The Best of Times

Synopsis: Although their characters and temperaments couldn't be less alike, 19-year olds Wei and Jie are best friends. They're also neighbours, living with widower fathers and problem siblings in the suburbs of Taipei. When Wei is promoted from the rank of nightclub parking valet to the rank of debt-collector in Brother Gu's gang, he persuades his boss to hire Jie to work alongside him. Things begin to go wrong when they are given a handgun to reward their success in the new job. Always excitable and volatile, Jie becomes reckless and dangerous when he has the gun in his hand. When they try to collect a debt from the boss of a rival gang, a fight erupts and Jie shoots the gang-boss. The boys find themselves on the run. But fate and their youthful dreams still have tricks to play...

Any nice chicks?

Everything you could want!

I'll tell them you're coming up

"""Hello, two coming up. It's Manager Ho"""

Ah Jie and I are very different

I've always thought of myself as a happy guy

A very particular kind of person

"""Pretty well grounded,

not much of a dreamer

It's just that

...l seem to hit too many bumps in the road

Good evening

"""Good-looking! Nice butt, too!"""

Feel this! I got a big one!

Ready for your best chicks!

Cut it out

"""Yes, sir they'll look after you upstairs"""

"""Hello, a group of three Weird guys"""

Roger! Upstairs copy!

My cousin Ah Jie completely hooked on conjuring tricks

He'd love to be able to transform

anything and everything

I remember when he was in junior high

He took a bus to Taichung all by himself

to look for his mother

But she brought him straight back here

That was on Mothers' Day

"""From that day on,

he's been the way he is now"""

Ah Jie and I are very different

My mother died of cancer

My twin sister Min has a terminal illness too

The family gets along okay

Let her rest.

"""You two are twins, and your sister's so ill

Are you gonna have a problem too?

What kind of problem?

How should I know?

Isn't it the same thing that killed your Ma?

Are you gonna have a problem too?

I don't know!

Give me a light

"""F*ck, I'll have to fix that light again tomorrow"""

Just tell your dad to put up less street lights!

This one is here so you can read the sign

He is the way!

You should cherish your life

and learn from me

For I am the truth

Shut up! Moron

Whose it that?

Who didn't clean up after themselves?

"""Naughty kid, I'll punish you"""

Ah Jie! Get a move on!

This should have been fixed earlier

I'm coming

Where's your spirit?

"""They're always going out, dunno why"""
