Volume 1

Episode 1: Ruby Rose

Henchman 2: I said, put your hands in the air, now!
Ruby: Are you... robbing me?
Henchman 2: Yes!
Ruby: Ooohhh...

Ruby: [looking at Glynda] You're a Huntress! [putting on a pleading, awe-stricken face] Can I have your autograph?!

Glynda: If it were up to me, you'd be sent home... with a pat on the back... and a slap on the wrist. [she demonstrates with her wand, which Ruby barely avoids]

Ruby: I mean the police are alright, but Huntsmen and Huntresses are just so much more romantic and exciting and cool and really, gyah, you know!

Episode 2: The Shining Beacon

Ruby: [getting so excited she becomes a 2-D, starry-eyed, floating chibi] Ohmygosh, sis! Look! That kid's got a collapsible staff! And she's got a fire sword!

Jaune: [fumbling with the shield as it retracts off his arm, expands, and retracts again before putting it back in place and finally shrinking it down for good, placing it on his belt] The shield gets smaller, so when I get tired of carrying it, I can just... put it away...
Ruby: But... wouldn't it weigh the same?
Jaune: [dejectedly] Yeah, it does...

Jaune: Eh, why not? My mom always says, "strangers are just friends you haven't met yet."

Episode 3: The Shining Beacon, Pt.2

Jaune: [sighs] Ah, great. Where am I supposed to find another nice, quirky girl to talk to?

Ruby: [holding out her hand as she clears her throat] Hello, Weiss! I'm Ruby! Wanna hang out? We can go shopping for school supplies!
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.

Jaune: [approaching Weiss from the side] I'm a natural blond, you know.

Yang: It's like a big slumber party!
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]

Yang: [as Ruby laughs uncomfortably] Nice night, don't you think?
Blake: Yes—it's lovely! Almost as lovely as this book... that I will continue to read... as soon as you leave.

Yang: Yeah, what's your problem with my sister? She's only trying to be nice!
Weiss: She's a hazard to my health!

Episode 4: The First Step

Nora: We've been friends for soooooooo long! What are the odds we'd still be together? Well, not together-together... not that I'm not saying that you're not handsome; you are handsome, but that'd just be weird, right?

Nora: I know! We'll have some sort of signal! Like a distress signal! [gasps] A secret signal so we can find each other in the forest! Can you imitate a sloth?
Ren: Nora?
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!

Ruby: I don't need people to help me grow up! I drink milk!

Weiss: [in thought] This will be perfect! The smartest girl in class combined with the strongest girl in class! Together we will be unstoppable! I can see it now! We'll be popular! We'll be celebrities! We'll get perfect grades! Nothing can come between us now!

Weiss: [separating the two] Jaune, is it? Do you have any idea who you're talking to?
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.

Jaune: [raising his hand] Yeah, um, sir?
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

Ruby: [after crashing through a wayward bird] Birdy, NO!

Ruby: [following hesitantly after Weiss] Wait! Where are you going?! [stops and kicks the ground dejectedly] We're supposed to be teammates...
[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: Helloooooooo? Is anyone out there? Helloooo? [stops and raises her arms] I'm getting bored here! [hears rustling in the bushes] Is someone there? [Yang approaches and peaks into the bushes] Ruby, is that you? [a growl alerts her to the Grimm in the bushes] Nope!

Yang: [after dodging several attacks from 2 Ursa] Ha! You guys couldn't hit the broad side of a ba...
[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]

Pyrrha: Why didn't you activate your aura?
Jaune: Huh?
Pyrrha: Your aura.
Jaune: Gesundheit.
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?

"For it is in passing that we achieve immortality,
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."
Pyrrha Nikos, unlocking Jaune's Aura.

Episode 7: The Emerald Forest, PT.2

Pyrrha: I'm not sure this is it.
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?

[Jaune's screams echo in the distance]
Yang: Some girl's in trouble!

Jaune: [Currently hanging from a Deathstalker's tail] Pyrrha, this is not the relic! It's not!

Episode 8: Players and Pieces

Blake: Did your sister just fall from the sky?
Yang: I...
Blake: [After Nora makes her entrance riding an Ursa] Did that girl just ride in on an Ursa?
Yang: I...
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: [Singing after picking up the white rook piece] I'm queen of the castle! I'm queen of the castle!

