Lupin the 3rd: The Mystery of Mamo (1978)
Daisuke Jigen: I have a sinking feeling about this.
Arsene Lupin III: You just gave me a great idea, buddy.

Daisuke Jigen: Hey, the road's over there!
Arsene Lupin III: Shut up!

Arsene Lupin III: You want a pillow back there...?
Daisuke Jigen: Just drive the damn car.
Arsene Lupin III: Goemon!

Goemon Ishikawa: The thing I can't stand is that secret indecent intention of yours!
Daisuke Jigen: Forget it. That's one thing you can never cure.
Goemon Ishikawa: And just what are you to Lupin? If you were a true friend, you should have cured his immoral habit years ago!
Daisuke Jigen: Don't get hysterical, you crazy man!
[a standoff between Goemon and Jigen ensues]
Goemon Ishikawa: I've been wanting to cut that hat of yours.
Daisuke Jigen: Hmm? What's that mean?
Goemon Ishikawa: I want to see if you're hiding a bald head!
Daisuke Jigen: Well, now! Wanna fight?

Daisuke Jigen: So, this is the genuine American navy?
Goemon Ishikawa: It's stupid. This is too unrealistic.
Daisuke Jigen: You and me are the things that are unrealistic.

Goemon Ishikawa: This infantile need to prove your virility is humiliating to behold... and dangerous. Your lust for this creature has blinded you to her true nature.
Arsene Lupin III: [sighs] You're jealous. Both of you.
Goemon Ishikawa: I warn you - abandon these indecent cravings for the sake of your soul.
Daisuke Jigen: Save it. You'll never change him by preaching at him, Goemon.
Goemon Ishikawa: And you. What kind of friend are you, Jigen? You just encourage him. You treat it as some kind of joke. You're worse than he is.
Daisuke Jigen: Hey, I don't have to listen to this!
[a standoff between Goemon and Jigen ensues]
Goemon Ishikawa: Be careful I don't sink my blade into that hat of yours.
Daisuke Jigen: Yeah? You just try it.
Goemon Ishikawa: On second thought, I'd probably hit solid rock.

Daisuke Jigen: All this just to bag the two of us. Boy, with the Cold War over, things must be pretty slow.
Goemon Ishikawa: We can thank Lupin for getting us into this.
Daisuke Jigen: Life'd sure be dull without him, wouldn't it?

Goemon Ishikawa: Bad enough that your infantile addiction to this woman has consistently rendered you an unreliable business partner. But even now, as she conspires with others to have us killed, you continue to defend her! It shows that...
Arsene Lupin III: Please. Go on. Shows what?
Goemon Ishikawa: ...that you are a weak man of no conviction and no honour.
Daisuke Jigen: Come on. You're being a little too harsh, aren't you, Goemon?
Goemon Ishikawa: It is only natural for you to defend the actions of Lupin, especially since you are responsible for some of his sins as well.
Daisuke Jigen: What? Why, you pious jerk!
Goemon Ishikawa: What?
[a standoff between Goemon and Jigen ensues]
Goemon Ishikawa: I've always wanted to slash that ridiculous hat of yours!
Daisuke Jigen: Huh? What was that?
Arsene Lupin III: Guys, come on!
Goemon Ishikawa: It's probably hiding a bald spot as big as your ass!
Daisuke Jigen: Now that's it!
Arsene Lupin III: Hey, wait! Come on! Look! You're right, OK? I'll turn over a brand new leaf! The woman is history! Word of honor! Now shake hands, and let's move on, OK?... I said let's go, alright, guys?

