Beware of unmarked spoilers while reading through these quotes.
Episode 1: Ruby Rose
Ozpin: But perhaps victory is in the simpler things that you've long forgotten. Things that require a smaller, more honest soul.
Ruby: Are you... robbing me?
Henchman 2: Yes!
Episode 2: The Shining Beacon
Ruby: But... wouldn't it weigh the same?
Jaune: [dejectedly] Yeah, it does...
Episode 3: The Shining Beacon, Pt.2
Weiss: [seemingly enthusiastic] Yeah! And we can paint our nails and try on clothes and talk about cute boys, like tall, blonde, and ''scraggly'' over there! [Jaune, in the background, picks up on the mention]
Ruby: Wow, really?!
Weiss: [short Death Glare, deadpan] No.
Ruby: [not looking up] I don't think Dad would approve of all the boys, though.
Yang: I know I do! [purrs as she watches several muscular, shirtless guys]
Blake: Yes—it's lovely! Almost as lovely as this book... that I will continue to read... as soon as you leave.
Weiss: She's a hazard to my health!
Episode 4: The First Step
Nora: Yes, Ren?
Ren: I don't think sloths make a lot of noise.
Nora: [thinks about this for a moment] That's why it's perfect! No one will suspect we're working together!
Jaune: Not in the slightest, snow angel.
Weiss: This is Pyrrha.
Pyrrha: Hello again!
Weiss: Pyrrha graduated top of her class at Sanctum!
Jaune: Never heard of it.
Weiss: [scoffs] She's won the Mistral Region Tournaments four years in a row! A new record!
Jaune: The what?
Weiss: [waving her arms rapidly in anger] She's on the front of every Pumpkin Pete's Marshmallow Flakes box!
Jaune: [gasping suddenly] That's you?! But they only do that for star athletes and cartoon characters!
Pyrrha: Yeah, that was pretty cool...sadly the cereal isn't very good for you.
Ozpin: Good! Now, take your positions.
Jaune: Uh, sir? I've got, um... a question. So, this landing... strategy thing... Uh, wha-what is it? You're, like, dropping us off or something?
Ozpin: No. You will be falling.
Jaune: Oh, uh, I see... So, did you, like, hand out parachutes for us?
Ozpin: No. You will be using your own landing strategy.
Jaune: Uh-huh... Yeah... So, what exactly is a landing strateg-[launched through the air]YYY!
Episode 5: The First Step, Pt.2
[Weiss then comes across Jaune tagged to a tree]
Jaune: [struggling to free himself] Come on, come on! Stupid..!
Weiss: [as she turns to walk away, she passes Ruby and pulls her by her hood] By no means does this make us friends.
Ruby: [overjoyed as she's dragged away] You came back!
Jaune: [waving after the girls] Wait! Come back! Who's going to get me down from here?!
Pyrrha: [below] Jaune? Do you... have any spots left on your team?
Jaune: [crossing his arms] Very funny...
Episode 6: The Emerald Forest
[Yang's face goes blank as she sees a single strand of blonde hair float down and touch the ground]
Yang: You... [Her eyes turn red and the two Ursa exchange confused looks]
Yang: YOU MONSTERS!!!
Pyrrha: Your aura.
Pyrrha: Jaune, do you... know what aura is?
Jaune: [waves the question off, avoiding eye contact] Psch! Of course I do! Do you know what aura is?
through this we become a paragon of virtue and glory to rise above all.
Infinite in distance and unbound by death,
I release your soul, and by my shoulder, protect thee."
Episode 7: The Emerald Forest, PT.2
Jaune: [Sighs] Pyrrha, I made the torch. Could you at least humor me for maybe five more feet?
[Trips and falls into a puddle, extinguishing the torch]
Pyrrha: Do you feel that?
Jaune: Soul-crushing regret?
Episode 8: Players and Pieces
Blake: [After Nora makes her entrance riding an Ursa] Did that girl just ride in on an Ursa?
Blake: [After Pyrrha enters the clearing, being chased by a Deathstalker] Did she just run all the way here with a Deathstalker on her tail?
Yang: [Finally exploding] I can't take it anymore! Could everyone just chill out for two seconds before something crazy happens again?
[A timer counts to two seconds...and then Weiss falls from the sky]
Nora: [Pops up between the two sisters who are about to hug] Nora!
Jaune: Just...dropping in! [He makes the mistake of looking down] Oh god noooooo...
[Beat, then they fall simultaneously; Jaune lands on his face, then Weiss lands on his back a full second later.]
