  • "Strangers, again" - Wong Fu Productions

  • We're just wasting time.

  • And now you think I am stupid.

  • You know I don't think that, Marisa.

  • You don't say it, but I know you're thinking it.

  • Well of course I'm thinking it right now. This whole thing is stupid!

  • See?

  • See what? It is. Who cares about I wanna leave early.

  • Even you barely know and you're getting mad at me?

  • Yeah, coz' you're thinking I'm annoying you.

  • Oh my God. This isn't about us.

  • This is about your co-worker's lamb potluck that you feel you're obligated to go to, because she has no friends.

  • If we go, that counts. We don't have to stay the whole 4 hours.

  • But it is about us.

  • It's about you not understand what's important to me.

  • Eating home-made potato salad and playing the Scrabble tournament is important to you?

  • -This is stupid. -That was I'd just said.

  • YOU're ...stupid.

  • You know I'm willing to let that one go.

  • Can you just tell me if we can leave or not, please?

  • Josh, you tell me.

  • What!

  • Look, I am sorry I brought it up. Could you just decide, and I'll do whatever.

  • No, Josh. Not this time.

  • I'm not gonna tell you what to do, because you'll just gonna use it against me on later things.

  • "I always do what you say."

  • No more.

  • Hey! This one wasn't my fault! There's no reason for this!

  • You're right. There is no reason for this.

  • It wasn't always like this.

  • I can't really remember when it wasn't, but...

  • I know for sure we weren't always like this.

  • She used to be...

  • My unicorn..

  • You know? Unbelievable...

  • Crazy special... The girl I thought could never exist...

  • But...as time went on...from one stage of our relationship to the next...

  • The path that started off so innocent and fun...has taken us to... THAT

  • But, like most, we started off as strangers.

  • At Stage 1: Meeting.

  • Thanks to a shoelace actually.

  • Excuse me!

  • Excuse me, your shoelaces are untied.

  • Oh..Ohh! Thanks!

  • No prob! Would want you to...

  • Whoo!

  • I couldn't have planned it better even if I'd tried.

  • But thank goodness the city hadn't fixed their park trails in 5 years.

  • I didn't tell her that... it was my first time running in about 9 months.

  • And somehow, we ended up going for almost 5 miles that day.

  • It's so pathetic to see how guys would do just about anything for the right girl.

  • But it payed off... Because I got her number.

  • We really hit it off that day.

  • I think so at least. I blacked out for a few minutes.

  • But when I woke up I remembered feeling like I had made a pretty good impression.

  • From that point on, we entered Stage 2: The Chase.

  • Some say it's the best part.

  • All I wanted was to know more about her.

  • All I wanted to do was hang out with her.

  • Ready?

  • UGH...

  • The only person I wanted to talk to...was her

  • She was the number one priority.

  • What the hell man!

  • And every time I saw her...

  • Butterflies....

  • She was everything that I thought could be perfect in a girl.

  • As soon as it felt right....

  • Would you be my girlfriend?

  • Yeah.

  • With this simple word. We began our relationship.

  • Taking us into Stage 3: The Honeymoon.

  • Everyone calls it this, and for good reason.

  • It was the time when we could finally, fully express our affection to each other

  • And do all the things we wanted to do as a couple.

  • It was a dream come true.

  • The girl I wanted to be with so so badly , was finally mine.

  • But eventually, the fire cooled and both of us simmered down back to normalcy

  • By the end of it all, we had a bajillion pictures with each other.

  • Knew every detail of our daily lives.

  • And like any normal healthy couple. We entered Stage 4: Comfortable.

  • What do you want to do tonight?

  • I don't know...whatever...

  • Now, being comfortable isn't necessarily bad.

  • It's when we can truly be ourselves.

  • But it depends on what you do with that comfort.

  • Some use it positively, continuing to work at their relationship and grow together.

  • But...others allow it to create distance.

  • And for Marissa and I...

  • It made us take each other for granted.

  • Hey! What are you doing it's Tuesday. Why aren't you dressed?

  • Oh yeah I totally forgot. Can we skip it? I don't...I don't feel like going.

  • This whole thing was your idea.

  • I..I know. I just kinda have other things to do..Um, Next week yeah?

  • Alright.

  • You're not gonna get that?

  • I'll call her back after this level.

  • Hey watch out!

  • Whether its taking each other for granted

  • Or people changing over time.

  • Bottom line is, someone stops trying.

  • The feelings aren't as strong as before.

  • This could happen over a few months, or a few years.

  • For us...it was about one and a half years when we hit Stage 5: Tolerance.

  • When Marissa and I got to this stage, I couldn't believe it.

  • And I was pretty disappointed.

  • Somehow, the girl I was so crazy about a year ago had turned into someone who just wasn't that special anymore.

  • It happened so gradually that I didn't even see it coming,but...

  • There we were...just tolerating each other.

