Season 2, Episode 8

1 - Parents fuck you up.
- No, family does.
Emma, please say something.
You're selfish in a way I can't even begin to comprehend.
Your mariachi mural.
You could lease that wall space.
One of her business partners that's me is not going to let this happen.
As far as I know, you have no legal right here.
Yo soy la líder Yo soy la dueña Soy exitosa, ah No me da pena I run the calles en este barrio We got valores no monetarios Estos murales son legendarios Fuck all your new walls, I'm all around you Salgo en la esquina y tú me discriminas Why, why, why, why Why you calling me whitina Tú busca vida, yo no soy la vendida Why, why, why, why Esos nombres son mentira, mira Así me llamo yo, así me llamo yo Así me llamo yo, así me llamo yo Me llamo Tere, Clarita, Consuelo, María Hija de Rosa y nieta de Frida, yo LYN: Well, she hasn't said anything to me, so I assume I'm not invited.
Did she say anything to you? - Not to me.
- LYN: Of course not.
She hasn't said two words to me since she came back.
I go up to her to tell her that Eddy didn't ever come home last night, that her bed was completely Eddy didn't sleep at home last night? I texted, and I think she's fine.
But, like, does Emma care? No.
That is a complicated thing, the three of you.
Isn't it? I mean yes, but, like, does it have to be? Me and Emma, well, whatever.
It is what it is right now.
But us and Eddy? It should mean something that mami picked her to be her person, right? Whether we like it or not, it makes us family.
Oh, does it? I say this with no shade.
What is family? Nico if she doesn't forgive me for this this whole thing will go to shit.
I won't opine on your family business But come here.
[CHUCKLES] [DOOR CLICKS OPEN] EMMA: Nico.
Are we taking your bike or a Lyft? Uh, we can take a car.
I-I was gonna partake tonight, and I don't want to worry about it.
Uh, in the Bay, I used to go to after-hours parties all the time.
They were so much fun.
You look amazing.
NICO: San Cha is dope.
I mean, a little experimental but a crowd-pleaser, and I really think that if we get her to play here, her crowd will follow, and we need that.
I'll tell you what she says about playing here.
Thank you, Nico.
Have so much fun.
I'm sure I don't have to tell you how expensive it is Every time they send someone out for the alarm, it's $90.
You literally printed it and laminated it for me.
In the event that you panic, just do what that tells you to do.
My friend just texted and San Cha goes on at 3:00.
- Okay.
- You gonna need a coffee? No, I'm good.
Thank you.
Make sure to follow the instructions.
[DOOR SQUEAKS] MARCOS: So where did they go? I didn't understand your text.
[SIGHS] To an after-party.
Do you know the name? Aren't after-parties, like, in different places? Yes, but they have names.
Who's the artist? Hmm.
[INDISTINCT SPEECH ON TV] MARCOS: Oh, San Cha? That's my putaex.
Did you want me to get you in? - Oh no.
- Hmm? If Emma was so blatant about not inviting me, I think I'm not supposed to go.
Oh, this coming from Miss Emma? She hasn't told me yet, but I think this means I'm being demoted from music series director.
Well, that's what I was calling myself.
They're scouting San Cha for the bar.
Hold on.
Mama's thinking.
I'm texting San Cha for the address.
More importantly, I'm wearing my new tacones.
It's settled.
This feels slightly like what I shouldn't be doing.
You're never gonna get anywhere with your sister if you walk around being scared of her.
Ándale.
[LAUGHS] Oh, mama, I see a wig in your future.
Oh, dear, the saliva bridge.
- [SIREN WAILING] - Going that way? NICO: R2-D2/Arturito getting all up in it? I found the code.
What? Nothing.
I'm just usually on my second dream by now.
You dream? You're funny.
But seriously, openly shared secretions in public spaces is not disturbing to you? Why are you getting all monjita on me? What's going on? I'm not getting all monjita.
It's just Look, I'm sorry.
It's just starting to sink in that this isn't just a meeting to find an act for the bar.
We're gonna have to, like, be here actively.
Among the people, the plebes.
Gross.
Okay, come on.
We need to type in "star-2-2-7-pound.
" [PEPPY POP MUSIC PLAYING OVER SPEAKERS] [DOOR SLAMS] - Yeah, I'm out.
- Okay, wait, wait, wait.
