All and Eva (2024) s01e05 Episode Script

And Nils

Now you're here.
Not everything is on track
for our Eva
Come sleep in my bed.
Mads is camping out
in her apartment.
Everywhere are traces of her secret
It's not easy, lying so much
-That was a bit weird.
Stuck in secrets
that she's wound up tight
And all of Eva's friends
see a self absorbed egotist
You have to tell him.
Mads started suspecting
she's putting on an act
In self denial,
she upholds her facade
A kiss and a shag
and look, a happy ending
Is it still aesthetic?
I don't understand you.
Eva Arulf.
I like you very much.
How do you pronounce your last name?
He's strong.
Super Danish.
Super Danish.
You're pretty okay yourself.
That means a lot.
Okay, take it easy.
What's up?
I'll just have a bath.
Jesus, you scared me.
-I'm sorry.
-Let me know when you walk in.
Okay, that's a good idea,
I'll announce,
"Mads is coming into the kitchen."
-I'll just see if the
-No, no.
-I'm just checking if
-No, thanks.
I'm sorry, I just
It feels a bit crowded in here
with the two of us.
I'm just guessing here, but it might
be because we're under a table.
Should we get back up?
Would you like some breakfast?
Yes, please.
I'd love one, thanks.
When were we supposed to be
at your mum's place?
At one in the afternoon.
But I just realised
I have to do a work thing,
if it's okay with you,
we can meet at Mum's place?
Aren't you on sick leave?
Yes, it's just a quick thing.
Okay, let's see
what we're dealing with today.
Is it hard for you to not bring
your work home in the evenings?
I'd like to think I can separate
work and private life.
So you don't get tired of it?
Looking at vaginas all day.
No, it's incredibly fascinating.
Especially when you
have patients for many years,
so you can follow the development.
The physical change
as well as the psychological change
in women becoming mothers,
there are many instincts kicking in,
completely naturally.
I'm no different, at least.
What do you mean, "Mhm"?
Well, you say there's no difference.
-What, do you see something?
-Look how nice and blue it is now.
What the hell are you saying?
It's blue?
It's completely natural.
Your body is preparing
the blood flow,
it makes it stronger,
thicker and more powerful.
Are you saying I have a thick,
powerful, blue vagina.
It's very beautiful.
Your entire body is changing.
Yeah, okay.
Don't be disappointed
if I don't get emotional now,
I'm not like other mums.
I just mean I'm fully aware
anything can happen.
And you don't know
until you've seen
Look at that, a perfect little one.
I'm getting so anxious about this.
Oh, you came!
-Hi, Inger.
-Come on in.
-These are for you.
-Thank you.
-You have to meet everyone.
And you'll talk to Yvonne.
Let's see here, look at this.
I'm eating cake.
That's what I told you,
you don't understand a word.
You don't understand anything?
Should I speak Swedish?
Oh, it's so good.
Now I'll have a big piece.
Never would've thought
Hey, uncle Janne.
you'd get a boyfriend.
I think I always thought
you were a lesbian.
How's work?
It's good, thanks, I've
I've actually been offered
a kind of manager position.
-Oh well, that's, you're incredible.
You're one of those who live to work
while the rest of us work to live.
You'll regret it when you're my age.
Life isn't just about work.
Do you have any plans
for the summer?
There you are, Eva
Oh, wait a minute, I'll help you.
There we go.
That wasn't so bad, was it?
Listen, Eva
Why did you pack up my room?
I never thought you would.
Oh, right, I guess I thought
I needed some change.
I have to tell him.
It's as big as a plum now.
Oh, plums, I don't like them,
they're so
tart and bitter, I
No, I understand.
Of course you should.
It's a shame though, losing him.
The girls are so jealous.
He's so lovely.
Biggan laughed so hard.
I thought she was going to have
a heart attack.
I have something
I wanted to tell you.
I should have just told him
from the start.
I'm such an idiot.
Oh, but
You know, if you had,
you'd never have gotten
to experience all these feelings.
But that would be just as well.
No, but nowI'll just tell him.
I'll just tell him today.
It isn't really a big deal.
It's just a little
I wanted to show you something.
My goodness.
It's a miracle.
A little child in there.
He must be happy about that.
Everyone would be.
Of course he will be, right?
Maybe it can be called Inger.
Damnit Mum,
now I can't name the kid Inger.
-Because you said it.
Oh right, that was silly.
We'll forget about it.
We'll forget about it,
I forget everything anyway.
Oh my goodness.
The girls are so jealous.
That I'll be a grandma
and there's no dad.
There'll be
such a special connection
between me and the little plum.
Mum, you didn't tell them
I'm pregnant, right?
No, well, I mentioned it to Yvonne.
