Haven't I told you this is illegal...

...and it pisses me off?

You're under arrest.

Not tonight, Kenner.

Kick his ass!

$5,000 on the new guy!

That's a good bet.

Was that an offer?

I'm too much woman for you, Kenner-san.

You better start with something easier.

We are from

the New Merchants Association.

You are highly thought of

in the community.

We are looking for a donation.

I give each year,

to fund the lights and the parade.

We were thinking more of a percentage

of your gross profits. From now on...

...deliveries will be kept on time.

The bad element will stay away.

You will keep from getting hurt.

Things are changing around here.

The Yakuza will take care of

any problems you may have.

The Yakuza? Here?

This is not Tokyo, this is America!

I'm only a small businesswoman, please.

You got a problem, f***er?

No problem at all.

Come on. Don't do this.

If I don't get breakfast, I get real grumpy.

You wouldn't like me grumpy.

Put it down. Now!

Come on, Champ.

Police! Hold it!

All right, say it.

Asian Task Force. You're Kenner?

Nelson sent me. I'm your new partner.

Really? Looks like they all got away.

Good job, Officer.

All that upper-body strength

really slows you down.

- I'm not slow.

- You didn't hit me.

If I did, you wouldn't be here.

I'm not arguing.

But you didn't.


Here's one.

- Should I read him his rights?

- Sure, if it makes you feel better.

But I don't think he's conscious.

You're right.

Down there.

Good luck.


Good luck.

Too bad. Good luck.

These are my ex-partners.

You got a name?

How long you been in LA?

I don't think Bozohead speaks English.

You want to tell me what's going on?

He works for a group called

"Tetsu No Tsume".

The Iron Claw.

He's Yakuza, a perversion of the warrior

class. It dates back to the 12th century.

So, they've been pissing you off

for a long time?

This isn't going to work. I'll have Nelson

send you back to wherever he found you.

Don't do that.

They don't really want me back.

I have a problem keeping partners, too.

I'm not surprised. I hate you already.

I want to find out his boss's name.

- His "oy"ab"u"n.

- O"y"ab"u"n?

- Lf he tells you, the boss won't be happy.

- His choice.

What's he doing?


The guy was nuts!

- What the f*** did he do?

- Made his choice.

In his world,

that was the honorable way to die.

What world is that?

Let me get this straight.

You lost all your suspects

because you were whacking each other?

Yeah, except one.

He just broke his own neck.

You arrest the nicest people.

Mr. Yoshida, you can have

the Bonsai Club and the girl!

I'll work for you!

Please! I'll give you anything!

No, come on, please!

Get me out of here!

Tanaka should have retired

when we gave him the chance.

One must submit to the inevitable.

Hate to see him die that way.

It crushes me.

How you doing?

- I thought you quit that stuff.

- I heard something.

- The sound of your brain frying.

- They sent guys to kill Tanaka.

What are you talking about?

- These guys scare the sh*t out of me.

- Why do you still hang around them?

Come with me.

Mr. Yoshida wants to see you.

"T"ana"k"a, "liste"n "to me. "

"These guys" a"re" ba"d" n"ews. "

"Who told you they ow"n"ed" a b"eer f"a"ctory? "

"They're t"a"lki"n"g" ab"out t"a"ki"n"g over"

"your Bo"n"s"a"i Clu"b, an"d everythi"n"g else. "

"I'm" n"ot kiddi"n"g. They'll kill you"

"if you do"n"'t do wh"a"t they s"a"y. "

That was foolish.

You're our guest.

Loyalty is an admirable trait.

But Mr. Tanaka is retiring.

I don't believe you.
