This Fool (2022) s02e07 Episode Script

The Big Deal

[funky hip-hop music playing]
VINCE: Do you remember our old
English teacher, Big Booty Judy?
[all groan]
JULIO: Big-ass nalgas.
Whatever happened to her?
She died.
[Julio sighs]
Yeah, I guess that ass finally quit.
- JULIO: Oh, shit.
- What the fuck?
JULIO: Dawg, what the fuck happened?
I went to go see Slayer last month
and I got my teeth knocked
out in the pit. [laughs]
Dawg, you're 33 and you're
still getting in the pit?
Fuck that, I can't do
standing-only shows anymore.
My knees need seats.
Hey, you wanna hit that, Julio?
Nah, I'm good with this.
Damn, all healthy and shit?
VINCE: Hey, respect.
I'm not touching anything either.
Christina broke up on my ass again
'cause I keep getting fucked up.
I'm trying to win her back,
so your boy's on good behavior.
Man, you've been saying
that shit since high school.
Fuck you, bitch.
Hey, Julio, you and
Maggie back together yet?
Nah, fool, we broke
up for real this time.
- Ohh.
- See, fool, I told you.
You owe me 20 bucks.
[Felipe chuckles]
What the fuck? You
fools were betting on me?
Shady-ass fools.
Alright, I gotta go pick up my kid.
Anyone wanna hit this before I go?
- No, fool, I'm good.
- Thanks, man.
- Fuck it, let me take one hit.
- [all groan]
Nah, nah, nah, I'm not gonna
get cross-faded, relax, alright?
EFRAIN: You're relapsing.
- Yeah.
- EFRAIN: Bro.
I'ma keep it cute.
JULIO: Come on.
- We've been here before, man.
[theme music playing]
Hey, let's have fuckin' fun tonight.
- [coughing]
- Hey, take it easy, you fuckin' psycho.
[Vince sighs]

[rock music playing]

MAN: Hey, fool, what's up?

I'm pregnant so I gotta go first.
Oh, shit, yeah, my bad, go for it.

[door opens]
[door closes]
- That bitch isn't pregnant.
- [scoffs]
- How do you know?
- She had wine lips, trust me.
Damn, I got played, huh?

Should we kill her?
Yeah, maybe bury her
ass out in Palmdale?
Can we put her in your
trunk? I got my ex in mine.
Yeah, we can get some acid
and then melt them in a barrel.
Turn their body fat into soap.
Then lather ourselves up
with it, get that smooth skin.
Sounds like a spa day.
- Who do you know here?
- I work with Angie, she dragged me out.
This party's kinda lame, though.
Yeah, it is.
Why the fuck are we here?
Probably because we hate ourselves.
You're right, I do fuckin' hate myself.
Yeah, me, too.
I heard you guys
talking about killing me.
Bitch, did your baby hear us, too?

Mind if I go first? I have diarrhea.
Oh, yeah, sure.
I'm fucking with you, I
just wanted to go first.
I'm Teresa.
I'm Julio.

And so low-key, these
fools always look to me
as like a mentor type of
figure, you know what I mean?
I was almost on varsity
and then I got hurt, so.
But I've always been competitive.
I fuckin' get down on beer pong.
I bet you 20 I can beat you.
TERESA: I'm sure you could.
Let's do it then, you ain't down.
Hey, playboy, I wanna play.
Oh, shit.
Damn, look at this fool coming
in and wanting to play like that.
But it's me and her
against your annoying ass.
Think you can you handle that or what?
Dawg, I don't need no partner.
I'm gonna fuck you fools up.
JULIO: No mames.

So where'd you go to high school?
TERESA: Centennial, you?
Did you guys have race riots?
Fuck, yeah, but trip out,
in the whole high school we
only had two white boys, right?
White Mike and White Larry.
And one of them was a cholo
and the other one was a Blood.
And anytime we had race riots,
these fools would find each other,
fuck each other up.
Damn, that's beautiful.

- Ugh! Fuck!
- JULIO: What do you do for work?
I'm a vet tech, but I wanna
quit 'cause it's too sad.
Why, you gotta put down
little cute animals and shit?
- TERESA: What do you do?
- Let's go!
I'm gonna open up a café.
Oh, shit, did you always
wanna open up a coffee shop?
JULIO: Actually, no.
You know, a dude put a gun to
my head and made me do that shit.

Told you I'd fuckin' win!
Fuck, yeah, perro!
- Oh, that's sweet, he's happy.
- VINCE: Let's go!
Not for long, watch.
In exactly one hour, that fool's
gonna try to throw down with someone.
¿De veras?
Exactly one hour.
- Somebody please ♪
Knuckle up, bitch,
we're gonna throw down.
Oh, shit, but why? You're my boy.
Remember that time you
pantsed me junior year
in front of Jessica Rosales?
That's why, bitch. Let's go bodies.
Dawg, but we threw down
over that shit years ago.
You fucked me up bad,
you don't remember?
Oh. Oh, yeah, you're right.
But you better not fuckin'
do it again, you got me?
Hey, you got it, big dawg.

