    • Kambei: You were born a farmer, weren't you Kikuchiyo?
      Komachi: Is that true, Kiku? You're a farmer?
      Kikuchiyo: You're disappointed.
      Komachi: Who me? No. That just means you can help us with the harvest.
      Kambei: Then my suspicious were correct.
      Kikuchiyo: You mean you guessed it before?
      Kambei: From the very first time I met you.

    • Kirara: Let me sink with you and share the weight. Kambei was right. We make you kill to protect us because were cowards. At least let me wash the blood that spills on your skin.
      (Kisses Katsushiro's hands)

    • Kambei: You must take care of your swords. I have made the blade of your daito sharper. A samurai is one who kills. Why did you come to this village?
      Katsushiro: To save it, of course.
      Kambei: Then you have done your job. If you wish to continue on the samurai path, you must be prepared to carry the weight of those you kill. Otherwise, the meaning of this wound will be lost.

    • Kambei: Kikuchiyo, deal with the body.
      Kikuchiyo: Why do I have to do it? He's the one who killed the guy.
