Ben X Jim (2020-…): Season 1, Episode 5 - Jealous Moments - full transcript

The previous night was a very awkward moment, and it became obvious as there's friction between Jim and Ben days after. They want to reconnect and talk, but it seems like no one has the courage to do so. Jim feels Ben is slowly moving away from him, and an unexpected gesture from Olan makes Jim realize that Ben could slip out of his hand any moment, something that he's not ready for.

[Ben] The worst thing about loving someone

is that the longer you are unable
to destroy what you feel,

the longer the pain remains.

[male newsreader] Due to rising
coronavirus disease cases in the country,

the president has approved the extension

of the Enhanced Community Quarantine
in Luzon until April 30th, 2020.

This is in line with the recommendation
of the Inter-agency Task Force

for the management
of emerging infectious diseases.

Cabinet Secretary and IATF spokesperson
Karlo Nograles

mentioned that the guidelines of IATF
will still follow through.

Medical front-liners and services
are still exempted.

[Flo] Hey,
you're ruining something important.

I know that.

That's why I tried to salvage it.

Even just the friendship.

Friendship? What are you talking about?



You are destroying the box!

Don't you need that
when you sell that thing?

Shit!

- [Flo] Real shit! What's up with you?
- [groans]

[metal clanks]

[Yana gasps] Babe! Be careful!

You almost hurt me.

Sorry, I don't want
to hurt anyone, it's just...

What's that, babe?

Huh?

Sorry!

Babe, you brought extra clothes, right?

Can you just change, please?

Yeah, I do have extra clothes.

All right, I'll get changed.
I'll be upstairs if you need me.

- Sorry, babe.
- It's okay.

- [Ben groans]
- What's up with you?

[Yana] Babe, they're here.

Hi, guys!

- [Flo] Hi, Yana!
- [Yana] Hi, Ben!

- Hi!
- What are you guys doing?

I'm helping Ben
with the stuff he needs to sell.

Ah! Babe, come over here!

[sighs]

What's your problem?

[Yana] Quick!

- [Flo] Hi, Jim!
- Hi!

Ben, say hi to Jim.

All right, guys, I'll go upstairs.

Jim ripped my dress.

- [Flo] All right.
- He's been zoning out since this morning.

Actually, my friend here's been the same.

- Really?
- Yes!

- All right, I'll go ahead.
- Bye, Yana.

Sorry, babe.

It's okay.

Anyway, I'll bring these inside.

Help me set up later for my vlog, okay?

Fix that box.

Ben...

Ben!

Dad arranged a flight for me.

I was meant to be leaving
when the ECQ was lifted.

But it was extended.

Dad really wants me
to go back to Davao.

And I have unfinished business at my shop.

Okay, safe travels.

[bittersweet music playing]

[crickets chirping]

[Yana] How is this done?
Babe, do you know how this is done?

Let's try this!

Come on!

- [Jim speaks indistinctly]
- This will be fun.

Just step, one, two. One, two.

[Yana] Come on!

[bittersweet music continues]

Okay. How do I do this? Like this?

- Yes!
- There.

- [Yana] And then this.
- Okay.

[Yana laughing]

[Yana] There! Yes, nice!

- Okay, okay.
- Now turn around.

Done. Wait, let's see how it looks.

- [Jim] I didn't mess it up.
- Really? Let's see.

Wow. You're a dancer.

And you've still got the moves.

The music is good. It's so catchy.

[bittersweet music continues]

I think I wanna do this again.

I want to do this again.

I feel like we'll get it better
on the second take.

[music fades]

[boxes tumbling]

[grunts softly]

[Jim yelps]

What hap...?

[distant motorcycle revving]

[motorcycle revs]

[Olan] Hi, Sir Ben!

- Is this everything?
- [Ben] Yes.

There.

Careful.

They fell just before.

There. You want some water?

Yes, please.

Wait...

[Ben laughs]

Here.

You're so sweet today.

I knew it. You've finally fallen for me.

[Ben] Hey, please be careful.

Did you do that on purpose?

Sorry, was it obvious?

The ball bounced hard from the ring.

Hey, you're soaked.

- I'll get a shirt for you.
- Okay.

Hey...

You're staring at my hot and sexy body.

May I have the shirt now?

[laughs] Here.

Hey, can you pass my ball back?

[mutters]
It might bounce back there again.

Here.

What a lousy pass.

I'm gonna fight back.

No, ignore him.
Get on with your deliveries.

- My shirt is wet now.
- That's okay. Go on.

[Olan continues indistinctly]

Hey, Flo.
Drop by later, let's have a drink.

Is this real?

The struggling student seller
who's preoccupied with business

is asking me to have a drink?

Wait, are you brokenhearted?

No!

Why? The only ones allowed to drink
are the brokenhearted?

In your case, yes.
You only drink when you're brokenhearted.

Wait, is this about Jim?

Last week that I was there,
you were awkward.

- No.
- What do you mean "no"?

I know you too well.

