    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (4)

      • Lina casts Elmekia Lance which looks like some short white light beams.

      • Lina does the "Victory!" sign that is common in modern Japanese culture.

      • Amelia: Stone of Binding

        Amelia: You pitiful twisted creaters, not of this world... by the Light of Purity I possess, I bid thee, begone to the nexus of our two worlds! Megido Flare!

        The Stone of Binding, for this episode, is a peice of the shrine that trapped the souls that were creating chaos for the townspeople. By using this as a magic amplifier, Amelia was able to disperse the weak spirits with a Megido Flare.

      • Goof: Lina claims that Amelia specializes in white magic, even though all we've seen Amelia cast thus far is Shamanism.

    • QUOTES (8)

      • Lina: (while possessed by a ghost) Oh, sweety, you're just my type! Big and dumb.
        Gourry: I hope that's the ghost talking! Amelia, do something!

      • Lina: The most powerful magic spell isn't worth a thing unless you know where and when to use it!

      • Bandit A: Age about fifteen or sixteen, fast hands, even faster tongue, dressed like a sorceress, built like a beanpole...t-that's her, Lina, the Bandit Killer!
        Bandit C: You mean that stringy little thing?

      • Lina: Okay, the show's over! (to Amelia) Huh, wow, do you need a lot more rehearsal.
        Bandit: Don't joke with me.
        Lina: Sorry you don't appreciate my humor. Maybe you'll get, (punches bandit's face) my punch line?

      • Phil: Do you all understand? All people have to gracefully accept that they die one day. Even if you couldn't achieve all that you wanted in life-
        Amelia: Help, Daddy!
        Phil: (Punches ghosts, then tosses them aside) Let's see now... Where was I? Well, maybe now is a good time to reveal the true meaning of life, so listen carefully...

      • Lina: Can you picture what Little Miss Justice would do if she ever learned the Dragon Slave?
        Gourry: Hmm. (imagines)

        A coin is on the ground.)
        Man: Oh, I found a coin!
        Amelia: That's stealing, and stealing is evil! Come forth, my sure, swift punishment! Dragon Slave! (Guy flies through the air.) Oh, it feels so good to triumph in the name of justice!
        Phil: That's the way, my girl! Keep that up and justice is sure to prevail!
        Amelia: Oh, yes Daddy!

        Gourry: Yeah. It's kinda scary.
        Lina: No kidding.

      • Amelia: Villains who hold no mercy for the weak; Heaven will hold none for you!
        Bandit: It won't?
        Amelia: The judgment of justice is now upon you! (Leaps through the air, but lands on the traveler) I landed on the guy I wanted to save! (shaking guy) Are, are you OK?

      • Lina: Oh, I'm exhausted. We've been walking for days. When are we ever gonna get to Sairuun?
        Amelia: With a heart filled with love for justice, the trip to Sairuun isn't far at all!
        Lina: Yeah, whatever you say.

    • NOTES (1)

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Lovely! Amelia's Magic Training: Tom and Jerry

        Lina: Yep, it is now ghost time!

        Shortly after Lina says this, a clip of a ghost and a dog appears. This dog, although his coat is a darker grey, is unmistakably the dog, Spike, from the popular show, Tom and Jerry.

      • Lina: Churchill

        In this episode, after Lina uses the Dragon Slave to defeat some bandits, she screams "Victory!" and holds her index and middle finger up in a "V" shape (which for us means "peace"). Winston Churchill used this gesture as his signature during WWII.