-What the hell, not Yvonne!
-No, but I
But I was going to tell you
Göran, come here.
Hi, thank you.
Eva, I'd love for you to meet Göran.
-Hello Eva.
-Hey, Göran, how are you?
-I'm well.
-Say hello properly.
It's Göran, we've met lots of times,
you live next door, right?
That's right. I do.
But the thing is, we wanted to
tell youOh.
I understand you've started
wanting kids.
-No, I'm not going to have kids.
-I'm not going to have kids.
-Oh, right.
That's what you think now, but
you'll change your mind in the end.
No, I am completely sure.
I know I'm not going to have kids.
I'm 100% sure.
I mean, I like kids,
I think they're
How do you say it, "gullig"?
Happy birthday to you,
happy birthday to you,
happy birthday dear Inger
Eva, what are you doing?
I have to go, this
isn't going to work.
-I'm sorry.
-You can't leave, Eva.
-I'm sorry.
-Eva, what are you talking about?
You can't leave. What do you mean?
I need to alone for a minute
before I know what to say.
Hey there, Nils.
Nils, hello?
Wow, it's looking lovely.
Wait, did you give them the iPads?
You wanted me
to deal with the steps.
Yeah, but that doesn't mean
they need a screen.
But it's so hard
if they're running around here.
It'll be much quicker
if they're just over there,
and I can just get this done.
I just think it's strange,
whenever I'm cleaning or something,
they just run around with me.
But it's like you can't do anything
unless they're on a screen.
It feels like they've got the iPads
to make it easier for you.
What's wrong with it being easier?
Yeah but they shouldn't look
at screens so much.
I don't think it's a big deal.
-No, but I do.
-Yeah, but you
-I think so.
-You're on your phone all the time,
why can't they?
Because they're kids,
they should be running around,
having a happy childhood,
kicking a ball.
-I'm already a lost cause.
-It's an hour or so.
It's not going to ruin them.
But now they'll ask for the iPad
for the rest of the day,
it's like amphetamines.
You're exaggerating.
We have different opinions
about this.
And I'm not so sure
that you're right.
I just think it's crazy that
we view raising children
completely differently.
Honey, as long as we do our best,
they'll be good people.
iPad or not.
Whatare you doing?
I was just gonna push you
against the wall.
Nils, you really don't get it.
You're so grumpy.
Did I do something?
No, it's more about
what you haven't done.
Can we please speak more plainly?
Right now it feels like
everything I do is wrong.
Okay, maybe we should start
going to therapy.
Therapy? We just got married.
I know and it's wonderful, but that
doesn't have to me we're not good.
James got lots of new tools
to handle various situations.
More preemptively
and for communication.
I think we communicate really well.
That's the problem, Nils,
that you think that.
Because we don't. You don't see me.
I just cleaned the steps,
that you've been complaining about
for ages.
I don't care about the steps, Nils.
It's like you stopped listening.
Maybe Eva was right,
we're stagnating.
I don't do anything but listen.
You do it wrong.
Right, thanks.
Then you're not very easy
to understand.
No, and that's why
we should maybe get help.
-So we can understand each other.
-It feels like you want to fight.
Can't you just tell me
what you want me to do?
I do all the time, Nils.
I tell you very clearly what I need
but nothing happens.
Like what?
Like that I want us
to have real sex.
I want to talk about how
to best raise our children.
I wantWhat the hell do I want?
I want us to talk about feelings.
About dreams for the future.
I make it so fucking easy for you.
Nils, I say to you,
"This is what I need. If you give
that to me, it will make me happy."
But it's like it doesn't matter
enough to you to do it.
What the hell is going on with you?
Suddenly you decide,
"Josefine is changing."
And you expect me to change too.
As if your way
is the only right way.
So what is your way, Nils?
Can you tell me that?
What is your way?
Can you tell me what you're feeling?
You never say what you're feeling.
Tell me what you need!
I don't know.
-But you've stopped
-I don't know.
You don't care anymore.
You're too comfortable,
like you feel like you don't need
to make an effort anymore.
Isn't that what's great
about what we have?
We know where we stand
with each other.
We don't have to pretend,
like we do everywhere else.
I thought that was
our entire fucking thing.
But I want you to make an effort
for me, Nils.
I'm sorry.
I'm sorry.
I thought we were good.
I'm sorry, I don't know how
I turned into such a fucking cliché.
A 40-year-old mum with anxiety,
I don't even know how I got here.
You're not a cliché.
But hey, did something happen?
You're so kind.
I'm sorry.
It's okay.
It's okay.
I did something stupid.
What did you do?
-Hi, honey.
We'll talk about it later.
We'll talk about it later.
Did you do something?
It's fine, honey.
