Cindy la Regia: The High School Years (2023) s01e07 Episode Script


These places in the city
offer patients financing.
[Lu] Yeah, it's not legal here.
I'd rather do it there.
In Mexico City.
We'll plan to do it over Easter break.
What are we going to tell your parents?
We told them we'd go
to Isla del Padre with Tere.
Cyn charge it,
keep it on and answer your messages.
- Mom, I will.
- I'm so nervous when you ignore me.
- [Cindy] I'm not ignoring you!
- [overlapping chatter]
- [Caro] It's late! Get in line.
- I say we wait for her.
- You have to check in.
- Come on.
- Baby, for God's sake!
- Bye!
- Bye!
- Don't talk to strangers.
- And take care of yourselves, girls.
- [girls] Bye.
- [Tere] Lu?
- [Cindy] Bye.
Oh, hey.
I didn't know you were joining us.
- Anyway, come on.
- [Cindy] Tere.
We're flying to the city.
- Mmm.
- Wait, why?
I, uh, I have to go.
- That's right.
- Yes, and they have to go because of me.
- They're helping me.
- Gotta go.
- Bye. We're sorry.
- Hey, wait a minute. What happened?
Um what happened was, um
Angie really wanted to see Irene.
[upbeat music playing]
Wait a minute. Like
- As in, they've made up then?
- [Lu] Cindy?
What? No!
It doesn't matter.
I'm sorry. We have to go.
- Bye.
- What the fuck, Cindy?
Hang on a second, please.
I wanna go.
- [Angie] Okay.
- [Lu] Fine. Let's go.
- Okay. Come on, then.
- Please, come on.
[lively music playing]
- Whoa!
- Sorry! I'm sorry!
- [music stops]
- [bus engine starts]
What the hell am I doing?
No. No, no. I can't. I'm sorry, I'm sorry.
I have to get off, call my mom,
tell her I got on a bus to Mexico City.
- Tere
- Happened so quickly.
I didn't think it through,
felt a little FOMO but I've processed it.
And I just can't. I hate lying, I hate it.
- My mom will kill me.
- Tere, chill.
Why not say
you didn't wanna go to the island?
You could've said so and that Angie wanted
to get back together with Irene.
- Let me explain things.
- I think it's best if I leave.
I get off, I go back
and you guys have fun.
I'm pregnant.
That's why we're going to Mexico City.
And I'm fine if you leave,
But if you stay,
you've got no place to judge.
[Tere] Okay.
But Lu, I would never judge you.
[bus engine rumbling]
[dramatic musical hit]
[dramatic musical hit]
[Lu] Cyn.
You would tell me
if I'm screwing up, right?
Are you sure this is what you want to do?
Then, Lu, you're not screwing up.
["Un Gran Circo"
by La Maldita Vecindad playing]
- [Angie] Welcome to Monster City.
- [blowing whistle]
Population: a fuckton.
[no audible dialogue]
Weather: surprise with a chance
of "go fuck yourself."
And buckle up,
because here, we have modern art,
quality public transportation,
entertainment and highbrow culture.
Also fine cuisine, yeah?
But the absolute,
most indisputably important thing we have
is excellence in sports, uh-huh.
Next stop: my dearest treasure,
Coapita, the beautiful.
Damn, girls.
I missed all this so much, dude.
It's my city, you know?
[music continues over radio]
[door opens]
From Monterrey, to the world! [chuckling]
- Hi, there.
- [all] Hello.
- So did you miss me a little?
- 'Course I did.
- Of course.
- A lot.
Between you and I,
the provincial life is so damn boring.
- Ha ha ha!
- [both laugh]
All right.
- All right then.
- Come on in. [chuckles]
- Thank you.
- Make yourselves at home.
- Your mom here?
- Nah, she's on Easter holiday.
Monterrey is not provincial, at all.
[Angie] Umm, yes it is, dude.
All right, well, there's room for three
here, and two can take the sofa bed.
