Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion


The Day a New Demon was Born

Kallen Kōzuki: [in her Glasgow Knightmare Frame] You fellas know full well what this badass mother can do!

Lloyd Asplund: A-ha!
Bartley Asprius: What are you doing?
Lloyd: Looking at a man who blundered, am I right?
Bartley: [riled] Why, you—!
Lloyd: You really screwed this one up. Terrorists came along and stole whatever it was that you and Prince Clovis were secretly working on. Retrieving it is simple, but you want to sweep up all their compatriots in addition. Let the terrorists go, and you can find their hideout, too. [turns to his assistant, Cécile Croomy] Congratulations! Your reasoning was spot-on!
Cécile Croomy: It was nothing. I just thought it was strange.

[C.C. enters Lelouch's mind and proposes the contract of Geass.]
C.C.: You don't want it to end here, do you?
Lelouch Lamperouge: What?
C.C.: You appear to have a reason for living.
Lelouch: The girl? That's impossible.
C.C.: If I grant you power, could you go on? I propose a deal — in exchange for this power, you must agree to make my one wish come true. Accept this contract, and you accept its conditions. While living in the world of humans, you will live unlike any other: a different providence, a different time, a different life. The Power of the King will condemn you to a life of solitude. Are you prepared for this?
Lelouch: Yes! I hereby accept the terms of your contract!

[Lelouch has just been granted Geass by C.C. and is planning to use it on the Britannian royal guards who have him cornered.]
Lelouch: Say... how should a Britannian who detests his own country live his life?
Britannian Royal Guard Commander: Are you some kind of radical? Huh?
Lelouch: What's wrong? Why not shoot? Your opponent is just a schoolboy. Or have you finally realized…the only ones who should kill are those who are prepared to be killed!
[Lelouch uncovers his left eye and activates his Geass for the first time.]
Britannian Royal Guard Commander: [suddenly fearful] What's happening here?!
Lelouch: I, Lelouch vi Britannia, command you! Now, all of you... Die!
[Lelouch casts the Geass, which manifests as a glowing red bird-like figure that soars at the royal guards. The guards' eyes glow a dull red as they are affected.]
Britannian Royal Guard Commander: [laughs madly as he and his men are overcome by the Geass] Happily, Your Highness!
[The royal guards all put their pistols to their necks.]
Britannian Royal Guard Commander: Fire!
[All royal guards present pull their triggers, shooting themselves through their collective jugulars; Lelouch gasps in shock at the fact that he has indeed made them commit suicide.]
Lelouch (voice-over): That was the turning point. Since that day, I've lived a lie: The lie of living. My name, too, was a lie. My personal history, a lie. Nothing but lies. I was sick to death of a world that couldn't be changed. But even in my lies, I refused to give up in despair. But now, this incredible power… it's mine.
[After a moment of staring at the corpses as if in horror, Lelouch suddenly grins in an almost evil manner.]
Lelouch: Well, then…

The White Knight Awakens

[Lelouch is musing on why C.C. granted him Geass when a Sutherland Knightmare Frame piloted by Viletta Nu barges in]
Villetta Nu: [checks her Sutherland's visual sensors, gasps] How could all these royal guards be dead? [activates her Sutherland's loudspeakers and addresses Lelouch] What happened here, boy?! And why is a Britannian student in a place like this?! Are you deaf?! Answer me, or I'll-- [fires her Sutherland's machine gun around Lelouch] Answer me!
Lelouch: I order you to come out, at once! [activates Geass]
Viletta: [is unaffected by Lelouch's Geass] Who the hell do you think you are to order me?!
Lelouch: [deactivates Geass and thinks] I see. It only works with direct eye contact. [aloud, as he turns to face the Sutherland with his hands up] My name is Alan Spacer. My father's a duke.
Viletta: Nobility?
Lelouch: My ID card's in my breast pocket. After you confirm who I am, I'll request your protection.
Viletta: [deactivates her Knightmare and disembarks, pistol in hand and pointed towards Lelouch] Keep your hands up in the air! I'll take out your ID.
Lelouch: [activates Geass] Now then, hand your Knightmare over to me.
[Viletta is overcome by Geass and points her pistol away from Lelouch]
Viletta: Understood. The code number is XG21G2D4.
[Viletta throws her Sutherland's key at Lelouch, who catches it]
Lelouch: Got it. [deactivates Geass and claims Viletta's Sutherland for his own]

Lloyd Asplund: So, are we having a bad day?! Looks like you missed a chance to go to heaven, Private Kururugi.

Lloyd Asplund: Good afternoon!
Military Commanders: What is it?! We're in the middle of an operation!

[Lelouch has just forced Clovis to order the Britannian forces to cease fighting in the Shinjuku ghetto]
Clovis la Britannia: Are you satisfied?
Lelouch Lamperouge: Very. Well done.
Clovis: And what shall we do now? Sing a few lively ballads, or perhaps a nice game of chess?
Lelouch: That has a familiar ring.
Clovis: Hmm?
Lelouch: [removes his helmet and casts it aside] Don't you recall? The two of us used to play chess together as boys. Of course, I would always win.
Clovis: What?
Lelouch: Remember? At the Aries Villa?
Clovis: You! Who are you?
Lelouch: [walks out of the shadows, revealing his face to Clovis] It's been a long time, big brother. [Clovis gasps] The eldest son of the late consort Marianne and 17th in line to the imperial throne, Lelouch vi Britannia, at your service.
Clovis: Lelouch! B-But I thought--
Lelouch: That I was dead? You were wrong. [sustained pause] I have returned, Your Highness, and I've come back to change everything.

Lelouch: The trick of real combat is that everyone is human.

The False Classmate

Jeremiah Gottwald: (on PA system) Why the hell we're letting the Elevens go? What about the poison gas they've stolen?
Royal Guard: But it's by order of Prince Clovis.
Jeremiah: What about Bartley? Get the general's staff on the line.
Royal Guard: They're not at their post, sir.
Jeremiah: Are you telling me Prince Clovis is alone on the con?

(Lelouch confronts Clovis at gunpoint)

Clovis: I'm overjoyed, Lelouch! They say you died once Japan was brought into the fold. What a blessing to have you back, we should depart for the homeland immediately.
Lelouch: So you can use me as a tool of diplomacy? It seems you forgotten why we were used as tools in the first place.

(Clovis gasps)

Lelouch: That's right. It was because my mother was killed.

(In the flashback where Empress Marianne was assassinated)

Lelouch: Mother held the title of Knight of Honor, but was a commoner by birth. No doubt the other imperial consorts held her in contempt. Even though you made it look like the work of terrorists, I'm no fool! You people killed my mother!
Clovis: It wasn't me! I swear to you, it wasn't!
Lelouch: Then tell me everything you know. The truth cannot be hidden from me any longer. By whose hands was she slain?

(Lelouch use his Geass to make Clovis tell the truth)

Clovis: My brother, Second Prince Schneizel, and Second Princess Cornelia. They can tell you.
Lelouch: They were at the heart of this? That's all that you know, isn't it?

(Lelouch releases Clovis from his Geass)

Clovis: (scarily) I swear, it wasn't me! I have... nothing to do with it!
Lelouch: (puts down his gun) I believe you. However...

(Lelouch puts his gun close to Clovis' face)

Clovis: Please, you can't! We may have different mothers, but you and I are still blood!
Lelouch: You can't change the world without getting your hands dirty.

(Lelouch pulls the trigger and kills Clovis)

His Name is Zero

Jeremiah: [as a fake version of Prince Clovis' car approaches the military convoy escorting Suzaku] You dare desecrate His Highness's transport? Come out of there!
[The upper part of transport burns away, revealing Zero. Jeremiah and the crowd gasp.]
Zero: I am… Zero.
Villetta: Zero?
Reporter: Who—? Who is this person, this man calling himself Zero, standing before a full military convoy?
Rivalz: [worried] What is all this?
Shinichirō Tamaki: What the hell does he think he's doing?!
Reporter: Who is this man calling himself "Zero"? Ladies and gentlemen, the scene down here...
Diethard Ried: Zero? What, you mean like, "nothing"?
Reporter: Are we gazing on a terrorist? Certainly not the wisest, if such is the case.
Suzaku Kururugi: [thinking] Is he… an Eleven?
Zero: [thinking] Now to return the favor, Suzaku.
Jeremiah: I've seen enough, Zero. This little show of yours is over.
[Jeremiah shoots his gun, signaling more Sutherlands from above, which land and surround the car. Kallen gasps, but Zero doesn't even flinch, his cape fluttering dramatically.]
Jeremiah: First things first: why don't you lose that mask?
[Zero's right hand hovers over his face... then he feints, raising his arm up and snapping his fingers. On cue, the transport's rear breaks away, revealing the capsule from the first episode.]
Jeremiah: [shocked] What in the—?!
Villetta: Jeremiah, be careful, he's got the—!
Zero: [thinking] Yes, Jeremiah. [recalls when the capsule first opened, revealing C.C.] You never saw inside this thing, so you assume it holds poison gas.
Suzaku: Wait, you don't understand—! [electric collar activated] Kuh!
Reporter: Can all of you watching at home see this? It's some sort of device, although its purpose is unclear. Stay with us, and we'll see if this so-called terrorist has anything to say.
Jeremiah: You bastard…! [to himself] He's taken every Britannian here hostage… and he's done it without them even knowing! [points his gun at Zero]
Zero: You intend to shoot? I think you know full well what…
Diethard: Unit 6, bring up the sound and get that camera right in his face.
Cameraman: Sir, it's too hairy out here.
Diethard: [growling] Amateurs. [grabs another news camera and heads out to the scene]
Jeremiah: Fine. What are you demands?
Zero: An exchange: this for Kururugi.
Jeremiah: Like hell. He's charged with high treason for murdering a prince. I can't hand him over.
Zero: No. You're mistaken, Jeremiah. He's no murderer.
[Diethard runs out onto the street, zooming in on Zero with his camera]
Zero: The man who killed Clovis… [looks directly at Diethard's camera] …was myself!
[The crowd gasps.]
Cécile: Unbelievable.
Lloyd Asplund: [interested] The real culprit, eh?
Reporter: What—? What does this mean? This masked man called Zero — no, we can't be sure who he is — but in any case, he claims to be the real assassin! So where does this leave the current suspect, Private Kururugi?
Kaname Ohgi: Ugh, crap, there's no way out of this…!
Kallen: [trembling in fear, whispering] We are so screwed…
Zero: For a single Eleven, you'll save scores of precious Britannians. I find that to be a bargain.
[Diethard is shown to be immensely captivated, a massive grin on his face.]
Diethard: [thinking] This is all one big performance to him!
Jeremiah: He's mad, I tell you! Disguising this truck as His Highness's — he'll pay the price for mocking the crown!
[The Sutherlands aim at Zero.]
Zero: Careful! You don't wish the public to learn of "Orange", do you?
Jeremiah: Huh?
Britannian soldier 1: [confused] "Orange"? What's he talking about?
Britannian soldier 2: [just as lost] I don't know.
[Zero taps his right foot twice, signaling Kallen to slowly drive forward, toward Jeremiah.]
Zero: If I die, it will all go public. If you don't want that to happen…
Jeremiah: What are you talking about? What is this?!
[A small part of Zero's mask slides open, revealing his left eye.]
Zero: [activating his Geass] You'll do everything in your power to let us go. Your prisoner as well!
[The Geass is successful.]
Jeremiah: Right, understood. [to the guards] You there, release the prisoner!
[Kallen gasps.]
Villetta: [shocked] What on earth are you doing, my lord?!
Jeremiah: [ignoring her] Get that man over here!
Villetta: Huh…?
Britannian soldier 1: Should we?
Britannian soldier 2: But…
Jeremiah: Hand him over! Nobody gets in his way.
Kewell Soresi: No! What are you thinking? You can't do this!
Jeremiah: Lord Kewell! This is an order!
Reporter: It's hard to tell what's happening from here… but it seems that Kururugi's release has been brokered!
[Zero and Suzaku both reach the street and approach each other.]
Suzaku: So who the hell are you—? [electric collar shocks him again] Guh!
Zero: As I thought. They didn't allow you to speak.
Villetta: [re-entering her Knightmare] If they get away, we'll lose everything!
Kallen: [walking up to Zero] It's time to go, Zero.
Zero: Well then… 'til next time. [Zero pulls out a remote and presses the top button. The capsule releases colored smoke, sending Britannians scrambling for cover.]
Villetta: [aiming at Zero's group] You cowardly Eleven! [shoots, but is stopped by Jeremiah] Lord Jeremiah, what're you—?!
Jeremiah: You heard me! Stand down! NOW!
[Zero, Kallen, and Suzaku jump off the bridge, escaping from the scene.]
Kewell: They're not alone at all! They jumped right off!
[The three land right into a net sprung by Ohgi's Knightmare, landing safely into a truck.]
Ohgi: [unable to believe their luck] It worked! Now we can— [Kewell's Sutherland fires] —ugh!
[Kewell damages Ohgi's unit, forcing the latter to eject.]
Kewell: You imbecile! There's nowhere for you to run—!
Jeremiah: Lord Kewell! [Soresi turns to see Jeremaih aiming his Sutherland rifle at him] Are you going to follow orders or not? And believe me, there will be repercussions! All units, do I make myself clear? Do everything in your power to help them get away!

The Princess and the Witch

[Suzaku has just been cleared of his charges of killing Prince Clovis.]
Suzaku: What happened? I'm free...
???: Out of the way, please!
[Suzaku looks up to see a beautiful girl his age, pink hair and lavender eyes, falling from a nearby window!]
Girl: Look out below!
[Suzaku reaches out and catches the girl in his arms!]
Girl: Oh!
Suzaku (disarmed and surprised): Uh... are you alright?
Girl: I'm sorry, I wasn't aware you were down here until I had leaped!
Suzaku: Well... don't worry! I-I wasn't expecting a girl to come falling out of the sky and into my arms, either.
Girl: Oh, my…
Suzaku: Huh? Is there something wrong?
[The girl looks down, as if thinking, then looks back to Suzaku.]
Girl: Yes! There is something wrong!
Suzaku: Huh?
Girl: The truth is, bad guys are chasing me, so considering the circumstances, could you help me, please?

[Suzaku is now walking with the pink-haired girl he caught falling earlier.]
Girl: We haven't introduced ourselves yet, have we? My name is... (She looks to the side as if thinking.) ..."Euphie"!
Suzaku: "Euphie"?
Euphie: Yes!
Suzaku: My name's--
Euphie: Don't tell me!
Suzaku: Huh?
Euphie: 'Cause I already know it. You're a celebrity! Son of Prime Minister Genbu Kururugi, Private Suzaku Kururugi!
[Suzaku looks away from Euphie.]
Suzaku: Hmph. You lied before. There's no one chasing you at all, right?
Euphie: Meow!
Suzaku: What...?
[Euphie is kneeling next to a black cat.]
Euphie: Meow, meow! Aww, does the kitty's paw hurt? (The cat hisses at her.) Oh…! Meow, meow meow!
Cat: Meow?
[Euphie reaches her hand out to the cat; it sniffs her hand, then rubs its head against her hand.]
Cat: Meow!
Euphie: Meow, meow.
[As Suzaku approaches, Euphie picks up the cat. Giggling, she shows it to Suzaku. Suzaku smiles and reaches out to pet the mewling cat, but it bites his finger.]
Suzaku: Ah…
Euphie: Oh, my!

[Jeremiah Gottwald's Sutherland has been cornerned by Kewell Soresi and three other Loyalist pilots in their own Sutherlands]
Jeremiah: Damn! It's four against one! Coward!
Kewell: Don't worry, Jeremiah. We'll say you died in battle. Your family's name won't be disgraced.
Jeremiah: You're serious, then?! You actually intend to kill me?! Kewell!
Kewell: Silence, Orange! We serve the Imperial Family! Why else would we be here?!
[Kewell and the other Loyalists all charge towards Jeremiah with their lances]
Kewell and the Loyalist pilots: [in unison] ALL…HAIL…BRITANNIA!!!

(Euphie has stepped out to stop the fighting.)

Euphie: Everyone lower your weapons at once! In my name, I command you!
Kewell: It can't be!
Euphie: I am Euphemia li Britannia of the Empire, and the Third Princess of the Royal Family!
Suzaku: (gasps) Euphie!
Euphemia li Britannia: I'm assuming command here, now fall back!
Jeremiah: It is her, it's the princess.
Cécile: Didn't you know it was her, Lloyd?
Lloyd: Uh-huh, but she's been a student up until now, and doesn't need a public debut yet.
Kewell: We... We're truly...! We're truly sorry, Your Highness!

(Kewell and the Purebloods bow to Princess Euphemia.)

Suzaku: Milady! I had no idea who you were. Please forgive me, Princess!
Euphemia: Suzaku, you and I bear similar deep pain. You have lost your father as I have lost my brother.

(Suzaku gasps.)

Euphemia: Will you let me help you in your quest ensure that no one ever again has to suffer the lost of a loved one on the battlefield?

(Suzaku bows to the Third Princess.)

Suzaku: Yes, I'm... I'm not worthy of your kindness!

(A conversation is being held between Euphemia and her older sister, Second Princess Cornelia.)

Cornelia li Britannia: I heard what you did, Euphemia, you shouldn't be so reckless.
Euphemia: I know Sister, forgive me but-
Cornelia: You will address me as Viceroy here, Sub-Viceroy Euphemia. Because we're sisters, we need to follow a stricter protocol.
Euphemia: Yes, I understand.
Cornelia: Hmm. (turns to the vice minister) Now, then. Give me your report.
Vice Minister: Yes, milady. The first order of business is a welcome party we arranged for Your Highness-

(Cornelia points her gun at the vice minister.)

Cornelia: Sloppy... senile... corrupt. Where is Zero?! I want the enemy of the Empire caught! Get Zero!

The Stolen Mask

C.C.: That wasn't my fault, was it? I didn't touch or rub anything.

Emperor Charles zi Britannia: "All men are not created equal. Some are born swifter afoot, some with greater beauty. Some are born into poverty; and others are born sick and feeble. Both in birth and in upbringing, in sheer scope of ability, every human is inherently different! Yes, that is why people discriminate against one another, which is why there is struggle, competition, and the unfaltering march of progress! Inequality is not wrong, equality is! What of the EU who made equality a right? Rabble politics by a popularity contest. The Chinese Federation with its equal distribution of wealth? A nation of lazy dullards. But not our beloved Britannia. We fight, we compete; evolution is continuous! Britannia alone moves forward; advancing steadily into the future. Even the death of my son Clovis demonstrates Britannia’s unswerving commitment to progress! We will fight on, we shall struggle, compete, plunder, and dominate and in the end the future shall be ours! All Hail Britannia!"

