Gossip Girl: Acapulco (2013) s01e24 Episode Script

Prueba de vida

This school's social circle is becoming a complete disaster.
If you could make three people from Harold's disappear, who would they be?
Good question.
I don't know That girl.
Who even knows her?
You know who does? Last season.
Jenny Parra, obviously. For being a pathetic thief and social climber that stills gets on my nerves.
(Such a fake.) And finally Don't tell me. Max?
After everything he's done?
Vivi, Max may be a jerk. The worst guy in the world, even.
But being evil requires talent.
What is this? Looks like the unemployment line.
The exam grades are up.
I'm sure you're number one. Seriously, Barbie, I don't know how you do it.
Perfection is a full-time job, Vivi. Remember that.
Excuse me.
We already know the results, so make way for number one.
I don't know how you did it, but I'm gonna find out, okay?
What are you talking about, crazy woman?
I'm talking about how you can forget your scholarship, Parra.
You might walk around carrying your books with that innocent look on your face, but you don't fool me.
I know you've got something with that teacher, and I'm going to uncover what it is.
So you better hide your dirty laundry, because I'm about to air it all.
Barbie, wait! Barbie, you're giving me a ride, remember?
Not only did he steal my BFF, but also my rank! That guy doesn't know who he's messing with, Vivi.
I know. I know, Barbie.
You know what? I need you to leave. I need space. I want to breathe, and you're suffocating me.
But we came together!
[Yes, Dan. Confront her in fron of everyone. Best plan.]
Are you crazy? Why'd you raise my grade?
I lift your grade, you lift my skirt.
I just remembered I have something super important to do, so we can't go together.
[Vanessa, I love you, but I don't love when you stare at photos of this boy..]
What's up?
I'm looking for a guest directory. Can you help?
I've got them downstairs.
I thought you were gonna serenade me.
Let's ask the doc instead.
I'll be right down!
Stop, stop, stop.
I think we need the printed copy.
From last week?
Hi, can I have my key, please?
Sure. It's number?
The heat is insupportable. I was literally undressing in the taxi.
I need to jump in the pool.
Feels nice today.
Thanks, have a nice day!
(I was just commenting on the pool!) Here's last week's copy, relax.
You'll lose an eye staring like that.
I can't help it! I'm alive, aren't I?
(Hi!) Hi, can I help you?
I'm sure you can. See, I have a huge emergency, but I left my key inside. I can't get into my room!
Just give me a moment, and I'll open it.
No, no, no! Really, it's urgent. You know, personal needs.
You have a stomach ache.
Here. Just give it back to me.
Thanks so much. And, seriously, don't eat the hotel's food, okay?
Good afternoon, Miss! I'm here to clean.
Just one minute! I'm almost out.
[LOL, literally the best product placement I've ever seen.]
[I'm surprised the teacher doesn't have a laptop open to an "I Date Students" homepage.]
I'm so stupid. I left the key inside again!
I'll bring it right back. (No worries, Miss.)
He may be a Parra, but he's got a decent jawline.
Why am I always right?
Do you remember this?
It was your favorite.
Look. You wore the bowtie the day of our wedding.
I remember nothing. Nothing.
Make an effort. Please. Remember! Look. It was a wonderful day.
I'm sorry, but I can't remember.
No, I'm sorry. Sorry for pressuring you. I thought this would work, but
Don't worry.
I know that, little by little, you'll start regaining your memories.
What's your problem?
Don't you have an exam today, Max?
Actually, I'm about you take it.
You know, since my dad died, the headmistress gave me another chance.
Or maybe it's all the money we've given her.
At this rate, I should own the school.
And everything in it.
Max, do you realize that if you fail, you'll have nothing?
Hey, calm down. It's not your problem. It stopped being your problem when
It was never your problem. And you have nothing to worry about.
For people like the Zagas, a diploma is just an accesory.
Like a chihuahua, a watch, a Ferrari. You know.