Goemon Ishikawa: A samurai warrior cannot work for a female. You accepted the commission to steal the stone for her only because you like the look of her ass. The wise man has said, "nice asses turn men into asses."
Arsene Lupin III: True... that sure was a wise guy.
Goemon Ishikawa: Your degenerate mockery is getting dangerously irritating!
Daisuke Jigen: Goemon, you ain't gonna get anywhere, so give up like I have.
Goemon Ishikawa: And do you dare to represent yourself as his friend? Willingness to amputate without ether is the test of friendship, and you have failed it!
Daisuke Jigen: God, you're such a boring schmuck!
[a standoff between Goemon and Jigen ensues]
Goemon Ishikawa: The time has come for me to slice off your hat!
Daisuke Jigen: Mm? Just try!
Goemon Ishikawa: We shall see how little brain you have underneath it!
Daisuke Jigen: Okay! Try your luck!

Fujiko Mine: [referring to Mamo's promise of eternal life] I can't believe it. It was all a lie!
Arsene Lupin III: Maybe it wasn't. I think he was researching immortality...
Daisuke Jigen: He's just another wacky old rich guy.
Arsene Lupin III: Or a clone.
Daisuke Jigen: Say what?
Arsene Lupin III: You said it yourself. The guy had the bucks to pull anything off! Technologically, it's not a big deal anymore. Just a little dab of DNA'll do ya, and theoretically, if you repeat the process over and over again, you - or, successive copies of you - could live forever.
Daisuke Jigen: Well, it certainly would explain the mystery of your dear departed doppelganger...
Arsene Lupin III: And a single strand of my hair is really all anybody would have needed to do it.
Daisuke Jigen: Anybody with a few billion dollars to play with...

Daisuke Jigen: Don't be a friggin' idiot!
Arsene Lupin III: That's just it... I'd be an idiot if I didn't go!
Daisuke Jigen: The world is full of women, Lupin!
Arsene Lupin III: It's lousy with women. But not with love.


Lupin the Third: The Gravestone of Daisuke Jigen (2014)
[from trailer]
Arsene Lupin III: Can you make it?
Daisuke Jigen: Who are you talking to? Do you think that I will be beaten? In the end, you're a business partner, not a friend.

Arsene Lupin III: [reads newspaper headlines] "Queen Marta, world-renowned singer from East Doroa, assassinated in West Doroa... non-aggression pact between East and West broken, national relations tenuous..." is West Doroa trying to make an enemy out of the world by breaking that peace treaty?
Daisuke Jigen: Who knows what they're thinking? My sympathies are for all the citizens getting caught in this divided-nation crap.
Arsene Lupin III: What's up with you?
Daisuke Jigen: It was my job to protect her, that's all...

Daisuke Jigen: There ain't room in this world for two top gunslingers!

Daisuke Jigen: What made you decide to risk your life to be here?
Queen Malta: I could ask you the same thing. What made you take this job?... I apologize. I want to believe that the power of music can bring the East and West from the brink of war.
Daisuke Jigen: Heading into enemy territory just to sing? You're a brave one, that's for sure.
Queen Malta: This country isn't the only enemy I face...

Daisuke Jigen: It isn't easy to play dead at the drop of a hat.
Arsene Lupin III: Oh, your act was very realistic. You should go on Broadway, you'd act the hell out of a corpse.
Daisuke Jigen: Spare me!

[Lupin and Jigen check out Okuzaki's hideout]
Daisuke Jigen: [checks out the wardrobe] Identical suits, really?
Arsene Lupin III: Prada... looks like you two have something in common.
Daisuke Jigen: I've got a wide range of suits, from Givenchy to Fendi!

Arsene Lupin III: He has us in his sights!
Daisuke Jigen: If we don't make it to the warehouse, we're screwed!
Arsene Lupin III: Then we'll just have to make a run for it!
Daisuke Jigen: Wait a minute! If we're not careful we'll be sitting ducks out there! And I ain't ready to go just yet!
Arsene Lupin III: Just relax. He doesn't know when we'll run! On the count of three, right?
Daisuke Jigen: This is a gamble, not a plan! It's ME he's after, you know! Screw this up, and I'll haunt you for the rest of your days!

