I don't know how things turned out

this way

I suddenly remembered when Wu

took me to the airport this morning

Boss, have a good trip

This damn traffic

Our country's real great though

Twenty four hours, Big Bro

Places to eat, twenty four hours

And traffic jams, twenty four hours

Not a single day without traffic

I think I need a doctor

my bladder's going to bust

Spending all day in the car

Nothing's wrong with Wu, right?

Wu's fine

That day he took me to

the airport he told me have a good trip

That threw me off

Because usually when he takes me to

the airport

He'll say

When are you coming back?

When's your return flight?

How long after you met those Thais

did things turn out like this?

From the start they

took me somewhere new

Somewhere I'd never been

It wasn't long before

I felt something wasn't right

Then why the f*ck didn't you run?

How would I run?

Where to?

And then?

Then a bunch of guys came

And after that?

After what?

What I'm saying is

did you and that Edward Scissorhands

become friends in the end?

Grab him

How did things get so fucked up?

My contact in Thailand ran into

a little trouble

So they started to suspect me

Anyway, the crowd he ran with

was real paranoid

If they started to doubt you

it usually wouldn't end well

Were you also dressed like

this that day?

Wearing these smartass glasses?

You want to say something?

We're friends

I respect you a lot

Stop suspecting me

I came a long way

to show you I respect you very much

You've done business

with me for so long

and your Thai is still shit

You say you respect me

But your pronunciation for "respect"

sounds like "dick"

Are you saying I'm a dick?

I respect you

Bring it here

Touch it

Touch it

Those fucking Thais

Especially the dealers

They love to drop big money on rocks

Sometimes when they cut a rock open

It's nothing but a rock

But if they cut a rock

And inside there's jade

And if it's good jade

Holy shit

Then you hit the jackpot

Why'd they make you touch the rock?

You think there's anything inside?

I don't know

You don't need to know

You just need to say if there is

or there isn't

I don't know what to tell you

Some people say, those about to die

Will usually give the right answer


It's really in there

How did you guess there'd

be something inside?

He already spent so much money on

the damn thing

If I said no

He would've popped me right there

If I said yes

The way things were

I still had a chance

So was there anything inside?

There really was something in there

So you could say

that rock saved your life

You could say that

When will those goods be

ready to deliver?

Another two weeks

Is it that little punk again?


How do you know him?

Applied for the job

And you trust him?

It's a gut feeling

Gut feeling

Ah Wen

Where's motherfucking Ah Wen?

He had to go do something

Haven't seen a hair of his ass all day

That ugly ass monkey face motherfucker


Did you know

The past few years

when he first came here

I looked after him

He was like a guide dog even

a blind man wouldn't touch

I found out later

When he takes drugs

He's even more like a damn poodle

He'll jump all over you

Holy shit

Fucking twitching all over the place

Like someone's about pop

his ass any moment

Crazy as shit


What's the matter with you?

You keep fucking staring

The f*ck are you looking at?

Is there a motherfucking ghost?

You know, you've had this problem for

a long time

I have a problem?

What's with you

Afraid if you come over

I'll f*ck you up?
