* Lee was there for a case he took very, very seriously. It's possible the moment he met Carter, he almost immediately recognized what kind of police officer was welcoming him and how seriously he was being taken, himself. The first thing Lee seems to think of doing as soon as possible is to ditch the guy and meet someone more useful to meet up with; not bothering responding to Carter's "Do you speak English" tirade was just his way of flat-out not bothering with him, period... and maybe he just wanted to be a dick to him, too, as previously said.

* His scar still stung. It was bothering him.
** Or... the makeup for the scar was bothering the ''actor.''

* First thing Carter says to Lee is "please tell me you speak English", then he asks him if he speaks English in a condescending and slightly racist way. Its no wonder Lee decided to get his own back with him.

** Also, didn't Carter fail to understand a conversation in Chinese in the second movie? The one with the contact in the restaurant? "Because his mouth is open 24 hours a day."
** Carter only knows a few phrases in Chinese and can't speak it fluently. Watch the sequel, he goes to China and mangles Chinese very badly, even with a Chinese-English dictionary in his hand. As for Lee, it was obvious Carter didn't like him at all from the first time they met, so Lee decided to be a dick to him.

** The more worrying thing is that Lee is a police officer on the case. Why on Earth would he be so unprofessional to Carter as to pretend he can't speak English and thus be able to advance the case, even if Carter's being a dick to him?

* Yeah; it was just a ruse to get him away from the car. They probably had someone watching the house and hung up just as the car left. One has to wonder what would happen if he asked the car to wait for him (unlikely, since he didn't know how long he'd be on the phone, but still possible).



It's to show off the scar he got from Soo Yung's necklace. Still doesn't make sense, though.

* It's a mock "Hey, hows it going" between two old enemies. Sang and Lee know each other, and Sang is bemused that, even if he isn't allowed to just shoot him, he still has a gun to Lee's head, to the head of the detective how keeps getting in his way. He winks because he's enjoying that idea.
