If it doesn't move, I can't.

Miss, is this your car?

Move it, you're holding up traffic.

Where else am I supposed to park?

What are you looking at?

Put this in the car.

Remember me at the karaoke the other night?

I know you.

You bit me.

Alcohol is bad. I paid $27 for the cab.

You remember the fare, but what about me?

What's your name? I remember you.

Fang Zhendong.

Show some respect and move the car.

People are getting impatient.

All right, I respect you. Take this.

I'll buy you coffee some day.

Li Peiru.

Fang Zhendong.

A toast to Guiping's prosperous business.

Thanks, Zhong.

Good business.


What is it? You hurt yourself?

Nothing, just a bit numb.

Drink up, it's good for your circulation.

What's your hurry back to Tianjin? Your wife?

Do I look pussy whipped to you?

Both my in-laws are not in good health.

I need to be back sooner to look after them.

Anyway, I've already sold my flat...

in Beijing.

That's a good idea.

In a few more years, I'll sell mine too

and take Zhencong to an outlying village.

I have an old house in Mentougou,

remember we went there last year?

I think it's quite suitable for Zhencong.

Let me know if you need it.

Enough about your bro. What about yourself?

There's a better solution.

Get a wife. She'll take care of you both.

Grandma said I was a lifesaver.

It's my job to look after my kid brother.

Drink up.

The truth of the matter is...

you're not only...

your brother's savior.

Girls are waiting to be rescued by you.

Fang Zhendong. What a coincidence.

It's you?

You're alone?

Where's your wife?

I don't have one. That's why I'm alone.

A nice, independent man.

What did you buy?

Ingredients to make dumplings.


What's your phone number?


All these are for dumplings?
