Da gong kuang xian qu (1989) - full transcript
Three colleagues (Carol Cheng, Joey Wong, Sandy Lam) at a Hong Kong corporation put in overtime at the office one night and stumbled upon a bag filled with 10 million dollars in cash. Ecstatic with their wealthy find, they took the money and began to concoct a safe plan to spend it. However, when the friends discover that their company's senior manager was blackmailed and the money left behind to pay out the blackmailer was reported missing, the friends fear that they might be reprimanded for finding and taking the cash.
Don't you know you've done the
Company an injustice?
You're 10 minutes late
Miss Wu, you're half right half wrong
What do you mean?
Do you mean your upper half are late
and lower half are not
or your left half are late
and right half are not?
You three have been late 17 days in a month
You're averagely 10 minutes late every day,
considering that your average wage is $5,0007?
You are always late
Do you know how much the Company has lost
Should be $211.05
Miss, you're a Cashier, you know better
I have a pay rise only from the middle
of this month
Averagely the sum of wages of us
is less than $5,000
I was 3 days late before the 15th.
The average rate is $3.60
so it should be $200
I won't care to reckon with you now
Anyway, it's wrong of you
to enter the office before 9 o'clock
Why are you late again?
In fact, I told them many times already
Miss Wu, you shouldn't I concern yourself
with such trifles
Leave it to me to handle it
Miss Wu, I clocked in only a bit late
It's nice of you to know it
And you, you always bring back
comic books to read.
Don't think I didn't know it
How dare you say you're only a bit late?
You're again half right half wrong
Angie reads only during lunch intervals...
You're making me mad.
Anyway, with such wages
You're sold to the company all 8 hours daily
Am I interrupting you?
You got into the lift
when it was so crammed
Sometimes I had to wait for over
half an hour for the lift
I want to consult you on something
You go out to work
Tell Kitty to type this 24 copies.
I need it for the meeting day after tomorrow
Miss Wu wants you to type it in 24 copies
They're required for the morning
after tomorrow. Look at it!
Miss Wu, this is Kitty.
I just got a proposal
and I'm not sure if I could make it
day after tomorrow
You know I'm terribly busy
I've to charge O.T. if I get no help
I see. Aren't you afraid
it can't be kept confidential?
Good, I'll have Angie type it
Damn, I got caught by Wu Tse-tien again today
I confronted her so much, she might fire me
If I got fired this time,
it's be the 13th
I've been out for work for less than 3 years
I can't type or do steno with fluent English
I thought this money-counting job
would be suitable for me
If I should lost it too
Man might say I'm good for nothing
What has it to do with Man?
But what? We're not getting fired
Who's got fired?
What can you do for me?
We were not late this morning,
but we got a heck from Wu
because I failed to cram into the lift
It would be unfair if we got fired as a result
You're half right half wrong
Working outside is not always worthwhile
Uncle Hsiu, you're in the same boat
I'm not a redundant. We both are caged birds
to be seen by others
Today's my first day.
Let me make the introduction
This is Candy
he's the New Security Manager Albert
What a coincidence
I'm sorry about what happened.
Is your car alright?
I crashed his car accidentally this morning
and got a heck from Candy
It was Becky that you hit, It's me, not her
I won't talk with you now
Uncle Hsiu, please take him away
Albert, let's go over there.
He was furious because he got cursed
He damaged your car.
Why don't you ask him for compensation?
Nonsense, my car was in poor condition
It's due for inspection next month.
I can't afford to have it repaired
Without a car, it saves money and trouble
But you get more trouble
fighting into buses
and MTR packed like sardines
And those lousy men
took advantage once I got in
Luckily you're tall
Those men sweat like hell in summer
I feel like nauseating
once they raise their hands
And some "Milanos" are cheap
They read porno papers with pants unzipped
It really is nauseating
Right, it's better to drive your own car to work
You won't get crammed nor meet these lousy men
But it's costly to maintain a car
Never. My dad's car is gas-saving
I get a free car-park at my residence too
The car-park in the office is free too
How could it be costly?
Didn't you say you'd let a room to others?
I've thought it over. It's not too good
Living with a good friend may spoil our friendship
And it's inconvenient to let it to a bachelor
Besides, mine is a government flat
I might get evicted
if the truth was known
In this case,
I've to return to Canada to join my dad
You really are a nuisance
Wu Tse-tien's incorrigible. I really can't stand it
Maybe she endured too much
when she was a student
She enjoys dictating things to others
Hi, why are you taking so long doing it?
Why are you so slow? Washed away?
No, no tissue
I really admire boys.
They just finish and shake it
What are you talking about? Well
Did the teacher in your Commercial School
teach you typing?
Hey, why are you so late?
Are you still mad at that?
