    very intertaining episode. it was really funny, i really like ritzu(i think) it was really really funny when he bought fruit books instead of a basket, so funny and rather sweet. shigure was a blast in this episode too. so funny picking on ritzu like that, though you could see it as mean too. it was funny when he would hit ritzus side his face was always so funny when he did that. i was also glad to see hatori, i really like him. i also thought it was funny with the milk. i was kinda sad that they left out the end... in the manga shigure editor meets rizu and they were really cute togethermoreless
  • Tohru gets to meet another member of the Sohma's family Ritsu.Who said to be the daughter of the hot spring owner.But it seemed that there is something more about Ritsu,than meet the eye.moreless

    Yeah I think this episode is very FUNNY.I mean its makes me laughed.Even with Ritsu,she I mean he is very funny.Altough he keeps blaming himself for the things that he has done.When Tohru accidently hugged Ritsu.She was very confused wondering why she hugged him.When she did find out.She found out that Ritsu was an guy.Of course Ritsu,reveals to Tohru about why he wears an girl clothing and all that kind of stuff.It made me sad about that one.He only feels guilty for his parents.Yes Ritsu clumsyness makes me laugh.But still this episode was very funny indeed.moreless

    • Ri: I'm a complete failure. At everything I do, I'm absolutely worthless. I know this, and yet I continue to burden the human race with my presence. Every day I rob the world of valuable air by breathing. I'm a thief, and I hate myself for it. I don't deserve to exist. But even though I know it's the right thing to do, I'm such a useless coward. I don't even have the courage to jump!
      Tohru: No, don't! Don't jump! It's okay that you don't have that kind of courage. The important thing is you're alive. And life hurts sometimes and sometimes it can be hard, but it won't always be that way. (closes eyes and thinks of her mom) There's gotta be a reason for you to live.

    • Ritsu: I'm sorry, world! I apologize to all the people who are forced to share the same name as me! I'M BEGGING YOU PLEASE FORGIVE ME!

    • (After Tohru serves Hatori some soup.)
      Shigure: She's great, isn't she? Yes, right now I'll bet you're wishing you had a cute little housewife of your very own!
      Hatori: You know, you really shouldn't make such stupid comments.
      Kyo: 'Cause I'm gonna knock you through the roof!
      Shigure: Oh, Kyo, I didn't see you there.
      Kyo: No one's the little housewife of anyone, got it? And if I hear you say it again, I'm gonna snap you in two!
      Shigure: (tiptoeing away) Kyo's scaring me.
      Kyo: Bastard.

    • Ritsu: I also apologize for not telling you I was a boy when we met. I was too ashamed.
      Tohru: No, it's okay.
      Shigure and Yuki: (thinking) So he does know that dressing like a girl is strange after all.
      Tohru: It didn't bother me that you were wearing girls' clothes. In fact, I thought you looked really cute in that dress.
      Shigure: Tohru, I'm not sure that's really going to help right now.

    • (Shigure and Hatori are on the phone)
      Shigure: So anyway I was wondering if you could come take a look at Tohru's cut? That is when you think you can spare the time.
      Hatori: Fine. I'll drop by the house this evening.
      Shigure: Aha! What's this, Hatori? I don't think I've heard you sound so eager to come over. Could it be you have a secret crush on Tohru?
      (Shigure's phone shows three dots slowly appearing from Hatori's speaker.)
      Shigure: Ah! I guessed right, didn't I? You naughty, naughty man!
      Hatori: No, I was simply too amazed by your stupidity to say anything.