Weiss: My hero.
Jaune: My back...
Ruby: Not if I can help it! [charges]
Weiss: And dimwitted, and hyperactive, and don't even get me started on your fighting style... and I suppose I can be a bit...difficult...but if we're going to do this, we're going to have to do this together. So if you quit trying to show off, I'll be...nicer.
Ruby: I'm not trying to show off. I want you to know I can do this.
Weiss: You're fine.
Ruby: [Sighs in relief] Normal knees...
Ruby: Think you can make the shot?
Weiss: Hmph. Can I?
Ruby: ...can y-
Weiss: Of course I can!
Episode 9: The Badge and The Burden
Weiss: What?! Did you say 9 o'clock?
Weiss: It's 8:55, you dunce!
Episode 10: The Badge and The Burden PT.2
Weiss: So you would just blindly accept his decision even after seeing how exceptional I am?
Peter: With all due respect, your exceptional skill on the battlefield is matched only by your poor attitude.
Weiss: How dare you!
Peter: My point exactly. I see a girl before me who has spent her entire life getting exactly what she wanted.
Weiss: That's not even remotely true!" [Peter looks at Weiss with doubt] Well... not entirely true.
Ruby: I.. I don't...
Weiss: Answer the question!
Ruby: Uhh, cream and five sugars!
Weiss: [sighs] Don't move.
Episode 11: Jaunedice
Ren: It was day.
Nora: We were surrounded by Ursae.
Ren: They were beowolves.
Nora: [shoots to her feet] DOZENS OF THEM!
Ren: Two of 'em.
Nora: But they were no match. And in the end Ren and I took them down and made a boatload of lien selling ursae skin rugs!
Ren: [sighs] She's been having this recurring dream for nearly a month now...
Episode 12: Jaunedice Pt.2
Pyrrha: N-n-no!" [pushes Jaune away from the edge] That's not why I brought you up here!
Episode 13: Forever Fall
Ruby: Nope! You're a leader now, Jaune. You're not allowed to be a failure.
Jaune: But... what if I'm a failure at being a leader?
Jaune: You know, you're not the easiest person to talk to about this kind of stuff.
Episode 14: Forever Fall Pt.2
Ruby: Whoa, you can control poles...
Weiss: No, you dunce! It means she has control over magnetism!
Ruby: Magnets are cool, too...
Episode 15: The Stray
Blake: She wants to spy on them so she'll have the upper hand in the tournament.
Weiss: [scoffs] You can't prove that!
Sun: Hey! A no-good stowaway would've been caught! I'm a great stowaway!
Blake: Says the girl wearing a dress?
Weiss: It's a combat skirt!
[Weiss and Ruby low-five]
Episode 16: Black and White
Weiss: I think that when we hear it, you'll all realize I was right!
Penny: And I think Weiss' hair looks wonderful today!
Ruby: Aaaah! Penny! Where did you come from!?
Penny: Ooooh, you mean the Faunus girl!
Ruby: Wait, how did you know that?
Penny: Uhh, the cat ears?" [points to her head]
Yang: What cat ears? She wears a... boooowww...
[Beat, Tumbleweed blows by with wind]
Ruby: [Whispering] She does like tuna a lot...
Blake: Do you always break the law without giving a second thought?
Sun: Hey, weren't you in a cult or something?
Blake: [Death Glare]
Sun: ...okay, too soon.
Roman: What the-? Oh, for f-
Blake: [Cutting Roman off] Nobody move!
- (Roman walks into a large warehouse with a shadowy interior. He goes over to a table and places down a case of mysterious contents, sighing in tiredness.)Cinder: (off-screen) How very disappointing, Roman.Roman: (turning around suddenly) Whoa! Hehe... I wasn't expecting to see you guys so soon...Cinder: (flanked by Mercury and Emerald) We were expecting... more from you.Roman: (laughing a little before getting serious) Hey! You were the ones who suggested working with those stupid mutts from the White Fang.Cinder: And you will continue to do so. (summons a fireball in her hand and steps out of the darkness with her two companions) We have big plans for you, Roman. All we ask is... a little cooperation.
Emerald: Mercury, I will seriously pay you to shut up.
Mercury: That's not your money.
Emerald: But it can be yours for 5 minutes of silence.
Tukson: Tukson's Book Trade.
Emerald: And you're Tukson?
Tukson: That's right.
Emerald: So then I take it that you're the one that came up with the catchphrase?
