  • This episode takes a break from the normal and goes deeper into the lives of Sora and her parents.

    9.2
    This was indeed a very special episode. It’s a different format from the rest, as it doesn’t actually feature any acrobatics and such. Instead, it resolves the story with Sora and her parents. This is something some people may be able to relate to. Sora is adopted and for the longest time her forester parents, whom she loves and they love back, did not have any children, until now. Now, Sora must deal with these new “strange” feelings. But, it’s not just Sora. Her parents also have to cope with how Sora’s feeling and Ken says some words of encouragement too. This episode might seem boring, but it really isn’t. It’s a heart-warming episode that really makes you appreciate family.moreless

    • (Sora trembles in tears in the hospital after Midori has gone into labor)
      Sora: What have I done?
      Ken: Sora, your mother's going to be all right.
      Sora: I said such a terrible thing to her, Ken. And now, she...
      Chikara: Sora, this isn't your fault.
      Sora: No! I've been so dumb. I thought that once she had the baby,... Once she has a baby of her own, she won't need me anymore! So even thought I know she's so excited about this, I haven't been able to be really happy for her. I hated myself for feeling this way, and I knew that if I went back to Japan, she'd see how selfish I am! That's why I said all those things. She was trying so hard to be a good mother to me, and I pushed her away! And now,... Now she might lose the baby because of me! (cries)
      Ken: Sora, a truly selfish person can never be this worried about someone else. You don't want anything bad to happen to her or the baby. That's what being a family's about. Nothing you say could ever destroy that. You'll be there for each other, no matter what. Your mother and the baby are working hard in there. Let's cheer them on.
      Sora: You're right. Thank you, Ken.

    • Midori: Sora, I want you to come back to Japan with us. Now that you're not with Kaleido Stage, I don't know how you're going to make a living here.
      Sora: Well, you see, my friends and I are going to...
      Midori: I know. You want to create your own Kaleido Stage. But why can't you do that in Japan? You wouldn't have to work, so you'd be free to come up with new ideas. And your father and I wouldn't have to worry about whether you're getting enough to eat.
      Sora: Once you have your own child, you won't have time to worry about me anymore. I'm not gonna matter to you.
      (her eyes suddenly widen at what she just told her mother)
      Chikara: Sora...!
      Midori: You're being ridiculous! How could we ever forget about you?! You are our child, Sora.
      Sora: I... I didn't mean...
      Midori: (in tears) This isn't how I wanted this to happen. I'm sorry, Sora.

    • Anna: Who'd have thought we'd find a place so soon?
      Sora: I know! We're lucky!
      Mia: But Luci's gonna be so disappointed that we're moving out.
      Sora: Maybe we should leave Anna there.
      Anna: Not funny.

    • Kate: Jerry, what have you done with the coffee?!
      Jerry: Wha-?
      Sora and Mia: Jerry?
      Sora: I didn't know his name was Jerry. Did you?
      Mia: It's cute!
      Anna: You know, it suits him.
      Jerry: Watch it! You better not make fun of my name.
      Kate: Jerry!

    • Jerry: (about Kate's apartment) She's totally hot, but she lives in filth.
