He can't be a guy that's afraid of tears

Postby Aikuzo » Sun Oct 19, 2008 4:44 pm

Check this out guys

Guy: Patsy Cline's her sad music huh. Now. This is a very happy music. Keep it but you know what? Even if he does cheer her up, he can't be a guy that's afraid of tears (I just don't get the point behind this... could someone explain me pls)

PLUS at the very moment after the guy says this, they show a scene where the guy crying while watching the concert and holding his dates hand (it seems there's a joke on this but, I just dont get it^^)

Thanks in advance.

"Afraid of tears" means "afraid to cry."

The joke is that when we see Lenny crying, we know he's not afraid of tears. So he might be "The Perfect Man."
