Is Love Sustainable? (2022) s01e03 Episode Script

Episode 3

- What are you going to make?
- Hot pot.
Kyoka, where did you put the new toothpaste?
New toothpaste Kyoka?
Hot! Ah! No way!
Well, you should prepare beforehand.
- What?
- Oh, ah
- Toothpaste.
- Oh.
In the left-hand drawer of the sink.
Oh, thanks.
If you're tired, don't worry about breakfast.
No, I was just thinking about something that's all.
I have someone I love!
Oh, I see
- Huh?
- Well, uhm
How are things with the person you like?
- Nothing much.
- We have dinner and stuff
- But
- Dinner?
- What?
- No, no, no. I
I've decided to continue with the marriage hunting.
I don't want Kyoka to have to take care of me in the future.
You don't want to be alone and not know where to find toothpaste.
Left drawer. I remember.
You know
- If you remarry
- She's going to live with you, right?
Yes, yes First, I'll invite her to my house.
- After a period of living together
- Right.
And being so close
You don't need an invitation to come over, right?
And if you have kids
What? Are you against remarriage?
- If that's the case
- No, no, no, no
Do your best and put everything you have into it, dad.
Or else you'll be looking for stuff all the time, that's unacceptable.
Kyoka, as your dad, I just want you to be happy.
You don't have to say that.
When it's time for you to say something, "Is that so?" is fine.
Sa-sugadesu: As expected (of someone great)
Shi-ranakattadesu: I didn't know that!
Su-teki desu: That's fantastic!
Se-nsu arimasu: You have good sense
So-udesuka: Is that so?
"So" is
"Is that so?"
These are the "Sa-Shi-Su-Se-So"
These are the basis of conversation.
The most important thing in matchmaking
is "aizuchi", which is making interjections showing you are paying attention to the other person.
It's the first step in conversation.
All the positive words of affirmation
- That makes sense.
- Let's practice it out loud.
- "Sa." As expected.
- As expected.
As expected.
"Shi" I didn't know that!
I didn't know that!
- "Su" That's fantastic!
- That's fantastic!
About the other day, I'm sorry for the trouble I caused regarding my daughter.
Not at all.
Your back seems to be better.
Yes, it was a miracle I found a good doctor.
I'm glad
I've also processed Kyoka-san's membership withdrawal without any issues.
"Sasuga desu!" (As expected!)
- Actually
- I think she met someone she likes.
- "Shiranakatta desu!" (I didn't know that!)
- Aha
- Excuse me.
- Yes.
- Kyoka-sensei, this is for you.
- Thank you.
- Kyoka-sensei, a moment.
- Yes?
Mikako-sensei has been acting strange this morning.
The feeling of your heart's not in the right place?
You understand after all.
Somehow, today I can't concentrate.
- Love lover?
- No.
- Oh! Yes, yes, yes.
- Love, right? Love.
When I'm thinking about someone, I can't think of anything else
- That's it!
- What?
"Fan activity." (Fan Club)
"Shaba Curry"
Blue sky.
What does it mean?
To live in a genuine, real town/street.
- What does that mean?
- Yeah
Huh? Uncle?
I'm Hayate.
- Hello.
- Oh, hello.
- I'm home.
- Hey.
Dad! What's with all that?
Welcome home.
Hayate is moving in from today.
No, no, no
What's the difference between "to live" and "living in"?
"Living in" means "to continue to live in"
and implies a sense of continuity.
It is prominent in real estate advertising and they even call it a "Mansion Poem"
These dumplings are delicious.
I'm glad. I put shiso in it.
Then what's the difference between "cohabitation" and "living together"?
Cohabitation is
lovers living together. If it lasts more than three years
It can be considered a common-law marriage.
Oh! Then can I live with you for the next three years, OK?
Then Kyoka and I will be related.
Not gonna happen.
And why on earth are you living here in the first place?
Why not? Hayate's having trouble at his place because of a leak.
And it's Hayate, he's stayed at our place so many times before. You know each other well, don't you?
But you're talking about when we were kids, right?
Didn't you have dinner with Hayate recently?
Weren't you talking about him earlier?
What are you talking about?
- Absolutely not.
- That's fine.
I'm sorry if my presence is a bother?
It's just that when I'm with all of you, I remember those happier days.
You're not a bother, I'm happy that you're here too.
Really? Uncle is a "maji-kami" (true god)!
"Maji-kami" that's a good word - True God
You young people really use lots of interesting words, don't you?
Now he's completely in a roll
If Yoko was here, she'd have a welcome party with songs and stuff
That would have been fun.