Mercury: And, what was it again?
Tukson: [sighs] "Tukson's Book Trade, home to every book under the sun."
Mercury: Except the "Third Crusade".
Tukson: It's just a catchphrase.
Mercury: It's false advertising!
Emerald: You shouldn't make a promise you can't keep, Tukson. [Mercury starts to dim the lights] I hear that you're planning on leaving. Moving all the way to Vacuo. Your brothers in the White Fang won't be happy to hear that. And neither are we... You know who we are, don't you?
Emerald: And you know why we're here?
Emerald: So... are you going to fight back?
Ruby: I am not a crook.
Yang: I always kick my semesters off with a Yang! Eh? Guys? Am I right?
Nora: [Throws apple at Yang from offscreen] Boooooooooooooooo!
[The camera pans up from Neptune's feet to his face. Neptune's teeth gleam as he smiles]
Sun: Good point.
Rest of Team RWBY: YEAH!
Emerald: Spare us the thought of you procreating.
Roman: That was a joke.
Roman: Ummmmm. [Points to a stack of dust containers] Eh?, [Points to a bigger stack of dust containers] Ehh?, [Points to whole warehouse] EEEHHHHHHHHHHHH?!?! Sorry if I've been busy stealing every speck of Dust in the Kingdom!
Mercury: You're an inspiration to every punk with a gun and a ski mask.
Episode 2: Welcome to Beacon
Ozpin: I hope they never have to.
Weiss: I have... absolutely no idea what's going on.
Ruby: Hey Sun!
Sun: Ruby, Yang, Blake...Ice Queen.
Weiss: Why does everyone keep calling me that?
Ren: [at background] Thank you!
Nora: [wakes up] Pancakes!
Sun: Shut up, don't be a nerd.
Neptune: Geh, geh, geh, geh! "Intellectual", okay? Thank you.
Neptune: Haven. [Approaches Weiss.] And I don't believe I've caught your name, snow angel.
Weiss: Um, I'm Weiss.
Jaune: Are you kidding me!?
Yang: Uh, have you met Blake?
Yang: Yes! I love it when you're feisty!
Weiss: Well, I suppose it could be fun.
Ruby: [disappointed] None of you said aye...
Episode 3: A Minor Hiccup
Weiss: I'm glad to see we're taking this so seriously.
Yang: Hey, we've got a plan! That's... moderately serious.
Sun: Ah, it's easy; I do it all the time.
Weiss: You do what?!
Sun: I climb trees all the time!
Sun: Psh! That's dumb! We should always get friends involved! That's why I brought Neptune! (gestures out the window)
[Team RWBY looks out window]
Ruby: How did you even get up here?
Neptune: I have my ways.
Neptune: Seriously, though, can I come in? We're like, really high up right now.
Weiss: Actually, Ruby, why don't you go with Yang? After all, she is your sister.
Ruby: But, Weiss, who would go with you, then?
Weiss: Well... I guess Neptune could come with me.
Ruby: [Chuckes] Nah [Drags Weiss away with her]
Weiss: [Being dragged away] But!...But!....
Episode 4: Painting the Town...
Melanie and Miltia: [In sync] Hmph. What-ever. [Both walk away]
Sun: You're sure?
Blake: [Death Glare]
Sun: Y'know, I'm just gonna take your word for it.
Sun: Grimm masks... That's kind of dark.
Blake: So was the guy who started it.
Sun: [sighs] Always sunshine and rainbows with you...
Sun: [To Blake] So, is he going somewhere with this?
Roman: But, before the claws come out, I'd like to mention the fact that you and I all have a common enemy: the ones in control; the people pulling the strings; the dirty, rotten humans that run our kingdoms! Government; military; even the schools: they're all to blame for your lot in life! And they're all pests that need to be dealt with! Fortunately, I'm the best exterminator around... No offense to any rodents in the room. [Snaps and a curtain drops to reveal a Atlesian Paladin-290]
Sun: Whoa, that's a big robot...
Neptune: [Rushes into the scene] So where did they go?
Junior: What kind of stupid question is that? They never came back! [To Yang] Who is this guy?
Yang: Don't worry about him; worry about me if I don't find out what I want!
Junior: I already told you everything! Torchwick hired my boys, and I guess he wasn't happy with them, [Shouts, facing toward his men] which is something I can relate to! [Henchmen grumbles in background].
Blake: On it!
