    1. Introduction
    ____________
    
    The bath scenes in Suikoden V are quite interesting. Some offer a further
    peek into the characters pasts, while some merely act as comic relief. This
    is my first FAQ so please bear with me- I know it's not pretty. Some of the
    scenes require you to choose a specific area of the bath (indoor/outdoor). I'm
    sure when I went through and watched them all, I lucked up on some of the
    choices and picked the correct area the first time.
    
    
    
    2. The Scenes
    ____________
    
    
    
    2a. " The Apprentices' Rebellion "
          Characters: Bergen, Sorensen, Dongo
    
    
    
    Bergen: Hey, guys, have you got a minute? Gotta get this off my chest.
    
    Sorensen: Yeah?
    
    Dongo: What is it?
    
    Bergen: Well, I became Levi's apprentice because I wanted to see all this
    	great magic and whatnot. But once we came here, I found out there
    	are lots of other people who can show me magic for free!
    
    Dongo: Yeah...
    
    Sorensen: I guess that's true.
    
    Bergen: And then I started wondering why Levi had me digging for orbs all the
    	time, instead of teaching me anything...
    
    Dongo: Yeah, I know what you mean. My master made me forge all this stupid
    	stuff for his rails -- oh, but it wasn't slavery, it was "training." And yeah,
    	I learned a few things, but still, Master just kept sticking me with all
    	the grunt work.
    
    Bergen: Hmm, yeah. Guess you've had a hard time too, huh? What about you,
    	Gadget Boy? I'm sure you have your share of beefs you wanna talk
    	about. Go ahead and tell us! 
    
    Sorensen: What? I-I don't have any...
    
    Dongo: Aw, c'mon! We know your master treats you like a beast of burden.
    
    Bergen: You don't have to hold back, you know. We're all apprentices here!
    	You can tell us anything.
    
    Sorensen: N-No, really. I really don't have anything to say! Professor Babbage
    	is a really great inventor! I'm lucky to be his apprentice.
    
    Dongo: ......
    
    Bergen: ...... That's sad, man.
    
    Dongo: Yeah, really sad.
    
    Sorensen: Huh? What is?
    
    Bergen: *sigh* So sad...
    
    Dongo: So very, very sad...
    
    Sorensen: What are you talking about?
    
    Dongo: He's being overworked and he's not even mad about it. He's a
    	brainwashed slave, right to his empty, hollow core.
    
    Bergen: And the saddest part of all? He doesn't even realize it.
    
    Sorensen: ...... I, uh... ......
    
    ______________________________
    
    
    2b. " Bathtime for Everybody "
         Characters: Shigure, Sagiri
    
    
    
    Oboro: Mmm, what a nice bath.
    
    Sagiri: It sure is.
    
    Fuyo: I feel like I'm turning young again!
    
    Oboro: Now, Fuyo. If you get any younger, you're going to need diapers.
    
    Fuyo: Oh, Detective! Stop teasing me!
    
    Oboro: I'm not teasing you. I'm being honest. "Honesty" is my middle name,
    	you know!
    
    Shigure: Hmph. Stupid.
    
    Fuyo: Hey, Shigure. What's the matter? Why are you way over there? Come
    	on over here with us!
    
    Shigure: I'll pass. *grumbles* What a pain...
    
    Fuyo: A pain...? You are such a --
    
    Oboro: Now, now, Fuyo. He's just embarassed about taking a bath with us,
    	that's all.
    
    Fuyo: Oh, is that what it is? Come on, Shigure! Don't be such a child.
    
    Shigure: I'm not! That's the problem! Grown-up men and women don't take
    	baths together -- not if they're normal, anyway.
    
    Sagiri: You don't like it?
    
    Shigure: Huh...?
    
    Sagiri: You don't like taking baths with us?
    
    Shigure: I...uh...Well, it's not like... N-Never mind me. What about you,
    	Sagiri? Don't you hate taking a bath with an old guy like him?
    
    Fuyo: Heeey! Don't call Detective Oboro old! He's still so young!
    
    Oboro: That's okay, Fuyo. Shigure only said that because he considers me
    	his "old man."
    
    Shigure: I do not! Just shut up!!
    
