X-Men - Was It Bobby or Scott?
In the scene with Rogue sitting on the bench at the academy (after being stabbed by Wolverine), Bobby come up and tells her to leave. She turns around and you hear her say "Bobby", but if you look closely (it might help to turn the volume down), you can tell that she actually says "Scott". My guess is that they had originally planned on having Cyclops (Scott Summers) tell her to split, but they wanted people to know that it was Mystique. So, they thought of the eye change thing. Now, if it were Scott, he'd be wearing his glasses, so... substitute Bobby.

There's just one small problem with this theory: Rogue is looking right at Bobby as she presumably says "Scott," and it's not a matter of rewriting the scene between shots - Sean Ashmore is already on screen when she says the name. If there was ever an intention to have Cyclops pack her off, it had to have been changed before the camera started rolling. And if she'd said "Scott" at that point, the director would have said "CUT!" The "Bobby" IS an over-dub, but not to change what she says. Either the mic didn't pick up her voice very well (not uncommon in an outdoor scene) or she didn't enunciate, so they had to re-record it. She DOES say "Bobby," but she says it a little differently than she does for the dub, and the lip-syncing is way off.
