"So? Your point being?"
"Maybe you don't think that my feelings can be hurt, or that I can't be embarrassed, but you're wrong."

"What's that look?"
"I know alllll about embarrassment, Heero."
"Do I get an explanation? What did I do that deserves having everyone wondering about my ablity to give a good b-"

"Hickey... on my neck... where everyone has been staring at it all day long, Heero. People like Commander Une, Milliardo, Relena, the joint Southern command... Do you get it now?"
"I'm sorry, Duo. It won't happen again."
"It will, but you gotta keep it where no one can see it, okay?"
"You're smiling. You're supposed to be punished severely and sorry."
"You're not very good at faking it."
"I'm just thinking about next time. Can we leave work early?"
