Holy Family (2022) s01e02 Episode Script

I am Gloria Román

[mysterious music playing]
[Gloria] "That night,
the little lamb found his way back home."
[sighs] "That little lamb
had been stalked all night by crows,
by shadows and by evil beings."
"But now he was safe."
"The little lamb was sure
that his mom would be there,
and the sun would shine brightly."
"And he would cross
many different plains and places."
"As one, they would cross
many different plains and places."
- [Nico babbling]
- [chuckles]
[haunting choral music plays]
[glass scraping]
[Ana crying]
[Germán] Okay. All right, Ana, I hear you.
[crying continues]
[Germán] Come on, honey. Please.
[crying continues]
- [sighs] What's going on, huh?
- [door opens]
Did you poop? Did you? [sniffs]
Don't know.
Why, why, why?
I really don't know.
I guess, it's [sighs]
- [groans]
- Oh, maybe we could try choking her.
[Ana crying]
- [sighs] Come on, come here.
- [huffs]
Let's see if you can sleep a little, okay?
- Come on, now we have to work.
- Hmm.
- [Germán] Shh!
- [lighter clicks]
Hey, I told you not to smoke in here,
especially when the baby's crying.
By the way, we're gonna need more
data to make it easy on the police, okay?
Doesn't her face show enough?
No, I didn't like
what she said about the C-section thing.
- I know there's something there.
- [chuckles] She's making it up.
I'm sure of it.
Well, either way,
DNA testing is necessary though, right?
- Just to be sure.
- [exhales] I'll bring you some DNA.
Perfect. The boy is very trusting.
I should get a lot out of him.
I think that Julia may like me.
- Uh, Gloria?
- Yes. You know what she said to me?
[clicks tongue]
"Do you know the meaning of it, Caterina?"
And I said, "No, I don't know."
And she told me
[gasps] "purity."
[Caterina sighs]
- What are you doing, huh?
- I don't know.
We've spent so much time playing house.
- Yeah, a lot of time. Too much.
- [Ana crying]
Oh, come on.
No, no, no. Don't start crying again.
- Come on.
- [groans] It's too bad, then.
Come on, there you go. That's it.
- [Ana crying]
- Look what you're doing to the girl.
- Hey. Come on, a little burp.
- [exhales]
[Germán] All right, that's it. That's it.
- Happy birthday ♪
- [Gloria] What are you doing?
- To you ♪
- [Gloria] What are you doing?
What did we say about this?
There are no birthdays. Not today!
I told you.
- I thought since Nico celebrated
- Hugo!
- We're at home. It's fine.
- Shit!
- But there are windows!
- Well, he doesn't care.
Like it doesn't matter anyway
if his name is Eduardo or Abel.
I mean, he's already living with us.
Before you know it,
we'll have our passports.
- You don't say when.
- [Gloria] Doing the best I can!
- Well, it's not enough, Mom, right?
- Aitana
I don't wanna be running and hiding
Remember what happened in Barcelona?
We very nearly got caught because of Abel.
Caught by who? You're delirious now!
You have us secluded in your house,
and then you throw
a party full of strangers.
- Do you realize that?
- Come on, Aitana.
Listen, I'm doing all of this
so that we don't look suspicious.
- Oh, come on.
- Edu!
What do you want, huh?
Listen, if you can't put up with
this anymore, then I understand, honey.
I'll say you're my cousin
who's here to visit Madrid.
It's up to you, my love.
I don't know what else to do.
Now, don't worry about me, Mom.
[Gloria exhales]
[Aitana] In Canada, I won't be Aitana.
My love, in Canada,
we'll be able to do whatever we want
and live whatever lives we want,
but now we must continue
using our fake identities.
The only way
they'll forget about our family.
When that happens, I won't know who I am.
[doorbell rings]
[quietly] Downstairs. Stay with Hugo.
[doorbell rings]
[knock on door]
- [Blanca] It's Blanca.
- Oh!
- [Gloria] Hello.
- Hi.
I brought you a little something.
[Gloria exhales]
- Oh, thank you.
- [sighs]
It's not the same one, but I hope this
gift makes you forgive Lorenzo and me.
You didn't have to bother.
No, please, it's nothing.
Will I see you at the park?
I don't think I can make it.
Gloria, you have to enjoy yourself.
I mean, you can't just work all day,
can you? It's important for mothers
[both] To be together as one.
- [chuckles] Yes.
- Mm. Thank you.
- Of course. Hopefully, I'll see you soon.
- Mm-hmm.
