Seifer: Don't you want to storm them? Squall: It's a chance to test my skills from your training. Squall: Because of you, I don't think I'll lose to anyone, no matter how much of a coward. Seifer: When that happens, you can thank me. Zell: ... What? Zell: You guys get along. Zell: Look, this isn't any normal battle. Zell: It's an important trial. Self-willed actions won't do good. Seifer: You can stay then. We don't want you if you don't want to go. (Dog cries) Seifer: Hmm? You want to go? Seifer: You'll be more useful than you-know-who? Zell: Shut up!
