If one were to say in a word what the condition of being a samurai is, its basis lies first in seriously devoting one's body and soul to his master.


Sonny Valerio: Where's he live?
Louie: ****, if I know. That's the next strange thing. I mean, I can't just call him up. Instead, he contacts me every day through a bird.
[pause]
Sonny Valerio: Did you just say he contacts you through a bird? Did I just hear you say that?

Ice Cream Man: Hey did you know Ice Cream is really good for you, lots of calcium

It is said that what is called "the spirit of an age" is something to which one cannot return. That this spirit gradually dissipates is due to the world's coming to an end. In the same way, a single year does not have just spring or summer. A single day, too, is the same. For this reason, although one would like to change today's world back to the spirit of one hundred years or more ago, it cannot be done. Thus it is important to make the best out of every generation.

When one has made a decision to kill a person, even if it will be very difficult to succeed by advancing straight ahead, it will not do to think about doing it in a long, roundabout way. One's heart may slacken, he may miss his chance, and by and large there will be no success. The Way of the Samurai is one of immediacy, and it is best to dash in headlong.

Now is the time to tell us everything you know about this mysterious ghostlike untraceable ****in' button man.

Nothing seems to make sense anymore.