Living together
there's a certain feeling that comes with that.
Somehow, I think you've got it the other way round.
I took a bath first.
Oh Did you rearrange the drawers and the fridge?
Oh, sorry. You don't like it?
No, it's great. Thanks.
You're surprisingly tidy.
The kitchen's all clean.
Not bad, isn't it? Cohabitation
Living together. Or rather
We're just living in the same place.
At least consider us living together.
- Mr. Leaking House.
- What's that?
1st Year of Starting a Business Textbook
She wasn't a housemate, was she?
Oh, I fell asleep.
"Se" Sen You have good sense.
You have good sense.
- Yes, sir.
- Thank you.
- Good morning.
- Good morning.
- Sorry, I overslept.
- No problem.
- Tea or coffee?
- Oh, I'll have hot water.
- Okay.
- It's okay, I'll get it myself.
- No, I'll get it for you.
- Thank you.
- Maybe it's not so bad after all
- Hmm?
Oh nothing.
- Dad.
- Yeah?
- Notebook.
- Here.
I didn't know that!
And don't take it for granted that Hayate's always going to make tea for you.
I'm fine, it's not like that.
Don't coddle him. If you leave him alone, he really won't be able to do anything.
What's the matter with you? Treating me like a child.
If only you were as cute as a kid that would be nice.
Some kids are just not that cute.
- What?
- See, you're hardly what I'd call cute.
What do you mean?
- Kyoka, the time!
- Hmm?
Thanks. Dad, do things yourself!
- Huh?
- Have a good day.
Today I was
a thief.
A time thief.
I overslept. I was late.
Being late is stealing someone else's time.
In yoga,
you must not steal.
It's a very important teaching.
Taking away someone's time,
takes away friendships, trust,
and losing everything we hold dear,
It's not just physical things.
It's about the invisible things like time, privileges
Kindness is stolen away.
be careful of thieves.
Where is it? My registration ticket
- Uncle, your ticket.
- Ah
Thank you
Here it is.
- My housemate.
- I'm his housemate.
Here you go.
I'm sorry.
Does it hurt?
No, it doesn't.
How's your marriage hunting going?
Yes, I'm going for a marriage interview.
I see.
It's my first time. I don't know how it'll go.
Sa-Shi-Su-Se-So conversation points
I'll prescribe you some painkillers.
- And some time-based medications.
- Oh, time-based medicine.
As expected, Hinata-san, you're such a skillful doctor.
Oh, no, I'm not.
I.. didn't know that your X-rays were so good.
You're right. They're very clean, aren't they?
Bones are beautiful, aren't they?
Is. Is that so?
- You think so?
- Well yeah.
I just love the structure and formation of bones.
They're so mysterious in their own way.
Nothing is wasted, everything is functional,
and their design, such beautiful curves.
Oh, I'm sorry.
That's fantastic.
I didn't know. I didn't know that
that bones could be so
Sss Sense You have such a good sense and you like bones so much.
Is that so?
That's why I'm sure your marriage interview will go well.
Thank you very much.
Now then, is there anything else
Lately my shoulder
- My shoulder hurts.
- Which one
- This one?
- The right one yes
The back one
- Shall I take an x-ray then?
- Please do.
So, in entrepreneurship
Role models
It's important to talk to the senior entrepreneurs you aspire to work with.
As a result, I'm sure that your vision will take shape.
When I talk to these "role models,
because the yoga business is a small world,
before I even tell my boss I'm starting out
I'm afraid they'll already know about it
Is it possible that your apartment
is near Kanpachi?
No, um
DDoDo you
Do you have a housekeeper?
No, I don't.
It would be nice if I did.
Of course.
Today, shall we go somewhere that you like to eat?
- Please, go ahead.
- Okay.
- Hello?
- Why aren't you answering your LINE messages??
Let's have a drink.
And who's that handsome childhood friend of yours?
Wait, he's inviting me out for dinner.
What? A date with your childhood friend?
No! No!
Um If now's not a good time
No, it's fine. Uhm
Just some old friends.
Then we should do it another time.
Kyoka, could it be you've been making donations?
Because it's incredible.
Your childhood friend grows up to be a well-educated, good-looking guy who can do housework and moves into your house
That's more unlikely than winning the lottery!
You're so lucky, and yet your unhappiness is a whole different level.
- Riho, that's not it!
- What?
Cohabitation is like crab sticks.
What are you talking about?
I want to eat crab.
But it's too much trouble to peel it, and it's expensive.
