In episode 22 of My Unfair Lady, Mico Wen (Mico Cheung) recalls the time her cousin Saving Cheng (Vincent Wong) ran to Taiwan to escape marrying his girlfriend.
Cherry: Actually, I wanted to tell you, nowadays, there is only a small amount of men who want to get married. Your… the one who wants to get married with you, would you consider him?
Mico: No, because I think two people who are in love do no necessarily have to get married. That’s how my cousin feels. Even if you are together with him, he has not mentioned getting married or anything. Plus, before my cousin had a girlfriend who forced him to get married. Then he got so scared and ran to Taiwan to find me. God, that time was so scary. My cousin is someone who cannot get married.
Mico: Then… what are you going to do?
In episode 21 of My Unfair Lady, after the betrayal of his business partner, Gordon Man (Frankie Lam) is left with nothing. Seeing him in disappointment, Molly Ling (Jessica Hsuan) decides to sell her apartment to give Gordon the necessary funding to continue on.
Molly: I know what you are thinking. You haven’t given up. You are still thinking about this startup business, but for the high-end market. The other matchmaking websites are spread out in 23 provinces. But our selling point is China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan match making services, pinpointing on the larger cities. The other websites have a difficult grasp with quality control, so we must use celebrities to make noise.
Gordon: You really can guess exactly what I’m thinking.
Molly: That day in the Shanghai mall, you must have been thinking about the Soul & Soul wedding gowns event, where the Taiwanese representative won. You said when it comes to being flirtatious, they must learned from Taiwanese girls, so our website must include the Taiwan market, attracting more high-end members. Then we can win other competitors.
Gordon: Even if you can think of it, it’s no use. [I have] no money. Let’s talk about this in two years after I save some money.
Molly: No, no one knows what will happen in the world after two years. It must be done now. That night at the Shanghai hotel, I checked your phone for the first time because I wanted to know what you were troubled by. It turns out you were looking at the map. So I made a decision to sell my apartment.
Gordon: No need to sell.
Molly: Too late. The first payment has already been deposited to our company account. I said I would walk this road with you. I definitely will.
In episode 20 of My Unfair Lady, Saving Cheng (Vincent Wong) and Cherry Ling (Natalie Tong) are forced to be interviewed by Hanson Ho (Chris Lai). Just as Saving is confronting Hanson, the boss Mr. Yau (Andrew Yuen) walks in and Saving turns to confront him instead.
Saving: It’s all your this boss’ fault. You are the good person and you are the bad person. You think you are everything for being a boss? You kicked Gordon out and forced Molly to leave. And now even forced Annie to give up on her son?
Mr. Yau: I am the boss. I have money. I can play it any way I want. You are receiving my salary, so you must do what I want you to do. Even if I gave you a piece of poop, you have to eat it.
Saving: It’s not like I’ve never ate poop before. I do as I’m told. I work night and day only to make a few thousand. It’s not like I haven’t ate it before. But these people, do they know rental and business management? They only give up some money and time to fire some and raise some and tell others to do this and that. Is that fair? Go outside and ask some people. Find anyone to ask what they want, and they will answer you they only want a secure job. Why do they have to use an entire lifetime to find a secure job? Because there are rich people like you. The richer you are, the more games you play! Is this world fair? Is this world fair?
Mr. Yau: Are you out of your mind?
Saving: Let me teach you how to be a boss. You need to be socially responsible as a boss, take care of your employees, and change the world a bit.
In episode 19 of My Unfair Lady, Molly Ling (Jessica Hsuan) apologizes to Cherry Ling (Natalie Tong) for controlling her all these years.
Molly: Cherry, sorry, that night in the office…
Cherry: Actually, I was action-driven and said a lot of things I wasn’t supposed to that night.
Molly: You’ve worked hard for so many years and took me for who I was, but I never said this word to you: Sorry. I spilled that pot of porridge. I was wrong for putting the blame onto you. But at that time I had no other options. The night before spilling the porridge, I heard Uncle on the phone with my dad. He was saying how irresponsibly my dad was and did not have enough money to pay for another person in the household. If he couldn’t stand it anymore, he would kick me out. If I did something wrong, what would be the result? I lived in five different houses in 16 years. Although we were relatives, never was there a person who treated me so well like you.
Cherry: Sorry, I didn’t know… Remember the night of a singing competition? I spilled the bottle of soy sauce but you helped me to take the blame. I know you’ve always loved and cared for me. I…
Molly: With you by my side, I have family. You are correct. I am afraid to be alone.
Cherry: You won’t be alone from now on. You have me, your father, and Gordon. And if your company needs anything, I can come back to help, I am ready…
Molly: NO. I’ve controlled you for so many years: your major, your friends, and your job. You did not choose any of them. Actually, you pay a lot of attention to the details, have good planning, and work really hard. You said you are yourself when you don’t have me. You are correct. You are grown up now, you can be independent. I have to let go to let you walk your own path.
Cherry: I will not let you down.
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.
In episode 17 of My Unfair Lady, Saving (Vincent Wong) finds out Cherry Ling (Natalie Tong) got paid to act as a client for a matchmaking event. He offers to pay the male clients double the amount. Cherry is worried about making ends meet, but Saving knows his matchmaking virtual reality idea will work out.
Cherry: I don’t want to do these things either, but we need to pay the mortgage for the apartment at the end of the month. We don’t have money. I just want to make some money. Why don’t you tell me what you want me to do or what I can do? I’ll go do it.
Saving: I feel VR (Virtual Reality) will be a trend in the future. I’ve thought about it clearly. I will continue to do it. Do you believe me?
Saving: You have given me great confidence by believing me. You can leave the rest up to me.
In episode 16 of My Unfair Lady, Gordon Man (Frankie Lam) and Molly Ling (Jessica Hsuan) come to realization they are the perfect fit for each other in Shanghai. Gordon vows to be by Molly’s side forever.
Gordon: Are you ok?
Molly: I’m ok.
Gordon: You must not have adapted staying here. You go back to Hong Kong, ok?
Molly: I don’t want to go back to Hong Kong. It’s just that I cannot control anything here. I don’t know what I should do here. I don’t know if Kwok Li is trustworthy. I can’t even decide the most basic thing: what I can eat. I don’t have a sense of security.
Gordon: Sorry, to make you suffer. But I really cannot do anything right now. The only thing I can do is to stay by your side.
Molly: Say that again.
Gordon: I will always be by your side.
Molly: That’s already enough. When I was young, I waited for my father to say that to me. When I grew older, I waited for someone who loved me to say this. I want a shoulder to lean on and someone who could share with me. After waiting for so many years, I’ve finally found him. Actually, what I want is not a lot. All I want is someone who I love and who loves me, to live with me and grow old with me.
Gordon: I love you.
