The anti-confrontation scene in Ishmael Bernal’s Salawahan (1979):
Marian: Good morning.
Sylvia: Same to you.
Marian: Aren’t you going to wish me well?
Sylvia: I’m going to wish you what you’re going to wish me.
Marian: Foreign twang. Girlfriend ako ni Gerry.
Sylvia: Same to me.
Marian: Ano’ng gagawin natin ngayon?
Marian: Hindi ba tayo magko-confrontation?
Sylvia: Huwag na, nakakatamad eh.
Marian: Okay, I’ll see you.
Sylvia: See you.