Okay, I'm not gonna leave you alone.
If if it makes you feel better, we'll make a safe word.
We don't need a safe word.
No, come on.
If you need to abort ask if I've heard from Lyn yet.
Okay, if by "safe word," you mean something that triggers me, then you're right on there.
Right, all right, if if you need to abort fucking ask if I've heard from my cousin Arturito yet.
¿Va? [LAUGHS] Yeah.
Okay.
Star-2-2-7 [DOOR BUZZES] [OVERLAPPING CHATTER] [GROWLS] Sorry.
All right, cups and ice are on the way.
Cups and ice for what? I'd rather drink my cheap shit than theirs.
Did you wanna sip from the bottle while we wait, or is that too loud? No, I should abstain until after we meet with San Cha.
Okay, so these things run on kind of a loose schedule.
Well, how loose? - CURLY: Hey! - Mm! - Nicotine! - Curly-cue! I should have texted you.
Hey, I know this Latina Posh Spice.
You're Cruz's girl, aren't you? Definitely not Cruz's girl.
CURLY: Oh.
Oh, this is my song! Come on, come on, zaddy.
- We're doing this.
- Oh, uh, wait, wait, wait! I can't leave Emma alone here! Don't be silly, go.
Uh, have fun.
I'll hold your tequila.
Go, go, go.
It's good.
All right, um, no, no, no.
No, no.
Are you fucking kidding me? Get the fuck out of my face.
NICO: Hey, hey, hey.
Do you need to call my cousin? No, did you hear from your cousin Arturito? Uh, we we should call him.
Get get the fuck out of here.
Okay.
[LAUGHS] I know you're into that kind of shit.
I can tell.
He was mouth breathing.
Ooh, what's in the squid room? That is not a squid.
That is a clit.
Anatomically correct clit.
Do we go in the clit? [LAUGHS] Mira.
Bienvenida.
So do I do I look for her and go up to her, or should I be aware of where she is and stay clear? No, mamacita, we're not worrying about Emma right now.
We're here for The San Cha and for communion.
[OVERLAPPING CHATTER, LAUGHTER] What is that? And you ask after you swallow? It's just a harmless tachita, just to make you less of, this.
- Hey! - Hey! [LAUGHS] Ooh, looking like a hot-ass Snuffleupagus.
I am giving you devout Versace Charro.
- Y mejor cállate, perra.
- [LAUGHS] Who is this principessa? Oh, she's my new wifa.
CURLY: Aww.
All right, well, let's go find a good spot, since it's a whole thing.
San Cha wants us to be like slaves in a pit.
Uh, I don't know if a tour through the female reproductive system's for me.
Yeah, aesthetically, I'm a little over cis-feminist vag positivity art.
But at least it's an an immersive experience.
How often do you think they clean these, uh, eggs? Blood? Blood clots? What are these balls supposed to be? It's art! - Don't be too literal! - [LAUGHS] [SHOE THUDS] You're getting in this Petri dish? - Not me.
- What the - Oh, God! Oh! - [LAUGHS] - Asshole.
- Whoa! [STAMMERING] Ow, zorra! [LAUGHING] Okay, uncle, uncle! That's not the safe word, fucker! Okay, uh, cousin Arturito! Cousin Arturito! Cousin Arturito! Pretty good.
[EMMA GRUNTS] [NICO LAUGHING] Asshole.
- Stop! - [LAUGHS] LYN: Emma! Are you serious, Lyn? LYN: Marcos brought me.
Because you asked him to bring you.
No, I didn't ask him to! But I did let him convince me because Emma, I should see this performer too! - It's my job! - EMMA: What job? Head of the music series? That's a made-up job.
But hey, whatever gets you up every morning.
Why are you so mean? You like it like this! Me in the doghouse all the time! Yes, Lyn, I enjoy bailing you out of your shopping sprees with money I don't have.
- I love it.
- Then don't! I never asked you to! But you like it! You love being this martyr that has to sacrifice - EMMA: Okay! - LYN: Everything for everyone! Okay, let me ask you this: how are you planning on paying off $14,000? Besides going to yoga and hoping it goes away? What was your actual plan? I was going to figure out a way.
No, you were gonna find someone to pay it off for you, because that's what you do: shove your shit on other people without thinking twice.
God.
I'd forgotten that this is how you get.