    Sagiri: Say, Shigure, can you tell...?
    
    Shigure: Tell what?
    
    Sagiri: When I'm really smiling, and when I'm not?
    
    Shigure: Y-Yeah, I guess...
    
    Sagiri: How about right now?
    
    Shigure: Um... Uh...
    
    Oboro: Time's up! Looks like you lose, Shigure!
    
    Fuyo: Now for your punishment. Quit being so stubborn and get over here!
    
    Shigure: *sigh* Whatever.
    
    Sagiri: Hee hee...

    2c. " Beware of the Dragon Horse "
         Characters: Rahal, Lance, Mohsen
         Section: Outdoor Bath
    
    
    
    Lance: Gruuunk...
    
    Rahal: Don't be so upset, Lance. Roog just really needed to take care of
    	some business. You understand, don't you?
    
    Mohsen: Oh, Rahal. And Lance, too. Excellent!
    
    Lance: Grink?
    
    Rahal: May we help you, Mohsen?
    
    Mohsen: Well, me being an armor vendor, and you being Dragon Cavalry,
    	I thought I'd share a little idea I had with you. See, I'm thinking about
    	having my craftsmen make armor for dragon horses. How's that
    	sound?
    
    Rahal: Armor for dragon horses, you say...? Hmm.. Well, one can't deny that
    	they are rather large, and that does make them targets for archers.
    	Heavy armor would cost mobility, but light armor, just to fend off
    	arrows.... Hmm, fewer casualties...
    
    Mohsen: Thought you'd like the idea! Well, hey, let me measure ol' Lance here,
    	and we'll get started! Pardon me, Lance, ol' boy! This won't take a sec...
    
    Rahal: Mohsen!! Noooo!!
    
    Lance: Griiink!!
    
    Mohsen: Whoa, whoa, whoa!
    
    Lance: Grooooonk!!
    
    Mohsen: Oof!!
    
    Rahal: Oh! Oh, dear!
    
    Mohsen: Blub blub blub...
    
    Rahal: I was... just about to say... Lance... doesn't respond well if people
    	touch him when Roog's not around. Are you alright?
    
    Lance: *snorts*
    
    
    ______________________________
    
    
    2d. " Big Brothers, Big Problems "
         Characters: Maroon, Muroon, Faylon
    
    
    
    Faylon: Hey, guys, I need to ask you something.
    
    Maroon: Oh? Wh-What is it?
    
    Muroon: Is everything all right? You sound serious.
    
    Faylon: What's it take to be a good brother?
    
    Maroon: Huh...?
    
    Faylon: Well, Faylen's always sayin' I'm a bad one. Like I don't act like
    	a real big brother's supposed to. But, hey, Maroon, you're the
    	oldest of, what, five? And Muroon, two of 'em are younger than
    	you, right? So maybe you guys can tell me about what a big
    	brother's supposed to do.
    
    Maroon: Hmm... That's a tough one.
    
    Muroon: I don't know if our advice would really help -- beavers are different
    	than humans.
    
    Faylon: How so?
    
    Maroon: Well, we beavers grow up a lot faster. We're out on our own, as
    	adults, long before humans are. And since each sibling's so
    	independent, we don't care so much about who's older than who.
    
    Muroon: Now, of course, we all spend time together, help each other out,
    	that sort of thing.
    
    Faylon: Hmm...
    
    Muroon: You know who could help you out with this? The Prince.
    
    Maroon: That's a good idea. Even from a beaver's point of view, he seems
    	like a great big brother.
    
    Faylon: Well, yeah... but... Nah, he's too perfect. I can't be like him.
    
    Maroon: Then why don't you ask Luserina about her brother? Then,
    	whatever he does, just do the opposite.
    
    Faylon: YES! Great idea!
    
    Maroon: Huh?!
    
    Faylon: Thanks, Maroon! I'll go ask her right now!
    
    Maroon: Hey, wait!
    
    Muroon: Heh. Off he goes.
    
    Maroon: I was only kidding...

    2e. " Blades and Bullets "
         Characters: Cathari, Hazuki, Urda
    
    
    
    Hazuki: Cathari, I have a special favor to ask.
    
