Light the Night (2021) s01e05 Episode Script

Episode 5

Everyone, sorry to keep you waiting.
- We're so happy today
- Nice to meet you.
to see so many good friends here.
I'm sure you're all tired of hearing
the story of how Ms. Rose and I
grew up together, right?
Ms. Rose and I
experienced so many things
until we got to own this place.
I'm very thankful.
She's the most important person
in my life.
I hope to continue spending
many birthdays with her.
Everyone is waiting for you, Ms. Rose.
All right.
Now, let's welcome our birthday girl.
Let's welcome Ms. Rose.
Life is full of things you can't avoid.
Since you can't avoid it,
just bring it on.
For example, birthdays.
You get a year older after that.
People are scared
of getting old and dying.
Still, we're celebrating it grandly.
Tell me.
Aren't people despicable?
But that's life.
Since you can't avoid it,
just bring it on.
Just like the alcohol,
everybody must drink.
No one can avoid them.
let's drink to our heart's contents.
- Cheers.
- Cheers.
Ms. Rose, happy birthday.
- Happy birthday.
- Happy birthday.
Make a wish first.
My first wish
is for Light's business to thrive.
My second wish
is for all of you here to be healthy
and get what you desire soon.
For my third wish,
I will keep it in my heart.
Otherwise, it might not come true.
Happy birthday.
- Happy birthday.
- Happy birthday.
AUGUST 27TH, 1988
If you can be a good person,
who will want to be a bad person?
I don't want the male lead character
to be traditional.
It's not that
he doesn't want stability, but
He just can't.
Isn't life full of struggles?
While struggling,
we find a way to survive.
- That makes it spectacular.
- To viewers,
is such a male lead character
likable enough?
What era are we in?
Shouldn't dramas reflect how society is?
Life is cruel.
I'm the biggest supporter of writers.
But next week, we need to hear
what the story editor has to say.
It's your first
prime-time slot soap opera.
Let's hear more opinions.
Okay, that's it for today.
Thank you, everyone.
Let's go together later.
- Where?
- You're still pretending?
You're not the only VIP there.
I got the invitation card too.
Great Writer.
It's Ms. Rose's birthday today.
Don't be late, okay?
Let's go.
Excuse me.
Is your lipstick outside the lip line?
Why do you look so unhappy?
Have you ever been betrayed?
It's your birthday today.
What's the matter?
Did you receive a surprise?
Forget it.
If you really received a surprise,
get it back.
See if you're ruthless enough.
It's not like you have to be
a model of good behavior.
Got a light?
Does anyone want to go first?
Take a guess.
Which one is the birthday girl?
If you get it right,
the most expensive drink is on the house.
Of course,
if you get it wrong, there's a punishment.
Let's see
how much alcohol we'll open tonight.
Want to guess it?
Does anyone want to go first?
- Anyone?
- Second one from the right.
- Hana.
- Does anyone want to go first?
What do you think?
She wants you to guess Rose, not Hana.
Since everyone is so shy,
I want
Mr. Nakamura to guess it.
Mr. Nakamura.
Too close. It's against the rules.
My guess is the second one from the left.
"The second one from the left"?
The second one from the left,
please come out to see if he's right?
- Aiko.
- It's Aiko.
- It's Aiko.
- Aiko.
What a shame, Mr. Nakamura.
Mr. Nakamura,
how do you want to be punished?
Whatever you say.
Let's open
the most expensive alcohol here.
I'll do whatever you say.
Thank you, Mr. Nakamura. That way, please.
You just got a call.
Who was it?
He only said that if you're free,
meet him at the door.
He's not coming in.
- Any guesses?
- Go.
- Excuse me.
- Your turn.
How can I when I have no money?
- Has it started?
- No one?
Yes, everyone's guessing
- which red shoe belongs to Ms. Rose.
- Anyone?
Any guesses?
Ms. Sue, let me guess.
Will I get a seat if I guess it right?
Feng, are you kidding me?
Of course. How else would you get a seat?
Fine. Let Chiang Han guess then.
Come on. How can he get it wrong?
No way. Which one is Ms. Rose? Come on.
Since Feng said so,
let Chiang Han guess then.
The one on the far right.