TERESA: Damn, that fool's unstable.
Nah, he's a softie.
He's gonna start crying, watch.

[Hasta La Miel Amarga by
Tiranos del Norte playing]
First time him and his ex broke up,
I found him naked in the
street singing this song.
Check it out. Three, two, one.
Why? God, just tell me why!
[partygoers gasp]
[Vince farts]
Damn, this is making me sad.
And I gotta pee again.
- Me, too.
- I also gotta fart.
That's disgusting.
[toilet flushes]

[toilet flushes]
[hip-hop music playing in distance]
Hey, you think I can get your
number so I can prank call you?
Yeah, you could have it.
Weird time to ask for my number though.
JULIO: Eh, it's not that weird.
Wait till I ask for a golden shower.
Hey, but, listen.
JULIO: Yeah?
- I have a kid.
- [stops urinating]

- [urinating resumes]
- JULIO: No big deal.

You sure?
'Cause for a lot of
guys, it is a big deal.
JULIO: I love kids.
You know, not like in a weird way.
Okay, good, because I need you to
pick her up from school tomorrow.
JULIO: Wait, what?
- I'm fucking with you.
- [zipper zips]
JULIO: Shut up, dummy.
Ooh, I feel lighter.
- ♪
- Damn.
TERESA: She's gonna get
pregnant for real this time.

Can I call you Christina?
Yeah, okay.

MINISTER PAYNE: No, no, no, no, no, no.
I've been on hold for an
hour and a fuckin' half
with the city already, so, no,
you may not put me on hold again
unless this is hell
and you're the devil,
in which case, go right ahead.
So you meet the kid yet?
Nah, it's chill.
There's no drama, you know.
Damn, you're like a dad already,
but you look like a grandpa.
And once you have kids of your own,
you're gonna give 'em
your shitty Jack disease.
Jack disease?
Dawg, you don't remember that movie Jack
starring that fool Mrs. Doubtfire,
where he's a little kid,
but he looks all old?
Shit is a underrated banger.
Damn, I wouldn't mind
having kids of my own.
[sighs] We could watch Jack together,
show 'em all the classics.
You can have my three
annoying-ass kids.
Them motherfuckers bad.
You have kids?
Damn, I didn't know that.
CHEF PERCY: Well, maybe you would
if you ask me something
about me every now and then.
All y'all do is talk about yourselves.
"My rooster" this, "my world
traveler girlfriend" that.
Sometimes hanging out with y'all
be hurting my feelings sometimes.
- Sorry, Percy.
- [phone buzzing]
'Sup, this is the suicide hotline.
Hey, Teresa, don't kill
yourself, you just met a cool guy.
TERESA [over phone]: Listen,
Julio, I have a huge ask.
I-I've literally tried everybody
and I'm so sorry to call.
You okay? What's up?
TERESA: Do you think you
can pick Aurora up at school
and take her to soccer practice?
Wait, you're fucking with me, right?
TERESA: No, I'm for real.
I got a surprise mandatory
training session at work.
It's fucked up, but I won't be
available for the next few hours
and her fucking dad's not picking up.
[sighs] I'm so sorry.
I-I wouldn't be asking if you
weren't the absolute last resort.
Hey, no big deal.
All I gotta do is pick her
up and take her to practice?
TERESA: Oh, my God, thank you so much.
I'll call the school and tell them
you're coming and text you the info.
You got it. Hey, go get trained.
- TERESA: You're the best. Bye.
- Bye.
Julio, I need you to drive
me to the city permit office
to pick up our sidewalk dining license.
Actually, I can't, I'm
picking up Teresa's daughter.
Wait, the chick you're dating has a kid?
Yeah, but it's casual.
I'm just giving the
kid a ride, no big deal.
- No big deal?
- [dramatic music plays]
Are you fuckin' stupid?
- What?
- MINISTER PAYNE: Here's what's gonna happen.
You'll get close to the kid, then when
it doesn't work out with the mom, bam.
The kid is traumatized.
Years later, that kid's
gonna be in therapy
crying to some shrink about how
their life didn't turn out right
because their mom once dated a loser
who lived in a garage
and stunk up the bathroom.
I don't stink up the bathroom.
Julio, I live with you.
You're rotting from the inside.
Fuck, what do you think I should do?
Look, kids are like cops.
The less you have to deal
with them, the better.
So you maintain boundaries
with this kid, okay?
Don't get to know it.
Don't get too close to it.
Don't ask it any questions.
Don't even look it in the eyes.
Just keep it hydrated.
It'll be okay.
Okay, boundaries, got it.
And hydration.
Hydration is key.