This doesn't happen
if your relationship is good.
It happens for a reason.
So, did you?
No, I didn't
We didn't sleep together, we
Nils, listen.
This might lead somewhere good.
Now I know for sure
it's you I want to be with.
I love you, we can see this
as the start of something new.
Maybe we'll
We'll have another child.
It didn't mean anything.
It was someone from work who's
not nearly as attractive as you.
I promise I'll load the dishwasher!
Don't touch me.
What are you doing?
I was just sorting out the flowers.
Excuse me, would you like a seat?
Are you seriously saying I look
that old, that I'd need a seat?
It's hard to see these days.
Well, excuse me.
Excuse me for not knowing
when to get up for the elderly.
You women are
so incredibly fucking annoying.
You have to read absolutely
everything between the lines.
I don't understand anything.
I'm supposed to understand
what you mean without you saying it?
How would that even be possible?
Maybe if I was
a fucking mind reader.
I try to do the right thing.
I want to be happy.
You could have just politely said,
"No thanks."
Instead of being
a passive aggressive grumpy cunt.
Ladies first.
Hi, why are you here?
She told you?
You knew?
Come in.
You could use some wine.
Why didn't you tell me?
Oh, that has to be between you.
Since when did that stop you?
Since I started seeing
my psychologist.
He says I have to start doing that.
You know, have more integrity.
Can you imagine,
she tried to make into my fault?
As if I made her cheat on me.
Do you understand
how fucked up this is?
It's so fucked up.
But Nils
Of course it isn't your fault.
-It isn't.
You shouldn't cheat.
It's wrong, I'm totally against it.
Butyou can't give up.
I haven't given up.
I'm the one who hasn't given up.
No, but you've been complacent.
You don't have any real
What should I call it?
I do have sparkle.
Nils, you are
You're an amazing husband.
Or at least a very good dad.
All I'm saying is that
it takes both of you
in a relationship.
You need to
you need to listen to each other.
And you have to evolve together.
Or you can take turns,
that works too.
You need to see each other.
-Do you understand?
-Yes, exactly!
You know, I do everything for her.
-Everything I do is for Josefine.
So she doesn't see me either.
You know, I sort out the garden,
the washing.
I don't think it's ever
occurred to her
that the food is always cooked
and the fridge is stocked.
If it was up to her
to pay the bills,
where do you think
we'd be every month?
-The debtor's office.
-That's true.
If she only knew how often
I needed to do her dishes.
Every day.
But the difference is that
I don't need affirmation for that,
all the time, like she does.
"Look, I taught the kids
counting while also cleaning."
She wants praise, you know?
What the hell is that about?
How many times should you have to
tell someone how good they are?
Just for doing what's expected
of you in any normal relationship.
-Yes, and I understand
-I don't understand it.
No, but I understand.
I understand your experience.
Totally, and it might be
a little stereotypical.
But it's a stereotype because
Because it is.
But if you'll let me explain
what I mean,
because I think
she'd rather that you
Well, to be thoroughly
fucked by you.
Than that you're doing dishes.
I mean, put her on the kitchen
counter and just fuck her.
But of course,
if the dishes are important to you,
that's where you have to meet.
Was that the doorbell?
Who the hell
did I give the code to now?
What are you doing here?
-Can I come in?
-No you can't, I have company.
Please, I've been walking for hours,
I need to talk.
You can't act like shit and then
just show up when it suits you.
Friendship doesn't work that way.
I know I fucked up,
please let me in to talk a little.
No, I can only save one person
at a time.
But call me later, kisses.
Hi, can I come in?
I can't believe I've been so stupid.
What is it this time?
Mads doesn't want kids.
And I've got a big, powerful smurf
vagina, but that
I was going to tell him.
But I can't now, it would be awful
to put him in that position.
I don't know what to do, I can't
keep just hanging out with him.
-It's impossible to just
-Tell him?
Why did I have to meet him now?
I should never have gotten pregnant.
-That's it, I should never have
-Jesus, can you even hear yourself?
Are you angry?
You put yourself in this situation,
figure it out yourself.
Wait, what's going on?
And you come here, looking
for sympathy, it's so selfish.
I'm sorry, it's been a lot lately,
how about some sympa
What if it's been a lot for me too?
Did you consider that?
What if I need help too?
You're the kind of
childishly selfish
that's only possible
if you've lived alone for too long.
And who leaves their best friend's
wedding to go to Copenhagen?
You didn't even bring a gift.
-I didn't find one that was
You're out of touch with reality.
Why are there no
clean fucking dishes?
Everything is dirty!
And poor Mads, who has no idea
you're carrying another man's child.
It's his child.
I chose an open donor in Copenhagen.
