Paprika

Paprika (パプリカ) is a Japanese animated science fiction film, based on Yasutaka Tsutsui's 1993 novel about a female research psychologist involved in a project to develop a device that will permit therapists to help patients by entering their dreams.

Some of the quotes below are insane ramblings induced by the DC Mini, a device that allows a one to enter another person's dreams.

JapaneseEdit

Doctor Atsuko "Paprika" ChibaEdit

  • (first line of the film) It's the greatest show time!
  • (to Tokita) You guys really are alike. You and Himuro. You get preoccupied with what you want to do and ignore what you have to do. Don't you understand that your irresponsibility cost lives? Of course not. Nothing can get through all that fat. And now what? "Isn't it wonderful"? "A mind for science"? Don't make me laugh. How can a mad scientist know what a human mind is? If you want to be the king of geeks with your bloated ego, then just keep up all this and indulge in your freakish masturbation!
  • (to Osanai) Oedipus is the perfect look for a man completely controlled by The Chairman!

Doctor Toratarō ShimaEdit

  • Discipline calls for a search of the DC Mini rather than Paprika's bikini. This is true happiness.
  • Even the five court ladies danced in sync to the frog's flutes and drums. The whirlwind of recycled paper was a sight to see. It was like computer graphics. That I don't support Technicolor parfaits and snobby petit bourgeois is common knowledge in Oceania! Now is the time to return home to the blue sky! The confetti will dance around the shrine gates. The mailbox and the refrigerator will lead the way! Anyone who cares about expiration dates will not get in the way of the glory train! They need to fully realize the lives of the triangle rulers! Now, this festival was decided by the third grade class with the telephoto camera! Move forward! Come together! I am the ultimate governor!
  • You're the feisty country girl I saved some time ago. How are you? If he was not home when i passed by around 7:30, then he probably disappeared into the instant noodle soup.

Doctor Kōsaku TokitaEdit

  • The ecstasy that blooms in synapses is Paprika-brand milk fat! 5% is the norm. The safety net of the ocean is nonlinear, even with what crabs dream of! Lets go!
  • An overweight spirit needs no diet! Go forward, superhero, to anywhere you please!
  • The one I've been waiting for since historic times! Your flute's melody is a sound for sore neurons!
  • A fragrant fat is a first class lunch! (eats Atsuko) It needs a little more spice. Maybe a little paprika?
  • Well-rounded achievement is missing a spice. Paprika found!

Detective KonakawaEdit

  • (as the parade seeps into his dream) Paprika, is the inside of my head this messed up?

Doctor Morio OsanaiEdit

  • Don't make me get rough with you.
  • (to Paprika) Shut your mouth!
  • Please spare her! Not her. Not her.
  • But sir, I love her.

The ChairmanEdit

  • This breath seethes in the joy of life. I will not allow arrogant scientific technology to intrude in this holy ground.
  • The dreams are horrified... that their safe refuge is destroyed by technology.
  • In a world of inhumane reality, it is the only humane sanctuary left. That is a dream. That parade is full of refugees who were unwillingly chased out of reality. I am protecting them. I am the guardian of dreams. My duty is to mete out justice to terrorists like you, Paprika.
  • (as a gigantic whale) That's right, keep running. There are no boundaries to dreams. The spirit will be freed from the constraints of the body... and gain limitless freedom. Including me! I will also be free!

Doctor Kei HimuroEdit

  • The sun during midday will light up the dark night. Night dreams of day. Light dreams of darkness. But the ignorant sun will chase away the darkness and burn the shadows... eventually burning itself!
  • The shade of the tree with the flowers that bloom at night is where the residents of darkness rest. The people of daytime are not allowed!
  • The delicious left brain is getting older and drifting to a faraway island.
  • I, who stand before you, am the protector of your dreams. I wonder what kind of punishment will befall the ignorant commoner who tries to enter this sacred dream?

OtherEdit

  • Doctor Yasushi Tsumura: Breaking news! The widow who tells fortunes in the shade of roof tiles! The response is sunny!
    Doctor Nobue Kakimoto: The sign of good fortune! The ceiling fan brings a message releasing epithets!
    Doctor Yasushi Tsumura: The maiden who sleeps under the veranda has a pulse!
    Doctor Nobue Kakimoto: This is the way out! The secret of this view is deep within the 10 year loan department!
  • Doctor Yasushi Tsumura: The high pressure holds the grab bag and looks a lot like milk.
    Doctor Nobue Kakimoto: The dense forest turns into a shopping district. The 24-bit eggplant will be analyzed.
  • Weather Lady: Today's weather is dreamy and will clear up after a sunny, sunny, sunny, sunny day!
  • Man: The dream I had yesterday and today.
    Men: The happy and mundane world will vent their anger.
    Women: The dreams will grow and grow. Let's grow the tree that blooms money.
    Schoolgirls: It's most valuable while it's still a bud.
    Phone men: That's right, so we shall preserve the memory forever.
    Parading people: If there is no flower, there will be no fruit.
    TV men: If there's nothing, then I won't do anything.
    Politician: If you're unhappy, please put a vote in this eyeball.
    Short man #1: Who would give up this throne?
    Short man #2: I am the emperor, chosen by the lord himself!
    Short men: I didn't choose you! I didn't choose you!
    Parade: God and Buddha will change religions. The happy and mundane world will vent their anger.

