[Logan throws Noburo off the balcony of his condominium... into a swimming pool]

Yukio: How did you know there's a pool down there?

Logan: I didn't.

[during the credits]

[as Logan checks into an airport, he notices metallic items levitating. Suddenly, he is frozen and is confronted by Magneto]

Logan: What do you want?

Magneto: There are dark forces, Logan. Human forces building a weapon that could bring about the end of our kind. What do I want? I want your help.

Logan: Why would I trust you?

Magneto: You wouldn't.

[Magneto releases Logan. Logan sees that everyone around him is frozen]

Charles Xavier: [wheels up] Hello, Logan.

Logan: How is this possible?

Charles Xavier: As I told you a long time ago, you are not the only one with gifts.

Logan: [about rescuing Mariko] I'm gonna get her.

Harada: We are grateful for your protection of Mariko. But there is one more sacrifice you must make for her family.

Logan: Go fuck yourself, pretty boy!

Mariko: This is Mieko from the hotel and her grandson, Hitoshi.

Logan: Is he a doctor?

Mariko: In a matter of speaking, yes. He's a veterinarian... student. Large animal.

Logan: Thanks.

[Logan tries to shake the boy's hand and the boy draws back fearfully]

Logan: Whoa.

Mariko: You may have cut him once or twice while he was stitching you.

[after Logan is given a bath and haircut by Yashida's servants, he follows Yukio to meet Yashida. He notices her smiling]

Logan: What?

[Yukio continues to smile]

Logan: What?

Yukio: You look nice.

Logan: I feel violated.

[first lines]

[an air raid begins on Nagasaki. At a prison camp, a young lieutenant sets all the prisoners free]

Young Yashida: You! Go! Go!

Logan: [in a pit] That was a B-29, bub. There's no outrunning what's coming. You're better off down here. I'd hurry if I were you.

[Shingen stabs Logan with a katana, to no purpse]

Shingen: What kind of monster are you?

Logan: The Wolverine!

[stabs Shingen]

[last lines]

Yukio: So, have you decided?

Logan: What?

Yukio: Mariko says we can go wherever we want. Just say where.

Logan: What are you doing?

Yukio: I'm your bodyguard. So, where do you want to go?

Logan: Uh... Let's just start with up.

Yukio: And then?

Logan: We'll see.

Yukio: Interesting.

Noburo: Shingen! Shingen!

Logan: Keep going.

Noburo: Since he got sick... old man Yashida spent billions on doctors, healers. Stockpiling adamantium at his lab in the North... secretly trying to prolong his life. He brought the company to the edge of bankruptcy! He was obsessed with you!

[chatters at Yukio in Japanese]

Logan: [punches him] English!

Noburo: Shingen lied, protected the old man... concealed the debt from stockholders and the board. He tried to be a good son and thought he'd be rewarded.

Logan: And then the old man left everything to his granddaughter.

Yukio: [glares at Noburo] If Mariko got all the power, she would dump his ass.

Noburo: It's true... Mariko would have NEVER gone through with the wedding... not once the will was revealed... She never took to me...

Logan: Oh, really? A class act like you?

Noburo: Shingen promised me a fortune for my help.

Logan: So you put a hit on his daughter. Is that it?

Noburo: Political careers do not last forever...

Logan: That's right...

[grabs and hauls Noburo]

Noburo: Wait! Wait! No! You wanted the truth. I TOLD YOU THE TRUTH!

Logan: I didn't like it!

[hurls Noburo through a window]

[Wolverine takes a bottle to the face in a bar]

Logan: Damn. That hurt.

[pulls the glass from his and pops his claws]

Logan: Sorry, Jean.

Yukio: [stops him] I wouldn't bother with them. Most of them will die soon anyway, without your help. Three of them, a week from now in the same truck.

Logan: A lot of people have tried to kill me, and I'm still here.

Yukio: Yeah, but you're different now, aren't you? They can hurt you. They can kill you.

Yukio: You're a soldier, and you seek what all soldiers do.

Logan: And what's that?

Yukio: An honorable death. An end to your pain.

Logan: Who says I'm in pain?

Yukio: A man who has nightmares every night of his life is in pain.

[Yukio leads Logan to the bathroom, where they are greeted by two women behind a hot tub]

Yukio: Shizo and Saki are going to disinfect you. Give you a shave.

Logan: Like hell they are!

[Yukio draws a knife at him]

Yukio: Get in the tub!

