    • Voice on Record Player: Colio Tonies, what are humans?
      Colio: Beings with the right to gain all the happiness this world may offer. Wounded humans are to be saved. Suffering humans are to be rescued. Forsaken humans are to be loved.
      Voice on Record Player: Why?
      Colio: (The scene pans back and we see him lying on his side on the floor) All humans are born into this world to be loved. To love and be loved, to experience fulfillment, never suffering, to live a life in utmost bliss...
      Voice on Record Player: Then let me ask you this, Colio Tonies; Why do you that that which you do?
      Colio: (Close up shows a scar on his chest) Colio Tonies is not human. Colio Tonies is a bomb.
      Voice on Record Player: Why do you exist, Colio Tonies?
      Colio: In order to kill Hamyuts Meseta.

    • Mirepoc: (Using telepathy to contact Hamutz) Director, this is Mirepoc Finedel. Do you copy?
      Hamutz: Hmm? What is it?
      Mirepoc: There are Meats jumping overboard, carrying bombs from the Silver Smoke. They're launching consecutive kamikaze attacks.
      Hamutz: Ah...They aren't carrying the bombs. The bombs are embedded inside of them. You could call them human bombs.
      Mirepoc: Human bombs?!

    • Ireia: Hey, hey! (Catches some stone books that Noloty dropped) Don't get careless just because you're busy.
      Noloty: Ireia!
      Ireia: After our lives come to a close and we're buried deep within the earth, our souls fossilize and become books. Each of these books contains the record of someone's entire life. Our duty, as Armed Librarians, is to manage and protect them. It is for this reason that we are so highly regarded. Think of what would happen if one of the books should break. That would be like giving that book's author a second death.

    • Mock Man: Th-the Armed Librarians are coming at us! Damn! We're going to have to fight those monsters! (Loses his arm to one of Volken's disk blades) Ahh!
      Volken: What you did to those men...All those inhuman deeds committed by you, the Church of Drowning in God's Grace, you heretics who have decried the value of love...you're the ones who aren't human!

    • Cigal: I shall become a book greater than all others and ascend into Heaven. I shall have more pages than any other of you, with the most lustrous spine ever seen! I shall write the greatest tale of happiness ever told!
