Cindy la Regia: The High School Years (2023) s01e05 Episode Script


[Latin dance music playing]
[Cindy] I always believed in soulmates.
That there's no greater happiness
than finding your other half.
And for a really long time
I thought Max was mine.
I was so wrong.
- Dude, I can't believe they let us in.
- Seriously!
[both giggling]
- That one's pretty.
- [giggling]
Gonna post it.
[dance music playing faintly]
What if he's not into me?
Look at yourself.
How could he not be, Cindy?
- Hmm?
- [giggling]
he just liked your story.
- [giggling]
- Okay, can we go now?
[both giggling]

[music plays faintly]
[music stops]
- [knocking]
- [Brenda] Are you all right?
We're the "Bohr Egos!"
- Not "Borregos!"
- No!
We don't assume it!
We ask questions.
Without paradox, we win the most.
Bohr Egos!
- [boy 1] Yes.
- [boy 2] Yay.
Well, as you may have noticed
from our reach on socials,
popularity, and our very appealing
physiques and all
- Ahhhh.
- [boy] You know it.
we are the famous Physics Squad!
- Yay!
- Woo-hoo!
If you want to join,
we're accepting applications,
for anyone who'd like to become
the newest member of the Bohr Egos.
Bohr Egos with an H 'cause of Niels Bohr.
- [giggling]
- [person coughing]
- [boy 1] Why is that funny?
- [boy 2] So lame.
Listen, guys,
the Physics Squad is the club
with the most prestige around here.
- And besides, it's coached by yours truly.
- [boy] Hm.
Our selection process includes putting
candidates through some tests we pick out.
- But no one has signed up yet.
- Shhh.
- These preliminary tests are hard
- Who wants to join?
- I'll do it!
- Do you want to take the test, Cynthia?
- Yes.
- Okay.
- [Juancho] Excellent!
- Great! That's right!
- That's the true spirit, of Bohr Egos!
- Yay.
[Esteban] Thank you.
- You're welcome. Good luck!
- [Esteban] Thanks guys.
Yeah, thanks.

Cellphones are prohibited.

- [person laughs]
[whispering] For Lu.
[boy] Lu.
[whimsical music playing]
[Max] Did you really block me?
[whispering] Tere?
[whispering] Brenda?
- For Tere.
- Okay.
Yo, Tere. From Angie.
[boy yawns]
[Angie] Yeah, everything's all right.
[Tere] For Angie.
[Tere] Well, it doesn't seem like it.
- [Tere] Hey.
- [boy chuckling]
- For Lu. Hey!
- Huh? Oh, yes.
- For Max.
- Oh.
Max, take it. There.
[Lu] Max, stop!
[music becomes more lively]
[Tere] Reminder, talent show!
[Angie] Tere!
[students chuckling
and chattering quietly]
[Angie] What does it look like then?
- [girl chuckles]
- [Tere] For Angie.
And this one's for Lu.
I said silent reading!
[lively music continues]
[Max] It seems like you're angry
because I want to be a nun?
[Brenda] From Tere.
[Tere] No, I can't do this
on my own. I need you!
[music stops]
[chuckles faintly]
[music resumes]
[girl] Boyfriend-stealing slut!
- [boy] Home-wrecking slut!
- [laughter]
- [boy] Boyfriend stealer.
- [girl] Whore.
[music fades out]
[school bell ringing]
[ringing stops]
Can we talk?
Cyn! Wait, please!
Stop, Max.
Cyn, I wanna explain what happened.
- I never wanted to hurt you-
- [boy] Yeah, player!
- You're one short of being a poker master!
- Poker has four suits, asshole!
- Four, for real?
- So it's four?
- Where's Lu's nudes?
- What you say, motherfucker?
- Say it to my face, okay?
- Max!
- What's your problem?
- Max!
Let's get outta here.
[boys chuckle]
[sighs] Dammit.
Don't speak to me.
[contemplative pop music playing]
[Lu] Cindy?
[lyrics in Spanish]
Turn around.
Lu, it's really big.
Problem solved.
- You don't think it's gross?
- Use it, clean it and give it back.
[both giggle]
- Done?
- Yeah.
[both chuckle]
- Aww.
- Love you.
- Ready?
- Yep.
- Mm-hm.
- [both giggle]
Let's go.
[music stops]
Hey, my love. Can't sleep either?
[Chuy] Mmm.
Oh, what's this?
[both chuckling]
Hey, Daddy?
How were you positive that when
you met Mom, she was your soulmate?
Oh, Cindy.
- From the first time I saw her.
- [contemplative guitar music playing]
The moment I saw those eyes, I said,
"Those eyes are mine for all eternity,
and my eternity's at least 80 years."
You think that
I might also find my soulmate someday?
Of course, my love.
You're enchanting.
They'd have to be blind or soft
in the head not to see that, sweetie. Mmm?
- [kiss]
- [giggles]
Thanks, Daddy.

