Ms. Purple (2019) Movie Script

- Cheers.
- Cheers.
Be a lot cooler
if it was during the day.
That would have been
a lot cooler. You have a story?
I'm glad you're here. Cheers.
Cheers, guys!
Where are the other girls?
Uh, they're booked right now.
They're in the other rooms.
Can you... Can you get them?
Yeah, I can call them.
But it'll probably take...
No, just... Weren't you just
in another room right now?
It's been an hour,
I mean, come on.
Yeah, but they're
not available right now.
The lights.
Turn around.
- What is your name?
- Kasie.
- He's asking how old you are?
- Twenty-three.
- Do you have a boyfriend? Tell me.
- Tell him right now.
I don't fucking believe
this girl.
He's your boyfriend
tonight, okay?
You owe me money!
Hey! Hey, hey!
Get the fuck away, jeez!
Whoa, whoa, whoa.
Let's go, let's go...
Give me my money!
Go. Go, bro.
Hey, you okay?
- Huh?
- Yeah.
I'm sorry, I didn't know
they owed you money.
I wouldn't have given
them the keys.
You want me to call the cops?
You want to wait inside?
Come on, I'll get you
some water.
I'll be fine.
Hello? Hey.
Hey, yeah, I was just wondering
what you were doing.
- They fucking lost?
- Who's in here?
Seriously, zip that shit up, take the
shit, and get the fuck out of here.
Where the hell's that bullet?
I got it. Don't worry about it.
In the next 30 minutes
when this shit kicks in,
I don't give a fuck
where we're going.
- Kasie...
- Yeah, we're gonna have a party tonight.
- Oh, I do.
- Ah, perfect.
Speaking of which...
Am I lighting this up
for everybody or...
- Can you get a refund?
- No, dude.
You want one?
Anything working yet?
- All right, now we're all having fun.
- Yo, this shit's fire,
- where'd you get this from?
- Your boy came through.
Don't touch my fucking balloons.
What the fuck?
Hey! Not blue.
Don't fucking hurt blue!
Stop! Let's get
the fuck outta here.
Yo, look at this guy's...
- Juanita! Please don't leave.
- I'm sorry, mi hija.
- I took another job at a hospice.
- But please, you can't leave.
- You have to give me enough time to find someone else.
- I'm sorry!
You told me months ago you
were looking for someone else.
- Juanita, you can't do this to me.
- It's too late. I have to go.
- If it's about the money issue, I can give you more money.
- No, it's not just about money.
- We don't know when he's going to die.
- Please don't leave.
It could be months.
It could be tomorrow!
Put him in a hospice. Would you do that?
Put him in a hospice!
Do you understand? There's help there.
There'll be other people.
- I don't want him in a hospice!
- I can't do this anymore.
- I don't want to put my dad in a hospice!
- You're not listening to me!
I can't do this anymore.
It's too hard. I can't.
- I'll talk to the hospice about giving you a discount.
- You can't do this to me.
You'll figure it out.
Hey, Carey.
I haven't seen you
in like a month,
so I just wanted to see
how you were doing.
I was thinking we could go to Koreatown
Plaza tomorrow to grab some lunch.
I know you like
the food court there,
so I could just meet you there.
Let me know, okay? Bye.
All right, all right.
Hey, excuse me.
Can I talk to you for a second?
Sure, I'm really late
to work, though.
- Miss, can I ask you a really quick question?
- I'm sorry, I'm late...
I was just wondering
if you could like
take care of my dad,
be like a live-in nurse.
I'm sorry, I already have
a full-time job.
- You've got to leave.
- I'm not even going inside.
Do your dad a favor,
put him in hospice.
- Miss! Miss, can I ask you...
- No!
- I'm so sorry.
- Get off me!
Out. Get out. Go.
Mind if I get one of those?
Thank you.
If you don't mind me asking,
how old do you have to be
to work in there?
