Love By Numbers EP1


Why? Why doesn’t anyone love me? Why? I… Don’t come any closer. Okay. Frankie, look, we can talk about this. -Okay?
-No more talking! I just want to get married!
That’s all! What’s so difficult about that? What’s the point of going home
if there’s no one there. Frankie, we’ll find you someone. Okay? No! I don’t believe
in any of your lies anymore. You’ll be married on December 15! -Stop making fun of me!
-No, I’m not. I swear! You guys! You’ll be married on…
September 23rd. And you… July… No! -January…
-What? How is that even possible? -Stop lying to me.
-It doesn’t matter, Frankie! I don’t believe
any of your lies anymore. You’ll be married on December 15th.
I swear! -I’m going to jump!
-No! If I don’t find you someone
to marry you by then… I’ll marry you myself. Jane! Meeting. Now. Jane! Mrs Tang? So good to see you. -I hope you’ve had your lunch.
-I have. Thank you. What’s this? Performance ranking
of your matchmakers. Interesting. And… You must be Agnes. WeDo’s top matchmaker. With technology,
your numbers could be larger. I sent you the link on Ben Chong. He is brilliant. He’s also behind the wildly successful
Parking Aunty Lai Loh app. The one that predicts if a parking warden
is out checking on your coupons. Thanks to Ben, parking fines have gone down
by 37.56 per cent. You need him. But no one’s heard from him
in six months. Well, rumour has it that he is working
on a new love algorithm. And the rumours also say
that it’s still in beta. I mean, Mrs Tang,
we’re not sure if it even works. Naomi, the deal is this, I will only invest
if Ben Chong is on it. I mean, your numbers are dismal. I mean… What does this even mean? I want my money back! I want my money back! Frankie, we’re in the middle
of a very important meeting right now. I don’t care.
Three of my dates pulled out on me. She… She told them to stay single. Jane! Being single is awesome. No man to cheat on you and leave you. Pandas, armadillos, skunks. They know the perks of being alone. Skunks? Yes. Skunks! If you want me to invest,
she has to go. Mrs Tang, Jane was… is our best matchmaker. She just needs time to recover. Don’t forget we have that meeting
with Daniel and Shirley later. And once again,
excellent work this week everyone, especially… Jane. Our top matchmaker this week. You know, it’s unheard of
for a trainee to top the charts three weeks in a row. Keep it up, and you’ll be
a full-fledged matcher in no time. Thank you. Agnes, get some tips from Jane. So, what’s the deal? I believe in love. -Chester!
-Surprise!JaneMy heart is in painAnd you’re to blameSo take my nameAnd be my dame Jane, will you marry me? Yes! Chester! Chester Tan. Your fiancé? Yes. Miss, Chester Tan is wanted
for cheating women of anything of value. No. That can’t be true. We’ve been after him for a long time. My bank account. He… He took everything! What about me? Fire her now! Frankie, we’ll set you up
with a few new people. -No!
-She has to go! Please! I really need this job. Let me convince Ben Chong
to come here. Trust me. You have until the end of the day. But if she fails, not only is she gone,
it’s on you, Naomi. Okay. Oh, my god! Oh, my god! Don’t die on me. Don’t die on me! Oh, my god! Please don’t die on me. Please don’t die on me. Miss! Oh, miss! Are you okay? -Please don’t die on me.
-Are you okay? -My head.
-Are you okay? Are you okay? Are you okay? Ben, get me an ice pack. I have work to do, mother. I’m going to sue you. Please, miss, it was an accident. My son had been working
on the Internet. It’s an algorithm, mother.
An algorithm. He every day stays at home. I’m afraid that one day
he’ll become a… What is it called? A hikikomori. I’m not a hikikomori. A what? A hikikomori is defined as someone
who stays at home consecutively for six months
without going to school or work, and rarely ever speaks to anybody outside
their immediate family. I’ve only been home for five months
and three weeks, 174 days. You’re Ben Chong? Yes. I just tried to take away his laptop. But it slipped out of my hand.
It went out the window. Hi! My name is Jane. -I’m from WeDo…
-I’m not interested. My algorithm is still in beta. Hey, wait! Please just talk to them. I’ll drop the suit. Hey, my head saved your laptop. If my head wasn’t in there,
your laptop would’ve been broken to bits. You owe me. This is true. Based on the velocity
at which it was traveling, and thanks to the exact curvature
of your skull, the laptop bounced off your head
and landed on the ground. Do you understand? That means he’s coming with me. And then I’m coming straight home. Come! In mathematics and computer science, an algorithm is a set of instructions,
typically to perform a set of problems, or to solve a set of computations. You know, actually,
algorithms are unambiguous… Wait. Do you see that? Do you see numbers? Numbers? I think you have
traumatic brain injury. We need to send you to the hospital. Hey, Mr Rambling-Boring-Fact-
Algorithm-Statistic-Data crap! I don’t think I’m the one
with psychiatric issues. Wait a minute!
