Marina Nunier Osuna, Élite, Netflix, Zeta Producciones, María Pedraza“Are you the new students?  Good luck, then.  You’re gonna need it.” — Marina Nunier Osuna

“Of all the people there, you had to mess with my brother.  And people say we, rich people, don’t suffer.  Thank you.  Shall we?  Hey… in case nobody’s told you, it’s cool having you in class.  Stop being such an asshole.  Guzmán, go to hell.  Seriously, leave him alone.  Guzmán… take this.” — Marina Nunier Osuna

“Mom… you showed me that one yesterday.  The answer remains the same.  For me?  Nobody asked them to.  As a virginal young lady looking for a boyfriend.  What?  Are we never going to talk about it?  Are we never going to talk about it?  I think it’s a great idea.  Besides, it’s my party, right?” — Marina Nunier Osuna

“Hey, would you like to come to a party at my place tomorrow evening?  Because I need somebody else to enjoy it as little as me.  Besides, wouldn’t you like to see my brother’s face?” — Marina Nunier Osuna

“Nadia.  Listen, I’d like you to come to my party.  You can come in your scarf, or without it.  Come as you want, okay?  Hijab.  Lucky you!  I do feel like I’m being forced to have this ridiculous coming out party.  I don’t know.  Give us a chance.  We’re not all like my brother.  It starts at eight.  Samuel has the address.” — Marina Nunier Osuna

“You’ve come.  Dad.  So?  What do you think of my party?  Wouldn’t you love to set us all on fire?  Samuel… sorry I didn’t tell you my father’s construction company… was the one from your school.  I’m not like him.  And to be honest, I think I don’t even like him.  Yeah, he’s very good at solving problems throwing money at them.  Wanna dance?” — Marina Nunier Osuna

“What did he say?  Really?  That’s why he wanted to invite you.  His image makeover bullshit.  He doesn’t waste an opportunity.  Samuel, don’t play along.  You don’t have to.  Nothing.  I don’t know.  I thought you were different.” — Marina Nunier Osuna

“Who?  But only because he had ulterior motives, he wanted a picture with him.  Mom, I don’t know why you are surprised.  You are the only one dad still manages to disappoint.  Why don’t you leave them alone?  Pablo did not mean to hurt me!  Then when? Tell me when is the moment.  Why can’t we talk about what happened?  You’ve spent a fortune on psychologists to convince me nothing happened.  That life goes on.  That everything would be alright.  And you know what?  Every time you avoid the subject, I feel like a piece of shit.  I fell in love with a boy.  He infected me.  I need you to say it!  Say it!  Say it, mom!  ‘My 16-year-old daughter is HIV-positive.'” — Marina Nunier Osuna

“Guzmán!  What are you doing?  Guzmán, don’t take it out on Samuel, he’s a good person.” — Marina Nunier Osuna

“Is Samuel home?  Is Samuel here?  He can come back, no problem.  That’s what I came to tell him.  My brother won’t say anything.  Did you tag my wall?  Next time, finish it.  I liked what you said at the party.  You dared to shout what many of us think.  Or at least I do.  And, is it true you’ve been in jail?  Yes, but for a short spell.  I’m leaving.  Bye.” — Marina Nunier Osuna

“Samuel.  We can work together if you want.  You and I?” — Marina Nunier Osuna

“You’ve been recording for ten minutes.  Seriously, I didn’t plan to work so hard on my part.  Fine, but not here.  I’d feel awkward.  Let’s go.  Come on!  Don’t ask.  We have ten minutes before the basketball players arrive.  And you should know, I’ve shown this to very few of my friends.  Now I’m ready.  Are you recording?  You’ll end up with a great project.  That’s all.” — Marina Nunier Osuna

“Siblings?  Nano.  How’s it going in the kitchen at La Cabaña?  Ok.  I’m writing you get along famously.  Then you can write that I get along with my brother.  What?  I can dance, but posing for photos is entirely different.  Let me see.  This folder.  Yes, that one.  That’s normal.  It’s no secret he’s my father, right?  Well… because… it doesn’t matter.  Let’s do this later, ok?” — Marina Nunier Osuna

