Greater than Danger.  
I know I shouldn't be surprised by what the Prof did. Of all of us, I sure as hell know what people, even the supposed "good guys," are capable of. You get to thinkin' that someone's above such deception and cruelty you're liable to get blind-sided when they finally show that they're just as fallible as the rest of humanity.

I knew the professor isn't a damn saint but I didn't let myself think he could do something like this. What bothers me most is that he thought that he was doing the right thing by keepin' Danger captive so that we'd have the edge in our trainin' that her technology brought. And to study her. Got my own pretty friggin' big problems with that, not to mention Pete's which are a whole lot fresher.

Japanese got a saying: Anzuru yori umu ga yasushi. Giving birth to a baby is easier than worrying about it. Meanin' fear is greater than the danger; the professor's fear of being prepared, of preparing us for the ongoin' hostilities between mutants and humans, was greater than the danger of us finding out what he'd done.

All of us here in this jet, and those back at the mansion, have dedicated ourselves to the simple but truest belief there is: We all crave and deserve freedom. Freedom to live, to become who we will. We all have to choose our paths, whether we will stand for good or evil or even remain neutral. Take that basic right away from any living being and you are no better than any of the numerous dictators who slaughtered millions in the name of racial purity.

The confines of the jet suddenly felt too limiting. I was anxious to get back on the ground, to take a long run through the forest.
