Disclaimer - this only makes sense if:
1. You have been to/in Japan
2. You spend time with old Japanese people (including sensei)
3. You are in a strict style of Japanese arts like a Koryu art
4. You are Japanese

lol I liked the "you should show some guilt with your eyes" This is true for almost all us Asians.

And the scenes where everyone does the exact same thing... really speaks volumes about the society

and I just noticed this... when the woman is pouring for the husband he looks all angry at her haha

THAT was great!! Living over here for several years, I can relate to some of that. The end was just TOO funny! Eating the salt, that was just went TOO far. I wish I new which comedy show that came from. Anyone know?
