Smoking (2018) s01e09 Episode Script

Episode 9

THIS WORK DEPICTS ACTS OF VIOLENCE, SO SOME SCENES MAY BE SHOCKING Hey! During the previous Cold Wars, we'd make five billion yen in one night.
This underground fighting business has taken off nicely.
Thank you very much.
It's all thanks to your arrangements, Chairman.
You speak too highly of me.
Sometimes, I reflect on how animalistic humans really are.
For example, monkeys share their food preferentially with those who groom them.
Even with no prospect of immediate reward, they'll cooperate with others for future rewards.
Monkeys? Yes, monkeys.
And when they realize they are getting an unfair deal, they are emotionally driven to consciously refuse it.
This has been documented.
I see.
The concept of transactions is not unique to humans, then.
Taking advantage of each other to obtain mutual benefits is our destiny as a species.
I see.
I trust that you will continue to support Bikoku Assembly as you did in my father's and grandfather's time for our mutual development.
You have my word.
BENTO BOXES You're still pretty damn tough, Number 56.
Where's Minami? Uncle Sabe.
Isn't that bonsai wilting? It's been struggling for a few days now.
Hifumin, I want to provide it with some nutrients.
I'm starving.
I want nutrients too.
That gorilla.
I bet he forgot about us when he went to get our lunch.
Where's Minami? The camera's over here.
Look at the camera.
Look into the camera.
I think you've figured it out by now, Number 56.
Your nickname "Goro" derives from your number.
A pretty straightforward name.
Hey, Goro.
There's a little job I'd like you to do for me.
As you can see, I only have one eye at the moment.
Stop it! Look this way, honey.
The camera's over here.
Over here, honey.
Let Minami go.
What do you think we should do? Help me out.
I'll give you plenty of what you crave.
If I fight, you'd better let Minami go.
The Cold Wars, right? They pumped him full of stimulants and made him fight.
He was brutal, wasn't he? Yes.
He was completely consumed by the drugs.
Goro's rampages were on a totally different level.
He won fight after fight.
He sent several other fighters to the grave.
- Give it to me.
- Where's your money? You're a pitiful sight, Number 56.
What? His withdrawal symptoms weren't pretty.
I couldn't watch.
To be honest, I wasn't sure if he would completely recover.
He was in a terrible state.
This room is completely soundproof.
You can shout as much as you want.
Once the drugs wear off, his withdrawal symptoms will kick in.
We'll take turns watching him.
You fought well.
The drugs will leave your body soon.
After that, you're free.
I have no family.
I have nowhere to return to.
I'm just a walking bag of living flesh.
I killed so many people there.
Stop! Some begged for their lives.
But without any hesitation, I A monster like me doesn't deserve to live.
You're right.
You didn't deserve to live as long as you fought there.
But, from now on you're free to live as you like.
I can live as I like? I can keep on living? Do you want to use your strength to serve a different cause? A different cause? Yes.
Work with us.
Of course, the final decision rests with you.
That's it.
But damn, your hair stinks.
When was the last time you washed? Are you a new guy? What's your name? My name? He's Goro.
This is Goro.
Nice to meet you! Goro? Hey, Goro.
Crush these cans.
You have to earn your keep.
We'll split up and search.
Goro! He's going to fight for you.
What? You're bait to lure him here.
What do you mean? Now, the "Smoking Destruction Show" begins.
I don't need it.
Once banished from the Cold Wars, its strongest fighter ever has returned.
The greatest bets ever are being placed on this too.
A beautiful story.
Kill him! I didn't notice how much time had passed.
It's been delightful.
I was able to forget about my daily troubles.
Troubles? What is causing them? A journalist is about to break a scandal on a certain Diet member.
This Diet member is very obedient to my organization, and we are grooming him to become Prime Minister.
If that journalist were silenced, it would help us enormously.
I see.
Consider it done.
This matter does not concern the journalist's family.
The situation is complicated enough.
I understand.
I will not repeat my previous mistakes.
Kenuma, what happened to your eye? Are you all right? I am.
Take care of yourself.
Kenuma, you're Mr.
Sunaji's valuable right-hand man.
Thank you, Chairman.
Boss, let's get rid of that brat and take his power from him.
You don't understand anything about how this world works, do you? Stop being so brash.
Keep that up and that’s as far as you’ll get Grow up a little.
Excuse me.
I'd like you to return our colleague.
Colleague? A former fighter, known as Number 56.
