"All this does is hurt my shoulder. And ego. I can't believe that Thomas! Does he really want his sister to be half-Digimon?"

—Yushima's more concerned of his principles than his own body's health.

Relena: "Hey Tommy, after I'm all cured I wanna challenge you to a race. And Gaomon too."
Thomas: "Yeah, And you'll win!"

—Thomas and Relena's promise before the operation.

"Oh, I love a good game of chess to pass the time! Knock all their pieces over, Belphemon!"

—Kurata's got some good tastes. Too bad he likes to mingle them with his bad ones.

"The power generated from the Digivices that Spencer Damon created are useless! But really now, what can you expect from machines made by such a substandard scientist like my old employer?"

—Kurata makes fun of Spencer's power of emotions.

"With ShineGreymon out of the way and MirageGaogamon on my side, they're useless against me! Nothing can stop me now!"

—Kurata, you shouldn't jump into conclusions yet.

Hashima: "Oh no!"
Kurata: "I take it that this means you're refusing to meet my demands."

—Kurata's not as scared as Hashima after the helicopters attack Belphemon.

"This operation was a success!"

—Thomas shows his true intentions.

Kurata: "What is going on around here?!"
Thomas: "Surprise!"
Kurata: "Ah, Thomas. I'm having a slight emergency. The control device you made for me has suddenly exploded"

—Wow. If that's a "slight emergency", I don't wanna know what a big problem is.

Thomas: "There's actually a very simple explanation for that: I secretly built in a small charge and set it for a precise time."
Kurata: "What?!"
Thomas: "You won't be able to control Belphemon anymore. All of your plans end here and now!"
Kurata: "Why I... You!"

—Thomas remains cool at Kurata's anger.

"Don't you worry, Thomas will find a cure. And it won't require turning your daughter into a monster."

—Yushima gives Franz a bit of hope.

"Thomas H. Norstein, How DARE you betray me! You little brat. Hm-hm. He thinks it's all over, Well then he's a fool to assume I wouldn't have a backup plan. If I can't control Belphemon from a safe distance, then I'll just have to control him dangerously from within!"

—Kurata's anger makes him take a sink-or-swim measure.

Kurata: "I will take no prisoners! Everything in my path will be destroyed!"
Yoshino: "That sounds like Kurata!"
Keenan: "How that possible?"
Crowmon: "He couldn't have fused with Belphemon, could he?"
Miki: "We'll be in big trouble if he did."
Megumi: "We're already in big trouble."

—A little optimism won't hurt you, Megumi.

Thomas: "Let's end this battle once and for all."
MirageGaogamon: "Sir yes Sir."

—Thomas and MirageGaogamon return to defeat Kurata.

Other Notes[]

Dubbing changes

  • Kurata says Thomas' full name in the English dub to match with Belphemon's mouth. He originally says his first name alone.