Attack Cornelia

Shirley Fenette: I know Kallen said I had it all wrong, but it seemed like she was getting upset in order to fool me.
Suzaku: [holding a telephone] Which is why, in this case, it's best to simply ask him directly. On your behalf, I can ask him how he feels about you.
Shirley: What?! You'd really do that?!
Suzaku: Just relax. It'll be fine.
Shirley: [charges towards Suzaku, takes the phone from him, and slams it on the receiver] Are you nuts?! No way!
[meanwhile, Lelouch is in the cockpit of a stolen Sutherland, conducting terrorist operations in the Saitama ghetto]
Lelouch: [looks at his cell phone] Hmm? Oh, whatever.
[back at Ashford Academy, Suzaku and Shirley are fighting over the phone]
Suzaku: Oh, come on, let me handle this for you! I'll be discreet!
Shirley: I don't want your help, okay?!
Suzaku: It's going to be fine!
[Suzaku and Shirley fumble and drop the phone, and Suzaku falls on top of Shirley; Arthur the cat is also knocked off his perch during the struggle]
Suzaku: Sorry.
[Shirley gasps; Suzaku then grimaces as Arthur bites his hand]
Shirley: Uh-oh. Does that hurt much?
Suzaku: Greatly.

(In the Britannian homeland, 8 years ago)
Royal Guard: Announcing Prince Lelouch vi Britannia, seventeenth heir to the royal Britannian imperial throne!
Male Noble: I heard Empress Marianne was killed inside of the Britannia Palace.
Male Noble: There's no way terrorists could've gotten in there.
Male Noble: Which means that the real assassins must have-
Male Noble: Shh!, beware my friend, you'll regret it if anyone hears that kind of talk around the palace.
Male Noble: And yet the boy remains, even though his mother is dead, is over.
Male Noble: And the Ashford family who stood behind him is finished as well.
Female Noble: And his sister, the princess?
(Nunnally in the hospital)
Male Noble: I understand she was shot in the legs and that she lost her sight!
Male Noble: Blindness caused by trauma though, isn't it?
Male Noble: No difference, now she can't be married off through political gain.

(Lelouch approaching his father, the Britannian Emperor)
Lelouch: Hail, Your Majesty! My mother the Empress is dead.
Charles: Old news. What of it?
Lelouch: What of it?!
Charles: You sought an audience with the Emperor of Britannia to simply inform me of that. Send the next one in. I have no time for these childish games.
(Lelouch running to the emperor)
Lelouch vi Britannia: Father!
(Guards run to stop Lelouch, but Charles raise his hand to halt them)
Guards: Yes, Your Majesty!
Lelouch: Why didn't you keep Mother out of harm's way? You're the emperor, the greatest man in this nation, if not the world, you should've protected her and now you don't even visit Nunnally!
Charles: I've no use for that weakling.
Lelouch: That weakling?
Charles: That is what it means to be royalty.
Lelouch vi Britannia: (angrily) Then I don't want to be your heir, I give up my claim to the throne! (Nobles gasp of what Lelouch is saying) I'm sick of the fighting and scheming over who will succeed you, Father. I've had enough!
Charles zi Britannia: You are dead. You were always been dead to me, dead from the moment you were born. Who gave you the fine clothes you wear and comfortable home? The food you eat and your very life? All of those, I have given to you. In short, you are not nothing to me because you have never existed. Yet you dare to speak such foolishness to me?! (Lelouch falls as his father rises from the throne) Lelouch, you are dead, therefore you are not entitled to any rights. I am sending you and Nunnally to Japan, as prince and princess. You will serve well as bargaining tools.
Lelouch vi Britannia: Until I met you, I was dead an impotent corpse existing behind a false guise of life. A life in which I did nothing real. Day to day I simple went through the motions of living, as if I were a zombie and I always had the feeling that I was gradually dyeing. If I am condemned to go back to that then I would rather...

The Black Knights


(During the hotel hijacking) (Nina sees a Japanese soldier)

Nina Einstein: An…Eleven?
Japanese soldier: [riled] What did you say?!

[Nina gasps in fear.]

Japanese soldier: [point his gun at them] We're not Elevens! We're Japanese, damn it!
Milly Ashford: Yes, we're aware of that! Just lay off of her!
Japanese soldier: Then correct her! We're not called Elevens!
Shirley: Fine, we'll correct her!
Japanese soldier: How dare you speak like that to me! You three, come with me to the next room and I'll teach you a real lesson!
Nina: [sobbing] No…No!

[Euphemia tries to get up, but is stopped by her subordinate.]

Japanese solider: I said, get up now! [grabs Nina's arm]
Nina: Ahhhhh! Let me go!
Euphemia: [stands up] Stop it!
Japanese soldier: Who the hell are you?! [throws Nina to the side]
Euphemia: I demand you to take me to your leader right now! Understand?
Japanese soldier: What?!
Subordinate: [in an urgent whisper] No, Sub-Viceroy, please!
Euphemia: [takes off her glasses] You're addressing Euphemia li Britannia, the Third Princess of the Britannian Empire.

[All Japanese and Britannians present gasp.]

Euphemia: [to Nina] Are you all right, young lady? You haven't been hurt?
Nina: [almost speechless] No…

(Lelouch reveals the Black Knights to the world.)
Lelouch (as Zero): People! Fear us, or rally behind us as you see fit! We are the Black Knights!
Cécile: Black Knights?
Lloyd: Ironic, isn't it? The terrorists referring to themselves as knights?
Zero: We of the Black Knights stand with all those who have no weapons to wield…regardless of whether they be Elevens or Britannians! The Japan Liberation Front cowardly took innocent Britannian civilians hostage, and they mercilessly executed them! It was a wanton and meaningless act; therefore, they have been punished…
Diethard: You heard me right! I said let it run! Liable?! I'll be the one responsible for this!
Zero: …just as former Viceroy Clovis was punished for ordering the slaughter of countless unarmed Elevens. We cannot stand by and allow such cruelty to be carried out, and so we made him pay for his actions. I will not repudiate battle on a fair and level field, but neither will I tolerate a one-sided massacre of the weak by the strong. The only ones who should kill are those who are prepared to be killed! Wherever oppressors abuse their power by attacking those who are powerless, we shall appear again, no matter how mighty or formidable our foe may be!
Kallen: (Thinking.) Knights…for justice?
Zero: Those of you with power, fear us! Those of you without it, rally behind us! We, the Black Knights, shall be the ones who stand in judgment of this world!


Kallen: Ever since we made our big splash at the hotel-jacking, the Black Knights have taken the world by storm. We've become a friend to the weak, just as Zero proclaimed we would. Terrorists who involve civilians, an overbearing military, criminal syndicates, corrupt politicians, and profiteers; if the law would not punish them, then we would. In the blink of an eye, we'd become heroes. Support for us has swelled, and we've even gotten our hands on some Knightmares again. Of course, no one could show that in public, because... Because our leader Zero had killed Prince Clovis. There are many in our ranks who wish to know his true identity, myself included. But if we push too hard, I suspect that he would vanish. And without him... I'm fairly certain we'd be finished.

[Kallen is standing outside the Student Council room]
Kallen: [yawns] Man, this double life sure is a killer.
Milly: [muffled] Come on, Suzaku, hold him down!
Lelouch: [muffled] Damn it, Suzaku, cut it out! [Kallen opens the door to the Student Council room] Stop it! I'm not kidding!
Suzaku: Sorry, Lelouch, but it's the President's orders.
[Kallen finds Nina wearing a hat and sitting at a computer and Suzaku, Shirley, Milly, and Rivalz all dressed in cat costumes and struggling to apply makeup to a visibly defiant Lelouch, who is tied to a chair and struggling to get out]
Lelouch: Yeah, like you're not enjoying this at all?!
Shirley: Would you hold still?!
Milly: [notices Kallen's presence and turns to her] Good "meow"-ning.
Kallen: Good…morning, I guess. [Lelouch, Suzaku, Shirley, and Rivalz all look at her] What is all this?
Rivalz Cardemonde: What do you mean? Didn't we tell you? It's our welcome party for Arthur.
Kallen: Sounds like fun.
Milly: [chuckles] Well, classes are postponed. We might as well have some fun, right?
Shirley: We set some stuff aside for you over here. [points towards a rack of cat costumes and several boxes of accessories] To make up for all my getting upset at you before. Take your pick.
Kallen: What? For me?
Lelouch: She doesn't need a costume.
Kallen: What?
Lelouch: [to Kallen] You're already wearing a mask, right?
Kallen: [sarcastically, to Lelouch] You really are a riot, you know that? You ought to be on television.
Rivalz: [to Shirley] What do you think, Ms. TV Star?
Suzaku: Oh, I thought she meant Lelouch.
Shirley: [sighs] Would you quit joking about that?! The whole thing's a huge pain in the butt! We've been hounded with questions day and night! Even in the bath!
Milly: We haven't been able to leave school grounds in a week!
Rivalz: Not that I don't feel for you, but I don't see why we can't leave either!
Milly: Hmm, that's the price of friendship. The Romance of the Three Kingdoms: "It matters not that we were born apart. Upon this day, we die as one."
Rivalz: Is that your idea of a love quote?
Milly: If I go down, then we all do.
Rivalz: That's a little dark. Right, Suzaku?
Suzaku: I'm glad… [tears start welling up in his eyes] That we could all be together again… You know, like this?
Rivalz: [jumps over Lelouch] Come on! Hey, we're supposed to be unwinding here! [takes Suzaku down to the ground with him]
[Lelouch, Shirley, and Milly all laugh]
Shirley: That's what's so refreshing about Suzaku, though.
Milly: Yeah, but once in a while, you just want him to get a clue, you know?
Suzaku: [muffled as Rivalz starts pushing on his cheeks] Oh, sorry about that.
Rivalz: Aww, you wuv it, puddy tat!
[everyone starts laughing]
Kallen: [thinking] It's so funny to think that I helped save their lives.

C.C.: [thinking] "False tears can only hurt others. False smiles can only hurt yourself."

Guren Dances

Cornelia: You, the Japan Liberation Front. You whose time has left behind. You who have forgotten basic human decency. You and your dream of a bygone golden age shall fall and rot to nothingness.

C.C.: Lelouch, do you know why snow is white? It's because it has forgotten what color it once was...

Battle for Narita

C.C.:In their hearts, everyone has faith in their own existence and ultimate triumph, however when time and destiny unfold, this faith turns out to be quite fleeting and pointless.
[Voice over at the beginning of the episode.]
Narrator: Man wants to believe his victory inevitable, but, in the face of time, hope is useless when one's fate has already been decided.

[Kewell is trying to engage his ejection seat as his Sutherland is being fried by the Guren Mk-II]
Kewell: Come on, move! I can't lose to Elevens! I am a Britannian!
[Kewell's Sutherland explodes, killing him]
Villetta: [horrified] Lord Kewell!

[a gravely wounded Jeremiah limps in front of a Britannian army cargo truck]
Britannian scientist #1: Ugh, another soldier!
Britannian scientist #2: No wonder our battalions fell apart.
Jeremiah: I swear I'm not Orange! ZERO!!!
[Jeremiah collapses]

Lelouch (in response to C.C.'s question from the previous episode):C.C., I do not know why snow is white, but I do find such white snow beautiful.

The Messenger from Kyoto

Lelouch: I am grateful, Lord Kirihara.
Taizō Kirihara: Are you embarking on the path of blood?
Lelouch: Indeed, if that is my destiny...

Shirley at Gunpoint

Cécile: Oh, Lloyd! Care for another lesson in proper social etiquette? You look like you have some time to kill.
Lloyd: I'll have to take a pass on that.

Suzaku: A victory won through dishonest means is no victory at all.

Lelouch: I must spill yet more blood, so the blood already spilt will not be in vain.

Geass vs. Geass

[Shirley visits the memorial at Narita]
Shirley: Lulu, how could you do this?
Mao: Yes, how could he?
[Shirley gasps and turns to face Mao]
Mao: [claps] A very fine memorial. Isn't that right, Ms. Shirley Fenette?

Mao: He's a cruel man, isn't he? Lelouch.
Shirley: How do you know about Lulu?
Mao: Aw, he deceived you. Never told you he's Zero.
Shirley: [gasps and drops her bag] Who are you?! What do you want?!
Mao: The same mouth that ordered your father's death stole a kiss from your tender lips. He's a very bad man, and you like it. [Shirley shudders as he walks towards her] Punishment must be measured out, to him…and to you.
Shirley: To me?
Mao: I know everything. All that happened that night.
[flash back to the previous night, during the Black Knight assault on the Britannian forces at the harbor; Shirley is in shock that Lelouch and Zero have been revealed to be one and the same]
Viletta: Is that Zero?
[Shirley stands aside as Viletta approaches the unconscious Lelouch, kneels next to him, and grabs him by the hair]
Viletta: Well, well, what a shocker. The student is Zero himself. A Britannian? [laughs evilly before letting go of Lelouch's hair] When I bring him to Viceroy Cornelia, she'll make me a noble! Not just a knight of honor, real nobility! And he's still alive, too! What kind of grand execution will they have in store for him. [stands up to face Shirley] Of course, you'll be rewarded too--
[Viletta gasps, as Shirley is now pointing her gun at her]
Viletta: Stupid of me. He's your boyfriend, isn't he?! [charges towards Shirley]
Shirley: Lulu! [guns down Viletta]
[flash forward to the present day]
Mao: So you're a killer, too. Just like Zero.
Shirley: [gasps] No! That's not true! I just--
Mao: And you actually used your father's death for your own gain.
Shirley: [gasps again] No! I just-- I just--
Mao: Cunning little woman. You knew he'd feel sorry for you, didn't you, so you played it for all it was worth.
Shirley: No! You're wrong!
Mao: Did his sympathy make you all tingly?
Shirley: Stop it!
Mao:: Playing the tragic heroine again?
Shirley: No, I'm not doing that!
Mao: A girl who kills and then goes fishing for attention? Only evil witches do that.
Shirley: I didn't-- I never meant--
Mao: [walks even closer to Shirley] You knew there was another girl who liked Lelouch, and you wanted to get him away from her. [Shirley gasps once more] Now you have to pay the price, Shirley.
[Shirley falls to her knees and breaks down in tears]
Mao: Do you want to carry these feelings around for the rest of your life? All by yourself? [starts clapping] Unless you atone and completely free your heart, you and Lelouch will both be lost in your sins, forever.

C.C.: [speaking to Lelouch] You should stay way from those you do not wish to lose.
Shirley: I see. You loved her, didn't you? You must feel terrible.
Lelouch: Right now, I don't know anymore.
Shirley: Well, the morning always comes again.
Lelouch: What?
Shirley: I have to say it's funny, I know I came out here for some reason, but I can't remember exactly what it was now. Maybe it's because I already put the whole thing behind me, something I wanted to let go of. Maybe it was something I thought I couldn't forget. Maybe I was full of sadness. But, morning still comes right? That's why you shouldn't hold your thoughts back like that.
Lelouch: Yes, you're right. I feel the same way now, Thanks a lot, for everything

Cheering Mao

[C.C. has followed Mao's request to meet him at Clovisland]
Mao: [is riding on the carousel] C.C., your mind is so quiet! It's the only one I can't read! You really are the best there is!
C.C.: As childish as ever, I see.
Mao: I'm a prince on a white stallion…and a prince has to rescue the princess! [gets off the carousel and laughs] Does that make you happy, C.C.?
C.C.: Mao, we talked about this before. I told you that you and I--
Mao: Those were all lies! Lies! C.C., you love me, and this is how I know. [takes off his headphones]
Recording of C.C.'s voice: Thank you, Mao. Mao! Mao.
C.C.: Stop it!
[flash back to Mao's younger days as an orphan]
Mao: BE QUIET!!!
C.C.: Don't listen to them. Just listen to the sound of my voice. That's it. Since my mind is the only one you can't read, and you can only be happy when you're with me, I will stay with you always. Yes…I'm right here, so you don't need to worry.
[flash forward to the present day]
Mao: C.C., you're the only one! The only one I want, forever! Lelouch doesn't matter at all! [walks towards C.C.] If you'll just come with me--
C.C.: Stop it! [knocks Mao's headphones away and pulls a gun on him] I should have done this a long, long time ago.

[C.C. falls to her knees after being shot in the arm by Mao]]
Mao: I knew it! I knew you couldn't pull the trigger! That's because you really love me, C.C.! [laughs hysterically and claps]
C.C.: You're wrong! I was just using you right from the start!
Mao: What are you saying?! You shouldn't tell lies like that! You really shouldn't! [shoots C.C.] Lies are very, very wicked! Wicked lies! [shoots C.C. four more times] Don't worry! [shoots C.C. once more] I understand! C.C., you must listen to me! I've built a big, brand-new house in Australia! A very quiet, white, immaculate, special house! But to get to Australia, you'll need to take an airplane, and there isn't very much room. [starts walking away from C.C.] The thing is, C.C., you're a little too big to bring on a plane. [picks up a chainsaw] So that's why… [starts up the chainsaw] …I'm going to make you compact! It'll take no time at all! [saws right through a metal signpost, seemingly as if to prove his point]
C.C.: Is this your revenge? You're punishing me?
Mao: Oh, no. I'm not. I'm not, I'm not, I'm not, I'm not at all! [turns towards C.C. and walks towards her] I'm showing you my gratitude!
Lelouch: [via prerecorded message played through Clovisland's television system] So this is the place that you picked.
[Mao turns off his chainsaw as he looks at the screen]
Lelouch: A place where there'd be no one else's thoughts to bother you. That narrowed it way down.
Mao: Lelouch?
Lelouch: Since your Geass has a total maximum range of 500 meters, it can't reach me here at Tokyo Tower.
Mao: [laughs and claps] That's true, that's very true! But what can you do from so far away, hmm? After taking all that trouble to hack into the system, what's your grand plan? A remote-control attack with some battery-operated toys? Or a tongue-lashing to lecture me into submission? [no response from Lelouch] Ah, cat got your tongue now. If you want C.C., then you're gonna have to come--
Lelouch: Mao, think! You don't believe "C.C." is her real name, do you? She never even whispers it to anyone.
[a shocked Mao looks at the screen, then at C.C.]
Lelouch: But I know it, though. She told me her true name.
Mao: Is that right, C.C.? You never told me, ever, ever! But you told it to him?!
Lelouch: You know why? Because C.C. is mine. C.C. belongs to me in every possible way.
Mao: No! She doesn't! She doesn't, she doesn't, she doesn't! She was mine long before she met you!
Lelouch: I have gained every single thing from her, including all of the parts that you have never seen. All of them.
Mao: Lelouch! [starts up his chainsaw again] Face me! [charges towards the screen and starts slashing at it] Lelouch! Come here! Come here so I can look into your mind! I'll see the truth! I'll see what a liar you are! Liar!
Lelouch: Mao. You've lost.
Mao: What are you talking about?! [turns off his chainsaw] I don't care! I'm going to be with C.C.!

