Attention, all employees!
Attention, all employees!
According to the police station's notice,
the raincoat pervert appeared again
at the three-way intersection
500 meters west of the factory last night.
Currently, the police are making
every effort to solve this case.
I hope
all female workers in our factory
stay safe.
Female workers, stay safe.
Why won't this person disappear?
(Security Department)
I heard the flasher has appeared again.
I want to confirm the time with you.
It should have been around
9 o'clock last night.
Then it wasn't Lu Xiaolu.
How do you know?
We were together at that time.
After we sent the German expert away,
we went to the Good Cat Stall.
Dr. Bai,
can I ask you a question?
Is Lu Xiaolu bothering you?
If so, tell me,
and I'll keep him away from you.
There's no need for that.
I actually misunderstood him before.
If needed,
I can vouch for his innocence.
Dr. Bai,
I didn't
believe it was Lu Xiaolu
from the beginning.
I've practically watched him grow up.
When he was young,
although he was lively,
he often helped the elderly
in our factory
by carrying things around
and running errands.
He's a good-hearted kid.
He wouldn't do that.
Of course,
solving the case
can't just rely on feelings, right?
You're right.
We need to find the real flasher
to clear Xiaolu's suspicion.
(Safe Production Comes First)
=Episode 4=
=Many Suspicions=
- Hey! Lu Xiaolu!
- Don't run!
What are you doing here?
It's so dangerous.
I have quicklime.
I'll sprinkle it on him
when he gets close.
Your plan is not so great.
Stop talking and chase him!
Stop running!
Bai Lan!
Are you serious?
Do you have to yell so loudly?
You startled me.
That was my trick.
Whenever my dad hit me, it hurt a lot,
so I would scream
really loudly,
and then he wouldn't hit me so hard.
Actually, it didn't hurt at all.
Is that so?
You can call out.
No, I won't.
What's wrong now?
your butt is bleeding!
Let me check.
Hey, you pervert!
You were acting perverted just now!
I was trying to save you.
I'm also trying to save you.
Oh well, forget it.
Just ignore it.
I'm fine now.
I didn't expect you
to be quite conservative.
My butt can only be shown
to my future wife.
How can I let you see it?
Will you marry me?
I'm a doctor,
I've seen many butts,
do I need to marry every patient?
If you don't want me to check, forget it.
What are you doing?
You had dust in your hair.
I wanted to blow it off for you.
Then help me get the electric fan.
You're quite clever.
Is it clean now?
Yes, much cleaner.
Isn't this great?
Do you finally believe
I'm not that pervert?
But I think today's person
is not the same as last time.
What do you mean?
is a psychological disorder.
Generally speaking,
their behavioral patterns don't change.
But today, this person
had no intention of flashing.
He attacked me with a stick right away.
And when I struggled with him,
I noticed his body was soft.
But the person from last time
had well-developed muscles.
I understand.
You must have suspected it was me
because he had great muscles.
Lu Xiaolu,
you're shameless.
No wonder you've been beaten
since you were little.
Actually, you are wrong.
No one could beat me since I was little.
That just means
you've been beaten too little,
that's why you are so annoying now.
I've always been annoying.
I think you knew it well.
It hurts!
You are less annoying now.
Are you crazy?
That hurt so much!
Dr. Tian.
Oh, perfect timing.
I've discovered a new way to eat.
Ham sausage is perfect with it.
Want one?
I'll pass.
I have something to ask you.
- What's up?
- Look at this.
Dr. Bai,
I'm old now.
Don't joke with me like this.
The security department is watching.
This was from that pervert.
I don't have this.
Birth control supplies
are always kept
by the trade union Chairwoman.
She's friendly and will
give them to anyone who asks.
You should
talk to her about this.
- Is it good?
- Yes.
I'm going to the medical room then.
Three bamboos.
- Wait.
- Mom, Aunties.
Hey, Xiaolu,
- why are you back?
- You are back.
I came back to get some clean clothes.
Wait for me to finish this game,
and I'll get them for you.
Just focus on your mahjong.
I'll get them.
Look how considerate Xiaolu is.
You don't need to worry about him.
Oh yes.
My son has been
playing with him
all the time.
He's smart. South.
I wonder who will be
so lucky to marry him in the future.
Not you for sure.
Excuse me, is this
Chairwoman Zhao Lizhen's house?
Who is it? Come in.
- Give me Five Characters.
- Alright, take it.
Five Characters?
- Hey, I, I
- Who is it?
- Six Characters.
- Chairwoman Zhao.
Are you the new Dr. Bai?
We are playing mahjong.
Hey, these ladies
are all from our factory
and have been here for a long time.
You came to
I went to the union this morning
to find you.
They said you weren't feeling well
and were resting at home.
Do you need me to check on you?
It's nothing.
It's just my son.
He moved to the factory.
