Added DiffLines:

* OddFriendship: Aida and Amneris, though she technically owns Aida, Amenris treat's her kindly, and the two are able to relate well to one another, due to the fact that, unknown to Amneris, they both are Princess.
-->'''Aida''': ''(about speaking to Radames on Amneris behalf)'' Princess... ''Please'' don't make me.
-->'''Amneris''': ''(tenderly)'' I would never make you, I am asking you, as my friend.