Logan: Whoa.

Yukio: Get in the tub!

Logan: Really?

Logan: Your grandfather called me a ronin, a samurai without a master. He said I was destined to live forever, with no reason to live.

Mariko: Was he right?

Logan: Yes.

Mariko: Still?

[they kiss]

Mariko: When I was a little girl, I had nightmares. I'd wake up and run to my parents. My father would get angry. "Go back to bed. Face your fears." My grandfather was different. He told me stories about Kuzuri, his friend. Who he met at the bottom of a well. He said the Kuzuri was magical and saved his life. He said Kuzuri would save me, too, as I slept in my bed. Who's Jean? Is she like you? What happened to her?

Logan: She died. I killed her. Along with the Kuzuri.

Young Yashida: Please. Take it. Thank you.

[gives a katana to Wolverine]

Young Yashida: No. Two hands. Japanese sword require two hands.

Logan: Like that?

Young Yashida: That's it.

Logan: It's beautiful, Yashida. But I can't take it.

Young Yashida: Please. Take it. Thank you.

Logan: Keep it safe. Keep it safe for me. Someday, I'll come get it.

Logan: I said, wait in the car.

Yukio: You need backup. You're not safe, not in your condition. Just think of me as your bodyguard.

Jean Grey: [to Logan] Hey. What are you doing? This isn't going to end well. Everyone you love dies.

Mariko: Am I wrong to think you might visit me soon?

[Mariko and Logan kiss]

Mariko: Stay.

Logan: I can't, Princess. I'm a soldier, and I've been hiding too long.

Logan: You the one who was attacked by the grizzly?

Red Beard: I'm the one that survived.

Logan: I'd like to buy this man a drink.

Red Beard: What's your name, mister?

[Logan sticks an arrow in the man's hand]

Logan: It's Logan. And that's a poison broadhead, which, last I heard, was illegal. Go ahead, ask me where I found it. Ask me.

Red Beard: Where did you find it?

Logan: Well, funny you should ask. I pulled it out of the back a grizzly. Whoever shot it, didn't have wind or the balls to track the animal properly and put it out of its misery. Instead of dropping a lethal dose of the poison it bled into the bear, made him crazy, killed five people.

Red Beard: I don't know what you're talking about. Because I don't dip my arrows in anything.

Logan: In that case, you got nothing to worry about.

[Logan stops Shingen from killing Yukio]

Logan: Don't hurt my friends!

Jean Grey: Can you stay?

Logan: I can't.

Jean Grey: Yes, you can. This is what you wanted.

Logan: Not anymore.

Jean Grey: I'm all alone here. You put me here.

Logan: You were hurting people, Jean. I had to. I love you, Jean. I always will.

Harada: I see you've come to fight. It's pointless. You're weak. You're outnumbered. The Black Clan has protected the House of Yashida for 700 years.

[a horde of ninjas surround Logan]

Logan: Is that all the men you brought?

Viper: I'm sorry, I wish I could say more, but I was hired in part for my discretion.

Logan: I'm sure you were.

Viper: That and a certain talent for combining biochemistry and metaphysics. High-grade toxins are my specialty. It helps to be genetically immune to every poison known to man, as I am. And immune to the toxin that is man himself as I am.

Logan: I'll tell you what, you twisted mutant bitch, why don't you open these bracelets and we'll see who's made of what?

[Logan pops his claws trying to break the bracelets]

Viper: The claws. Now we can begin.

[Logan sees a device on his heart]

Logan: I gotta get this thing out of me!

Yukio: How?... No, Logan. I saw you die. I'm never wrong. I'm never wrong!

Logan: You're not always right. You didn't know the old man was gonna bite it.

Yukio: I saw you die in a room like this with your heart in your hand!

Logan: I can't leave her with those freaks and killers, Yuk. I'm the only chance she's got - but not with that thing inside me!

Yukio: You're going to die, Logan!

Logan: Maybe that's okay...

[he cuts open his chest]

Yukio: No, listen to me, Logan! No! Stop! Logan!

Logan: You're not gonna want to watch this part...

[Logan reaches into his chest for the device on his heart]

Logan: [to Shingen] You tried to kill your daughter. Live with that.

Yukio: I was wrong.

Logan: Told you.

Logan: [sees a picture] This is the guy from the funeral, the archer. He was your boyfriend.

Mariko: That's Harada. We were village champions that summer. He with the bow and me with the knives.