So I'll just settle for crab sticks, isn't that a good idea?
No. Crab is crab.
Cohabitation is like a pseudo-marriage, isn't it?
When you're cohabitating, it's like "Why can't we just stay like this?"
A total opposite from a real marriage.
For him, it's like"I'm getting married, and I have my whole life ahead of me."
I don't have to think about all that troublesome stuff like money and kids. It's so much easier.
Where did Kazuma go today?
Camping on Saturday. He's going straight from work.
He cares for nature more than he cares for people sometimes.
Living together sure takes up a lot of the other person's time, doesn't it?
That's why, Kyoka.
If you want to live together just because you like him you shouldn't!
The person I like
is living with someone else.
There's someone you like?
Hi, I'm back
- Heehee
- Heehee.
Single father or
a troublesome partner
He said, "I don't want to get married."
Are you saying it's because of that woman?
Nijiro, can you get the hexagonal wrench?
- I'll get it.
- Thanks.
You've been busy lately?
I have more clients now.
Sit up like this.
- And breathe deeply.
- It seems to help you relax a little.
Yoga breathing.
You're like an open book.
- What?
- Your girlfriend teaches Yoga.
- You're into her, right?
- What?
No, she's not my girlfriend.
Oh, sure sounds like a girlfriend
As long as she's not a bad influence on you, it's fine.
Oh, everything's so neat and tidy.
It's normal.
Because, you used to think that garbage would just disappear automatically, right?
People who are good at household chores should do what they are good at.
You were good for nothing, but you've come a long way since then.
You've grown by leaps and bounds.
I'm sorry.
That was a little mean.
Well it's the truth.
Kindness doesn't come from words.
They're brought about from actions.
Do your best!
- All I had was a screwdriver.
- Eh?
- Okay Niji, Mommy's going home now.
- Okay.
The Chair! Fix it.
- I'm home.
- Welcome back.
Ah, my good-looking childhood friend!
- You're still awake?
- You're really drunk.
What's this?
The room and kitchen are clean.
Oh, we must have been parent and child in a previous life.
- Nah, at least make us a couple.
- Ha-ha-ha
Hayate, thank you.
- Yes, hello?
- Hello?
Sorry to call so late, is it okay to talk now?
Yes, I'm fine.
There's something I forgot to tell you today.
Oh there is a woman after all.
Actuallyshe runs a personal gym.
Ah, a girlfriend who runs a gym
She's a former client at our marriage agency.
She's a role model for female entrepreneurs, so I was wondering
Oh~ I get it Ahh
I can introduce you to her.
Thank you.
That's great.
Is that why you contacted me?
When I get an idea, I have to act on it.
I brought you some water.
- Dad. Thank you.
- Leave it here.
Huh? Are you still drunk?
- Are you okay?
- I'm fine.
I'm sorry. My dad's drunk. He's kind of
- So much tension.
- Oh
Yes, his voice sounds young
Okay, then
Oh god!
My head hurts
- Hangover?
- Ugh
- Hayate
- Yes?
I'm really sorry about last night.
Sorry for what?
I'll make breakfast.
I'll make it this morning.
Were you thinking about something else again?
I knew it, I should have just prepared bread.
Yeah, it's savory.
- It's very savory.
- What?
No, Hayate, take these pickled plums as antidote for poison.
- Pickled plums?
- Yes.
- Nice reaction!
- Ha-ha-ha
Hayate, can I have a word?
Yeah, sure.
If you want to live together
I only have one condition.
What's that?
Me and my dad, you don't have to take care of us.
I don't care at all.
I don't need you to cook for us, or clean up for us.
I mean, you're like a god, but
I can't live with a god.
Hayate You never liked pickled plums, did you?
You remembered?
It's okay if you don't smile all the time.
Even if you don't like something.
Even if you're a little grumpy.
Even if you're sloppy.
Even if we fight.
I can never hate you, Hayate.
Hayate, you're a good kid.
Even now, I know you're a nice guy.
- Huh!
- Oh
This is Japan.
- Understand?
- Yes.
So, you've admitted we're living together now, that's a step up.
Hmm, that's overly optimistic.
Teacups and chopsticks? Don't we have those at home?
Don't worry about it. Isn't that what you said, Kyoka?
Oh, since this is a special date, shall we get matching bowls?
It's not a date, we're just shopping together.
Where can I find the hexagonal wrenches?
One of our attendants will be with you in a moment.
Dad, what has one entrance and two exits?
Two exits?
You're right! Dad, you figured it out.
I figured it out!
