|“|| Jill: What a kill count, and on only her third mission. Not bad, not bad.
Maggy: No one could use that machine well, and then she does it so effortlessly.
Mei: The Villkiss must have accepted Ange.
Salia: So then she's-
Jill: Shall we begin, then? The Libertus. Got a problem with that, Salia?
Salia: She'll die immediately.
Maggy: She is the villain that killed their captain and their beloved new recruits. Of course they hate her.
Salia: I could do it. I'll show you. I can handle the Villkiss better. So why?
Jill: The right person for the job. If something happens to the Villkiss-
Mei: I'll fix it if it comes to that. I'll stake my life on it. That's our duty, after all.
Jill: Focus on your own duty. Got it, Salia? Good girl.
Maggy: Things are going to get busy now, huh?
Jill: Again, don't get cocky. Especially towards the officer.
Jasmine: "Good girl", huh? You're a sly woman, aren't you?
Jill: I'll use whatever I can. Feelings,lives. I'm already in hell.
|“||You worry too much, Dad. Don't worry, I've learned how to do my job, and I'm getting used to the Norma. So long as I keep my eye on them, not a single Norma is going to step out of line.||”|
—Emma to her dad
|“|| Emma: S-Stop! You, why are you dressed like that?
Ange: It's my uniform.
Emma: I will not allow you to dress in a way that disturbs this base's order. Fix it or buy a new one, immediately. That's an order.
Emma: "Understood, Officer" Don't forget your salutes. Really. Are you not embarrassed to dress so shamelessly?
Ange: Are you embarrassed when a bug sees you naked? Excuse me.
—Emma to Ange
|“|| Hilda: You're telling us to stop over that? Maybe a good girl like you could, but not the rest of us ordinary people. What the hell is Command thinking? Her only punishment was being put in that crappy machine. Ah I bet Command likes her, too. I guess then I can understand why. Smooth-talking that Commander... Impressive. Her Majesty the Princess must be good in bed, too.
Salia: That's insubordination.
Hilda: And if it is?
Salia: I won't let you mess with Ange any more.
Hilda: You're defending her, when she looks at you like you're a bug?
Salia: That's an order.
Hilda: Fine Captain.
—Hilda arguing with Salia
|“||You promised, Jill, that you'd give me that machine.||”|
Notes & Trivia

- Various armaments and design features from the ZGMF-X10A Freedom Gundam of Mitsuo Fukuda's Mobile Suit Gundam SEED; its signature blue and black wing binders, Xiphias plasma cannons, and its beam rifle.
- Also featuring from Mobile Suit Gundam SEED is the shield shared by many of the mobile suits, notably the GAT-X105 Strike Gundam, MBF-02 Strike Rouge, and the MBF-P0x Gundam Astray Blue/Red/Gold/Green Frame prototype units.
