Aside from its unexpected plot twists, one thing I love abt the series is Lola Nidora’s pagiging epal. Her lectures are powerful and true since most youths today fall into dilemmas cos they rush the fuckin things up. I’ve watched the episode earlier and took her words into heart.

“…the novelty of a female fly became the basis for the 1924 Al Christie comedy Hold Your Breath, starring Dorothy Devore. Devore’s gender was a means to promote and differentiate the film, as is made clear by the ad copy that billed her as "The Girl Who Outstunts Lloyd” and “A Harold Lloyd in Skirts.” Prerelease hype in the Los Angeles Times stated that ‘theater audiences have grown used to seeing a male star do daredevil stunts,’ but that Harold Lloyd now had a rival in 'this petite young actress, who climbs about on tall buildings, with all the courage, ease, and abandon of the bespectacled comedian.’“
