The second season starts with the wedding between Ah Yat (Roger Kwok) and Ching Ching (Yeung Ling), which gets interrupted by a man who claims to be her betrothed husband and that the anklet she wears is the proof of their arranged marriage. However, it was revealed that he had killed the true man she was suppose to marry, and Ah Yuet (Dicky Cheung) eventually kills him. But from that day, Ching Ching starts to become plagued with a great pain from her anklet that was gradually growing in size and becoming a burden to her. Their best friend, Yin Pin Tin (Lau Ka Fai), refers them to a doctor who lives in the mountains. While Ching Ching got treatment, Ah Yuet meets the doctor's daughter, Siu Dip (Rain Lau), who starts to form great hatred towards him for constantly being arrogant and immature. After that, the two brothers leaves for the West Mountain to find an ax that will permanently cure Ching Ching of her pain, but the removal of the ax had then released the devil their father had trapped over 20 years ago.
And so, their second adventure starts, as Ah Yat tries to keep his violent girlfriend Ching Ching happy, Yin Pin Tin and his wife, Kong Ling (Ng Wing Hung) tries to maintain their marriage, and Ah Yuet tries to make Siu Dip his, all with the devil's involvement who tries to ruin it all and ultimately kill the two brothers. Truly a sadder but also a very comical classic series.
