When you get married, you tie yourself to another person. Like two pieces of rope tied together, you are connected. That’s why when someone gets married, you can say they tied the knot.

A psychic tells Jason that to find happiness, he has to tie the knot. So he gets some rope and starts tying knots. He can’t figure out which is the right one. His friend Ella shows up and starts to help him.

Jeff arrives and Ella and Jason tell him they are tying the knot. He’s confused. Then he sees the rope and explains to them that tying the knot means getting married. Since Jason doesn’t want to marry Ella, he throws the rope at Jeff.

Have you tied the knot yet?

I have already tie the knot. But watching the clip we found that, when Jason understand what is the tying the knot mean, he through the rope to Jeff. I understand that he threw Ella to Jeff get married as he means.


It will be so unforgivable in my country when the male doing this to his girl friend. Ella so kinds to be continous with Jasson.
