Allan: Archaeology is full of risks, and there’s this legend about a hero archaeologist with a hat and a whip.
Christopher: We’re not sure if he actually existed.
Shiva thinks ahead. Enlil... doesn’t. He took the train to the Portugal port city of Lisboa, and arrived three whole days before Enlil - and he certainly enjoyed the lovely women and the excellent wine. Again, when they were ordered to go to Basque, Shiva brought train tickets, but Enlil had taken off without him... only to literally crash into the train later and bruising her pride in the process.
Shiva assumed the pretty waitress had come back, so he began to flirt with her... then he looked up, only to see the big hairy male cook. Squick indeed, Shiva.
A small Brick Joke which took 330 pages - Taffe hatesmake-up. Later, however, when the platoon were to meet the Spanish king, Muneca managed to get Taffe all prettied up (while Taffe doesn’t care about looking good for the Spanish royalty, Muneca - who is Spanish - does), much to her displeasure.
At first, it seemed like a heartwarming bonding moment between Cinna and Daryl (“If you need any romantic advice, just ask me!”), but it later turns into a Laser-Guided Karma and Hoist By Her Own Petard when Daryl took her up on her invitation... by turning her into The Bait.
Daryl: Oh Cinna, you told me to ask you whenever I need any romance advice. How about a demonstration on prettying yourself up?
Rendo is a pervert.
Rendo: Hey! Where are the hot redhead babes in bikini armor?! All I see are a bunch of dull and ugly girls!
Shiva: The Basque wine I wanted to taste are all gone!
The next page...
Shiva: [Loud exclamation]
Enlil: Eek! More bandits?!
Shiva: Look what I found! An intact bottle of Basque wine!
Muneca almost didn’t graduate at all. Why? She failed Physical Education... because she hated the dress code and decided to skip the classes. That’s right. Muneca didn’t go to a single P.E. class at all.
Also a Crowning Moment Of Awesome because Muneca still managed to graduate with the twelfth ranking - that’s right, there were only eleven students who graduated with better G.P.A. than she did. Had she attended the P.E. courses, odds are good she would’ve been the top student.
Cinna and Aphrodite meets. It’s taken Up to Eleven when Aphrodite, being chased by Cinna, runs into... Muneca. Luckily for Aphrodite, Cinna and Muneca got into a fight (but of course), allowing her to escape.
From that point on, pretty much every time Aphrodite and Muneca meets.
Cinna was trying to tell Muneca about Aphrodite and her Invisibility power, but not succeeding.
Cinna and Muneca fights over who gets the bathroom first; it includes Muneca handcuffing Cinna to a doorknob, and Cinna melting and welding Muneca's shoes to the carpet. Larima got there first,however.
To top it off, Muneca (who apparently has multiple pairs of handcuffs) intentionally used the one she doesn't has a key to on Cinna.
Shiva realizes that the Renegades have several new weaknesses, and to top it off, Enlil had gone missing.
Shiva: And we have a new problem. Enlil’s not here.
A minor Running Gag; the male Preserver, Austin, got knocked back into the water twice by Breanne and then got a Groin Attack from her; his sister Amanda, another Preserver, finally took matters into her hands and bodily threw Breanne into the water.
Muneca heads off the renegades with one of her infamous Death Glares. Osiris’ reaction is priceless.
Muneca: Renegades, I will not allow you to carry out your intentions. Surrender yourselves!
Cinna shares the story of the time Muneca fell into the pool during a P.E. class (Muneca refused to participate, naturally, but she decided to try to "walk" on the water for the heck of it. It didn't work).
Cinna: Took her a while to get out, and she was so wet that her water broke!
Daryl: Broke her water?
Cinna: She didn't realize her leggings were overfilled with water. They fell apart and made a big splash!
Muneca gets revenge on Cinna for telling the story to the platoon...
Daryl: Miss Powell, do you have any embarrassing stories about Cinna?
Muneca: Well, I do have a story about how she made an even bigger splash.
On one of the Subject101 extra pages ("Building up the world") - specifically, the one about currency - we get this warning below the picture of Breanne making a sales pitch for her card game: "Beware sellers in gothic outfits."
When Muneca makes Cinna a cup of cappuccino, as an apology, Cinna won't drink it until she's absolutely sure Muneca hasn't poisoned it.
A long Brick Joke: remember Cinna reading the personal ads in hopes of finding a hot guy? Remember how the hottest guy in those ads was gay? Turns out he's a commander of a Pacificator platoon... (Platoon 101 to be precise)
Taffe is a petite girl (the shortest member of the platoon, excluding Daryl, who is still growing), and Cinna is Hollywood Thin. That's why they were the only ones to fall into the water when Enlil attacked them. What makes it funny is that it happens a second time.
Muneca got the rest of the platoon to agree to pay for Travis' expenses... then she slapped Cinna with her bill. You just know that Cinna got a considerably higher bill than the rest. note Look at the bill closely. The cost is at least 650 credits, and as we know from the "Building Up the World" series, a small meal is roughly 35 credits, and an outfit is 150 credits. Now let that sink in.
