The Bodyguard

Synopsis: A pop singer has been receiving threatening notes, and her manager hires a bodyguard known for his good work. The bodyguard ruffles the singer's feathers and most of her entourage by tightening security more than they feel is necessary. The bodyguard is haunted by the fact that he was on Reagan's secret service staff but wasn't there to prevent the attack by Hinckley. Eventually the bodyguard and the singer start an affair, and she begins to believe his precautions are necessary when the stalker strikes close to home.

This battle

is the chance of a lifetime!

Crazy fool!

The chance to get killed!

24

00:
04:06,121 -- 00:04:07,830

Why do you want

to be a gambler?

25

00:
04:07,998 -- 00:04:11,125

A farmer's place

is in the fields.

26

00:
04:11,293 -- 00:04:14,837

A long life eating gruel -

to hell with that!

27

00:
04:15,339 -- 00:04:17,506

I want good food

and nice clothes.

28

00:
04:17,674 -- 00:04:19,926

I'm gonna live it up

and die young!

Old man.

30

00:
04:30,312 -- 00:04:32,355

I'd like some water.

31

00:
04:34,816 -- 00:04:36,901

Why the hell didn't you stop him?

32

00:
04:37,069 -- 00:04:39,904

How could I?

33

00:
04:41,198 -- 00:04:47,161

Kids these days are all mad.

34

00:
04:49,831 -- 00:04:52,083

It's not just the kids.

35

00:
04:52,250 -- 00:04:55,544

Everyone wants easy money.

36

00:
04:55,837 -- 00:04:57,463

It's all thanks to gambling.

37

00:
04:57,631 -- 00:05:00,007

A roll of the dice and you're rich.

38

00:
05:00,175 -- 00:05:03,386

Can't tell whose money

is whose anymore.

39

00:
05:07,391 -- 00:05:10,351

Have you heard

the sake brewer's trading silk now?

40

00:
05:11,353 -- 00:05:14,188

Says he'll pay more

than the silk merchant.

41

00:
05:14,731 -- 00:05:16,857

Yes, but...

42

00:
05:17,109 -- 00:05:20,027

what difference does it make...

43

00:
05:21,154 -- 00:05:24,115

with the town the way it is?

44

00:
05:24,449 -- 00:05:30,371

We don't even know

when the next silk fair will open.

45

00:
05:34,835 -- 00:05:38,421

Hungry dogs come running

when they smell blood.

46

00:
05:40,090 -- 00:05:44,010

Let 'em rip each other apart

and dye the silk in their blood.

47

00:
05:44,219 -- 00:05:46,637

Then they can have

their stinkin' fair!

48

00:
07:23,819 -- 00:07:26,278

SILK MERCHANT:

49

00:
07:58,770 -- 00:08:03,023

Samurai, wanna make

some dough as a bodyguard?

50

00:
08:03,191 -- 00:08:05,526

The going rate has hit the roof.

51

00:
08:06,027 -- 00:08:07,528

My commission's one ryo.

52

00:
08:07,696 -- 00:08:10,447

Which side will you take?
