Pete: How could Debbie like me? She likes me, she *loves* me. The biggest problem in our marriage is that she wants me around. She loves me so much that she wants me around all the time. That's our biggest problem and I can't even accept that. Like, that upsets me?
Bouncer: It's not cuz you not hot, I would love to tap that ass. I would TEAR THAT ASS UP. I can't let you in cuz you old as f--k. For this club. Not, you know, for the earth. You old, she pregnant, can't have a bunch of old pregnant bitches runnin' around, that's crazy. I'm only allowed to let in 5% black people. He said that, 5%. That mean if there's 25 people here I get to let in one and a quarter black people. So I gotta hope there's a black midget in the crowd.
A timeless feast for the senses, saw it twice in college with friends. We ate ramen before watching it, but still left in the middle of the movie to go get more. It will taunt your appetite and twist your salivating imagination around its chopsticks until your craving can't hold out any longer. Hilarious and very Asian vignettes about the cultural importance of food in a Japan that's trying to westernize without losing its Nippon identity. (The beggar foodies especially reminded me of the Chinese wuxia stories.) And it's a delight to watch the sweet, understated chivalry between Goro and Tampopo.
