He didn't either.

So, you're looking for employment, yes?

Angel, what am I going to do with you?

I could do you.

Even in front of these guys.

I think I'll do you.

A single blow, very clean.

A surgically sharp instrument.

A sword.

Yeah, a sword.

I have seen a lot of would-be beheadings.

It's not as easy as it looks.

Whoever did this was very good.

It was also completely redundant.

- How do you mean?

- Open this, please.

The eyes are still dilated.

It's very strange after death.

So I did a prelim.

There were enough methamphetamines

in her system to kill her.

- What kind?

- It's called ice. Big in Japan, but not here.

It makes rock look like decaf.

If it breaks wide, there'll be a plague

like you have never seen.

- Thanks, Russell.

- Anytime.

This is a weird part of town.

How come you don't know

a goddamn thing about your own culture?

My culture?

Listen, Champ. I was raised in the Valley.

My dad's a white guy who's a dentist.

I know about malls,

MTV, driving Dad's car on Mulholland.

That doesn't explain the Bushido.

Mom made me study martial arts

to get a Japanese identity.

Actually, she had this idea about

flower arranging first, but be serious.

What's your excuse?

I was raised in Japan.

Did you have to do

that flower-arranging stuff?

A warrior who knows only one side

leaves himself vulnerable to attack.

Many of the greatest samurai

also wrote haiku.

Those poems that don't rhyme.

This is the Bonsai Club. Japanese come

here for their own special kind of fun.

Get ready for some sudden

cultural immersion.

I'll warn you, I don't eat raw fish.

But that's just me.

I can't exactly get in the front.

They don't like me.

Why aren't I surprised?

Does everyone around here know you?

They know who I am.

Come on in.

How long did you study?
