The Cleaning Lady (2022) s01e07 Episode Script

Our Father, Who Art in Vegas

1 Previously on The Cleaning Lady I saw men with guns guarding trucks.
Whatever they're shipping, they've got armed guards overseeing it.
If Arman is feeding us false information through Thony, we can use her to feed false information right back.
Marco? Deck the halls with boughs of holly Fa, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la 'Tis the season to be jolly Fa, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la Don we now our gay apparel Fa, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la Troll the ancient yuletide carol Fa, la, la, la, la La, la, la, la Yay! Wow.
Maligayang pistahan, anak.
Yay! Did you like celebrating all the holidays with Daddy? - Yeah.
- Yes? Okay, well, I think it's time to go to bed now.
- No.
- Well, yes, because we have to wait a little longer until your immune system gets better, Peanut.
But it won't take long now.
- Okay.
- Okay? How about one more song? Then he'll go back to his room.
You know the one I want to hear.
- Mm.
- Ah, come on.
I brought this karaoke machine all the way from Manila just back to hear you sing.
Back me up, áte.
CHRIS: Come on.
Come on, let's go.
- Yeah, okay.
- Okay.
Whoo! All right.
There's a saying old, says that love is blind Still we're often told, seek and ye shall find So I'm going to seek a certain lad I've had in mind Looking everywhere, haven't found him yet He's the big affair I cannot forget Only man I ever think of with regret I'd like to add his initial To my monogram Tell me, where is the shepherd For this lost lamb? There's somebody I'm longing to see I hope that he turns out to be Someone to watch Over me I'm a little lamb who's lost in the wood I know I could always be good To one who'll watch Over me Although he may not Be the man Some girls think of as handsome To my heart he carries The key Won't you tell him please to put on some speed Follow my lead, oh, how I need Someone to watch Over me Someone to watch Over Me He's so happy you're here.
I am too.
I missed you, mahal.
We missed you too.
So this is it, huh? The only private room in the house.
Mm? What is it? Hm? We haven't been alone together in forever.
What's wrong? Nothing.
Before you left, things were getting better.
We were working things out.
We were still sleeping in separate beds.
Not all the time.
I have to ask, where did you get the money to bribe the embassy official, for the gifts? So that's what this is about? Just answer me.
I got my boss to give me an advance on one of my commissions, okay? Not gambling? Hm? Why do you always assume the worst of me? You either trust me or you don't.
I'm sorry.
I have to take this.
Who the hell's calling you at this hour? It's work.
Thanks for coming.
The place looks like new.
Are you hurt? Eh, I must have been grazed.
Let me take a look.
It's not too deep.
Just so you know, he was gonna rat out to Hayak about the guns I took from him.
Better if I don't know.
You should be fine.
So how are you? I'm okay.
Um, we got some responses from the flyers we put up looking for liver donors.
Um, that woman from my Buddhist temple reached out, so we're gonna meet her tomorrow.
So why don't you look happy then? Because without insurance, we can't afford any of the transplant centers.
Look, I'm working on a big deal.
- Arman, no.
- If if this deal comes through, I can easily pay for Luca's surgery.
It's too much.
None of this would have happened if you wouldn't have helped feed information to the Feds.
All right, I couldn't have done this without you.
This is for Luca.
I'm in too deep now.
I'm gonna have to talk to my husband.
He's here.
His visa came through.
Well, let me know what you two decide.
Carlos will take you home.
What are you doing up? Where have you been? You've been gone for hours.
Marco's been asking questions, and I had to cover for you.
Are you gonna tell the truth? 'Cause I I won't keep lying.
It's complicated.
I get it.
But he's your husband.
Unless you have another reason for keeping this from him.
Marco came all this way to be with you and Luca, and you act like as if you don't even want him here.
It's just not a good time, Fi.
Why? Huh? I mean, with everything going on with Luca, isn't this the time you need him most? Are you having an affair with him, this guy you work for? No.
Just talk to me, Thony.
Arman has been helping me with Luca for weeks now.
When he had adenovirus, I didn't take him to the hospital.
Arman took us to their private doctor, and he paid for it.
He just really cares about Luca.
But we're not sleeping together.
But whatever is going on, figure it out, because the last thing I need is to be caught in between my best friend and my brother.
Ah! Ow.
Well, hello.
When's the last time you saw your own bed? Mm.
I don't know, two, maybe three days ago.
Why? You know, when we were partners, the only reason you'd pull an all-nighter is 'cause you were in the doghouse with Colleen.
Yeah, well, now I'm not in any house with her, so there goes that theory.
