Final Fantasy X (2001 Video Game)
Auron: [as Lady Yunalesca prepares to battle them] Now! This is it! Now is the time to choose! Die and be free of pain or live and fight your sorrow! Now is the time to shape your stories! Your fate is in your hands!
Kimahri: Yuna needs Kimahri. Kimahri protect Yuna.
Rikku: Well, I'm fighting!
Wakka: I can't believe we're gonna fight Lady Yunalesca! Gimme a break!
Lulu: You can always run.
Wakka: Hah! I'd never forgive myself-no way! Not if I ran away now. Even in death, ya!
Lulu: Hm. My thoughts exactly.
Tidus: Yuna! This is our story! Now let's see this thing through together.
Tidus: [opening lines] Listen to my story. This... may be our last chance.
Tidus: [voiceover] I thought about a lot of things, like where I was, what I'd gotten myself into. I started to feel light-headed, and then, sleepy. I think I had a dream - a dream of being alone. I wanted someone - anyone - beside me, so I wouldn't have to feel alone anymore.
Maester Seymour Guado: [as Yuna's guardian's step forth] Ah, of course. "Protect the summoner, even at the cost of one's life." The Code of the Guardian. How admirable. Well, if you are offering your lives, I will have to take them.
Yuna: Maester Seymour. I trust my guardians with my life, but they are also my friends. I will not stand by and watch them be hurt.
[She brings out her staff]
Yuna: I will fight you, too!
Tidus: All right!
Wakka: M-Maester Seymour!
Maester Seymour Guado: So be it!
Tidus: They said Seymour went to Macarena Temple.
Wakka: [correcting him] "Macalania" Temple.
Tidus: Wait. This is a dream?
Tidus: A dream? Are you crazy? I don't have time to be dreaming now!
Fayth: You're wrong. It's not that you're dreaming; you *are* a dream.
Tidus: Huh? Wait a sec.
Fayth: Long ago, there was a war.
Tidus: Yeah, with machina, right?
Fayth: Yes. A war between Zanarkand and Bevelle. Bevelle's machina assured their victory from the start. Spira had never seen such power. The summoners of Zanarkand didn't stand a chance. Zanarkand was doomed to oblivion. That's why we tried to save it - if only in a memory.
Tidus: What did you do?
Fayth: The remaining summoners and the townspeople that survived the war... They all became fayth - fayth for the summoning.
Tidus: The summoning... you mean Sin.
Fayth: No, I mean this place. A Zanarkand that never sleeps.
Fayth: The dreams of the fayth summoned the memories of the city. They summoned all the buildings, all the people that lived there.
Tidus: The people... What, they're all dreams? Me, too?
Fayth: Yes, you're a dream of the fayth. You, your father, your mother, everyone. All dreams. And if the fayth stop dreaming...
Tidus: No! So what if I'm a dream? I... I like being here.
Fayth: We've been dreaming so long... we're tired. Would you and your father... would you let us rest? Both you and your father have been touched by Sin. Sin, the one around whom all Spira - the spiral - revolves.
Tidus: What are you saying?
Fayth: You two are more than just dreams now. Just a little more, and maybe... Maybe you are the dream that will end our dreaming at last.
[Tidus wakes up]
Yuna: But... what of Sin? I am a summoner, my lord, like my father before me! I am on a pilgrimage to stop the death that Sin brings. Are you... Are you telling me that, too, is futile? Grand Maester Mika, I am not alone! All the people who have opposed Sin... their battles, their sacrifices - were they all in vain?
Maester Mika: Not in vain. No matter how many summoners give their lives, Sin cannot be truly defeated. The rebirth cannot be stopped. Yet the courage of those who fight gives the people hope. There is nothing futile in the life and death of a summoner.
Auron: Never futile... but neverending.
Maester Mika: Indeed, that is the essence of Yevon.
Yuna: [in disbelief] Lord Mika!
Maester Mika: Yevon is embodied by eternal, unchanging continuity, summoner.
Yuna: No... that can't be right!
Maester Mika: Those who question these truths - they are traitors!
Yuna: Lord Mika!
