* In Dead Space 2, after Ellie finds the gunship and is really glad that, hey, they're going to ''survive'', Isaac looks at her and simply says "One of us will" before locking the controls on the gunship and detaching it from the station. Ellie is in ''tears'', and Isaac's not taking it well either, but the fact that he's going so far to ensure her safety, after admitting that he simply can't let go of Nicole, is surprisingly powerful.