I've seen girls as young
as 15 who say they're 18.
- Fifteen?
- Mm-hmm.
Wow, quinceaeras, huh?
Quince... You don't know
what a quinceaera is?
You ever been to one?
My sister's having one.
Ah, shit.
- What's your name?
- Kasie.
Kasie, I'm Octavio.
- Nice to meet you.
- I've got to go park this car, but I'll be right back.
I'd rather be talking to you...
You have one unheard message.
Hey Carey,
so, like, it's just that...
I'm kind of in a bind right now.
And like Dad's live-in nurse
just quit.
I was just wondering if like
there was any possibility
that you could come over
and watch him.
End of message.
To delete this message, press...
- You play the piano?
- Hmm?
You can play it if you want.
I'm glad you're here.
This should be more than enough
to get you by through the month.
- Thank you.
- And then next month,
when you need more, let's talk.
Don't run away.
It's a lot of money.
- I won't.
- No?
You're uh...
- What?
- The...
Never mind.
I'll take care of Dad.
You can come in.
Yeah, just uh...
give me a second.
Do you want something
to eat, or water?
No, I'm good.
We can share the living room.
Old times.
Do you want your blanket?
I got. I got it, I got it.
Okay, it's all right.
I can tuck you in.
Okay. Yeah, but you
don't have to. It's fine.
Just stop.
- You're not even tucking yourself.
- Just stop. Stop!
Isn't that the wallpaper
that you and Mom put up?
It's still ugly.
The fuck was she thinking?
Yeah, that's what Dad said too.
You're not going to bed?
Uh, in a little bit.
You're just gonna keep staring
at me all night, or...
Are you gonna go to bed?
- Nice.
- Welcome.
Okay, so this is
the facility, huh?
Yeah, we have about
5,000 square feet.
- A showroom back here.
- Yeah, Reece.
We'll take some samples
and see how it goes.
Sure, so what
I'm going to do is...
Oh, fuck.
How'd you get him outside?
Pushed him.
The bed has wheels, you know.
Why are you laughing?
Just remembering that time
Dad caught me and Jamie up here.
What were you guys doing?
Just, you know...
Innocent shit.
Okay, really?
No, she was giving me a blowjob.
Well, no wonder he got mad.
He just acted that way
in front of you.
He was laughing about it
with me after.
Oh, really?
Holy shit! What the fuck?
What is wrong with you?
Oh, stop! Okay, okay, okay!
- Jesus Christ.
- Okay, truce. Truce.
What the fuck is wrong with you?
Truce, can I treat you
to some ice cream,
if you're not busy right now?
- You've got to be fucking crazy.
- Yeah?
- That's your way of asking me for ice cream?
- Yes! Come on.
- You paying?
- Mm-hmm.
- Get your shit. Let's go.
- Okay. Yeah.
- What about Dad?
- He'll be fine. It's only a few hours. Come on.
Told you
I was gonna get you back.
Whoa, whoa, whoa!
- Hurry up.
- Eat.
All right. It's pretty good.
Not a care in the world.
- Oh!
- What?
- It's okay, dude.
- What?
Oh, you think you're cool now?
Me too.
- Twinsies!
- Definitely not gonna help you.
You shouldn't smoke
these things.
They're terrible for you.
Here you go.
The Cherry-Jelly Collab.
- Now we go... Is that okay with you?
- Let's go.
Hey, hi, Kasie.
- Oh, hey.
- How you doing?
Good, yeah. Uh, what
are you doing here?
I own this property.
I bought it with all the money that I
was making off tips from the other place.
I'm kidding. I work here now.
It's good. Is this
your boyfriend?
Oh, uh, no. My brother.
- Brother? Nice to meet you, bro.
- Yeah. Carey.
- Octavio.
- Hey.
Um, it's good seeing you.
Yeah, well, listen, I thought I
actually was never gonna see you again.
You know, you were gonna
look for me
in all these places and...