[Scene cuts to Weiss]
Blake: [On Weiss' Scroll] Everyone! If you can hear me, we need back-
[Scene cuts to Ruby]
Sun: Big robot! And it's big! Really big!
Ruby: Oh, I am not missing this!
[Scene cuts to Yang and Neptune]
Sun: That Torchwick guy is in it! But not, like, it didn't eat him; he's, like, controlling it or something!
Yang: Where are you guys?
[At Background, Blake and Sun passes by the duo, chased by the Mecha]
Neptune: I think that was them.
Yang: Yeah, I got it.
Weiss: Yeah, I guess she really made our plans... fall apart!
[Ruby snickers, Blakes just walks away]
Yang: No. Just... no.
Weiss: What- But you do it!
Yang: There's a time and a place for jokes.
Weiss: Was this not it?
Yang: No, it just wasn't very good. [Walks off]
Weiss: Well, at least I'm trying!
Episode 5: Extracurricular
Weiss:You can't sleep, you hardly eat, and to be honest, your grades have been suffering.
Blake: You think I care about grades? People's lives are at stake!
Weiss: [Gives up and opens door]
Jaune: [Singing] I lied!
Weiss: Are you done?
Weiss: No [Closes door and looks at Ruby and Yang] What?
Yang: And that is why they call you the Ice Queen.
Cinder: Don't worry, Mercury. We have a fun weekend ahead of us.
Episode 6: Burning the Candle
Ruby: [Looks at the two very similar-looking cloths] Aren't they both the same?
Weiss: [sighs] I don't even know why I asked!
Sun: Uuhhh... this? [Points to his usual outfit]
Neptune: Ignore him, for he knows not what he says.
Sun: Hey, I may have moved to Mistral, but I grew up in Vacuo. It's not exactly a shirt-and-tie kind of place.
Yang: Yeah, we noticed.
Jaune: I just... don't know... how to... girls. Um, I-I guess what I'm asking is... Well, how did you and Nora... y'know...
Ren: Uh... uh... uh...
Nora: [Clears throat] We're actually not "together-together"...
Jaune: NORA I SAID HEADPHONES ON!
Nora: OH! [Puts headphones on]
Jaune: [Sighs deeply] It's Weiss. I'm completely head-over-heels for her, and she won't even give me a chance. She's cold, but she's also incredible. She's smart, and graceful, and talented. I mean, have you heard her sing? I-I just wish she's take me seriously, y'know? I wish I could tell her how I feel without messing it all up.
Pyrrha: [Off-screen] Then do it.
Jaune: [Looks up to see Pyrrha in the doorway, with Ren and Nora doing the same] Uh, wha?
Pyrrha: [Walking into the room] Tell her exactly what you said. No ridiculous schemes, no pick-up lines. Just... be honest.
Jaune: But what if I-
Pyrrha: Jaune. [Smiles] You can't get it wrong if it's the truth.
Jaune: [Looks up with a new confidence] You're right. [Stands up] Thanks, Pyrrha! [Looks back to his bed as he goes out] Good talk, Ren!
Ruby: Can we have a serious talk about how Weiss fights in these?
Blake: I knew you'd look better in a tie.
Yang: Just have fun! [Walks away with Weiss]
Ruby: Does that mean I can change out of these stupid things and into my hood now? [No response] Stupid lady stilts!
Ruby: No, no, everything's fine! I'm just not much of a fancy pantsy... dancey girl.
Ozpin: Well, you can't spend your whole life on the battlefield, even if you may want to.
Ruby: Yeah, that lesson's been floating around a lot lately.
Ozpin: If you think about it, fighting and dancing aren't so different. Two partners interlocked, although one wrong move on the ballroom merely leads to a swollen foot.
Ruby: [Looking at her own feet] Or a twisted ankle.
Mercury: [Walking in with Emerald] Wouldn't miss it for the world.
Episode 7: Dance Dance Infiltration
Jaune: (In mock seriousness) To the socially awkward.
[Ruby giggles, and they clink their glasses.]
Pyrrha: I've been blessed with incredible talents and opportunities. I'm constantly surrounded by love, and praise... But when you're placed on a pedestal like that for so long, you become separated from the people that put you there in the first place. Everyone assumes I'm too good for them. That I'm on a level they simply can't attain. It's become impossible to form any sort of meaningful relationship with people. That's what I like about you. When we met, you didn't even know my name... you treated me just like anyone else. And thanks to you, I've made friendships that will last a lifetime. I guess... you're the kind of guy I wish I was here with: someone who saw me for me.