So don't worry about a thing.
[Since we're in for 45 seconds of silence, I'll just say I felt kinda bad for Max in that scene????? Sorry.]
There say a picture is worth a thousand words.
Even more so if the photo shows Daniel leaving his dork past behind and becoming a teacher's pet.
How'd you know Daniel cheated?
There's some things I can't teach you, dear.
[These people are literally just mouthing words]
May I?
Come in, Ms. Arismendi.
I came as quickly as I could. How can I do for you?
Can you explain this to me?
Headmistress, I hope you don't believe this photo's authentic. It's clearly been photoshopped.
Besides, I'm incapable of doing such a thing.
Are you sure of what you're saying?
Very sure.
And why should I believe you?
Because what photo shows never happened.
Thank you, Ms. Arismendi. You're free to go.
With your permission.
[sexual tension]
Come in, Mr. Parra.
Yes, ma'am.
Sit down, please.
Yes, of course.
I'm sure you know why you're here.
Yes, headmistress.
It's unthinkable that such a perfect record should be laid to waste by something like this.
I assure you that there's an explanation.
I'm listening.
First, I want to establish that what you're seeing in this photo is true.
But this all happened before I knew that Giovana would be my teacher.
And how do I know you're telling the truth?
Or that your exam result wasn't helped by this relationship?
No! I swear I'm telling the truth. What'll it take for you to believe me?
If you want, I can retake the exam. Whatever you say.
Mr. Parra, you're casting doubt on Harold's good name.
I have to turn these grades in tomorrow! I'll give you a chance to not affect the school's reputation.
Prove that what you say is true.
Thank you so much.
Daniel, what happened? What's up with that photo?
Seriously, I can't believe Vanessa would do this. How low!
Vanessa? What does she have to do with it?
What's she - ?
That's what she has to do with it.
What did you do to them?
Nothing, I swear! But this joke's getting me expelled from school.
What are you gonna do?
I don know. I have to prove this happened before I knew Giovana was my teacher.
Did you check the hotel registry?
Yes! That's what I was thinking. I'm heading over there now.
Do you need a ride?
No, you go. I still have class. But good luck!
Let me know what happens!
How could you, Vanessa? I never would've imagined you'd do this to me.
What are you talking about? What's wrong?
Oh, no? So it just magically fell into her hands? She passed it out around school, and now I'm expelled.
They're gonna expel you?
But why? Why would they expel you for kissing some girl? I don't get it.
This girl is my teacher! And you took this photo, Vanessa. How much did she pay you?
Don't insult me! Who do you think you're talking to?
What am I supposed to think? Why'd you give it to her?
I didn't give it to her! Don't you see?
I don't have to explain something I didn't do. Believe me or don't, your call.
So glad I'm leaving. I won't have to look at you ever again.
I hope you never come back. Love your photo.
Glad you're here on time.
The pleasure's mine, headmistress.
This exam is multiple choice. You need only circle the correct answers. Understood?
As you can see, you're the only one here, so you can't cheat.
And pulling a trick only days before graduation would be very childish.
We're all adults here.
I'm sorry about your father. He was a generous man.
I'm sure Harold's will miss him as much as I do.
Good luck, Mr. Zaga.
Are you serious?
[Just circle some answers, Max!]
[This school is way too lax, y'all]
Don't ask why I care.
Just assume I'm doing it to annoy your uncle, okay?
If that's the reason, then I can forget how photogenic you are.
You need my help, Max.
Sometimes it's so hard to accept the way things are. Barbie, there's nothing wrong with saying "I love you."
What's going on? Did you talk to Dad?
Yes. He's furious.
What are you going to do?
I don't know. I checked the sign-in, but I can't prove anything.
And did you check the security cameras?
Cameras Jenny Fernanda, you're a genius!
Do you know who's got the security footage?
Yeah, the security team has them. I just need to know the dates, to ask for them
Ask for the whole week, please.
