The Ultimatum (2009): Season 1, Episode 12 - Episode #1.12 - full transcript

Sun Min falls for Songqing. He also likes her, but is unable to accept that he has fallen for another man.

Are you wondering how healthy the food you are eating is? Check it -



He's been avoiding me lately.

Could it be that he's fallen for me?

That's impossible!

He thinks I'm a guy.
Why would he fall for me?

But he's been acting strange
around me lately,

as if he has feelings for me.

But look at me.

Why would he fall for me?

Why am I acting this way?

Could it be...

No, this can't be happening!

I couldn't possibly fall for a guy
who only has eyes for cakes.

But why is my heart beating so fast?

Could I actually have feelings for him?

Why do you look so lifeless?

I could ask you the same question.

Why are you sighing?

What about you?

It's Zhi-da.

What's with Zhi-da?

Since he became the God of Gamblers,
everything has changed.

I don't know if I'm helping him
or doing him more harm.

You wouldn't harm him.

You don't understand.

That's true.
If I don't understand my own affairs,

how can I expect others to understand?

I keep thinking that I've made a mistake.

No, I'm the one who made a mistake.

Why am I always thinking about him?

How can Zhi-da be with Yu-chen all day?

Although there is nothing between them,

I can't help but feel a little uneasy.

I feel uneasy.

I'm forcing myself not to think about him,
but I can't stop thinking about him.

I long to see him,
but I get so nervous when I see him.

I'm also feeling nervous.

They are spending practically
the whole day together.

Can anyone guarantee nothing will happen?

Can two people grow on
each other over time?

But he...

It's not normal for me
to fall for him, right?

What if...

What if Zhi-da falls for Yu-chen?

I wouldn't have promised Zhi-da,
if I had known!

If Zhi-da falls for her,
what will happen to Bao-ying and me?

No, it's impossible! I'm a normal guy!

I was drunk. That's the only reason!

Yes, I must stop thinking about it.

It will become a reality,
if I keep dwelling on it.



A penny for your thought?

I have nothing. What brought you here?

I've been thinking of you
since the competition ended.

Thinking of me?

I find it strange too.

We've been learning
how to make pastries together for years.

We've even partnered each other
in competitions.

But this is the first time
that I've thought of you so intensely.

I now realize that we
share a lot of common interests.

Especially our passion for cakes.

After I ate the cake you made
the other day,

I suddenly had this intense feeling.

I thought that we would
make a very happy couple.

Shall we start a relationship together?

You have feelings for me, don't you?

Think about it,
then let me know your answer.

See you.

This is great!

I'm normal. I have feelings for her.

Have you not held a girl's hand before?

Feelings? What a load of nonsense!

It's not nonsense.

I feel warm and blissful.

So I do like her!

Pale Face, you...

Girls like Gigi are my type,
not guys like you.

You're being mean.

I'm not! I'm a normal guy.

I won't ever fall for you.

Did I say I liked you?

That's even better.

I can concentrate on my cakes now.

All that worry for nothing!

What is it now?

I came just to see you.

Let me guess. Is it another dinner party?

I won't fall for the same trick twice.

Why do I feel like you're happy to see me
and you can't wait for me to take you out?

A healthy dose of self-confidence
can quickly descend into conceit.

Not only am I conceited,
I'm also a tyrant.

Let's go.

Are you buying jewelry?

Buying a birthday present for a friend.
Can you help me?

Do you trust my judgment?

I have no reason to doubt it.

What do you think?

It's very pretty.

Are you sure your friend will like it?

My friend has similar taste as you.

For whom is this expensive gift for?

It's a secret.

Is that so?

Since you're so curious,
I'll give you a clue.

I'm giving it to a girl.

She lives on earth, doesn't she?

Thanks for your help.
I have something on and I have to go.

Jie Sun!

Can't bear to see me go?

Get over yourself!

Yu-chen and I will be celebrating
our birthday tomorrow. Will you join us?

Yu-chen didn't invite me.

-I'm inviting you.
-Is it a date?

I'll be there if I can find the time.

But don't get your hopes up.


You're early.

Su-zhen would've thrown me
out of the office if I didn't leave.

