- Katsura Kotarou: "If you can't even get one animal to follow you freely, then how do you expect to be able to change the world?"
- Sakata Gintoki: "Just looking at it by itself isn't so bad but it's paired up with you, it's creepy. That is to say... You are creepy."
- Kastura Kotarou: "How can you hate something that doesn't have any philosophy or thoughts?"
- Shimura Shinpachi: "A simple existence of a pet is supposed to provide peace and tranquility. You're not supposed to demand anything in return."