It's either black or white with you, but no one can fuck up in your eyes because God forbid.
You know what? I'd forgotten too.
Or if I really think about it, I never really knew you.
And what I'm coming to find out is, I don't want to know you.
[THUMPING DANCE MUSIC PLAYING OVER SPEAKERS] [VOCALIZING] [VOCALIZING] Love, tell me love Tell me love, tell me love Tell me LYN: No.
[MARCOS LAUGHS] Ándale, wifa, ya van a tocar.
Oh, my God, I think I think the tachita just hit me.
- [BOTH LAUGHING] - Ooh, Pee-Wee's funhouse.
[BOTH LAUGHING] Where are we going? Wait, what is this supposed to be? Oh, the tunnel to the eggs.
We're in a fallopian tube.
So we're the eggs.
That's actually kind of brilliant.
You seriously gonna pretend that that just didn't happen? Nico, don't get involved in Lyn's drama, seriously.
Lyn's drama? You think this is just Lyn's? - I'm not accountable to you.
- Right.
You're not accountable to anyone.
I'm not accountable to anyone? I don't feed those two people? And according to my dead mother's credit card statement, I didn't just clothe one of them real well? Yes, Emma! Lyn fucked up royally! She also just lost her mother! And Eddy? Eddy just lost her wife! But apparently your head is so far up your own ass of mommy issues, you've just lost all sense of decency! Okay, you're crossing the fucking line! Oh, fuck that! You like to think you're some cold, corporate version of a cunt you learned at a leadership seminar.
"Hi, my name is Emma Hernandez, and my management style is an anaconda.
" Not doing this! Fuck.
[LAUGHS] [MUFFLED MUSIC PLAYING] Lighter? Nico, maybe you can just text me when San Cha goes on.
Come on, don't exile me.
I-I was totally out of line back there.
I admit it.
Come here.
Ew, lesbians.
[DOOR RATTLES] No, no, no, no! No! No! [DOOR SLAMS] Hello! Let us in! Let us in, you fucking hello! We're locked out.
Oh, God, these warehouse spaces are catacombs.
They're totally soundproofed.
Means we probably won't even get to hear when San Cha starts to play.
[DOOR RATTLING] You're giving up? Someone's gonna come out here.
People gotta smoke.
I know I'm on the short list for the last person you wanna be on Gilligan's Island with right now.
We're just gonna have to wait.
Hey, um I was out of line back there.
I will shut up about family stuff.
Palabra.
Every single person that's violated my trust is no longer in my life.
I don't come back from betrayal.
And with Lyn [SIGHS] I don't know how we're gonna do this or if we're even gonna do it at all, but She's my only family, so It's a whole other ball game.
I get it.
Trusting someone is basically saying, "Hey, people are shit and they're gonna fuck you over.
I'm gonna ask you to not fuck me over even though you probably will.
" [LAUGHS SOFTLY] It's basically acknowledging the possibility of betrayal.
Right, it's better just to go at it alone.
I get scared, close myself off to people all the time.
I mean look at you and me.
You haven't betrayed me yet.
As soon as you trust that I won't, does it make it 15 times scarier than it already is? I don't want to miss it.
What? The show, uh I don't want to wait for smokers.
I want to figure out a way to get back in.
Yeah.
Totally.
[DRAMATIC POP MUSIC PLAYING OVER SPEAKERS] [PEOPLE CHEERING] MAN: We love you, San Cha! [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE] [SAXOPHONE MUSIC PLAYING] WOMAN: Ay-yi-yi, it's San Cha! I really I really have to pee.
Uh-huh.
- I have to pee.
- Okay, I love you too.
LYN: No, I [WHIMPERS] Quisiera salir contigo It's all gonna come spilling out of me if I don't go right now.
I have to go.
I'll be back.
- MARCOS: Okay.
- Quédate aquí conmigo MAN: We love you, San Cha! Juntos los tres Volábamos Ah! Hoy sola ni Puedo pararme Sorry! Desesperada Desesperada sin tu amor Is this the line for the bathroom? Yo, yo te busco Desesperada Desesperada sin tu amor Oh, fuck.
Sorry.
Excuse me.
Si yo te encuentro en otros brazos Como yo busco Por todo el mundo mi amor Ay, como yo busco, como te encuentro Mi amor Ay, como te busco Por todo el mundo Mi amor [URINE TRICKLING] Te busco, como te busco Miss? I'm going to have to ask you to step off the artwork.
