"William.. I will never forgive you, not ever!"

"I don't think so!"
―Amuro, firing one of his funnels at the Bio-Scythe
"Do you even know what you think you're doing? leave them alone!"
―Lacus, as she appears in front of William
"Isn't that.. the Nu Gundam?
If it is, isn't that Lt. Amuro?

"That's the Justice Gundam isn't it?
If so, isn't that Lacus piloting it?