Nunnally Held Hostage

[Rivalz interrupts a conversation between Lelouch and Suzaku by charging in on his motorcycle]]
Rivalz: Hey, Lelouch! [gets off his motorcycle]
Lelouch Lamperouge: What's wrong?
Rivalz: I heard the President's doing a blind date thing again!
Lelouch: Yeah, today.
Rivalz: Today?! [grabs Lelouch by the collar] Why didn't you tell me about it?!
Lelouch: Because it'd make you cry.
Rivalz: Boys don't cry!
Suzaku: It's okay. I didn't know about it either.
Rivalz: [lets go of Lelouch and turns towards Suzaku] Don't give me your emo routine!
Suzaku: Emo?
Lelouch: I guess compassion is not in fashion these days.

[Mao's plan to blow up Nunnally has been thwarted by Lelouch and Suzaku's combined efforts]
Lelouch: Hmph.
Mao: You think you've beat me, huh?!
Suzaku: [grabs Mao] Stop it!
Mao: Get your hands off of me, father-killer!
[Suzaku is paralyzed in shock]
Mao: You killed your father seven years ago. Heh. He called for do-or-die resistance, and you thought stopping him would end the war. What a childish idea. The fact is, you're a murderer!
Suzaku: That's not true! I just-- I--
Mao: How lucky for you that no one ever found out. All the adults lied to protect you.
Lelouch: But all the reports said his suicide was a protest against the military actions.
Mao: A big, fat lie, all of it!
Lelouch: A lie?
Suzaku: I didn't have any choice! If I didn't, Japan would have--
Mao: That's how you justify it in retrospect? Well, it explains your death wish! [Suzaku gasps] You want to save people's lives? It's your own wretched soul you're trying to save! That's why you're always charging into danger, placing yourself on the edge of death!
[Suzaku falls to his knees and wails in anguish]
Mao: You're no hero! You're just trying to wash the blood off your hands! A little brat begging to be punished!
Lelouch: MAO!!! [activates Geass] NEVER SPEAK AGAIN!!!
Mao: What-- No!
[Mao is overcome by Lelouch's command and is reduced to unintelligible babbling; Lelouch charges towards Mao and attempts to punch him, only to miss as Mao starts walking away]
Lelouch: Mao!
[Mao exits the church and catches sight of C.C. standing in the courtyard]
C.C.: I did love you, Mao.
[Mao babbles as he walks towards C.C.]
C.C.: Mao, I want you to go and wait for me…in C's World. [puts a silenced pistol to Mao's neck and fires, killing him]
[Mao's corpse drops to the ground right before the church doors close; Lelouch looks back at a catatonic Suzaku]
Suzaku: I just… I just…

Nunnally: [after touching the cheek of a crying Suzaku] My mom told me that human contact is the best cure for teary eyes.

C.C.: [Narrating] In this world, evil can arise from the best intentions. And there is good that can come from evil intentions. How then should Lelouch's actions be taken? Every man has his day of judgement, does he not? Geass: He who uses this inhuman power will find his heart isolated; whether he wants it that way or not. Thus he plummets into the abyss that lies good and evil. But if a man can climb out of that abyss and into the light, then that man has the soul of a king.


[Tamaki is overseeing maintenance of the Guren Mk-II]
Tamaki: Look, just stuff 'em in and close the lid, for crying out loud! It's almost time to move out!
Rakshata Chawla: Take your time and treat it with the utmost care!
[Tamaki and the maintenance crew turn to look at the newly-arrived Rakshata]
Rakshata: It was far more fragile than any of you when I gave birth to it!
Tamaki: Huh? Who the hell are you?!
Rakshata: I am its mother.

Kyōshiro Tohdoh: [speaking to Suzaku] Win or lose, you'll gain nothing if you don't give your all! That's true of both men and nations!

[After an explosion happens in the prison.]
Lloyd: Good, now we're free of all this hellish paperwork.

I Order You, Suzaku Kururugi

Diethard: There is no such thing as objective information, Zero. Journalism is, after all, a human creation.

Island of the Gods

Diethard: At times the life of a single man is worth more than that of a million, I thought that'd be common sense to a soldier.
Tohdoh: You dare say that here?
Ohgi: Easy guys.
C.C.: Oh, alright, then I'll tell you, he's very much alive.
Tohdoh: We have no time for your wishful thinking.
C.C.: The information's true. I simply know it.
Tamaki: Oh, you're an oracle now? I told you to shut your trap and to get some training on a Knightmare, you dumbass!
C.C.: Dumbass? Oh really? It's been ages since anyone's dared to refer to me in such a rude manner.
Tamaki: Like Zero's mistress has any right to get uppity with us.
C.C.: I said you were wrong, you are a man who only has vulgar ideas.

War at Kyushu

Zero: [speaking to the Black Knights] Change will never come about it you don't make it happen!

Euphemia: [speaking to Suzaku] I order you to love me!...And in return, I will love forever! Suzaku, I love your stubbornness, and your kindness and your strength! Your sad eyes, your clumsiness, and the way you have trouble with cats!

Declaration at the School Festival

[Cécile is playing human whack-a-mole with an inflatable mallet at the student festival]
Cécile: [giggles] School festivals are such fun! I feel so free! [giggles again]
Britannian soldier #1: That one she keeps whacking, doesn't he look like Lloyd?
Britannian soldier #2: No great wonder. Working under that guy must really drive her out of her mind.

Euphemia: I have a very special announcement. I am Euphemia, Sub-Viceroy of Area 11 of the Holy Britannian Empire. There is something of great consequence that I wish to tell you all today. I, Euphemia li Britannia, hereby declare the formation of the Specially Administrated Zone of Japan in the area surrounding Mt. Fuji.
Lelouch: What?! Britannia has-?!
Suzaku: They're recognizing... Japan?!
Diethard: DAMN IT! I never thought of this game! Even though it's only in a limited area!
Euphemia: Within the Specially Administrated Zone of Japan, Elevens will be allowed to call themselves Japanese. Restrictions against Elevens and special rights for Britannians will no longer exist within this zone. It will be a place where Elevens and Britannians live side-by-side as equals.
Lelouch: (thinking) Stop this, Euphie! I already thought through every detail of that scenario, it's nothing but an empty dream!
Euphemia: Do you hear me, Zero? I don't care about your past nor who you are underneath that mask. I beg you, join us in creating the special zone of freedom.
Student 1: Join Zero?
Student 2: No way, just think about Prince Clovis!
Cornelia: (enraged) WHAT IS SHE DOING?!!
Euphemia: Zero, help me build a new future within Britannia. A place for everyone!

Bloodstained Euphie

Charles: [laughs maniacally] Yes, you're worthy of being called my child now!

Euphemia: [after Lelouch agreed with the Admninistrative Zone of Japan] Do you seriously think I'm going to shoot you even if you threaten me?
Lelouch: No, I don't. But no one escapes my commands. I have the power to command anyone as they forcefully obey.
Euphemia: [giggles] Stop it, Lelouch, you're being silly.
Lelouch: I'm serious. If I order you to kill me, shoot Suzaku, or even if I tell you to kill all the Japanese, you will follow me with no hesitation.

[Lelouch's geass suddenly activated and it affected Euphemia]

Euphemia: [with Lelouch's geass on her] No... N-no, I can't... I d-don't want to kill... W-why...? I-it can't be, I can't... kill... [kneeled down]
Lelouch: [just realized he has activated his geass unknowingly to Euphemia] It can't be! I'm like Mao--I can't control my geass anymore!
Lelouch: No, Euphy! Forget that order!
Euphemia: [Lelouch's geass completely devoured her] That's right, I must kill all Japanese.
Lelouch: No, Euphy!!

[Euphemia picked up Lelouch's gun and ran outside towards the stadium]

Andreas Darlton: Princess! Where's Zero?
Euphemia: [to all] To all those who call themselves Japanese, I have a favor to ask! Do you all mind dying?

[all Elevens gasped to what Euphemia just said]

Eleven 1: Is she insane?
Eleven 2: She must be out of her mind!
Euphemia: I want you all to just simply fall off the cliff but it's impossible, right? So I order all my fellow Britannians--kill all the Japanese!

[Britannians hesitate]'

Darlton: What are you saying princess? Please stop this nonsense and-- [Euphemia shoots him]
Euphemia: I'm sorry, but I must do this. I must kill all Japanese. Go ahead, Britannian Soldiers! Hurry and kill every Japanese here!

[Zero arrives in the stadium, attempting to stop Euphemia]

Zero: Euphy! Stop this! [Britannian guards blocked Zero] No, get out of my way... [activated his geass] GET OUT!

[commotion has stopped when Euphemia shoots an Eleven]

Euphemia: See? We need to kill all Japanese. So what are you waiting for? Kill them and don't let a single one alive!

[Britannians and Knightmare Frames all obey Euphemia's order. They began to shoot each and every Japanese in sight.] [Zero tried to stop Euphemia, but finds it imposssible]

Lelouch: [speaking to Euphemia] People are more susceptible to miracles than logic.

At Least with Sorrow

Euphemia: I, Euphemia li Britannia, bid all of you within the sound of my voice to heed the following command: Seek out any Japanese you can find and please kill them. Leave not a single one of them alive.

[Tamaki attacks a Britannian official in the aftermath of Euphemia's massacre]
Tamaki: Equality?! You can shove that straight up your administrative ass! You lured us into a death trap! You just made the biggest mistake of your lives, you got that?!

[Kallen has found a Britannian Gloucester, which is now shooting panicking Japanese.]
Kallen: [inside the Guren Mk-II] Damn Britannian! Stop what you're doing!
[Kallen releases a few missiles, which leaves the Gloucester unarmed.]
Euphemia: [who is the pilot in the unarmed Knightmare] How rude of you! I'm Euphemia li Britannia, the 3rd Princess of the Imperial Palace!
Kallen: Ah, so this is where you're hiding, Puppet Princess.
Euphemia: Oh, you're the one from Kamine Island!
Kallen: Why the heck did you fool us?! You just killed a hundred Elevens! Don't you feel any awe or conscience?!
Euphemia: I must kill all the Japanese...
Kallen: So, that really is it. Fine, I'll finish you now. Any last words?
[As the Guren Mk-II closely aims at Euphemia, Zero and C.C. arrive in the Gawain.]
Lelouch: No, Kallen! I shall be handling the princess on my own.
Kallen: Do you want her alive?
Lelouch: I believe that would be unnecessary anymore.
[The Gawain swiftly destroys Euphemia's Gloucester, reducing it to a pile of scrap.]
Euphemia: [gets out of the Gloucester and looks around for a gun] Kill the Japanese! I must kill... Hurry, hurry! [She finds a gun and shoots the Gawain in defiant panic. The gun runs out of bullets, so Euphemia looks for extra rounds. As she finds some, Zero gets down from his Knightmare.]
Euphemia: Oh, I thought you were Japanese! Say, Zero, would you like to join me build the Special Administrative Zone of Japan... [realized she's talking different] Um... Japan...?
Lelouch: I would have liked to, Euphemia... together. [He pulls out his gun and aims it at Euphemia.]
[At that moment, Suzaku in the Lancelot catches sight of Euphemia.]
Suzaku: [breathes a sigh of relief] Euphie...
[Zero suddenly shoots Euphemia, the bullet piercing her stomach. Suzaku gasps in horror.]
Euphemia: [dumbstruck as she starts to fall down in slow-motion] Lelouch... Why...?
Lelouch: Farewell, Euphie... you may have been the first girl I ever loved.
[Euphemia hits the ground and lays still. A moment of silence persists before...]
Suzaku: [enraged and anguished] NOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Lelouch: [surprised] Suzaku?!

[Lelouch has turned over command of the G-1 Base to Diethard and is leaving to pilot the Gawain with C.C. when he runs into Kaguya Sumeragi]
Lelouch Lamperouge: You're Sumeragi's--
Kaguya Sumeragi: Thank goodness I made it in time! That was so mean of you, the way headed off to battle without me! I've been a huge fan of yours ever since your big debut! I was hoping I'd finally get to talk to you. Wow, you're really tall, aren't you?! Don't worry, though! I'll catch up with you pretty soon!
Diethard: Lady Kaguya, I thought the heads of the six houses remained in Fuji.
Kaguya: I followed after you so I could watch my future husband fight.
[Lelouch, C.C., and Diethard are puzzled by Kaguya's statement]
Lelouch: Don't joke around.
Kaguya: Well, once you win this battle, you'll eventually need a wife, won't you? I mean, I know your identity is a big secret and all, but you're gonna need somebody as your public face, right?
Lelouch: Really? You believe we're going to win this battle?
Kaguya: Of course! I am the goddess of victory, after all.
Lelouch: I'd be lucky to have you, then. Unfortunately, I've already made a contract with the devil.
Kaguya: Huh?
Lelouch: I have no room in my life for deities right now.
[Lelouch and C.C. leave for the Gawain as Kaguya looks on]

Lelouch: Before creation there must be destruction. If my soul stands in the way, then I'll toss it aside. Yes, I have no choice but to move forward.

The Collapsing Stage

Suzaku: When I find you, Zero, I'm going to KILL YOU!!!

[Viletta is sneaking through the ruins of the Tokyo Settlement]
Viletta: [thinking] The power to control people and erase their memories. When you think about it, it makes sense and explains everything that's happened till now. And as a result of its aftereffects, I fell in love with a damned Eleven!

[Suzaku has just defeated Kallen in Knightmare Frame combat]
Suzaku: Tell me, where is Zero?!
Kallen: [nonchalant] You know, I really hate pushy guys.
Suzaku: Okay. Then die here.

[Suzaku has just blundered into a trap laid for him by Lelouch, C.C., Sayoko, and Rakshata]
Suzaku: Zero! You deceive the people who trust you to the very end! You betrayer!
Lelouch: Hmph. I've no time to argue which of us is the bigger hypocrite. Farewell, Suzaku Kururugi.
Suzaku: Damn you!

[Lelouch and C.C. have arrived at the Britannian Government Bureau, where Cornelia is waiting for them]
Cornelia: Welcome, Zero! I figured you would show up here as soon as you heard about the air raid. Now…join us for your welcome soirée. Care for a dance?

[Ohgi is meeting with Viletta in private]
Ohgi: Chigusa, why did you come to this battlefield? We need to find someplace safe for you. Stay with me for now.
[Viletta backs away from Ohgi when he tries to get close to her]
Ohgi: Look, I'm sorry I hid this from you, but everything I'm doing is for the sake of peace! If Zero succeeds in freeing Japan from Britannia, then we can finally be together!
Viletta: Oh, stop before I puke!
[Viletta grabs Ohgi's pistol from his jacket pocket and presses the barrel to his back]
Viletta: Me, together with an Eleven like you? What a horrible thought. [scoffs] My name is Viletta Nu, and I am a knight of honor of Britannia.
[Ohgi turns to face Viletta, then gets shot in the stomach]
Ohgi: [falls to his knees] So I see, Chigusa… You've gotten your memory back… [groans, then falls to the floor]

[Two Black Knights searching for Viletta in the Ganymede hangar at Ashford Academy are startled when the Ganymede, rigged with a primitive nuclear bomb, activates]
Nina: Zero, Princess Euphemia…
[cut to the Britannian Government Bureau, where Cornelia is fighting Lelouch and C.C.]
Cornelia: …WILL BE AVENGED!!!
[the Gawain misses an attack on Cornelia's Gloucester, which counters by charging with its lance]
Cornelia: What's wrong, Zero?!
[Cornelia's Gloucester strafes the Gawain with its machine gun as Lelouch desperately types away at the Gawain's controls]
Lelouch Lamperouge: The specs on this thing are far superior to hers!
[the Gawain attempts to take off, only to get snagged by the Gloucester's Slash Harkens; the Gloucester now attempts to latch onto the larger Knightmare]
Cornelia: You're just a weakling! I have you! I have you right where I want you! Your life is now in my hands!
Lelouch: Cornelia!
[Cornelia readies the final blow]
Cornelia: This is your judgment!
[out of nowhere, Cornelia's Gloucester gets impaled by a Knightmare's EM lance]
Darlton: [via radio] Princess, it's me, Darlton.
Cornelia: [gasps, dumbstruck by Darlton's treachery] Why? Darlton, why?
Darlton: Don't be afraid. I haven't come to kill you, milady.
Lelouch: Well, he made it.
Darlton: I've come to deliver you to Zero, Your Highness.
[Darlton suddenly relents as the Geass command placed on him wears off and he sees Cornelia's Gloucester plummeting to the ground]
Darlton: What have I done?! Why, Princess?!
[Cornelia's Gloucester smashes on the ground]
Lelouch: Thank you, Darlton.
[Lelouch repays Darlton for his service by firing on his Gloucester with the Gawain's hadron cannons]
Darlton: [as his Gloucester is exploding] PRINCESS!!!
[Darlton is consumed in the explosion of his Gloucester.]

(Nunnally is sitting in the student council room where she hears a door open)

Nunnally: Hello, oh who's there? Is that you C.C.?
'(V.V. appears)
V.V.: No, it's not.
Nunnally: Hm? but-
V.V.: Nunnally, I've come to take you with me.


[Lelouch arrives where Princess Cornelia is badly injured]
Cornelia: So, you were Zero... The entire time. Darlton was right, he said it was someone with a grudge against the Britannian Imperial Family. You... You did this.. For Nunnally?
Lelouch: Correct. I will demolish the present world and build a new and better one in its place.
Cornelia: You killed them all for the sake of that madness?! Clovis?! Even Euphie?!
Lelouch: You're one to talk, my dear sister. Considering how you idolized my mother, Marianne the Flash.
Cornelia: It would seem that talking with you further... would approve to be utterly pointless.
Lelouch: Indeed? Well then, Lelouch vi Britannia orders you to answer him.
[Lelouch used his Geass on Cornelia]
Cornelia: Go on.
Lelouch: Sister, are you the one who killed my mother?
Cornelia: I'm not.
Lelouch: Then who was it?
Cornelia: I don't know.
Lelouch: But you were put in charge of her personal guard, were you not?
Cornelia: Yes.
Lelouch: Then why did you withdraw her escort?
Cornelia: I was asked to.
Lelouch: By who?
Cornelia: Lady Marianne.
Lelouch: Mother did... That's impossible! My mother knew she will be attacked that day?! No, that can't! She did. She would've got us out of there! What really happened back then?! Who killed her?! Who killed my mother, damn it?!
[Cornelia doesn't answer]
Lelouch: You don't know the truth?! Then who does?! Someone must know, you yourself investigated of what occurred that day!
Cornelia: I remembered His Majesty, the emperor, ordered Schneizel to transport the body out of there.
Lelouch: The body? You mean there are others? Then what was in that coffin?
C.C.: Hey! Get back in here!
Lelouch: I know, the Government Bureau Defense Forces will be here soon.
C.C.: No! Your little sister's been kidnapped!
Lelouch: Hmm? C.C., this is not the time for jokes. We'll take Cornelia back to the command center as our hostage.
C.C.: She's been taken! I just know because she's the reason you live! She's on Kamine Island!
Lelouch: Kamine Island?
[Lelouch is preparing to take Cornelia prisoner and leave with C.C. when Jeremiah barges in with the Siegfried]
Jeremiah: ALL HAIL BRITANNIA!!! Mister Zero, can it really be?! What?! Oh, what luck, what fate, what evil fortune!
Lelouch: Is that you, Orange Boy?!
Jeremiah: [stammers] Oh, I beseech you! I'm begging you, please die.
Lelouch: Get Cornelia!
C.C.: I'm already on it!
Jeremiah: Zero! I…must rid the world of the Empire's enemies! Yes, and so…ALL HAIL BRITANNIA!!!