That's amazing.
You can see from so far away.
Did you smell her instead?
That's wonderful.
Feng, why are you so late?
Better late than never, right?
It's because this guy was so slow.
What? Must you two
spend quality time together
by yourselves?
Wouldn't it be nicer
if we're all together?
Am I right?
Happy birthday.
Wang Ai-lien.
Why are you here?
Did you take my stuff?
What stuff?
You're my friend,
but don't cross the line.
Su Ching-yi and my affairs
have nothing to do with you.
Why can't you admit it?
You're actually despicable.
You actually listened to me.
I don't know what you're saying.
It's easier to hate someone
than to forgive them.
Don't you get it?
All done.
Don't you want to get better soon?
Being crueler to her
is the same as treating yourself better.
She's happy now.
What about you?
Wang Ai-lien?
Why are you in the male dormitory?
I'm afraid that you'd starve to death here
because you're upset,
so I came to check on you.
Thank you for your concern.
Keep your clothes on.
It's hot.
What if my roommate comes back?
You guys bring girls over
every day anyway.
Just say that I'm your girlfriend.
What are you saying?
That's not funny?
You didn't take photos, did you?
- Did you do it?
- How is that possible?
You're right.
Talking to you is useless.
Suit yourself.
You'll catch a cold this way.
Are you concerned about me?
Why aren't you eating?
I brought you some bread and canned goods.
Bread with meat sauce is really good.
- Do you have a can opener?
- No.
Borrow one then. How can you eat this?
Girls, Ms. Sue is asking you
to get in position outside
to adjust the lights.
The customers are coming in.
It's just a birthday celebration.
Does it have to be like a cabaret?
You're dressed like you're in a cabaret.
So you took those photos, right?
Where are the pictures?
I showed them
to the one who should see them.
Who did you give them to?
It doesn't matter.
The world is full of disgusting adults.
We must let everyone know
how utterly disgusting they really are.
Do you know that you're crazy?
Do you know what you're doing?
He Yu-en.
I look down on you.
Wang Ai-lien!
- Mr. Nakamura.
- Thank you.
Mr. Nakamura.
- Thank you.
- Thank you.
Bottoms up for you.
The birthday girl
is asking us to drink so much.
She wants our money.
He hasn't been here in a while.
Of course he must be punished, right?
You have a deadline tomorrow.
Can you drink this much?
You get inspired when you drink a lot.
Isn't that how you are?
Good luck in making
your deadline in about ten hours.
You see me.
Everyone sees me.
- At most, I won't sleep.
- Okay.
Ms. Rose.
What are you doing?
He has a deadline in ten hours.
What's wrong with drinking for him?
Are you writing his scripts at night too?
Neither of you should do that.
You must be punished.
- Punishment!
- Punishment!
Fine. What's the punishment?
Eat this cookie together, okay?
Both of you bite on one side.
I'll show you.
- Come here.
- Feng.
It's not nice for two guys
to play this game.
You don't look nice anyway.
Ms. Sue is here. Ms. Sue, come.
You be the judge.
These two
kept displaying their affection publicly
to single people like us.
Shouldn't they be punished?
Spare the birthday girl.
Ms. Rose.
You haven't said hello
to Mr. Nakamura yet.
Do you want to go over there?
Okay, I'll go there later.
We'll play.
We're not scared, right?
Come on.
- Okay.
- Go.
Okay, here.
Here we go.
- Yes.
- Yes.
Chiang Han at Table 5
requested "Speechless Ending."
It's time to sing.
I requested it.
Sing with the birthday girl.
- Sing a song.
- Wait. Why did you
request "Speechless Ending"
for Ms. Rose's birthday?
- Shouldn't you do a duet?
- Ya-ya, change the song.
It's the song I sang
when we first met.
I want to hear it.
Ms. Rose remembers the song number.
Of course, I remember important songs.
Just like important people.
No matter if you love or hate them,
you won't forget them.
You asked how deeply I love you
How much do I love you?
My feelings are real
My love is true
The moon represents my heart
- You asked how deeply I love you
- You asked how deeply I love you
- How much do I love you?
- How much do I love you?
My feelings remain the same
My love is unchanged
The moon represents my heart
Be careful.