Daisuke Jigen: I'm not in the habit of shooting defenseless people.
Yael Okuzaki: You never learn, only a madman would expect a different result!
Daisuke Jigen: I wouldn't be so sure...
Yael Okuzaki: Then... allow me to change.
[puts on a white jacket to replace his ruined one]
Daisuke Jigen: Another identical suit? I would call it an obsession, by this point.

Daisuke Jigen: How could they kill a singer from their own homeland who only desired peace?
Arsene Lupin III: No one can understand the mind of a tyrant.
Fujiko Mine: Oh, it's quite simple! Everyone loves money!

[Fujiko absconds with the Calamity File]
Daisuke Jigen: Are you ever gonna wise up? You ain't doing yourself any damn favours by keeping that woman around.
Arsene Lupin III: Don't be like that...
[holds up the FIle]
Daisuke Jigen: Jeez, I don't know why I put up with you...
Fujiko Mine: [looks through a duplicate] What the hell is this?

Arsene Lupin III: Could I ask you something? Why did you send Queen Marta's Calamity File to the media?
Daisuke Jigen: [remembers Queen Marta] I just... needed a good smoke.
Arsene Lupin III: Now that I can agree with.
[burns the File]
Daisuke Jigen: You sure about this?
Arsene Lupin III: It's not like we were ever trying to be heroes.
Daisuke Jigen: Damn straight. Just a thief...
Arsene Lupin III: ...And a gunslinger.
[both light their cigarettes with the burning file, and laugh]


Lupin III: The Castle of Cagliostro (1979)
Daisuke Jigen: Which are we helping?
Lupin III: The girl!
Daisuke Jigen: Typical!

Daisuke Jigen: Did you slip into that castle?
Lupin III: It's a story more than ten years old. I tried to solve the mystery of the Goat Money. I was still a young punk...
Daisuke Jigen: So what happened?
Lupin III: They gave me hell! I ran away with my tail between my legs.

Daisuke Jigen: Hey there, Lupin. You figure a way in yet?
Lupin III: Nope. That place is incredible. A nest of lasers and radar.
Daisuke Jigen: I see. We may even need a tank.
Goemon Ishikawa: That's why you called Zenigata, right?
Daisuke Jigen: What? Is that true, Lupin?
Lupin III: Exactly! You've got good intuition.
Goemon Ishikawa: Use poison to fight poison, eh?

Daisuke Jigen: [suddenly angry] Hey... you knew that that girl we met today was the daughter of the Archduke, didn't you?
Lupin III: [scornfully] Oh... you mean I didn't tell you?

[Lupin wakes up]
Daisuke Jigen: Lupin?
Lupin III: Jigen! How long have I been out? How many days has it been?
Daisuke Jigen: Three... three days.
Lupin III: What? The wedding is tomorrow! I've got to...!
[struggles]
Daisuke Jigen: Take it easy! You'll tear open your wound!
Lupin III: Food! Bring me food!
Daisuke Jigen: Food? You mean rice gruel?
Lupin III: I've lost a lot of blood. Anything will do, just bring me lots of it!

Lupin III: The first thing we'll do is escape the castle. Jigen, Goemon, cover us!
Daisuke Jigen: Leave it to us! We'll hold them off here!
Lady Clarisse de Cagliostro: Take care of yourselves, please. You too, Mr. Jigen.
Daisuke Jigen: Wha...?
Lady Clarisse de Cagliostro: Please come back safely. I'll never forget your kindness as long as I live.
Goemon Ishikawa: Go on, get out of here!
Lupin III: Hurry, Clarisse!
Lady Clarisse de Cagliostro: I'm coming!
[Clarisse and Lupin leave]
Daisuke Jigen: She called me MISTER Jigen...
Goemon Ishikawa: She's sweet.
Daisuke Jigen: Let's get started!

