Why do people use drugs?

I could never figured it out...

...until Quin and Fan died

It's all because of the emptiness inside

So what's worse...

...the emptiness or the drugs?

I really don't know

Nick. The "caterer" in position in 1 minute


Get in the JV1889 to your right


Get the 3 stooges beside you to follow you

They're like you.

Each holding a lemon tea

You three. Follow me to the car

Why it always have to be lemon tea...

Can't they switch to soda for once?

It's here!

The suspect's car is here. Get ready!

It's a 7-seat silver van

Plate no. JV1889

Unit A. Go now!


Unit A has lost the suspect:

He turned left onto Jordan

Unit B in pursuit



Nick. I made the drop

Call it a day!

The suspect is on Boundary heading

towards Kowloon City

The suspect has turned onto Earl Street

Slow down! Keep your distance.

He might see you!

Nick. The "caterer" is in position

It's a green light! Don't stop. Keep going!

I knew they would pull this!

Think they are dealing with rookies!?

He's staring at you

Get going! Move!

He's sniffing us! Don't look back!

The road split ahead!

Which way should I take?

Stay on course!

Damn! He's gone!

"Client" lost in the roundabout

No sweat! Unit B back in action!

Easy on the turns ahead.

Don't let him slip off!


You are the only tail in business

Heads up

He's turning!

Take the left lane!

I can't. I'm blocked.

Watch it!

Unit B has lost the target

The target went into Kowloon City

Nick. I lost my tail now

- Sand Martin Bridge - Copy

Not too bad

We managed to stick with them this long

Let's go

- Back to station?

- No. I got a game to go to

Split it up!

Get out!

Hurry up!

- Yes - The party's over

- It's a wrap - Copy

Mom! I'm hungry

Just wait a little longer.

Mrs. Luk is not back yet

Once she pays me...

...I'll treat you to a dinner out

Can you spare me some instant noodles?

I'm out

Take some bread instead?

My salary is stalled...

I'll pay you back once I get my money

Eat it...

How much?


Quin. I've got a new number


Yes. Big sister?

Quin is in the ER again. Come quickly!


Go home and get your father's

personal things...

I have a date! Get your sister to do it!

- You... - Hi. Nick!


- Nick - How is he?

Please convince him to have the operation

He shouldn't stall any longer

lt'll be alright

Can I see him now?

Over there



Just a second

What do you need?

I need to pee

- I'll get you a bed-pan - Wait...

There are women here...

Why don't you go to a private hospital?

It's been a really rough year

My kidneys are ruined by diabetes

My wife has high blood pressure

and a bad cholesterol level

My little daughter was born with VSD

Her sister is healthy

But she's a monster!

Did you see her manners?

Can you stand her? I can't!

Take it easy. Your health comes first

Your wife wants you

to get a kidney transplant

But I'll die faster

if the operation goes badly!

I don't think you have much choice

When I send the little one abroad

for her operation...

...I'll get mine done as well

- Did the drop go well? - Yes. It did

I wanted to talk to you though

What is it?

I've found a customer

I want to bank one deal on my own

Just a sec...

What did you say?

I want to do one trade myself

I need to buy a house

How much?

Four sets "Hong Kong Dollars"

I'm asking about the house!

Pls grease me on this one

I'm tired of borrowing!

Who's your buyer?

You taught me not to ask questions

Are you sure he's cool?

Just need to trust me

Yeah. Right...

What kind of house do you need?