Well, it's not that Chi Mao-ying
Mao, good, good
- Hey, there's no water
- Use this
He's given everything to you to do
Nine o'clock sharp day after tomorrow, right?
Why do we always get bullied?
You can quit
if only you get a windfall
or go job-hopping
I'll say the same thing too...
Angie, there's a chicken feather in your lip
Here. Let me flush it for you
Have you watch TV last night?
No, I haven't seen it
as Lo Hoi Pang hasn't show up
Yes, it isn't funny anymore
We haven't played mahjong for a long time
Yes, we can't find partners
Maybe we can go the Macau next month
after receiving the salary
Great! Go for gambling
I won't join you guys
The ticket are so expensive
You girls are really saving
How's the weather these days?
It's been raining here
but Toronto is better. And don't forget
Don't pile up used clothing, it gets stunk
And boil some soup yourself,
don't always eat Instant Noodles
Take Cup Noodles then
Hey, give my regards to Billy
I give you my regards
Sister, I'm entering University next month
Hi, hi, hi, let me tell you a secret
I've made a boyfriend Andrew
He's nice to me, but he's a foreigner
Let me talk. Hey, have you got an admirer?
This Uncle 3" s nephew is nice
Let's talk again tonight
Don't spill it all over
or I'll hit you
What good is it in going?
If I won a Mark 6 lottery
I'd change for a flat
with 3 bed rooms and 2 living rooms
I'll wall-paper it beautifully.
This sofa has to be changed
The whole flat will be carpeted
The TV set has to be replaced for a 32" one
It must have laser and surround sound
And your room
will be fitted with TV set
and VTR too
It should be smaller
because you only have a dog with you
But I'll hire a Filipino maid to serve us both
Time is up
Turn it on
Hey, don't turn it off, just wait
42, oh, I'm rich!
Take the noodles first
If your work there very hard?
I'll earn more so we can live more comfortably
What did you say?
May, don't eat noodles. It's time for dinner soon
Dad, I'm talking. Don't interrupt
Who is it?
Dad, he asked me when you'd take me
Okay, okay, it won't be long
Don't talk so long. It's expensive. That's all
Hello, Hello, hello
Don't eat noodles. It's mealtime soon
Old man, don't smoke, it's mealtime soon
What has smoking to do with eating?
What has eating noodles to do with the meal?
Don't talk nonsense
Hey, Becky, what happened? Nothing
Have you called Candy?
Well, let me call her.
She'll be happy for sure. Bye
Hey, where's my belt?
Where have you put it?
Hey, hey, it's terrific
Well, you decide. Okay, bye-bye!
Hey, Man, Man, I've won it
What? Got a stroke?
I won the Mark 6 lottery
You did? How much is the dividend this time?
Only a consolation prize
It's not a real win then.
If you do, you need no consolation
If I win more often, I need no more consolat
If I won the 1st prize with over $1 million,
it's be terrific
What if you really win?
If I really win?
Splendid, I've already had my plans
I quit my job and you quit yours
We both go honeymooning
Then we both emigrate to Canada, okay?
Then you bring me a baby in Canada,
preferably a boy
Then I'll bring my mom to Canada too
You stay in Canada to take care of
the baby and my mom
Then I fly back to HK to earn more money
then return to Canada to join my mom
What about me?
Calm down. You said you were only dreaming
Why take it seriously?
If I really won Mark 6, I'd desert you
I'm only joking
See who's calling me
Chi called me
to go to play snooker
You only have your fine-weather friends in min
I'll pick you up tomorrow night
and we'll dine together
Okay, bye-bye. Stop dreaming
Going out again?
Well, don't ever come back
What are you up to again?
You promised to pick me up. You always lie
Forget it. We'll get our pay today
Let's go out to eat
That night, Man and I talked about emigration
I was really excited
but he wanted to bring his mom there too
leaving me behind to take care of the child
Don't ever commit yourself
Why have I returned?
It was stormy when I got there last year
I didn't go out the whole week, I didn't eat well
I don't know much English
and can't understand what's on TV
I did all I could to convince dad
to let me come back
If he prefers to emigrate, let him do it.
I must stay in Hong Kong anyway
I want to get some petty cash
Fill in this Form first
Well, is your car alright?
Yes, my car is shock-proof
What about yours?
It was only an accident. I was rushing to work
Let me buy you Lunch to say "sorry"
Okay. Have you filled it?
Let me think it over first
Okay, see you later
Hey, are you going fishing
Okay, but I must consult my wife first
I hate men fishing.
They sit moping at the pier for nothing
Crazy, I'm not going
Hey, it's not much money. Have you got it?
I've got it here
Mind you down business
Miss, the Form has been changed
since last month
Are you not informed?
Catherine upstairs gave me that
I know nothing about the
General Affairs Department business
Catherine has been here for more than a month
But you've been here for over a year
Listen, do it again
Let me have it at 5 o'clock sharp!
