Bekya! You look beautiful!

I'm beautiful? Really?

- Turn around.

So beautiful!

Hi Lala!

Welcome to the family.

Thank you.

Rocco and Rocky...

you have heard the words

about love and marriage...

have exchanged your vows

and made your promises...

and celebrated your union

with the giving and receiving of rings.

It is at this time...

I now pronounce you

husband and wife.

Hey! Nitoy!



Open the door!

'Bro, get up!

- Nifoy!

Open the door!

Papsi, gel up!

Get ready! Ready?



Good morning!

What's so good about the morning?

Pay your rent now!

Maybe we can...

If you can't afford to pay your rent...

the streets are big enough!

You can live there!

Please, Pondong.

Have a heart.

Yes, Sir.

Maybe you can give us

an extension.

I would...

if your debt was just a month's rent.

But you owe me six months!

You need to pay me

by next week...

or else HI be forced

to throw you out!

Get out! Get out!

- Hello!



are you behaving well while Fm away'?

Of course I'm behaved!

Can't you just enjoy

your vacation there in Germany?

Are you all right?


you have nothing to worry about.

I'm just at home.

It's so boring here.

This is why

your father keeps getting mad at me.

He says k spoil you too much.

Well, to me, you're still the best Lala

in the whole wide world.

Digital kiss!

- Bye, Rocco!




You bad boy!


Lala, are you still there?

- So sorry, dear...

that I won't be there

for your birthday tomorrow.

My doctor says...

I still need a week to recover.

- Good morning, Sir.

What gift does my grandson want?

Well, aside from signing the release

of my trust fund tomorrow?

Dear, you'll be twenty-five.

You'll get it for sure.

Well, today is gonna be a great day.

Love you, Lala!

I love you too.

I had a hard time convincing my partners

in awarding you this project.

But I told them what you told me.

That it's about time

we try new ideas.

As you know, your father...

your fathefs company

has been producing our ads for decades now.

So they're already used to it.

Well, Uncle Cito...

I promise you

we will deliver better than his company.


they keep giving you those dramatic...

heart-to-heart ads.

It's so outdated.

I wanna show the people that...

Ahead Financial

can offer insurance better.

Quick and easy!

I just hope you don't forget

our promise to our clients...

that commitment lasts forever.

Oh, my Godson.

You're still allergic to the words

"commitment" and "forever".

I just...

I just find

those words hard to believe.

But don't worry.

We'll put that in the copy.


I'll take your word for it.


We don't normally give...

down payments...

but because you asked for it and...

because I want to support

your new production house...

I'm giving this to you.

Just be sure

you keep our timetables.

The ad is a crucial pan

of our fiftieth anniversary campaign.

Well, we won't let you down.


- Okay.

Tomorrow, I will be a very rich man!

I'm finally getting my trust fund

from Lala!

Eighty million!

- Eighty million, bro!

Cheers to that!

- Cheers!

Wait a minute.

Aren't you supposed to be in Macau

with Gretchen right now?

Dude, come on!

We broke up!


Dude, sorry to hear that.

Are you okay?

Come on!

I'm with you guys

and all these happy people.

Don't pity me!

It was bound to happen anyways.

It's over!




It was bound to happen anyway, huh?

Look, the whole relationship idea...
