In this short scene, we learn that Charles is on his way to a roadside stall to pick up a "bitter gourd" from a roadside vendor. He's disappointed that the gourd is so ugly, but he doesn't want to throw it in the bushes because it's "so hard to find" . He tells us that he's here because he heard that Linda is getting married. She's been in a previous relationship for six years, but she's finally found the "right person" , and she'll be getting married soon. Charles says that "love" and "pain" are the same thing. He says that love is doomed to fail, but that he can still be friends if he and Linda break up.
