Ghost In The Shell 2: Innocence
Script - Dialogue Transcript
Voila! Finally, the Ghost In The Shell 2: Innocence
script is here for all you quotes spouting fans of the movie directed by anime master
Mamoru Oshii This script is a transcript that was painstakingly
transcribed using the screenplay and/or viewings of Ghost In The Shell 2: Innocence. I know, I know, I still need to get the cast names in there and I'll be eternally
tweaking it, so if you have any corrections, feel free to
drop me a line. You won't
hurt my feelings. Honest.
If our gods and our hopes are
nothing but scientific phenomena,then it must be said that our love
is scientific as well - "L'Eve Future"
Arrival on the accident site
Now start the live broadcasting
What's the situation?
In that apartment, the first site,
The victim was murdered,
Killer ran away
In the second site,
police officers were killed
All entrances blocked,
We're starting a siege in minutes
Damned officers of th Section
There will be more casualty now.
Telecom got in,
Do we need information support?
First Police, here comes Telecom agents
We must be very careful
About Robot Murder
There has been murders during this week
All victims have reset their robots
All of them are Model from Rox Corporation
The model is a test version for evaluation only.
The customers got one for free
after signing a contract with Rox
Now all the machines were recalled
According to reports
There is nothing wrong with these machines
just such kind of explanation
New model robots attacked their
masters for unexplained reasons
The producer recalled these machines in a panic
They now face charges
from the victims' family
Some mistakes could result in many lawsuits
and huge compensation fees
So that is why the th Section was
authorized to handle this problem
Do you understand?
It's your duty to understand
Now there are reasons for th Section's intervention
First, None of victims' families have taken any action
All accidents alike
have been imparled between both sides
Two of the victims are politicians
And one is a retired police officer
Considering such a possibility
the th Section will face a challenge
It's our duty to investigate this case
Let's start from the victims
First you must check the machines with problems
Don't ask anything, just go
I want to tell you, I am not a volunteer
There are so much that I should learn from you, Major
I don't think so
We lost all traces
This person only has his brain for nature part
It's not likely that this man exists as a human being
His arm, leg and computer
are spare parts from the government
The classified information in the computer,
and all similar to this,
Belonged to the government
They are eager to reclaim the memory
so his life was not belonged to himself
Where shall we start?
Rox Corporation is located to the north
We'd better start our investigation there
About the robot destroyed by that madam yesterday
Two of our young men were killed also
You shouldn't forget this
We've come here directly for this
Identification Room is located on the
right side of th floor corridor
Need me to show you the way?
No, thanks. I don't come here for amusement
Destruction pursues the great
especially at the easiest moment
It is a hard time for you
To be arranged to one trouble team
but it seems you don't hate this position
It's terrible for me to remember my previous appearance
This is not your mirror's fault
The mirror only makes you confused
We can be reference with one another
It's pointless to come frequently
I don't have to cooperate.
I will arrest you if you don't cooperate.
I am from th Section
Who's the horrible man you are talking with?
The guy who blasted the robot
All of it with a . caliber gun
So the damaged robot could be easy to recover
policemen of are victims
The robots tried to commit suicide before murder
What's this about suicide?
Miss Halloway, What about suicide?
If the machine failed
Is it possible for them to attack people?
This situation has been considered by Three Laws of Robot
So they should be harmless to people
It is called Self-Existence
The better description should be self-destruction, no?
Thinking made human beings different from machines
Is the self-destruction a special function for this model?
That's not completely right
Those years, more gadgets for robots
appeared in haste
we have too many human-shaped robots
Virus, Microbe Pollution
Man-made mistakes during production
Problems due to age
Many reasons, but
The main reason is that people discard robots
They tire of old robots
Keep buying newer models
And then discard them when problem occurs
Robots do not want to be discarded
Is that true?
