    • Allie: (narrating) I never met my grandfather, but my father told me that he was a very brave man. And with all that'd he'd done, maybe because of he'd done, his favorite thing in all the world was to mow the lawn. My dad said he heard his father talking to a neighbor once. The neighbor asked him how he was and what he'd been doing. And my grandfather said, "I've been cutting the grass and watching it grow. Cutting the grass and watching it grow. Life," he said, "is 90 percent maintenance."

    • Allie: (narrating) Sometimes people come to a moment where they think they've found that one last chance to be someone else. And they go for it. When it doesn't work out, they spend the rest of their lives looking back over their shoulder at what might have been.

    • Allie: (narrating) People move through their lives sometimes without really thinking about where they're going. Days pile up, and they get sadder and lonelier without really knowing why they're so sad or how they got so lonely. Then something happens. They meet someone who looks a certain way, or has something in their smile. Maybe that's all that falling in love is, finding someone who makes you feel a little less alone.

    • Allie: (narrating) What makes a man who he is? Is it the worst things he's ever done, or the best things he wants to be? When you find yourself in the middle of your life, and you're nowhere near where you were going, how do you find a way from the person you've become to the one you know you could've been?

    • Allie: (narrating) When everything in your life is right on track, it's easy to believe that things happen for a reason. It's easy to have faith. But when things start to go wrong, then it's very hard to hold on to that faith. It's hard not to wonder whose reasons these things happen for.

    Notes (1)

    • Three guest stars from 'Taken' have now been on X-Men 2. The first one is James Kirk, who played young Jesse Keys and in the film played Bobby's brother Ronny. The other two do not have actual lines in the film but are obvious. The first is Young Becky who played either the girl who screams are really really loud or the girl who runs through walls- in the film she can be seen in the museum behind Xavier. The third is young Charlie- he plays a mutant... you can see him in the underground base when they're trying to escape and the water is flooding the place....he is the boy who stands in front of the door Wolverine closes.