Neptune: That about sums it up, yeah.
Jaune: Well... I certainly feel a lot better about myself.
Jaune: Alright, don't lie to my face. [Returns the fistbump]
[Laughter continues as the scene moves to Pyrrha, who turns to see what everyone is laughing at]]
Jaune: [Wearing a dress with no sign of embarrassment whatsoever] Eh, a promise is a promise.
[Beat, where Pyrrha desperately tries not to laugh, smile growing wider by the second]
Pyrrha: [Laughing hard] Jaune! You didn't have to!
Jaune: Hey, an Arc never goes back on his word. Now do you wanna stand there and laugh at me... or do you wanna dance?
Pyrrha: [Taking his hand] I would love to dance.
Ren: Wait... [Aside Glance] what is happening?
Security Soldier 2: It's 'BEACON', but replace the 'E' with a '3', and add a # symbol at the end.
[Later, after Cinder entered the elevator with them, knocking them out and taking the tablet]
Cinder: That's handy.
Cinder: Mmm... a little more exciting than expected.
Mercury: Should we be worried?
Cinder: Hardly... They'll be scratching their heads long after we finished what we came here for.
Mercury: So then what now?
Cinder: Enjoy the rest of the night. After all, it is a party.
Nora: Of course! [gestures to each of her teammates] We've got a world-renowned fighter on our team, one's basically a ninja, I can bench FIVE of me... Jaune... We've trained all year, our weapons are AWESOME. Glynda barely yells at us anymore, and uh... Jaune!
Ren: [to Jaune] Are you going to take that?
Jaune: [face on the table and still feeling nauseous] She's not wrong...
Nora: I'm kidding. He knows I'm kidding.
Ren: [deadpan] So, yeah, we're feeling pretty good.
Emerald: Tch. As if we didn't already know.
Cinder: Oh, come now. Even if you know how a story ends, that doesn't make it any less entertaining to watch.
Episode 2: New Challengers
Jaune: Trying to have a team meeting here. Thank you very little.
Nora: Yeah! Team ears only!
Brawnz: We're in the middle of a fight!
Jaune: And we're in the middle of a conversation!! What don't you get about that!?
Pyrrha: Um, Jaune?
Jaune: Yes Pyrrha?
Pyrrha: I think he means that we're all in the middle of a fight.
Jaune: Ugh [sigh] Nora... just hit 'em with the hammer.
Nora: [delighted, then grinning] Got it.
Port: No, well earned. What you said is stupid.
Episode 3: It's Brawl In The Family
Winter: I'm standing right before you.
Qrow: [squints] So it would seem.
Winter: You realize you just destroyed Atlas military property.
Qrow: [sarcastically] Oh! Oh, I'm sorry. See, I mistook this for some sort of... sentient garbage.
Winter: What were you thinking?!
Ironwood: If you were one of my men, I'd have you shot!
Qrow: If I was one of your men, I'd shoot myself.
Ironwood: ...So then, what would you suggest we do?
Ozpin: ...I suggest we find our guardian.
Episode 4: Lessons Learned
Ruby: They do, and they're called "silver"!
Ruby: ...I mean, I did until you said that.
Episode 5: Never Miss a Beat
Mercury: What does that mean?
Cinder: It means...that this will be even easier than we thought.
Ozpin: Maidens choose themselves. I simply believe I've found the right candidate. Ever since the day I met her I believed she would be the one. She's strong, intelligent, caring, but most importantly...she's ready.
Episode 6: Fall
Qrow: Personally, I think it's the other way around.
Pyrrha: [Death Glare] ...I'm sorry, but I don't believe we've been introduced.
Goodwitch: You know who we are. We're still the same teachers and headmasters you met when you first arrived at Beacon.
Qrow: 'Cept, we've got a little part time job.
Ironwood: We are the protectors of this world.
Ozpin: And we need your help.
Mercury: There's not going to be a next time, Blondie!
Episode 7: Beginning of the End
Emerald: ...Who are you?
Episode 8: Destiny
Yang: But I wasn't-
Ironwood: That's ENOUGH! The sad truth is, whether it was an accident or an assault...it doesn't matter. The world saw you attack an innocent student. They've already drawn their own conclusions.
Jaune: Uh... I dunno. I guess that depends on how you view it.
Pyrrha: When I think of destiny, I don't think of some predetermined fate that you can't escape. But rather...some sort of final goal. Something you work towards your entire life.
Jaune: Ok... uh yeah, I can see that, sure.
