Seven Samurai (1954)
Daisuke Katô: Shichiroji
Shichiroji : Manzo, don't be angry. When the dawn threatens our very lives, the weight of it makes us all a little reckless.
Kikuchiyo : What are you making?
Heihachi Hayashida : A flag.
Kikuchiyo : A flag?
Heihachi Hayashida : Something to hold up, hoist high, you know? Something to stir our fighting spirit.
[Heihachi presents his design; he has drawn six circles, one triangle, and at the bottom, the Japanese character "ta." Kikuchiyo points to the "ta"]
Kikuchiyo : What do those symbols mean?
Heihachi Hayashida : That means "rice" but it can also mean "farmer".
Kikuchiyo : What about those circles?
Heihachi Hayashida : They're us.
Kikuchiyo : What the hell? Why aren't I there? There's only six of them!
Heihachi Hayashida : The triangle is you, Sir Kikuchiyo.
Shichiroji : Good one!