“Hi.  I’m looking for Samuel.  Thanks.  Hey.  I was looking for your brother.  How’s everything here.  I can tell.  Hello.  They told me you were out here.  No, thanks.  Enjoy.  Listen… sorry I left like that.  Want to work on the project?” — Marina Nunier Osuna

“My name is Marina, and as you know, I like to dance.  But what I would really like to do is make documentaries.  Do investigative reports.  The truth is, that has always been my dream.  Although, I don’t know now… how could I call myself a journalist if I now have the chance to expose somebody, and I don’t do it?  Not even if I had incriminating evidence?  There’s money in the safe in my father’s office at home.  And, about a year ago, I needed to take some.  We all know the combination.  It’s my date of birth.  So, I opened the safe, and there were photos, documents, and some emails. They were addressed to a minister in the government.  My father was telling him that, because the budget was so tight, the materials might not be of the best quality.  I don’t know, but I think something similar happened with your school.  Now you know more than any of my friends.  Don’t even think of using that in the project, ok?  Don’t even joke about that.  Samuel.  See you tomorrow.  Waiter!” — Marina Nunier Osuna

“You know mom only talks about my pills when she mixes anxiety meds with alcohol?  It’s no picnic for me either.  And the times that are fucked up.” — Marina Nunier Osuna

“Good morning!  Good morning.  A bit sluggish this morning?  I have to show you what I’ve done.  I have your profile almost ready.  How come?  Sure.  Of course.  Are you ok?  I don’t know.  I feel a little exposed, Samuel.  Besides, you end it by saying: ‘sad, intelligent eyes which seem to have suffered so much.’  I don’t know.  Maybe this is nothing but a bored and vain rich girl putting on an act.  To keep guys away and avoid being upended by love again.  You’re not missing out, really.  I don’t know, it scares me.  What are you scared of?  Hi.  What are you doing here?  How did you let him talk you into this?  So is Samu.  Nadia.  Don’t let him tease you too much.  Whistle if you need me, ok?  Sure, it’s right over there.  Use the one downstairs.  He’s in the bathroom.  The one downstairs.  What are you doing?  It’s down there!” — Marina Nunier Osuna

“How are you?  Hey, do they know ho I am?  I’m not like him.  Wow, a reggaeton DJ and a philosopher!  Thanks.  Pablo didn’t drug me.  We smoked a little, that’s all.  I slept with him because I wanted to.  I had bad luck.  You still believe it’s a disease of the poor, right?  Pablo liked rich girls, just like you.  How do you think he got infected?  It can happen to anybody.  It can happen to you too.  HIV doesn’t give a fuck about how big your house is, how much money you make, or how long your list of last names is.  It’s not like you.  Did you bring him here?  He doesn’t need to.  So you’re free to wear a veil, but I can’t take my clothes off?  How does that work?  How did she end up?  Nothing.  She’s come to save my soul.  But it’s a bit late for that.” — Marina Nunier Osuna

“Yes, and you?  Why don’t you introduce me to your friends?  Then why throw this party?  Are you ok?  It’s ok, don’t worry.  No problem, Samuel.  A better time than you, for sure.  You’ve had a sour face all night.  Why have you been looking at me all night?  And go where?  Please, don’t tag the wall, ok?  You think I’m the typical rich girl who’s had nothing bad happen to her?  There’s something you should know.  Shit.  Please, they can’t see you here.  Hello.  Nothing.  You?  And you could leave me alone, right?” — Marina Nunier Osuna

“How do you say ‘I’m still hungover?’  What did you mean the other day when you said she was lost?  Nadia.  We are 16 years old.  If we don’t lose ourselves now, then when?  We have all our lives to find ourselves again.” — Marina Nunier Osuna

“It doesn’t matter.  You didn’t.  Don’t– Samuel, I’m not good for you.  There’s things about me– I am HIV-positive.  It doesn’t matter.  I’m ok with you not saying anything… to anybody.” — Marina Nunier Osuna

