CHASE: You had to do it.
The guy's a liability.
Uh, so how many upper management did we let go? Like, um, half of them.
Chase, will you get me the exact number, severance packages, company history, all of that? I need it for the report.
Yeah, we can send it.
All right, moving on to Brunig.
CHASE: Intel's coming back that Brunig's got this old battle-axe CEO who's not really looking to fire anyone.
Fucking boo.
Okay.
Uh, well, we're gonna need a female to talk female, then.
We're gonna put you on this, Emma.

¿Cómo que racist? It's historic.
It, like, honors the Japanese culture.
Then why does it say "La Chinita"? What you mean? Why does it says "little Chinese girl"? Well, it's a Japanese chinita.
I know some people around here are okay with casual racism, running around calling all Asians "Chinos," but I'm not.
It has to come down.
We need all the help we can get, and this branding isn't helping.
Hey, if you're trying to get esos hipsters up in here, I might feel some kind of way about that.
Hey, what's going on? Your mother, the unwoke dinosaur that she was Hey! Never understood that what was keeping customers away had a lot to do with abuelo's racially tone-deaf geisha imagery, along with the bigoted name.
It has to come down.
Okay.
What would we call it? That's not important right now.
But isn't it? Doesn't it have to have a name? Yeah, what's it gonna be called bar? Vida.
That's the perfect name for it Vida's.
That's what everyone around here calls it anyway, right, Eddy? Yeah.
Everyone's todo like, "Hey, let's go to Vida's.
Why don't we meet at Vida's?" [GIGGLES] Oh, what, so you're a professional brander now? You can just pick a name out of thin air? Well, no, but I think I can have an opinion about the name for our own bar.
Why don't you go for a jog? Maybe watch a little more TV while you're at it.
- Gacho.
- I was just trying to help.
You know what, Emma? Sometimes you can be such a Such a what? A voice of reason? Do whatever.
Take it down, leave it.
Do whatever you want.
All right.
So the sign Pues, I know a guy who knows a guy who can take it down for cheap.

We'll wash away the sins of the mother.
What? Nada.

Well, yeah, it's racist as fuck, but why are you taking it down now? Are you guys thinking of changing things up? I don't know.
I-I think that's the plan.
All I know es que we got to take it down so we can get more customers or some shit.
Damn, just don't let this become one of those places, porque, like Over my dead cuerpo, Mari.

Now everyone knows about my super-serious T-shirt addiction.
IPhone cases.
Sorry? I'm a pretty serious iPhone case addict.
Actually, I just bought three today.
Who needs that many iPhone cases? [CHUCKLES] I don't know.
I guess a person who's really into keeping their iPhone safe.
[BOTH CHUCKLE] So each lotion is named after an Aztec goddess.
The whole line is named Diosa.
That sounds so Uh, that sounds nice when you say that Diosa.
It means goddess.
Oh, my God.

Seriously, this was not the best planned business trip.

Eight dollars.
Is that, uh, high for this neighborhood? It's, like, $15 downtown.
There you go.

Por favor.
Gracias.
De nada, señorita.
You know, I-I spent a semester in Mallorca, and there is nothing sexier to me than when you guys roll your Rs.
Come meet these bunch of maniacs.
[INDISTINCT CHATTER] - JACKSON: Hey, Harper.
- HARPER: Jackson, what's up? Where's my juice? Fuck, I forgot your juice.
Sorry.
HARPER: Oh, fuck.
[INDISTINCT CHATTER] GIRL: Holy fuck, yo.
We should get started, if that's cool with everyone.
[CLEARS THROAT] [PEOPLE WHISPERING] I want us to continue our conversation about the new coffee shop on 3rd.
We have to make a move before they open to make real impact.
The owners are raza.
They're gente.
TLALOC: Doesn't matter.
They can be gente, and they can be from the neighborhood.
[CELL PHONE CHIMING] They're still displacing.
We know this.
They're gente-fiers.
So we'll get that protest going, and we'll catch the shit at the root.
Hey, um, what about La Chinita bar? I saw that they were taking down their sign.
And those two sell-out daughters are gonna be taking over, and I know they're thinking of selling.
And they're definitely trying to change things up to bring in different clientele, from what I hear.
We should do a paro there.
Yeah.
We'll take a look at La Chinita.
Well, I'm just saying, I know those two sell-out white-tinas, and whatever they're planning for the building can't be good for the familias that live there.
Yeah, okay.
We'll keep it in mind.
TLALOC: All right, how many for City Hall next week? Coming with us? GIRL: I got to see if I can get off work.
TLALOC: Good.
MAN: I can give, like, five people a ride, maybe six.
Okay.
We got a lot of work to do.
- Hey, what's up? - [SIGHS] I've been trying to catch you all day.
Why haven't you texted me back? My phone's dead.
It's inside.
I just put it to charge.
Girl I've got something to show you.
- Come on.
- What? [SCOFFS] [SIGHS] YOLI: I was trying to tell you before you went in there.
That's posted? No, it's not.
Not yet.
Mari I mean, it's obvio that Tlaloc sent it to people who started sending it around.
No, it's not obvio to me.
He he wouldn't do that.
Just send that shit to people? Oh, please tell me you're not gonna do that Be a total pendeja about this.
There's only one cabrón who could've taped this, and it was him.
And it's not like the Hacking Fairy came at night and texted that shit to everybody.
No seas that girl, Mari.
He recorded me? He recorded it? MAN: All right, man.
[INDISTINCT CHATTER] Yoli, can you please get my phone? Please? [INDISTINCT CHATTER CONTINUES] [MUSIC THUMPING] HARPER: Oh, my God.
Finally, a fucking drink.
[LAUGHS] [INDISTINCT CHATTER] Ugh.
She keeps getting it so wrong.
Would somebody teach them how to make a proper gimlet, please? Here.
Shut up and be happy.
Mm, no, fuck that.
That makes me shit.
Lyn, will you pass me some of that, please? I am obsessed with your eyebrows.
[SIGHS] I keep telling my girl I want, like, Frida brows.
Really? I kind of hate them.
How in the world can you hate these? I can't stop looking at you.
HARPER: Here, take this away from me.
[SNIFFS] Ah.
Do we swim, or do we swim? - Aah! - [LAUGHTER] I guess we're gonna swim.

