Hey, push me again.
- See?
- Let me try.
You're no good.
What's wrong?
Come on.
Hurry up.
Mrs Okubo?
Hi. Thanks.
- Here it is.
- Thanks so much.
That spinach looks good.
It's very expensive. 20 yen.
- I can't even afford spinach now.
- I know.
I heard something strange.
Our dues weren't paid.
But we paid.
I know, but I ran into the chairwoman.
She said we haven't paid our dues.
But I paid.
So did I.
It doesn't make sense, then.
I know.
- Although...
- What?
She did just buy a washing machine.
Yes, but in instalments.
But isn't it strange about our dues?
Mrs Okubo?
- That's her.
- Yes?
- Here's the women's bulletin board.
- Thank you.
Back already? You're early.
What's wrong?
I'm back.
Where are you going? Not next door, I hope.
No, I'm going to study.
He's crazy about television.
- Sumo wrestling season?
- Yes.
What happened the other day?
- It's very strange.
- Why?
I'll go over first, Kouzou.
Please get me another pair of pants, Mum.
What's the matter? Diarrhoea?
Why do you soil your pants?
You do it every day.
I didn't buy a washing machine
just for your pants.
Mum, please give me a clean pair of pants.
Watching wrestling is okay,
but they never learn anything
worthwhile over there.
That figures.
We really shouldn't associate with them.
That couple is in their pyjamas all day long.
She used to work in a cabaret.
So she's that kind of woman, is she?
- I should be going.
- Of course.
How much is the sauce, though?
Don't worry about it. I owe you money, too.
- Thanks.
- See you later.
Hi. Come on in.
- Is Minoru here yet?
- Not yet.
Hailing from Hokkaido, Kitabayama is known
for his assiduous wrestling style.
To his right is Komaki from Yamagata.
Wakanohana's looking good today.
Who do you think will win?
That's easy. Isn't it?
Sure. He's got a great throw.
That's true.
Have some.
It's time to go.
Isn't your friend from next door coming?
Should we call him?
- Minoru!
- Minoru!
- Come on.
- What's the matter? Hurry up.
- I'm going.
- I'm going.
Where are you going?
To study English.
- Isamu, too?
- Yes.
You're not watching TV again, are you?
Don't go next door.
Foolish boys.
Mrs Hayashi?
I need to ask you something.
This might seem like a strange question,
but did you give our dues
to the chairwoman?
Yes, about 10 days ago.
I see. I thought so.
But she says she hasn't received them yet.
Not only that, but Mrs Haraguchi
just bought a washing machine.
But she wouldn't...
I know. But Mrs Okubo says
she gave the dues to you.
Yes, she did. Shall I ask the chairwoman?
But if she says
she hasn't received them yet...
I did give them to her.
Of course you did.
You wouldn't forget something like that.
How could this have happened?
This is so distressing.
Here is our hero, Wakahichibu.
He's tossing salt around the ring.
And here is his opponent in this title match.
Wakashichibu is...
What are you doing?
You're here again, Kouzou?
Don't you ever listen?
I'm sorry my son's always bothering you.
What about your English lessons?
Minoru's here, too?
And your mother will scold you, too, Zen.
It must be such a nuisance for you.
I don't mind.
All right, it's time to go home. Come on.
I'm not going. I'm done studying.
What? I'll tell your mother. Come on.
Have a good evening.
- Goodbye.
- Goodbye.
Tell your teacher "hello" from big sister.
Big sister? You mean from you?
Who else would it be?
What took so long?
What about your English lessons?
Hello, anybody home?
Yes, who is it?
I spoke with Mrs Tomizawa.
I told her I handed over our dues
more than a week ago.
All this fuss makes me feel
that I'm somehow responsible.
I'm really sorry.
Don't worry about it, Mrs Hayashi.
We know it's not your fault.
You didn't have to come just for that.
But I...
It's only because Mrs Tomizawa mentioned
a washing machine
that I began to wonder what happened.
That isn't what concerns me, though.
Well, of course it shouldn't.
But why hasn't the chairwoman received
the dues yet?
This is all just so unpleasant for you,
isn't it?
I'll ask Mrs Haraguchi.
I feel it's my responsibility.
Oh, I wouldn't bother with that.
