Mahiro Fuwa: To you, life was just something you acted out and ended, all according to someone else's script. That's why you were always quoting Shakespeare... However, Aika, I say that you were wrong! You did what you shouldn't have, and didn't do as you should have. Because you relied on someone else's script, you were wrong. ... I won't live my life by another person's script. Not by "Hamlet" or "The Tempest". I don't know how many years in the future it will be... But I'll write and act my own ending.

Sulya: You asked why I can live in this world. And that's because I have something that fuels me. It's a fuel that will keep me going for the rest of my life. And that's because the last Star Wars film ended on a cliffhanger. In the old world, it was prohibited to read novels or watch movies, let alone make them. But in the next culture... I don't care if it takes tens of thousands of years! I'm going to raise that culture to the exact same level as the era when they made Star Wars... so I can watch the next movie in the franchise! All this destruction is necessary in order to make that possible!

I'd stop a barrage of tennis balls with only my stomach muscles... And while I was at it, I managed to style my hair like a Super Saiyan...
