Agua la vista... baby.

MAN:

Hello, my name's Jimmy Tong

and I was wondering

if there's anything I could say

that would convince you

to have lunch with me.

MAN 2 (imitating woman):

Oh, Jimmy, you're so cute.

Let's go back to your apartment

and make like... donkey.

You got me nervous again.

It's just a salesgirl.

To you... but, to me...

I dream of her

before I ever saw her.

No, that there! That!

Shh.

That is the line.

Go tell her that. That line.

Listen.

Hi.

My name is Jimmy Tong.

When I see you,

I have a wet dream.

Is that what I say?

No, no, you know...

just ask her out to lunch now

and later,

we work out that line.

But hurry up, man.

We be wasting time, man.

Come on. We have to drive.

(anxious sighing)

And whatever you do,

do not be yourself.

Just joking.

(sighs)

WOMAN:

Thank you so much.

You're welcome. Good-bye.

(sighs)

I can do it.

Hi. My name's Jimmy Tong.

Okay...

(exhales)

Hi.

Hi.

Pretty colors.

Will you excuse me

for just one moment?

Okay.

(anxious sighing)

Ah...

Just between us guys...

you don't come around

here for the art, do you?

Who would?

Heh. Yeah.

Uh... let me,

as owner of this gallery

give you a little bit

of friendly advice.

Don't waste any time.

You go over there and

you ask Jennifer out.

You think so?

Yes. That way, she can say no

and we can get on

with our little lives.

Thank you for your advice.

Yeah.

Hello. My name Jimmy Tong.

What can I say to convince you

to have lunch with me?

Oh!

Hi. Hello.

Sauerkraut?

(roaring)

(clanks)

(grunting)

Hey... hey, hey!

Hey! I just washed that car.

What the hell

wrong with you, boy?

Want I jam this in your ass

and break it?

You want a go? Come down here.

Whoa, whoa, wait, oh.

Not too fast.

- Not too fast.

- (tire iron clanks)

Hey, I just want to talk.

Eh, eh, you do that

there, man. You do that.

Oh, you're scared now.

(clucking)

Just-just go

and get yourself

some training wheels!

Go get a tattoo of a chicken!

Go!

I thought all your

people know karate.

Not everybody Chinese

is Bruce Lee.

Just calm yourself, eh,

Jimmy, calm yourself.

Just not my day.

Whoo! Wow.

Do you think you can get me

to 70 Fleming Street?

Of course. Wait a second.

(metallic thumping)

(blowing)

You Jimmy Tong?

That's who I am.

Who are you?

The name is Steena.

So, how come you drive so fast?

More fares.
