[In the car]
Secretary: You handled that well... The mayor was worried you’d be upset but you listened very calmly.
Ninamori: I guess, anyway this is between the two of them.
Secretary: You're very mature it’s impressive. When I was your age, I didn’t understand things like this.
Ninamori: If they both want to split up there’s nothing I can really do about it..
Secretary: Well that’s very level headed of you. But don't worry. I won't do anything to ruin your father's reputation. I promise.
Ninamori: It’s ok, I’m not worried. You like a smart secretary. You slept over last night but you put on a different suit this morning.
Secretary: Well well, that’s very observant. And, uh, you have an extra pair too, why is that?
Ninamori: It’s a costume for a play, I got the lead role!
Naota: Hey, house keeper wannabe! Cleaning Woman! Hey! Bottom feeder! Evil Alien.
Haru: Ha what?
Naota: Can you clean up the mess in my room?
Haru: What for? The whole store is stacked up with papers anyway.
Naota: Is he printing more of those dumb zenes?
Haru: Well after all, Monjon is a journalist.
Haru: He says it’s a minizene.
Naota: With no readers. Ahhhhh!
Naota: What a junker.
Haru: These parts are in perfect shape, how can they just backfire like that? Very Strange. Have fun today!
Noata: That hurts! Let me go!
Haru: I see you’re wearing your ugly hat to school again. Don’t make such a fuss. I just love how these feel, so soft and fuzzy. They make you feel all snuggly, you know.
Naota: Keep your hands off me.
Haru: So, what’s up for supper?. You’re probably going to insist on curry again, right?
Naota: I hate spicy stuff!
Haru: That’s why………..were going to buy you…little prince curry brand! It’s for kids.
Ninamori: You're late! I told you we had rehearsals this morning. You knew you were supposed to be there. Naota, you’re the lead role.
Naota: No you play the lead role. Anyone can play my part, I pass.
Ninamori: We voted for the cast, and you got voted in to play the cat.
Naota: The cat.
Ninamori: Do not miss the rehearsal after school. By the way, that hat is really bizarre.
Naota: Why is she so into this play?
Miya-Jun: Cats, or felines, love to be babied when you rub their ears. They have the ability to lick any part of their body.(while Miya-Jun is talking)
Naota: Is this?
Masashi: Is that cool or what? Found it in Sakae-cho. At some store right on the rack.
Gaku: The store that still sells crystal Pepsi!
Gaku: You know, the one that Van Hallen did those right now commercials for.
Miya-Jun: You there! What are you whispering about?
Miya-Jun: Demerit! Demerit! Grade 6 class 1 is now officially banned from bringing in any more reading material of low taste. Plus reading something like this secretly is impolite to Ninamori-San!(While Miya-Jun is talking)
Naota thinking: Kids can’t choose the adults in their lives. They can’t choose their parents. Ninamori's father is the mayor of Mabase. I don’t get it, but it must make it tougher. Of course that didn’t stop me from ditching the rehearsal after school. Playing a talking cat is really too dumb.
[Down By The River]
Mamimi: Ok, here we go!
Naota: That hat...
Mamimi: You finally ditched school like me Takkun, Meow.
Naota: Is it a cat or what?
Mamimi: You’re a delinquent.
Naota: It’s after school. Anyway practicing for a school play isn’t a regular part of class.
Mamimi: I used to be in school plays. It was really dumb and embarrassing... But I was kida happy too. My mom and dad both came to see me together. So it’s a good memory. Hey everyone, the king’s ears, are really, donkey’s ears!
Kamon: It got a lot of response, didn’t it? Well, investigative journalism is the key to community reform. My minizene “Come On Mabase” will bring in so many customers I bet you’ll even sell out an old back lot of Crystal Pepsi. Oh, jeeze what will we do then, huh? So how about it? More copies while I’ve still got them? How about 100? Lets say 80. See, someone wants a copy already.
Kamon: Yes, here you are sweetheart
[At the river]
Mamimi: I like your head. You just never know what’s going to come out of there next, like lord Canti, and these kitty ears. Takkun, you’re almost as cute as Doraemon.
Naota: But he doesn’t have ears.
Mamimi: Anyway you saved me, right? The other night, when you piloted lord Canti and fought that evil robot. You were super cool chief.
Naota: I could hardly even remember what happened that night when after I got swallowed up by Canti.
Haru: Canti! Canti! Would you bring in the laundry already? What’s that? It smells. I’m counting on you!
[In front of Ninamori Household]
Ninamori: You've also smart about running away.
Secretary: That’s because I’m a grownup. I like your boots, perfect for a nouveau riche princess. Bye-bye!
[At the Train Station]
Ninamori: I don’t have a home to go back to. All I have is my cat.