Okay, so then Lu,
Tere and I can stay here;
and you two can take the sofa bed.
- No!
- [upbeat music playing]
We can't take your bed
and make you use the sofa.
Because that'd be very rude, right?
I don't mind.
- [Angie sighs]
- [Lu] Okay, then.
Irene and Angie stay here,
and we stay downstairs.
No, you have to sleep here with Cindy
because you need to get your rest.
Yes. Okay. You two stay here
and the three of us downstairs.
Well, good night.
Thank you.
[music stops]
Don't let the bed bugs bite.
[both chuckling]
That sucks.
Excuse me.
[Tere groans]
Oh. Sorry.
[upbeat music playing]
Dear God, I kindly ask you
to take care of Lucía
and that you don't let
anything bad happen to her.
Because I love my friend,
and I know you love her too.
Oh, and thank you, Angie,
for coordinating the whole thing.
And thank you, Irene,
her friend,
- for welcoming us into her home.
- [sighs faintly]
- Amen.
- Uh, Amen.
Uh, amen.
- [Tere] Sleep tight.
- [music stops]
[whispering] You've got clammy hands.
[chuckling] You do too.
[Tere and Angie chuckle]
[deep breathing]
Cyn, I'm scared.
What happens if
If everyone finds out
and I become the "abortion girl"?
What if this defines me for the rest
of my life and I can't ever be me again?
That won't happen to you, Lu.
How am I gonna feel, you know?
I'm sorry that I ever hurt you, Cyn.
Let's go to sleep.
[whispering] Okay.
[cell phone dings and vibrates]
[quiet, suspenseful music playing]
[sentimental music playing]
Hi, Mama.
My love?
How are you?
- Are you You all right?
- Yes.
- You okay? What are you doing here?
- Yeah. We're perfect. We're fine.
Hey, Auntie.
[music stops abruptly]
What happened?
[Angie] Well, you know that the people
in San Pedro are very conservative, right?
I mean, like,
they don't even talk about sex.
They act as though
it pretty much doesn't exist.
And also, over there,
they penalized abortion. Not here, though.
- And since we're minors
- Oh, no.
[Angie]well, I wanted to know if
Well, but hang on. No, wait a minute. You
Weren't you into girls?
What? Mom.
Of course I'm into girls.
- What's going on then?
- I'm not the one who's pregnant.
- [Cindy] Me?
- You told your parents?
- [Angie chuckles]
- No.
- No, no, no, no, Auntie!
- [overlapping chatter]
- No. No, no.
- Well, here's the thing
I can't believe this. You have no idea
[overlapping chatter continues]
Enough, enough! It's about me.
[tense music playing]
[music stops]
I'm pregnant, and I need your help.
Mmm, quesadillas without cheese, dude,
- taking them to the grave, Tere.
- [cell phone vibrating]
- Mommy?
- [woman] Hello, honey, how are you?
How are things on the island?
Is it very crowded?
Yes, Mom,
we are having a great time, we are
I assume she knows
that you're in love with her.
I'm I'm not in love with her.
You are.
But she's in deep too.
Although [chuckling]
I can tell she has no idea.
[quiet, contemplative music playing]
But it's fine. Don't worry about it.
'Cause I'm already very much over you.
[both chuckle]
[Angie] Come here.
[music stops]
I love you.
Love you.
[woman] Cantú, Lucía?
[Mom] Yes.
- Doctor, good afternoon.
- Hello, nice to meet you. Afternoon.
[woman] Shall we?
Stay strong.
Right this way, please.
This hasn't been very easy for you, huh?
The whole abortion thing?
I guess.
I imagine that this could happen to me,
and it could happen to Cindy, or you or
I mean, probably not to me, Tere.
[both chuckle]
[quiet, contemplative music playing]
Could be pretty, uh
for it to happen to you, no?
When was the last time you liked a boy?
- At the last party in the ninth grade
- Mmm.
I had to, you know, kiss a dude.
That wasn't my question.
- [cell phone vibrates]
- One minute. [sniffs]
It's Cindy.