She did good! I was worried
you might have forgotten about the party.

I was thinking the same about you.

-Happy birthday!
-Happy birthday!

This would make us soul mates.

I think you'd much prefer to be soul mates
with another person.

Are you thinking of Feng Zhang?

We were talking about Bao
while we were having a meal the other day.

He said Bao was a forgiving
and understanding woman.

They are like a real couple.

It bothers you that
they are staying together?

I'd be lying if I said it doesn't.

But I don't want to put Feng Zhang
in a tight spot.

He was right.

If it hadn't been for Bao,
he would have been dead

and I wouldn't have reunited with him.

Bao is both his benefactor and partner.

I can't put my finger on it,

but I feel like there is more to this
than meets the eye.

Somehow, I can't describe the feeling.

Maybe I'm being paranoid.

You have doubts that Zhi-da is Feng Zhang,

but you're trying to cast them aside?

He was gone for five years
and I never stopped looking for him.

I had lost all hope.

Then he came back so suddenly.

If he is not Feng Zhang,

I wonder how I'm going
to live with the truth.

Even someone as smart and rational as you

can feel helpless
when it comes to dealing with love.

Love can indeed bring on
a lot of heartaches.

Sounds like you're also
having relationship problems.

Am I right?

He and I are not a couple.

Did you have a fight?

We've never really spent time together,
let alone have a fight.

Do I know him?

Why are we talking about him?
Let's change the subject.

No, I want to find out more.

How did you meet?

We've known each other
since we were young.

Childhood sweethearts?

What is it?

What did Gigi say to you yesterday?

Why do you want to know?

I'm just curious.

She said she felt very moved
after eating the cake I made.

She asked if I could be her boyfriend.

Do you...

want to be her boyfriend?

I haven't considered that.

But when she held my hand yesterday,
I did feel something.

You have feelings for her?

Gigi was right.
Making cakes is an interest that we share.

I think if we were to start dating,
we would be very happy.

If everything goes well,
we might even get married.

We can make pastries together,
enter in competitions together

and perhaps even win.

Do you like making cakes with her...

or do you just like her?

I don't hate her.

But that doesn't mean you like her.

Love can be cultivated.

It can develop over time
between two people.

I asked Ren-yi to come.
You don't mind, do you?

You're also the birthday girl.
You can invite anyone you like.

Happy birthday.

Thank you.

Ren-yi has told me
what happened between you two.

I asked him to come
because I was hoping to be your mediator.

Ren-yi has been feeling reproachful
with himself for having offended you.

In fact, he's been feeling a little down.

Will you forgive him?

I've already forgotten about it.

It's all water under the bridge.

Does it mean you've forgiven me?

Come, sit down.

Are you waiting for someone?


Open the present and see if you like it.

I was going to give you
this necklace the other day.

Well, you know what happened.

It's too expensive. I can't accept it.

That means you're still angry with me.

Ren-yi really wants you to have it.

-Mom, what are you doing here?

I came to celebrate
your sister's birthday.


Mom, this is my friend, Yu-chen.





Song-qiao told me
that it's your birthday too.

I bought you a present.
I hope you'll like it.

Happy birthday.

Thank you.

Happy birthday to you!
Happy birthday to you!

Happy birthday to you!
Happy birthday to you!

Make a wish and blow out the candles.

Thank you, Ms. Ye.

-Excuse me.

Ms. Ye.

-Song-qiao tells me you work for your dad.

You must be doing a very good job.

Your parents are so lucky
to have such a capable daughter.

You're flattering me.

Song-qiao is also very capable.

She's so young,
yet she already has her own law firm.

Her law firm is barely keeping afloat.
There's nothing to be proud of.

Ms. Ye, you are so pretty.

Do you take after your dad or mom?

Everyone says I take after my dad.

How is that possible?

Ms. Zheng.

What I meant was you are so pretty,
you probably take after your mom.

I guess I look like both my mom and dad.

Do your parents love you?

Yes, they do.
All parents love their children.

That's true.

Unless their situation doesn't allow it.

All parents want to
have their kids by their side,

give them all the care
and love they deserve.

That's true.

Ms. Ye, are you happy
living with your family?