I want to set something straight
Come in with me. I want to talk to you
She really are a nuisance
...want to have dinner with you
I'm not going
Frankly, when I was a student
I excelled in football, swimming,
mountain-climbing and parachuting
Isn't that a bluff?
Strangely, I was a poor driver
I failed up to 8 exams
That's not strange
Many people in HK won after many flops
that foreign examiner got fed up
He insisted on giving me a licence
on the 2nd exam
I turned it down and insisted on wining it myself
No wonder many want to apply for
driving licences abroad
Don't make fun of me
I hit you because I'm a bad driver
You're half right and half wrong
I rushed to work that morning
and took breakfast in the car
Otherwise, you wouldn't have hit me so easily
That's true too
Wouldn't it be wonderful
if Kitty and Wu were fired?
You're okay. Uncle Hsiu's nice to you
Hey, let's have supper tonight,
then see a show. Okay?
Isn't that too expensive?
Don't be miserly. You've just got your pay today
Okay. Hello, hello...
This kind of tissue sells for $3.50
in a supermarket
Our special price is $3.20, 10% off for staff
It's 80% cheaper each box, or $ 8 for 10 boxes
Aren't you going, to cram back to Sharin
With so many bags of items?
Let's change the subject
I want to grow my hair long, okay?
I always said OK to you many times
What do yodu want to eat?
Mandarin, you go on
One Shanghai fried noodles, coarse, please!
One sour soup, hotter, One portion of buns
Since when have you spoken
I'm a Shanghaiese, but I can't speak the dialect
I want to woo Man's mom
Oh, no, Man
Well, did someone ask you to dinner tonight
That must have been over 10 years ago
Go out and verify it
I have at least 3 appointments each day
Only if I nod my head
those men will form a long queue
I didn't know. You didn't tell me
Angie's working overtime
I'm accompanying her in office
There's food in the fridge
Hey, what's your rating of him?
Rating? Albert's got no marks
Look at his head
and you know he's headless
His long hands nearly touch the ground
No wonder he flopped in over 10 driving tests
What has he got in his face?
Looks like bullet holes
Enough. You said he's worthless
Can't you order yourself?
I ordered each time and you ate only
I won't return, I won't return anymore
Don't get excited. Quarrel again?
Why do I cook and wash every time?
And I've to serve his friends too
I told you not to cohabit with him
He's taking you for his wife and amah
He said cohabitation is the vogue overseas
And wife-swapping is popular too
Sooner or later you'll be swapped
So I insist on being single
I've to take care of myself, but I get freedom
People used to say
"Love is valuable
and freedom is more so
There's much wisdom in it
Oh, bad, I still I have something to do
I've to hand it over to Wu Tse-tien tomorrow
I had hunch earlier
I told Man we were working overtime with you
Never mind, let's not go to see a movie
We'll stay to help you finish it. Okay?
No problem. Anyway, I don't want to go home
to see that creep
That's a deal
I hear that you're going to the country
to take a wife
I went back several times a year. You know it
What do you do? An OK Shop on,
Life is hard
Have you eaten?
Yes, thank you
You girls are really trivial
Just give you a touch
To see whether it is real or not?
Of course it's real
You muscles are weak. You need more exercise
Hurry up and you can see the 9:30 show on time
Hey, I want to grow my hair long
You want to imitate me?
You can do it
Don't ever do it, you'll regret
Work, 24 copies each
What's this? Are you playing Millionaire?
No, it's real
How come there's so much money here?
Must be dirty money
Guess how much it is?
It mean's "flying a kite with foot hair"
We must take chances
This must be dirty money
Why take the goods lift?
It's not so crammed
You're office workers
This way, please. No need to follow the queue
I'm really happy today
Nobody sees us
How do we use the money?
You like shopping best
Don't worry. Smile, smile
We've got a bargain today
Stay calm. Smile... Don't look at them
I really am scared
Keep calm. Hold it. Get going
Guess how much money there is here?
Let me count it for you, I'm expert in that
Hey, not so loud!
The whole Hong Kong can hear your voice!
The odd balance is yours
because you saw it first
Holt it, could it be counterfeit notes?
Don't scare me, I count over a million each day
I note whether it's a real or counterfeit
by touching it only
Why was such a big bag of money
put in the street? Could it...
Could the Company be selling heroin?
Isn't that dangerous?
We might be chopped to pieces
or be spilt with acid
You're half right, half wrong
What if the Company really sells heroin?
Nobody has seen us. If we don't expose it
Who'd chop us?
Well, could it be...
Could the big boss be kidnapped?
We would ruin things accidentally then
This must be the ransom
We still saw him in office safe and sound today
Besides, the ransom is normally delivered
through the telephone booth
in the suburbs or in a warehouse,
not in the office
Could it be...