Yen Chiao-ju, get me a broom.
I'm getting it already.
Didn't you break a glass that day too?
What glass?
On Ms. Rose's birthday.
Didn't you break a glass too?
Didn't you go?
It was so crowded.
Breaking a glass is fine.
A glass broke,
but no one came to clean it.
Don't you think it's strange?
A gentle kiss
- Already moved my heart
- Already moved my heart
A deep feeling of affection
Leaves me yearning until now
- You asked
- You asked how deeply I love you
How much do I
Think about it
Take a look
The moon represents my heart
Ms. Rose.
If there's nothing else, I'll go home.
Are you okay?
I'm fine.
Go home and get some rest too.
Happy birthday.
It's your turn to change.
I'll use the restroom.
A gentle kiss
Already moved my heart
A deep feeling of affection
Leaves me yearning until now
How deeply I love you
How much do I love you?
My feelings remain the same
My love doesn't change
The moon represents my heart
Why does this look underweight now?
- Chien-ta.
- I don't know.
Someone's looking for you.
What brings you here?
I bought too many groceries this morning.
That's why I made you a lunch box.
That's so nice.
Isn't this too much?
You can all share it.
Thank you, Ms. Hana!
Thank you, Chien-ta.
Bullshit. I can finish it myself.
You can't.
She put in a lot of effort.
There's so much food.
Okay, back to work.
Okay, go.
Stop looking.
Thank you.
Thank you.
You guys eat. I'll go first.
Thank you.
Thank you.
Why don't you have some tea?
- It's okay.
- Okay. Take care.
- Bye.
- Bye.
Li Chien-ta.
- What's your relationship?
- What do you mean?
We're friends.
A friend who makes you a lunch box.
I want one too.
What's Hana's criminal record?
She stabbed her ex-boyfriend.
Damn it.
What? Are you stupid?
Her ex-boyfriend started it.
She's a victim too.
You're ridiculous.
Since high school,
I have kept
every single one.
You're not eating?
Which Su Ching-yi are you now?
There's only one.
What happened last night?
Why did you suddenly want
to come to a hotel?
Then why
did you suddenly come to Light?
I had a meeting with Feng.
I couldn't refuse.
Then why didn't you just tell them
that you and Yu-nung broke up long ago?
What I want to do and what I want to eat
is my freedom.
Do you still love her?
Do you still remember
that we met at the library?
Borrowed books
must be returned no matter what.
Because it's not yours.
It's borrowed.
I only borrowed you.
Is that it?
I'll head back home now.
I have a deadline today.
I think Yu-nung knows.
I think
Lo Yu-nung knows about us.
Why haven't I seen you in a while?
How's your business going?
It's the same.
I heard from someone
that the police raided your place.
Did they?
Huo-wang from the Japanese bar told me
that a dozen people went, right?
I've never seen such a big operation.
They found nothing.
Light is such a refined place,
and they want to check for drugs?
It must be a mistake.
Huo-wang told you that it was a drug raid?
Did Huo-wang tell me that?
I don't think so.
Who told me about it?
I'm really getting old.
I have a bad memory.
What a coincidence.
- You want a hair wash too?
- Yes.
I was just talking to Ms. Rose.
Tiaotong is not peaceful these days.
I've had this shop for over ten years.
I can tell.
are not a minor thing.
I know
you won't get involved in it, right?
Ching-yi, I know you don't want me
to bother you.
I don't want to either.
- But I came today
- He Yu-en.
I don't know how you did it.
But when you placed
Chiang Han's cigarette pack in my locker
- I
- to threaten me.
I have nothing more to say to you.
That wasn't me.
I just want to know
what you're doing every day.
And I want to know if you're with him
and what he can give you that I can't.
But I didn't come here for that today.
I'm sorry.
I secretly
I secretly took photos
of you two on a date.
You took photos
of me and Chiang Han on a date?
I wanted to threaten you with them.
But after Wang Ai-lien found out,
she took all those photos.
I'm sorry. I shouldn't have done that.
I'm really sorry.
So she placed the cigarette pack there.
It's almost time
for Hana to go to work, right?
I'm going to return the lunch box, okay?
- Let's go. We have an operation.
