In episode 11 of My Unfair Lady, Cherry Ling (Natalie Tong) and Saving (Vincent Wong) decide to put aside marriage and just date for now.
Saving: When I first received your message, I thought it would be wasteful to turn on the air-conditioner if no one was home. I wanted to reply to you right away, but I didn’t because I knew you had other thoughts behind that. You did not reject me. You were giving me a chance. So I was thinking how should I reply to that message. Actually, it is my wrongdoing, because if it wasn’t for me, the room would not be so humid. I committed a wrongdoing, so I needed to resolve that. I know you need a man who is responsible and willing to take responsibility. I will try hard to do that.
Cherry: I was afraid you did not understand my message. All along, I thought we only had two choices: either to marry or not to marry. But I really didn’t want to let go.
Saving: Then you told me to pick a watermelon. I was thinking if it was a fruit salad, it would be very dry and lonely. Half a watermelon would not be fresh. So you actually wanted a whole watermelon. You wanted someone who would help you to carry things. I picked a 70 kilograms watermelon because I wanted to tell you that no matter what obstacles or sadness you face in life, I will face them with you. I will share the obstacles with you, so you only have to face half. I will share happiness with you, so we have double the happiness. I hope I can be your ideal candidate. So for our third choice, can we temporarily put aside the word ‘marriage’ and happily accept our love?
In episode 9 of My Unfair Lady, Cherry Ling (Natalie Tong) and Saving (Vincent Wong) look into each other’s eyes for five seconds, to which Cherry takes the initiative to kiss him.
Cherry: Really? Lying down here is really that comfortable? What’s up? You do not want to break Rule #4 of the Cohabitation Contract?
Saving: You looked at my stuff?
Cherry: Didn’t you say accidental or on purpose bodily contacts are silly? And looking in the eyes for more than five seconds will cause an eye strain?
Saving: You looked at my secret?
Cherry: I didn’t look.
Saving: That’s very immoral.
Cherry: You forgot to close your door.
Saving: I closed my door. I definitely closed my door.
Cherry: You didn’t.
Saving: So you saw everything?
Cherry: Yeah. Actually, my cousin is quite weird.
Cherry: Something will happen [if we look into each other’s eyes] for five seconds?
Saving: Will we lose some flesh for staring into each other’s eyes for five seconds?
In episode 8 of My Unfair Lady, Cherry Ling (Natalie Tong) hears the backstory to why Saving (Vincent Wong) does not want to get married. He tells her the last time he was about to get married, he started to get panic attacks and ended up not marrying his ex-girlfriend. And because of this, although he knew he started to have feelings for Cherry, he quickly fled to Taiwan to avoid her.
Cherry: So, this time, you suddenly left…
Saving: You know when you sleep, you snore a little. I find that very cute, making me want to protect you. I think this feeling is called having feel. That is why I have to avoid you. Saying what I cannot do, I cannot allow myself to do that for a second time, because you are a girl who needs to get married, right?
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 6 of My Unfair Lady, Cherry Ling (Natalie Tong) finds Saving Cheng (Vincent Wong) at her apartment door, only to find that he bought the other half of the property from her ex-boyfriend Hanson Ho (Chris Lai).
Cherry: They left! But they sold their half of this property!
Saving: You have so many pairs of keys. Give me one.
Cherry: Why should I…? Why do you have so many things? You have money to buy?
Saving: Listen. In the Oxford English Dictionary, ‘saving’ means: frugal, money savings, and to rescue. If all the financial savings are gone, then I’ll just save up again. I said I would help you. I do what I say!
In episode 3 of My Unfair Lady, Saving Cheng (Vincent Wong) tells Cherry Ling (Natalie Tong) that he wants money, but he is not greedy.
Cherry: As long as you tell me things about Gordon (Frankie Lam), Molly (Jessica Hsuan) will give you a check every month.
Saving: Wow, that means I’ll have double salary every month?
Cherry: You are so desperate for money, you won’t reject right?
Saving: Done. Here.
Cherry: What? Taking a picture is equivalent to accepting it?
Saving: Let me tell you. I can sell anything, but will not betray people. It is most important for people to be righteous. Without righteousness, it’s hard to get anything done. This check… just pretend as if I once had it.
Cherry: Even greedy has it’s bottom line?
Saving: Let me tell you. I am not greedy. I am just thrifty. Bottom line is the same as an underwear. No matter how thrifty you are, you still must wear one. Take this [check] back.
Cherry: Ok… Keep your underwear.
In episode 2 of My Unfair Lady, Cherry Ling (Natalie Tong) decides to cut ties with Hanson Ho (Chris Lai), her boyfriend of four years after finding out he is just composed of lies.
Cherry: You don’t have to say anything.
Hanson: Why are you so mad? Is there a need? I still have some time before boarding the flight, so I decided to talk with you. But honestly, if the Hong Kong men working in China told you they didn’t have a woman there, it wouldn’t be normal right? Compared to other men, I am not the one taking initiatives. They came to my side.
Cherry: Hanson Ho!
Hanson: Originally, we were fine. But you insisted on seeing [my phone]. No one wants to hurt you.
Cherry: We’ve been together for four years.
Hanson: I know. The truth always hurts. But you are already 30 something. Be more mature.
Cherry: You lied for a good four years.
Hanson: The women in China are just a game. You are different. I treat you seriously.
Cherry: Seriously? This is called taking it seriously?
Hanson: What are you throwing? I’m trying to clear things up with you. I’ve been together with you for four years and paying off an apartment for two years. Is that not called wanting to get married? You are almost going to be at a high-risk pregnancy. Did I not want you for that? And my mother loves you dearly. Where can you find a mother-in-law like that?
Cherry: Do you know what you are talking about??!!
Hanson: See, you are like that! When I tell lies, you say I’m fake. When I tell the truth, you don’t want to hear. That puts me in a very hard position. It’s time for me to take my flight. Goodbye.