Why are you so skinny?
Do you always fall sick?

I'm sorry, but I hope you don't mind me
asking so many questions.

That's all right.

I'm surprised Mom turned up
for your birthday.

I guess the cows have come home.

It's the first time she celebrated
my birthday with me and had my cake.

You never seemed this moved
when I celebrated your birthday.

But I find Mom's attitude
towards Yu-chen to be very strange.

Yu-chen is Song-nian's daughter.

I would understand if Mom hated her.

But surprisingly,
she seems to be very fond of her.

That, I find very strange.

That's what I'm worried about.

Is Mom plotting against Yu-chen?

There's no point worrying about
what you don't know.

We should instead focus on the positive.

Mom is not unreasonable.

She knows Yu-chen is not Song-nian.

I hope so too.

I must get back to my preparations.

I'll take your advice
and come out more often.

Mom, what did you two talk about?

Ms. Ye, thanks for keeping me company.

I do wish that we get to talk again.


What's wrong?
Did you have a fight with her?

No. That's just how she treats me.

For no apparent reason?

After I was born,
my family went through rough patches.

What did my mom say to you?

Nothing, really.
She kept asking me about my family.

My mom is very direct.
I hope you don't mind.

Don't worry. I enjoyed talking to her.


How are things?

What do you mean?

Do you remember
you're the God of Gamblers?

I've been trying very hard,
but I just can't seem to recall anything.

Where does Yu-chen take you
when you go out with her?

We go gambling.

You don't know how thrilling it is
to be a high-stakes gambler.

The bets are easily set
at $5000 or $10000.

You slide the stack of chips like this.

Show your cards! Nobody flinches!

Do you have money for
high-stakes gambling?

Well, I don't. But Yu-chen does.

Come here, let me tell you something.

The other day I lost $200,000.
She didn't even bat an eyelid!

I know why you're cozying up
to Yu-chen now.

Because she pays for your gambling.

I'm going to tell her!

-Don't talk nonsense!
-Tell me what?

Master has been cozying up to you
because you let him indulge in gambling.

Don't be taken in by him!

What a load of nonsense!

I don't mind at all.

As long as I can help regain his memory,
money is not a problem.

Can we go now?
I'd like to take you to a place.


Yu-chen is Song-nian's daughter.

She and Song-nian
are two different people.

Your feud with Song-nian
has nothing to do with her.

-Was I mean to her?

Mom, I'm very happy
that you came to my birthday party.

-Thank you.
-I didn't come for you.

Your mom went home?

Are you waiting for that person?

I've been watching you.

Why don't you give him a call?

That's not necessary.
I'm not expecting him.

He didn't say he was coming.

-Is Song-qiao here?
-I'm Song-qiao.

Mr. Sun asked me to deliver this to you.

Thank you.

You even know how to drive a yacht.

Do you want to learn?

I'm smart. I'll learn to work
this baby in no time. Show me!

This is the handle. This is for steering.

To the right...

This is the life!

I never thought
I could live it up like this.

This feels surreal.

If only I was really the God of Gamblers.

Not only can I be a high roller,

I can also take the yacht out to sea,
enjoy the sun,

eat strawberries and sip on red wine.

I'm willing to cut short my life
in exchange for this.

You are the God of Gamblers.

I forgot!

I forgot for a moment there.

Do you remember saying this
before your disappearance?

You said that we were going
to see the world together?

I couldn't wait for it to happen
so much so that I even dreamed about it.

I had initially thought that this dream
would never come true.

But it did.

This isn't a dream.

Did I say something like that?

I'm sorry.

I still cannot recall the past.

It doesn't matter
if you don't regain your memory.

I'm happy as long as you're with me.
Nothing else matters.

Leaning against you feels so real.

I wish time would stop at this moment.

The weather's great.
I'm going in for a dip.

Was the present from Jie Sun?

How do you feel about him?

He's my friend.

Just a friend?


He didn't turn up for your birthday party.

That says how much you mean to him.

He's just an ordinary friend.

He's not obligated
to celebrate my birthday with me.

A present is more than enough.

Can I listen to channel 93,3?

Next, we have an interesting
request from a listener.