    Cathari: Let me guess. You want to spar with me, right?
    
    Hazuki: Very astute. Well, to the point, then... You carry the first
    	"gun" I've ever seen. And -- this is embarassing -- if I came
    	across someone like you in a fight, I wouldn't know what to
    	do. So...pardon me for asking, but... I have to know: Can you
    	fight a gun with a sword? And if so, how?
    
    Urda: Hey! I came here to get away from talk like that! Can you not
    	discuss violence in the bath?
    
    Hazuki: Oh, uh... apologies. That was inconsiderate of me.
    
    Urda: Hmph. You humans. Why are you all so barbarous? If you're not
    	out killing someone, you're talking about killing someone. You
    	make those horrible guns...
    
    Hazuki: ......
    
    Cathari: You think guns are scary? Elven arrows are worse by a long
    	shot, if you ask me.
    
    Urda: How can you say that?
    
    Cathari: There's only a handful of guns in the world, let alone on the
    	battlefield, so they haven't killed many people. Now, how many
    	people do you think have died from arrow fire? Hundreds?
    	Thousands? Is that not horrible?
    
    Urda: You're just splitting hairs!
    
    Cathari: Then tell me. What about guns makes them "horrible" to you?
    
    Urda: Wh-What about them? They make inexplicable sounds and belch fire
    	and shoot iron bullets! What could be worse?
    
    Cathari: Technically, it's lead, not iron. But, basically, she's right.
    
    Hazuki: Wait -- pardon?
    
    Cathari: Simply put, guns are "inexplicable." They're an unknown. People
    	fear that, especially in a weapon.
    
    Hazuki: You're saying guns are merely a... bluff tactic?
    
    Cathari: Pretty much, so far. Guns are still under development. They don't
    	fire as quickly as arrows, or as accurately... Once you know that,
    	they're not all that difficult to deal with.
    
    Hazuki: I - I see. I understand! Thank you for the insight.
    
    Cathari: Don't mention it. But here's the thing... You don't carry a gun
    	without learning everything about it. So if the bluff tactic doesn't
    	work, we have backup plans. All kinds.
    
    Hazuki: Wh...? So, wait! Does that make everything you said completely
    	useless? Cathari, wait!!
    
    Urda: ...... Barbarous. Every last one of them.

    2f. " Careful What You Wish For "
         Characters: Lyon, Sialeeds
    
    
    
    Sialeeds: Ahh... There's not another bath like this in all the world. Well,
    	maybe the one in Lunas... But I'm sure some would object to
    	calling that a mere "bath."
    
    Lyon: Hmm... Lady Sialeeds?
    
    Sialeeds: Yes?
    
    Lyon: That purification rite they have in Lunas... What's it like?
    
    Sialeeds: Oh, would you like to know?
    
    Lyon: Well...I didn't get to see it, so...
    
    Sialeeds: Hmm... Well, let's see... Ah, of course! I'll show you. Come here.
    
    Lyon: What...? O-Okay... L-Lady Sialeeds, what are you...?
    
    Sialeeds: Now, now, be still. Don't move!
    
    Lyon: B-But...Whoa! H-Hey, I get it now! You don't have to...
    
    Sialeeds: C'mon, don't be such a baby. You should try everything at least
    	once, as they say.
    
    Lyon: Aghhh... N-No, stop!
    
    Sialeeds: And the rite begins!
    
    Lyon: Eeeeeeek!! *moaning*
    
    Sialeeds: Well, how do you feel?
    
    Lyon: C-C-C-Cold...
    
    Sialeeds: Well, of course it's cold! The purification rite means purifying
    	the body with cold water, after all!
    
    Lyon: Brrr... I said "stop"... Y-You're awful...
    
    Sialeeds: Ha ha ha ha! Well, you said you wanted to know...and what
    	better way to learn? C'mon, get in the hot water, quick. You
    	don't want to catch cold, do you?
    
    Lyon: *grumbling* I'm not the only cold one here...

    2g. " Crisis of Epic Proportions "
         Characters: Miakis, Lyon, Roy
    
    
    
    Miakis: Hey, Lyon, how long has it been since the last time we both
    	took a bath together?
    