Yeah, totally.
Love that necklace.
Love that sweater too.
What's that photo...
You guys do the photo booth?
I love photo booths.
Yeah, we went earlier.
You wanna, you wanna...
Wanna go do
a photo booth sometime?
I got a lot of cars coming in.
- And I just like...
- I have a boyfriend.
- You have a boyfriend.
- Yeah.
All right, well...
Listen, take my phone number,
all right?
And if you get bored
or whatever, just...
Here, I'll do it really quick.
Sorry, I know this
is random, but...
I just really wanted
to see you again.
Thought I wasn't gonna see you again.
All right,
you get bored, text me.
Okay, yeah, um...
- Okay, yeah. All right, um...
- I'm gonna go now. Yeah.
- Good to see you.
- Good... seeing you too.
Hey, we're going
to an engagement party tonight.
I own a fabric factory in China.
This is actually one of my customers.
He's like a master hanbok maker.
He does custom hanboks.
I'm gonna buy you a hanbok.
We'll go today, okay?
I would walk 500 miles
And I would walk 500 more
Just to be the man
who walks a thousand miles
To fall down at your door
When I'm working
yes I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man
who's working hard for you
And when the money comes in
for the work I do
I'll pass almost
every penny on to you
When I come home
well I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man
who comes back home to you
I would walk 500 miles
And I would walk 500 more
Do you need help?
No, I'm good.
Just uh... Just finishing up.
- It's not bad.
- Yeah?
- That's it for you?
- I ate earlier.
- It's all for you.
- Oh, yeah?
Doesn't look like it.
I'm just saying,
you're just skinny.
Why are you laughing?
- What? Why are you laughing?
- I was remembering about that fucking kid you beat up...
when you were fat.
Two little fat kids
on the ground.
You mean Derek?
I wasn't that fat.
You guys were like little...
little gerbils rolling
around and around.
Oh, man,
you fucked him up, though.
You remember Dad?
Yeah, how he gave me
a high-five.
Yeah. Oh, man.
He was pretty proud of you.
Did you ever think about
what you want to do?
What? Where is this...
Kind of like,
I don't know, a job.
- Uh, yeah.
- I don't mind giving you money, but...
I'll get a job. It's fine.
You really don't have
to worry about me.
I found something yesterday.
What'd you find?
- It was in the closet.
- Okay.
It's green.
And black and white.
- Um...
- Your piano.
- Okay. Okay.
- Your piano.
If you want to call it that.
It's more like a little keyboard.
I think it still works.
I think it just needs
some batteries.
Don't you think it would be fun?
Have a little recital?
What do you say?
You used to love playing that thing.
You went to school for fucking piano.
- Yeah, I know I went to school for piano.
- Yeah, and you didn't finish.
I mean, you liked it, right?
- Yeah, I liked it.
- So why didn't you finish school?
- Dad.
- I just...
I mean, what if
I got a job for that?
- If you got a job...
- If I got a job, will you go back to school?
- Hmm.
- All right?
Is that in?
That's it, right?
That sounds familiar. Wait...
It just sounds like you're
playing random keys.
That's not fair. Uh...
It works.
I think I'm okay.
Uh... Okay.
Hey, um...
Are you ever curious
about what I do for work?
I mean, I know what you do.
Have people... Have...
Do you ever wonder
where the money comes from?
I know where it comes from.
Does it bother you?
Kasie, it doesn't bother me.
Kasie, whatever you had to do to keep Dad
alive, I don't judge you for it, okay?
I don't.
I just think that you should...
You should think about
after, you know?
Wanna go?
I've been doing valet now
for like seven...
Six months, seven months,
something like that.
Do you take a class around here?
Uh, class? What do you mean?
Ballet... class.
No, "valet," like I park cars.
Not "ballet," like dance, no.
I thought you said ballet.
I was like, "That's cool."
I don't do ballet. I mean,
I got nothing against it.