- Thank you, Blanca. Bye.
- See you later.
[somber classical music plays]
[telephone ringing]
[Caterina] Hey, good morning, Gloria.
[birds chirping]
[music ends]
They're just so peaceful
when they're sleeping, aren't they?
I wish I could keep mine just sleeping.
Yes, because she wakes up
every hour and a half, over and over.
- Hmm.
- I won't make it.
Constantly, over and over.
Oh, yeah, at first, it's like that.
At first, it's like that.
Well, the very first night
Hugo slept through
[Caterina] Hmm.
I thought he'd stopped breathing.
That's so scary.
- Hmm.
- Hmm. Are you happy with the au pair?
Hmm. Well,
don't know what I'd do without her.
Hmm. She's a bit rude, isn't she?
- She doesn't like me. [chuckles]
- No way, no.
I don't know.
I guess she's very discreet though.
You know, maybe it might be
a good plan to get an au pair.
Could you give me
your agency's phone number?
[Blanca] Hello, ladies!
- [Lorenzo] Hello!
- I'm so glad you're here!
- Hi, Blanca.
- I want to play with the ducks.
No, later, honey. Let's sit right here.
- So Mommy can order her margarita.
- [Lorenzo scoffs]
- The usual, please.
- Yes.
[Lorenzo] The usual.
[inhales] Did I tell you
Ramón's plane lands this afternoon?
- And he'll stay a week now.
- [Caterina] Hmm.
[chuckles] I decided to whiten my teeth!
Can you tell?
[Caterina] Yes, yes, yes, yes.
You look beautiful.
[Blanca] All right,
start drawing, my love.
[Caterina] What?
- Oh, wait, isn't this mine?
- No.
- [Caterina] You sure?
- Yes, it's mine.
- [laughs] Well, then.
- [laughs]
Tonight, everyone is invited for dinner,
and I won't take no for an answer.
- You'll get to know Ramón.
- All of us'll be there then, yeah?
And next time I can host everyone.
What's around your curtains?
Sorry, sweet pea.
- What curtain are you talking about?
- [tense music plays]
That cool curtain in your house.
[waiter] Margarita.
[Blanca] Thanks.
Say what you like more.
- Vanilla or chocolate?
- [laughs]
- Chocolate.
- Oh, he's addicted. He gets it from me.
- [chuckles]
- I'll get you a really tasty big cake.
- [Lorenzo] Thank you.
- [Gloria] You're welcome.
[music ends]
[in Spanish] My name is Ángela.
They're going to kill me.
[man] No!
- [in English] Hey!
- How's it going?
[intense music playing on TV]
[man shouts]
I didn't ask for photocopies.
If you're going to class for me,
you could put in some effort.
I give you everything.
You aren't missing anything.
Yeah, nothing besides my entire life, huh?
Think you'll be a director after all this?
Listen, Amenábar didn't even finish
high school and look what he did.
I'm sorry. I shouldn't have said that.
[sighs deeply]
There is something
that I have to tell you though.
A boy asked if I could play
at this little thing he's having.
Don't tell me you told anyone
that you play the piano?
If Mom gets to continue working on glass,
tell me why
I can't play songs and do music.
[sighs] And it was a Steinway.
[classical tune plays]
I really tried not to do it.
But it's just that
I wish I could describe just how
I finally felt normal.
I let it all go.
I met someone.
- What? How? And when?
- [chuckles]
Well, at night.
I don't know if I'll see him again.
This is all so stupid.
I'm sick of waiting
to actually go out and live our lives.
It can't be that dangerous, right?
We just have to be careful.
And we can cover for each other.
One single mistake and we're dead meat.
The best option is to listen to Mom.
Look, I need to get out of here.
And I mean,
you're literally locked inside, you know?
- Anyway, this'll be our little secret now.
- [sighs]
What's that?
[classical tune fades out]
I used this for this tattoo.
Do you like it?
- [laughs]
- And Mom hasn't even noticed.
- You're crazy, aren't you?
- [laughs]
I would give you one
if you weren't a coward.
Hey, back off.
Let's see, baby.
Oh, Lorenzo, you've drawn Daddy too small.
Can you fix it, please?
Lorenzo, one more try.
- No?
- I don't have an eraser.
You can't hand it in like that.
[sighs] Okay.
[classical music playing]
[Aitana chuckles] I used too much.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Just stay super still.
[Abel] Okay.
- It doesn't hurt. It doesn't hurt.
- [laughs]
You're all done.
It's your turn. I want one too.
- Ow!
- But it doesn't hurt, right, sis?