Look at this, so cute.
- Let's get a pillow first.
- Okay.
So, do we get matching pillows?
- Yeah, let's get matching pillows.
- Woohoo!
Ahh, on second thought.
- What
- Let's start with the teacups, teacups.
- Okay, pick one, pick one.
- Let's pick one.
- Blue, red
- Okay, okay, okay.
- Hey!!
- Why?
Hurry up and pick one.
Excuse me, come this way.
Eh? Hayate-sensei!
Oh, Nijiro!
- Hello.
- Ah
Oh, Hayate
What's going on, Seita?
- Sorry to keep you waiting.
- Thank you.
- Ahh
- Uhm
- Go ahead.
- Go ahead.
Are you dating Fuwa-san?
Huh? No, I'm not.
- No, I'm not.
- Ah
Well, because
Oh, the phone call? You heard him, didn't you?
Yes, I did.
He's going to live at my place for a while.
His apartment was flooded because of a leak.
My dad got all excited
Oh that's why
- So that's what happened.
- Yes, that's right.
That's right.
So, did sensei move out because of a robbery?
"Love Robber", something like that.
Actually, I
- I saw
- Dad!
Hayate-sensei's moving, can we help him?
Thanks Nijiro, but it's fine.
- Sister here will help me.
- Yup, but thanks anyway.
I'll help you.
- What?
- I'll help you.
That is, if you don't mind?
I wanna help too!
I'll get that, it's heavy.
Don't knock a Yoga instructor's strength.
I hope Nijiro and his dad are okay.
Uncle's having fun too, isn't he?
Red light Green light!
Red light Green light!
Nijiro, bring me the smartphone.
Just move
Coming Soon - Scheduled leakage repair works
Sorry for the inconvenience
I'm doing the Chaturanga pose
it builds up your biceps.
- This is kind of hard, isn't it?
- It's hard.
Wow, that's amazing!
- They're so tight.
- It's tight.
I got a call from the clinic that you hurt your back.
I'm about to go on marriage interview.
Ah, sorry for interrupting an important event.
Oh, my back is fine now. It's okay.
It doesn't hurt?
That's good.
If it gets worse, please contact me.
Thank you very much. Goodbye.
We're going back now, I'll drive the car with Kyoka.
Higashimura, I'll call a cab for you, thanks for all your hard work.
Oh that's fine, I'll drive.
Then, I'll take the train home.
You two can go together.
I'll see you later.
Are you really OK with the move?
I used to work part-time as a mover.
I'm quite used to it.
Then, I won't hold you back.
Go for it! Go for it!
- Keep going straight.
- Okay.
- This way
- Yes.
Let's leave it here for now.
- What? Wait! Wait!
- Wait a minute. This is
(This is Kyoka's room)
- I'm kidding.
- What?
Okay. Back up, please.
- Put it down.
- Okay.
- Thank you very much.
- Not at all.
Oh, watch out for those Sneaker boxes!
- Oh
- Oh!
- Sorry
- Oh
Wait! Stop it, please!
- Sorry.
- Ha-ha-ha
- Do you know it?
- Yes.
1994 Air Jordan 1 Chicago
Wow! This is a Chicago!
It's a 1994 replica.
Wow! How did you get it?
My friend in L.A. just happened to find it when she went to San Diego.
- Lucky
- That's right.
Hey, what are you two doing?
- Sorry
- Sorry
Something happened!
Hinata Akari
Yes? Hello?
How's your back?
Well it's fine.
That's good.
If that's the case
Can we
Can we meet?
Thanks for the hard work.
Good work with the move.
Oh! Moving Soba!
Let's eat.
I hate soba
Oh, sorry
Then, shall I make you some onigiri?
No, we'll just go to the convenience store.
- I want to eat onigiri.
- Nijiro
- Okay then.
- Shall we all make onigiri together?
Yes! Thank you.
Okay, then, let's start with
I'm going out for a bit.
Is your back really okay?
Excuse me, I'm off.
It's like he's going for a marriage interview.
Firstly, on your hands,
put some water. Roll it around, all over.
Then, put a little salt on it, like this.
Then make a hole in the middle.
That's right, that's right. Very good, very good.
Now fill in your favorite ingredients on top.
I've made the tuna and mayo.
Thank you.
I don't like pickled plums, so make mine without any, OK?
Got it.
Dad, cut the seaweed properly.
Yes I will.
Put the rice on top.
Nice, nice, nice.
Then take one piece.
Let's use two of them.
- Finished!
- It's done!
Thank you for the food.
Are you full?
