Ruby: Are you... robbing me?
Henchman 2: Yes!
Episode 2: The Shining Beacon
Ruby: But... wouldn't it weigh the same?
Jaune: [dejectedly] Yeah, it does...
Episode 3: The Shining Beacon, Pt.2
Weiss: [seemingly enthusiastic] Yeah! And we can paint our nails and try on clothes and talk about cute boys, like tall, blonde, and ''scraggly'' over there! [Jaune, in the background, picks up on the mention]
Ruby: Wow, really?!
Weiss: [deadpan] No.
Ruby: [not looking up] I don't think Dad would approve of all the boys, though.
Yang: I know I do! [purrs as she watches several muscular, shirtless guys]
Blake: Yes—it's lovely! Almost as lovely as this book... that I will continue to read... as soon as you leave.
Weiss: She's a hazard to my health!
Episode 4: The First Step
Nora: Yes, Ren?
Ren: I don't think sloths make a lot of noise.
Nora: [thinks about this for a moment] That's why it's perfect! No one will suspect we're working together!
Jaune: Not in the slightest, snow angel.
Weiss: This is Pyrrha.
Pyrrha: Hello again!
Weiss: Pyrrha graduated top of her class at Sanctum!
Jaune: Never heard of it.
Weiss: [scoffs] She's won the Mistral Region Tournaments four years in a row! A new record!
Jaune: The what?
Weiss: [waving her arms rapidly in anger] She's on the front of every Pumpkin Pete's Marshmallow Flakes box!
Jaune: [gasping suddenly] That's you?! But they only do that for star athletes and cartoon characters!
Pyrrha: Yeah, that was pretty cool...sadly the cereal isn't very good for you.
Ozpin: Good! Now, take your positions.
Jaune: Uh, sir? I've got, um... a question. So, this landing... strategy thing... Uh, wha-what is it? You're, like, dropping us off or something?
Ozpin: No. You will be falling.
Jaune: Oh, uh, I see... So, did you, like, hand out parachutes for us?
Ozpin: No. You will be using your own landing strategy.
Jaune: Uh-huh... Yeah... So, what exactly is a landing strateg-[launched through the air]YYY!
Episode 5: The First Step, Pt.2
[Weiss then comes across Jaune tagged to a tree]
Jaune: [struggling to free himself] Come on, come on! Stupid..!
Weiss: [as she turns to walk away, she passes Ruby and pulls her by her hood] By no means does this make us friends.
Ruby: [overjoyed as she's dragged away] You came back!
Jaune: [waving after the girls] Wait! Come back! Who's going to get me down from here?!
Pyrrha: [below] Jaune? Do you... have any spots left on your team?
Jaune: [crossing his arms] Very funny...
Episode 6: The Emerald Forest
[Yang's face goes blank as she sees a single strand of blonde hair float down and touch the ground]
Yang: You... [Yang blinks and her eyes turn red]
[The two Ursa look at each other in confusion]
Yang: YOU MONSTERS!!!
Pyrrha: Your aura.
Pyrrha: Jaune, do you... know what aura is?
Jaune: [waves the question off, avoiding eye contact] Psch! Of course I do! Do you know what aura is?
through this we become a paragon of virtue and glory to rise above all.
Infinite in distance and unbound by death,
I release your soul, and by my shoulder, protect thee."
Episode 7: The Emerald Forest, PT.2
Jaune: [Sighs] Pyrrha, I made the torch. Could you at least humor me for maybe five more feet?
[Trips and falls into a puddle, extinguishing the torch]
Pyrrha: Do you feel that?
Jaune: Soul-crushing regret?
Yang: Some girl's in trouble!
Episode 8: Players and Pieces
Blake: [After Nora makes her entrance riding an Ursa] Did that girl just ride in on an Ursa?
Blake: [After Pyrrha enters the clearing, being chased by a Deathstalker] Did she just run all the way here with a Deathstalker on her tail?
Yang: [Finally exploding] I can't take it anymore! Could everyone just chill out for two seconds before something crazy happens again?
[A timer counts to two seconds...and then Weiss falls from the sky]
Nora: [Pops up between the two sisters who are about to hug] Nora!
Jaune: Just...dropping in! [He makes the mistake of looking down] Oh god noooooo...
[Jaune lands on his face, Weiss lands on his back.]
Weiss: My hero.
Jaune: My back...
Ruby: Not if I can help it! [charges]
Weiss: And dimwitted, and hyperactive, and don't even get me started on your fighting style... and I suppose I can be a bit...difficult...but if we're going to do this, we're going to have to do this together. So if you quit trying to show off, I'll be...nicer.
Ruby: I'm not trying to show off. I want you to know I can do this.