    Lyon: Way too long.
    
    Miakis: Let's take a look at that wound. Come onnn, don't be shy...
    
    Lyon: Well, if you insist...
    
    [Prince]: Hi, ladies!
    
    Miakis: Oh, Prince! How's it going? You want to join us?
    
    Lyon: Huh?
    
    Miakis: Now, of course, this is the women's bath. Teeeeeeechnically,
    	you're not supposed to be here... But, then again, I'm sure
    	they'll make an exception for royalty... Don't you think, Lyon?
    
    Lyon: Miakis, that's Roy.
    
    Miakis: What?!
    
    [Prince]: Wh-What the hell are you talking about, Lyon?! I'm not --
    
    Miakis: "The hell" ?
    
    Roy: Um, I mean, "What nonsense you speak...of..." Ugh...
    
    Miakis: *staring at Roy*
    
    Lyon: Roy, you said you weren't going to do this anymore. You broke your
    	promise didn't you?
    
    Roy: N-No, wait! I, uh, I was worried about your wound, and I, um...
    
    Miakis: He answered to "Roy," Lyon. Hmm, heh heh heh...
    
    Roy: Umm...
    
    Miakis: Well, like I said, men aren't allowed in here. But, if you, saaay,
    	weren't a man anymore...
    
    Roy: Whoa, whoa, where're you goin' with this?! Oh, you wouldn't...!
    
    Miakis: Oh, relax. It'll be over before you know it. I cut things all the
    	time. This'll be easy!
    
    Roy: N.... Nooooo! I'm sorry! Please forgive me!
    
    Miakis: Sorry's not gonna cut it! Ha! You think you can escape a
    	Queen's Knight? Coward! Get back here!
    
    Roy: Yaaaaahhhh!
    
    Lyon: *sigh* She's not gonna live this down for a while. Heh, she was
    	so red...

    2h. " Dirty Waters "
         Characters: Nakula, Raven, Egbert
    
    
    
    Nakula: Damned Nether Gate... I swear I'm gonna hunt down every
    	last one of them!
    
    Raven: That damned Oboro! One of these days! I'm gonna make you
    	pay!
    
    Egbert: Damned Godwins! My family's been storing up its rage for a
    	hundred years! Worthless, filthy devils!
    
    Nakula: Damn you... Damn you all to hell!
    
    Raven: Just you wait, Oboro! Heh heh heh... Wa ha ha ha ha!!
    
    Egbert: You don't deserve sunlight, or air! You deserve to be buried in
    	garbage! You deserve to DIE choking on rotten feces at the
    	bottom of the world's filthiest, darkest cesspit!!
    
    [ Scene shifts to Miroon and Wasil outside the bath ]
    
    Wasil: Wh-What's going on in there...? You know, I'd go in there, but I
    	think I'd just come out dirtier.
    
    Miroon: Maybe you should wait awhile...

    2i. " The Favor "
         Characters: Shoon, Takamu
    
    
    
    Takamu: Shoon, can I ask you a favor?
    
    Shoon: Um, yes?
    
    Takamu: I want to make a map of Stormfist's underground passage.
    	Do you think you could show me around the place?
    
    Shoon: Oh, sure. Of course. But maybe Egbert would know it better
    	than me. He used to live down there and all.
    
    Takamu: ...Shoon, can I ask you a favor?
    
    Shoon: Huh? Uh, yeah...
    
    Takamu: I want to make a map of Stormfist's underground passage.
    	Do you think you could show me around the place?
    
    Shoon: Well, I...I said yes, but you really should ask Egbert--
    
    Takamu: Shoon, can I ask you a favor?
    
    Shoon: WHAT?!
    
    Takamu: I wany to make a map of Stormfist's underground passage.
    	Do you think you could show me around the place?
    
    Shoon: Um...hello?!
    
    Takamu: Not fun hearing the same thing over and over again, is it?
    
    Shoon: Um, n-not really, but...?
    
    Takamu: I ASKED Egbert. And by the time I finished surveying up to
    	the first corner, I heard more than a hundred... "Filthy devils!"
    	"Filthy devils!" "Filthy devils!"
    
