Van: I don't believe it. That isn't a mirage?
Van: What are you doing here?!
Irvine: I didn't introduce myself last time, i'm Irvine. Thought I heard some bandits, but its just you, kid.
Van: What do you mean, kid? Your not the only one with a name, sleezeball!
Irvine: Quit yapping and get out of the lake, little kid.

Van: What'd you butt in for? We had the battle totally under control. We didn't need you to steal the show.
Irvine: I was not stealing the show. I was just trying to fight efficiently.
Van: What do you mean efficiently?!
Irvine: I conserved my energy for the last act.
Van: But, what if he'd shot me down right in the beginning? Then how would you have gotten to me, in time to help?
Irvine: I'l explain it some day, in the mean time, I intend to take Zeke for myself one day. Until we meet again, Kid.
Fiona: You know Van, that Irvine guy believed in you. He knew you weren't going to lose.
Van: Come on, Fiona. Lets get on with our mission to find the Zoid Eve. But if I catch you getting rid of any more of my water. Your gonna find yourself in big trouble.