Weiss: You're fine.
Ruby: [Sighs in relief] Normal knees...
Ruby: Think you can make the shot?
Weiss: Hmph. Can I?
Ruby: ...can y-
Weiss: Of course I can!
Episode 9: The Badge and The Burden
Weiss: What?! Did you say 9 o'clock?
Weiss: It's 8:55, you dunce!
Episode 10: The Badge and The Burden PT.2
Weiss: So you would just blindly accept his decision even after seeing how exceptional I am?
Peter: With all due respect, your exceptional skill on the battlefield is matched only by your poor attitude.
Weiss: How dare you!
Peter: My point exactly. I see a girl before me who has spent her entire life getting exactly what she wanted.
Weiss: That's not even remotely true!" [Peter looks at Weiss with doubt] Well... not entirely true.
Ruby: I.. I don't...
Weiss: Answer the question!
Ruby: Uhh, cream and five sugars!
Weiss: [sighs] Don't move.
Episode 11: Jaunedice
Ren: It was day.
Nora: We were surrounded by Ursae.
Ren: They were beowolves.
Nora: [shoots to her feet] DOZENS OF THEM!
Ren: Two of 'em.
Nora: But they were no match. And in the end Ren and I took them down and made a boatload of lien selling ursae skin rugs!
Ren: [sighs] She's been having this recurring dream for nearly a month now...
Episode 12: Jaunedice Pt.2
Pyrrha: N-n-no!" [pushes Jaune away from the edge] That's not why I brought you up here!
Episode 13: Forever Fall
Ruby: Nope! You're a leader now, Jaune. You're not allowed to be a failure.
Jaune: But... what if I'm a failure at being a leader?
Jaune: You know, you're not the easiest person to talk to about this kind of stuff.
Episode 14: Forever Fall Pt.2
Ruby: Whoa, you can control poles...
Weiss: No, you dunce! It means she has control over magnetism!
Ruby: Magnets are cool, too...
Episode 15: The Stray
Blake: She wants to spy on them so she'll have the upper hand in the tournament.
Weiss: [scoffs] You can't prove that!
Sun: Hey! A no-good stowaway would've been caught! I'm a great stowaway!
Blake: Says the girl wearing a dress?
Weiss: It's a combat skirt!
[Weiss and Ruby low-five]
Episode 16: Black and White
Weiss: I think that when we hear it, you'll all realize I was right!
Penny: And I think Weiss' hair looks wonderful today!
Ruby: Aaaah! Penny! Where did you come from!?
Penny: Ooooh, you mean the Faunus girl!
Ruby: Wait, how did you know that?
Penny: Uhh, the cat ears?" [points to her head]
Yang: What cat ears? She wears a... boooowww...
[Beat, Tumbleweed blows by with wind]
Ruby: [Whispering] She does like tuna a lot...
Blake: Do you always break the law without giving a second thought?
Sun: Hey, weren't you in a cult or something?
Blake: [Death Glare]
Sun: ...okay, too soon.
Roman: What the-? Oh, for f-
Blake: [Cutting Roman off] Nobody move!
Volume 2 Episode 1: Best Day Ever!
Emerald: Mercury, I will seriously pay you to shut up.
Mercury: That's not your money.
Emerald: But it can be yours for 5 minutes of silence.
Tukson: Tukson's Book Trade.
Emerald: And you're Tukson?
Tukson: That's right.
Emerald: So then I take it that you're the one that came up with the catchphrase?
Mercury: And, what was it again?
Tukson: [sighs] "Tukson's Book Trade, home to every book under the sun."
Mercury: Except the "Third Crusade".
Tukson: It's just a catchphrase.
Mercury: It's false advertising!
Emerald: You shouldn't make a promise you can't keep, Tukson. [Mercury starts to dim the lights] I hear that you're planning on leaving. Moving all the way to Vacuo. Your brothers in the White Fang won't be happy to hear that. And neither are we... You know who we are, don't you?
Emerald: And you know why we're here?
Emerald: So... are you going to fight back?
Ruby: I am not a crook.
Yang: I always kick my semesters off with a Yang! Eh? Guys? Am I right?
Nora: [Throws apple at Yang from offscreen] Boooooooooooooooo!
[The camera pans up from Neptune's feet to his face. Neptune's teeth gleam as he smiles]
Sun: Good point.
Rest of Team RWBY: YEAH!
Emerald: Spare us the thought of you procreating.
Roman: That was a joke.
Roman: Ummmmm. [Points to a stack of dust containers] Eh?, [Points to a bigger stack of dust containers] Ehh?, [Points to whole warehouse] EEEHHHHHHHHHHHH?!?! Sorry if I've been busy stealing every speck of Dust in the Kingdom!
