In episode 5 of My Unfair Lady, Molly Ling (Jessica Hsuan) is unhappy that Tian Mi (Samantha Ko) voted for Gordon instead of her, but Tian Mi tells her she was only trying to help her. Molly decides to use Tian Mi to get more of Gordon’s information.
Tian Mi: Now, in a company, employees should not be like a family. They should be like a soccer team. It’s a union, and when they work together well, everyone increases in value. I did this so you can become the company’s MVP (Most Valuable Player).
Molly: I’ve been in this industry for so many years. You have not even passed your probation. How can you help me to add value? I see you’ve just started playing ball and want to switch teams instead.
Tian Mi: You are one of the top professionals of the industry. I joined the company because I wanted to learn from you. This has not changed at all. But Molly, you really have to trust me this time. Think about it. If I voted for you, the result would be 6-6. Then what would happen? You will tell Cherry to call Mr. Yau (Andrew Yuen) to ask what happens if there is a tie.
Molly: What’s the problem there?
Tian Mi: The problem is every boss has their limits. He put Gordon here as a signal for you. If you force him to pick one among two, how do you think he will choose?
You did not utilize all your skills this time because the competitor is Gordon (Frankie Lam). He made you mess up. So before, I actually helped you by voting for him.
Tian Mi: I voted for him in front of you. He will naturally have good feelings for me. He will talk to me more and from there we can interpret his thinking. There’s a saying: know your competitors and win the war.
Molly: That’s right. You have no difficulty to get close with him. He cannot avoid temptation of Mainland China women. He likes their gentleness and flirting.
Tian Mi: I think you hired me originally because of my beauty and ability to talk. You knew I would be useful one day. Now, you can use me.
