Gossip Girl: Acapulco (2013) s01e23 Episode Script

La sustituta

Barbarita, to what do I owe the honor of your call? Tell me.
I was calling to see if you'd heard from Max.
Of course I haven't. We're talking about the most irresponsible person in the universe.
You're so frustrating, woman. I thought you were calling for me. Too bad.
Obviously not. I'm really worried about him. There's an exam today, and he's nowhere.
Please tell me where he is.
You still want my help after the way you've treated me?
Look, Princess. In life, everything has a price. And that information has a pretty high one.
I don't have for this. How high?
You can decide that. How much do you want to see him?
Are you serious? I can't believe you're like this. We're talking about your family.
I'm a man of business, and that's what we're discussing. What're you willing to do for him?
What are you insinuating?
Nothing. I'm not insinuating anything. Just asking what you're willing to do.
I don't know. Whatever it takes.
Are you sure about that?
Yes, alright?
I'll be expecting you at my home, 9pm.
Are you certain of what you're saying?
But how'd you find him? Where was he?
Please, please give me the details. Please.
It's fine, I'm sorry. It's fine, thank you.
What's wrong, Mom?
Are you alright?
What's going on?
Breathe, relax. What happened?
Your dad Your dad
What happened to him?
His car was found nearby, on the highway.
But what happened to him? Is he okay?
Your father hasn't been found. His car's been there for two weeks.
Some people in the town reported it, but no one knows how it got there.
I was hoping he'd show up.
Don't worry. I'm sure he's fine.
The fact that he hasn't come to us for money is a good sign.
I've told the police not to stop looking for him.
It's one thing for him to have abandoned us, and another for him to be hurt and us not to do anything.
Yes, of course. I know.
Don't say anything about this to your grandfather. For now.
Hey, Barbie. (Nervous?)
Of course not.
Did you hear Jenny Parra's back in school?
I couldn't care less about Jenny Parra.
Oh, Vivi. You losing sleep over Jenny Parra?
No way. I was just saying.
I'll have to ask you, in the nicest way possible, not to distract me.
I'm about to take my exam, and I plan to have the highest grade in the class.
They found my dad's car.
What? Where? And your dad?
Seems like it was stolen. There's no sign of him.
Oh, Nico
But don't worry about it. Stay positive, he's probably fine.
At least Max got a letter, you know? I don't have anything like that.
I know.
But deep down, I have hope. And fear.
But don't go to extremes. You can't know that he didn't sell the car first, or leave it behind.
You're right, that could be it.
Don't worry. Everything will be fine.
Look, there's Daniel. Let's go.
Hey! (What's up?)
Did you study?
Are you really asking me that?
Of course, I forgot you're a nerd.
Kind of. And you two?
Yeah, I did a little bit.
Yeah, but I think I'm screwed.
Well, let's hurry and and get started, right?
[Is that Daniel's O-face?]
Good morning. I'm Giovanna Arismende, the International Subject Test representative for Harold's.
I know most of you have done this before, but I'll explain for those who haven't.
This exam will qualify you, on an international level, to proceed to the next grade.
There are two hundred and fifty questions, which must be answered in under three hours.
If I catch anyone cheating, I'll be forced to take their exam away and disqualify them.
The exams come sealed and marked with each of your names.
I'll call you one by one. Identify yourself, so I can give you the exam.
[You understand names in other languages, right? I had an ordeal where people didn't understand the way I said Mariah Carey, but I trust you guys can do it.]
You may begin.
[I am 100% sure she didn't call everyone's name. Why is Cristina more important than other extras?]
[You two are gross. Get a hotel room, not a classroom.]
[I hope this guy passes. I'm really worried for him.]
Time's up.
Stop writing.
Please put away your exams and leave the room.
Mr. Parra? Please stay a moment.
[OMG, no. Kill me.]
You? I never thought I'd find you here.
I know. I never would've imagined that you'd be my teacher, Miss.
Student and teacher in a summer romance.
But you can be sure that, if I had known, this wouldn't have happened.
Oh, really? (Really.)
Well, if I had known, I still wouldn't care.
What are you doing tonight?
Besides treating me normally, please, where are you taking me out to?
You're crazy, Miss. Of course I can't take you out. I'm a scholarship student.
So what? It's not like we're doing anything wrong.
No one said this is wrong, but I could get in trouble.
Don't think you can leave me this way.
[So many things of dubious consent happening this episode. I disapprove.]
Look who it is.
So gorgeous. And so punctual.
Let's save the sweet talk and get this over with.
And let's be clear. I'm here for Max, not for you, okay?
Yeah, yeah, no worries. No one's forcing anyone here. This is all friendly, full of smiles.
Otherwise, we can leave it for another day. Whatever you want.
