In Episode 9, Yuji has been rescued by some nomads, and has decided to live with them (which may seem odd, but considering the alternative...). Marlene is not happy about this, as it is her mission to take Yuji to space. She even goes so far as drawing her handgun, but stops just short of shooting Yuji's new girlfriend. As she walks back to the dune buggy, Dice remarks:
Dice: "Well how 'bout that? Surprised to see you giving up so easily."
Marlene: *keeps walking*
Dice: "Ah, she's probably just going for a bigger gun."
