SCRIPT (episode 26; version
We must defeat Tenjou Utena immediately and engage the Rose Bride
to somebody else.
Touga: Oh? Wasn't Tenjou Utena supposed to
be the golden goose?
Akio: The golden goose is valuable because
it lays golden eggs.
Touga: My, how selfish. So, which piece will
title: Miki's Nest Box (Sunlit Garden - Arrange
crowd: What's going on?
crowd: Hey, that's dangerous!
crowd: What the-?
crowd: What's she doing?
Anthy: My, how awful.
girl: Just forget about that thing and use
girl: You're really gonna fall!
girl: Man, what a scare.
girl: But why'd she go and do something like
girl: Well, when she heard that tree was gonna
be cut down after school today,
girl: she climbed right out the window onto
to the ledge to save the little birds' nest in the branches.
girl: Kozue's pretty cool most of the time,
but sometimes she just does the weirdest things.
Miki: You're all hot and sticky. Don't lean
Kozue: It's easier on you this way.
Utena: You shouldn't do reckless stuff like
that any more. You'll worry your brother.
Kozue: My my, brother mine, are you worried
Miki: I said don't lean on me.
Utena: I left your bags right here.
Miki: Sorry for making you carry our luggage
Anthy: What shall we do with these little
Miki: Bringing them home with us was all very
well and good, but now what?
Anthy: How about giving them some ground millet
Anthy: ...which is also fed to parakeets and
Miki: Oh, that stuff?
Anthy: Steep it in tepid water and then grind
Anthy: Since they are chicks, you must feed
them every three hours during the day.
Miki: Got it. Wow, that's pretty tough.
Anthy: Yes, quite.
Utena: You don't hear them talk to each other
this much very often.
Miki: Himemiya-san, you must've raised chicks
Miki: Really? You sure know a lot about it.
You're really into animals, aren't you?
Anthy: Actually, it would be best to return
the birds to their parents, but...
Anthy: Oh, are you all right standing by yourself?
Kozue: Thank you. But since you've come all
this way out here,
Kozue: the cute younger sister will tactfully
Kozue: Take your time.
Kozue: That letter. Is it from "her"?
Miki: You read it too.
Miki: It's from our mother.
Utena: Wow, that's cool, getting a letter
from your mother.
Utena: I don't have any family, so I'm a bit
Kozue: We don't need any parents.
Kozue: After all, we're wild animals.
Miki: Quit badmouthing them. Mother and Father
are always concerned about us...
Kozue: Oh dear, I made you get all serious.
Utena: Hey, do you think this is "the" garden?
Anthy: Hmm? Which garden?
Utena: "The Sunlit Garden". You know, the
title of that song Miki wrote.
Anthy: I don't know. But that's just an image,
Utena: Didn't Miki say that he and Kozue-chan
played piano in a garden when they were little?
Anthy: So he did.
Utena: I wonder if it was this one? It's pretty
Anthy: Well, it's a memory, so...
Utena: That's probably true, but I imagined
Akio: More...what? What did she say?
Anthy: Well now...I wondered that too.
Anthy: I haven't a clue.
Akio: What do you think of her?
Anthy: What do I think...?
Akio: What do you think of her. Tell me.
Anthy: The tea-cup broke.
Utena: Akio-san! Are you around?
Akio: Yeah, right over here. What's up?
Utena: Well, nothing special. I-
Utena: Um, am I butting in on some brother-sister
Akio: Come now, "butting in"?
Akio: Aren't the three of us just like family
Akio: You don't have to hesitate at all.
Utena: Just like family huh?
Anthy: I'm sorry. My brother said a rather
forward thing to you...
Utena: No, it's okay.
Utena: I don't have any family, so it actually
made me feel good.
Utena: It's true. Your brother's really, like,
Anthy: My brother is...well, let's see. He
certainly is mature.
Anthy: He's like a parent to me.
Utena: Do you think fathers and mothers always
care for their children like Miki said?
Anthy: Could that be because of their genes?
Utena: That's a pretty harsh thing to say.
Anthy: I'm sorry.
Utena: You don't have to apologize.
Juri: The Ends of the World started sending
us letters again.
Miki: Saionji-senpai hated the Duels that
much, but he Dueled again anyway.
Miki: Maybe it's got something to do with
Juri: I'm worried about what Touga's up to.
Nanami: What about my brother?
Juri: "Defeat Tenjou Utena, for the sake of
you Duelists"...is it?
Miki: I don't like this!
Miki: Most adults who tell you to do things
"for your own sake" can't be trusted.
Nanami: That's a motion of no-confidence towards
the Ends of the World, isn't it?
Miki: Interpret it that way if you want.
Miki: If Dueling means being manipulated by
selfish adults, I'm stopping right now.
Juri: It's too early to be that resolute.
Juri: The true nature of the Ends of the World
is not yet known.
Nanami: That's right. He might be "Daddy Long
Legs" for all you know.
Juri: Nanami. Hurry up and let me use that.
Miki: Yeah. It was in the letter from mother.
Miki: No, Kozue and I aren't opposed to it.
