- Mugen: [in front of an execution squad] I don't give a rat's ass about going to hell. Guess I feel like I'm already there. What I do mind is the thought of being killed by you ugly bastards.

- Fuu: (To Okuru) There were two useless bodyguards traveling with me. Well, it doesn't matter anymore. Now I'm as lonely as can be. So, it doesn't matter where I die. But... I didn't want to drown. Because, you know, your body size doubles. I'm not joking. I want to die beautiful, you know.
- Okuru: There are no beautiful corpses.
- Mugen: (to Fuu, about Jin) Tall, dark, and four-eyed here is thinking the same thing: hanging around with a girl with absolutely no sex appeal isn't my idea of fun.

- Jin: That four-eyed thing, take it back.

Sountrack to Episode 17 can be found here; Here
- Mugen: (To Okuru) I've seen those eyes before. They're similar to the eye's of a head that's been cut off. The ones that are slightly wet and don't know what they see. Hey, are you really alive?
- Mugen: (Notices Okuru playing a melody) You are Okuru, aren't you? They were just out there... People called Matsumae-Han or something. They gave me a lot of trouble. They thought I was you.
- Okuru: Did they give you money?
- Mugen: I just want to fight you.
- Okuru: Fight me, whaaaat?

- Fuu: But it's written right there.
- Mugen: I have a little trouble understanding it.
- Fuu: Is it possible that you can't read?
- Mugen: [Pointing at letters] That's a "no". This and this are also "no". I can read it just fine.
- Fuu: [Points at a letter] Then what about this?
- Mugen: It's "no".
- Jin: It's "me".
- Mugen: Damn you little bitch, that was a trick question!
- Mugen: [after drawing the infinity symbol] I thought of it myself. It stands for Mugen.
Episode 19: "Unholy Union"
- Mugen: [surrounded by guards]: You boys want a piece of me?
- Jin: By starting this pointless squabble, you have done nothing but reveal just how vast your stupidity is. Please refrain from these moments of self-grandeur.
- Mugen: Run that by me again.
- Priest: . . .and after that you'll be able to get started on polishing the Buddha. You'll be happy to do that, right?
- Mugen: Why don't I polish that pinhead of yours, you bald ass son of a bitch!
Episode 20: "Elegy of Entrapment (Verse 1)"
Episode 21: "Elegy of Entrapment (Verse 2)"
- Sara: What I can't see I can sense.
- Mugen: (stumbling, bleeding) What?
- Sara: Inside of you looms a simmering storm of hatred and rage, but perhaps what I'm actually sensing is sadness. It's as if you've never once been loved by anyone; it's as if you're just like me.
- Sara: I realized something. My son's been dead for a long time now. This whole time, they've just been using me. I cannot fight them. The government hired me. I just want you to live, Mugen.
(Mugen is about to go and fight Sara)
- Jin: That woman... can see a moment ahead.
- Mugen: Seems like it.
- Jin: The fish. It seems the fish can understand their situation by the flow of water that surrounds them. If you don't go against the flow of the water, but entrust yourself to it, you might be able to catch one.
- Mugen: What's that?
- Jin: Something the man who saved my life said.
- Mugen: She said something about her kid's life being on the line.
- Fuu: She did? So it's obvious someone's forcing her to do this.
- Jin: But who would do that?
- Mugen: Take your pick. We've dined and dashed, snuck through a checkpoint, and, oh yeah, killed people.
Episode 22: "Cosmic Collisions"
(Shige discovers that he isn't really a descendant of the Heike clan)
- Shige: (Completely surrounded) Well, at this point, whether I'm a descendant or not has nothing to do with it. We have no blood in our bodies to connect us anymore, anyway. Couldn't we just forget about that and let things continue as they have been? I guess not.
(After Mugen and Jin ate a lot of mushrooms)
- Fuu: Oh... thats right. In the newspaper horoscope, it said to be careful of mushrooms.
- Mugen: (Yells) Don't tell us after we've eaten them!
- Fuu: (Sees a shooting star) Oh, a shooting star. (Making a wish) Let us find the samurai who smells like sunflowers. Let us make it safely to Nagasaki. And I want to eat enough so my stomach is full.
Episode 23: "Baseball Blues"
Mugen: Against a load of pansies like you, one of me is more than enough!
Episode 24: "Evanescent Encounter (part 1)"
- Kagetoki Kariya: Only hope can give rise to the emotion we call despair. But it is nearly impossible for a man to try to live without hope, so I guess that leaves Man no choice but to walk around with despair as his companion.
- Mugen: Huh? What the hell do you want?
- Kagetoki Kariya: If you're looking for Kasumi's daughter, she's crossed over to the island.
- Jin: Do you know him? You know Seizo Kasumi?
- Kagetoki Kariya: I know he's a felon who abandoned his country and had his soul stolen by that foreign religion. I've heard that he fled here to Kyushu and that he was involved in the Shimabara Rebellion. I also know he's the man that the Shogunate wants eliminated more than anyone else. They've know all along that his daughter was trying to find him. In fact, it's helped them. They've let her run free this whole time so they're able to discover Kasumi's whereabouts. And now, although it pains me to say this, I have to insist that you two die right here.
- Mugen: You're taking us on by yourself? You sure got a big pair on ya, pal.
- Kagetoki Kariya: [readies his sword ] Come, I hope that you don't disappoint me.
Episode 25: "Evanescent Encounter (part 2)"
- Fuu: But Mugen, I can't leave you.
- Mugen: Don't give me that crap! Listen to me, I'm gonna be pissed off if we came all this way for nothin'. Get lost.
- Fuu: I can't...what if they...
- Mugen: I ain't gonna die. Have some faith in me will ya?
- Fuu: Oh Mugen...
- Mugen: Beat it. (Fuu takes a step back) Go on. (Fuu takes another step back) I said go!
Episode 26: "Evanescent Encounter (part 3)"
- Sunflower Samurai Kasumi Seziou: Fuu....
- [After surviving a building collapsing on him]
- One-Eyed Brother: Well that hurt like a son of a bitch didn't it?!
- Jin: I think I've found what I was looking for all this time. I, who was always alone, found friends for the first time. You two were my first friends.
