  • Quotes

    • Narrator: A boy has the right to dream. There are endless possibilities stretched out before him.

    • Gene: Okay, who the hell are you? I've waited long enough.
      Hilda: The name's Hilda. I'm an outlaw.
      Gene: Oh, come on, spare us. Here on Sentinel, everyone and his dog calls himself an outlaw!

    • (Old man chants)
      Gene: Oh shit, that guy's a Tao master
      Old Man: Old Magic?
      Lady Pirate: Out here on the frontier?
      Gene: (referring to his caster bullets) Not bad for a Number 5, that just leaves me with a Number 19. Time to take them all down! That's it, game over, old man!

    • Swanzo: There are three powers in space: The Space Forces, Pirates, and the Outlaws. The difference is what motivates them. What motivates an Outlaw varies from person to person. Good or bad don't figure into solidarity and sense of duty.
      Jim: And that's what makes them Outlaws.

  • Notes

    • Toonami edit: In the Toonami dub, when Melfina is released from the trunk, her bathing suit was digitally added. Originally, Melfina is activated nude.

    • The scene, where Jim and Melfina were in the hotel room, was cut on the Cartoon Network version, because the dialogue implied sex.

    • Also broadcast with the name, "Worlds Of Desire", on the Cartoon Network.
