After you go after Emi at her house and get thrown out, but Misha gives you advice and you go to apologize to Emi at the track.
That scene. was. perfect.
My apologies for the long transcript I'm about to type, I'd like those that haven't played it to know the atmosphere.
*She seems irritated by my being still there that I almost lost my nerve, but I've lost my nerve enough.*
Hisao: "I need to explain myself. Why I can't let the matter rest."
*Emi folds her arms and bounces one blade on the ground in an approximation of tapping her foot impatiently. Angry as she is, and nervous as I am, she still looks beautiful.*
Emi: "Okay Hisao, explain."
Hisao: "The thing is, I know that you're really sensitive about the accident and your dad."
*I can see Emi's face twitch at the mention of the two things that have been steadily driving us apart, or at least made me feel like we're being driven apart.*
Hisao: "But that's why I want to know about them, I think. Because I see how much they hurt you, and I want to be there to comfort you. It makes me miserable, seeing you sleepless and depressed - and don't pretend you aren't, because I know, okay? I just remember that night when you fell asleep with me and had that nightmare, and that you were happy to have me there when you woke up. I want to be able to be there for you like that whenever you need me to be."
*The stern face cracks, slightly. Emi interrupts before I can continue further.*
Emi: "Just...stop right there. We can't see each other anymore, okay?"
*She's rushing now, looking at everywhere but at me. I'm surprised she doesn't bolt, she knows I can't catch her...*
Emi: "We're not...we're not right for each other."
Hisao: "That's not true, and you know it."
Emi: "No it's true. You're too-"
Hisao: "I know. I know that I've been pushy about knowing your past. If you can't tell me yet, at least let me be there even if I don't know the reason. It's okay, I promise. I won't ask why you need comfort, I'll just give it freely."
*Emi 's shaking her head, and tears seem to be threatening the corners of her eyes.*
Emi: "Stop saying that!"
Hisao: "Why, because you're afraid you'll take me up on it?"
Emi: "I'm not afraid!"
*I can't keep the chiding tone from my voice as I respond.*
Hisao: "Yes, you are. You told me yourself, remember? That's okay, really it is. However, it seems to me that someone who'd managed to come out of that wreck and still be as energetic and cheerful as you are would be determined enough to face that fear."
Whew, lots of effort to establish the scene. Here comes my favorite quotes
Emi: "Determination? What do you know about determination?"
Hisao: "I know that there's a girl so determined to take care of a total stranger that she'd steal his food at a festival. I know that there's a girl so determined to help me with my own problems that she'd draw up a complete dietary and exercise plan, and that she'd not only draw up the plans, but she'd follow them with me, even when she couldn't run. Determined enough to keep me at arm's length that she'd put herself through emotional pain if she thought it was the right thing to do."
Hisao: "Although, there's one thing that this determined girl didn't quite plan for, which was that I might feel the same kind of determination to keep her from being hurt. I fell in love with you, and I refuse to let that be thrown away because you're afraid of losing me."
Totally loved how he just took what happened between Emi and him and used it back, going straight through her emotional defences. This scene, as well as those quotes, are my favorite of KS
