SCRIPT (episode 28; version
Feelings I can never put into words.
Juri: But my heart always keeps on whispering.
Juri: And...you too...
sign: Tsuchiya Ruka
Utena: Senpai's really something. This is
the eighth opponent in a row.
Anthy: She's so strong.
Miki: Yes ma'am!
Ruka: Sorry for not having an appointment,
but would you mind if I was your next opponent?
Miki: Amazing. He's as good as Juri-senpai
Utena: No. Senpai was slightly slower.
Ruka: I was wondering how much you'd grown
while I was away,
Ruka: but it looks like I shouldn't have gotten
my hopes up.
Juri: So it really was you, Captain.
Ruka: Hey hey, you're the captain now, Arisugawa.
title: Whispering in the Dark
Juri: Ruka has returned to the Academy.
Nanami: Ruka has?
Juri: Yes. Tsuchiya Ruka, Captain of the Fencing
Miki: Juri-san, aren't you the Captain
of the Fencing Club?
Juri: I'm just minding things in his absense.
Miki: I had no idea.
Nanami: But what the heck is he doing back
Ruka: How cruel, Nanami-kun.
Ruka: Is that any way to talk to a recovering
Ruka: Having long been absent from school
due to an illness, I have now returned to school.
Nanami: Congratulations on your good health...
Ruka: Thank you.
Ruka: The Ends of the World seems rather displeased.
Ruka: He complains that none of you have any
Juri: Have you been chosen too?
Miki: Then you're going after Tenjou-san too?
Ruka: Hey now. I'm still recovering.
Nanami: Then what do you intend to do?
Ruka: Good question. Well, I haven't been
at the Academy for a while.
Ruka: For now, I think I'll just enjoy the
carefree student life.
Nanami: Thanks for the meal...
Ruka: No, close your stance more.
Ruka: Tilt in your hips.
Ruka: Yes, that's more like it.
girl: Hey, get out of there! I want my turn!
crowd: Me too! Me too!
girl: Tsuchiya-san's just so awesome!
girl: It feels like he's all anyone talks
sign: Arisugawa Juri
sign: Tsuchiya Ruka
Shiori: U-um...I'm sorry...
Shiori: I, um, wasn't trying to...
Ruka: I see. So it was you.
Ruka: While I was away, somebody polished
my sword every day.
Ruka: I was so happy.
Ruka: It was you, right?
Shiori: Yes. All for your sake,
Shiori: every day I polished this sword...
Ruka: Thank you. You're such a gentle person.
Shiori: Oh no, I'm not-
girl: Hey, check it out! Get a load of those
girls: Whoa! Major shock!
girl: Shiori's really something!
girl: I can't believe she got Tsuchiya-san
girl: She's usually all quiet and stuff...
girl: ...but she really kicks butt when she
Juri: I have something to say. Meet me "there".
Ruka: I'm glad you remembered this place.
Ruka: Sure takes you back, doesn't it?
Ruka: I taught you all my techniques here.
Ruka: From the moment you entered the club,
your talent shone brighter than anyone else.
Juri: You're the Captain of the Fencing Team.
I leave the management of the club in your hands.
Juri: And whatever you're plotting as a Duelist
is none of my concern.
Juri: Keep your hands off of Shiori.
Ruka: What for?
Juri: Shiori is...
Juri: Shiori is an old friend of mine.
Ruka: I see. I understand what you're saying.
Ruka: But I think you're misunderstanding
Ruka: I said already that I was going to live
the carefree life.
Ruka: Why shouldn't I be free to enjoy romance
with anyone in the Academy I want?
Utena: Tsuchiya Ruka. A swordsman good enough
to surpass Arisugawa-senpai.
Utena: This amazing person has returned to
the Fencing Club.
Anthy: You seem to be worried, Utena-sama.
Utena: Yeah. I feel some kind of unease.
Ruka: You're panting just like a little puppy.
Shiori: Come on...
Ruka: Well, shall we go?
Ruka: No matter how long the night is, it'll
be just like a second to us.
Juri: He knows.
Juri: He knows everything.
Shiori: Oh, Juri-san.
Shiori: What's that expression for?
Juri: Shiori, you shouldn't go out with him.
