Hunt Stevenson: You're a real millie, you know that?
Kazihiro: I'm no millie!

Hunt Stevenson: Is it just me or do you hate the way your shorts feel when they're wet?
Kazihiro: Actually I kind of like it.

Kazihiro: [Hunt has been offered a job by his Japanese bosses] Can we count on you?

Kazihiro: Last night I told off my boss.

Mr. Sakamoto: Everything is all right here?

Hunt Stevenson: [Lights up cigar and leans his seat back] Uh-huh?
Kazihiro: How do you think things are going at the factory?
Hunt Stevenson: Honestly, Kaz?
Kazihiro: Yes, please.
Hunt Stevenson: Not too well.
[sits upright]
Hunt Stevenson: Uh, see, you're Stateside now, fellas and to tell you the truth, you're still acting like a bunch of Yokohama mobs. No offense.
Kazihiro: None taken.
Hunt Stevenson: Can I... can I be frank, for a second? I've heard a lot of talk about, uh, how good the Japanese businessmen are.
[leans back and puts cigar in mouth]
Hunt Stevenson: Quite frankly, I'm sorry. I don't get it. I don't see it. I'm not impressed.
Kazihiro: You're fired.
Hunt Stevenson: What?
[Hunt falls off chair]
Hunt Stevenson: You can't fire me.
Kazihiro: [Gets up and pours himself some whiskey] You'll go back on the line with the others.
Hunt Stevenson: Whoa! Wait a minute! Wait a minute! Explain this to me. Why?
Kazihiro: I do not understand American workers. They come five minutes late, leave two minutes early. They stay home when they are sick. They put themselves above company. You seem to feel the same way as they do.
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.
Kazihiro: Ten percent?
Hunt Stevenson: Yeah.
Kazihiro: In Japan, production in same sized factory is 40% higher.
Saito: With superior quality.
Hunt Stevenson: That's impossible. How can you guys work that fast?
Kazihiro: Japanese worker is very loyal to company. Is very proud when company does well. Is ashamed when it does poorly.
Saito: Like now.

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?
Hunt Stevenson: [pauses] Well, I'll tell you something. There's one guy who can get them to go for it, and you're looking at him.
Kazihiro: You can change workers' attitude?
Hunt Stevenson: If I can't, nobody can't.
Audrey: Nobody can.
Hunt Stevenson: Hey, would you shut up?
[Audrey leaves in disgust]
Hunt Stevenson: God... damn.
[Hunt briefly pauses]
Hunt Stevenson: Okay, you guys have a problem, right? I'm the answer man. I can work this out and make everybody happy. I always have. Come on, you gotta give me a shot here.
[Long pause by the Japanese executives]
Kazihiro: All right. We make no more changes for now.
Hunt Stevenson: There you go. Huh-huh, yeah.
[Hunt and Kaz toast each other]
