QUOTES FROM Kaori Momoi CHARACTERS

Mother says: I'm entitled to do as i choose.

Mother says: I'm entitled to do as I choose.

Hatsumomo says: But you promised the okiya to Pumpkin!

Mother says: Look at her, still a virgin maiko. [Pumpkin gets up and runs off]

Hatsumomo says: Pumpkin! [Hatsumomo tries unsuccessfully to pull her back]

Sayuri says: Can't you adopt us both?

Mother says: Quiet Sayuri. Now I'm no fool. Pumpkin would only be Hatsumomo's puppet. How long will it take before you kick us out on the street.

Hatsumomo says: I have given you my life.

Mother says: Yes your impudence, your foul temper.

Hatsumomo says: Who paid for the silk on your back. The rice in your bowl. The tobacco in that pipe of your!? WHO?!

Mother says: Don't exaggerate! You have not even had a danna.

Mother says: An odd picture isn't it? Hatsumomo sweeping into tea house after tea house with out little pumpkin and the Mameha with our maid.

Mother says: Besides I can always sell Chiyo to Mrs. Tatsuyo.

Mameha says: With your eye for beauty and nose for talent, surely you can see what a terrible waste that would be.

Mother says: If you are not the kind-hearted geisha i know you to be, I might think you were scheming against Hatsumomo.

Mameha says: Then I'm grateful, Mrs. Nitta, that you do not have a suspicious mind.

Mother says: Perhaps you can peak my interest with...

Mameha says: Yes?

Mother says: Your offer?

Mameha says: I will cover Chiyo's schooling, all her expenses, until after her debut.

Mother says: Now I am confident you are teasing.

Mameha says: I cannot be more sincere. If Chiyo hasn't paid off her debt within 6 months after her debut...

Mother says: No, impossible, too little time!

Mameha says: Then I will pay you twice over.

Mother says: What? No geisha could ever...

Mother says: Dr. Muri is very expensive. You seem to be racking up quite a debt. Huh? Kimono destroyed, geisha school, rice and pickle, train ticket, Mr. Bekku. All this on top of the money I paid to Mr. Tanaka. And for what? And now I hear that your sister has run away. She didn't wait for you. And now she can never come back. You must forget that you ever had a sister. Hmm? [grabs a small package and gives it to Chiyo] We are you only family now.

Auntie says: [Chiyo opens it and pauses. Auntie grabs it and reads] "Dear Satsu and little Chiyo, As one who was once an orphan child myself," this humble person is sorry to inform you that "six weeks after you left for you new life in Miyako, the suffering of you honor mother came to an end. And only a few weeks afterwards, your honor father departed this world as well." This humble person is "confident, both your honor parents have found their place in paradise...[reading drifts out]

Hatsumomo says: Hmm, what is it? 20 yen? 30?

Mother says: This can't be the right amount.

Mameha says: I trust you agree. I have won the wager. Sayuri's made history. No mizuagi has ever been sold for more, not even mine. 15,000 yen.

Hatsumomo says: Who is responsible for this?! [slams the poster on the table]

Mother says: Ask Mameha.

Hatsumomo says: I'm asking you okasan.

Pumpkin says: How come Sayuri gets to be the lead?

Mother says: It's your own fault. You should practice more.
