[Mariko Yashida and Logan bless their food but Logan gets the word wrong. He then he places his chopsticks in his food. Mariko takes them out of the food and places them on the table]
Mariko: Chopsticks upright are a bad omen. They resemble the incense at a funeral. Nothing is without meaning.
[Logan and Mariko start to eat]
Logan: So the other night at the house, when you uh...ran out in the rain, what did mean?
Mariko: My grandfather was dying.
Logan: You knew he was gonna die, been sick for a long time.
Mariko: It wasn't his death I feared.
Logan: What then? [Mariko doesn't reply] What did he tell you that night? [Mariko still doesn't reply] Mariko, why did your father hit you?
Mariko: I was trying to warn him.
Logan: About what? What did your grandfather tell you?
Mariko: He told me... that in three days, when they read his will I will become the most powerful person in Japan. He gave it all to me.
Logan: The company?
Mariko: [nods her head] I didn't want it. He knew that. I don't understand why he gave it to me. It was all my father dreamed of.
Logan: And that's why. What about this fiancé of yours, Nostromo?
Mariko: Noburo.
Logan: Does he know about this?
Mariko: No.
Logan: Why are you marrying him? He seems like kind of an asshole.
Mariko: My father arranged it, last year.
Logan: What?
Mariko: It gives him better access to the political theater. To disobey my father would be to dishonor him. I don't expect you to understand. [Mariko takes the chopsticks, whom Logan had placed in again, out of his meal.] You are not Japanese. [eats her food]
