"A Rainy Night" is the thirty-third episode of Robotech: The Macross Saga.


Claudia Grant consoles Lisa Hayes over her fears that Rick and Minmei may be trying to rekindle their relationship.


Lisa Hayes is miserable. Her potential relationship with Rick Hunter has just come crashing down around her. She knows Rick Hunter is still in love with Minmei and now, Minmei seems to be returning his sentiments. Lisa feels that she’s lost him – this time for good.

Claudia Grant tries to console and counsel her friend. She shares memories of her relationship with Roy Fokker. It was a stormy courtship filled with as many difficulties as Lisa has experienced with Rick. She advises that the worst problems come from non-communication. "Don’t keep him waiting, Lisa," Claudia advises. "Don’t let too much time go by before telling him how you feel."

Lisa promises to try.