Pyrrha: Well... what would you do if something came along that you never expected? Something that had the potential to stand between you and your destiny.
Jaune: Like... what?
Pyrrha: Or, what if you could fulfill your destiny in an instant, but at the cost of who you were?
Jaune: Pyrrha, you're not making any sense.
Pyrrha: [Suddenly SHOUTING!] None of it makes sense! This isn't how things were supposed to happen!
Episode 9: PvP
Episode 11: Heroes and Monsters
Blake: Why are you doing this?
Adam: You and I were going to change the world, remember? We were destined light to the fires of revolution! [Stomps a helpless student and prepares to kill him] Consider this the spark.
[Blake rushes in and engages Adam in a Blade Lock]
Blake: I'm. Not. Running.
Adam: You. Will. [Kicks Blake to the ground, but kills a Creep attacking her] But not before you suffer for your betrayal, my love.
Ruby: What are you doing!? Without these ships, the Grimm will destroy everything!
Roman: That's the plan!
Ruby: But why!? What do you get out of it!?
Roman: You're asking the wrong questions, Red! It's not what I have to gain, it's that I can't afford to lose! I may be a gambling man, but even I know that there are some bets you just don't take. Like it or not, the people that hired me are going to change the world! You can't stop 'em, I can't stop 'em! You know the old saying: "If you can't beat 'em—"
(Neo gets whisked away)
Ruby: I don't care what you say! We will stop them and I will stop you! BET ON THAT!!
Roman: You got spirit, Red... but this is the real world! The real world, IS COLD! The real world, DOESN'T CARE ABOUT SPIRIT!! You wanna be a hero? Then play the part and die like every other Huntsman in history! As for me, I'll do what I do best: lie, steal, cheat, AND SURVIVE!!!!!—
(Yang runs into view fighting a White Fang member)
Yang: Blake! Blake! Where are you?
(Adam sees Blake's horrified face staring at Yang)
Adam: Starting with her.
Episode 12: End of the Beginning
(Cinder circles around Pyrrha and lifts her chin up)
Cinder: But take comfort in knowing that I will use it in ways you could never have imagined.
(Pyrrha pulls away from her touch)
Pyrrha: Do you believe in destiny?
(Cinder narrows her eyes)
(The background music turns sinister)
Salem: To snuff it out. How does it feel? Knowing that all of your time and effort has been for nothing? That your guardians have failed you? That everything you've built will be torn down before your very eyes? Your faith in humanity was not misplaced... When banded together, united by a common enemy, they are a noticeable threat. But divide them... Place doubt into their minds... And any ''semblance'' of power they had will wash away. Of course, they won't realize it at first. Like you they'll cling to their fleeting hope... Their aspirations... But this is merely the first move. So you send your guardians. Your huntsmen and huntresses. And when they fail and you turn to your smaller soul... know that you send her to the same pitiful demise. This is the beginning of the end, Ozpin. And I can't wait to watch you burn.
Episode 7: Punished
Jacques: And don't think I'm just talking about Lien here! Our reputation! Our... our... [sighs angrily]
Episode 10: Kuroyuri
Jaune: You didn't drag us in. We wanted to come.
Ruby: But you didn't know about Tyrian, about—
Jaune: Ruby. We lost... we lost Pyrrha. You lost her, too. And Penny, and your team, and in a way, your sister. But you're still here, despite everything you've lost, everything you could still lose, you chose to come out here. Because you felt like you could make a difference.
(Jaune places his hand on Ruby's shoulder)
Jaune: You didn't drag us along. You gave us the courage to follow you.
Nora: Easy's no fun anyway.
Episode 11: Taking Control
Sun: You think you're being selfless, but you're not. Yeah, that chameleon friend of yours got me pretty good... but I'd do it all again if it meant protecting you. (beat) I could promise Yang would say the same.
(Sun gets up, with effort)
Sun: You can make your own choices, sure. But you don't get to make ours. When your friends fight for you, it's because we want to. So stop pushing us out. (beat) It hurts more than anything the bad guys could ever do to us.
Episode 12: No Safe Haven
I hope my letters have been reaching you and Dad. Hand-written stuff's never been super reliable, but I guess it's all we've got these days. Anyway, in case you haven't been getting them, I want to say I'm sorry for leaving the way I did. I know you told me it was a reckless idea, and after everything I've been through, I can definitely say you were right. It's been hard on all of us, and I'm not just talking about the monsters we fought out here.
