->''"It's just that you're so strong and kind and charismatic. You're a true leader, both on and off the battlefield. You have this kindly maternal aura that cocoons everyone who comes near. But you also have a calm, commanding presence that makes people feel safe. You're like a mother to this whole entire army, [[PlayerCharacter Robin]]!"''

->'''Granny Reid:''' You know, sweet girl... you're not only a wonderful wife, but in your lifetime you've been an amazing mother to a whole lot of God's creatures.\\
'''Savannah:''' What?\\
'''Granny Reid:''' I said you're a fine mother, too.\\
'''Savannah:''' But... I've never been-\\
'''Granny Reid:''' You've had a mother's heart almost from the very beginning of your years. Sadly, [[PromotionToParent you had to]]. But it's done you good in the long run. And you've done a lot of good for others because of your early trials. You've played the motherhood role for so many orphaned souls who've crossed your path.\\
'''Savannah:''' I guess I've always felt maternal toward my brothers and sisters, but...\\
'''Granny Reid:''' And those two cats, which you rescued from the pound, and all the critters you had before them. And the thousands of people in need who you encountered when you were a police officer, and even now in the [[PrivateDetective work you do]]. How many tears have you wiped away? How much good advice have you handed out? How much practical, everyday help did you offer to people? How many wounds have you bound and how many broken hearts have you ministered to? Thousands, Savannah. That's how many. And if that ain't bein' a mother, then I don't know what is.

->'''The Sorrow''': I'm sure I've explained how we thought of ourselves as sons of The Boss. She was a mother to all of us.\\
'''Liquid Snake''': Um, even you?\\
'''The Sorrow''': Oh, especially me. I guess it is a little strange, calling a woman ten years younger than me a mother figure... But The End felt the same way.\\
'''Liquid Snake''': I suppose there's that, but I was thinking more about how you boned her.