Wakka: [upon finding Tidus trying to watch Jyscal's sphere; holding him in a headlock] Yeah, yeah! She'll tell us when she's ready, so hold your chocobos till then. *Ya?*
Auron: [responding to Tidus' query about Jecht] It depends on what you mean by "alive". He is... no longer human. But then, I could feel something of Jecht there in that shell, didn't you? You must have felt him when you came into contact with Sin.
Tidus: [realizing what Auron is saying] It can't be...
Auron: It is. Sin is Jecht.
Tidus: [unable to believe it] No! That's ridiculous! No way! I don't believe you!
Auron: [unfazed] But it *is* the truth. You'll see for yourself. Come with me.
Tidus: And if I say no?
Auron: Every story must have an ending.
Tidus: [irritated] I don't care about your stories!
Auron: I see. Sorry you feel that way. Fine, then. Come or don't come. It's your decision.
Tidus: [yells in frustration] What am I supposed to say? You tell me it's *my* decision! But I don't have a choice, do I? *You're* the only one who can tell me what's going on here, anyways! I have to go with you! I *have* to!
Auron: Irritating, I know. Or are you afraid?
Auron: [to Sin] You are sure?...
Auron: [to Tidus] This is it. This is your story. It all begins here.
Maester Seymour Guado: [appearing in front of Tidus and Rikku] Ah, the son of Jecht.
Tidus: Rikku, run ahead and tell Auron!
Rikku: You are not fighting him alone!
Tidus: Just go! *Go!*
Maester Seymour Guado: Now is your time to die. Prepare yourself, son of Jecht.
Tidus: Not if I can help it!
Kimahri Ronso: [approaching with the others] Save some for Kimahri!
Maester Seymour Guado: [noticing Yuna] Ah, Lady Yuna. It is a pleasure.
[Yuna gets ready to send Seymour to the Farplane]
Maester Seymour Guado: A sending? So soon? Let me say something to the last Ronso before I leave. Your's was... truly a galant race. They threw themselves at me to bar my path. One... after another...
Kimahri Ronso: [realizing what Seymour is saying] No...
Maester Seymour Guado: You could end the suffering of this poor Ronso.
Yuna: I don't understand you!
Maester Seymour Guado: Allow Kimahri to die and release him from his suffering. Spira, is consumed by the spiral of death. To destroy - to *heal* Spira - I will become Sin with your help Lady Yuna. Come, Lady Yuna.
Auron: Don't listen to him!
Maester Seymour Guado: [to Tidus] Once I become Sin, your father will be free again.
Tidus: [frusturated] Ah, what do *you* know?
[takes his sword and rushes towards Seymour]
Maester Seymour Guado: Pitiful mortal...
[the unsent Seymour begins transforming into Seymour Flux]
Maester Seymour Guado: Your hope ends here! And your meaningless existence with it!
[after defeating Seymour Flux]
Tidus: [exhausted] And *stay* up there!
[after defeating Seymour on Mt. Gagazet]
Yuna: He will become Sin... with my help? With my help, Sir Jecht will be free once again once.
Auron: Lies. Forget them.
Yuna: You know something! Tell me!
Tidus: Sin's... my old man.
Wakka: [stunned] You hit your head?
Tidus: My old man's Spira's suffering.
Yuna: Even knowing... that Sin is your father... you know... I must...
Tidus: Yeah... Let's go get him!
Lulu: You would fight your own father?
Tidus: No problem there...
Wakka: Are you sure this isn't some toxin dream?
[Tidus shakes his head]
Wakka: That means... Chappu... I'll just pretend I heard nothing. I'm confused, ya? Why'd everything turn out like this?
Auron: We'll find out soon once we reach Zanarkand.
Lulu: No matter how dark the night, morning always comes, and our journey begins anew.
Auron: [after defeating Ultima Weapon] That was not Omega. Just a shadow born from Omega's wrath.
Jecht: Hah! You got tall, but you're all bones! You eating right, boy?
[Tidus is silent. Rikku looks at him]
Jecht: You've really grown.
Tidus: Yeah, but you're still bigger.
Jecht: Well, I am Sin, you know.