Every step we made we made took us further and further from the things we knew. And every morning we woke up wonder if just over the next hill would be something good, or something terrible. It's scary, not knowing what's going to happen next. And the things we do know now, just how bad it can get, it almost makes it all worse. You told me once that bad things just happen. You were angry when you said it, and I didn't want to listen. But you were right: bad things do happen, all the time, every day. Which is why I'm out here, to do whatever I can, where I can, and hopefully do some good. Weve all lost something, and Ive seen what loss can do to people. But if we gave up every time we lost, then wed never be able to move forward. Wed never have a chance to see what beautiful things the future might have waiting for us. Wed never have the strength to change; whether its ourselves, or the world around us. And wed never be there for other people who might one day be lost without us.
This is what we were training for, Yang: to become Huntresses, to be the ones to stand up and do something about all the bad in the world. Because there are plenty of people out there who are still lost, and even more who will try to gain everything they can from their sorrow. Believe me when I say I know it can feel impossible. Like every single day is a struggle against some unstoppable monster we can never hope to beat. But we have to try. If not for us, then for the people we've already... then for the people we haven't lost yet.
I miss you so much. I miss Weiss and Blake, too. But I think you'd all be proud to know that I made it to Mistral. All of us did, and we even ran into Uncle Qrow along the way! He's going to take us to see Professor Lionheart, the headmaster of Haven Academy. And, he told us some things that you're going to want to hear, things I can't trust will make it to you in this letter. But maybe, if you joined us, he could tell you himself. With Beacon gone, they'll need Dad at Signal more than ever, and I know you need to focus on yourself before I can expect you to come out with me. But it sure would be great to get Team RWBY back together again.
Until next time, your loving sister, Ruby Rose.
P.S. I'll be sure to give you the address of where we'll be staying at Mistral! I'd love to hear back from you and Dad, and I can't wait to fill you in on whatever's going to happen next! Now that we've made it across Anima, I really think things are gonna start going our way.
Sienna Khan: I'm starting to doubt either of you fully comprehend what it is that I want! I want Humanity to fear the Faunus; to know that we demand respect. I do not want to start a war with the humans that we cannot win!
Adam: That's where you're wrong.
(Hazel and Sienna Khan both stare at him with uncertainty. Adam begins walking up to Sienna's throne.)
Adam: We can win a war against the humans, not only because we have the support of Hazel's master, but because the Faunus are the dominant species of this planet. We're better than humans; we have everything humans have and more. Humans shouldn't just fear the Faunus:
(As Adam reaches the top, he leans toward Sienna with a grin on his face).
Adam: they should serve the Faunus!

Episode 14: Haven's Fate
Yang: (glaring) You opened the vault.
Raven: Thanks to the chaos you and your friends caused upstairs. I knew you could handle it. Youre my daughter after all.
Yang: Qrow and Oz told me how the Maiden powers are transferred. The girl you found ... she wouldve had to have trusted you if you were in her final thoughts - cared about you a lot.
Raven: Im sure they told you plenty, and you just sat and obeyed.
Yang: No, Im starting to ask questions like you said. So tell me ... what happened to the last Spring Maiden? Did she die in battle? Was it sickness?
Raven: What does it matter to you?
Yang: (eyes widening) I can already see the answer. Its all over your face. How could you?!
Raven: She was scared when we found her! Weak. No matter how much training I put her through, she never learned! She wasnt cut out for this world! And with those powers, she wouldve been hunted her entire life! What I did -
Yang: (quoting her mother) Wasnt personal.
Raven: It was mercy!
Yang: Which is it, mom? Are you merciful, or are you a survivor? Did you let me walk into that trap because you knew I could handle it, or because it meant you could get what you wanted?!
Raven: Its not that simple. You dont know me, you dont know what Ive been through, the choices Ive had to make!
Yang: Youre right. I dont know you. I only know the Raven dad told me about. She was troubled, and complicated, but she fought for what she believed in, whether it was her team or her tribe! Did you kill her too?
Raven eyes widen and looks away, before turning back to face her daughter again.
Raven: Ive stared death in the face over and over again! (in her anger, her Maiden powers activate) And every time Ive spat in that face and survived, because Im strong enough to do what others wont!!
Yang: Oh, shut up!! You dont know the first thing about strength! You turn your back on people, you run away when things get too hard, you put others in harms way instead of yourself!! (she balls her hand into a fist, shaking) You might be powerful, but that doesnt make you strong.
Raven: (enraged) Who do you think you are lecturing me?! Standing there, shaking like a scared little girl?!
