Me: Kaya benta yung movie, kasi for once, mas romantic yung guy. Tapos yung girl wala lang, parang sex nga lang yung gusto niya kay Tom eh.
Macy: Buti nalang gwapo si Tom, kung hindi parang ang weak niya na nakakainis. Ang laking help talaga pag gwapo.

Me: Buti nalang di na niya vinerbalize sa film. Ang unromantic kung sinabi pa yan. Ok na na ginawa nalang nilang vague yung reason niya for leaving him.
