https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0095542/quotes - the cast and characters were recently updated, so their names should be reflected in the quotes section (the quotes were submitted sometime beforehand).

Slightly different to this issue, I believe: https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/character-not-appearing-in-quotes-pulldown

Hi Chen,

Thanks for your message, which characters are you referring to? When were the credits added?

Regards,
Will

The character options that appear in the drop-down menu in the submission interface for adding quotes are outdated: https://contribute.imdb.com/updates?update=tt0095542:quotes.add.1.

The names can be edited in the quote submission form (choose "Other").

Character names for quotes can differ from the cast list, by design.

Good point about by design.

Jimmy Lee and Andy (or Andy Yau, as it was on your entry) were the English-dubbed names; Lei Kwok-Lap and Yau respectively are how they appear in the end credits and how they sound in the Cantonese version.

The credits were updated about a week ago.

Hi Chen -

Thanks for confirming the character names, it's likely that the data is stuck in our system and needs to be pushed through.  I have filed a ticket for our technical team to investigate the cause and a fix, as soon as I have an update on the status I will let you know here.