Human beings are different from robots
but it's not as simple as black and white
Humankind is selfish
Industry robots are mostly different from humans
But domestic robots are deeply affected
by utilitarianism and pragmatism
Why they are human-shaped?
Based on the most ideal human body
Why this decision?
It's to make a robot in his own image.
Have you got children?
Children always violate adult regulation
They have egos
Acting with consciousness for themselves
When human being is a child
What's his role in exploration?
with a human body, or human-shaped?
Although all girls love dolls,
those dolls are not for practicing
Girls don't practice baby-sitting
They just try to find common places between
doll games and baby-sitting
What are you talking about?
Baby-sitting a kid implies making a human, by a human
That's an old dream
That's the shortest way to realize this dream
I don't agree with this idea
Children are not dolls!
humankind and machine,
difference is a life-form and nonlife-form
A doll is the same as my daughter
who died when she was years old
I named her France, and loved her deeply
Some people told me the same thing
Shall we change to a realistic topic?
About the Model Robot from ROX corporation
I would like to know more about it
That's all right
High quality products
Although these are test versions
They are special mode
Yeah, with some unnecessary parts
What kind of parts?
just for immoral interest
Is this illegal?
All right, so their family doesn't charge
When the robot is reset, their data bank
will erase all information
The producer did this just to protect their technology,
just a common measure
But the voice data will be kept,
you want to hear?
Help me, Help me
Help me, Help me
Thanks for your help
May I ask a question?
I neither gave any birth nor baby-sat any kid
That means, I never registered my ovum
Thank you, Miss
Don't call me Miss
She didn't look like a technical grandmom
who only writes her emotions in report sheets
I often wrote report sheets too
Don't you think our investigation
is going to slow?
Anyway, you must protect that computer for th Section
The relationship with grandmother was over
Who's your ideal woman?
Actually, I like women older than me
There are so many in the street
Accident in area
The victim is a Keeper of ROX
The team will be there within minutes
The spring always pass quickly
Koka and Lukuou will be back after a sandwich snack
This is the situation minutes ago
How did you teach these rookies?
There is nothing more important than teaching
Read the situation now
This is the victim's image
Jack Walkson, Keeper Director of ROX Corporation
He lost contact with other people after asking leave days ago
This robot's contract ended days ago
Weapons used by criminal are kitchen knives
We checked neighbourhood parking records
Try to verify with underground force
Seven cards are found in victim's jacket
We are now looking for their source
. calibre pistol
It seems no one has used the gun recently
Was this a meaningless waste?
Maybe some smart guy faked it
We will arrive in seconds
Don't play a joke on me
The rest of the work depends on you
We leave site to
Today is my daughter's birthday
But I have bought nothing
Let me drive you back
You've made a mistake, Ishikawa
A daughter's birthday is the most important
You looked happy
It's the first time you didn't talk nonsense
Because the body was incomplete, so I come
OK, help yourself, we are leaving
Why give the case to local police?
Because that guy is involved
We found it, in the refrigerator
Heart, liver, kidney and pancreas
After half a year, fresh dog food has been dry
You call this food?
You were his partner, weren't you?
I would rather go with a recruit than him
There are only complaints with him
You are a partner less tough than Major
Ishikawa, you talk too much lately
Maybe dry dog food was not that bad
Considering nutrition balance,
that would be a good choice
Impact to the neckbone has caused rupture and death
Kitchen knives aren't the cause of death,
They were used for dismembeing the body
So the killer dismembered the body after murder
That seems to be true
The stuff we found in the refrigerator
are the victim's bowels
He suffered from gastritis,
and hepatocirrhosis due to chronic alcoholism
Why did the killer disassemble the victim's body
in this detailed way?
The killer may be a psycho
Or it indicates a strong desire to revenge
Then the killer wasn't professional
And that twisted door handle?
Analysis report suggests it's created by a NR artificial arm,
made in China
crab pincers shape
Is that for military purpose?
It should be inferior model from black market
And all the pictures were confirmed
What about the car?
