When Love Happens (2014) Movie Script

Oh, my gosh, Mo, you won't
believe this, you won't believe it!
Who's this?
- Jennifer?
- I could not believe it.
We were in the middle of Oxford Street,
and, oh, my God, he proposed!
What a big rock this is.
It's just so...
- He proposed?
- Yes, yes, yes.
I am sending you
the picture of the ring right now.
It's so beautiful. Gosh! I am so excited.
He proposed right in the middle of...
Okay. Don't get it twisted.
This isn't me being upset
or angry or jealous.
I mean, why should I be?
Jennifer is one of my oldest friends,
and I'm happy she's getting married.
But, still, why isn't it me
making this call?
We have a wedding to plan,
and I need you to do it.
Mo? Hello, Mo? You there?
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
I'm here. I'm here.
Okay. I'll be coming home by Wednesday
to set things in motion.
And I have a list of things...
Typical Jenny.
Always sending you on errands.
But, hey...
It's her wedding and she's my friend.
Okay. Right, right, right.
So what do you want to start with?
- Your fruits, honey.
- Oh, thank you, love.
Just the way you like it.
One fork?
- Aren't you eating any?
- No.
Breakfast was quite filling.
I don't want any.
No, you're not going to bribe me.
I'm not going to eat any of this
if you don't have some.
- Okay, fine, I'll join you.
- Okay, here we go.
Ooh, you wanted... You prefer watermelons,
- don't you?
- Mmm-hmm.
- I'm going to stuff you.
- Yeah, you're trying to cheat me
- off of my watermelon.
- How about another?
- Love you.
- Love you too, girl.
Good morning, Dad, Mum.
Good morning, dear. How are you?
- Good.
- All right.
What time did you come in last night,
young woman?
- Mum, you know I had an event.
- So?
That doesn't give a woman the right
to come in at ungodly hours.
I don't like this job.
Can we not do this this morning?
You made that very clear from
the beginning, but this my job, I love it.
But I don't like the fact
that you come in so late at night.
It worries me, Mo.
Say something, Tunde
Don't worry, love. I hate us to worry.
You won't have to worry about her
by the time she moves
to her husband's house.
- Which I hope will be soon.
- Me too.
You plan other people's events.
I think it's time we planned yours,
don't you think?
Have you ever thought that maybe
some of us aren't as lucky
as the two of you
when it comes to finding love?
Oh, nonsense.
There's a man out there for you.
All you have to do is open your eyes.
I remember when I met your father. Oh!
He was standing right there by...
I've heard this story a thousand times.
I'd appreciate it if you didn't
recount it again, especially not today.
- Are you all right, Mo?
- I just want to be left alone.
I don't want to talk about falling in love
or getting married.
Are you okay?
- Do you want to talk about it?
- No!
Pick up your phone.
Your call has been forwarded
to an automatic voice message system.
- At the tone, please record...
- Seriously?
Can't call them for when you want them.
Don't know how
this thing works. But, uh...
Let's give this a go. Go with the flow.
Hi. My name is Moduroti Bankole-Smith,
but you can call me Mo.
So. I was just wondering,
how does a single girl get hooked up
in Lagos these days?
And I'm not talking random dates
or a series of relationships
that are leading nowhere, no.
I'm talking about finding love.
Real love. Love that leads to marriage.
The kind of love that has you at 60
still eating off the same plate,
and laughing at each other's jokes,
and has you gazing into each other's eyes
as if you just met for the first time.
The kind of love
I don't think exists anymore.
I mean, you think you're fine,
got a brain between your ears,
homely, good conversation, hardworking,
and generally a good catch.
Until your friend calls you and tells you
she's getting married.
As in no offense,
but I better pass that girl by far.
And don't get it twisted.
I am not beefing or anything. No, I'm not.
I'm just wondering, like,
where are all the good guys?
Where are they?
I can't believe this girl
is actually getting married.
You're kidding.
Jennifer, of all people,
is getting married.
I need to swallow that with a cold drink.
That's Tseju.
Downright blunt and sarcastic.
Sometimes to a fault,
but she's fun to be with.
She's lively and knows
how to have a good time.
Basically, she's your typical
life-of-the-party kind of girl.
If you're bored, call Tseju.
I hope she doesn't think it's going to be
a walk in the park or something.
I mean, she's getting married.
This girl can't even tie
her own shoelaces,
talk less of handling a man.
- Tseju.
- What?
Come on, that's not fair.
That's Tobe.
The perfect gentleman.
He's caring, generous, sensitive,
and as good as they come.
He's the one person
I can tell anything to
without fear of being judged or criticized
or having all my dirty laundry
hung out in the open.
Anyway, if you ask me,
Jennifer is not that bad.
Really? You have met her, right?
- Well...
- Mo, back me up here.
- Huh? What?
- Seriously?
What are you up to?
I actually can't believe this.
People are watching this thing
I've had five hits.
- What are you talking about?
- That.
- You started a vlog?
- You're kidding.
Yeah. I started a vlog...
And it's actually thanks
to the both of you.
You, I called you and you didn't pick up.
And you, your phone was unavailable
and I needed someone to talk to.
And so you started a vlog?
You are so spoilt.
You needed to talk to someone,
so you talked to the whole world?
- And I did call you back.
- Yeah, two days later.
And what's wrong with a vlog anyways?
I mean, a girl needed to vent,
and I found an outlet.
Oh, please, don't give us that,
"Jennifer is getting married.
"I'm so upset I'm still single."
I can't believe I ordered a drink
five minutes ago and it's still not here.
Come on. You know Tseju. Ignore her.
- So did it really help?
- Yes!
Like I said, I actually can't believe it.
Five hits.
People are watching this thing.
I can't... I don't get it.
Okay, I just got us a large glass,
a pitcher, of margaritas.
So, get ready.
- What are you trying to do? Get us drunk?
- Turn up!
- There is work tomorrow now, though, guys.
- Uh!
Oh, babe, relax.
Turn down!
You girls can't do that.
I expect everyone I work with
to behave in a professional manner,
including my ushers.
This company has a reputation to keep,
so you cannot, under
any circumstance whatsoever,
insult a guest at an event.
But, Mo, he was the one that started it.
Are you telling me you've never heard
the expression,
"The client is always right"?
He's not our client.
The bride and groom were our clients.
You're... You're kidding me, right?
Any guest at any event
is a potential client.
So can't just talk to them
or behave anyhow!
Ah, hey.
- Uh, is everything okay?
- Yes, I'm just addressing an issue.
All right, okay, guys.
Carry on what you're doing, okay?
Great job.
Sorry, Mo.
Do you know what? All of you get out!
Get out of my office.
Sorry, Mo.
Thanks, but no thanks.
Hi, Mum.
Yeah, I'm just about to leave the office.
Okay, okay, I'll stop at the supermarket
on my way home.
Oluwanimoduroti Bankole-Smith?
- Mary Chougule.
- Oh, come here!
Don't be fooled by the smiles.
We were more rivals than friends
back in secondary school.
Whatever I wanted, Mary wanted.
From boys to grades,
anything you can think of.
It was a relief to lose her shadow
after school.
I can't imagine her setting her fangs
into my man now.
If I had one.
You know, the moment I saw your back,
I just knew it was you.
You haven't changed much.
