That particular scene gives us an understanding of Eddie’s mindset that he wants to break out of his culture and be like other westerners. Another scene that shows Eddie breaking out of the Asian stereotypes, is when his mother gives him noodles for school lunch. Eddie did not appreciate his Asian-style Noodles because his mates at school believe that his noodles were repugnant.
He always puts his family first. Eddie starting off as a good hearted, kind man helps him to acquire that tragic hero picture, and makes his fate at the end more
