  • When Ed looks for Faye, Spike discovers the code name Julia coming from Callisto. He rushes off to see its origin, arriving to find people who mistake him for Vicious. As Faye finds Gren, another man from Vicious' past, Spike finds Vicious.moreless

    9.3
    This is about as effective as the first in a two-part episode can be. We, as viewers, are wrapped up in Spike's past, and at this point know almost nothing about Julia. As Spike rushes to Callisto to find Vicious, we are introduced to Gren. The entire episode kind of has an airy, far out style. It sets the stage very well for the revelations that take place in Jupiter Jazz Part II, but in itself has its share of beautiful and mysterious moments. There are only a few episodes about Spike's past, and Jupiter Jazz I and II are a haunting, almost stinging installment.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (8)

    • (Faye sneezes)
      Gren: Take care. Yeah, that was a pretty close one. If someone sneezes and no one says take care, that person will turn into a fairy. That's what they say around here, you know.
      Faye: Then there's no problem. I'm already a fairy don't you know that?

    • (coming episode)
      Spike: Hey, how are men and women different?
      Faye: Hmm... I think women are hiding more vital secrets than men are.
      Spike: But there are women who aren't feminine.
      Faye: And men who aren't masculine.
      Spike: What about those that aren't usually feminine but show that side of themselves in some chance circumstances? I like that.
      Faye: Really?
      Spike: I'm not talking about you.
      Faye: Who then?
      Ed: Maybe it's me! Hahahaha!
      Spike: Next episode, Jupiter Jazz part 2.
      Jet: Maybe it's me.

    • Ed: Nana, hachi, kyû, konnichi wa to you.
      Spike: Are you sure you're looking for Faye?
      Ed: Ichi, zero, ichi, ichi, sayonara!
      Spike: Or are you just wasting time?

    • Spike (reading Faye's note): 'It'd be too hard to see you, so I'm leaving without saying goodbye. Please, please do not look for me.' Free at last.
      Jet: She sucked all the antifreeze from the cooling system, it'll be offline for at least half a day.
      Spike: After this stunt, we're not going to look for her, right?
      Jet: She emptied out the safe too.

    • Child: (After seeing a shooting star) A star just fell from the sky.
      Old Man Bull: That is not an ordinary star, my son. That star is the tear of a warrior.
      Child: What warrior is it?
      Old Man Bull: A lost soul who has finished his battle somewhere on this planet. A pitiful soul who could not find his way into the lofty realm where the great spirit awaits us all.

    • Vicious: Cold climates do not concern me.
      Red Dragon Elder: True, your heart is colder than any planet. Colder than the eye of a snake about to strike. Vicious, remember, a snake cannot eat a dragon.

    • Spike: I'm gonna go look for my woman. You can go look for the other one.

    • Spike: You think I'm Vicious!? You don't know what Vicious is!

  • NOTES (3)

    • Besides the writing "COWBOY BEBOP", that appears during the break in the middle of every episode, in this episode is an acquittal. The saying is: "The work, which becomes a new genre itself, will be called.... COWBOY BEBOP"

    • Original Japanese Airdate (テレビ東京 - TV Tōkyō): May 22nd, 1998.