So what's all this? Okay.
Well, you know I had that hunch that Arman moved something before the raid? Well, here he is pulling out of the Barsamian depot with two semitrucks.
Check out the time stamp.
Four hours before our guys moved in.
That's right.
And this is them turning west on Blake Avenue.
And this is them getting onto Highway 95.
Wait a second.
Did you Yes, ma'am, I did piece together the whole route using traffic cam footage.
Now, I tracked them all the way up to a rural road near the Paiute reservation.
Now, there are only five properties on that road.
We got to go check them out, see where they're unloading.
Slow your roll, Garrett.
You get an A for effort, but this is all circumstantial.
Yeah, but we've suspected for months the Barsamians are using their trucks to move illegal goods.
Now, whatever they are trafficking is just sitting on one of these five farms.
We're still going to need a warrant.
And after Melon-gate, we're gonna need more than just a hunch.
I'll keep digging.
Get some sleep, Miller.
And shower.
It's smelling a little loud in here.
So, Dara, my wife told me you saw our flyer at temple.
Thank you so much for considering us.
Oh, well, the picture of Luca on that flyer He's adorable.
And even with my student loans, I could really use that $20,000 to get through my last year of college.
Well, we're really glad you're here.
Honestly, you were the only match we found for Luca, so thank you.
Do you have any questions for us? Yeah.
Where's the surgery taking place? Oh, we're still, um, working out those details.
But but you mentioned Luca needed the surgery right away.
We're narrowing down our options, but we'll know soon.
That's Luca.
Would you like to meet him? Hey, Luca.
This is our friend, Dara.
I I like all your planets.
Which one's your favorite? Saturn.
Luca's gonna be the first Cambodian-Filipino astronaut to fly to Saturn.
Isn't that right, Peanut? Well, maybe I can help with that.
Thank you so much.
What do you want? I'm busy.
25 years, single malt.
You know, I've been waiting for a good reason to open this.
Now you're trying to wine and dine me like I'm one of your clients? I'm making moves, Nadia, against Hayak.
What are you talking about? You know how the Feds made those arrests at the club? I used that as an excuse to move Hayak's guns All of 'em.
And Hayak doesn't know this? He knows that I moved them.
He just doesn't know where.
And I found a buyer who wants the entire inventory.
He's got no connections to Hayak.
So this is another plan of yours.
I'm selling Hayak's guns without him knowing, and then you and I walk away with $6 million.
Oh, great.
And then Hayak finds out and kills us both.
You remember that island that we flew over years ago on the way to Argentina? Yeah.
What if we took this money and just disappeared? We could start a new life there.
And you know how far 6 million can go in a place like that.
We could build a house on the beach.
We could run a high-end resort with ocean views.
We could finally go legit.
Are you sure about this, Armando? Hayak has eyes everywhere.
I'll handle that.
I'm talking about taking back what's ours.
About finally getting what we deserve.
Now, to do that, I'm gonna need your help.
This buyer that I found, he's, um He's a bit of a wild card.
What do you need me to do? Mr.
McPherson, welcome to Sin City.
Hey, Arman, call me Noah.
You must be Nadia.
You sure know how to make an entrance.
Yeah, I converted her to biofuel.
That's the first carbon-neutral helicopter in North America.
The wave of the future.
You got that right.
Well, it's good to finally meet you, Noah.
Let's get this show on the road.
Doesn't she handle beautifully? I'll say.
So how much for the full inventory? 6 1/2 mill.
That's way above market, Arman.
Demand's never been higher for these weapons.
The pandemic's created supply line shortages everywhere.
Hey, but if you need to think about it, go ahead.
I do have other buyers lined up.
I don't know how much time we got left.
I know people think survivalists are crackpots, but future wars, they're not gonna be fought over religion and politics.
They're gonna be fought over the air we breathe, the water we drink.
So true.
- Yeah.
- Maybe we should build a bunker like Noah's, babe.
Oh, I'll give you the plans to mine in Chile.
It's entirely off the grid Solar powered, got an independent water supply.
But what good is it if you can't defend it? That's a good point.
How about 5 1/2 mill? All right, I'll do it for six, final offer.
I'll even throw in a box of Cubans for good measure.
Well, there's no smoking in the bunker, Arman.
Let me fire this RPG, and you got yourself a deal.
Yeah, by all means.
That was my car.
I just did the world a favor, man.
That was a gas guzzler.
Don't worry about tonight, okay? That's not your color.
Fi and I were just talking.
We should go out to celebrate Dara tonight.
- Um - What is it? I just checked on Luca.
