->'''''Tobias''': What's going on?\\
'''Rachel''': What's going on is that I'm sick of everybody acting like I'm some kind of warmonger when all I am is ready and willing to do my duty. Marco whines and slacks every chance he gets. So how come I'm the one that gets the bug-eyed look from everyone and Marco isn't?\\
'''Tobias''': That's not really fair. Marco carries his weight and you know it.\\
'''Rachel''': Okay, so he's not a slacker. But he ''does'' complain a lot. I'm sick to death of that "Why me? Why us?" stuff all the time. How come everyone lets him get away with it?\\
'''Tobias''': I think it's because Marco is just saying what everyone else is thinking but would never actually say.\\
'''Rachel''': Right. So how come everybody doesn't tell him to can the complaints and just get on with the job? How come I'm the bad guy?\\
'''Tobias''': The others may not say everything Marco says, but basically, they feel the same way he does. They really don't want to be a part of this. On the other hand, nobody really knows where you're coming from and...never mind.\\

--> '''Jake'''

->''Well? Scared? You should be.''
--> '''Rachel, ''#54 The Beginning'''''



'''Jake''': Your chain of command is almost certainly infiltrated by Yeerks. So is this base. Probably even this room. You don't know if the orders you get are legitimate or not, and you don't know if the orders you give are going to be obeyed. Your power only extends as far as the first Controller in your staff.\\
'''Gen. Doubleday''': Get the hell out of my headquarters.''

->''"What are you planning on doing?" I asked. I looked up and realized that Karen's green eyes were filled with tears. Karen's tears. But they only flowed because Aftran, the Yeerk, was crying.\\
"You tell me what you think I should do," Karen said harshly, despite the tears. "Andalites, humans, there's no difference: You're both smug, moralizing, superior races. You both live in beautiful worlds. You have hands and eyes and the freedom to move about wherever you like. And you hate us for wanting all those same things."\\
"We can't help what we are, anymore than you can. We're born with eyes and hands and legs. You're born as ... as what you are."\\
"Slugs!" Karen cried. "That's what you call us, isn't it? Slugs! Like some wet, slimy thing crawling across the sidewalk after it rains. Something you step on and say 'Eewww, gross!'"\\
"You're a Yeerk. I can't change that. You can't change it, either. All you can do is make other creatures into slaves so you can be more free. How can you justify making Karen a slave so you can be free? It's wrong. I don't care if you're human or Andalite or Yeerk, it's wrong." Karen looked at me and nodded. "Yes. I know." She shrugged her shoulders and looked down at the ground. She bent down and raised a leaf so I could see it. Hanging from the bottom of the leaf was a caterpillar. It was maybe an inch and a half long. It hung from the bottom of the leaf and was busy writhing out of its old skin. The old skin was gathered around the caterpillar like a sock that has fallen down your leg.\\
"This is what I am," Karen said. "A slug. A worm. What this little creature experiences is what I would experience if I didn't have a host body."\\
"I ... I'm sorry," I said. It was all I could think of to say.\\
"You ask me to become this worm again. You ask a lot of me, Cassie the Animorph. You say we can make peace between us, just you and me and Karen. You say we can make a start. And then you ask me to give up everything, while you go on about your life, living amidst splendor and magnificence."\\
All I could do was to shake my head. I didn't even know what it meant. Was I denying what she said? No. It was the truth.\\
