Summary
  No subtitles. The daughter and son of a bean curd shop owner secretly practice the crane style, and their father is outraged at the discovery. The kids pick a fight with an official, then a trio of bullies, and a man with a blue fan comes to their aid. Later, a group of officials come to get the group, for reasons which were not clear (this detail was lost without the subtitles). The blue fan man starts to seriously woo the daughter, named Ping Ah, and they alternate between cooing and practicing crane style. This even continues into the wedding night, where the man has to get past Chia Ling's considerable defences to get his conjugals. But, wouldn't you know it, those pesky officials choose this exact moment to attack again. Damn, the newlyweds will have to cooperate against a common enemy.
