A Love to Remember (2023) Movie Script

Hello, honey. How's your day?
Hello, Mom. Is Dad there?
I have something to tell you both.
- Ah... Yes, he is.
- Hey, hon.
- Hi, Dad.
- What's up?
I've just been accepted
into Princeton and Brown.
Oh, my God! That's wonderful!
Well done. Well done.
We are so proud of you.
But I don't know which one to pick yet.
Well, th-there's no rush.
You can... You can decide later.
We can talk about it later if you want.
Okay, Mom, I've got to go.
I'll call you back later.
I love you, Mom.
- I love you too, baby.
- Love you, hon.
Wow. Two Ivy League schools.
We have to go out and celebrate.
Maybe dinner later?
Um, not tonight.
I have meetings till about six
and maybe seven.
Well, we can eat late.
I'll make a booking for eight.
No, I'm not sure.
See, after my meetings,
I have to see the interior decorator.
Yeah. It was the only time
she had available.
Okay, another time then.
Sorry, hon.
I'll see you later, okay?
I'm off.
Pick up the phone, Abike.
Hello? No one is available
to take your call. Ple...
Are you still in bed?
No, I'm enjoying the beautiful scenery
and drinking coffee.
I have some exciting news.
Simi got accepted
into Princeton and Brown.
Isn't that great?
Oh! That's amazing news.
She's always been so clever,
Simi, your girl.
I know, right?
So, what are you doing later today?
Want to meet up later?
Oh! That sounds like a good idea.
Let's meet at your lounge.
Stop it!
- Hello.
- Hello.
I'll call you later.
Osas! No, no, wait wait wait.
Is Dante there?
What's the occasion?
Can't I make breakfast for my girl?
All right, then. What do you really want?
Why is it that every time I do something
nice or something romantic for you,
you just assume that I want something?
Don't even answer that. Have a good day.
Hey, Ivy.
Hey. Someone's looking fresh.
- Thank you. You don't look bad yourself.
- Thank you.
I ordered you a drink, by the way.
No, I'm not drinking.
Why? What's wrong?
Nothing. Why would anything be wrong?
Osas, tell me what it is.
I think I messed up
this morning when you called.
I thought he wanted money.
Oh, my God, no you didn't.
You know what these young boys...
When they're with
a much older woman who has money,
the only question on their mind is,
"Can I have some?"
- I messed up, didn't I?
- You think?
Okay, I know. I'll send him some more.
Osas, you said that you think that
offering him money was the problem?
Now you want to pay him off.
But who doesn't like money for an apology?
I would.
Oh, my God!
Why do you think that's
the solution to all of your problems?
You have a problem
with men who have minds of their own.
- No, I don't.
- Oh, really?
Over the last six months,
you've dated three different guys.
They can't all have the same problem.
Sure? Have you been there, mama?
I know that with relationships,
it's all fun and games.
I know. I enjoy that.
But with Dante...
he gets me.
- And Dante gets you?
- Mm-hmm.
Is Dante the "more"
you've been looking for?
And much more.
So, how is he in bed?
I can't complain.
Oh, God? Ivy.
I think I'm falling...
...with Dante.
I don't know.
I get butterflies in my stomach.
Oh, my God! Are you sure?
Yes and no.
I just...
I just want to be
the only thing on his mind.
And for him to look
at you like he used to.
But I thought this was meant
to be a celebratory drink?
So how is Simi taking the news?
Have you told Abike?
- Yes. Simi, Simi's very excited.
- Oh, God!
Abike is not answering her phone.
I think we should go see her.
The news about Simi would cheer her up.
Yeah, I think she should stop mourning.
- He was a good man, though.
- Yes, he was.
I'm worried about her.
Me too.
So should we go? What do you think?
You think?
She'd do it for us.
Okay. Sure.
Aha! I thought as much.
Good day, ladies.
- Hi.
- Hi.
Osas, I was wondering
if you've heard from... Abike.
She's not taking
or returning any of my calls.
Welcome to our club.
You guys are good friends.
Can you talk to her for me?
Ah, sure. What about, exactly?
The situation
at the company's getting real bad
and the board members
are kind of concerned.
Don't they realize
her husband recently passed?
- Osas!
- Look, I get it. I really do.
But she's now responsible
for the company and hundreds of staff.
I know. And it's a huge responsibility.
She just needs time to be prepared for it.
I just want to make sure she's okay.
Then, also, I have this
quarterly shareholder report.
I need her to approve and sign
some legal documents as well.
Okay. So once we've spoken to her,
I will let you know what the situation is.
I appreciate that.
- Have a good day. Bye.
- You too.
Was that just me?
He cares for her a bit too much
than he's letting on.
- No, he's just doing his job.
- I know men.
I know you know men.
- Thank God you're here.
- Sam Cook.
She hasn't come out of
her room or eaten in days.
- I'm worried.
- Take us upstairs.
Thank you.
- Abike. It's Osas.
- And Ivy.
You weren't taking our calls.
So here we are.
Come on, Abike.
It's just us.
Open the door.
Maybe we can go out
and get some lunch or something.
She doesn't eat too.
I've tried everything.
Open the door. Are you going
to leave Ivy and I out here?
- Osas!
- What?
Remember how long it took you to leave
your husband, Ikao or whatever?
It wasn't that kind of party.
Just take it easy on her.
All right? You give it a... Give it a go.
I know it's hard and you're all alone.
But we're here for you,
because we care, honey.
Open the door, please.
Okay. What do we do now?
Maybe I can make you lunch while you wait.
No, we can't be out here eating
when she's in there all alone.
- Wait.
- What?
She won't be on her own.
We'll be right here with her.
Excellent idea, Sam. Fix us lunch.
- Right away.
- Thank you.
It's going to be a picnic.
Do you remember this guy?
What's his face?
The one that said he could only
date a girl during the dry season.
I think he had man boobs.
No, Lawrence. It was Lawrence.
Was it Lawrence? Yes.
- Osas.
- Very foolish man.
Then he would be singing:
I will never forget you
- But you didn't seem to mind then, though.
- No, not at first.
He was, uh...
I think he and I found somewhere...
something in common,
if you know what I mean.
Obviously. You're crazy, Osas, I swear!
Terry, Terry, Terry.
He was good.
I thought he was clairvoyant.
