“OK, copy. It’s coming! Piece of shit quotas. $2.50? What are you guys getting at auction? What a dick. I got to go. Love you, Dad. I know. Bye, shit-face. That’s good. It’s a new one.” — Ruby Rossi

“What’s wrong? What? Why? Really? Choir. Shhh! I sing all the time. Thanks.” — Ruby Rossi

“Turn it down! It’s loud! Just drive! It itches. His, you know… I got it! You guys have jock itch. You two need clean underwear. And… you’re not allowed to do it anymore. Never again. Done for life. Two weeks.” — Ruby Rossi

“What’s rude is how noisy you guys are! I can’t focus. Oh, here we go! ‘…she won the Yankee Miss Pageant.’ Mm-hmm! I thought we said no Tinder at the table! How is music rude but Tinder’s okay?” — Ruby Rossi

“I don’t know. $800 a day. Don’t tell me. Tell them.” — Ruby Rossi

“Mr. V? OK. Do you want me to wait or just– other kids make me nervous. I used to get made fun of. I talked funny when I first started school. Yeah. I don’t know. I got scared. Maybe. Or maybe finding out that I’m bad. I think so.” — Ruby Rossi

“Please don’t! Oh, my God! Use the video relay. I have a friend over! Ew! OK, stop. You cannot date my brother. Because for you, dating just means sex, which I don’t even want to think about. Can you just go back to trying to get with teachers? It’s more entertaining. The Shaggs. This song is called My Pal Foot Foot. Wait, wait. That’s my favorite part, right there. Right there. No! No! Oh my God. No! Stop!” — Ruby Rossi

“We’re out in public! I don’t think being deaf makes it legal to spark a fatty. I got the price up, didn’t I? No, you look stupid when Gio throws out any number he wants and you can’t cross-check it! So do it! Us!” — Ruby Rossi

Thanks. It’s my favorite thing. I don’t know. Working with my dad. I’m not good at school. I’ve heard of it. I can’t afford school. I don’t know. It’s hard to explain.” — Ruby Rossi

“I joined the choir. I like to sing. What? Why is it always about you? I’m meeting people. I’m making friends. You know what? You should get out in the world too.” — Ruby Rossi

“At least they support you, right? Your music? I’m sorry about all this. My house is kind of gross. It sounds like shit. But so does my stereo. My mom thought it was a waste of money. It was $2 from Goodwill. My dad really likes gangster rap ’cause of the bass. Yeah. We were hard to miss. Really? So, how should we do this? Stand?” — Ruby Rossi

“It was so embarrassing. I can’t ever see him again. Get away from me! Yes, you did.” — Ruby Rossi

“They tried it down the Cape. That all went to hell. Don’t forget about the doctor. And the nets.”

“I love rap music. My whole ass is vibrating. It’s definitely itchy as hell. My nuts are on fire. They’re like angry hard little beets. Covered in barnacles. And your mother’s got it even worse. Like a boiled lobster claw. What? For how long? Impossible.”

“You know why God made farts smell? So deaf people could enjoy them too. Fifteen bucks, really? Oh. Yes! Your mother was the best! First year I met her she won the Yankee Miss Pageant. Beat all those hearing girls. She was hotter than all of them.”

“I’ll move money around tomorrow. What do you want me to do? I gotta pay for ice, fuel. And then what? It’s the only thing I know how to do!”

“What’s going on? How much is that gonna cost? That’s more than we make in a day!”

“It’s medical. Guys! You want to fight, go fight those assholes! Our family sticks together! I’d give my left nut to tell them to go screw themselves. Who’s gonna sell our fish?”

“How? Who’s gonna support us? We’re the deaf guys! They look at us like we’re a joke. You want me to text ruby?”

“We need to discuss this. Look at your mother! Hot! How am I supposed to control myself? Sit. I want to know what your intentions are. Put a helmet on that soldier.”

“You didn’t change after fishing. You stink. Can’t do it.”