It would only trouble her.
But I...
You don't have to worry. We all trust you.
Time will tell who's to blame.
Don't you worry.
It's a whodunit,
just like in that movie, remember?
- But I...
- Don't worry about it.
What are you guys up to?
- Have you finished that translation yet?
- I'm working on it.
Are you two done?
Go ahead. Read it to me.
Do you understand? Translate it.
"My sister is three years old,
and is younger than I am."
No, that's a bit different.
Translate it, Kouzou.
No, I said to translate it.
What does it mean?
Now, translate it.
Go ahead.
- Sorry, it's second nature now.
- What is?
We all do it now. Push me here again.
- Are you all right?
- Of course I am.
What is it?
I've been eating pumice powder every day.
Who told you to do that, silly?
Zen's father.
It doesn't help, you know.
He was only teasing you.
But it is true. Isn't it? He's really good at it.
You called me?
- No.
- All right.
- I'm back.
- I'm back.
- I'm back.
- I'm back.
Why don't you ever listen to me?
You were next door again.
So what? We went over to watch TV.
But I told you no.
- Then buy us a TV.
- Absolutely not.
Buy us a TV.
No. Now eat your supper.
Go ahead.
Dried fish and miso soup again?
Don't complain.
Are you going to complain, too, Isamu?
I won't.
Back already?
We're home.
- You came together?
- Yes, from the station.
- You're back.
- We're having dried fish again.
You said you wouldn't complain.
How are you?
- The pork soup's good.
- Is it? Good.
- But I don't want to eat it every night.
- Here you are.
What is it?
My teacher said that the translation
will be ready tomorrow.
All right.
How was the sumo wrestling today?
I wouldn't know.
We don't have a television set.
Mum, buy us a TV.
What about the radio?
- It has to be a TV.
- You can't see anything on the radio.
- Buy us a TV set.
- Buy us a TV set.
I already told you no.
Would you like a bath?
You filled the tub already?
Who spilled toothpaste in the bathroom?
- Not me.
- Me neither.
Who then?
I don't know.
Neither do I.
- Good morning, sir.
- Good morning, sir.
Good morning. Good morning.
Don't dawdle on the way.
- Yes, sir.
- Yes, sir.
Hey, are you ready?
No good.
Good. Now push me.
Let me try.
Let's go.
You've gotten really good.
Do you eat sweet potatoes?
Did you call me?
What is it?
I'm going to Kameido.
Do you want some sweets?
Yes, buy some.
It's a lovely day.
- Good morning.
- Good morning.
You're early.
- Are you done with the translations?
- I've had to look up every technical term.
I'm about 70% done.
My office needs it by today.
- How's the rest going?
- Let me see.
Will you take this, then?
- I'll finish the rest today.
- That would be great.
Sis, Setsuko is here.
Welcome. I thought it was you.
- Good morning.
- Good morning. Off to work already?
Yes. I'm sorry to have to
bother your brother.
No, it's good extra work.
My company folded,
so I'll do just about anything.
I'll take this. Goodbye.
There's talk about having the class reunion
at Chinzanso.
- Tell your sister.
- Yes, I will. Bye.
- Goodbye.
- Goodbye.
Setsuko's nice.
Wouldn't it be nice if she married you?
Are you joking? I'm out of a job now.
That's no problem. You'll find another one.
What about you? How's your job?
I may sell another Austin today.
Really? That's great.
Hello, is anyone here?
- Hello?
- Yes?
Oh, Mrs Haraguchi.
You should have come through the front.
Never mind that. Can I have a word?
Please come in. What is it?
It's a mess, but please come in.
All right.
We bought a washing machine, you know.
Yes, I heard.
I want one, too, but I can't afford it yet.
You can buy one if you want to.
It's your money, so why worry about it?
We're not rich like you.
But we bought one
without making a big fuss about it.
Mother's making money, too, you know.
We don't need to steal the dues.
The very idea of it. How insulting.
Who said such a thing?
Don't pretend you don't know. Ask yourself.
- What?
- I'm fastidious by nature.
I'd never steal anything.
Such hateful gossip.
I'm going to quit.
I've simply been made a fool of.
I'm afraid I don't understand.
The dues. You're the treasurer.
What about it?
