Gerald Ribbon has a habit of ruining his love life.
The bird in his brain gives him terrible advice, and he is stuck dealing with the consequences.
He screwed up his relationship with Jessica, who has now moved on and is seeing someone new. But the fear of damaging another friendship prevents Gerald from openly expressing his feelings for his best friend, Allen. When Allen begins to date Diana, Gerald feels himself getting left behind and tries to form a wedge between the two. Ultimately, Allen and Diana's relationship reaches a breaking point, and Gerald needs to be louder than the noisy bird in his brain and do what is right for his friend and himself.