“Take those off. It’s rude. Go eat. Don’t slouch. You’ll get stuck. You choose weed, I choose wine. You don’t want her! Swipe left. None of them smile? When I was modeling… what about her? So-so. Because Tinder is something we can all do as a family.”

“The card was declined! It’s embarrassing! Maybe we should sell the boat?”

“Uh… hi! Do you have a second to call grandma? It’s awkward to talk to an interpreter.”

“Why? You’re a teenager. If I was blind, would you want to paint? Hey!”

“We had no idea you were home. You two have to use condoms, okay?”

“I keep saying, let’s sell our own fish. So keep bitching. That’ll work. Bye, twat waffle. So? She’s hot.”

“Leave her alone. She’s with a friend. What’s up with Gertie? She just told me she has herpes.”

“Dad’s out back. Stop. I got this. Ruby, get out of here. Out of here! What the hell was that? I was handling it! You made me look stupid. Us!”

“We should do a co-op. Look, there’s empty warehouses everywhere. We could organize a business. Get the other boats on board. I’m gonna go with them. No. I’m a grown man!”

Bernardo Villalobos

“Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah! No, I did not tell you to sit. On your feet, my friends. Up, up! They made my latte with some kind of disgusting nut milk this morning, so I’m in a mood. Hey, come on! Come on! My name is Bernardo Villalobos. Berrrnardo. Berrrna– if you can’t roll your Rs, please, please, don’t embarrass yourself, and just call me Mr. V.
OK, all of you, on this side. Come on, move! Everyone to this side. Move! Let’s see if you’re an alto, a soprano or just watched too many episodes of Glee. My birthday was last Tuesday, so in lieu of gifts, I will be accepting a Happy Birthday song. I do not need an entire meal. I just want to place your voice. You, Harry Potter. Come on, let’s hear it. Shhh! Tenor. Next! Alto. Next! Suave. Tenor. Next! Come on. Yeah, you! The red shirt. Bless me with your birthday wishes. Uh… forget the words? No, no, don’t look at them. They’re not gonna help you. Come on! Oh! Huh… we have a runner.”

“Shhh! Shhh. I’m meditating. Two minutes to go. Ah! Most people who are terrified of singing don’t sign up for choir. You’re the girl with the deaf family? Everyone but you? And you sing. Interesting. Are you any good? Why did you run out of my class? Of what? Other kids? Do you know what Bowie said about Bob Dylan? ‘A voice like sand and glue.’ There are plenty of pretty voices with nothing to say. Do you have something to say? Good. Then I’ll see you in class… Bob. Oh! Really? Thank you! Thank you!”

“Energy! Energy! I’m falling asleep! Guys, sounds like a funeral! Come on! Hey, hey, hey! Guys, come on! You’re teenagers! All you think about is getting it on. Bob, come here! Come! Get up here. Come on! Come on, sign! No, no. No, no, no. No. You’re not breathing. There’s no sound without breath, and none of you are breathing. Fill your belly. Fill it up! Come on, that’s not a belly! This… this is a belly! Ah! Ha! OK, follow me, follow me. Do this… remember the little dog, big dog exercise? OK, little dog. Do it, come on! Push, push, push, push! Medium dog! Big dog! You’re embarrassed? Really? Everyone, little dog, big dog! Come on! And… pant! Pant! Push! Medium dog! Big dog! Engage your core! Blow it out! Push, push, push, push, push! Push! Push, push, push! Engage your core! Push, push, push! More, more! And sing! Yes! Now we’re talking! Well… it’s not sand and glue. Go. Shoo! Ruby, Miles… uh, come here, come here. Today, if it’s possible. Thank you. Um, do you guys know each other? Oh. Yeah. I need a duet. I need a duet for the fall concert. You’re All I Need to Get By. You know it? Know it? Educate yourself. We’ll work next class.”