And then he'd just text me
and he'd touch me in the night...
Okay, okay. I get the picture.
It's just memories.
What about you and Dekunle?
What about us?
I could hardly peel you away from him
when you first got together.
Yeah, well, I was...
At some party.
You guys would run away,
you'd go missing for hours,
and then when you turned up,
your hair's all rough, undone.
You think we don't know
what you were up to, right?
Poison ivy.
And now we're just...
We're just two people living together,
occupying the same space.
- But you do love each other.
- Of course we do.
I just keep feeling like
we're drifting apart somehow.
I don't know.
I don't know.
Doctor Osas thinks
that you need to get back on that horse
and remind it what it has.
I guess.
I just never thought that I'd still have
these feelings after Simi came along.
It happens.
Why do you think I date only younger men?
- I don't know, for the sex?
- No, certainly not the sex.
Not the sex.
It's, um...
to make me feel young.
And I like that feeling.
Osas, you don't need a man
to make you feel that way.
You're beautiful, accomplished,
an intelligent woman all on your own.
That I am. Yes.
Ivy, that I am.
I think Dekunle
is just overworked and stressed.
So I think you need
just to sneak up behind that man,
take what belongs to you
and show him who's boss.
Osas, you dirty freak.
I did want to have a celebratory dinner
with him tonight because of Simi.
- Mm-hmm.
- But he was working late.
Oh. I'm sorry, babe.
You'd think that he'd at least
want to celebrate
our daughter getting into not one,
but two Ivy League universities.
Can you believe it?
Yes. My little Simi
got into Brown and Princeton!
Yes. Yes.
And you're an amazing mother.
Go with Princeton.
Tyrone is an alumni,
and we have a house in New Jersey.
She can always stay there.
There she is.
- Hey, you.
- Hey.
How are you holding up?
It's been hell, but...
I'm holding on.
- You look like shit.
- Osas.
- What?
- It's always good to hear opinions, Osas.
That's why you love me.
Sam says you haven't
had anything to eat in days.
You look good, Osas.
- How is, uh, what's his name?
- Dante.
Stop deflecting.
You haven't eaten in days.
We should go out and grab a bite.
No, no, not today.
Tomorrow, I promise.
I'll hold you to that.
No problem.
- Yeah.
- Oh.
- Zenom wanted us...
- Ooh!
...to pass on a message.
Something about
the company board of directors
needing you to sign documents.
Yeah, I know.
I'll get to it eventually.
- Call me if you need anything. Okay?
- I will.
- Day or night.
- Sure.
I love you.
- I love you girls.
- I love you.
- Yeah.
- Those have to go.
Yeah, I will.
All right, that's it. Bye.
I'm not leaving.
I should ask him to pack me food.
The customer you are calling is busy.
Pick up the damn phone, Dante.
Dante, Dante, Dante...
"If you are working...
I am working too."
Let's see what you are doing.
And so finally she opened the door.
Poor thing, she looked like
she hadn't bathed in days.
- Yeah.
- She did just lose her husband.
I know.
Oh, Zenom was there.
I think a lot of big problems
happen with the company.
But he seemed more worried about her.
Yeah. He would be.
What's that supposed to mean?
Well, I'm just saying,
he would be concerned.
After all, she is a new boss, isn't she?
A lot of people's lives
depend on what she does next.
You're right. I'm just...
concerned that she might be
dwelling in her grief.
She did say that
she would join us tomorrow.
Yeah, that's nice.
So enough about that. How was your day?
The usual.
Long meetings, terrible traffic.
Nothing important.
- Come on, Ivy, please. Not tonight.
- Come on.
I'm super tired.
No, seriously, seriously.
I have a long day at the office tomorrow.
Good night.
Good night.
Where are you going?
I need a drink.
You remember this dress?
You bought it for me on our anniversary,
and we took a stroll on the beach,
and you got pooped on by a sea gull.
We had so much fun, didn't we?
Yeah. I'm sure of that...
I'll be there.
Okay, Abike, love you. Goodbye.
Why do you keep staring at your phone?
He didn't come home last night.
Who? Dante?
Yes. Dante.
God, Osas. He was probably
working late and slept at the office.
I mean, people do that.
I don't buy it.
- Look at the photos.
- Are you trying to kill us both?
He's having a great time
taking photos with models.
And now...
The little shit.
He's not picking my calls
or answering my phone calls.
God, Osas. Stop being so paranoid.
I'll call him again
and you'll see that he's not picking.
No answer.
To friends.
- To new beginnings.
- Hear, hear.
To always being there for each other.
- Cheers.
- Cheers.
I can't believe it.
- What?
- He returned it.
What did you expect?
What's going on?
Oh! It's, uh, Osas' new toyboy, Dante.
Uh, they're having a... how can I put this?
They're not quite seeing eye to eye.
He'll be very lucky
if he ever sees me again.
Why? What happened?
Well, Osas thinks that she can
throw money and solve all her problems.
How else do you apologize
to a man, to say you're sorry?
Yesterday he was
at a photoshoot with models,
not to mention the fact
that he didn't come home last night.
So Osas got very paranoid
and started acting like a stalker.
And that was the icing on the cake.
Wait, wait, uh...
- This is too much to take in.
- Yeah.
Whatever happened to... what's his name?
I... No, it was Lawrence.
Lawrence, yes.
No talk about man boobs today.
You know, I'm focused on the future,
and the past I'm leaving behind. Okay?
Yeah, so, Abike, how are you holding up?
Yeah, my love life is not interesting.
So yes, tell us about you.
I'm, you know,
just taking each day as it comes.
- Well, at least you're here.
- Yeah.
And we're glad you're here.
I mean, it must be hard being home alone.
Yes, it is.
Sometimes I find myself talking to Tyrone
as if he were there
in the room with me, you know?
It's silly. I know.
Oh, no, not at all.
You lost your husband.
And it must be hard and...
which is why we're here for you.
Whatever you need.
Day or night.
Right, Osas?
- Right, Osas?
- Yes, yes, yes.
Thanks, girls. Thank you.
Oh, unfortunately, I have to rush off.
Thank you.
Dekunle... surprising him with lunch.
Oh, you go, lover.
There you go.
I'll try.
- See you.
- See you.
- Take care.
- Take care.
We'll be right behind you.