You apparently have.
You put on some weight.
- I have?
- Yeah!
Well, that's what happens
when you have a baby.
And my husband loves my shape
and he is absolutely...
You're married?
And you have a baby?
The universe is definitely
playing tricks on me.
So Mary finally has something
I don't have.
Yes, darling.
Oh, he's into imports and exports,
and, you know, he's loving,
caring and generous.
- We've got the cutest baby in the world.
- Aw, that's nice.
He's going to be three months
in four days.
I should have
a picture of my son here.
You know I can't believe how we used to
fight over dating the same guy in school.
- Of course.
- Silly things we did as teenagers.
- Uh, huh, yeah.
- Where's this picture?
So what about you?
What does your husband do?
It was so good seeing you.
Congratulations on your baby.
I'll see you around.
- Bye!
- Hold on. Wait, my picture...
Oh, hey, Mo
Where are the groceries I asked you to buy
on the way home?
- Did you leave them in the car?
- Good evening, Mum. No, I didn't.
So, where are they?
They didn't have
anything in the shop.
- Everything?
- Yes.
- Why didn't you check somewhere else?
- It didn't occur to me, Mum.
This is not me being desperate.
But you never know how love will find you.
The truth is, I don't believe
in Internet dating,
but who knows?
I might just meet Mr. Perfect.
I mean, what harm could come from this?
None. I hope.
Okay, Mo, if you're going to do this,
just do it.
Don't chicken, just do it.
Everyone does it.
People find love online these days.
People know more people.
They find love, they get married...
Who am I kidding?
No man worth his salt wants to date
a 28-year-old he met on the Internet.
But you're widening your options,
that's all you're doing.
Just widening your options.
Nobody has to know.
Apart from the guy you're going to date.
Am I actually doing this?
Like, really?
This is what it has come to.
Just do it. It's cool.
Just do it.
Just do it.
Thank you, Mary. Thank you very much.
I can't believe I just did that.
This is ridiculous.
For real?
This thing is fast.
Mmm, okay.
Hi, yes. This is Mo.
Who's speaking?
Oh, Leo? Hi.
Yes. Oh, thank you.
Hey, love.
- How are ya?
- Hey, I'm good. How are you?
I'm good, chilling.
Hey, we haven't spoken in a while, huh?
I know it's not like me to not call,
but you know how hectic it can get
at the banks.
But for you, man, come on! You can't even
pick up your phone to call someone.
Yes, and, uh, can't even talk right now
'cause I'm actually on my way out.
Oh, yeah? Where you going?
- Our spot?
- No. On a date.
A date?
Oh, for real? With who?
Nobody you know.
Look, I'll give you the gist later.
I have to go.
So I can't even see you today?
It's our special day.
And look at me keeping my hopes up.
Please, Mo. Please.
Tell me I'm not stuck with
that crazy Tseju girl.
You guys will have fun
without me, jo. Bye!
I know, but she... Mo?
Um, sorry. Have we met before?
I'm sorry. I thought you were Leo.
I'm actually waiting for someone.
Yeah. Come back after. Thanks.
Okay, okay.
I'll forgive you again.
Ah! You being serious?
Mo, right? I'm Leo.
You have got to be kidding me.
Of all the guys out there,
I get Steve Urkel? Really?
Imagine the look on Tseju's face
if I showed up with a guy like this.
She'll probably die of a heart attack.
Oh, no way this is going to work.
I'm sorry
I think you have the wrong girl.
It's a joke, isn't it?
I saw your picture on the Internet.
I said you have the wrong girl.
Uh, but... But, it's...
What's funny now?
What's funny about it?
A lot.
It's not funny, it's hilarious, man.
Oh, my God. You know what?
For once, I have to agree with Tseju.
It's some crazy story.
At least I found a way to escape
- instead of being stuck in a boring...
- Oh, no, no, no, no. Come on, Mo!
The fact that the guy is a nerd
doesn't mean he's going to be boring.
You didn't give him a chance
to get to know you.
Don't make her hear words.
You seriously need help.
Of all the ways to meet a guy...
Online dating?
Babe, that's a cry for help.
I thought it was worth a try.
You're an events planner,
for goodness sakes.
You meet guys day in, day out.
You could just hook up with any of them
- when it comes to...
- No, no, no, no. Time out, time out.
Come on now.
Tseju, that's totally unprofessional.
The girl is an event planner.
You don't expect her to hook up
with guys at events she plans.
- Exactly.
- Oh, please.
And you.
You don't think
you're taking this too far?
You need to chill out, man.
It will come to you naturally, yeah?
It isn't easy for everyone
like it is for you.
Like, you can go outside
and pick any girl.
Come on, Mo.
I don't want any girl.
I want one girl.
Look, we're not talking about you.
We are talking about my dating life, okay?
And you seriously need help.
So you said a thousand times.
Please help me, Tseju.
First of all, you need to,
I don't know, go out more.
- Like, this, I don't know, you...
- Know what, ladies?
I'll call it a night here.
See you guys later.
You were saying?
First lesson.
You need to see the guy's picture
before you agree to a blind date.
Yeah, but then it wouldn't be
a blind date, then, would it?
Who goes on a blind date
in this age of modern technology?
And this is Lagos.
Trust me, the men are out there.
From the billionaires, who are loaded,
and usually good-looking.
But even if they aren't, who cares?
And then, of course,
there are the corporate guys.
Those you catch in the clubs,
restaurants, lounges on a Friday night.
Some are married, some are not.
Some are millionaires
or millionaires in the making.
And then, of course, we have the scrubs.
And, my dear, this is a niche where
you find a lot of eligible bachelors,
and plenty single girls.
This, my friend,
is where the game is played.
And to win?
You have to set yourself apart.
Please stop doing that.
But you know this dress
is too short for me,
and I don't like short things,
so it makes me feel like I am desperate.
Think of the dress
as an attractive package
for a brand new toy or a fancy gadget
that has plenty of benefits to offer.
Excuse me, but I am not a toy!
Figure of speech.
Basically what I am saying is
nobody is going to look in your direction
if you don't have the right package
on the outside. Okay?
Regardless of whatever you have
on the inside.
Men are drawn by...
What they see.
You told me a thousand times.
Good. So you're paying attention.
Now put a smile on your face.
Turn around. Let's work this.
Sorry, I'm so sorry...
- Hi.
- Uh... Can I buy you a drink?
Okay. Yeah, sure.
The thing is, we pour the liquid cement
into any kind of shape we want it to take.
If you need to alter the shape,
you have to make sure that
- it is still in liquid form.
- Mmm-hmm.
I love being a civil engineer.
So much so that my friend thinks that,
because I love it so much,
I don't have time for fun.
That's why he dragged me here.
- Cheers.
- Cheers.
That explains a lot.
He's been talking about his work
for the past 30 minutes.
I'm here to have some fun
and meet an interesting guy,
not to be talked to death.
One more thing about his precious work
and I am out of here.
Believe me.
Oh, wow...
Uh, I think we have
to take off very soon 'cause
I have a floor plan to check tomorrow
and I'm starting...
- I'm going to need another drink.
- Okay, I'll get you one...
- No, no, no, no. I'm fine.
- You sure?
- I'll get one myself.
- Okay.
Oh, please, please sit. Thank you.