Naota: Ah Ha! The class president hanging around town like a derelict?
Ninamori: Wh... What do you think you're doing, ditching rehearsal again?!
Naota: Should I tell everyone where I found you?
Ninamori: Noata I swear sometimes I really think you are a delinquent or something.
Naota: Could be.
Ninamori: But that hat is still bizarre.
Naota: So, is there like a major scene at your house right now?
Ninamori: I don’t care.
Naota: It’s just some tabloid thing anyway, right? So don’t worry about it.
Ninamori: Anyway... It's all true you know. But hey, I have a lot of money. Yea, I’m a nouveau-riche princess. So, you want to go somewhere?
Naota: Right now mean?
Ninamori: You're Puss In Boots and I’m your owner so you just purr and follow my lead.
Naota: You talking about that play? I don’t want to be a dumb cat. Anyway I’m waiting for someone. Ah! There she is.
Ninamori: Who’s that?
Naota: Our housekeeper.
Haru: Uhhhh that cat almost killed me.
Ninamori: What’s this?
Haru: Don't touch it! A young girl like you shouldn’t touch it with your bare hands.
Ninamori: What is it anyway? Hello?
Haru:Uh, yeah. I guess it’s an ear.
Ninamori: What kind?H
aru: Cat looks like. Kitty kitty.
Ninamori: Ow! Ow ow ow! My stomach!
Haru: I told you not to touch it. Is that my fault?
Kamon: Pretty good.
Haru: It’s Manhattan style. See, little prince curry goes to New York, mild for kids.
Naota: Aaaaa! It’s spicy I don’t care if he goes to New York.
Ninamori: Your just being a kid, it’s and adult taste.
Naota: Why doesn’t he think it’s spicy?
Ninamori: Why is this robot eating? What is it?
Kamon: That’s just our television set.
Naota: No fair! Yours isn’t even as hot as mine!
Ninamori: Why is it walking?
Kamon: Because it’s a TV walkman, that’s why.N
inamori: Sony brand? But it was eating curry!
Naota: See, yours is milder, light spice.
Haru: Would you like some chocolate icing on your curry? Hey Canti I want a glass of water too.
Naota: Go get your own water you’re supposed to be the housekeeper here!
Haru: Yes, but only for Takkun.
Kamon: Ah, soda, how did you like the soda Miss Mayor Ninamori’s Daughter?
Naota: How do you know about Ninamori?
Kamon: Well, her father is a famous person now right?
Ninamori: No, I don’t think it’s any big deal.
Naota: Haruko hit her, on her bike.
Kamon: She ran her over? Hit the mayor’s daughter?
Naota: That’s why she started feeling sick.
Kamon: Oh! Oh No!
Ninamori: I don’t think it’s any big deal.
Haru: Please don’t tell anybody our baker’s motorbike ran you over.
Kamon: Bu…..But you got ran over!?
Naota: How’s your stomach?
Haru: That’s kinda rude Takkun.
Ninamori: I don’t think it’s any big deal.
Kamon: Hey listen! She can stay at the house tonight! Since her family is in this big awful scandalous mess right now.
Naota: What are you saying!?
Kamon: What I meant was why don’t you stay over tonight and get a good rest and forget about all of the bad things that have happened. Like getting run over.
Ninamori: I don’t think it’s any big deal.
Naota: See she said it’s no big deal.
Kamon: I can call your father and mother to see if it’s all right.
Ninamori: That’s all right, my parents are separate people. If my father divorces my mother, or gets arrested by the police, it’s up to him, it doesn’t matter to me.
Kamon: After effect!
Haru: Restroom? Over there.
[Later that night in the bathroom]
Man: Are you OK? How’s your stomach?
Ninamori: I don’t think it’s any big deal.
Man: Do you think I’m a bad person?
Ninamori: I’m glad you did it. It finally got rid of that secretary. She had to go.
Man: Your so mature for your age, here this will keep the soap out of your eyes.
[Naota Talking to Someone]
Naota: Wha? No it not like that, Don’t worry Ninamori is, she’s very grown-up.
Naota: Uh, glasses.
Ninamori: Our secret, I wear contacts.
Naota: You've been hiding things.
Ninamori: Oh look who’s talking! Look your pajamas are way too short for me. Can you see?
Naota: Huh, so you’re really sleeping over
Ninamori: Well, we already called, your father did.
Naota: Man, he’s only considerate at times like this.
Ninamori: But, we wouldn’t tell anyone at school about this? Right?
Naota: Of course not. People could say all sorts of things. Starting tomorrow don’t hang out with me for a while alright?
Ninamori: Yeah, but tonight it’s ok?
Ninamori: Oh, not in that way.
