Afrim, the boss of the purse factory, stares in horror at Jiff.

Jiff gently pushes Afrim to the floor, then leans down to bite Afrim’s shoulder. Jiff then stands, leans back, and screams at the ceiling while raising his hands in the air.

From behind Jiff, Slater rises to grab Jiff, but a fist attached to a long arm appears from the left side of the screen and knocks out Slater.

The camera turns, revealing Bowfinger, dressed in the same outfit as Jiff. Bowfinger screams a war cry, and Jiff does the same. They swing their arms and lock hands together.

“Good to see you again, brother!” says Bowfinger.

Daisy, still tied up behind the two men, screams.

“Kung Fu Fighting,” by Bus Stop (featuring Karl Douglas) begins playing.

Dozens of ninjas jump through the barn windows. More ninjas descend from ropes.

Bowfinger and Jiff assume exaggerated Tiger Claw fighting positions.  The ninjas take similar stances.

The two heroes wave their arms in karate chopping motions, then run toward the edge of the raised platform. Instead of jumping, Bowfinger and Jiff lower themselves to the floor of the barn like out-of-shape, middle-aged men, by carefully and slowly inching their way over the precipice.

When they finally reach the floor, they look at each other, and then turn to the ninjas in another fighting pose.

Carol, the leader of the ninjas, makes her entrance. She’s wearing a green miniskirt, thigh-high boots, a WWI German helmet, and long, red conical shapes resembling nails on her fingers. She waves her arms in a fighting stance and says, “Ching-haya-shaka-lay, suckas!”

Now standing on the purse assembly tables, Bowfinger and Jiff run toward Carol (and the camera) in a fighting stance, yelling all the way. The frame freezes at Bowfinger and Jiff jump off the table.