I know some
really good real estate, though.
- Oh, this is my friend Mo.
- Hi, nice to meet you.
I'm leaving. Are you coming?
Would you like me to drop you home
or are you staying?
- What's going on? What's happened?
- I'm leaving.
Do you want to stay or would you like me
to drop you at home?
I'll see you later. Bye.
Nice to meet you.
Yes, Tseju.
I'm tired.
Okay. Yeah, yeah, yeah.
I'll talk to you tomorrow.
I'll talk to you tomorrow, okay?
- All right, bye.
- Bye. I love you. Bye.
Mo? Are you there?
I think I heard her come in just now.
Her car is parked outside.
Look, maybe she's tired.
Perhaps the date went well.
Perhaps it did.
We'll get the details tomorrow.
Come on, love.
Let's go to bed.
Let's do this. Okay.
Hi, it's your girl Mo again.
I know I've been MIA for a little while,
but it's just 'cause
I have been really busy.
So, yes, last time I was wondering how
a single girl in Lagos could get hooked
and find true love.
So, I went and experimented.
See what I could find.
First thing I learned,
the hard way, of course,
is never ever agree to go
on a date with a guy
before you know what he looks like.
Because, trust me, you might
just be shocked out of your skin.
Secondly, dress comfortably.
Don't wear six-inch heels.
Like, look good. Make sure you look good.
But, my sister, your feet follow.
Right now, my feet are killing me.
And the worst part about it is,
the man won't even notice the heels.
Trust me.
All he is interested is in, up here.
So, yes. The first day of my experiment,
I met this guy, the most boring,
uninteresting man I have ever met.
He went on and on and on about his job,
and just when I thought things
couldn't get any worse...
- Another drink, please.
- You're so funny!
- I'm glad I could make you laugh.
- Aw!
So, um...
- More drinks?
- Yes, yes.
Barman, please, another drink for
the beautiful lady.
You're so kind.
And what is it?
That's your ex-boyfriend.
No, no, no, no!
You're jealous?
Hell, no! That's my boss.
And he's having fun, so you should, too.
- Okay?
- Okay.
That's better.
- So, tell me, you're an event planner.
- Yeah.
Sounds so interesting, now.
How well does it pay?
It's not too bad.
Come on, this man. How much, um...
How much is my bill, please?
I think I misplaced my wallet.
Oh, God, this is...
This is so embarrassing.
You know...
- Shake it well.
- Yeah, I am. This is...
Can you...
Can you please help me pick
the bill this time?
You must be joking.
For this Lagos?
This guy thinks I'm a JJC.
I should pick up the tab.
Ha! I bet you he's washing
all the dishes in the restaurants.
I so walked out on him.
And then, the adventure got even weirder.
Of course,
I had to get out from under him.
I said he takes the deal,
or he gets nothing.
- Yes, but don't you think...
- In my line of business,
you can't afford to be sentimental.
- Do you like the food?
- Yes, I think it's...
It's very nice. It's the best meal here.
And, of course, I have ordered the meals.
That was the very best.
- What about the wine?
- It was...
Very nice. Classic.
I don't think I've ever met a guy
who likes the sound of his own
voice this much.
Between us, we said 1,500 words.
Out of those 1,500 words,
he said 1,450.
And by then, you'd have thought,
I would stop, right?
No, Mo keeps going on and on.
You're a very beautiful woman.
Oh, thank you.
I'm really, really thirsty,
I'm just gonna...
Are you okay?
You want me to order for some more drinks?
This is fine.
I, um...
You're so pretty.
Thank you.
Get your hands off me!
You know what? I can't and I won't.
You're a disgusting little man.
Don't smile, don't smile, it's not funny!
Ew! Need I say more?
The guy just couldn't keep
his grimy hands off me.
How disgusting.
Okay, pass this ball, now!
- Hey.
- Fun and jokes!
What are these boys playing today?
You know, it does bring out your temper,
because of the flogging that my boys
are going to give you today.
- Oh, TJ, stop, TJ.
- Oh, TJ, stop, stop, stop.
- What is he watching?
- Fake guy.
- Guys, this is none of your business...
Why don't you just tell her you like her?
Hey, now, gimme, gimme, gimme.
You see?
- Goal, goal.
- Tough guy, lover boy!
I need to talk to somebody now.
This guy. Give me, now.
Goddamn, relax now, come on.
Are you...
Are you actually sending
us out of your house?
Because we're telling you the truth?
And I heard you, now...
So, now, I'm beginning to think
that maybe I'm the problem.
I'm the constant in all these...
...maybe being myself just isn't enough.
I don't know why you're bothering
yourself, Tseju, because I'm not going.
But it's going to be so much fun.
Uh, I've had enough fun
to last me a lifetime.
I'm not interested.
Okay, so you've
had a couple of sour dates.
Are you gonna give up?
Look, for every twelve,
there's always a Judas.
And I've had five Judases.
No Peter, no James, no John.
All thanks to you.
What's that supposed to mean?
Uh, after the first day at the club,
I should've stopped.
But no, you convinced me
to go on another date.
And another date, and another date!
Oh, so, it's my fault that the guys
that you met were wrong for you?
I'm just saying, maybe I shouldn't be
taking relationship advice from you.
Because there's something about my
advice that jinxes your relationships?
No, because you can't give
what you don't have.
You don't have a relationship, Tseju.
You go from guy to guy to guy to guy.
I want something stable, you know, love,
marriage, I want a stable relationship,
not flings.
You're right, Mo.
You know...
You're not the only one that has fantasies
about fairytale relationships.
But this is the real world.
And in the real world,
some of us take what we can get.
Oh, wow!
You sent me a picture, remember?
It's beautiful.
I know!
I haven't seen you in ages,
are you gonna give me a hug?
Oh, it's good to see you.
- Good to see you, you look amazing.
- Oh, you sure?
Because I've been
going through my beauty treatments
and I have been
harassing my makeup artist, so...
I must look really great.
Yeah, but I didn't know you'd hired
a makeup artist already.
I thought I would do that.
Thought I was helping you
plan the wedding.
Oh, of course you are, darling,
but she's brilliant,
so I insisted that she must do my makeup.
Well, she didn't have much of a choice,
considering how much I'm paying her.
The only issue I'm having
right now is this heat.
- It's not that bad.
- Sorry?
It's crazy hot in here, even with the ACs.
How do you guys cope?
Uh, babe, you grew up here.
Which day did you go?
Uh-uh. I've been out of this country
for eight whole years.
Are you gonna say
you've forgotten all the prep nights
and dining hall dramas that we had,
and all those seniors who hated you,
and used to call you...
Royal Junior.
I went to school abroad as well,
and when I came back four years ago,
I adjusted pretty easily.
Well, I'm not you.
You know I don't like anything stressful.
Oh, right and I like stress?
Well, why else would you take on a job
as an event planner?
Yeah, um, great.
Here. We are here to plan your wedding.
So, how many guests are we expecting?
Um, about a thousand.
A thousand?
Is that a problem?
Oh, you can't handle it?
No, it's not that.
I'm just surprised that you'd wanna spend
your special day with so many people.
You should know, I don't have a choice.
I'm royalty and so is he!
You can't expect us to have anything less.
It's going to be a carnival.
