Stop. Stop!

Derek Derek Derek.

[clears throat]

- Sorry dude.

- Hey buddy.

You must be the new roommate.

- What's your-

- Mark.

Mark, I'm Derek.

This is my girlfriend Erika.



Sorry, sorry...

Just continue...

I will uh...

leave you two alone now.

Alright, I'll see you later tonight, right?

You're not going to leave me

alone on Valentine's Day, are you?

Of course not baby.

Call me.

See you.


You're going to interrupt me having fun with

my girlfriend and not bother to say hi?

I'm sorry.

I will just get my other stuff,

I left some behind.

Go get that later, sit down

for a minute. Let's talk.

You can understand Tagalog?

Yeah, somehow. Why?


Do I look like a foreigner?

Actually yes, you look like an American.


My dad is.

I'm ???? actually.

Take a seat let's talk!




Me and my ex-roommate had

something of an arrangement.

What kind of arrangement?

Every time we had a girl over we would make

sure we put a sock on the door so that

the other guy wouldn't walk in

on us like you just did.

So, it's my fault now.

Walk in.

Do you have a problem with that?

No, no, no it's okay.

No, I don't have a problem with that.


So we're okay?

Yep, that's it.

Okay then,

I'm late for class.

[door closes]


[fans blowing]




Now, what?

You thought it's gonna be Alex, huh?

What the f***?

You know I'm preparing a song for Alex!

You stink!

I stink?

You armpit stinks!


Are you sure? Maybe you

want to take another sniff.

You really stinky!

Did you even take a bath?


Oh maybe -

Seriously, get off me!

Alright, so maybe a little.

So you did take a bath!

I may or may not remember

taking a bath this morning.

But wow, the fact that you

thought of taking a bath...

I thought-

Yeah! But still that's something different.

So it means you are that serious about Alex.

Yeah, yeah of course.

I am serious about Alex for sure.

Well it looks like you are

because you bought her balloons and pillows

And you asked me to write a song

and you are going to sing

her that song, in Tagalog.

But you suck in speaking Tagalog.


I made an effort, how's that?

That's what I'm saying.

I'm better than last year, you must admit.

I have progress.

That's it, you put effort.

And yes, I bought balloons.

We have practiced the song.

And she's going to love

it because I love her.

- You love her?

- I love her.

Oh. Oh.

Oh my!

And thank you also, cause it wouldn't

have been half as special as it's gonna be

if it weren't for the song.

Thank you.


But please make sure,

you will never hurt Alex.


You're... I'm serious about her.

I'm serious about her this time.

Yeah I know I know.

But see, Alex is my friend.

I don't want you messing this up cause

this could cost us our friendship.

Maybe all the things I've done

for her will be wasted

just because you can't

stick to your relationship.

I am actually serious

about this one this time.

Okay whatever but I've heard

that 1,000 times before.

How many times did you say that?

So how many girls?

Okay, okay.

Let's do

the Math.

When was the first time

you said you're serious?


To Erika...


Erika did not give me anywhere

near enough space and I thought

Space! Okay space! Okay fine.

Let's go to Sandra.

Now with Sandra, she was

in a political party so,

basically she was really busy.

You only see each other for two weekends.