- [sighs]
- [door closes]
[school bell rings]
JULIO: Boundaries,
and keep her hydrated.
Give her water, that's all you gotta do.
Fuck, why did I agree to do this?
I'm a fuckin' idiot.
I should throw myself off a bridge.
Are you Julio?
Yeah, are you Aurora?
- Yeah.
- Get in.
Sorry, this front seat's
taken, gotta sit in the back.
Here, drink this.
- Okay.
- [engine starts]
JULIO: Approximately 15
minutes to soccer practice.
[ominous music plays]

So, are you like my mom's friend?
- Yep.
- How did you meet?
It's a boring story,
you don't wanna hear it.
You'd be too bored.

Don't you wanna know how
my day was or something?
It's none of my business.
Do you have kids?
Sorry, I gotta listen to this.
WOMAN [over radio]:
The advanced surgeons
at the Center for Innovative Care
That's just commercials.
JULIO: Yeah, but these are
my favorite commercials,
they're really good.
What do you do for work?
JULIO: Don't worry
about it. Drink water.
I'm not even thirsty.
You don't have to be
thirsty to drink water.
I wish I drank more
water when I was a kid.
I would have better skin.
- My skin is fine.
- Oh, lucky you.
Yeah, I am lucky.
Yeah, I know, I said that.
[indistinct chatter over radio]
- [softly] Weirdo.
- [car doors closes]
- JULIO: Alright, come on, let's go. Let's go.
- AURORA: I'm going.
You're gonna have a lot
of fun, come on, let's go.
- What's going on?
- JULIO: You're gonna
Hey, just dropping her
off. What's going on?
Yeah, practice is canceled.
An airplane spilled jet
fuel all over the field.
- Wait, what?
- COACH: Yeah, it happens every couple years.
This neighborhood is
directly under a flight path.
But I mean, they can
still practice, right?
- I mean
- No.
The field is probably
all nice and lubricated.
Imagine how fast they'll be able to run.
You'll run really fast, huh?
COACH: Absolutely not.
The oil seeped into the ground
and now the field is a
mass grave for gophers.
They'd be stepping all
over them, tripping on 'em.
They would really
interfere with the game.
Gotta stop volunteering in
these shitty-ass neighborhoods.
Puta madre.
Hey, I'm gonna call your mom, okay?
Come on, let's go.
Hey! So, um, practice is canceled.
Um, so what ended up happening
was an airplane dumped like jet fuel
or some shit on the, on the field.
But we're all good here.
Nothing to worry about.
You know, it's not a big
deal. It's no big deal.
But, um, I'm just kind of, you
know, I'm wondering what to do.
So when you get a chance,
you know, give me a call.
But it's no big deal.
But just call me as soon as you
get this, but it's no big deal.
Do you have keys to your house?
[airplane engine roaring]
Fuck, let's get outta here.
[door closes]
- Mama?
[ominous music plays]
You wait there.
I'm going to make you
a yummy, yummy sandwich.
- [ominous music plays]
- Chingados.
Okay, a little sandwich-ito
for my little queenicita.
- [door opens]
- ROCIO: Mama.
[ominous music plays]
Why is there a kid in there?
ROCIO: Jesus, Amá.
You know what, Julio?
Good for you dating that woman.
Doing something good
in your life for once.
It's not a big deal, huh?
No, it is a big deal, Julio.
This kid is a part of your life now.
You need to take that seriously.
Hey, you guys know that there's, like,
a female child in the living room?
I'll give you 20 bucks
if you look after her.
Money up front. Pay me, stupid.
Yeah, great, just pass her along
to be somebody else's problem.
- I don't want any drama.
- ROCIO: No drama?
There's a fucking preteen in there.
She's crying, I'm out.
She's crying?
Yeah, I'm taking Mom to the eye doctor.
Do the right thing, Julio,
you're a fucking dad now.
[ominous music plays]
Ana, can I get my 20 bucks back?
ANA: Shut up, stupid.
[Aurora sobbing]
[softly] Oh, man.
Hey. You wanna watch TV?
I was lying.
I-I'm sorry, Aurora, I
didn't mean any of it.
I was talking to my mom.
You know how moms are,
sometimes they can be bitches.
But not your mom.
I'm really sorry. Uh
Ooh, uh, do you want some water?
I don't want any water!
Oh, what about ice cream?
You think I'm five?
Is there anything, anything I
can do to make you feel better?

