When Sinbad asks if he's having nightmares about Rina, Anwar admits that the story Rina told about him saving her life might have contained a few exaggerations.

Episode Quotes
Gunnar: You were talking again. In your sleep. If you're going to talk, get back to your cabin.
Anwar: I've just... been a bit consumed with thoughts lately.
Gunnar: Yes, well, go consume elsewhere.

Anwar: Remind me again why a shipwreck has been what we've been looking for.
Sinbad: Because wrecks have secrets onboard.
Anwar: Secrets are a good thing?
Sinbad: Ha. I think it would do us all some good to have a bit of excitement.

Anwar: Is it just me, or does anyone find this a little bit morbid?
Gunnar: It's not the first shipwreck, then. No sign of our fortune yet. You see, far easier to scavenge off a fresh ship.
Anwar: You really are incredibly compassionate, did you know that?
Gunnar: Heh. Compassion is overrated.

Rina: You don't look like a god.
Kuji: How do you expect a god to look? White hair, big beard? Gods can take any shape and beards can be horribly scratchy. I decided I'd prefer to be pretty.

Kuji: Ummm. This food is good. What is it?
Gunnar: Ours.

Sinbad: What happened to the troops?
Anwar: Scared them off. Turns out I'm stronger than you think. Stronger than I think.
