What We Do in the Shadows (2019) s01e10 Episode Script


1 I like being a familiar.
It's a very satisfying job.
Well, actually, calling it a job would imply that it pays.
So it's more of a vocation.
Less glamorous than I imagined.
I thought by now I'd be like Armand, but sometimes I feel like I'm halfway turning into a Renfield.
I think the worst part for me is the loneliness.
I'm awake when my master's asleep, and the house gets quiet and it's lonely, but I'm also awake when he's awake.
I'm always awake.
You know, sometimes I wonder what my life would be like if I was still at Panera Bread.
I'd probably be manager.
I'd get to boss other people around for a change, sleeping, health insurance, friends getting paid, all the Panera Bread you can eat.
But you know what they say: the heart wants what the heart wants.
Good evening, Guillermo.
Good evening, Master.
I have an envelope for you.
Okay, pop it in the coffin.
Thank you.
Uh, just pop it in there.
That's that's Is it in yet? I can't read it.
It's too dark in here.
Is it another summons for jury duty? Just tell them I'm dead.
Oh, no.
It's something very cool.
I had your DNA tested.
A lab tested it.
How did they get the DNA? Did they steal my semen? What? No.
I won't have my semen stolen again.
No, I don't, I don't No, I don't even know what that story is.
No, this is all very scientific.
Well, the story is some witches decided to steal my semen and put it into a semen spell.
But it didn't even work, and then they got semen everywhere.
But this seems much more aboveboard, so This just uses science to find out where your ancestors came from.
It could also be used to see if you have any living relatives.
Living relatives? Dun, da-da, da.
Here's yours.
You have Oh, wow.
- What? - You have 200,000 direct living descendants.
That's a lot.
I'm a granddad? Well, technically, you're a great-granddad times 30.
Becoming a vampire came at a strange time in my life.
I was married at the time to 37 women.
My 37 wives weren't very happy about the changes I was going through.
I was becoming very moody, sleeping all day now.
Nighttime was mainly drinking people's blood.
Put a strain on all of us.
Then they left, all 37 of them.
It was a sad night for me, because I really loved 35 of them.
In those days, fathers didn't really look after their children.
It was down to the women.
And in some cases, a couple of friendly wolves.
I did try to visit my children, but they were just afraid, you know, 'cause I'm a vampire floating outside the window.
Hey, kiddies.
Hey, you've got my nose.
That's the last time I saw them.
Probably dead now, I suppose.
And another cool thing is, you can find out if any of them live near you.
You have one of them living right here in Staten Island.
- Why are we going to the library? - This better be good, Nandor.
- How long is this gonna take? - I was cleaning my skull.
Not long, not long.
Thank you.
Everyone, I have some very exciting news.
Guillermo has had my DNA tested.
You need to be careful that's not evil witches trying - to pinch your semen.
- Yes.
Witches are semen stealers.
There's no semen-stealing.
It's very official.
It came in an envelope.
I actually had everyone's DNA tested.
How did you get our DNA without us knowing? You literally leave it laying everywhere, so it wasn't that hard.
So, here's yours, Nadja.
No, thank you, please.
Put that on the pile there for burning.
- You sure you don't want to open it? - Don't test me! Okay, forget that.
- So, Laszlo - Don't you dare.
- You don't want to? - Bugger off.
That's not very nice.
Colin Robinson.
- Ding, ding, ding.
- There you go.
Could I get a drumroll first? - No.
- No.
- Nope.
- Fine.
I'll do my own.
Frankly, I would be flattered if witches collected my semen.
It says here that I am 100% white.
People are from all different places.
It just can't say "white" on your paper.
Oh, wow.
"100% white.
" No other nuance.
Tell them my other news, Guillermo.
He has over two hundred 200,000 direct descendants living today! Fucking hell.
Well done, chap.
Thank you, Laszlo.
Congratulations, Nandor.
That is some very exciting seed.
- Yes.
- But I'm telling you, don't let the witches find out about it.
They'll be coming for you.
- No - That is top-quality seed.
And thanks to your little helper, they know about it.
I'm telling you, they're coming for more.
They use it to make magnets.
I'm a granddad.
- You know - Don't ruin it.
Oh, I-I wouldn't think of ruining it.
- Thank you.
- The great Genghis Khan I knew it.
Has over 16 million living descendants.
Now, that's a seed.
You just have to bring up Genghis Khan.
Do any of his relatives live nearby? Actually, yes.
Uh, he has a great-times-30 granddaughter who lives here in Staten Island.
So did you get your DNA tested, Guillermo? I did, but you probably wouldn't be interested - in finding out the results.
- Yes.
Probably not.
Thank you for attending.
I'm mainly mestizo, which I already knew.
12% Dutch.
That's pretty cool.
This basically shows my family tree.
There's the Dutch family, and the name is Van Helsing.
That's that's actually really funny.
Uh, 'cause I don't know if you're familiar with, uh, who Van Helsing is The most notorious vampire killer.
I have Van Helsing DNA in my blood, which is But he's not real, so He's not real.
Is he? I mean, vampires are real, but I suppose there could be a vampire Oh, wow.
I love vampires.
I-I I killed two accidentally.
Stay back! Oh, fuck.
My tummy feels weird.
Just I th What'd I have for lunch? I had for lunch I had, um garlic.
When I was a human man, I had rosy cheeks, yet in between those cheeks, there was never a smile.
And then, one night, everything changed.
Nadja came through the window and took my life.