Oh, my goodness,
you can't handle this, can you?
Look, if you can't handle this,
my mother knows the best
event planner in this country.
I just wanted you to have the privilege
of organizing my wedding,
because, you know,
we're friends and all.
But like I said,
if you can't handle this...
- I can handle it.
- Okay.
Because you know how
I like things to be perfect.
Now, I'm taking a huge risk
with your mediocre company.
But, hey,
that's what friends are for, right?
Seriously, this is the person
getting married, and not me?
I must be part of some cosmic joke.
Okay, uh, excellent!
So, I'm going to have to work
over the budget again,
obviously because of the increase
in number of guests.
But, um, what I'm gonna do is,
I'm gonna run it by my boss,
you know, sort out the numbers
and then I will get back to you
and then we can set things in motion.
Okay, well, like I said,
money is not an issue, yeah?
As you know, Iyke and I are royalty and
we just want to make sure that everything
goes, you know, really excellent.
You just make sure
that you don't disappoint us, okay?
Yes, Your Highness.
Um, so, when is Iyke coming in?
Oh, he should be in town with
his best man in about one month? Yeah.
Well, we have about three months to go,
right? So, it's not much of an issue.
You'll be surprised at how quickly time
flies by when you're planning a wedding.
Aw, well, that's why I have you.
- To make sure everything goes perfectly.
- Yeah, I guess.
Okay, um, so I'm going to
head back to my office now,
and when I sort some stuff out,
I'll call you with an update.
- No problems.
- Excellent. Okay.
Let me get my stuff together.
Oh, you need to, you know,
take me to all those places
that you single ladies hang out, you know?
Before I tie the knot.
For what?
Please, leave us single girls alone.
Face your marriage.
Oh, Mo.
- Oh, you're back.
- Yes.
- Welcome back.
- Thank you.
- Is he in his office?
- Yes, he is in the office.
-But he's with...
Oh, sorry.
Get out.
Get out. Now!
Will you move?
What the hell is wrong with you?
Can't you keep your trousers zipped?
Must you sleep with everything
with a skirt?
You're a married man,
for God's sake!
You have a beautiful wife who sings
your praises all day
and you want to throw that all away
for a stupid tumble in the sack?
A lot of people would do anything.
They would give anything
to have what you have.
A forever with someone who loves them
and who they can love back!
And you wanna throw it away for just...
For... For just her?
Mo, I...
Are you all right?
Are you okay?
- I'll come back.
- Mo...
It's amazing what people would
do to get on television.
It's absolutely hilarious,
love this thing!
- Oh, here you go honey.
- Thank you.
Good evening, Mum, Dad.
- Mmm.
- Oh...
You're home early.
It's a weekday, Mum.
I'm always home early on weekdays.
Oh, you haven't been home
this early on a Friday night.
Right, Tunde?
Oh, yes. She probably doesn't
have a date this evening.
- Right, dear?
- Yes, Dad.
I don't have a date.
And I won't be having any dates
for a little while.
I've had a long day.
I'm tired, and I just wanna go to bed.
Oh, come on, you can't
conclusively say that.
You never know when love happens.
Look, we're having the Lagudas over.
- For lunch on Sunday. After church?
- Yeah.
Please cancel any appointments
that you might have.
Why should I do that?
Saturdays and Sundays are my busiest
days and you know that.
Well, I know that, honey,
but they're our guests
and I'm trying to accommodate them.
Do I really have to be there?
I'm sure you old folks can
have fun without me.
Of course you have to be there, silly.
Tunde, say something.
All right, calm down, love.
Mo, do you have any events on that day?
- No, but...
- Good!
I should have been told way before now.
What if I did have an event?
But you don't.
So, that settles that, yeah?
Your mom is happy and you're happy.
No, Dad, I'm roped in. Thanks a lot.
- Oh, honey.
- My pleasure.
- You look beautiful.
- Really?
She's so like you.
Why on Earth aren't you dressed?
I thought I told you the Lagudas
are coming over for dinner today.
Okay, Mum, I'll throw something on
and I'll be down in a few minutes.
Well, don't just throw anything on.
I want you to look spectacular.
- For lunch with the Lagudas?
- Well, just look nice.
And come down in five minutes,
- Mary's already setting the table.
- Okay.
- Look nice.
- Okay, Mum.
Spectacular lunch with the Lagudas!
Oh, I need to get out of here.
Ah, good evening, my dear, how are you?
Very well, thank you.
Good evening, ma'am.
Good evening, darling.
How are you?
I'm well, thank you very much.
there's chemistry between them.
So, Dare, I heard you graduated
with honors in the master's program!
- That's quite impressive.
- Mum!
Son, tell me which mother would not be
so proud to brag about our only son?
Well, yes, it is true.
You see?
Excellence runs in my lineage. Mmm?
Why should it be yours, and not mine?
Don't forget, he's as much as my son,
as much as he's yours.
Oh, well, he doesn't bear your name.
He bears mine.
But that is so true! So true!
So, Dare, more the reason why you should
stay back and run my company.
Uh, Dad, I already told you,
I've made arrangements
with investors in the UK for my project.
I know, I know. That's right,
which I don't think is a good idea.
Why can't you stay and run my company?
Because you're already running it, Dad.
You see, that's the problem
with children of nowadays, huh?
No, leave him alone, yeah.
He should have a mind of his own.
And, Mister, that's true.
Mo is gonna drop your name
and then take on her husband's name.
That is so true,
and she would make a very lovely wife.
I'm sure she will.
Last time I saw you, you were
a skinny, tall teenager, back then.
Very funny. I don't remember you being
tall, dark and handsome, yourself.
It's okay.
I'm sure she feels differently now.
Oh, yes!
- She would make a very lovely wife.
- Yes, she will.
And, oh, uh, my mom was right.
You did fill out quite nicely.
That's my boy!
Well, hey, I thought you guys were gonna
go talk some business over drinks?
Yes, that's true.
You said you wanted to discuss
a business proposal.
- Really?
- Oh, yes.
- What business proposal?
- Mmm-hmm. Yes. Yes, sir.
- And girl, let me show you the fabrics.
- Oh, okay, sweetie...
You guys enjoy yourselves.
What are these two women up to?
Seems like they're trying to match make
us when we have already...
They never knew
we were an item back then.
They're probably somewhere
spying on us, as well.
So, when did you get back?
Uh, few days ago.
I came in for an important event.
Right, and you didn't think to tell me
you were going to be here today?
I thought it might be nice
to surprise you.
- Really?
- Really.
Why, aren't you surprised?
So, what have you been up to lately?
Last I heard,
you were out of the country for school.
When did you get back?
That was four years ago, actually.
- Hmm. And then?
- I went into events planning.
So, basically,
you are the errand girl at a party?
You really haven't changed, have you?
You're still as arrogant as ever.
Look, it might not be as glamorous
as oil and gas, but I love it.
Relax. I was just joking.
Besides, you love the job.
That's what matters, right?
So, how about you and I
go for a drink sometime?
Yeah, so what I'm gonna need from you
is I need everything prepared properly,
and I mean to the very last detail,
because I told you the bride is my friend.
And she's very, very, very picky.
Yes, okay.
All right, uh, yes.
I will transfer you the money
by the end of today.
And, yeah...
All right, no problem, bye.
