"I had a dream that you died. I was so scared. I thought you died. After what I said, I was sure you wouldn't come. But you came anyway, like a fool. You were punched and kicked by those thugs. I was sure you were dead."
Tsukushi admits her scared feelings to Tsukasa

"Someday We'll Laugh..." (いつか笑える日 (いつかわらえるひ) Itsuka Waraeru Hi) is the thirty-third episode of the Boys Over Flowers anime adaptation by Toei Animation. The episode first aired on April 27, 1997 in Japan. It was followed by the thirty-fourth episode, "The Woman in My Life!," on May 4.

Tsukushi Makino wakes up in the hospital, where she admits to Tsukasa Domyoji how scared she was of him dying. Junpei Oribe comes to apologize to her. Tsukushi does not accept it since she it not yet ready to forgive him.


On top of a building, Tsukasa Domyoji stands precariously at the very edge. Tsukushi Makino appears out of thin air and warns Tsukasa to stay away from the edge. Turning around, he says "You hate me, don't you?" She shakes her head, but Tsukasa goes on "As far as I'm concerned, either you love me or you hate me." He then steps off the ledge and falls. Tsukushi runs up to the ledge, shouting "Don't go!" She wakes up in a sweat and breathing hard. Her mother says her name a few times before Tsukushi is able to calm down a little. Then, her mother reveals that she and Tsukasa were brought into the hospital earlier. Tsukushi remembers her dream and immediately runs out of the room without a second thought.

Tsukushi runs up to the nearest nurse station, before noticing Rui Hanazawa whom she asks "How's Domyoji?" He does not answer her question, instead telling her where Tsukasa's room is located. She hurries inside and sees Tsukasa with a cloth covering his face. Sojiro Nishikado tells her "You're too late," while Akira Mimasaka appears to be crying near the window. Tsukushi shouts "You can't die!" Her words then turn less than flattering, such as "You may have been a jerk with a bad attitude..." Tsukasa says "Is that any way to talk about your savior?" The guys all laugh hysterically at their trick. Angry, Tsukushi starts to shake Tsukasa. Meanwhile, Rui waits outside staying away from the fight.

Sojiro and Akira leave the room after Tsukasa gives them a detailed list of his attackers and how many punches and kicks they each gave him. Sojiro says "I thought he'd mature some, but he's as vengeful as ever." Rui notices at the bottom Tsukasa wrote "The model's mine." Back in the room, Tsukushi is turned away from Tsukasa who attempts to grab her attention. He grows irritated by her frosty attitude, saying "No words of comfort for an injured man?" Tsukushi starts crying again, and reveals her dream about him dying and how scared it made her. Seeing a new side of Tsukushi, Tsukasa thinks to himself "She's adorable." He apologizes for the joke and comforts her. Tsukushi is finally able to smile.

Tsukasa tenses up as soon as Junpei Oribe walks into the room. Upon seeing him, Tsukushi stands protectively in front of Tsukasa. Tsukasa tells her to move and then asks Junpei "What do you want?" Junpei laughs aloud when Tsukasa suggests he came to apologize. He says "I don't think I did anything wrong." Junpei then tells him about his brother, whom Tsukasa hurt when he was in middle school. Tsukasa asks "What's he up to now?" and Junpei reveals that his brother is now attending school in Kobe. He appears relieved to learn that he is alive. Junpei admits that seeing Tsukasa protect Tsukushi and vice versa changed how saw him. He says "I knew then that you weren't the same person anymore."

Junpei turns to Tsukushi and apologizes to her while bowing. She tells him "It's too late for apologies. Get out of here." After Junpei leaves, Tsukushi thinks "I won't forgive you yet. Maybe someday..." At the same time, Sakurako Sanjo and Kazuya Aoike make their way upstairs. They run into Junpei, whom Kazuya calls "evil incarnate" though Sakurako says "He's handsomer in person!" Outside, Junpei looks forlornly at the hospital. Later, the F4 show Tsukushi and Tsukasa photos of their attackers beaten up. Sojiro and Akira turn the subject to Tsukasa's devotion to Tsukushi. Feeling pressured, Tsukushi is uncomfortable and compares him to a dog in order to leave. Tsukasa passes out from shock.
