Fearless is lurching in the background, saying Mr. Lam's DNA will match the skin under Jo(e)y's fingernails. Wahlberg sounds horny as he tells Mr. Lam he'll have to roll up his shirtsleeves and show them the scratches he's got from her nails. Do it! Roll up the sleeves! Do it! Dammit. "Because you found the video!" Fearless shouts with a point, as if they haven't already told us this. "You found the video! You found the check! And you assumed that your daughter was being paid for sex." We know all this! "Your daughter was getting paid for tutoring, Mr. Lam," Wahlberg says, even though we know that, too. Mr. Lam says, "That's what she told me." Fearless asks why he didn't believe her. "Is there something about your life in Vietnam that you didn't want your daughter to know?" Um, does anyone else find that to be a GIGANTIC leap in logic? Fearless says when he looks around the Lam house, he sees someone who doesn't want to remember where he came from. Mr. Lam: "Many people came to America to start over." Wahlberg sits awkwardly in the background to console Mrs. Lam, who really doesn't look too upset, considering she just found out her husband hacked up her daughter with a fireplace poker. Fearless, turning this into a story about him, says that his brother went to Vietnam, and came back with lots of stories about life in Saigon. Fearless totally romanticizes these stories, saying "Saigon" like "Hogwarts." Cue the offensive Music of the Red Light Orient. Fearless goes on and on about the whores in Saigon as we see blurry footage of soldiers paying for sex with Vietnamese people. "I was afraid," Mr. Lam says. "It was somehow in her." Y'all, some jokes just write themselves, don't they? "In her genes." Hee! "That she couldn't help herself. That it was destiny. My beautiful Jo(e)y."
