Quotes Edit

Seekvaira Agares: If you got a death wish, i'm happy to fill it, Zephyrdor!

Zephyrdor Glasya-Labolas: Filling is my job. Like I said before, if you need a virgin-purgen, i'd volunteer.

Xenovia Quarta: What's their deal?

Genshirou Saji: We're gonna rumble.

Rias Gremory: Right on cue.

Sairaorg Bael: At least we've come to expect this sort of thing after all these years.

Rias Gremory: Hello, Sairaorg.

Sairaorg Bael: I'll give a warmer welcome later. (approaches Seekvaira and Zephyrdor) That's enough. Don't dishonor the Agares Family by humoring him, princess. We all know he's Glasya-Labolas' problem child.

Zephyrdor Glasya-Labolas: Screw you, jackass! Nobody talks about me like that!

Sairaorg Bael: I know it's strict, but that's your only warning. If you wanna push it, i'd be more than happy to show you the door. (cracking his knuckles)

Zephyrdor Glasya-Labolas: Ha, I'm not afraid of Bael trash! (lunges at Sairaorg only to get knocked back to a wall and fall unconscious causing Asia to be flown back by the force but is caught by Diodora Astaroth)

Diodora Astaroth: Don't worry, you're alright.

Asia Argento: Uh, thank you.

Genshirou Saji: That was nuts!

Rias Gremory: A fine showing by the next Bael Family head. No shock though. He is my cousin after all.
