    Seifer:  I'd die of boredom if there weren't very many!
    Squall:  ... Secure the Central Plaza.  Anything else?
    Seifer:  I heard that enemy reinforcements were on their way.  We can fight

    Zell:    Squall!
    Squall:  I'll follow the squad leader's decision.
    Seifer:  Squad Leader?
    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?