His eyes and tongue are yellow.
He's jaundiced.
Oh, no.
So how much time does he have? At most, couple weeks.
Did you talk to your Pinay nurse friends about where to do the surgery? Yeah, but I mean, none of them knew of a place where you can do one off the books.
So what else can we do? One of them mentioned Mexico.
Apparently, they have clinics that do cheaper transplants.
That can't be safe.
No, actually it is.
Mexico is known for its medical tourism.
But once we cross the border, we We can never come back.
So? We just go home after.
Um, there might be a quicker option.
Since we have a donor, we could go to a transplant center here.
You said that would cost $300,000 or $400,000.
But I know someone who could pay for it.
I'm gonna put this away.
Thony, what's going on? Um, a few months ago, there was an underground fight at one of the warehouses I clean An illegal fight.
The man in charge of it thought I did a good job, so he offered me more work.
What kind of work? I clean for him, that's all.
You clean for a criminal? Is he dangerous? What exactly does he do? I don't know.
But he's been helping Luca get medical care for the past few weeks, and now he's offered to pay for the surgery.
Any man who offers a woman that kind of money is only after one thing.
Marco, that's not what this is.
He just wants to help.
And he has the money.
Is that where you got the $20,000? Yes.
So you've already taken his money? It's for Luca's transplant, Marco.
So you're okay with a criminal paying for our son? What other option do we have? Hey.
How you doing? Uh, well, I think I got a little turned around.
You know where the Madison farm is? Can't help you, man.
Okay, well, what about that farm over there? Huh? Mr.
Madison's gonna give me a real good deal on a tractor.
Could that be it? Don't know.
All right.
All right.
Hey, no problem.
Thank you.
Hey, you have a blessed day.
Check all the perimeters.
Make sure you check the back gate, all right? You got it.
We're good! All of this is for that ass who blew up my car? You worry too much.
Stop worrying.
I'll get you a new car.
This deal with Noah's gonna make us rich.
And we're gonna need an accurate count of all the inventory, all right? It ships out tomorrow at 5:00.
5:00, you serious? Gonna take us all night, boss.
Noah needs an accurate count.
What, are you gonna help me? You're getting lazy on me.
Just call Hector.
Hey, Hector.
Hector! Dude, don't make me come find you.
How long have you known about Thony's boss, hm? Not long.
You think we should take the money to pay for Luca's surgery? Look, I know this is hard.
For almost a year, I'm stuck in the Philippines, unable to do anything to help Luca.
And now some stranger is offering to save him, and I'm just supposed to be okay with that? Marco, don't do this.
She could have sent me money to come here weeks ago, but she didn't, so what does that say, huh? Is she sleeping with this guy? No, she isn't.
And stop getting all worked up, okay? I know.
I do it too.
But that's how we end up doing crap we regret later.
Thony's the one who's involved with the criminal, and you're worried about what I'm gonna do? The only thing I'm gonna regret is letting this happen.
Marco, stop! You you think everything has been easy for her? Everything Thony's done, she's done for your son.
And you need to do the same.
If if you want my advice, just put your pride aside and hey, take the offer.
Got your text.
What's up? Besides your feet on a desk that I eat off of.
Guess where I found these.
Where? Oh, on one of the farms near the Paiute reservation.
Arman Morales has stored enough guns there to start World War III.
Damn it, you went in without a warrant.
Um, yeah.
But now I know exactly how the Barsamians fund their empire.
Is that stupid hat you're wearing cutting off oxygen? Look, I overheard Arman talking to one of his lackeys.
He's selling the entire inventory to some guy named Noah.
Who's that? Not sure.
I'm checking with the ATF to see if they can get us an ID, but this deal is going down today at 5:00.
All right? And once that happens, I mean, these guns will be in the wind.
Well, what are we supposed to do, Miller? Everything you just told me, you obtained illegally.
We can't use any of this.
If we can stop the deal, that'll buy us some time for you to get us a warrant.
And how do you think you're gonna stop a deal that's happening today? Melons.
What? Look, Arman used Thony to give us a bad tip.
Who's to say we can't play that game of telephone in reverse? Hey.
So Luca is getting sicker.
So I talked to my husband, and if your offer still stands Yeah, of course.
I'll have the money soon.
Thank you.
I don't know how I'll ever repay you.
Ah, Thony, you don't owe me a thing.
You're a big part in how I'm pulling off this deal.
And once Luca has his surgery, you're free to go.
What? This is my last score.
And after this, I'm getting out.
I'm starting over.
I just I just need to speak to my wife.
