Verse 19

The worst of the Eight Hells

is called Continuous Hell

It has the meaning of Continuous

Suffering. Thus the name

we started valet parking in Tuen Mun

We were full of ambition

But 2 weeks had hardly gone by

and the cops started busting us every day

Within one year

Thanks to the Buddha, my life was spared

What thousands must die

so that Caesar may become great

But I don't believe in destiny

The rule of this game

is to take fate in our own hands

You are the newest in my gang

Your records are the cleanest

You can choose your own future


I wish you guys

every success in the police force

Bottoms up, officers

How many files were on my desk?

Six, sir. Four beige ones on the left

one red and one white on the right

What do you think of me?

Sorry, I'm not sure, sir

But I know you're in a hurry today

'coz your socks don't match

Yes, sir

You owe me $500

OK, but wait till pay day next month

I told you he would make the best

undercover cop

Now that you're in the cadet school

you should follow the rules

Those who break the rules will be

like him

They will be expelled

Who wants to trade place with him?

I do

this is a long-term undercover mission

Your records in the cadet school

will be erased

Only Superintendent Wong and

I know of your identity

This mission is highly dangerous

is that clear?

Yes, sir

Sir, I can't stand it any longer

I'm either harassed by cops

or beaten up by gangsters

Give me a good reason

why I should promote you

Hang on?

Why don't you go hang yourself instead?

I won the Silver Whistle Award

at the cadet

and have received numerous kudos as

an officer

I am confident I can lead the police force



OK, I got it

Move forward

Hurry up

Please go over there to take your mugshot

Excuse me

Can I try this stereo?

What speakers are you using?

Nothing special, any recommendations?

Try this tube amplifier

made in Hong Kong, 10,000 only

And use this cable, also locally made

about 1000

The sound is as good as expensive

European amps

Sweet high notes, crisp middle

strong bass

In a word, transparent

Come and listen

Human voices are drifting towards you

See that?

Voices are indeed drifting towards you

Try this one

This is ideal for listening to oldies

What do you think?

Much better indeed

Any discount if I buy the whole set?

Buy the tube amp here

but not the speakers

Go to Cheung Wai; it's cheaper there

Whom should I ask for?

Just tell them Yan sent you

Which one is mine?

The one in the middle

Okay, thanks

You're welcome

ls Cheung Wai open yet?


You bastard

I told you to watch the store

not to send my customers away

But your speakers are over-priced

if I don't sell them at this price

how can I afford to pay "protection money"?

You can try not paying for a change

Hey, the cable

I'll return it in a few days

$4,000 for a few days?

Where are you rushing to?

A funeral

Tell me

How many times have you been busted

for assault?

I am trying to convince

the Department of Justice

that you need to see a shrink

But you keep on beating people up

Are you really going nuts?

Have you forgotten you're a cop?

You told me it's only for 3 years

But after 3 years come another 3 years

and another

It's almost 10 years already, boss

Can't you be a bit more courteous to me?

I'm the only one in Hong Kong

who knows your real identity now

Maybe I'll just erase your file

so you can stick with the Triads for good

What do you want me to do?

Remind myself I'm a cop every day?

Shouting "Drop your gun, I'm a cop"

even in my dreams?

When will Sam place his order?