Logan: You said you knew the future of those assholes in the bar.

Yukio: I know they are going to die. We are all going to die.

Logan: You said they would die in the same truck, in a week. If you're right, that's quite a talent.

Yukio: We don't all have claws.

Logan: So, do I die on this plane?

Yukio: No. Not on this plane.

Viper: Now you die!

Yukio: Today is not my day.

[wraps an elevator cable around Viper's neck and drops an elevator down]

[Logan catches Noburo carousing with two strippers]

Logan: Call me old fashioned, but I thought being engaged meant you were done with this kind of bullshit.

Noburo: I am the Minister of Justice. Do you have any idea what I could do to you?

Logan: Really? You're gonna try and talk tough standing there in your red underwear?... You have ten words... TEN words... to explain to me why YOU, the Minister of Justice, would want your fiancée killed by the Yakuza. And if I don't like what you say, you're goin' through that window!

Noburo: You don't have the faintest idea what's going on...

[Logan punches Noburo]

Logan: How many words was that?

Yukio: Nine.

Logan: Nine... You have one word left.

Yashida: Eternity can be a curse. It hasn't been easy for your, living without time. The losses you have had to suffer. A man can run out of things to live for. Lose his purpose. Become a ronin. A samurai without a master. I can end your eternity. Make you mortal.

Logan: What they did to me, what I am, can't be undone.

Yashida: Yashida Industries can do anything. We have reason to believe your ability to heal can be passed.

Logan: Passed?

Yashida: From you to another. You have struggled long enough, Logan.

Logan: I'm confused. I cam here to say goodbye to a man I once knew.

Yashida: I am the same man. I was not ready to die then. I am not ready to die now. But you are, aren't you?

Logan: Are you offering to kill me?

Yashida: No. Not right away. You can live an ordinary life. Fall in love, have a family, grow old. And one day, die an ordinary death. It can be done.

Logan: Yeah, look, nice to see you again. Sorry you got sick.

Yukio: [draws a katana] This sword is hundreds of years old and was named Danzan by the first samurai who used it. Danzan means "separator" in Japanese. The ideal weapon for separating head and limb from body.

Logan: So, where are we headed, Mariko?

[Mariko doesn't answer]

Logan: Where are we going?

Mariko: I'm going to the end of the line. My family has a home in the South.

Logan: That's stupid. No offense, but they're gonna know to look for you there.

Mariko: Not this place.

Logan: Look, you wanna be left alone?

Mariko: Yes.

Logan: I understand.

Mariko: Do you?

Logan: Oh, yeah. Trust me. Problem is, if I do that, I don't think you're gonna live to see the end of the day. You can't pretend shit isn't happening when it is, Princess, unless you want to die. In that case, you're playing this perfectly.

Yukio: [puzzled at Yashida's passing] He's dead... I didn't foresee it...

Logan: Your father was a good man.

Shingen: He would often say the same about you. But then, he was always fascinated with your kind. Tell me, why do you think he sent for our little Yukio to fetch you?

Logan: To say goodbye.

Shingen: And now you have. Time for you to go back to your cave.

Shingen: Your gaijin friend, where is he?

Yukio: Last I saw, he was protecting your daughter.

Shingen: You are a toy doll. A companion for a child who has outgrown you. Keep that in mind

Yukio: When I was five, I knew how my own parents would die. Then I watched it happen from the back seat...

Logan: I'll never hurt you or anyone ever again. I made a vow.

Jean Grey: A solemn vow?

Logan: You're making fun of me.

Jean Grey: It's too late.

[notices he stabbed Jean]

Logan: No! No, Jean! No, no, no! Please!

Jean Grey: You can't hide.

Logan: No, no, no! Please!

Jean Grey: You can't hide!

Logan: No, Jean! No!

Cashier: You're not a hunter, are you?

Logan: Not anymore.

Logan: I was here when it happened. It's how I met your grandfather. We hid in there.

[points to a former bunker]

Mariko: I heard the stories. My grandfather would say what happened was proof that everything in the world finds peace. Eventually. That man can recover from anything. Maybe you, too.

Yukio: Stay away from him.

Shingen: He killed your master, put hands on your sister. And now you want him? You'll always be a beggar.

Yukio: You're crazy.

Logan: Where's Mariko?

Shingen: That Viper bitch took her. It was my father's obsession with mutation, with God's mistakes like you and her, that ruined this house.