Episode 2: Welcome to Beacon
Ozpin: I hope they never have to.
Weiss: I have... absolutely no idea what's going on.
Ruby: Hey Sun!
Sun: Ruby, Yang, Blake...Ice Queen.
Weiss: Why does everyone keep calling me that?
Ren: [at background] Thank you!
Nora: [wakes up] Pancakes!
Sun: Shut up, don't be a nerd.
Neptune: Geh, geh, geh, geh! "Intellectual", okay? Thank you.
Neptune: Haven. [Approaches Weiss.] And I don't believe I've caught your name, snow angel.
Weiss: Um, I'm Weiss.
Jaune: Are you kidding me!?
Yang: Uh, have you met Blake?
Yang: Yes! I love it when you're feisty!
Weiss: Well, I suppose it could be fun.
Ruby: [disappointed] None of you said aye...
Episode 3: A Minor Hiccup
Weiss: I'm glad to see we're taking this so seriously.
Yang: Hey, we've got a plan! That's... moderately serious.
Sun: Ah, it's easy; I do it all the time.
Weiss: You do what?!
Sun: I climb trees all the time!
Sun: Psh! That's dumb! We should always get friends involved! That's why I brought Neptune! (gestures out the window)
[Team RWBY looks out window]
Ruby: How did you even get up here?
Neptune: I have my ways.
Neptune: Seriously, though, can I come in? We're like, really high up right now.
Weiss: Actually, Ruby, why don't you go with Yang? After all, she is your sister.
Ruby: But, Weiss, who would go with you, then?
Weiss: Well... I guess Neptune could come with me.
Ruby: [Chuckes] Nah [Drags Weiss away with her]
Weiss: [Being dragged away] But!...But!....
Episode 4: Painting the Town...
Melanie and Miltia: [In sync] Hmph! Whatever. [Both walk away]
Sun: You're sure?
Blake: [Death Glare]
Sun: Y'know, I'm just gonna take your word for it.
Sun: Grimm masks... That's kind of dark.
Blake: So was the guy who started it.
Sun: [sighs] Always sunshine and rainbows with you...
Roman: I'm glad you asked, "Deerie"!
Sun: [To Blake] So, is he going somewhere with this?
Roman: But, before the claws come out, I'd like to mention the fact that you and I all have a common enemy: the ones in control; the people pulling the strings; the dirty, rotten humans that run our kingdoms! Government; military; even the schools: they're all to blame for your lot in life! And they're all pests that need to be dealt with! Fortunately, I'm the best exterminator around... No offense to any rodents in the room. [Snaps and a curtain drops to reveal a Atlesian Paladin-290
Sun: Whoa, that's a big robot...
Neptune: [Rushes into the scene] So where did they go?
Junior: What kind of stupid question is that? They never came back! [To Yang] Who is this guy?
Yang: Don't worry about him; worry about me if I don't find out what I want!
Junior: I already told you everything! Torchwick hired my boys, and I guess he wasn't happy with them, [Shouts, facing toward his men] which is something I can relate to! [Henchmen grumbles in background].
Blake: On it!
[Scene cuts to Weiss]
Blake: [On Weiss' Scroll] Everyone! If you can hear me, we need back-
[Scene cuts to Ruby]
Sun: Big robot! And it's big! Really big!
Ruby: Oh, I am not missing this!
[Scene cuts to Yang and Neptune]
Sun: That Torchwick guy is in it! But not, like, it didn't eat him; he's, like, controlling it or something!
Yang: Where are you guys?
[At Background, Blake and Sun passes by the duo, chased by the Mecha]
Neptune: I think that was them.
Yang: Yeah, I got it.
Weiss: Yeah, I guess she really made our plans... fall apart!
[Ruby snickers, Blakes just walks away]
Yang: No. Just... no.
Weiss: What- Hey, you do it!
Yang: There's a time and a place for jokes.
Weiss: Was this not it?
Yang: No, it just wasn't very good. [Walks off]
Weiss: Well, at least I'm trying!
Episode 5: Extracurricular
Weiss:You can't sleep, you hardly eat, and to be honest, your grades have been suffering.
Blake: You think I care about grades? People's lives are at stake!
Weiss: [Gives up and opens door]
Jaune: [Singing] I lied!
Weiss: Are you done?
Weiss: No [Closes door and looks at Ruby and Yang] What?
Yang: And that is why they call you the Ice Queen.
Cinder: Don't worry, Mercury. We have a fun weekend ahead of us.
Episode 6: Burning the Candle
Ruby: [Looks at the two very similar-looking cloths] Aren't they both the same?
