Heh, well, Yoshika's methods with the other members of the 501st were a little less percussive than that, but in some cases involved overcoming similarly committed resistance (some of her colleagues were right jerks when she first joined the firm). She did try to make friends with a Neuroi once, but it didn't really work out. Which was a shame, actually, because Neuroi-san was kind of cool, and the Enemy Defector is a time-honored fixture of fighter pilot dramas.
"What's with all the security?"
"Countermeasures against possible Neuroi infiltrators. You can't be too careful."
"... Neuroi do not infiltrate."
"Oh, Miyafuji, you're going to have to get a permit for your personal assistant robot if you want to keep it on the base."
"... Neuroi do not intentionally infiltrate."
