Voice: I believe you've heard of Lain.
Voice: "Lain in the wired".
Title: PSYCHE Layer:03
Police: Are your parents out? I called your house, but nobody answered.
Lain: I didn't lie.
Police: Well, I don't think you're lying.
Police: I'm sure you are Iwakura Lain, and your address and telephone number are right. I already confirmed them.
Police: Although it has nothing to do with you, you shouldn't be so quiet.
Police: It's late. I'll escort you home.
Police: But you have to talk properly next time.
Alice: Lain, sorry. It's our fault. Are you all right?
Alice: Are you all right, Lain?
Alice's mother: Alice! Let's go back.
Alice: Sorry...sorry, Lain. Let's talk tomorrow. Sorry.
Police: Now, you go home too.
Police: Do you have your key?
Navi: There are no messages for Lain.
Lain: Good night, Navi.
Navi: Good night, Lain.
Mother: You overslept and are late for school.
Mother: Don't you think that it's shameful as a junior high school student?
Lain: Mom, last night...
Voice: Lain... Lain... Lain...
Voice: I'm here. Can you hear me?
Voice: You are not alone.
Girls: Wow! Great!
Girls: Did he look good?
Girls: His face wasn't shown on TV.
Girls: Did you see his face?
Girls: Actually you were there, weren't you?
Juri: Yes, but...
Reika: You were screaming. You saw his face, didn't you?
Juri: Yes, but... just a little.
Reika: You were too scared to see.
Juri: Lain, Were you scolded yesterday?
Reika: It wasn't our fault.
Girls: Yes, Alice was the closest to the criminal.
Girls: Did his bload splatter everywhere?
Juri: Talk to them.
Girls: Come on, Alice...
Commentary: If you use Psyche as a processor, you're missing the point.
Commentary: As multi-purpose information terminals, Navis have become popular even among schoolchildren.
Commentary: But, the activity in the wired is limited by the performance of Navis even now.
Commentary: Psyche can increase any of a Navi's functions.
Chisa: I wasn't needed in the real world.
Chisa: It didn't make a difference whether I was there or not.
Chisa: When I realized that, I wasn't afraid to abandon the flesh.
Voice: Who is Lain?
Voice: Who is Lain? Who is Lain? ...
Alice: It's strange. I'm sure we saw someone dying right in front of us last night.
Alice: But we felt as if we were watching a movie.
Reika: I know we were right there, but I felt like it wasn't real.
Juri: Alice, don't take it so seriously.
Alice: No. I'm saying it's strange because we can't take it seriously.
Alice: Lain? Is that a love letter?
Lain: No... Perhaps.
Reika: Show me, show me.
Alice: Stop it.
Reika: Hmm... It's a brown envelope.
Juri: What does it say?
Juri: ...What's this?
Reika: This is boring!
Woman's Voice: No, someone peeped at my voicemail! I can't believe it!
Man's Voice: There is no relevant information in the resume which we received.
Man's Voice: We are examining it for your company...
Woman's Voice: I love kissing. It makes me happy by itself.
Boy's Voice: After the kid made a silly incident with Accela, the supplier was scared, and now we can hardly get them.
Man's Voice: Psyche seemed to be made in Taiwan.
Man's Voice: And, there's a rumor that Psyche was designed by a group named "Knights". But I'm not sure "Knights" really exists.
Girl's Voice: Did you feel good while dying?
Boy's Voice: Yes. I felt like hugging myself for joy.
Alice's Voice: No! There's someone in my room! A child-sized, wrinkled person is looking at me. ...Help me!
Girl's Voice: I have a photograph of you with your secret lover.
Girl's Voice: I only want to trade. If you won't buy this, I'll upload this into the server in your company...
Girl's Voice: Lain, why don't you come here?
Navi: Lain has mail.
Father: Lain, have you gotten used to your new Navi?
Lain: Do you know about this?
Lain: But... Dad... I though you would know.
Father: I said no.
Boy: Why don't you...?
Girl: No. No. I can't.
Boy: I love you. Please...
JJ: Why haven't you come here in a while?
JJ: Huh? You look too girlish today.
JJ: I want to have another "rave". Organize it again, please.
Taro: What, are you trying to look good?
Masayuki: So are you!
Lain: Do you know about this?
Taro: Isn't it "Psyche"?
Myu-Myu: I've never seen this.
Masayuki: Where did you buy it?
Lain: Do you know about this?
Masayuki: What are you saying? With this, you can access the Wired without using devices.
Lain: How should I use this?
Myu-Myu: Idiot! You don't even know something like that.
Masayuki: Please, sell it to me, sell it to me!
Taro: Idiot! You can't buy this anywhere.
Masayuki: What model is your Navi?
Lain: I'm not sure.
Lain: But, it should be the newest model made by Tachibana.
Kids: That's great!
Taro: Did you try opening it up?
Taro: Are you grade 2 of junior high, or grade 3?
Masayuki: Then, I assume you've studied "Information Basics".
Masayuki: The basic layout of the Navi is drawn in the textbook.
Masayuki: Connect this to the back of the board at the main processor.
Masayuki: It will intercept the original information to the processor and it will work automatically.
Masayuki: It's easier than building a plastic model.
Masayuki: Just be careful of the static electricity.
Lain: Thank you.
Taro: Wait, information isn't for free both on the Wired and in the real world.
Masayuki: How much? How much?
Taro: Are you Lain?
Taro: I saw you in the wired once.
Taro: But you looked quite different.
Taro: It's common to have a different personality in the Wired.
Taro: But yours are quite opposite.
Taro: You were here when the silly incident happened here, weren't you?
Taro: What are you up to?
Lain: What can I do?
Taro: Go on a date with me.
Taro: But not the way you are now, I want the wild Lain.
Taro: N...No. I was joking.
Taro: When you like, please...
Taro: That's all. Let's go!
Mika: Who are you? Do you have any business in my home?
ManInBlack1: You didn't meet us.
Mika: What? I'll call the police!
MIB2: Because we are not here now.
Mika: No... What?
Mika: Mom, call the police if they come again.
Mika: Mom, are you listening?
Mika: ...What are you doing, Lain?
Mika: ...What are you doing, dressed like that?
Lain: I've heard that I have to avoid static electricity.
Lain: It's better to remove your clothes.
Mika: Are you stupid?
Lain: Ah... Welcome home, sister!