Who was that?
The caterers.
I was just discussing Jennifer's menu.
Okay, um, when is it, again?
Three months. Well, two months
and two weeks to be exact.
- So, everything is okay?
- Yes.
All right, okay.
- I wanted to say...
- I want to tell you...
I wanted to apologize for the way
I spoke to you the other day.
I was upset, yes, but I had no right,
and it's none of my business.
It was none of your business.
And yes, you absolutely had no right.
But even though I am your boss,
I consider you a friend.
That's why I'm gonna tell you why I...
Chase every available thing
in skirt that I see.
Simply because you're married
to this beautiful woman,
you love her, she loves you,
doesn't mean everything will be perfect.
Because, Mo, it never is.
There are no fairy tale marriages.
Just weddings.
I know there are no fairy tale marriages,
but there are good...
There are great marriages.
My parents, they have a great marriage.
Like, they love each other so much
that it makes me jealous.
And I can only hope and wish that
I have that someday.
You see, life...
Life is a vicious circle.
Those that a married, want out.
Those that are not, want in.
Are you saying
you want to leave your wife?
Can't say it doesn't
cross my mind sometimes.
- Why?
- Because she...
She's boring.
Oh, no, no, no, don't get me wrong, now.
Okay? I mean...
She's beautiful, she's homely, she's...
And some guys probably like that,
but me...
I want more.
Okay? I want more excitement.
I want more adventure.
I want someone who's spontaneous,
someone who...
Who would get me wondering what
next step she's going to do.
And have you discussed this with her?
Not really.
Tell her.
Tell her what you want.
And if she doesn't get it, show her.
Just don't stop,
just make sure she gets it.
You just need to stop...
You need to stop this...
Philandering or whatever. There's...
There's no justification for adultery.
And aren't you even scared?
There are, like, STDs out there.
You could get an STD and worse still,
go home and give her one.
Since you've so earnestly convinced me,
I'll think about it. I'll work on it.
So, can I fire Bimpe?
She... She's incompetent!
- Hello.
- Hi.
My name is Dare. What is your name?
I'm Chika.
Hi, Chika. I really like your wristwatch.
Very nice, great taste.
Thank you.
How many I help you, please?
I'm here to see Mo,
Moduroti Bankole-Smith.
Can you point me in the direction
of her office?
Any appointment, please?
No, I don't have an appointment.
You're a woman, you like surprises, right?
Yeah, this is a real surprise visit.
- Will you?
- Okay...
Um, I'm just worried about my job.
I'm not sure...
Chika, you have nothing to worry about.
I'm an old friend.
And I guarantee you, you will not
be in any sort of trouble.
Oh, yes, she will.
But you don't know what I want her to do.
I don't need to know.
Coming from you, it's trouble.
I like your shoes.
You should get some Loubs.
Why are you here?
Won't you ask me to sit down?
I didn't invite you.
Yet, here I am.
How exactly did you find out
where my office is?
Well, let's just say that
your mom was a willing informant.
So, what do you want?
I was curious to see what your
office looked like. Not bad.
I know you're not that jobless
that you came here
just to see what my office looks like.
Yeah, it means I have a lot
of free time on my hands,
but that doesn't mean that I'm jobless.
I'm a man on a mission.
Which is?
To get you to have that drink with me.
I already told you,
the answer is no.
You're scared you will not be able
to resist my charm,
and then fall hopelessly in love with me?
It won't be your first time.
We were teenagers.
- I would hardly call that love.
- Uh-huh.
It was just hormones.
Infatuation, just a crush.
- Anything but love.
- Yes.
Call it what you like.
Think about that drink.
See you soon.
You're here early.
Well, I was supposed to be meeting
Jennifer for work,
but she got bored and said
she wanted to go out,
and since we were supposed
to be meeting here,
I just figured, we all just come
and you know...
Wait, hang on, hang on, hang on...
You mean, um... You mean Jennifer's here?
Yeah, she's in the ladies.
Mo, man, we were supposed
to meet here alone.
I know, I'm sorry.
You know how Jennifer is.
I thought we were supposed
to be meeting alone.
Yeah, Tseju, I said
we should meet, but not alone.
Just sit.
Well, you still could have said
there'd be three of us, not two.
Well, actually, four.
Jennifer's here, too.
You know I can't stand that girl.
I didn't know you were gonna be here.
Well, you've officially been punked.
It's not funny.
It is funny.
You know, I'll tell you what's not funny.
It's you girls not talking.
So, you know what,
we're all gonna sit here
and have you both settle
it out over drinks.
And besides, we're sharing the bill.
Well, consider it penance
for keeping matters, yes?
I'm sorry about the things I said.
I just...
I'm surprised you think so low of me.
Tseju, I don't.
I just want you to want more.
You deserve more.
You're beautiful
and you deserve the world.
- Come here, I missed you.
- I missed you.
Aw, look at them! Winning.
- Bring out your wallet.
- Please go and get the drinks.
I did it!
Oh, my goodness.
Is this not Tobe?
You look good.
Well, thanks.
Hi, Jennifer.
I remember the last time I saw you.
You were just...
You know.
Well, thanks, um...
You don't look bad, yourself.
And, uh, congrats on the wedding.
Aw, thank you.
Bet you she does that to everybody.
That's what she did
the first time I saw her.
Oh, wow, this is beautiful, yeah.
I know! It's just gorgeous.
Honestly, if I wasn't already engaged,
I'd probably consider taking you, too.
What is he, a toy?
Trust me, he's not interested.
Tseju, darling,
I didn't even know you were there.
Well, if you're losing your sight,
you really should book an appointment
with an optometrist.
- Tseju!
- Blind bat.
Right. Blind, indeed.
Ah, hey, Jennifer, so I... I hear
your groom is coming to town.
If he exists.
Actually, he'll be here tomorrow.
Yeah, and I can't wait to see him.
- Why did you invite this over?
- I've missed him so much!
- It's beautiful!
- I know!
You're going to look so beautiful
in your wedding dress.
I cannot wait.
We're walking down the aisle.
Everybody's eyes on me.
I can imagine.
Every girl's fantasy.
Yeah, well...
I can't believe you're getting married!
I'm gonna look amazing.
I'm sorry. Traffic was crazy.
Oh, that's okay.
Oh, Mo, I want you to meet Iyke.
The love of my life, and my husband-to-be.
Nice to finally put a face to the name.
Same here.
Now, the way Jennifer
has been talking about you
I feel like I've known you for ages.
Really? Jennifer?
Talk about someone else but herself?
That's a new one.
And where's your best man?
I assumed the both of you would
come together
just to get your measurements taken.
Oh, yeah, he'll be here soon.
I'm sure he's caught up in traffic.
- Ah.
- Yeah. Oh. There he is.
Hi, Dare.
- Jennifer.
- My man.
Glad you could make it.
Thank you.
You know Mo, don't you?
She's actually
the event planner for the wedding,
and she's been hounding me for days
to set up this meeting.
I remember Mo very well, actually.
Small world.
- Too small, if you ask me.
- Very, very small.
Jennifer, uh, can I have a word with you?
Just quickly.
- I'll just be with her, two minutes.
- Come on.
Just... You'll get her back
in two minutes, I promise.
Come on.
Have you lost your mind?
