The Bad Sleep Well (1960)
Koichi Nishi: They starved you and my father with scraps from their table, killed you as scapegoats, and still you can't hate them.
Construction Company President Hatano: A man with a full stomach doesn't bother with snacks.
Tatsuo Iwabuchi: [to Nishi about his father who is cooking barbeque wearing an apron] He hardly looks the part of a bad guy.
Contract Officer Shirai: I met the young lady twice while plannung the wedding. She's a genuinely sweet person. When I think of her agony, I wish a peaceful resolution were possible.
Itakura: Unfortunately there just isn't any way. That man's evil! If we hesitate, we're finished.
Administrative Officer Moriyama: [imprisoned inside a locked room] Cut the crap! You've starved me for two whole days!
Koichi Nishi: Would you like to eat?
Administrative Officer Moriyama: Of course!
Koichi Nishi: We haven't got much to offer. You like ham and eggs on toast?
Administrative Officer Moriyama: Anything!
Koichi Nishi: [opening up the locked door and showing him the pan of food] Ham and eggs on toast will run you 15 million.
Administrative Officer Moriyama: 15 million?
Koichi Nishi: Surely you're not shocked! 'Always get a kickback!' That's your policy, isn't it?
[Nishi drives Wada to the funeral service- his own. Nishi wipes the rain from the windscreen so Wada can look. Wada peers over the dashboard. It is really a magnificent funeral, with wreaths, candles, a picture of him mounted on the top of a wonderful display, and co-workers bowing solemnly. Wada is aghast to find his wife and daughter at the funeral]
Assistant-to-the-Chief Wada: Why... why are you doing this to me? This is sheer torment! I'd rather be dead!
[He begins to sob]
Assistant-to-the-Chief Wada: Please, let me die. I have to die! Wasting this fine funeral-!
Koichi Nishi: Calm down, now. There's something I want you to hear. You've been to Noir, right? The bar run by Moriyama's mistress?
[He takes out a large tape recorder, disguised as a valise]
Koichi Nishi: This is Moriyama and Shirai talking there last night.
Contract Officer Shirai: [over the tape recorder] What, you came to this kind of place? And so soon after getting married?
Koichi Nishi: [over tape recorder] You've caught me red handed. I'm ready for a dance.
Administrative Officer Moriyama: [over tape recorder] Now, now. No need to rush off.
[Moriyama and Shirai laugh]
Koichi Nishi: [to Wada] That's when I placed a briefcase with this tape recorder inside it under their table.
[He shuts the tape off]
Koichi Nishi: I'll play their conversation for you after they arrive at the funeral.
[He starts whistling a tune]
