Bump (2021) s03e07 Episode Script

The Owl and the Pussycat

Can you not?
Not what?
(LAUGHS) How old are you?
Out of it!
Oh, can you help me? Can you put
- something in that?
I never said I didn't like it.
I just said it was kind of bleak.
And your point is?
Bleakness is the reason
for the film, darling.
That's why it exists.
Yeah, yeah, look,
I understand it's an important
piece of cinema for you, man,
but, like, the reality is it's
actually kind of problematic.
Oh, Boz, everything's problematic
if you want it to be problematic.
It's problematic.
Can't we just enjoy
each other as a family?
Ahhh! Haaaaa!
Ha-ha. Beginner's luck.
Oh, my God. Oh, my God.
Oh! Oh, God! Ahh!
EDITH: OK, so that just happened.
ANGIE: This is this is bad.
EDITH: Yep. Yep. Let's not minimise it.
I can't just run away.
We we've gotta go back.
We can't. We can't ever go back.
No. No.
Sell the house, move in here.
This undoes every good
thing I have ever done.
I am now officially the
world's worst mother.
Yeah, well, you know, I'm
the world's worst aunt.
And sister. And baker.
- I'll text them.
- What, and say what?
I don't know. Sorry?
Or some fun emojis?
- No. No, you're right.
- I know.
I think we just pretend
this never happened
and we never talk about it again.
Yes. Good plan.
I mean, at the end of the day,
we're adults, they're adults.
It's my kitchen, it's my house.
If they're gonna sneak around
unannounced, then it's on them.
Yeah. And maybe, in a way, this is good.
Well, now we don't have
to tell them about us.
Yeah, I mean, that would
have been really awkward.
ARIEL: I'm not gaslighting you.
I'm just saying that right
now, you are being ridiculous.
TALIA: What, so now I'm
crazy AND ridiculous?
ARIEL: Oh! And you're walking away.
Yeah, of course you are.
Hey, are you busy?
No, I was just, um (CLEARS THROAT)
What's going on?
Ariel and I had a fight.
Really? Oh, no.
She's not wanting to
go back to work. Ever.
She wants to focus on motherhood.
Yeah, that's good, isn't it?
Well, I want to focus on motherhood too.
I'm also a parent, aren't I?
Yeah. Yeah, for sure.
So, what, we have to go to
work and pay for everything
while she gets to stay home
and hang out with the baby?
I'm sure it'll be fine.
Wait, did you say we, like you and me?
Yeah. Yeah.
And and if this is
what she's like now,
what's it gonna be like once it's here?
But I thought I was just
the sperm donor, aren't I?
Sometimes I just wanna
run away, you know?
But you probably shouldn't
because babies are hard work.
But I know you two can handle it.
I know you can.
We can?
Talia and Ariel.
- Mmm.
What a team. What a team of two.
Thanks, Vince.
I know.
The school told me.
They filled out an incident report.
It's more complicated
than that. It was
Yes, Ita, that's right.
Look, I've spoken to J.
I've told her she can't be so rough
and the teachers will watch them.
OK, Ita.
It's gonna be fine.
Here you go, Dad.
I didn't have any whisky
so I made you a Milo.
Hey, how about how
about we put on some tunes?
Hey, what'll it be? The Cure?
Joy Division? The Regurgitators?
Should we order food? Let's have food.
- Yeah.
- Not hungry.
Oh, yes, you are.
We were there to have dinner.
So let's have some dinner.
What shall we have? A pizza?
- How's J?
- Oh, she's so great.
She did something so
funny the other day.
- Surely.
- Yeah, yeah.
- It's it's a great age.
- Yeah, it is.
Shall we play chess?
Yeah. Yeah, chess. Hey?
I had no idea she was bi.
Everyone's bi.
I would actually really
love to hear about
the genesis of Radiohead's
album 'OK Computer'.
BOWIE: I didn't want to tell you this,
but this is my fault.
Mum had a dream about a human-sized bird
and I told her that she
should open the cage door
and spread her wings.
How was I to know that that
my truth would be this powerful?
What I'm realising is that
I've got too much jing stored inside me.
Jing's like life force.
I really need to rethink
this whole celibacy thing.
OK, Bowie, I think that's
more something that you think
rather than something
that you verbalise.
I think I'm gonna need
something stronger than Milo.
Stay calm, don't panic.
Demon family at 10 o'clock.
Oh, God.
- Where's the teen mum?
- They broke up, remember?
Of course they did. No wonder
the daughter's a bad seed.
Now, remember what we said, sweetie.
If anyone plays too rough with you,
you go straight to the teacher
and you say, "Jacinda hit me."
- Please don't kill our child.
- Hi, Gracie.
- Bye, Gracie.
Oh, God, is the muscly
child gonna stab us now?
KARL: It's the old woman I fear.
Something very witchy going on there.
- Hello.
- Hi. Yeah.
Your daughter is a violent delinquent.
See you at the court case.
