The scene opens with a discussion between the two women. The first woman, Madame Guizhou, explains that she is going to instruct her employees to place a desk in an area that she likes. She says that the gossip from her colleagues will be endless, but that she does not have to worry because she is the second wife of the family. The second woman also explains that her brother tianze wants her to join his design department so that he can select some projects for her to try first, and that she will need to familiarise herself with company procedures. The two women joke about the fact that the atmosphere at the company was too stiff, and Madame Guixia says that she just wants to make fun of her brother for being so carefree. When the desk is brought in, the first woman asks the second woman if she is able to carry the desk in first, but she is unable to do so because she has a heart attack. She tells the woman that she can just leave the desk there and bring it in herself, and the woman nods her head in agreement. The woman warns the woman not to make such a joke next time, because the company is big and there will be rumors everywhere. She explains that zheng ze came in to the office and that the consequences could be very serious.
