Hey

Stop! Hey!

Stop! Mister

What is your name?

Shit!

It means...

...asking for your name

There is a "Shit" man

wanting us to stop

But in such remote places,

we should not stop...

...for strangers

He may die of thirst

if we don't stop for him

Seven, tell him to pull over at once

Yes

Master, I've been eating too many

beans and suffer diarrhea from it

If I don't have rice soon,

I'll die too

Stop!

Fai-hong, he can't hear you

What are you doing?

Climbing!

Pal, please stop to save that guy

What kind of talk's it?

What are you doing?

Craziest damn thing I've ever seen

Nothing makes me happier than

saving a life

How about saving yourself first?

Much obliged Ma'am,

folks round here call me Billy!

Nice to meet you!

I am Wong Fai-hong!

Pleasure!

This is a good chance...

...to practice your English,

come on

Who, what, where, when!

Who, what, where, when!

When!

When what?

I am Diana

Pleasure Ma'am

When?

Nothing

You know how?

I know everything!

See, here is the America,

and right there is where we are,

right there, that's my home town

My folks and I lived back east

for a while

But things didn't work out

So we moved out here looking for

a new start

You know what I mean?

Yeah

Yeah! Yeah!

Ma'am

Hi

You really understand what he said?

No

I simply pretend that I do

Yeah?

Yeah!

Yeah!

Yeah!

Yeah!

Yeah... Yeah...

Cut the bull shit and start eating

It's beans again?

We have to be very lucky to make it

to the America

Ah Sol's clinic...

there is also called

Po Chi Lam right?

Exactly under the same name

Having to go through this...

...to pay him a visit,

he must be joking

Master, we ain't no need to live

on beans anymore

Where are you going?

How would you like to have

chicken buff for appetizer?

Coffee, tea, or me?

Or me? How do I drink you?

You are such a woodshed

A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H,

I, J, K, L, M, N...

Do you like O?

I like an O!

Now,

don't you ever say that

I have no sense of humour

Thank you Ma'am

I've told you never

talk to strangers

Come on

Be careful!

Daddy!

Go, let's go

No-shadow Kick!

Master, many barbarians here!

Protect Aunt Yee

Yes!

I can manage on my own

Move out

Fai-hong, Seven!

The horses are beyond control

Give me a ride!

Yee, I'm here to save you!

Seven!

This is dangerous, go back in

Yes!

Hands off my carriage

Where is your Master?

Fai-hong, where are you?

What did you say? I can't hear you

Take care of your back

Watch my kick!

I don't need you

Out!

Sit properly

Be care

Hold it tight!

Fai-hong...

Fai-hong...

Yee...

gratitude from me and my family

Hello, Dr. So

Hi Susan

You've got dark circles

under your eyes

Did you get not enough sleep

last night?

OK! I guess

Well! Why don't I come over

to your clinic later
