Tessai Quotes in Ninja Scroll (1993)
Jubei: [ambushed by Tessai] No... I know the way now! So leave me alone, alright?
Tessai: Not quite the right direction. The way to Hell is...
[pins Jubei to a column]
Tessai: RIGHT HERE!
[punches him in the guts]
Jubei: [after getting beaten by Tessai] It hurts... that makes us even, doesn't it? Let's just call it quits!
Tessai: Not until you have paid your debt.
Jubei: That's not very smart... first of all, don't you think that if we keep this up, it's almost certain one of us is gonna die?
Tessai: One of us? Yes.
Jubei: [drags his sword to himself using a string] There's no reason we should kill each other...
[flings the sword to himself and catches it]
Jubei: That's the only sensible answer! Isn't it?
Tessai: Well, answer THIS!
[throws his sword at Jubei]
[Tessai is molesting Kagero]
Tessai: Hey, piss off. I'm busy.
[Jubei doesn't respond]
Tessai: Can't you hear me? Beat it!
[Jubei walks over to them]
Jubei: Do me a favor - y-y'see, I'm lost and I need to find the quickest way from here to Kakio? I'm really sorry to bother you, but the highway was closed...
[Tessai attacks him with his blades, but it only makes a cut in Jubei's sugegasa]
Jubei: [ruefully] My best hat!
[Tessai chokes Kagero as she tries to resist his molestation]
Tessai: Shut up. And perhaps I'll let you live just a little bit longer. Don't let it cross your mind that I wouldn't mind raping a dead girl.
[she stops resisting; gets a concealed knife ready]
[Kagero tries to stab Tessai with a hidden knife, but it breaks against his stone body]
Tessai: Nice try. I'll get rid of this pesky insect, and then I'll kill you!
[turns his attentions to Jubei]
Tessai: What now? You regret not running away?
Jubei: No. As a matter of fact, I've been thinking about... your body. It seems to me that... your body can't be as hard as rock all over, now, can it?
[throws a knife into Tessai's eye; he and Kagero escape]