He says today is the birthday
of a female friend of his.

He hopes to send her
his wish over through the airwaves.

This girl had overcome many obstacles
with him when they were kids.

He hopes she will share
his weal and woe in the future as well.

He says he's got her a kaya bun
instead of a birthday cake

and that she knows where she can find him.

The next song...

Was that from Jie Sun?

You looked so distracted today
because of him?

You actually find
his juvenile behavior charming?

You like him, don't you?

Sorry, I'm getting off here.


You're late.

Were you disappointed
I didn't turn up at your party

and that I didn't eat your cake?

You're mistaken.
I enjoyed my birthday very much.

That's good.
Birthdays should be a happy occasion.

Why did you ask me to come here?

To celebrate your first birthday
after we found each other again.


I can't think of any other place
that's more suitable.

Will your wish come true
if you wish upon a kaya bun?

What are you doing?

By eating half of your wish,
I can help fulfill your wish.

No regrets?

What was your wish?

Your arrogance will be your downfall.

If you included me in your birthday wish,

I'd die with no regrets.

You're being melodramatic.

Come with me.

Do you own this place?

Do you like it?

Does it matter?

This is my birthday present to you.

I didn't attend your party

because I wanted this celebration
to be between just the two of us.

Wait here for me.

Happy birthday.

This gimmick will probably
work on young, wide-eyed girls,

but it's lost on me entirely.

I really want to give you a home.

Why should you do that? I'm not homeless.

You have a home, but it is not complete.

Go on.

My mom left me when I was young.

A friend at the time told me
that his mom would hit him.

I asked him how that felt.

He was very angry.
He thought I was mocking him.

I yearn to know what it feels like
to have a mother.

You can compare a mother to a carnation.

A carnation may look modest,
but it invokes a sense of warmth.

That's how mothers make you feel like.

So, I hope to give you
a complete family in the future.

Wait here.

Someone's coming! We must go!

What are you doing?

They can't know that we're here.

Who are they?

Don't ask. Climb over the wall.

It's a long way down.

They're coming. Take off your shoes.

Jump! They're coming!

Go on!

-No, I don't want to.

Come on.

They're closing in on us. I'll catch you.

Let's go!

Give me back my shoes!

Let's go!

Thank goodness they didn't come after us.

What happened back there?

That wasn't my house.

We were trespassing?


Why did you do that?

I bet this has been your
most memorable birthday.

How could you even laugh?
I was unknowingly trespassing!

If in the future your client said that
you didn't understand a criminal's mind,

you could tell them you were once a thief.

Since that house wasn't yours,

then whatever you said
and did earlier was also a lie?

You seriously can't tell?

I have no time for your tricks!

I will prove to you
that I'm serious about you.

I don't care!

If this happens again, I'll go
to the police and take you to court!

Are you angry?

I do apologize.


Here comes the food!

I'm sorry you have
to make do with this food.

This is good enough.

Why aren't you eating?

I want to take a good look at you.

Whatever for?

After you disappeared,
I looked everywhere for you.

I thought I'd never see you again.

You must have been devastated.

I was worried for you.

Whenever the phone rang,
I would get very frightened.

Fortunately, I have never received
a call from the police,

which means that you were still alive.

Only your whereabouts were unknown.

Many people told me
that you were gone forever.

They told me to give up hope.

I didn't want to worry my parents,
so I came back to Singapore.

But I was still hopeful.

Every year on the day you went missing,
I'd go back to look for you.

I'd wait for you at the church

from morning till night.

But you never showed up.

You will only get hurt
by giving yourself fully to love.

If you'd been through the anguish
of losing a loved one,

you'd understand how I feel.

I don't wish for anything.

I just want to be with you.

But I can't remember a thing.


I may never remember my past.

I am Zhi-da, not the God of Gamblers.

Forget that you're Zhi-da.

You are Feng Zhang.

We'll make it work.

I'm sorry.

How could I even think that?

I shouldn't have done that.

I'm not Feng Zhang! I'm Zhi-da Zhou!

Zhi-da, you better come to your senses!

I can't let Bao down.

Come inside.

I was too impatient.

You've lost your memory.
You can't accept my love.

