As we all know, ‘Logan’ (2017)  marked the final appearance of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. With nine movies over 17 years, Jackman’s wolverine has given us some iconic moments and unforgettable quotes to remember for a very long time.

Here are the best of Wolverine quotes that prove he is the best X-Men ever and how badass he is. Enjoy!

1. You picked the wrong house, Bub.

This is from one of the scenes in X2: X-Men United, the second movie of the X-Men franchise where Stryker sends his special force to the X-Men mansion and they encounter Logan. This is a quote by him is when he takes on Styker’s men. When the people he cares about are hurt, then he loses his cool, and then he is unstoppable.

2. Patience isn't my strongest suit.

In X-Men: Days of Future Past, Wolverine is sent to the past to turn events that shouldn’t have happened. Before going to the past, Professor X asks Wolverine to be patient with his younger self, as in those days he was depressed. Wolverine then admits that being patient is not who he is.

3. You know, sometimes when you cage the beast, the beast gets angry.

In X-Men: The Last Stand, Jean has her Dark Pheonix unleashed. Wolverine learns that Charles was trying to heal her by keeping it within her. That made things worse.
Wolverine’s warning to Charles is an example of how he knows the consequences of trying to control a dangerous person.

4. Nature made me a freak. Man made me a weapon. And God made it last too long.

Wolverine had gone through a lot in his past. And years later in ‘Logan’, he is a broken man. The film did a great job by showing how all his power had become a curse! 

5. So.. this is what it feels like.

Probably the most emotional scene as we had to see Wolverine passing away. The film ‘Logan’ was a perfect film to say goodbye to one of the best X-Men ever. This was the moment where we finally understood ‘death’, something he had escaped from throughout his long life. He passed away holding Laura’s hand in a heart-breaking moment.  

6. Go F*** yourself.

Wolverine was always straight-forward. In his cameo in X-men: First Class, Charles, and Erik try to recruit him, and with a one-line reply, the scene turned out to be one of the standout moments in the franchise.

7. I’m the best there is at what I do but what I do best isn’t very nice.

This classic line comes from the Wolverine comics. It perfectly suited the character of Wolverine. Hugh Jackman finally got the opportunity to say this iconic line in X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

8. I come with you, I'm coming for blood. No law, no code of conduct.

Wolverine is truly a dangerous person. He’s had a long life with so much violence that turned him into an animal. In X-Men Origins: Wolverine, when recruited to capture his half-brother Victor, Logan tells this to William Stryker. He loves getting things done in his own way.  

9. The pain lets you know you’re still alive.

Being a mutant, Wolverine has never known what death is but he’s gone through a lot of pain, whether it was physical or emotional. This Wolverine quote makes a lot of sense. You only suffer when you’re alive; Dead people don’t.

10. I’m gonna cut your head off. See if that works.

This is when the Wolverine goes to encounter his half-brother Sabretooth for murdering his love interest. This was more than what logan could take and decides to kill Sabretooth. 
Even though the fight didn’t go Logan’s way, he at least fought for the honour of his love. Though he’s a mutant, he was more of a human.

11. Don't be what they made you.

His final words of wisdom to this daughter, before he left the world. Logan was supposed to be a monster, but he decided to be a hero. Similarly, she didn’t have to turn to be a monster, which she was designed to be.  

12. Then we stand together... X-Men, all of us.

Wolverine prefers to get things done by himself but here he finally took up the role to lead the six remaining X-Men for a fight in honour of Charles and Cyclops

13.  Your best is enough. Trust me.

Wolverine stepped up to Charles to provide some guidance. Charles was the only person, Wolverine had respect for. In this scene from X-Men: Days of Future Past, Wolverine assures the younger Charles that the future needs him.

14. Fill your heart with better memories. Better actions. Better friends.

This is one of the best Wolverine quotes. Problems in life could easily be handled when you have great friends and people who bring the best out of you. Being a mutant, Wolverine also had the thinking of a human, searching for peace. This is a quote from the comics.

15. Grow those back.

In X-Men: The Last Stand, Wolverine encounters a mutant with an odd power. The mutant could regenerate his limbs. Every time Wolverine cut it off, he grew it back again. Wolverine finally kicks his testicles and challenged him to grow those back. The mutant was done on the floor.

16. Okay, Suckers. You've taken your best shot! Now it's my turn.

One of the iconic Wolverine quotes from the comics. It’s sad that this quote didn’t make it to the X-Men movies.

17. Looks like Stryker finally found A way to shut you up.

This was before the face-off between Wolverine and Weapon X at the climax of 
X-Men: Origins: Wolverine. Wade Wilson who turned into Weapon X, was someone who kept talking and annoyed Wolverine. He utters this line when he sympathizes with what Wade had become.

18. What's a Magneto?

Wolverine stepped up to Charles to provide some guidance. Charles was the only person, Wolverine had respect for. In this scene from X-Men: Days of Future Past, Wolverine assures the younger Charles that the future needs him.

19. No, for you!

His final words to Jean, the woman he loved before killing her in X-Men: The Last Stand. Even though it killed Wolverine inside, he did it for Jean’s soul so that she could set herself free from the Phoenix’s corrupt influence.

20.  I'm Canadian.

In X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Stryker comes to Canada to recruit Logan to work for the US Government. Wolverine patriotically responds, embarrassing his true citizenship.
