      • (Episode Theme Quote Opener)
        Chiharu R.: Nothing stays the same. Every story has its ending. It's hard to accept sometimes but that's the reality. One season ends, and another begins.

        (Episode Theme Quote Closer)
        Makoto: Once it passes, it'll feel like it went by in a flash.
        Yumi: Someday, you'll look back at it and laugh.
        Yoshihiko: But that feeling. That feeling will never disappear. You'll always carry it deep in your heart.
        Aki: The most important season is the one we're in now. It's our season.
        Chiharu: And with the ending of one season, another new one begins.

      • Kyoichi: That was a really cute wood carving. You made it?
        Chiharu R.: Heheh. No, it's strange, right? A biker chick like me carving all these cute little wooden animals and stuff?
        Kyoichi: No, I don't think it's strange at all.
        Chiharu R.: Oh, wow, you're one of those nice guys, aren't ya?
        Kyoichi: Huh?

      • Chiharu R.: So, how do you like it?
        Kyoichi: Man, the air's so different. It's not as thick as it is back in Tokyo. Even the colors here are different.
        (Chiharu R. sighs with a quick slump.)
        Chiharu R.: Boy, that's a nice calm assessment. Could your description be a little more bland?

      • (Chiharu R. looks sad.)
        Kyoichi: What's the matter?
        Chiharu R.: I just remembered. He was always really good at making carbonara. He made it all the time.
        Kyoichi: Who do you mean?
        Chiharu R.: My boyfriend. If he was still alive, that is.
        Kyoichi: Uhh...of course, I see. Your boyfriend, he...I'm sorry. It's my fault for ordering carbonara.
        (Chiharu R. starts giggling and then bursts out laughing.)
        Chiharu R.: Just kidding.
        Kyoichi: Hey!
        Chiharu R.: Oh, man, you were way too gullible. Mr. Nice Guy. (laughs)
        Kyoichi: That's not funny at all.
        Chiharu R.: Come on, let's eat. Mmm, yummy! Carbonara tastes great after pulling the wool over someone's eyes.

      • Chiharu R.: Would you like a kiss?
        Kyoichi: Sorry, I'm not falling for that a second time.
        (Chiharu R. laughs)
        Chiharu R: Such a nice guy. There's no question. You're definitely one of the good ones.

      • Chiharu R.: Man, I feel good today. (takes off shirt)
        Kyoichi: Uhhh.
        Chiharu R.: How about a dip?
        Kyoichi: Uh.
        (Chiharu R. removes her shorts, leaving only bra and panties on.)
        Kyoichi: (looking away blushing) Uh, I don't know. I didn't bring my swimsuit with me, and it's kind of cold out here.
        (Chiharu R. hangs her shorts on the tree branch.)
        Chiharu R.: (crossing arms) If you're not swimming, then give me a little space.
        Kyoichi: Oh, right. I'm sorry.

      • DJ: Now, this next song, First Love, was written by Kozo Murashita, wasn't it?
        Shoko: That's right. And it was written about 20 years ago. You know, I'd never heard it before. But when I finally did, I was completely in awe. The lyrics are just amazing.
        DJ: It's about a boy who falls in love with a girl on the track team. He watches her from afar but doesn't have the courage to tell her how he feels. This song's all about that love.
        Shoko: Yup!
        DJ: Let's give it a listen, shall we?
        Shoko: (giggles) Okay!
        DJ: Here you go folks. Enjoy. This is First Love.

      • Kyoichi: I get it now.
        Chiharu R.: Huh?
        Kyoichi: He was hiding away in his own little world.
        Chiharu R.: What?
        Kyoichi: He just didn't want to get hurt. I think he was scared of losing his sense of self. I'm glad that I came here.

        Chiharu R.: I'm sure your next sketch will be amazing.
        Kyoichi: Because I'll draw whatever I feel. Although it just might end up being a big mess.
        Chiharu R.: Oh, I don't think that's such a bad thing, I mean, that's just who you are right now.

      • Kyoichi: Hey, I'm home.
        Chiharu: Hey, welcome back.