    Shoon: Point taken...

    2j. " Foreign Exchange "
        Characters: Sharmista, Isabel, Nelis
    
    
    
    Sharmista: So, Isabel, you're from the Scarlet Moon Empire. Nelis,
    	you're from the Island Nations...
    
    Isabel: That's right.
    
    Nelis: And Sharmista, you're from Armes. So that means everybody
    	here is non-Falenan!
    
    Sharmista: Hey, I guess you're right!
    
    Isabel: You never know about a place until you see it with your own eyes.
    	I used to think Falena was a hellhole. We'd hear stories about
    	slave trading, about how the Queen was a tyrant and used an
    	assassin group... When we heard about the Prince rising up
    	against his own little sister, I came running to smite him down...
    	Never thought I'd wind up on his side. Me, fighting for a "traitor."
    
    Nelis: The Island Nations and Falena go back a ways, so we've always
    	pretty much known what they're up to. But all we ever heard
    	about Armes were horror stories. Pirates, bandits, all across the
    	country, just pillaging and burning everything. No offense, Sharmista.
    
    Sharmista: None taken! That's the way it goes with foreign countries and
    	rumors. Makes sense, I guess. No one wants their people to think
    	someone else is better off than they are... So they go out and
    	plant rumors that put other countries down, just so they look
    	better by comparison.
    
    Isabel: And of course, people buy into the lies and spread them further, not
    	knowing they're being fooled. Myself included. I suppose, before I
    	came here.
    
    Nelis: Well, but coming here cleared all that up, right? Maybe if our countries
    	interacted more, our people wouldn't be so suspicious and hostile.
    
    Sharmista: That's a nice dream. Of course, these days, most people live out
    	their whole lives all in one place. For now, all we can do is make

    Josephine: You think so? Would you care to trade?

    	today...
    
    Yahr: We didn't "gather here." It's just a coincidence.
    
    Taylor: Well, regardless... I'd like to take advantage of this rare opportunity
    	by doing interviews for a special "Dawn Times" exclusive. So here's
    	Question Number 1: What's the most significant difference between
    	your country and Falena?
    
    Georg: I'd say the similarities are more significant than the differences. You
    	might already know this, but I was involved in the Scarlet Moon
    	Empire's Succession War. I realized that no matter where people
    	are from, they all fight for the same sort of reasons.
    
    Yahr: I feel the same way. Be it a Rune Cannon or the Sun Rune, great power
    	always tempts people -- the Island Nations and Falena alike.
    
    Taylor: Oh... Hmm. I see. How about you, Richard? You're with the Lindwurm
    	Mercenary Brigade, so you're from Zelant, right?
    
    Richard: Huh? Zelant? Um.. I forget!
    
    Taylor: Well, you must remember something, right?
    
    Richard: Nope! Not a thing.
    
    Taylor: Um... nothing at all?
    
    Richard: Well, I just really don't care about anything except Mueller.

    	as long as I'm with Mueller!

    	they don't like that kind of pressure. My theory, anyway.
    
    Gavaya: Don't be ridiculous! What's wrong with being serious?! I'm pouring
    	my heart and soul into trying to find a life partner! That's no laughing
    	matter!
    
    Kyle: Well, yeah, but I'm not so sure trying to pick up every girl in sight is
    	the right way to do that....
    
    Gavaya: Hmph! Well, I just don't get you. You or that other guy, Wilhelm,
    	or whatever his name is! Especially him! I think he actually enjoys

    	whom I pledge my loyalty. Gender simply doesn't factor in.
    
    Mathias: And I feel the same. If Lady Isabel were a man, I would still
    	serve her just as I do now.
    
    Dinn: Oh...
    
    Isato: Now, don't misunderstand. It's not a question of which way is
    	superior. And I would certainly never question your loyalty.
    	It's just as pure as any of ours, I'm sure. It's simply that...
    	when it comes to loyalty, you and I view the idea from different
    	angles.
    
    Dinn: B-But... Haswar and Isabel are both very beautiful women. Is it
    	not disrespectful to be so
             close to them and ignore that fact?
    