I changed my mind, and then
I tracked him down.
I thought I'd never see him again
and then everything just happened.
But why didn't you tell me?
Because it's crazy.
It seemed less crazy if only I knew,
I don't know, Josefine.
You're my best friend,
we don't judge each other.
Best friends don't lie
to each other, Eva.
Why are you so angry?
I'm so sick of everything
always being about Eva.
We thought it'd get better
when you got pregnant, but
it's got even worse.
You have no idea of how I'm doing
or what's going on in my life.
Because you don't ask.
Because you don't care enough.
-Yes I do, you could have
-I don't want to talk about it now.
I'm deciding we're taking
a break from this now.
So neither of us says something
in the moment,
something stupid,
like you did the other night.
Who wants some supper?
Get off my seat.
There, some milk for you.
-Should I
-No, you can just leave.
-This food is gross.
-You think so?
We have gross food right now
because Mum is swimming
through a sea of shit,
just so I can dive into it,
stay there a while,
then come out of it,
evolve into an amazing mum
who'll give you fucking lobster
for snacks, okay?
Why did you just leave?
I think it's best if you go back
to Denmark.
This was stupid.
Did I do something?
No, it's
It's me.
You're going with the classic?
What is it?
What's going on with you?
There is a reason
I lived like I did before.
Alone. I
I would like to keep doing that.
This was
a summer fling.
There is something you're not
telling me, I'm not stupid.
No, there isn't.
There isn't?
Eva, I'm not leaving
until you tell me what it is.
So you may as well just say it.
There isn't anything.
The problem is
I don't think you want this.
There's something
you're not telling me,
and you'd rather end it
than take the consequences.
These are the consequences
of a relationship.
It's so complicated.
I don't want that.
I was stupid and thought
it might not happen,
but it did and I don't want it.
We're not breaking up because
we were never really together.
That's such a childish way
of looking at life.
Okay, Eva, you're a realist.
This is what life is.
That's how it is,
you choose a person,
then you're with that person.
For better or for worse. The end.
You can also opt out of that.
I have that right.
Yes you do,
you just have to tell me why
Is it some
unresolved childhood trauma?
Or is there someone else?
Is it that simple?
Eva, is that it?
Is there someone else?
Stop, you can't just take my
computer, that's crazy!
Come on.
Can you please open the door,
don't look at my computer, Mads.
Don't look at my computer.
Please, Mads.
You're pregnant.
But 12 weeks, we haven't
It's his?
You've had another man's child
in your belly this whole time?
Are you still seeing him?
Are you together?
Hello, you've reached Inger Arulf.
She always picks up.
Maybe she fell again.
Mum, I thought something
had happenedWhat
What's he doing to you, Mum?
Let's seeDo you have a pen?
Göran and I
Yes, I saw. Or I
I can see that.
I've tried to tell you about this
several times,
but you've been so absorbed
in your own things.
I thought you were dead.
I'm more alive
than I've been in a long time.
How long has this
been going on?
Since Dad was alive?
Is that why he didn't like Göran?
Absolutely not, this
It has
But it's the best thing
that's happened to me.
I was inspired by you, Eva.
Mads left.
-What happened there?
I think it's best if you
go sort out some tea and biscuits.
We often have that after
Right, I don't need to know, thanks.
After eight in the evening, I mean.
Well, I toldNo, I didn't, but
It's over.
Oh, sweetheart.
Well, I guess there was
no other possible outcome.
Excuse me?
You've been the biggest cheerleader.
Yes, I wanted you
to experience some love.
And get to open up the hard shell
you've closed yourself
in for so long.
It is the best thing
you can experience.
Put it here, thanks.
Is he still selling old patents?
-He makes a lot of money.
-So immoral.
Oh, and that's coming from you?
Are you happy?
I'm happier than I've been
in many years.
I'm sorry, Mum.
I'm sorry for being so selfish.
I've only thought of myself,
I'm sorry.
You're all I have, it's you and me.
It's always been us, Mum, right?
Yes, sweetheart, it's you and me.
Now it's you and me and the baby.
-Yes, of course.
-I'm sorry, Mum.
You know what,
you are hereby forgiven.
Thank you. Just you and me.
Can I sleep here tonight?
Mm. Or not tonight,
but later this week.
Tonight is not really a good time,
but later in the week.
I'm fine on my own anyway.
Mm, you are.
Gross, there's poo.
No, no, no.
Oh god.
There, there.
-I'm sorry.
No, that's okay.
It was a little crooked,
so I was just
-straightening it.
-Oh, right.
But they're attached with concrete,
so that'll be difficult.
-Right, that's why it was so heavy.
Can I offer you a cup of tea inside?
No, I don't believe in God.
How did you end up here?