  • Oh gosh, don't even ask about my day.

  • I won't.

  • Some of my co-workers are trying to get me to quit!

  • Where do you want to eat tonight?

  • Wherever you wanna go.

  • Can you just decide? I asked YOU.

  • And I'm being flexible. YOU pick.

  • Aw geez. You're like a 5-year old. Someone always has to tell you what to do!

  • Normally I'd let that go...

  • But I'm having a bad day too so, What did you just say?!

  • Arguing is one thing, but feeling dissatisfied and unhappy with your relationship is another.

  • We tried various times to try to make changes, to fix things.

  • But like so many couples out there...

  • It wasn't enough.

  • We became one of those relationships where it wasn't BAD, but it wasn't great.

  • And let me tell you.

  • That's never a good way to describe a relationship.

  • Well...I guess I'm gonna sleep now.

  • Ok.

  • Good night.

  • Good night.

  • It wasn't long before we were in Stage 6: Downhill.

  • There's not much time left once you're here.

  • The effort to try to make things work just isn't worth it anymore.

  • Problems continue. Arguments don't get solved.

  • I don't even really remember what we argued about.

  • I can't talk to you right now you're-

  • Why won't you just-

  • I cant believe that-

  • Well how could you-

  • What DID we argue about?

  • Marissa and I, sad to say...

  • ..are nearing the end of this stage.

  • What's next is what happens to everyone at some point.

  • The end of the line.

  • The worst stage ever.

  • Breaking up.

  • I don't know when it will happen or how..

  • But I hope we can leave it on good mutual terms.

  • If that's ever truly possible.

  • I think it's for the best.

  • Fine.

  • And this is when the two of us will start a new path.

  • One that leads right back to where we started.

  • Strangers.

  • The change will be so drastic and so blunt..

  • That we'll probably want to get back together right away...

  • Just to restore what's normal.

  • Hello?

  • Hey, Marissa.

  • I miss you.

  • Are you drunk?

  • But this doesn't always happen.

  • And the distance will grow.

  • Eventually the two of us will move on or find someone new.

  • Oh my god...

  • Donald...Donald..Don..Donald! Come..Don..

  • Who is that? Who is she with? Tell me who that is?

  • Sorry man.

  • And even when we both get over the past, and try to remain friends.

  • Things will never be the same.

  • Josh?

  • Hey! It is you!

  • Whoa! Marissa!

  • Hi! Nice to see you!

  • Yeah you too. You.. still run around here?

  • Well when I visit home, yeah.

  • Visit?

  • Yeah I moved up to San Francisco a couple months ago, but I'm just here to show my boyfriend the park.

  • Oh. cool...

  • Oh he's right here! Josh this is Alex. Alex, Josh.

  • Hi.

  • Nice to meet you man.

  • Well uh...we should catch up sometime. I'll talk to you later 'kay?

  • Sure.

  • Bye!

  • Our lives will continue on in different directions toward the inevitable end...

  • Becoming strangers again.

  • And everything we shared will just become fragmented memories.

  • From so long ago, I'll question if it even really happened.

  • And all that'll be left.....is this.

  • A box of random stuff from a faded period of time when...

  • This stranger... was the most important person in my life.

  • What a shame.

  • This is to remind you of how hard you FELL for me when we first met.

  • Josh, I'm so glad we have each other in our lives.

  • I know that, no matter what, we'll always make it through and..

  • We'll always have a tomorrow together.

  • Happy Anniversary.

  • Holy Crap!

  • What the hell are you doing?

  • Sorry..sorry..I..

  • I mean..I mean I'M sorry, Marissa.

  • It's just..it's just a potluck. I don't know why I was being so difficult.

  • It's...It's whatever.

  • No no! It's not "whatever". It's important to us.

  • Not..Not I mean the potluck just...

  • This..this is important to us. To-To ME.

  • Let's not do THAT anymore.

  • I'm sorry. Please.

  • Okay.

  • Yeah? We're okay?

  • I- I'm sorry. I'm being- I'm dumb.I'm so sorry. We're gonna be okay yeah?

  • It's alright babe.

  • [5 months earlier] [Somewhere near the end of Stage 4]

  • Do you realize there's only two options for our future together?

  • It's either we break up or we get married.

  • Never really thought of that.

  • Think we'll get married?

  • Geez, that's a loaded question.

  • Why? You wanna get married to me?

  • I don't know right now.

  • Me neither.

  • Do you wanna break up with me?

  • Of course not.

  • Well, its gonna be one or the other.

  • What do you think will happen if we don't end up together?

  • We gonna hate each other?

  • Think we'll keep in touch?

  • I think...that if life separates us and we end up in totally different places...

  • We'll always remember when our paths aligned for this period of time...

  • And I'll be thankful for that.

  • And hope that wherever you are, you'll be thankful too.

  • And I think that's the best we can reach for.
