A Day for Remembrance


SHUKICHI
It's very good.

. . .

SHUKICHI
Did Shoji like to drink?

NORIKO
Yes, he did.

TOMI (looking surprised)
Really?

NORIKO
He often brought his friends home here late, after the trains had stopped. After they'd been out drinking.

SHUKICHI
Really?

TOMI
Then you had as much trouble as I did.

NORIKO (smiles)
Yes, but now I miss it.