“He told you… right?  I’m on medication.  It’s undetectable.  That means I can’t infect you.  Maybe.  Why are you here?  I’m not toying with him.  I feel something, but… you felt something, too.  Didn’t you?  Come on.  Truth.” — Marina Nunier Osuna

“What’s that?  Nailed it the first time.” — Marina Nunier Osuna

“Some 100 guests gorging themselves on seafood and champagne, because they’re super worried about world hunger.  And then, with the funds they raise, they buy cans of chickpeas for the poor.  I’m going because my father’s making me.  Would you like to come with me?  Of course.” — Marina Nunier Osuna

“Dad?  I’m going to need another invitation.  For Samuel, the boy from the party.  Why not?  When it was good for you, you wanted to have photos taken with him.  Oh!  I thought it was about the homeless.  As long as it doesn’t fall on their heads…” — Marina Nunier Osuna

“What’s wrong?  Do you know who I am?  Mom, he’s not my friend.  He’s my boyfriend.  Samuel, let’s go.  What are you doing?  You are an asshole, Guzmán.  Samuel.  I was mad that at the other party you were used for my dad’s pictures, and you– do you have your time machine on you?  I’d love to go back… a half hour, more or less.  I’m sorry.  You don’t know me.  Do you know what I thought when… I found out Pablo had infected me?  That… somehow that secret, that thing we both shared… would bring us together.  That thanks to the HIV… we would always be together.  Which was really sick, and idiotic.  And then he left.  Without saying goodbye.  Is this closer to what you had imagined?  And you.” — Marina Nunier Osuna

“Hi.  Thank you for the award, but I think someone else deserves it more.  I don’t really have much to be proud of this year.  So I wanted to take this opportunity to apologize. Sorry for all the damage I may have caused.  For letting down those I love the most.  And the person who’s made me feel so much in a short time.  I tried to stop it all.  I tried… to be a good daughter, a good sister.  I tried to live up to your feelings, Samuel.  I wish we had our time machine to go back and start from scratch.  But I was myself.  Stubborn, unafraid of danger… and… always getting in trouble.  I’m sorry.” — Marina Nunier Osuna

“Did you see the way people looked at me?  I have nothing here, nobody.  They all hate me, with good reason.” — Marina Nunier Osuna


 Samuel García Domínguez, Élite, Netflix, Zeta Producciones, Itzan EscamillaSamuel García Domínguez

“No, almost four months.  I used to attend San Esteban.  To win over the locals, the construction company decided to fund three scholarships… to study here at Las Encinas.  I was one of the lucky ones.  I’ve done nothing.  I want a lawyer, please.” — Samuel García Domínguez

“What’s up, man?  He’s a buddy of my brother.  You’ve read the constitution? Have you read the handbook?  You liked to swim, didn’t you?  What else is forbidden?  They don’t allow anything cool?  Cool.  Yes.” — Samuel García Domínguez

“Hi.  My name is Samuel… and I feel like anything I say will be used against me, so I’ll better remain quiet.  I know.  That’s what I fear.  Alright.  My name’s Samuel, and I am, as your classmate said, a waiter.  Strange as it may seem to you, sometimes waiters get a seat at the table.  But you don’t need to worry, I’m not here to take anybody’s place.  You are still the leaders of tomorrow.  You’re welcome.” — Samuel García Domínguez

“That was your brother?  I see.  My condolences.  Thanks.” — Samuel García Domínguez

“Shouldn’t you be worrying about other things now?  About the fact that you speak no English, for instance?” — Samuel García Domínguez

“The change may end up not being all that bad.  How is your new school?  The award will be a reggaeton concert.  Christian got 14 stitches.  With any luck, the same will happen to you at your new school.  Roofs do collapse.” — Samuel García Domínguez

“Hi.  Yes.  What are you doing here?  Yes!  But have they let you out?  I can’t tonight.  I work tonight, Nano.  What if they find out I’m lying?  It’s the only job we have since you left.” — Samuel García Domínguez

