In episode 18 of My Unfair Lady, Annie Chan (Zoie Tam) tells Oscar Yeung (Max Cheung) that she has decided to step up and take the position that Mr. Yau (Andrew Yuen) is offering, for she fears she will never have that opportunity again. Oscar warns her that family time is something that can never be recovered.
Annie: I was really young when I got married and had my son. At that time, a lot of people asked “oh, that’s your life?” I was also thinking at the time, would I be stuck in this position forever? This opportunity that Mr. Yau is giving me could be just one time, or even never again. If Molly didn’t leave, maybe even if I waited for 20 years, I wouldn’t have this chance. I don’t want to regret it or give up.
Oscar: What do you want to do?
Annie: Thank you, you don’t have to accompany my son anymore. I’ve decided to give up parental rights.
