Mason

Devan:  Mason’s got a great place, doesn’t he?

Amanda:  Yeah, it’s really cool and there’s this amazing view from the balcony.

Devan:  Yeah, have you seen his bedroom yet?

Amanda:  What?

Devan:  Oh, nothing.

Amanda:  What did you say?

Devan:  Did you notice his new haircut…

Amanda:  Did you say bedroom? Or did you say bathroom? Because I hope you said bathroom. Because there’s no reason for you to have been in his bedroom.

Devan:  Right. No, of course. Of course I’ve never been in his bedroom.

Amanda:  OK. Because his sheets are really soft…

Devan:  What?

Amanda:  His sheets are really soft.

Devan:  Huh? Sheets? His sheets? Oh, you’ve been in his bed.

Amanda:  No. Have you seen his haircut?

Devan:  Yeah it looks…

Mason:  Hey guys.

Devan:  Hey!

Mason:  You two, uh, top her off.

Amanda:  Hey, Mason, what’s going on?

Mason:  Oh not much.

Amanda:  What?

Mason:  Oh, nothing.

Amanda:  I like your hair!

Devan:  I do too! I like your hair too.

Amanda:  I like your face.

Discussion

Devan comments that she likes Mason’s apartment, and Amanda says there’s a nice view from the balcony. Then Devan asks if Amanda has been in Mason’s bedroom. Amanda assumes that since Devan is asking, she’s been in Mason’s bedroom and she gets upset. But it turns out that Devan is bluffing. She hasn’t been in Mason’s bedroom.

Amanda can play that game too. She says that Mason’s sheets are soft, even though she later admits that she’s never been in his bed!

Then Mason walks in and gets a beer. Amanda and Devan talk over each other in order to compliment him. It seems like it might make him a little nervous. He misuses the phrase “top her off,” which is something you say when pouring a drink, not grabbing a bottle. As he leaves, Devan sighs, and she and Amanda look at one another and realize they both like the same guy.

Which one do you think will finally get Mason? Amanda or Devan? Have you ever had a crush on the same person as one of your friends?

We usually say loving each other, that means love is between two people not three.

Be in a love triangle maybe not romatic but troublesome. Usually the situation apperas in TV or movie. But nowadays it happens often.