Naota: You know what! Go home this is weird!
Ninamori: What’s really weird, is your ears.
Naota: You saw em?
Ninamori: I was told I shouldn’t touch em. So what are they?
Naota: What do they look like?
Ninamori: Like cat ears, perfect to play a cat.
Naota: Why do I have to be the one to play the cat?
Ninamori: Cuz, I rigged the votes. So I play the lead and you play the cat, you didn’t figure it out huh? See, no one would suspect, they wouldn’t think the class president wouldn’t do a thing like that.
Naota: You mean you cheated?
Ninamori: Your not mad, are you?
Naota: You wanted to play the lead bad enough to do something like that?
Ninamori: Who would understand better than you? Your puss in boots the one who tricks the prince, he hides who he really is and pretends to be someone else forever. So in time he becomes that person so his lie becomes the truth see? He transcends the mask. Well don’t you get it? That’s how he find’s happiness! That’s pretty good right?
Haru: You really think so?
Naota: How long were you there?
Haru: The whole time.
Ninamori: Were you listening to us?
Haru: Course not, anyway why would I care if you cheated to get the lead role and make Takkun a pussycat?
Ninamori: Who is she really?
Naota: That's what I want to know.
Haru: Pretty tricky getting him to act in a play by blackmailing him about his ears.
Ninamori: It’s just a play, I’m not hurting him.
Naota: Really? I’m not so sure.
Haru: It's not nice to trick people ya know.
Naota: Yeah tell her!
Haru: Honest people are more popular.
Ninamori: Is that right? And do you always sleep up there?
Haru: Yes always.
Naota: Stop it.
Ninamori: You’re there every night?
Haru: Yeah all night, right here all alone with cuddly little Takkun.
Naota: Hey... Don't touch me there... Not my ears!
Haru: Furry furry furry furry.
Classmate: It's a robot!
Miya-Jun: Is there a person inside?
Gaku: Eww! Did you see that, she kissed him on the lips! Smooch smooch!
Naota: What are you doing?
Haru: Here, it’s your lunch. Mild curry for your rehearsal.
Naota: I don’t want it, I’m not acting in that play! Woah!
Haru: You still gotta eat lunch Takkun!
Naota: I'm going home now!
Ninamori: No! You've got to stay for rehearsal today.
Masashi: You’ve got to do what Ninamori’s telling you Naota.
Miya-Jun: That’s right! It was a group democratic decision.
Gaku: Did she put her tongue in? Smoooooch!
Naota: Shut up! You can’t tell me what to do.
Ninamori: I’m not going to et you go home.
Naota: I don’t want to do the play, I told you that.
Ninamori: It’s already been decided.
Naota: Why are you so up tight about it?
Ninamori: Everyone going to see it.
Naota: A few people are going to see it.
Ninamori: I want them to see it.
Naota: Cuz you’re a showoff.
Ninamori: My parents are going to see it together!
Naota: School play’s are for little kids!
Ninamori: We are kid’s including you!
Naota: I don’t want to play a cat it’s embarrassing!
Ninamori: You think that’s embarrassing? With a head like that?
Naota: Yeah, you’re the one that cheated to get the lead role!
Ninamori: Owww... Oh no….
Naota: Hey! Wait!
Ninamori: What’s this? What’s happening?
Miya-Jun: Let him go Ninamori-san!
Naota: Haruko! Cut it out!
Haru: Ukulele no good. Canti! Let’s get out of here!
Naota: Ninamori! Get away! Woah!
Miya-Jun: Demerit! No running in the hallways! Ooooo!
Gaku: Miya-Jun! It’s hit and run!
Haru: Hahaha! All right perfect, got it just where I want it!
Naota: Quit playing! It’s got Ninamori!
Naota: Woah! Woah! Haruko No! Ahh! Ahh!
Haru: Canti!... Out of the way!... It ate Takkun’s curry!
Gaku: Where did it go? Miyaji's car!
Masashi: She’s still paying off the loan...
Classmates: Miyaji looks messed up...Miya-Jun: No! Indecency! Demerit!
Haru: Restroom? Over there. Heh.
Naota: In the end, Ninamori’s father wasn’t prosecuted and he didn’t get a divorce. Ninamori said she didn’t care either way than she smiled. There was a rumor she was going to change schools but she’s still here.
[At the Play]
Miya-Jun: Ninamori-san, Break a leg.
Naota: Oh no! Glasses!
Ninamori: They're fake.
Haruko: Ichiro came to the US to meet Tomio Ascord after his second year after a professional player in Japan, and after playing a few rounds he was told that if he wanted to come to the major leagues he’d have to have bigger arms. Next on FLCL episode 4 Full Swing! See ya at the ball game!