Abike. It's good to see you.
So... when are you going
to get your hair done?
I met with the girls today for lunch.
Osas has a new toy boy.
Or is it boy toy?
Or whatever it's called.
You know what she's like.
Oh, and Ivy's daughter Simi
got accepted to two Ivy League schools.
Isn't that amazing?
I told her to go with Princeton.
I know how fond you were of that place.
That reminds me.
I said I would call Dekunle to tell him.
Hi, Dekunle. How are you?
Sorry, he can't come
to the phone right now.
Who's this?
Please give Dekunle the phone.
He's out. Can I take a message?
Hey, Abike.
How are you? Did you get home okay?
Um... are you at Dekunle's office yet?
Yes, I'm just outside now.
You need to come to my house right now.
Why? What's wrong? Are you okay?
Ivy, please, just come. I need you.
- Okay? Let me drop off his lunch first...
- No.
I need you right this minute.
Okay? Okay. Okay, I'm coming, I'm coming.
Hold on.
I came as fast as I could. What's wrong?
What is it? You can tell me anything.
I had such a great time
at lunch, you know?
Hanging with you guys.
Yeah. I did too.
For a moment, I forgot about the pain.
I just didn't want to be alone.
Hey. Come here.
It's okay.
I'm here for you.
Yeah. I just want the pain to go away.
I know, I know.
Listen, I have a fantastic idea.
Why don't we go to Osas' spa?
We can chill, we can have
a good gossip, and cry even.
- Yeah.
- Yeah.
And Dekunle's lunch is still in the car.
It's not like he's going to be needing it.
- Hmm?
- Okay.
Okay. Why don't you get your things?
Okay, let's go.
I should call Dekunle
and apologize for not showing up.
Why bother? He's a big boy.
But I feel bad about not showing up.
I sent several messages,
but he didn't respond.
Tyrone didn't pick my calls all the time,
but he always called me back
once he saw my text messages.
So I think you should send him
a text message.
Okay, I will. Thank you.
Okay, Osas.
You clearly have something to say.
What is it? Spit it out.
What is it this time?
This is not Dante.
He's constantly posting photos
on social media,
and he won't return my calls.
So you're stalking his social media?
It's there for everyone to see.
He calls himself my boyfriend,
yet he won't return my calls.
Where are you going?
I know where he is,
and I know what he's doing.
So I'm joining him.
But he's working.
Does this look like work to you?
Does this?
Certainly not.
Wow. I can't believe that Osas,
who didn't care about men,
is the one losing her mind
and going crazy over a younger guy.
Yeah, well, a lot has happened
since you were...
you know.
Yeah, I see that.
You know, these men,
they'll do things to drive us crazy.
This is not going to end well.
Hey, what are you doing here?
Hey, why aren't you returning my calls?
Okay, um... I was going to call you,
but I've been busy with work.
Yeah, I see why you are so busy.
- Don't do that.
- Do what?
Don't turn this around.
I'm the one who's supposed
to be pissed at you, so don't do that.
Where were you last night?
I was at the studio. Yeah, I was working.
It was late and I...
Wait, wait. You don't believe me?
No, it's fine. Believe whatever you want.
Yeah. I have to get back to work.
Don't walk out on me.
I was expecting an apology, Osas.
And obviously that is not happening,
so I should just go.
Dante, don't.
It is obvious you're not
taking us or my feelings seriously.
- Your feelings?
- Yes, my feelings.
What about my feelings?
- Am I strutting around with models?
- This is my job, Osas!
Get another job.
You know what? I'm not gonna do this now.
I can't do this now.
I have to get back to work.
...embarrass me
in front of people every time.
I'm not yet ready for that, Tyrone.
I mean, the girls are going crazy.
And the funny thing is,
they're worried about me.
Can you imagine?
When their lives are blowing up
in front of them and they don't even rea...
Hi, Abike.
I popped around earlier.
They told me that you were out.
How are you today?
I'm okay. I'm just tired.
Okay. Have you had a chance
to look over the papers?
Yeah. Look, Zenom.
I don't have the time right now
to worry about such things.
Please, Abike, I know you're in
a bad place, but it's really important.
Fine. I'll take a look.
Thank you. I was...
Show him who's boss.
Come to mommy.
Let's get it on.
Hey, how's Abike?
Abike's fine.
Nothing. I mean, I saw
a missed call from her earlier,
but... I didn't remember to call her back.
Oh, sh-she's good.
As... as good as anyone
that just lost their husband can be.
Oh. Right.
She had... She had fun at lunch.
I told her about Simi, and she said
she thinks Princeton is a better choice.
Oh. Have you told Simi yet?
No, I was going to call her later
to find out what she thinks.
Oh, okay.
how was your day?
Too long.
Ivy, please.
I've had one hell of a day today, okay?
I'm thirsty.
So am I.
- Good morning, ma'am.
- Morning, Sam.
- How are you feeling today?
- I'm good.
Hungry, mostly.
Breakfast will be ready soon.
You know what?
Let me do it. You just sit down and rest.
Okay, um...
- I'll get that.
- Okay.
Hey, you.
Hey. What a nice surprise!
Making some breakfast. Want some?
- No. I'll pass.
- Okay.
I'm here to ask if you want
to go shopping with me.
Osas, what's the problem?
Nothing. Why does everyone keep asking
that every time I want to go shopping?
Because I know you.
And I know that the only time
you want to go shopping
is when something
is bothering you or you're angry.
You're right.
you are right.
I am bothered.
I am bothered about men and the fact
that they can never see beyond their noses
and only ever think about their emotions
and feelings and no one else's.
Yes, so I am bothered.
That's it.
How did it go yesterday with Dante?
You should have seen him strutting around
with those skinny ass models at the park.
Tarts, the lot of them.
Give me a second.
Morning, Zenom.
Good morning, Abike.
How are you doing?
I'm good. Making breakfast.
Breakfast is good.
I was wondering if now would be
a good time to walk you through the...
life insurance letter
from custodian in general.
Actually, now is not a good time.
I'm going shopping with Osas,
so I'll be unavailable.
- Thank you.
- Abike, wait.
- I guess we're going shopping.
- Yes, let's.
Sam will take care of this.
Thank you. Thank you.
Hey, hon.
I'm so sorry about last night.