You're jealous of Yana, aren't you?

You hoped for a chance,
and there was none.

Miss Girlfriend suddenly arrived.

Stop eating those fortune cakes.

See! You're caught.

All right, then.

I'll buy the drinks.

Thank you.

Are we killing each other?
Why did you ask me to buy tons of liquor?

And what is this? Why does it look
like we're setting up a party?

I thought this was just a heart-to-heart
wine night. And who is this?

That's my friend, Olan.
And what are you saying?

Aren't we always like this
when we drink here?

But this is too much.

Spill it.

[sighs] All right. okay.

Yana invited me to have dinner
at their house.

But I don't want to play third wheel
to the two of them.

So, I told her I had my own event
here in the house.

There you go.

So, it's a contest.

You don't want to go to Yana's event

because you know it would be awkward,
and you're the thorn between them.

Mm. And because
you don't want to go there,

you don't want to look pathetic here,
either.

So, you organized your own event.

I like the spirit, very competitive.

[Yana] Hey, Benny.

What's your final answer?
Is it really a no?

Because I told my mom
I'd have a new friend come over.

[Ben] Sorry, next time.

- Okay.
- [Jim] Babe, let's go!

Babe, Ben really can't make it.

They have this mini party going on here.

That's okay. Let them be.

For sure, it will be more fun
that dinner at your house.

Okay. Bye, Ben! Bye, guys!

- [Flo] Bye!
- [Ben] Bye!

[laughing]

Olan, you go first.

Two truths, one lie.

Yes, you go first.

Okay, all right.

- It's hard to think, guys.
- That's true!

Go on, you first!

Fine.

Eh... First, when it comes to love,

I am loyal and honest.

JIM: ARE YOU STILL DRINKING?

Second, I have never had a fling
or short-term relationship.

JIM: WHO ELSE IS THERE?

And third,

- I am still a virgin.
- [Ben laughs]

[Flo laughs]

It seems all of it is lies.

Hey, what do you think of me?
Is that how bad you perceive me?

It's not like that.
But all of them were lies.

Hey, Flo,
do you believe what he's saying?

What did he say?

What do you mean, "What did he say?"

- What are you doing? You seem busy.
- No.

It's because
the love of your life messaged me.

They want to join us here.

Wait, what?

Love of his life?

- You have a boyfriend?
- No.

Flo's just kidding.

It's what I call Jim.

Jim was Ben's first love.

- Actually, even now.
- Hey.

- [teasingly] Hey!
- [Ben laughs]

[Flo laughs]

You know what, just stop bothering them.
Okay?

That's right. Let's not bother them.
Jim might punch me if he comes here.

[Flo] Why would he punch you?

Because he is very jealous of me.

And he'll see that
I am making a move on Ben.

[laughs awkwardly]

Wait, wait.

Please elaborate.

Not now.
Just tell us your two truths and one lie.

Okay. Um...

- [Yana] Hi, guys!
- [Flo] Hi!

Can we join you?

Jim kept asking me if we could come here
because he was getting bored.

But we brought food and drinks.

[Flo] That's cool!

I thought Jim said
where you were going would be fun.

[all laugh]

[Flo] Wow! Couple shirts?

It's not like that.
More like "best friend" shirts.

- Ah, wait. I'll change.
- Why?

Don't bother.
There's no meaning to it at all.

Unless you're reading meaning into it.

[Olan] Guys, stop that already.
Let's just drink, okay?

- Let's just enjoy the night.
- [Flo] Right, yes.

[Olan] Let's just drink it out.

[Yana] Oh, so what are you guys playing?

Two truths, one lie. You know it?

I know that game. Okay, my turn.

So, my truths are...

First truth, I have a tattoo.

What else?

Second truth...

Ben, I love egg whites. Can I have them?

They're my favorite.

Can I have this?

- I have four pet...
- [utensils clatter loudly]

Babe, don't be clumsy.
The fork fell on the ground.

Sorry.

Bro, why are you still here?
It's already late. There's a curfew.

Bro, I have a quarantine pass.

And if it gets too late, I can sleep over.

Right, Ben?

Why is he the only one you're asking?

- I'm still here.
- [Olan] Yeah, right.

I know there's a curfew.
But let's not think about it.

Let's just enjoy the night.

Let's just relax
and enjoy the night, right?

- Right?
- Yes!

[Flo] Whoo!

Guys, cheers.

There. Yes!

[Flo] Yes!

[Flo] Okay, now that Yana is done,

it's your turn now, Jim.

Two truths, one lie.

Let's stop now
and play a different game.

Wait, it's my turn.

Why? Don't you want me to give my answers?

Okay.

Okay, um...

One.

The person that I love most...

is right here, right now.

Two...

I love that person so much.

That person doesn't know
how deeply I love them.

I can't show it that much.

Three,

it's my underwear's second day.

[laughter]

[Yana] That's cute, babe.

It seems like all of those are true.