Tidus: That's not funny.
Tidus: Who is this Yu Yevon guy?
Lulu: Lady Yunalesca also mentioned him.
Rikku: Wait, gramps! Who's Yu Yevon?
Maester Yo Mika: He who crafts the souls of the dead into unholy armor. An armor called Sin! Clad in it, Yu Yevon is invincible. And the only thing that could have pierced that armor, you have destroyed! Nothing can stop it now...
[vanishes in a cloud of pyreflies]
Wakka: [angrily] Bah! Disappear on us, will ya? Rotten son of a shoopuf!
Jecht: You'll cry. You're gonna cry. You always cry. See? You're crying.
Tidus: [sobbing] I hate you, Dad.
Jecht: Save it for later.
Maester Seymour Guado: [versus Seymour Omnis; when Yuna summons Anima] You would dare oppose me as well? So be it!
Lady Yunalesca: [after the group defeats Yunalesca] If I die, so does the Final Aeon. And with it, Spira's only hope.
Tidus: Then we'll find Spira a new hope!
Lady Yunalesca: Fool. There is no other way. Even if there was... even if you did destroy Sin... Yu Yevon the immortal would only create Sin anew.
Tidus: [confused] Yu Yevon?
Lady Yunalesca: Ah... Zaon... forgive me... Spira has been robbed of the light of hope; all that remains is sorrow.
[Lady Yunalesca dies]
[about Tidus and Jecht]
Wakka: Hating your own father, huh? Sounds like a luxury to me. I don't remember my parents. Can't say how I feel about 'em.
Lulu: I... I was five then... so I remember mine, a little.
Wakka: [punches the floor] Dammit! Sin just takes everything away from us!
Yuna: My father... my father wanted... to make Spira's sorrow go away. Not just cover it up with lies!
Lady Yunalesca: Sorrow cannot be abolished. It is meaningless to try.
Yuna: My father... I loved him. So I... I will live with my sorrow, I will live my own life! I will defeat sorrow, in his place. I will stand my ground and be strong. I don't know when it will be, but someday... I will conquer it. And I will do it without... false hope.
Tidus: [imitating Maester Mika] "Such thinking is very unbecoming of a summoner." Sound like Mika?
Yuna: [as the two laugh] That's not very nice, you know!
Tidus: [as Jecht transforms into Braska's Final Aeon, possessed by Yu Yevon; draws sword] I promise this'll be quick! Hit me with all you got, Dad!
Tidus: This is my story. It'll go the way I want it... or I'll end it here.
Tidus: [about to fight Yu Yevon] Guys. This is the last time we fight together, okay?
Tidus: What I'm trying to say is... after we beat Yu Yevon... I'll disappear.
Lulu: What are you talking about?
Tidus: I'm saying goodbye!
Rikku: Not now!
Tidus: [brings out sword] I know it's selfish, but this is my story!
Tidus: I'm not done talking to you! Don't you run away!
Auron: [walking away] *You're* the one running.
Auron: [Maester Seymour finds the group, surrounded by bodyguards, one of them carrying Maester Kinoc's corpse]
Tidus: [to Seymour] Why, you - !
Maester Seymour Guado: I have saved him. He was a man who craved power. And great power he had, but he feared losing it. Trembling at unseen enemies, he spent his days scheming petty schemes, chased by his fears, never knowing rest. You see... now he has no worries, he has been granted sleep eternal. Death is a sweet slumber, all the pain of life is gently swept away. Ah, yes.
[Seymour turns to Yuna]
Maester Seymour Guado: So you see... if all life were to end in Spira, all suffering would end, don't you see? Do you not agree? That, Yuna, is why I need you. Come, Lady Yuna. Come with me to Zanarkand, the lost city of the dead. With death on our side, we will save Spira, and for this... I will take away from you your strength, Yuna, your life, and become the next Sin. I will *destroy* Spira! I will *save* it!
Tidus: You're totally *nuts!*
Tidus: [to Auron] Hey, you! Don't just stand there! All of this is *your* fault! Getting swallowed up by Sin, ending up here in Spira, not being able to get back to Zanarkand - everything, *everything!* I'm telling you, it's all your fault!