Please be more optimistic,
maybe the big boss will lose
a amount of money,
or maybe he wants to tip us
for the decor
Or he wants to subsidize you for a trip
to Canada to see your boyfriend
Or he wants to compensate you for your thrift
No more nonsense.
Anyway, let's keep calm
and take things as they come
Let's spend it as our own
I've never seen so much money all my life
Hold it, we mustn't spend it
We all read in novels about that
We must attend office as usual
as if nothing has happened
When can we spend it them?
We'll set one month as the deadline
Whether or not to spend in then. Agreed?
Besides, this is only between us three
Don't ever tell others
Not even to Man?
Of course, or he may tell his mom
and his mom may tell her neighbours,
then the whole world knows it
Maybe let's go abroad
No, or people may suspect it
How are we going to hide so much money then?
I have an idea
Well, haven't you gone too far?
You use it to store
Martial Arts novels, don't you?
What do you mean?
My dad's former projector
for storing blue movies and magazines
Put it here then
My mom couldn't find it for half a century
Let's all sit down
To set your mind at ease, you two move in
We'll have custody of the money together
Tomorrow morning we'll each buy a lock
to lock it
Okay. Anything happens, we'll escape together
I'm afraid Man may object
It's serious business, not act of separation
Right, it'll do you good to make him jealous
A small parting is better than a new wedding
And you can test out his sincerity too
Right, let's hide the money first
traveling, candle dinner
We can say anything
But coming to the club
girls are easy to handle
By giving her some advantage
she'd do anything you dictate her to
Are you really doing what you said?
Your wife's still not back
Could she keep a beau outside?
You can't trust women these days
So much the better.
I could save separation fees
Don't be so cocky
Little Chan in our office eloped
with a shampoo boy this way
Take care if she comes back to move things
So much the better. You know
my girlfriends line up from Tsimshatsui
Carol, Maggie, Do-do and Susan kept
calling me and I haven't answered it yet
A bevy of girls wait to be picked up by me
Maggie and Carol? Are you sure?
Don't you believe it?
Ask them yourself tomorrow
I'm keeping several boxes of love letters
at my mom's home
without time to read them
Hi, Angie, Becky, so you're here
Hi, Candy who appeared on the TV
and just now
She looks like you in expression
Well, let's chat later
What are you doing? Going for a tour?
What are you doing?
I'm moving in to join Becky for some time
Is it true?
What did you say just now?
I was only exaggerating
My friend is here
Hey, go quickly
Candy, don't go
Come back early. I won't beg you
Who wants you to do that?
Play mahjong with your fine-weather friends
Candy, go then, don't ever come back
Go on with playing
Girls are like clothing. Play, play
Well, today's the first
Don't come back for the whole month
Don't! You can see him freely
but don't tell that to him.
One month's a short period
Let's take some money to spend, okay?
I've never slept on such an expensive bed
Now I feel most comfortable
Money means much.
We don't have to work to get a heck
Right. I'm busy but they can't help me
I really can't endure it any more
You're wasting much of the company money,
What? I'll quit. Don't be cocky
What? You want to quit?
Yes, I'm rich now,
I won't get heck from you anymore
Go to hell! Go to hell, Chicken Ying...
Hey, what are you trying to find out?
Guess if the money has codes?
Anyway, we must probe this case
Test Albert out
when you see him tomorrow
See if you can find out anything
from the young boss,
What about me?
You do the laundry and cook
Do the laundry and cook!
It's late. Keep the money and let's go to bed
You take my sister's former room,
you take my former room
Me sleeping alone? I'm afraid of darkness
Just keep the door open
Give me some money
to put into the doll
and I'll hold it in bed
You are a nuisance
It's alright, but don't spend the money
Hey, don't wake up others
Angie and Candy are already in bed
and I'll give you VTR, TV and a room
Now I've got them
and I can find a Filipino maid to serve me
Angie, still not in bed?
Go to sleep
Damn, I'm too excited to sleep
Why are you yelling?
You scared me. Sleep!
Come with me to get back some money
I didn't take away your money!
What? Go to the Account Dept
to get me back some money
Hey, don't go
What were you doing just now?
I was working
Do you want to date me?
You mean that last call?
Are you afraid? I'll wait downstairs
after work tonight
Don't keep cool and see the environment
I'm damn scared!
Not so hard, it hurts
I have a cold.
Why are you so timid?
I want to get back some money
The petty cash I applied for yesterday
Petty cash? Why didn't you say so?
Uncle Hsiu, out fishing tonight?
Tonight? Sorry, not tonight
I must go back with my wife to her home to eat
What about tomorrow?
Albert, you go fishing tonight?
I like fishing too
Did you notice something wrong
with the company?