Take it easy.
Show me.
Now it's permanent.
Mom can't find out
about anything we do outside.
You promise?
Just for tonight.
And I promise too.
- Mariana.
- Eduardo.
[music ends]
[men shouting]
- [chuckles] Excuse me. Appreciate it.
- Come on. Go now, beat it.
Claudia, I have great news.
We have decided
that we may need your little girl
for about three weeks or more, hmm?
Oh, no. No, no.
- What's wrong?
- Mm, no.
If you don't tell me why you need her, no.
Well, I shouldn't be telling you, but, uh,
she's been cast in a movie for us.
- Mm-hmm.
- But it's confidential though.
And you will get paid 50,000 pesetas.
- Hmm? An advance, here you go.
- Hmm.
- [groans]
- What?
But could I see my daughter, huh?
Yeah, of course, but before you do,
you'll just have to sober up
a little bit, all right?
If you don't,
you won't even recognize her.
[Claudia] Mm.
- [scoffs] Hey, hey, let me go.
- Hey, hey, hey, hey.
- [door opens]
- Oh!
[door closes]
- Hi, honey.
- [Blanca] Hello.
Where's Lorenzo?
He's upstairs.
I guess the flight got delayed, then?
- Same as always.
- Hmm.
I feel exhausted,
so I'm gonna take a quick shower, okay?
Ah, I got you a gift.
You wanna open it now?
[gasps] Can I?
[spray can hisses]
How was class? You're very late.
I missed the bus.
I haven't made any friends yet.
They must think
I'm the freak of the class.
I'm going to have dinner at Blanca's.
She pushed and made me do it.
Do not even try to make me feel guilty.
You take bigger risks going to class.
You see more people. That's dangerous.
- All I said is "okay."
- [inhales]
Okay, uh, Hugo's bottles are being boiled.
Turn off the flames later.
- Do you think I wanna go to this thing?
- Well, I don't know!
But it's clear
that you got the best role in this.
- No one forced you to come here.
- Bullshit.
It was either following you
or sinking the whole ship.
And I chose the former just to help you.
Now, I'm your accomplice.
You're not my accomplice.
You're my daughter.
It's been a long time
since you called me that.
[haunting choral music plays]
Hi, I'm Gloria.
It's Gloria Román. How are you?
- [Aitana] Ai-tana.
- Abel.
- [Gloria] I'm Gloria, nice to meet you.
- My name is Aitana.
- [Gloria] Hi, it's Gloria.
- My name is Abel.
- [Aitana] Hello, I'm Aitana.
- Hi, it's Gloria. How are you doing?
- [Blanca] Who is it?
- [Gloria] It's Gloria.
[Blanca] Oh, how pretty!
[gasps] Gloria, please.
You didn't have to. How much was it?
No, it's for Lorenzo.
Yeah, but it cost a fortune.
- Yeah, but I work too, you know?
- [doorbell rings]
[scoffs] Hold that.
- Can I use your restroom?
- [Blanca] Yeah.
[soft classical music playing]
Hello, Ramón.
How are you? Gloria.
- I'll go leave this in the kitchen.
- Perfect.
- [Pedro] Is everyone here?
- [Blanca] Yes, yes! Come in.
[door closes]
[Blanca] Ramón, everyone's here.
- Pedro, Alicia. It's great to see you.
- [Alicia] How are you?
Here, darling, let me introduce you
to our newest friends.
Caterina and Germán.
This is Ramón, my husband.
- A pleasure. Hello.
- [Germán] Nice to meet you.
[soft classical music continues]
[sighs] Isn't it so great, hmm?
It's German.
I can call people
at the grocery store if I want.
- [Caterina] Wow!
- Just for emergencies.
Sure, honey. I know you too well.
- Well, I am very excited to visit Cologne.
- Oh, it's beautiful.
And considering your line of work,
missing that cathedral could be a sin.
- [Germán] Hmm.
- I know. I know.
But I got pregnant, and then that was all.
It's pretty light.
Does it cost a lot more?
- Mm-hmm.
- I think we should make a toast, huh?
- Hmm.
- [Caterina] To Ramón.
And, well, uh, Germany's amazing phones.
And to many more new friends. Hmm?
Yeah, to these cell phones.
They'll keep us trapped
in our lives even on vacation.
- [Caterina] To happiness.
- [Pedro] And the lamb, it was delicious.
- [Caterina] Yeah!
- Thank you so much!
- To happiness!
- [gasping]
[Gloria exhales]
[Ramón] Hmm.
