"Hindi. Tingin ko isang bagay siya na akala mo ready ka because you wanted it. You're so tough. We like to believe na we are in control. We like that idea na ‘Hindi, it’s my plan. Plinano ko iyan.’ It took me a while para matanggap na akala mo ginusto mo, akala mo plinano mo but in reality, especially ngayon after tatlong taon, iba eh. Hindi eh.”

“And it won’t be as humbling kung ‘Talaga, naplano mo? Paano mong naplano 'yung ganung bagay?’ Kasi it’s beyond words. Describing being a father especially nung lumabas siya, there is no way na merong tao na naplano 'yung ganung ka-weird and ka-radical na bagay. That’s a life. Buhay 'yung lumabas because of your responsibility.”

Karen also asked the actor what specific responsibilities he got scared of. According to John Lloyd, he was never scared in the first place.

“I didn’t get scared at all. I was scared to admit na parang medyo it’s a little bit too much than what I expected. Pero 'yun ata 'yun eh. I think that’s the whole essence of it.”
