- The conversation between Gin and Tousen in Chapter 1."I remember what he said. Help me up. And please stop smiling.""You're blind. You can't see me smiling.""Gin, you're always smiling."
- [Gin] grinned wider. He did like to smile. Maybe it was his default facial expression. For some reason it threw people off guard, which wasn't a problem at all. One time he squinted his eyes nearly shut and walked around for a day. He'd made people really uncomfortable with that, which was even better. Of course, Rangiku had taken one look at his squinty-eyed self and walloped him across the face. So that had been the end of that.
