Battle Royale (2000)
Teacher Kitano: Life is a game. So fight for survival and see if you're worth it.
Mitsuko: You just have to fight for yourself; no one's going to save you. That's just life, right?
[Shougo has just finished bandaging Noriko's leg]
Shuya: You know a lot about medicine.
Shougo Kawada: Well, my father was a doctor.
[a few minutes later, Shougo serves Noriko and Shuya food]
Noriko Nakagawa: Wow! This is pretty good!
Shougo Kawada: It should be. My father was a chef.
[later, After escaping the island]
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.
Shuya: No matter how far, run for all you're worth. RUN.
[his last words]
Teacher Kitano: The last one... Cookies sure were good.
Kyouichi Motobuchi: If I survive, can I go home?
Teacher Kitano: Yes, but only if everyone else is dead.
Mitsuko: [dying in a pool of blood after being shot repeatedly by Kiriyama] I just didn't want to be a loser anymore.
Mitsuko: What's wrong with killing? Everyone's got their reasons.
Teacher Kitano: So today's lesson is, you kill each other off till there's only one left. Nothing's against the rules.
Niida: I'm in love with you, for real, from before.
Chigusa: Wow, great. Wash your face and try again, if you survive.
Niida: Wait, you're a virgin, right?
Chigusa: Piss... me... off. God, did I just hear this idiot right?
Chigusa: [dying] God, can I tell him one more thing? You look really cool, Hiroki...
Hiroki Sugimura: You too. You're the coolest girl in the world.
Noriko Nakagawa: [while looking for Nanahara, she finds Mitsuko, sitting in the rain and staring catatonically at Noriko] Mitsuko.
Mitsuko: [Stands up and picks up bag] What's up?
Noriko Nakagawa: I'm looking for Nanahara.
Mitsuko: Got separated?
Shougo Kawada: [shouting] Noriko! Where are you?
Mitsuko: Who's that?
Noriko Nakagawa: Kawada.
Mitsuko: Eh? Two princes protecting you. A real princess.
[Pulls out gun, and aims for Noriko]
Noriko Nakagawa: Mitsuko...
Mitsuko: Die, ugly bitch.
[Sees Kitano, runs away terrified]
Shougo Kawada: There's a way out of this game. Kill yourselves together, here, now. If you can't do that, then don't trust anyone... just run.
[after being shot multiple times by Kotohiki]
Hiroki Sugimura: You're so cute.
Shougo Kawada: Meeting you guys, I finally solved the riddle of Keiko's smile.
Noriko Nakagawa: What's the answer?
Shougo Kawada: Her parting words - Thank you - and then...
Shuya: And then?
[Kawada drops his cigarette]
Noriko Nakagawa: Kawada!
Shougo Kawada: And then - I'm glad I found true friends.
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?
Yukie Utsumi: [while dying after paranoia-fueled shootout] What idiots. We might have all survived. We're all so stupid. *Stupid!*
Mitsuko: [hysterically, while being terrorized at gunpoint by Hirono] I've had it! Why does everybody always gang up on me? What did I do?
Hirono: [kicks her repeatedly] Think about what you did.
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.
Shuya: How should I know? I don't know what any of it means!
Teacher Kitano: Here's your list of friends in the order they died.
Training Video Girl: We have randomly selected weapons to put in your kits, so you might get lucky, and you might not.
[Picks up axe]
Training Video Girl: This one is SUPER lucky.
Shuya: Did you bandage me, Utsumi?
Yukie Utsumi: Yeah.
Yukie Utsumi: [laughing] Never touched a guy before... you like Noriko, huh?
Yukie Utsumi: [smiling] I know all about you, Nanahara. You know what that means?
Shuya: [confused] What?
Satomi Noda - Girls #17: Who? Who did it?
Haruka Tanizawa - Girls #12: Satomi, don't!
Yukie Utsumi: It's just some mistake!
Satomi Noda - Girls #17: We're the only ones here!
[turns the gun into Chisato]
Satomi Noda - Girls #17: Chisato, you cooked it right?
Chisato Matsui - Girls #19: It wasn't me! Haruka cooked it too!
Haruka Tanizawa - Girls #12: Me, poison?
Yukie Utsumi: It was nobody. Cut it out!
Haruka Tanizawa - Girls #12: You're suspicious yourself!
Yukie Utsumi: [tries to stop Haruka] Haruka!
Haruka Tanizawa - Girls #12: Last two nights, you didn't sleep at all... it just means you didn't trust us!
Satomi Noda - Girls #17: Forget my sleeping pills!
Haruka Tanizawa - Girls #12: Insomnia at your age?
Yukie Utsumi: Cut it out! Satomi! Lower that gun!
Training Video Girl: [in Japanese] Hello, everyone in Class B!