But luckily, the titanium
screws in his elbow
were linked to this small
Russian medical manufacturer
and that's how they linked
the corpse to the crime.
Yeah, right. How did you know him?
I didn't know him,
doofus. It's a podcast.
I'm talking directly into your
ear. How can you not hear me?
I'm sorry. I'm just
There's stuff going on at home.
Ooh. Dish.
- Trouble with your throuple?
- We're not a throuple.
Stop moving, keep talking.
Talia's freaking out
because Ariel doesn't wanna
go back to work.
- Ever?
- Yeah.
So is the baby gonna get a job or
It's serious.
Talia was talking about me
helping out, like, financially.
You're just the donor.
Yeah, that's what I thought.
Well, what have you
all agreed will happen?
OK, I'm no longer speaking
to you as a friend.
I'm speaking to you as someone
with two years of a UK law degree.
- Are you nuts?
- Objection.
Vince, I've read a million articles
about this kind of thing going wrong.
What you guys are doing is complicated.
Without some kind of mutually
agreed-upon framework,
you have no legal recourse.
Nah, we'll be fine. They're my friends.
That's that's great.
But whose kid is it?
Who's gonna pay for it?
What happens if Talia
and Ariel split up?
The donor can get frozen out,
Vince, and never see the child.
Am I the first person
you've spoken to about this?
What does your mum think?
No. Y you still haven't told her?
See how gentle I'm being with Rory?
Rory likes it when people
are gentle and respectful.
That's how we should be
with each other when we play.
Right, girls?
- Can I hold him?
- Only Ms Young holds Rory.
Let's put him back. I think
Rory might be a bit sleepy.
Bye-bye, Gracie. Bye-bye, Jacinda.
OK, take your hands away.
- Perfect.
- Yeah.
Welcome to your new
home, my little darlings.
So, um, Mum, do you know
Ariel who I live with?
- Yes. Brown hair.
- No, that's Talia.
Oh. Yeah, I know Ariel.
Yeah. Um she's pregnant.
Oh, how wonderful.
- I thought she was a lesbian.
- She is.
- She is.
- Well, good for her.
They're gonna have to move out.
Your place isn't big
enough for a family.
VINCE: Yeah, that's the thing.
I'm sort of part of their family now.
Well, of course. Friends are important.
- But when a baby comes
- No, because I'm the dad.
Not not the dad, the donor.
They wanted to have a baby.
Asked me if I could help, so I did.
You're having a baby with Ariel?
No, Ariel and Talia are having the baby.
I just, um I just
gave them some sperm.
Are you gonna get married?
- To Ariel?
- Well
No. Ariel and Talia are the couple, Mum.
I'm just their friend.
Am I gonna be the grandmother?
Oh. I don't know.
Are you okay?
Do you know what you're doing?
I do.
We do.
A baby?
Hello, Rory, let's have a cuddle.
Have you got him?
Yep. I'm good with animals. See?
- JACINDA: Catch him!
- Rory!
JACINDA: Catch him!
I have to go.
What's wrong?
Here you go, Gracie. All dry.
W what are you looking for?
Nothing. Everything's fine.
Oly. Hi.
OLY: Hi.
Bowie, you're here too.
Is your dad here by any chance?
DOM: No.
Do you mind if I have a word with him?
Of course. Come in.
Listen, guys, I just wanted to say
- We were just on our way out
- Oh.
Yeah, we've got a thing.
- Oh.
- Bowie.
Dad's just in there.
- Bye.
- Bye.
I just wanted to say,
I'm not angry.
I do have anger.
Not for you, but it does,
um stem from your actions.
I wanted to talk about that.
I'm gonna forgive you, Edith.
Oh, good. I'm glad.
- But not today.
- Right.
What you doing?
Are you going to turn
this into a massive deal?
That's a strong opener.
It just happened.
- Again.
- Again?
Don't pretend you don't remember.
- Mmm?
- Belinda Scott-Bevan.
Belinda Scott-Bevan? From high school?
Oh, come on, mate,
she was obviously gay.
Not until you got your hands on her.
- You knew I liked her.
- Oh.
Look, you and Angie aren't
even together anymore, you know?
Don't conflate your anger at Angie
I'm not conflating anything.
I didn't plan this, OK?
I mean, I I wanted it
but I never, ever thought it
would happen but it did and
and I don't know what
the fuck is happening but
You know, I'm I'm sorry.
And Belinda Scott-Bevan
was a competitive axe thrower.
You know, it's not my fault
if you can't read the signs.
And, fuck it, you know, this
actually isn't about you.
You're my sister.
Angie's my ex.
The mother of my children.
And what the two of you are
conducting is borderline incest.
And if you can't see
how that impacts me,
then you're a sociopath.
Dom, come on, we we need
to talk about this properly.
Do we?
What's the point?
You're just gonna tell me
all the ways that I'm wrong.
JACK RIVER: To be by your side ♪
She's walking up to you ♪
She's dying to be ♪
- (SINGS) B ♪
What's going on?