[Tidus begins disappearing, Yuna shakes her head 'no']
Tidus: Yuna, I have to go.
[Yuna shakes her head 'no']
Tidus: I'm sorry I couldn't show you Zanarkand.
Rikku: We're gonna see you again.
[Yuna runs after Tidus, but goes right through him and falls to ground]
Yuna: [stands up] I love you.
[Tidus turns and hugs Yuna, walks through her and runs and jumps into air and disappears, joining Jecht]
Auron: [when fighting in the Via Purifico] I hate this place.
Tidus: [discovering Seymour inside Sin] Don't you *ever* give up?
Maester Seymour Guado: Sin has chosen me. I am part of Sin. I am one with Sin forever. Immortal!
Tidus: Sin just absorbed you.
Maester Seymour Guado: I will learn to control it from within. I have all the time in the world. Since you were gracious enough to dispose of Yunalesca, the only means of destroying Sin is forever gone! Now, nothing can stop us!
Tidus: Well, *we* can.
Maester Seymour Guado: [Seymour has assimilated with the Mortiphasms to become Seymour Omnis] By all means, try! You should thank me! Your death means your father's life!
Cid: The final showdown with Sin. I say let's get this show on the road!
[while imprisoned in Bevelle... ]
Tidus: [struggling to get out of his cage] Lemme outta here! I want out *now!* You hear me?
Wakka: [to Rikku] How come you speak Al Bhed?
Wakka: [to Tidus and Lulu] Why?
Tidus: Uh, well...
Rikku: [deciding to reveal her lineage] Because... I'm Al Bhed, and that... was my brother.
Wakka: [to Tidus and Lulu] You knew?
[They both nod]
Wakka: Why didn't you tell me?
Lulu: We knew you'd be upset.
Wakka: [disgusted] This is great! I can't believe I've been traveling with an Al Bhed! A heathen!
Rikku: You're wrong! We have nothing against Yevon!
Wakka: But you Al Bhed use the forbidden machina! You know what that means? Sin was born because people used machina!
Rikku: You got proof? Show me proof!
Wakka: [scoffing] It's in Yevon's teachings! Not that *you'd* know!
Rikku: That's not good enough! Yevon says this, Yevon says that! Can't you think for yourself?
Wakka: Well, then, you tell me! Where did Sin come from, huh?
Rikku: I... I don't know!
Wakka: Hmph! You bad-mouth Yevon, and that's all you can come up with?
Rikku: But... that doesn't mean you should do whatever they say without thinking! Nothing will ever change that way!
Wakka: Nothing has to change!
Rikku: You want Sin to keep coming back? There might be a way to stop it, you know!
Wakka: Sin will be gone once we atone for our past mistakes!
Rikku: When? How?
Wakka: [shaking his fist at Rikku] If we keep faith in Yevon's teachings it will be gone one day!
Rikku: [realizing that it is hopeless at the moment] Why do I even bother?
Rikku: [after Yuna escapes] Cover your eyes!
[Rikku tosses something, and a bright light goes off. In the ensueing chaos, the group escapes]
Wakka: [bewildered] Wh-What was *that?*
Rikku: An Al Bhed flashbomb!
Tidus: Lemme go! I'm gonna *kill* that Seymour!
Kimahri: Yuna said leave! We leave!
Lulu: We'll join up with her later!
Auron: Break through!
Maester Seymour Guado: [Seymour, defeated, falls to his knees. Yuna walks forward] Yuna... you would pity me now?
[He falls on his back, dead. Yuna rushes to the dead body and closes his eyes. Tromell and two Guado escorts suddenly enter]
Tromell Guado: Maester Seymour! What has happened here?
Wakka: [stunned] What... What have I done...?
Tidus: [as the Guado check Seymour's body] Wait a minute! It's not our fault at all! Seymour struck first; he's the bad guy!
Tromell Guado: Y-You did this?
Auron: Yuna. Send him.
Tromell Guado: [angered] No, stop! Stay away from him, traitors!
[the Guado carry Seymour's body out of the chamber. Yuna falls to her knees]
Yuna: [in disbelief] Traitors...?
