Note: The text in square brackets describes audio and visual content in the video other than the dialogue or narration.

[The screen is split into three image frames. The image on the left shows a piñata in the shape of the poop emoji on a mint green background. The image in the middle shows tacos filled with Lego bricks on an old pink background. The image on the right shows a graduation cap made of sand on a mint green background.]

[The three frames start to shrink and shift towards the middle until they're in the centre of the screen, right in front of a young man and a young pregnant woman on an old pink background. Plus signs appear and move till they're placed in between the three frames, forming an equation. A super appears on the screen as the young man speaks into the camera.]

SUPER: Having a child changes the basics.

MAN [looking at his wife]: Having a child redefines the basics.
[The three frames disappear and the couple are now alone in the old pink room. The woman is wearing an orange dress and tenderly holds her pregnant stomach.]

WOMAN: What's our equation?

WOMAN: It completely changed after we got the big news.
[The screen splits again, but this time into two vertical frames. The image on the left shows a close-up of the couple. The wife looks towards her husband as he speaks into the camera. The image on the right shows the same piñata made in the shape of a poop emoji from before. A super appears in the centre of the screen.]

SUPER: basics

MAN: The basics of parenting are that a baby means more expenses.
WOMAN: His needs will always come first.
[The screen separates again, but this time into two horizontal frames. The top image shows the couple, but this time the woman speaks into the camera. The bottom image shows the Lego tacos from before.]

WOMAN: What's our fun?
The super “fun” appears on the screen and stays until the next scene.
[The couple look at each other.]

WOMAN: Taco Tuesdays…
MAN: …and Leftover Wednesdays!
[The screen cuts back to a full-body shot of the couple on an old pink background, looking at the camera.]

MAN: And they don't cost much.
WOMAN: Because we're also thinking about the future.
[Two frames show the graduation cap made of sand on each side of the couple. A super appears in the centre of the screen.]

SUPER: dream

WOMAN: Our dream is that all of his dreams come true.
[Cut. We come back to the screen from the beginning, split into three frames, with the poop emoji piñata on the left, the Lego tacos in the middle and the graduation cap made of sand on the right. Supers indicating percentages appear on each frame, as well as other supers showing the text equation appearing behind the frames.]

SUPER 1: 55% + 20% + 25%

SUPER 2: Basics + fun + dream

MAN VHC: What's really important…
[Cut. Close-up of the couple.]
MAN: …is that we're all living comfortable together.

SUPER: To each their own equation.

WOMAN: To each their own equation.
[The three frames from the beginning come back, but this time each appears on top of another.]

SUPER: Let us help you find yours.
