CJ, You didn’t tell us your girlfriend lives in a mall. They’re so rich! I hope they’re not arrogant. Please take a seat. The master and the mistress will be down shortly. The guests have arrived. Cue in the master In 3, 2, 1… Action! Ssshhh! What? Hello! The Salazar family! Finally… we meet! Welcome! Good morning. Good morning, Uncle. Good morning. Uncle? You can call me daddy already, CJ. Your sisters are all beautiful. But I thought you brought your mom? Where is she? I’m Grace. CJ’s mom. Oh, come on. You must be kidding. Stop joking around. She looks just like your sister. Welcome, Grace. I’m Honey Boy. You can call me Honey but my wife would prefer you call me Boy. Just Boy. Okay, Boy. Let me introduce my sisters, Uncle. This is Gabbie. Good morning, sir. The old maid. Hi, sir. I’m Alex. Ahh… The black sheep of the family. This is Teddie. The maid in Spain. Maid? That is absurd! She is an English tutor of the godchild of the cousin of the king of Spain! Am I right? Oh. What I meant is… Made in Spain. By the way, I’m-
I’m Bobbie. The New Yorker. Let me guess. You’re a caregiver? I am a Corporate Communications Manager. I am required to have an extensive vocabulary so I never use inane and poorly worded language like black sheep and old maid to describe the people I just met. Roberta. Wow. I think my nose is going to bleed anytime. But, intelligent. I’m Tristan Harris. Bobbie’s boyfriend. And this is my daughter Trixie. Oh. I think my nose will bleed more from the accent. And they’re Manang and Toti… Introductions are over! Cue in the mistress in 3, 2, 1! Bonjour! Hello! Welcome to my humble home! Hello, hello, hello! Hi, Auntie. I’m Jeanette. Hello, Janet. Oops. No. Not Ja-net. It’s Jea-nette. They’re different. Jea-nette. Where’s Princess, Auntie? Speaking of the devil. The devil is here! Descended from the rare line of beauty queens, shining, shimmering, splendid, the one and only! Hello, my Love. Princess Antoinette Mae Bayag. Oh, you should see the church. It’s so divine! And on the day of the wedding, It will be filled with the colors of the rainbow. Rainbow is the theme? No. That will be the motif of the entourage. The theme is under the sea. That would be really nice since Princess and CJ met on a cruise. Really, under the sea? You’re joking, right? Or are you serious? Of course. Do I look like I’m joking? This is my serious face. And this is my joking face. (Laughs hysterically) Since the theme is under the sea, My Princess will be the beautiful mermaid while her entourage and bridesmaids will be the sea creatures under the sea. What? Huh? Quick! You’ll see. Here. Jellyfish-inspired. Starfish. Seahorse and octopus. It’s beautiful, right? Isn’t that a little too much, Jeanette? A little? Yes, a little. No. It’s not a little. It’s really too much. You look worried, huh. You don’t need to worry. Pedring will handle it. Pedring Magbutay is my couturier since my beauty queen days. Just one look at the photos CJ sent to him, and he already knows all your measurements. So our gowns are all done? Yes. Everything seems to be all set. What more can we contribute? As I’ve said, We’ll handle everything. Money’s not an issue. At least, not for us. Oh. So you’re saying that money’s an issue for us? I didn’t say anything like that, hija. Is that what you think? Now you may think it like that. Sassa, The prenup, please. What’s this, daddy? I didn’t know about this, Love. I hope you understand, CJ. You know, what you earn in a month is something we earn in just an hour. There’s a possibility that you cannot support the lifestyle Princess is used to. Umm, excuse me, sir. What do you think is CJ going to do to Princess? Do you think he’s a gold digger? It’s not like that. We never know what could happen. I just don’t want our daughter to end up losing. Lose? In our case, it hasn’t even started yet CJ’s already lost. Ates, Mom, It’s okay. I have good intentions. You should have. Grandpa! Mano po (A gesture of respect to the elderly). Mano po. CJ! Always remember what I told you. Take good care of my granddaughter. Or else I’ll come back from the dead to haunt you. Grandpa? Grandpa! Grandpa! Are you okay? Water! Get some water! Faster! Auntie! Call an ambulance! Wait a minute! Faster! Gotcha! You’re such a joker, dad.
