Gossip Girl: Acapulco (2013) s01e09 Episode Script

El padre Harold

Want me to wash your back?
Vanessa, why are you here?
What do you mean, why am I here?
Don't be stupid. What about yesterday?
Yesterday was a mistake. Get out, please.
It takes two to kiss. I didn't make you.
I know, but it was a mistake. Get out.
Whoops! Dropped the soap.
Don't even think about picking that up.
Daniel! How much longer will you be?
Shhh, don't say anything.
I'm almost out, Jen. Calm down.
You take longer than a girl, Daniel.
So I'll wash your back.
Are you embarrassed or something?
In the beautiful port of Aca, tomorrow doesn't count. All we have is here and now.
A mansion full of rich kids drinking irresponsibly? Nothing new. Until things spiral out of control.
No! Not at all.
I barely see you anymore, and you're not answering my texts.
What texts? I don't remember any.
Well, do you remember the other night, when you and I -
Yes, yes. I remember that. Don't be an idiot.
What are you doing?
There's a lot of people here, sorry.
I have a great idea. Why don't you and I head to the capital tomorrow?
No, I don't think so.
Ok, how about Los Angeles?
Not even around the corner.
Not even.
We don't have classes tomorrow!
Hey! Do you like Los Angeles?
I can't deal with your blackmail, Max.
I can't avoid Nico for the rest of my life.
How much longer will you be torturing me?
I don't know. Until I'm no longer nauseous?
Or it gets as boring as this party.
This party? What more do you want from it?
Is a little action too much to ask for?
The night's missing something, don't you think?
Don't you love adolescence? When a terrible idea like breaking into the school seems like a great one?
But only if as you have the right key to open the doors to a world that, if not better, is at least more entertaining.
There we go.
Ready for your anniversary party?
Alright, let's go. Help me out with this.
Are you gonna answer or what?
Why would I? We're still fighting.
I don't like what I'm about to say, but I hate seeing you like this.
Why don't you just ask him to come?
You think so?
Invite him.
C'mon! Let's go.
What's up?
No, she actually asked me to come take Father Harold for a walk.
Isn't he dead?
That's what I thought. Wanna go?
Are you two all made up?
No, but we're working on it.
Then I don't think it's a good idea. Thanks, anyway.
You'd rather stay and watch my father's midlife crisis?
Fine, let's go.
Dan, check out this song!
I'll see you out there! Yes, Dad?
Be honest. Are you ready?
Here we go.
[Every time you walk away or run away, you take a piece of me with you there]
That bad, huh?
It's not bad. It just needs a little work. I gotta go. See you soon, ok?
I'm sick of fighting, and her family makes me so angry.
Her grandmother's crazy!
I know, trust me.
If you want some advice? Stay of out it. Just forget it.
Dad, I've tried to tell her, but she won't listen.
It's her grandmother. Her family. Of course she won't listen.
You're right, thanks.
See ya.
Wow, racy party.
Seriously? Doesn't this guy bore you?
I mean, you know you can do better with that body, right?
A hippie?
A tramp.
Do you ever give it a rest?
Max, leave him alone.
Is this why you invited me?
No, I'm sorry.
Want a beer?
First of all: hi.
Daniel, I just want us to be together again.
You don't know how much I've missed you.
I missed you, too.
I'm sorry for the things I said about your grandma. It wasn't my place.
Don't worry. I know my family can be harsh. They do it out of love for me.
I'm sure it was all a misunderstanding. Right?
It is cool if we leave our families out of this from now on?
Very cool.
C'mon, let's party.
You look great hugging our stone founder.
Hilarious. Now erase the picture. Do it!
Or you'll mess us up, right?
No, quit it!
No fighting, please. It's the old man's birthday.
Come on, baby, let's go have fun.
What could happen? You've got lipstick everywhere.
We're very proud of our students here at Harold's.
They're part of society's highest circles and come from prestigious families.
Clearly not all of them, Madame Principal.
Who did this? Who's responsible?
Ma'am, I found this photo next to the statue.
It's got some photos on it that might interest you.
That's right, kids. We know who participated in the act of vandalism against this school.
But guess what? We need a culprit. Ma'am?
It's a shame you're here under these circumstances, but the evidence demands it.
I already spoke with some of your parents - the ones I could locate, at least.
I'm very anxious to read your essays, in which you will eloquently explain how you broke into the school drunk.