Babe, I know that you love me so much,
and you never fail to let me feel it.

[Flo] Hey, hey, hey! Get a room, please.

Don't make me envious here.

Why is it that I feel like
a fifth wheel here?

You both are couples.

Wait, they're together?

Um...

You know what, that's enough.

Turn the videoke on, Flo.
Set up the laptop and the portable mic.

Wait, you haven't had your turn yet.
All of us had our turns except you.

That's unfair on us. It's your turn.

[Ben] Okay, fine.

[sighs]

Okay, one.

I'm a good online seller.

Two, I'm not good at baking.

Three, I skipped lunch this afternoon.

There.

Can I have one, too?

That's it? That's boring!

[laughs]

[Yana] Correct. Those are so mundane.

I agree. Share something deeper.

You want me to share for you?

Since out of everyone here,

I'm the one closest to you.

And... we have been together for so long.

- As friends.
- No need. Let me do it, okay?

[sighs]

Okay.

First.

I am hoping that the day will come
when my first love loves me back.

I still believe it will.

Wait, who's your first love?

Save the follow-up questions for later.

Second,

though I get hurt a thousand times over,

I will never get tired
of waiting for true love.

[gentle music playing]

And third,

I know in myself that in six months,

I will prove myself to my parents.

That's really heavy.

That's why I said before, guys,
let's just sing videoke.

Yes, sure, let's go!

Let Jim sing first.

I don't think you guys know
how good a singer he is.

I know that!
That was his talent when we were younger.

Really?

Babe, I don't want to.
You know that I only sing for you.

Babe, please, do it.
Just one song, please.

- My songs are only for you.
- Please!

[Flo]
Okay, so, Jim, what are you gonna sing?

No, really. I don't want to. Thank you.

Babe, sing a song
that's close to your heart.

You told us you couldn't show your love
how much you loved her.

Well, now's your chance.

Sing one song, I'll listen.

If you don't want to, let me.

- No, okay. I'll do it.
- Okay, you.

- [Yana squeals]
- [Flo claps]

Babe, you really sing so well.

I told you, guys, he's a good singer.

No, that well.

Guys...

I would like to tell you something.

Now that you are all here.

All of the people close to him are here.

Perhaps you only see me
as someone who is never serious.

Who's always laughing around.

I'm not like you,

rich and affluent.

But there's one thing about myself
that I am proud of.

When I love someone,

I will fight for it.

Guys, I would like to ask
for your blessings...

Most of all from you, Ben.

I would like to court you.

[romantic music playing]

I will court you until you say yes.

I will take care of you and protect you.

I will do everything for you.

Because, Ben,

I really, really like you.

[Yana] Oh my God! That's so sweet!

So much love in this night.
Definitely a night to remember, guys!

[sighs]

[chair scrapes loudly]

Sorry. I think I'm going to throw up.

Sorry.

And the answer is yes, Olan!

You definitely have our approval
as Ben's closest friends.

You know, at first, we didn't get along.

But I see that you're a really good guy.

And I think any man
would be lucky to have you.

Congratulations, you guys!

I'm so happy for you.

[loud thud]

Babe?

[light footsteps nearing]

Babe...

Are you okay?

Um...

Yeah. I'm okay.

I'm just dizzy. I hit my head on the door.

Stop drinking already.

- Here, let me carry you.
- No, I'm okay.

Go back to them.

It's fine, go back.

[bittersweet music playing]

[sighs]

[sobbing]

[music slowly fades]

Hey! Where are you going?

Oh my God. You startled me.

What are you doing here?

Um...

Well, I'm heading home.

Jim's in a bad mood.

Well, we fought actually.

Um... and I don't wanna
stay here for the night.

How about you?

Well...

Ben doesn't want me to stay here.

He says my family might look for me.

But I think

he's just feeling awkward
about what I did tonight.

Aw...

Still, I'm happy for you both.

Thank you.

Yet, I'm here.

An outsider.

[laughs]

Both of us are.

Outsider.

"Outsiders." With "S."

Because there's two of us.

So, what now?

Want me to take you home?

Are you crazy?

Back riding isn't allowed.

We're front-liners.

When we get caught,
you can pay the 5,000-peso fine.

[scoffs] You're crazy.

I don't want to.
You might get me into an accident.

I'll be careful this time.

Promise.

I will avoid checkpoints,
and I'll bring you home safe.

Well?

Let's go. It's already late.

Promise?

Promise.

Okay.

[motorcycle revs]

You're here.

Ben, I destroyed the restroom door.

I'll just fix it tomorrow.

Ben...

It was wrong.

My reaction, after you told me...

that you loved me.

I am not like Olan.

He's brave.

Unlike me.

I... I can't even tell you...

that I love you, too.

[delicate music playing]

Not just as a friend.

[sniffling]

I love you, Ben.

And even if I'm unsure,

I will take the risk.

This is all new to me.

Don't ever hurt me.

Don't look at others.

You're mine.

[delicate music continues]

Promise.