[chuckles] Hello.
- Okay.
- [clears throat]
Sit down.
Look, I know it's hard
to come out and be vulnerable.
And that this might be confusing
and overwhelming.
But I want you to know
that you're not alone.
It's normal to be scared and that's why
I'll be here with you when you do it.
Thanks, Angie.
To be honest, it is a very big step
for me because, well,
[inhaling deeply]
I've tried to fight
my whole life against it,
and, I mean, doing it
in front of everyone's just
You'll do it in front of everyone?
What are we talking about?
- Uh, telling everyone you're
- Singing.
[quiet, contemplative music playing]
You thought this was about
going on stage to sing?
[chuckling] I mean, what else
could you wanna discuss?
[chuckling] God, I'm an idiot.
Wait, so all of this is just
your fucking talent show bullshit?
A true friend would never judge
me for that, or for my calling.
I might not wanna be your friend.
[music stops]
Good luck with your stage fright
on the show.
[inhales deeply]
[breathing deeply]
[Juancho] Rumor is,
you're first choice for the club.
How's the test coming along?
Still working on it.
[both chuckle]
- May I?
- Yeah, sure.
Mm. You're forgetting
the coefficient of friction formula.
I mean, I would never,
never, ever forget
the coefficient of friction formula.
- Okay.
- Good luck.
[receding footsteps]
Cuz, so,
if, hypothetically speaking,
you coincidentally met the most
awesome girl in the world
but that person
just wants to be your friend,
how would you get them
to change their mind?
I wouldn't try to change their mind.
If this person is like, so awesome then,
I would do anything
for them to stay in my life.
Even just as a friend.
Hypothetically speaking, of course,
does her name begin with a "T"?
Are you crazy?
This isn't a soap opera! Of course not!
[school bell ringing]
Guys, don't forget
to do your homework, pages five to ten.
[ringing stops]
[bag zipper zipping]
I'm, sorry.
Did uh Did you receive my answers
for my Physics Club test?
I'm sorry, for the club? Uh
Ah, yeah.
I checked your answers this morning.
It's quite hard to get in on your first
try, especially in your first year.
I'm really sorry.
You're gonna have
to set aside your social life.
The club requires a lot
of effort and compromise.
We've been undefeated
for many, many years.
- [suspenseful music playing]
- I'm sorry?
Welcome to the Bohr Egos.
- OMG! Are you sure?
- Yes.
- [chuckling]
- [squeals] Thank you!
- I'll need your info
- [quiet, contemplative music playing]
well, to coordinate
schedules and a few other things.
Insta work fine?
Cellphone, better.
I got socials, but I barely use them.
- Oh, really?
- Yeah.
Is this your Insta?
Oh, I'm sorry, force of habit.
No, it's fine. I don't use it ever.
- Congratulations.
- Thanks a lot!
[music becomes move lively]
[music fades out]
Are you gonna see Tere at the talent show?
Don't know.
It's important that we're there for her.
We can do that for her.
- Cyn, I'm sorry
- No, we don't have to sit together, okay?
Or speak.
[tense music playing]
[music intensifies]
- [music ends abruptly]
- [people cheering and clapping]
[woman] This evening,
our very talented
and dedicated young students
are here to delight us
with their performances.
Let's give them a hand!
[Regina] Everyone always says I'm perfect.
[girls] So perfect.
[playing badly]
I didn't come here
to put on a show or sing or anything.
I'm here to tell you about things
that are way more important.
Can anyone tell me, how many tons
of PET are generated in this school alone?
- And I'll always accomplish my goals.
- [girls] My goals.
- [people gasp]
- [Regina] But nobody ever asks,
"How are you, Regina?"
- "Does this responsibility affect you?"
- [ringing and glass shattering]
[girls] Affect you. [snapping fingers]
Tere, your turn.
[audience becomes quiet]
[audience applauds]
- [person coughs]
- [audience muttering]
- Come on, Tere! You can do it!
- We love you!
- [people] Come on, Tere!
- [running footsteps]
[whispering] Tere.
["El Invento" by José González playing]
- Tere!
- [tapping glass]
Come on girl.

[song ends]
[cheering and applause]
Thank you.
[cheering and applause continues]
[both laugh]
[Angie] Amazing.
Tere, you becoming a nun,
Isn't my concern now or in ten years.
I just know I wanna be in your life.
Please forgive me,
Tere Treviño.
Wanna be friends?
[giggling] We've been friends
the whole time, Angie.
I guess Well, yeah, right.
[both chuckling]
[Tere breathes deeply and sighs]
Pardon me.
Lu, we should speak.
[Cindy] Ten seconds of truth.
How about you start?
[breathing deeply]
I don't want to be queen of the casino.
I'm completely indifferent to school,
I'm not interested
in any advanced classes.
I hate the fact
that you're always so romantic
and you spend all this time
talking to me about "the one".
Your soulmate and all that stuff.
I never imagined this would happen at all
or anyone would make me feel like this.
And I hate that I feel for Max.
Because feeling that way
made me lose my best friend.
[Cindy sighs]
My turn. [chuckles and sniffs]
The day I saw you making out with Max,
was the day I had planned
on breaking up with him.
I love you.
Love you more.
But I really, truly don't know how
to stop feeling all this anger.
- And
- [shudders]
it makes it hard to forgive you.
But why?
Because, Lu
you are my soulmate.
["El Invento" by José González playing]
And you broke my heart in two.
And there really is
[Spanish vocals]
no way for you to mend that.
