(Cloud walks onto the beach.)

Aerith
         "Oh! Cloud!!"

Tifa
         "Look, look at that!"

(The camera pans over to show Hojo reclining in a beach chair, surrounded by beautiful women.)

Cloud
         "Hm...?"

<CHOICE>
         Who, Hojo...?
         That girl in the bikini......?

***Cloud
         Who, Hojo?
 
Cloud
         "Is that man over there, Hojo?"

Tifa
         "Go over and talk to him."

***Cloud
         That girl in the bikini......?

Cloud
         "Not a bad view...."

Tifa
         "What're you looking at?"
         "That man over there. That's Hojo from Shinra. Get outta here. Go talk to him!"
<//>

(He goes over to him)

         "God!! What do you want?"

<CHOICE>
         I want to talk with that man
         Is that Hojo?

***Cloud
         I want to talk with that man

         "(Hey, who do you think you are?)"
         "Professor Hojo. That scary man says he wants to talk with you."

***Cloud
         Is that Hojo?

         "(What's his problem?)"
         "Yes, that's right. It's the Professor!"
         "Professor... someone's here to see you, sir."
<//>

Hojo
         "I'm busy right now."

         ".....But. Too bad."

Hojo
         "Oh, I remember you all now."
         "Yes, yes. I remember now."

(Hojo sits up)

Hojo
         "It's been a long time, Cloud."

Cloud
         "Hojo....."

Hojo
         "Sometimes you just gotta do something like this."

Cloud
         "....What are you doing?"

Hojo
         "It should be obvious. I'm getting a tan."

Cloud
         "Answer me!"

Hojo
         "Hmm! I believe we're both after the same goal."

Cloud
         "You mean Sephiroth?"

Hojo
         "Did you see him?"
         "I see..... Ha! Ha!"

(He stands up)

Cloud
         "What is it?"

Hojo
         "Nothing. I just remembered a certain hypothesis......."
         "Haven't you ever had the feeling something is calling you?"
         "Or that you had to visit some place?......"

Cloud
         "I'll go anywhere Sephiroth is at!"
         "To beat him and put an end to all this!"

Hojo
         "I see...... This could be interesting."
         "Were you in SOLDIER? ....Heh heh heh! Would you like to be my guinea pig?"

(Cloud draws his sword)

Hojo
         "Oh, now what? Are you going to draw your sword?"

Tifa
         "Stop, Cloud! I know how you feel, but you mustn't."

(He puts it away)

Hojo
         "Ha! Ha! Ha!...."

(He gets off his beach chair and looks at Aerith)

Hojo
         "Say, aren't you the 'Ancient?'"

Aerith
         "I'm Aerith. The least you can do is remember my name."
         "I want you to tell me something, Professor Hojo....."
         "I know I'm an Ancient. My mother told me."

Hojo
         "Your mother? Oh, you mean Ifalna. How is she?"

Aerith
         "You didn't know? She died."

(He looks away)

Hojo
         "......I see."

Aerith
         "Professor Hojo...."
         "Is Jenova an Ancient? Is Sephiroth an Ancient? Do we all have the same blood?"

Hojo
         "......mumble....mumble..... head west...."

Aerith
         "He's mumbling slowly.... That must mean he's hiding something!"

(Hojo gets back on his beach chair)

Hojo
         "................."

Tifa
         "Hey! Answer us!!"

(He is silent)

Cloud
         ".......It's no use. It's no go."
 

         "He never takes off his lab coat even in thie heat. I guess that's the mark of an intellectual."

         "I'd be happy to be a guinea pig, if it's for Professor Hojo!"

         "Yipes! Help!!"
         "....breath.... breath...! Kind of takes your breath away, don't it!?"
