He has great business sense. First he sold me fish and chips, then the whole thing.

Cop663

Actually she did go to California that evening. But it was the other one.

Cop663

[633 confronts an intruder]
Cop663: What are you doing in my apartment?
Faye: You asked me to visit.

Cop663: [to new bar of soap] You mustn't let yourself go. You've gained weight so fast. She may have gone but life goes on. You must stop indulging yourself.
Cop663: [to new towel] You're a real disappointment to me. You've changed so much. You can't just switch personality like this. Her walking out is no excuse.
Cop663: [as it drips] It was such a relief when I saw it crying. It may look different, but it's still true to itself. It's still an emotionally charged towel.

Did I leave the tap running, or is the apartment getting more tearful? I always thought it would cope okay. Didn't expect it to cry so much. When people cry, they can dry their eyes with tissues. But when an apartment cries, it takes a lot to mop it up.

[Faye is confronted by her boss]
Faye: I'm not daydreaming.
Manager of 'Midnight Express: Right. You're not daydreaming. You're sleepwalking.

I thought we'd stay together for the long haul, flying like a jumbo jet on a full tank. But we changed course.

Cop663

Cop663: You like noisy music?
Faye: Yes. The louder the better. Stops me from thinking.
Cop663: You don't like to think? What do you like?
Faye: Never thought about it.

If memories could be canned, would they also have expiry dates? If so, I hope they last for centuries.

He Zhiwu, Cop 223

[223 phones some potential dates]
He Zhiwu, Cop 223: Lulu? This is Qiwu. Want to come out for a drink? You're in bed already? This early? You were asleep? Never mind. Bye.
[He phones another]
He Zhiwu, Cop 223: Chieko-san? Guess who? This is Qiwu. That's right. Want to come out for a drink? Your husband? When did you get married? Five years! Has it been that long? You have two kids! You're happy, that's great! Okay, never mind.
[He phones another]
He Zhiwu, Cop 223: Is Kong Siu-wai there? This is He Qiwu. We were classmates in grade four. You don't remember? Nothing, goodbye.

[223 leaves the store]
He Zhiwu, Cop 223: Somehow everything comes with an expiry date. Swordfish expires. Meat sauce expires. Even cling-film expires. Is there anything in the world which doesn't?
[223 gives a can of pineapple to a passing street person. The street person looks at the can and throws it on the ground]
Street person: It's expired. Don't want it.
He Zhiwu, Cop 223: You sure?

Do you... like pineapple?
