[After talking to Luke on the phones, Zidane had a lot of things to think about.
He had heard some months ago that it was possible that everyone’s memories were fake. Like many people, Zidane really did hope that it was not true. However, even he was not stupid to completely dismiss the possibility. And now he found that it was true.....well, not exactly. His memories of growing up on Gaia, being raised as a thief in Tantalus, searching for his birthplace, kidnapping Dagger on the airship, going on a journey to stop Kuja and save Gaia.....none of these memories were technically fake. They just didn’t belong to him – they belonged to the real Zidane.
....So that meant that he wasn’t real?
Wait a minute. That wasn't true. Zidane remembered going through a similar line of thought when he discovered his origins.....well no, when the real Zidane discovered his origins. Still, just because that was not his memories, did not mean that they were not relevant.
Eventually, the thief decides to pick up the phone and talk to everyone. After all, he is not the only one who’s had to deal with this little piece of news....]
So guys, a lot of things have happened in the past few days. And there’s a lot that we’ve found out. And I admit, it’s not exactly what we wanna hear. However, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and now there is something I want you guys to remember.
...No matter what we are or where we came from, that doesn't tell us who we are. What defines us is what we do with our lives and the friends we make. That’s all
We may not be who we thought we were, but that doesn't mean that we aren’t living people, too. We have the right to exist, just as much as anyone else, copies or not.
I know a lot of you guys probably don’t believe this right now, but let me tell you something....I....well no, the real Zidane, I wouldn’t call his origins exactly normal. But despite that, it didn’t define who he was as a person. His friends helped him realise that.
.......Why would you or I be any different?
[A deep breath] I’m not sure what’s gonna happen to us. But I do know one thing.....none of us deserve to live a life of torture and pain, whether it’s by Zemekis, this Johnson chick or anyone else. We’ll find a way to stop Miss Johnson! After that, well......I don’t know. But we’ve got time to worry about that later. [He’s still trying to work that one himself.]