Okay, perfect.
Omar, can you please send me the security footage for this past week?
Alright, thank you.
They're bringing them now. Or I can take them to you, whatever you want.
No, I'll wait. Thanks.
How's it going, huh? (Great!)
I'm home!
Is anyone home?
Son, why the hurry?
How are you?
Fine, fine.
I didn't know you were back.
I came to bring these documents to your mother.
Well, you don't look that happy to see me.
Of course I am.
You're worred about your dad, right?
Yeah, a little.
Look, Nico. There comes a time when you have to grow up and become a man.
And part of growing up is accepting life as it is.
It's possible that, given his seedy alliances and business dealings, your father's dead.
No. My father's alive.
The fact is no one knows where he is.
Wait. Is there something you want to tell me?
No. I'm just saying, he's my dad. No matter what, I love him, and he'll always be my dad.
I hope you're not hiding anything from me.
You got it? (Yeah.)
I'll just make a copy right and and give it to the school, so they can't blame me.
Amazing. It's got a timestamp and everything.
Wait! Go back.
That dirty cheater came to our home!
(What is it?) I messed up with Vanessa.
I think someone's got a lot to fix today. Good luck.
But it all happened before I knew Giovana would be my teacher.
Neither of us had met before. She was a guest at Boca Chica, which is where we met.
I assure you that, from the moment I learned she'd be administering the exam, nothing else occurred.
You have the scholarship to Harold's, the most prestigious school in the country.
You're number two in your class. Colleges are gonna be fighting over you.
You've got the future in your hands, and you're throwing it away like this?
As far as I'm concerned, you're expelled.
If you've come to yell again, please save it. I'm not in the mood.
No, not at all. In fact, I came to ask your forgiveness.
You went too far this time, Daniel.
I know. Please, that's why I need you to forgive me.
I don't know what went through your head. How could you think I'd do something to hurt you?
Please understand. Imagine how I felt when I saw the photo scattered throughout the school.
But you know me.
You know I'm not like your other friends.
I would never do anything to hurt you.
I know.
Don't go.
There's nothing for me here.
Where are you gonna go?
With Ignacio. To Somalia.
What are you gonna do there?
Move on with my life.
[I wouldn't trade a mission trip to Somalia for Dan, either, V. I feel you.]
Dad, I'm sorry to tell you this, but I couldn't stop them from expelling me.
I got the security footage and tried to prove that Giovana and I happened before I knew she was a teacher, but
It didn't matter.
And what are you going to do?
There's nothing else to do! I can't prove anything.
I don't know what to tell you.
Just that I'm very disappointed. That's all.
I never thought you'd be the one messing around like this.
Did you hear?
Who hasn't?
Hooking up with a teacher to get a better grade? That's worse than kissing a bouncer.
I know, it's awful.
At least he's been expelled.
At it should be, don't you think?
No, I'm not happy about that.
Don't feel bad. He asked for it.
No, no. What I need urgently are the perishables. I need them sent now.
Sorry, I'll have to call you back in five minutes. Thanks.
(Ms. Arimendi.) Mr. Parra, how are you?
Great, thanks. May I talk to you for two minutes, please?
Man, it's just that I'm in a hurry.
One, then. It won't take more than that, promise.
Alright. (Thank you.)
Sit here. I'm going to speak plainly, is that alright?
Yeah, sure.
What can I do for you?
I'd like to ask, or rather beg, you to help my son Daniel.
Daniel's a good kid, and an excellent student.
Now he's been expelled from school. Expelled.
But I can't help there, Mr. Parra.
Of course, you can do a lot for him. You're the only person who can help.
It's a matter of finding the headmistress and talking to her.
Just explain how things really went down.
I'm sorry, Mr. Parra, but if I do what you ask? I'll lose my job.
[How have you not already lost your job?!]
What's up? I thought you weren't in.
I've been here all day.