    Mathias: Ah, you see, that's where we differ. Anyone can recognize and
    	praise Lady Isabel's beauty as a woman. That's not my role, nor
    	my desire. I offer not praise, but the whole of my body and spirit.
    	I shall live, and I shall die, as milady commands me.
    
    Isato: And the same is true for me.
    
    Dinn: B-But that's more like a slave than a servant!
    
    Mathias: To be called a slave to one like her... There is no greater honor.
    
    Isato: Nor higher praise.
    
    Dinn: ......
    
    Mathias: Now if you'll excuse me... Lady Isabel's nap should be ending in
    	a moment.
    
    Isato: And I should return to the Oracle.
    
    Dinn: ......

    Bastan: Ah...
    
    Cornelio: Hey, you! Mediocrity!
    
    Bastan: Waaah! A talking DoReMi Elf?!
    
    Cornelio: What do you mean, "DoReMi Elf"?!
    
    Bastan: Oh, Cornelio... It's you...
    
    Cornelio: Not just a mediocrity, but a rude one at that!
    
    Bastan: I beg your pardon... Did you...need something?
    
    Cornelio: Hmph. Fine. To the chase, then. is it true you called the
    	Haud Village arts community "phonies"?
    
    Bastan: What?! Oh, uh...th-that was...
    
    Cornelio: Oh, calm down. You're embarassing yourself! I know you
    	said it. And we both know they're the most stupid, pathetic,
    	low-class mediocrities ever. Worse than Creepers.
    
    Bastan: Uh, right. Of course.
    
    Cornelio: The question, my dear Bastan, is whether your list of "phonies"
    	happens to include me. Well, does it?! Answer me!!
    
    Bastan: N-N-No! Of course not! I've always thought you were beyond the
    	comprehension of a man like me!
    
    Cornelio: Hmm... I see. Well, mediocre you may be, but an art appraiser
    	is an art appraiser. You seem to have a discerning eye. Good!
    	Keep up the adequate work!
    
    Bastan: I never was much of a music lover...

         Characters: Belcoot, Shinro
    
    
    
    Shinro: Hey, Belcoot, you used to live in Kanakan, right?
    
    Belcoot: Yes, that's right.
    
    Shinro: I was thinkin'... Maybe when this war is over, I'll start importin'
    	some Kanakanian drinks. D'you know any good brands that
    	Falenans might go for?
    
    Belcoot: Brands, huh?
    
    Shinro: Yeah! You were born in Falena, so you oughtta know who drinks
    	what, right?
    
    Belcoot: Well... Honestly, I'm not much of a drinker at all. Brands? I
    	couldn't tell you.
    
    Shinro: What?! You're kiddin' me! I heard people in Kanakan drink booze
    	like it's water! And they're all bottomless pits! You mean it's not
    	true?
    
    Belcoot: It's just a rumor. People drink water there, same as here, and
    	some drink even less than me.
    
    Shinro: Huh! Well, whaddaya know...?
    
    Belcoot: It's just like these rumors about how "everyone from the Island
    	Nations can swim" or "all Zelantians wear armor."
    
    Shinro: What?! You mean those aren't true, either?!
    
    Belcoot: You believed them...? You know, in Kanakan, they say that all
    	Falenans are borne by the Queen.
    
    Shinro: Whaaaat? Stupid Kanakanians, sayin' nasty, stupid stuff like
    	that! "Borne by the Queen"? What're we, ants? Bees? Damn!
    
    Belcoot: Yes, I'd say when it comes to rumors, all countries are equally
    	as gullible.

    2z. " The Tyranny of Masters "
         Characters: Wabon, Levi, Babbage
    
    
    
    Wabon: Hey, Gear Guy! I've always wanted to have a word with you
    	-- you know, craftsman-to-craftsman!
    
    Babbage: And by "Gear Guy," I assume you mean me, even though
    	I really don't like that name, but whatever, what's on your
    	mind?
    
    Wabon: Your apprentice. You're way too hard on that guy. I hear you
    	make the kid do everything. Cooking! Cleaning! Laundry! An
    	apprentice is not a maid!
    
    Babbage: That's rude, that's incredibly rude. I don't MAKE Sorensen
    	do these things, he does them of his own accord. You want
    	to talk about being hard on people, you should talk to Levi here!
    
