Status: It's Complicated

Synopsis: Manny and Jerry have been best buddies and housemates for a long time. Manny believes that love, just like sex, should be shared with as many partners as possible. On the other hand, Jerry thinks that he should wait it out for that special someone. They decide to swap lifestyles just to prove whose theory is right.

Okay. Okay. I'll see you tonight. Bye.

Later, okay?

I'll text you.

I'll text you.

Thank you, Lord, for the good looks.

- Ma'am, sir, Yvonne will take care of your order.

- Okay.


Yes, Yvonne? What do you suggest?

Ma'am and sir, I would like to

recommend you our aphrodisiac special.

For starters,

Slow roasted tomato salad

with asparagus and black olives.

For dessert,

strawberry dipped

in deep dark devilish chili chocolate.

- We'll have that.

- All that!

Thank you.

My hips had enough!

No pain, no gain!

You want to lose weight, right?

If only boys know how we

suffer just to get their attention!

Oh, please! Do it for yourself.

Don't do it for them.

You owe it to yourself to be healthy!

Drop the hands down the oor.

Left leg fold.

- Broaden your shoulders.

- Healthy? Whatever!

At least, I'm honest.

I can endure all of these!

Just to snare a boyfriend,

-a soul mate, true love!

- Hey.

Is there still true love?

Even taho vendors don't believe

in that anymore!

Will you just concentrate!

Excuse me.

- Where's our order?

- Coming, ma'am.

Hands come to prayer

to your mind and heart center

Be well and be good. Namaste.


Excuse me. I'd just like

to follow up our order.

Corning, ma'am. Corning.

Okay. Game!

Hey girl. Mario texted.

- Mario?

- Yes.

His exhibifs opening.

Oh, Mario! Your cousin who's a triathlete

slash sculptor slash Cosmo Hunk!

You know, he's cute!

But he always makes a pass at me!

- Want to come?

- I'm up for it but I have to go home before twelve.

- Hi!

- Ate Jane's here!

You know what?! You look like

you're looking for a band!

Boom boo room boom boom!

Silly! I just came from the furniture store.

This is so heavy.

I should've left this at home.

Let's go eat?

- Buffet!

- I won't say no to that!

You'll just waste our workout?!

You'll give in for buffet?!


Ma, you turned me into a babysitter!

As if I don't have a job!

Oh! So you think this isn't a job?

Not a serious job?!

Ma, even if I don't wear a tie, long sleeves,

time-in time-out in Makati

from nine to five day-in day-out

doesn't mean this isn't a serious job!

I manage my own time. Yes!

I am my own boss! Yes!

My business is a graphic studio

and not a day care!

Here we are.

Wait. Does Dennis even know

how to wash his ass?!


Mr. lzon?

Fine, ma. I'll be there by five.

No. No.

We'll just stop by a drive thru.


- What can I do for you?

- Sylvia Alviar.

You look better than

what they said about you.

- That's why I don't listen to gossips.


- Interesting!

-I have a job for you.

Oh, I guess it's not interesting.

I'll pay you 250,000 pesos.

Now, it's interesting!

Where do you get your haircut?

Your hair looks really good!

I only had it blown by the electric fan.

I'm a fashion designer and I would like

for you to setup a website for me.

You're also a web designer, right?

- Right.

- I want it to look creative.

More interactive, if you can do that.

Aside from featuring my designs,

I want to have --

Do you really have brown eyes?

Inner is brown. Outer is gray.

Anyways, here's my calling card.

You can come to my shop

so we can discuss the details.


- I love details!

- Me too.

- So I'll see you?

- I'll see you.

- Excuse me.

- Ma'am?

- Come here.

-ls our order coming yet?

We're hungry. We're getting pale!

And the oysters, are you still

in the process of catching them?

Because they don't even have feet, right?

Ma'am, sir, I'll just check the kitchen!

Thank you.

Where's their order?!

Sir, coming, sir!

No shouting. No whining.

No touching of my things.

Clean up your own mess.

Clean up your own room.

Clean up your own toys.

Eat when I tell you to eat.

Drink when I tell you to drink.

And sleep when I tell you to sleep.


- I thought I'm going to a bachelor's pad!

Tums out, it's a convent!

You're worse than mommy!

The cleaning lady only comes once a week!

So nastiness is not allowed.

Try messing the house and I'll put you on a

sack and leave you lost in Edsa!

What am I?! A cat?!

I'm serious, Dennis.

My house, my rules.

Promise, kuya! I won't be a burden.

Just give me your wifi's password.

And wifi has time limit!

This is so corny!

Kuya! ls your pool still open?

- And why?

- Come on! Let's go for a night swimming!

Dennis! Dennis!


Kuya Manny!


Dennis! You kid --

Just 5 minutes! Wait!

-5 minutes!

- Go! Go!

Sorry, it's - It's Dennis.

Manuel's unbelievable!

Why don't he just rub it on a wall?!

Girls are tastier than a wall!

I only haven't seen you in a month

and this is what happened to you!

Nice, huh?


- Nice, you say!

- Ouch!

KJ (killjoy)!

Now, I'm the KJ one?

Bad trip! Wrong timing!

I already unhooked the strap! I'm almost there!

What is this hobbit doing here?!

Mom called to take him with me for a vacation.

Ouch. My tongue hurts.

- She bit it?

- Yes, she did!

Did she say why?

Our relatives came home.

They're from the US.

It's crazy there.

It's too crowded!

So it means this brat will stay with us?

That's right!

It would've been okay if I'm the only one

living here but the problem is you're here!

What kind of moral values will he learn?

And who's going to stay with him?

We're always out.

That's you. Not me.

Why is that?!

I'm suspended again, bro!


Me and Yvonne--!

We're not doing anything wrong!

We're just cooking!

What were you cooking?

What else? A feast from God!

You're both talking silly!

Look at what my brother's getting from you!

Hey, wait, wait. Let's drink tonight!

- That's final, okay!

- Okay, Let's go!

Come on.

Is that what you call art?

I can do that myself!

Then why didn't you do it?

Jerry hasn't said yes!

- Mario!

- Hey, Jinky!

Thank you for coming!

Gentlemen, this is my friend, Rina.

And this is my cousin, Mario.

Yeah. This is Jerry.

He's a graphic artist.

This is Manny.

- He's a chef.

- No. Manny here.

Hi. This is my brother, Dennis.


You're so cute!

Your exhibit's successful!

I see you've already sold a lot.

So treat us out!


Where do you want to go?

He said, where do you want to go, Rina?

- Anywhere!

- Wait. Where have you been?

We went to yoga then we ate out.

- Oh, okay.

- We're also into that!


Oh, eating!

Actually, we're balanced.

We're also into exercise.

Really? So what do you do for fitness?

Well, I run.

He runs after girls.


Girls run after me.

- Yes!

- I knew it.

- What?

- Oh, I mean

you're fit! Maybe that's why you run fast.

Well, actually, I'm fast about everything.

Want to see a sample?


What's your number?

Wait. I'm still thinking about it.

You know what? You don't need to

think about things such as that.

Just give it.

Which one?

Your number.

Oh, I'm still thinking where should

Mario take us for a treat!

Now, you're embarrassed!

Good morning, Aling Baday!

Aling Baday, you don't have to pretend.

I know you love seeing naked man's body!
