Conan (in Kogoro's voice): YOU IDIOT! "Planning to keep the fire small"? "It got out of hand"? What makes you think those are valid excuses?! Shut the hell up! Did you even consider the fact that she may have been killed? What if the car broke down? A flat tire? A traffic jam? She easily could have died if those things were to happen! If you wanted her to notice you, why didn't you become someone worth being noticed? Why didn't you try getting her to notice you by doing something honorable?

Conan Edogawa (in Kogoro's voice): What value does your will have? I asked what price it carries. If money is enough, is your will for sale? A will that can be bought with money... What's the meaning of that? If your will can be bought with money, then it will vanish along with that money.
