Jonathan: Hey! Hey! Who are you talking to? They're busy following orders!
Brauner: (turns to face Jonathan and Charlotte, surprised) You! You two! What have you done to my daughters?
Charlotte: Sadly for you, they've regained their senses. Thanks to my magic.
Brauner: How can this be?! How could you two understand? Those two are the reincarnations of my dead daughters!
Jonathan: I don't care! Being a family means being connected by heart. Ties of blood and soul is insignificant. When I learned why my father did what he did, I understood. You used a curse to manipulate your "dear daughters"! Now that's sad!
Brauner: (snaps and angrily breaks his cane) And now I must suffer the loss of my daughters to humanity again. I'll show you how that feels. And then I'll make those girls my daughters once more!
Jonathan: Now that's a problem. Sorry, can't let you do that.
Brauner: Behold, the power of my painting! (engages Jonathan and Charlotte in battle and they defeat him and bring him to his knees) Damn you, humans... You selfishly start wars and despoil the earth. Perhaps justice wasn't on my side but I will never admit that it was on yours.
Jonathan: Fine either way. After all, "justice" is just a matter of perspective. The fact is, you're just a coward who couldn't face the truth. You couldn't accept your fate, so you just abandoned humanity to get what you wanted.
Brauner: I just... I just wanted to protect my family.
But it's not logical! Don't you see? He's much too scared to even try... I—I'm much too scared! No, it's not logical! NOOO! NOT! LOGICAL! NOT! LOGICAL!

Mummymon: (after MaloMyotismon has tortured and murdered Arukenimon in front of him) GASP! Arukenimon?
MaloMyotismon: I'm afraid she's gone to pieces. All I did was grant her her wish to get as far away from me as possible. Well, she'll never be near me again.
Mummymon: You destroyed her... How could you?! SNAKE BANDAGE! (hurls Snake Bandage at MaloMyotismon and wraps him up in bandages)
MaloMyotismon: (flexes and breaks free of Snake Bandage) You can't hide your fears either. You think you don't stand a chance against me, and you know what? You're right. You don't.
Mummymon: You don't scare me! You've taken away my Arukenimon, and now I'm going to make you pay for what you did to her!
MaloMyotismon: Hah. What do you plan to do, wrap me in another useless Snake Bandage? You scare me even less than these DigiDestined fools from the other world.
Mummymon: Then I will teach you to fear me!! (fires at MaloMyotismon)

That was an order! Steiner's assault was an order! Who do you think you are to dare disobey an order I give? So this is what it has come to! The military has been lying to me. Everybody has been lying to me, even the SS! Our generals are the scum of the German people! Not a shred of honor! They call themselves generals! Years at military academy just to learn how to hold a knife and fork! For years the military has hindered my plans! They've put every kind of obstacle in my way! What I should have done is liquidate all the high-ranking officers, like Stalin did! I never attended an academy, yet I have conquered Europe all by myself! Traitors! I've been betrayed and deceived from the very beginning! What a monstrous betrayal of the German people! But all those traitors will pay! They will pay with their own blood! They shall drown in their own blood!

Iris: Hah... hahaha...!
Iris: Ah, I get it now! So that's what's going on! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Lilli: What's wrong with her?
Tia: Iris, have you lost your mind!?
Iris: I inherited Rosenkreuz's magical prowess and the abundance of magic that he acquired over the course of his life. That more than qualified me to take my rightful place at the pinnacle of this world. But there was one thing I didn't inherit. The very thing that defined him most as an individual: his ability to tap into the strength of others'.
Iris: You've gained quite a few new abilities in such a short while, haven't you? I was a fool to have let that gone unnoticed. You are his other incarnation, "the Blade of Rosenkreuz."
Tia: I'm Rosenkreuz's...?
Iris: Hah... hahaha...! Even with all this brainpower, I couldn't recognize that you were the missing piece. I may have inherited his wisdom and power, but what I've been looking for... his spirit... resides within you. Fancy that, Spiritia.
Iris: I think I may start believing in fate now. Ahh, the feeling of hating another with every fiber in your being... it's such an amazing rush...! Oh, I'm so anxious to rip you apart! What about you? You have the power of the world's finest magician coursing through your veins. How does it feel? Exhilarating? Intoxicating? Exuberant? Or perhaps such a puny vessel can't fully comprehend the magnificence of it all?
Lilli: Tia will always be Tia! So there!
Tia: Thanks, Lilli. I don't really know if I inherited Rosenkreuz's spirit... if I'm his other incarnation or whatnot... or if I inherited his ability to tap into the strength of others'... but none of that matters when it comes to magic. Freu... Zorne... Trau... Luste... Grolla... Sichte... Liebea... Schwer... and Lilli... it's because they support me that I have the will to fight. They're the source of my power. That much, I know for sure!
Iris: The world needs only one Rosenkreuz! I'll let you join the original in the afterlife!

