Default Re: Favorite moment in the trilogy?

I have a lot of favorite scenes, mostly from the first two movies. It would be difficult to choose just one, and while I enjoy a lot of the action scenes and power displays throughout the trilogy, my favorite scene could probably be narrowed down to one featuring both McKellen's Magneto and Stewart's Professor Xavier.


A young Magneto in the concentration camp
Wolverine in the cage
Xavier and Magneto at the Senate hearing
“What is this place?” montage
Cyclops, Jean Grey, and Wolverine in Wolverine’s bedroom
Cyclops talking to a comatose Professor Xavier
The X-Jet emerging from the basketball court and flying under the bridge
Storm obliterating Toad
Wolverine and Jean Grey in the subbasement
Magneto and Professor Xavier playing chess in Magneto’s plastic prison

X2: X-Men United:

The White House attack
X-Men at the museum
Cyclops, Jean Grey, Storm, and Professor Xavier in Xavier's office, discussing the White House attack
Professor Xavier and Wolverine in Cerebro
The Mansion raid, especially the cameos by Kitty Pryde, Siryn, and Colossus
Pyro attacking the police officers and Rogue stopping him
The dog chase sequence, including the first real glimpse of Jean Grey’s expanding power and Nightcrawler saving Rogue
Magneto’s escape
The X-Men, Magneto, and Mystique in the forest and in the X-Jet
Mystique infiltrating Stryker’s lair, cutting through his soldiers, and flipping them off as she leaves
Cyclops v. Jean Grey
Magneto approaching and rearranging Cerebro
Jean Grey’s sacrifice
Professor Xavier discussing Jean Grey's sacrifice with Cyclops and Wolverine and later sensing Jean's survival
Jean Grey’s voiceover, while the Phoenix emerges from Alkali Lake

X-Men: The Last Stand:

Cyclops grieving in his bedroom, haunted by images of Jean Grey
Jean Grey/Dark Phoenix in the subbasement
Jean Grey/Dark Phoenix, Magneto, and Professor Xavier at the Grey household

…the only three scenes I care to watch anymore.
