Gintoki: Now, what do we do about this?
Kondo: There’s only one thing we can do. No matter who we’re facing, it’s kill or be killed. That’s all.
Shinpachi: It does seem like we’re the last retainers who can protect the shogun.
Hijikata: If this is a joke, it ain’t funny. Of all people, these are the last men standing? I’d like a do-over, starting from the interview.
Kagura: Right back at you. Dying to protect the shogun would be one thing, but…
All: Dying with you guys is the last thing I want!