Wakka: We're finished.
Tidus: Now, hold on! Seymour's the bad guy, right? We'll just tell everyone what happened!
Auron: It won't be that easy - let's get out of here.
[after getting washed up at an unknown desert area, Tidus, Lulu, and Auron try to find the others. Tidus finds Wakka sitting under a makeshift canopy]
Tidus: [running over] Wakka! You okay?
Wakka: [nods] Where's Yuna?
[Tidus and Lulu look at each other, but they, along with Auron, say nothing]
Wakka: [kicking a metal pillar] *Dam*mit! First, I lose Yuna, then I'm ambushed by machina! Great day I'm having.
[Further away, Tidus finds Kimahri trying - and failing - to scale a steep sand dune]
Kimahri: [shaking his head] Yuna... gone.
Tidus: It's not your fault, Kimahri!
[after more searching, they run into Rikku]
Rikku: [waving] Oh! Hey, guys! Where's Yunie?
Lulu: [despondent] Gone... Some guardian I am.
Rikku: Um... There's something I wanna tell you, but promise you won't say anything.
[Wakka glares at her]
Rikku: No glaring, either! I know where we are. We're on Bikanel Island. There's a place us Al Bhed call "Home" here. Yunie's there, I'm sure of it! Other Al Bhed must've come and rescued her!
Wakka: "Rescued"? You mean "kidnapped"!
Tidus: What does it matter, as long as she's safe?
Rikku: That's right! Anyway, I will take you there - if you promise that you won't tell anyone about it. Especially not Yevonites, okay? You know they don't like us Al Bhed. Who knows what they'll do if they knew?
Wakka: Gimme a break! What're you accusing Yevon of this time?
Rikku: Yevon did something really horrible to us in the past.
Wakka: Well, you Al Bhed must've deserved it!
Tidus: [yells in frustration] Can't you guys... talk about this later?
Rikku: Just promise that you won't tell anyone about this place, okay?
Tidus: Come on, Wakka!
Wakka: [giving in] All right, I promise! Lead the way!
Rikku: [upon encountering a Dark Flan] Heeey! Say, is that edible?
Wakka: [visiting his brother Chappu in the Farplane] Yo, Chappu! Meant to come see you earlier, ya? Sorry. I know you won't hold it against me. I gave up the game. I'm a guardian from here on, you know? This guy - looks a lot like you - showed up. Travelling with him, I thought, maybe... you were still alive somewhere, ya? But, then again, here you are on the Farplane. Guess your place is here. So... how you been? Oh! That guy I told you about? I gave him your sword. He likes it.
Wakka: [encountering a Behemoth] How many steaks you think we can get outta this?
Tidus: [encountering an Adamantoise] This isn't just a rock, is it?
Tidus: What do you want?
Auron: It was a bad call. Your team lost because of you.
Tidus: You came to say *that?*
Tidus: [voiceover] How many died today? People die, and Yuna dances. When will she stop dancing? When will it stop? Yuna won't stop dancing - not until Sin is gone. Those were my thoughts then... I think.
Yuna: [explaining to Tidus how she knows about his father's Jecht Shot move] Sir Jecht showed it to me when I was a child. He called it the "Sublimely Magnificent Jecht Shot Mark III".
Tidus: Stupid name, huh? You know what? There is no "Mark I" or "Mark II", you know? My old man said the name "Mark III" was just something to hook the crowd. He said they'd come back every night expecting to see Mark I and Mark II. And, they really did come back.
Maester Kelk Ronso: The high court of Yevon is now in session. Summoner Yuna, you took an oath to protect the people of Yevon, no?
Maester Kelk Ronso: Then consider: you have inflicted dire injury upon Maester Seymour Guado, conspired with the Al Bhed and joined in their insurection. These are traitorous crimes that disturb the order of Yevon. Tell this court what possessed you to come to such violence.
Yuna: Your Grace. The real traitor... is Maester Seymour! He killed his father Jyscal with his own hands!
Maester Kelk Ronso: What is this?
Maester Seymour Guado: Hm? Hadn't you heard?
