Cowboy Bebop (1998) s01e12 Episode Script

Jupiter Jazz Part 1

1 I think it's time to blow this scene Get everybody and the stuff together OK, 3-2-1, let's jam A star just fell from the sky.
That is not an ordinary star, my son.
That star is the tear of a warrior.
What warrior is it? A lost soul who has finished his battle somewhere on this planet.
A pitiful soul who could not find his way to the lofty realm where the Great Spirit awaits us all.
The report from Callisto went directly to Vicious.
He is requesting an arrangement for some Red Eye.
30,000 Woolongs per gram, 7,500 grams total.
Why did he send you to make the deal? He's a Titan veteran.
We were in the same squadron.
Why does he rely on you now? Callisto is in a financial depression.
When he can't see the future, he worries.
All the more reason for us to keep our hands off the planet.
In truth, Vicious, are you not the one who's worried? It appears that you do not have the authority to make your own decisions in this matter.
No matter who they are, those who go against the will of the Van will be severely punished.
You think I'd betray my own mentor? Then Mao's case was merely bad luck.
Lin, you shall accompany Vicious on this journey.
- Yes.
- Wang Long! Callisto is a frigid planet, Vicious.
You'll need special clothing for the arctic conditions.
Cold climates do not concern me.
True, your heart is colder than any planet.
Colder than the eye of a snake about to strike.
Vicious.
Remember, a snake cannot eat a dragon.
I'll be fine by myself.
I'm going with you.
Then be aware.
If you want to survive, you'll have to betray me at times.
No, never.
That would go against the will of Van.
Such old-fashioned thinking makes me nauseous.
Those damn corpses.
I will protect you for the honor of the Red Dragon.
Honor, huh? Well then, it's up to me to sever them all.
Man, it's hot.
Where is everyone? What a depressing group.
What's with the humidity level? It's so muggy, I couldn't sleep.
We're experiencing technical difficulties.
It'd be hard to see you, so I'm leaving without saying goodbye.
Please, please, do not look for me.
Free at last.
She sucked all the antifreeze from the cooling system.
It'll be offline for at least half a day.
After this stunt, we're not gonna look for her, right? She emptied out the safe, too.
Nana, hachi, kyu, konichiwa to you Are you sure you're looking for Faye? Ichi, zero, ichi, ichi, sayonara Or are you just wasting time? Is there anything else to do right now? - Ah! Success! - Is it her? Who could this be Let's see code name Julia! Where's that coming from?! Let's see It's pretty close.
Looks like the Blue Crow on Callisto.
Who's receiving it?! I got cut off.
Hey, wait! But there aren't any girls at the Blue Crow? Really? No kidding! Hey, Spike! Am I done now? Hey, hold on, Spike! That's a common woman's name.
Come on, now.
What about Faye? We can't just leave her.
This is a lawless region.
A woman can't make it out there all alone.
- You know I'm right, Spike.
- You're worried about Faye? I'm worried, all right.
About the money she took! I want it back! Spike! - I'm gonna go look.
- You're not! I'm gonna go look for my woman.
You can go look for the other one.
So you're not gonna help me, are you.
That's it! You've really gone too far.
Then don't come back.
There won't be a place for you.
That's your call, pal.
Anyway, at least you won't be lonely now.
- Not with your weird roommates.
- My roommates? That's why you've been staying here? You're being stupid! It's been three years since I teamed up with you, but I never knew you had such ridiculous ideas about this thing! What a joke! And I thought you were the one who was lonely! I'm glad we cleared that up.
Good riddance! Least I'll be able to keep some food in the place now! I never did understand you, right to the very end! I don't understand either.
Goodbye! I don't know any woman.
Like I'd know! Not even a rumor? I don't have any luck with them, I'll tell you that.
I'd rather hook up with a spiny armadillo! Have you heard the name Julia mentioned? You should've asked me that right off.
There's a Julia out in front of Tony's place every night.
Sorry, sirrah.
I'm not Julia.
Ju-li-us.
My name's Julius.
My mistake.
Well, if you're looking for company, you're just my type.
Thanks, but I already have plans.
You know, Gren's really the one who might be able to help.
- I've seen him with women on occasion.
- Gren? - Whew, it's cold.
- Yeah, let's call it a night.
Oh, a customer? Afraid not, darling.
Can't you see he's straight? Come on, let's try another corner.
Wait, who's Gren? Where is he? You want to be my date? He plays sax at the Blue Crow.
Take care.
Yeah, that was a pretty close one.
If someone sneezes and no one says "take care," that person will turn into a fairy.
That's what they say around here, you know.
Then there's no problem.
I'm already a fairy.
Don't you know that? I'm not as simple as I seem, Mr.
Saxophone.
Women aren't my style, I'm sorry.
Oh? What a pity.
However, the others are all quite interested.
Didn't you know? There are no women in this town.
Mmm, then I should be very popular.