A mulit-illegal modified car...
According to parking records,
The car belongs to a violent organization, Human Society
This car has appeared several times in previous cases
What a Human Society!
What's their motive?
What the hell does Human Society want?
This was an old, voilent Japanese organization
Drugs, prostitutes, gambling
They're a part of all kinds of illegal business
days ago, captain tried to arrest their boss
Now he is in charge of this case
How could they make this decision!
In organization, only the revenger of a predecessor's
death could be recognized as the successor
Could the victim foresee his death?
What's the reason for him to lurk in Human Society?
All computer data is erased
This is also your investigation object
Is the killer using robots to
mislead our investigation?
At this time, all victims have no relationship
with each other, or political-concerned
And we almost have nothing to show for it.
Adding this case,
you first investigate these victims
Other people return to previous positions.
Come to my office before you leave
What's the situation?
Anyway, we must find the relationship between
Human Society and Rox Corporation
It is very important to undertake
psychological interactive verification
But I am not a computer psychologist
You don't need to change professions
when trying to comprehend another subject.
You have family?
Now do you feel happy?
Yeah.. that is it
Most people are between happy and unhappy
They never give up their will for survival
What do you mean?
When I saw that guy,
I remembered Major before her missing
Solitary makes Evil
need few things
Just like the elephant in the forest
Director, why did you choose me?
You were recommended by the local department
What does this mean?
You don't need to change professions
when trying to comprehend another subject.
That is right
You cannot live with the rule of a great man
Shall we start a war?
You don't need to change into a rascal
if you are going to rascal's place
Weapons are necessary
We should prepare before going out
Listen to my words
Do you hate gangs?
I do too
I can only tell you this
I told you, we are going to a gang's place
We don't need to change into gangsters
but a weapon is necessary
I have a family
A bachelor could be better
We'll go together
We are partners,
so you'd better tell me your plan
Listen to me,
Don't fire unless you have to
I got it
Let's go, partner
What, is that you?
Bring him here
I said unless you have to
Did he intend to mislead our eyesight?
I hate these computers
What's the matter?
How can we attack in this
dark and narrow staircase?
Rush fast, I'll go first
I'll go first, you're too big
This bomb is a gift for you
In such a wide riot
You can't even kill people
with bullet-proofed vests
Are you a woman?
This is not only for the death of Keeper Director
Tell me everything about ROX Corporation,
as much as you know
Come on, crab shit,
you're not qualified to be my opponent
That's just an easy job, idiot
Tell me where the Keeper Director is
Or I will hit you with my hand
I haven't been there for years
I don't even know what my predeccesors
did in that corporation
Partner, you still alive?
My wife and my daughter's face became clear in my brain
But this guy is neither your wife nor your daughter
He is Death
I told you to investigate
But you made this illegal
I don't want you picking fights with gangsters.
This city is not a jungle
And you are not people-killing special agents
Are you still angry?
I didn't expect you'd save my life
After being your partner,
I would die hundred times
We're an investigation team of men
Nobody cares what we did
I have to find criminal evidence
relating to the ROX Corporation
So is that what you did?
If he is really angry, we should have been fired
Now that should be enough
Now excuse me.
Trampled by Quillson
You should reset the right arm by yourself
Increase defense and the shooting integrity system
It's probably due to malfunction
In this case, you should reset to default position
Where's my previous arm?
Don't speak nonsense
This arm is made with organic material,
especially tuned to your DNA
Overload usage may cause initialization
Get out! Wait
Why do you have my dog?
I went to your home
Couldn't find the host
but I did find a hungry dog
That made me feel sorry for it.
How generous of you
to leave your dog alone.
I took it to my home
My daughter was happy, but my wife
got angry because it soiled the carpet
When did you put me under surveillance?
All right, that's not your problem
I don't feel comfortable being watched
But how can you ignore it?
If you hate, do not hate the old man
Is it recreated?
