Governor Maclahose: What I'm talking is very serious corruption in Hong Kong. As much as 95% of the civil servants are involved.

Former Governor Trench: This is a bad tradition in Chinese society. They live in relationships and bribery. Anything can be solved with money. The situation is worsening and the problem is difficult to solve.

Governor Maclahose: As long as we have determination, I'll clear them once I commence work.

Former Governor Trench: What will you do if there's a rock in front of your path?

Governor Maclahose: Move it.

[He bends down to pick up a rock]

Former Governor Trench: [stops him] Be careful. There may be worms under the rock. They'll crawl on you.

Psychiatrist: You aren't working well with your colleagues, right?

Sergeant Wong Yat-Chung: Maybe I do things in another manner.

Psychiatrist: You've been married for five years, and now, suddenly your wife left you with the kids for another man. Why?

Sergeant Wong Yat-Chung: We don't match each other.

Psychiatrist: In what way?

[smiling]

Psychiatrist: In your sex life?

Sergeant Wong Yat-Chung: This is my personal matter.

Psychiatrist: Everyone calls you 'Tamerlane.' Colleagues don't work well with you. Your wife doesn't want you, and even the kids leave you. Don't you think you have a problem?

Sergeant Wong Yat-Chung: This doesn't relate to my reinstatement!

Psychiatrist: It is absolutely related. If a normal person cannot express his desire in a normal way, his character will become extreme and selfish. In addition to the emotional impact from the gun injury, I advise you to stop working temporarily and visit me each month.

Sergeant Wong Yat-Chung: I don't want to follow the bad examples of others! Is that considered abnormal?

Sergeant Wong Yat-Chung: According to psychology, a person that isn't acting normally is abnormal.

Sergeant Wong Yat-Chung: I think you're abnormal! You stupid virgin. Have you even felt the smell of a man? I'm sure you haven't even had a sexual climax before! Don't think you're a woman because you're wearing a bra! Let me tell you, I'm a real, strong man. At least I've got two kids! What have you got? Bear something out if you can!

Sergeant Wong Yat-Chung: Let me ask you a question. How much do you know about corruption in Hong Kong? You're not facing a few thousand policemen. It's a few hundred thousand civil servants and four million Hong Kong people If everyone had the habit of paying dirty money, they'll think that going by the back door is a proper thing. They all belong to the corruption group. What's the use of anti-corruption?

Sergeant Wong Yat-Chung: Let me tell you what the best way is. If he cuts you with a knife, shoot him with a gun. If he shoots you with a gun, kick him in the ass. This is a demanding war. Once you declare war, they won't let you go. We can never turn back.

[pats Brother Chiu]

Luk Tai-Chiu: Give me the chopsticks.

[Chiu hands him the chopsticks. Luk then grabs his hands and uses a pair of pliers to rip off his thumb]

Luk Tai-Chiu: I hope that this is the last unloyal finger that I cut off.

Sergeant Wong Yat-Chung: My Chinese teacher also told me that no tiger can be hit dead.

Luk Tai-Chiu: There was once a child who asked me whether he should be greedy. I said no. Tell me why the child should be greedy for such a small sum. He should instead aim at larger amounts. It's just like bathing. Just a little piss water doesn't have any meaning. Surely, it's much more pleasant to bath with large water tubes.

Sergeant Wong Yat-Chung: Now, it isn't businessmen having mutual benefits. Civil servants are doing the same. They defend for their benefits. Civil servants know the rule and offend the rule. They defend prostitution and gambling. Drugs can be sold publicly. These are the harmless effects of corruption.

Narrator: On November 17, 1974, ICAC brought back 130 policemen from the Mongkok Police Station. They were accused of corruption. Ex-Police Commissioner Gerber was led back to Hong Kong for a trial. This was the first successful action in anti-corruption. This has improved an honest atmosphere among civil servants.