You should be very careful.
Thanks for the tip, Mr.
Saxophone.
I'm searching for something.
There's nothing around here.
Just some stale bread, a broken-down car, and some old whiskey that tastes like gasoline.
Ever met a guy named Gren? Can't say that I have.
Oh well.
So, you boys need something? - You're Vicious.
- What did you say?! Where's the money? Hand it over, or you won't live to spend it! You think I'm Vicious? You don't know what vicious is! Start talking! Why the hell do you think I'm Vicious? I heard a big deal was coming down for some lunar Red Eye.
They said Gren was selling it to Vicious for big bucks.
I wanted to get my hands on the money! Take a look.
Do I really look like I have money? Why not? All foreigners are rich.
And the code named Julia? Sounds like some sleazy wench's name, doesn't it? Yeah, it really does.
Hi, amigos! All 300,000 bounty hunters in the star system I want a cowboy.
Forget it.
There are no bounties heads around here.
Whiskey with light cream.
That kinda cowboy.
Right.
Yeah, you couldn't possibly be a bounty hunter, could you.
Who's our new bounty head today? Grencia Mars Elijah Guo Eckener.
- What a long name! - He escaped from prison three years ago, and the statute of limitations is about to run out.
- And the bounty? - Sho' nuff, it's now double high! Don't miss this opportunity! Though I hate to admit it, I kinda hate to see him go.
What a shame.
Whoa! Judy, what are you saying? This buckaroo's an escaped convict! I'm aware of that.
But my word, what a handsome guy.
- Oh, just look at his picture! - Let's see Are you kidding? Hey, Sp-- Hey, listen, can you turn that thing off? Calm down.
Sorry about that.
Don't worry.
That guy passed out on the bar over there is a cop.
Yeah, and what does that mean? Actually, there's a bounty on my head, too.
This place is a hideout for all kinds of fugitives.
- That's fascinating.
- So you can rest easy.
No worries.
Who, me? What's the deal? I wanted to work off all this frustration, but no one's coming.
Oh, yay! You're all here.
Madam, your appearance is harmful to the eyes.
Or are you trying to entice us? Oops, you found me out.
Just hold on a minute.
If I don't put these on, I just might chip a nail, you know.
OK, here we go.
Come here! Hurry! Mr.
Saxophone! Why did you bring me here? Because you said you were a fairy.
Why did you come with me? 'Cause I've got no place to stay.
Oh.
And you trust me, just like that? You said you weren't interested in women.
I could take your money.
Or try to kill you.
Good luck.
Despite how I may look, I'm not such easy prey.
I'm afraid it's broken.
You came to such a slummy neighborhood alone? I am alone.
I don't need any comrades.
They're not worth it.
I end up worrying about things I shouldn't You know, me being such a prize and all that.
All the guys end up fighting over me like dogs.
They say humans are social animals.
They can't live alone.
But you can live pretty well by yourself.
I tell you, instead of feeling alone in a group, it's better to have real solitude all by yourself.
When I'm dealing with them, I swear, it's nothing but trouble.
And I get nothing out of it.
So it doesn't matter if I'm there or not, right? You were just afraid they'd abandon you.
So you abandoned them.
You distanced yourself from the whole thing.
You're a strange one, aren't you.
You think so? I don't know why I'm telling you all this.
I feel like I'm in a confession booth.
You're not a preacher by any chance, are you? No.
Take care, Faye.
You wanna take a shower? No, thanks.
Could be peeping toms around here.
Make sure you're not one of them.
Well, I can't really guarantee that now.
Gren, where are you? Vicious! I'm out with honroutou along with mangan and the reverse dragon.
It's 32,000.
I'll be waiting.
Are you seeing Julia behind my back? Spike! Lin.
You've gotten pretty big.
He doesn't work under you anymore, Spike.
Things are different now.
Like you using her name for your scummy drug deals? I truly pity her for that.
If there's anyone who needs pity here, it's you.
We still haven't settled the score from last time.
Make your move.
Lin, get outta the way! Julia was here.
Right in this town.
Step aside, Lin! Lin A woman? Which one are you? I'm both at once, and I am neither one.
Aishiteta to nageku ni wa Amari ni mo toki wa sugite shimatta Mada kokoro no hokorobi o Iyasenu mama kaze ga fuiteru Kawaita hitomi de dareka naite kure The real folk blues Hontou no kanashimi ga shiritai dake Doro no kawa ni tsukatta Jinsei mo waruku wa nai Ichido kiri de owarunara Hey how are men and women different? Hmm I think women are hiding more vital secrets than men are.
Uh-huh but there are women who aren't feminine.
And men who aren't masculine.
What about those who aren't usually feminine, but show that side of themselves in some chance circumstance? - I like that.
- Really? - I'm not talking about you.
- Who then? Maybe it's me! Next episode: "Jupiter Jazz, Part 2.
" Maybe it's me!
