    • QUOTES (3)

      • Ilpalazzo: (thinking about Key) Quit putting on such a show! Giving yourself an artist's airs, you narcissistic bastard! Nar-bastard, nar-bastard! Disappear! Leave! Go away, away!

      • Key: My name is Key. I am a key. And could you perhaps be... (to Excel) my keyhole?

      • Ilpalazzo: (thinking about Key) Damn you. Just because you're visually appealing, you little bastard, doesn't make you cool. Stupid, stupid, stupid. I'll kill you, you poser! I'll definitely make you die!

    • NOTES (4)

      • For once, Excel falls in love with a man (namely Key) other than Ilpalazzo.

      • First and only appearance of Key, the vocalist.

      • Authorization: In front of a sold-out crowd demanding an encore, Rikdo Koshi (dressed as Elvis) proceeds to sing his authorization to turn Excel Saga into a rock anime. But the dome he's performing in and its surroundings are destroyed by an object from space... which turns out to be a giant stamp of approval.

      • Normally a picture perfect poker face, we get the to hear Ilpalazzo's thoughts when dealing with Key. Key seems to be the only one capable of making Ilpalazzo want to KILL.