Yuna: Not only that - Maester Seymour... is already dead!
Tidus: [sometimes when fighting a Tonberry] Uh... I think have a bad feeling about this.
Kid: [referring to Al Bhed] I want a mask like his, but Mommy says only the Al Bhed wear them. I wanna be an Al Bhed when I grow up!
Rikku: Where are you from?
Tidus: Zanarkand. I'm a blitzball player.
[pauses, then mimes a kick]
Tidus: Star player of the Zanarkand Abes!
Rikku: Did you... hit your head or something?
Tidus: Um, *you* guys hit me?
Rikku: Oh, right... Do you remember anything before that?
Tidus: [voiceover] So I told her everything there was to tell about Zanarkand - about life there, blitzball, and Sin's attack; and about how me and Auron were engulfed in this light.
Lulu: Goodbye, Chappu. You always said I looked grumpy, but those were the happiest days of my life.
Auron: [seeing Evrae, the guardian wyrm of Bevelle] The red carpet has teeth.
Yuna: No, we will not flee. We will fight, and continue on.
Maester Kelk Ronso: You have been branded a traitor, but still you would fight Sin? Lost to the temple, hated by the people, yet you continue your pilgrimage? Everything lost! What do you fight for?
Yuna: I fight for Spira. The people long for the Calm. I can give it to them. It's all I can give. Defeating Sin, ending pain... this I can do.
Maester Kelk Ronso: [pause, shakes head] Even sacrificing yourself?
Maester Kelk Ronso: [turns to the Ronso] Ronso, let them pass!
Maester Kelk Ronso: [turns back to Yuna] Summoner Yuna, your will is stronger than steel. Tempered steel that even the mightiest Ronso could not hope to bend. Yuna, we bow to your will! Now go! The scared heights of Gagazet welcomes you.
Yuna: Everyone... everyone has lost something precious. Everyone here has lost homes, dreams, and friends. Everybody... Now, Sin is finally dead.
[the crowd applaudes]
Yuna: Now, Spira is ours again. Now, working together, we can make new homes for ourselves, and new dreams. Although I know the journey will be hard, we have lots of time. Together, we will rebuild Spira. The road is ahead of us, so let's start out today.
[the crowd applaudes. Wakka, Lulu, Rikku, and Kimahri look on as their friend continues]
Yuna: Just, one more thing: the people and the friends that we have lost, or the dreams that have faded...
[Past scenes from the game flash by, many of them involving Tidus]
Yuna: ...Never forget them.
Tidus: It's tough...
Tidus: ... when your father's famous.
Lulu: Wakka's... a bit lacking in the imagination department.
Tidus: [laughing] Thanks, Lulu. I'll keep that in mind.
Wakka: [about Operation Mi'ihen] But, using machina - that's bad, isn't it?
Maester Seymour Guado: Pretend you didn't see them.
Wakka: [Everyone - except for Tidus and Auron - gasps] Beg your pardon, but *that's* not something a Maester should say!
Maester Seymour Guado: Then pretend I didn't say it.
Wakka: [disbelieving] You're kidding!
Maester Yo Mika: Spira has lost its only hope. Destruction is inevitable. Yu Yevon's spiral of death will consume us all. I have no desire to watch Spira die.
Yuna: It won't die!
Yuna: Wait! Sin is reborn when Yu Yevon merges with an aeon, isn't that right? If I summon an aeon, Yu Yevon will join with it. But at first... it'll be small, won't it?
Tidus: Yeah... then, we might be able to beat it without the Final Summoning.
Yuna: I don't know. What if Yu Yevon jumps again?
Tidus: Then we'll take it down again. We'll fight him until there's no place left to run!
Wakka: You here to pray for victory, too?
Luca Goer 1: Us? Pray? Who needs to pray? The Luca Goers always win!
Maester Kinoc: Come out. Your sentence has been decided.
Auron: "Sentence"? Don't you mean "execution"?
Maester Kinoc: Really, now. What person would execute a dear friend?
Auron: *You* would.
