Here’s the translation from Anime News Network:
Bato: Even a blood-soaked battlefield is no place to die. You're heading to a new place to live for, right?
Motoko: At the very least, I plan to get a place that's appropriate for us.
Woman: Mobile armored riot police, was it?
Man: We never stop watching out for crime, so that we can stop incidents like this before they occur.
Bato: Go, Major!
Woman: Just so you know, we're a better fit for this than some fictional unit.
Togusa: You still alive?
Logicoma: If I know, I can't repair it.
Saito: The tune of murder is nostalgic.
Borma: I'll take that.
Bato: It's a remote automaton. It doesn't have a ghost!
Man: Kill the hostages.
Motoko: The virus of false memories, Fire Starter!
Text: Original creator: Masamune Shirow
Aramaki: We were supposed to stop this before it happened!
Voice: You have always been free. Always shaping the future. I envy you.
Motoko: Protect me.
Bato: It's not that I haven't lost anything. It's that I haven't tried to take back what I've lost.
Man: The major saw something bad on that ship. Something that made her decide to purge us.
Motoko: That is your limit, Kusanagi.
