    • (At the swimsuit competition)
      Competition M.C.: Your resemblance to Ryoko is striking.
      Ryoko: Oh, I'm very flattered that you think I look like such a beautiful lady.
      Competition M.C.: Entry number one was a Princess Ayeka look-alike, and now you. How did ya get the idea to impersonate such a villainous duo?
      Ryoko: Well, you know, I have to disagree. I don't think Ryoko is such a bad person.
      Competition M.C.: Really? What do you mean?
      Ryoko: Princess Ayeka is the evil one. And that poor, helpless Ryoko is just being forced to go along with her.

    • (As Ryoko notices Nagi present at the stand)
      Ryoko: You sure are persistent!
      Nagi: Well, using a snack shop as your hideout was clever.
      Ryoko: I'm glad you think so.
      Nagi: But getting yourself involved with the problems of planet Jurai was not so clever.
      Ryoko: Hey, listen, that wasn't my choice.

    • (In the snack hut)
      Ryoko: Wow! It's hot out, huh everybody?
      (After getting a brain-freeze from eating shaved ice)
      Ryoko: Yeah, hits the spot!

    • MC: Hey, you look exactly like Princess Ayeka- I'm really impressed.
      Ayeka: Well, a lot of people agree with you.
      MC: The only difference I can see is that the princess is just a little more graceful.

    • Ryoko: I think we need a siesta.
      Ayeka: How about doing something other than figuring out ways to sit around and do nothing?
      Sasami: And you weren't just kicking back and relaxing too?