What can I get you to drink?
The same thing you're drinking.
So the little lady likes dry martinis.
Relax. There's no hurry.
Now we'll see how much you care about Maxie. What have you prepared for me tonight?
[Someone save me from this moment.]
What? That's it?
I wonder why you're doing all this?
Because I want to know where Max is.
I think you're a little confused.
What're you talking about?
Yeah, I think you mistook me.
I don't know why you're here. Undressing, offering me your body?
Who do you think you're dealing with?
Isn't this what we agreed on? So you'd tell me where Max is.
No, that's what you agreed on. Because I didn't say anything.
Know I know the lengths you'll go to for love - or ambition.
That's insane.
He's supposed to be in Thailand, but he couldn't even do that right.
He was too drunk to even make it to the airport.
Here. You can offer yourself to him instead.
Bye, Barbarita.
Hey, can you help me out with these?
Yeah, sure.
(Hey.) If you'll excuse me. (Sure, Ana.)
So where are you taking me?
Believe me, if you were anyone else, I wouldn't reject your invitation.
But unfortunately, I can't do anything with you. I could get in trouble.
Are you sure you can't do anything with me?
I thought we had a great time. We had some good conversation.
A good dinner, a good kiss. Well, two. There were two good kisses.
Two, yes. But the first was before I knew you were my teacher.
And the second one, you stole.
Me? (Yes.)
Hey, don't exaggerate! What about you?
Look, we won't do anything that could hurt you. We'll just have dinner, that's it.
That's fine. Sorry. What're you in the mood for?
Alright, you have one chance to get back in my good graces. Surprise me.
But it better be good.
Something good, I promise. (Holding you to that.)
Come in!
May I?
How are you? (Good.)
Sit down. To what do I owe this pleasure?
I wanted to see you.
We're on the same page. I was about to call you and ask you to the movies.
Oh, yeah? I must've read your mind.
And those flowers, Doc? Is someone seducing you?
Congratulate me. (Why?)
You're looking at the newest member of Doctors Without Borders.
Hey, congratulations! What does that mean?
My lifelong dream. It's the reason I decided to study medicine.
How? What is?
I studied medicine because I want to heal people.
I think that's clear enough.
It's an association that's dedicated to providing medical care to the more marginalized parts of the world.
Wow, that sounds amazing.
And it is. The best part is that I get the chance to help those people, cure them.
So I'm going on a mission.
Where to?
I'm going to Africa. To Somalia.
You're going to Africa? (That's right.)
For how long? (Indefinitely.)
That means you don't know when you're coming back?
Well, congratulations.
I do agree that the view was spectacular.
Yeah, incredible, right?
And those were the best mussels I've had in my life.
Told you so!
But you know what? There is a problem.
What is it?
I won't be able to sleep.
Why not? They didn't sit well with you?
Didn't you know seafood was an aphrodisiac?
Hey, Sof.
Hi, Miss.
Hey, how are you?
Good, thanks.
I went upstairs to look for you, but I didn't find anyone.
Sorry, I should've called. I was just in the neighborhood.
In the neighborhood? By the waterfront?
Yeah, I had some things to do.
But I'll see you tomorrow, or whenever. Doesn't matter.
No, I'm leaving. Have a nice night, Daniel. Thanks for walking me back.
See you both tomorrow.
Tomorrow. Get some rest, Miss.
I thought I was crazy for a second, but that is the exam lady, right?
Yeah, the same. Turns out she's staying at the hotel. Weird, right?
I didn't know she'd be administering the exam. So when I saw her, I was shocked.
That's funny.
Yeah, real funny.
I just came to make peace with you. I thought we could eat cupcakes and watch movies.
But you're busy, I'm sorry for bothering you.
No, you're not bothering me at all.
(Sorry, it was a stupid idea -) If you want, we can go up and watch movies.
No, I just remembered I have some business to take care of. Let's do it another day.
Sof, really. Let's go.
No, I swear I forgot. It's fine, I'll see you later.
Here, I made these.
Sof! Let me at least walk you to your car.
No, are you kidding? It's fine, really.
How can you say that? I'm -
Daniel. I know the way, okay?
Just be careful.
Have a good night. See you tomorrow!
[I kind of feel bad for Dan? What even.]
[I thought you lost your inheritance, Max? How are you paying for this?]
Get your things and let's go, Max.
What are you doing here?
I came for you.
Sir? (Yes?) For the check.
I'm not going.
Who do you think you are?
Who are you to tell me what to do?
Hold up, Max. You're in terrible shape.
We need to go take back what's yours, and you can't do it like this.
[Can we get Nico to knock his bb out and carry him home?]
There's someone here with me.
Max! Where've you been hiding?
Do you know how worried I was about you?
