- Ateli: Oh, Capuchy! Good morning. Glad you're just in time to be there.
- Capuchy: Yeah, just like I never forget. Here're the flowers as your dating gift.
- Ateli: (takes a now broken flowers from Capuchy) Thank you. These look.... uh... quite of.....
- Capuchy: (sighs in dismay) Yeah, I know what're about say. Awful, after this clumsy rush I been through, made me monkeying around if you know what I mean. Sorry about that, it seems that so much for a perfect gift you asked me to give it to you.
- Ateli: (smiles as she throws destroyed flowers to the waste basket) Oh, Capuchy. Flowers don't mean anything as my gift. It's only you, (flirting Capuchy) as my perfect gift.
- Capuchy: You do think so?
- Ateli: I always know so, love. (kisses him on a cheek)
- Capuchy: (coy) Gee, that's sweet of you.
