He glances at the blimp passing noisily overhead repeating the same advertisement. Then he notices the counter man.
The Sushi Master, or the counter man, an old Asian gentleman invites Deckard with a smile.
Deckard approaches the noodle bar as the Sushi Master beckons him to a newly vacated seat.
SUSHI MASTER: ...shimasho-ka.
Deckard points to menu items on display and holds up four fingers. The Sushi Master confirms the order by holding up two fingers.
SUSHI MASTER: ...kimashita, kimashita. Irasshai, irasshai. Sa dozo. Nani ni shimasho-ka.
DECKARD: Give me four.
SUSHI MASTER: Futatsu de jubun desuyo. [Japanese: "Two are really enough"]
DECKARD: No, four: two, two, four.
SUSHI MASTER: Futatsu de jubun desuyo.
DECKARD: And noodles.
SUSHI MASTER: Wakatte kudasai yo. [Japanese: "Please understand."]
Deckard sits down as the counter man hands him his order. He starts to eat and that's when he feels a tap on his shoulder. He glances over his right shoulder. A huge cop in uniform is looming behind him.
COP: Hey, idi-wa.
Another man is looming over his left shoulder. The guy's got beady eyes and lots of energy. His name is Gaff.
Gaff: M'sieu, aduanon kovershim angam bitte. [French-Hungarian-German: "Sir, you will please come with me now."]
Deckard signals the counter man to come over and translate.
SUSHI MASTER: He say you under arrest, Mr. Deckard.
Deckard turns to Gaff with a disinterested look.
DECKARD: You got the wrong guy, pal.
Deckard turns back to his food.
GAFF: Lo fa, ne-ko shi-ma, de va-ja Blade... Blade Runner. [Hungarian: "Ah, don't shit me, man, you're the Blade... Blade Runner!"]
SUSHI MASTER: He say you Brade Runner.
DECKARD: Tell him I'm eating.
GAFF: Captain Bryant to ka, me ni omae yo. [Japanese: "It's Captain Bryant wants to see you, y' know!"]
DECKARD: Bryant, huh?
SUSHI MASTER: Hai!
CUT TO EXT. STREET: Deckard grabs his dinner and follows Gaff to the police spinner.
The cop shuts the spinner door behind Deckard, a video monitor in the cockpit guides Gaff for the launch.
The spinner lifts off in a flurry of rain, Deckard and Gaff take off vertically in the spinner to see Bryant.
A Spinner can be driven as a ground-based vehicle, and take off vertically, hover, and cruise using jet propulsion much like Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) aircraft. They are used extensively by the police to patrol and survey the population.
CUT TO EXT. CITY - BIRD'S EYE VIEW: The spinner zips through the canyons of the city. Deckard watches the maze of suspension bridges, platforms and catwalks swim by below.
The tops of larger buildings emblazoned with fluorescent numerals and scrawls of neon ads.
CUT TO INT. SPINNER: Deckard is sitting gloomily in the passenger seat eating his meal as Gaff maneuvers the spinner through the city canyons chattering in rapid Japanese.
