In episode 10 of My Unfair Lady, Molly Ling (Jessica Hsuan) confronts Tian Mi (Samantha Ko) about getting too close to their CEO Yam Gor (Vincent Lam), only to find out that she is now his personal assistant.
Molly: You ask him how many companies have approached me in these ten years. Ask him if he knows how many headhunter companies have approached me to switch companies. He should be crystal clear. But I didn’t leave because I hate it when people switch sides. When he was doing well, I didn’t leech off of him. When he lost power, I didn’t leave him. If I follow [a boss], I follow them for life. Yam Gor has today’s position because of me. Even he can say I helped him to build it.
Tian Mi: Molly, do you think Yam Gor is smart? You followed a simple boss only because you want to easily control everything. But no worries, I won’t tell him this. What you wanted to tell him, I won’t tell him either.
Molly: Tian Mi…
Tian Mi: Today isn’t the same anymore. If I were you, I would not do so many things. Be more low-key and low-profile. Guard those six malls or else you will lose them too.
Molly: Do you know what you are talking about? How dare you say these things to me? I don’t care what your relationship with Yam Gor is, but remember I am your supervisor.
Tian Mi: Sorry, I forgot to tell you. My supervisor is now Yam Gor. He always wanted to hire an assistant. On the flight en route to San Francisco, he conducted an interview with me. He is very satisfied with my performance. He has already informed Suzanna. I think you will receive an email shortly.
Molly: What assistant?
Tian Mi: Personal assistant. From today onwards, you can contact me if you want to see Yam Gor. I will build his schedule every day.
In episode 7 of My Unfair Lady, Cherry Ling (Natalie Tong) tells her cousin Molly Ling (Jessica Hsuan) what she thinks of love and what women want in general.
Cherry: Me leaving might actually be better for you. Your father is right. What do women want at the very end? They just want a family and want to get married. Although we have been lied to by men, we cannot lose confidence in love. You are so smart. You should not be affected by Gordon. Don’t say you will just marry the company. In Hong Kong, one in every three women above the age of 30 does not get married. We cannot be that one. If my advice is worth listening to, then take it as advice. If not, treat my words as rubbish.
Molly: Right or wrong, you just care about me. Before on the phone you told me that Saving (Vincent Wong) helped you to kick out Hanson (Chris Lai). And he is moving in with you. You and him…?
Cherry: We have nothing. He bought Hanson’s half share of the property as an investment. Nothing else.
Molly: You just broke up with Hanson. Don’t choose the wrong person again. Do not pick someone so poor like Saving. But, he has good traits too: tall, strong, and easy to ask for her. Call him to help you move things!
Cherry: Ok! He loves to help people! I’ll call him.
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.
In episode 4 of My Unfair Lady, Molly Ling (Jessica Hsuan) gets furious at Gordon Man (Frankie Lam) when he tries to take all the credit, although Molly’s team had composed an entire binder for the proposal, while Gordon only had two pages.
Molly: Yam Gor (Vincent Lam), what do mean Gordon and my proposal? What do you mean by I have to go by him? My proposal had over 200 pages: research, data, execution, and everything. His [proposal] only had two pages. Even you asked if that was all he had. You said you were going to give him some time to warm up. You are clear of the entire situation. Does Mr. Yau (Andrew Yuen) have some misunderstanding? Unless… someone misled the boss and wants to take credit for my work.
Gordon: Don’t say such hurtful things. Don’t say steal. I used a lot of effort before to explain our proposal to Mr. Yau.
Molly: Not us.
Gordon: Of course it’s us. “Singles Shopping Event” was composed by us.
Molly: We pulled an all-nighter. You only put in two sheets of paper and now calling it as ‘our’ proposal?
Gordon: I never wanted to take credit of your hard work, or why else would it be as thick as a textbook? But… my two pages were the main point.
Molly: Don’t tell me nonsense. Truth is, you stole my idea to sell to Mr. Yau.
Yam Gor: Molly, calm down, honestly speaking, did you guys think of this idea together?
Molly: Yes, but all the research and data…
Yam Gor: Good, let’s not talk about the small details, I just want to talk about the overall picture. Then did Gordon think of the idea of gifting movie tickets for purchases?
Yam Gor: There we go! So the proposal was done together. There’s no wrong. Mr. Yau sees your hard work, but also appreciates Gordon’s creativity. If you two can work together, it’ll be best. What do you think?
Gordon: We definitely can.
In episode 1 of My Unfair Lady, Molly Ling (Jessica Hsuan) lets others know who has the authority, including telling her dog when to poop.
Molly: Training. Intensive training. Teach them until they learn. Train them until they know it. If they don’t even want to have money in their pockets, OUT!
