" I'm just saying, if that x28 rifle doesn't make the grade, I'll shit, because it shoots like a dream."
"A little twitchy on the recoil."
"Says you, Captain Yuy. I think your war injuries are making it twitchy. That shoulder still bothers you when the weather goes bad."
"Your opinion, Captain Maxwell. Old war wounds don't affect my shooting. Now yours make you slow when it comes to climbing. That last mission Commander Une's grandmother could have made it up that cliff face faster than you."
"Commander Une's grandmother is an ex Alliance special ops soldier who still exercises three hours every day. I don't think that's a fair comparison. Besides, you break five ribs and see how fast you climb."
"I have and I did climb faster than you."
"Still not fair."
"When you explain?"
"Look. All my broken ribs are in the upper quadrant, right where my muscles need to stretch. See the knots?"
"And you can see that mine are all under my left arm. Do you think I made the climb one handed?"
"What about that cut below my shoulder blade? See that, Yuy? Right into the meat and muscle and healed wrong. The Oz asshole had a ten inch blade on him."
"What about that broken leg of mine? And the cut into my hip. See that, Maxwell?"
"Not really. Why don't you pull your pants down a little further?"
"Ha! Pervert. There. See that? You try and climb with that messing up your leg muscle."
"I've got two just like that? See?"
"I see your white ass."
"Enjoy the view."
"I will, as long as you look at that."
"Oh, God! Not the bullet hole? Are you going to bring THAT up again?"
"There are two of them and you caused them both."
"We finished the obstacle course. Sorry it took us so long to catch up to you. Uh... er... are we all supposed to undress now?"
"No! We were just... Uhm... Captain Maxwell?"
"Just making sure that we didn't get any sand fleas. Corporal Patterson made a report on them earlier. We found a few... right Captain Yuy?"
"Right, Captain Maxwell. Everyone should hit the showers to make certain none of you have them."
"Yeah, showers. Everyone. Dismissed."
"I made sure that I didn't shoot anything important, Yuy, and you know it. Now this one on my shoulder, that I got saving Quatre from a freight train..."
