Your boyfriend's a lucky man.

You're really something.


Because that's not what

my boyfriend would say.

You know me.

I mean what I say.

You're just saying that

because l'm drunk and you're drunk...


How many times do I have to tell you?

You're kind, intelligent, beautiful.

Who wouldn't fall for you?

You're just being nice.

Thank you.

Thank you.

Thank you for listening.

What the-!

What do you think you're doing?!



This is so embarrassing.


I'm sorry Helen.

You know I love Basha.

I know-

that's why I knew you wouldn't do it.

But I thought you wanted to-

I have a boyfriend- Popoy!


But you said you are no longer

happy with him.

What I said was I wanted

to change my life!

Yes! That's why we're here!

- That's why I got us a room.

- What?!

I never said I wanted

to have sex with you!

I said I need to take a dump

and throw up!

You said you had a room here

we could use!

But to have sex with you?!


Go home! Go!

We're still friends, right?

Of course!

Besides you did way

more embarrassing stuff in high school.

Shh... could we not go there?


Can you not tell Basha about this?

Of course!

You know Poy,

I think Basha's good for you.

Poy, please. Pick up please...

How dare you!

Basha wait...

Basha! Your jacket!

Nothing happened!

Nothing happened believe me.


Sorry! I was at work.


Chinno, code red. Basha and Popoy!

Just let them break up.

Why? What is it this time?

Hi hon!



Hon, can you please call Popoy.

What happened this time?

Hello Ken! I need a drink.

Poy are you okay?

Where are you?




I'II just get beer.

Dude, want us to beat him up?

Already did.

Let's beat him up again.

We'll do it 'til you ain't pissed anymore.

He's the guilty one

and he has the nerve to get mad!

Maybe he didn't do anything wrong.

What if he did?

But I didn't!

Dude, are you blind?

It's Helen!

She's hot!

If I had a best friend like her-

You'd go for her?

Why not?

Isn't that why

you brought her to the hotel?

Jackass! That's where she's staying.

The three of us were supposed

to have dinner...

but Basha had to be a drama queen.

For five years I was either

the welcoming committee...

or planner of Helen's farewell parties.

Did I ever complain about it?



I just asked him to be there

for me this one time...

because l'm so mad at my boss

but did he go with me?


Then he cheats on me!

Bash, it's Popoy.

He can't stand the thought of hurting you.

Maybe it was all friendly.

It's Basha, after all!

Maybe she just needed someone to talk to.

- In a hotel?!?

- In a hotel?

Sorry dude, go ahead.

If they needed to talk...

they didn't have to get

a hotel room for it.

Poy, do you honestly believe that?

I don't know.

Then just stop acting

so jealous of Helen.

Why don't you just explain to Popoy

how you ended up at in the hotel room?

But he never listens to me.


Whenever we have a problem...

he always has to be right

and l'm always wrong.

Because you let him get away with it.

Because I love him.

If that's the case...

then just apologize to each other

so we can go on with the wedding.

Are you okay?

Why should I say sorry

when I didn't do anything wrong?

Right! Basha betrayed him!

Knowing you...

Poy, you can't stand

being away from her too long.

Just forgive her.

This way man...

It's her fault! She should say sorry.


Poy! Poy!

This is why they always fight.

How can she get married

to someone so possessive?




He never listens!


He just loves her very much.

It's suffocating.



- Popoy's on his way down.

- More beer? I'll get it!

Don't let him come down.

We have a call of nature.

Dude this is your night!

Let me do it. Let's just talk about it.

And most of all controlling!

Who's controlling?


Basha, you're the stubborn one!

I told you to come with me!

But you refused!

Because you had a date with Francis?!?

Popoy, Francis and l

didn't do anything wrong!

- We didn't do what you think we did!

- And what were you doing there?

Thumb wrestling?!

Wait, wait. Let's talk about this.

He just accompanied Basha

when you chose to go with Helen.

And because it was Francis' birthday,

he treated her out for dinner.

But she ate too much steamed crab

and she so badly needed to take a dump.

Luckily, Francis had a free room

in the hotel...

and he let Basha use his bathroom.

Basha, if you're going to lie,

might as well be good at it.

Poy, can you listen to Basha first?

Why don't you try to understand her?

And who understands you? Francis?!?

You know what Poy, this is pointless...


Come on Basha! Just say it.

Want to break up? Fine!

Let's break up!


I'm sure we can still fix this Poy.

Now do you believe her?

Where are you going?

What are you doing?


You can't take this.

It's my favorite.

I want it as a souvenir.

That toothbrush is mine. I bought it.


And these? These are mine, right?

I had those developed.

Fine! Take it.

Wait, wait, wait!

This is mine.

That's mine.

You gave it to me as an anniversary

gift which makes it mine.

Fine! It's all yours!

We're already breaking up

and you still want to be in control.

Bash, that's enough.

Love you.

Love you too.

I heard that.

- Popoy.

- Come on, that's enough.
