# ...and talkin' back #

# When I was born #

# My daddy tried to send me back #

Whoa, buddy...

- What are you doing?

- Hi.

Lisa Strobel.

Key West Boat Repair.

Joe. Joe's Gym.

What are you doing to my boat?

You wanted a varnish.


The Brass is tarnished.


I thought this "T" was a "V".


- I wouldn't go in there.

- Why not?

Because I varnished the cabin, too.

- It really needed it.

- Yeah.

How long does it take

for this stuff to dry?

48 hours.

That's two days.

- Where am I going to sleep?

- Oh, well.

- Do you live on this boat?

- Yeah.

I got an idea.

I got an extra bunk on my boat.

Oh, no. That's OK.

I'll be fine.

Then let me make you dinner.

What do you like better,

chicken or fish?

Uh... what?

What do you prefer,

chicken or fish?

Usually, uh, chicken, but--

OK, great. Chicken.

It's about 2:

We could eat about 6:00,

or would 7:
00 be better for you?


I really got to go to the gym.

00 it is.

Look, I'm in Slip 36-D.

- You're going to love my cooking.

- Yeah.

Everything is secure, Mr. Glock.

The hotel's closed for one week

at your request.

Thank you.

Take a vacation for one week, huh?


[alarm sounds]

Flathead, I have done it.

My pesticide leaves no residue,

not even a trace.

Congratulations, Doc.

Perfect timing.

Now we'll have a real test.


We're not testing Z-B-12

that innocent animal.

I have my orders.

And I have my morals.

Take me to Mr. Glock at once.


Trust me, general.

You'll receive your

merchandise soon enough.

I better.

Simon, I must speak with you.

- I'm in a meeting, Doctor.

- I'm afraid this cannot wait.

Excuse me a moment, general.

What is the meaning

of this interruption?

Z-B-12 was designed for insects.

True, but we must

determine its toxicity, Doctor,

otherwise, human lives

may be at risk, correct?

Please, Doctor, my intentions

are nothing except honorable.

Then why is General Zubino here?


Escort the good doctor

back to the lab

and keep him there.


- More delays, Glock?

- No, not at all, general.

- You have two days.

- Two days? But we agreed--

Deliver the gas, Mr. Glock,

or my army will use your hotel

for missile practice.

Get me the Viper!

Viper, we need assurances

that Dr. Strobel

will complete his work.

Go to America at once.

Perhaps his lovely daughter

will help convince him.


Joe, we got to talk.

In a minute, Tetsu.

I'm kind of busy.

I got a plane to catch,

and obviously this is not your day.


Now, come on, Joe,

you going to housesit

for me this weekend or what?

- Oh, yeah. I forgot.

- Forgot?

- What, problems?

- No. No problems. Uh,

- perfect timing.

- Great. Great, great, great.

Here are the house keys.

- Trash out on Sundays.

- Trash out on Sundays.

Who's the boy?

That's my nephew Hiro.

Bonsai need watering

every morning.

Take them out now

and then to breathe.


Take them out to breathe.

I didn't know you had a nephew.

He's my grandnephew.

The last of my Ninja Todai Clan.

Oh... that's your last ninja, huh?

Yeah. He needs a little help,

but he's great at computers.

Loves football.

Hey, Joe, maybe--

Maybe you could teach him.

Ah, Tetsu, you know

I don't teach kids anymore.

Aw, come on, Joe.

I mean, what--

Oh, no.

That's Tadashi's student.

Well, maybe it's time

you tried to do it again.

Look, bedtime's at 9:00,

and don't let him play

with the machine too much.

Hey, Tetsu, I said

I'd housesit, not babysit.

Joe, there's nobody else.

Well, what about his parents?

Come here.

Her mother died during childbirth.