“Goodbye! Miles, Ruby, we need to work. Did you work on the song? Good! Blow my tiny mind. Three, and… you did not work on this! Dios mio! ‘Du-et.’ It’s in the word! You must DU-ET together! Face each other. Come on, face each other! You’re afraid of her. You’re wise. Come on, he doesn’t have piojos. Guys! This is not the Pledge of Allegiance! It’s a love song. A love song! try to imagine what it’s like to sacrifice everything for another human. OK? No. Of course, again! You go first, Miles. OK? Let’s take it from the verse, ready? Ruby! Together. Good, good, good. Stop, stop, stop! Good, good, good. Stop, stop, stop! Good, good, good. In the chorus, try the harmony up. Go… ♪There’s no, no looking… ♪ Back for us ♪. Got it? Good! I am not angry at this. Go work and come back. Thank you. Oh, try it on the guitar. You can sing. I mean, you have no control, but your tone is lovely. What are you doing next year? No college? Miles is auditioning for Berklee College of Music. I’ve been coaching him for his audition. What? You don’t now Berklee? Come on! I grew up in Mexico City, and even I knew Berklee. Abe Laboriel, the famous bassist, went there. I did too. They have scholarships. How do you feel when you sing? Try. You would need to sight-read and learn a classical piece. I need your nights and weekends.
I do not waste my time. So if I’m offering, it’s because I hear something.”

“Breathe! Breathe! No, let it out! Let it out! Don’t hold it! Don’t hold it! Ruby, no! If you’re gonna pick Joni Micthell, you gotta sing it. This is one of the great songs. You either find a way to connect to it or pick a different song. OK, come on! Shake your body! Shake it! Shake your arms. Come on! Ha! Now, sing back at me. ♪ Mi, mi, mi, mi! ♪. Come on! No, no, you’re holding it! Yeah! You’re trying to sound pretty! Yes, you are. Oh, OK. You said when you started school, you talked funny. Funny how? What does a deaf person sound like? No, no. I don’t know. I want you to tell me. Different how? ‘Ugly.’ OK. Make an ugly sound for me. Come on! Yeah. You think you were the only kid who ever got bullied, who ever had a funny accent? Look in my eyes! Push against my hands as hard as you can. Push, push! Look at me! Make the ugliest, grossest sound you can. Come on! Ah! Ah! No! Be a monster! Ahhhh! Now sing at me! Yes! That’s it. That’s it! That’s what I was waiting for. Hey! Yes! Whoo!”

Gertie, CODA, AppleTV+. Vendôme Pictures, Pathé Films, Picture Perfect Federation, Amy Forsyth

Gertie

“Guess what? I did it. I hooked up with Tiny Fingers. I don’t know! Curiosity got the better of me. Also, totally wrong! Despite his tiny little baby hands, it’s… mm-hmm. Yeah, we have to change the nickname. Well, at least she’s not doing deaf voice anymore. That’s progress.”

“So, the goal is to find the elective that asks the least of you. Like film club. Also known as ‘put your backpack down and go smoke a bowl.’ Plus, Mr. Wabach is actually pretty hot, you know? Like, in a Comic-Con kind of way. Choir? Are you high? OK, you’re already socially challenged enough here, but sure. If you start, you know, beatboxing or doing that cup clapping thing, we’re done, yeah?”

“No, I really… it might be good for you. Damn, Leo got hot! What? He can’t hear me. Does he work out or are those, like, fishing muscles? Why? OK, I’m sure he doesn’t need his little sister protecting him. Oh, OK. Ruby? What the hell are we listening to? Ruby… no! You find the weirdest shit! Did you get this in the dollar bin? Wait, I have a serious question. What’s the sign for, um… for, ‘you’re really smoking hot?’ What about, ‘we should totally get it on?’ Is it just, u, this? Then show me!”

“Honestly, good for them. I don’t think my mom’s had sex since my dad left. Actually, that not true. Her divorce attorney. Pizza. I think it’s fine. He’s probably already forgotten about it. It’s very cold.”

“♪ To you ♪ Happy birth… ♪”

“Kind of. Yeah.”

