Fun Stuff

From X-Men: First Class (2011)
Sebastian Shaw: I hear you blocked the proposal to position nuclear missiles in Turkey. I expect you'll reconsider.
Colonel Hendry: We've had this conversation. You put our nukes in Turkey or anywhere that close to Russia, and you're looking at war. Nuclear war.
Sebastian Shaw: I don't ask for favors, Colonel. I express my expectations. So, let me say it again. I EXPECT you'll reconsider.
Colonel Hendry: The only thing I'll reconsider is having another glass of that delicious champagne.
[Shaw motions to Riptide, who creates a miniature tornado which blows Hendry across the room. Shaw, Riptide and Emma Frost round on him]
Emma Frost: [Telepathically] You thinking of running? Hiding? We'd find you, Hendry. There's not a fortress in the world that could keep us out.
[Shaw motions to Emma, who turns into her diamond form to intimidate Hendry]
Sebastian Shaw: Magnificent, isn't she, Bob? Genetic mutation. The evolution of the human genome. Where's Azazel?
[Emma whistles loudly. Azazel teleports into the room]
Sebastian Shaw: Ah, we don't want the colonel to be late.
