That's her. My father's secretary.

Need a ride?

Going back to the office?

Yes...

I'd rather take a taxi.

I see that you're still stubborn.

We know that on the 28th of each month,

you take money from the account.

Don't worry. Get in.

Come, I insist.

- What are you doing?

- A little loan, if you don't mind.

You can't do that. That's theft!

You're thieves!

Fine. Help yourselves.

After all, it's your father's money.

She's right.

If I take my father's money,

it's not even theft.

I hoped you would take us to a movie.

I'm disappointed.

Give it back to her.

Give it back?

The game is over.

It was quite a laugh.

It's a pity though...

Toshio, it would be better if you

stopped playing jokes on people.

You'll end up in trouble.

Same to you.

You fake student.

- You're a good for nothing.

- Speak for yourself.

Be careful with other people's money.

It's good advice.

That tricky broad.

She doesn't lose anything by staying.

I'll make her swallow her pride.

Still, it makes me want to do something.

All the money that I'll never have.

It's crazy that it feels good to steal.

Like a fury that explodes in a single blow,

and tears down the walls of the old society!

Stop it! You sound

like a mass media commentator.

Makes me sick.

Good for nothing...

Society is full of contradictions,

you know.

And in the case of Japan,

with its fragile economy,

you can see this problem immediately.

All of us are here today.

The more you want to protect yourself,

the more unsatisfied you are.

Even unconsciously.

But it's not a question of pity

or letting go of your feelings.

Maybe not tomorrow,

but someday I'll be out on the street.

You're looking for excuses.

No doubt...

But by criticizing me,

you've already lost the game.

You're a whipped dog.

Nonsense. What are you thinking?

I haven't come here

to grovel in front of you.

Well, so much the better.

If you're simply my rivals,

I'll conduct this negotiation

like any other.

Mr. Akiyama, we're here to talk.

I think we can come to a compromise.

I'm afraid that's impossible.

We really can't agree?

How could we?

You see,

I honestly believe

that all men are wolves.

I wasn't expecting

to hear such nonsense.

I'm just going straight to the point.

At least stay true to your creed.

When dogs are beaten,

they're ready to bark.

Why are you laughing?

That story about wolves.

Oh yeah? Was it a strange argument?

It wasn't strange.

You look like one.

You shouldn't laugh.

Makes you look old.

It wrinkles the corners of your eyes.

It's just that there are wolves

who threaten other wolves.

And maybe you're

just a nice little lamb.

What do you mean by that?

The wolves were after your money.

When I left the bank,

Toshio and his friends ambushed me.

Idiots!

They have no sense of value.

That's all?

You won't scold them?

We no longer scold in a democracy.

I'd feel too sorry for them.

It's something from back in my time.

That's enough. I know this speech.

But there's surely

a fault in your liberalism.

Oh? It seems to me

that this is the best education

for my son.

You're right, since liberalism

pays off so well for you.

Free trade, free competition...
