The Way She Moves
We whirl over to Moronica's dancing lessons. She asks Mango why he "loves dance so much." He swivels his hips and says that it's the "second best form of non-verbal communication on the planet." Moronica rhythmlessly stomps her feet. "What's the first?" she wonders. "You have to ask?" Mango leers. Moronica blushes. Mango tells her that she's getting better, and they get to talking about the upcoming Festival of Dance. According to Mango, it's a contest held during Cinco de Mayo, blah blah blah the winners go to the world championships in Puerto Rico. Mango wants Moronica to attend. She can't; she has "something else" that day: her ill-fated wedding to Pole-Up-the-Ass Matt. Soon, the lesson concludes; Moronica gathers her stuff and takes off. "Don't forget to breathe," she calls to him. After she leaves, Mango spins dramatically and with much salsa flava.
Mango's Night at the Club for Salsa Dancing and Engagement Breaking. Mango and Moronica dance! They dance and dance! Moronica? Still has no rhythm. Man-Woman jealously watches as Mango twirls Moronica around. The crowd applauds when Mambo and Moronica conclude their routine, and Mango announces that Moronica has only been studying dance for the past two weeks. Moronica blushes.
After the lesson, Moronica and Mango go out into the parking lot to stare into each other's eyes. She leans against a car and tells him that "everything is moving so fast, [her] head is spinning." Mango makes some weird analogy to kids and spinning and anti-gravity and flying and something. I think it's supposed to be romantic. Moronica says she already has...something. This conversation is very confusing. I have no idea what they're talking about. I do know that it's supposed to be all sexy. Then Mango kisses her. And the shot of the kiss is way too close. It's almost out of focus, it's so close. I can count the hairs in Mango's nostrils. Finally, Moronica and Mango part. "I gotta go," Moronica says, and bolts. Mango sighs and shakes his head as Moronica runs from him. The Minor Note of Spurned Latin Lovers thwangs in the background.