I'm not happy about it
and can't eat much.
My stomach hurts.
It's an old problem.
I just needed some rest.
Thank you for asking.
Come on, have a seat.
Oh, is there something wrong?
It's like this.
I heard that the birth control supplies
are kept with you, right?
Ah, yes.
They're in that room.
In that room?
You are new here,
so you don't know.
Let me explain.
There are many
middle-aged workers in the factory
and some young workers.
During the day,
they feel embarrassed to come
to my office to get them,
so I thought of an idea.
I moved these birth control
supplies home.
When they finish work,
they come quietly to get them.
This way, it avoids embarrassing them.
It's been working well like this.
Can I see the claim records?
How can there be records for this?
This is a private matter
for couples.
I can't keep a
According to regulations,
birth control supplies should be kept
by the medical room,
and every transaction should be
clearly recorded.
This way, we have a
clear trail for audits.
What are you implying?
Are you suggesting
I'm abusing my authority?
I didn't mean it that way.
But these are factory items,
not personal items.
Hey, why are you speaking like this?
Talking about factory and private items,
and you say you don't mean that?
I think you did mean it.
If that's what you're implying,
then let me tell you,
I, Zhao Lizhen,
have always been
and willing to take on any task.
I've never engaged in any
underhanded dealings.
That's right.
Even the factory director
turns a blind eye to it,
you, a newcomer, why are you
acting so high and mighty?
Dr. Bai,
you're new here
and might not fully understand the situation
in the factory.
It's best to watch what you say.
We all know Chairwoman Zhao's
character very well.
Since there are no records,
I won't disturb you further.
I'll move the items back
to the medical room another day
to avoid misunderstandings.
- Well
- What are you implying?
Are you threatening me?
Hey, why are you
speaking out of turn like this?
You should learn
some manners.
It's up to you
how you want to interpret this.
I'm just following regulations.
What are you doing?
I should ask you that question!
Do you think I was going to jump off?
No one wants to live more than I do.
Even if you don't admit it,
I know
someone as proud as you
would feel ashamed to let others know
you have thoughts of dying.
I promise I won't tell anyone,
but you must never do something
like that again.
Even if others don't understand you,
I know
you're not the person they think you are.
You're not selfish at all.
Don't think you know me.
I am selfish.
- No, you're not.
- Yes, I am.
- No, you're definitely not.
- Yes, I am.
I said you're not, so you're not.
I believe in you.
What is that room?
The administrative office.
What's up?
I just saw a man
bullying a woman,
but then they disappeared.
It's fine if you don't want to accept me.
There's no need to come up with
such a lame excuse.
Do I need an excuse to reject you?
If you're not in a good mood,
how about
we go out together this weekend?
My cousin's ice skating rink
opens at 7:30.
Say my name at the door
for free admission.
It's a deal then.
I'll be there. See you then.
(Dajiang Skate Land)
Come on, dear friends!
It's the first day of
Dajiang Skate Land's opening!
Have fun!
Welcome! Come in!
You'll get a discount.
(Celebrating the opening of the skate land)
Come in, come in! Welcome!
Come in, please.
Hey, where's your girlfriend?
You haven't got her yet?
Hey, Xiaolu!
Slow down.
You might fall flat on your face.
Can't you lend me a hand?
Why did you come alone?
Where's Li Guangnan?
How would I know where he is?
Hey, change your shoes
and teach me.
I can't teach you.
Ask Li Guangnan to teach you.
He's good at it.
You'll teach better than him for sure.
Let's go.
- Come on, let's go.
- Hey, slow down.
That girl likes Xiaolu.
You sit down first.
Welcome, welcome, welcome!
Dear friends,
Dajiang Skate Land is officially open!
Thank you all for coming to support me.
We not only have
the latest generation of ice skates,
but also unlimited beer and soda.
To celebrate our opening,
we'll be hosting the Dajiang Cup
Skating Competition at 8 o'clock tonight.
The winner will receive
a one-year free pass.
We hope everyone will participate!
You've brought the girl,
show us some moves now.
Dajiang, you misunderstood.
I'm not joining the competition.
If I do,
no one else will have a chance to win.
That's true.
Can I try?
It's you!
What? Not happy to see me?
Everyone's welcome.

She must have a crush on me,
deliberately bumping into me.
Sorry about that.
Come on, let me touch your little face.
Stop it!
What's wrong? What is it?
Someone harassed me.
Sit down first.
Lu Xiaolu!
Let go.
You call yourself a friend?
- What are you doing?
- Was it you who
left two movie tickets on my bed
and tricked me to go watch a movie?
What movie tickets?
What are you talking about?
It's a joyous occasion.
I brought my brothers here
to liven things up.
What if I say you are not welcome?
No matter if we are welcome,
we paid for our tickets.
You are here looking for trouble!