Who opened the cabinet? Who had the key?
I'll be interviewing you one by one, and the culprit will be expelled.
And if I can't find the culprit? You'll all suffer the same fate.
I have nothing to say to you.
We're all clear on what to do, right?
As long as no one says anything, we won't have any problems.
Who even had the key?
I guess we know Nico won't be cracking under pressure.
This is serious. Are we all agreed?
How can you do it without a culprit?
This is a tried and true method. It's worked several times, okay?
It's going to be fine. I promise.
Were you at the same meeting as me just now?
Yeah, but they can't expel us all. No way.
Trust me.
I'll see you in a bit.
But every chain has a weakest link, and it's only a matter of time until it breaks.
I'm innocent.
Well, not totally.
I did a stupid thing with the wrong person, and I'm completely ashamed of it.
The worst of it is that then I did the stupid thing again with a different person, which I'm not as ashamed of.
I think life is a progression of lessons to be learned.
It's so hard being a teen, you know?
Yes, very hard. But that's not the point.
I've been looking over your record, which is spotless.
I never expected you to do something like this.
Honestly, it's super difficult being perfect.
As you just noted, Madame Principal, my participation in this event was totally unlike me.
I'm sorry, but I can't help you.
Are you really writing that essay?
I thought you didn't even know who had the key.
Since when do you beg?
Sorry, just a saying.
No, she's just playing hard to get. You know women.
She kissed me at the pool.
She kissed you?
Well, I kissed her, but same thing.
And how was it? Was she into it, or was she just like eh?
Don't be an ass, of course she was into it.
Who do you think you're talking to?
With you, buddy. That's why I'm asking.
Hey, Dad.
Yeah, I know, I wasn't able to answer. I saw your 25,000 messages but couldn't respond.
Danny, I know how worried you are. But a lot of kids from the party didn't tell their parents.
Dad, you don't have to say it, really. I regret leaving the hotel.
You're not understanding me. If you know anything that can get you out of this, you need to come clean now.
Don't think for even a second that the other kids won't try to save their own skins.
So don't be dumb, please. Do the same.
Hey, Marcelo.
I came because I just heard about what they did to that poor statue.
You drove out to the waterfront to tell me that?
No. The truth is I wanted to tell you -
You used to have better excuses.
Marcelo, I come in peace, okay?
Lower your weapons. I don't want to argue or fight.
I know, but we always end up doing it.
I have no intention of interfering in your life, much less in your marriage.
I have enough going on in my life already.
I don't need to get involved in gossip with a married man trying to get his family back.
Wow, that sounds lovely.
My mom has cancer.
I didn't know.
You had no reason to.
Can I help in any way? Whatever you need.
He's been very supportive throughout this difficult process.
Emiliano. Of course.
Things between us have been getting serious.
I wanted you to hear it from me. I'm tired of gossip.
Damn. (Well, bye.)
Life teaches us many lessons.
But a rich kid's life teaches that even if you're guilty, you can ride your punishment out in style.
Hey, handsome!
I thought we were gonna study?
Yes, surfer. Which is what we're doing.
It's just that not all of us go to public libraries to play with used books.
Want a mimosa?
No, thanks. (No, thanks.)
Don't listen to her. I'll find us a place to study.
Max, what are you doing?
This is evidence. Don't show it off.
Can we have a moment alone, please?
Max, you have to tell the truth. There's no other option.
You know, I'm sick of you acting like we're friends.
If I don't talk to you, don't talk to me.
That wouldn't be the Harold's key, would it?
Aw, the poor boy's worried about losing his scholarship?
Let me explain something: no matter who you're dating, you and I come from different worlds.
If I get in trouble, I just have to give a donation in the Zaga name.
Yeah, great world you live in.
It's not perfect, but it does offer security.
My family can take care of me.
What can the Parras do? Give the principal a coupon for your hotel?
Maybe your daddy's autograph?
If you must know, I was guarding the key so no one gets blamed.
Including you.
House loses! C'mon, guys.
Nico, what are you doing here?
I wanted to talk to you. I brought you this.
It's bad manners for a hostess to hide in her room.
What's wrong with you? Let go of me.
Then stop slutting around with Nico.
I haven't done anything.
A kiss sends the wrong impression.
Don't waste time denying it.
Max, I'm sick of this. Why don't you go tell Nico everything?
He's in my room. Go and tell him his best friend hooked up with his girlfriend.