No, it's okay.
You don't need to apologize.
I was just, uh...
Give me a minute.
Hey. Hi.
Good morning.
Oh, that'll be nice.
Perfect. Perfect.
Okay, I'll see you later, then.
You do the same.
Okay. Bye.
Who was that?
That was just, um, work.
That was work.
Just work.
Yes. Just work.
I'll see you later, okay?
Did I leave...?
Oh, there it is.
Okay, I'll see you.
And the three-one set.
Oh, that looks good.
- Where would you put that?
- There.
Okay. You're so sweet.
- I know, right?
- That's good, yes.
- What is this?
- All right, and, um...
Yeah, I'll have this one.
- Certainly taking this one. There.
- Which one?
That one? Okay...
- Ah, it's clovers.
- Hello, ladies.
- Hey. Hi, Dekunle.
- Hi, Dekunle.
- Hey.
- Hi, Abike.
- Hi.
- Well...
I'm sorry I missed your call
the other day.
Yeah, I was really busy at work.
I hope it wasn't something important.
No, it wasn't.
I just wanted to check on you, say hey.
Okay, thank you. Um...
Oh. This is Tessy,
our new interior decorator at the office.
Osas and Abike.
Nice to meet you both.
Have we met before?
I... I don't think so.
Your voice kind of sounds familiar.
Well, any friend of Dekunle's
is a friend of mine.
Tessy, right?
My business card.
So, what are you doing here?
Um, furniture shopping, actually,
for the office, yeah.
- Say hello to Ivy for us.
- I will.
- We have to rush now. Thank you.
- Okay then.
What? Look.
- Who is she?
- I don't know.
Could it be the reason why
Dante's been acting strangely lately?
I don't think so. I don't think
it's anything to worry about.
We're here to shop, so let's do just that.
Okay. Um...
But what was that between you and...
You remember I told you that
a woman picked up Dekunle's call
when I phoned him, right?
- Uh-huh.
- It sounds like her.
Is it me, or did you notice the look?
- Right? There was something there.
- You looked at it?
Okay. Um, I'll have this one too.
I hope it's not what I'm thinking.
Let me plait this for you.
Yeah, go on, my hair
is a bit rough right now, so...
Here we have the reception,
and lead-in is the hallway.
Then we have to the right,
we have seven massage rooms,
and to the right we have two saunas.
We have a huge steaming room.
We have your hair treatment room,
two of them,
as well as the two skin exfoliation rooms.
I can't wait.
Well, this is amazing.
I really can't wait.
I need to get special pieces
for the space.
- All right, I need to make a quick call.
- That's fine. Thank you.
All right, then.
To you too.
Always with skinny ass bitches.
As always, Dante, as always.
Hi, Zenom. I can't really talk right now.
I'll call you...
You're not avoiding me? This is important.
- Zenom, please let me talk to you later.
- No, Abike. I am tired of you avoiding me.
Tyrone was not just my business partner,
he was my friend too.
You have to do this.
You have to come in
and speak with the board.
I can only hold them off for so long.
After that, it's out of my hands.
I promised Tyrone that I would
help you with anything you need.
So when you're ready, I'll be here.
- Okay.
- Just don't take too long.
All right, then. Later. Bye.
- It does look like an ovary.
- What?
I really love this place.
We need to talk.
Hey. Abike, is something wrong?
How did you know I was here?
I called the office.
Good morning.
Can you excuse us?
- It's private.
- Oh, sure.
I... I wanted to use the ladies' anyway.
Well, what's on your mind?
What are you up to?
I keep seeing you with... what's-her-name.
- What's going on?
- What?
You mean Tessy?
Come on, she's just an employee.
Look, we're doing major renovation work
at the uptown office, okay?
Big, big project.
So... this is just business.
Seems more than that to me.
Talk to me.
What's up?
I admit that things have not
been going so great lately at home.
What's the problem?
Ivy and I have been having some issues.
Okay, but I'm not sleeping around,
if that's what you're implying.
Then treat her like an actual employee
and stop with the dates
and regular outings.
What would people say if they saw you?
Especially Ivy.
I mean, she's just...
she's just easy to talk to. Yeah?
Nothing malicious going on.
I've seen this before with some
of the men that worked with Tyrone.
They thought "easy and casual" was better,
instead of talking to their spouses
and having a real deep
and meaningful relationship.
I understand you,
but I'm not that guy, okay?
Never mind, I'll take care of this.
You better. Or I will.
Everything okay?
Think about what I said.
What was that about?
Nothing important, okay? Please.
- Thank you.
- You're welcome.
Are you okay?
Yeah. Oh, I've got a banging headache.
What from, stress?
I don't know.
I've got a doctor's appointment later.
By the way, what is
all this about this pregnant lady?
That's what Dante
posted on his social media.
- I'm going to confront the lady later.
- Why in God's name would you do that?
Yes, Osas,
I do not think that's a good idea.
Abike, you're here.
Yes. I had to just leave the house.
You both can't be serious.
What if all the money I've been giving him
is what he's using
to sort his baby mama out?
- Oh, for goodness' sake.
- Wait.
This is about the pregnant lady?
No one said that she was
his baby mama till Abike.
She wants to go and confront the woman.
Don't do something you might regret, Osas.
Why don't you concentrate
on yourself and your beautiful spa?
You guys can't be serious.
I just need to confirm my suspicion
and... if it's true,
then Dante and I are done for good.
And if you are wrong?
Osas, if I were you,
I'd stay away from that woman
and confront Dante with it
any time or when you see him.
You're not me.
- Where are you going to now?
- Relax, guys.
I'm not going to chop off his balls.
At least not yet.
I said I was going to the doctor's, right?
Are you okay?
No, it's just a headache. Okay.
Regular routine checkup.
I want to come with you.
Yes, I'd love the company.
You never know what the doctor
would say if he gives me bad news.
- What?
- Old age?
- I'll get my shoes.
- I'll be waiting for you.
- Yeah.
- My friend is a mad person.
Absolutely mad.
- Are you okay?
- I'm fine.
Okay. See you.
Hey. Are you okay?
Yeah, I'm okay. I'm fine.
Just aches and pains.
I am sure you understand.
You're here for your antenatal?
No, not today.
Today's grief therapy.
Oh, I'm sorry.
That's okay.
