The Cleaning Lady (2022) s01e08 Episode Script

Full On Gangsta

1 Previously on The Cleaning Lady Marco? We've got some responses we put up looking for liver donors.
I could really use that $20,000 to get through my last year of college.
We're really glad you're here.
You were the only match.
We're gonna unload these guns up at that farm.
What about Hayak? I'll tell him once things cool down.
I'm making moves, Nadia.
I'm selling Hayak's guns without him knowing.
You and I walk away with $6 million.
There was an underground fight.
The man in charge of it thought I did a good job.
He's offered to pay for the surgery.
So you've already taken his money? You know I had that hunch that Arman moved something before the raid? If they're watching me, they're probably Noah too.
Thony, I'm gonna have to call off this deal.
I can't afford the surgery without it.
Did you talk to your Pinay nurse friends about where to do the surgery? One of them mentioned Mexico.
Once we cross the border, we can never come back.
It's $20,000.
It's gone.
I'm sure he'll be home soon.
No more bets.
Don't tell me what to do.
Get off me! Get off! Where are you, Marco? Excuse me, sir.
I'm sorry, okay? I was only trying to help Luca.
And I was.
I was up over 100 Gs before I had a bad run.
You're an addict, Marco.
Even if you had won all that money, I wouldn't want it.
Oh, but you have no problem taking money from a gangster, do you? I'm Luca's father.
I'm not gonna have some other man taking care of my kid, or my wife.
This isn't about Arman.
You sure about that? Don't put the blame on me, okay? This is about you and your gambling issues.
I'm so sick of constantly being judged by you.
You're not always right, you know? I was right about one thing.
It was a mistake for you to come to Vegas.
I think you should go back home.
No, no, no, no, I won't be separated from my son again.
Do you think you're helping Luca? Hmm? You stole $20,000 from your son.
I can't trust you anymore.
That's 25 grand.
I saved it for Luca.
Marco's sleeping it off in my room.
What he did was wrong, but at least he kept the money for Luca.
Isn't that progress? It's not just about the money.
It's about who he's become.
Look, I wanna slap some sense into him too, but maybe he just needs our support right now.
Well, that doesn't help, Fi.
You don't know how bad it got before we came here.
We almost lost our home because he gambled away the money for the mortgage and didn't tell me.
Our car got repossessed.
Our friends stopped talking to us because he borrowed money and never paid them back.
Each time, he begged for another chance, only to do it again.
So that's it? You're just gonna give up on him? All I can think of is Luca right now.
If I don't find a way to get him a liver transplant, he'll die.
So Marco, our marriage, I can't think about it right now.
You're letting the ATF take over the gun raid, huh? The F stands for "firearms.
" This is sort of their bag.
Yeah, but if they roll there like a bunch of good ol' boys on a beer run, my case goes up in smoke.
Hey, look, I need more time, all right? I need more time to link the guns to Arman and the Barsamians, or I've got nothing.
Look, these interagency pissing matches aren't easy to navigate.
- My hands are tied.
- Come on, Katherine.
I've been working this case for months.
I need it to go my way.
- I'll see what I can do.
- Yes.
All right.
Okay, look, all I need is enough time to get Thony to lure Arman to the farmhouse, and then ba-bam, busted.
Do you have a minute? Yeah.
So there's a hospital in Mexico that will do Luca's surgery for $40,000.
It won't be a problem to get there, but coming back You'd get picked up at the border.
Could you talk to your friend Bosco, see if he'd be willing to smuggle us over? I'm not comfortable with you doing that.
No, traveling with coyotes is not safe.
It's the only option there is.
Will your husband be with you? No.
There's something else.
I only have 25,000, and 20,000 of that is for Dara, Luca's liver donor.
I said I'd cover Luca's surgery.
Even without your deal going through? Well, with the Feds watching me, I can't move forward on anything.
Things are gonna be a little bit tight for a while, but I can cover that.
The FBI can't watch you in Mexico, can they? Hey, you're right.
They can't.
Maybe I can still do the gun deal down there.
If you could be ready by morning, I could take us there and back by jet.
The customs guy at the hangar is in our back pocket.
I don't even know how to thank you.
Consider this my way of thanking you, right? This might be the answer to both our problems.
I think I know how we can still make it to Curaçao.
- Spare me your empty promises.
- C'mon, Nadia.
Please just just listen to me.
All right, we could still make this deal with Noah in Mexico.
