Uninterned banker Andrew Leiper and his wife Helen wake up to the anniversary of their engagement. Instead of celebrating, they have to go to the dentist: Helen fractured a filling on a hard object in her rice a couple of days ago, and the pain is agonising. Mr. Iishi, a civilian supervising the liquidation of the bank, arranges for an armed guard to take them to the office of a Chinese dentist trained in America. While there, they meet a polite naval officer who tells them of his reluctance to fight the British.
