    • Ryo: So, tell me something, Rika. What do I get for saving your life not once, but twice? (Rika hits him lightly.) Rika: How 'bout twice the whooping? Ryo: Yeah, right. (They both laugh.)

    • (Takato's talking to Jeri while bringing her home. Jeri is just staring at her dinner.)
      Takato: Hey, Jeri, you haven't eaten anything. Aren't you hungry? Well, guess not. You know, Jeri, I've always wanted to tell you that you're the nicest girl I've ever met. I think...I mean you always talked to me and stuff when no one else would... and maybe it sounds silly, but sometimes I imagine that you might kinda like me...the way that I like you... Well, I mean, it's not like I think about you all the time, cause I do. Ah! This is hard! What I'm trying to say more than just a friend, Jeri, is that I like you...I really do...I hate seeing you this way. But when this whole thing started, I was so happy cause you were a tamer and got to come to the Digital World with us... Then Leomon died... and you became so sad...I thought that if I brought you back home to the real world maybe you'd be yourself again, but now you just sit there not saying or doing anything! I keep thinking how much of this is my fault, that if I didn't bring you to the Digital World, you'd still be happy...But you're not...I'm so sorry, Jeri! I'm so sorry that you had to go through all that...that I couldn't help save Leomon...I just wish that you'd talk to me, Jeri!
