When people first fall in love, all they want to do is be together. Sometimes it takes their friends a while to get used to not hanging out all the time. It can be especially hard for a group of friends to adjust when two people from the group start dating each other.

Devan and Jason just started dating, but Mason doesn’t seem to understand they might want to spend time alone together. Watch as he and his new friends Dale and Ella invade Jason and Devan’s privacy. It’s a little annoying, but in the end, just a silly little problem. Devan and Jason are just happy that they are finally healthy and finally together.

Mason:  Alright guys, right this way, right this way, come on in.

Ella:  Hello!

Mason:  These are my new friends, right? I just bumped into ‘em on the street. They just popped up out of nowhere, I’m like, “You gotta meet my two kids here.” So uh…

Ella:  We’re so excited.

Mason:  Oh, dude, is there pizza?

Jason:  Yeah…

Mason:  Hold on. Let me, um…Could I just get in, I wanna…

Jason:  Well, awesome. Thanks for stopping by, guys. It was great to meet your friends and, uh…

Mason:  Do you have anything to drink?

Dale:  Yeah.

Ella:  Definitely.

Dale:  Yeah, we’ll be there.

Mason:  Meet me at the bar downstairs. Yeah?

Mason:  OK. OK, that will be good.

Dale:  Nice meeting you guys!

Mason:  Thanks for the pizza. It was good to see you.

Jason:  Yeah, you too. It’s alright. I think we dealt with that fairly well.

Devan:  They ate all our pizza!

Jason:  We were almost done. It’s OK. We had enough. We don’t need that much pizza.

Beren:  Hey guys.

Jason:  Hey. How’s it going?

Beren:  I heard you have some pizza?

Jason:  Actually, we’re fresh out.

Devan:  Have you been back there this whole time?

Beren:  Yes.

Discussion

Mason brings in his new friends and they take Devan and Jason’s pizza! Jason tries to get them to scram, but they don’t get it for a while. Plus, did you notice Ella grab Jason and Devan’s arms? What was that about?

Once everyone leaves, Devan is upset. But Jason still thinks they can have a fun night. They were almost done with the pizza anyway, and they got rid of everyone pretty fast.

Then it turns out that Beren was behind the couch the whole time. What’s she doing back there? Maybe it has to do with the fact that she’s actually Beren’s evil twin.

Is it hard for you to get alone time with your special someone? Or do you take too much couple time and make your friends lonely?

This was funny.. all friends are like…:)


I remember an early days of our marriage, In India, most of the families are joint families. All live together. Nowadays, people started moving to other places for new opportunities and outcome of that is Nuclear family started. So, when we wanted to spend some time together, there were always someone to distrub us. Now, we are nuclear family but still miss those days… because when you get some time out of such distrubances, you try to make the full use that and that memories are unforgettable..:)

IT IS SO EMBARASSING SITUATION, WHEN YOU WANT TO BE ALONE WITH SOMEBODY, AND FRIENDS COME OVER, BUT THEY KNOW HOW TO DEAL THEM, SO THAT´S WHY IT IS IMPORTANT TO GET REAL FRIENDS.

yap.. when I watch the video, I couldn't undnerstand why Ella grab Jason and Devan's arms. that is weird.who know the answer? I think that is too much for friends when they first time to meet each other. maybe just shake the hand. that will be enough. If Jason and Devan want to stay alone, I suggest they should find a better place or lock the door. maybe.
