    • Aku: Say goodbye to your little toy, Jack! (starts bending his sword) Once and for.. (the sword turns to dust) ..huh? A fake! Jack: That's right, Aku! You see, I'm smart and you are pure evil.. and I knew you would cheat. So I had a fake sword made and hid it under that rock over there! (it shows the rock, with a confused minion next to it) Then I hid the real sword right down.. (notices the sword is gone, then looks up to find another minion holding it) Aku: You see, Jack, I knew that you knew I would cheat, so I came prepared. And now you will learn what it means to be a fool! Jack: I am afraid that you are the fool, Aku! Aku: Why? Jack: Because I knew, that you knew, that I knew, that you knew, that I knew you would cheat! (Aku looks on with confusion/shock) So I hid fake swords all over this place! (grins slyly)

    • Jack: One, no superstrength. Two, no evil minions. And three, no shapeshifting. You come in human form. Aku: That was four! Jack: The last one was a two-parter.

    • Jack: That pillar did not move by itself, Aku! Aku: (shiftily) Yes it did.

    • Aku: Oh, put that thing away, Samurai. We all know what's going to happen. You'll swing your sword, I'll fly away, and probably say something like, "I'll be back, Samurai!" And then I'll flutter over the horizon and we probably won't see each for . . . about a week. And then we'll do the same thing again. Jack: Your word play will not trick me, villain! (attacks) Aku: I'll be back, Samurai – you'll see! Bwah-ha-ha-ha. (flies away, reappears) See what I mean?

    • Aku: (dials phone) Bwah-ha-ha-ha! Yes, I can hold. Yes, I would like to place an order for delivery. Aku. I think I'm in the computer. Yes, that's it. I'd like a large . . . uh? What? Extra thick! 30 minutes or it's free – excellent! Bwah-ha-ha-ha!

    • Jack: Then hit me if you can.
      After Aku acknowledges that he should not be using superhuman strength, he and Jack assume stances almost exactly the same as those taken by Morpheus and Neo at the beginning of the sparring program sequence in The Matrix. The following part of their battle includes several references to that scene and others from The Matrix.
