      • (Lelouch is addressing CC, and Suzaku is addressing Euphemia)
        Lelouch: Is it good to be strong?
        Suzaku: Is it bad to be weak? Back when I was ten, the world seemed like such a terribly sad place, a world without any hope at all.
        Lelouch: Starvation.
        Suzaku: Disease.
        Lelouch: Filth, decay.
        Suzaku: Racism.
        Lelouch: Constant war and terrorism.
        Suzaku: Living in a never-ending cycle of hate.
        Lelouch: Rats running in a wheel.
        Suzaku: The cycle must be broken. Somebody has to do it.
        CC: How idealistic.
        Suzaku: Of course, it's doubtful that the one who does it will make all the bad things go away.
        Lelouch: I'm not that arrogant. And so---
        Suzaku: ---no one should lose more of the people they love. At least, a world without war...
        CC: And to have this utopia, you'd---
        Euphemia: ---how would you do it?
        Lelouch: It's simple. When somebody wins... (knocks over the black king chess piece) ...the fighting will end.

    • NOTES (2)

      • Original Japanese Title: Koujo to majo
        Lit. Translation: The Princess And The Witch

      • In this episode, Lelouch lists off the limitations of his Geass to C.C., his limitations are:
        *The user can only use it once on a same individual. Any following attempts will be ineffective.
        *The victim is bound by his or her physical and mental capabilities. Asking the victim about or to do something that he or she doesn't know or cannot do will produce no effect.
        *The user must have direct eye contact with the victim. The power cannot work over telecommunications or monitors.
        *Direct eye contact via a reflective surface, i.e. mirror, will be enough for the power to work.
        *The power will work within a 270 meter radius of the user.
        *The user may give as many commands as he or she wishes while direct eye contact is maintained.
        *The user must give the commands verbally. However, the power of Geass will control the victim for the duration of what the user's command indicates, so the victim may still act under the power's influence even when direct eye contact is broken.
        *The user may use the power on as many people as he or she wishes simultaneously, provided that they meet the above rules first.
        *The user can also become a victim of the power, so long as the limitations and conditions are met.
        *The victim will not retain any memories from the time during which he or she is under the influence of the power of Geass, but will have a noticeable gap in memory, due to the rewiring and damage to the brain.

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Royal House of Orange

        After Jeremiah damages his career by allowing Zero's escape, his colleagues and even lower soldiers begin to call him "Orange" and "Orange Boy". These insults seem to be a poke at Jeremiah's background; he must be in some way related to the House of Orange, a Dutch royal family rival to the Britannians.

        The path of an alternate history from the continuation of the Tudor Dynasty after Elizabeth I's death (1603). In original history, the House of Orange would move in and rule England after their civil wars during the 17th century, thus creating a union between Britain and the Dutch Republic for years to come. However, in Code Geass' history, this never happened, and the House of Orange, probably like the still-existing monarchies of France, Spain, Germany, Austria-Hungary, and Russia, (alluded to as the EU) are rival factions of the Britannian Emperor.

      • Euphemia: Euphie's character is named after an early Christian martyr, St. Euphemia, who was born to a wealthy, aristocratic, and pious family; Christians in a pagan world. She was a consecrated virgin who used her fortune to aid the poor. Ordered to sacrifice to a statue of Ares, she refused. She was imprisoned and tortured, but repeatedly was miraculously healed. She died when she was thrown to wild beasts c.305 at Chalcedon. This Ancient Greek name means "to speak well".