No, actually, that's the least of it.
I'll tell him what a great actress you are. Faking your virginity?
You deserve an Oscar.
And this great actress will just say you're lying.
Let's see who he believes: the depraved scoundrel or the nun?
Where are you going? I found us a place to study.
Look, Sof, I think I'll just study at home.
Besides, Max is right.
Max? Please don't listen to him.
I get it now. This isn't as serious for you because that's how your world works.
How can you say that? Of course it's serious. Relax.
I just don't think you're getting it.
I'm on scholarship. My parents can't buy my standing, here or anywhere else.
If the owner of the key refuses to speak, anyone with information has the right to say something.
You know something, don't you?
Sof, aren't you going to speak up? Really?
Daniel, please. You don't understand.
I understand perfectly. That's the problem.
Hey, salted snapper! A favorite dish of the Parras. This is great.
It's been awhile since I made you guys something special.
I wanted to have dinner as a family, like we used to.
Very nice.
How exciting. May I ask why?
Calm down. She just came to say -
What? That she misses you? That you have a beautiful family?
No. That she doesn't want to interfere in our marriage.
Too late, don't you think?
While we're on the subject? Let's talk plainly, Alicia.
The first person to bring a third party into this marriage was you.
You think I didn't notice your behavior, not to mention those anonymous phone calls?
I don't know why I came back.
How did I not realize she would show up again?
Liliana just came to tell me her mom has cancer.
The rest was just a passing comment.
I don't believe even that.
Liliana's in the past, Alicia. You and I are the present.
The two - four - of us are in this together.
[He said 4 & I realized there's no Jenny. Where's my baby?!]
I love you.
Let's have dinner, just you and I. No one else.
I have a surprise for you.
And your board?
Or did you just come to see me?
What? The statue of founder?
Yeah. Worse, if no one confesses, they're expelling us all.
Remember when we stole candy from the store?
You couldn't sleep all night because you felt so guilty.
I remember. You called me a pussy instead of admiring my honesty.
And then the next day you went and paid for them!
Well, that's what I'm talking about.
Danny, I don't know your new friends. But I know you. You're honest, intelligent, with a great future ahead of you.
Don't let it go to waste for these idiots, please.
I don't think they're the problem this time.
Yeah. I think she knows who had the key, but she won't say.
Well, don't worry about it. If she cares about you, she'll have to talk. Right?
I hope so.
How're the waves?
Come in.
I have something to tell you
It was me.
It was me. I mean, I got everyone into the school.
Yes, I know, and I'm very sorry.
I've been looking at your record, and it's truly mediocre. Just like your grades.
Don't you care about school or your future?
Can we skip to the punishment part?
Yes, but I need you to answer a question.
How did you get Father Harold's bust out?
With this.
Can you tell me where you got this key?
There are only three in the school: the concierge's, the student body president's, and mine.
Yesterday, I told you your behavior would have serious consequences, but you didn't believe me.
Today, someone took responsibility for a crime they did not commit.
Though I appreciate their sacrifice, I don't tolerate lies.
I don't think it's necessary to show you the door.
Looks like Harold's has a new policy: actually disciplining their kids.
Sorry, Nico, looking pretty won't help you escape justice.
Now let's see. Who wants to be next?
Parra, I think she needs a man. You up for it?
Sof, listen to me. I can't be expelled! My future depends on this.
If you know who broke in, then why don't you just tell them?
Don't cry about it. If you want, you can borrow my suite.
If you want, I can send you to the hospital. How's that?
Both of you calm down. We have bigger problems than your egos.
We'll talk later. If I stay any longer, I won't be held responsible for my actions.
Wow, what a man. So virile.
But don't waste your charm on me. You know who to use it on.
Max, enough.
Daniel Parra, you've been called to the principal's office at 4pm this afternoon.
In her office? She's kinky.
Quit it!
Are you okay?
Yeah, it's nothing. After everything, this is the least of my problems.
You told the principal the key was yours because you thought it was mine?
That's the most romantic thing anyone's ever done for me.
Well, you're my girlfriend. I didn't want you to get in trouble.
Nico, no. You and I aren't together.
I appreciate what you did, but don't get confused.
Seriously? I don't believe this.
[How hard is it to believe that the girl who won't return your calls isn't your girlfriend?]
So we'll talk later?
Don't worry about anything, please.
