Roy: I guess it's too much to hope for you to thank me for rescuing you, right?
Julia: I guess it's too much to hope for you to apologize for getting me kidnapped in the first place, right?

Roy: Hey, it's now my fault you got kidnapped by a villain. These things happen.
Julia: Except insofar as it totally WAS your fault, since he did it to get at you.
- Panel 5
Roy: What, the ever-touted almighty power of magic wasn't enough to protect you? You needed someone to hit something with a stick?
Julia: Considering it was a cleric that did all the real work, you can bite my spell slots, meat shield.

Julia: Hero complex.
Roy: Attention seeker.

Roy: Love you.

Julia: Hey, maybe try to loosen up a little before the next time you visit.
Roy: Maybe you should try to tighten up a little--
Roy: As in, put some clothes on, girl.
- Panel 12
Nale: Weird... It's almost like they don't even HAVE an obsessive homicidal grudge against their sibling...
Sabine: Nale, honey, some families are just... different.
