Tom Cruise
Tom Cruise (Nathan Algren)
[speaking with the Silent Samurai, after being beaten to the ground by Uijo] I just realized, I've been remiss. Forgive me, I forgot to thank you for looking out for me yesterday. That is your job, correct? Protecting me. Well done 'Bob.' You don't mind if I call you Bob, do you? I knew a Bob once; God, he was ugly as a mule. Are you a ladies man, Bob?
[kneeling in front of Emperor] If you believe me to be your enemy, command me, and I will gladly take my life.
[to the Silent Samurai] I know why you don't talk. You're angry. You're angry because they make you wear a dress.

Ken Watanabe
Ken Watanabe (Katsumoto)
[giving Algren his staff before leaving the samurai village] When I took these from you, you were my enemy...
last words, about cherry blossoms] Perfect. They... are all... perfect...
The perfect blossom is a rare thing. You could spend your life looking for one, and it would not be a wasted life.

Masato Harada
Masato Harada (Omura)
If Katsumoto attracts other samurai to his cause, we will have 10 years of rebellion. This is something I will not allow. Either I will stop him at the council today or you will lead my army against him. And with these new weapons, you will crush him.
We must resist the Western powers by becoming powerful ourselves. Our army and our economy must be strong.
Bring out the new gun!.. Quickly!.. Quickly!.. Fire!.. Idiots, keep on firing! Kill Katsumoto and kill the American!
