Preposterousry Rich-rooking white-mens: It's pronounced HULL, with two "l's". Cordell Hull, Secretary of State the United States of America.
Goofy-rooking Japan-mens with thick grasses: HAI That-ah what Hata-san say Corderr Hurr.

Preposterousry Rich-rooking white-mens: No, Mister Hata, not for the lemonade. Look, Mister Hata, I'll be frank. As you have seen fit to pick a fight with the Russians, Mister Roosevelt and Mister Churchill are worried they will occupy Japan before we can and I don't imagine that will be an appealing notion for you.

Preposterousry Rich-rooking white-mens: Yes. We anticipated that but the public is very angry. After all, you stupid bastards started the whole thing. They will want blood. We have retained a private firm to negotiate reduced sentences for all but the worst offenders. As we are a capitalist country it is fee-based, of course.
Goofy-rooking Japan-mens with thick grasses: HAI! Hata-san understand. What-ah about Emperor?
Preposterousry Rich-rooking white-mens: The Emperor can stay but he can't wear shoe lifts and he has to salute the American flag on 4th of July.
Goofy-rooking Jaoan-mens with thick grasses: Hory crap! Shoe rift demand very severes but Hata-san try. Hata-san onry have one request for serf.