Logan: [to the Silver Samurai] You asked me to come say goodbye... Sayonara!

[he throws the Silver Samurai through the wall and over a cliff]

Harada: The mutant has powers.

Viper: He's just a man, now. His flesh is weak now. I did that. I suppressed his power so he could be taken.

Logan: [grabs a sword] Hey! Bub!

[Logan knocks off the Silver Samurai's helmet]

Yukio: I saw you die.

Logan: What?

Yukio: I saw you die.

Logan: What? Just now?

Yukio: A while ago. But it's not like I get a complete picture. More like looking through a keyhole. But I'm always right. All I can see is one part of a person's life... their death. And I saw yours.

Logan: So, what did you see?

Yukio: I see you on your back. There's blood everywhere. You're holding your own heart in your hand. It's not beating.

Logan: [opens car door] I don't have time for this shit.

Yukio: It's a trap, Logan...

Mariko: I am the head of this family now.

Viper: And why do you suppose that is? Why do you think the old man chose you? Because you are strong? Or because you are weak?

Harada: The Viper woman is evil, but we both know that. But she's a mean to an end. An end your grandfather wanted. You need to trust me. Is that hard? We were meant to be together. We still can be.

Mariko: Perhaps.

Logan: Take me to Noburo.

Yukio: Logan...

Logan: Take me to him.

Yukio: I need to tell you something...

Logan: Do it! Now!

Logan: [watching Shingen fight] He's good.

Yukio: He's all right.

[Young Yashida prepares to kill himself]

Logan: [grabs him] Go, now!

[throws Young Yashida into a pit]

Yukio: Why did you go into the bar, if not to seek justice?

Yukio: I've been trying to find you for over a year.

Logan: Why?

Yukio: [refers to samurai sword] To give you that. My employer wanted you to have it.

Logan: Who's your employer?

Yukio: Master Yashida. He said it belongs to you, and that he's paying all debts. Master Yashida is dying. He wants to thank you for saving his life all those years ago. He knows that you are a... busy man. But he very much wants to say his goodbye in person.

Logan: All right, where is he?

Yukio: Tokyo.

Logan: Wait... I'm not going to Japan.

Yukio: It would be dishonorable for you to refuse his request.

Logan: Well, apologize to Mr. Yashida, I'm not going to Tokyo. All right? I've got things to do.

Yukio: Do not apologize. It's been an honor just to meet the Wolverine.

Logan: That's not who I am anymore, you understand?

Logan: So the other night at the house, when you uh... ran out in the rain, what did mean?

Mariko: My grandfather was dying.

Logan: You knew he was gonna die, he'd been sick for a long time.

Mariko: It wasn't his death I feared.

Logan: What then?

Logan: What did he tell you that night? Mariko, why did your father hit you?

Mariko: I was trying to warn him.

Logan: About what? What did your grandfather tell you?

Mariko: He told me... that in three days, when they read his will I will become the most powerful person in Japan. He gave it all to me.

Logan: The company.

Mariko: I didn't want it. He knew that. I don't understand why he gave it to me. It was all my father dreamed of.

Logan: And that's why.

Logan: What about this fiancé of yours, Nostromo?

Mariko: Noburo.

Logan: Does he know about this?

Mariko: No.

Logan: Why are you marrying him? He seems like kind of an asshole.

Mariko: My father arranged it, last year.

Logan: What?

Mariko: It gives him better access to the political theater. To disobey my father would be to dishonor him. I don't expect you to understand. You are not Japanese.

Spoilers 

The quote item below may give away important plot points.

[Logan looks inside the Silver Samurai armor]

Yashida: Logan-san, don't look so shocked. With you at my side, I survived Nagasaki. Surely, I could survive this... It's all right. It won't take long. Dr. Green and I have been waiting. It's only this armor that's kept me alive. We built it to make me strong, so I can take what you would not give. And transfer your unwanted healing to my body. My legacy must be preserved. Your mistake was to believe that a life without end can have no meaning - it is the only life that CAN.

[he begins to start turning younger from the adamantium]

Yashida: Hold on... We are almost there! The peace, the peace you've wanted. Your reward. You know, I'm giving you the very death you longed for. This feeling to be invincible, like you...

Mariko: [stabs Yashida] You are a monster!

Yashida: Mariko, it's me! Your grandfather!

Mariko: [stabs him again] I buried my grandfather!
