Tokyo Story Quotes
It was such a beautiful dawn.
But if I had known things would come to this, I'd have been kinder to her while she was alive.
Anyway, this place is meant for the younger generation.
Tomi Hirayama: - What are you going to be when you grow up? A doctor like your father?
Tomi Hirayama: By the time you become a doctor, I wonder if I'll still be here.
Kyoko: I think they should have stayed a bit longer.
Noriko: But they're busy.
Kyoko: They're selfish. Demanding things and leaving like this.
Noriko: They have their own affairs.
Kyoko: But you have yours too. They're selfish.
Noriko: But Kyoko...
Kyoko: Wanting her clothes right after her death. I felt so sorry for poor mother. Even strangers would have been more considerate!
Noriko: But look Kyoko. At your age I thought so too. But children do drift away from their parents. A woman has her own life, apart from her parents, when she becomes Shige's age. She meant no harm I'm sure. They have to look after their own lives.
Kyoko: I wonder: I won't ever be like that. Then what's the point of family?
Noriko: But children become like that, gradually.
Kyoko: Then... you, too?
Noriko: I may become like that in spite of myself.
Kyoko: Isn't life disappointing?
Noriko: Yes, it is.
Kurazo Kaneko: I brought some cakes for them.
Kurazo Kaneko: Have one. They're good.
Shige Kaneko: They don't need such expensive cakes.
Kurazo Kaneko: Good, eh?
Shige Kaneko: Good, but too expensive. Crackers would have been good enough for them.
Kurazo Kaneko: But they had crackers yesterday.
Shige Kaneko: Mama, you've grown taller.
Tomi Hirayama: Don't be silly. How could I have grown?
Shige Kaneko: But you have, and you're even fatter.
Shige Kaneko: She was so big when I was little that I used to feel ashamed in front of my friends. Once in school, a chair broke under her.
Tomi Hirayama: Oh, that chair was already broken.
Shige Kaneko: She still thinks that.
Kurazo Kaneko: We can't leave them there all night.
Shige Kaneko: It can't be helped, can it?
Kurazo Kaneko: Let's have Kiyo come down and we'll put them upstairs.
Shige Kaneko: They're too drunk to make it.
Kurazo Kaneko: What will we do, then?
Shige Kaneko: What a mess.
Shige Kaneko: You sleep upstairs. I'll put them here.
Shige Kaneko: What a bother. Why didn't he tell me he was coming back? So late and so drunk! I hate drunkards. With a stranger, too. Oh, this is disturbing.
