The Twilight Samurai Quotes

Min Tanaka as Zenemon Yogo

  • (Min Tanaka) "So they sent you --"
  • (Hiroyuki Sanada) "Zenemon Yogo, by order of the clan, I come for your life. Draw your sword, please."
  • (Min Tanaka) "Have a drink? I know you're all keyed up, but I'm going to run."
  • (Hiroyuki Sanada) "Run?"
  • (Min Tanaka) "Yep. I want you to let me get away. If you please."
  • (Hiroyuki Sanada) "I didn't expect that fromt he clan's best one-sword man. My orders are to kill you. I can't let you escape."
  • (Min Tanaka) "Don't be so impatient, you can kill me at anytime. I'd like to talk to you. Have a seat. It's a nice day."

Erina Hashiguchi as Ito

  • (Erina Hashiguchi) "With a sick wife, two young daughters and an aged mother in his care, my father was unable to drink with his colleagues. He had to hurry home every evening at dusk. I was told the men he worked with gave him the cruel nickname of 'Twilight Seibei'."

Hiroyuki Sanada as Seibei Iguchi

  • (Hiroyuki Sanada) "I am ashamed to say that over many years of hardship with two daughters, a sick wife and an aged mother, I have lost the desire to wield a sword. A serious fight, the killing of a man, requires animal ferocity and calm disregard for one's own life. I have neither of those within me now. Perhaps in a month -- alone with the beasts in the hills I could get them back. But tomorrow, I am afraid, is completely impossible."

Miki Itō as Kayano Iguchi

  • (Miki Itō) "Father, If I learn to do needlework someday I can make kimonos. But what good will book learning ever do me?"
  • (Hiroyuki Sanada) "Well, it probably won't ever be as useful as needlework. But you know, book learning gives you the power to think. However the world might change, if you have the power to think you'll always survive somehow. That's true for boys and for girls. All right?"
  • (Miki Itō) "Yes."