“Why would you invite me to a party?  Okay.” — Samuel García Domínguez

“There are none left.  You want my notes from class?  Nano, can you tell me where we’re going?  What?  No!  What are you doing?  Don’t even think about it!  Nano!  You just got out of jail, and this is the dumbest shit you could do!  Nano, someone’s coming!  Nano!  Someone’s coming, let’s go!  Come on!” — Samuel García Domínguez

“What are you doing here?  Yeah, man, don’t worry.  Hi.  Ok.  I’ll order a glass of water, just in case.  Right.  It would have been good to know.  But he’s done all this for you.” — Samuel García Domínguez

“Yes.  ‘S.’  ‘This above all: to thine own self be true.’  It’s a quote from Hamlet.  I don’t know.  I wouldn’t feel comfortable doing it, to be honest.  He wants a picture with the scholarship students.  Yes.  I don’t mind doing it.  What’s wrong?  Let’s go.” — Samuel García Domínguez

“I had it under control, and you had to come and screw it up.  And now I must clean up after you!  I never asked you for that!  Your whole life you’ve been blaming them, maybe you are the cancer.” — Samuel García Domínguez

“Wasn’t this language and literature class?  Ok.” — Samuel García Domínguez

“Nano, are those burgers ready?  Get a move on.  I said you had experience.  They’re complaining.  Hurry.  Sorry.  We have new staff.  You know I can’t answer back.  That’s why you’re doing this.  Nano, what’s going on?  Nano, tell me what’s going on.” — Samuel García Domínguez


Inspectora, Élite, Netflix, Zeta Producciones, Ainhoa SantamariaInspectora

“Samuel.  I have to ask you some questions.  You haven’t been at this school for long, right?  San Esteban, the school that collapsed?  Calm down.  It’s going to be alright.  You were in the same class.  Samuel.  You’d be saving us a lot of time and work if you answered a simple question.  Why did you have blood on you?” — Inspectora

“Christian, it can happen to anyone, going too far.  It’s the end of the school year party… there’s alcohol.  I don’t know, maybe a fight gets out of control.  These are just questions.  but if you don’t want to cooperate, we can take you to the station.  With your parents, and a lawyer.  How did you get that injury?  Why do I get the feeling you are lying to me?” — Inspectora

“Did you have any problems with the other students?  How was your relationship with the students at the school?  Did you get along?  Were you friends?” — Inspectora

“Just one more thing, Nadia.  Help us, and then you can go.  What can you tell me about this trophy?  We think it’s the murder weapon.  We’ve been told you wanted to win it more than anything.” — Inspectora

“So according to you, everything started with the arrival of the new students.  Are you referring to the new students as if they were another species?” — Inspectora


Christian Varela Expósito, Élite, Netflix, Zeta Producciones, Miguel HerránChristian Varela Expósito

“Samu!  How are you?  Hello, beautiful.  Shit, sorry.  You’re not gonna sacrifice yourself because of what I said, right?  This is a fucking paradise, man.  Can’t you smell it?  Those chicks pee cologne, dude.  I’m telling you.  Let’s take a walk around, okay?  Look at that.  They stare as if we were Martians.  Come, a photo, right?  Let’s take a selfie, or something.  Let’s take a look around.  That’s against the constitution.  No.  I’m waiting for the movie.  Whoo!  The swimming pool is bigger than the school!  Óle.  Whoo-hoo!  Sorry!  Don’t cry!  What’s up, guys!  I’m Christian.  Hi there.  Hello.  Is it taken?  Oh!  Enjoy his company.  Damn.  Wasn’t this a tutorial class?  Yes.  What’s he saying?  Ah!  Yes.  Um…. hello.  Um… goodbye?  Thank you, mister teacher.” — Christian Varela Expósito

