    Dantes: Good answer.
    Gudao: You're part of it now too, whether you like it or not. Chaldea is your home now
    Dantes: I suppose so. We made a contract, and you have my word. I will unleash my wrath on your enemies for humanity's sake.

  • Emiya having a talk with Mordred in hope to resolve the issue between her and Arturia.

  • When it comes to Gudao's plan to dividing the team into two, especially sending Mashu to Gabby's team, everyone was concerned and doubtful about his plan, until Mordred shuts everyone up and tells them about her experience with him in London, how she trusted him then and trusts him now.
    Mordred: I put my trust in your insane strategies many times in London. We could have died many times over, but we didn't! So I will continue to follow because you proved I can believe in you. You're a great master! Do you all not trust him and his plan? I don't think Gudao would be pushing this if he had any other options.

  • Kiritsugu encouraging Arturia in his own way.

    Mashu: Thank you, Lancelot. I look forward to the end of this singularity so we can get back to Chaldea.
  • Though it's a bit short, Arturia and Mordred finally have a decent conversation with each other, especially how Arturia expresses her worry for Mordred when she was nearly attacked midair. Even though they have to leave to confront the Lion King, they promised to each other they'd finish their conversation.

Chapter XVI

  • Ozymandias' last words before he drops his temple on the Lion King's barrier:
    Raise your head, Nitocris… For there is nothing to fear. My temple will still guard my people, as will the sphinx. The armies shall continue their conquest… and I shall deal a decisive blow against the Lion King! This is our victory! So let it be known, Nitocris, if you are to still hope for anything…
    …Then hope, one day, we pharaohs will be reunited once more and see what Chaldea is like with our own eyes… May my twin receive this… memorial essence… someday, to remind those masters how much they owe us for this day!
  • EMIYA and Arturia share a Big Damn Kiss right before the latter heads out to confront the Lion King with the former professing that even if he won't be joining her, he has no doubt that Arturia will be the one to come out on top.

Chapter XVII

  • Arturia declaring Mordred as a fine knight and she is also glad Mordred stands beside her once more.
  • Regardless of what happened in the past between Lancelot and Gawain, Gawain still defends him:

    Chaldean Gawain: Of course I do! I always see it in my sleep! But I also saw much in this singularity! He has made mistakes in the past, as we all have. Maybe I'll never be able to forgive him. Maybe I won't forget. But I definitely won't forget how much he's been trying to earn his redemption through sheer loyalty and consideration to our king.
    • After that, Gawain turns to Lancelot:
      I wish to defeat myself… I would have liked to do it alone, but I know I can't… Lancelot, I need your help.
    • And Lancelot nodded without hesitation.

Fragment 24

  • The interaction between Dr. Roman, Alice, and Jackie. It's just so adorable that the two girls want to play games with him.

    • Especially this:

  • Jeanne and Joan's meeting and subsequent talk, showing they're Not So Different, including the fact that both are a Friend to All Children.

  • Remember the Guidebook that Joan gave to Arturia Lily? Well, as Arturia finally revert back to her original age, she assured Joan that she actually like the gift, seeing this book would be helpful for her.
  • Joan giving a gift to Jeanne, and the sisters hugged.

  • Kiyohime and Tamamo pushing aside their love rivalry to start over as friends.
    Kiyohime: Maybe… but then I was a blind, coercive, and clingy bitch, so who am I to judge…
    Tamamo: But you won't be anymore. I hope when this ordeal is over, you'll be the strong, graceful girl I remembered.
    Kiyohime: No, Tamamo. I will be the strong, graceful friend of yours again. I'm still getting over this crush on Gudao, but it won't stand between us anymore, nor anyone in the future. I promise... I want to be great friends again!

  • Jekyll having conversations with Gilles, understanding what it's like to have a fiendish personality within him.
    Gilles: I do not appreciate that side of me. I wish nothing to do with that evil any longer. I have more than enough within me that I want to be rid of.
    Jekyll: Whether or not we want it is not our decision. It is the simple duality of human nature, Gilles. I experimented with that arrogantly myself… and tried to get rid of it, yet I made it worse. I refused to acknowledge it was really a part of me, and thus helped it sever itself to become its own horrendous identity. Whether I wanted it or not, Hyde was a facet of myself I had long since buried and refused to acknowledge.
    Gilles: Are you saying I should accept it? Accept a child murdering… fiendish personality in my head?
    Jekyll: If it arrives… it is only your choice. It is a burden I wouldn't wish on anyone. If It is any solace, we have many fine examples of inspiration. The avengers in particular have shown us that even if they embody hatred and retribution, they can still be who they desire to become.
    Gilles:
    Jekyll: But we only have the absolute worst in mind… What if you only get memories, and use them to be a better person? Good cannot exist without evil to measure it, but we can use it as a way to redeem in the future.
    Gilles: I hope it comes to that then. Thank you, Jekyll.