Yes, it has lost much money
You don't know it?
The Company vied with the Japs
for the Hokkaide Oilfield work
but others have taken half of the business
So the stocks have dropped and the boss in mad
In fact, the Tangs can monopolize the business
Right, I really don't understand
Hey, the big boss
Impossible. The Company...
Oh, a miss
Well, my grandpa is not that cruel
He was bandit chief but was beaten
because he was not wicked enough
However, he's horrible when he's in a huff
The temperature may go up with a radius of 2 km
Are you serious?
No, I made an experiment
and took the temperature
What would he react if
he got cheated out of his money
I don't know
My mom said someone stole his
favorite Buddhist figure
Has it been found?
Yes, but the maid is missing
I'd rather believe it
Don't ask me. I shouldn't have told you
We've known each other for so long
I promised not to reveal this
I see. Who? Speak up
You said you promised someone that just now
I'll ask someone else
I promised Angie and Becky
Angie and Becky?
I don't believe it
Never mind. You'll know in 2 weeks
Well, I'll give you 2 weeks
I knew it already
You want to test him out in 2 weeks
If it doesn't work,
then you'll come back
to me. Right?
That's not fair
What? You really are impossible
Well, I was bad to you normally.
I curse you
and played mahjong and snooker
when I was free
I failed my promise to pick you up too
But you can't desert me for that
and I'll change, really change
That's not the reason, you don't understand
But it's not bad for you to change
You're going to move back to join me then?
No, give me two weeks time
It takes time for you to change
Is there no room for maneuvering?
Okay, two weeks
Listen, don't let others advantage of you
It's really hard for me to save money
Let's go. Don't worry
Buy whatever you like
Buy also the things you dislike
Really? It's really expensive
- It's rather cheap.
- Buy it
Let's go to eat roasted pork bud
I want to see movie
You've scared me
Buy it, no matter it's expensive or not
We gonna buy now
Buy it if you like
Stop your conversation, I'm waiting for a call
Who took my lipstick?
I have said that you needn't be scared.
It's your turn to wash the dishes today.
Everthing's normal here. What about your
It's all quiet here
It smells good
Look, am I beautiful in it?
Of course, it's so expensive
Forget it. People wear beautiful dresses
when going out
but I wear them only at home
That's really unfair
No way. We're black market rich ladies
Let's take the money and spend it
My money almost has spend
There's only a few hundred left in my bank A/C
I've already waited so long.
It should be safe now
Let's spend it or not...
No, I have many outstanding bills too
We can't spend a cent of the money
till we find out its origin
It would be fatal if people discovered it
Don't worry too much.
I have no more money in my bank
I already said "no"
People may suspect us when we spend it
They may think we stole it
We may get jailed for not reporting it
I saw Albert whispering to a group of men
Wonder what they were discussing
Man may desert me if I don't tell him now
Well, wait one week more, that's a deal
You agree on anything
Well, you win by a majority vote
Well, let's drink champagne
Wonder how Man's doing without me
You're asking for trouble.
He's not worthy of you
He plays ball Monday, poker Tuesday
goes night horse-racing Wednesday,
plays mahjong Thursday
sappears Friday, goes horse-racing Saturday
Ho goes out with you Sunday,
but with his mom too
Thank you very much indeed
Sometimes he does care for me
Everything is predestined. Don't worry
Even if you get hold of him,
he may slip away too
Well, you alone are special
I've worked the whole night for nothing
Well, let's get some old stuff to see
This woman is disgusting
Why has this man powered himself?
Thank you for coming
Thank you. Bye-bye
What's on your mind?
That blue movie you saw last night?
Dreaming of Hawaiian beach
in a week's time
Uncle Hsiu wants you to go in
What's it? Let's go together
Go in and the ICAC will interrogate you
like a prisoner
Come in and sit down
I understand, Mr. Hu, I'll make a thorough probe
I'll call you
once I'm finished here
Let me introduce:
Candy, Becky, Mr. Lam of ICAC
We've come to see the functions
of each department
and if there is any loophole of corruption
No, no corruption
We're not suspecting anyone
We only want to get acquainted with
They're the Company's cashiers,
I only act according to normal procedures
Could another department head ask you
No, we don't pay without Hsiu's signature
What about collection?
Does all cash pass through you?
No, we don't collect freely
Well, we don't collect or pay without bills
If someone comes to pay without bills
we won't collect without lettering him
sign the bill
We don't pay without receiving the bill
Each bill is paid after
the amount has been confirmed with
We issue the bill
with another signature by Hsiu
We collect and pay against bills only
Hey, Albert, you're here too?
What's up? Are they collecting hush money?
I was joking
Don't scare them, they're timid
I won't, it's only for fun
You may leave. Thank you
This time it's "Abbot's handkerchief"
What does that mean?
