Episode Quotes
Scott: Now the colonel wasn't that kind of man, was he?
Kelly: I hope so. What kind of man is that?
Scott: The kind of man that would carry around a picture of a geisha in his bag.

Kelly: You know what I really dig about Tokyo?
Scott: What's that?
Kelly: Well, it's the largest city in the world, right? And they would roll up the sidewalks tight at 11:30. By midnight they're all asleep.
Scott: Well, you know, a Japanese poet described it very well a long time ago.
Kelly: Yeah?
Scott: Yep. He said, "The butterfly sleeps on the temple bell."
Kelly: That's it.