- Don't worry at all. I'll use vinegar.
- [gasps]
- I'm so sorry.
- [Gloria clears throat]
- [Lorenzo] I am Santo!
- I feel so bad.
[Blanca] Lorenzo, what are you doing here?
- Go to bed.
- [Caterina] He's so cute.
Let me do it. Don't worry about it.
- [Lorenzo] I'm Santo!
- [Alicia] You look so handsome.
He's really obsessed
with El Santo right now.
[laughs] Let's see
if they give us the good news.
- [Lorenzo] El Santo!
- Good news?
She and I got the letter today.
We got an appointment
at the adoption center.
So, she She didn't tell you anything?
Uh, no [inhales]
Well, congratulations.
- Congratulations!
- [Germán] That's great.
- [Caterina] Mm!
- Congrats.
[Caterina laughs] Congrats!
- Uh, I'll go check in on Gloria.
- [Germán] Mm.
[Germán sighs]
[water running]
[water stops]
[Caterina] May I?
[clicks tongue] Oh, it's all my fault.
I'm so sorry.
- [exhales]
- I can take it to the dry cleaners.
No, I can get it out.
Are you sure? Here, let me help.
Ah [clicks tongue]
[inhales] I don't know if it'll come out.
Is it hard to raise a child all alone?
No, no, no. I didn't offend you, did I?
I don't know. I just think
that you're just so brave for that.
You're so strong.
[Gloria sighs]
Men will come and go.
But what you create,
what's made from you doesn't.
That lasts forever.
[exhales] That's my strength.
- You don't feel that too?
- [chuckles]
[exhales] So did the stain come out?
No, not at all.
- Honey.
- [Caterina] Hmm?
You wanna smoke?
I'm going for a smoke.
I'll buy you a new one.
[inhales, exhales]
Boo! [laughs]
I didn't think you'd be here.
- Okay, who the hell are you?
- Marcos.
Well, my father is Adolfo Almonacid.
Doesn't ring a bell? Seriously?
Shit, that'd be devastating
for his huge ego.
I'd pay to see my dad hear that.
Well, uh, I don't know what all this is,
but you should have told me.
If I told you the truth,
you wouldn't have come out.
But you're here, right?
The hard part's done. Please.
I made them all wait for you.
[Aitana] Who?
Will you take my hand?
The piano and I. Let's go.
- [note plays]
- [Marcos] Good evening!
- [shushing]
- Uh, I want to introduce you
to a great pianist
who is going to play for us tonight.
This is Aitana.
And what's your, uh, last name?
Aitana Martínez!
[light applause]
[medium-tempo tune playing]
[inhales] Didn't wanna play
for us tonight?
[exhales] Well, I can ask
my band to play some music.
Yeah, that'd make
this party clear out quickly.
You trying to murder our father?
I'll say that I've just been here
trying to make Dad a bit more proud.
Have you seen Mónica?
[music continues]
You're not gonna say hello?
I'll do it next year.
[brother exhales]
Hey, guys, the photographer is here.
- Don't act like idiots, okay?
- Oh, shit.
- [huffs] Please, okay, Mom!
- [mother sighs]
Is it really necessary
for this fucking circus?
It is. Come on.
[photographer] How are you, Rosa?
- How are you?
- [photographer] Good evening.
Let's take the official photo first.
- Let's get a little closer.
- Perfect.
- Perfect.
- Thank you.
- [mother exhales] Mm-hmm.
- [photographer] Okay.
- [camera shutter clicking]
- [photographer] Nice.
- [Rosa chuckles]
- [camera shutter clicks]
[music continues]
[photographer] Smile. This way, please.
I think we can relax a little, don't you?
[Germán chuckles]
You think you should
slow down on the alcohol?
Oh, because at parties like this,
I must drink, or I'll be bored to pieces.
- [laughs]
- You're messing this up now, Caterina.
- [Caterina] Hmm?
- [laughs] Yeah.
[Caterina] Really?
Well, I think it's going well.
You have to kiss me on the lips fast
because Gloria's watching too.
[exhales] So tell me,
do you plan to work at all?
- [Caterina] I am working.
- [Germán] I see. That's great.
I'm heading out.
- And going where?
- To see the kid, remember?
Of course. What are
you gonna do, night watch?
- [Germán chuckles, sighs]
- Hmm?
[both sigh]
[Caterina] Well, give me
some cigarettes. Robocop.
It's such a great night.
It's so pretty, right?
You can even see all the stars too!
[crowd cheering, applauding]
- [woman] Bravo! Bravo!
