    • Yamata: I think I get real silent partner. Maybe Howard Hughes.

    • Felix: How'd you get lost? Yamata: I was kamikaze pilot. I got nervous and make safe landing. Felix: Why didn't you go back? Yamata: They only gave me one-way map.

    • Yamata: (at Guadalcanal) Don't believe everything you hear. They told me I'd be making love to Betty Grable on White House lawn by Christmas.

    • Yamata: I have a takeout tray that is dynamite with the college crowd. They think it is hip to eat Nip.

    • Yamata: Mr. Unger a very fine gentleman. In Japan, he would be considered most honorable man. Oscar: Over here, he's considered a pest.
