- When Louise tries teaching discipline to Alex for the first time:
Alex (amused): “Disciplined? Oh, this should be amusing. And what exactly did you have in mind?”
Louise: “I think twenty lashes should be enough."
Alex: “Mmm, better make it forty.” (seeing Louise's puzzled expression) "You'll see why."
Louise (irritated): “Sixty! And I'll withhold supper if you don't stop laughing.”
Alex: “Eighty. After all, there's a lesson to be learned here, right?”
Louise: “Bah, one hundred lashes you insolent dog!”
- When Kiche express her fear about Alex's shapeshifting:
Alex: “Miss von Zerbst, are you suggesting that I'm a chunk of malevolent drywall come to life in order to assimilate you puny meatlings into my chalky hivemind? Because if you are, I take great offense at such slanderous claims!”
- Alex suddenly feeling more interested in Louise when he learns she can create explosions.
- When he takes a blood sample from Louise, she asks him the reason:
Alex: “I wanted to be able to use void too. It'll be helpful for you to have someone to practice with.”
Louise: “What's your real reason?”
Alex: “Being able to make stuff explode with my mind appeals to me."
- When Alex and Louise are looking for spells to practice and prove she can use Void magic:
Alex: “How about this one? Looks fun."
Louise: “Exterminatus? We're looking for effects for spells and you just leap to “kill everything?””
- This exchange between Kirche and Louise:
Louise: “Alex is only a threat if you provoke him.”
Louise (hilariously shocked): “No!”
- Alex's Cargo Ship with the Javelin:
Louise: “So that's a Javelin, huh? When you talked about your favorite weapon, I imagined something a little more impressive.”
Alex (rubbing the Javelin against his cheek): “You're only saying that because you haven't seen this baby fire yet.”
Kirche: “With how you're lusting over that thing, I'd think you would have wanted to show it off.”
Alex: “I do, but it has only one shot, so I have to make sure it counts.”
Montmorency: “One shot? One lousy shot? The legendary staff of destruction is a mundane piece of crap that can only fire one shot?”
Alex (to the Javelin): “Ignore them, Javie, they don't know that I could reload you in three seconds flat if I had more missiles. Nor have they seen you gut an M1 tank. No they haven't.”