- [man] Bravo!
You were so amazing, Aitana. Amazing.
Well, I owe you a drink.
Well, it's already
a gift to play, you know? [chuckles]
But I really do owe you one.
Think it'd be bad to leave?
It's a pain in the ass.
[Aitana] Hmm.
- [Marcos] Hmm. Look at those two.
- [exhales]
- [chattering]
- [laughing]
So I guess then you
will inherit your dad's company?
No! That stuff all goes to my brother.
It's good for me.
I can just focus on my music.
Suppose it would look good
posing in a photo, right?
One son does business,
and the other's a pianist, huh?
And what do you have
against female pianists, huh?
Well, they're all just a little snooty.
I guess not all.
- [Aitana] Ah!
- [laughs]
All my favorite memories are of,
uh, the music I do with my band.
They aren't supportive of that.
[exhales] I can't breathe in this suit.
- [exhales]
- [Marcos] I hate these damn bow ties.
- [Aitana chuckles]
- You ever wonder about running away?
- And leaving everything behind you?
- Once or twice.
[chuckles] I knew you would understand.
You're not from Madrid, are you?
- No.
- [Marcos] From the south?
Oh, wait, let me guess it.
Is it near water?
How did you know that?
Well, I never fail. I don't fail.
This intuition is incredible. [chuckles]
My parents have a house in Marbella
we go to from time to time.
And someday, you and I
could possibly go there too.
[gasps] I have to go.
- Now?
- Yeah.
But just wait. Tomorrow's Saturday.
You can stay a little longer.
Yeah, but I work though. As an au pair.
Oh, well, fine,
but I can take you to your house.
I I can. Not a big deal at all.
Got a bike too. Do you like bikes too?
It's such a cool motorcycle.
You wanna check it out?
[laughs] I came here
on my bike, Mr. Marquis.
- And I'm going back on it too.
- Well, I can be your driver.
- [Aitana screams, laughs]
- [laughs] You're gonna get soaked.
- [Aitana laughing]
- [Marcos] Whoo-hoo-hoo!
Ah, shit, I got a little wet!
[engine turns off]
[dog barking in distance]
[lighter clicks]
You out here waiting?
I like to smoke out here.
Can't go home right now.
[both sigh]
Would you like a drink?
You're a bit too old to tailgate,
don't you think?
You old enough to drink beer yet?
- Seventeen.
- [Germán scoffs]
You look older.
Well, you're old enough
for both of us. [laughs]
You have a girlfriend?
A girlfriend
Don't have one.
You have a girlfriend?
Yeah, mine's at my house smoking too.
[pensive music playing]
Don't ever put on one of these rings.
It gets tighter before you know it.
But, oh well. Can always
make time for a big change though.
What do you mean?
Well, maybe trying new things. [exhales]
And why might I wanna try new things, huh?
Were you looking for me?
You were looking for me too.
Are you always so rebellious?
I wasn't gonna leave the bike
at your house.
Hey, I don't have a chauffeur!
Think we can make it?
Thanks, but I prefer staying alive though.
It's a little bad habit I have. I know.
[sighs] If this was our last moment alive,
it wouldn't be so bad, right?
No, but it's not my last.
- Aitana.
- Hold on, Marquis!
- [Marcos] No, you're crazy!
- [both shouting]
[both whooping]
[shouting, laughing]
[shouting, laughing]
[music fades out]
Okay, okay, okay, slow down!
Aitana, slow down!
- No! [laughs]
- Slow down, you're crazy. Stop!
Didn't I tell you?
If this was our last moment alive,
it wasn't so bad.
[both sigh]
So you just wanna make a move on me.
[somber classical music plays]
No more jokes?
I have to leave now.
[music fades out]
[sighs] Alone at last.
You look so sexy, honey.
I love you so much, Blanquita.
[Blanca grunts, exhales]
[inhales] I'll be upstairs.
- [ethereal music playing]
- [woman singing in Spanish]
[alarm blaring]
[Gloria] Aitana!
[inhales sharply]
Oh, Hugo! [gasps]
- [panting]
- [Hugo babbles]
Oh, come on.
My good boy, come on. That's right.
- [sighing]
- [Hugo babbles]
[Gloria] Come here.
My boy.
Let's go. Come on.
Mariana, we gotta go. Okay, bye. Let's go.
I've got you now. I know.
- [shouting] No! My baby!
- [indistinct conversation]
- Please listen to her.
- Can you tell us more?
What did he look like? Ma'am, please.
[ethereal music continues]
[explosion booms]