You said you gave me the dues,
so now I look like a thief.
I haven't received the dues.
I took them over. I'm sure of it.
- When?
- The 28th of last month.
- I don't think so.
- But I did.
No, you didn't.
But I gave it to your mother.
Then she would have given it to me.
I wouldn't know. Ask her.
- Hello?
- Hi.
Please excuse me.
How do you do?
Do you want some rubber strings,
pencils or brushes?
We have everything we need.
Really? Everything?
That's what everybody says.
How about a pencil?
Quiet here, isn't it?
We don't need anything.
No? Don't say that. Come on. Buy a pencil.
It sharpens well.
How about you? Want a pencil?
Pencils, rubber strings,
toothbrushes, brushes?
Hey, missus. Missus.
- Mother.
- What's the fuss?
- Has a salesman come by?
- I haven't seen one.
Will you talk to him when he comes?
He's awful.
Why? What happened?
- Anybody here?
- See? He's here.
Yes, who is it?
How do you do?
Rubber strings, toothbrushes, pencils.
Scrubbing brushes.
No, thanks.
Do you want a pencil? It sharpens well.
Don't say that. Buy a pencil.
Can I sharpen it first?
Sure, sharpen it. Go ahead. Here.
Never mind.
I'll sharpen it with my own knife.
I've got cotton, too. Want some?
Give me the pencil.
That's sharp.
How much for them?
50 yen.
That's expensive. Too expensive.
What's the matter? Leaving?
Come again.
Shut the door.
- Is he gone?
- Yes, he even left a pencil. See?
- No one can contend with you.
- Can't be a coward and be a midwife.
Listen, you didn't by any chance
receive the dues?
I would have given it to you.
- You would?
- Yes.
Mrs Hayashi swears she paid you.
She didn't.
What is it?
Wait a minute.
Yes, this.
Why didn't you give it to me?
Well, I...
Well, what?
Thanks to you, I can't go anywhere
without feeling ashamed.
I'm the chairwoman.
I get blamed for everything.
You're so forgetful.
Why don't you go to Mt. Narayama
with all the other dying, old folk?
I just feel so sick.
Humiliated when I didn't need to be.
Senile old woman.
It's more than I can take.
Always fussing.
Thinks she grew up all by herself.
After driving me crazy.
Marrying a no-good husband.
Thinks she's hot stuff.
And bearing a son like that...
She's got some nerve.
It's me again.
Sorry about earlier.
I'm so sorry.
My mother is terrible.
She just told me she received the dues.
I don't think I can apologise enough.
I'm very sorry.
Well, now that you know, it's all right.
I'm really sorry.
I feel like crawling into a hole.
Please forget what I said earlier.
Sure. It's all right.
- Really?
- It's over.
I'm so glad. Thanks.
Don't tell anybody, will you? People gossip.
No, I won't.
Thanks again. Bye.
Mrs Haraguchi.
- Come look at this.
- What is it?
It's an alarm. The patent's pending.
Just push this in case of a burglary or fire,
and it can be heard for 200 metres.
A burglar alarm?
It deters pushy salesmen, too.
You should've come sooner.
Did he come here?
I had to buy pencils. Rubber bands, too.
That's why the police recommend this.
Would you like one?
Well, shall I buy one?
- How about your place?
- I have a better alarm.
- You do?
- My mother.
She can handle anything.
What a nice day.
Yes, it is.
All right. One more.
All right.
It's so cold.
You're late.
I bought this when I went out.
Tomorrow's races? Are you really into that?
How about the third race?
No good. Not a chance.
It's not worth it.
- No?
- No.
How about the other way round?
No good.
Here you are.
You think so?
Another one, please.
- Hey, get one more.
- All right.
- Welcome.
- Hello.
Did I leave my gloves here?
No. Have you seen them?
No, I haven't.
- Mr Hayashi.
- Oh, hello.
Come. Have a seat.
- Sure.
- Sit for a while.
- Give me some stew, please.
- Sure.
- Here.
- Thanks.
Here you are.
Where were you today?
I have no prospects,
but I have to eat.
Here, take this.
When is it for you?
Here you are.
Retirement. Retirement.
It's terrible. It's like slowly being killed.
The companies think we don't eat
after we retire.
But I eat and drink.
