Let's Talk About CHU (2024) s01e08 Episode Script

Episode 8

Do you like it?
Ted, I love you.
It's time for you to quit.
Are you going to drink
until the house burns down?
You nearly scared me to death last night.
You two are the ones
who are going to drive me crazy.
You guys are dad and son.
Why are you acting like enemies?
Do you think this is okay?
I'll quit if you make up with him.
I'll even quit smoking.
What do you say?
Why do you love him so much?
Is it because he's rich?
He's not the only rich man
that hits on you.
- I really don't get it.
- Of course you don't.
You look like you've seen a ghost
when you see him.
I don't know why you're hiding.
Because I'm scared.
What are you scared of?
Every time I see him do this to your neck,
I'm afraid I'll beat him up.
You mean this?
This is how your dad and I
show affection, okay?
We're still in love. You should be happy.
Your friend's parents
probably don't have sex anymore.
Speaking of which,
you have so many friends with benefits.
Do I ever judge you?
Let's respect each other.
Stop drinking.
Ten meals.
If you have ten meals with your dad,
I'll quit.
One meal.
It's almost 8 a.m. Why aren't you up?
Don't you have to work today?
My shift starts at 10 a.m.
Don't worry about our family matters.
Just go to work, okay?
I'll get going then.
Where are you going?
Home. Where else?
Aren't you going to see Dad?
What for?
Didn't you say
he'll be back when he's ready?
We'll talk when he's ready.
I'm leaving.
Okay, family members please kneel down.
When they enter the furnace,
shout to our loved one,
"The fire is here. Run."
The fire is here. Run.
The fire is here. Run.
Run, Mom!
Grandma, run.
- Grandma, run.
- Bow three times. First bow.
Bow again.
Third bow.
Family members, please rise.
Let's go outside.
Turn around and don't look back.
The ceremony has come to an end.
Do you have anything to say to Grandma?
let's go to a host club.
Okay, give me a space here. Thank you.
Let's tell Grandma, "Please get up."
Grandma, please get up.
Okay, this way, please.
I'm sorry. Please give me a minute.
Why are you crying?
Let's go.
Let's go back to Taipei.
Let's go outside
I can't believe you let your aunt come.
Grandma would be proud of you.
Right, Grandma?
I just wanted to ask her
to help pay for the funeral.
So stubborn.
You're so immature.
You did it to me first.
You did it to me first.
Grandma, look at him.
He's a pervert!
- Grandma told me to take care of you.
- Grandma, protect me.
- Don't use her as a shield.
- Grandma, protect me.
The bus is coming.
That hurts!
That's enough.
What the hell?
But then I thought about it.
I realized
that the image I had of my dad
was something I made up.
I guess he wasn't around
when we were kids.
But I really didn't expect
that he would be like this.
We can only wait to hear him out
when we find him.
Let's go together.
Ai-ai said she would handle it.
I meant counseling.
Why all of a sudden?
I think
it will help us.
It's okay.
We'll get better.
I've decided to stop making videos.
Didn't our channel
just get a lot of exposure?
I need some time to reassess myself.
Is it because of Bonner?
I thought you two
weren't in touch anymore.
It has nothing to do with him.
Or is it because of yesterday's recording?
You didn't say anything wrong.
What's the matter?
I don't know.
A lot of people are still rooting for you.
Did you read the comments?
What's wrong with you?
It's nothing. Don't worry.
What do you mean it's nothing?
How can I not worry when you're like this?
I just want to take a break.
Let's clean up.
We have customers coming later.
What's going on lately?
Ping-ke is one thing.
Now you?
What happened to him?
I heard from the kids.
I know you're in Taiwan.
What's going on?
Why did you have
to borrow ten million from someone?
If it's financial problems,
we can figure it out together.
How long are you going to hide?
We've been married for so many years.
I've put in a lot of effort
for this family, haven't I?
You used to say you went
to the hostess clubs for business.
I never said a word.
What about now?
Chu Cheng-nan,
do you know how disappointed I am?
How could you do this to me?
You know I don't like you
using your phone here.
I was just taking a look.
Can I get one?
I thought you quit a long time ago.
Yu-sen, are you back?
Where have you been?
I went to
your bathroom smells like poop.
Who is he?
He is Yueh, my
Come with me.
Why are you smiling like that?
Did Mom call you?
Yes. Why?
What do you think is going on?
Why isn't Dad coming home?
