    • TRIVIA (1)

      • In this episode a lot changes character voices how much Ruri talks and the entire story changes from slight romantic comedy to teenage comedy because there are more swears and some sexual references making it more like normal anime.

    • QUOTES (21)

      • Izumi: I live! I breathe! (laughs)
        So the cat is alive.
        Ryoko: (shouting while closes the box)
        Izumi: There's no need to pack me in again, Ryoko. I've already been canned once today. (laughs

      • Ryoko: I suppose 2 out of 3 isn't too bad.
        Izumi: It is if you're the third.
        Hikaru: Izumi? Oh, you're alive. Where are you, Izumi?
        Izumi: Where am I? Where is everyone really? As Schrodinger might say, the answer is in the box.

      • Migumi: Congratulations, Akito. You did it. I'm so very proud of you.
        Akito: I couldn't have done it without your help.
        Migumi: Oh! I shouldn't be down here, should I?
        Akito: No, it's okay.
        Migumi: Akito?
        (Migumi and Akito kissed)

      • (talking about the last Aestavalis)
        Hikaru: It's been possessed!
        Ryoko: Huh? What's that supposed to mean?
        Izumi: Um. I think she means the computer has been taken over by the lizards.

      • Migumi: I think sometimes, people just have to hide their feelings.
        Akito: Huh? Of course. That's it. Now I understand it. I've been hiding too, but not anymore. I won't let fear keep me from piloting.

      • Yurika: Excuse me. But as your captain I have something to say.
        Migumi: Excuse me, captain. We're beginning our approach to the Satsuki Madori space colony L2. Your presence is required on the bridge, mam.

      • Migumi: I was just talking to him. He was there and then he wasn't.
        Yurika: Migumi, full frequency scan. There may still be survivors out there.
        Migumi: Huh? All right.
        Yurika: Engineering, fix that generator. Ruri, I want a full quadrant scan for hostiles. If they attack while our shields down, we'll be defenseless.

      • Migumi: This is the High Mobile Battleship Nadesico. Can you read us Madori 2?
        Radio operator: This is SM 2 we hear you fine. And that's a sweet voice you have Nadesico.
        Migumi: Are you ready to receive us?
        Radio operator: That's a roger, Nadesico. Just leave it...
        Migumi: Huh? Oh my god.

      • Hory: Target is in range. Ready to fire.
        Yurika: No wait. Increase magnification. It's an Aestavalis Zero-G frame.
        Hory: It it's one of ours, why hasn't it identified itself?
        Haruka: A trojan horse?
        Yurika: It's ours. They just don't know the proper code.

      • Akito: That's right, I'm a cook! I was only a temp. pilot.

      • Akito: Gai! Gai! Say something! You can't die on me. Gai!
        (later on, Akito watches Gekigangar 3)

      • Ryoko: So what happened to these 2 pilots you're supposed to have already?
        Yurika: Well, I'm afraid one was killed and the other one is...
        (Everyone looks at Akito)

      • Hory: You were towing 4 Zero G-frames, is that all that were left?
        Ryoko: I think there's one more back at the colony's hangar bay. I could only haul 4 at a time, you know?

      • Ready for zero-g combat...?
        Akito: It's not that difficult. The basics are still the same, aren't they?
        Seiya: The basics? Like when you almost drowned? You're nuts!
        Akito: Of course! I'm a pilot, you know!

      • Akito: Even if I lose my life defending them, will anyone here even care when I'm gone? Gai gave everything he had to save this ship, and now it's like he never even existed. Sometimes I wonder if I'm the crazy one because I don't understand how people can be like that.

      • Hikaru: You're kidding!
        Akito: Now, she is not kidding! And I'm also a cook!
        Hikaru: Ah, I see. I knew you didn't look like a real pilot at all!

      • Hikaru: Oh by the way, I just remembered that when I boarded this ship, I kinda broke through the hull on my way in. I tried to fix it with some chewing gum, but maybe someone should look at it.
        Goat: Stand down from security alert.

      • Yurika: It's ours. They just don't know the proper code.
        Goat: How can you be so positive about that?
        Yurika: Just look- on the tow cable.
        Goat: A piece of white cloth on the tow cable. That's standard procedure for towing- but for cars, not spaceships!
        Minato: And I doubt the Jovian lizards could tie such a pretty little bow.

      • Akito: Who are you? And why were you crawling around inside my vent?
        Hikaru: Hmm? Oh, leaping lizards, I guess you would want to know that!
        Akito: Leaping lizards?
        Hikaru: Yeah, it's a pretty archaic expression, but I think it suits me and the situation to a tee!

      • "Only in my version Joe and Ken would be shounen-ai and then they meet a girl who looks just like me!"
        Hikaru's revision of Gekigangar

      • Howmei: Personally, I hope that these new pilots all turn out to be real jerkheads.
        Seiya: You do? And why is that?
        Howmei: Because they're all probably going to get killed, and I'd rather not get to like them too much before they do, you know?

    • NOTES (2)

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Izumi: As Schrodinger might say, the answer is in the box...so the cat is alive.
        This relates to a thought experiment postulated by Schrodinger in which a cat is placed in a closed box along with a lethal device triggered by the decay of a radioactive isotope. As radioactive decay is random, until the box is opened there is no way of knowing whether or not the cat is alive. Therefore, according to quantum mechanics, until someone actually looks at the cat, its state is a combination of (alive+dead), which would seem to be a paradox in the macroscopic world of cats and suchlike.

      • Ryoko: You're gonna work us to the bone, aren't you, Captain Bligh?
        Ryoko accuses Yurika of being similar to the infamous captain of the H.M.S. Bounty, whose regime caused his own crew to mutiny against him.
