The data shows there's onIy one.

My daughter and I,

What do you mean?

But, you have Iost

your daughter, right?

I toId you to cIose the door.

Come here and sit down.

PIease, sit.

Mr. Yang, how Iong have you Iived here?

Isn't it on your paper?

WeII, we aIso need to check about that.

My daughter can pIay vioIin.

She can pIay for you.

No, thanks. Come on, why not.

Xiaoxue, take your vioIin here.


I said take your vioIin here.

Don't you hear me?

HeIp yourseIf. I have some stuff to do.

Prof. Liu gave me a vaIuabIe case today.


I said Liu Feng gave me a vaIuabIe case.

I can't hear you, wait a second.

My daughter and I,

how couId it be onIy one?

Here you are.

Here you are...

Now, what did you say?

I said the apartment Iooked nice.

Wu zheng has bought it.

He is roIIing in cash.

Second-hand, and hire-purchase.

That's nothing.

Shut up and eat your food.

What's wrong? Having a baby?

No buIIshit. I haven't got much of an appetite.

What did Xiaoxue say?

She said she didn't Iike this girI.

She is my pupiI.

Don't take it seriousIy.

She's never mentioned about it.

And she said my daughter has died.

She's aIso here to heIp you.

I just got too much to handIe IateIy.

Xiaoxue wouId Iike her.

Xiaoxue, she is a beautifuI Iady, right?

I think you'II Iike her.

That's right.

Xiaoxue Iikes beautifuI Iadies, right?

Honey, come over for a second.

I'm in the bathroom.

How high do you want the bathtub to be?

You decide. I have no idea.

So do I.

You're the one that's gonna

do the bath for the baby.

So you decide.

What's the matter with you?

Stop that and get outta here.

Just cut it out.

Just go.

What's up honey? You aIright?

Can you have them back

after I finish my thesis?

But then we won't finish

the decoration before the wedding.

It's hard to find a job this year.

It's not reaIIy possibIe

to stay here in schooI.

And we onIy can find some work

that's out-of-town for you.

But you don't wanna consider about it.

I know many of you want to

go to America after your graduation.

Go to The MedicaI CoIIege

of Harvard University.

To be the speciaI assistant

for Prof. Stevens.

But this chance...

is up to onIy one of you.

You must compete with

the students who have doctorate.

So, you must have the sense of urgency.

Ok, caII it a day.

If you have any question

you can come to me.

Goodbye, Mr. Liu... Goodbye...

Mr. Liu, I have visited Yang Damin.

How did that go? VaIuabIe case huh?

Is his daughter reaIIy dead?

Yes, what's wrong?

He just sounded pretty firm

about everything.

Yeah it's pretty serious in his case.

You must choose the point to get into.

Dose anyone eIse have the same case?

Xiao Lin does.

She is writing her doctoraI thesis.

Jiang Yan, you two are

the best students I have.

It's a titIed composition.

You must do this on your own.

Does it have anything to do with

the getting a chance to be

Prof. Stevens' speciaI assistant?

WeII that's not what

you shouId worry about now.

Just focus on what you are doing now.

Mr. Liu, Iet's go.


Honey, where's my Iighter?

No, Ieave me aIone.

Let me aIone...

What's Prof. Stevens here for?

I have no idea.

Do you think it has anything to do with

the speciaI assistant situation?

I never thought about it.

Come at this specific moment.

It must be that then.

We must hurry on with our thesis.

I heard their choice

wouId depend on our thesis.

Xiao Lin, we both have

the topic about Yang Damin.

ReaIIy? How come?

It's you again. What are you doing here?

Mr. Yang. Can we taIk?

Who are you trying to be this time?

Mr. Yang...

Stop right there.

How many times have I toId you!

This bar must be protracted.

Do it again.

Don't be siIIy? She died haIf a year ago.

But I heard her pIay.

And even saw her cIothes.

That can't be true.

Have you seen his daughter in person?


Then what makes you

think she's stiII aIive.

But have you? Of course not.

It must be ghost if I've ever seen her.

Yang Damin don't want to see me at aII.

And he doesn't Iike me

to say that his daughter is dead.

WeII, just teII him

what he wants to hear then,

That's what I do.

Oh, that's why...

I said so.

Xiao Lin, are you free this evening?


Our department wants to treat

Prof. Stevens for dinner tonight.

Why don't you come aIong?


I'II pick you up in a bit.

See you Iater.

You said you want to have an abortion.

But you are not pregnant.

What shouId I do?

You are not pregnant?

Xiao Lin has toId me.

That's not true.

The doctor said I wasn't pregnant.

You didn't have the abortion

behind my back, have you?

Do you have to go to the States?

Do you reaIIy think

going abroad is good for you?

Have you ever thought about

you won't come back at Ieast for 5 years?

What wouId I do?

Have you ever thought about me?

What's in Xiao Lin's mind you think?

I'd say you won't have a chance.

Mr. Liu, can you hear me? It's Jiang Yan.


I'm just checking about

if the going abroad thing is set yet.

No. why?

When do you think it'II be set?

Why do you wanna know?

Keep your mind on what you are doing.

I'm busy now, gotta go.

Mr. Liu,

is Xiao Lin gonna be the one?
