Well, it took them 4 episodes to get to Amuro's trademark line 'Gundam Ikimas' being uttered by this show's Amuro clone. I wonder if they'd going to recycle Char's trademark line?
Renpou no MS wa bakemono ka?
It wouldn't make much sense since ZAFT has 4. ^^
I wouldn't be suprised in the least. I'm not convinced that SEED has any you know..WRITERS yet.
Mostly chopped up scripts from other shows.
I believe it's 'Mitometaku nai mono dana ...wakasa yue no ayamachi to iu mono o'. Even though most American Gundam fans don't realize it, it's the most famous quote in all of Gundam.
Among other Gundam references, it's also quoted in one of the later episodes of Excel Saga by the Char Aznable Puchuu fighting the Excel Amuro.
