Previously on GZSZ…Anni volunteers to be in charge of the door at the MW for a night and John laughs at her. Anni soon proves him wrong and they both go out drinking and progressively get drunker as the night goes on. John eventually acknowledges that Anni is a pretty “cool woman” and proceeds to wake up in her bed the next morning…naked. He’s now freaked out that he’s slept with her…
John and Anni walk out into the kitchen. John’s hair is sticking up all over the place and his cheeks are all flushed. He asks Anni HOW this could happen!! Anni coyly shrugs and tells him that it was a long night, with lots of alcohol and intense talks. She shyly rubs up next to him and he tells her that he doesn’t remember a thing from last night. Anni smirks and tells him that she can’t remember the talks either, but it was all really nice. She says all this in a totally quieter, more feminine voice than I’ve ever heard from Anni before too. John asks “What about Pia?” and Anni replies “John, who cares? Come on, we were totally…”. He yells at her and she concedes, telling him that he told her that Pia’s cheerful nature gets on his nerves sometimes.
Anni continues by telling John that he said some stuff about her looks and her tattoos. He sits down all freaked out and Anni tries to reassure him, saying “Hey man, we shared a bed. These things happen sometimes. It’s OK.” Poor John is completely freaked out by now and tells Anni that Pia can never know about this. Anni pulls a face and John asks her what’s wrong. Anni tells him that he called Pia last night and at first she thought it was quite funny but apparently Pia didn’t find it nearly as funny. He gets up, scratching his head, while Anni looks down. He looks over at her and Anni can no longer keep a straight face.
He stares at her and says “You’re messing with me?!” and Anni now cracks up laughing.
Cut to John walking home. He’s on the phone with Emily telling her that he’s bringing her the replacement apartment keys that he lost last night. He looks over at a park bench and suddenly flashes back to his drunken night with Anni. And it’s one of the most hilarious scenes I’ve seen in ages. John is lying on the ground “looking” for his keys, while Anni tries to help him up. He tells her to let go, that he can get up himself. So Anni lets go and sits down on the bench, waiting for him to get up. Huge round of applause goes out to Felix for his amazing performance of “getting up”…have to say I’ve never seen anything quite like it before…
I actually have no idea how Linda was able to keep a straight face while filming this. After a good 30 seconds, he’s finally up on the bench and throw himself onto Anni’s lap. He eventually slides back down onto the ground, completely passed out. Cut to the cafe later and Anni is telling Elena and Tuner all about her little joke from that morning. Elena asks her if John hit on her and she tells them that he was way too drunk for that and completely blacked out. She tells them that she then told him that they had had sex.
Elena laughs and asks if he believed it. Anni tells them that he naturally believed it and was totally distraught. She then mocks him; “Oh my God, Pia can never know about this!!”. Anni stops and looks over at the door and John is standing there…WHOOPS! As he walks over, he thanks Anni for being so discreet. Tuner and Elena scatter away as John sits down at the counter. Anni asks him if he’s coming tonight and waves her flyer at him. She tells him a few of her “lesbian” friends will also be there.
As she walks away laughing to herself, John looks at the flyer and gets a mischievous look on his face.
Cut to later that night at Anni’s open mic night and I have to say, the GZSZ continuity department are doing a FANTASTIC job! If you looked closely at Anni’s last fliers / posters, they did indeed say her next open mic night was going to be on March 16. Anni brings all her “lesbian” friends a drink (who, oddly enough, we’ve never seen before) and one of them asks her if she’s coming to Nina’s party on Saturday. She tells them yes and they ask her if she’s bringing Jasmin. Sidenote to the writers; it would have been a really interesting storyline to see Jasmin be introduced to all of Anni’s friends and to see how they would have reacted. Sad that we never got to see any of that interaction. It could have been fun #itsnottoolateAnni tells them that Jasmin can’t make it, as she’s at fashion week in Hamburg. I love how this immediately makes one of the girls think that Anni is single but Anni corrects her and tells her that she’s; “Not single, but temporarily free”.
John now takes this opportunity to jump up on stage. He tells them that before they start, he has something he needs to tell them all.
He says that he’s slept with a lesbian and that it was the BEST NIGHT OF HIS LIFE!!!
Anni hangs her head and he continues “Anni Brehme…what can I say? You enchant me. You’re tough and soft at the same time. Yes, you are…what can I say?…WOW! I love you!”. By this stage he’s knelt down next to her and is practically in her face. Anni just stares at him as he finally cracks up laughing.
Anni finally acknowledges the awesome joke and he ruffles her hair as he gets up, with the crowd all cheering. She shakes her head laughing as the open mic night begins. Cut to the end of the night and Anni farewells her friends, telling them that what happens at the cafe stays at the cafe and that they are not allowed to tell anyone what happened there. She then turns back around to face John, who is still smirking away.
He asks his “little mermaid” if everything is OK and starts embracing her. She tells him to “Bite me!” and he laughs. They sit down at the counter for another beer and Anni tells him that he’s got a lot of balls to get up on stage like that and make a fool of himself. He shrugs and tells her that’s how machos are; when their honour is at stake, they are willing to take a risk. Anni then gets serious for a second and says; “If I ever want to sleep with a man, I’ll call you, OK?”. He stares at her and asks her if she’s serious. She slaps his leg laughing saying “Dude, you’re asking for people to mess with you!” BWAHAHA GOOD ONE ANNI!!!!