But it's just not the thing
where I grew up, you know?
So what about you? You, uh...
You live alone? Roommates?
No, I... I live with my dad,
and then my brother, for now.
My dad was like a dick to my
brother, so he left when I was 15.
What about your mom?
Um, she left when we were kids.
- What was that?
- I don't know!
It got too serious.
And I don't like seriousness.
Now it's awkward.
- Excuse me?
- Yeah?
Are you a resident here?
Yeah, uh, well no.
I'm just his caretaker.
I'm taking him back to his room.
- Oh, what unit?
- Uh, 1206.
Excuse me, can you hold that?
You know, my sister's
kinda crazy,
and I don't really know who...
who's gonna be
at the party. Gloria!
- Hi!
- Um...
- Es ella?
- Yeah, yeah.
Okay. Hi, Kasie!
Nice to meet you.
Make yourself at home.
We're just kicking it.
- We're relaxing, okay?
- You want a drink?
- Hi.
- This is Kasie. This is my youngest sister.
- Nice to meet you.
- She's the baby of the family.
She's having a quinceaera soon.
Hey, hey. Umma.
Hey, it's Chunso.
Umma, you don't recognize me?
Look at me.
So, um...
Wanna come to
my sister's quinceaera?
Isn't it like private time
with you?
Yeah, I guess. But you're
practically family now.
Let's have fun at this wedding.
You look very pretty today.
Thank you.
Hey. Move in with me.
- Move in with you?
- Uh-huh.
I don't think
it's a good idea right now.
What are you talking about?
You know how my dad's
like really sick...
What the fuck? Do you know how
stupid you're being right now?
Do you know what
I just fucking offered you?
- Did you guys go till late night that night?
- Yeah, we did.
Hey Tony, you got company, huh?
Kasie, hey, you're gonna be
with Martin next weekend.
Sounds good.
What is she, a doumi girl?
- She's my doumi.
- You brought a doumi to a wedding?
I did. I always do.
I did at John's wedding.
- Can I get next?
- Can I get next after that?
All three of you.
What's your schedule like next week?
And then they tend to
run away just like that.
- Wow.
- Go have fun.
Hey, what's up?
Everything okay at home?
Yeah, I mean... Yeah.
Everything's fine.
Everything... Everything good?
Yeah, everything's fine.
Kasie, hello?
Kasie, hello, hello?
Yeah, I'm still here.
You know you could...
You know you could talk to me,
right? If you need to?
I'll just talk to you
when you get back?
All right. All right...
Appa. Appa!
Hey, wake up.
Dad, get off me please!
Dad! Let go!
Huh? Yeah, yeah...
I don't have money.
Where'd you go?
Carey, I found Dad on the floor.
He could have died.
I can't do this.
Do what?
I can't do this anymore.
I think...
I think you should
put him into hospice.
I'm not gonna put him
in hospice.
He needs professional attention.
He's terminal.
He's gonna die.
It'll be easier on you, okay?
You'll be able to live
your own life.
- We'll look for hospice cares in the morning.
- No, I'm not going to do that.
- It's the only thing to do. Stop playing fucking games!
- I'm not gonna put him there.
I'm not gonna leave him
like you did!
I'm not letting you leave.
I've already decided. All right?
What are you doing?
Get the fuck
out of my way, Kasie!
Listen, I'm not coming back,
You fucking stay here
and deal with this fucking shit,
because I don't fucking need it!
Isn't this what you want?
I even dressed up for you!
So Juanita says
you're a friend of hers.
- Uh-huh.
- Great.
Well, we're gonna do everything
that we can to help you.
Did you have any questions
for me specifically?
Ah, no.
How are you?
I'm okay.
It's just...
- It's just hard.
- It's always really hard with parents,
but I just want to reassure you,
putting your dad in hospice,
it may seem like you're giving up,
but actually, you're really honoring
how he spends his final days.
