Then he drops the chopsticks and found a few more dumpling baskets under the table. The boss confronts him if he calculated it wrong for people of four. Tse Yuen said he counted it for four dishes of dumplings and two teas. Tse Yuen threw the baskets out of the window and yelled and pointed at two customers who’s been sitting but never ordered. The boss’s order came and whined that the baskets fell down on her head and she hugged Tse Yuen. The boss yelled at Tse Yuen to go back to work. At the office, Lei Kei threw papers at the people and took the last ticket for a job. He sees a father told his children once he gets this job he can buy them bread. The father asked for the final tickets but it’s gone. Lei Kei gave the father his ticket and wish him luck.

Lei Kei saw his clothes down the stairs from his flat. He tries to open his flat but couldn’t. Lei Kei opened the door and asked the landlady if the lock is broken. The landlady said she has changed the lock. The landlady asked Lei Kei to pay his rent one hundred eighty dollars. Lei Kei said he lend someone a few hundred dollars, he will pay her tomorrow when he receives his paycheck. The landlady said if he has money to lend to others, he should buy a house instead of renting a flat. The landlady said he if doesn’t have money he should rent the flat elsewhere. He already lend the flat to another person. Lei Kei wants to come in to pack his stuff. The landlady said he doesn’t have valuable stuff and only those torn clothes, she gave him his suitcase. Lei Kei buys a lottery ticket.

Tse Yuen hid in the closet from the boss’s daughter. Tse Yuen’s roommate told the boss’s daughter that Tse Yuen has left and she can follow him. Tse Yuen climbed down the window and went to work.

Tse Yuen believes it is better to be honest. Tse Yuen said he learned from his father to not harass women, betraying friends, and losing conscience. Lui Kei grabbed Tse Yuen’s pajamas. Tse Yuen told Lei Kei he has to ask him first and why did he lied to his mother about letting him stay in the flat. Lui Kei said he saw he didn’t object. Tse Yuen told Lei Kei he can stay here but he has a request, he asked him to make a vow.