Weiss: [sighs] I don't even know why I asked!
Sun: Uuhhh... this? [Points to his usual outfit]
Neptune: Ignore him for he knows not what he says.
Sun: Hey, I may have moved to Mistral, but I grew up in Vacuo. It's not exactly a shirt-and-tie kind of place.
Yang: Yeah, we noticed.
Jaune: I just... don't know... how to... girls. Um, I-I guess what I'm asking is... Well, how did you and Nora... y'know...
Ren: Uh... uh... uh...
Nora: [Clears throat] We're actually not "together-together"...
Jaune: NORA I SAID HEADPHONES ON!
Nora: OH! [Puts headphones on]
Jaune: [Sighs deeply] It's Weiss. I'm completely head-over-heels for her, and she won't even give me a chance. She's cold, but she's also incredible. She's smart, and graceful, and talented. I mean, have you heard her sing? I-I just wish she's take me seriously, y'know? I wish I could tell her how I feel without messing it all up.
Pyrrha: [Off-screen] Then do it.
Jaune: [Looks up to see Pyrrha in the doorway, with Ren and Nora doing the same] Uh, wha?
Pyrrha: [Walking into the room] Tell her exactly what you said. No ridiculous schemes, no pick-up lines. Just... be honest.
Jaune: But what if I-
Pyrrha: Jaune. [Smiles] You can't get it wrong if it's the truth.
Jaune: [Looks up with a new confidence] You're right. [Stands up] Thanks, Pyrrha! [Looks back to his bed as he goes out] Good talk, Ren!
Ruby: Can we have a serious talk about how Weiss fights in these?
Blake: I knew you'd look better in a tie.
Yang: Just have fun! [Walks away with Weiss]
Ruby: Does that mean I can change out of these stupid things and into my hood now? [No response] Stupid lady stilts!
Ruby: No, no, everything's fine! I'm just not much of a fancy pantsy... dancey girl.
Ozpin: Well, you can't spend your whole life on the battlefield, even if you may want to.
Ruby: Yeah, that lesson's been floating around a lot lately.
Ozpin: If you think aobut it, fighting and dancing aren't so different. Two partners interlocked, although one wrong move on the ballroom merely leads to a swollen foot.
Ruby: [Looking at her own feet] Or a twisted ankle.
Mercury: [Walking in with Emerald] Wouldn't miss it for the world.
Episode 7: Dance Dance Infiltration
Jaune: (In mock seriousness) To the socially awkward.
[Ruby giggles, and they clink their glasses.]
Pyrrha: I've been blessed with incredible talents and opportunities. I'm constantly surrounded by love, and praise... But when you're placed on a pedestal like that for so long, you become separated from the people that put you there in the first place. Everyone assumes I'm too good for them. That I'm on a level they simply can't attain. It's become impossible to form any sort of meaningful relationship with people. That's what I like about you. When we met, you didn't even know my name... you treated me just like anyone else. And thanks to you, I've made friendships that will last a lifetime. I guess... you're the kind of guy I wish I was here with: someone who saw me for me.
Jaune: Alright, don't lie to my face. [Returns the fistbump]
[Laughter continues as the scene moves to Pyrrha, who turns to see what everyone is laughing at]]
Jaune: [Wearing a dress with no sign of embarrassment whatsoever] Eh, a promise is a promise.
[Beat, where Pyrrha desperately tries not to laugh, smile growing wider by the second]
Pyrrha: [Laughing hard] Jaune! You didn't have to!
Jaune: Hey, an Arc never goes back on his word. Now do you wanna stand there and laugh at me... or do you wanna dance?
Pyrrha: [Taking his hand] I would love to dance.
Ren: Wait... [Looks at the fourth wall] what is happening?
Security Soldier 2: It's 'BEACON', but replace the 'E' with a '3', and add an # symbol at the end.
[Later, after Cinder entered the elevator with them, knocking them out and taking the tablet]
Cinder: That's handy.
Cinder: Mmm... a little more exciting than expected.
Mercury: Should we be worried?
Cinder: Hardly... They'll be scratching their heads long after we finished what we came here for.
Mercury: So then what now?
Cinder: Enjoy the rest of the night. After all, it is a party.
White is cold and always yearning, burdened by a royal test.
Black the beast descends from shadows.
Yellow beauty burns gold...
Treated like a worthless animal,
Stripped of all rights,
Just a lesser being,
Crushed by cruel ruthless Human rule.
And our friends turn and leave us behind.
Creatures of darkness will triumph;
The sun won't rise.
When we've lost all hope,
And succumb to fear,
And the skies rain blood,
And the end draws near,
I may fall,
But not like this: it won't be by your hand.
