Mason:  Here you are, buddy.

Mason:  So, uh…so. Uh, I guess we got something to talk about.

Jason:  I guess so.

Mason:  Uh, yeah, so, I don’t know, man. Last time we talked we were talking about Amanda and I was all stoked for you.

Jason:  That’s true.

Mason:  And I was, man, I don’t want you to think that I wasn’t, but, uh, I was hanging out with Amanda kind of recently and something clicked. Something was different.

Jason:  Yeah. No, I can see that. I mean, I’m not mad or anything. It makes sense.

Mason:  You sure? I mean, I kinda feel like I violated the code or something like that.

Jason:  No, I mean, I know that you didn’t mean me any, like, harm or anything and it was just that…I mean, I can sort of see it, you know? Like you guys are really good friends and I guess it just sorta happened or whatever. I don’t think you ever would have told me to go for it if you hadn’t been…

Mason:  No, totally.

Jason:  ...if you didn’t mean that. So…

Mason:  Totally. Yeah. I’m glad it’s relatively OK. So let me know if there’s anything I can do.

Jason:  Alright. Yeah. No worries.

Mason brings a beer to Jason, who looks like a mess and is sitting at a table being bummed out. He stammers for a moment but eventually begins the conversation that they have to have.

Mason explains that shortly after he told Jason to go ahead and date Amanda, something changed in his mind. Jason says that he can see that Mason and Amanda have a special connection.

But Mason still feels as though he’s done something wrong. Jason assures him that he’s forgiven and that he knows that Mason wouldn’t lead him astray on purpose.

Do you think what Mason did was wrong? Would you be as understanding as Jason if you were in his position?

Janson is really a gentleman.Of course,It`s not Manson`s fault,and he should be fogiven.Even through Janson love amanda very much,it`s usual for Manson to date amanda together for they are good friends.I think it`s kind of manson to encourage Janson to date amanda.It`s common in our life like this relations between them.Happily,they still keep their good friendship.

Sometimes this thing happen in our realy life, but people often misunderstand each other.

I think Jason is very magnanimous.

If I were Jason, I would be mad at my friend first.

However , love is not like lining up in front of a box office.

It's not like "First come, first get love".

Just let it go and wait another destined love!

I think it is good for Jason,because love is a beautiful emotion in our heart,the others couldn't take it , too,we can't compel someone to receive it.Jason forgived  Mason and retain a friend.I want to say:"Jason is a complete gentleman in the end."