My wife worries, but I can't find a job.
I'm bogged down.
There's no place under the sky to hide.
It's so sad.
What about your pension?
No, no, the company is smart.
They won't pay much.
For 30 years, rain or shine...
riding in a crowded train.
It's all for nothing. Futile.
Mr Tomizawa.
Mr Tomizawa?
Leave me alone.
- Some cake, please.
- Sure.
What are you doing? You're not eating?
No? Fine.
It's no fun!
Behave, or I'll make you behave.
You're so stingy.
Go hungry, for all I care.
What about you, Isamu?
I won't eat.
Do as you wish.
Fools. How long are you going
to keep this up?
Come here, Isamu.
I won't go.
Why are you so unreasonable?
I'll tell your father.
I don't care. I'm not afraid.
That's your father now.
It's Father.
- You're home.
- Yes.
- It's cold, isn't it?
- Yeah.
I ran into Mr Tomizawa at the pub.
- He was pretty drunk.
- Really?
- What's going on here?
- They're impossible.
- What's wrong?
- They won't listen to me at all.
Even though I've told them not to,
they still go next door to watch TV.
So, buy us one.
They went next door
instead of English class again today.
They're such a nuisance.
Then buy us a TV set.
Buy one.
- No.
- Then I'll go next door to watch TV.
Me, too.
Such stubborn children.
I don't care.
You're the stubborn one.
We only go there
because we don't have a TV at home.
We wouldn't go if we had one.
- Quiet!
- Stop it, or your father will scold you.
I'm not afraid.
- I said quiet.
- I won't. I don't have to.
Look here.
What did you say?
No, let me go! Let go!
You talk too much.
When I tell you to stop, you stop.
I didn't say anything.
Fussing over such a small thing,
like a woman.
Children shouldn't talk so much,
so be quiet.
See? You were scolded.
I don't care. I want a TV.
You're talking too much.
So do grown-ups.
"Hello. Good morning. Good evening.
Have a good day."
"How far is it? Just a little way. Is that so?"
Just a lot of talk. "I see, I see." Forget that.
Silence! Be quiet.
Boys shouldn't prattle on.
Be quiet.
Fine. I'll be silent for days.
I'd certainly appreciate that.
- 100 days.
- No, don't you start.
No more talking.
Come on, Isamu.
All right, then.
Such a nuisance.
Don't ever speak, Isamu...
no matter what they say.
You understand? I mean it.
Don't talk. You got that?
Outside, too?
Yes. It's like a test.
- Good.
- Let me.
- Okay?
- Okay.
- This means I can talk, okay?
- Okay.
Farting's allowed.
- I'm home.
- Finally.
You're late.
Miss Fukui said
your class reunion may be at Chinzanso.
- That's nice. Were you over there?
- Yes.
Where are the boys?
- In their room.
- Okay.
Good, good. Studying?
Do you want some cake?
It's really good.
See? You want some?
What's wrong? Don't you want any?
All right, then. We'll eat it.
It's awfully good, though.
I'm hungry. Aren't you?
For good health and good business.
Mother! Time to eat! Mother!
Buy some pants for him on your way home.
Yes. Cheap ones will do.
You shouldn't.
Otherwise, your stomach won't get better.
This is so nice. It's so quiet.
Don't talk.
Do you think it will last?
Say goodbye.
Good morning.
You're early today.
Kouzou's still getting ready.
Kouzou. Kouzou.
Good morning. That's a lovely scarf.
Did you have a fight with Minoru?
No, I didn't.
See you later.
I wonder what happened. It's so strange.
Such odd children.
What's wrong?
What's going on?
The children from across the way
didn't even say "hello".
They both just looked at me
and didn't say a word.
Do you think Mrs Hayashi is still mad at me
about yesterday?
About the dues.
I don't think so.
Things like that happen all the time.
It all mother's fault, you know.
She didn't say anything to me.
If I hadn't asked her,
she might have spent it.
I wouldn't have.
Everyone forgets.
I don't. Not important things.
Of course you forget.
I should know.
What's that? What have I ever forgotten?
The gas bill I paid for you.
Is that all?
You do it, too, you know.
Yet you ignore your own faults.
Enough of that, already.
I'm going out.
All right, then.
