    Cait Sith: Miss Jessie?! What are you doing getting dressed in Rufus' bedroom?
    Rufus: (grabbing Cait Sith) You'd better relay a message to Mr. Tuesti. He'd better program some goddamn boundaries into your system if he knows what's good for him. If it wasn't for the fact that you've got your uses, I'd rip out all your circuits right now.
    Cait Sith: I'll send him the memo ASAP, sir. Just don't hurt me, please?

    Aeris: This is all your fault.
    Ifalna: Oh, Honey, they're already arguing like we do.
