Quotes by James Madrox (Earth-616)

Quote1 Bizarre. The more dupes I created, the more it "thinned out" Locke's control, until I finally broke free. And all these Hydra agents dead...because of me. Frightening. But the most frightening thing of all...is that I don't feel anything. No regret. no horror. No elation. Just...empty. And that's bad. Very...very...bad. Quote2
--James Madrox (Earth-616)
Quote1 There are days I forget Lorna Dane is the daughter of Magneto, former Top Villain. And then, every so often, something happens to remind me. Quote2
--James Madrox (Earth-616)
Quote1 How do I explain that it's happened to me before! A dupe, right on the edge... and I take him... it's like dying myself, like... like my soul's being torn in half. I don't absorb the wound... but the trauma of what he feels...felt...it's... I just can't. Quote2
--James Madrox (Earth-616)
Quote1 You wanna see when nothing matters? That's when nothing matters. When you're dead. And not a second before. Quote2
--James Madrox (Earth-616)
Quote1 I'm Jamie Madrox, the Multiple Man, mutant-turned-private-detective. As a sideline, I send my dupes out into the world to learn things and then rejoin with me so their knowledge is mine. That way I can experience... well... everything. Quote2
--James Madrox (Earth-616)
Quote1 Frankly, Kitty, I'm figuring they'll do what any of us does: the best they can. Quote2
--James Madrox (Earth-616)
Quote1 Sorry I haven’t been keeping in touch, but dying puts a crimp on one’s correspondence. Quote2
--James Madrox (Earth-616)
Quote1 So what were you thinking? Monkey pile? It's as if you read your own mind! Monkey pile! Quote2
--James Madrox (Earth-616)
Quote1 The whole good/evil blurring probably comes from the fact that guys have stopped labeling themselves. Brotherhoods of Evil are so 1960s. Damned inconsiderate, if you ask me. Quote2
--James Madrox (Earth-616)
Quote1 When faced with an overwhelming threat, the dupes manage to set aside their differences and personality clashes and operate as one. As it turns out, the same can be said for the rest of the team as well. Quote2
--James Madrox (Earth-616)
Quote1 Longshot. My new best friend. ... I want you to go back into that casino and win. ... Everything. Quote2
--James Madrox (Earth-616)
Quote1 You know, for the longest time, I wondered how Thor and his pals, in this day and age, could possibly be considered 'gods.' After all, they live in a world filled with beings who are immortal, or have god like powers. So how do they rate? That's what you think right up until you're in the presence of one of them. Then you totally get it. Quote2
--James Madrox (Earth-616)
Quote1 You never know when you might need X-Factor. Quote2
--James Madrox (Earth-616)
Quote1 I feel like I have the out-of-body experience. I'm looking at something that I can't even begin to understand: Layla and me, lying there dead. This is... it's our wedding night. Our wedding night in the future. And the last thing he... I... said before "we" died was that Rahne was responsible for this slaughter. That only I could stop her. What am I doing here? For that matter, if he's Madrox... who the hell am I? Quote2
--James Madrox (Earth-616)
Quote1 I don't have all the answers, Alex. Not for my "return." Not for X-Factor's status. All I know is this...We're stronger together than apart. Quote2
--James Madrox (Earth-616)
Quote1 ...Sometimes the past is better off left behind. Quote2
--James Madrox (Earth-616)
Quote1 Would it be too portentous to say, "I'm afraid this is just the beginning"? Quote2
--James Madrox (Earth-616)
Quote1 We have a child to raise. A farm to get back up and running. And a world to leave to other people to save. We're done. We're done. Quote2
--James Madrox (Earth-616)
Quote1 We have this. It'll make a nifty paperweight. And maybe there'll be something in it that can lead us to the MLF...like a return address. Quote2
--James Madrox (Earth-616)
Quote1 You're, uh.... you're under arrest. Mmmm. But it doesn't have to be... y'know, immediately. Quote2
--James Madrox (Earth-616)
Quote1 Bizarre. The more dupes I created, the more it "thinned out" Locke's control, until I finally broke free. And all these Hydra agents dead...because of me. Frightening. But the most frightening thing of all...is that I don't feel anything. No regret. no horror. No elation. Just...empty. And that's bad. Very...very...bad. Quote2
--James Madrox (Earth-616)
Quote1 Something tells me this is Siryn's work. Quote2
--James Madrox (Earth-616)
Quote1 There is no hope anymore. Layla is gone. There is no faith anymore. Rahne is gone. Without them, the only thing that remains is taking action, even if it's mindless...and brutal...and designed only to relieve the fury that makes every part of my brain feel like it's on fire. ... No faith, no hope...but I still have compassion. It's the one thing that still separates me from my enemies. Quote2
--James Madrox (Earth-616)
Quote1 Maybe in the end, what makes heroes into heroes...is that we're just too stupid to quit and as result, even in the face of total defeat...we occasionally luck into a win. Quote2
--James Madrox (Earth-616)
Quote1 We talk about the past...and our future...and how the past has this funny habit of becoming the furture if you're not careful...if you forget. Quote2
--James Madrox (Earth-616)
Quote1 She'd known going in that we were mutants. We confided in her because we felt she should know since mutant births can be...unpredictable. But no one could have predicted this. Except...I should have. Quote2
--James Madrox (Earth-616)
Quote1 I'm sick of the world I'm living in, and the only thing that's kept me going is the hope that I could make it better, and I've given up that hope. Quote2
--James Madrox (Earth-616)
Quote1 '"Come with me if you want to live," she said. And the guy who was suicidal seconds earlier opts for life, goes with her and finds himself staring down the barrel of a Sentinel. Weird definition of "living."' Quote2
--James Madrox (Earth-616)
Quote1 Right. Sorry. That...that wasn't very 'noir.' The whole hugging thing. Quote2
--James Madrox (Earth-616)
Quote1 It's not okay. There's no crying in noir. Quote2
--James Madrox (Earth-616)
Quote1 This is what Hell is like. Nobody gets your topical references. Quote2
--James Madrox (Earth-616)

What he just said. It's a great title for, I dunno, something. I love irony.
Conversation Tail

Valeria Richards
It's not irony. Irony entails unintended humor on the speaker's part because he's oblivious to the subtext. That isn't present here. It was, at most, whimsical. It's a common mistake, if that makes you feel any better.