- JACKSON: Okay, let's go swim.
- Hey.
- Wait.
[GASPS] Oh, my God! Oh, my God! - Oh! [GASPS] - [LAUGHING] Oh, my God.
I feel so bad.
[BOTH LAUGHING] Whoo! Who says I'm ratchet just 'cause I like getting the D? I say you're ratchet, honey, but because you a messy bitch.
This is what sex positivity looks like.
No, this is what a sucia cochina mugrosa looks like.
Don't fall for this fuckery.
This one has a PhD in organizational leadership, and that one's working on a masters.
EMMA: No, I get it.
I recognize a proud power bottom when I see one.
- [LAUGHTER] - MAN: Oh, she called it.
Google Earth from space could've called it.
Come on, let's keep it cute.
Let's go dance, y'all.
CRUZ: Ah, in a little bit.
All right.

MARCOS: Un comadre.

- [GASPS] Oh, fuck, man.
What the fuck? You scared the shit out of me.
- I was just waiting for you - What the fuck, Tlaloc? Sorry.
I was just waiting for you to come out.
I didn't want to knock.
You off to work? Yeah, I'm fucking off to work.
What the fuck are you doing here? Well, it was weird to me that you didn't stay to talk after the meeting.
I know there's some things we got to talk about.
So I'm the one that's got to go looking to you to talk to you about the shitty thing you did? Well, that's why I'm here.
You were recording us? - That's so - It was just for me.
You got to believe me.
It was just for me.
Hey, I just like how pretty you look - when you're giving me - Oh, dude, please.
I have no fucking clue how it got out of my phone.
So it just fucking got out on its own? I'm for reals, Mari.
That's why I'm here.
I didn't send it to anyone.
I don't know if it got on my cloud and then my roommate got a hold of it.
Shut the fuck up.
The cloud? I'm hella serious, Mari.
I-I I got to go to work.
Mari [SIGHS] - I'm gonna be late.
- I-I I got to go.
Mari, come on.

- Do you want one? - Sure.
You're having a good time, huh? See? Things aren't so bad around here.
Hey You think I don't like it here, that I hate where I grew up? Yeah.
That's what I've deduced from all the years you've stayed away, yeah.
I never wanted to leave.
Vidalia sent me away.
Do you know that? de mi negra preciosa One day she found me with Lucy, this little girl that lived in the building, and we were [SIGHS] I don't know, touching, I guess Uh, kissing.
And we were, like, 11, and Vida freaked the fuck out, and there I went to live with abuelita in South Texas.
You never told me that.
No, because that's the kind of shit I had to put together later After I figured out why she sent me back that second time.
That time, she found fucking poems and journal entries.
Why the fuck did I ever keep a journal? It was just so stupid.
Que cuando se va de casa Triste me pongo They were all about you.
And there went Vida, freaking the fuck out again.
By then, it was undeniable what she was freaking out about.
Emma Bebita, I'm so sorry.
Why sorry? Because that pinche hypocrite was still in the closet back then? Had to work out her own fucking gay shame by sending me away? Don't be.
[EXHALES SHARPLY] I lived happily ever after.