When did you want
to bring him in?
Um... Is tomorrow okay?
Tomorrow's fine. Absolutely.
Thank you.
Hi. The name's Cathy.
- Kasie.
- Nice to meet you.
Nice to meet you.
Sometimes, like,
they'll ask for your number or something.
Oh, do I have to give it?
No, no, no, of course you don't.
Because I have
a boyfriend. All right.
Just like give them
your KakaoTalk instead.
- Okay.
- So you don't have to give them your real number.
Also, you know, just be sure
to pretend to have fun.
- Because, you know.
- Uh-huh.
Watch out for your drink.
Okay. We have to pour them drinks
as well as sit next to them?
No, not always.
But, you know,
watch out for your drinks.
And you don't have to do
drugs if you don't want to.
Drugs? Sometimes you...
Sometimes they'll have
drugs in the room.
- You don't have to do it. Just be careful.
- But I can if I want.
- Yeah, just be careful.
- All right.
Okay, doesn't sound
so hard. We'll see.
- Oh, we're in this room.
- Oops.
Just knock and then go in.
- Fucker owed like ten stacks.
- Nah, he's still there.
When we were younger,
he used to take us to the fucking clubs
- and get us in fucking fights...
- All the fucking time.
- All the fucking time.
- It was a fucking thing.
We grew up with that shit, dude.
You remember that?
Yo, where's he at these days?
What the fuck
are you doing here?
Can you believe she just walked
in your... Is she following you?
Kasie? Yo, hey...
- What the fuck?
- Yo, no. Hey. Kasie!
No, grab her. Grab her.
Hey, nobody told you
to fucking go.
Kasie, sit the fuck down.
Get your ass inside.
Sit your ass fucking down.
Johnny, watch this.
Yo, Kasie,
pour him a fucking drink.
- Pour him a fucking drink.
- Hey, what's up, beautiful?
Pour him a fucking drink!
- How you doing?
- Then pour us a drink.
We need anything better than your
fucking loudmouth. Let's see...
So what do you want again? Anything
that'll make you twerk on over there.
Anything, right? Okay.
- We get the mood going.
- Hold on, how about yours?
Okay. Yeah!
Setting the mood.
He's a fool. He's a fool.
Shut the fuck up. Drink!
- That's what she does best.
- I mean, look. Here.
Let's try it again.
You don't like that? Huh?
- So Kasie, you got a boyfriend?
- Doesn't matter.
It does matter, 'cause I'm
trying to take you out.
That's fucking rude.
Drink the whole goddamn thing.
Why don't you fucking listen sometimes
and just fucking do something?
He's asking you to do something.
Kasie, are you fucking dumb?
Yo! Fucking listen to me.
I finished mine.
Oh, actually I got a little more.
It's me and you. No?
What do you mean?
Now another one.
There you go.
Now you're listening.
- Ah! She's good.
- No!
Why you fighting it? Come here.
What the fuck!
- No...
- Come here.
Come here. I said,
come over here.
All this is making me
wanna do it more.
Come on.
Stop. Let me go!
Dude, she wants to kiss me,
she just doesn't know it yet.
What's wrong with you, huh?
Stupid ho!
Fucking told you.
All I wanted was a fucking kiss.
Get off me! Stop!
Stop! Stop!
You're fucking lucky I don't fucking
slam your head in the goddamn floor!
- Stop!
- Feel that bitch? Yeah!
- Holy shit!
- This bitch fucking hit me!
She had the fucking nerve
to hit me!
- Let go!
- So hit her fucking back.
Do it again! Do it again!
Hit me again! Huh? Hit me again!
- Stop!
- I wanna see it! Do it!
What the fuck did you do?
You fucking crazy bitch!
Dark clouds
Hanging over my body
Float in the gray
- Come on, let's go to the hospital.
- No.
They all seemed
like they needed somebody.
The men at the karaoke.
They all reminded me of Dad.
