Quotes: Final Fantasy X

Group of Kids: Two, three... teach us how to blitz!
Tidus: Hey, I got a game to play!
Group of Kids: Then teach us after.
Tidus: Maybe tonight...um...well...
Fayth: You can't tonight.

Auron: It was a bad call. Your team lost because of you.
Tidus: You came to say THAT?
Auron: It's been...ten years. I thought you'd be crying.
Tidus: Who, me?
Fayth: You cried.

"Long time ago, there were a whole lot of cities in Spira. Big cities with machina-machines-to run 'em. People played all day and let the machina do the work. And then, well, take a look. Sin came, and destroyed the machina cities. And Zanarkand along with 'em. Yeah, that was about a thousand years ago, just like you said. If you asked me, Sin's our punishment for letting things get out of hand. What gets me, though...is we gotta suffer, 'cause of what some goofballs did way back when! 'Course, we must always repent for our sins! That's important! It's just that, it's hard to keep at it sometimes, you know?"

Tidus: So you want to win the next tournament — go out with a bang. So, what's our goal?
Wakka: I don't care how we do. Long as we play our best. If we give it our all, I can walk away happy.
Tidus: No, no, no, no, no. If I say, 'What's our goal?' you say, 'Victory!' When you play in a blitzball tournament, you play to win!

"Nope, we got a new goal now! Our new goal...is victory! To win every match, defeat every opposing team! To bring the Crystal Cup back to our island! That's all we need to do to win! Easy, ya?"

"This is the only time! The players fight with all their strength: the fans cheer for their favorite team. They forget pain, suffering... Only the game matters! That's why blitz has been around for so long. Least that's what I think."
Wakka on blitzball as an escape from Sin

"No promises there, big guy. Hey, but what if she, like, comes on to me?"
Tidus channeling his inner Zidane.

Yuna: You know that team?
Tidus: Putting people down... They're as bad as my old man!
Yuna: But, Sir Jecht was a kind and gentle man!
Tidus: Well, not my Jecht. (narrating) Even ten years after he left...just thinking about my old man got me angry. But maybe that was just my way of keeping him... Nah.

Tidus: A large fiend... Let's go get him!
Auron: Why?
Auron: "It's the right thing to do"? (chuckles)
Tidus: What'd I say now?
Auron: Jecht said that a lot, too. And every time he said it, it meant trouble for Braska and me.

"He called it the 'Sublimely Magnificent Jecht Shot Mark III'."
Yuna quoting Jecht

Wakka: Whoa! What's that called?
Tidus: Doesn't have a name. Anyone can do it if they try.
Tidus talking about said Jecht Shot.

Yuna: I wish I could live in a place like this. Peaceful... Living with a smile on my face every day.
Tidus: You can, once you beat Sin, right?
Yuna: But then a new Sin will be born anyway.
Tidus: Well then, you can just beat it again.
Yuna: I wish I could.
Tidus: Hey, you can! Trust me! You are the best summoner out there! Yuna, why does Sin always come back?
Yuna: Sin is our punishment for our vanity. And it will not go away until we've atoned.
Tidus: How do we do that? What did we do that was so bad in the first place? Was it using lots of machina or something? Oh... Wait, was that such a bad thing, really?
Yuna: It's funny... Ever since I was young, I never questioned it. But now that you ask me if it is that bad or not...I don't know. There are so many things I don't know.
Tidus: Well then, we're the same! (decrepit voice) Such thinking is very unbecoming of a summoner! (as himself) Sound like Mika?
Yuna: (giggling) That's not very nice, you know!

"I've... learned how to smile... Even when I'm feeling sad."

"So he killed all those people just for a chance to see me?!"
Tidus in reference to Sin's arrival at Mushroom Rock

"A summoner with bed hair! What's the world comin' to?"

"Those sand-blasted grease monkeys!"
Wakka in reference to the Al Bhed.

Wakka: But you Al Bhed use the forbidden machina! You know what that means? Sin was born because people used machina!
Rikku: You got proof? Show me proof!
Wakka: It's in Yevon's teachings! (scoffs) Not that you'd know!
Rikku: That's not good enough! Yevon says this, Yevon says that! Can't you think for yourself?!
Wakka: Well then, you tell me! Where did Sin come from, huh?
Rikku: I...I don't know!

"Boom! Like happy festival fireworks, ya?"
Wakka attempting to cheer Rikku up after Home is destroyed

Yuna: The people and the friends that we have lost, or the dreams that have faded... Never forget them.

"Guard your emotions first, then guard your summoner."
Auron Calming down Barthello after he loses Dona in Macalania Woods

"The red carpet has teeth."
Auron before the battle with Evrae

Yuna: (following the Seymour battle on Mt. Gagazet) He will become Sin... with my help? With my help, Sir Jecht will be free once again.
Auron: Lies. Forget them.
Yuna: You know something! Tell me!
Tidus: Sin's... my old man.
Wakka: You hit your head?
Tidus: My old man's Spira's suffering.
Yuna: Even knowing... that Sin is your father... you know... I must...
Tidus: Yeah... Let's go get him!
—The rest of the party learns the truth about Jecht.

"Hah! 'Legendary guardian'? I was just a boy. A boy about your age actually. I wanted to change the world too, but I changed nothing. That is my story."
Auron to Wakka and Tidus

Auron: Now! This is it! Now is the time to choose! Die, and be free of pain, or live, and fight your sorrow! Now is the time to shape your stories. Your fate is in your hands!
Kimahri: Yuna needs Kimahri; Kimahri protect Yuna.
Rikku: Well I'm fighting.
Wakka: I can't believe we're gonna fight Lady Yunalesca. Gimme a break.
Lulu: You can always run.
Wakka: Hah! I'd never forgive myself-no way. Not if I ran away now. Even in death, ya!
Lulu: *scoff* My thoughts exactly.
Tidus: Yuna! This is our story. Now let's see this thing through together.

Tidus: Lulu! How could you? How could you? Isn't she like a sister to you? I thought you were family! Why don't you do something, Wakka?
Lulu: Don't you think we tried to stop her? She follows... her heart.
Wakka: Yuna, she knew what she was doing when she chose to become a summoner. To face Sin, ya? Yuna knew!
Rikku: But, Wakka, that's just totally wrong! Summoners shouldn't have to sacrifice themselves... just so the rest of Spira can be happy, right?
Isaaru: But that is our choice... Dona: We all live in fear of Sin. You know that. A world without Sin... That is the dream of all Yevon's children. And we will use that power even if it means our lives!
Tidus: And I've been telling Yuna... Let's go to Zanarkand together! Let's beat Sin! I told her all the things we could... we could... And all along, the whole time, I didn't know anything! But Yuna, she'd... just smile.
Tidus learns the truth about what summoners do.

"I know it sounds selfish... but this is my story!"
Tidus's last words before the final battle.

"Yuna, I have to go... I'm sorry I couldn't show you Zanarkand... Goodbye!"
Tidus's last words to Yuna

Yuna: I'll continue. I must. If I give up now... I could do anything I wanted to, and yet... Even if I was with you, I could never forget.
—Yuna to Tidus, following the "Suteki da Ne" sequence