[Lloyd and Cécile are on board the Avalon; Cécile is suiting up for deployment in her own Knightmare Frame]
Cécile: Why did you try to stop Suzaku?
Lloyd: I'm a military contractor.
Cécile: You didn't want him killed, did you?
Lloyd: Why should I care? You know as well as I do. The biggest human flaw is that we're so pitifully fragile in our bodies, our hearts, and our relationships with each other.
Cécile: [puts on her earpiece] Nevertheless, you can't bend the world or people any which way you want.
Lloyd: I want every part in my mechanisms to function exactly as I wish. If we lose Kururugi, we'll just have to find another devicer.

[Jeremiah has tracked Lelouch and C.C. to Kamine Island and is engaging them with the Siegfried]
Jeremiah: Zero, it is I! Repent is now!
Lelouch: Stubborn ass!

[Jeremiah has hit the Gawain twice and is readying the Siegfried for the finishing blow]
Jeremiah: It's time for my wonderful vindication!
[Lelouch fires the Gawain's hadron cannons at the ocean surface, generating a massive plume of water]
Jeremiah: Insidious isolation impudence!

[in Zero's absence, the Britannian forces have managed to rally and push back the Black Knights]
Claudio Darlton: Hold your ground! Victory's within our reach! Be strong!
Nagisa Chiba: Damn it, we can't hold out!
Shōgo Asahina: Enemy reinforcements will be here soon!
Kento Sugiyama: What should we do?!
[Sugiyama watches Inoue's Burai get shot and explode, killing her]
Sugiyama: Inoue? Ugh, where the hell is he?! [fires the machine gun of his Burai into the air in vain] Zero!
Gilbert G.P. Guilford: All forces, charge! We'll smash these filthy rebels with one blow!
[Tohdoh's custom Gekka attempts to slice through the Britannian offensive]
Tohdoh: Fight to your last breath! Stop at nothing! Because if they break through here, our forces will collapse completely!
[meanwhile, Diethard's forces have been forced to retreat to Ashford Academy]
Diethard: [thinking] It's not that Tohdoh isn't a brilliant military leader. He simply lacks the incredible charisma that Zero possesses. We need him! He can't run out on us, not now!
[Kaguya has been left to look after the G-1 on the outskirts of the Tokyo Settlement]
Kaguya: [thinking] Oh, Zero, have you really abandoned us? Have you abandoned Japan?!

Lelouch: That trap at the entrance was designed to buy them time. Was I their intended target? Or was it C.C.? No matter. The first thing to do is to make sure Nunnally is alright.
[Lelouch walks to the door and puts his hands on it. Suddenly, someone shoots it. Suzaku has arrived, holding a gun.]
Suzaku: Turn and face me. Very slowly.
Lelouch: [thinking] Damn it! Why now?
Suzaku: Didn't you hear me, Zero? I said, "Turn and face me. Very slowly."
Lelouch: Euphemia randomly murdered throngs of innocent Japanese people. You fight for a woman like th--?
Suzaku: Your Geass power is quite convenient, isn't it?
Lelouch: [gasps]
Suzaku: You get to hide in the shadows while others take all the blame for doing your dirty work. You're just an arrogant coward. That's your true nature, the real you. Kallen!
Kallen: [gasps, shown to be behind Suzaku, hidden until now]
Suzaku: Don't you want to know Zero's true identity, too?
Kallen: What are you saying?
Suzaku: You have a right to bear witness. [raises his gun]
Kallen: [gasp] No! Wait!
[Suzaku fires a bullet into Lelouch's helmet. The bullet ricochets off the mask, cracking it perfectly in half. The halves clatter to the floor as Suzaku and Kallen now see the identity of Zero. A long pause follows as a slight trickle of blood comes from Lelouch's forehead.]
Kallen: [voice shaking] But how...?! [falls to her knees] How could you?!
Suzaku: [solemnly, lowering his gun] I didn't want it... to be you.
Kallen: [still in shock] L-Lelouch is...
Lelouch: Yes, I am Zero, the man who leads the Black Knights, who challenges the Holy Britannian Empire, the one who holds the entire world in his hand.
Kallen: You used us, the Japanese people? You used me?
Lelouch: And, as a result, Japan will be freed. You certainly can't complain about that.
[Kallen sheds a tear, still shocked and feeling betrayed.]
Suzaku: [subtly infuriated] I should have arrested you while I had the chance.
Lelouch: You knew it was me?
Suzaku: I wasn't sure at first, so I convinced myself that it wasn't true. But I really wanted to believe in you. But you were lying to us, to me. Your sister, Euphie. And Nunnally.
[Kallen stands and stumbles while Lelouch speaks.]
Lelouch: Yes, and now, Nunnally's been kidnapped.
[Suzaku reacts in surprise to this news, looking concerned all of a sudden.]
Lelouch: Please, Suzaku, can't we call a temporary truce? I need your help! Together we'll be able to save Nunnally. There's nothing in the world that you and I can't do together.
[Kallen is shaking, still in shock. Meanwhile, Suzaku regains his composure, becoming furious.]
Suzaku: [angrily] I'm done with that! Had you only joined up with Euphie first, we wouldn't be here! If you and she had combined forces, things would be different! The world could have been--!
Lelouch: [cutting Suzaku off] That's all in the past! Over and done with.
Suzaku: [shocked by Lelouch's cold tone] Past?!
Lelouch: You killed your own father, didn't you?! Wallow in remorse when you have time for it!
Suzaku: [shouting] No! You're hopeless!
Lelouch: What?
Suzaku: I know you! In the very end, you'd betray the entire world, the way it's betrayed you! I'm not going to let your sick, twisted dream be realized!
Lelouch: You fool! You think ideals alone can change the world?! Fine! Then go right ahead and SHOOT ME! Come on! [Attaches a sakuradite bomb to his chest] Set your aim on this liquid sakuradite!
Kallen: [gasps loudly]
Lelouch: If my heart stops, this vial will explode, and you'll both die with me.
Suzaku: Damn you!
Lelouch: Listen, I'll make a deal with you. I want to know who told you about Geass. Did they abduct Nunnally?
[Lelouch's emotional state visibly deteriorates as Suzaku rails on.]
[Lelouch finally snaps and withdraws his own gun in a rage!]
Lelouch: SUZAKU!!! [aims his gun at Suzaku]
Suzaku: [voice echoing] LELOOOOOOOOOUCH!!! [aims back]
[A gunshot rings out.]

Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2


The Day a Demon Awakens

Kōsetsu Urabe: We're the only ones left now. This is all that remains of the Black Knights, who, along with Zero, once struck terror in the heart of Britannia. Still, it's too soon to give into despair. If Operation Flying Swallow Four is successful, then…
Black Knights: Yes.
Urabe: Forgive me. Here's to you.
[Urabe and the other Black Knights drink from saucers of sake]
Urabe: [raises his saucer into the air] To victory! Long live Japan! [drops his saucer to the floor]
Black Knights: [drop their saucers to the floor] Long live Japan!

[Tamaki, Chiba, Ohgi, and Tohdoh have been imprisoned for their involvement with the Black Knights; Tamaki has just been assaulted by two Britannian prison guards]
Tamaki: [growls as he gets back up] If Zero was here, you wouldn't be acting so tough!
Chiba: Do me a favor! Don't say that traitor's name again!
Tamaki: Hey, Zero didn't betray us!
Britannian prison guard: Shut up, you stinking Eleven! [hits Tamaki with the butt of his rifle]
Ohgi: There has to be a reason for what he did.
Chiba: What reason?! Why'd the commander vanish during the final decisive battle like that?!
Tohdoh: Stop it! It serves no purpose. Zero's dead, after all.
Ohgi: [gasps] He's dead?

[Li Xingke, part of the Chinese Federation diplomatic party to Area 11, is accosted by two Britannian security guards]
Britannian security guard #1: May we have what you're carrying, sir?
Britannian security guard #2: Our security is perfect. You don't need to carry that antique weapon here.
[Xingke unsheathes his sword, slashes at the two guards, and sheathes back his sword in one stroke; the guards are unharmed, but their severed belts then drop to the ground]
Gao Hai: Xingke! That was rude of you!
Li Xingke: Please forgive me. But I hoped it would offer you and the other Britannians a better understanding of the Chinese Federation.

[Lelouch has regained his memories and the use of his Geass and is confronting the black-ops forces sent to kill him and C.C.]
Lelouch: Before you dispose of me, I'd like you to answer a question.
[both Lelouch and C.C. stand to face the black-ops soldiers]
Britannian black-ops soldier #1: That girl's still alive!
Britannian black-ops soldier #2: Impossible! She was shot through the heart!
Lelouch: [starts walking towards the Britannian black-ops soldiers] If being powerless is so terribly wrong, then does having power make you right? Do you find vengeance evil? What's your value of friendship? Is it justice?
Britannian intelligence officer: There's no justice or evil. The only truth that's left for you, bait, is the simple reality of death.
Lelouch: I see. Then that reality is all that remains for you as well. I, Lelouch vi Britannia, command you. All of you: Die!
Britannian intelligence officer: It--! It can't be!
[the entire Britannian black-ops force is overcome by Lelouch's Geass]
Britannian black-ops soldiers: [in unison] Yes, Your Highness!
[the black-ops soldiers all point their rifles and pistols at each other, while the intelligence officer puts his pistol to his neck as he laughs madly; Lelouch looks on as the soldiers all commit suicide]
Lelouch: [thinking] Ever since that day, my heart simply couldn't accept it. This fake life I was never able to fit into, all the time that was lost, these false memories planted in me, giving me a life as one of the herd, and yet…the truth continues to guide me toward itself. That's right! It wasn't me who was wrong! It was the world!
[the Guren Mk-II and Urabe's Gekka smash through the room and land before Lelouch, facing him]
Lelouch: [aloud] The world has to change, so I will change it.
Urabe: [via his Gekka's loudspeakers] We've been waiting for you, Master Zero. Please, give us your orders.
Lelouch: Very well! Because, after all, I am Zero, the one who will crush the world…and the one who will recreate the world anew!

Plan For Independent Japan

[a lone Sutherland encounters Lelouch at the massacre site of the Britannian black-ops soldiers]
Britannian pilot: What are you doing there? That's a student uniform, isn't it?
Lelouch: Oh! You're a soldier! Thank goodness! We need to help this man at once!
[the Sutherland pilot sees Lelouch kneeling next to the dead Britannian intelligence officer]
Britannian pilot: Office of Secret Intelligence? What are the emperor's personal agents doing here?
[the Sutherland pilot deactivates his Knightmare and disembarks]
Lelouch: [thinking] Good. These reports are accurate. Calares's forces don't know about me, so I can use the data in this journal.
Britannian pilot: There's only one survivor?
Lelouch: [aloud] Yes. Just you.
Britannian pilot: What?
Lelouch: [gets up] That's right. [uncovers his left eye, revealing his permanently active Geass] Now: Give me your Knightmare.
Britannian pilot: [is overcome by Geass] I understand. The ID code is QR5YK1D6. [gives his key to Lelouch]
Lelouch: [takes the key] Thank you.
[C.C. emerges from her hiding spot behind a nonfunctional Sutherland]
C.C.: Even though you need direct eye contact, are those theatrics necessary?
Lelouch: I don't need comments from an immortal witch.

[Kallen, in the Guren Mk-II, ambushes a Britannian Sutherland]
Kallen: Let me see you burst, Britannian!

[Emperor Charles has introduced Suzaku to the Sword of Akasha]
Suzaku: This place… Is it a shrine?
Charles: No, it's not. This is… This is a weapon for destroying God.

[Kallen has just appeared before Lelouch and is pointing a gun at him]
Lelouch: You who abandoned Zero at Kamine Island, what do you want to tell me?
Kallen: Lelouch. You were deceiving me right from the very beginning.
Lelouch: About Zero being your classmate, or about my Geass power? Which one has offended you?
Kallen: Both of them. Tell me this: Did you use your Geass on me like you did the others? Did you twist my mind and my heart and make me follow you? [Lelouch laughs derisively] Lelouch!
Lelouch: Your mind and your heart are yours alone, as was your loyalty and admiration for Zero.
[Lelouch starts walking towards Kallen]
Kallen: Don't move!
Lelouch: [continues approaching Kallen] Kallen, you should be proud of what you did. You decided. You made the choice. You chose… [takes Kallen's gun away from her] …Zero. [Kallen backs away from Lelouch] You don't believe me?
Kallen: [hesitating] I wanted to believe, so much that I'd become a slave.
Lelouch: I see.
Kallen: But… [regains her composure] …The one I believe in is Zero! Just him! It's not you, Lelouch!
Lelouch: Well, fine with me. [notes Kallen's Playboy Bunny attire and the Knightmare Frame key stuck in her cleavage] By the way, are you ever going to change out of those clothes?
[Kallen, taken by surprise, turns away from Lelouch and tries to cover her breasts]
Kallen: Don't look at me, you pervert!
Lelouch: [playfully] Oh, is that the way you talk to Zero now?
Kallen: [indignant] I'm saying it to you, Lelouch!

[the Knights of the Round are watching Zero's broadcast]
Gino Weinberg: Come on, Zero's dead, isn't he?
Suzaku: Yes.
Gino: So, this guy's a fake. And whoever he is, if we just go over there and storm the consulate…
Suzaku: Then we'd be breaking our treaty with them, risking an international incident.
Gino: He's saying that he's Zero, and Zero killed our royals. That gives this equal status with the E.U. war.
Anya Alstreim: It's a slippery slope either way.

[Zero has just declared that the room of the Chinese Federation consulate he's in will be the first dominion of the reformed United States of Japan]
Rakshata: [laughs hysterically] A nation consisting of just one room? That man's as amusing as ever.

[Xingke is greeted by the Vincent at the entrance of the Chinese Federation consulate]
Xingke: If you are Britannian, you have already been asked to leave. Or, are you one of Zero's followers?
[Rolo, the pilot of the Vincent, emerges from its cockpit]
Rolo Lamperouge: I'm not sure. Which am I?
Xingke: I'm not terribly fond of riddles.
Rolo: Yes. I'm exactly the same way myself. What I want to know is the truth. That's why I came here to kill Zero.
(Inside the Britannian throne room)
Lelouch: He brought me before the Britannian emperor.
Charles: The former seventeenth heir to the imperial throne, Lelouch vi Britannia. It been a long time, hasn't it, my errant son?
Lelouch: How dare you!
Suzaku: [to Lelouch] You won't use your Geass. [to the emperor] Your Majesty, I have a request. Please, sire, allow me to join the Knights of the Round, the twelve strongest knights of the Britannian Empire.
Charles: As a reward for capturing Zero, is that it?
Lelouch: You!
Suzaku: I told you before, Lelouch, that I was going to change this world from the inside.
Lelouch: Even if it means selling out your friends?!
Suzaku: That's right.
Charles: Very well, I like the answer you just gave him.
(Charles rising from the throne)
Charles: Now, then. As a Knight of the Round, I order you: Cover up Zero's left eye.
(Suzaku lifts up Lelouch's head and covers his left eye)
Suzaku: Yes, Your Majesty.
Charles: My unworthy son, who raised the banner of rebellion, although he was a prince. Still, there's another way we can make use of him.
Lelouch: What?!
(Charles' Geass activates as two Geass sigils light up in both of his eyes)
Charles: I will rewrite your memory, about being Zero, about the death of your mother, about the very existence of Nunnally.
Lelouch: No, Geass?!
Charles: You'll remember none of it, you'll just be insignificant.
Lelouch: No, stop! You're stealing of what's most precious to me again! First my mother and now you're taking Nunnally!
Charles: Charles zi Britannia engraves into you...
Lelouch: Stop it!
Charles: ...false memories of a false life!
(Lelouch screams as his father's Geass enter his mind and alter his memories)
Lelouch Lamperouge: AHHHHHHHHH!!!!

Imprisoned in Campus

[Kallen has just found out that Lelouch has swapped places with C.C. so he can escape back to Ashford Academy]
C.C.: What's the matter?
Kallen: When did you two switch places?
C.C.: Before the speech.
Kallen: But I--
C.C.: His voice was re-recorded. The moment "he" appeared, it was already me, just like in a magic show.
Kallen: [angry] You planned it on your own. We don't like it when you keep secrets from us.
C.C.: "We" don't like it? You mean, you don't like it, do you?

[Kallen has just come back from the showers and is barging in on a meeting between C.C., Gao Hai, and Xingke]
Kallen: C.C.! I was just thinking, wouldn't it have made more sense for you to have played the bunny girl?!
[Kallen realizes just what she's gotten herself into, then starts shrieking hysterically before running behind an opaque glass divider]
Gao Hai: Zero is...a girl?!
C.C.: Correct.
Kallen: [ducks out from behind the divider] I'M NOT ZERO!
C.C.: Oh, you let on too soon. You have no sense of humor, do you?
Kallen: Don't play around with Zero!
C.C.: [as Kallen's towel starts slipping] We can see you.
[Kallen shrieks again as she puts her towel back on and ducks behind the divider once more]

[Shirley and Lelouch are out shopping for a birthday present for Viletta Nu]
Shirley: [thinking] Is this...a date? If it's not...I'll make it one!

[Lelouch's attempt to ambush Rolo at Ashford Academy has backfired]
Rolo: Lelouch, now you and your demonic eye...will die.

(Guilford is at a Britannian territory where the Black Knights are about to be executed)

Guilford: Zero, can you hear me?! Listen closely, I am Lord Gilbert G.P. Guilford, Knight of Her Royal Highness, Cornelia li Britannia! Beginning tomorrow at 1500 hours, these 256 special Class-A felons, who are guilty of treason against the Empire, will all be executed for their crimes! Zero, if you value the lives of your people, then you will face me one on one in a honorable duel!

Counterattack at the Gallows

[Rolo reflects on how many people he's murdered over the years]
Rolo: [thinking] That's right. I can't remember how many people I've killed. Nobody counts the number of times they brush their teeth or eat a meal. Same with this. My Geass is suited to assassination. That's what I was told. So, I kill. There was no other place for me.

[two Office of Secret Intelligence officers are complaining to Viletta about Rolo's conduct]
OSI officer #1: Unacceptable! Did this kid kill Bruno in cold blood or not?!
OSI officer #2: And he was the fifth one!
OSI officer #1: All Victor did was touch the kid's locket, and the next thing--
Viletta: Victor had his own personality problems.
OSI officer #1: [slams his fist on the table] You don't kill a man because of that!
OSI officer #2: Now that there's this guy claiming to be Zero, we have to get our priorities straight and pull the team together.
OSI officer #1: That's exactly right, and I'm not teaming up with a freaking angel of death.
[Rolo has been overhearing the conversation the entire time]
Rolo: [thinking] Team? The mission is what's important, isn't it? Who cares about the team?

