Nnoitora: Why did you stop your sword?
Neliel: Why did you stop yours?
Nnoitora: You idiot, it's obvious I stopped my sword because I saw you stop your sword! You're annoying. You're so annoying, when I'm fighting you, I think back. Except for those ridiculous ragtag clothes you're wearing, you haven't changed one single bit.
Teacher: All right, Tokine, would you please read the next part of our lesson? Tokine?
Tokine: Huh? Yes. I'm sorry, I wasn't listening.
Teacher: Oh no! If Tokine has lost interest in my lesson plan, it can only mean that I'm...a failure as a teacher!
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood #34:
Miles: I did resent the military's actions. And I also had doubts as to why General Armstrong would keep me as her staff officer. The presence of someone with Ishvalan blood could cause discord among the soldiers stationed here. It would have been easier for her to get rid of me. Eventually, I just came right out and asked her.
Olivier: This is Briggs. No matter what happens, this territory must not fall. Every soldier here must be both strong and flexible. You must move as one cohesive unit, following me, your leader, in all things at all times. In short, we do not have the luxury of discrimination here. The blood of several races flows within you, and with that comes various strengths and values. You can see this country in a way that others cannot. I was born and raised in Amestris. In order to lead, I need someone with your eyes. Now shut up and follow me, Miles! Understood?
Miles: Her words made sense. I knew she was speaking without deception. I even went so far as to ask her, "What if the Ishvalan blood within me cannot forgive what the military did to my people?" And do you want to know what the General said to that?
Olivier: Fine then, bring it! On behalf of the military, I'll accept your challenge anytime!
Miles: That was it.
Edward: What a scary lady! Maybe she said that because she had her troops with her.
: No, that wasn't it at all.
Armstrong: I'LL FIGHT YOU ONE ON ONE!
Miles: The look in her eye!