What does he need ten million for?
Ten million?
Didn't you know?
It really wasn't your fault.
I know you were trying to help.
My dad will definitely pay you guys.
You know what kind of boss my dad is.
He'll definitely take responsibility.
Okay. Thank you.
I knew it.
You said you found Dad?
Take me to him.
So are you saying
Dad lost over ten million
at the end of last year?
Why didn't he just
close down the factory then?
Now he's behind on his employees' wages.
What is he thinking?
Close down the factory?
That would mean the workers
who have worked for him for over 20 years
will lose their jobs.
But you're right.
If he closed it back then,
none of this would have happened.
Your dad sounds like a loyal friend.
A man of steel.
Why aren't you steely at all?
Why are you home?
I can just eat by myself.
You don't have to trouble yourself.
Eating together is more enjoyable.
Let's eat.
Give me the bowl.
Here, this is for you.
- Be careful.
- Okay.
- It's hot.
- Should I?
No, I'll do it.
Don't touch it. You'll burn yourself.
I'll do it.
Okay, that's it for now.
I'll do it.
You have to open it.
Sit down.
Sit down.
Sit with Mom.
All done.
Here, Mom. Eat up.
This food smells really good.
I'll make one for you.
Do you want some soup while it's hot?
Get your dad a bowl of soup. Hurry up.
Actually, our son
wanted to have dinner with you today.
He wants to apologize
to you about the car.
Is that so?
Say something.
Your dad came all the way here.
I'm sorry.
I shouldn't have keyed your car.
Don't you like shrimp?
Eat more.
See how good your dad treats you?
I'll make a call later
to reopen your credit card.
No need.
I didn't apologize for that.
So you don't need to restore my card.
But after you start working at my company,
you will still need it.
I'm not going to work for you.
What should I do then?
Your mom said
that if I give you a job,
she will quit smoking and drinking.
Should I go find you when I'm done?
Or do you want to go back
to my place first?
Your place?
Why would I go to your place?
Hurry up and go.
Can you do me a favor?
Let's go.
Do you know which unit it is?
What should we do?
Hold on a second.
Have you seen this person around here?
Have you seen him?
No, I don't know him.
I can't see clearly.
This one.
Have you seen this person?
He's around here.
I don't know him.
I haven't seen him.
We're looking for this man.
Have you seen him?
No, I haven't.
Okay, thank you.
Still no answer?
Can I help you?
Have you seen this person?
No, you're in the wrong place.
You didn't even look.
Yes. Could you take a closer look?
We're looking for this person.
No, I don't know him.
Wait. Have you really not seen him?
- No, I haven't.
- Are you sure?
I told you I haven't. What are you doing?
- Why are you pushing me?
- Don't be like this. Take another look.
What's going on? Why is it so noisy?
Yu-sen, that's her.
- Don't push my sister.
- Miss.
- Dad!
- What are you doing?
You have quite the imagination.
I don't have such bad taste.
That's crazy. Not possible.
So have you been sleeping here
for the past two months?
If you just work here,
why don't you go home?
if your dad goes home,
how will he explain to your mom
that he has to go to work every day?
Why didn't you explain to me
when I came to see you that day?
He doesn't want you to worry.
The factory manager already told me.
With the developments there,
they will be able to find jobs soon.
You don't understand.
How do I not understand?
The factory stopped making money
when I was in Indonesia.
In the past four years,
factories have shut down one by one.
You should have closed it down
a long time ago.
Close it down?
Don't I have a responsibility
to my employees and their families?
Are you being responsible for them now?
I'll figure out how to pay them.
It's not about the wages.
How much do you earn
selling fake medicine here?
Miss, don't talk nonsense.
We're not selling fake medicine.
They're real.
How much?
If your dad finishes selling this batch,
he can earn this much.
But he hasn't even sold half of it.
As for the money,
I'll take care of it.
You're a wage worker yourself.
How can you take care of it?
I can.
Anyway, don't worry.
I'll handle the factory issues for you.
But the family matters,
you're on your own.
Come on. Let's go home.
I'll help you explain.
I'll talk to them for you, okay?
Come on.
Wipe your ass with this.
You got it?
No need to look. It's two million dollars.
Mr. Chu!
Sir, I've heard a lot about you.
Have you?
Come, get in my car.
- Just get in my car. Come on.
- Dad, get in.
I don't need this money for now.
You can pay me back later.
Get in.
