Shuya: You even know how to drive a boat?

Shougo Kawada: Hey, my father was a fisherman.

Kayoko Kotohiki - Girls #8: [in despair] You never said a thing!... What am I supposed to do now?

Mitsuko: [emerging from the shadows] You die with him.

Shougo Kawada: [Noriko wakes up abruptly] You OK?

Noriko Nakagawa: I had a dream...

Shougo Kawada: What dream?

Noriko Nakagawa: I was alone with Kitano on an empty riverbank.

Shougo Kawada: Must've been scary.

Noriko Nakagawa: But Kitano just seemed lonely.

Shougo Kawada: Hmmm.

Noriko Nakagawa: Before this, I always just thought of myself as normal. I'd have a normal marriage, age normally, just like my mom... but when this game started, I realized - it's just that I was sheltered.

Shougo Kawada: Some things are better not to know.

Teacher Kitano: Are my classes boring?

Noriko Nakagawa: Yes.

Teacher Kitano: How dare you!

Noriko Nakagawa: [chuckles]

Teacher Kitano: I go into class, you guys look like a pile of potatoes. Slapping them around helped me tell them apart, even got to like them. But now, not anymore. Now you touch a student, you're fired. Can't even lose it when a student stabs you!

Noriko Nakagawa: I'll tell you just one thing.

Teacher Kitano: What?

Noriko Nakagawa: That knife that stabbed you... actually I keep it in my desk at home. When I picked it up, I wasn't sure... but now, for some reason, I really treasure it. It's our secret, okay? Just between us.

Teacher Kitano: Listen, Nakagawa.

Noriko Nakagawa: Yes?

Teacher Kitano: What do you think a grown-up should say to a kid now?
