Heartwarming: Code MENT
- Lelouch and Mao's friendship in this series. The fact that Mao received a terrible fate in the original series and the only person he considered a friend was C.C., who abandoned him, didn't hurt.
Lelouch: Oh, enough of this idle chit-chat, what's your stake in this Mao? Why are you here?Mao: Ah, its a really weird story man, I don't even think you would believe it. But put it very, very simply, that green-haired girl you're always with, I think she's a psycho.Lelouch: Mao, will you be my best friend?Mao: Huh?Lelouch: We have so much in common.Mao: You know its funny, I thought today was going to suck, but turns out I'm going to find the girl I've been looking for forever, and I got a new best friend.
Lelouch: *looks up and stares out the window*(Cut to an unstable Shirley pointing a gun at both of them)
- Their conversation also counts as a Crowning Moment Of Funny:
Mao: Lelouch buddy, you okay?Lelouch: I feel like sunshine right now.
- Turns out Mao wasn't lying either, when Lelouch gets shot Mao really is concerned for his safety:
- The fact that Lelouch did actually come to help C.C. in the end and even called in Ex-LAPD officers.
- At the beginning of the episode, Lelouch is trying to talk C.C. out of her Death Seeker mode, which is nice of him. Even if he's comically terrible at it.
- 14.5 is great in that it's both casts of the abridged series having a crazy night together as friends. The plot is more of a side act compared to everything else that's going on.
- Lelouch breaking C.C. away from Suzaku to stop her showing him old Madonna music videos.
Lelouch: STOP IT, YOU'RE KILLING HIM!
- It's rather sweet that the first thing Lelouch says after he shoots himself (which is hilarious) is the last thing his mother said before she died: "that smarts".
- The completely legitimate concern Lelouch displays when Nunally appears to be in danger from a bomb.