Have you lost someone?
- Excuse me?
- No.
What I meant was,
if you have lost someone,
grief therapy is really good.
My husband, recently.
I'm so sorry.
I feel your pain.
I think you should check it out.
It's helped me a lot.
Yeah, sure, but no thanks, I'm fine.
If you change your mind,
the door is always open.
- Thank you.
- Take care.
For you, hon.
I'm not accepting anything
until you tell me what's going on.
What do you mean?
You don't like these?
They are actually fresh.
Dekunle, for months now,
you've been distant and unemotional.
And suddenly
you're giving me gifts and flowers.
Honey, I know that
I've been distant, okay?
And look, that's why I'm doing all this.
You know, I'm just trying
to say that I am sorry.
What are you sorry for exactly?
Come on, I don't get you.
I'm trying to do something nice,
and you shut me down.
You're apologizing for
something other than being distant.
Ivy, you're looking for trouble
where there is none.
Oh, really?
You don't think that your actions
warrant an explanation?
Ivy, I told you, I've been busy with work.
Busy with work.
So work is more important
than spending time with your wife?
You men are all the same.
Liars and cheats, just like Dante.
Abike's lucky her husband is dead.
What the hell is wrong with you?
Just tell me. Is it another woman?
Be honest with me.
Ivy, come on. I can't do this.
Well, I can't do this either!
Where are you going? Where are you going?
Oh, my shoes really hur...
Oh! Sorry. Well.
You like your style and your fashion.
How did it go?
As usual. Really good.
Doctor says I'm as fit
as a fiddle for my age.
But the kid was looking
at my body, ogling.
Please, you and your stories.
Meanwhile, guess who I ran into?
- Who?
- Pregnant lady.
Dante's pregnant woman?
Are you sure it was her?
Well, I think so.
It looked like her.
Where is she?
Grief therapy.
Anyway, let's go.
It's getting late, and I'm hungry.
Hello? What is it?
I need to know the woman who
has balls to try to take a man from me.
Think about it for a moment.
Are you sure this is something
you really want to go through with?
Besides, we don't even know
if that was really her.
How else would we know
who she is if we don't go there?
And I think you really do need
grief therapy.
I need...
I don't think talking to a bunch
of people about you-know-what will help.
Okay, maybe you're right
that it might not help.
But then again, it just might.
My husband died, Osas.
Yes, I'm grieving.
And yes, it hurts like hell.
But I don't need to be talking about it
in a room filled with complete strangers.
Abike, I'm sorry, I know
I come off as insensitive sometimes.
I've apologized. I'm sorry.
But all you need to do is sit down,
say absolutely nothing
with these strangers,
but just look at that woman for me.
Do you understand what I mean?
For your girl.
Who is calling at this particular moment?
It's Ivy.
Hi, Ivy.
I'm here with Osas.
- Hello, Ivy.
- Come, it's a hospital.
Meanwhile, guess what?
I was just telling Osas
that I think I ran into the pregnant lady.
Ivy, what's wrong?
Dekunle and I just had a fight.
- Oh, my God.
- Are you okay?
What did he do?
No, it's just...
he's not being honest with me.
I think he's having an affair.
Please come.
We're coming to you.
See you shortly, okay? Okay.
He just... He just left.
He left without saying anything.
I'm so sorry.
Men are scum.
I don't know what's happening to us.
I need to think.
No, you don't.
What you need
is a night out with your girls.
I suggest we go bowling.
No way.
Do you want to help Ivy or not?
- Of course, you know I do.
- All right, then.
Because I know what I need right now
is a night out with my girls.
I also know that you need that too.
So bowling...
We're going bowling. Okay?
- Yes...
- Go get changed.
Group hug?
Single hug then.
Leave me alone,
flower doesn't fix everything.
Or does it?
I don't know if I really want to be here.
I don't feel like going bowling.
I just want to go home.
Osas is already gone in.
And I think this will do you some good.
Let's go.
I'm okay...
- Hey.
- Hey.
- Did you order?
- Where's the drinks?
Yes, bubbly for you and cocktails,
and then we'll have shots.
- This is nice.
- Yeah.
So, that's why we're here,
so you can continue spying on Dante.
No. I didn't know they were here.
- Yeah, right.
- Oh, wait.
Nice. Real nice, Osas.
We came here to talk
and help Ivy with her problem.
And talk we shall.
No, no, no.
Please don't, don't, don't get up.
We can't leave because of them.
I'm here for you. For us. I promise.
Let's just chill.
You know, relax and have some drinks.
Life's for the living.
- Why are you looking like that?
- You're annoying.
That's why you love me.
Look at you!
Is that... is that your drunken state?
My drunken state.
- I think that you're drunk. One more shot.
- Just another drink.
- That deserves another shot.
- Another shot?
- Yep, one more shot. One more shot.
- Oh, here.
One more and that's it,
I'm done after that.
- I'm not done.
- I'm never done.
You know, you never drink.
Success, whatever, more money.
- Everything.
- Money, money, money.
I'll save mine for more.
- I'll save mine.
- Damn, this is good tequila.
Why did you dip in the lime? Can I try?
I love you.
- I love you.
- I love you.
- I love you.
- Really, I love you.
I la-la-love you.
That's not how to hold a cue stick.
Put it in between your thumb
and your forefinger,
and then put the cue stick in and, ugh,
you get a perfect pocket.
Why don't you just go lay down
on the table so they will get...?
He should be so lucky.
I don't see any pregnant lady anywhere.
You're right.
Maybe... there was nothing to it.
Maybe, but I see slutty fingers
running all over his body.
He's my man, you know.
Why does everybody want what I have?
I'm rich.
Smoking hot.
He should be the one groveling at my feet.
- Yes.
- Yes, Your Highness.
- Yes, yes.
- Queen of Sheba.
Tell them, tell them.
- Hey, ladies.
- Zenom! Let's drink!
- Zenom!
- Thank you, I'm driving.
- Hi.
- Hi.
I asked him to come.
Oh, right.
I sip my alcohol.
- Business.
- Business, yeah.
- Um...
- We'll be right back.
- Business.
- You look good.
Why are both of you walking
towards the bathroom together?
That's my... that's me.
What's going on? What's the big emergency?
I need you to watch over Ivy for me.
Why? She looks okay to me.