We're finished for sure
They came to get info only.
Don't worry too much
Don't worry too much
You're calm because you were not interrogated
I've never been scared all my life
When the ICAC men were here
the air-conditioning was much colder
Judging from the fact that
they questioned you 2 only
they must be suspecting us
Right, luckily we were calm
According to my analysis
if they suspect you and
have proof against you
they wouldn't question you
If they suspect you and
have no proof against you
they wouldn't question you
to arouse your attention
If they do not suspect you and
have no proof against you
they won't arrest you
This is my logic
Do you understand what she said?
It means: Don't worry too much
Keep checking how much they know
Dad, you must help me this time
You know how much is that gold mine worth?
Tell him how much it's worth
Around $8,000 million
You collected $200 million from that Jap
and you gave him half of your shareholding!
Dad, it was my fault. Auntie!
You know? I was sweared by Chiu Sir today.
I had to leave before that ball game was over
Dad, it was my fault
but you must help me, or I'll be in jail,
you get jailed, and I lose face.
I won't let you get jailed for that
I'll confess it for you to ICAC
I'll say I authorized you to collect the money
As to yourself, go as far away as possible
Sinking to grow honey dews or
Hainan to chop bamboos, it's up to you
What about Auntie?
Dad, give me another chance
Me to forgive you to allow to perpetuate again?
Bring back $20 million then
Dad, I only have $19 million now
Who put the blame on you
or did you do it yourself?
Dad, believe me, I'm speaking the truth
Who know that you collected the money
from the Jap?
Only a friend
I'm the more outraged then
Why didn't you tell me that?
Call Police Supt Chen.
I want to talk to him
Grandpa, that's unfair to Uncle
We do business open and aboveboard
but you the young generation has ruined us
Albert, call him now
Mr. Chan, you know what's been going on
Get out that spy as quickly as possible please
I saw that night's hit book
The signature was unclear because many passed
What about the watchman?
Watchman Ta is away in Sinkiang
for a honeymoon
Take him to see me when he returns
and I'll have him identified
The money is of secondary importance
It's crucial to get that suspect
I've already brought those
department managers concerned
Go and meet them
It's our duty to catch the thugs
and get the money
We'll do our best
but whether there's the sum of $10 million
and the blackmail remain a riddle
What did you say?
I can sue you for damaging my reputation.
Who's your boss?
Mr. Chen, this is our family affair
I don't want to make it known,
You know what I mean?
Don't worry, we won't disclose it to the public
Police Supt Chen.
who worked OT that might
something unpleasant has happened
involving an extortion case
You were on the spot that night
so I want your presence
I must take him to jail by every means
Let me know if you go,
I'll see you off at the airport
Mr. Chen, did your security system
record the looks of the suspects
when the incident occurred?
If we had the records,
we wouldn't need your help
We can arrest them ourselves
Are you having a party now?
Yes, but it was destroyed.
The photos are unclear
That's the crux
We need these for powerful proof
Never mind, that cassette can be reinstated
Now let's see the first vision
The vision you've seen shows 3 suspects
then the second vision
This is another vision.
There's only 1 man on it
We believe that man there
is the bandit that night
You must be one of them
When do you think, Mr. Chen?
A computer in Scotland Yard could
turn the vision into digits
rearrange them and bring back the vision
We may take the cassette to Scotland Yard
But this may take 2-3 months time
Our computer has this device too
I'm sure we can reinstate the vision in 3 days
Okay. I'll put some men to watch it
day and night
There seems something wrong
with the security system here
Bang, bang. If your mom goes away
she can't take care of you anymore
Who didn't turn off the light
after using the toilet?
Damn, I'm damn scared
I never had any sleepless night before
Don't worry, it's going to be alright
Yes, it's alright
Nobody knows we did it. I'm not afraid
Why can't you sleep?
We didn't rob or blackmail
We picked the money on the ground only
No one wants to arrest you
My dad used to say:
HK is thrives because everyone's greedy
We're now only doing our duty
My dad worked like a slave all his life
He didn't even buy lotteries
He lived in a government low-cost flat
Right. If we were not rich
How we can have beautiful dresses?
We wouldn't have got Laser Disc?
Don't worry, it's going to be alright
Don't you know that?
If you did, you'd be rich
Whom are you betting on?
$50,000 each on Mr. Li and Mr. Chen
Ask the computer Wonderman when you see him
It's best to check the computer room
It's not easy to get in. You go
Why hurry? Going to bet?
Don't bet too big!
What's going on?
Thank you, Mr. Tang.
Hope we can see something on the screen soon
I hope so too
I'll take you to Albert now, okay?
No need. I know what to do
I'll call him first. Thank you!
Don't mention it. Sorry I can't help you
Miss, Miss, can I use your phone?
Hello, Albert? This is Bowie
I'm with the Security Guard.
