    • TRIVIA (2)

    • QUOTES (35)

      • Mr. Hory: As you know the Earth is shielded by 7 separate lines of defense. We'll need to defeat each of these barriers.

      • Migumi: A duel?
        Prospector: (calculates) Not a bad deal, actually.
        Gai: Yeah, do it! That's the way real men should fight.

      • Jun: Well, why did you stop?
        Akito: Because I've had enough of this idiocy. You don't really think that the two of us hitting each other is going to solve our problem or win Yurika's heart, do you?

      • Chief Commander: If you cross the barrier, you'll all be outlaws!
        Yurika: Is that so? I guess we'll have to live with it.

      • Jun's subordinate: We're coming sir!
        Gai: Oh no, you don't! I'm your designated opponent. And don't you know that interrupting a duel of honor is nothing short of really rude! Right?

      • Yurika: I'm not just my father's daughter, Jun. I'm a captain of my own right. This is the only place where I can be myself. The real me.
        Jun: You mean because of him.
        Yurika: Huh?

      • Jun: Yurika, this is your last chance. Return the Nadesico to Earth.
        Yurika: It's Jun.
        Goat: You're violating the terms of our contract.
        Jun: Yurika, we'll stop you with force if we have to. If you don't turn around, the Third Defensive line will be focused on the Nadesico.

      • Ruri: Mr. Yamada is completely surrounded.
        Hory: It's up to you, Tenkawa.
        Akito: First he breaks his leg, now this.

      • (talking about Gekigangar)
        Yurika: Huh? How can they pick that over me in a Kimono?

      • Gai: I'm sorry, Miss Nanako. Looks like I won't be able to take you to the beach like I promised.

      • Gai: Let me see. I wonder where I should put these now.
        Prisoners: Come on. Come on. Come on.
        Gai: Hey, who are you?
        (gunfire)

      • (the Nadesico hits the barrier)
        Chief Commander: Don't let them breach the barrier. I don't care if the nuclear power plants meltdown.

      • Akito: Well, you never know. We may still be able to become heroes after all. And Jun, Yurika needs someone to be her knight and shining armor.
        Jun: You mean I can still do that on the Nadesico.
        Akito: Hey, you want it, you got it.

      • Engineer helper: Mr. Yamado's requesting something.
        Seiya: If he's not willing to listen to me, I won't listen to him.
        Gai: Drop off the Space Gangar Heavy Armament module, please.

      • Ruri: Nine Dalphinium fighters approaching from 30 degrees to port, as in left. Elevation is 60 degrees. Distance is 8000 meters.

      • Seiya: Hey, what happened to Tenkawa?
        (shows Akito watching Gekigangar 3)
        Gai: Tenkawa? He's in his room crying like a baby. Oh well, more for me.

      • Jun: (activates Dalphinium) Dalphinium squadron. Intercept the Nadesico.

      • Admiral Misumaru: You must listen to me, Aoi. You are a junior officer with a career in front of you.
        Jun: I've sworn to stop the Nadesico at any cost, sir.
        Admiral Misumaru: But to receive nano-machine treatment?

      • Yurika: My relationship with Akito has been on rather unsteady ground. However. Akito! (goes into Akito's room)
        T.V.: Joe!
        Yurika: Huh? What are the two of you doing here?
        (sees Akito and Gai crying)

      • Gai: Robots aren't for fighting missiles they're for fighting robots. But wait till we get further out. That's when the real fun begins. Oh yeah, baby! We'll be kicking lizard butt galore once we get pass the third defensive line. And this time no cook will upstage me.
        Akito: Whatever floats your boat, big guy.

      • Yurika: Would you be nice and shut the Big Barrier down. Pretty please!
        Chief Commander: You want us to disable the Big Barrier. Are you insane? Forget it.
        Yurika: Okay, we'll just do this the hard way then.

      • Ruri: To protect the Earth from the Jovian invaders. A series of defensive rings has been placed around our planet. The first defensive line, also known as the Big Barrier, is comprised of nuclear fussion powered satellites. Unfortunately this barrier works both ways, and the Nadesico will have to cross this obstacle in order to leave the Earth's orbit. I wouldn't want to die in a place like this.

      • Ruri: Nobody expected 20 year old Yurika Misumaru to do well as the captain of the Nadesico, but thanks to her the world's first civilian space battleship has overcome a take over attempt by Earth's military. Now the High Mobile Battleship is about to head to Mars.

      • Gai: Just make sure not to die looking better than me.

      • Yurika: I know that you did what you did because you were worried about me as a friend, right?
        Jun: Well, actually…
        Yurika: Thank you, Akito, thank you for not hurting my very best friend!

      • Jun: Yurika, maybe this is what I was really wishing for from the very start. I would do anything to protect you. Wherever you are, that's where I belong.
        Gai: For crying out loud, quit trying to steal the show!

      • Jun: I can't let my personal feelings come between me and my duty. It's a matter of honour- it's a matter of pride!
        Akito: You stupid moron!

      • Akito: I believe that if you had faith, you could make a difference, and be a hero. I thought I could change the world.

      • Yurika: What I don't understand is why Jun is so angry at Akito.
        Prospector: Why Captain, isn't his heart there for everyone to see?
        Yurika: Huh?
        Megumi: It's because Mr Aoi is your…
        Yurika: He's just a good friend.

      • Jun: You're not my friend, you're my nemesis. I challenge you, Akito Tenkawa.

      • Gai: Mind over matter, Gai Supper Upper!

      • Seiya: You can ask all you want, but this ship doesn't stock any of these Gangar-Geki things.

      • Seiya: If you don't quite yapping about your rights, I'm going to have to introduce an illegal hard mod to your face.

      • Admiral Misumaru: I'm taken aback by her boldness. And by the way she filled out that kimono.

      • Yurika: Oh, most of them don't understand our language. Just let me charm them awhile!
        Chief Commander: However, some of us understand your language quite well, Captain.
