Oh, hey! Hi!
— Speaking to him while he's inside the clubroom.
I hope to see you again soon!
— Leaving the conversation while he's inside the clubroom.
We're the Cooking Club - we love food! Some of us are committed to eating healthy, while others are in pursuit of the world's most delicious treats. We have a broad range of interests - and appetites! Above all else, we love preparing food for others to enjoy. There's nothing more satisfying than watching people chow down on a meal that you just put together for them! We have enough ingredients here to prepare just about any meal you can imagine! And, if you join our club, you'll have unrestricted access to all of it!
— Asking Shoku for information about his club.
Would you like to join us? We'd be happy to have you!
— Asking to join the club.
That's great! Consider yourself an official member of our club. You're going to love it here!
— Joining the club.
Ah, that's perfectly fine. No hard feelings!
— Refusing to join the club.
Do you need to leave the club?
— Asking to leave.
I'm sorry to see you go, but...I understand. I wish you the best of luck in whatever you pursue!
— Leaving the club.
I'm glad to hear that!
— Refusing to leave.
We're going to prepare a meal between 5:00 and 5:30! I hope to see you there!

Hey! We're about to cook up something delicious. Want to help us out?

Great! Then let's get started!
— Participating in the club activity.
Okay! We'll wait for you! But, we can't wait longer than 5:30...okay?

Aw, did you want to help us prepare the meal? I'm sorry...we already finished. Next time, try to be here before 5:30.
— Trying to join the club activity after it ends.
Ah...when you quit the club, it...kinda left a bad taste in our mouths, so...oh! That wasn't supposed to be a cooking pun. I'm just'd be really awkward to let you back in the club. Sorry...
— Trying to rejoin the club after leaving.
Oh, shoot...there's this pesky little school rule that says a student can't be a member of two clubs at the same time. I guess that'd have to quit your current club to join us. I'm sorry!
— Trying to to join the club when Ayano is already a member of another club.
I'm sorry,'re not a good fit for our club. Please, don't take this personally.
— Speaking to him after a Cooking Club member saw you connected to a murder.
Ohhhhh man, it's...i-it's gonna be hard to figure out how to say see...we don't want any drama, of our members has a problem...with't let you join the club. I'm sorry.
— Trying to join after a member of the Cooking Club saw Ayano committing murder.
You...killed someone. Someone who had friends. Loved ones. Hopes. Dreams. Plans for the future. Memories of the past. And...ah...all of that was just...wiped out. How could you do that? need to leave.