Auron: Summoners challenge the bringer of death, Sin, and die doing so. Guardians give their lives to protect their summoner. The fayth are the souls of the dead. Even the maesters of Yevon are unsent. Spira is full of death... only Sin is reborn, and then only to bring more death. It is a cycle of death, spiraling endlessly.
Tidus: [to Wakka and Rikku, who have been thrown in the underwater section of the dungeon] What's our sentence?
Wakka: Think they expect us to give up and die down here.
Tidus: [groans] Well, *that's* a lame way to kill someone!
Auron: [in a flashback] Where is the sense in all this? Braska believed in Yevon's teachings and died for them! Jecht believed in Braska and gave his life for him!
Lady Yunalesca: They chose to die... because they had hope.
Lulu: Amazing. Simply amazing. You make up one theory after another, refusing to face the simple truth. Sin didn't take Chappu anywhere. Sin crushed him and left him on the Djose shore. Your brother won't just "pop back." Oh, and one more thing. No matter how much you want it, no one can take Chappu's place. No one can replace Sir Jecht, for that matter. And there's no replacement for Lord Braska, either. It's pointless to think about it... and sad.
Auron: You remind me of myself. Before, the closer I came to Zanarkand, the more I wondered... when we arrive, Braska will call the Final Aeon... He will fight Sin, then die. I thought my mind was made up long before. But when I stood here, my resolve wavered.
Wakka: Huh, never would've figured. Legendary guardians choke sometimes, too, ya?
Auron: Legendary guardian? I was just a boy. A boy about your age, actually. I wanted to change the world, too. But I changed nothing. That is my story.
Auron: Enough! Dwelling in the past is futile!
Rikku: Hey! You don't have to say it like that!
Auron: You want to waste time listening to her regrets?
Cid: No mistakes, or I'm gonna tear up that mop you call hair!
Brother: Not worry. Me... take you there. No problem, ya?
Wakka: [after the group describes the plan to defeat Sin] Sure it's against the rules and all, but who's keeping track, ya? Yeah?
Wakka: [after the Al Bhed blow up their Home] Hey - don't look so down! BOOM! Hahaha! Like happy festival fireworks, ya?
Rikku: [upset] You can *cram* your happy festival, you - *big meanie!*
Wakka: [when Tidus talks to him] Why didn't I just shut my big mouth...?
Lulu: [to Tidus] I shouldn't have to say this, but don't fall in love with her.
[after witnessing an argument about Tidus between Wakka and Lulu]
Tidus: [to Wakka] Scary!
Auron: [while fighting Seymour in his first unsent form] Although he was not the man I once knew, Kinoc was still my friend, Seymour! You will pay for his death!
[during an attack from Sin, en route to Kilika, two crewmen ready the harpoons]
Wakka: What do you think you're doing? Stick a harpoon in him and we'll all get dragged under!
S.S. Liki crewman: Sin's heading for Kilika! We gotta distract it!
S.S. Liki crewman: [to Yuna] Our families are in Kilika! Forgive us, Lady Summoner!
[after a brief pause, Yuna approves use of the harpoons]
Wakka: Wait! Oh, boy...
Lulu: [to Lady Ginnem's spirit] There is no human left in you now, is there? Very well, then. Allow me to perform my last duty to you. My last as your guardian.
Lulu: [after Lady Ginnem is sent] Strange. I thought it would be sadder, somehow. Maybe I've gotten used to farewells.
Wakka: You're stronger now.
Lulu: Wakka, I hope you're right.
Tidus: [encountering a Don Tonberry] Uh... I have a bad feeling about this!
Auron: [after Omega Weapon's defeat] Find your peace on the Farplane. Leave Spira to the living.
Cid: Yee-haw! Here we go!
Tidus: Every blitzer knows: when you got the ball, you gotta score!
[Tidus and Lulu are riding on a snowmobile toward Macalania Temple shortly after Wakka's bigoted, angry reaction to discovering that Rikku is an Al Bhed]
Lulu: I hope that you're not too mad at Wakka.
Tidus: Hey, not at all.
Lulu: Thank you.
Tidus: Say, what do you think of Rikku?
Lulu: Me? She's... fun to be with.
Tidus: That all?
Lulu: Well, I can tell she's not a bad person.
