Hunt Stevenson: Okay, excuse me, but explain something to me. When this was an American factory, production was up 10% higher than it is with you guys. Now explain that to me.

Hunt Stevenson: Yeah.
Kazihiro: In Japan, production in same sized factory is 40% higher.

[resorting to a book of quotes]
Secretary: He between a lock and a hard on.

Hunt Stevenson: Now on these last few we might need to cut a few corners. Little things, like... Engines.

Kazihiro: In Japan, when production lags, worker stays longer in factory.
Hunt Stevenson: Okay, overtime. We can talk about overtime. I understand it now.
Kazihiro: They do not do it for pay. They do it for company.
Hunt Stevenson: Yeah, but that's there, this is here.
Audrey: Gentlemen, this is an American factory. They're never gonna go for that.
Kazihiro: Is that how you feel, Hunt, that they'll never go for it?