The Feds don't have jurisdiction down there.
- But they've got friends there.
- So do I.
I could fly down there under the radar, line things up with my old connections, and funnel the guns across the border.
You think Noah will agree to that? His bunker's in Chile.
It's easier to move the guns from Mexico to South America.
Babe, we can still make millions here.
We can get what we deserve.
What about the cleaning lady? Are you still gonna give her $1/2 million of our money? Come here.
Everything we make from the sale will be for our future.
We could disappear.
We could start new lives, if that's what you still want.
I'll pack a bag for Mexico.
Yeah, but I need you to stay here and manage the club so everything appears normal to Hayak.
What if he asks where you are? You tell him my aunt died and I had to help with the arrangements.
Can you do that for us, babe? Claro, Armando.
Just be careful.
You too.
He's my son too.
I'm not gonna let you take him to Mexico without me.
He needs me.
I'm his father.
Then act like it.
Put his needs first.
Luca needs a stable, calm environment to heal.
I can't risk you jeopardizing that.
He's been through enough.
I think we both have.
You just don't wanna make things uncomfortable - for your boss.
- Come on.
Look who's ready for his big adventure.
It's Luca.
Oh, yeah.
Goodbye, kiddo.
Be brave for Daddy, okay? Remember, anak, we're always connected right here You better make it back, all right? All right, Peanut.
- Get the bag? - Mm-hmm.
You ready? I'll call you.
What if that's the last time I ever hold my son? Wow.
Talk about a ride.
Okay, Peanut.
No, I want Daddy.
Oh, my love.
We're gonna call Daddy soon.
Okay? I promise.
Hey, little man.
How would you feel about flying in your very own spaceship, huh? What do you say? - Yeah! - Yeah? Okay, let's go.
- Come here.
- Up.
Oh, let's go.
All right, let's do this.
- Ah, buenos días.
- Buenos días.
Welcome to Prestige Wellness.
Right this way, señor.
This is a hospital? It's the hotel that services the hospital.
Well, feels like a vacation to me.
Although a seriously weird vacation.
Hey, don't worry, Peanut.
Come here, come here, come here.
Don't be scared, okay? It's just a giant Band-aid.
You're all checked in.
I'm just gonna go take care of some business.
You okay getting settled? Yeah.
Right this way, señorita.
- Let me grab that for you.
- Gracias.
Okay, now we're gonna go get our room, yeah? As you'll see, we have the finest facilities of any medical tourism establishment in Mexico.
Oh, that's really nice, but I'm just here to get surgery for my son.
Of course.
But we believe in a holistic approach to healing.
Serenity of the mind equals harmony in the body.
Don't you think? Well, it's been a long time since I've had serenity of the mind.
Then you should partake in our full-service spa.
And you'll definitely want to check out our organic juice bar.
Are most of the procedures here elective? Not all, but a good portion of our clients do come for face-lifts, tummy tucks, chin augmentation.
We cater to a very prestigious clientele.
I thought it was mostly life-saving procedures for people who can't afford treatment in the U.
I assure you, Mrs.
De La Rosa, underneath all the perks is a top-notch hospital with renowned doctors in their fields.
Our priority is patient care.
I promise, your son is in good hands.
This way.
Beautiful as always.
Surprised to see you here so late.
Can I get you a drink? We just got a case of an exquisite Bordeaux.
No, thank you.
I've been looking for Arman.
I haven't been able to reach him all day.
He got a call early this morning.
His aunt passed away.
So he went on behalf of his father to help with the arrangements.
I'm so sorry to hear that.
Which aunt? Eduardo's sister, Ana.
Well, I'm sure they appreciate him being there.
You should have gone with him.
Well, we thought I should stay here, make sure things run smoothly.
Thank you.
Please, when you speak with him, give him my condolences.
And if there is anything I can do to help, don't hesitate.
That will mean so much to him.
Thank you, Hayak.
No, thank you.
I'm so sorry.
Just in time to join me for a drink.
- Sounds great.
- Hey, dos.
Luca and Dara are sleeping, so I thought, why not? - Would you like to sit down? - Yes, thank you.
Anything else for the beautiful couple? No, gracias.
Sí, claro que sí.
- Should I be worried? - Oh, yeah.
So are you looking forward to going back home after all this is over? I don't know if the Philippines is home anymore.
And what about Vegas? So much has happened in Vegas I wanna forget.
Well, not everything, I hope.
No, not everything.