Yang: Yeah, Im scared. But Im still standing here! (begins approaching Raven) Im not like you, I wont run. Which is why youre going to give me the Relic.
Raven: And why would I—
Yang: Because youre afraid of Salem!!! And if you thought having Maiden powers put a target on your back, imagine what shell do when she finds out you have a Relic. (Raven turns away, seething) Shell come after you with everything she has. (Ravens expression then turns solemn) Or she can come after me. (Ravens eyes widen when she hears her daughter say that, before turning back to her.) And Ill be standing there, waiting for her.
After a tense moment, Raven deactivates her Maiden powers.
Raven: You dont want to do this, Yang.
Yang: Nope. But Im gonna do it anyway.

Ruby: No! We're going to Atlas! Bigger people than you have tried and failed. But we're supposed to be on the same side! We're supposed to use our power to protect people!

Cordovin: ...I've heard enough.

Episode 13: The Enemy Of Trust
White is cold and always yearning, burdened by a royal test.
Black the beast descends from shadows.
Yellow beauty burns gold...
Treated like a worthless animal,
Stripped of all rights,
Just a lesser being,
Crushed by cruel ruthless Human rule.
And our friends turn and leave us behind.
Creatures of darkness will triumph;
The sun won't rise.
When we've lost all hope,
And succumb to fear,
And the skies rain blood,
And the end draws near,
I may fall,
But not like this: it won't be by your hand.
your world's in the way of harm.
You want a romantic life,
a fairy tale that's full of charm.
Beware that the light is fading.
Beware as the dark returns.
This world's unforgiving,
Even brilliant lights will cease to burn.
Or are we weapons
Pointed at the enemy
So someone else can claim a victory...
were not worth the price they paid?
Even with the lives you stole,
still no closer to your...
you placed your faith in fools and now you'll smother in lament.
They play the part of allies claiming peace their only goal,
but once the fight for power starts they'll eat each other whole.
Their iron gloves point fingers, they'll wage a war of blame.
And mankind will wilt. In. Pain.
There'll be no love,
There'll be no hero in the end
who will rise above.
And when it ends
The good will crawl,
The shining light will sink in darkness
Victory for hate incarnate
Misery and pain for all
When it falls...
Make your plans, and plot your schemes.
Send your fighters, one and all.
Then in battle,
worth living for
Everything is broken
The light's not there any more
And the story
takes an unexpected turn
A friend is suddenly gone
We can cry our lives away
But if they were here they'd say
Go forward you must keep moving on
I'm an albatross
I'm a mirror broken
Sad to say, I'm your bad luck charm
not another thing you own.
I was not born guilty of your crimes.
Your riches and your influence
can't hold me any more.
I won't be possessed,
burdened by your royal test!
I will not surrender!
This life is mine!
Feel like I'm back from the dead!
My strength back and confidence growing.
Out of my way, cause I'm
It's only for a while
Take what you need
Leave them to bleed
Let them know bitter
While your revenge is sweet
Can't bring back what is gone
Won't waste more tears on yesteryears
Instead we'll carry on!
We'll win for sure
We will endure
And though our goal is far
We'll be the ones to touch the sun!
The triumph will be ours!
It's not destiny!
It would be a great mistake to think so
Every choice is ours and ours alone!
This hasn't all been mapped by fate
This is the future we create
And we're powered by
Every tear that's dried!
Here's where you'll die!
Legends should scatter
so just say goodbye!
No one will miss you
when you're finally gone!
At your conclusion
sing your swan song!
Murder, unkindness, conspiracy!
Embers extinguished in effigy!
Just close your eyes
Don't fear demise
Black out the sky!
All things must die!
To you it's no big deal
It's sad but it's true
That the one thing I can count on
Is that I can't count on you
The ways of the past we'll get over.
Enlightened, a new state of mind.
I'll stand with you shoulder-to-shoulder.
Out the ashes, a new flame ignite!
Rise up from shadows, and into the light!
We'll stand undivided, our futures aligned.
A new brotherhood
Too weak to take the prize.
Replace them with a warrior;
Its time we mobilize!
Depose the feeble cowards,
Heed this battle cry!
Vengeance on the human filth
The time is now well rise!
Im your savior,
Ill be lionized
But we both know it's not so
But if you cross my battle line
You'll find you'll be sorry that you tried
If it's war that you want then you got it
If it's pain well I brought what you need
If it is true what you say: you're the best, then let's play!