[music stops]
What's happening?
[Cindy] We're done.
It went very well. Come meet us.
We'll be right there.
Oh, Chuy, what can I tell ya? These girls.
They just came to be naughty
and didn't tell anyone.
But they're fine, they're with me.
They had dinner already.
I'm going to send them back
on the first flight tomorrow.
Tell Caro I said hi, okay?
Kisses, brother. I love you.
[Cindy] How are you feeling?
- [Lu] Good.
- [Cindy] Nice.
- Do you want to do something later?
- [Angie sighs]
You didn't have to snitch on us.
I just told them you're here
and that you're fine.
Come here, sit down.
You know, you seem a lot calmer.
More than when you kicked me out, no?
- I never kicked you out of the house.
- [scoffs]
M Mom, of course you did.
- Like, you simply couldn't deal with me.
- No!
All I knew was if you and I
kept acting that way,
we would be doomed forever, Angie.
- Sometimes mothers do things that childr
- You chose him over your daughter.
Just because I made your ex feel odd.
Don't say that ever again.
I did it because I thought
a change in scenery was best for you.
Nothing is more important to me
in this world than you, Angelica.
- [sentimental music playing]
- I miss you.
I miss you so much.
I miss you too, Mama.
A little bit.
[both chuckle]
I want you to know
that I talked to your uncle,
and I said I want you back.
Only if you want.
Maybe when the year's over?
[music fades out]
- Hmm. Well, I'll think about it.
- Yeah?
- [chuckles]
- Okay.
- Come here.
- [chuckles]
How are you feeling?
I only have a little cramping.
But other than that,
I'm the same as always.
Do you think I should tell Max?
It's your prerogative.
You decide who you let inside
and who you don't.
You look like you haven't slept in ages.
Something happen?
[Cindy breathing deeply]
I can't stop thinking that
I can't help but think it was my fault.
[quiet, contemplative music playing]
I don't know, b bec
I may've sent the wrong signal.
Just please don't tell anyone.
- No.
- Okay?
On the last school trip
[Lu] Mm-hm?
Professor Esteban kissed me.
[moody, slow, pop music playing]
Somebody has to hear this.
And I'll go with you.
Lu, I don't want to say anything.
[man over speaker] Okay folks, welcome
to Monterrey International Airport.
[Cindy] You can't tell anyone,
not even Max.
[Lu] Don't worry,
Max doesn't know anything.
[Cindy] I was already the brunt
of the joke 'cause of that photo.
If I say anything now, I'll not
only be the girl with the nudes,
I'll also be the girl
that kissed the teacher.
No one will believe me.
- [music stops]
- [school bell ringing]
Cindy, it wasn't my intention
for us to stop speaking to each other
in these final days of school.
It wasn't mine either.
I wish things between us stayed the same.
I'm sorry for what happened.
It's fine.
And it was for the best.
Thank you for
staying honest.
[school bell ringing]
[ringing stops]
- [honking horn]
- Cindy!
Get in! Ready?
[starts engine]
[Cindy] Brenda, what are we doing here?
What are you guys doing here?
You guys Wait, what's going on?
- Lucía told us everything.
- [Angie] Yes, everything, dude.
- [Lu] A while ago.
- What?
We aren't going to abandon you, Cindy.
- Yeah, Cyn, we're here for you.
- [Lu] Exactly.
But, it doesn't matter, okay?
I'm over it. It's nothing.
It doesn't matter. I feel fine.
Cyn, that's not true.
There's no way
we're gonna sit back and do nothing, okay?
[Brenda] What he did is very serious.
- Don't minimize it.
- Yeah.
- [Tere] It wasn't your fault, Cyn.
- [Brenda] He's a teacher.
He has no business
staying in school if it bothers you.
- [Lu] Plus, it could keep happening.
- [Angie] Damn right. He needs to go.
[Cindy] So what do I do?
It's not that easy, okay?