[first lines]
Daisuke Jigen: We got five billion in various denominations! It's a shower of bills, look out!
[a pile falls on Lupin]
Lupin III: There's a lot of them, isn't there? More! Bury me with them!
[Jigen buries Lupin with the bills as ordered, but sees Lupin look downcast]
Daisuke Jigen: What's wrong, Lupin?
Lupin III: Dump them.
Daisuke Jigen: WHAT?
Lupin III: These are fakes. Good ones, but fakes.
Daisuke Jigen: These? It can't be! We stole these from the vault of the national casino!
Lupin III: It's Goat Money.
Daisuke Jigen: Goat Money? You mean the phantom counterfeit?
Lupin III: It's even hit the national casino... Jigen! I've decided what our next job will be! First, we're gonna celebrate!
Daisuke Jigen: Damn, damn, damn you!

Daisuke Jigen: I've never heard of the Duchy of Cagliostro.
Lupin III: With a population of 3500, it's the smallest nation in the world to be a member of the U.N.
Daisuke Jigen: And that's the source of the Goat Money?
Lupin III: There's a notorious legend about it, according to those in the know. They call it "The Black Hole of the Counterfeit World."
Daisuke Jigen: Black Hole?
Lupin III: They say that no one has gotten close to it and returned to tell about it.
Daisuke Jigen: Well, I'M sure scared. I'm so scared, in fact, that I'm gonna catch some Zs...

[an injured Lupin gorges himself on food]
Daisuke Jigen: Hey, stupid, don't wolf it down like that! Your stomach won't put up with it!
Lupin III: Shut up! I'll be fine in twelve hours and going like a jet!

[English dub]
Daisuke Jigen: You... you've broken into that castle before?
Arsene Lupin III: That was more than 10 years ago. I was looking for the secret of the Goat bills. I was still a young punk, just starting out.
Daisuke Jigen: And? What happened?
Arsene Lupin III: I got my butt royally kicked! Had to run away with my tail between my legs.


"Lupin the 3rd: The Dashing Entrance of Lupin III (#1.1)" (1977)
[last lines]
Fujiko Mine: Though the ship was built for revenge, 1.2 trillion yen has gone into the ocean. Such a waste!
Arsène Lupin III: You know what was a waste? That annoying Pops, who followed me everywhere, went down with the ship too. I feel so empty inside.
Daisuke Jigen: Flowers fall in a storm. Farewells are a part of life.
Goemon Ishikawa XIII: Rest in peace, Inspector Zenigata.
[all four have a moment of silent prayer]
Arsène Lupin III: [cries] Pops...
Inspector Kouichi Zenigata: HEY! Wait, wait Lupin, wait! Lupin!
Arsène Lupin III: [pleased] We thought you'd died, but it was like Sleeping Beauty! Now our eternal chase begins again! Let's go, guys!

[looking at a model of the boat and its many levels]
Daisuke Jigen: Restaurants... plush theatre... pool... cocktail lounges... ski jump... football field... race track... state-of-the-art security... This isn't a boat, it's frigging Las Vegas with seagulls! Well, I say let the good times roll on!

[Jigen finds Goemon on the ship's deck listening to enka]
Daisuke Jigen: I thought I'd find you here listening to elevator music! It's five years later, Goemon, and you're still listening to that crap!
Goemon Ishikawa XIII: Yes, and five years later you still haven't quit smoking, have you, Jigen? Perhaps you need a little assistance. Here, let me help you...
[slices Jigen's pipe in half]

Daisuke Jigen: Wow, you have a cigarette holder. Nice! I guess you must have stolen it from some other guy while you were holding his OTHER cigarette...
Fujiko Mine: It's nice to see that your wit hasn't lost its edge in five years, Jigen.

[a plane flies overhead, and a man jumps from it... ]
Fujiko Mine: [shocked] Somebody's committing suicide!
Daisuke Jigen: Nah, the plane's too low, check out the attitude. Someone's gonna make a grand entrance!

