Discuss Tampopo

Maybe a really hard to remember scene; but after the guy has his rotten tooth removed, the one assistant is acting all flirty and sexy towards him, but was chocking from the stench a moment before I don't get it??

1.5 years later ... :-) I just rewatched the scene on YouTube. If I remember correctly there is the famous egg scene later, which to me conveys a feeling of eroticism and disgust at the same time. So maybe the flirty woman foreshadows the following conclusion: disgust and eroticism are sometimes close together. It’s just a guess as I’m not at all an expert of Japanese culture.