She opened a window to my soul and let the darkness in.
I'm creating something very special for her.
It's yet to take shape.
When it does, I think she'll be very impressed.
I can't be bothered to hold this anymore.
Can you tether it? Uh, actually What the fuck have you got in your hand?! Put that down! That's a wooden stake, you dickhead! Well, you asked me to buy garden stakes, so I b Get them out of my sight now, you smart-ass.
- Okay.
- Where did you get them from? - Amazon, so - Well, then you get in your car, and you drive back to the Amazon.
That's not how that w It's online.
Shut your mouth, and tie this thing up.
Fucking halfwit.
Stakes! The most offensive thing he could bring into the house.
Tighter! So, Nandor has 200,000 descendants.
Still far fewer than, uh, Genghis Khan.
Um, so we're gonna go visit one.
Her name is Madeline.
I'm going to float up to her window and see her.
Not going to introduce myself yet.
Don't want to frighten her.
I need you to be very supportive of me at this delicate moment.
Going to give her some gifts.
Got her a little teddy bear.
You know what? This isn't working, me being supportive.
I feel like I am literally eating myself.
Ugh! It is time.
Don't tap on the window.
I see her.
She's asleep.
How does she look, Master? She looks a little older than I was anticipating.
That-That's what I was trying to tell you she's 94.
- So young! - Don't tap on the window.
She is stirring.
I'm going to tap on the window.
- No.
- N-No, Master, don't tap on the window.
Madeline! Tap, tap, tap, tap, tap! - Oh, crap.
- Wakey, wakey! Ah.
She's awake.
Come to me, my little one.
Come, look, this is for you.
Your grandpappy is here.
Say hello.
This is Oh, no.
I knew I shouldn't have tapped on her window, but you goaded me.
If, by "goading," you mean my saying, "Under no circumstances should you tap on her window," then, yes, I goaded you.
Yes, exactly.
You see, you are a goader, Guillermo is a goader.
You saw an opportunity to goad and what did you do? - You goaded it.
- Okay.
Guillermo! What is this feeling I am feeling? It's grief, Master! Grief? I don't care for it.
Wait, wait.
Nandor! How am I supposed to get down, Nandor? You goaded me, and now you got to take the stairs! This is why you don't get attached to humans.
They don't last long.
It is like with my sweet Gregor.
He is reborn and then he dies.
And again and again and again.
And every time he comes back, our love is reignited like a big ball of flames, and then he is brutally decapitated.
Look at this one.
Such a beautiful head of hair.
I like it when he's subservient, but not like this.
Hello! Num, num, num, num, num.
Gregor, you are the sweetest boy Kid.
I have to be very careful in case Laszlo sees.
My sweet Gregor Gregor, can you hear me? Gregor, hear me Singing this song Gregor, can you hear me? Gregor, hear me - Nadja.
- Nadja! Nadja! - Singing this song - I'm Gregor! Nadja! Nadja? Nadja! Hey! Hey! Goddamn it.
Call the cops.
Nandor has invited us to join him at the funeral of his descendant Madeline.
- Wait.
It's in a church? - Oh, bloody hell.
- Well, of course.
It's a funeral.
- But hang on.
It's night.
Shouldn't there be no one in there? I got it changed to later in the evening.
- Asshole.
- How did you do that? I called in a bomb scare.
- I can't go in there.
- No.
Do it for Madeline.
Look at the pictures on the glass.
It's the Jeebus man.
Thought of going in a church a church Makes me nervous to say the word.
I just You know, this Not much scares me, but this She can go in.
Why can't we? Look at - Because she's not a vampire! - Look at her.
I'm a vampire.
I can go in.
Energy vampires have no problems going into places of worship.
We find it to be fertile feeding ground.
- No! Ooh! - Wonderful, Colin.
Can you go in and pay our respects, and we'll just stand here? This is not about feeding ground.
This is about my great-great-great-great- great-great-great-great-great-great- great-great-granddaughter.
Please? Fuck it.
- Madeline.
- Again, it's okay for me to go in.
I-I'm I'm gonna be fine.
- Madeline.
- Laszlo.
And it is with great sadness and tremendous remorse that we say goodbye to Madeline Darvish.
She did not have children of her own, but many considered her a mother figure.
- Please rise.
- Motherfucking rise.
- Then you rise.
- You rise.
- I really appreciate you coming.
- The Lord is my shepherd.
- I shall not want - Nandor, we got to get out of here.
Nandor, I'm so sorry.
I don't know how much longer I can last.
Nandor, my mascara is running because of the blood.
You look great.
I got to get out.
I can't do this.
It is a lovely service, but I'm on fire.
Your rod and your staff - they comfort me.
- Thank you for coming, Nadja.
Hey, I'm gonna go, too.
I'd rather watch TV.
Thank you, Colin Robinson.
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
Please be seated.
Guillermo, I'm on fire.
Get some water.
Aah! So sad.
I really miss her.
That was holy water, Guillermo.
Are you trying to kill me? She died too young.
If anyone from the family would like to say a few words, n-now would be a good time.

Nadja is my wife.
I should cut your head off.
Oh, L-Laszlo, you don't need to do that.
I always have.
- Wait, what? - What? I know who you are.
Outward appearance may have changed.
The pattern remains the same.
You get reborn, you try and find her, and I cut your head off.
Oh, shit.
When I was a street thief? I had the cleaver in my hand.
When I was a naval officer? I was on board that ship with a cutlass.