She had a fight with Dekunle.
So we came here to hang out,
only for him to show up with some woman
he claims is his work colleague.
They're upstairs in the lounge.
I still don't see why I'm here.
Come on, Zenom, just entertain them
while I go talk some sense into his head
before he ruins his marriage.
Entertain them, how?
Think of something.
Okay, fine.
But after this, you're going to sit down
to talk about business, right?
Sure. Fine.
And please, keep an eye on Osas.
Make sure she doesn't drink alone.
I know you're going to get it.
I know you're gonna.
- Hey.
- Next time.
More drinks over here.
More drinks over here.
Hey, hey, calm down.
Take it easy on the drinks.
Yes, Daddy. But you're not my daddy.
What? Who called you here anyway, Zenom?
Come on, you're embarrassing yourself.
Hey. Hey.
And you are overstepping.
I don't think you should have any more.
Osas, Osas, please.
Hey. Abike, hi.
Don't "hi" me, Dekunle.
What are you doing having drinks
with that woman?
- What? Hey, hold up.
- Ivy called.
She said you guys had a fight.
Yes, but I don't see how
that's any of your business.
Then I wonder what Ivy will think
when she finds instead of trying to work
things through, you are having cocktails
with another woman.
I'm trying to mask her hurt by bowling.
Bowling? Ivy's here?
Wait. You mean Ivy's here?
Yeah. She's angry, and I am angry too.
So it's you.
Yes, it's me.
It's you who's been
keeping him on his toes?
Dante has told us so much about you.
Yeah. It's really nice to meet you.
Would you like to play?
Yes. We need an extra girl
to beat them for us.
- You don't have to if you don't...
- No, she should play.
- You don't have to.
- You can take my cue.
It's fine.
- Really?
- Yeah, sure.
Yeah, the boys are stripes, so...
I got it!
So I think I'm going to go one day...
What's the...?
I suggest you take your wife home
and talk to her.
Don't worry about your friend,
I'll make sure she gets home safe.
What are you doing here?
Now, if you'll just excuse me...
What are you doing here?
Hello. No one is available
to take your call.
Oh, hi.
What a surprise.
What are you doing here with Dekunle?
I beg your pardon?
I said, what are you doing here
with my friend's husband?
Hey, relax, okay?
Don't. Don't tell me to relax.
And answer the damn question.
Jeez... He just...
called and said he wanted to get drinks.
You know, just hang out.
Yeah. You're doing a very good job
of trying to convince me
that you're not sleeping with him.
Sleeping with him?
You're getting all of this wrong, okay?
I don't care what you have to say.
Dekunle is a married woman
with a beautiful wife
and a beautiful daughter.
He has a family, so stay away from him.
- Got it?
- Yeah, got it.
I've... I just wanted to say hello and...
Don't worry about the girls, okay?
They can be bitchy at times
but they're good people.
But I just...
It's fine.
It's fine. You can call me later.
- Okay? Are you sure you're okay?
- Yes, I'm fine.
No, no, it's fine.
You sure you're okay?
I'm sorry.
- I asked you to keep an eye on Osas.
- How am I supposed to stop her?
None of you women
do anything I ask you to do.
Excuse me.
Hey, Ivy.
You okay?
Take care of her.
Ivy, Ivy, honey. Please, please.
Dekunle, please. I'll meet you at home.
- Look, Ivy, please, I'm trying here.
- Trying?
Every time I beg you to tell me
what's wrong, you pull further away.
Ivy. Please.
Look... Excuse me.
My God.
Ivy, it's not what you're thinking, okay?
She's my friend, and we work together.
She's a friend or a colleague?
Come on, please, give me a minute.
Let me make sure she's okay.
Please. One minute.
Hey. You okay?
Yeah, I'm just waiting for my ride.
I can take you home.
Your wife is leaving and my ride is here.
Ivy. Ivy.
You're in the wrong room.
Are you okay?
You talk like you care.
You don't have to pretend.
I'm done playing the fool for you...
your side chicks and your baby mama.
What are you talking about?
If you don't know...
then you never will.
Speak if you want to speak,
Zenom, and stop staring.
Look, I see what you're trying to do.
You can't run away from your problems
by helping others solve
their own problems.
My friends need me.
Well, what happens
when you're done fixing their lives?
Last time I saw them was at your place,
and they were helping you
get through your grief.
- I don't need saving.
- But the company does.
And the longer you leave it,
the worse things get.
- How bad is it?
- Oh, it's bad.
My husband worked so hard
and gave everything to that company.
- I'm not ready.
- I know.
Look, everyone who knows you and
loves you can see the grief in your eyes.
I think what you're doing is commendable,
what you're doing for your friends.
But it's okay to get
some of their help back, you know.
Thanks, Zenom.
I'm going to go back and check on Osas.
- Thank you.
- Yeah.
Can we talk about last night?
I've seen everything I need to know.
There's nothing to talk about.
Only you are wrong.
You are wrong
about what you think you know.
So I'm either blind or I'm stupid.
You just calm down. Let's talk about this.
Calm down.
- How long has this been going on?
- Come on.
I can't talk to you when you're like this.
You've chosen to believe whatever
crazy assumption's in your head.
Nothing I say will make any sense to you.
You haven't been talking to me.
You haven't touched me in months.
You're treating me
like some kind of stranger.
So forgive me for coming up
with crazy explanations for your actions.
I have to go to work, okay?
I can't do this.
Dekunle, we're having a convers...
Dekunle, we're having a conversation!
Man alive.
I've been in relationships,
and they're all the same.
No, not all of them.
Tyrone was the only good man.
That's why God took him
away from this world.
I'm very sorry.
Oh, my God. I'm so sorry.
I'm sorry, Abike.
I didn't mean it that way.
Look at me, I'm just a whole mess.
I'm sitting down here,
I've gobbled a whole tub of ice cream,
brooding over a relationship
I should never have started.
Wait, what?
You're eating ice cream?
I know, right? Totally clich.
I'm just surprised.
Can you believe it?
He accused me of being drunk
and said I was the problem, when...
when he's the one actually cheating.
Well, we're not sure
about that, or about the girl.
But I think that there's
a way we can find out.
Do you have a plan?
But I think you do.
Sort of.
Whatever you do, leave me out of it.
Just going to sit here.