Pyrrha: Jaune!
Jaune: Pyrrha!
Ruby: Whoa!
Jaune: Ruby!
Yang: Ruby?
Ruby: Yang!
Nora: [Pops up between the two sisters who are about to hug] Nora!

[Jaune sees Weiss falling from the sky and leaps to catch her]
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...

Yang: Great! The gang's all here. Now we can die together!
Ruby: Not if I can help it! [charges]

Weiss: You are so childish.
Ruby: Weiss...?
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...

Jaune: Run and live. That is an idea I can get behind.

Yang: [Firing shells into a Nevermore's mouth] I - hope - you're - hun - gry!

Weiss: [Preparing to launch Ruby from a giant improvised slingshot] Of course you would come up with this idea.
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

Ruby: Now, we have a few classes together today. At 9, we've got to be-
Weiss: What?! Did you say 9 o'clock?
Ruby: Uuuummmm...
Weiss: It's 8:55, you dunce!

Episode 10: The Badge and The Burden PT.2

Ozpin: I've made more mistakes than any man, woman, and child on this planet. But at this moment, I would not consider your appointment to leader to be one of them." [leans in closer to Ruby] Do you?

Peter: I've believed in Professor Ozpin for many years, and the man's never once led me astray!
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.

Ozpin: Being a team leader isn't just a title you carry into battle, but a badge you wear constantly. If you're not always performing at your absolute best, then what reason do you give others to follow you? You've been burdened with a daunting responsibility, Ruby. I advise you take some time, to think about how you will uphold it.

Weiss: How do you take your coffee?
Ruby: I.. I don't...
Weiss: Answer the question!
Ruby: Uhh, cream and five sugars!
Weiss: [sighs] Don't move.

Episode 11: Jaunedice

Nora: There we were...in the middle of the night...
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...

Nora: We'll break his legs!

Episode 12: Jaunedice Pt.2

Pyrrha: You know, I really will break his legs.

Jaune: [on rooftop] Pyrrha, I know I'm going through a hard time right now, but I'm not that depressed. [looks over the edge of the roof] I can always be a farmer or something...
Pyrrha: N-n-no!" [pushes Jaune away from the edge] That's not why I brought you up here!

Episode 13: Forever Fall
Jaune: I'm starting to think coming to this school was a bad idea...I'm a failure.
Ruby: Nope!
Jaune: Nope?
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?
Ruby: Nope!
Jaune: You know, you're not the easiest person to talk to about this kind of stuff.
Ruby: Nope!

Episode 14: Forever Fall Pt.2

Pyrrha: Well, Ruby has her speed, you have your glyphs. My Semblance is polarity.
Ruby: Whoa, you can control poles...
Weiss: No, you dunce! It means she has control over magnetism!
Ruby: Magnets are cool, too...

Pyrrha: You should come down! Ren made pancakes! No syrup, though - you can thank Nora for that!

Episode 15: The Stray

Weiss: I've heard that students visiting from Vacuo will be arriving by ship today. And, as a representative of Beacon, I feel as though it is my solemn duty to welcome them to this fine kingdom!
Blake: She wants to spy on them so she'll have the upper hand in the tournament.
Weiss: [scoffs] You can't prove that!

Sailor: You no-good stowaway!
Sun: Hey! A no-good stowaway would've been caught! I'm a great stowaway!

Weiss: [To Penny] Forgive me, but you hardly look the part.
Blake: Says the girl wearing a dress?
Weiss: It's a combat skirt!
Ruby: Yeah!
[Weiss and Ruby low-five]

Episode 16: Black and White

Yang: Weiss, I think we should hear her side of the story before we jump to any conclusions.
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!?

Yang: We're looking for our friend Blake.
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...

Sun: I stole you some food!
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.

[Blake appears behind with blade on throat]
Roman: What the-? Oh, for f-
Blake: [Cutting Roman off] Nobody move!

Roman: Well, hello, Red! Isn't it past your bedtime?

