Sasha (Ali Wong) and Marcus (Randall Park) are childhood next-door neighbors and best friends in San Francisco. Sasha often goes to Marcus’s house for dinners because her parents aren’t home often. Marcus’s mother teaches Sasha a lot about cooking. When they are teenagers, Marcus’ mom dies and the two become extra close, and eventually have sex in the back of Marcus’s car. Immediately afterward, Marcus tells Sasha he isn’t going to college, and when she questions it, he lashes out at her, clearly upset about his mother – and tells Sasha it was HIS mom who died and not hers. Sasha leaves, angry and hurt, and the two stop speaking.
