front of him]
Spider-Man: Beast. What's got you bounding about? Not a Sentinel attack, I hope.
Beast: Greetings, my web-slinging compatriot. I noticed perchance your diurnal patrol and thought I would provide you with information of a practical and necessary nature.
Spider-Man: Thanks for the show of interest, Beast. But I've been doing this for a while now. I think I'm okay.
Beast: Indeed. We shall see. Would you mind telling me what this is?
[Spider-Man's Spider-Compass appears on the screen]
Spider-Man: That's my trusty Spider-Compass. It shows me where to go when I'm out and about.
Beast: Hmm. I do believe you are correct, sir. Since you're so smart, why don't you try following me?
[Beast leaps away and Spider-Man follows after him]

[after Spider-Man runs through a question mark icon, Beast drops down onto a rooftop and crouches next to Spider-Man]

[a blue spider-shaped Webbing icon appears on the screen]
Spider-Man: This gives me more webbing.

[Spider-Man and Beast see a Henchman nearby]

[after Spider-Man defeats a Henchman, Beast appears]
Beast: Superior performance, Spider-Man. Hmm. I'll wage you could use one of *these*?
[Spider-Man notices a white spider-shaped Health icon nearby]

Beast: [quotes Gilbert and Sullivan] "And the brass will crash, and the trumpets bray, / and they'll cut a dash on their wedding day!"

Beast: [the Nasty Boys have abandoned Mr Sinister to the X-Men] Mr Sinister is caught between the proverbial rock and a hard place.


"X-Men: Enter Magneto (#1.3)" (1992)
Beast: Magneto, I presume?

Magneto: [Guards open fire on Magneto and Beast] Are these the people whose laws you trust? They don't seem to share your sense of brotherhood.
Beast: They only fight because they fear us, because they don't yet understand.
Magneto: They do understand. Our mutant powers make us superior. That is why they attack us.
Beast: That is why I must stand trial.
[sits down and reshackles himself]
Beast: They must see that we are not a threat to mankind, but are a part of it.

Beast: Your Honor, we mutants yearn only to live in peace with our human brothers. To paraphrase the Bard, I am a mutant. Hath not a mutant senses, affection, fed by the same food, warm'd and cool'd by the same summer and winter as a human is? If you prick us, do we not bleed?
Judge: Don't tempt these people, Mr. McCoy. Please get to the point.

Beast: Yes. We are only human... for lack of a better expression.

Professor Charles Xavier: Shakespeare?

Rogue: [sarcastically] Yeah, right.
Beast: "There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy."
Rogue: Now that's Shakespeare.


"X-Men: Beyond Good and Evil: Part 3 (#4.10)" (1995)
Cable: He's pure evil, and that's why he's gotta go!

Beast: You had to know it wasn't gonna be that easy. As we've seen, any energy directed at them is multiplied and repulsed... violently.
Professor Charles Xavier: What of the pyramids themselves?
Beast: From what I've learned, both date back to 3000 BC, roughly the same date as Apocalypse's rule in ancient Egypt.
Professor Charles Xavier: Significance?
Beast: We scientists have a special term for that called "I don't know."


"X-Men: The Final Decision (#1.13)" (1993)
Beast: [hanging upside down in a cell, reading] To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow, Creeps in this petty pace from day to day... Ah, the immortal Bard, so wise about the struggle of the oppressed.
[leaps down and lands on his feet]
Beast: Yet, today, by the good graces of a prominent senator, I find myself no longer numbered among them.


Lego Marvel Super Heroes (2013) (VG)

Jean Grey: What does that even mean?


"X-Men: Night of the Sentinels: Part 1 (#1.1)" (1992)