    Levi: What? Me?
    
    Babbage: That's righ. I hear you make your apprentice dig for orbs all the
    	time, but do you ever teach him anything? I feel sorry for that
    	poor Bergen, you're completely heartless and you ought to be
    	ashamed of yourself.
    
    Levi: Say whatever you want! Bergen does what he does willingly so that
    	he can observe my magic. If anybody deserves to be called
    	"heartless," it's Wabon here.
    
    Wabon: Wh-What?
    
    Levi: Yes, I heard. About how you forced Dongo to make mining carts,
    	when he really wants to forge weapons. That might've been okay
    	when Dongo was still green, but to keep it up now, even? That's
    	not right.
    
    Wabon: I... Hmph! If I pamper that guy, he starts taking advantage of me.
    	I have to be strict! Besides, all apprentices are supposed to go
    	through these things. Isn't that right?
    
    Babbage: You're right, that's the way it goes.
    
    Levi: True, that's pretty much how it works.
    
    Babbage: Doing chores for the master is part of an apprentice's job.
    
    Levi: And a true apprentice is supposed to observe and pick up on his
    	master's skills without being formally "taught."
    
    Wabon: Well, what do you know? It looks like we're all good, caring
    	masters after all!
    
    Babbage: It would seem so, what in the world were we arguing about,
    	anyway?
    
    Levi: Just goes to show you: At the end of the day, the master is
    	always right. Ha ha ha ha ha!
    
    Wabon: Ha ha ha ha ha!
    
    Babbage: Heh he heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh
    	heh heh heh heh HEH! *gasp* Heh.

    Goesch: *sobbing*
                 *sobbing harder*
    
    Murad: Wh-What's the matter?! Are you hurt?!
    
    Goesch: N-No... *sniffle* I'm fine. In Lordlake, until just recently, the
    	best I could do was wipe my body with a barely-damp cloth.
    	Now here I am, in such a huge bath! *sniffle* I can't help it.
    
    Galleon: I'm sorry...
    
    Goesch: *sniff* Sorry? Why?
    
    Galleon: When my hometown was in trouble, all I did was stay at my
    	post as Queen's Knight. That's the kind of man I am... That
    	must be why she got fed up with me...
    
    Murad: No. She was never "fed up" with you. You had your convictions
    	-- she had hers. That's how I see it.
    
    Galleon: Hmm...
    
    Goesch: Well, whoever "she" is, I think Murad's probably right. Looking
    	back, the people of Lordlake were the exact same way. About
    	their convictions, I mean. We could've taken the easy way out
    	and run away somewhere, but we all would've rather died than
    	give up Lordlake. That's what "convictions" are all about,
                 don't you think?
    
    Galleon: Well...
    
    Goesch: So I bet "she" understands about your convictions too.
    
    Galleon: You know, Goesch, I think you might be right...

    Subala: WHAT'D ya just say?!
    
    Lun: Oh, Subala! Sorry, my mistake. You don't look like a guy! They're
    	not THAT small....
    
    Subala: Say it again! I dare ya! Ya think yer all special just 'cause
    	yers're just a LITTLE bit bigger'n mine? What in the world do
    	ya eat that makes 'em all puffy like that?!
    
    Lun: All the same stuff as you. You've been eatin' at my place for years
    	and years. Sorry it didn't work for you...
    
    Subala: Grrrrr... Raaahhh!!
    
    Kisara: Hey! Both of you! Knock it off, sit down, and grow up!
    
    Subala: Oh, um...
    
    Lun: S-Sorry, Mum... Great, now Mum's all mad at me! Thanks a lot...
    
    Subala: ...... Oh, hey! I git it now!
    
    Lun: What?
    
    Subala: Yers got so big 'cause ya drank THAT stuff when you were little!
    
    Lun: You-- You... What the...? In front of my... What are you...? I can't
    	believe you just said that!
    
    Subala: What? I'm serious! That's how it happened!
    
    Kisara: Hmm... You could drink some too, if you like, Subala.
    
    Subala: Whaaat?!
    
    Lun: M-Mum?!
    