I didn't feel like going anywhere.
Are you sad?
Yeah, a little out of it. You might say it hasn't been my best week.
When it rains, it pours.
What bums me out most is Vanessa.
I know. I'm really going to miss her.
[Now we're talking telenovelas! I am excite.]
[Good to know The Captain remains the worst.]
I knew I couldn't trust you! Looks like you haven't changed at all.
All you've done this whole time is lie to us.
What are you talking about, Nico?
No reason to hide anymore. I saw you open the safe in the yacht!
Fine, pup. You win. I never meant to lie to you. I had no choice.
Everything I did was for us. For you and your mother, who are my greatest treasures.
But you have to understand. If I don't go now, I'll lose you both forever.
And I can't allow that.
Nico, take care of your mother for me.
Where do you think you're going?
Since you're leaving, let me make things clear.
What's going on?
Santiago was just leaving. And he won't be back.
Not here, not in Acapulco. If necessary, not in all of Mexico.
Please don't leave us again.
Mom, listen.
Dad's leaving, and he's not coming back. We don't need him, and he doesn't need us.
You still have something to return.
Now you can get out of here.
Yeah, of course. Come on in.
Look who it is.
My fairy godmother.
Thanks for that 8.5 you got.
Though I'd have preferred a 10. You know, more worthy of a Zaga.
They would've figured it out. You never get 10s.
Max, we need to talk.
About what happened?
A picture's worth a thousand words.
The photos were pretty clear. You don't need to tell me anything.
Will you let me talk, please?
No. No, thanks.
You know, it's not the first time my uncle and I have shared a woman.
The only difference is that I have my limits.
You're so stupid, Max. I did it all for you, and you can't even see that.
If you care to know, nothing happened with Federico, okay?
You and I are so alike, you know? Except I have some dignity.
He blackmailed me! I was willing to do anything for you!
I'm an idiot. If I lost my dignity, it's because I thought this was worth it.
But I can see it's not.
Maybe next time, don't be so obvious.
I hate you, Max.
[Max, I don't think even you're on your own side. You know your dialogue was dumb.]
Everything will be fine, Mom. You'll see.
I'll take care of you.
[OMG. Nico is so my favorite. I'm melting.]
Come in!
Sorry, Headmistress, but I have something very important to say.
I'm listening.
It's about one of the students. You know, Daniel Parra.
Ex-student, Ms. Arismendi.
He's not at fault for anything. Daniel had no idea I was administering the test when we kissed.
You're admitting to the kiss?
Hard to deny at this point.
Regardless, Mr. Parra was already been expelled from this school.
And I'm here to vouch for him. He did nothing wrong.
He's an excellent student, very honest and full of good intentions.
But that doesn't change anything. He cheated!
Why do you say that?
Please, Giovana, I'm not blind. You helped him.
That's not true. I never gave him any answers or help. He's a brilliant student, you know that.
I assure you that if he retakes the test, he'll do as well as he did with me.
But that doesn't erase the fact that he got involved with a teacher.
Headmistress, I'm serious. Daniel knew nothing about me. If he had, this wouldn't have happened.
That's why I didn't want to tell him.
You understand the implications of what you're saying?
Yes, and I accept the consequences.
May I know why you're doing this?
It's the right thing to do.
I expect a letter from you explaining what happened.
Whatever's required. If you'll excuse me.
[I feel like she's really mad about letting Daniel back in Jealous?]
Can you believe he wasn't satisfied with an 8.5?
That's Max. Since our parents got married, he sometimes wakes me up by blowing in my ear.
(Gross.) I know.
At least we have each other, Sof.
Yeah. Like old times, right?
I've missed being with you like this.
Me, too.
We all have good and bad moments in life, which lead us to making plenty of mistakes. Even in our friendships.
Here you are, Daniel. You have three hours to complete the exam.
Thank you, headmistress. Really.
[This sequence seems unnecessary]
