The Wandering Gambler:
It is recommended that you clear Ch. 5: Palace of Malitia before playing.
- ???: Well, what do we have here?
- ???: Grasslands as far as the eye can see and not a casino or pub in sight. Wish there was at least a beautiful lady to keep me company.
- ???: If only I had my airship.
- Mog: Kupo! I can sense the light coming from that man!
- Terra: Setzer!?
- Setzer: Heh, wasn't expecting to run into you guys here.
- Shadow: Setzer, you too? How long have you been in this world?
- Setzer: What do you mean "this world"?
- Shadow: This moogle knows more about it than I do. He can fill you in.
- Mog: Leave it to me, kupo!
- Setzer: Whew... Sounds like I've gotten myself in a real mess this time.
- Setzer: And you say you want me to help you save the world?
- Hope: That's right.
- Terra: The world will be destroyed if we don't do something. Setzer, please come with us.
- Setzer: Thanks, but no thanks.
- Mog: Kupo!? Why?
- Setzer: No casinos, no pubs... There's nothing to live for here, so why risk my life?
- Mog: Awww, kupo...
- Setzer: I'm a wandering gambler. I do what I want, going wherever the wind takes me.
- Shadow: Hmph. You never change, even if the world does.
- Setzer: Life is a series of gambles. You've gotta go with your gut.
- Setzer: I just want to be the one who rolls the dice.
- Mog: Why do you have to be so difficult, kupo?
- Setzer: Well, good luck with that saving the world thing. Who knows? Maybe we'll meet again one day.
- Terra: Setzer...
- Hope: What a mysterious person. Are you sure we can trust him?
- Shadow: He would no doubt be an excellent addition to our cause.
- Shadow: Perhaps an airship really could tilt things in our favor.
Why We Fight:
- ???: Well, I'm impressed.
- Setzer: I watched you take care of those monsters.
- Mog: You're back, kupo! It's nice to see you again!
- Warrior of Light: Setzer, was it? Have you decided to accept our proposal?
- Setzer: Not quite. I'm just trying to figure something out.
- Hope: What do you mean?
- Setzer: Why do you fight? What are you risking your lives for?
- Setzer: There's not a single town or person in this world. Nothing here's worth fighting for.
- Warrior of Light: We are no different from you—warriors from another world.
- Warrior of Light: Naturally, we all have homes we must return to and dreams yet to be fulfilled. Surely that is worth fighting for.
- Setzer: Chasing after your dreams, huh?
- Yuffie: Exactly! Take me for example. My dream's to one day steal enough treasure to restore glory to my village!
- Vivi: When I get home, I wanna go to the theater and watch plays every day.
- Hope: No matter what happens, I can't let myself give up—for the sake of my friends and for myself as well. I'm using this opportunity to get stronger.
- Warrior of Light: We continue our journey because each of us has something we're looking to accomplish. Is that not enough?
- Setzer: All right, you've got me.
- Setzer: I mean, why not? Consider my life a chip in your pile.
- Terra: Do you mean...!?
- Setzer: What you said reminded me that I still have a dream like no other. I was a fool.
- Setzer: Sitting around isn't gonna solve anything. You know, sometimes you've just gotta roll the dice and hope for the best.
- Yuffie: I didn't even get half of that, but you sounded cool to me!
- Setzer: I'm a gambler. Deception is but one of my many talents. I'll show you just how rewarding my skills can be in battle.
- Warrior of Light: We are counting on you.
- Hope: Yeah, we really appreciate the help.
- Mog: Thanks, everybody, for getting him onboard, kupo!
- Setzer: I can't wait. What could be more exciting than gambling with your own life?
- Hope: It looks like we've sealed all the Torsions in this area.
- Sazh: Then let's fly outta here!
- Vaan: Hey Sazh, let me take a turn at the wheel for once!
- Sazh: Not in a million years, kid.
- Setzer: Hold up, old man.
- Sazh: Old man? You talkin' about me?
- Hope: Who else would he be talking about?
- Setzer: Did you just say "airship"? You have one?
- Sazh: Of course, I do! You're lookin' at the best pilot this world's ever seen.
- Sazh: Wh-what?
- Setzer: I thought you were just some guy in a strange getup from another world, but it looks like we're one and the same after all.
- Sazh: What do you mean "one and the same"?
- Vaan: Wait... Setzer, you're a pilot, too?
- Setzer: Captain of the Blackjack, my own personal airship and true love.
- Sazh: What, you too!?
- Hope: I thought you were a gambler, not a pilot.
- Setzer: Don't get me wrong. I do love gambling—to the point that I even built a casino on my airship.
- Setzer: But that's not my calling. What I want most is to be the fastest thing soaring across the wide blue yonder.
- Vaan: I know what you mean. One day, I want to be the greatest sky pirate there ever was!
- Sazh: There's nothing like flying, right!? Man, I'd love to hear some of your stories!
- Shadow: Looks like they really hit it off.
- Mog: I'm glad we're all friends now, kupo!
- Setzer: I'm sure I'll discover new revelations looking down from the clouds on what I once thought was a barren world.
- Setzer: All right, I've made up my mind. I'm going to become the fastest pilot in this world!
- Setzer: It doesn't matter where you are. If you're going to dream, dream big. Right, old man?
- Sazh: Now that's what I'm talkin' about!
- Vaan: Don't count me out yet! Come on, I challenge you to a race!
- Hope: I wish I had something that I could get excited about.
- Sazh: Hope, you're still young. You've got the rest of your life ahead of you to find something you enjoy.
- Hope: You're right. I'll remember that.
