A Relationship in Five Minutes

It was probably the cap on the toothpaste that did it. Matthew Flynn and Autumn Stein improvise a video that distils an entire relationship into 5 minutes.

About 3 minutes too long.

Well, that was depressing. Perhaps the young Japanese people being discussed upthread have been watching this video. That would explain their lack of interest is sex and relationships.

An entire relationship in 5 minutes? Like the 33 years my wife and I have had together? No?

This is pretty good. It's not great improv but it's above average and I like the presentation. I'd love to see this as a series.

Dude led every 'scene' though. Needs to shut up and listen more. /improvnerd

His relationships usually don't end that quickly.

There is enough recognizable truth in this piece to where I thought it was pretty clever. My freshman year of college I was in one of these "constantly break up and get back together" relationships. I'm not sure what was more embarrassing: having to sheepishly admit to my friends that we had gotten back together after having just made a grand pronouncement to anyone who would listen that we had broken up for good or never knowing what our anniversary was since there were at least 5-10 different "start" dates.

And here's the lesbian version. Warning: hemp socks, cute nicknames and inanimate object viking funeral.