[Li Xingke is questioning Gao Hai about his dealings with Zero]
Xingke: Why did you recognize the USJ on your own without confirmation from the Vermillion Forbidden City? Even if you are one of the High Eunuchs, that was unforgivable. Just what are you planning to use Zero for?
Gao Hai: I've no intention to use Zero for anything! Zero must be pleased in every way!
Xingke: And the empress's feelings on this?
Gao Hai: [increasingly petulant] That little wench doesn't matter! The absolute law is that Zero shall bring happiness to me!
Xingke: Simpering traitor!
[Xingke rips Gao Hai's throat out with a knife on a string]
Xingke: The Crimson Dynasty is dead.

[Lelouch and Guilford are about to start their Knightmare Frame duel while C.C. and Xingke observe from the Chinese Federation consulate]
Lelouch: I have a question for you, Lord Guilford. What do you do when there is an evil you cannot defeat by just means? Do you stain your hands with evil to destroy evil, or do you remain steadfastly just and righteous even if it means surrendering to evil?
C.C.: In either case, evil remains.
Xingke: A paradox. Is it merely wordplay?
Guilford: In the name of Cornelia, I choose justice! [charges at Lelouch's Burai with his Gloucester]
Lelouch: I understand. In my case, I commit evil to destroy the greater evil!

[Kallen engages one of the Glaston Knights, Alfred Darlton, in the confusion surrounding the upheaval of the Britannian forces onto the Chinese Federation consulate grounds]
Kallen: Britannia, you're on notice! This is Japanese territory now!
Alfred: There is no Japan!
Kallen: Oh, really?! That's why I hate Britannians!
[Kallen charges towards Alfred and successfully parries his lance strike, seemingly leaving herself open for a point-blank rocket barrage from his Gloucester]
Alfred: Goodbye, Eleven ace!
[Alfred fires his rocket pods at point-blank range, only to have the attack blunted by the Guren Mk-II's Radiant Wave Surger]
Alfred: It's blocked at this close range?!
[Kallen clamps onto Alfred's Gloucester's head with the Radiant Wave Surger]
Kallen: This is the Radiant Wave Surger! The moment you came in close, my victory was assured! So long.
[Kallen activates the Radiant Wave Surger and fries Alfred and his Gloucester]

Knights of the Round

[Viletta has just been roped into dressing skimpily for a school event by the Swim Club]
Viletta: [thinking] So help me, Shirley, you'll die a thousand deaths for this!

[Lelouch has pushed C.C. towards a big bucket of tomatoes]

Shirley: Um, Lulu, are you alone?
Lelouch: [closes the bucket] Y-yeah.
Shirley: Aren't you just talking with somebody just now?
Lelouch: No, it's just you and me right now.
Shirley: [blushes] That's right... It's just Lulu and me... This may be my chance! Lulu, Do you want to... Eh?

[saw a big mascot covering Lelouch]

Lelouch: I-I'm sorry, Shirley... It's difficult to hear you from here! [to Kallen] What are you doing here?!
Kallen: I'm here to drag that pizza girl out!
Lelouch: She's in that big case of tomatoes. Carry the whole bucket and get it out from... WOAH!

[Shirley strongly pulled Lelouch out from the mascot and dropped him in the ground]

Shirley: [to the mascot] Who are you?! How dare you drag Lulu like that! Show yourself! [tries to pull the mascot's head away]
Kallen: If I did, my identity will be revealed!
Lelouch: [recovering from his fall] What a disgrace...

[Suzaku and Milly suddenly arrived]

Suzaku: Lelouch!
Milly: Have you seen Arthur?
Lelouch: No, I don't think I have...

[a rumbling sound came from the huge bucket--it was C.C. kicking the box]

Suzaku: Arthur must be in there!
Lelouch: Cats and tomatoes don't mix!

[the Ganymede suddenly arrives and carries the huge bucket up]

Suzaku: Wha--? Gino?
Gino: [piloting the Ganymede] That's right, Suzaku! I'll be making the biggest pizza in the world myself! See you! [Gino zooms away with the tomato bucket]
Lelouch: No, wait!! [runs after the Ganymede and Kallen and Shirley follows]
Gino: Now, it's shake time! [shakes the bucket, drowning C.C.]

[Arthur found himself in front of the Ganymede and ran away]

Suzaku: Was that... Arthur?
Milly: Oh, man, I think I'm going to rebuild the festival again.

[Lelouch runs after the Ganymede, but suddenly overtaken by Suzaku, then by Kallen, then by Shirley]

Lelouch: [stops and pants] This wasn't my kind of outfit...
Milly: [runs happily and overtakes Lelouch] Fire away!

[Lelouch groans and pants]

Surprise Attack Over the Pacific

[Anya gets the drop on Chiba and crushes her Gekka's head with the Mordred's hand]
Anya: Tag. You're dead.

[Anya tries to get Kallen to let go of the Mordred by firing a point-blank rocket barrage at the Guren Mk-II]
Anya: Dirty shoes.

The Abandoned Mask

[Lelouch remembers all of his friends including Nina, Kallen, Suzaku, and Nunally ]
Lelouch: Long time ago, Nunally, Suzaku, and I talked about something. We wondered what happiness would look like if we could give it a physical form. If I'm not mistaken, I think it was Suzaku that said that the shape of happiness might resemble glass. His reasoning made sense. He said that even though you don't usually notice it, its still definitely there. You merely have to change your point of view slightly, and then that glass will sparkle when it reflects the light. I doubt that anything else could argue its own existence more eloquently.

(In the Britannian Government Bureau)

Nunnally: How do you do everyone?. I am Nunnally vi Britannia of the royal family, 87th in line to the imperial throne. Due to the unfortunate untimely loss of Duke Calares recently, I'll shall assuming the viceroyship of Area 11 in his place.

One Million Miracles

C.C.: The one time a man never lies is when he makes a vow in his own heart.

Anya: Are you some kind of masochist?

[Lelouch, several Knights of the Round, and Lloyd Asplund are about to discuss the Special Administrative Zone of Japan]
Lloyd: Excuse me, I just wanted to ask you. Are you the same Zero as before, or are you a brand new one?
Lelouch: Zero's truth is not based on who is within. It is the actions that measure the man.
Lloyd: A-ha, a philosopher.

[Lelouch appears at the ceremonies that were for the opening of the Special Adminstrative Zone of Japan]
Lelouch: I do not wish to be in your debt. However, I have a question. What does it mean to Japanese? A nation.
Suzaku: What?
Lelouch: It is language, territory, bloodlines?
Suzaku: No, that is not it. It is in the heart.
Lelouch: Then we are in agreement. A feeling within, of belonging, diginity, pride, the culture is carried in the heart. You are Japanese no matter where you are.

A Bride in the Red Forbidden City

[Tamaki interrupts a conversation between Sugiyama, Minami, and Asahina about the Chinese Federation]
Tamaki: Asahina, don't you know? The High Eunuchs may be guys, but they got no jewels down below!

[Lelouch and Schneizel are playing chess; Lelouch decides to move his king]
Schneizel el Britannia: It is your king.
Lelouch: If the king does not lead, then how can he expect his subordinates to follow?
Schneizel: Impressive strategy. In fact, I will do the same.

Lelouch: What?! A political marriage?!
Kaguya: Yes. I've received an invitation to the wedding from the Sumeragi conglomerate. The bride is to be the empress, icon of the Chinese Federation. I'm her good friend and she wants me to attend.
Tohdoh: And the groom is to be the First Prince of Britannia.
Rakshata: That one they call Odysseus.

Annoucer: Annoucing the arrival of the Prime Minister of the Holy Britannian Empire, Second Prince Schneizel!

(Nina was about to attack Zero with a knife but she is stopped by Suzaku)

Nina: ZERO! Princess Euphemia will be AVENGED!!!
Suzaku: (holding her arm) Stop it, Nina! Drop the knife!
Nina: Aah!! Why are you stopping me? You all people should've understand since you were Princess Euphemia's knight!
Suzaku: That's right. But why...?
Nina: You were just an Eleven after all! I give you... (Kallen stopped Nina before she's about to kill Zero) Why, Kallen? You're half-Britannian and yet you choose to protect that monster!
Kallen: No, that's incorrect. I'm Japanese, Nina.
Nina: No, you're not. You're an Eleven! You're an Eleven and you pretended to be my FRIEND?!! GIVE HER BACK TO ME!!! GIVE BACK PRINCESS EUPHEMIA!!! I NEEDED HER, SHE WAS A GODDESS TO ME!!!

(Zero, Kaguya, and Kallen are surrounded by guards)

Empress Tianzi: Kaguya!
Xia Wang: Well, our wedding present has arrived on its own accord. My, this worked out wonderfully.
Tianzi: You're giving them Kaguya too?!
Zhao Hao: Put that girl out of your mind, her crimes warrant of the death penalty.
Tianzi: No you can't! That's wrong! This isn't Britannia!
Xia Wang: Your Majesty, the Black Knights are the ones who killed Gao Hai. Please don't get involved and leave the politics to us. Isn't that what you always done? Let's us handle things our way.
Tianzi: But... She's a friend.
Schneizel: Can we please stop this quarreling now? Today's the day of celebration, it is not?
Cai Lishi: But, sir...
Schneizel: Miss Sumeragi, would you refrain of having Zero accompanying me to the wedding tomorrow?
Kaguya Sumeragi: I suppose... I don't have much of a choice, do I?
Cai Lishi: If that is the wish of the Prime Minister of Britannia. Then, withdraw!

(Cai Lishi orders the guards to withdraw)

Zero: So Schneizel, you appeared right before me. (Suzaku is protecting Prince Schneizel) Hmph, as watchful as ever I see.
Kaguya: Suzaku Kururugi, do you remember me? We're cousins you and I.
Suzaku: Of course, I do.
Kaguya: We're the last remaining survivors of the Six Houses of Kyoto, aren't we?
Suzaku: Taizō Kirihara and the others supported terrorists. Nothing could've stay their executions.
Kaguya: But this is different. Cousin, did you forget that Master Zero once saved your life. Do you plan to execute someone you own your life to?
Suzaku: There's no comparison.
Kaguya: Oh, how sad! It's a good thing we're not able to kill anybody nearly of the words we say.
Zero: Prince Schneizel, would you care for a game of chess?
Schneizel: Chess?
Zero: If I win, I like to have Sir Kururugi.
Suzaku: Huh?
Kallen: What?
Zero: I want to give him to you, Lady Kaguya.
Kaguya Sumeragi: Oh! How it will be a absolutely marvelous present!
Zero: Enjoy your anticipation of it. (Thinking) If I can get Suzaku out of here, I can use my Geass on all the others. A checkmate that will turn everything around.
Schneizel: I'll agreed to you on terms. However, If you lose, I want you to remove your mask and show your face.
Zero: Agreed.
Schneizel: What a fine evening of entertainment this has turned into.

When the Shen Hu Wins Glory

[the Black Knights have blundered into a trap laid by Xingke and are now fighting a losing battle against Chinese Federation forces]
Lelouch: You've earned your victory, Xingke. I should have killed you first. You're as good a tactician as I am, and as strong a warrior as Suzaku. One could say that the heavens blessed you twice.
[cut to Zhou Xianglin, on the bridge of the Chinese Federation mobile command post]
Zhou Xianglin: Yes, but the heavens didn't give him enough time to live.

Power of Passion

C.C.: The little devil grows up, huh?
Lelouch: And you're still a witch.

[Gino Weinberg, now a student at Ashford Academy, has just introduced himself to Lelouch]
Gino: I am really looking forward to this… [lengthy pause] …old man[pats Lelouch on the back].

Lelouch: The human heart is the source of all our power [...] We fight with the power of our hearts.

Nina: A single shot from the Mordred's Stark Hadron cannon would demolish the Mausoleum, wouldn't it?
Lloyd : Well, yes. If you just want to crush them.
Kanon Maldini: And the moment we did that they'd say we killed their empress. We have to let the High Eunuchs make that last mortal blow.
Zhao Hao: So, you admit you're outmatched. Well, we won't accept your surrender. It's too late now.
Lelouch: You insist on fighting? Even though your own empress will die in the attack?
Zhao Hao: The empress is merely a system. There are plenty of others to replace her.
Cheng Zhong: So you can't use her as a bargaining chip.
Lelouch: But you use her to gain noble titles in the Britannian court.
Zhao Hao: You have sharp ears, don't you? A cheap price to pay for power.
Lelouch: Cheap? A phony treaty that gives China's land to a foreign nation?
Xia Wang: Land is nothing but dirt, after all.
Zhao Hao: Correct. We're Britannian noblemen now. That's what counts.
Lelouch: And what about the common people you sworn to protect?
Zhao Hao: Zero, when you walk down the street, do you worry about stepping on the ants?
Cheng Zhong: You throw away paper that clings to your bottom, don't you? It's the same thing.
Lelouch: You sell out your country, abandon your empress, betray your own people, and all for what?
Xia Wang: An idealist. I never thought you were so naïve, Zero.
Zhao Hao: Indeed! Masters and commoners will always breed.
Cheng Zhong: Like insects!
Futaba Sumeragi: Radiant shield generators 2 and 5 are offline!
Ohgi: That leaves the deck exposed!
Tianzi: Stop it!
Kaguya: Your Majesty!
Lelouch: Noblemen, you're bureaucrats, paper pushers who know nothing about noblesse oblige!
Tianzi: Please stop it! You have to stop all this fighting!

Xingke: Someone do it - I don't care who! But please, SOMEONE SAVE HER!!.
Lelouch: Very well, I understand. Your wish is granted. Deploys the Shinkirō and activates its shield, protecting the Empress and Xingke

Lelouch: How pathetic, Xingke. You were betrayed by your own countrymen. And you couldn't even save one little girl. Do you get it now? You need me. I'm the only ally you can rely on.
Xingke: I'll never be subordinate to you, Zero!
Lelouch Lamperouge: Subordinate? No. You have the potential to lead your entire nation. They need deliverance. Your empress, and all the helpless people of the Chinese Federation. They're crying out for it.
Xingke: Do you think your Knightmare can turn the tide of this battle?
Lelouch: Not at all. The tide of war is determined by strategy, not tactics.
Soldier: Emergency alert! Riots have broken out in Shanghai!
Xia Wang: Street riots?
Shanghai Citizen 1: Damn you!
Shanghai Citizen 2: You'll pay for this!
Xia Wang: They are rioting?! In Shanghai?!
Soldier: It's not just Shanghai. Suzhou, Beijing, Burma, Jakarta, Islamabad, and there are 14 other areas we're still confirming. People are rising up everywhere.
Nina: Rebellions breaking out simultaneously?
Cécile: Yes. They're broadcasting the communication between Zero and the High Eunuchs.
Kanon: Communication? So they were conspiring without informing us.
Schneizel: Can you run it?
Cécile: Yes.
Zhao Hao: The empress is merely a system. There are plenty of others to replace her.
Lelouch: And what about the common people you sworn to protect?
Zhao Hao: Zero, when you walk down the street, do you worry about stepping on the ants?
Xia Wang: Indeed! Masters and commoners will always breed.
Cheng Zhong: Like insects!
Lelouch: Thanks to the empress, the High Eunuchs are now firmly cast as the villains.
Xingke: You mean, you planned on their betrayal?
Kanon: He couldn't have caused this. It's happening too fast.
Schneizel: Unless he made use of someone else's plan already in place.
Lelouch: Correct. I've stolen other strategy of yours as well. We start a coup and the people rise up.
Tohdoh: In other words, we're not trapped here without reinforcements!
Diethard: We do have reinforcements. The starving masses of this land are the backup we needed!
Chiba: Then we could take offensive and strike!
Anya: The Black Knights are to be annihilated.
C.C.: She's just as tough as I expected. No!
Anya: What is this?
C.C.: So that's what you did.
Chiba: What's that?
Asahina: Now's our chance!
Suzaku: Anya, no!
Gino: This is the Tristan. I'm moving in to cover the Mordred.
Tamaki: Push them back now!
Platoon Leader 1: Fools! Deploying their ground forces at this point in the battle.
Platoon Leader 2: If we bomb them from the air, we'll destroy them.
Schneizel: No, we're withdrawing. Nations aren't dirt, and they're not systems. They're people. The High Eunuchs have lost the people's support. They're no longer qualified to join us as representatives of the Chinese Federation.
Suzaku: Yes, your highness.
Futaba: The Avalon and the Knights of the Round are withdrawing.
Lelouch: Yes, I thought that's what you do, brother. However...
Schneizel: What do you think the emperor would've done, Kanon? Forget it. I was just musing a bit.
Xingke: So, Prince Schneizel has abandoned you. So much for your titles.
Zhao Hao: Don't hurt us! We'll give up our power, whatever you want!
Xingke: Still worried about your own skin?!
[Xingke kills and beheads all the Eunuchs with his sword]

Love Attack!

[en route to the OSI command post, Lelouch is ambushed by a girl named Miya, who steals his hat]
Miya: I did it! Now I get to be Lelouch's girlfriend!
Lelouch: Of course. [turns around to face Miya] Miya, is it?
Miya: What's up, honeybunch?
Lelouch: [removes his contact lens to reveal his active Geass sigil] Would you mind very much giving me that hat back?
Miya: [is overcome by Geass] Okay!

Miya: Now I'm more confused than usual. What am I doing here?

[Lelouch is overseeing Sayoko's actions from the OSI's underground command post]
Lelouch: Sayoko, watch what you have me say, or I'll come off as being kind of mental.

[Rivalz is prowling the campus on his motorcycle looking for Lelouch so he can deliver him to Milly]
Rivalz: Prez, if Lelouch is who you want, then I, Rivalz Cardemonde, will give you what you want! My best friend in the world!
[Rivalz spots the Mordred flying overhead]
Rivalz: Whoa, that can't be for real!
Anya: It is.

[Anya has just smashed through the library wall with the Mordred's fist, and Viletta is trying to talk her down]
Viletta: Knight of Six, milady! This is an operations area of the OSI! Please, withdraw your Knightmare at once!
Anya: This is wrong?
Viletta: Yes, very wrong!
Anya: Wrong.

[Gino tries to explain the deployment of the Mordred at Ashford Academy to the Knight Police]
Gino: This is a school for commoners. Things like this happen all the time.

