Final Fantasy IX (2000 Video Game)
[Zidane telling Garnet the story of Ipsen and Colin]
Zidane: Ipsen and his good friend Colin worked at a tavern in Treno. One day, Ipsen got a letter. The letter was so wet from rain that most of the writing was illegible. The only part he could read said "Come back home." Nowadays, we have airships and stuff, but back then, it was really hard to travel. He didn't know why he had to go back, but he got some time off, gathered his things, and set out on his journey home. He walked a thousand leagues through the Mist. Sometimes he was attacked by vicious monsters, but he made it, because his friend Colin was by his side. And then, after much time on the road... He had to ask Colin something: "Why did you come with me?"
Garnet: And? What was Colin's answer?
Zidane: "Only because I wanted to go with you."
Marcus: No cloud or squall can hinder us!
Zidane: [referring to the Buster Sword] I once knew a spiky-headed guy who had a sword like this.
Eiko: Stop laughing, you poop!
Zidane: I remember someone with pointy hair who had a sword like that.
Garnet: How did you survive?
Zidane: I didn't have a choice. I had to live. So I sang your song.
Garnet: Our song.
Quina: World very simple place. World only have two things: Things you can eat and things you no can eat.
Zidane: [after touching Garnet's butt by accident] Oooh... Soft!
Kuja: Time to die, everyone!
Freya: To be forgotten, is worse than death!
Garnet: Someday I will be queen! But I will always be myself!
ViVi: How do you prove you exist? Maybe we don't exist.
Ruby: Zidane! I reckon you're more stubborn than a grumpy mule!
Zidane: Sure is dark... Guess nobody's here yet...
Zidane: [attempting to rescue Kuja] Hey! Are you alright?
Kuja: Zidane...? What are you doing here? I thought I told you to go...
Zidane: Wouldn't you do the same for me if you knew I was dying?
Zidane: ...Never mind.
Kuja: Your comrades were able to escape?
Zidane: Yeah... I knew you had something to do with it.
Kuja: ...I'm glad they made it.
Zidane: Yeah, well... it's our turn to get movin'.
Kuja: ...I don't deserve to live after all that I've done. I'm useless to this world.
Zidane: No one's useless... You helped us escape, remember?
Kuja: ...After you guys beat me, I had nothing left... nothing more to lose. Then, I finally realized what it means to live... I guess I was too late.
Zidane: ? Hey! Don't you go dying on me, alright? ?
Queen Brahne: I... I... can hear... my daughter's voice.
Garnet: Yes, Mother! I'm here! Right here...
Queen Brahne: I... I am empty now... Free... Free... of that... terrible... greed.
Queen Brahne: I haven't... felt this way... since I saw that play... with you... and your father. I led... Alexandria... down... the path... of ruin... The people... will be... happier... with you... on the throne...
Kuja: What an auspicious day for Alexandria. Garnet's ascension to the throne has brought hope and peace to this kingdom. The people are overjoyed; they believe a wonderful future is ahead of them... But the celebration isn't over yet. It's time to really light things up! Your former master is here, Bahamut. Play a requiem for her and all of Alexandria!
Mikoto: Heaven grant the wandering souls eternal repose...
Zidane: Could she have betrayed me? Nay, ne'er would my love speak false. I must have faith. She shall appear if I only believe! As the sun lends me no ear, I pray instead to the twin moons! I beseech thee, wondrous moonlight, grant me my only wish! Bring my beloved Dagger to me!
Cinna: [after meeting at South Gate] Who's the big tin man?
Steiner: WHAT? How dare you!
Marcus: He's the captain of the Knights of Pluto.
Cinna: Oh yeah! You're one bad actor.
Baku: So, this Tootsie's gonna give us Supersoft?
Marcus: It's Tot.
Baku: ACHOO! Whatever. I can't believe Tantalus is at the mercy of some old man. Hmph. I guess we gotta keep babysittin' the princess.
Baku: He ain't gonna give you the Supersoft unless you're with the princess. That's the deal, Princess. I'm askin' you to take Marcus to this Toot.
Marcus: ...It's Tot.
Garnet: I was going to, anyway.
Baku: Well, go get some rest before you go. I'm sure Ted needs time to prepare.
Marcus: ...It's Tot.
Zidane: [the survivors of the Cleyran siege are caught in a pincer by Black Mages] We can't save them all!
Sir Fratley: [the Black Mages get ready to kill, when Sir Fratley lands on the roof of the catherdral with his halberd] Minions of evil, you have gone too far! My spear will purge this land of you!
[Sir Fratley leaps from the roof, slashing the first black mage, then the second, then the third]
Zidane: Listen, Vivi. You gotta do something next time. You should try - screaming back or whatever. Like... "Get off me, you scumbag!"