Lu Dajiang,
do you despise my brothers?
you might not win
in a head-to-head confrontation.
Laowu, the knife.
Boss, the knife is in the bike.
I left it there after peeling apples.
I have a hundred ways to deal with you.
What are you doing?
- Light it up!
- Put it down!
- I'll really light it.
- Calm down.
Put it down.
Boss Hu!
Let's talk things out.
You're still making excuses.
You just want to date Little Pouter.
- Li Guangnan, let go.
- It's not like that, Li Guangnan.
What are you doing?
I put the movie tickets there.
You stupid rats!
Even Buddha gets angry.
What do you want?
You want a fight?
Come on!
Bring it on!

You deserve it.
What are you saying?
I've told you, I've been wronged.
You were already dating Little Pouter,
and you're still saying
you've been wronged?
You treat her like a treasure
but I don't.
The person I wanted to date
wasn't her at all.
It was me?
You wanted me to watch you fight?
Okay. You can leave.
It's done.
Let's go.
Come on.
Let's go!
But on another note,
you did pretty well today,
especially after drinking.
It was like a transformation,
just like that Sailor Moon thing.
Seems like you've done
this kind of thing before.
What do you think?
Let's stop talking and leave.
Wait a minute.
I know that
your family is better off than mine,
and you're better looking than me.
If Little Pouter really likes you
and you're interested in her,
I'll back out.
You're my best bro,
and I don't want to fall out with you
over a woman.
You don't have to back out.
The person I like isn't her.
But she doesn't like me.
She's always cold to me.
But you still like her, right?
Of course.
If you like someone,
you have to stick with it.
Don't give up.
But what if I'm 40
and she still doesn't like me?
Then you
just give up.
Give up?
Then who should I choose?
I think Xiaoying is pretty good.
She's like one of the guys.
She's probably not going
to get married by 40.
Forget it. I still want to
have a better old age.
Come on,
Xiaoying is great.
Think about it, she's kind,
righteous, and in good shape.
I'm telling you,
she's the most special woman
in the world.
You really should
You You
What are you doing here?
Lu Xiaolu,
you should say those things to my face.
Don't say that behind my back.
I like being praised.
Take it.
It's braised beef I made myself.
I'll come find you again.
Now I think
Xiaoying is not bad.
Why don't you consider her?
Take it. It's all yours.
But it's for you.
(Don't take what belongs to others,
or I'll be after you every day.)
why are you dressed like this today?
Are you getting married?
Your mom is getting married!
My mom wouldn't dress like this
at her wedding.
Why are you dressed like a female spy?
Hey, Master,
what's wrong with your daughter today?
Look at her.
Don't say that.
Don't say that.
You will never get meat in the canteen.
You look really good.
Dad. Dad.
Don't call me dad.
Why are you dressed like this?
Don't you feel awkward?
Don't you? Don't you?
You get so drunk every night
that you can barely walk!
Don't you feel awkward?
I You
It's for me?
Just take it.
Throw it away if you don't like it.
You too,
feel free to throw it away.
That's enough.
Just hang in there.
You should pretend a little longer.
It just lasted for three minutes.
You're envious?
That beef looks really good.
Lu Xiaolu,
I have something to tell you.
What is it?
Do what you do now.
Let's talk in private later.
Here, eat this.
you're such a good friend.
Thank you so much.
The person who stuffed
the threatening letter
into your door crack
must be someone from the factory.
With so many people in the factory,
why target me specifically?
Don't you think you easily offend people?
Don't take what belongs to others,
or I'll be after you every day.
What's this?
An old booger?
Lu Xiaolu!
Black sesame seeds.
These are only used
in the walnut cake workshop.
It'll be like finding a needle
in a haystack to look for track him.
We don't need to do that.
He'll come to us.
(Don't take what belongs to others,
or I'll be after you every day.)
(Lost and Found)
Have you seen anyone
who looks like that flasher?
No, I haven't.
Do you think he'll come today?
Have you read Conan Doyle's novels?
What about them?
Confident killers
often return to the scene of the crime,
while timid ones
usually destroy all evidence.
This flasher doesn't dare show his face.
He only uses threatening letters,
which shows he's a coward.
Looks like you've read a lot of books.
My dad is a librarian.
I spent every summer vacation
at the library.
If you didn't miss
the college entrance exam,
would you have become a top student?
Hard to say.
Now, do you think
I'm quite impressive?
Do you kind of like me?
Stop being conceited.
It's going to rain.
Will he still come?
(Lost and Found)
(Don't take what belongs to others,
or I'll be after you every day.)
Someone's here.
- I'll go.
- Hey, don't be impulsive.
He doesn't look like that flasher.
He's gone.
Doesn't seem like
we'll have any luck today.
Let's go.
Let's wait a little longer.
Night shift is about to end.