Original breed should be stronger
This breed is created by test-tube
It comes from a most ancient breed
Does this come from a computer, really?
What a persistent life
That's why I said dry dog food is better
It's its favorite
And it's only on sale in that store
It looked happy, bouncing a lot
You shot bullets
in that store
He is not insane
This man was a good hunter
Besides the Major
Shall I tell you the reason he missed my head?
They didn't want to kill you,
it was just a challenge
You picked fighting in the place of Human Society
Over people dead or wounded
The store was shot up in the same day
Are you crazy, or is your computer malfunctional?
Wait, Did you feel attacked?
This matter was not an independent accident
From this, we can understand
The significance of th Section
What he said is right
We were ordered to continue investigation
But we won't need evidence hereafter
And without any official support
It seems that we have to go directly to ROX Corporation
Quick victory keeps no secretary
Go to the north as soon as possible
people are not enough
And... What about this dog?
This matter that
I will take care of.
And yet you still time to feed your dog.
Come on, mind your own business
The biggest information city in the eastern-most area
A particularly prosperous economic zone
Just this colony
Nationalism evanesced in vagueness
Now this place is a paradise for
Even Union Nations Cyber Police,
and Telecom Agents from ASEAN
can't get their hands here
I remembered those words,
Act as an individual
Represent with the same inheritance gene
It looks like the nest of the spider
Just like how an actinozoan changes into the coral reef
The essence of life lies in the continuance of genes
What about social culture and expanded memory system
The city looks like huge exterior memory sets
There should be many people with this idea
Adding me, the number could exceed
the number of sand dust.
It's written in verse Psalms of the Old Testament
I will check it
It seems you are inclined to remember trivia.
I don't want to hear this again
Now you are over ROX Corporation
After a long trip, it's about time for a visit
Flight is over, we are in the process of landing
They will fly as leaves during Autumn
Gnarring to the chaos
Now it is your turn, but we are not Satan
You're great man now, my position has been yours
I will never forget your kindness
Forgive me, Mister Batou
It's inappropriate to call me Mister
Forgive me, Please
You are the benefactor of my whole life
Do you know that asshole Kim?
I don't know such a person
Many people have this name
The Kim I am looking for is unique
In our business,
we make promises
There are kinds
One is for keeping a secret,
The other is for keeping truth
Both of them are promises,
Which one is yours?
They say there is no honesty without secrets
Let me ask again,
Do you know that asshole Kim?
I don't know such a person
People are just like puppets on the stage
Beginning from birth, Ending at death
Puppet falls when the strings break
They had been a long-term contractor with the Army
A man can't reach when he is at the top,
or when he is under
Just like a man lying on the roadside
Regardless of whether they had been special force
or electronic disturbance specialist
Secret arm sale, and other achievements
The come-off will be the same
all roads end at the tomb
A characteristic man
It is impossible for a robot to chang into a horse after a field trip
This asshole can only demolish everything around him
Batou, the highest sanctum
We are late
The brain has been burned out from attack and defense actions
It doesn't help.
According to the will
in my funeral,
All artificial flowers and birds
should be rejected
Don't sleep like a dead man
Confucius told us not to sleep like dead men
I have no time for your nonsense
It has been a long time since our last meeting
Are you here for official business?
They started Robot production
from the very beginning
Advanced robots brought a rapid expansion
to this corporation
Politicians and senior officers got
They became alert
as the government paid attention to the business
Assembly lines were shut down
Perhaps they transferred assembly lines
to that multi-flag ship
And kept producing their robots
Are you so depressed that you want to commit suicide?
It's a big problem if true
Eliminating human soul, producing human-shaped puppets
I can't imagine what they are thinking
If there is a perfect man
Like a body without a soul
A body until final abrasion
This is why Cyborg waste grows
The human form is eternally beautiful
No, they should not appear in the shape of a child.