We want you to identify someone
I'll wait for you outside the Cashier's office
Uncle Hsiu, excuse me
Oh, why is no one betting on me?
What a shame
Hi, wait for me
Hey, Becky? The security guard's coming up
to identify people
You go first
Put on your shoes
- Damn, damn, what's now?
- What's now?
The police are coming to identify people
We can't stay here. They may see us
The best way is to run! Run quickly!
The money was put in this position
She was here just now. Let me look for her
Hi, have you seen Angie?
Just now I saw her
entering the Copying Room to copy
Hey, they can't see us, let's go!
Tat, You look around to identify people
Hey, wait, please!
I'm busy. I'll talk to you in a minute
Why shout? Grunting in bed?
They're coming for us
All your fault.
I told you to keep calm always
What? You shouted too
I followed you only
I didn't shout first. Who shouted first?
Not me, I followed you too
Don't get mad
You took us to take that lift
We met these men and almost got exposed
Not my fault. Angie took this course always
Would we follow her too if she told us
to follow a dark path?
Since when have I should you a dark path?
I only said "if"
Right. Well, if you didn't call me
I needn't have to run so soon
Right, that mainlander couldn't identify us
I'm trying to help you. You're heartless
How did I know he didn't recognize us?
Well, I won't talk to you now
Everything would be fine if you kept quiet
I'm unlucky to have talked to you
Hello, call Candy, won't you?
What did you say?
Say to the mirror
Did Candy want to see me on something?
No idea. Maybe she wants to know your plans
I don't know either
Tell her to clean up and be ready for the jail
So serious? There's no proof against us
You never can tell. There's no point in waiting
Have you been followed?
I didn't know she would talk freely
You scared me
It's you who scared me.
Why say it in the Toilet?
Don't move. Look closely
Now all we must do is to unite
to overcome difficulties
Rack your brains
Let's all rack our brains
I have an idea
Go and steal the tape
Everything will be alright then
We can't, there are police around every day
Maybe it's not so tight in the daytime
Mark is nice to me
Maybe I stand a chance!
Yes, let's try
Okay, stay calm,
don't shout. Understand?
Hey, did you look for me just now?
That's called diplomacy
Well, let's be friends. Let's go
Police. Are you going to steal or not?
Miss, is it alright?
Yes. Please pick it up for me
Don't turn, you may fall
Don't mention it
Come in. Be quick
Hi, we're just passing by
Mind if they look around?
No. Please sit down
Please sit down. No, please stand
He seems to be watching video.
What's he watching? Freeze Frame?
The blue tape rerun once and again
Let me see
So it's hidden so secretly
Angie, he likes blue tapes
this is the Company's security videotape
It's cute. Can it be turned on?
Yes, I want to know too
The vision you see now is that tape
The whole program is fed into the computer
and the computer analyzes it into digits
The digits turn into vision again
I really don't understand this principle
This is the computer known digital science
But my computer is more complex
It can reevaluate the digits
and turn them back into vision
No, I didn't touch it
I just pushed these two buttons
You pushed the hidden-camera button.
Now it's beaming you
Don't push haphazardly, silly girl
You can't see anything if it breaks down
Now the whole program
is fed into the computer
I can't even be erased. Next time, be careful
It's alright now. We're going
Hey, hey, why don't you stand a bit longer?
You nearly scared me to death
Oh, I forgot to ask him when it will appear
I'll go and ask him now
Are you out of your mind?
Well, let's scatter to check tonight
What's my mission?
You go home
Do you want it or not?
I had wanted to date you out
I want to have a heart-to-heart talk with you
Sometimes if you don't say it
it is understood
Yes. I'm a straightforward person
But after being a Security Manager, I'm alert
I understand many things
but something's out of control
Let it take the natural course then
You think it's not fast enough?
I'm scared and don't know how to end it
What? Take it, when ripe
You really are reliable
You want a share too?
To share with others?
You want the whole of it?
Yes, but I must consult them first
Consult your parents first
We've only just started. Can't we wait?
Stared? You know what you're saying?
When I crashed your car and got scolded by you
I fell in love with you already
Uncle Hsiu always praised you in my presence
I trembled at the sight of you
Oh, you really are romantic
Hey, when will that thing be reinstated?
When I got that videocassette from Security
the vision was mostly destroyed
I tried to bring it back then
In fact, you won't understand what I say
But according to my estimate
it may appear in 15 hours
Bad, I don't want to get jailed
Never mind, never mind
Let's change the subject
Who could be the hero in the cassette?
Why? Did you bet heavily?
No. I didn't
But Candy betted much
I don't know it myself. It will appear tomorrow
Yes, I think many would be excited
What about us?
Well, what'd happen to those in the cassette?