The Assassin from the Past

Bartley: They say they're going to kill God.
Cornelia: God?
Bartley: I thought they were speaking metaphorically. But now, at the very least, these people believe what they're saying!
Cornelia: Ridiculous! To believe in God... there's no such being!
V.V.: That's right. (Both Bartley and Cornelia turn to see V.V.) Knowing goddesses and long bearded white men in white gowns in kingdoms and clouds. No, not that sort of god-- (Cornelia throws a knife into V.V.'s forehead, knocking him to the ground.)
Bartley: (shocked) Princess Cornelia!
Cornelia: Who knows what type of Geass he controls? You must never let your guard down, even for a child!
V.V.: (still alive) Yes, that's correct. (stands up) Cornelia, you do left you're reputation, don't you? (He then takes the knife out of his forehead.) As your uncle, I'm very proud of you.
Cornelia: (shocked) My what?
V.V.: We made a solemn vow. If there was ever a God that made men fight each other. We must kill him and his divine rule.

Lelouch Lamperouge: Right. I've sent Jeremiah on ahead. He'll take care of any obstacles in the way. Don't try to fight him. He just came over to our side.
[He runs up the escalator, only to stop as he notices someone lying on the ground in the smoke. Immediately worried, he quickly runs over and gasps in terror when he sees who it is. Shirley Fenette is lying on the ground with a heavy amount of blood leaking from her body, a gunshot wound in her chest being the source of the bleeding.]
Lelouch: [horrified] Shirley!
[He kneels down to her, overlooking her mortal wound.]
Lelouch: Shirley, who did this to you?
Shirley: [voice weak, smiling] Lulu... I'm glad we can talk at the very end.
Lelouch: Don't say that. It's not the end. [takes out his cellphone] I'll call a doctor, so just--
[Shirley puts her hand on Lelouch's cellphone to stop him.]
Shirley: Ever since my memories have come back, I've been feeling so very afraid. A teacher who wasn't a teacher. Friends who don't have memories to share. Everyone... was just... lying. It felt as though the whole world was spying on me. That's the world you've been fighting all by yourself, isn't it? All alone. So that's why I... why I wanted to be someone who would at least be truthful to you.
Lelouch: Shirley...
Shirley: Lulu... I love you. Even knowing how you caught my father in all this... I simply couldn't hate you. Even though you made me forget everything, I still fell in love with you. [She tightens her grip on Lelouch's hand.] Even though my memories were tampered with, I kept falling in love... with you all over again.
[As her life peters out, her eyes begin to close. Lelouch, in a moment of grief-stricken panic, immediately removes the contact over his Geass eye.]
Lelouch: [shouting] NO, SHIRLEY! YOU CAN'T DIE!
[He activates his Geass, attempting to will her into finding the strength to survive. While it kicks in, she ultimately lacks the physical strength to carry out the command. In addition, Shirley manages to overcome it, just to continue speaking to Lelouch.]
Shirley: No matter how many times I'm reborn... [More blood has started pouring up from the hole in her chest.] ...I'll keep falling in love with you, Lulu. [Her blood is leaking onto the floor, to Lelouch's feet.] I suppose that it's simply fate.
Lelouch: [desperate] No, don't die! [He uses his Geass yet again.] I ORDER YOU NOT TO DIE!
[Once again, the Geass cannot will her into surviving. Shirley's eyes start to fill with tears.]
Shirley: So is that okay, then, Lulu? [Tears are forming in Lelouch's eyes.] And as I'm reborn... I'll fall in love with you over and over. [Shirley's eyes continue to close.] I'll keep... falling... in love... with... y...
[Her voice giving out, Shirley closes her eyes and dies. Her hand falls limp into the pool of her own blood. Lelouch twitches, eyes wide and brimming over with tears.]
Lelouch: [shocked, disbelieving] Shirley...? Shirley!
[He stares in denial at her corpse with tears pouring from his eyes, shaking in grief... and he screams in despair.]

Geass Hunt

Jeremiah: That machine was made so that I could prove my loyalty.
V.V.: Jeremiah, I thought that you had a personal grudge against Zero.
Jeremiah: I did because I thought he was a mere commoner preventing me from serving the royal family, but now I know who he is, and I know that by serving him, I am serving MY LADY MARIANNE!
[Lelouch and Cornelia prepare to strike the final blow on V.V.'s Siegfried .]
Cornelia: Now you will suffer for what you did to Euphie…
Lelouch: …the source…
Lelouch & Cornelia: (In unison) …of Geass!

C's World


[In C's World, the emperor and Lelouch finally meet face to face]

Charles: It's been a long time, Lelouch. My prodigal son.
Lelouch: Answer my question about eight years ago! Why you didn't tried to protect Mother? You knew the others were plotting against her! You know everything!
Charles: People are not equal!
Lelouch: What?
Charles: You have a unique form of Geass! A power that no one else possesses! Use it, to get the answer from me!
Lelouch: [Thinking] He's baiting me, trying to get me to use my Geass on him. But... If I look into his eyes, then he'll look into mine. His Geass requires eye contact just like mine does. So the moment I look, his Geass will take control of me and he'll alter my memories. What will I do?
Charles: What's wrong? Are you not my son, a prince of Britannia?
Lelouch: [activating his Geass] I have no time to make the wrong choice!

[Ohgi is waiting when finally he meets Villetta]

Ohgi: Chigusa.
Villetta: That was the name you called me when I lost my memory. What's my real name?

[She points her gun at Ohgi]

Ohgi: Villetta. But that doesn't change anything.
Villetta: I am a Britannian baroness. No matter what the reason, if I don't erase the disgrace of my having loved an Eleven, I won't be able to live in this world.
Ohgi: I suppose not. If I must die, I just wish it could've been in Japan.
Villetta: You came here knowing I was going to kill you?
Ohgi: Everybody dies. I wanted to choose the time.
Villetta: You can also choose to kill me if you want. Tell me, why did a terrorist save a Britannian in the first place?
Ohgi: In the beginning, I thought I could get information from you about Zero. I tricked you, kept you under surveillance. But while we lived together, I-
Villetta: I'm your sworn enemy!
Ohgi: But I still love you!
Villetta: Are you insane?!
Ohgi: I must be. You are the enemy. But I can't stop myself from loving you!
Villetta: [sobbing] I wish I've never set eyes on you-

[Suddenly Sayoko appears]

Ohgi: From the Intelligence?

[Lelouch and Charles are in C's World]

Lelouch: What is Geass? I wan't the truth.
Charles: How strange. A child who's wrapped himself in lies desires the truth from others.
Lelouch: What?
Charles: The false name and false mask of Zero - what has it gotten you?
Lelouch: Everything! It's gotten me all of the things that ordinary people can never obtain. Followers. Territory.
Charles: You lost Euphemia. Suzaku and Nunally are also lost to your lies.
Lelouch: Shut up! I did what I had to do. People lie to survive. No one is blameless.
Charles: You want others to know your true self, yet you only show them a false face. How can anyone know you if you don’t reveal yourself? If you hide behind masks, you are afraid that they’ll find out who you really are.
Lelouch: No!
Charles: In the end, your lies serve no purpose because you are me and I am you. All else is illusion. Though there are worlds without end, there is but one being; in the past, in the future, and now, there is only one.
Lelouch: One? What are you saying?

[C.C. appears]

C.C.: Charles. Play time is over now. There's nothing in it for me now, no values in the games anymore.
Lelouch: C.C.?
C.C.: You don't have to cajole him like this to get me here. I already exist in this realm.
Charles: True enough, C.C. In that case, I shall grant your wish.
Lelouch: You know what C.C.'s wish is?
C.C.: Lelouch, it's time you know the conditions of our contract and what I desire. My wish is to die; to end my existence in all worlds forever.
Lelouch: But why? Why would you want to die?
C.C.: In the final stage of Geass, the user attains the position of the one who granted them the power. Thus, you have gained the power to kill me.
Lelouch: Kill you? C.C...
C.C.: Of all those I have made contracts with, none has ever reached that point. But now there's Charles. He has done it.
Lelouch: You mean... You made the contract with me so you could cease to exist?
C.C.: Correct.
Lelouch: But why would you want to die?
C.C.: It's providence; a boundary. Only when it's final can we call it life.
Lelouch: That's wrong! We call it life because we feel it.
C.C.: Same thing. There is no life unless there is death.
Lelouch: That's just word play, it's not real!
C.C.: People die, that's real.
Lelouch: Why are we born at all? What's the purpose of it? The meaning?
C.C.: You know the answer. Those things are all just illusions.
Lelouch: No! Living just to die is too sad.
C.C.: Without death, all we have are just random events. Accumulation. You can't call that life. If you have a reason for living, then you have to kill me. Do that and you'll be Charles' equal. You'll finally be able to beat him. So fare thee well, Lelouch. You're too kind to end our contract.
Lelouch: Wait! You're - Aaahhh!

[Lelouch falls] [Charles grins]

United Federation of Nations Resolution Number One

[Lelouch is trying to deal with C.C.'s amnesia]
C.C: What should I be doing now?
Lelouch: Let's see now. Sing me a song while hopping on one foot and wearing your clothes inside-out.

[Suzaku attempts to apologize to Kallen for his mistreatment of her]
Suzaku: I'm sorry!
[Kallen assaults Suzaku, her words punctuated by punches and slaps]
Kallen: What the hell does that mean?! There's no need to apologize! It's either right or wrong! You think you can flip on the good-guy routine whenever you like?! Not when I'm this pissed off! Kallen Kōzuki's a soldier, not a sideshow! [scoffs at Suzaku as she sits back down] I'm mostly pissed off because you're not resisting. [pauses for a moment as Suzaku groans in agony] There. Put me to death. An inmate assaulting a Knight of the Round should be good reason enough for anyone.
Suzaku: No, I won't, because I'm the one who did wrong.
Kallen: [mockingly] "No, I won't." I HATE YOU!

Anya: Memories that people have are always fake. No point in believing in them.

[Luciano Bradley, the Knight of Ten, introduces himself to Suzaku]
Luciano Bradley: What do people value most, Sir Kururugi the traitor? Their own life, of course.

[Luciano interrupts a conversation between Nunnally and Kallen]
Nunnally: I don't believe I gave you permission to enter this area, Sir Bradley.
Luciano: My apologies, Your Highness.
Kallen: Well, so you're the Vampire of Britannia.
Luciano: Yes. It's a shame we're not on a battlefield, or I could savor your blood as well.
Kallen: Pity. So, you here to finish off the hostage?
Luciano: Not so. Hostages have only one value I care for. It seems to hold dear to life, and when alive, one can do anything he has a whim for…to its body.

[Lloyd, Cécile, Nina, Suzaku, and Anya are discussing plans for an impending attack on Tokyo]
Cécile: Huh? Mount the F.L.E.I.J.A. onto the Lancelot?
Lloyd: Well, the intention was for Suzaku to pilot the Guren, but…
Suzaku: [surprised] The Guren?
Cécile: Sorry, he's right. I got so carried away I forgot. It's just, Lloyd and I got so wrapped up in our little hobby that we--
Suzaku: Hobby?
Lloyd: Rakshata's mechanisms are quite easy to tinker with. Now it's so souped up it can't be flown! End result, you're our little devicer again!
Nina: Excuse me, Professor Lloyd? Now that you've mentioned the Lancelot--
Lloyd: You wouldn't mix up a strategic weapon with a tactical one, would you?
Nina: I have thought it through. Any matter caught in the primary effect field will be annihilated by the F.L.E.I.J.A.'s rapid sphere collapse.
Cécile: Hold on! You want Suzaku to fire a weapon like that?!
Anya: He'll kill his own people. A massacre.
Nina: Suzaku, you don't consider yourself an Eleven anymore, right? That's why I want to entrust the F.L.E.I.J.A. to you.
Suzaku: You'd give me…that burden?
Nina: You were Princess Euphemia's knight, so naturally.
Lloyd: [spins in a circle before facing Nina] Nina, darling, a fine quandary. Might just kill Suzaku…and take you along as well.

[Lelouch, shaken significantly by the reappearance of Emperor Charles, returns to his quarters, where C.C. attempts to offer him one last slice of pizza]
C.C.: Uh, Master, I kept this last piece so you could have it. You left without having breakfast and must be hungry. So, please, if you--
Lelouch: BE QUIET!
[Lelouch attacks C.C. in a fit of rage, shattering the plate she's carrying and sending her to the floor; he then relents as he sees her bleeding from a large cut on her finger]
Lelouch: Hey--
C.C.: [starts cowering, thinking that Lelouch is going to start beating her] Forgive me, Master! I'll clean it up at once!
Lelouch: No! Leave it there! [starts attending to C.C.'s wound] Be careful now. You're bleeding.
C.C.: No, it's fine. I'm okay. I get cut up all the time.
Lelouch: [thinking] All the time?
C.C.: Bleeding feels even better when it's cold. It feels warm on your outside. It stings a bit, but only on the outside, and that's always better than hurt on your inside. It's just, any kind of warmth helps make you try to keep going. [Lelouch is visibly shivering as he holds C.C.'s hand] Oh, lookit, Master, you're shaking. Are you cold now?
Lelouch: Uh, yeah, maybe. Maybe I am. [C.C. starts holding Lelouch's hand as well] And the hurt on the inside…how's it healed?
C.C.: You just think of… [pauses as she tries to think] …some friends.
Lelouch: Huh?
C.C.: I've never actually had one. Not like families. That always comes and goes. I mean, someone special who stands beside you. At least, I guess that's what I've heard that friends do.
Lelouch: Yes, they do.
C.C.: I'm right? A friend will stand by your side?
Lelouch: Exactly right. A friend is always there.

The Taste of Dirt

Luciano: Irrelevant. Killing is all one should do on the battlefield!

[Lelouch is meeting Suzaku in the Kururugi Shrine asking for his help to protect Nunnally.]
Suzaku: I need to know. Did you use your Geass power on Euphy? Be honest.
Lelouch: Yes.
Suzaku: You caused her to massacre the Japanese?
Lelouch: I ordered her to do it.
Suzaku: Why would you use your Geass power like that?! [He doesn't answer] Answer me!
Lelouch: To motivate the Japanese people. If the Specially Administrated Zone of Japan had been established, the Black Knights would have collapsed.
Suzaku: And Shirley's death?
Lelouch: Also my fault.
Suzaku: You aren't even human, you know that? Shirley and Euphy...Were both of them nothing more than pawns for your ambitions?
Lelouch: Yes, that's right. So all the sin is mine to shoulder. My little sister had nothing to do with it!
Suzaku: Why you coward! How could you use Nunnaly like that?! [Lelouch gets down on his legs.]
Lelouch: Suzaku, I'm sorry. For the first time in my life, I'm bowing down to another person. Shame and honor mean nothing to me. All I want is this, and my Geass be damned! Just please, you have to save Nunnaly! I beg of-- [Suzaku's shoe steps on Lelouch's head, which causes him to fall to the ground with Suzaku keeping him down.]
Suzaku: After everything you've done, you really think this is sufficient? You believe some bowing and begging is enough for me to forgive you?!
Lelouch: No, of course I don't, but it's all I got! I have nothing else left to offer! You're the only person in the world who can save my sister now!
Suzaku: So you believe...I'll just ignore the past and forgive you? That everyone is going to forgive you?! [He puts more pressure on Lelouch's head.] The people you've tricked...The people who've died thanks to you...And what about Euphy?! You wanna apologize?! Then bring Euphy back to life! Right now! I wanna see you save the world with all your malice! Right now! You're Zero, the miracle worker, aren't you?!
Lelouch: I've preformed no miracles! It's all been calculation and stage production. The mass they call Zero is a symbol! Just a device that lets me tell lies!
Suzaku: Device?! You don't really expect me to believe that excuse, do you?! [Suzaku takes his shoe off Lelouch and picks him up by his shoulders.] If you're going to tell a lie, then keep it up 'til the very end!
Lelouch: I can't go back to the past! There's not a choice! You know I can't undo what's already been done!
Suzaku: Lelouch! YOU WILL ANSWER ME! [He throws Lelouch to the ground.] Why did you use your Geass on me to make me wanna live?! WHY?! The Geass you used on me that drives me to live has corrupted my convictions! Why would you put such a curse on me?!
Lelouch: I only did it because I wanted to survive.
Suzaku: Then why did you save me when I was accused of Prince Clovis' murder?
Lelouch: I wanted to make the Japanese trust me, that's all.
Suzaku: Why did you save the student council members from the hotel jacking?
Lelouch: Because I thought it presented an ideal for the Black Knights' debut.
Suzaku: [Thinking] The look in his eyes...I know that look...The look of torment that comes from bottling up a lie. That's why I joined the Britannian Army: for redemption. So that the tragedy wouldn't repeat itself. [Aloud] You're lying, aren't you? Lelouch, there's only one way to redeem yourself for yourself. Turn your falsehoods into the truth.
Lelouch: Huh?
Suzaku: You told the world a lie when you proclaimed you were a knight for justice. Why don't you live up to that lie by trying to become a true knight for justice. Then you'll have the lie going, to the very end.
Lelouch: But how? How can I do that?
Suzaku: By putting an end to this war. You are Zero. This job, only Zero can do it. It's within your power. Bring peace and happiness to the world. If you do that, I'll save Nunnally.
Lelouch: You will? You'll save her?
Suzaku: But we'll work together. One more time for her sake.
Lelouch: I'm grateful. The two of us together. We can accomplish anything. [Lelouch was about to grab Suzaku's hand, when a bullet stops them. After, several Knightmares surround them.]
Suzaku: Wha-What the...?
Claudio: Hold it right there, Zero!
Bart: We've already uncovered your true identity! [A group of Britannian soldiers surround Lelouch and Suzaku.]
Britannian Soldier #1: Are you all right, Sir Kururugi?
Britannian Soldier #2: Please, stay back!
Lelouch: Suzaku...[The Britannian soldiers point their guns at Lelouch while two others restrain him.] You set me up from the start?!
Suzaku: No, wait--! [Kanon puts his hand on Suzaku's shoulder.]
Kanon:You've done a great deed here, Sir Kururugi. Excellent work. You've managed to bring this war to an end.
Lelouch: I see...You planned to sell me out again...You betrayed me, Suzaku...YOU BETRAYED ME!!!

The Second Decisive Battle of Tokyo

[Jeremiah in the Sutherland Sieg attacks Suzaku's Lancelot Conquista, much to Suzaku's surprise.]
Suzaku: Jeremiah, is that you?!
Jeremiah: Suzaku Kururugi, I owe you a debt. I sympathize with you. I respect you. But in this situation… loyalty trumps all!
[Suzaku attempts to disengage from the Sutherland Sieg]
Suzaku: The Siegfried's--
Jeremiah: Take this! [fires a rocket barrage at the Lancelot Conquista] The storm of my LOYALTY!

[Gino Weinberg joins the fray above Tokyo, just in time to save Suzaku from Jeremiah]
Gino: No one can defeat a Knight of the Round. No one!
[Gino manages to score a hit on the Sutherland Sieg, freeing Suzaku in the process]
Suzaku: Gino, thank you.
Gino: Can't you look a bit happier when someone saves your life? [beat] Lord Jeremiah! So, what they said about Orange was true, huh?
Jeremiah: Orange, you say? [chuckles] That is the name of my loyalty!

