On the way home from the party, Mr. Satrapi is pulled over by a soldier who makes him get out of the car. The soldier verbally assaults him and accuses him of drinking alcohol. Marjane’s mother begs that the soldier have mercy on him. The soldier follows them home to search the house. Marjane’s father tells her that she and her grandmother must run upstairs and he will delay the soldier. They are to pour all of the alcohol in the house down the drain. When they reach home, Marjane’s grandmother gains the soldier’s sympathy by telling him she has diabetes. She runs upstairs and pours all the alcohol out. Marjane’s father comes upstairs, furious, and tells them that all the soldier wanted was a bribe. He is exasperated and wishes he could have a drink to calm down, but all the alcohol has been thrown away.
