    This episode is funny. The episode starts off with Relena's birthday, when she hears the name "Heero" and "Ambulance" she runs out and ditches the people at the party (not a nice thing to do, but oh well). Then she hunts Heero down. She interrogates a man that has previously announced that he will kill her. Now the two are alone on a submarine (I think) and one would think that this scenario screams out "Run! He will kill you". And he probably would have if Duo had not stepped in. So how does Relena react to wonderful Duo who has save her? Find out...The episode ends with someone on the sea, not out for a dip, so watch and you will see...moreless

  • NOTES (2)

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Lady: "I bet Martha Stewart would be jealous of this"

      Martha Stewart is an Television host and American Business Magnate. She built her empire through her living style and cooking business.

    • Source: Zech - "To return the favor, we'll lend you our newest underwater mobile suits Pisces and Cancer."

      In the 2nd episode, two new types of underwater mobile suits are deployed by Zech called the Cancer and the Pisces respectably. This draws reference to the twelve constellations of the Zodiac as well as to Astrological Signs.

      The constellation that represents the Cancer is visible to star watchers during the month of March and can be seen at latitudes +90° and −60°. The Cancer is also an astrological concept representing the months of June 21 to July 22. The symbolic animal of the Cancer is the crab and the mobile suit Cancer resembles a crab with a red outer body and claws/pincer like arms. The Cancer is viewed as a water element. Cancer is also Latin for Crab.

      The Pisces too is a constellation and can be seen from earth at latitudes +90° and −65° during November. Like the Cancer the Pisces is a water element and it is represented usually by two fish as Pisces in Latin means (Plural) fish. The Pisces Mobile suit is blue. As an astrological sign Pisces runs roughly during the months of February 19 to March 2.

      Both Mobile Suits the Cancer and the Pisces specialized in underwater operation.
