** Special mention to Yuri and Estelle's conversation, which has the music box render of Ring a Bell playing under it, and contains what can be interpreted as a sweet love confession:
-->'''Yuri''': "The Adephagos won't kill us. We'll live on."\\
'''Estelle''': "And I'll be able to stay with everyone. With you."\\
(There is a long pause where they look at each other, broken when Estelle looks at the ground/her hands)\\
'''Yuri''': "Thanks. I feel the same way."

*** [[BigSisterInstinct Rita is also the one who has a skit worrying about him, though she denies it]].



** Oh, and the entire party exchange after that fight, where Even Rita wants [[spoiler: Schwann]] to leave when them, even though [[spoiler: he's the one who handed Estelle off to Alexei]], and she looks as depressed as Karol. [[spoiler: Schwann, or rather Raven, then pulls a HeroicSacrifice to get the party out alive]]. Rita and Karol, again, have the most upset reactions to this, and from the tone of her voice, she's holding back tears. It's also Rita who tells [[spoiler: Leblanc and the Tweedles that their captain is the only reason the party is still alive]]. From Rita, considering her animosity towards [[spoiler: Raven]], that's as heartwarming as it is heartbreaking.

* Rita is usually conspicuously absent or at least silent when you talk to kids, and indeed most of the talking with children thing is handled by Yuri, Estelle, and occasionally Repede. However, talk to the Krityan child in Myorzo, the one who has you race Ba'ul, and Rita does most of the talking. She is the one who sticks up for Ba'ul ([[RunningGag though it's Yuri that corrects the kid on "Ball's" name]]). When you talk to him to get Judy's Into the Sky costume, check the speech bubbles- it's Rita who tells the kid he's cool for being able to count 1,000 FS.

* Rita makes it clear that she really doesn't like Repede over the course of the game, to the point she never uses his name She calls him "dog" in the skits and one of her battle quotes being a sarcastic "Good job, Spot" (which started life as a scathing "Pretty good... for a dog"). However, battle with them together at the end of the game and Rita will sometimes say in a genuine, warm tone: "Nice job, Repede!".
** Some of the interactions between them make them come off like VitriolicBestBuds and it's darn cute if you think of it like that- two of the skits can be seen as a pair: "Joy and Sorry on the High Seas" (Skit number 371) and "Not so Good With Heights" (number 373). In the first, Rita decides to make fun of Repede's fear of water by dragging him to the edge of the Fiertia. In the second, Repede does the exact same thing to Rita. In Repede's 100 Man Melee skit ("A Dog's Thoughts on Battle"), they start a fight with each other (it should be noted Repede is the only person Repede ''ever'' fights with- he "plays" with Karol and messes with Raven, but Rita's the only one where it's a fight) When you think about it as Repede getting revenge, Repede's capable of being just as much of a kid as Rita and Karol. On the nicer side, there's a skit where Rita is allowed to name Repede's Mystic Arte over Karol and Raven's suggestions ("The Christening"), a skit where Rita is clearly jealous that Yuri can understand Repede ("Dog Language"), a skit where it's clear Repede actually does like Rita ("Rita and Repede"), a skit where Rita asks Repede to help her with Raven being a pervert even though Yuri is also right there ("Manly Musk"), and two where Rita and Repede share in mutual exasperation over Raven ("A Change of Pace" and "From Mind to Game"). It's kind of adorable.

* Very easy to miss and crosses into TearJerker territory, but try bringing Karol to the fight with [[spoiler: Schwann]]. He says this, before the boss in question interrupts:

** You also can find Karol with the Lower Quarter people. What's he doing? Just putting his various skills to use to fix up their important things that got crushed or battered due to the crisis. Repede even helped out there. Yuri couldn't be more proud and Hanks makes it very clear that he's also impressed by them. Consider Karol's past in Daghngrest (with AllOfTheOtherReindeer applied to him thanks to his guild hopping) and this is extra heartwarming as it proves just how far he's come.

* How Karol gets his Bug Breath arte. Raven decides to play a joke on him and say a swarm of bugs is coming. Rita, who up until now has been very rude to Karol, promptly sprays Raven in the face with bug spray and reassures Karol. She walks over to him and gives him the bugspray- "Here, take this. Aspio-brand insect spray, the best to keep the bugs away!". Karol is very surprised by this, but Rita doesn't fire up like usual, simply saying she really doesn't mind and tells him not to spray it near people. Even her teasing about his freaking out in one of the skits is pretty lighthearted compared to how she usually is.

** And after, when Karol collapses from the exertion, ''everyone'' is very obviously SoProudOfYou in regards to Karol. From Yuri to Rita, they all are super impressed and proud of how far Karol has come.

* Yuri's [[AngerBornOfWorry fury]] at Estelle saying it's okay to die [[spoiler: after she finds out the AwfulTruth about the Children of the Full Moon]] is this when you consider his [[TheStoic character]]. He really does care, even if he's not too good at expressing himself.
