The Lodge (2016) s01e02 Episode Script

Reality Check

1 SKYE: He's super cute.
He's called Sean and we might've flirted a little bit.
That's Gil Matthews.
He wants to do a deal today.
By the time they figure out what's going on, the place will be ours.
This place can be fun again, we'll give it a makeover.
New life, new start.
Skye asked me about the other half of this photo.
You're gonna tell her? Maybe some things are better left secret.

Yes, no, maybe? Uh, all of them.
Okay.
You missed a spot.
Come on, give me a boost.
Isn't Sean coming to help out? Oh, not today.
Too much like real work.
(CHUCKLES) Oh I know how to fix that.
(BOTH LAUGH) Really mature.
You two seem to be getting on.
Oh, it's It's not like that.
But thanks for the awkwardness.
(BOTH CHUCKLE) I'm just fed up.
Can we try not to scare off the few guests we have left? This is for the guests.
I want live music, Dad.
What do you say, Kaylee? Me? Sing here? I can't.
Come on, let's take a photo.
Ben! This is for the website.
SKYE: I know we can turn the Lodge around.
Come on, makeover time.

JOSH: (OVER PHONE) Hi, Skye.
I can't believe Sean isn't here.
Instead of with his girlfriend? Right, 'cause you needed him for his interior design skills.
(LAUGHS MOCKINGLY) I am proud of you! (CHUCKLES) Of this.
Do you think they know I have no idea what I'm doing? Well, live music and cushions is a good place to start but people need to know that you're open for business.
I know.
I get it.
I probably should have ended with the "I'm proud of you" bit.
Probably.
So, how do I promote a lodge? I think we know a way.
The reality show.
DANIELLE: Sean.
You'll mess up your nice clothes.
And why do you have to keep that here? At my house? I told my dad I'd cut back on training and he thinks I'm with you.
It'll get him off my back.
I don't want you hanging out at that lodge.
That girl tried to steal the My Amazing Life show from me.
She did not.
And she asked you out! I've got to get in some practice.
Promise you won't talk to her? Cross my apron and hope to die.
(SCREAMS) Testing, one, two, three.
Nothing.
Who's this Lori you've just friended? Wasn't she with the reality show? Yeah, I, um I thought she was cute.
(FEEDBACK HUMS) What do you think about that? Noah, you can find girls cute.
(OVER PA) It's not like there's anything between us.
I, um I meant the amp levels.
Right.
Hey.
Hey.
People don't bother with these anymore.
I'm gonna chuck them.
BEN: I know where that is.
We sneak up there sometimes.
It was my mum's favorite spot in the world.
When she ran this place, it was amazing.
(SCOFFS) It is now.
The Lodge looks great and these shirts are way better than the last ones.
(CHUCKLES) Why are you standing here? I'm promoting the Lodge.
(CHUCKLES) Shouldn't you be holding a big sign or something? (VEHICLE APPROACHING) Think bigger.
Skye! Thanks for doing the show.
Let's get started.
They're filming you now? Yep, a whole series.
The girl who runs her own hotel.
It's a great story.
(CHUCKLES) Hi, Christina.
Your daughter's going to be this year's featured teen on the My Amazing Life show.
You again, what is this? It's all part of the plan, Dad.
We'll be filming Skye and the Lodge and making you all very famous.
The makeover's stunning, Skye.
Well, you're gonna need some kind of parental agreement.
Um, like this? We knew you'd say no.
Well, of course! We can't have guests followed around by cameras.
(PHONE RINGING) It's Josh, it's Josh, it's Josh, it's Josh! Did the TV crew arrive yet? I knew he'd be involved.
We'll be installing cameras here and there.
(SCOFFS) Public areas only, obviously.
Hi, Ben, right? Josh.
Could you hold me up so I can see? You wanted publicity.
Do you know how many people watch this show? You should have told me.
What? Just like you told me about selling the North Star? JOSH: Who's here, then? This is Kaylee.
Hey.
Hi, Josh.
Nice meeting you.
What's up? Noah.
Yo.
(CHUCKLES) Nice meeting you.
Dad, the crew will be staying here as paying guests.
People will watch the show and want to come.
It'll be great for business.
