Dr. Coates:
[to a freshly-beaten Gordon] Ah. Looks like you didn't bow. Always bow before a guard, Korean or Jap. And *never* look 'em in the eyes when they pass you: that's pure defiance. Always look away. Rules of Bushido.



Lt. Jim Reardon:
Bushido?



Dr. Coates:
Yeah. Their kind of chivalry. Respect and obligation. If you don't respect them, they feel obligated to beat you. Nothing personal.



Ernest Gordon:
Well, it sure as bloody hell feels personal.



Dr. Coates:
Yeah, well, it works both ways. They do the same to their own.



Lt. Jim Reardon:
Now there's a comfort.
