General Rokurota Makabe
Princess Yuki

View Quote General Hyoe Tadokoro: Why did you let me survive the shame of my defeat? To defeat an enemy yet let him live may seem kind, but it's cruel!
View Quote General Makabe: Where's Matashichi?
Tahei: I don't know!
[Makabe drags the shifty peasant down the steps into the courtyard]
Tahei: Ow, ow, ow...
General Makabe: What are you up to?
Tahei: H-he-he's gone to the town...
General Makabe: The town? What for?
Tahei: To- to tell the soldiers...
General Makabe: Tell them what?
Tahei: A-about the Princess, of course!
General Makabe: The Princess?
[Makabe let's go of Tahei in surprise. Tahei scrambles away]
Tahei: We ain't... as stupid as you think! You thought you'd fooled us! We know you... that ten ryo you had... it's from the war funds you stole! On top of that, you intend to get a reward for the Princess! We ain't gonna let you!
General Makabe: I was wrong to trust such s****.
Tahei: Look who's talking- you're the s****!
View Quote Izumi Nagakura: How long can we rely on them?
General Makabe: We can rely on their greed. Make them carry gold and they'll put up with anything.
View Quote Izumi Nagakura: This is good! To fool the Yamana by going through enemy lines.
General Makabe: This was the peasants' idea. Depending on their answers, I was ready to kill them. But hearing their plan to go through Yamana to Hayakawa, I was stunned.
Izumi Nagakura: Sometimes even moss can be smart.
View Quote Izumi Nagakura: What shall we do with the princess? We can disguise her looks, but not her class and her speech.
General Makabe: Her Highness will have to be a mute.
View Quote Matashichi: Damn it! Gone again!
Tahei: He's on his high horse watching us do all the work.
Matashichi: Right. He's probably running around looking for that girl.
Tahei: Maybe he already found a place and is sleeping with her.
Matashichi: We agreed to split everything in three. The girl should be the same.
View Quote Matashichi: We can't go home like this.
Tahei: Then strip that dead guy.
Matashichi: Huh? I may be desperate, but I ain't a thief.
Tahei: Do what you want. I'm getting out of here!
[Tahei starts to limp off down the road]
Matashichi: Go on, then. I'll catch up to you after I make a buck.
Tahei: Don't come crying to me, then! [He scoffs] You'll get caught again and be digging graves! You'll see!
[Matashichi picks up dust and throws it at Tahei]
Matashichi: Damn you! Go on, get! It'll be a blessing to see you go!
[Tahei scoffs again]
Matashichi: You shitworm!
View Quote Matashichi: Where is she? Who is she?
General Makabe: I don't know. She's really quick, though. She's already gone. Look. She's mine, okay? I'll kill you if you go near her.
View Quote Old Lady-in-Waiting: I don't know what to do with her Highness. It's the lord's fault. Even if he was lacking an heir, it was cruel to raise her Highness like a boy. Say right and she'll go left, say left and she'll go right. And though she is a girl, she has never shown me a tear. The same with her present behavior. Insensitive to your pain of having sacrificed your sister, she herself doesn't shed a tear, but she still criticizes you. It's too much.
General Makabe: Her Highness is the real sacrifice. Her suffering is having to rebuild the Akizuki clan.
View Quote Princess Yuki: Buy that girl back.
General Makabe: I cannot.
Princess Yuki: Why not? I am the Princess of Akizuki. I can't bear to see one of our own in trouble.
General Makabe: No, you're the one in trouble. Your kindness will be your downfall.
Princess Yuki: I don't care! Buy her back.
View Quote Slave Trader: [to a slave girl] You're so slow! Pay attention and bring some water! Always crying, but you refuse to take johns. You were a lousy deal.
Potential slave buyer: Where did you get her?
Slave Trader: In Akizuki. Lose a war and plenty of women go on sale.
View Quote Tahei: Get away from me! You stink of dead bodies!
Matashichi: Give it up. We both stink of dead bodies. And it's all your fault!
View Quote Tahei: Hey! What's your name?
General Makabe: Me? I'm Rokurota Makabe.
Tahei: Rokurota Makabe? I've heard that name before.
Matashichi: Makabe?
Matashichi, Tahei: Makabe?
Tahei: Makabe?
Matashichi: Makabe?
Matashichi, Tahei: Rokurota? Eh?
Matashichi: Get out of here! Rokurota Makabe is a legendary Akizuki samurai general! You take us for fools?
[Makabe laughs and walks away]
Tahei: We shouldn't put up with this.
Matashichi: Hey! Stop fooling around! You're no general. You're just a bully. What's with the big attitude?
[Makabe continues laughing]
Matashichi: Don't make fun of us! Damn you!
View Quote Tahei: If we want to get rid of him, now's our chance.
Matashichi: Shhh.
[He points at Princess Yuki sitting right behind them]
Tahei: Don't worry. She's mute.
Matashichi: She's mute but she can hear.
Tahei: You idiot. A mute can't speak because they're deaf.
View Quote Tahei: [Holding onto Matashichi as the escaping, rioting prisoners run past] Matashichi, this is hell!
Matashichi: Let's die together.
