Woman on Intercom C (right):“All protein walls are in good condition. No problems in any area.”
Cody MacArthur Fett: That was the most (positive) emotion we'll see out of Rei for the entirety of the series, savor it folks.
thewayneiac: I'm glad you added "positive" there. I've got some ammo saved up for later. There's a comment by Quiddity in a couple of scenes where I can use it.
Azathoth: It's interesting that this is about the only time we see Rei and Gendou interacting so casually - they're certainly on better terms with each other than anyone else is, but not a lot of screentime gets devoted to it. Probably because...well, what are they talking about. "So, have I told you how much you look like my dead wife lately?" "Oh, you, Commander! *giggle*"
Kendrix: That smile is reserved for quiet, troubled men with pretty blue eyes who saved Rei's life and who Rei would give her own life for. Yes, he uses her for experiment-y things/his plans, but he still cares about her as a person/sort-of-daughter.