Julio Lopez?
It's me, Julio. También.
[ominous music plays]
- Hi, Julio.
- Hey.
[dramatic sting]
This is such a fun coincidence.
Yeah, it's nice to see you guys.
Congrats on getting married.
- Yeah.
- I saw on Instagram.
- MAGGIE: Yeah, thanks.
- Best day of my life.
- [phone ringing]
Hello? Yes.
Uh, sorry, I gotta take this.
- So you ended up with También?
- MAGGIE: Yeah, I did.
It's nice having financial security
and someone who's willing to commit.
- JULIO: Hmm.
- What about you, still living with your mom?
Nah, I moved out.
Actually accomplished my dream
of opening up my own café.
You wanted to open up a café?
Yeah. You probably forgot all
those times I mentioned it to you.
Why are you in a makeup store?
I'm actually a father now.
See that little girl over
there, Aurora, she's my daughter.
You know, I didn't post
about it on Instagram
because I don't need
the validation of likes.
Being a father is rewarding enough.
You mean stepdad?
Oh, she actually calls me Dad.
Why create boundaries?
Why don't you introduce me?
Oh, we're actually raising
her not to speak to strangers.
Ahh, lucky you know me then.
Lucky me. Oh.
I'm all done.
Hey, mija, this is my friend Maggie.
Hi, sweetie, you look so pretty.
Sorry you're stuck
with your stepdad today.
I'm actually having a great time.
Thanks again, Dad.
Well, what do we have here?
A princess in the makeup section?
What an honor.
Oh, and what's this?
A shiny quarter for Her Majesty.
Oh, actually I forgot
to eat lunch today.
I'm starving.
[gasps] Hmm.
[chomping] Mm. Mm.
Oh, oh, oh. Oh!
- I don't want that.
- MAGGIE: Alright, let's get outta here.
TAMBIÉN: But, sweets, you
haven't gotten your eyeshadow yet.
They don't have my color, dear.
Uh, what about this one?
That is mascara.
You know what? I'll
leave you guys to it.
Good luck. Can't wait to
see the kids on Instagram.
- MAGGIE: Mm. [laughs]
- Let's go.
TAMBIÉN: See ya.
She seems weird.
And that guy's a dumbass.
I'll buy you whatever
you want in the store.

- [phone buzzing]
- Hey.
TERESA [over phone]: A jet
fuel spill, what the fuck?
- Are you guys okay?
- Yeah, we're all good now.
TERESA: I'm so sorry. Where did
you guys go instead of soccer practice?
We just went to my mom's.
TERESA: Oh, shit, I feel so bad.
Don't feel bad. It's not a big deal.
TERESA: Okay, well, thank
you for handling all this.
I'll be home in 30,
I'll meet you guys there.
Alright, see you then. Alright.
We gotta be home in 30 minutes and
you got all that shit on your face.
Damn. Smart.
[knock on door]
Hey. You have a good day?
AURORA: It was fine.
I'm sorry I couldn't pick you up, mija.
It won't happen again, I promise.
It's not a big deal, Mom.
TERESA: Okay, well,
go wash up for dinner.
Thank you.
I guess I owe you now, huh?
Don't be a freak about it though.
Hey, glad I can help.
Can Julio stay for dinner?
Oh, uh
I don't mind. You know,
it's not a big deal.
No, not a big deal.
- [ominous music plays]
- Okay, Aurora, go wash up.
- She's an eavesdropper.
- [vent air whooshing]
Oh, believe me, I know.
See, what the fuck is that?
- What?
- Why does my kid fuckin' like you?
I don't know. You like me.
Guess I'm just likable like that.
Aurora doesn't like anyone.
Must be my fun personality.
No, that's definitely not it.
Look this is turning into a big deal.
Wait, I thought you said
it wasn't a big deal.
TERESA: It wasn't, but now it is.
My kid liking you is a big deal.
My kid meeting your mom and asking you
to stay for dinner is a big deal.
There's a line we're about to cross.
So, either you stay for
dinner and it's a big deal
or you gotta go right now.
And if you gotta go, that's
fine, that's okay, really.
- I could tell her something else.
- I'll stay, all good.
- Yeah?
- Yeah.
Because I took a
pregnancy test this morning
and I'm pregnant with your child.
I'm fucking with you.
I threw myself down some stairs.
Oh, good.
[peppy music playing]

[inaudible conversation]

[phone rings]

Aiden. Tell him you're sorry.
- I'm sorry.
- [laughs] It's alright.
Uh, don't trip.
- Kids.
- Yeah, kids. [laughs]
- Single mom life.
- Yeah, I get that, single dad life here.
- Single dad, really?
- Mm-hmm.
Must be hard.
Yeah, but, you know, single moms,
they're the ones who really got it hard.
Yeah, that is really nice to hear.
It's true.
Oh. Hi, princess.
Uh, well, I guess I'll
see you later, single mom.
Bye, single dad.
Um, sorry,
but, um, would you maybe
wanna go out sometime?
Oh, uh, I'm actually dating someone.
It's great, she doesn't have kids.
But, hey, good luck out there.
[ominous music plays]
Come on.
Hey, go karate kick