Hey, what're you doing here?
I'm not sure how well you know Daniel, but he's a good guy. Unlike your friends.
Excuse me?
Maybe it's hard for someone like you to understand, but he's worked for everything he has.
Calm down. There's a reason I'm his girlfriend, okay?
Doesn't seem like it.
[Jenny! My precious!]
Max helping the poor? Nico getting good grades? Whatever happens, bet it'll be good for gossip.
Red? You look very sexy, Mom.
Is it too much?
Of course not! Dad's gonna go crazy. You look like one hot bitch.
Jenny! What kind of language is that?
I'm really glad you're going out to eat and making plans.
Do you think things can go back to the way they were?
We're both really trying.
But there's one thing you and your brother should never forget.
And that's that we love you more than anything in the world.
I know that. But, Mom, I really want things to get back to normal.
It could happen.
Your dad told me he has a surprise for me.
Yes! I know what it is! Mom, can I tell you?
Why not? Please, Mom!
I'm not listening!
I want to tell you! Come back!
I don't know, Emiliano. She hasn't arrived yet.
You don't know how much I appreciate your support at this time. I don't know what I'd do without you.
You're wonderful.
Yes, I'll call you when she gets here and tell you how it went.
Speaking of the princess, here she is. I'll call you back.
It took a lot of work for them to take you back, and now you go and get yourself kicked out?
Of course they didn't expel me, Mom. Boarding school is the last place I want to go.
Guilt's best friend is remorse, especially if your boyfriend's future is in your hands.
Tell me again. You took responsibility and she did what?!
She sent me packing.
I think you're past the point of knight in shining armor. You're the damsel of the story.
Do you know who it was?
Who else besides me has been with half the school, huh?
Daniel, I need you to clear this up for me, because I really don't understand.
You're at Harold's, the most prestigious school in the country, on a scholarship. You're second in your class.
You have a brilliant future ahead, and you're throwing it away.
Yeah, I guess I am. Thanks.
I was to remind you that your position at this school is as safe as your friends'. You need us.
Madame Principal, I have something I have to tell you.
Your record resembles that of a career criminal's.
Drugs, alcohol, absences, liasions with professors. Should I continue?
I know that what happened is very serious, and I am not an exemplary student.
But I want you to know that the person you just described doesn't exist anymore.
My grades are up, I haven't missed any classes, and I haven't gotten into trouble.
Until now.
Please, ma'am. I didn't mean to disrespect the school.
And though it took me some time, I'm prepared to face the consequences of my actions.
Whatever you think is fair.
We'll discuss the consequences later.
Come in!
Green or blue?
Blue. What's the occasion? Tell me.
The plan is to seduce my wife with a private concert.
That's awesome!
You two have a great thing going, and I'm glad you can still fix it.
I think anything can be fixed, so long as you don't give up.
I don't know, I don't think there's much to be done in my case.
You mean with Daniel?
[Chemistry, anyone?]
You know, I think I need a backup singer. You up for it?
Of course!
Why not?
You'll have to play the ukelele.
The what?!
I was practically drooling over you in there. I never knew a confession could be so sexy.
You were right. Doing the right thing can't lead to horrible consequences.
But if it had been me? They'd put my head on a stick for everyone to see.
Are you implying my family had something to do with this?
I'm implying that the name Lopez-Haro was involved, yes.
Hey! My family didn't bribe anyone. Can't you give me credit for once?
You're right. It was very brave of you to take responsibility.
Thank you.
What I don't understand is why you didn't tell me.
I didn't want you to have to decide between me and your future.
I'll have to give my thanks to the principal.
What for?
It's thanks to her that you're still here.
If you weren't here, if you were at some boarding school, I'd die.
[Daniel participates in Tumblr speak, apparently. Or else he'd literally die.]
You know what the best part was? Your uncle's face!
He didn't lose face, he just kept going straight on into the lake. The best!
I remember it vividly. You know what's sad, though?
That those picnics, those wonderful family reunions, aren't happening anymore.
I miss them a lot.
Me, too.
Let's make a promise.
What? To not fight again?
Besides that. Let's not hide things from each other.
Oh, surfer. I think you're talking too much, given our short time together.
Be quiet.
What're you doing outside? Come in.
Is what you said in this letter true?
I love happy endings because they never last long.
And I love living in Aca because, though the nights are cool, the morning will heat my twitter up with gossip all over again.