Well, just make sure that it's the Lodge that you're turning into a tourist attraction, and not yourself.
(DRILL WHIRRING) Thanks, Ben.
So, that went well.
Mmm.
It's a diary booth.
You just hit "Question" or "Confession," and share it with the world.
Cool, let's try this baby out.
So, uh, you work for the show? I'm a runner, for the holidays, for experience.
I wanna work in TV.
Are you two Uh, no, we've been friends forever.
That's a relief.
I think he's kinda cute.
Lori? Oh.
I better go.
Maybe catch you later? Hey, man.
Two, uh, to check in.
You've got a I'll get you a key.
Tell the boss we can easily sneak in and get it without getting spotted.
Uh, Kyle.
KYLE: Cameras.
Everywhere! Tricky.
See what happens when you're not here? I have my own TV show now.
SEAN: Nice.
We shouldn't really be talking.
I promised Danielle.
(SIGHS) What did I do? She's got it into her head that I like you or you like me, which is obviously not the case.
Obviously, yeah, right.
Yeah, right, so Danielle is so amazingly beautiful.
You two are like this perfect couple.
Yeah, no, she's She's great.
I am kind of scared of her a little bit, though.
Careful with that.
Oh! (CHUCKLES) CHRISTINA: Sorry, excuse me.
(EXHALES) I don't wanna be here when Danielle finds out they're filming Skye now.
So, texting her about it may not have been the best idea.
You didn't.
She's my friend.
(SIGHS) Come on.
(BOTH LAUGHING) Don't you even try to excuse this.
And as for you, you stole my show.
I told you she was after it.
It really wasn't like that.
And keep your hands off Sean.
Danielle, you're causing a scene.
Oh, perfect, let them see what they missed out on because I tell it how it is.
This is your new star, a girl that steals other girls' dreams.
Oh, and their boyfriends! That's really not fair.
Drop the little Miss Innocent act.
I'm not buying it.
Danielle.
You've got it all wrong.
Oh, have I really? Yeah, really.
Look.
She may have stolen your show, but Ben! She's not after Sean and Sean's not after Skye.
And you know this how? Because we're dating.
ALL: What? No way you two are dating.
Yeah.
Just over a week.
We, uh, we wanted to keep it a secret, right? Yeah.
(CHUCKLES) We're dating.
Surprise.
(CHUCKLES) So, can we all just agree this is not what you think it is and go inside? Uh, kiss her.
(SCOFFS) Excuse me? Prove it.
Kiss her.
Happy now? Hmm.
JOSH: You know, running off doesn't set the best example to your staff.
I can't believe that Ben just kissed me in front of everyone on My Amazing Life.
What? Spill! No, no, no, wait.
Spoiler alert.
I wanna watch it on TV.
And now I have to pretend I like Ben.
(CLEARS THROAT) So, your dad and a small camera crew are wondering where you are.
How did you know I'd be up here? Well, you said it was your mum's favorite spot.
I figured.
Skye, if I went too far Oh, no, no.
It got Danielle off my back.
I was thinking you could just dump me in a couple of days.
(CHUCKLES) That's if you can stand being my fake girlfriend for that long.
Scooch up.
We need to sell this.
What's that? J.
N.
are my mum's initials.
Jenny North.
Who's S.
J.
? Your dad's name's Ed.
(INDISTINCT CHATTER) Lot of new stuff around here to get used to.
Yeah.
(PHONE RINGING) (MACHINE WHIRRING) And keep your hands off Sean.
SEAN: Danielle, you're causing a scene.
Whatever we shoot gets edited here and goes live 24 hours later.
That's some good stuff.
I'm not Danielle.
I thought this would be about the North Star, not This.
Well, if you don't wanna be center of attention, give me something else the audience will love.
KAYLEE: You and me (KAYLEE VOCALIZING) How about a music night? You block the camera, I'll plug in the device.
(CLATTERING) Oops.
Well, this will cut off all the power.
Here she is! The headline act, opening at the Lodge tonight.
You're joking.
Absolutely not.
Kayles, it's the first night of the show and they want a big, dramatic finish and your vocals are insane.
So are you if you think I'd do it.
Come on, you're ready.
