Ghost in the Shell - Scene 14: Reincarnation

[14 Reincarnation]

(A room comes into view. We slowly zoom in to a mirror showing a girl sitting in a chair.)

(Batou:) You're awake.

Status report, please. And maybe an explanation about this body.

I was in a hurry. It was all I could get on the black market. Not my taste, really. Section 9 arrived with help right after it happened. They took two cyborg bodies and a slightly beat-up Batou back home. That was about 20 hours ago. For diplomatic reasons, the whole case has been covered up. Section 9 reported it as a terrorist attack. In return, the Foreign Minister has resigned. Nakamura's being questioned. The whole thing ends in a draw. Only the whereabouts of the Major's brain shell remains a mystery. Okay with you?

I like the decorating. This your safe house?

My very own. You're the first person I ever brought here. If you want to... You can stay as long as you like.

Thanks, but I'd better go.

Hey. What did you and he talk about? Is he still there, inside of you?

Batou, do you remember the voice we heard on the boat that night? Before those words we heard come these ones: "When I was a child, I spake as a child. I understood as a child, I thought as a child. But when I became a man, I put away childish things." Here before you is neither the program called the Puppet Master nor the woman that was called the Major.

You'll find a car key in the left pocket of that dress. Take one you like. The code on it is...

...2501? Let's make that our password, for when we meet again.

(Kusanagi is outside Batou's.)

And where shall I go now? The net is vast and limitless.