Captain Picard: You know, there are some words I've known since I was a schoolboy. "With the first link, the chain is forged. The first speech censured, the first thought forbidden, the first freedom denied, chains us all irrevocably." Those words were uttered by Judge Aaron Sati, as wisdom and warning. The first time any man's freedom is trodden on, we're all damaged. I fear that day-
Sati: How dare you? You, who consort with Romulans, invoke my father's name to support your traitorous arguments? It is an offense to everything I hold dear, and to hear those words used to subvert the United Federation of Planets...my father was a great man. His name stands for integrity and principle. You dirty his name when you speak it. He loved the Federation, but you, Captain, corrupt it. You undermine our very way of life. I will expose you for what you are!

I don't believe it! He isn't human!
Always the same. I have to do everything myself. Typical. Can't rely on anyone these days. All too busy reading about dying pop stars and Iron Man's pants.
You two! Report to the Quartermaster and get yourselves a pair of dresses, on the double!
I always knew it'd come down to this. I always have to be the man. Good old Norman Osborn. He'll save the day. He'll bail us out. He'll be the hero. Norman will make the hard choices, Norman has no feelings. Norman will make the girl pregnant and then snap her neck in public. Norman won't mind, he'll do what it takes. Norman will take care of everything, don't you lift a damn finger to help or, god forbid, do your damn job...
There's a space monster and a mad swordsman loose in the base - shall we trust the huge security complement and the team of superhumans to deal with it? Oh, no. Let's make a complete dog's breakfast of the operation. So Norman has to clean things up. I'm a fricking martyr to my own innate heroism, is what I am. Norman Osborn, America's last hero. That's what I am.
One day I'm going to run this country, and do you think anyone will appreciate me then? Of course they won't. Of course they won't. It'll be "Mister President Osborn sir, I don't have the strength to take out my garbage. Could you do it for me?" That's what it'll be like. "President Osborn, I'd love to be able to do anything competently, but my family tree looks like two sticks jutting out of a dead raccoon." Hitler never had this kind of trouble. People just did as he told them. Must've been nice.
Aha. Just where I left it. Because I couldn't trust anyone to do it for me, could I. There, just as I left it. Even the mask, not in my drawer at all. Down here. Safe. Sleeping. Waiting. Ahh, I'm so glad I never washed this particular costume. It smells like death, blondes and victory. Maybe this could be my presidential uniform. Do presidents have uniforms? I suppose not. Still, since I'd be the president, I could do what I like, really...
I'd rewrite all this superhuman registration junk, I'll tell you that for nothing. "Are you a self-proclaimed super-hero?" 'Why shucks, sir, I sure am a regular guy in bad underpants who fights crime without understanding one damn thing about how the world really works, yes.' "Excellent, I send you now to a concentration camp where you will be sterilized, lobotomized, tenderized and pasteurized. So says president Goblin!" Actually, that's a bit more Doctor Doom, isn't it? Still, the idea's sound. Note to self: give naked dictation more often. The ideas seem to flow more freely.
So glad I decided to keep the old kit handy. One more thing... There. Now let's take care of business. And then I think I shall viciously beat some complete strangers at random. They're bound to have done something to deserve it at some point, after all. Swordsman, Swordsman... what shall we do with you? Aside from kill you, of course. Of course I have to kill you. It's what the little people expect me to do. This is how I display my heroism.