Because human beings have incomplete perception
It is impossible for them to understand
the inconsistency of reality
They have neither this consciousness
Nor the unlimited tendency
Only robots or a God can make this true
Shall we talk about official business?
There is only one creature
who can be compared with a robot or God
Is it animal?
A creature with self-consciousness stronger than we are.
With no negative emotions
A happy unconsciousness
To these birds depending on fruit
It is even harder than becoming God
Changing into dolls as the dead
That is the reason
You don't know death
before you know life
Confucius said something like this
There are few people who understand Death
Most people keep unconscious,
they are used to a stupid life
People don't even have purposes for dying.
Their lives fade away while waiting for death.
So Kim chose to change himself into a full cyborg
They had been special force,
or electronic disturbance specialist
Secret arm sale, and other achievements
All will be ended at the tomb
A characteristic man
It is impossible for a robot to change into a horse after a field trip
Compliments to people who shall die today
Sounds like an advertisement
It makes people uncomfortable
I got it
Look outside, these things look alive
Are they really alive?
These lifeless things seem alive
Where does a robot's pain come from?
They are robots
made by human beings
Very simple material made by human beings
The terror to reset a robot
is just the essence of human being
A shadow between existence and non-existence
Stop that, let's talk about official business
It's also a science to know life
We created this terror by ourselves
In nature, humankind is too young
It's quite simple to reset a machine
made by a human being
"They are trying to make persistent active specimen"
From an th century robotics theory
Because the realization of computerization and cyborgs
Even the appearance of exterior memory sets
The biological limitation of humankind was broken
through excessive self-mechanization
Humanity has overcome Darwin's Natural Selection
Human beings have overcame evolution
by their own means.
Sublimation of consciousness
Born from self-consciousness
A dream to go beyond Nature
Replacing the body with hardware
That's the beginning of a Nightmare
God is always located in geometry
What do you feel?
Who am I?
In a computer-like maze,
you are confused by computer
Fortune comes with Misfortune times
Don't look at anything
before you want it
Don't listen to anything
Just wait for the end
So we visited this place times
The first omen should be the final end?
There is no time for explanation
When did you find out?
We are fooled by the swindler
who is waiting for our arrival
You can be an electronic specialist
but I am an elite spy
with my guardian watching over me
You stupid, clumsy exterior memory sets
Check your memory
If that is really
this robot wrote "AEMAETH" on the ground
That means getting energy from truth
But when the prefix "AE" was erased,
we saw "MEATH"
That means death, from dust to dust.
That's not real
Our trap has been intruded
What the hell! It is faked as real
So I told you it is my guardian
The game is over, Kim, show yourself
This guy is just an ordinary robot
Kim, you cannot defeat me
Batou, is this a fake too?
Have you got enough confidence?
Humanity is pursuing the dream of life
Is it a dream or a ghost?
I am a man useless, the same as you
I wear shoes different from you
I don't believe in ghosts
Are you suffering from schizophrenia?
I have to destroy your remains
Prepare for death
Your physical functions will cease
Is it really a physical reset phenomenon?
It is neither memory nor imagination
It's what it should be
You have to understand before you go further
The time cannot be saved, so it is hard
Memory shared computerization along with exterior memory sets
When you go home
Are the wife and daughter real?
Or I am just a lonely individual?
Or am I just making up the dream of a family?
Is there any way to make sure?
I knew, but for what?
I have to know his purpose
I come here for work
That's an experience of virtual image
When I get freaked in the food store
Maybe it is caused by computerization
just like what Ishikawa said
Such a realistic guy may not be here
The same idea
I expected this from the beginning
They wanted to intrude us
Kim, this man is smart
We will lose if he escapes
Who's your guardian angel?
He is gone
In the cyber world
In huge network systems,
there is one area which integrates all domains
You want to verify your existence?
You got a daughter
When we are in the jungle
Kim knew this
I am sure of one thing
What is it?
I am your partner
Are you afraid?