I think they are lottery numbers. Jane… Jane… The probability of striking the lottery
is 1 in 13,986,316. The probability is… Probability my butt ability! Come on. Let’s go. Probability my butt ability… Where have I heard that from before? Hey! I told you,
when I agreed to see your boss, I factored in a two-hour break
of my daily routine, and I intend to resume my schedule
at exactly 15:45. But your detour
has completely eaten into my… That is the smell
of a million dollars. And it’s not the smell
of a million dollars. That is a smell of chemically
broken-down cellulose and small amounts of lignin. -The compounds within that piece of…
-What? More numbers? Different ones. I used up all my money
on these numbers. Do you have money? I’m not going to delay
this meeting any further. I told you if you were listening,
I spent a two-hour break… Please! I’ll make it quick. We’ll split the money
when I strike it rich. You may think with twice the number
of lottery tickets… What? More numbers? Another six freaking digits… 300921… There’s no way I can bet
on all the numbers I see. Forget it. Let’s go. Wait. Wait! Six digits. These could signify
a number of things. I just want them
to be lottery numbers. You know, as a preliminary theory, these digits could signify a day-day,
month-month, year-year format, commonly associated with the date. The date I strike the lottery? You do have an unhealthy fixation
with striking the lottery. Right now, I also having an unhealthy
fixation with striking your mouth. Shut up! I’ve got a headache. Please let me win. Again? Thank you so much for introducing us. We are getting married on… Eighteenth of December, next year. Congratulations! That’s it. A useless date. My theory was correct. Is this the famous Ben Chong? -Hello. Goodbye.
-Hey! Where are you going? Home. I have to return
to my schedule for the day, but I would be interested in staying
for these “date” hallucinations caused by your TBI. There’s an emergency! -Why?
-Frankie! Why? Don’t come any closer! -Why?
-Frankie, please. We can talk about this. Okay? I just want to get married.
That’s all. What’s so difficult about that? You’ll be married on December 15. -Stop making fun of me!
-I’m not. I swear! You guys! You’ll be married on September 23rd! How is that even possible? It doesn’t matter, Frankie! You’ll be married on December 15.
I swear! If I can’t find someone
to marry you by then… I’ll marry you myself. Jane! Okay. Okay, Frankie. Can you come down now? All right. We’re going to help you.
Please come down. Please. -Yes, Frankie. Come down, please.
-Slowly. -Please.
-Frankie, come down. Okay. Okay, be careful. Okay. Okay. All right. Frankie, let’s go. Let’s go. Are you okay? I thought you are going to go home? I think I’ll stick around for this. Mother! Mother, I’m home. My dear Ben. I’m so proud of you
for leaving the house today. I’m sorry for doing this to you, Ben. But this is the only way. You know where to go.
You know what to do. Love, Mummy. Mummy? Mummy? Who can I text? Who can I text? -Ben?
-Jane? Why are you… Hey! What’s going on? Get out!
Go get a hotel room. Thanks for getting us kicked out. It’s not my fault. Mother kicked me out,
and I had nowhere else to go. Your mother is just as bad as mine. Mummy. Oh, Jane.
You’re back so early already. You were supposed to come home early. Oh, the big news. Yes, okay. What is the big news?
Oh! You got a promotion? Chester proposed. I’m getting married. No! You are not getting married. All men are scum! No offense. Chester is not like… that. All men are like that. They cannot be trusted. They will break your heart and leave. That’s what happened to you. But it’s not going to happen to me. I’m not like you. In fact, I’m nothing like you. I said no! If you don’t listen to me,
get out of my house. Fine! I’ll move out and stay with Chester.
And I’m never coming back. What was that? I… It’s nothing. What do you mean “it was nothing”? Oh, I hate being alone.
I don’t want to live alone. It’s scary. I don’t want to live alone. Tell me about it. What do you think you’re trying to do? Rob me? Take my money? I have nothing! Nothing! You messed with the wrong person! Anyway, we need to find a place
to crash for tonight. Mother expects me to live all alone
in my apartment. I don’t want to live
in my apartment by myself. Your apartment? Yes. Your mother is so cruel. Why? Just now, when I touched
your front doorknob, the whole door felt so flimsy.
It felt like it was going to collapse. And then, you see all these corners. So many and so dark, it makes it so easy
for people to come in and… scare you, or worse strangle you. Oh, you poor thing. Your mother is so cruel. Anyway, I’m going to go now. See you at work tomorrow. I hope. If nobody comes in here and… attacks you. -Bye.
-Wait! You can’t leave. Stay here with me. Yes!
Stay here with me. Okay. I’ll stay here with you. So, what made you decide
to start this anyway? I got the idea six months ago. My research partner, Joseph,
is getting married. -Okay!
-Okay! Thank you guys. Make sure I see you
at my wedding. Okay? -Okay.
-Yes! So much fun! Let’s do the math dance. Yes! Yes! Ready! -Plus!
-Plus! -Minus!
-Minus! -Equals!
-Equals! I’m dizzy! Hey, nerds! How do you know she’s not
taking advantage of you? -The probability of that…
-There has to be a way… to match fingerprints, match your toe lengths… It can’t be that hard
to find the right person to marry. And then I realized she was right. So I wanted to go ask her more
about her thoughts… -And then somebody attacked me.
-What do you think you were trying to do? Oh, no! Why? What kind of monster
would do such a thing, right? That’s not even the worst part. My computer was beyond repair and just my luck, I forgot to back up
a large chunk of data. So a lot of my work was lost. And I was too depressed to continue. And you’ve been too scared
to live alone, or go out anymore? And it’s all because of that attacker. I tell you, if I ever find out
who that monster is, I’m going to make sure they pay
for ruining my life and my work. Hi. My name is Jane. I’m from… You missed me? If my head wasn’t in there,
your laptop would’ve been broken… I need to continue my explanation
into my thing with the… the wrong line. Okay, cut! Cut! Okay. Don’t laugh! -Let’s go.
-Wait! Captions: Iyuno