My husband and I tried for five years,
and when my son, Michael,
my baby boy, was born,
I knew he owned me.
His cheeky smile,
the way he called me "mommy."
That boy had my mumu button.
And he knew he could press it at his will.
Oh, God.
I miss him so much.
My husband is stronger than me.
We recently found out
I'm having another baby.
I should be happy.
I mean, I'm happy.
But I gave Michael everything I had in me.
And I'm scared.
I'm scared I don't have anything else,
anything else to give.
It's okay to cry.
- I'm so scared.
- It's okay to cry.
Hi, I'm Abike.
Hello, Abike.
When I was six months pregnant,
I went for a scan.
And when I got the sonogram,
I looked at this life
forming inside of me.
And in that moment, I knew...
I had to leave him.
Our mothers teach us to build our home...
and that if things weren't going right,
that we should just pray.
It took a week
in the hospital...
and multiple stitches
for me to realize that...
I can't fix him...
and that the only answer to my prayer
was to leave.
Or my next hospital visit
would be in a body bag.
I called my favorite cousin, Dante...
who helped me move out
and has been taking care of me since.
- Thanks for inviting me.
- That's okay.
It's okay not to share on your first day.
Not everyone shared
on their first day either.
- Yeah?
- Hmm.
I'm just not ready yet.
Take your time.
The healing process is hard.
- I do hope to see you again, though.
- Yeah?
I can see this pain behind your eyes.
But I assure you,
it gets better with time.
I have to run now,
I have a doctor's appointment.
- Are you okay?
- Yeah, just routine checkup.
- I'll see you.
- All right, take care.
Hey, Ivy.
Dekunle is having an affair.
Okay, calm down.
I'm coming to you. Okay?
I'm already at your place.
All right. That's good.
Don't worry.
I'm going to take care of this.
I'm going to take care of everything.
Just... trust me.
All right. See you soon.
Hi, Tessy, this is Abike.
I'd like you to meet me up for lunch.
And I'm not asking.
I'll text you the address.
Please, sit.
I assumed you said
all you wanted to say the other day.
My friend left her husband today.
You see,
the one who invested in this resort.
Even introduced me to my husband.
Made me godmother to their daughter.
So you see why they mean so much to me.
Look, I promise you,
this has nothing to do with me.
I'm sure you understand
why I find that hard to believe.
I think Dekunle is my father.
Well, I... I thought he was.
I lost my mother six months ago.
Sorry about your loss.
I found his journal in her room.
My mother was all I had.
It would have been really great
to know that I had someone else
and maybe I wasn't alone
in the world after all.
What's Dekunle saying about this?
He doesn't know.
And it doesn't matter anymore.
This was mailed to me this morning.
Dekunle is not my father.
I'm sorry if I caused him any trouble.
He really is a good man.
And I know from everything that he told me
that he loves his wife so much.
I'm so sorry.
You find this funny too, right?
To think those women believed the worst
and were willing
to lose their relationships.
to be honest,
I expected the worst as well.
But what a surprising turn of events.
How do I tell these silly friends of mine
that they need to apologize to their men?
Welcome home, ma'am.
Hi, Sam.
- How are you?
- Very well, ma'am.
- What of Ivy?
- She's sleeping in the guest room.
I need you to make dinner for three, okay?
- Yes, ma'am.
- Thank you.
Thank you, ma'am.
Hey, Osas.
I know you'd rather drown yourself
in a bucket of ice cream, but guess what?
I have some bottles of wine
with your name written on them.
So, dinner at mine tonight?
Yeah. Yeah. Ivy's here already, so...
see you soon?
Okay. Bye.
So good. This is food.
So good.
This is so good, Sam.
Still married?
I'm still very married, ma'am.
Why are the good ones taken?
If I can't get someone to love me,
might as well get one who can cook for me.
Enjoy your meal.
Thanks, Sam.
You can return to the kitchen.
- Excuse me.
- Yeah.
I'd rather enjoy you.
You're a shameless person.
- Very shameless.
- There's no shame in love.
I'm done.
I never took Dekunle
for the cheating type.
That's men for you. They'll shock you.
Dekunle's not cheating on you, Ivy.
I saw her, Abike, she's...
She's prettier, she's...
She's younger,
and she looked at him like she...
Maybe he's going through a midlife crisis.
Midlife crisis?
My midlife crisis is out there
getting women pregnant.
Dante loves you,
and he's not cheating on you either.
I know you like to see
the good in every human.
Dante is not that human.
It's okay to fall in love
and to receive love in return.
I met the pregnant lady.
She's his cousin.
- You met her?
- Yes.
- At grief counseling.
- Wait...
She was in a bad marriage,
and Dante, her cousin,
helped her out of that situation.
You go to grief counseling? Since when?
- It was your friend's idea.
- Yeah, I'll take that.
Well, kind of.
And maybe that's...
that's what I need.
The situation of the company
is getting really bad,
and if I stay away any longer,
I might lose the company.
Zenom finally got through to you.
He's a good and loyal friend.
- Calling that one.
- I'm so sorry, Abike.
We should be helping you
through your grief and...
here we are dumping our problems on you.
Come on.
You guys have helped me
in ways that you cannot imagine.
Of course, yes. I know I have.
Dekunle's faithful to you, Ivy.
I met Tessy.
- She thought he was her father.
- Hmm?
That's even worse.
He has a baby mama?
- Hey. Okay, that's the last drink for you.
- It's the drink talking.
Of course it is.
Blame it on the alcohol then.
Listen, Dekunle isn't even aware.
She did a DNA test
and he's not her father.
He dated her mom just before he met you.
I don't have all the details,
but I think you both need
to sit down and talk.
Doesn't make any sense. How do you...
So the woman he was having an aff...
that I thought he was having
an affair with
thinks that he's her father?
Okay, so if he's not cheating on me, then...
Or maybe something else is wrong.
Well, that's why both of you
need to sit down, talk,
and come to an understanding.
And you, you better stop drinking
and go fetch your man,
before you lose a good man and great sex.
This drink is loyal.
Remember, love lost can be found.
Love is the language
that rules the universe.
Finding, being, falling in love
can truly be a beautiful experience.
That you can never forget.
You're so beautiful, Abike.
- Sounds like a quote.
- No.
It's just me being real and honest...
remembering love.