So, again? ♪♪ Like the sweet morning dew ♪ I took one look at you ♪ And it was plain to see ♪ You were my destiny ♪ And when I lose my will ♪ You’ll be there to push me up the hill ♪ There’s no, no looking back for us ♪ We got love sure enough… ♪ Back for us ♪. Cool. All right. OK, I’ll work on it.”

“Well, my dad insists guitar is a waste of time because it’s not a true string instrument. They suck the fun right out of it. It’s cool. No way! The Shaggs? I’m really just here to steal these ladies. God! I can’t believe this actually works! Do they, like… do they, like, even get what music is? When we were little, I used to see you guys in town. There was this one time– I think it was, like, 3rd grade– uh, you were at the Seaport Grill, and you were ordering for your parents. And you were talking to the waiter like a total baller. And then you ordered two beers. I thought it was so cool. Yeah. My parents wouldn’t even let me ride the bus by myself. They’re weird. And they hate each other, so there’s that. Uh… yeah, maybe we should, like, I don’t know, sing to each other.”

“♪♪ You’re all I need ♪ To get by ♪ Like the sweet morning dew ♪ I took one look at you ♪ And it was plain to see ♪ You were my destiny ♪. Uh, OK. Well, do you want to try, like, going back to back? All right. ♪♪ You’re all I need ♪ To get by ♪ Like the sweet morning dew ♪ I took one look at you ♪ And it was plain to see ♪ You were my destiny ♪ No looking back for us ♪ We got love sure enough, that’s enough ♪ You’re all ♪ All I need to get by ♪”

“♪ Like an eagle protects his nest ♪ For you I’ll do my best ♪ Stand by you like a tree ♪ And dare anybody to try to move me ♪. What’s that? Is that your mom? Is she OK?”

“Maybe I should– I should go. OK. Nice to meet you!”

“Hey, Ruby! Wait! I didn’t do that, OK? I didn’t tell them. No. No, I didn’t. I told Jay, one person. Come on… we were laughing.”

Fish Market

“How you doing, honey? $2.50. And I’m being generous. Calm your liver. Let me worry about numbers. Sign over here.”

“Listen, just take it easy. I’m just telling you what’s going on, all right? The feds are insisting on at-sea monitors. Observes are gonna come onto your boat to make sure you’re not breaking any rules. It’s $800 a day. I’ve known you guys for years. Come on. Oh, for Christ’s sake! I know it sucks.”

“Uh, 800 for 3. That’s as good as I can go. But I’ll take ’em all, OK? Yeah? All right.”

“Don’t… don’t, don’t! Take it outside! Take it outside! Let’s get out of here!”

Fisherman 1

“You done already for the day? Bullshit quotas, right? What are you gonna give on those haddock? 2 bucks a pound? What’re you gonna take her lunch money too?”

“Yeah, how it is, is I can barely feed my family. That’s out of our pocket? So, I gotta pay to have a spy on my boat? We’re not making a…”

“Hey! I’m going to Pratty’s for a brew. Who wants to go?”

“Hooks his arm around the pole… bear hugging it. But when he does, he loses his pants. They go down to his knees. No word of a lie! Ther ehe is hanging with his milky white, ginger ass hanging out. He’s still thirty feet from the pole! But of course, he’s shit-faced. Shocker!”

Fisherman 2

“Yeah, I can’t even maintain my boat. It’s bullshit!”

“I’m in! Come on, kid!”

Bar Guy

“I’m good! Crashing into shit! Oh, shit! Oh yeah? What is that? Get out of my face. Get out of my face, freak!”

“Do you smell fish? What do you got now?”

Gloucester High Counselor

“OK, just fill this out.”

Doctor

“Right, well, so the layman’s term for what you both have is ‘jock itch.’ It’s common if you spend a lot of time in damp clothes, and it’s– it’s easily transferrable via intercourse. I’ll give you an antifungal cream, but you both have to keep the area dry and avoid sex for two weeks.”
