    • Rikichi: Please, we beg you, let us explain.
      Bandit: Very well, you may try.
      Rikichi: We realize now that we made a terrible mistake. We were hungry and scared we'd starve, but we had no right to do what we did. We had no right to turn against you.

    • Bandits: This is no idle threat. Drop your weapons and cross the bridge one at a time.
      Kambei: Fire!

    • Kambei: Rikichi? You will fire it.
      Rikichi: I will?
      Kambei: You wanted revenge, didn't you?
      Heihachi: Don't worry. It's easy. All you have to do is knock off the clasp. It's just like hitting a nail.

    • Gorobei: It's quiet...too quiet. They can hide the sound, but not the smell
      Shichiroji: Hmm? What's that mean?
      Gorobei: It means this evening's program has just been altered.

    • Kirara: But no matter what, I will stand beside him on his path to become a great samurai, and if any blood stain are left on him, I will be the one to clean them off. I believe that is my duty as a leader and a friend, don't you?
      Kambei: I see. Then I ask you only to be prepared for what may come.
