Bump (2021) s01e08 Episode Script

The Strange Situation

You know that you don't have to go.
I know you're sorry
for not being clever
about your activities in this house.
the real betrayal is
that you're leaving me here,
by myself, with these people.
You know this saying,
"don't shit where you eat"?
Never at a wedding.
That is so basic!
I'm sorry, OK, Rosa? I just
You want to have 100 girlfriends
like Cristiano Ronaldo.
Great idea. I love it. I love it!
But it doesn't come cheap.
Go and pay for Angel's taxi.
- What?
- Go!
I'm sorry about everything.
These feelings, you know,
they are for your girlfriend,
if that's what you call a
person you had a baby with,
but no sex.
This the sad, lonely cousin?
You need help with that?
Some boys just need to smile more.
- Whoo!
- Bye!
What the fuck?
You OK?
You know Kamali from
Young Global Leaders?
Oh, yeah.
She messaged everyone
pretending to be stressed out
because she got into
Columbia and Harvard.
- Well, it's very impressive.
- Yeah.
Let's hope she doesn't choke on
her humble brag before deciding.
There's plenty of good options here, Ol.
Sydney, UNSW, ANU
Mum. Ew.
Well, you know, those US
schools and scholarships,
it's very competitive.
Not if you get in.
And what about Baby J?
It's not the Stone Age, Mum.
I'm sure Harvard has a creche.
Haven't seen Santi
around for a few days.
Well, yeah.
Maybe he's got his
own life. Or whatever.
Oh. Baby wipes?
Morning, morning. Oly.
Yes. Thank you.
Spoke to her yet?
Thank you.
Oh! Sorry!
I didn't mean to make a
scene and embarrass you.
Uce, fix that shit.
I'm with him, sir.
Oh, well, make sure you
pass the history exam, Vince.
We are very lucky to be
approached for this initiative
and to help rebuild
those important networks
of social support in
our local communities.
The money raised from your videos
goes towards the first community event.
The video that raises the most
will be used for the launch
of the online program.
And also you get cute certificates.
OK, then.
You've been given your groups,
so I suggest you spend some time and
Or OK, then.
You gotta go do something about it, uce.
Hey, Oly.
Can we help you?
Yeah, I was just gonna say
I was gonna say to Oly
if you wanted to switch groups,
our group's just over there.
You could come join ours if you wanted.
I didn't know you were
in charge of the groups.
That's not what I'm saying.
Oly, we're going to the quad, stat.
Yeah, we should probably just
stick with our own groups.
Remember that a simple
idea executed well
Maybe we could hang out later.
I don't know. I have a
lot of study to do, so
Maybe I could take Jacinda for a walk.
You can walk her whenever you want.
- What was that about?
- Oh, nothing.
What's his problem?
I don't know.
Maybe he feels too
constrained by the parameters.
Did you guys break up?
I don't even know if we were together
because he refuses to
acknowledge any labels.
- You're so your dad.
- My dad's not bisexual.
So you are bisexual!
No, Oly, this is all so pedantic.
Trying to understand
what's going on is pedantic?
Do you wanna hang with me or not?
Do you see what I'm dealing with here?
Um, OK.
Um, well, I I think that
I think that it's nice
that he just wants
to recognise your soul
and not the label or or the package.
Mm, thank you, yes.
But if you really cared for Lachie,
then you'd see that he
just wants reassurance
that your souls are together
and not getting with any
other packages, yeah?
Somehow you've succeeded in
making the concept of a soul
sound uptight.
OK, should we get on
with the video idea?
We don't literally have to
make a video. Like, who cares?
For God's sake!
It's OK.
It's not like I'm winning at life.
Things not so good
with Mr Introspective?
That's over.
I'm totally fine about it.
I sincerely hope you lot aren't
going to bore me to death.
Um, no way. We are not having
cringe vibes in our vid.
- That's my rule.
- No, no rules.
Rules are so heteronormative. Yuck.
And snap.
That fully ties in with my idea,
and what I'm hearing is
we are all feeling the need
to break out, yes?
So is this, like, a
partner-type situation?
Should we, I don't know,
pick a dance partner?
Just do your own thing.
Yeah, yeah, but isn't it like a
Isn't it about, like, a connection?
Yeah, connection to your true self.
- Alright?
- Yeah, OK.
So we good, then?
Look, there is nothing
to be ashamed about
knocking up a boujee geek
who's left you on read.
She hasn't left me on read.
Even if she should have.
Then why is she cosy
o' yonder with her ex?
- Why do you give a shit, huh?
- 'Ex' is so prescriptive.
Hey, maybe we should split
up into pairs or something.
No, we need an equaliser here
or we are never gonna get a flow.
You got any weed?
I'm not carrying buds
around with me 24/7.
Look, I am not trying to
box you in to your identity,
but, like do you?
- You do?
- Yeah, OK, I do.
- Ah!
- Yes!
- Come on, man.
- No, no, no, no, no.
You don't need to do
this. This is unnecessary.
I thought my idea of getting
made up as the Kardashians,
holding hands, getting electrocuted
and then all dying together
as a PSA on the dangers
of social media was good.
But this I'm also into.
- Blurggh!
- Lurggh!
Plus, I fuckin' love zombies.
Stop smiling. You're
supposed to be dead.
- Brains!
- Ooh!
Lurggh! Blurggh!
It's never gonna work
if everyone looks happy.
Everybody stop smiling.
- Ms Davis!
- Uh, uh, urggh!
I can't believe I'm saying this,
but I see where he's coming from.
Are you serious?
- You can be
- What?
You can be kind of scary.
- I'm not scary.
- N
Walking home alone at night is scary.
You know what I mean.
What, so I'm supposed to be all
go with the flow!
- Whatever cool people do.
- Maybe.
Well, maybe you should go with the flow.
Are you kidding? I'm as flowy
as I've ever been right now!
- At least I'm trying.
- So am I!
What happened to us?
It seems we could tell
the future, and now
I just feel like sometimes
I want to fast-forward
and see what happens at the end.
Or rewind and start all over again.
- Maybe you can.
- Yeah, right.
He does keep looking over here.
Girl, my therapist would
be so happy with me.
I feel that this is visual gold.
Visual gold.
Should I tell them that no-one's
recording this right now?
So, what do you think about connection?
- Obviously, Talia's, like
- "They're clouds."
That is gross.
- Angie
- Mm-hm?
- Are you OK?
- Yeah.
I'm fine.
- Are you OK?
- No.
I'm shit.
This whole thing is shit,
pushing feelings down that
won't go away is shit.
I know.
You know, when I woke
up the next morning,
I felt like I jumped into
another version of my life.
But it isn't.
It's this version.
This is it.
I am the king.
I put it out there and it did manifest.
Finally got 20,000 subscribers, eh?
No. I don't need help manifesting that.
Me and Reema.
- Oh!
- Yeah.
- What happened?
- We had a moment.
Doing a group assignment?
Wow. You need to take
it a lot more serious.
- Uh-huh.
- I mean it.
Sort your shit out with Oly.
Oly doesn't even want to talk to me.
Then then find another way.
'Cause I'm not gonna have a sulk-fest
cock-blocking my life path
with my queen, alright?
I just touched Vince's hand.
What? What do you mean?
I just touched his hand.
With my hand. Like this.
Why did you do that?
I don't know, I just did.
- I thought you hated Vince.
- So did I.
What is going on?
I'm sorry, I know we
hate Santi right now,
and everyone Santi-adjacent.
No, no, that's not what I mean.
I like that. That's really cute.
So you think it's right
that I was mad at him?
- That I am mad at him?
- But you are right.
- He was a dick.
- Exactly.
But you need to go right now
because he's coming over here
and you look like you're about to cave.
Hi, this is Dom. Please leave a message.
Hey, Dad, it's me. Um, where are you?
Maybe we could meet up, um,
because I need to talk to you
about some stuff that is going on.
Um, I could meet you at home.
Or I can just come to
wherever you are. Bye.
- He's talking to her.
- Cazu, cazu, cazu.
Excuse me?
Excuse me, please!
What the actual fuck?!
- I thought the boat sank!
- Um, no.
This one's Birdie's boat.
Sorry, Birdie?
Oh, yeah, um
Oly, this is Birdie.
Um, Birdie, this is Oly, and
you've already met Jacinda.
Why have you already met Jacinda?
Is this what you've been
doing this whole time?
- No.
- Is this why you bought a boat?
- So that you could do this?
- No, this is not anything.
This is nothing.
No This is not what you think it is.
Oh, good!
Because it looks like you're
having some secret affair.
No, no, no, no, this is not an affair!
This is like a
This is like a, you know, thing
that people do.
Life's not simple, darling.
Oh, no shit, Dad!
That's actually why I
was trying to find you.
I'm sorry.
This is Reema. Leave a message.
Oh, my God!
Reems, I just went I just saw
Call me!
Actually, fuck it, where
are you? I'm coming over.
This is Lachie. You know what to do.
What's the matter?
- You were right.
- I was?
Go with the flow.
Yeah, no offence, but the
flow says you'd better go.
But also, thank you so
much for your wise counsel.
"Go with the flow." Did I even say that?
Why would I say something like that?
How about, "Upload the fuckin'
video you were meant to do
instead of going with
the flow all over my day?"
Oh, sorry, J.
Mummy's very upset. One
day you'll understand why.
Oh mamãe ♪
Eu quero ver ♪
O mar ♪
Eu quero ver ♪
O mar ♪
- Yemanya ♪