Miki: Father, it's entirely up to you.
Miki: I don't think we'll be able to make
it to the wedding, but we'll at least send a telegram.
Miki: What? With who?
Miki: Oh, don't bother. You mean new mother,
right?. Don't worry about that.
Anthy: Don't worry. Calling myself his mother
so suddenly would be too shameless.
Nanami: Well, look who's here!
Kozue: Same to you.
Nanami: What're you doing? I heard you were
Kozue: Wild animals heal fast.
Nanami: Is that so. Well, that's fine...
Nanami: ..but loitering is prohibited for
anybody not on the Student Council.
Kozue: I'm meeting someone.
Nanami: At this hour? Who on earth?
Kozue: A "Daddy Long Legs". Shall I introduce
Nanami: No thanks.
Touga: It's almost dawn. How long do you plan
on staying here?
Miki: The school festival is coming up. I'm
getting my fingers in shape.
Touga: What are you being indignant for?
Miki: I'm not being indignant or anything...
Touga: I hear you plan to quit being a Duelist.
Touga: But you've already chosen the path
of a Duelist.
Touga: I believe you know that there's something
you can't have unless you take it for yourself.
Touga: Reached an impasse?
Miki: Juri-san said she suspected you've been
up to something lately.
Touga: Such a beautiful melody.
Touga: But it can't sustain that beauty by
being beautiful alone.
Touga: Oh my, it hit the wall already.
Miki: What are you trying to say?
Touga: There's someone I want you to meet.
Miki: Someone you want me to meet?
Touga: Listen, can't you hear it?
Miki: Hear what?
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
Miki: What are you talking about?
Miki: I hear it! I really hear it!
Miki: What's going on?!
Touga: Now, allow us to invite you, to the
world you desire!
Miki: You're the Chairman of the Board...correct?
Kozue: Yep. Himemiya-senpai's older brother.
Miki: What're you doing in a place like this?
Kozue: It's obvious. I'm on a date with Akio-san.
Miki: Oh? Well, whatever.
Miki: More importantly, what do you want with
me, Mr. Chairman?
Kozue: You love Himemiya-senpai, don't you
Kozue: You don't have to be so bashful.
Kozue: If she's so important to you, then
make her yours.
Kozue: Akio-san said he'd help you.
Kozue: He's awesome.
Miki: I thought you hated Himemiya-senpai.
Kozue: What I want is for you to be happy.
Miki: What're you talking about, all of a
Kozue: I'm always honest with my feelings.
Kozue: I don't lie.
Kozue: Don't you trust me?
Miki: That's not it...
Kozue: Akio-san said it's for your own sake.
Miki: Well, he's an adult.
Kozue: If everything around you is dirty,
don't you have no choice but to get dirty too?
Kozue: You've got no choice but to get dirty
and then get what you want.
Miki: What I want...
Miki: You're the one who made Saionji-san
Duel before, aren't you?
Miki: You seduced Touga, and interfered with
the Student Council...
Miki: ...what the hell are you...?
Akio: I'll show you the Ends of the World.
Yes, even you.
Miki: So that's it! You're...
Kozue: Hey, be more gentle.
Miki: Sorry. Is it crooked?
Kozue: No, it's okay. Attach it here.
Utena: Hi, you two. Setting up a nest box?
Utena: I wonder if the parent birds will come
Utena: What is it?
Miki: Today, after school, at the Arena of
Utena: No way...
shadow: I wonder I wonder, do you know what
shadow: Honored guest, isn't it about time
shadow: Damn it, I'm betting my entire purse!
All of it on black!
shadow: Are you positive?
shadow: Oh, what a shame! It was red!
shadow: Honored guest, didn't you said you
hated gambling, and had never done it before in your life?
shadow: Hey! You're the one who recommended
I try it at least once!
shadow: Just stay put. I'm gonna withdraw
my life savings.
shadow: What a sucker.
Utena: Kozue-chan! What're you doing dressed
Kozue: Ready? Here we go.
Anthy: O roses of noble memory, I beseech
Anthy: Appear before me.
both: Grant me the power to Revolutionize
Utena: I thought you and I were already friends!
Miki: Your sword can't beat mine, can it?
Miki: As of today, the Rose Bride is mine!
Miki: You've gotten a lot better. But...
Kozue: I hear people who get Engaged to you
get an amazing power.
Kozue: What kind of amazing power?
Miki: Kozue! What're you doing?!
Kozue: Show that power to me.
Kozue: You'll lose if you don't keep your
eyes on what you're doing.
Utena: A child's sword...
Utena: I wonder what made him Duel me so suddenly?
Anthy: Who knows.
Utena: I mean, Miki's more...

Utena: Hey Himemiya, do you worry about things
you can't tell other people?
Anthy: Sunny-side up, rolled eggs with soup
stock, spa egg...
Utena: I'm sure everybody has embarrassing
things they can't talk to others about.
Anthy: Scrambled eggs, omelettes...
Utena: I wonder what the heck Nanami's worrying
Anthy: Without breaking the eggshell, an omelette
cannot be made.