I need to keep my cortisol
levels low for the baby,
so I'm just releasing some
dopamine into my bloodstream.
Fair. Fair.
Um, can I talk to you for a second?
- Yeah.
- Is Talia here?
Talia, are you here as well?
What's up?
Um, well, I thought
it would be a good idea
if us three have a low-key
chat about everything.
Good idea.
- Sure thing.
- Cool.
Um, I didn't really
think about it before,
but what we're doing is epic.
Yeah. It is.
It's huge.
It's really cool.
But whether we want them to or not,
thing are going to change.
- So, firstly
- I'm not going back to work.
Oh, my God.
It makes me unhappy, Talia,
and that makes the baby unhappy.
- Is that what you want?
- Of course not.
But we all have to make compromises.
- No, not about this, we don't.
- Yes, we do.
OK, can we take a
ARIEL: I am not going to apologise
for wanting the best for my child.
- YOUR child?
- Hey, OK.
Look, this is what I mean.
This is exactly what I mean.
- Everyone has their concerns.
- No, no.
We are in this together, Ariel.
You don't get to make
unilateral decisions.
- Stop talking to me like that!
- Like what? Truthfully?
No, zzzz, aggressively.
- OK.
- Wow!
OK, can we keep everything chill?
You know that I can't get stressed out
and you are deliberately
stressing me out!
Cool. Hey, how about I
never speak to you again?
Do you know what? That
would actually be great.
- Fine.
- Fine.
JACK RIVER: Be by your side ♪
Fool's gold ♪
- SANTI: Hello, puchita!
- SANTI: Mmm.
- Beautiful.
- Do you wanna say hi to Ita?
BERNADITA: Hello, beautiful.
Hey, do you want to go
play there with Maddie?
(GASPS) Yeah!
It's Gracie's dads. Just
let me do the talking.
- SANTI: Hey.
- Hi.
I'm Austin. This is
Karl. We're Gracie's dads.
I know.
- I'm Bernardita.
- Santi.
is kind of delicate.
Yeah, look, I've been
planning to talk to you guys.
About how our kids attacked each other?
This isn't about that.
Something happened with Gracie today
which I am not allowed to talk about.
It's a "cross my heart
and hope to die" situation.
- You understand?
- Uh-huh.
What I can say is
our daughter really
needed a friend today
and your Jacinda stepped up.
Gracie's so grateful. And so are we.
I feel like we might have
misjudged their friendship.
Maybe we could organise
a play date for them?
J could come to our place one weekend?
Or Gracie can come to our place.
Yeah, absolutely.
SANTI: Awesome.
Should we, um Want
to eat on the couch?
- I just want to say that
- No need.
Uh, look, I don't want to talk
about it either. And we won't.
Ever again.
But, um, I do want you both to know
that this thing with Edith,
it it's a good thing.
You know, obviously I didn't,
um, want you to find
out the way you did.
Um, but, to be honest, I
don't know what's happening.
But what I do know is that I'm
I don't know.
So, um, that's it. The end.
We are happy too.
Happiness is one of the many feelings
that we're grappling with right now.
You don't have to
justify yourself to us.
You've opened the cage door,
you're flapping your wings,
you've tapped into the divine feminine.
How is that not awesome?
Yeah, it is awesome.
How's your dad?
He's not great.
Yeah, you'd think he'd be
used to your sexcapades by now.
It's the second time?
Mmm, third.
- Third?
- Yep.
OK, I've decided that I want to
be a part of this baby's life.
And I also want to have
a say in its future.
We can fight as much as we like,
but we all know that the baby
is the most important thing.
I think the best way forward
is if we all see a lawyer,
set some ground rules
that we can all agree on.
Are these gluten-free?
Of course.
I've thought about it and I don't care.
- Huh?
- (LOUDLY) I don't care!
Love is rare and we're all gonna die,
so I want you to know
I'm happy for you both.
Do you mean that? Because
you're kind of screaming.
Doesn't matter what I think.
It doesn't matter what
Oly and Bowie thinks.
If Angie is what you want,
then you should go for it 100%.
Fuck the consequences.
OK. Wow! Well, um, thanks.
See ya!
- (GASPS) Hey.
- Hey.
Come in.
I can't.
God, I love you, Angie.
I love you too.
I've always loved you.
You know that, yeah?
That's that's great, isn't it?
What's happened?
Um, nothing, but, um
I don't think I can do this.
Of course you can.
I can't. I can't.
I want to - very much
- but, um I can't.
(SIGHS) I, um
I can't risk everything for this.
There's Dom, there's there's Oly,
Edith, you're catastrophising.
This has just started.
Not for me, you know? Not for me.
This has been going on a very long time.
Stop. Just breathe. Come in.
And come on, come in,
we'll talk about it.
Sweetie, I can't come in. I'll kiss you.
I want you to kiss me.
Please don't make this hard.
What? That's it?
Yeah, that's it. I'm I'm sorry.
I'm sorry, Angie.