Saying that she never forgets.
And she doesn't even remember
to pay me back.
She's always yakking away.
How on earth did I get a daughter like her?
Good morning.
Good morning.
Your husband's gone for the day?
He is.
I need to speak with you.
What's up?
She's an odd one.
Who? The cabaret woman?
Well, she's impossible, too.
But I mean Mrs Hayashi.
What about her?
Just because I was late with the dues,
she's been telling everyone
I used the money to buy a washing machine.
Has she? Why, that's awful.
I know. So I went over to complain.
She apologised,
and I thought we put the matter to rest.
But she's obviously still mad.
She's even told her children.
When I spoke to them this morning,
they completely ignored me.
I can't stand it.
Is she really like that?
She is. I was surprised, too.
- I never thought she was like that.
- I know.
She obviously holds grudges,
so you better watch out.
You're right. I better be on my guard.
Do you think I should return the beer
I borrowed?
Did you really borrow some?
Yeah, we were out.
Was that the other night?
Then you better hurry and return it.
You're right. I'm glad you told me.
Good morning.
- Hello?
- Oh, hello.
I forgot all about the beer.
I borrowed it the other day.
That's all right. There's no rush.
And here's the bus ticket you bought for me.
No, really, it's all right.
No, I should return it.
Mrs Tomizawa?
Are you here?
Hey, Mrs Okubo's here.
Hi, please come in.
What's going on?
If you've ever borrowed something
from Mrs Hayashi, you'd better return it.
- Why?
- Apparently, she likes to hold a grudge.
No. I've borrowed from her lots of times.
But she does. I was told so.
It came as a shock to me, too.
She seems educated, but one never knows.
That's too true.
Our cat stole some of her dried fish.
Do you think I should return it?
I will, then.
I already have.
It's such a weight off my chest.
Do you all understand the game?
Start with the last letter of the last word.
Crow, worm, moon.
Okay. What's next?
Yes, Akita.
Man, mask, moonlight.
No, the word has to start with an N.
It is Suzunosuke Akado.
No, no. Start with the letter N.
Yes, Hayashi.
What starts with the letter N?
There are lots of words that do,
aren't there?
What's wrong?
Is something the matter?
The toilet?
What does that mean?
What's wrong?
I don't understand.
All right, read it. Read it for me.
Speak up. I want you to read it out loud.
You know what it says.
All right, stay there.
That's all for now.
Remember to bring
your lunch money tomorrow.
- Yes, sir.
- Good.
And please remember to bring
your lunch money tomorrow.
- Yes.
- Yes.
Do you understand?
Please raise your hand if you do.
- Yes.
- Yes.
What about our lunch money?
Should I tell Mum?
No way. And no more talking.
What are we gonna do?
How long do you think they'll last?
It's best to just ignore them.
They're at that rebellious stage.
They're so much like their father.
They're so stubborn.
They take after you.
That's not true.
It makes you wonder.
What's the matter?
- What's wrong?
- What is it?
What do you think?
I don't know. Do you have any ideas?
What is it?
A building? A large house?
The government building? A temple?
A hospital?
A school?
School? What about school?
Is it on fire?
Not a fire? It's not a fire?
Drinking tea? Then what?
Drinking tea, eating?
Money? Is it money?
So, the firemen put out the fire,
and you paid them and gave them tea?
- What?
- Is that it?
Do you know?
I haven't got a clue. What's this about?
What did he mean?
I have no idea.
One, two, three, four, five, six.
One, two, three, four, five, six.
One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight.
One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight.
One, two, three, four, five, six.
He's good.
Of course he is.
He works for the gas company.
Minoru's good, too, but now he won't talk.
Not even at school.
Five, six, seven, eight.
One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight.
One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight.
Why won't you talk?
Don't you find it inconvenient?
What's wrong?
Did you take a vow?
What is it?
Still eating pumice powder?
If you keep that up,
you'll die with a stomach full of stones.
- Really?
- Yes.
You know that seal that died at the zoo?
It's stomach was full of stones.
It thought the stones the visitors threw
were food.
Who is it?
- Hello.
- Oh, it's you. What is it?
What are you doing here, boys?
Why don't you come and watch TV?
Are there any vacant rooms here?
