[Kumayama, a shady businessman, announces he has just purchased a giant monster egg that washed ashore in Japan from the fishermen who hauled it in]
Villager: It was taken from our fishing waters, so it belongs to us.
Kumayama: Here is the receipt.
Reporter Jiro Nakamura: How much did you sell it for?
Villager: 1,224,560 yen.
Reporter Jiro Nakamura: That's an odd number.
Kumayama: Don't you know it's a fair price? Wholesale chicken eggs cost eight yen apiece. I figured this giant egg would be equal to 153,820 eggs. Multiply them by eight yen.

News Photographer Junko 'Yoka' Nakanishi: You should return the egg to its rightful owner.

Kumayama: [shocked; looks at his partner] Mothra?
