Lupin: True! But this is no ordinary sword! And my dear friend Goemon is no ordinary swordsman! And I, Arsène Lupin III, am no ordinary distraction!
Jigen: Hmm. Quality craftsmanship. Nicest gun I’ve ever stolen.
Rip: Oh, it is on now. Do you think I’m helpless without my musket? I’m a vampire! I have teeth!
