Fujiko Mine: [gasps] Lupin?

Arsene Lupin III: Alas... only what's left of him.

Fujiko Mine: Hm. What exactly is that supposed to mean?

Arsene Lupin III: [walks to her with a rose] It means, my dear Fujiko, that you are a rose, and I have been pricked by the thorn of your indifference...

Fujiko Mine: "The thorn of my indifference?" Oh, brother...

Arsene Lupin III: [smells the rose] Fatally pricked, and now, almost completely wasted away, my darling.

Fujiko Mine: [chuckles] Fatally pricked, huh? You gotta love karma!

Arsene Lupin III: Yet, there is still one thing that could save me.

Fujiko Mine: What might that be?

Arsene Lupin III: If your petal-like lips would but caress my own unworthy sad ones, I might yet survive, my love.

Fujiko Mine: I would, but you know you'd just prick yourself all over again.

Arsene Lupin III: [throws the rose away] Boy, you're all thorns. And after all I went through to get you that damn Stone!

Inspector Koichi Zenigata: That bum! That rat! He's the real one, all right! So he's still alive, really and truly alive! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I won't die until I get him! I'll never give up! I'll follow you down to Hell, and I'll engrave my name on all your stupid bones!

[Zenigata discovers Lupin's body in a crypt]

Inspector Koichi Zenigata: Who do you think you are, Count Dracula? Well, I read the book, and Dracula gets his in the end, just like you're gonna get yours. Here! Let me treat you a nice "stake" dinner!

[stakes the corpse, which promptly explodes]

Arsene Lupin III: Why, Detective Zenigata! Long time no see, Old Man.

Inspector Koichi Zenigata: Lupin! You're dead! Wait a second, that stiff in the coffin, that was you, right?

Arsene Lupin III: So they say. I'm a little confused myself.

Inspector Koichi Zenigata: They guaranteed that you were deader than a doornail! There wasn't a shadow of a doubt!

Arsene Lupin III: It's news to me. Frankly, I've never felt better in my life.

Inspector Koichi Zenigata: Well, just hold still a second and we can fix that!

[swings a piece of wood at Lupin, who dodges, commencing a chase. By the time Zenigata catches up, Lupin has already reached his escape vehicle]

Arsene Lupin III: Hate to cut this short, but dead or alive, I think it's time I got out of here. Now don't forget to write!

[takes off]

Inspector Koichi Zenigata: Ya little...! I'll be writing "REST IN PEACE" on your tombstone when I'm done with you! That lousy little thief, I knew he was still alive! HAHAHAHAHAHA! You had everyone else falling for it! Not Zenigata! This is one detective you can't shake that easily! This is one guy who will dog your every step to the very gates of Hell!

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?

Mamo: [shows off the people he's cloned] This is the work of 10,000 years. A masterwork, if I say so myself. The leading lights of science, philosophy, art. All under one roof, and all are perfectly real!

Arsene Lupin III: Hm! So, sort of a Noah's Ark?

Mamo: Let's just say that if you've never given any thought about the world, starting now would either be a particularly good idea, or a pathetically pointless one, if you catch my drift, Mr. Lupin.

Arsene Lupin III: Uh?

Mamo: Because the time is nigh, Mr. Lupin, but sadly the guest list is... quite short. Only the elite of history's most brilliant and beautiful people!

Arsene Lupin III: Oh, uh... I'm sorry to hear that.

[laughs hysterically]

Mamo: I imagine you are.

Arsene Lupin III: No, I mean, it's just after all that work... an ugly, demented gnome like you isn't even eligible!

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?

Mamo: Look at this man, Fujiko! This is the man you want to spend the rest of eternity with? This ignorant fool who laughs like a hyena at his own impending doom? I refuse to grant the gift of immortality to one so unworthy!

Fujiko Mine: Well, if that's the way you want to be, you can just count me out, too!

Mamo: Fujiko!

Fujiko Mine: What's the point of being forever young and lovely? It's no fun if I have to sit by and watch him getting old and shriveled up!

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?

Inspector Koichi Zenigata: Get back here! LUPIN! What the hell are you up to?

Arsene Lupin III: Oh, I'd say... at least several hundred feet, with any luck. See ya!

Arsene Lupin III: [chuckles] Bye! Catch you later!

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...

Mamo: The process has its limitations.

Fujiko Mine: Limits?

Mamo: The transfer of the chromosomal data is never accomplished with complete fidelity. There are... anomalies, infinitesimally small in each case, but the cumulative effect of such - chaotic - pollution... can be observed after only a dozen or so generations, and what you see before you is a 130th generation facsimile. I am but a faint, distorted echo of myself.

Arsene Lupin III: But you were always distorted by your obsession.

Mamo: But is it not... everyone's obsession?

Mamo: Obviously, eternal life would be wasted on a vulgarian like that man there.

Arsene Lupin III: [mishears] That's not true... I eat meat!