[at dinner]
Arsène Lupin III, Daisuke Jigen, Goemon Ishikawa XIII, Fujiko Mine: Cheers!
Arsène Lupin III: Sorry I'm late, I had a minor matter to attend to.
Daisuke Jigen: Tell me about it, I'm guessing you had to lift a Van Gogh or even two to pay for all of our tickets!
Arsène Lupin III: Huh?
Daisuke Jigen: Hey, whatever! Any guy who's willing to shell out this kind of cash to treat his old friends to a good time is aces with me!
Arsène Lupin III: Hey, wait a minute, what do you mean? Whoa, back up! What do you mean, treat you?
[Confused, Jigen, Goemon and Fujiko show Lupin the letters he sent them]
Arsène Lupin III: Huh?... Well, I hate to break it to you guys, but I got one too!
[takes out a letter and gives it to Fujiko]
Fujiko Mine: [reading the letter] "My darling Lupin, you've been in my dreams every night for five long years. Oh, darling, I can't bear being apart from you any longer, I simply have to see you immediately. Rendezvous with me at the Sirloin liner, and we shall be together forever. Your love, Fujiko." Oh, please! That doesn't sound anything like me!
Arsène Lupin III: Or smell like you!
[sniffs the letter]
Fujiko Mine: What's that?
Arsène Lupin III: There's not even a trace of Chanel No 5. Trust me, I nearly stuck the whole thing up my nose.
Daisuke Jigen: So this is just a steaming pile of...
Goemon Ishikawa XIII: Very bad karma.
Arsène Lupin III: Exactly, my friends! We've all fallen into someone's very ingenious trap!
Daisuke Jigen: Not you, though! You figured it out for a trap, Lupin, and you waltzed right into it anyway! What the hell's up with that?
Arsène Lupin III: I don't know about it, Jigen, but I like to know who my enemies are, and the sooner they show their hand the sooner I can show them mine!
Goemon Ishikawa XIII: We must remain as vigilant as the owl.
Arsène Lupin III: Exactly...

Daisuke Jigen: Hey, either I'm really loaded, or the ceiling's getting closer...
[points upwards]

Daisuke Jigen: These are hard times for innocent bystanders...


"Lupin the Third: A Woman Called Fujiko Mine: Blood-Soaked Triangle (#1.5)" (2012)
Arsene Lupin III: You're gonna pay dearly for being a grave robber, you know!
Daisuke Jigen: What, and you're not?
Arsene Lupin III: I'll be fine! I'm just a generic robber!

Daisuke Jigen: [being avoided by people] Guess it doesn't matter where I go, there's no hiding my past. It's written on my face.

Arsene Lupin III: Now drop the gun! I've never known a Magnum to fire a seventh round!
Daisuke Jigen: Or a Walther to fire a tenth!
[they grapple]

Arsene Lupin III: Why would you need some deity to tell you how heavy your sins are, when you already know what you've done in this life? Besides, even if you're rewarded with rebirth, there's no guarantee your new life is gonna be a good one.
Daisuke Jigen: Doesn't matter. My future is dark either way.

Daisuke Jigen: She's the reason you're here? You came to this hellhole for her?
Arsene Lupin III: And that oughta tell you just how much she's worth: more than any other treasure I've ever seen!
Daisuke Jigen: Seems to me that all she does is go around spreading trouble!
Arsene Lupin III: If there's no trouble, it's not worth stealing! That's the code of the Lupin family!

Daisuke Jigen: Hey! We're about to be burnt to a crisp here!
Arsene Lupin III: [looks around] It should have a secret exit. Traps like this one pretty much always do, don't they? That way the builders don't have to worry about whoever commissioned it trying to seal them inside. And sure enough, there it is!
Fujiko Mine: It's just an air vent! We can't get out through there!
Arsene Lupin III: Don't get hysterical. This wall opens up. See, there's a keyhole.
Fujiko Mine: It's shaped like... No! Don't even think about it! Do you know how much work it took me to get this?
[the keyhole is peacock-shaped]


"Lupin the 3rd: The Border Is the Face of Farewell (#3.7)" (1978)
Daisuke Jigen: Ooh, a ballerina with balls. I like that...