Yeah, she mentioned it this morning
when she turned in her resignation.
Poor thing.
I hope she finds happiness.
The world can be so unkind.
Dekunle, what's going on?
Is everything okay at the office?
Yeah, everything's fine at the office.
It's just... just my health.
I've got, um...
I've got testicular cancer.
Oh, my God.
I mean, I'm undergoing treatment,
but... unfortunately, I, um...
I have erectile dysfunction.
Why we couldn't have sex.
Why didn't you say anything?
- I'm your wife.
- Yeah.
I mean, I didn't
want you to see me differently.
You know, I didn't want this
to make you sad or wear you down.
What happened
to "in sickness and in health"?
Look, I saw what
Tyrone's sickness did to Abike.
I cannot let you go through that.
- I'm scared, baby.
- I know, I know, baby.
But don't be.
We'll get through this together.
And until then,
we're going to live our lives.
As long as there's no one else
who thinks that you're their father.
Uh, well, I can't make any promises.
I mean, I was a rolling stone
before I met you.
Oh, I know you were.
We all cope in many different ways.
The important thing is for us
to listen to the people around us
coping with the shock, anger and denial.
Acceptance for an individual comes
at a different time
in the process of grieving.
But the best way of coping is talking.
Yes, talking.
So, who wants to share first?
Yeah, Abike.
There you go.
Hi, everyone.
Hi, Abike.
It's been eight months,
five days and...
three hours
since my husband died.
He loved me.
He loved me with everything he had and...
He was my biggest supporter.
I met Tyrone after I suffered
a terrible heartbreak and...
I thought I would never
find love again, but...
I did.
He said I could achieve
anything I set my mind to.
And with him...
oh, I did.
I did.
I don't know how to do life without him.
And I know he would want me
to move on with my life, but...
he was my life,
my everything.
He was my life.
How do I move on without him?
God, I miss him.
I miss my baby.
I miss him so much.
- Oh, hi.
- Hi.
I am Osas.
Oh, my goodness.
It's nice to finally meet you.
I've heard so much about you.
- Good things I hope?
- Only the best.
Um, is Dante in?
No, I'm going to kill him
when I finally see him because...-
Are you okay?
- It's the baby.
- Oh, okay.
What... must I do?
Take my bag.
- Okay.
- My water just broke.
- And carry me to the hospital.
- All right.
Are you...?
I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry.
I've never done this before.
- I'll need you to calm down.
- Okay.
For the next few minutes
until you take me to the hospital,
my baby and my life are in your hands.
Okay. Okay.
So we both breathe.
- I'm sorry, okay...
- Okay.
The doctor says that she could have
the baby in a few, an hour or less.
Thank you for bringing her here.
I'm happy that you're here.
As you saw, this teddy
puts a smile on her face
and makes her forget.
Wait, how did you know she likes roses?
These are for you.
And, uh, what did I do this time?
Dante. I just want to apologize for...
for pushing you away.
I really am sorry, Dante.
Okay, so, uh... where are the big gifts?
'Cause you always apologize for something.
Dante, Dante.
That boat has sailed.
I... I don't want to be
that girl who has to bring gifts,
and I don't want that...
I'm a bit of a mess now.
Come here.
I love you.
And I love you.
The babies are here.
- What? Babies?
- Twins.
- But we were not...
- Even the mother was surprised too.
The little one was playing
hide-and-seek during the scan.
- I guess so.
- Congratulations!
- Twins.
- My God.
Sorry I was too scared
to let you go skydiving,
even though I know how much you wanted it.
Thank you.
Thank you for everything.
Thank you for loving me the way you did.
Thank you for making me so happy.
Thank you for helping me with the girls.
Thank you.
- Good morning, Abike.
- Hi, Zenom.
You've had a chance to look at that?
Uh, well, yeah.
- Thank you.
- Yeah.
You know, I have been
looking forward to this.
I'm so excited.
- Right?
- Mm-hmm.
Thanks for holding down the fort
and not giving up on me.
I see that Tyrone taught you very well.
That he did.
I'm going to need all the help I can get.
And I will be here whenever you need me.
Thank you.
Thank you.
You're welcome.
Well, Congratulations, Chairlady.
I'll have to get used to that.
You know, I think we should celebrate.
How about we go for dinner?
I can't.
I'm having dinner
for some friends tonight.
You know what?
Care to join us?
I would love to.
- See you later.
- Okay.
So what's next?
I would like to open a grief resort.
Like a grief hotel, you know,
for people who are dealing with loss,
people who are grieving,
you know, somewhere they can find help,
find some strength.
Yeah, that's what I want to do.
These are good desserts.
Yes. Um...
To everyone's mommy.
- Thank you.
- Cheers.
- Cheers to you.
- Cheers to me.
- Cheers.
- Hey.
- Cheers, cheers.
- Cheers.
So a grief shelter?
I think it will be helpful
to a lot of people
dealing with grief, you know, with loss.
So, yes, a grief resort it is.
drink wine...
and great food.
Now, that's my kind of therapy.
You know I give great massages.
Don't tell them, they'll take you.
TMI, too much information, please.
Excuse me, fill up my drink.
Great drink.
No, no, it's fine.
You know I would still love
to go on a dinner date with you,
just two of us.
Okay. Sure.
All right.
- Think I'll go back to my place.
- Okay.
My friends, eat your dinner.
- Kitchen?
- Desserts?
I thought I was the only one
who noticed that.
He has the hots for you.
Stop, guys, like...
Thank you very much for dinner.
You're welcome.
I can't remember the last time
I had such a delicious meal.
I'm glad you enjoyed it.
I did. Very much.
Congratulations on your engagement.
Thank you.
- I will just...
- Okay, yeah.
- Uh, ladies.
- Zenom.
Did you see that?
He has the hots for you.
And you were smiling and flirting,
you naughty girl.
Okay. Remind me to frown next time
so you don't get silly ideas.
Abike. It's not too late to find love.
- You're being silly.
- Of course I am.
But that is true.
this is not the time.
I've got a company to run.
- You go, girl!
- Okay, let's...
I'm so proud of how far we've come.
I'm so glad we have each other.
That's what friends are for.
Now, come here.
- I love you very much.
- I love you.
- Are we drunk or what?
- All right, chicks?