At what point were you planning
on telling me
that Dare Laguda
is your husband's best man?
Are you're gonna say
you'd forgotten that we had history?
I didn't think it was necessary.
Besides, you and Dare broke up
a hundred years ago.
- So?
- So, this is my wedding.
Stop making it about you.
Seriously? This is me
making this about me?
- Are you actually being serious right now?
- Oh, my goodness.
This is exactly why I didn't tell you.
I need Mo, the calculated,
organized event planner.
Not some love-struck, whiny teenager.
Listen. Mo, listen.
Get a grip, yes?
Otherwise, you are about to lose your job.
Be wise.
What was that about?
I was just as shocked
as you were, you know.
Seeing you here.
But you don't see me grabbing people
and pushing them into corners.
Do you mind? I'm not in the mood.
I... I don't understand
why you're so upset.
She could've told me.
And then what?
You'd have packed your bags
and moved out of town?
She didn't. Deal with it.
Thanks a lot.
So, did you get my message?
And I'm going to have Chika's head
for giving you my key.
Chika did not give me the key.
She just made sure it was delivered
to the right office.
Would you go out on a date with me?
I'll think about it.
You know, I'm not very good at begging.
Don't make me.
So I'll pick you up
at 8:00 p.m. Friday, fine?
Okay, fine, bye.
Get back to work.
Get back to work.
Hello, babe, what's up?
Hi, I'm good. How are you?
Yeah, I'm good. I'm just, uh...
I'm just heading home now.
It's been a long day. You know,
listen, I just wanna take a shower
- and then I'll join you guys later.
- Oh!
Is today the last Friday of the month?
Oh, come on, look at you, man.
I'm sure you didn't...
You haven't spoken with Tseju all day,
or else she would have reminded you.
I actually haven't spoken to her today,
and can't even make it.
Why? What's going on?
- Um, I have a date.
- You have...
...a date?
Mo, I thought you said you were done
with that whole dating crap out there.
Uh, dude...
Wait, have you been watching my vlogs?
Yes, I have.
What date are you going out on again?
Oh, are you serious? Wow.
That's... I didn't expect that,
that's a bit of a shock.
Wait, Tobe, I'll have to call you later,
my date's calling me.
All right, I'll speak to you later. Bye!
Yeah. All right, yeah, sure.
I'll be waiting, yeah.
Okay, then, see you soon.
Hello? Tseju.
Hang on, hang on. Please, tell me
you didn't know Mo had a date tonight.
You... You did?
Tseju, you...
Goodnight, Tseju.
What the hell is wrong with you, Tobe?
Oh, well, good evening to you, too.
Oh, please, I don't have time
for any of your sarcastic crap right now.
Why won't you just tell Mo
exactly how you feel about her
instead of taking out your frustration
on us innocent bystanders?
Tseju, what in heaven's name
are you talking about?
Don't do that.
You know what I'm talking about.
The whole universe knows
exactly what I'm talking about.
Except for Mo, who you won't tell
how you feel about her.
I don't understand.
What? It's not that simple.
But it is that simple.
You just sit your friend down,
you tell her how you feel,
and you save her from this dating madness
she's subjecting herself to.
Well, thanks to you.
I had nothing to do with it.
She started it!
Well, you helped.
Look, just tell her.
Look, Tseju, I've been telling Mo
the same thing for the past months, now.
But she never ever takes me seriously.
Why should she take you seriously
when you don't sound convincing enough?
I mean, how convincing
am I supposed to be?
Give my life in exchange for hers
as a ransom?
Uh, yeah, if that's what it takes.
What exactly are you afraid of?
Tseju, Mo and I have come a long way.
I'm afraid things will change if...
If we got together.
For goodness' sakes, Tobe,
that's the whole point.
Things aren't supposed to remain the same.
You're supposed to go from being friends
to being lovers,
and eventually the Earth will go back
to revolving around the sun again.
Look, I don't care how you do it.
You can put it in a song.
Do something, just man up
and tell her how you feel!
So, are you telling me
that you actually hired out
this whole restaurant
just to take me to dinner?
Yes. Why does that surprise you?
It's quite a lot,
just to try and impress me.
So, are you impressed?
I'm just wondering
how many other ladies
you've done the same thing for.
For all I know, you could have
taken two ladies out this week.
Given them the same treatment.
Made them feel special.
This is about Sandra.
Yeah, this is about Sandra.
haven't you forgiven me?
Oh, I have forgiven.
I just haven't forgotten.
Mo, really, we were teenagers.
These things happen.
I mean, not like
I'm making an excuse for it,
but it wasn't like you were giving it up
and hormones were raging.
Do you know what? Let's just stop there.
'Cause this apology
is even worse than the original one.
So we'll just stop there
before you dig any deeper.
All right, fine.
Let's just start fresh.
I'm sorry.
But I will be ordering
the most expensive thing on the menu.
I'll be having lobster tonight.
Please order for two.
Well... mmm.
- I don't even...
- Really?
I can't justify that, 'cause, yeah.
I was highly offended,
because that was so rude.
And you could have bought
better champagne.
I don't drink just, you know, Brut.
You know that I drink ros, right?
Just to let you know for next time.
Well, our second date will be better,
- guaranteed.
- If I agree to go on one with you.
But yes, um...
I had a great night.
That means my charm still works.
Don't start.
So, I will call you.
Good night.
Good night.
Good night.
So, I take it the date went well.
Honey, she's here!
Seriously, you two
need to stop babysitting me.
No, actually, it's... It's your mother.
She insisted we wait up for you.
She was curious.
We were both curious.
- So?
- So what?
How did it go?
It was fine.
You were humming.
Then it has to be better than fine.
Good night, Dad.
Good night, Mum.
Oh, I think it went well!
I think so, too.
Hi, guys!
I know it's been a while
and a lot has happened.
I would like to introduce you
to the new Mo.
The happy Mo.
The love-struck Mo, yes.
I met a guy.
Well, he's an old friend,
but he's a whole new man.
And he's thoughtful and charming
and handsome.
And he has a very big ego
so I hope he doesn't see this.
But yes. I think I'm in love.
You finally picked up.
I was beginning to think you dropped
off the face of the planet, man.
You know I've been busy
planning Jenny's wedding.
But I... I actually pinged you.
Yeah, you said you were gonna call back,
but you never did.
I'm sorry.
Look, everything has been so crazy.
Like, she calls me every five minutes
to get updates
now that the wedding is just
three weeks away.
Like, I can't wait for it to be over
- so I can get back to...
- Hang on a second, Mo.
We need to talk.
What's going on? Are you okay?
Yeah, yeah, yeah, sure. Everything's fine,
it's just, uh... Hold on, hold on.
Yeah, everything's fine, it's just, uh...
Uh, I have a few important things
I need to discuss with you, uh...
I was wondering, are you free?
Can you... Can you come over?
Well, I was going to take a nap,
before Jennifer bombards my phone
with calls again, but okay.
Yeah, sure, why not?
Oh, yeah?
Oh, cool, I'll be expecting you, then.
Okay, but wait, wait.
Are you sure you're okay?
Yeah, Mo, I'm fine.
But just get here.
All right, then. Okay.
All right, bye.
Man, Tobenna, man,
how do you tell her this, man?
Listen here, Mo.