Tidus: Yeah. You know what the problem is? She's just another Al Bhed to Wakka. Wakka's head is as hard as a rock. I bet it's because of Yevon. Or, you know, something like that.
Lulu: Well, there's more to it than that. Wakka doesn't like the Al Bhed because of his brother Chappu.
Tidus: Oh, he used a machina weapon, right? And got killed by Sin.
Tidus: Killed by my old man. Damn you, Jecht.
Tidus: Oh, nothing! Hey... can someone, like, a human become Sin ever?
Lulu: I can't say that I know, but why?
Tidus: Just a thought.
Lulu: Sin is the punishment for, and the incarnation of, crimes we have committed.
Tidus: So, no one really knows what it is?
Lulu: There's no need to know, so no one asks. You run or you fight. That is really all you can do. There's no sense brooding over it.
Tidus: What, that's all? I mean, you don't even wonder?
Lulu: [astonished] You really do come from a world where there is no Sin, like you say.
[Tidus and Rikku are riding on a snowmobile toward Macalania Temple shortly after Wakka's bigoted, angry reaction to discovering that Rikku is an Al Bhed]
Tidus: Sorry about Wakka.
Rikku: He didn't have to be so mean, yeah? I almost cried.
Tidus: Uh... Rikku?
Rikku: [falsely cheerful] Just kidding! It's okay. At least you're still nice. Hey, do I look like Yunie, you think?
Rikku: Well, my dad's sister is Yunie's mother, you get it?
Tidus: Ah! I had no idea! If you say so.
Tidus: Okay! I guess you're guarding your family, then.
Rikku: Yuna's not the only one that I want to protect.
Rikku: We Al Bhed want to protect all of the summoners, you know? Summoners are... well, you could say that... they sacrifice themselves to, well... to bring happiness to Spira.
Tidus: What do you mean?
Tidus: "Sacrifice themselves"?
Rikku: You know, the pilgrimage... it, uh, takes a lot out of you.
Tidus: Oh, right. But you know. Yuna's real serious about being a summoner. For Yuna, well the pilgrimage kinda means everything to her. You are going to help her, too, aren't you, Rikku?
Tidus: So you shouldn't say that Yuna's sacrificing herself.
[Rikku holds onto his tighter]
Rikku: I hope you're right.
Yuna: Hey, watch!
Tidus: Hey, you got pretty good.
Yuna: [looks at Tidus] You sound sad.
Tidus: Yeah, maybe.
Yuna: Wanna scream?
Tidus: I really don't think that's gonna help this time.
Tidus: [after hearing about the Chocobo Eater] A large fiend, huh? Let's get 'em!
Tidus: It's the right thing to do!
Auron: "It's the right thing to do"...?
[Auron starts chuckling]
Tidus: [confused] What'd I say *now?*
Auron: Jecht said that a lot, too. And everytime he said it, it meant trouble for Braska and me.
Lulu: [to Tidus] You truly are clueless. Are you sure it's just your memory that's the problem? The dead need guidance. Filled with grief over their own death, they refuse to face their fate. They yearn to live on, and resent those still alive. You see, they envy the living. And in time, that envy turns to anger, even hate. Should these souls remain in Spira, they become fiends that prey on the living. Sad, isn't it? The Sending takes them to the Farplane, where they may rest in peace.
[Tidus and Tuna enter Baaj Temple's inner sanctum where a beautiful woman appears above the fayth statue]
Yuna: You are Maester Seymour's mother?
Anima: So you know, yet still you seek my aid. My son... do you not hate him?
[Tidus and Yuna hesitate]
Anima: It is all right. He is the one who sowed the seeds of hatred. He is to blame. But I am at fault for letting him become what he was. He was always alone... half Guado, half man. I wanted to give him the strength to live by himself. And so I became a fayth. But because I let him taste power, he began to thirst for more. He was not satisfied with my aeon. He wanted more... more power.
Tidus: And he found Sin.
Anima: Yes. Come, summoner. I will bestow you with my power: The Dark Aeon, Anima. Destroy Sin, and my son's obsession with it. Though it is small recompense for what I did to him.