[URINE TRICKLING] This sink is part of the art? It's not a toilet.
Uh, sorry.
I can't stop midstream.
[SIGHS] It just looked like a regular sink.
Whoa, whoa! Hey, you don't have to be so aggro, sir.
It's a normal human necessity.
Hey! Yeah, you should ask her.
MAN: Do it.
Oh, great.
[CHUCKLES] [CLEARS THROAT] Hi.
[SIGHS] I'm at this thing.
But I shouldn't have come.
Why did I? I don't even know where I am.
Oh.
Willow and Anderson.
I guess I do know where I am.
Never mind.
I just wanted to check in 'cause well, I shouldn't say that I'm wondering how you are.
Actually, I won't say that.
Scratch that.
[SIGHS] It's just that I've always had someone to check in with, and for the past however long, I don't.
[LAUGHS] Just do it, man.
Go.
I really don't.
Do it.
And it, like makes me so sad that I want to crawl inside myself and Oh, my God, that image just gave me goose bumps.
Imagine if I could actually crawl inside myself.
Hey, would you cut that out? I-I'm just trying to talk to you, though, girl.
Stranger danger.
I don't talk to strangers or Jehovah's Witnesses.
- Good-bye.
- Bitch, we will follow you home.
What? Fucking little punks! Yeah, you better run! Sorry about that.
[DISTANT CHATTER] Fuck.
Tacos.
- [METAL CLANGS] - Okay, you sure about this, Lara Croft? You've seen there's no other way in.
Just don't look up.
Ay, boluda, it's just underwear.
I know, but it just it feels a little HR.
Just keep your eyes down.
[SCOFFS] Oh.
- Are you coming up or not? - I'm gonna come up.
I was just admiring your purse is all.
Just [SCOFFS] [INDISTINCT CHATTER] [INDISTINCT POLICE RADIO CHATTER] You came.
Why did you come? Lyn, you drunk dialed me or whatever it is you're on dialed me with two dudes about to rape you.
- Anyone would fucking come.
- What? Those little punks? [SCOFFS] Do do you have any idea the kind of core work that I do? Look at my arms.
I could have taken those little fuckers any day.
Can you stop acting up right now? Nope, not if you're gonna come here all Captain Save-A-Ho.
Look, I didn't need you to come.
I never meant for you to come.
I'm fine.
I was just checking in.
Stop acting all loquita in front of cops, Lyn.
Man, fuck the police! Seriously, Lyn, calm the fuck down.
Oh, wait, my phone, my phone, my phone.
You can't be saying shit like that to cops in front of a brown man.
You're gonna get my ass beat down for no good reason.
End up a fucking viral video.
Jesus, shit, what are you on? What I really want to be on right now are some asada fries.
But I have no money or earthly possessions to make that happen for me right now.
[SIGHS] Wait here.
[PAPER RIPS] We're in.
[MUFFLED MUSIC PLAYING] We missed it.
Oh, fuck.
Well, I'll just show you her act on Vimeo.
If I had known I had that choice Fucker.
[SIGHS] God, I'm starving.
I think I have some frittata at my house.
Frittata? Seriously? Well, I'll take what I can get.
Oh.
[LAUGHS] Mmm.
Somehow I know I'm gonna pay horrifically [LAUGHING] for this tomorrow.
But right now, I'm very okay.
Will you finish your asada fries so I can drop you off? I still don't understand why you brought me all the way up here just to eat fries.
It makes no damn sense.
Really? It doesn't make sense to you, Lyn? No one would see us this early.
But fine, I get it.
You don't want to be seen with me.
You didn't need to come get me.
Thank you, though.
But I was fine.
Well, you were pretty wavy there, so Everyone in my life thinks that I can't take care of myself.
But they're so wrong.
I'm sorry but I'm never going to ignore a video like that from you.
I don't know how to.
I know.
I'm sorry.
I'm sorry that I'm always putting you in these shitty [SIGHS] I always put people in shitty situations.
J, I'm such garbage.
Shut up, that's the Molly talking.
No, no, that's the me talking.
To you.
I owe you so many sorries.
I'm always dragging you into these shitty No.
I drag myself.
This will always be my favorite face.