You have nothing to worry about.
Of course I do. I hope one day you understand that we're your family.
I really loved your father. What happened hurt me, too, Max.
I want you to be close to me. To lean on me, if necessary.
I don't need anyone.
That's exactly the kind of thinking that's gotten you into so much trouble.
Put aside your pride, your hang ups, your resentment. Let me help you.
Why did you leave me out of the will reading?
I didn't leave you out. Your lawyer was there.
I didn't send any lawyer.
I'm so stupid.
Your father never trusted Federico. That's why he left me this.
What is that?
Your father's last will and testament.
Read it.
You're my guardian?
He'd never have left you unprotected. He loved you.
You've got a lot to do now. But first, school.
I don't wanna go back to school.
I you don't go back, I can't help you. Okay, Max?
Seriously. I swear this is the best ice cream ever.
Please. You're so overdramatic.
I'm not exaggerating. Try this.
It's really good. Better than mine.
Want some more?
What's wrong with you?
Funny how things turn out, don't you think?
If you'd told me why you were in Acapulco that first dinner, things would be different.
Better yet, if you had let me speak at all.
If you had known who I was, you'd have treated me like an old lady.
No one called you old. You just said it yourself.
Old, huh?
You just had to get your revenge. Come here!
[Why did that scene exist?]
Who is it?
May I come in?
Who died?
Why're you asking?
I ask because of your face.
I'm just bored.
You sure? In that case, why don't we take a walk? I'm bored too, actually.
No, I don't feel like it.
Let's review, Vanessa. You're bored, but you don't wanna do anything. Which is it?
Okay, I know what it is. A romantic disappointment.
No, not at all.
Vanessa, you're obsessed with the doctor.
Jen, you're such a busybody!
No, I'm not. I'm just observant.
Well, very badly observed.
Vanessa, I know you, okay? You can't lie to me. Why didn't you take his call?
I don't wanna see him anymore.
I fell for someone who's going to leave me. Again.
(Why?) He's going to Africa.
I don't know for how long, and I don't plan on waiting.
I did it with your brother, and look how that turned out.
Vane, I'm really sorry. But it's not his fault.
At least pick up the phone to say it's over. He's been really sweet.
And I'm sure he's not trying to hurt you.
I know.
But it still hurts. And I don't want to suffer because of him, or anyone else. You know?
I get it. But if I were you, I'd still answer the phone to tell him.
I mean, unless you're still interested in someone else?
What are you talking about?
I'm just saying.
Yeah, sure. You gossip.
I'm not a gossip! What's your problem?
I don't care if you have time or not.
Let's make this clear. When I give an order, you follow it if you want to keep your job.
I want those documents in my office today.
Amazing. You're a fast learner.
What's up, nephew? It's a miracle.
Glad you showed up.
See, I love surprises.
How is everything?
In general, everything's great. We didn't need you at all.
Oh, uncle. You don't know how relieved I am.
In fact, why don't make a toast?
What're we toasting to?
To my return.
Your return? I like it. To the return of the all-powerful Maximiliano Zaga.
I love it.
But speaking seriously, you really haven't been missed at the company.
It's almost as if your dad were still here.
Make no mistake. It takes a lot more to fill my father's shoes.
In fact, I don't think you ever will.
Nephew, don't get upset. I just mean that you can keep living your life of excess and partying.
Meanwhile, I'll be here, working for the company.
You think so?
Of course. (Really?)
I swear it.
I think you're wrong.
Actually, why don't we make another toast?
Another? (Yes, yes.)
To your departure.
My departure?
Yes, your happy return home.
Oh, yeah?
Yeah. Oh, well, sorry.
Your unhappy return home. Because if it were me?
I'd find it a little depressing to go back empty-handed. Thinking I had it all and then losing it.
Oh, yes. Of course. But isn't that you right now?
You had it all, then lost it. But you know why that is?
Because you're irresponsible.
You know what? It didn't work.
Didn't work. Those documents I signed?
Trash. They don't count. They're invalid.
You wish. But unfortunately, everything you signed is irreversible.
Your signature is worth as much here as in China.
Oh, Uncle. You're right about my signature's worth at least.
Your documents, however, are worth nothing.
My dad changed the will before he died.
But thanks for keeping my seat warm.
Shall I walk you out, or can you do it alone?
Like Einstein said, everything's relative. Nothing's absolute. If you don't believe me, ask Federico Zaga.
I'll get it!
Hello? Yes, this is she.
You're not lying? I mean, you're sure?
Yes, we're on our way. Thank you so much.
Someone matching your father's description was admitted to the regional hospital. Let's go!
Come in, please.
He arrived a short while ago.
Hadn't eaten anything in two days. Dehydrated. He was unconscious when he came in.
