Episode Summary

EDIT
On the long and boring trip to Mars, Mr Prospector insists that Yurika take the time to perform funerals for all the crewmembers and civilians that have died so far, a never-ending task that leaves her no time to see Akito.

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (13)

      • Ruri: Grown-ups are idiots.

      • Akito: I hate this war- and all the senseless death and madness it brings. But still, to live, we must fight!

      • Yurika: Unless we can all pull together, unless we can function as a team and win, people are going to get killed! And if people get killed, that means more funerals, and I will never, never let that happen again! I'd even rather do weddings!

      • Seiya: Asking us to subsist on holding hands is cruel and inhuman. It would almost be better to be stuck back on Earth with my frigid wife!

      • Seiya: I'm still young, you know.
        Akito: You are?
        Seiya: Yes, I am. The young maidens beckon unto me, I see their wanton gaze.
        Hikaru: At other men.
        Seiya: Just drop that sugar in my arms, and the passion starts to blaze!
        Hikaru: If he gets any, we'll all be amazed.

      • Yurika: But doesn't it say in the contract-
        Seiya: Oh, give me a break. Who in this day and age takes time to read the entire contract?

      • Akito: I'm not your worldly passion, I'm a guy with issues that need resolving!
        Yurika: I understand you perfectly- you're saying that you like me!
        Akito: Do you even listen to yourself?

      • Yurika: Hey wait, just what are my worldly passions anyway? I don't know. Do I really want to get rid of them before I even know what they are?

      • Yurika: That can't be right, Ruri. It's saying that it doesn't…
        Megumi: It's saying that it doesn't matter who the captain is anymore.
        (Yurika runs off crying)
        Ruri: Megumi…
        Megumi: Yes, I know, I'm cruel and vicious, aren't I?
        Ruri: Very.
        Megumi: (sighs) But how can I help it?

      • Yurika: We both have to fulfill our duties before we'll have time to see each other personally. Oh, thank you for that, Akito, you've given me the inspiration to fight!

        Yurika: (beats a tambourine) That's right, that's right, I humbly mourn all your deaths!
        Jun: Wow, Yurika sure is into it today.
        Yurika: (thinks) I'm praying as fast as I can!

      • Yurika: All those customs and ceremonies, all those rituals- is that the only reason I'm here?
        Megumi: Well, I guess you'll also be the one to perform our wedding ceremonies, won't you?
        (Yurika runs off crying)
        Ruri: You know, you're a very cruel person, Megumi.
        Megumi: Am I?
        Ruri: Yes, you are.
        Megumi: I am?
        Ruri: Yes, you are.
        Megumi: I am?
        Ruri: Yes, you are.
        Megumi: You know, I am what I am.

      • Doc Holiday: I don't need no funeral.
        Yurika: Thank god.
        Doc Holiday: Just scatter my ashes over the wide blue ocean.
        Yurika: The ocean!? How are we going to do that out here?

      • Ruri (V/O): The new pilots who joined us fit right in, having proved to be just as hopeless as the rest of us on this ship of fools. And speaking of idiots, does anyone really want to know where this plot development is going?
        (We see Akito and Megumi's kiss again.)

    • NOTES (3)

      • Two different clips are used twice in this episode but only one has a slight change the first one is Yurika with her head on the control panel while she's wearing a hat which rolls onto the floor (the hat switches the second time)and Yurika running down a hall way crying after Megumi says something.

      • Yurika once again in this episode believes that Akito saying "get out of the way food coming through" is his way of telling her to do her job as fast as she can so they can see each other.

      • Ruri says idiots "twice" and "fools" once in this episode.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Yurika: Sidhartha found enlightenment under a Bodhi tree
        Sidhartha spent his life searching for truth, and eventually became an enlightened one (Buddha) after meditating under a tree. Yurika hopes that she too can reach enlightenment through her own meditations.