Ruby: Look Weiss, it's not what you think, she explained the whole thing. See, she doesn't actually have a bow, she has kitty ears and they're actually kind of cute...

Volume 2

Episode 1: Best Day Ever!

Mercury: I knew you were lost.
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.

Emerald: What was this place called again?
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?
Tukson: Yes.
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?
Tukson: Yes.
Emerald: And you know why we're here?
Tukson: Yes.
Emerald: So... are you going to fight back?
Tukson: ...Yes!

Ruby: [Places down huge binder labeled: BEST DAY EVER ACTVITIES!] -Ahem-, Sisters...Friends...Weiss.
Weiss: Hey!

Weiss: Did you steal my binder?
Ruby: I am not a crook.

Ruby: I'm talking about kicking off the semester with a bang!
Yang: I always kick my semesters off with a Yang! Eh? Guys? Am I right?
Nora: [Throws apple at Yang from offscreen] Boooooooooooooooo!

Sun: They're just in here. I'm really excited for you to meet them. So be cool, okay? You're gonna be cool, right?
Neptune: Dude.
[The camera pans up from Neptune's feet to his face. Neptune's teeth gleam as he smiles]
Sun: Good point.

Ruby: Justice will be swift! Justice will be painful! It will be...DELICIOUS!
Rest of Team RWBY: YEAH!

Glynda: Children, please... [adjusts glasses] Do not play with your food!

Roman: Oh, look! She sent the kids again! This is turning out just like the divorce!
Emerald: Spare us the thought of you procreating.
Roman: That was a joke.

Cinder: And you. [Gestures to Roman] Why wasn't this job done sooner?
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

Ironwood: But ask yourself this: Do you honestly believe your children can win a war? [Exits]
Ozpin: I hope they never have to.

Yang: Well, Weiss, it's your turn.
Weiss: I have... absolutely no idea what's going on.

Sun: 'Sup losers.
Ruby: Hey Sun!
Sun: Ruby, Yang, Blake...Ice Queen.
Weiss: Why does everyone keep calling me that?

Neptune: Uhh, aren't libraries for reading?
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.

Weiss: So Neptune, where are you from?
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!?

Weiss: Stop. [points to Blake] Lately you've been quiet, antisocial and moody!
Yang: Uh, have you met Blake?

Ruby: Okay, all in favor of becoming the youngest Huntresses to single-handedly taking down a corrupt organization conspiring against the Kingdom of Vale... say aye.
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

Ruby: Alright, guys, today's the day! The investigation begins!
Weiss: I'm glad to see we're taking this so seriously.
Yang: Hey, we've got a plan! That's... moderately serious.

Yang: [To Sun] How did you get up there?
Sun: Ah, it's easy; I do it all the time.
Weiss: You do what?!
Sun: I climb trees all the time!

Ruby: Sorry, Sun. We don't want to get friends involved if we don't have to.
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]
Neptune: 'Sup
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.

Ruby: Alright, I'll go with Weiss; Sun, you can go with Blake. And Neptune, you can go with Yang since she doesn't have a partner. Everyone good?
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...

Ruby: [Being bear hugged by Penny] I can see why your father would want to protect such a delicate flower!

Neptune: Whoa-ho-ho-ho, what a woman... [Sees Melanie and Miltiades Malachite besides him.] 'Sup?
Melanie and Miltia: [In sync] Hmph! Whatever. [Both walk away]

Blake: This is it.
Sun: You're sure?
Blake: [Death Glare]
Sun: Y'know, I'm just gonna take your word for it.

Blake: The masks are a symbol. Humanity wanted to make monsters out of us, so we chose to don the faces of monsters.
Sun: Grimm masks... That's kind of dark.
Blake: So was the guy who started it.
Sun: [sighs] Always sunshine and rainbows with you...

"Deerie": [Referring to Roman] What's a human doing here?!
Roman: I'm glad you asked, "Deerie"!

Roman: Now, I'll be the first to admit, humans... are the worst. [Points to self] Case in point. So, I understand why you would like to see us all locked away, or, better yet, killed!
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...

Junior: I haven't talked to him! I haven't even seen him since the night you first came in here. He paid up front, I lent him my men, and none of them ever. Came. Back.
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].

