Hibiki: Kyaah! What a lovely room!!
Fujimaru: That's "Third-i" for you! Staying in a room this nice on government money even though I don't pay taxes makes me feel like I'm getting a great deal. Ha ha ha.
Minami: C'mon, this is no time for this. The summit meeting is tomorrow.
Minami: Prime Minister Kujou is already here.
Minami: And who knows what will happen once President Adams gets here.
Fujimaru: I know, I know, Minami-san.
Hibiki: I wonder where the fridge is.
Hibiki: Do you think we get towels and yukatas?
Minami: She's pretending to frolic around...
Minami: and is actually looking for bugs?
Hibiki: ...Okay! There are no bugs or hidden cameras!
Fujimaru: No response here either!
Minami: ...I can't believe it!
Minami: You thought someone could have set the place up?
Hibiki: Well, there's that. And...
Hibiki: I don't want anyone to film us having sex.
Fujimaru: H-hey, now!!
Adams: Mr. Ryan, it's only been a short time, but I just don't feel completely safe without Dupe, the "Spare Key".
Ryan: No need to worry. The level of security for your trip here is unprecedented.
Ryan: And the US forces in Japan are also defending you.
Ryan: According to the report from the Japanese secret military agency "Third-i", there are some remnants of the terrorists left, but they won't be able to do a thing.
Ryan: This is Ryan.
Adams: What is it?
Ryan: ...Dupe was...Special Aide Smith was...
Adams: Did something happen to Will?
Ryan: He was killed in an explosion.

Fujimaru: That's what politicians do.
Otoya: Fujimaru? Where are you?
Fujimaru: Karuizawa! I was just looking down on the Prime Minister and the President.
Fujimaru: Where're you?
Otoya: Tokyo Station.
Otoya: I'm headed to Karuizawa. I have to make it there in time for the welcoming ceremony.
Otoya: My grandfather "ordered" me to.
Fujimaru: I see...
Otoya: I'm sorry that he...
Otoya: didn't go to Ryuunosuke-san's funeral.
Fujimaru: He had no choice.
Fujimaru: This is an important time.
Fujimaru: Both for your grandfather and for the country.
Fujimaru: What about Haruka!? How's she doing?
Otoya: She seems to be doing fine.
Otoya: Her body didn't reject the organ...
Otoya: and she was looking healthy this morning.
Fujimaru: ...? What is it?
Otoya: It's just that she's worried about you.
Otoya: About you...
Otoya: and your "girlfriend", Mizusawa Hibiki.
Fujimaru: Oh, that...
Fujimaru: Well, a lot's happened...
Otoya: She said that Mizusawa Hibiki...
Otoya: seemed to be "acting".
Fujimaru: She's a sharp one.
Otoya: I heard from Kirishima-san...
Otoya: that you asked "Third-i" to get Mizusawa Hibiki Japanese citizenship.
Fujimaru: Yeah, she's with me right now.
Otoya: I won't say anything about...
Otoya: something that already happened.
Fujimaru: Thanks, Otoya.
Otoya: Do you remember what you said before?
Otoya: You said you wouldn't do anything else that would worry Haruka-chan.
Otoya: You're just a family of two now.
Otoya: ...Please be careful.
Fujimaru: You don't need to worry.
Fujimaru: Bye, Otoya...
Fujimaru: I just want this to all be over.
Fujimaru: I want it to be over and for everyone to be okay.
Hibiki: It'll be fine, Fujimaru!
