The banquet hall is full of people gathered to witness the wedding of the eldest son and daughter of the Xu family and the daughter and son of the Yao group. The narrator tells us that this is the first time that we've seen the engagement of a member of the family. He says that the young man is a "bastard" and that his mother will fight him if he gets married. He tells the audience that he's heard that young men have to collect trash in order to survive. He also tells them that they need to test their paternity if they're going to have a child. He warns them that if they raise a child that isn't theirs, they'll have to take a paternity test.
