Violet: ?! / You know who I am?! / I have been watching you all along, too!! / You and...Rebecca!!
Violet: I know all about your struggles these past ten years. // It must have been hard. / You have my thanks.

Gladius: Violet!! I will never forgive... / ...a traitor!!!
Violet: I have betrayed no-one!! / Not once since that day ten years ago have I considered myself one of you!!!
Gladius: Either way, your actions... // ...are an insult to the young master!!!

Luffy: Hey, why are we hiding?!! Mingo was right there!!
Violet: (Quiet! We mustn’t ruin their operation!!)
Doflamingo: Your target is the Smile Factory alone... / Isn’t that right? // This isn’t something you could pull off on impulse in a single day......!! / Why are the Straw Hats connected to the dwarfs of Green Bit?!!
Doflamingo: How did they infiltrate the underground......?! // Why are they targeting Sugar...?!! // If this isn’t coincidence...it means they know the very root of the darkness in this country...!!!
Baby5: Didn’t you hear the young master ask you a question?! Let’s hear some answers!! / Law!!
Buffalo: You don’t have to do it if it makes you cry... / You two really are the same as ever.
Law: ......I told you already... // That crew has nothing to do with me any more... / Our alliance is over. // I can barely understand a damn thing you’re saying...
Doflamingo: Hmph...!! If only Violet were here, we could have the truth out of you in no time, but alas... // I hope you don’t have anything to do with all this... King Riku!!
Doflamingo: The Tontatta served you, once upon a time...
Violet: (Father!! Why is he in the Palace...?!!)
Luffy: Looks like Law’s alive, at least!

Franky: Shut up!! I’ve made my decision... / ...to keep causing pointless chaos here!!! So let’s get fighting!!!
Franky: (If I let these people chase me down into the underground... / ...I’ll just be causing more trouble for the dwarfs!!! // The SOP Operation is up to you guys!!) // Bring it on!!!
Franky: (I’ll handle things here!!! // We’re counting on you, Usoland!!!)
[Box: Underground Trading Port - Remains of the Officers’ Tower]
People: What the heck happened here?! // Intruders, apparently, but seeing as they’re up against Trebol-sama... // I almost feel sorry for them. They’re as good as dead.
Robin: (I was careless......!!) // .........
Flashback!Robin: Now!! Put the grape into her mouth!!
Robin: (Even I’ve been turned into a toy!! // ...Everyone must have forgotten that I exist... // Usopp!! Where’s Usopp?! // We’re counting on you, Usopp... You’re the only chance we have left!! // You have to turn us all back into humans!!)
