Colonel Shikishima: Look at what they abandoned in their panic, they were afraid! They were too scared, so they hid it away from the public. They forgot all shame and honor, cast off the civilization and science we had created, and shut the lid of the Pandora's Box they themselves had opened.

Kaneda: What's wrong? Have some trouble?

Tetsuo: Yeah. But I already took care of it. And you're too late, you missed the show.

Kaneda: Tetsuo, you had me worried again. I figured you'd be standing here sobbing like a little baby.

Tetsuo: Kaneda, you've always been a pain in the ass, y'know. You've been telling me what to do since we were kids. You always treat me like a kid. You always show up and start bossing me around, and don't you deny it!

Kaneda: And now you're a boss, too... of this pile of rubble.

Tetsuo: KANEDA!

Kaneda: That's Mr. Kaneda to you, punk!

Tetsuo: DIE!

The Colonel: Enough! Open up your eyes and look at the big picture; You're all puppets of corrupt politicians and capitalists. Don't you understand, it's utterly pointless to fight each other.

Kaneda: [when he claims to Ryu he knows who the new subject is] Come on... don't they say the only foolish questions are unasked ones?

Kaneda: [Tetsuo is brutally beating a member of the Clown gang] You're gonna kill him, Tetsuo. You want that?

Tetsuo: I want him more than dead, I'll split his freaking head open!

Kaneda: Just knock it off now! This all happened because you took my bike for a spin. Enough already.

Tetsuo: Shut up! Don't order me around!

Kaneda: We were just worried.

Tetsuo: Why do you always have to try and save me? I could handle it on my own. Yeah, I admit I've gotten beaten before, but I won't always be on the receiving end, you hear that? You understand?

Kaori: Tetsuo, I...

Tetsuo: [crying] Shut up... go away!

Tetsuo: Kaneda? What are you doing in here?

Kaneda: Tetsuo! Are you okay? I'm here for the rescue! Hurry up! What are you? Stupid? If we don't get outta here, those...

[several army soldiers enter the room]

Soldier: There he is! Capture him!

Tetsuo: You keep away!

[Tetsuo uses his telekinetic powers to forcibly blast the soldiers away by lifting the floor, which also throws Kaneda hurtfully]

Kei: Kaneda!

Tetsuo: Oh, that's right! I forgot you were there. There, do you see, Kaneda? I won't be needing you to come to the rescue me ever again, okay? From now on, I'll be in charge of the heroics. So, if you need any saving, just ask, Kanny.

Kaneda: Damn it, Tetsuo! Who the hell do you think you're talking to, ya moron?

Tetsuo: Hah! You don't like what you're hearing, do ya? Makes you angry? So what are you gonna do now? Well, Kaneda? WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO NOW?

Kai: Something seemed strange the second I saw his face. It's odd. He was wearing what looked like a white hospital gown. He acted like a different person. Yamagata asked him if he was really Tetsuo or if he was someone else.
