Quotes Mirai: You did it again. You tried to hit me with your bullet train even after Mom told you not to.
Kun: But it wasn't a bullet train!
Mirai: You aren't supposed to use a bullet train to hit people.
Kun: It was a Super Azusa.
Mirai: [angrily] I don't care what kind it was!
Mirai: And why can't you be a little nicer to Mom?
Kun: I don't know, I just can't.
Mirai: It's her one day off from work. She doesn't get many and she has to spend it fighting with you. Come on, try.
Kun: [sniffling] I know... I'm not cute.
Mirai: Huh?
Kun: [crying, wipes tear from his eye] Both Baby Mirai and Yukio are really cute. Not me. I know I'm not that cute anymore.
[continues sobbing]
Mirai: Oh come on, that's not true. You're very cute!
[walking away]
Mirai: You're the cutest! Adorable!
[crying harder; runs away]
