becca: Ack! That ugly dog is back!
Mary: Manduuuuuuu <3
becca: I wouldn't really want to think about a dude's junk being cut off while I was eating, either.
Manbo informs Chang-man that all is taken care of in the causa Min-kyu. Chang-man is grateful (and Manbo is always boasting, whatever he says, right? Pretty much. Sometimes it's cute; sometimes it's not.). Anyway, Manbo then insists that Chang-man has to tell everybody they know inside and outside the colatec that it's Madame's birthday the next day. He needs to call them personally, not texting. Oh Manbo ….
becca: Ohhh, this is awkward.
becca: This is why you don't have friend, Gye-pal!!
Mary: *cough*FYI, my birthday is on November.*cough*
When Chang-man leaves, Misses Curly gives him a bouquet of 100 roses that someone delivered for Madame. It's from a law firm. Oh! I remember something! This is from a certain family member, right?
becca: I think it is~! Also, wow. That's a pretty bouquet.
Mary: What if it's from a hotel CEO in Jeju???
(When she's not clinging to Chang-man or being bitchy to Yoo-na, I do like her.) (She's an awesome Unni and daughter.) We learn that indeed, the flowers are from Da-yung's aunt (snooping much, Chang-man?). Madame's younger sister who became a prosecutor. I'm a bit too lazy to go back and see when she was first mentioned ... but I think it was when Madame talked about Gye-pal and why she feels responsible for him?
becca: Yes, we'd heard her name a couple of times before that, but we got the full story about little sister Gye-suk in episode 16 (wow, that feel like a long time ago).
Chang-man also asks Da-yung about her date tomorrow (why would he?! Chang-man! Leave the girl alone!) and she tells him that Yong-geun is only so-so - but she's excited about the play they're going to see. It's one of her favorites. Because Chang-man claims to be "a bit" jealous, Da-yung promises to take him to see it one day.
becca: Please stop encouraging her, Chang-man. Don't be so nice - it only makes it harder. :(
The three semi-successful Min-kyu punishers are at the café, where Mi-sun hears a lot of praise for Yoo-na from Yoon-ji. She has tremendous standing in the field of pickpocketing, for her skills, loyalty, and humanity - all the juniors want to follow her. That just means that they wish for her to grow old in prison, says Yoo-na, because they want her to keep doing what she is doing until it's too late.
becca: *sigh* Oh, Manbo. I'm glad Madame and Gye-suk are at least going to try to make up, though.
becca: Whoa. That crosses the line from disapproval-town to crazy-ville. O____o
Mary: I'm keeping mum about Gye-suk for now, because spoilers. :|
becca: Aw, and they are very opposed to the girls getting kicked out. What loyal fellows you are!
In the car, Yoo-na and Mi-sun discuss the matter of Min-kyu's money. For Yoo-na, leaving him a few bones would be the right thing to do. Mi-sun agrees to give back W10 million.
becca: Which is W5 million less than he demanded. I hope he doesn't make a fuss over it.
becca: Here's an idea, ladies. Instead of pointlessly arguing over who is worse, how about trying to be better people? I know you have it in you!
becca: Awww, and thank you, Manbo. That must have been hard, but it meant the world to Madame.
Mary: Awwww give that little man a hug!!!
Next up, Yoo-na meets Nam-su with two pickpocket girls (one of them Yoon-ji), who want to go to Japan to try their luck (they call it a "Business trip" :). Yoo-na is not interested. She also tells them that the exchange rate is shit and that they need to learn more before going. (Pssst, I think Nam-su should have a much bigger role) (I would not be opposed to this, either) (OMFG HE'S GORGEOUS. KAKASHI KNOWS HOW TO BAIT ME WITH HER PIC CHOICES.)
becca: Eeek! Check for you wallet before ordering, dummy! I cringe with every sip and bite they take.
becca: Pwahaha! She becomes shameless in the presence of yummy food!
becca: Um. Maybe you should work out your own family problems before preaching at Yoo-na, Chang-man.
CommentsUh-oh, mother is coming!
I'm really hungry now because of how they praised the fish. And I do hope Chang-man gets to eat some of it himself!
And the family-reunion scene made me cry.
becca: I will admit to tearing up, too. I'm so happy for Madame that she finally has all her family together - she still deserves all the hugs.
Mary: Omigod here comes the mom-drama... *hugs jorjeous Namsu pic close* For comfort! For comfort, I swears!