You hear that? You have to dance to "Reloj.
" - Oh, I have to? - You have to dance.
No, no, no, no.
I'm not much of a dancer.
What do they say? Two left feet.
It's one of the most beloved songs in all of Mexico.
Come on.
Trust me.
Follow my lead.
It looks like you don't have two left feet after all, huh? What does it say? It says, uh "Clock, don't count the hours because I'm going crazy.
" "She'll leave forever when the morning comes again.
" Good night.
What the hell? Get off my property before I report you for trespassing.
Look, I know I'm public enemy number one in your book.
All right, what I did What I did with the ICE raid was wrong.
Do you even care that Gabby's kids have to grow up without their mother now? We have a word for people like you in my country.
Yeah, that's pretty much how I feel about myself these days.
Look, I know I know it doesn't fix anything, but I am sorry.
I am.
I'm just looking for Thony.
She's been ignoring my calls.
Thony's working.
I know she's not working, Fiona.
Just tell me where she is.
I wanna make sure she's okay.
That's it.
If Thony wants to talk to you, she will.
Get out of my house.
- Get out.
- All right.
Hey, Jeff, my man, I need a favor.
Yeah, I got an informant in the wind.
I need you to track the location of their phone.
Yeah, someone's waiting for you.
He's right over there.
- Hello.
- Hi.
I'm Nadia.
I understand you were inquiring about membership? I mean, who wouldn't want to join this club, right? I know.
Which is why membership is by invitation or referral.
Only certain kinds of people are the right fit.
Yeah, I can see that.
- So Mr - Miller.
- Mr.
- Yes.
How did you hear about us? Well You have quite the reputation with the people in my office.
What kind of work do you do? I'm a special agent with the FBI.
- Wow.
- Yeah.
That must be interesting.
Fascinating, actually.
We consider all our members to be special, but we don't have any special agents.
Well, the dues here are pretty steep, and crime pays better than crime-fighting.
Well, maybe you're in the wrong line of work, Mr.
Ah, you're not the first person to tell me that.
Look, I'm not gonna waste your time, Ms.
Morales, so I'm just gonna get to the point.
There's a woman who works here as a cleaner.
Thony de la Rosa.
Do you know her? Well, we have lots of cleaners who work here.
Yeah, of course.
Of course.
But I'm curious about this cleaning lady because she's in Mexico right now, and I'd love to know why.
I have no idea.
Why would I? Because I think she might be there with your husband.
I think you're mistaken.
Am I? Hmm? What I think is that we're not the right club for you, Mr.
Maybe check out the YMCA.
That's good.
Thank you.
Can I help you? I called Arman's father to tell him how sorry I am about his sister.
It turns out they just celebrated her 70th birthday.
So tell me, Nadia, where is Arman? Yeah, once Luca's surgery is over, we'll have a little celebration.
How soon till he can have some ice cream? I don't know, but I'll be able to have a margarita right away.
Is everything okay? There's an emergency back home.
I have to go.
Oh, but how will we get back to the U.
without you? I'll come back and take you home.
I just have to take care of this business in Vegas first.
You're almost through this.
- You wanted to see me? - Thony, hi.
Please come in.
We've had to reschedule your son's surgery.
We'll get him back on the books as soon as another spot is available.
No, no, no.
This is unacceptable.
My son my son needs a liver now to survive.
It's just a temporary delay.
We paid for the surgery already.
And you'll get it.
We just had another transplant that took priority.
Who's a bigger priority than a critically ill five-year-old boy? Thony, we take a lot of factors into consideration.
It's not easy.
Luca was bumped because someone else paid more money.
Is that it? I can't share details about our clientele.
Oh, don't you mean patients? So you're really gonna give some rich person the surgery first? Even if it means that my son could die? Well, I'm terribly sorry.
But don't worry.
We'll get back to you soon.
Is it time, Mommy? Not yet, Peanut.
The hospital changed the rules, so we have to wait.
I hate the rules.
I hate them too, Peanut.
Close the curtain.
What are you gonna do? Don't worry.
It's not gonna hurt him.
It's just gonna make him sleep.
I'm making my own rules.
What is it? What's wrong? He's encephalopathic.
His liver is in complete failure.
If you don't do the transplant now, he won't make it.
We don't have the surgeons.
They're already at work with the other team.
- Then I'll do it.
- No - I'm a surgeon.
- I'm sorry, we can't do that.
Those are my credentials from Manila.