Training Video Girl: Congratulations!
Teacher Kitano: [welcoming hand gesture] Thank you!
Satomi Noda - Girls #17: Ouch! It hurts, you assholes! I'm bleeding, damn it!
Chigusa: Shouldn't you be worried about your life, instead of that useless micropenis of yours?
Mitsuko Souma's mother: [very drunkenly] Be strong, Mitsuko. If ya ain't strong, you'll end up just like me.
Man in Instructional Recording: [flamboyantly, as Kitano exercises] BR Radio Exercise time!

Male server: May I take your order?
Shuya Nanahara's father: Just wait.
Male server: That's fine, sir.
Shuya Nanahara's father: I don't know how many resumes I wrote, all for nothing. I'm wiped. They always hang up on me.
Shuya Nanahara's father: [Shuya is concerned, confused; a waitress walks by] Oh, miss, gimme some water?
Female server: Yes, just a minute, please.
Shuya Nanahara's father: You order what you want. You start seventh grade tomorrow, so go for it.
Shuya Nanahara's father: [laughs] I say 'go for it', but I never taught you anything...
Male server: Ready to order - ?
Shuya Nanahara's father: [psychotically] I told you to wait!
Shuya Nanahara's father: [entire restaurant looks; waiter nods and quickly walks away]
[quietly, to Shuya]
Shuya Nanahara's father: Try someplace else?
Shougo Kawada: [about steering a ship] Just keep on going and you'll hit land. Give it a try?

Satomi Noda - Girls #17: [quietly panicked] We're all... gonna die tomorrow, huh?
Yukie Utsumi: Don't start with that. We won't give up until it's over! Okay?
[Oda has been shot multiple times by Kiriyama in the chest]
Toshimori Oda: [laughing] Wow! I survived thanks to my great bullet-proof vest!
[hears noise above and behind him and looks]
Kazuo Kiriyama: [pulls a samurai sword from its scabbard and leaps down to Oda]
Subtitle: Boys, Number 4: Oda, 20 to go.
Hirono: It looks as if someone was there all night. I found a tampon in the toilet. Megumi wasn't on hers... Mitsuko, you started yesterday, right?
Mitsuko: [nervous pause] That doesn't prove anythi...
Hirono: [screaming] Cut the crap, murderer! Fucking all the boys, but had to steal mine! You were pimping Yoshimi! Probably hung 'em both!
Mitsuko: [starts crying] How could you?
Shinji Mimura: Îjima! Îjima!
Kieta Iijima - Boys #2: [Îjima laughs] When we escape, it'll be together!
Satomi Noda - Girls #17: At least - I thought I'd live until tomorrow
Opening speaker: At the dawn of the millennium, the nation collapsed. At 15% unemployment, 10 million were out of work. 800,000 students boycotted the schools. The adults lost confidence and, fearing the youth, eventually passed the Millennium Educational Reform Act, AKA the BR Act...
Niida: [horrified upon shooting Yoshio Akamatsu with crossbow] Oh, it's for real!
Kyouichi Motobuchi: [after seeing the body of Tatsumichi Oki] X=-b over 2a... everybody's serious, huh. Fine then. I'll survive... go to a good school.
[shoots at Shuya and Noriko]
Teacher Kitano: What? Go ahead. Shoot. Nakagawa, you can do it. Nakagawa, you can do it.
Teacher Kitano: [phone call from his daughter] Hello?
Shiori Kitano: Hello, mister.
Teacher Kitano: Oh, Shiori?
Shiori Kitano: Mom's feeling bad again.
Teacher Kitano: On a business trip, can't get home 'til tomorrow.
Shiori Kitano: Huh. Don't bother coming home. Hanging up.
Teacher Kitano: Huh...
Shiori Kitano: Mister, don't breathe like that. Your bad breath even stinks over the phone.
Teacher Kitano: [phone call from his daughter] Hello?... Shiori?... Listen, I won't be coming home again... Listen, if you hate someone, you take the consequences... Irresponsible? Who the hell asked you?
Mitsuko: This is my weapon. I thought it was so-so, but actually, it's not so bad. Found Yoshimi and Kuramoto dead next door - strung up all cozy together. Not my scene! I'll never die like THAT!
Noriko Nakagawa: It's beautiful, even though it's where everyone died.
Shuya: [silently turns and looks at her, walks away to Shougo] You can even steer a ship?
Shougo Kawada: Sure, my dad was a fisherman. AHAHAHAHA.
Teacher Kitano: Sorry - it's against the rules for me to kill, isn't it?
