Come here

What is it?

Just come


- I'm screwed

- Huh?

It's late


It's too late!

You okay?

What am I going to do?

I don't understand

Like I said, it's late!


It's late!

Oh! That's serious trouble!


You should meet her

parents to discuss it

Her parents?

What're you talking about?

It's late, right?

What's late?

Like you said, it's late, right?

What're you talking about?

Well, don't make me blurt it out

Just say it

You know, um, your woman's...

monthly cycle thing... is late, right?

Idiot! I'm talking about

the opponent being late!

- Change into these

- Huh?

- We don't have time so hurry!

- Wha...?

You're the closest thing

To what?

A Thai

This won't work

You'll look the part

Go find one on the streets

Find what?

A Thai person

We don't have time for that!

But I've never kickboxed

Just go down in round 2

It's fixed?

You moron! Don't talk so loud!

I appreciate it

Hey, wait a sec...

I'm sorry, sir...!

And now for tonight's main event!

In the blue corner,

at 118 pounds,

the legendary warrior from

Thailand, Mori Champur!

No way, man!

And in the red corner,

at 126 pounds,

the underground kickboxing

champion, Tiger Ishikura!

The champion?

Yup, the champ

Jesus, you didn't say

he was the champion!

This is serious sh*t!

He means business!

What is it?

- Dance...

- Huh?

It's the ritual before

every Muay Thai match

I don't even know how to do it!

Just go out and shake your body!

- Now pray!

- What?


Make it stop!

This guy's serious!

Don't worry

I can't win

No need to win

But I'm scared

Go down in round two

He's staring me down!

You're Thai so quit speaking

Japanese or we'll get caught

Easy for you to say!

Two rounds, got it?

I can't!

Sure you can! Just go out there!

Go, you moron!

The winner is Mori Champur!

Outta my way! Move!

What do you think you're doing, punk?


Take me for a fool?

I'll kill you!



Go after 'em, go!

That way!

Come back, you punk!

Jesus, you almost killed me!

Who are you, anyway?

How'd you get in here?

Cars aren't supposed to come in here!

Now hurry and back up!

I said back up!

Don't you understand?

Get in! Hurry!

Sh*t, they're coming!

What're you doing?

Can't open it... The gloves...


What're you waiting for?

Get out of the way!


Why in hell do I have to

go through this crap?

You shouldn't have won!

That's not the issue!

That is the issue! If you had...

They're back!

No way!

Jesus Christ!

Oh, sh*t!

Hey, step on it

Sh*t! What're we gonna do?


They'll kill us! They'll kill us!

What should we do? Hey!

Quit fidgeting! Stay cool!

I don't wanna die!

What're we gonna do?

We can't do anything!

You're the one that

said you're hungry

You chose that restaurant

It's over

It's all over

See, I know how to pick a place

Never would've known,

a restaurant like this...

There's just something different

about a classy joint, huh?


Something about its air

It's different

Must be the owner's

passion being manifested

The passion for valuing customers

Not everybody notices these things,

but I have a knack for picking up on it

I'm not interested in places

you find in magazines

I like to discover them

Or rather, it's like they're

beckoning me, you know?

Mind if we share the table?

Um, sure

Boss, go ahead

Pardon us

Give him a light when he

brings out a cigarette!

Good place, huh?

Uh, yes

I own it

Who'd you guys bet on?
