Opening is the 1st Track on Saiyuki's Drama CD, Saiyuki Party.
[Sanzo]: You guys ready?
(a short silence)
[Goku]: …What was that, sleep talking?
[Hakkai]: So it would appear
[Gojyo]: Sheesh, what a carefree guy, our Sanzo-sama is. He makes us drive Jeep and then falls dead asleep, what’s with that?
[Hakkai]: I’m the one driving though.
[Gojyo]: Hey Monkey, you wake Sanzo up.
[Goku]: No way! And I’m not a monkey, stinky kappa!
[Gojyo]: What was that? Try saying that one more time.
[Goku]: Stinky kappa, pervy kappa, cockroach baron!
[Gojyo]: Haa? Cockroach baron?! What the hell is that? Doesn’t make sense, idiot.
[Goku]: Shut up! If I say you’re a cockroach then you’re a cockroach, stupid! Octopus*!
[Gojyo]: You little monkey!!
[Sanzo]: SHUT UP!!!
[Goku]: Oh, he woke up.
[Hakkai]: Good morning, Sanzo.
[Hakkai]: Ah, it’s deteriorating, isn’t it? Your hypertension.
[Gojyo]: Is it okay to chalk it up to low blood pressure?
(Sanzo searches for something)
[Goku]: Sanzo, what’s up?
[Sanzo]: It’s not here.
[Hakkai]: What isn’t here?
[Sanzo]: The Maten Scripture.
(Jeep skids to a stop)
[Goku and Hakkai]: What?
[Gojyo]: Hey, hey. You sure you’re not still sleeping?
[Sanzo]: Your face is still sleeping.
[Gojyo]: I don’t wanna be told that by the guy who doesn’t measure up.
(Bamboo clack marking joke)
[Hakkai]: Oh, I thought your shoulders looked tidier. I wondered if Sanzo too was one of the rumored “cool businessmen”.
[Sanzo]: Don’t think.
[Goku]: Hey, isn’t it bad if we don’t have the scripture?
[Sanzo]: It’s excessively bad.
(Sanzo lights a cigarette, takes a drag and blows the smoke out)
[Gojyo]: Hey! Is this a time to be smoking?
[Sanzo]: Shut up! I’m thinking!
[Goku]: What about?
[Sanzo]: Our movements yesterday.
[Hakkai]: Ah, I see. We might remember some clue to help us find it.
[Goku]: Uh, yesterday we ate breakfast, then ate takoyaki, then ate ice cream, then ate lunch, then defeated some youkai, then ate karaage chicken, then ate dinner, and then ate yakitori!!!
[Sanzo]: Your memory is too biased.
[Gojyo]: Anyway, doesn’t yakitori fit into dinner?
[Hakkai]: It’s certain you had it up until the yakitori store, yes? Gojyo spilled sauce on the scripture and Sanzo half-killed him, after all . . .
[Gojyo]: Man, I thought I was gonna die there.
[Goku]: Then, right after that we got in Jeep. . . There was no time to lose it!
[Hakkai]: You’re right . . .
[Goku]: So, where should we search?
[Goku, Gojyo, and Hakkai]: Hmmm. . .
[Sanzo]: (notices) Hey, Monkey. What’s that wrapped around your stomach?
[Gojyo]: It’s the scripture
[Goku]: Ah, I forgot!
[Hakkai]: It was cold for the first time in a long time last night.
[Sanzo]: That’s no reason to use it as a replacement for a hip wrap!!!
[Hakkai]: Ah, well, isn’t it good we found it?
[Goku]: Ah, he drooled.
[Sanzo]: Stop messing around, idiot monkey!! Hand it over!!!
(scuffling, Sanzo dusts the scripture off)
[Sanzo]: Damn it, don’t use it so crudely.
[Goku]: But there wasn’t anything else, I didn’t have a choice!
[Hakkai]: All right, next time Santa comes we’ll request a warm hip wrap.
[Goku]: It’s that way far away?
[Gojyo]: ‘ch, man. Shoulda known that was what happened. Aah, how long’re we gonna keep going on this trip?
[Hakkai]: For quite a while more, I should think. At any rate.
[Goku and Gojyo]: This sucks
[Hakkai]: Ahahahaha. All right.
(Jeeps engine revs)
[Hakkai]: Shall we head out soon?
[Goku]: I’m starving!
[Sanzo]: Let’s get out of here.
(Jeep drives off)