Juri: Your surprise is understandable. But,
I'm worried about you.
Juri: You mustn't trust that-
Shiori: You really suck, you know?
girl: Shiori, whatcha up to?
girl: Let's get going already.
Shiori: Yeah, coming.
girl: What's wrong?
Shiori: Oh, nothing.
girl: Isn't Arisugawa-senpai such a scary
Shiori: Oh, really?
Shiori: Who're you...
Touga: Sorry for startling you.
Touga: I came with a message from Tsuchiya.
Touga: He said he'd take you someplace wonderful
and he wanted you to wait for him.
Shiori: Someplace wonderful?
Touga: Listen, can't you hear it?
Touga: If your soul has not truly given up...
Touga: ...you should be able to hear...
Touga: ...the sound...
Touga: ...resounding across the Ends of the
Shiori: What...are you saying?
Shiori: What?! What's going on?
Touga: Now, allow us to invite you, to the
world you desire!
Ruka: Were you surprised?
Shiori: No, not at all.
Ruka: I thought you'd say that.
Shiori: You're gonna take me someplace wonderful,
Ruka: That's right. You've become an adult
Ruka: Let's grab hold of the whole world.
Ruka: Just the two of us.
Shiori: The whole world...
Ruka: Yes. The enormous Power of Miracles.
Shiori: Will that be mine?
Shiori: How wonderful.
Akio: Pleasant vibrations, aren't they?
Utena: Always so pretty...
Utena: Um, the roses.
Ruka: You're Tenjou Utena-kun?
Ruka: We've met once before, right?
Utena: Yes. I saw your match with Arisugawa-senpai.
Ruka: What splendid roses.
Ruka: Such a nice smell.
Utena: Are you a Duelist too?
Ruka: Today, after school, in the Arena of
shadow: Can you catch anything?
shadow: Doesn't look like it.
shadow: I got one!
shadow: Hold on tight! Don't let it get away!
shadow: Okay, come to papa!
shadow: Hey, isn't that a sandal?
shadow: Ooh, I got one over here!
shadow: Don't lose it, this is for dinner
shadow: Damn, it's a kettle.
shadow: Look, they're biting over there too!
shadow: Okay, this is the real thing this
shadow: A tire?
shadow: I guess.
Ruka: If you saw my match with Juri, you should
Ruka: I'm far better with a sword.
Utena: We'll never know till we try.
Ruka: That's correct. You've got hidden powers,
and I may not be able to beat them.
Anthy: O roses of noble memory, I beseech
Anthy: Appear before me.
both: Grant me the power to Revolutionize
Ruka: Neither Saionji nor Touga is an amateur.
Yet they couldn't beat you.
Ruka: I wonder how we'll do.
Utena: You're the first person who's ever
said that during a Duel.
Ruka: Really? But because I've decided to
Ruka: ...I intend to win!
Ruka: Now! Show me your power!
Utena: So strong...
Ruka: Oh? This might be easier than I thought.
Utena: Say what?!
Ruka: Hey now, I'm still recovering.
Ruka: Be a bit more gentle.
Ruka: What? Is that it?
Ruka: Ah, so that's it.
Shiori: Hey, we'll win next time, right? I
mean, the Power of Miracles is ours after all.
Shiori: Those two won't-
Ruka: There is no next time.
Ruka: No matter how often we do this, the
outcome wouldn't change.
Ruka: It's partially the Bride's fault that
Shiori: No way, that's cruel.
Shiori: Do you know how much I cared about
Shiori: That's right! I polished your sword
Shiori: Only for you...
Ruka: Oh that? That wasn't my sword.
Ruka: Your acting was really something. Great,
for an ad-lib.
Juri: I thought I told you to keep your hands
Ruka: She chose this herself.
Juri: Don't say that.
Ruka: Right. There's no need for me to say
Ruka: After all, you know it better than anybody
Juri: Ruka! What're you after! What're you

Utena: There's a rumor going around that Arisugawa-senpai
loves Shiori-san, but what do you think's going on?
Anthy: I don't think other people would understand.
Anthy: "Love"...it means different things
to different people.
Utena: No, I wasn't asking something that
general. What I wanna know now is...