When he woke up, he couldn't remember anything.
But he's alright, doctor? We'd like to take him to another hospital.
Actually, that won't be necessary. We did a few tests and found no reason to hospitalize him.
I recommend a few neural exercises, though, to figure out why he's got amnesia.
And, of course, we can perform those studies here or with the doctor of your choice.
So he can come home today?
Yeah, you can take him home as soon as he wakes.
We just need to fill out the paperwork when he's ready.
Thank you so much, doctor. This is great news.
There's nothing to thank me for. That's what we're here for.
And, please. If you need anything, just ask. Now if you'll excuse me.
You don't know how happy I am.
But I'm very worried about the amnesia.
Don't worry, Mom. It's just temporary, you'll see. He'll be fine.
I hope so. I can't go on like this. I thought this moment would never come.
But it did. Starting today, everything will be different.
How will we tell your grandfather?
I don't know, but let's not think about that right now.
(Dad.) Santiago!
Who are you?
It's me, Ana. Your wife.
And this is Nico, your son.
I don't know you.
Don't worry, Dad. Take it easy. The important thing is that you're here with us.
Yes, my love. How are you feeling?
My head hurts a lot.
I'll get you something for the pain. The doctor said you could come home with us.
Where am I?
We're in Acapulco. That's where we live.
But why am I here?
We don't know, but don't worry about that. We'll find out little by little.
Yes, we're gonna fill out the paperwork to get you out of here.
Once you're with us, your memory will come back, okay?
[I wish SB scenes would come back, tbh.]
This place is beautiful.
You're beautiful.
Thank you for being here with me.
I don't like the reason for it.
Because it's your goodbye. It's our last dinner.
So you're taking it for granted that we won't see each other again?
Well, yeah, right?
You're leaving, and you don't know when you'll be back.
I am leaving, but did you think I'd let you go that easily?
Vanessa, since I've met you, I've found you to be an attractive, intelligent woman.
I can't stop thinking about you. I really like you.
Please don't say all this just before you leave.
It's not fair. I've had a great time with you, and it's been awhile since I felt this way.
But it's not fair for you to leave me like this.
That's exactly why I asked you to dinner tonight.
I'd like you to move to Somalia with me.
Wait. You want me to go with you?
Come join me on this adventure. You'll experience a new culture, new country. It'll help you in your future as a photographer.
You can document it all, and I'll help you sell the finished product.
You've just You surprised me. I don't know what to say.
There's so little time, and I have so much to do.
Look, I know it's a hard decision to make. You can't just decide overnight.
I only ask that you think about it, please.
But it's
Please. Just think about it.
Talk it over with your family.
Hey! (What's up?)
How's the happiest man in the world?
You're joking, but you don't know how happy I am.
I can imagine.
That's great. I just wanted to come by and give you a hug.
Come in!
No, I couldn't. I don't want to interrupt family time.
Don't be silly. Sit down.
How's your dad doing?
A little out of it, since he can't remember anything. But overall fine.
He went to the doctor, but they said there'll have to run some tests before they have a diagnosis.
But it's awesome having him back, isn't it?
Yeah, of course. And I'm happy for my mom, too.
I don't know how to tell my grandfather, though.
He's got no love for my dad, and after what happened? Even less now.
At least he's not in Acapulco right now. You'll have time to decide how to act.
We'll see what I do.
Here's a study guide I made you. If you read it over, I promise you'll pass.
I don't even know if I'll take it.
You're going to! It's not up for discussion.
I hate studying.
Max, it's so easy. Help me help you.
Oh, the lovebirds. How nice.
What are you doing here?
Relax, I come in peace. I actually came to say goodbye, as I'm leaving in the morning.
Oh, how sweet. Thanks for coming. We were so worried you'd leave without a goodbye.
Glad you're here, Princess. Look what I brought.
You and I had such a nice time that I wanted to share your beauty with my nephew.
Well, that's all I've got. I'll leave. Thanks for great visit.
Bye, gorgeous.
Tell me this is a joke.
Max, it's not what it looks like. Let me explain how it was, alright?
How was it? You liked it? It was good? You couldn't have enjoyed yourself more?
It wasn't like that, Max. Please hear me out.
Max, don't start drinking.
I did it for you.
For me? You slept with my uncle for me?
No, that's not what happened! Listen to me!
Get out. Please, leave.
I never want to see you again in my life.
You have no idea what you're saying.
I did it for you!
To what end? So you could throw it in my face?
You perfectly well this would be low, even for someone like me.
What's wrong with you?
Get out.
And please don't come back.
When you sacrifice something, you have to be ready to face the consequences. Poor Barbie. To think it was all in vain.
See you later. XOXO, GOSSIP GIRL.