- No te conozco ♪
- Mum!
Aun así te amo, aun así ♪
- Mum!
- Yeah, what's happened?
Could you mind her?
Yes, of course, I would love to.
Has something happened?
No. Why?
Did something happen with you?
O mar ♪
- Mm.
- Ew!
- Ew, Mum, what's that?
- What?
Oh. Oh!
Weird. That's disgusting.
That's spaghetti from my lunch.
I just was asking because
Santi came by after school.
- Is that where you're going?
- Mum.
No te conozco aun así ♪
Te amo aun así ♪
So, I don't want to get married.
I don't exactly have positive
role models on that front.
- Mm-hm.
- And you very much fucked up.
And I don't like it that you did that,
but I also don't want to never
talk again like last time.
Neither do I.
And I'm really, really sorry, Oly.
I kinda just freaked out
when it looked like you
didn't want me anymore.
Wanna go for a walk?
We can talk about it.
Oh, and I do not want another baby.
Neither do I.
You know I'm not Mexican, right?
Actually, they say piñatas
originated in China.
That's racist.
I can't fuck a racist.
That's fair enough.
- Yeah.
- Yeah.
- There.
- OK.
I researched.
They're pretty full these days.
Did it feel different to last time?
We can test it out again if you want.
Why don't you stay over?
Have you forgotten about our baby?
- About this big.
- Mm.
- Needs these.
- Yeah, shit.
Well, we could just go grab
her, bring her back here.
We can all have a sleepover.
What's wrong?
I think you make me really happy.