I'm a cardiothoracic surgeon.
Give me an operating room and another surgeon, and I can do the transplant myself.
The hospital would never allow it.
It's unethical to let a surgeon operate on a family member.
You think giving a surgery to someone with more money is ethical? Listen to me now.
If my son dies, you don't wanna answer to the man I came here with.
He comes to Mexico to do business with a certain organization.
And I don't think he'd appreciate the way you're treating my son.
Nurse, we'll set up an O.
and prep for surgery STAT.
Yes, sir.
That's full-on gangsta.
He's ready, Doctor.
You sure you can do this? Scalpel.
Good job, Doctor.
Nadia told me everything, Arman.
I'm very disappointed.
How could you lie to me about your aunt like that? I felt horrible for you and your family, only to find out it was so you could sneak off and have an affair with the cleaning lady.
You made a fool of me.
So is this true, Arman? Yeah.
You're a coward.
I'm surprised by you, Arman, leaving a magnificent woman like this.
Well, it's not my business.
Trust is everything, Arman.
Nadia Anything yet? I know you think you're being loyal to Arman, but you should remember, Arman works for me, so your loyalty belongs to me.
What is Arman doing in Mexico? Okay, fine.
Go get Nadia.
Let's see how long she will last in this chair.
He went to Mexico to sell guns.
My guns? Where are my guns now? Where are my guns now? In a barn near the Paiute reservation on Highway 95.
If you're lying to me I'm not a liar.
All the inventory is there.
Thank you for telling me the truth when Arman did not.
Where is Arman? Where is Arman? You wanted to see me? The ATF caved.
Since you found out Arman is in Mexico, they'll give you a little more time.
Sweet! I knew you had some magic up your sleeve.
I called in some favors, but if you can't figure out a way to get Arman or Hayak to that barn, they're gonna move in.
They don't wanna lose the guns.
I owe you one.
You owe me way more than one, Miller.
Come on.
True, true, true, true.
Well, it's way past quitting time.
Oh, okay.
Well, if I knew that you had that in your desk, I would have come around here more often.
I tried Sober October once.
I couldn't make it past the third day.
Yeah, well, October's a rough month.
- Don't be so hard on yourself.
- Cheers.
Yeah, it's just part and parcel of the job, huh? That and a high divorce rate.
Hey, you had a shot, and then you blew it.
- Come on.
- You had it all.
A wife, kids, respect at the bureau.
The kind of life I had to give up just to stay in the game.
And you still managed to screw it all up.
What are you What are you doing? If this is your idea of cocktail hour conversation, well, that explains That explains a lot of your issues.
Sometimes, you make it really hard to like you.
You like me? I'm not gonna lie.
It was much more fun to break rules with you back in the day than to monitor you now.
Yeah, it was pretty fun.
But it was a long time ago.
That it was.
Good night, Katherine.
It was the hardest thing I've ever had to do.
But I think he's finally gonna be okay, Fi.
I'm I'm so happy for you.
You've worked so hard for this.
Uh, there's something else I have to tell you.
That FBI guy was here.
Garrett came to our home? Yeah, he came looking for you.
I think he knows you're not in Vegas.
Be careful, Thony.
Thank you, Fi.
Please, Nadia just Please open the door for me.
This whole time, I thought you were going to Mexico for us, for our future.
- Look, I was doing that, Nadia - Were you even there for the gun deal at all, or were you lying about that too? I was doing that.
I didn't finish setting things up out there because I came back for you.
Don't sound so happy about it.
All this time, I've kept things sexy and fun, and you still had to sneak around with her.
- A cleaning lady of all people.
- Nadia, please Do you know how embarrassing it was to find that out from that sleazy FBI guy? - What? From who? - Don't change the subject.
It was humiliating.
Look, Nadia.
Hey, listen to me.
I only let Hayak think I was having an affair to keep us from getting killed.
It's not true, all right? Thony went with me to Mexico 'cause her son needed surgery.
- That's it.
That's all this is about.
- Right.
I didn't sleep with her, Nadia.
I swear to you.
Even if you didn't, you've lied about her over and over again.
Why? This isn't about helping her kid.
You love the way she looks at you when you do these things for her.
When you are her hero.
Admit it.
Nadia Get out! Go.
Go, and don't come back.
Thony, what is it? My FBI contact went to Fiona's house looking for me.
Do you think he knows anything about Mexico? Yeah, he knows.
Arman? Arman.