Sun: [While being chased by Roman's Mecha] So you wouldn't happen to have... oh, I don't know... some form of backup?!
Blake: On it!
[Scene cuts to Weiss]
Blake: [On Weiss' Scroll] Everyone! If you can hear me, we need back-
Sun: Heeeelp!
[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.

Roman: [After the Atlesian Paladin-290 gets totaled by Yang, brushes himself off] Just got this thing cleaned...

Roman: Ladies, Ice Queen...
Weiss: Hey!

Yang: So I guess he got a new henchman...
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

Yang:Blake, we're worried about you. This investigation is starting to mess with your head.
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!

Jaune: [Knocking on door] Oh, come on, open the door! I promise not to sing.
Weiss: [Gives up and opens door]
Jaune: [Singing] I lied!
Weiss: [Facepalm]

Jaune: [Singing] Weiss Schnee, will you accompany me, to the dance on...(Beat) Sunday!
Weiss: Are you done?
Jaune: Yes?
Weiss: No [Closes door and looks at Ruby and Yang] What?
Yang: And that is why they call you the Ice Queen.

Jaune: If you don't get a date to the dance, I'll wear a dress.

Mercury: I hate waiting.
Cinder: Don't worry, Mercury. We have a fun weekend ahead of us.

Episode 6: Burning the Candle

Weiss: I need you to pick a tablecloth.
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!

Yang: Weiss! I thought we agreed. No doilies!
Weiss: If I don't get doilies, you don't get fog machines.

Weiss: What are you two wearing?
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: Which is why I wanted to get your advice on... girls.
Ren: Girls?
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"...
Nora: OH! [Puts headphones on]

Ren: Jaune, what is this all about?
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!

Nora: Practice what you preach, Pyrrha.

Yang: I'm not asking you to stop. Just please, get some rest. Not just for you, but for the people you care about. And if you feel like coming out tomorrow, I'll save you a dance.

Yang: Ooohh, you look beautiful!
Ruby: Can we have a serious talk about how Weiss fights in these?

Sun: Stupid... dumb... neck trap!
Blake: I knew you'd look better in a tie.

Ruby: Soooo, what do we do now?
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!

Ozpin: Not enjoying yourself?
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.

Ozpin: It's not every day that friends are able to come together like this. Time has a way of testing our bonds, but it's nights like these that can help keep them stronger than ever. Nights like these are ones we'll never forget.

Yang: You guys are just in time!
Mercury: [Walking in with Emerald] Wouldn't miss it for the world.

Episode 7: Dance Dance Infiltration

Jaune: (joining Ruby) I see you're hiding at the punch bowl as well.
Ruby: Yup.
Jaune: (In mock seriousness) To the socially awkward.
[Ruby giggles, and they clink their glasses.]

Jaune: [About to confront Neptune; to Ruby] Hold. My. Punch.

Jaune: [Flabbergasted at how Pyrrha doesn't have a date to the dance] But that's- You're Pyrrha Nikos! How could nobody ask you?
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.

Neptune: [After their heart-to-heart] Thanks; you're a pretty cool guy, Jaune.
Jaune: Alright, don't lie to my face. [Returns the fistbump]

Ruby: [to Yang] I'm sure we can handle anything that's thrown at us. [Laughter is heard from below, and they look] ...except for that.
[Laughter continues as the scene moves to Pyrrha, who turns to see what everyone is laughing at]]
Pyrrha: ...Jaune?
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.

Nora: [Making exaggerated motions] Ren! This! Is Happening!
Ren: Wait... [Looks at the fourth wall] what is happening?

Security Soldier 1: Hey man, do you have a wireless password?
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.

Mercury: And how's your night been?
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.


Red like roses fills my dreams and brings me to the place you rest.
White is cold and always yearning, burdened by a royal test.
Black the beast descends from shadows.
Yellow beauty burns gold...
— "Red Like Roses"

Born with no life,
Into subjugation.
Treated like a worthless animal,
Stripped of all rights,
Just a lesser being,
Crushed by cruel ruthless Human rule.
— "From Shadows" (Single version)

There's a day when all courage collapses,
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.
— "I May Fall"
