Memorable quotes[edit | edit source]

"Why are you stressed?"
"I have a bad feeling about tonight."
"You're worried about one little spy?"
"What? No, Kenji-san asked me to meet him later. I think he wants to break up."
"My grandmother said you should poison your man every morning before he leaves. Tell him he can have the antidote when he comes home."
"What poison should I use?"
"I'm sure my grandmother can give you something. She doesn't need it anymore."
"She's not worried about your grandfather running away?"
"He can't. He's paralyzed. You have to be very careful with the dosage."

"What happened to your arm?"
"I got in a fight with my mom."
"Looks like she cut you pretty badly."
"She caught me by surprise. She's fast for her age."
"She must have been really mad."
"She thinks that we don't dress properly for ninjas. I'm like, Mom, it's the 60s. Get use to it. And she's like, It's disrespectful. So I said, old people always say that."
"Uh oh."
"Yeah, she went kind of crazy. She came flying across the room and started slashing at me. Finally I fought her off, but I was worried I was going to accidentally stab her. That would have made her really mad."
"You better buy her some chocolates or something."
"Good idea."