EnglishEdit

Doctor Atsuko "Paprika" ChibaEdit

  • (first line in the film) And now, boys and girls, it's show time!
  • (to Tokita) You guys really are alike. You and your bud Himuro. You were so selfishly wrapped up in what you want to do that you ignore what needs to be done. You never coded the DC Mini. That was just irresponsible. It cost lives. Don't you get it? Of course not. Not much gets through all that protective fat, now does it? Here's what does: "What a scientist"! "He's so amazing"! It's like a really bad joke. What good is a scientist to mankind if he doesn't care about people? Hmm? If you want to be the king of geeks with your bloated ego, then just keep on doing only what pleases you. Go ahead. Indulge in your freakish masturbation, because that's what you're good at!
  • (to Osanai) The only man I see is one with a big Oedipus complex: you believe The Chairman's your mother!

Doctor Toratarō ShimaEdit

  • I believe we are getting sidetracked. We need to find the DC Mini, not Paprika's bikini. This requires discipline.
  • Yes, sir! True satisfaction! That's what discipline brings! Even the five court ladies dancing to frog flutes and drums had it, and so did the whirlwind of recycled paper! Computer graphics playing in my head and I like it! I don't support Technicolor parfaits and those snobby little petite fours that sit there uneaten, and my position on that is common knowledge to everyone in Oceania. Now the time has come to return to the great blue sky, where confetti falls like stardust and everyone shaking around the shrine gates with the mailbox and the refrigerator leading the hip hop festival! Anyone who is concerned about expiration dates, step aside now! No one gets in the way of my glory train! They need to really analyze all of the livers of the triangle goose party! Ahhh! This whole festival was put together by twenty third-graders with lots of chutzpa and one panda! You see?! Now I am... truly grand! The ultimate one!
  • Oh, beautiful feisty little peasant girl I saved some time ago. What are you doing here, my dear? I didn't think anyone was home. Ahhh. Must've been on 7:30 when I passed by. As fate would have it, I just happened to see you disappear into that big cup of instant noodles.
  • Is it shaped like a square?

Doctor Kōsaku TokitaEdit

  • The ecstacy juice that blooms in synapse is Paprika-brand fat milk! And 5% is what you use. The safety net of the ocean is nonlinear, 'cause all the dreams of crabs are stuck in it! Let's go!
  • An overweight spirit needs no special diet! Go forward, superhero, don't stop!
  • You're the one I've been waiting for! Your flute sure is a sound for sore neurons!
  • A fragrant fat makes a really delicious first-class meal! (eats Atsuko) It's a bit bland. Needs a little spice. Perhaps a pinch of paprika?
  • Finding a really good spice is a major accomplishment. There's my Paprika!

Detective KonakawaEdit

  • (as the parade seeps into his dream) What is all this? Is this inside my head? Paprika!

Doctor Morio OsanaiEdit

  • Now come on. Don't force me to get rough with you, Paprika.

The ChairmanEdit

  • This is a place where life and all its joys are revered. Dreams belong to the dream world, not cold machinery that sucks the life from them. I will not allow arrogant scientific technology to intrude onto this holy ground.
  • Dreams are destroyed by technological tampering. Someone needs to be accountable. Science goes too far whenever gets one so.
  • In a world of inhumane reality, there is actually only one humane sanctuary left, Doctor, and that can be found in the comfort of a simple dream. That parade you saw is full of refugees who were unwillingly chased out of reality. I am merely protecting them, for I am the only true guardian of all dreams. My duty is to mete out justice to terrorists like you, Paprika.
  • (as a gigantic whale) That's right, my little fish. Just keep swimming away. There are no boundaries in dreams. No restrictions from one's own physical body. You have entered a new world where the spirit is free, and that freedom is limitless! Even for someone like me!

Doctor Kei HimuroEdit

  • The midday sun can eliminate the dark of night. It can happen either way. Night dreams of day, and light dreams of darkness, and the sun is a giant, ignorant mass of gas. It releases a huge amount of hot energy to track down the darkness and set ablaze every shadow... eventually burning up all of itself.
  • The residents of darkness rest in the shade of the trees where the night flowers bloom around the clock here... where daylight sun-scorched people aren't allowed!
  • Don't you see his brain is numbed out? It's taking him to a far-off island.
  • I can't stop the dream. I am the protector of the dream. All I say is dream on! You have entered my sacred dream, and as the holy dream protector, I get to punish you. I wonder what kind of punishment I should choose to inflict?

OtherEdit

  • Doctor Yasushi Tsumura: Breaking news! The fortuneteller sitting under the tile roof has made a future prediction! It'll be sunny and bright!
    Doctor Nobue Kakimoto: That means good luck! The ceiling fan released a message containing a bunch of crysanthemums!
    Doctor Yasushi Tsumura: The maiden who sleeps under the veranda has a pulse!
    Doctor Nobue Kakimoto: This is the way out! Everyone follow me! This way out! This way out!
  • Doctor Yasushi Tsumura: The high pressure holds the grab bag and looks a lot like milk. I think of apples!
    Doctor Nobue Kakimoto: The dense forest turns into a shopping center. The 24-bit eggplant must be analyzed.
  • Weather Lady: Today's weather has finally lifted, and all the weather ahead is sunny and dreamy!
  • Man: Yeah! Every day is just one big dream!
    Men:No more anger. Our world is happy and mundane.
    Women: As long as dreams will grow, let's get a little bud and grow a money tree, too!
    Schoolgirls: We wanna make sure it preserves the memory forever!
    Phone men: If there's no flower, there'll never be fruit!
    Parading people: If there's nothing, then there's nothing to do.
    TV men: You can live in your own TV!
    Politician: If you're unhappy, let the politicians know! Poke an eyeball and pop in a vote!
    Short man #1: I am the emperor, chosen by the one!
    Short man #2: Yeah, but who's one? My one? Your one? Which one?
    Short men: We didn't choose you! We didn't choose you!
    Parade: No more anger. Our world is happy and mundane.