If proof is against them
they may get 8-9 years
then they'll come out after 1997
They'll lose their freedom all their life then
You may put it this way
Isn't that too bad?
Who are you looking for?
Man Lee. Who are you?
Oh, Li was moved out
Hey, Where are you?
Hello, Peter, it's me
Why are you calling me so early?
I'll come to see you tomorrow
It's urgent. I'll come tomorrow
I must tell you now
I'm already married
I already said nervousness may spoil it
but you need additional lessons
when you're free
It's alright now. Retire early
I'm afraid many may not have a
peaceful sleep tonight
Right, I can't sleep too
Don't be nervous. Win or loss is common
I know that to hope is normal
Well, I must get out now
You drive carefully too
Where's that bitch?
What shall we do now?
Albert told me just now they never doubt us
They insisted that the blackmailer
has taken the money
But he said even blackmailer may get 10 years
We didn't blackmail
No way. If the cassette should
show us and the money
no amount of water can cleanse us
You're half right half wrong
Enough. We'll get jailed soon
We can't get jailed half-half, maniac!
Don't get excited. I'm not serious
I didn't ruin you
In fact, you're unlucky, you kicked the money
You had a hand too
You made so many suggestions
You wanted us to move in.
In face you wanted our company
Who wants your company?
You stained my flat
You littered your underwear
Your hair clogged the bathroom each time
Sorry, it was your dog's hair.
Don't frame me
You're making me mad
You've made a mess of everything
I didn't care about your dog
He was scabby,
so I clipped if for him
Thanks for nothing
Don't ever touch my things from now on
Quiet! What a nuisance!
You're more of a nuisance
You always shout for nothing.
You're good for nothing
Well, keep quiet
You say I'm good for nothing?
I did all the household chores
What did you do?
You never kept your mouth shut
Quiet now, we'll all get caught tomorrow
Don't fight now
Now Peter won't care for me anymore
Why do I need the money?
He's already married!
Let's find a way out
I thought I could go with him to Canada
and live happily together
What good is money?
I share your view too. With the money
I've lost Man and getting caught now
How shall we dispose of the money then?
Are we to dump it into the street?
We'll get caught and lose our jobs tomorrow
Try something now. Hurry up!
Let's put the money back in the original position
Right, let's do it
and pretend nothing has happened
No way. If someone picks it, we're finished too
Put it into the big boss's room then
His room is locked
We're not to do it now
Let's put it during lunch interval tomorrow
when there's no one around
What if the videotape should show us?
We were working overtime
We must vow to deny everything
Now the money will be intact there tomorrow
They should forgive us out of humanity
Hey, what time is it now?
29 minutes past eleven o'clock
Time's not up yet. Be patient
Why are you scared?
Don't be nervous
There's still an hour. Rushing to lose money?
There may be more stakes
Uncle Hsiu, the vision will appear in minutes.
Will you go? If not, I go first.
Well, I'll come down right away. Don't go away
I want everybody to go to the Computer Room
Let's march early
Don't ever touch them to leave fingerprints
Hurry up. No one around
Can't be opened. What now?
Try the Manager's office
Okay. It makes no difference
Well, where to put it?
Over here. Not too good
No, not too good
In the cabinet
Close the door. Don't regret
I always said my room is much more comfortable
Why so many men standing down there?
Please, please. Please sit down, dad
Make yourself at home. Please, please
Sit down, everybody
Want anything to drink?
Shall we uncork a champagne?
Connect it. Thank you!
The three should be the overtime workers
I checked and find that many came here
that night to check the inventory.
They're not suspicious
- Let's bring the money back
The other vision can be seen right away
So it's you!
As I told you
We won't lose
So it's you brat. You blackmailed me
and brought me all the trouble
Superintendent Chen, arrest him
Granduncle, I'm doing you an injustice
but I was seized by a mad desire to
cope with this rascal
And I didn't take the money
Who the hell has taken it then?
I didn't take the money
Granduncle, I didn't!
You're pointing an accusing finger on others.
- Come on
Granduncle, believe me. I didn't do it
Could it be with me then?
Could it be here?
Oh, granduncle, the money's here
Dad, not my fault. He framed me up
Me? I didn't put the money down
The money's here
Pack up and
go to Hainan to chop bamboo trees
Dad, I'm innocent! Dad
What? Have we lost?
As I said, you're no good
In fact I can afford the dresses myself
The sofa will come tomorrow
but I have no more money.
And I've ordered a new car
I've paid the deposits for 3 suits
and 4 pairs of shoes
It's like a dream
In fact, money doesn't mean much
Hey, hey, hey, look. What now?
We'll keep it of course
Let's divide it equally
Of course. See who can count the fastest
I'm counting it now
Now my sofa is for sure
- I want to buy 10 dresses.
- I sold my car.
It's up to you. Let's have kicks.