It's me, it's me, Tobenna.
I'm your guy, I've been trying
to reach out to you for months now,
but you hardly ever take notice.
Man, that doesn't even sound
convincing enough, man.
I mean, how do you tell a woman
you love her?
this is ridiculous.
- Hi.
- Hey, beautiful.
Hello, handsome.
Finally, you admit.
Please, don't let your head swell.
It's a statement of fact, honey.
Just happy that you finally see the light.
I want you to come over to my place.
When? 'Cause I'm actually
on my way out now.
- Oh, oh, yeah?
- Going to see a friend. Why, what's up?
Uh, I thought you were
supposed to be resting.
Weren't you saying you're stressed?
What can I do? When a friend needs you,
you have to answer, right?
So since you're
running errands for friends,
do you think you could possibly
stop by my place first?
- It's a surprise.
- Hmm?
A surprise?
Yes, and you need to get here fast.
What, the surprise has
and expiration time on it?
Something like that.
What kind of a surprise is that?
Well, if I told you,
it won't be a surprise now, would it?
Just ask no more questions
and get here quickly.
Okay, but I have to leave early
to go see my friend.
Okay, cool.
What's going on?
Won't you at least kiss me first?
Will you tell me what's going on?
Why are you outside?
Well, I told you you had to hurry.
- And I got here as soon as I could.
- Okay.
Get in the car.
For what?
The surprise.
What's... What's the surprise?
Are we really
going to do this now?
Well, I'm not getting into a car
if I don't know where I'm going.
Fine. Women.
You've been complaining
that you were stressed,
so I decided to take you
to SA for a few days.
I can't. I can't just up and leave.
Yes, you can. Get in the car.
I can't! Jennifer's wedding is in,
like, two weeks.
And you have everything figured out.
But what if something goes wrong,
- and she can't reach me...
- Mo.
You're only going for the weekend,
and if she needs to get you,
she can talk to your boss directly.
They both agreed.
Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait,
wait, wait, wait.
How did you do that?
Let's just say that, um...
I have my way with people.
They can't resist my charms.
Oh, wait, my friend's calling me.
- Oh, no.
- No, no, no, no, no, wait, wait.
I have to...
Get in the car.
But I... I don't have any luggage.
Don't worry about that.
I have a MasterCard.
It's all the luggage that you need.
How did you even get my passport?
My mum.
And she was more than willing.
- Mmm.
- Can we go now?
You know, you're bossy.
- Yes.
- And arrogant.
That, too, but you still love me that way.
- Can we go now?
- Whatever.
How could you say unavailable?
It just rang off right now.
Your call has been forwarded
to an automatic voice message system.
At the tone, please record your message.
When you have finished recording,
you may hang up,
or press one for more options.
Will you at least calm down and sit down?
You're making me nervous.
Well, I'm just wondering
what's taking so long.
Look, I told you already,
there's nothing wrong with Mo.
How do you know that?
She was supposed to show up at my place.
She never did.
I've been trying to reach her
on the phone,
- she's not...
- Yes, yes, yes. You told me.
Tseju, I don't even understand
how you can be so calm
- through all of this, eh?
- Maybe it's because...
I'm not the one who's in love with Mo.
Besides, if there was anything wrong
with her,
you'd have heard them
mourning from the gates.
Then where the hell is she?
Good afternoon, ma'am.
- Good afternoon, ma'am.
- Oh!
Tobe. Tseju.
It's been a long time I've seen you both.
- How are you?
- We're fine, ma'am.
Well, that's good.
Uh, ma'am, is... Is...
Is Mo okay?
Well, he...
We wanted to...
We tried to call her
and we couldn't get through,
so we wanted to make sure she's okay.
Oh, well, of course she's okay.
She's in South Africa
having fun with Dare.
- Oh! Oh.
- Yes.
She's didn't tell you two?
Oh, well, he decided to surprise her
with a trip.
It was the most romantic thing.
Uh, ma'am...
Sorry, you don't mind I
get something from the car?
Oh. Sure.
What time is she getting back, ma'am?
This evening, or tomorrow morning.
Okay, ma'am. Could you please tell her
that we stopped by?
She'll give us a call
when she gets in?
- Sure. I will.
- Okay. Thank you.
Is Tobe okay?
Thank you, ma'am.
You're welcome, honey.
No, I can't.
Look, I'm swamped with work
because of you.
So I won't be seeing you anytime soon.
Listen, don't worry.
You will survive, okay?
Look, I have to go.
You're so naughty.
All right, okay, I have to go, seriously.
All right, then. Bye.
That's Dare, I take it.
Yes, and I can't believe it.
Do you know what? It feels like a dream.
- Apparently.
- Where's Tobe?
I thought he was meeting us here.
- What?
- Seriously?
Did you think he'd show
after the stunt you pulled?
- What stunt?
- Really?
What are you talking about?
There's only so much a man can take, Mo.
What are you talking about, Tseju?
Are you seriously asking me that?
Yes, what are you talking about?
What's all this drama?
Have you called Tobe since you got back?
No, I've been busy.
- With Dare.
- No, actually, with work.
Now are you going to tell me
what's going on?
You were supposed to meet Tobe.
At his house, remember that?
And then you just disappeared.
No phone call, no text, nothing.
The guy was worried out of his mind.
Yeah, but I didn't plan it.
Dare just came to my house.
It was so unexpected.
Was I gonna say no?
I'm just surprised about you and Dare.
You were dead-set against
dating him in the first place.
And then you changed your mind
and I thought,
"Okay, no harm can come of this,"
because you've dated before.
But now things are moving so fast.
Don't you think
they're moving really fast?
Slow down?
Slow down for what?
Listen, I've finally found
a guy who's charming,
handsome, and sweeps me off my feet.
And the best part about it is
I've known him for years.
What am I slowing down for?
Well, there is a reason
you broke up in the first place.
- Yes!
- Remember that?
And back then, he was a young man
with raging hormones.
Now, he's a mature man.
Okay. I'm really not trying
to pick a fight with you
or criticize your decision.
I'm just making an observation.
Because I want you to be sure.
I took your advice.
And I don't want you
to settle for less, either.
I won't, trust me.
Believe me, it's fine.
- Yeah?
- Yes!
Okay, but you still have to call Tobe
and apologize.
- Yeah, yeah, I'll call him.
- Fix it.
I will, I will, I will.
Right, tell me about your trip.
- Oh, my God!
- How'd it go?
It was amazing.
What's up?
What's up with you?
I'm fine.
Yeah, I can see that.
I was worried.
You weren't picking up my calls.
You weren't returning my calls.
I'm sorry, I've just been, uh, busy.
You've been busy?
What, too busy to call me back?
Come on, Mo.
There have been times when you
couldn't take or return my calls,
but I never made a fuss of it.
The world doesn't have to
revolve around you.
You know that, yeah?
What did I do?
Clearly, you're angry with me
and I don't know why.
I'm not angry with you.
Yes, you are.
Look, we've been friends
for a long time, Tobe.
I know you.
No, you don't.
Yes, I do.
You don't, Mo.
What's going on?
You're my best friend.
Therein lies the problem, Mo.
What's that supposed to mean?
Tell me, Mo, why are you here?
I came here 'cause I missed you
and I wanted to see you, but apparently...
