This storyboard does not have a description.
"He broke up with Olga the following day on the playground... [it] hadn't felt like anything... [w]hat had hurt, however, was when Maritza had dumped him... [he] discover[ed] beautiful Maritza holding hands with butt-ugly Nelson Pardo." (13-4)
"Then he told her. There were no surprises... Oscar, she said gently, I have a boyfriend. She drove him home; at the house he thanked her for her time, walked inside, lay in bed." (48-9)
"La Jablesse gave Oscar the coup de friendship: he walked in on her while she was "entertaining" the punk... he went berserk. Called her a whore... [the] dude [she had been sleeping with] jumped right out the window" (187)
In his childhood years, he reaches his romantic peak by having two girlfriends, Maritza and Olga, at the same time, but Maritza makes him break up with Olga, then ditches him, which begins his bad luck with love.
In high school, he befriends Ana, who shares many of his interests and seems to genuinely enjoy being around him. However, when her boyfriend Manny reenters the picture, she begins to share details with Oscar that make him extremely jealous, leading to the end of their friendship.
In college, he comes close to dating a girl once more with Jenni, only to be disappointed once more that she was only interested in his friendship, not him. His extreme grief leads him to attempt suicide, as he believes he will never find love.
