A Hearty Response

Synopsis: After a botched attempt to nab a drug smuggler in a parking garage, police detectives Ho Ting-Bon (Yun-Fat Chow) and Cheong Yan (Fong Liu) accidentally cause a runaway car to hit a young woman, Kwong Sun (Joey Wang), who is in the city illegally. Sun then fakes amnesia in order to protect her illegal identity, and is put-up for several nights by Bon. While Sun struggles to find her identity papers in Hong Kong and relatives to take her in, Bon feels compelled to let her stay in his home. However, Sun can only fake her amnesia for so long.

You, go check over there

- See anything?

- No

They're back here

Follow them

Over there

Cousin, you better leave without me

No. We'll go together

This is HK already. Hurry, go


I've made the call but I can't find your aunt

You're a stranger in HK, stay with me

Scared? Let me take it out for you

Don't be scared

You are incurable

Do you have a sound reason

for being transferred eleven times

within only one year after you left the cadet?

You are like a human football

Did you hear what I said?


If it's not because we're relatives

I'll never let you work

in my district


I know

He's here

Phone call for you

Uncle, there's a phone call for you

Sister, what is it?

Watch out for my hat

Don't interrupt when your elders are talking

I'm talking to your mother

I won't be coming

I'm being bored to death by your son here

Nothing you can do can amend it

I'll tell him. All right, bye

What did mom say?

Don't soak your athlete's foot in the tub

Your son caught the bacteria on his scalp

It's a good thing it didn't go into his eyes

Or else he'll have

athlete's eyes

Shut your mouth

I have all the experienced

CIDs here

Choose one as your partner


I can't stand experience cops

They'll be on my back constantly

Just get me a lazy one

But one not as handsome as I am

That will be hard to find

This one is the worst. How about it?

Good morning

Judy, you can go now

No, I want to see you go in


- Morning

- Morning

Bon, all dressed up

for a modelling job?

Yes. Playboy asks me to pose for their cover

Can't you be serious?

I didn't say anything wrong

Don't you want me as a model for your company?

Resign? What's wrong with being a cop?

If something happens to your family

You can be sure I'll work hard on the case

If you and I are to get marry, you must quit

Then, we'll just live together

No. I've typed up your resignation letter

How smart

There's a typing error


You're great

Let's go

You can't come and go as you please

Being a model beats being a policeman?

Police are respected

Have you heard of models are respected?

So I want to be a policeman

I've transferred a top man to assist you

Tell 23838 to come in

When you see him, you may think I'm lying

But, don't let your eyes deceive you

Whether you're a good cop or not is genetic

In him, runs the refined blood of my family

So, you must not doubt his performance quality

Come here

Let me introduce you

This is your new partner

Long man

King Kong

What King Kong? Ho Ting Bon

Now I know why

you haven't been promoted

You talked too much

But it doesn't matter


Birds of a feather, flocked together

Now that you're partners,

I've a case for you

I hate apple polishing

So, don't give me any royal treatment

Even I'm his relative, don't do me any favours

This is Addict Hung

He may have a drug deal

at 4 pm tomorrow

So, he is your uncle

Who says? I am his uncle

My father is still young for his years

I am an accident from his old age

Did you hear what I've just said?

About Addict Hung?

He may have a drug deal

at 4 pm tomorrow


Don't you two have work to do?

Yes, sir

Taste samples, please try

The taste is great

Try some

Please try some

You've been at this 3 or 4 times already

I just want to taste it better

With so much sampling, you should know by now

How many boxes do you want?

You're not buying? Then move

It's boiled

We've been here for 3 days

Is the info true?

True or not, we must be patient

Being a CID is hard,

I'd rather sit in office


I know, but we can't identify ourselves
