It is always pleasant to see fresh faces taking over the beloved characters in a motion picture's reboot or sequel but when you noticed some familiar scenes or lines that you've already seen from the first movie will just make you feel nostalgic.

In the second trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse, there was a scene where Erik (Michael Fassbender) seems to be talking to Charles and he said:

Doesn't it ever wake you up in the middle of the night, the feeling that someday they'll come for you, and your children?

It is not clear yet if he was talking about Apocalypse or the government that has always been their enemy in all of their films. However, Charles (James McAvoy) only replied with:

I feel a great swell of pity for the poor soul that comes to my school looking for trouble.

What an awesome throwing of lines, right?

But did you know that those lines were (almost) the exact same phrases Charles (Patrick Stewart) and Erik (Ian McKellen) said to each other in the last part of the first X-Men (2000) film when they were playing chess inside Magneto's plastic prison where he was being held after what he did in Liberty Island.

Doesn't it wake you in the middle of the night, the feeling that someday they will pass that foolish law, or one just like it, and come for you? And your children?

Erik asked Charles, referring to the Mutant Registration Act that was proposed by Senator Kelly that will require all mutants to register to the government.

Professor X replied with, "It does indeed." and Magneto asked him if what does he do when he wakes up to that.

I feel a great swell of pity for the poor soul that comes to that school looking for trouble.

Charles responded.

Amazing, isn't it? Well, catch the X-Men as they battle the ancient god Apocalypse in X-Men: Apocalypse in theatres this upcoming 18th of May.
