QUOTES:

“It was like a good version of how they foisted Gambit on us. They knew they wanted to jam some character up our butts, and they were like, ‘Okay, here’s the lube, here’s some relaxing Enya music, we’re gonna do this consensually and cool and you’re gonna like it, I promise.’”

“Jubilee had so been positioned as the new Kitty. They basically were like, ‘We need a new young, plucky teen for Logan to mentor!’”

“I’m a Hebrew school dropout who didn’t get a Bar Mitzvah, and I celebrated Christmas growing up because it was more fun.”

“Let’s also talk about the fact that she has a dragon who is, like, her buddy.”

“It’s almost like you swim the English Channel, and you grab f’’king Colossus, then you swim back. That’s what she did.”

“He cheats on his underage girlfriend with an alien he meets.”
