Tsukushi: "Are you stupid?! Go after her! If you love her, you should chase after her anywhere! Are you satisfied with just watching her in the shadows? And you call yourself a man?"
Rui: "I'm going too."
— Rui decides to follow Shizuka to France.
"Tears!! Goodbye to the person I like"(涙!!サヨナラ大好きなヒト,(涙!!サヨナラ大好きなヒトNamida!! Sayonara daisukina hito) is the third episode of the Japanese drama, Hana Yori Dango. It first aired on November 4, 2005 on TBS in Japan.
The phrase "senzai ichiguu" (せんざいいちぐう,"senzai ichiguu" lit. "golden opportunity") is used by Chieko Makino, while they are helping Susumu study. Alternatively, the phrase can mean "chance of a lifetime" or "a once in a lifetime chance".
Tsubaki also uses the phrase "isogaba maware" (急がば 回れ,"isogaba maware" lit. "more haste, less speed"). Tsukasa later takes the quote literally by going around the table, while asking Tsukushi out. The saying can also mean "slow and steady wins the race" in English.
Tsukasa uses the wrong kanji spelling Kazu (数,Kazu), instead of Rui (類,Rui).
The running gag of Okami-san's former lovers continues with "Tiger Mask", a masked pro-wrestler. The name "Tiger Mask" originates from the 1968 manga, Tiger Mask. Later Yuki and Tsukushi win an action figure of "Tiger Mask", whose mask hides a soft, caring face.