- Sir.
- Thank you.
- Thank you. Take care.
Thank you.
Please come again.
Are you giving me this to apologize?
Do I need to apologize for missing you?
Stop being flippant.
I couldn't find you these days.
What did you mean by that?
I've been busy with something important.
See what's inside.
This is
What are you doing?
Look where we are.
If something is illegal,
shouldn't we be more open about it?
You didn't need to come all the way here.
My colleague Kevin got arrested.
they might investigate me too,
so I must go into hiding.
In this world,
aside from you,
there's no one I can trust.
There are only two packs left.
Keep them for me.
But if you don't want to be implicated,
I can take them with me now.
I didn't say that I wouldn't take them.
Thank you.
What are you doing?
This time, it's really a gift.
It's pretty.
How did Kevin get caught?
I reported him.
- You reported him?
- Yes.
After this, I want to do this alone.
But isn't it riskier this way?
For our future,
I want to take a chance.
Why haven't I seen Mr. Cheng's Royal?
Yesterday's order was delivered.
It's not there?
No. I went through
the whole liquor cabinet.
That wasn't on the wine list.
Are you serious?
Mr. Cheng only drinks that.
You might want to ask Ms. Rose.
She ordered the drinks last night.
Did you order Mr. Cheng's Royal?
I forgot.
You forgot to order alcohol?
Mr. Cheng will arrive at 10 p.m.
Tell Hsiao-hao to get it later.
Did you hear what we said earlier?
Why do you look so pale?
If you were me,
what would you do?
I don't know.
based on your friendship,
I don't think she would do that.
Is there a misunderstanding?
I think
you should ask Ms. Sue about it.
Why don't you talk to her
when you get off work?
Goodbye, Ms. Sue.
You're waiting for me?
You don't seem surprised at all.
From yesterday until today,
I've had a hunch.
Why Chiang Han?
Why Chiang Han?
I'm asking you, why Chiang Han?
I think we should wrap up this case now.
You're overthinking.
- You've worked hard.
- You've worked hard.
- Give me the documents tomorrow.
- Look over there.
- Okay.
- Get some rest.
It's already 1:30 a.m.
I even forgot to eat dinner.
Last time
Do you want to go
to that seafood restaurant
we didn't get to eat at last time?
- For supper?
- I
I'm going to get some rest.
Is it not enough to entertain
other people's husbands daily?
You even had to steal my man.
I didn't steal him.
I just waited until you didn't want him.
Only when you didn't want him
did I take him.
Don't make yourself sound pitiful.
In your eyes,
I've always been pitiful.
Aren't I?
It makes me sick just thinking about it!
So when we broke up,
everything you said
to make me feel better was a lie.
You've long planned to be with him.
Or have you been together for a while?
Did that happen a long time ago?
- When I was with Chiang Han, you two
- Yes!
I've liked him a long time ago.
But what's the point?
I was the one who brought Chiang Han here.
I brought him into our lives.
But before I had the chance
to tell you that I like him,
you were already together.
You were already together.
You were so happy
like it was a matter of course.
And you kept telling me about you two.
Happy things. Sad things.
After he dumped you,
I even had to comfort you.
Have you ever thought about my feelings?
Have you ever thought
about my feelings, Lo Yu-nung?
Have you ever thought about my feelings?
I even had to love him in secret.
I sincerely gave you two
my blessings before.
I told myself to give up too.
He came to me himself.
I didn't accept him
until you didn't want him anymore.
Is this the "right time and right person"
you were talking about?
I didn't do anything wrong.
I didn't wrong you.
I didn't do anything bad to you.
Why must I stand here
and take this from you?
Aren't you my best friend?
Aren't you?
Didn't you say
that you'd always support me?
Now, I have found someone I like.
I'm with the one I like.
Is that so hurtful to you?
What are you doing?
Let's go.
You can't escape.
Forget it. It won't open.
Go away!
I told you we'd meet somewhere else.
Go away!
What are you doing?
You're so fierce.
I dare you to be fierce!
Hua-hua, you're pretty fierce.
I like fierce girls.
You're fierce enough.
Come on.
Good girl.
- Good girl.
- Go away!
Be good.
Good girl.