Can I take some leftovers for Mommy?
It's Mommy's day tomorrow.
Mommy's day?
My mom's house is on the top floor,
and it has a better view than ours, it's gorgeous.
You live in the same apartment?
Nijiro, why don't you and I go to the park to play soccer?
- Really? Yes.
- Alright!
- Okay, let's go.
- Okay.
"Let's move on to a serious relationship."
That's what he said.
He wants to skip the interim friendship?
He's younger, cheerful,
and kind.
He said he's thinking about getting married by the end of the year.
As expected.
And then we talked about life at home
I have a cat.
A 12-year-old female and a 6-year-old male.
Oh, I didn't know that.
he's allergic to cats.
That's fantastic
I'm sorry, I said the wrong thing.
That person
is making me give up my cats. I can't live with them anymore
I can't get married
Is that so?
Yes, that's right.
Except for the allergies, I don't have any problems with him.
- Is that so
- Yes it is.
I have a friend who loves cats.
She was the one who gave them to me.
- Is that so?
- Yes it is.
If not for the marriage, I can continue to see my cats.
Is that.
how it is?
Hinata, the cats are part of your family, aren't they?
For example, there are marriages where you don't live together with your partner.
Isn't that possible?
Nowadays there are many different types of marriages.
You're surprisingly flexible, aren't you?
Words change their meaning over time.
The word "living in" was coined during the Heian period
A man goes back and forth to a woman's house to live.
- It started to mean "commuter marriage"
- I see
a marriage between spouses who live apart, usually because of the locations of their jobs, and who regularly travel to be together, as on weekends.
In "The Tales of Ise"
The phrase "he no longer lives here"
indicates he no longer goes there anymore
Oh, I'm sorry.
No, not all.
What's important is
who lives in your heart, isn't that right?
In the heart
If possible
I would recommend that you marry someone who will allow your family to live with you.
That's right
I'm sorry.
so miserable.
I knew it
In some respects, I was too much in a hurry.
I just couldn't let my dear cats go.
It's getting colder, please use that.
Thank you.
I just wanted someone to stop me, didn't I?
I'm really glad.
Sawada-san's back seems to be okay.
Yes, it is
Yes, it is
Two days a week,
I take Nijiro to the other house.
It isn't normal.
We broke up, and he lives in the same apartment with her.
She could do everything better than me.
Work, housework
She got fed up and left me.
She said, "I don't want a husband who's all talk and no action."
"So now now it's your turn to raise him." she said.
Four years ago.
As a single father?
It's just that
for Nijiro's sake,
he should be in the same apartment with her. I wonder
So that's why.
What Nijiro is thinking or feeling,
I really don't know.
Like what he feels about living with me
And living in the same apartment
Some people might think it's strange.
I don't know anything about marriage or parenting.
I have no idea at all.
Earlier when Nijiro said he didn't like soba.
- I'm sorry, he was being selfish.
- No.
I really thought it was nice of him to say, "I hate it."
He can honestly say what he likes and dislikes.
"Thank you." "Thanks for the food."
Laughing naturally.
He seemed like a happy boy.
In that case, it's much better.
Here you go.
To be honest
It's getting harder every day.
Nijiro takes up all my time and energy.
Nijiro is doing well, isn't he?
It's just that sometimes
I have these moments when my mind floats away.
It's like I'm being robbed.
Like something's being taken away?
It feels like that.
I thought that as long as Nijiro was happy, it would be fine.
But in the end
It was really about me.
I couldn't give up on myself.
You're a good father,
In this house, my father said the same thing.
As long as I'm happy, that's all that matters.
Seeing you with Nijiro today made me think.
"That's so nice"
"He's such a good father."
If you have any problems you can tell me anytime.
Oh and Nijiro-kun is welcome here anytime.
Thank you.
And also, Hayate is here.
With the two of you, I'll have peace of mind.
- Bye.
- Bye.
Bye bye.
You were good at making onigiri.
- Did you have fun?
- Yup.
What? Has your motherly instinct awakened?
- What? What are you talking about?
- You were looking at them like that just now.
- We're supposed to see them off, right?
- Did you forget something?
Nijiro, what's the one thing that would make you happy if it was taken away from you?
- A riddle?
- Yes.
Something that would make me happy if taken away
- I don't know.
- Your heart!
- What's that?
- Ha-ha-ha
- Oh, is that?
- Hm?
- Love Robber.
- Love ro?
- What's that?
- Love Thief.
- Love Thief!
- Where did you learn that kind of thing?
Heh heh heh
