- Rantarou: Can I ask you a question?
- Hoji: Yeah, sure.
- Rantarou: Why do you put up with Wakiya?
- Hoji: Oh, you know because we're friends.
- Rantarou: Why?
- Hoji: Wow, you ask really hard questions. Look, I know he can be aggravating, but what you have to remember is he's not doing it on purpose, it's just how he is. But he's also loyal and trustworthy and we have fun together.
- Rantarou: You know you're describing a dog?
- Hoji: He did bite me once. But in his defense, I came up behind him while he was eating.
- Rantarou: They hate that.
- Hoji: Wakiya is the smartest person I have met. He's a little broken and he needs me. And I guess I need him too.
- Rantarou: Why is that?
- Hoji: You will not let this go, will you?
