  • "I've heard a great deal about you, Fa Mulan."

  • "You're a young woman. And in the end... you have saved us all."
  • "Take this, so the world will know what it is you have done for China."
  • ""Thank you"? Is that all there is to say, Captain? If you wish to win the heart of Fa Mulan, China's bravest woman, you'll have to be a bit more eloquent than that!"
  • "You shall be missed."
  • "Ahh. So it is as the young man said. Isn't that right, Captain?"
  • "It seems that young man was the one in black that I have heard whispers about."

Then, I could alert and prepare my troops."
  • "I hardly expected such humble requests. In this case, I'm afraid I must refuse. Captain Li's responsibility is to protect the Emperor. And yet, Mulan... Would you like to serve alongside him and protect me?"
  • "Two reeds together are stronger than one. But the choice is yours alone."