I can't be the nudes girl and the one who
kisses a teacher. Nobody will believe me!
- Talk to the principal.
- Exactly.
Tell her what happened.
Cindy, you know we'll always be here.
- All of us.
- [Tere] Yes.
- [Brenda] We love you.
- [Tere] We love you so much.
[woman] Okay, Cindy, this is an
extremely serious accusation,
so we have to be very cautious.
Very cautious?
This will put you in
an extremely vulnerable position.
And I would love to tell you otherwise,
but it won't be easy.
Are you sure that you want to do this?
["Lo Efímero" by Nubes playing]
[inhaling deeply]
Yes, that is what I want.
And I don't want him at graduation.
He makes me feel very uncomfortable.
I promise
that I will do everything in my power
to resolve this issue ahead of graduation.
All right?
[vocals in Spanish]
[Cindy] Babe, I can't believe
I'm gonna lose you,
and I don't know how
I will survive without you.
It's almost like "San" without "Pedro".
[both chuckle]
Well then, come with me.
You could be the "City" to my "Mex".
[music continues]
I don't think it would be
a good idea to run away again.
Well, a least a quick vacation, seriously.
- We'll see if maybe they allow it.
- [chuckles]
Fingers crossed.
Fingers crossed.
[both chuckle]
Hope to see you soon, Cuz.
You flipped my life
completely upside down.
And you mine.
A shit ton.
Come here.
[music continues]
[breathing deeply]
Enough! Enough! Enough! Don't cry, dude.
[both chuckle]
Stop! Let's put aside
this telenovela for later.
Go on, I'll catch up.
Your parents are waiting for you. Go on.
Better get going 'cause you look pretty.
Um, but first
- Yup. Yes. Yup.
- You gotta be kidding.
Fucking selfies.
- [camera shutter click]
- [both chuckle]
[music continues]
Cindy Garza for president!
- [Caro] Uh!
- [Chuy] What?
Will you stop? Don't be so tacky, honey!
- [Chuy] What's the matter?
- Hey, wait! Cyn, my love!
Hurry, my love! Let's go!
[music continues]
[music fades out]
[Tere singing in Spanish]
It's going to take me a few days ♪
To recover from you ♪
It'll take verses, melodies ♪
To be able to say "yes" again ♪
That for you I'd travel north ♪
That for you I'd travel south ♪
That I'm fine without a destination ♪
As long as on the way ♪
Oh ohhhhh ♪
There's you ♪
There's always you ♪
Don't leave.
I'm sorry for what I said
the other day, okay?
I just Look, before you ever got here,
I used to see everything, like
Almost like a movie. You know?
[chuckles and sighs]
The point is that, I think
that I'm gonna hate myself forever
if I don't
[faint, contemplative music playing]
[music plays more loudly]
[both chuckle]
[woman over speaker] San Pedro High School
warmly welcomes you today.
[music continues]
We invite you to take your seats,
and remind you that smoking
is prohibited by official regulation.
This is the second call.
Second call.
[music fades out]
- Hi, Cindy! Ready for your speech?
- Hi.
- Yes.
- Perfect.
[ominous music playing]
Why is he here?
[woman clears throat]
Uh, this is a bit more complicated
than it appears, yes.
But you promised.
I know. It's a whole process.
- But
- But, um
Yeah, let's talk about It
after graduation.
Why not now?
I can't right now, Cindy.
We will talk about it.

I want to introduce to you

Regina Villarreal Solorzano.
[both giggle]
[Esteban] Cynthia?
[tense music playing]
I feel like we could've avoided
this misunderstanding, don't you think?
[moody, contemplative music playing]
I feel like
you kinda exaggerated the truth.
[woman continues speaking
over loudspeaker]
[woman] Thank you very much.
[audience applauding and cheering]
And now, the moment
you've been waiting for all morning.
We will introduce the most academically
distinguished first-year student.

["Fuego" by Bomba Estereo playing]
Wait, Cindy, hold on! What the fuck, man?

are in the car, dude.