Daisuke Jigen: What's so great about the States, anyway?

[about to be blindfolded]
Daisuke Jigen: You know where you can put that...?

[about to be executed by a Soviet firing squad]
Daisuke Jigen: What a way to go out...

[last lines]
Daisuke Jigen: [looking at his passport] Mr and Mrs Ivanov...
[throws it in the air]
Daisuke Jigen: Here's a divorce!
[pulls out his gun and shoots through the passport]


"Lupin the 3rd: Black Panther (#1.18)" (1978)
[spying on Conaiseau]
Daisuke Jigen: It sounds like they're getting ready to hit the road. Yeah, you called it, Lupin.
Arsène Lupin III: I still can't figure it, though. This guy's nuts. At least with Pops, it's all, you know, pretty damn... predictable.
Inspector Kouichi Zenigata: [suddenly appears] Well, well!
Arsène Lupin III: Usually, anyway!

Daisuke Jigen: [about Lupin] Everyone has an Achilles heel, and his just happens to be in his pants!

Daisuke Jigen: [looking through binoculars] Hang on a second. On that island up ahead, there's a sign. It looks like it says something like "Nature Camp."
Arsène Lupin III: Nature what? Are you sure you got that right?
Daisuke Jigen: [shocked] You're not gonna believe this... holy crap!
Arsène Lupin III: What is it? What's the matter?
Daisuke Jigen: Well, it's... you gotta see this.
[Lupin looks for himself]
Arsène Lupin III: Wha-wha-wowow! Now THAT's what I call a Nature Camp! Damn, I love my work! Wha-wha-hahaha-wowow! WE'RE GONNA SEE NAKED LADIES!

[about Lupin]
Goemon Ishikawa XIII: He's got the attention span of a flea!
Daisuke Jigen: And a horny teenaged flea at that.


"Lupin the 3rd: What Do You Think of Ukiyoe Blues? (#1.9)" (1977)
[at the museum]
Arsène Lupin III: Well, they sure tightened up the security.
Goemon Ishikawa XIII: No surprise there.
Arsène Lupin III: It's okay. Tomorrow the whole exhibit hits the road again. That's even better in a way, right?
Daisuke Jigen: [appears] Sounds like fun.
Arsène Lupin III: You're in? What turned you into a sentimental fool all of a sudden?
Daisuke Jigen: Nothing. I just figured the sooner we get this charity gig over with, the sooner we can get back to being selfish jerks again.

[the trio notice that the transmitter on the painting is still active despite the painting being buried with Sharaku]
Daisuke Jigen: Hey, what the hell's going on? Weren't you supposed to take the transmitter off the real one?
Arsène Lupin III: I guess I must've forgot. But...
Daisuke Jigen: So that means Goemon's ancestor is walking around on its own.
Arsène Lupin III, Goemon Ishikawa XIII: Huh?

[after tricking Fujiko]
Daisuke Jigen: You know, I still say that broad ain't nothing but trouble. But little moments like these kinda make it all worth while somehow.
Arsène Lupin III: [removes his disguise] I just paid a very high price for this, I have a feeling. But you know, I gotta admit it, fellas, it sure does feel good.


Lupin III: Burning Memory - Tokyo Crisis (1998)
Daisuke Jigen: Oh!
[holding swollen jaw]
Goemon Ishikawa: Does it hurt?
Daisuke Jigen: No, I'm just humming a little song called "Ouch!" How was your sword stolen, anyway?
Goemon Ishikawa: Please do not ask me that question.
Daisuke Jigen: You know I'm right. It was a girl. I'm serious, I can read you like a book, Goemon.
[Goemon blushes]
Daisuke Jigen: Was she a pretty girl? A real pretty girl?

