In the final exchange between Amuro and Char, Char first says that Quess
was looking for a father, which annoyed him so much that he treated her
like a machine instead, then goes on to say that Lalar Sun was the woman
who could have become the mother he never had. Amuro's reply is cut off in
mid-sentence, so we never find out what he made of that.

The "450,000 Kilometers in Search of Mother" is a play on the title of the
1976 Isao Takahata/Hayao Miyazaki (with storyboards by Yoshiyuki Tomino)
anime classic "3,000 Leagues in Search of Mother" with the distance from
Earth to lunar orbit substituted for the distance across Europe.