Ai-ai said they were on their way back.
Don't worry.
Come and have some fruit.
We're back.
- Why is it just you two? Where is Dad?
- Mr. Chu, I'm telling you.
That's not considered gambling.
I know.
He's a professional.
It was on the news.
There's a guy
who sings like he's chanting.
A bald guy called MC Hamburger.
MC Hamburger.
Don't you mean MC HotDog?
Right, MC HotDog.
He competes abroad, right?
Are you done?
What time is it?
You're making so much noise.
Don't our neighbors need to sleep?
Take this for now.
I'll figure out the rest.
I'll get going.
Mr. Chu, respect.
No matter what,
apologize first.
Father, men need to be strong.
I'm sorry. It's all my fault.
Chu Ai, are you leaving?
All right.
I'm sorry.
I didn't mean to upset you.
Do you think they will be okay?
Don't worry.
A 33-year relationship
isn't that fragile, okay?
I hope so.
Where are you going? Do you need a ride?
I drove.
Who is he?
This is Yueh, my
Hello, Yueh.
This is my sister and brother-in-law.
Nice to meet you.
How did you two meet?
We were playing cards
Yu-sen, I left my phone upstairs.
Okay, hurry up. I'm a bit tired.
Okay, I'll be quick.
I knew you would be worried.
That's why I didn't tell you.
I wanted to find a solution on my own.
I didn't know it would turn out like this.
I've caused you and our daughter
to misunderstand me.
I really messed up.
When I heard about it,
I was really nervous.
Think about it.
My life's business and savings
went down the drain just like that.
My heart was about to break.
You know
the business
is for our children.
I really didn't do anything wrong.
I swear.
That's enough!
Not only did you go to a hostess club,
but you even took your daughter there!
I had to lie for you
to maintain your image as a dad.
- You!
- Hold on.
I don't get what you're saying.
Stop pretending.
You're not fooling anyone.
You took Ai-ai to a hostess club.
She was five years old.
You know how ridiculous you are?
Are you talking about that?
I didn't think she would wake up.
She was sound asleep in the car.
You left your child in the car
in such a dangerous area!
How dare you make excuses? Seriously!
Don't be mad.
Forgive me.
You know how much I love you.
- Stop pretending.
- It's true. I'm not lying.
How about
give me a kiss.
- How about two kisses?
- Who wants to kiss you?
How about I kiss you?
Why would I kiss you?
Or how about we do it?
- Do what?
- Stick it in you.
Stop talking nonsense
with that mouth of yours.
Hello, Yu-sen.
You guys go ahead.
I have somewhere I need to go.
Your call will be forwarded to voicemail
Thank you so much for today.
Hello, ma'am. Happy Lunar New Year.
What the hell?
Do you want to do it now?
Are you that scared of falling for me?
Are you okay?
I'm fine.
What are you doing here?
I'm here to see how you're doing.
Let's go.
I'll take you to do something cool.
I shouldn't have asked you
to be my fake boyfriend.
This is so annoying.
If you find it annoying,
just tell her that we broke up.
Why didn't I think of that?
No matter what happens,
our friendship always comes first.
Didn't you also say
that you can't imagine sleeping
with the same woman for 50 years?
How are you different from them?
Can you not compare me to him?
Did I say something wrong?
So do you have
any other criticism or advice?
Or do you want to ask your mom first?
I thought
Let's not contact each other anymore.
It really is you.
I haven't seen you in a long time.
Are you here to see Ping-ke?
What are you doing here?
I need to pee. I'll go up first.
I'll take this upstairs.
- Aren't you picking up a parcel?
- Get it for me.
Coco told me about your job.
I know you don't want
to talk to me right now.
I wouldn't either if I were you.
But I still have to tell you something.
I know very well
how good you are to me.
I know how much you care about me.
But I keep getting angry at you.
And out of the blue,
I keep saying
hurtful things to you.
I don't think I've ever
considered your feelings
or your mood.
You have a tougher situation
with your family than I do.
But you still let me have my way.
I feel
like I'm always trying to prove something.
It's like I have to keep pushing you away.
To know
To know that you care about me.
I'm sorry.
You're a great person.
I'm the one who ruined us.
You're such a fool.
Sit wherever you want.
I'm going to take a shower.
What's wrong?
The smell of shit.
You won't smell it
once you get used to it.
Fuck Chu.
Fuck Chu,
I'm sorry.