Daisuke Jigen: Forgot to bring any aspirin...
Goemon Ishikawa: You forgot? How could you forget With all the pain you're in?
Daisuke Jigen: You seem to have forgotten you lost your sword there, buddy!

Daisuke Jigen: [to Goemon] I think it's time we kicked some butt.


"Lupin the Third: A Woman Called Fujiko Mine: Dying Day (#1.8)" (2012)
Daisuke Jigen: [Lupin] I remember seeing a guy like you in a movie I watched recently. He was the only one who survived to the very end.

Daisuke Jigen: Why did you save me?
Lupin III: You were being so clumsy in front of me... I didn't plan on doing so, but... maybe, because we almost ended up going to hell together?
Daisuke Jigen: I don't like it.
Lupin III: Don't say that. Eat up! It's potato gnocchi with a special bologna ragu sauce!

Lupin III: This once-unknown fortune teller suddenly became famous in the underworld three years ago.
Daisuke Jigen: A fortune teller who could predict your dying day would be popular indeed.
Lupin III: But that's not the only reason for his fame. All of his clients were people I had robbed. And there's one other interesting person...
[chortles]
Daisuke Jigen: That woman is in this, too?... I don't like it. But I don't want to be indebted to you.

Daisuke Jigen: Hey, I got an idea. Maybe I could dress up in a bikini.
Goemon Ishikawa XIII: ...And what? Scare them into submission?

Daisuke Jigen: Hey, I don't like the sound of this... And don't say anything. You know what I mean.
Goemon Ishikawa XIII: That's cause I have a degree in Jigen-ese.


"Lupin the 3rd: Tutankhamen's 3000 Year Curse (#1.7)" (1977)
Daisuke Jigen: Hey, a little respect if you don't mind! I know these feet like the back of my hand, and when they itch like this something bad always happens! I'd be careful what I say around them, they're very sensitive soles.

Daisuke Jigen: [about Lupin] The guy's obsessed, he could probably bench-press Shaq!


"Lupin the 3rd: The Great Caribbean Adventure (#1.14)" (1978)
Daisuke Jigen: There's got to be something we haven't thought of. I mean, it's not impossible. Whoever pinched that ruby figured it out.
Arsène Lupin III: Sure, that's great, rub it in! Not only is it a personal failure, it's also a professional humiliation!

Daisuke Jigen: Man, don't call me Shirley.


Rupan sansei: Pilot Film (1969) (TV)
[Lupin reaches for a glass of sake... which is shot into splinters by Jigen]
Arsene Lupin III - Cinemascope version: What's the matter, Jigen?
Jigen Daisuke: It's better if you don't drink that sake.
Narrator: Daisuke Jigen: Lupin's partner. His shooting speed is 0.3 seconds. His favourite gun is a .38 caliber Colt Executive, with double action.

Daisuke Jigen: Yeah, I heard of 'em. Did some real damage way back in the Depression - that is, before they got riddled full of holes by the Feds in a shootout.

Daisuke Jigen: [to Clyde] Old man, let me give you a little piece of advice: from now on, just stick to mynah birds. They're a whole lot more reliable than women are.

Daisuke Jigen: Yo, Pops!
Inspector Kouichi Zenigata: Yo yourself, yah damn bastard ayata!

Inspector Kouichi Zenigata: What the hell kind of a partner are you anyway? How could you just let him walk inside like that?

Arsène Lupin III: I know, I know. I never should've accepted that stupid invitation to begin with.
Daisuke Jigen: It's frigging careless, Lupin. How many times do we have to frigging warn yah? But you had to impress frigging Fujiko, and isn't that frigging ironic now?
Arsène Lupin III: You're right. I'm a frigging idiot. I was thinking with my frigging pants and now I'm in big frigging trouble!