I don't think so. You should ask downstairs.
Do you know of anywhere else?
I don't know. Who's looking?
I am. I want to move.
The neighbours are so tiresome.
Don't you know of anywhere at all?
Not really.
You're not exactly friendly, are you?
Oh, it's you.
So you're here.
I have more translation work for you.
Was the other translation okay?
It was.
I'll be back in four or five days for these.
Great. And thanks for the work.
Thank you.
What happened to these two?
They won't talk.
They were scolded for talking too much,
so now they won't talk at all.
Is that so?
What did you say?
Say something, Isamu.
Come on.
What's the matter?
They said grown-ups talk too much, too.
"Good morning. Good evening. Good day.
Have a good day."
Yes, that's true.
We do say those things.
Yeah, we certainly do.
But maybe it's necessary.
It'd be a dull world without it.
Yes, but the children
don't understand that yet.
No, they wouldn't know that yet.
But it does make the world go round.
Don't you agree?
Hey, Isamu. What are you mad about?
Is that so? I see.
Is that so?
Here, have a drink.
- Is that too much?
- No, no. Not at all.
Never mind.
Drinking and smoking
are a waste of time, too.
But why worry?
That's right.
I know how the kids feel
when they ask you to buy it.
I'd like one, too, but I can't afford it.
That's not the problem.
I'm against buying one.
I remember hearing someone say
that TV just produces a society of idiots.
Is that so? What do they mean?
It means the Japanese
will be reduced to idiots.
Now, that would be a travesty.
But what does it really mean?
What do you think?
About television?
You mean the idiot box?
You've heard of that?
Oh, yeah. TV is a total waste of time.
You think so?
Who knew?
I guess it's a bad idea
to have too many conveniences.
That's right.
If you say so.
I'm back.
Have you come to visit us?
I'm glad you came. You're a good boy.
You're back already?
I'm sorry, Mrs Hayashi.
Is my wife out?
Thanks for house-sitting.
Your home's next door.
Is it?
Oh, my gosh. Sorry about that.
Do you need a hand?
No, I'm all right.
I'm home.
I feel good.
Were you drinking again?
Bingo! I found the right place this time.
I feel good.
I don't believe it.
I feel good, so leave me alone.
I feel so good.
Listen, are you done?
Not yet.
What time is the truck coming?
It'll come around 3:00, so hurry up.
What are you doing? What's the rush?
The next door neighbours are moving.
Yes, I saw. Neighbours are a pain, though.
I feel like moving, too.
But neighbours are everywhere.
Unless you live in the mountains.
Do mice gnaw on pumice stone?
I don't think so.
That's odd, then. It's going fast.
Should I put some rat poison on it?
I'm hungry. We haven't had any snacks.
I know.
I don't think we should eat pumice stone
anymore. Won't we die?
We're not full of stones yet, are we?
- It's our teacher.
- What'll we do?
Come on.
Is that so?
I scolded them for talking too much.
I see. At least now I understand
what was going on.
Isamu won't talk, either.
I'm sorry they gave you so much trouble.
Raising children is a difficult task.
You should be more strict with them.
- We wouldn't mind at all.
- No, I'm afraid not.
Hi. Oh, you have a guest.
Please, come in. I was just leaving.
Thank you and goodbye.
Thank you.
They'll bring their lunch money tomorrow.
Great. Thank you.
- Come in, Mr Tomizawa.
- Thanks. Excuse me.
Lovely weather, isn't it?
Yes. A spell of lovely weather.
- Welcome.
- I'm sorry about last night.
I was scolded by my wife this morning.
You seem in good spirits today.
Rejoice in my good fortune. I found a job.
That's great.
It's not a big company.
Kowa Electric Company. Do you know it?
Across from a restaurant. I'm in sales.
That's good.
Hard work, though.
I have to do door-to-door.
I see. Toasters, mixers.
And washing machines, too.
How about buying one?
We can't.
How about buying something?
We have instalments, too.
We must buy something to celebrate
your new job.
Please do that. I have other catalogues.
I'll get them. Just a sec.
It's time for us to think about it, too.
Want some tea?
Yes, please.
Messy, isn't it?
Yes. Fun, isn't it?
I want rice.
It tastes good.
I'd like some side dish, too.