It's not like what you are thinking
I want to go back alive, to my daughter
But you cannot leave your job undone
Shall we continue?
I will collect all data evidence
for ROX Corporation's guilt
If this accusation is successful
All computer rules must be broken up
Our investigation was illegal
The matter caused serial murders
We have to find evidence for criminal penalty
But Kim cut off all clues
His computer is linked to ROX Corporation
We must capture all of them
and destroy them.
People have always been talking
about doing the right thing.
Now is time for battle
Violence comes after the failure of negotiation
Hey, this explanation is different
from our trip to gangster place
He is here
I expect nothing from you
Birds fly in the air
fishes dive in the water
Use this body to finish something
It is deep here, very dangerous
I had a friend who liked diving very much
I don't know what you are thinking
May I introduce Lin as your girl friend?
No one goes back alive from that ship
I don't know what you're thinking
Just go ahead
Contact after seconds
The disturbance signal will feed back for seconds only
This guy is linked to the Security Director's computer
Send back more information if you get in
Just follow me
Of course, the older one started invasion,
You are not a lovely guy
nd level security system reset
Computer activity searching initialized in all facility

All facility in resetting,

Battle arm loading system, initialized
Warning... abnormal body active in line THO
All security armed
Move to that line, repeat..
Soul Phenomenon happened
Haven't see you for a time, Major
What should I call you?
This is only a part of me,
There is not enough capacity in this computer
I can only load battle system and arm defense system
So I have to spare emotion and voice
meters away from here
there should be an emergency terminal
We can linkup there and capture all system
Hurry up, I'll take care of this place
Just like before
"Who gives me a mirror"
"The ghost will be visible in the mirror"
It is not the time for reflection
We don't have much ammo left
"Real time mirror can tell"
Hey, are you ok?
This ship will be ours,
it is just a matter of time
Linked to supply terminal system
Stop arm function before full control
We can only depend on Batou's . gun
Ammo reserve, only magazine
It seems our opponent will not surrender
Abnormal linking activity in ship
Tracing for linking point, defense action started
Too many signals from multiple terminals
No computer activity increased at all terminal
Checking for all exterior linking point
All linking points cut off except base facility
All exterior physical parts isolated from this ship
Emergency defense system inaccessible
Long distance initialization failed
Expansive Virus get in concourse
Defense of system area failed
System reset ready
st level data quarantine started
Many linking points found in the core system
Interactive tracing failed
All exterior links cut off
This ship is under control
Are we successful?
Now this ship is no longer controlled by the north
The nearest country sent force is coming in
This ship could incriminate ROX
Do we still have time for investigation?
Found Naval frigate
They are informed
Shall we go to see the true face of ROX Corporation
Have you already known it?
Batou, you want to go with us?
No voice, electronic wave screened out
They can produce many animal examples
but that will destroy the brain
This technology was prohibited
The Human Society supplies children
who will be neutralized here
They become ghost faces eventually
That is the secret
You come to save me at last,
Walkson told me
He said, the police will come to save me
I came here when I was in the th grade,
Suvalla was in the th grade
I can hear nothing, or say nothing
The murdered Director modified
the robot program for this child
but he was killed soon
Nobody will notice this without robot case
Then who will save me?
We did not expect sacrifice
It seems unreal
How could it be, if a robot has no soul
I can't imagine
I never wanted to be a robot
"When you cried for birds,
you cried for yourself"
"People with voice is happy"
If a robot has his own voice
He may cry, I don't want to be human being
Ask yourself now
do you feel happy?
This scene has put me in a reminiscent mood
I don't have this feeling, at least not now
"Solitary rejects evil"
"Need few things"
"Just like the elephant in forest"
Don't forget, Batou
When you get online
I will be with you
That ship is out
Your guardian angel?
Need me to write a report?
I will pick you up at : am tomorrow
I cannot get back without a gift
Do you want to come in?
I'm indifferent to family parties.
Have you got any gift for me?
I did not forget this
