西门庆财旺升官，升官财更旺， 姻连党结， 势依豪强。更有人送童男为礼， 西门庆拥有琴童 画童 加书童。 西门庆原包养的李桂姐，放弃青楼歌女， 宁做西门庆干女儿， 乘轿送礼拜西门庆正妻月娘做干娘。傍大款，傍大官。
Ximen’s money leads him to power; power leads him to super riches. People are drawing to him for marriage, friendship, politics and power. Some officers send Ximen boys as gifts, now Ximen has musical boy, painting boy and library boy. Li Gui-jie, Ximen’s prostitute that he owns, doesn’t want to be a prostitute anymore. She visits Ximen, bringing gifts to Ximen’s first wife to be her goddaughter. People lean on the rich; people lean on the power.
