- "The water is alive. Once you dive in, it will immediately bare its fangs and attack. But, there's nothing to fear. Don't resist the water. Thrust your fingers into the surface and carve an opening. Then you slide your body through that opening. Moving your arms, your head, your chest..." (”水は生きている。ひとたび飛びこめば、たちまち牙をむき襲いかかってくる。だけど恐れることはない。水に抗わず、水面に指先を突き立て切れ目を作り出す。その切れ目に身体を滑り込ませていく。腕を、頭を、胸を――” ”Mizu wa ikite iru. Hitotabi tobikomeba, tachimachi kiba wo muki osoikakatte kuru. Dakedo osoreru koto wa nai. Mizu ni aragawazu, minamo ni yubisaki wo tsukitate kireme wo tsukuridasu. Sono kireme ni karada wo suberi komaseteiku. Ude wo, atama wo, mune wo――”)

We accept one another."(”水を感じる事、肌で目で心で、そして感じたものを疑わないこと。自分を信じること。水に抗うのではなく受け容れる。互いの存在を認め合う…！” ”Mizu wo kanjiru koto, hada de me de kokoro de, soshite kanjita mono wo utagawanai koto. Jibun wo shinjiru koto. Mizu ni aragau no de wa naku ukeireru. Tagai no sonzai wo mitome au…!”)
- "There's an old saying my late grandma taught me. When you're ten, they call you a prodigy. When you're fifteen, they call you a genius. Once you hit twenty, you're just an ordinary person. About three years until I'm ordinary. Man... I can't wait to be ordinary."(”死んだばあちゃんから聞いた古いことわざ：十で神童、十五で天才、二十歳過ぎればただの人。ただの人まで後三年ちょっと。はぁ...早くただの人になりたい。” ”Shinda bāchan kara kīta furui kotowaza: To de shindō, jūgo de tensai, hatachi yogireba tadanohito. Tada no hito made ato san'nen chotto. Ha~a... Hayaku tada no hito ni naritai.”)

- "Another three years until I become an ordinary person. I guess it couldn't hurt to wait a little longer..."(”ただの人まであと三年ちょっと。もう少し、今のままでいるのも悪くない、か…” ”Tada no hito made ato san'nen chotto. Mō sukoshi, ima no mama de iru no mo warukunai, ka…”)
- "I've seen this before. This sensation... I get it now. This is what I wanted. No need to rely on or work with other people. I just want to drift through the water alone in silence."

- (To Makoto) "Makoto. I appreciate you being here for me. Thanks."
- (To Nagisa, the night before the tournament) "It's all thanks to you. You're the one who came up with the idea of starting a swim club. I never thought I'd be swimming in a relay again. Thanks, Nagisa."