You know what? Forget it.
I'm sorry I disturbed you.
- I'm sorry.
- Why?
Why am I sorry?
Why are you angry?
I'm not angry with you, Mo, it's just...
It's just that you keep
taking me for granted
and I'm sick and tired of it already.
I don't.
See, you don't even know it,
but you do.
Well, I'm sorry.
- There.
- I...
- I didn't mean to...
- That's exactly what I don't
want you to do.
Be sorry.
I want you to change, Mo.
I want you to...
I want you to stop seeing me as... As...
I think the point I'm trying
to make here, Mo, is
I want you to start seeing me.
I see you, Tobe.
No, you don't.
I'm such a part of your life,
I've melted into the background already.
Listen, I don't know about any of this
"melting into the background."
But, it's because you are
a part of my life.
That's what makes you special.
I can tell you absolutely
any... Anything.
It's not everyone that I can do that with
so I don't understand what you're talk...
Don't pick it up.
Mo, you just got here, don't pick it up.
It's work.
What, right now?
Okay, okay, I'm coming.
I have to go.
Can we talk about this later?
I'll call you.
But that wasn't what we agreed.
No, no, no, no, no.
You said the structure would be up by now.
Listen, do you know what?
I'm not even having this conversation
over the phone anymore.
Is your manager around?
Is your manager around, yes or no?
Okay, I'm going to come there now.
I'm on my way over.
I don't... No, no, no, no, no.
I will see you in twenty minutes.
Hello, Lanre.
Yeah, so I was just speaking
to the people, the...
They're just telling me stories.
Honestly, I don't know
what their problem is.
They said the overflow structure
isn't up yet and they can't do anything.
All right.
No, no, no, no, I'm going there...
I'm going there now.
I'm going to see their manager,
so it's fine, I'll sort it out.
Yes, yes, yes, all right.
Okay, I'll see you soon, bye.
Hi, Jennifer.
Hi, how are you?
Oh, I... I have it with me now.
I have his tux.
But it's in my car.
Nothing will happen to it.
Okay, okay, if it makes
you feel comfortable.
I'll go and give it to him myself.
Okay, I'll do that for you.
I'll let you know when I've done it, okay?
All right, bye, bye.
Oh, Jesus.
The door was open.
Hey, Mo, Mo.
Mo, it's not at all like that.
Don't touch me.
I'm sorry
for my unprofessional behavior.
I knocked, but nobody opened the door.
Mo, look, I can explain.
See, what you saw...
Was none of my business.
I came...
I came to drop this off.
I need you to get it to Mr. Iyke.
The bride says...
She needs it to get to him.
Mo, look.
That girl means nothing to me.
It was purely physical, nothing more.
It was just physical,
it was nothing else. Mo...
It was nothing, seriously.
It was what?
It was just physical, it wasn't...
It was purely physical. Look...
Nothing more. Just...
You know it's you that I love.
You can't say I haven't shown that love,
you know this.
Come on.
Goodbye, Mr. Dare.
What's going on?
It's okay, it's okay, it's okay.
Come on, talk to me, what's going on?
- What happened, Mo?
- He...
It's okay, it's okay. Come on.
I was so shocked.
And the worst...
The worst part about it,
was that he didn't think
it was bad, because...
Because he didn't have
any feelings for her.
Well maybe, that's because
people like Dare just believe
it's okay to treat a woman any how.
And at the end of the day,
just shower her with gifts
and think that's enough
to make the pain go away.
I'm not that kind of woman.
I don't want a man
to shower me with gifts.
I want a man who will respect me.
Respect us.
I want love.
I want faithful love.
I want true love.
I want some...
I want someone...
Who truly gets you.
Someone who genuinely cares about you.
Who sees past your little faults.
Someone who wants the best for you.
Treats you as though
you're the only woman
in the whole world.
Someone who would give his heart,
his body and his soul.
And love you with everything
that he has ever, ever, ever had.
I'm sorry,
I'm sorry. I can't do this.
Honey, can I come in?
Can I come in?
Oh, honey, are you okay?
I'm fine.
You sure?
I'm fine, Mum.
Dare cheating on me
wasn't the worst thing in the world.
Oh, honey. I'm so sorry.
What for?
You didn't do anything.
Well, I encouraged it.
I mean, I just thought you guys
would be good together.
So did I.
Look, you have to face
the rest of the world.
You can't keep hiding.
I'm not hiding, Mum.
You haven't been to work in three days.
Now, I don't know you to miss work.
I just need some time
to sort some things out.
Tobe's downstairs waiting for you.
I don't want to see him.
This is the seventh time
he is going to be here.
Why are you avoiding him?
I'm not.
I'm not ready to see him yet.
You're gonna have to be ready
sometime, honey.
You can't keep hiding.
Mum, I don't want to see Tobe.
Oluwanimoduroti Bankole-Smith.
It's complicated.
How complicated can it be?
We kissed.
Oh honey, that's not complicated.
That's interesting.
What's so complicated about kissing him?
He's my best friend.
And it just felt...
And confusing, and...
Surprisingly good.
And again I ask.
Why is that so complicated?
Tobe likes you.
Of course he's liked me, Mum.
He's my best friend.
I don't mean it like that.
I mean, he's always been in love with you.
You didn't know?
Oh, gosh, you had no idea.
Mum, are you saying you've known
all this time and you didn't tell me?
Because I thought you knew,
and you just didn't feel the same way.
Look, sweetheart,
with all that's happened,
the question you need to ask yourself is,
how do you really feel about him?
That's what I've been
trying to figure out.
You and Tobe have been friends
for so many years.
I've watched the two of you
over the years,
and I see the way he looks at you,
how he cares for you.
He adores you.
And from everything that you've told me,
there's obviously chemistry
between the two of you.
And if that isn't love, honey,
I don't know what is.
Are you saying that this is it?
...is what I've been looking for,
and it's just been right there?
I think so.
Now, will you get dressed?
And come downstairs and see him.
I'll be down in five minutes.
By the way,
what's Tobe's last name?
So you're going to go from
Bankole-Smith to Okoronkwo.
Get ready, honey. Love waits.
Oh, will you
get on with it, already?
Mum, do you mind?
Just trying to help.
- I think we should...
- About the other day...
I was just going to say
I think we should sit.
what about the other day?
I'm sorry I kissed you.
You're sorry?
Well yeah, because, uh...
I reckon I kind of made you
feel uncomfortable.
I mean, you're my homie.
Things don't have to be
awkward between us.
Things don't have to be awkward
between us.
So, why don't we just pretend
that kiss never happened,
and just roll over and get back
to the way things were?
I kind of liked it.
And I thought you did, too.
Oh yeah, I did, I did, I...
I did, I...
I do.
I liked the kiss.
Oluwa, I want to do it again.
And again.
And all over again.
A thousand dollars says your mom
is watching us right now.
Mum, you can go now.
I love you, Mo.
Isn't it funny how you can spend
all your time chasing your own tail
and looking for love
in all the wrong places?
When all that you've ever wanted,
ever longed for, ever hoped for,
is right here beside you?
It's one week after Jennifer's wedding
and thank God that it's over.
The nightmare of having to look Dare
in his arrogant, cheating
face one more time is gone.
And at least, one good thing
came out of it.
Tseju met someone.