I should have been more understanding.

I should be the one apologizing.

I don't know what came over me.

I will continue to help you.

I won't pressure you.

I won't force you.

Come inside.

-Dad, come have dinner.
-Dad, eat.


Where is Yu-chen?

Yu-chen is celebrating
her birthday with a friend.

Let's eat.

What friend would make her want
to skip her own family celebration?

A boyfriend, of course!

Could it be the same man that she was
seen with on the floating casino?

I think it's him.

What are you getting at?
Don't beat around the bush.

Tell us what you really think.

We have a high roller
on the floating casino lately.

His losses can go up to $200,000.

I found out later
that he was a friend of Yu-chen's.

The money he lost was,
in fact, Yu-chen's money.

No wonder she's been
looking distracted lately.

When I talk to her about work,
her mind seems to be somewhere else.

So, she's not thinking
about work after all.

Yu-chen is a rational and sensible person.

I don't suppose she'd be
distracted by such a small matter.

You shouldn't have jumped to conclusions.

Everyone at the casino knows
she's indulging that fellow's gambling.

Are you implying
that Yu-chen is keeping a lover?

That's not what he meant.

He wouldn't be so rude
as to criticize his own family.

Who is that man?

Feng Zhang.

I thought he disappeared.

She was reunited with him recently.

What happened?

She said Feng Zhang lost his memory
after he was beaten up.

He's been in Singapore
for the past few years.

But he lost his memory.

As for Yu-chen's taking him to gamble
on the floating casino,

I don't know much about that.

Dad, I'm back.

Mom, Aunt Ruo-lin.

-Have you had dinner?

Come with me.

Are you back with Feng Zhang?


I ran into him.

But he doesn't remember
the fact that he is Feng Zhang.

Sit down.

What happened to him?

After he disappeared,
he was injured in an accident.

Then he developed a fever
which caused him to have amnesia.

If that is so,

how can you be sure that he is Feng Zhang?

I'm certain that he is Feng Zhang.

I never had a good
first impression of Feng Zhang.

Later on, you told me
that you wanted to marry him.

I was strongly opposed to that idea.

You said you loved him.
You believed he'd give you happiness.

So, I gave you my blessings.

In the end, he didn't give you happiness.

Instead, he brought you years of anguish.

It wasn't his choice to make.

He was injured and lost his memory.

It couldn't have occurred to him
to look for me.

Let's put aside the matter
of his real identity for now.

My question for you now is,

can you live with the hurt and anguish
for the second time?

I admit that I did have my suspicions
when he first appeared.

But I chose to believe him

because he is the man I love.

Because I'm doing this for him,
I have no regrets.

Invite him home for dinner
one of these days.

Still mad at me?

Get over yourself!

Why should I be mad at you?

Great. Let's have dinner together.

I don't want to ruin my appetite,
so I'll have to decline your invitation.

I'll keep following you until you say yes.

You're thick-skinned.
Why should I say yes?

You cannot refuse me.

Because you ate my bread.

What does bread have to do with it?

You shared it with me,
so now we're joined at the hip.

I don't have time for you.

I'm meeting Ren-yi for dinner.

You're obviously using him as your shield.

Think whatever you want.
My answer is still no.

Song-qiao has turned you down.
Will you please leave?

All right.

Please accept my apology
for what happened that day.

Miss Song-qiao,
will you accept my apology?

Okay, I forgive you. Bye!

Please stop harassing Song-qiao.

I just need ten minutes of your time.
I want to give you something.

What is it?

Come with me.

Did your dad give
The Little Princess to you?

Yes! This is the one!

I had such a hard time looking for it.

-I'm not dreaming, am I? I've found it!

Thank you! How did you find it?

I'm not telling you.

But do you know why I have the thing
that you spent ages looking for?

No, I don't.

Do you really not know
or you don't want to say it?

What do you want me to say?

Accept me.

You come and go like a whirlwind.

It's too fast.

I haven't had a good look at you.

I think I need more time.

Fair enough.

I hope you will accept me
when I pop the question again.

Jie Sun.

Jie Sun!

We're from the CID. You're suspected
of being involved in a murder case.

We require your assistance.
