A bright, hard-working, 'good man'

who may be considered good husband

material by Japanese elders.

""To live is to prepare for goodbye...""

""For loneliness is a friend who will not betray".

"Shiver not in the pouring love,

instead buy an umbrella...""

Buy an umbrella?.

Give it back to me!

I'll let you see it when I'm done.

"Sayonara Itsuka?. "

Why prepare for "goodbye" ?.

What's the point of writing this poem?.

I want to see you off at the airport...


Weren't you preparing for "goodbye"?.

That's 'just a poem', sir.

I'll be all alone for three months.

What am I going to do?.

What else?. You'll wait for me.

Wait, wait.

Stop, stop.

Shall I not go?.

Koseinen, what a big lie!

A koseinen should behave.

We made a promise.

To wait until our honeymoon.


I can't wait.

Therefore, we have decided to expand...

Eastern Airlines's flights to Southeast Asia.


Kuala Lumpur,


and Bangkok.

One of these four airports

will become our Southeast Asian hub

and the focal point of our regional expansion.

In other words,

whether we remain as the Bangkok branch,

or become Southeast Asia headquarters

lies solely on our results.

This is a good opportunity.

So let's keep it up.

I have a suggestion.

What is it?.

What is it this time?.

Go on.

Tell me, why is our gate

stuck in a corner out of everybody's sight?.

Why can't we be next to Pan Am?.

Why can't we be right at the center of attention,

like Air France?.

What's your point?.

We should move.

Can it be done?.

Why not?.

Come on. How could we possibly pull that off?.

You think you can do it?.

"Mai pen rai." (no problem)

Wow... She's beautiful!

I look much better.

How nice.

I'm so jealous.

Did you set the date?.

Congratulations! Cheers!

Here's to the groom!

Alright everyone, listen, effective immediately,

Yutaka Higashigaito is officially expelled

from the Japanese Bachelors' Association.

What are you talking about?.

I still have a few months left.


You'll play it like a bachelor

until your fiance shows up?.

I don't believe it. You greedy bastard.

Did you see that?.

That smile...

stole all my girls since high school...

Three months, can you wait?.

Of course.

I love her.

Did you hear that?.

All my ladies fell for that shit!

Your "ladies"?.

Just because a girl is hot doesn't mean

she's your "lady."

Why isn't she coming?.


My lady.

There he goes again.

Let's see how long it lasts.

It was always over before you even got started.

She is different.

She's a goddess.

Words can't describe her.

When she walks by,

every man melts like piles of shit.

It's like Moses and the Red Sea,

like a parting sea, paving the path...

We must worship her.

Once she showed up without a bra...

There they were... Her nipples...

Her perky nipples...

They are a work of art.

It's crowded here.

Please, sit here.

Hey, how about an introduction?.

Th- this is Touko Manaka...

And this is... umm...

Hey, what was your name?.

Let's toast, cheers!

You don't mind beer?.

There's only foam.

Cheers! To a happy marriage!

Is someone getting married?.

He is.



Did you read the papers?.

The Americans are withdrawing.

What do you mean?.

Vietnam, don't you know?.

America lost.

So did Japan.

Finally, Eastern Airlines proudly brings to you

our special raffle for exclusive tour packages

Catherine, did you try out the strawberry shampoo

I got you from Japan?.

This is my friend, Yutaka.

Find a nice Japanese girl for him, yeah?.

Thank you very much.

Thank you.

See?. Eastern Airlines is the best!