[Anya Alstreim ambushes Lelouch and starts firing the Mordred's guns at the Shinkirō at point-blank range.]
Anya: Which one do you think is stronger, your shield or my Stark Hadron Cannon?

[Luciano Bradley gets ready to kill Lelouch.]
Luciano: Here's a question: What do people value most? Answer: Their life, of course!

[Luciano finds himself under attack by Shinichirō Tamaki and his Akatsuki squadron.]
Tamaki: Let Zero go! Or you'll have to deal with me, Shinichirō Tamaki, his best bud!
[Luciano fires a missile barrage from the Percival's shield, destroying the Akatsukis besieging him; Tamaki bails out.]
Tamaki: [frustrated] Damn it! This always happens to me!

[Lelouch attempts a sneak attack on Luciano by firing the Shinkirō's main gun at point-blank range, only to find himself at the end of the Percival's hand-mounted drill lance]
Luciano: Just what I was waiting for, Zero! To go into attack mode, you dropped your shield! Now I will take what you value most and blow it away!

[Lloyd is despairing over the theft of the Guren S.E.I.T.E.N.]
Lloyd: You thieves! That's mine, all mine!
Cécile: Oh, not quite! I did some of the upgrades, remember?
Lloyd: Oh, right, it's actually a collaboration. Oh, what am I talking about?! With a capable devicer, even at 60% output, that unit can cut the other Knightmares to ribbons!
[Meanwhile, Rakshata is indignant over Lloyd and Cécile's tampering with the original Guren Mk-II.]
Rakshata: That's the Earl of Pudding's work and Cécile's energy wings! How dare they, altering my Guren without my permission!
Ohgi: Still, now that we've got Kallen back in the combat zone…
Tohdoh: …it will even up the battle!

Britannian Officer: Sir Bradley, you have permission to destroy the Guren.
Luciano: Irrelevant! Killing is all one should do on the battlefield!

[Luciano and Kallen trade barbs while dueling over the skies of Tokyo in their respective Knightmares.]
Luciano: Eleven! Do you know the prime truth of the battlefield? Kill a man off the field, and you're a criminal, but kill him on it, and you're a big hero!
Kallen: So, the Vampire of Britannia wants to be a hero now, is that it?
Luciano: No, not at all. War allows me to officially take what people value most: Their lives!
Kallen: Some knight. You're barely a scoundrel!
[Kallen destroys the Percival's shield with a ranged Radiant Wave Surger blast; Luciano readies the Percival's drill lance in response and charges.]
Luciano: And now--!
Kallen: And now what? [shatters the Percival's drill lance with the Guren S.E.I.T.E.N.'s knife] That's not going to work.
Luciano: Ah, but now I've got you in close range.
[Luciano fires the Percival's head-mounted Slash Harken, only to have Kallen snag the cord in the Guren S.E.I.T.E.N.'s hand and then latch onto the Percival with the Radiant Wave Surger claw.]
Luciano: What?!
Kallen: Question: What do you value the most? Your own pitiful life!
Luciano: [livid] You think an Eleven can threaten me?!
Kallen: [quietly, under breath] Send a postcard.
[Kallen fries the Percival with the Radiant Wave Surger, with Luciano still inside.]
Luciano: [disbelieving] My life! My life is taken… by a lowly Eleven?! AAAGH!
[The Percival explodes, killing Luciano.]

[Kallen comes under attack by Suzaku while Gino duels a Geass-influenced Guilford]
Gino: Kallen. So, in the end, you chose the name "Kōzuki" over "Stadtfeld."
Kallen: That's right, which means you and I do battle once again. So, should I be happy or sad about that, Gino?
Gino: [chuckles] Why don't we just enjoy it?


[Lelouch, still in shock over Nunnally's death, goes psychotic upon spotting the locket attached to Rolo's cell phone and snatches it from his hands]
Lelouch: What are you doing with this?! It's Nunnally's! I wanted to give this locket to Nunnally, not to you! To Nunnally! You think you could ever replace Nunnally in my heart?! You're an IMPOSTER! [Lelouch tosses the cell phone to the ground; C.C. cowers in fear as Rolo sits there, despondent] Haven't you figured it out yet?! I hate you! I loathe you! I DESPISE YOU! I've been trying to kill you, but I keep MISSING THE CHANCE!
Rolo: [still hasn't figured it out yet, even with Lelouch telling it to his face] Big…brother?
Lelouch: GET OUT OF HERE! I never want to see your face again! I said, GET OUT!

Lloyd: You need to make a choice, Nina. Do you abandon science to preserve your heart, or abandon your heart and sacrifice yourself to science?
Nina: How can I do either? Did you make such a choice, Professor Lloyd?
Lloyd: I didn't have to. I'm a sociopath; I was born with an abandoned heart.

[Schneizel is holding a meeting with the Black Knights]

Schneizel: Now that I think about it, I never finished my match with Zero, did I?
Diethard: Zero won't be attending. Not until we have the details of the proposal.
Schneizel: Of course. I didn't expect him to show. He's not the type who consults with others. No, he keeps things to himself and holds people at a distance.
Diethard: That's strange. You talk about him as if you know him intimately.
Schneizel: More than any of you do. Zero is our younger brother. Cornelia's and my own.
Tamaki: What are you saying?
Schneizel: He is the former 11th royal prince of the Holy Britannian Empire: Lelouch vi Britannia. The man whom I both loved and feared more than any other.
Tohdoh: Impossible.
Tamaki: You're telling us that Zero's a Britannian prince?
Cornelia: Diethard, please. In all this time, you never figure that out? Even with all the information you were getting from Jeremiah and Villetta?
Diethard: You're wasting your time. You can't cause chaos here by spreading these irrelevant stories. It's not Zero's lineage that matters but rather his efforts and the miracles that he's performed for us.
Schneizel: But what if all those miracles he perform were actually tricks.
Diethard: Tricks.
Schneizel: Zero possesses a special power. It is known as Geass. It's the absolute power to compel anyone to obey him. You can think of it as extreme hypnosis.
Tohdoh: You're saying his miracles come from that power?
Tamaki: Are you trying to dis my man Zero? He's got brains and guts and he kicks Britannian butt! A prince with Geass power? Where is the proof of all this bul, huh?
Ohgi: I have the proof.
Tamaki: Ohgi?
Chiba: And Villetta?
Ohgi: What he saying is all true. Zero was a former Britannian prince named Lelouch. He controls people with his Geass power. A con man. Zero's been tricking us all along. Using us like pawns from the start.
Tamaki: You don't mean this, Ohgi.
Chiba: But if that's really true then...
Diethard: Then it doesn't matter. It doesn't erase a single thing that he's done for us. And if he really does have this Geass power, then doesn't that just help us? It's another weapon to use in our fight against Britannia.
Ohgi: Yes, that would make perfect sense if he only used it against our enemies.
Tamaki: What?
Chiba: Are you saying he used it on us?
Cornelia: Of course. He used Geass to control his own sister Euphemia. He made her slaughter the Elevens in the Special Zone.
Tamaki: You're lying! Zero is a knight for justice. He would never do something like...
Schneizel: We have evidence. [activates the tape recorder]
Suzaku: Did you use your Geass power on Euphie? Be honest.
Lelouch: Yes.
Suzaku: You caused her to massacre the Japanese?
Lelouch: I ordered her to do it.
Chiba: Then, that whole bloodbath was...
Cornelia: Euphie was just a girl. Zero was in control.
Tohdoh: So Zero slaughtered our people for his own ambitions?
Tamaki: That recording is fake!
Kanon: These are people in incidents that we suspect he manipulated with his Geass.
Tohdoh: Kusakabe... Even Major General Katase!

[The list of Geass victims like Guilford, Darlton, Shirley, Euphemia, and Suzaku revealed]

Chiba: I can't believe it.
Diethard: Clovis.
Villetta: He used it on me, too.
Ohgi: That explains why Gao Hai changed.
Chiba: And that explains why Jeremiah and the others became traitors.
Schneizel: His Geass might be controlling even Nina. There's no way to be certain about that. When you think about it, it's a terrifying prospect.
Chiba: You mean...?
Tamaki: We could be...?
Kanon: There's one more thing. We notified Zero about the F.L.E.I.J.A. warhead before the battle. We wanted to avoid using it. It's still in the Lancelot's communications record. However...
Tohdoh: He never told us anything about that.
Asahina: We can't trust commander Zero!
Tohdoh: Asahina...
Ohgi: I wanted to put my trust in Zero. I wanted to believe in him, but we mean nothing to him. We're just pawns.
Tamaki: Treating us like chumps. Damn! How could he do this to us?
Schneizel: Everyone. Zero is my brother. Will you please hand him over to me for justice?
Ohgi: On one condition.
Tamaki: Ohgi!
Cornelia: You think you're in a position to bargain over this?
Schneizel: Wait, let's hear it.
Ohgi: Our Japan, return it. We're betraying our comrade, so at least we deserve to regain Japan. Otherwise, I could never forgive myself.

Zero: Kallen, it's good you made it back. I'm sorry it took so long to get you out.
Kallen: Lelouch, listen, when I was imprisoned, I happened to talk to Nunnally. She stood up for me and she saved me.
Zero: I see.

[The Black Knights put Zero and Kallen at gunpoint]
Tohdoh: Surrender, Zero!
Chiba: How dare you try to run a con game on us?
Ohgi: We know everything about your Geass power!
[Lelouch, under the mask, is horrified about what they know]
Diethard: Zero, the renowned hero, died in battle before he could triumph, but his gallant life and daring deeds will continue to live on in myth and legend.
Zero: Is that the script you've written for me, Diethard?
Diethard: Actually, I wanted to film your brilliant campaign and glorious victory over Britannia, but I'm afraid that show's been permanently cancelled.
Lelouch: [thinking] What do I do? Knightmares are beyond my reach, but Ohgi and the others are defenseless. If I can use my Geass secretly...
Minami: Everybody trusted you, Zero.
Sugiyama: Inoue and Yoshida sacrifice their lives for you.
Kallen: Wait a minute! This is all one-sided! Look at how far we've come because of Zero. At least let him answer!
Tamaki: You're in the way, Kallen!
Sugiyama: Do you want to die with Zero?
Minami: Don't tell me he used his Geass on you, too?
Kallen: I need an answer, Lelouch. What do I mean to you? I have to know. If I could stay with you, I would. Please.
Lelouch: (thinking) Schneizel! You made your move and now you're calling check. There's no way out of this for me. It's over!
Kallen: Please answer me, Lelouch.
Lelouch: (laughing) Fools! You finally figured it out. That I've been using you all along. That's right. You're all just pawns in my game.
Ohgi: Zero, so you really are...
Tamaki: Zero!
Kallen: Lelouch, no...
Lelouch: Kallen. You were my most useful piece. Much like a well-played knight. This whole world was the board for the game, and all for my entertainment.
Kallen: I see. Goodbye then, Lelouch.
Tohdoh: Get ready!
Lelouch: [whispering] Kallen, you have to live.
Tohdoh: Fire!

[Even after being rejected by Lelouch, Rolo still comes to his aid nonetheless and helps him escape from the traitorous Black Knights]

Lelouch: That's enough, Rolo. I don't want to live anymore.
Rolo: I won't stop, brother, because of this.
Lelouch: Stop doing—

[Lelouch is interrupted as Rolo activates his Geass, causing an entire squadron of pursuing Akatsukis to drop out of the sky as their pilots are paralyzed]

Rolo: All throughout my life, people have used me like a tool.
Lelouch: —this, Rolo! Why are you still trying—

[Rolo activates his Geass again against a group of Britannian Portman IIs and destroys them with the Shinkirō's light hadron guns]

Rolo: I was used by the Order.
Lelouch: —to save me?! You know that—
Rolo: And then you used me, big brother. [clutches his chest as he starts to feel the effects of cardiac failure due to overuse of his Geass] Yeah, maybe you've been using me for your ends right from the very start. But… only the time I spent with you seemed real!
Lelouch: —I was only usi—

[Rolo activates his Geass once more against a group of Britannian Vincent Wards and destroys them with the Shinkirō's light hadron guns]

Rolo: It was… those memories… that finally made me… human!

[Rolo is forced to deactivate his Geass prematurely as he starts having breathing problems, right as the Shinkirō encounters a Britannian airship]

Lelouch: —using you! [sees Rolo's condition] Rolo!
Rolo: That's why I'm not… [attempts to activate his Geass again but fails to sustain it and starts coughing profusely] I'm not… [summons the effort to activate his Geass one final time]
Lelouch: No, stop using your Geass like that! Do you want to di—
Rolo: I'm not… a tool! I do this… out of my own… free will… as a human being!

[Rolo carves the Britannian airship to pieces with the Shinkirō's laser, making good his and Lelouch's escape]

[After Rolo lands the Shinkirō, Lelouch asks him why he did what he did]
Lelouch: Rolo, why did you save me, after all I've done to you?
Rolo: Because… you're a liar, big brother. It was… a lie, wasn't it? What you said about trying to kill me, about… hating me and all of that.
Lelouch: Of course, and you saw right through me, didn't you? Just what I'd expect of my little brother.
Rolo: [weakly; last words] That's right, I thought so, 'cause I know who you really are inside your heart. I know everything about you, big brother.
[Lelouch places Rolo's cell phone with the attached locket in his now-lifeless hand]
Lelouch: Yes, you got it right. Your big brother…is just a liar.

Emperor Dismissed

[within the Sword of Akasha, Emperor Charles starts to set his grand plan into motion]
Charles: God! Hear me now! The time has come to settle this!
Lelouch: You're wrong. You lift your voice to call upon God, but it's not God you need to settle things with, Charles zi Britannia.
[Emperor Charles turns around to face his wayward son]
Lelouch: It's me, your son!
Charles: And how will you challenge me? Neither gun nor sword will have any effect on me, nor will the power of your Geass! Nothing you can do can kill me!
Lelouch: But I don't need to kill you. By coming to this parallel realm, you've already ensured my victory.
[Emperor Charles grunts in surprise as the Kamine Island Thought Elevator is bombed; the skies of the Sword of Akasha turn dark and flash lightning briefly]
Charles: You sealed the exit?!
Lelouch: Yes! You, I, and the power of Geass are now sealed in this space together. And if you can no longer interfere with the real world, then all your plans will be meaningless in the end. You may as well be dead!
Charles: Lelouch!
Lelouch: This system, which you created, has become a prison, which now holds your own soul captive. Now, let us repent… suffering together for all eternity!

The Ragnarök Connection

[In C's World, Lelouch finally sees his mother in real form]
Lelouch: Mother... It can't be!
Marianne: My, Lelouch. How you've grown.
Lelouch: Mo-Mother!
Charles: Marianne, I see you've come.
Lelouch: Is this an illusion?! You're doing this?
Marianne: No, it really is me, Lelouch. However, I can only take on my original appearance while I'm present within this system.
Lelouch: It really is...
Charles: Lelouch, I will now answer your previous question. Half a century ago, my elder brother and I existed in a Hell on Earth; our family were just rivals competing for the throne. Assassinations occurred with regularity, dealing with betrayal and spawned by lies, killing each other off. My own mother fell victim to it. My brother and I were sick and angered by the world, we therefore both sworn an oath: to create a world without lies.
Marianne: Both C.C. and I agreed to this as well. V.V., however...
[Cut to the Britannian homeland, eight years ago...]
Marianne: What did you call me for today? I cleared everyone out of here, I even had Cornelia withdraw.
V.V.: Sorry to do this, especially without Charles around.
Marianne: Is this about the Sword of Akasha?
V.V.: Oh, no. This is only about Charles. Ever since he met you, Charles has been acting like a different man. It seems to me that you and he have come to enjoy learning more about one another. You realize if this continues, the contract we made will never be fulfilled. I will be left alone. From the beginning of time, it's always been the woman who led the man astray.
Personal Guard: Lady Marianne!
Marianne: I told you to stay out of here!
[V.V. pulls out a rifle and shoots Marianne and the guards repeatedly, killing them all.]
V.V.: [talking on a cellphone] The job is done. Right, Begin the cover-up, maybe we can make Nunnally act to be the witness. It's imperative that this look like the work of terrorists.
[A young Anya Alstreim hides behind the pillar, staring at the wounded Marianne.]
Marianne: Anya Alstreim, the young girl who arrived a week earlier to be schooled in etiquette. [Marianne uses her Geass to transfer her spirit into Anya.] My Geass power enables me to cross over to another person's mind. The power that had been latent for so long activated for the first time as I was dying. I hid inside Anya to save myself from being killed by V.V. and when I realized when my consciousness had surfaced, I could communicate mind to mind with C.C. When she discovered the truth, C.C. left the directorship to V.V. and then disappeared.
Charles: I spoke with my brother about it. However...
V.V.: I heard; what a tragedy. I shall miss Marianne.
Charles: [angrily] My brother lied to me! After we'd sworn to create a world without deceit.
[Back to the present...]
Lelouch: How dare you! Don't try to pass off blame for everything on the dead! Nunnally and I... you sent us to Japan as hostages!
Lelouch: NECESSARY FOR WHAT?! What kind of parent does that?!
C.C.: If you have someone you don't want to lose, you should keep them at a distance.

Charles: That's right, I sent both you and your sister to Japan to escape my brother's sight. That's also why I had Marianne's body secretly taken away.
Marianne: As long as my body still exists, there's the possibility that I'll be able to return to it.
Charles: Anya and Nunnally became witnesses, therefore it was necessary to rewrite their memories in order to protect everything.
Lelouch: Nunnally?! You mean her blindness wasn't psychosomatic after all?! But—
Marianne: Even though she was a false witness, there remained a very real danger she would be killed.
Charles: To ensure Nunnally's safety, proof was needed that would lead V.V. away from the truth.
Marianne: The original plan called for only one immortal Code. However, for research to progress we had to have an additional Code. In other words, without C.C., we didn't have an 100% guarantee that it would succeed.
Charles: When Marianne was unable to persuade C.C. to help us, we were left with no choice. We were forced to use you, Lelouch.
Lelouch: What was the point of me doing this?
Charles: These tragedies will no longer be necessary once the Ragnarok Connection is established.
Marianne: Masks will vanish, then everyone can be exactly who they're supposed to be.
Lelouch: I see, all the battle and bloodshed between Britannia and the Black Knights was to lure out C.C. Well then, it seems that from the very beginning I was merely a nuisance, just a ruckus in the world. [chuckles] And what do you two think of all this?
[Suzaku and C.C. approach, having arrived in C's World.]
C.C.: Did you already know that I was going to come here, Lelouch?
Lelouch: And that you regained your memories too. It was necessary for this plan, wasn't it?
Charles: Precisely. Therefore I cannot see any sense in you coming here as well, Kururugi.
Suzaku: I'm sure you can't. I'd heard that you're already immortal, that's why there something that I want to know for certain. Why did you make this thing? For what reason?
Charles: Why? Because it's what Nunnally and Euphie both desired: they wanted a gentler world.
Lelouch: Now I see. It's obvious.
Charles: The time is here. C.C., since we are all assembled, the plan can commence now. I will grant your wish after everything has been completed.
[Charles and C.C.'s Geass powers reveal the Sword of Akasha.]