Zidane: Go on, Vivi. Don't worry about me. Someday, you'll probably do the same thing for someone who's really important to you. Garnet is more important to me than anything else.
Garland: [to Zidane] Yes, my angel of death. But only until you came of age.
Garland: Regrettable. I thought your soul would be perfect for a new angel of death.
Zidane: I AM the new angel of death! Yours!
Lani: I've been looking for you, Princess Garnet.
Zidane: Have we met?
Garnet: Quit flirting with her!
Zidane: Yes Ma'am!
Zidane: [about Quina] Geez... All s/he ever thinks about is food.
Garnet: Well, all you ever think about is girls.
Zidane: Uh, that's right! My mind is filled with thoughts of... you!
[turns around and sees ViVi instead]
Zidane: ...Maybe I'm trying too hard...
Zidane: [to Garnet] I don't know... But you know what surprised him even more? The father smiled, after beating up his son! Can you believe that? He just gave his son a beating. But this is what the man thought when he saw his father smile. "This is my home. This is the place I call home." The man is still looking for his birthplace. But he already has a home. Maybe... it's the same for Vivi. He's looking for a place to call home.
[Garnet has agreed to go through a Conde Petie matrimonial ceremony with Zidane]
Zidane: Now hold on a sec Dagger! Don't you get it? This is marriage! M-a-r-r-i-a-g-e!
[Zidane and Garnet are going through the Conde Petie matrimonial ceremony]
Zidane: [In his thoughts] Gotta admit, I was pretty deep that night at Black Mage Village. Maybe that's when she fell for me? I'm such a stud!
Zidane: Dagger! Now we're man and wife! Time for a kiss!
[Garnet backs away as Zidane jumps and falls head first into the ground while Garnet walks away]
Garnet: Is this... a garnet?
Zidane: That's right. Isn't it pretty?
Garnet: It's beautiful...
Zidane: That gen used to be just another stone. The stone made a wish. "I want to shine!" That stone traveled from person to person, keeping its wish. And now, it's shining in your hand Dagger. If you're willing to make an effort, you'll shine too someday! The day will come when Alexandria needs you! There's no rush. The important thing is to have desire.
Garnet: Zidane? Can I borrow that knife again?
Zidane: Which one?
Garnet: The one that helped me make my last big decision...
[Takes Zidane's dagger and trows it once in style]
Garnet: I'm borrowing this!
[She runs off]
Garnet: Zidane... remember the way I was... for me.
[Zidane is fighting a Shell Dragon and his HP is at 1. A Curaga spell is casted on him off-screen and Garnet joins him]
Garnet: Is this how you want to solve the problem?
Garnet: No... I can't... I can't let anything happen to my mother.
Garnet: Zidane, I... I have to save her!
Zidane: Uhh, Dagger? She extracted eidolons from you and started a war!
Garnet: I still don't want her to die!
Zidane: But she didn't care one bit whether you lived or died! You don't have to call her "Mother" anymore!
Garnet: She's my only mother! I don't care if you don't understand!
Eiko: Well, now that the men are gone, we can do all the girl talk we want!
Garnet: ...Girl talk?
Eiko: Oh, I completely forgot! And we're all alone, too!
Garnet: Wh-What is it?
Eiko: There's a question I need to ask you! I've been waiting for a chance to ask you for the longest time! Give me an honest answer, okay?
Garnet: Well, you have to ask the question before I can answer.
Eiko: Do you love... Zidane?
Garnet: Wh-What? Why?
Eiko: You have to answer me! Do you love him or not?
[There's a sound]
Eiko: Hey, it's the airship! Zidane's back!
Eiko: Did you just say something, Dagger?
Garnet: Let's go, Eiko!
Eiko: H-Hey, wait! That's not fair!
[In the Teleporter]
Zidane: U-Um... Dagger?
Zidane: Um... About what happened earlier...
Garnet: What is it, Zidane?
Zidane: Oh, geez. I feel like I'm being watched.
Garnet: Just say it! We need to hurry.
Zidane: Um... You came to my rescue, right? And... Uh... What you said to me... It made me really happy...
Zidane: How can I say this? Um...
[They teleport out. The screen turns completely black]
[the Red Rose is helping the Invincible fight off White Dragons]
Blutzen, Pluto Knight II: ...We all know you came along because you were worried sick about Captain Steiner...
Beatrix: Did you say something?
[the Invincible crew watches the appearance of the Red Rose]
Steiner: Red Rose? Could it be... Beatrix?
Zidane: Quite a woman you fell in love with!
Steiner: You're one to talk!
Garnet: Wait a minute, Steiner! What did you mean by that?
Zidane: ...Alright! Let's bust through!