The tracks are all mixed, I just hit play and you sing into the microphone.
Just think about it, please.
With everyone watching? Well, like 10,000 people have already listened to your songs online.
Yeah, well, that's different.
They can't walk out or throw things.
And my songs are personal.
I'll be right there with you.
Like I always am.
I promise.
Just look into my eyes and sing to me.
And then I'll throw things at you.
(CHUCKLES) (DANCE MUSIC PLAYING) I advertised online.
You approve? Of this? Yeah.
Finding out you had a boyfriend, not so much.
Dad I know what Ben was doing.
I was gonna jump in meself and make things worse, probably.
Kayles, you look beautiful.
Yeah, I'm gonna be sick.
You're gonna be fine.
Come here.
(CHUCKLES) Music night is a great idea.
Good work, Skye.
Hey, you, seen my Granddad anywhere? (CHUCKLES) (LAUGHS) You realize she's just using you to publicize the Lodge, right? This could be good for me, too.
Guess we'll see.
Uh, hi, everyone.
Uh Thanks for coming to our first music night.
Uh, so, give it up for the Lodge's new star, Kaylee Marsden.
(CHEERING AND APPLAUSE) The whole Lodge is here, this is perfect.
We're ready to do this.
Check.
Flashlights.
Check.
Lucky pants.
Check.
(MUSIC PLAYING) Oh, oh, oh The wheels are spinning in my head I'm stumbling with every step I feel that beating in my chest Can you hear it? Am I crazy? Or maybe This might be something (CROWD EXCLAIMING) I'll get the power back on.
Need some help? (CROWD MURMURING) Oh! Meant to do that.
What's that? That's how these city girls think.
You embarrass yourself, big drama.
Skye gets to stay Miss Innocent.
Are you okay? It was supposed to be here, maybe he gave us the wrong info.
Kyle.
What? Check it out.
(BOTH IMITATE LIGHTSABERS) (PHONE CHIMES) Someone's down here.
Let's go.
Let's find the power for the upstairs lights.
What was all that about? They dropped this.
SKYE: Wanna finish that song with me? I only know three chords.
If anyone's gonna humiliate themselves up there, it's gonna be me.
You with me? Sure.
You ready? Yeah.
What's wrong? Nothing.
(STRUMMING) The wheels are spinning in my head I'm stumbling with every step I feel that beating in my chest Can you hear it? She's just like her mum.
Am I crazy? Losing her must have been really hard.
This might be something real The hardest.
Under the surface But life goes on.
It knows that the logic Do you feel what I feel? Good to hear.
Something about the two of us There's no denying There's no denying I'm hypnotized it's such a rush Don't wanna hide it Don't wanna hide it Each breath I'm trying to keep my cool Each step I don't know what to do Are there consequences in the truth? If you only knew Ooh, ooh Ooh, ooh, ooh (CHEERING AND APPLAUSE) Your first live performance.
Yeah, where were you? I was getting the power back on.
It's just flipping a switch.
(SIGHS) (CHUCKLES) Tonight was great, Skye.
You nailed it.
Thanks, Dad.
Are you still avoiding me? I thought we got past that.
I know you and Ben aren't dating.
Meaning? Meaning, Ben just got over his ex so maybe you shouldn't be using him to make your life easier on the show.
Hi.
Ugh, how dare he? You should have heard him.
I shouldn't be using Ben.
Take a breath.
One second, he wants to be my friend, now I'm someone who uses people.
Well, you know what? Maybe I don't wanna be his friend.
I should tell him.
I'm gonna do it.
Really, seriously, Skye? For your information, Sean, whether me and Ben date or pretend to date is absolutely none of your business.
Or is it? You tell me.
(SIGHS) (MACHINE WHIRRING) What am I doing in here? Chaos.
I always wondered if you wrote that song about you and me.
And if you did, singing it in front of everyone was really brave.
I just want you to know that I feel the same.
I always have.
I help out at the activity center.
You have two jobs? Come along tomorrow and I'll show you.
I'll take you on a climb.
It could damage the business.
We need to ask them to leave.
No, Dad! The reality show's what's gonna make this place great.
If you fancy earning some extra money, you could always come work at the lodge.
Deal.
What'd he say? Find the key.