[The Sword of Akasha is finally revealed.]
Marianne: Behold! It's begun! The Sword of Akasha is slaying God!
Charles: Now, once our marks of Geass become one, the old world will cease and the new world will spring forth. [approaches Lelouch, Suzaku, and C.C.]
Suzaku: Lelouch... what was your motivation for wanting to control the world?
Lelouch: Don't waste my time, Suzaku. You know it was Nunnally—
Suzaku: Or are you just using her as your excuse?
Lelouch: [scoffs lightly, but smirks] ...Yes, you're right. I am. I have fought to protect everything I thought I wanted to protect.
Suzaku: If you're going to achieve that end, you need to take action.
Lelouch: Yes. The means to that end requires me to reject something.
Suzaku: Which is...?
Lelouch: That I... [faces the Emperor] I reject you! And I reject everything you believe! Why do people lie? It isn't only because they struggle against each other! It's also because there is something that they're seeking. [C.C. looks down.] You now want a world without change. How stagnant! You can hardly call it life, the same as a world of memories. Just a world that's closed and completed... that's a place I wouldn't want to live in.
Marianne: But, Lelouch... are you saying you're rejecting me as well?
Lelouch: That depends. Is your desire the same as His Majesty's, Mother?
Marianne: It will be so good to rejoin all the people from whom we've been separated. You can be reunited with those who have died, even Euphemia.
[Suzaku narrows his eyes, clearly pained.]
Lelouch: As I expected. You both believe that this new world you envision would be best for all. But forcing your good intentions on others is no different from an evil act.
Charles: In time, the people will come to accept it.
Lelouch: [snapping out] That time will never come! Only one thing is undeniably certain; I understand now that what you did to Nunnally and me may have been done out of good intentions, but... the hard fact remains that you abandoned us in a foreign land!
Marianne: But we did that to protect you...!
Lelouch: Then why didn't you stop the war between Japan and Britannia?! [Marianne stops, verbally disarmed.] The plan was such a priority for you both, that it didn't matter to either of you if Nunnally and I were alive or dead! That's why you abandoned us. All you have left are self-serving excuses!
Marianne: Lelouch, you're wrong!
Lelouch: You just told me! You said that the dead will rejoin the living! You don't give a damn about the future!
Charles: The future is the Ragnarök Connection! Once it's finally done, the gentler existence that Nunnally spoke of will—
Lelouch: [interrupting] Stop it! The world you're speaking of will be kinder and gentler only for you! The world that my sister wished for... is one in which kindness was extended to everyone, even strangers!
Suzaku: [thinking] He may be right. At the very least, Euphie never said that Lelouch was Zero, even to the very end. Shirley didn't either. That's why I...!
Charles: Let's say it was true: what of it? There's nothing to be done about it, the Ragnarök Connection has begun!
Lelouch: You think so? I am Zero! [reveals his Geass] The man who works miracles!
Charles: Your Geass power will have no effect on me, nor will it on anyone else here!
Lelouch: No! There's someone else here, isn't there?
[Charles gasps, realizing what he means.]
Lelouch: That's right! C's World is the will of mankind itself! And "All men are not equal"; remember those words? They're your own! And because of that, I'm sure you realize that my power will work!
Charles: You're a fool, Lelouch! God cannot be defeated by the Power of the King!
Lelouch: I don't intend to defeat God! This is a request! Yes... now I know who I really am! God, collective unconscience! PLEASE, DON'T STOP THE MARCH OF TIME!!!
Marianne: [running toward Lelouch] Lelouch, you ungrateful child!
[Suzaku bars her path, his sword brandished.]
Suzaku: Nobody would've wanted this! No one, and especially not Euphie!
Marianne: And I saved you so that you could talk to Euphie again—!
Suzaku: Meaning you were going to force me to, right?!
Charles: [to Lelouch] You can't do this, boy! Not against God nor all of humanity itself!
Lelouch: Regardless, what I want... is TOMORROW!!!
[Lelouch's Geass evolves so that both of his eyes can cast the Geass, as he uses it to bring down the Thought Elevator.]
Marianne: It can't be!
Charles: The Thought Elevator is falling! The dream that I, and Marianne, and my brother all shared...
C.C.: [sitting down and curling up] Charles, just stop already. It was presumptuous to us to even attempt this.
Charles: C.C., we still bear the marks of Geass; no matter what occurs, we—! [gasps]
[Charles' body is now starting to dissolve into sparkling light.]
Lelouch: This isn't a falsehood, father. It's reality's response.
Marianne: Darling, you... [stops short as her body begins to vanish as well]
Charles: No, it's not possible! I'm supposed to be immortal! We're being absorbed?! Consumed by C's World?!
Marianne: But what about C.C.? Why isn't she disappearing as well? You supported this plan as much as we did!
C.C.: Sorry. But I finally realized: the love you have... is only for yourselves.
Marianne: No, that's not true at all. We love our children very much!
Lelouch: Do you have any idea what the meaning is behind Nunnally's beautiful smile?
Marianne: The meaning...?
Lelouch: [Tears are in his eyes.] Why don't you understand? Nunnally was blinded! My own sister was crippled! She knew... she knew that there were things in this world that she would never be able to do by herself! So her smile... Nunnally's smile... was her way of expressing gratitude!
Charles: You're laboring under a delusion—!
Lelouch: [livid, with wide eyes] I will not let you call that a lie! [grits his teeth, tears streaming down his face] Over my dead body! Your refusal to face reality! Content to watch us from afar! Don't make me laugh! There's only one truth here: You, my own parents — YOU ABANDONED US!!!
Charles: YOU CLEVER LITTLE FOOL!!! [rushes forward — shoving Marianne aside — and grabs Lelouch's neck]
Lelouch: [before Suzaku can interfere] Suzaku. Stay out of this.
Charles: Can't you understand that if you refuse me and what I offer, you will inherit his world, Schneizel's world! Do not judge me! Good and evil intentions are on each sides of the same card! Even then, you still have—!
Lelouch: [interrupting Charles] No matter what, I'll always reject the world you envision. BEGONE NOW!!!
[Charles and Marianne disintegrate, screaming even after their bodies vanish, their voices echoing.]


Milly: [broadcasting] It has been one month since the destruction caused by the F.L.E.I.J.A. warhead. Today His Majesty, Emperor Charles will make an important announcement to the entire nation. We will bringing you live international coverage of this from Pendragon Imperial Palace. Even though His Majesty had not made any public appearances in the past month.

[In the throne room of the emperor]

Carine le Britannia: Didn't somebody say that the emperor was missing?
Guinevere su Britannia: Bismarck was the one who reported that and he is gone.
Odysseus eu Britannia: As for Schneizel and the others, where are they?
Guinevere: Don't know, there's been no word from Cambodia yet.
Royal Guard: Presenting His Imperial Majesty!

[Everyone prepares the return of Emperor Charles, but suddenly Lelouch appears]

Odysseus: Huh?
Guinevere: But that's not...
Carine: Where's His Majesty?

[Lelouch sits on the throne]

Milly: What the hell?!
Rivalz: WHAT?! It can't be!
Kallen: But how...? There's no way!
Lelouch: Greetings, I'm Lelouch vi Britannia of the Royal Family, 99th Emperor of the Realm.
Bismarck Waldstein: Good Lord!
Gino: How could this be?
Carine: It's really you?!
Guinevere: You're alive?!
Lelouch: Yes, sister, I am. I've returned from the depths of hell intact.
Odysseus: Lelouch, how good to see you! When Nunnally was located, I figured that you would be found alive too. But now, aren't you carrying this joke a bit too far? That's the throne of our father...
Lelouch: Charles zi Britannia, the 98th Emperor, no longer lives, and I'm the one who took his life. [Everyone gasps] Therefore, that makes me the next emperor!
Carine: What are you saying?! Are you nuts?!
Guinevere: Guards! Take that fool and execute him! He's guilty of murdering our emperor!!!

[The guards were about to kill Lelouch but Suzaku defeated all at once]

Kallen: Suzaku! But why?!
Lelouch: May I introduce, Suzaku Kururugi, my knight! A knight of the realm above all others! I granted him a title the "Knight of Zero"!
Kaguya: Suzaku?! They're working together?!
Odysseus: Lelouch, Sir Kururugi. This just won't do, pulling a bad stunt like this on an international broadcast...
Lelouch: Do you think so? Then let me make this easy for you all to understand... [activates his Geass on everyone] Acknowledge me as your emperor!
Odysseus: Lelouch, I insist that you stop joking around like that... [Everyone is now under the control of his Geass] We hear and obey, Your Majesty!
Carine and Guinevere: All Hail Emperor Lelouch!!!

Emperor Lelouch

Reporter: Ninety-ninth emperor Lelouch, who ascended to the throne only a few days ago, has ordered the destruction of the Imperial Mausoleum, which held the remains of past Britannian emperors. Following his abolition of the aristocracy and breaking up plutocratic cliches, and the liberation of the Numbers, Odysseus and other royals express support the new emperor despite these actions.

Schneizel's Guise

[Cornelia is discussing with Schneizel about the destruction of the Britannian capital city Pendragon.]
Schneizel: Yes? What about it?
Cornelia: You mean the people of Pendragon were...
Schneizel: I made them vanish. It was better for them than a life-swearing loyalty to Lelouch, wouldn't you say?
Cornelia: They're our own people! And you told Nunnally...
Schneizel: Lies are expedient. There's no need to tell Nunnally things that would get in the way of her opposition to Lelouch is there? She'll never know the difference.
Cornelia: You use everyone...even your own sister?
Schneizel: Cornelia, what is it that people truly want? Starvation and poverty? Discrimination and corruption? War and terrorism? They want the problems that are flooding the world to go away forever. People can't understand each other under these situations at all.
Cornelia: Your theories don't justify butchering civilians!
Schneizel: Even civilians who have rejected war depend on the police, don't they? Everyone knows, don't they, that people are driven by their own desires. The lust that dwells within the soul of man cannot be denied. [Schneizel pushes three buttons on a panel to have a world map appear on the monitor.] So why win hearts and minds or tout some shining ideology, why not bring peace to the world with system and power? In ten days, Damocles will enter the airspace of the United States of China and then switch over to a secondary acceleration. After that, we're scheduled to ascend three-hundred kilometers above the surface. From there, we will hit every enemy nation with F.L.E.I.J.A.s.
Cornelia: Are you insane?! We only agreed to use them against Lelouch! This will destroy the world! You're trying to control people through fear!
Schneizel: Mankind's history is war. Peace is an illusion. To turn illusion into reality is a arduous task. It requires discipline.
Cornelia: And you plan to discipline the entire human race all by yourself?! Only a god could pull that off!
Schneizel: Then I shall become a god. If that is what it takes to bring peace to the world.
Cornelia: You're deranged...[Diethard and Kanon enter.]
Diethard: Magnificent! I knew I was right to change sides and support you! Surpassing Zero's chaos with a state of perfect nothingness and a kaleidoscopic transformation!
Kanon: Prince Scneizel, we've made contact with the Black Knights. They say if you plan to kill Lelouch, they're willing to join immediately.
Schneizel: Thank you, Kanon. [At Cornelia] Those who've experienced Lelouch's tyranny firsthand will have no alternative but to choose the lesser of evils.
Cornelia: Is that why you stayed back and let Lelouch get away with this until now?!
Schneizel: It was a way to minimize the damage. But in the end, if we have to sacrifice one or two billion lives to achieve a state of permanent peace...
Cornelia: You're wrong! Peace obtained by force is not peace! [Draws her sword and charges at Schneizel. Schneizel snaps his fingers which activate a hidden machine gun which guns down Cornelia.]
Schneizel: This is so sad, Cornelia.

The Grip of Damocles

Lelouch: Schneizel, You knew but you kept the truth from me all this time, just so you can play this card at the right moment! Still the way that you shuffled the deck was more than was remarkable, and effective.
[Nunnally is refusing to give Lelouch the key to launch the F.L.E.I.J.A.s.]
Nunnally: Lelouch, you have no right to seize control of the world. You of all people, who took the name Zero then bent the will of so many in order to serve your own.
Lelouch: Are you saying we would have been better off to remain in hiding? Did you want a future of living in constant fear of assassination? This was for your future too, Nunnally.
Nunnally: My future?! When did I ever say I wanted this? Lelouch, I would have been completely satisfied by just living with you!
Lelouch: Don't you see? Our reality is restricted by all sorts of things! Our whole history is struggle!

Lelouch Lamperouge: You are the only one I didn't want to use it on. [To Nunnally] Lelouch vi Britannia commands you: Hand over the Damocles Key to me NOW!

[Kallen has just exhausted her Guren S.E.I.T.E.N.'s last Radiant Wave Surger blast in her final fight against Suzaku.]
Kallen: The Radiant Wave Surger's out of ammo...!
[The Lancelot Albion's Blaze Luminous shields also power down.]
Suzaku: Now my shield energy is exhausted, too?
Kallen: BIG DEAL!
[Kallen chases after Suzaku; the Lancelot uses its Landspinners to scale the Damocles to gain some ground, but the Guren catches him as he reaches footing. The Guren jumps over the Lancelot and fires its Slash Harkens at the Lancelot. which dodges narrowly only for the Harkens to anchor on the Lancelot's back. The Guren then launches itself forward and swipes its Radiant Wave Surger claw at the Lancelot; Lancelot redirects the strike and throws a punch, only for Guren to block it with its forearm. The punch causes the Guren to roll back as its Harkens reel back into its shoulders. The Lancelot is pushing it back due to the force of the punch, but the Guren proceeds to lock its hands with the Lancelot's, struggling against it.]
Suzaku: I can't beat her! Even using the Geass I'm cursed with... your strength is unimaginable, Kallen.
Kallen: My machine has better specs than yours, yet... why? While you're this strong... do the right thing!
[This time, the Guren uses the same trick Suzaku did to get some space. Ending up on another platform, the Guren dodges the Lancelot as it whirls at it with a kick. Face-to-face, the Guren and the Lancelot throw furious, rapid-fire strikes at each other before the Guren flips over the Lancelot, launching its Slash Harkens yet again only for the Lancelot to jump over them as they hook into the wall behind it.]
[Kicking one of the Guren's Harkens aside, breaking it, the Lancelot latches to the wall with its own wrist-mounted Harken, then jumps off the wall at the Guren for Suzaku's signature kick.]
[Kallen has the Guren draw its arm back, retracting the claw to reveal the Radiant Wave Surger apparatus underneath, before thrusting it at the Lancelot's leg as it gets in range; the claw arm stabs into the Lancelot's leg and splinters it into fragments, causing it to grind to a screeching halt. As the Guren lunges yet again, Suzaku has the Lancelot fire its waist-mounted Harkens to fire at the Guren; they succeed in slicing off the claw arm and decapitating the Guren. As a result, the Guren glitches and shuts down.]
Kallen (shocked and upset): What happened...? You mean I didn't get him, then?
Suzaku (quietly, defeated): You're wrong... you got me alright... Kallen.
[The Guren's claw arm is revealed to have lodged itself in the Lancelot's chest, impaling it. Both Knightmares are critically damaged and deactivated. Kallen gives an exhausted smile before fainting, and the Guren falls, leaving its severed claw arm lodged in the Lancelot. The Guren is caught by Gino and his badly damaged Tristan Divider, while the Lancelot crackles with electricity before violently exploding, presumably killing Suzaku.]
Gino: You won. You beat him, Kallen.
[Kallen is resting inside the cockpit of her Guren, completely drained and unconscious.]

Jeremiah: Why, you impudent...!
Anya: Memorize recording complete.
Jeremiah: Not quite!
[Jeremiah has sacrificed his Sutherland Sieg to defeat Anya's Mordred]
Jeremiah: Fire!
[Jeremiah then self-destructs his Sutherland to damage the Mordred]
Jeremiah: Memorize THIS! Memorize Jeremiah Gottwald! Commit it to memory, because that is the memorable name of the man who has defeated you!
Anya: Memory? What memory? I remember nothing. I have no memory.
Jeremiah: [thinking] No memories? Could it be...? (revealing his Geass Canceler)

Lelouch: Attention, entire world! Hear my proclamation! I am Lelouch vi Britannia, Emperor of the Holy Britannian Empire and your only ruler! Schneizel has surrendered to me. As a result of this, I am in control of both the Damocles and the F.L.E.I.J.A. weapons, and not even the Black Knights have the strength to oppose me now. If anyone dares to resist my supreme authority, they shall know the devastating powers of the F.L.E.I.J.A.s! Those who could challenge my military eule no longer exist. Yes, from this day, from this moment forward, the world belongs to me! Lelouch vi Britannia commands you: Obey me, subjects! Obey me, world!
Jeremiah: All hail Lelouch!
All: All hail Lelouch! All hail Lelouch! All hail Lelouch!

Lelouch: The only ones who should kill are those prepared to be killed.

Lelouch: Suzaku, you shall kill me as promised. Right now all the hatred on the world is concentrated upon me as planned. Then all you have to do is erase my existence...put an end to this chain of hatred. The Black knights will have the legend of Zero left behind for them. Schneizel will work for Zero. Now the world can be united at one table, not through violence and military force, but through negotiation and can embrace the future.

Lelouch: Suzaku... you are going to be a hero. The messiah who saved everyone from the enemy of the world, Lelouch vi Britannia... as Zero! [Suzaku stabs Lelouch]

[As he has been impaled by Suzaku, Lelouch whispers to his friend.]
Lelouch: The punishment for what you have done shall be this then... you will live on, always wearing that mask, serving as a knight for justice and truth. You will no longer live your life as Suzaku Kururugi, (wipes his blood on Zero's mask) you shall sacrifice the ordinary pleasures of your life in benefit of the world for eternity.
Suzaku: This Geass... I do solemnly accept.

Nunnally: [To Lelouch] Lelouch? Are you...?
Lelouch: [Silent and looks out forward with a sad smile on his face]
Nunnally: [Gasps and puts her hand on Lelouch's, visualizes Lelouch and Suzaku putting the plan into action, realizes] You mean... everything you've done until now...? [Places Lelouch's hand to her cheek as tears fall from her eyes] Oh, big brother! I love you!
Lelouch: [weakly, last words] Yes... I... I destroy... the world... and create it... anew.

Kallen: Hey, Lelouch. The world has become a much better place since that eventful day. All the energy that was put to war is now being redirected towards poverty and hunger. All the world's evil and hatred has been thrown upon you... Maybe it was easier for the people to recognize the name of one man, instead of a system known as the Damocles. Sounds too good to be true, eh? That's also the reason why people are not imprisoned by the past and can move towards the future... Even now you may be laughing and telling me, "it was all according to your plan". Of course we still have problems... But even so...

[last words of the series]
C.C.: I said that the Geass is the power of the king which would condemn you to a life of solitude. I think that's not quite correct. Right, Lelouch?