    Kisara: Ah, it sure brings back memories. You know, I told him it wasn't
    	for kids, but... Lun's father said it tasted so good, she had to
    	have some.
    
    Lun: Wait. What?
    
    Kisara: ...But, of course, it was too bitter for her, and she cried and cried
    	until her eyelids got all puffy... So maybe you're right. Maybe
    	drinking that stuff is exactly what gave Lun those big, round eyes.
    	Why don't you both drink up? The Admiral's tea's just the thing to
    	soothe frayed nerves.
    
    Subala: ......
    
    Lun: ......
    
    Subala: You were talkin' 'bout eyes?
    
    Lun: You were talkin' about tea?

    Nikea: Well! What do you know?
    
    Zerase: What is it?
    
    Nikea: Uh, nothing. The thought of you bathing just... never occured

    Zerase: Of course I bathe! What do you think I am?
    
    Bernadette: She's got you there.
    
    Nikea: Well...*ahem* Wow, Zerase, your skin is snow-white.
    	I'm so jealous!
    
    Bernadette: Oh, come on, Nikea, yours is white. Here and there.
    
    Nikea: Nah, it just looks that way 'cause the rest of me is tanned
    	so bad. Now, you, you're bronze all over. It's beautiful. I
    	wish I knew your secret.
    
    Bernadette: No secret. Back in the Island Nations, everybody
    	looks like this.
    
    Nikea: Wow! And you're so smooth!
    
    Bernadette: Nikea! H-Hey!
    
    Nikea: How about you, Zerase? Here, hold still...
    
    Zerase: I'm getting out. If you will excuse me...
    
    Nikea: What? Already?
    
    Bernadette: Stay! Relax! You look so tense...
    
    Zerase: I have wasted enough time here.
    
    Nikea: Hey, wait... Ah, darn it. When am I ever gonna get to talk
    	to her? You know, woman-to-woman? Bah.
    
    Bernadette: Nikea... Did you notice?
    
    Nikea: Huh? Notice what?
    
    Bernadette: Her skin... It was so white...
    
    Nikea: Yeah, does she EVER step out in the sun? I mean...
    	what?
    
    Nikea: How warm is this water? Why wasn't she flushed --
    	at ALL?
    
    Nikea: Oh! Um... You... You're not trying to say she's... No,
    	no way! That's... No way!
    
    Bernadette: And remember? She said, "What do you think I am?"
    	"What," not "Who"...
    
    Nikea: Ooh, I'm getting chills...

    	SO not kewl!
    
    Marina: Yeah, how come you're "beautiful" and we're "cute"?
    
    Jeane: Hey, it's a compliment! No one's ever called me "cute," and I
    	wish they would.
    
    Lu: Oh, come ON! Even growing up, all the hot-hot-hot boys had to be

    Haleth: Huh?
    
    Cius: I hear you're betting on dragon-horse training.
    	Very unwise of you! How long are you going to keep that up?
    
    Haleth: Hey, if you don't like it, you don't have to join in.
    	What do you care? I'm not hurting anyone.
    
    Cius: That's not the point! You're in direct violation of military rules!
    
    Haleth: Rules? Ridiculous.
    
    Cius: Wh-What did you say?!
    
    Haleth: Hey, now, hear me out...
    	People agree to follow rules so they can live together without
    	too much trouble. Right?
    
    Cius: In a manner of speaking, I suppose, but--
    
    Haleth: Then if there's no trouble, what's the problem?
    	Yelling at me for breaking some other guy's "rules," when
    	nobody's getting hurt--   What's the point?
    
    Cius: B...But-- but now hear this!
    	If we all pick and choose which rules to follow, sooner or later,
    	there won't be any rules left at all.
    
    Haleth: Oh, don't be so hardheaded. I mean, hey, aren't you the one
    	who helped that tactician lady escape from the prison YOU
    	were guarding? Do the "rules" allow that?
    
    Cius: Th-That was... I... I had no choice! I believed helping Lucretia
    	was the right thing to do, for the sake of Falena.
    
    Haleth: There you go! Rules are something you can break at your own
    	discretion! Right?
    
    Cius: Hmmm... No, but... Hmmm...
