* Laeshana when Alaric asks why she [[spoiler: gave him the light magic instead of trying to get him to give it to her.]]
--> "I couldn't risk anything happening to you, Alaric. You come first. You've always come first."
* And then Alaric returns the favor by [[spoiler: transforming Laeshana into an orah.]]
-->'''Alaric:''' "Laeshana, I give you light!"
* A remarkably subtle one after Deshamai, [[spoiler: who had mindbent Alaric earlier in the story, speaks out in defense of Laeshana in front of the whole court, and wins their support for Alaric's plans.]]
--> The shamai looked up, and his deep blue eyes met Alaric's green ones. Understanding passed between the two of them--The score was settled, the debts were paid. A cloud lifted from Deshamai's face. He bowed slightly, Alaric nodded in gratitude.
* A bit FridgeLogic-y, but there is a great line in the scene right after the fire-spiders. When Ruahkini shows up and starts babbling, Alaric thinks to himself "[[I]] had forgotten how aggravating it is to be a participant in a conversation with someone who is insane." Becomes [[FridgeLogic Fridge Heartwarming]] when you realize that that means he thinks of Laeshana and Nahruahn as sane, despite their belief in magic.