I see her right there.
No, no, it's okay.
Oh no, this is my husband.
I-I see her.
She's back there.
Sir, I told you this club is members-only.
I told him I was working for you.
Marco, what are you doing here? - I came to meet your boss.
- You can't be here.
I want to know who this guy is and what he wants with my wife.
- Marco, stop! - Excuse me.
- Is there a problem here? - No.
So you're Thony's boss? Yeah, Arman.
- You must be? - Thony's husband.
What do you think you're gonna get for the money you're giving my wife? Hmm? Nothing.
Luca's a good kid.
I know that.
But what's in it for a guy like you? A guy like me? Yeah.
A criminal.
Okay, Marco, I told you, he just wants to help.
Look, if I was a father in your shoes, I'd take help in whatever form it came, even from a guy like me.
We'll talk about this at home.
You know, you should listen to your wife.
Armando, answer me.
Who the hell was that? That was Thony's husband.
Why was he so angry with you? Thony's son, Luca, needs a liver transplant.
They can't afford it, so I offered to pay.
You what? Nadia, we're gonna have plenty of money once this deal's done.
You said the money from this deal was for us.
We're gonna need every penny to start a new life, and you just want to give it away to strangers? Who is this cleaning lady to you? - This isn't about Thony.
- Don't lie to me, Armando.
You have feelings for her.
Obviously, her husband thinks so too.
You know what, Nadia? Jealousy is a bad look on you.
Hey, listen.
This is an opportunity for us to finally do something good.
Ah, Dios mío.
She's the reason? All this talk about doing good and going legit.
Yeah, it all started when you met her.
No, I've been thinking about this for a very long time.
Do you really think throwing money at some sick little boy makes you a good man? You might think you wanna go legit, but you love this life.
The status, the money, the power.
I know you, Armando.
You'll never be satisfied as a common man.
Think about that before you throw away everything we have.
- Hi.
- Hi.
Oh, hi.
I got hit in the eye with a ball.
I'm sorry.
But you caught the next one, didn't you, buddy? - Come on, give it to me.
- Boom.
And after we celebrate with some ice cream, I'm taking him back to his mom's.
We're going to Legoland.
Ah, yeah, not today, Sammy.
Saturday, but it's not with me.
That's with mommy's new friend.
- Brad.
- Right.
" So how you doing? I'm great.
I need to get back to work.
Yeah, no, I know, but listen.
There's a gun buyer in town named Noah.
Word is, he and your boy, Arman, have been cooking up a deal that is going down today.
Now we have eyes on them both, of course, but just in case, I need you to text me when he leaves the club today, all right? That's it? Just text you when he leaves? Yeah.
That's it.
Bye, Sammy.
Congrats on your catch.
How the hell did they find out? I don't know.
Garrett just said that you were selling guns to a guy named Noah today.
And what what exactly did they ask you to do? To text him as soon as you leave the club.
They're watching me.
They're watching me.
They're probably watching Noah too.
Thony, I'm gonna have to call off this deal.
And I I can't afford the surgery without it.
How soon does Luca need it? Soon.
But that's okay.
I I'll find another way.
No, uh, amazing.
Hey, great work.
Russo, wait up.
Wait up, wait up.
- Guess what.
- What? My plan worked.
The surveillance team I put on the farm just told me no guns have left.
The deadline has passed.
We stopped the deal.
So reverse telephone worked.
Oh, like a charm.
Now we just got to work on that warrant.
It can wait.
Wait a minute.
What? Why? If Arman Morales knows you're watching him, he won't be able to move anything tonight, right? - Yeah.
- So olly, olly, oxen free.
Let's grab dinner.
Have you been to Bluey's Tavern? No.
There's a blues band there I like.
And if you come with me, I don't have to talk to anyone.
Eh, well, except me.
We won't have to talk either, because they have human-sized Jenga.
It's no Legoland, but it's something.
Oh, drunk human-sized Jenga beats Legoland any day of the week, huh? Marco? Is Marco home? What's wrong? I need to talk to him.
I don't think I'm gonna get the money for the transplant.
We might have to go to Mexico.
Chris, Jaz, have you heard from him? - Nope.
- Not since this morning.
Did, um did something happen after you told him about Arman? He came to the club.
Arman spoke to him.
He got upset.
And then I was gonna talk to him when I got home.
- No answer.
- Okay, no.
Now now I'm worried.
I haven't heard from him in hours.
He said he was just gonna go to the store.
This this could be bad, Thony.
Damn it! What? The money.
The $20,000 for Luca's donor.
It's gone.