- Shall I get it?
- Yes, get some.
Hey, look!
Hurry up, Minoru!
Who is it?
- Hello.
- Good evening.
Our boys aren't here?
No. Anything wrong?
Did they come at all?
No, not today.
- What is it?
- They went out in the afternoon.
You must be worried.
Yes. But they may be home now.
Good night.
Take care.
- Goodbye.
- Goodbye.
I wonder what's going on.
Strange kids. Still not talking?
It's rather interesting.
For children, our greetings may seem
like a waste of time.
I do it all the time to sell cars. I have to.
Yes, it acts as a social lubricant
in our world.
But important things are difficult to say.
Whereas, meaningless things
are easy to say.
You, too.
What do you mean?
- Can't admit you're in love.
- What?
About Setsuko.
You only talk of the weather and work,
but you never say how you feel.
You're wrong.
I'm not wrong. I know.
Get around to important things.
Go out and look?
- What?
- The kids.
They're out since this afternoon?
It's too long.
Yes. Shall I look for them?
- Yes, you do that.
- Okay.
It's cold. Wear something warm.
I will.
Check in front of the cinema.
I'm back. Are they home?
- Not yet.
- I see.
I went to his apartment.
What's that?
I got it at the police station.
They left them and ran away.
Where did they go? Do you have any idea?
I'll go and look.
No, I'll go.
- Where'd they go?
- The nuisances.
It's cold. Wear something warm.
- Good evening.
- Yes?
- Hi.
- Good evening.
Come in.
Where were you?
They're back.
Please don't scold them.
They were watching TV
in front of the station.
Thank you very much.
Idiots. You made us worry.
Well, I must be going now.
- Thank you very much.
- Thanks a lot.
- Goodbye.
- Goodbye.
Goodbye, boys.
Come in.
Don't worry. Come in.
Come on up.
Come on.
- It's awesome.
- Yeah.
- You bought it?
- You really bought it?
Yes, Father did.
It's brilliant!
Mr Tomizawa brought it over.
- How much?
- It's expensive!
How much?
Never mind.
You two study hard now.
- Yes, I will!
- Yes, I will.
Are we lucky! Nice?
We can watch baseball too. Are we lucky!
Aren't you hungry?
No. Teacher treated us to noodles.
Dumplings, too.
I see. Not hungry, then?
I'm so happy!
Look here!
If you're noisy, I'll return it!
He's lying. His face says so.
He's smiling.
Watch it!
- I'm going!
- I'm going!
Take care.
Have the TV ready when we come home!
We're off!
Good morning! Did Kouzou go?
Kouzou. Kouzou.
Good morning! Did Zen go?
- Yes, he just left.
- Thanks.
Hurry up, Kouzou!
- I'm going!
- Yeah, I'm going, too.
What's going on?
They talked, didn't they?
What happened?
Listen, Mrs Tomizawa!
What is it?
What is it?
The Hayashi boys were
very cheerful this morning.
Yes. They said, "Good morning".
You've got them all wrong.
That family is nice, and Mrs Hayashi's
very understanding.
Think so?
Yes, you're wrong.
I'm going shopping. Need anything?
No? Okay, then.
What's with her?
I guess the Hayashis bought
a hot plate or something.
You're probably right.
She's a calculating woman.
You still eat pumice stone?
It's bad for you. You'll die.
I've quit. I've switched to burdock.
Push me.
Now me.
Your turn.
No good. You're still no good.
What's the matter?
I'm going home.
I'll come later.
Good morning.
- Good morning. Thanks for last night.
- No problem.
Where to?
- To West Ginza.
- Then we can go together.
A lovely day, isn't it?
Yes, it really is a lovely day.
Do you think we'll have nice weather
for a while?
Let's see.
It does look like we'll have nice weather
for a while.
That cloud's an interesting shape.
Yes, it is an interesting shape.
It kind of looks like something.
Yes, like something.
What a lovely day.
Yes, a really fine day.
You're a fool.
And such a big boy, too.
What a nuisance.
I won't die, will I?
I swallowed pumice stone by mistake.
You'd be better off dead,
being absent from school like this.
I won't feed you till you're well.
You hear me?
Can I have clean underwear, please, Mum?
You won't wear any until you're better.