I was going to tell you after you woke up.
But I'm afraid
I wouldn't be able to leave.
I think
this is the only way
I can start over.
If you're willing,
please wait for me.
I'll be back soon.
That's all for now.
I'm taking off.
Yes, right here.
Why are you so wet today?
My ears are wet.
That's why I'm doing this for you.
By the way, when you pack for Indonesia,
include more clothes and underwear.
It's only for a week.
Why do I need so much?
We have a layover in Japan.
Before we go back to Taiwan,
we can stay there for a week.
We can have some fun.
Haven't you always wanted
to travel abroad?
I do want to.
But can we with our current situation?
The factory has closed down.
That is exactly
why I have time to take you there now.
How many days will it be?
It will be however long you want it to be.
Next up is social news.
The police recently
raided a counterfeit drug base.
They found virility pills
called Fun All Night.
They are all fake.
- They are ineffective
- What's wrong?
- and can even be harmful.
- Did you buy it?
No, I didn't.
Why would I need it?
I didn't think so.
- Don't say that.
- Hurry up.
- Let's switch sides.
- Lie down here.
This side is wet too.
Of course.
Would one side be wet
while the other is dry?
Give me a chance.
"How can I give you a chance?"
I didn't have a choice before.
I want to be a good person now.
Ask the judge
if he will let you be a good person."
can't you put more feeling into it?
I'm not the one acting.
There will be a lot of reporters
at my performance.
I'm going to be on television!
Can't you practice with your cellmate?
I just want to practice with you, okay?
All right.
Be serious.
My career depends on this.
Are you changing careers?
What do you think?
Should I be a gangster again
when I get out?
Am I here serving my sentence for nothing?
Okay, I'll be serious.
Give me a chance.
"How can I give you a chance?"
Machi Machi. How are you?
You need to change the tire and handlebar.
- Here.
- Thank you.
Get me a white cushion. Check for one.
- This will take three days.
- Okay.
Of course there is.
If you check in, like,
and share my location,
I'll change your motor oil for free.
Of course.
The bubble tea you bought is so good.
It's so good.
Why are you so dressed up today?
It's a big day.
Wait for me. I'm almost done.
Take your time.
It's okay. Just leave it there.
I'll handle it later.
You two should take off.
It's okay. We still have time.
Don't you need to take a shower?
Fuck you.
Don't you need to get changed?
It's your future sister-in-law's big day.
- She's not my future sister-in-law.
- She's not his future sister-in-law.
To be honest,
in the past few years,
I've been like the heroine in the book.
Stuck in that bottomless black hole.
I was in pain.
The people around me were suffering too.
When I got out, I realized
that in the end, it all comes back
to how we feel about ourselves.
Before we end tonight,
I would like to share something
I heard from my therapist.
"The body doesn't lie,
our love and desire for each other
will be more honest than anything else."
Thank you so much for coming tonight.
My name is Chu Wei.
I hope you enjoy the book.
Thank you.
Thank you, Chu Wei,
for sharing that with us.
Please support this book.
Thank you, everyone.
Thank you.
I'm so beautiful.
You took good photos.
Can you send me all these photos?
Of course.
Thank you.
Are you leaving?
Please. Do you know what time it is?
Why are you so late?
There was so much traffic.
I'm sorry, Chu Wei.
This is from both of us.
It's okay.
Just buy 100 copies next time.
You can save the flowers.
All right.
The way you look today
reminds me of when we first met.
How so?
There was light.
You were glowing.
- What are you doing?
- Hugging you.
I just put on lotion.
Give me a kiss.
- Give me a kiss.
- Let go of me.
- Give me a kiss.
- I'm getting up.
What do you think?
Not bad.
But why are you looking at this?
I'm going to rent it. Why else?
But it's a 40-year-old apartment.
I wonder if it's as smelly as your place.
Chou Ping-ke.
Listen to me.
The only way out is through.
I know your dad
has been coming here a lot lately.
But you can't avoid him like this.
Are you stupid?
Why would I avoid him?
Then why are you suddenly moving out?
I thought
we could live together.
Are you scared?
I think
I am quite used to freedom.
I'm just kidding.
I said I'm kidding. What?
I'll live with you.
Forget it.
Are you mad?
When did you become so petty?
Can't you even take a joke?
You're so different
after we started dating.
No, I'm not.
Then say it.
Say what?
That you want to live with me.
You're such a strange woman.
You love it.
