A boy is trying to win the heart of a girl he had invited to dinner. He is clumsy and awkward as boys in love often are. When the disappointed girl leaves him, an elderly gentleman swamps him with remarks. The gentleman looks like he has good intentions but he is also annoying: he gives advice and expresses criticism, he boasts about his own experience, shows off his harsh cynicism and so on. It turns out, though, that this isn’t a meddling waiter, but a professor of theatre acting. Boy didn’t fail at his first date, he failed in an improvisation exercise; however, his love for Girl is real and they have been a couple for some time. They are fellow students at a drama school.