“Who do you think calls the shots here?  Come on, it’s not ‘nothing,’ it’s ‘a little but.’  I got it all under control.  You lend me your notes ‘in English…’ and I translate them online to know what it’s all about.  Wait, do you think I am here to study?  No.  I’m here to meet the people who rule the roost.  They are not those with the best grades, but those who make the best friends.  Watch.  What party?  Anybody say party?  Hi, I’m Christian.  Oh, sorry.  By the way, are you on Instagram?  I can give you mine, if you want.  It’s ‘pekechristian007,’ the first one is a ‘K.’  So, what about this party?  Who do I need to talk to about getting an invite?  You’ve never partied with me.  And if I don’t feel like it.” — Christian Varela Expósito

“What do I have to do with it?  Can you interrogate me if my parents are not present?  I hit myself on a door.” — Christian Varela Expósito

“Son of a bitch!  Cool.  Hey!  Have you seen my uniform?  No?  Nothing?  You haven’t seen my clothes?  Hello, beautiful.  You haven’t seen my clothes, really?  No?  Come on!  There we are!  Alright, then.  Fuck you all.  Enjoy the view!  This too, come on.  Wouldn’t you like to have this ass.” — Christian Varela Expósito

“You’re Ander, right?  I’ve seen all your trophies, man.  I’m crazy about tennis.  Thanks a lot, man.  You’re alright.” — Christian Varela Expósito

“Don’t worry, he’ll be here.  I talk to him ten minutes ago.  Besides, nobody will see you here, man.  Don’t worry.  Of course!  What’s he gonna do?  Go on TV to say a rich boy is buying joints?  Come on!  That wouldn’t be news.  Who’s going to find out?  I won’t tell anyone, don’t worry, man.  Besides, I don’t even have any friends in there.  Or do I?  Yeah!  Good man!  By the way, man, I wanted to ask you something.  Why do you all mess with us so much?” — Christian Varela Expósito

“Hey!  What’s up, man?  How are you?  I’ll introduce you, Mr. X, Mr. Dealer.  Sorry, no real names.  Have you seen how well-mannered?  You can’t complain, I bring you quality clients.  Don’t you forget.  By the way, you and I will talk.  You owe me one!” — Christian Varela Expósito

“So good to see you!  When will the others be released?  It figures.  I almost didn’t live to tell it.  I got a huge cut in my head.  But, that got me a ticket to fancy-land.  Let’s give your brother a drink, we’re losing him!  A little stuck on that topic, isn’t he?  I mean, I don’t know, Nano is like a brother to me, you know.  And… my brother’s brother is also my brother, right?” — Christian Varela Expósito

“I love her!  No.  That one?  For real?  No, come on, she deserves much better.  You’re fucking kidding me!  Yeah.  I’ll be watching this one.” — Christian Varela Expósito

“Fuck, man, this doesn’t pull well.  I’m not laughing, for a first joint, made with a tutorial, it’s not bad.  By the way, why the fuck don’t you wanna go to the party?  I’m not obsessing, you may be used to all of this stuff and this luxury, but I’m not, this is all new to me.  I’m excited about it.  You don’t?  Then what the fuck are you doing at that school?  Son of a bitch!  You are fucking plugged in!  Of course.  Completely, yes.  Of course I do, man!” — Christian Varela Expósito

“What’s up, Samu?  You didn’t expect to see me here, huh?  Let’s go in!  Wow, you rich people know how to throw a party!  I don’t know.  Do you want me to stay?  If you say yes, I’ll stay forever.” — Christian Varela Expósito

“I call the tow truck, and they don’t come for me.  Come on, … we have things to do.  What is this?  Olé.  Okay.  You too.  Let’s do it at the same time.  Am I doing it right?” — Christian Varela Expósito

“Welcome to Las Encinas, man.  I just have a question.  What can I improve in my profile?  Nothing!  So, want to work together?  You won’t have much to do.  My profile rules.  And once we upload some photos of your trophies and the girls you get, yours willbe done in no time.  Then we can smoke a joint.” — Christian Varela Expósito

“You’re making fun of me?  No.  I think you are.  Fucking rich people!  Fucking snobs!  No!  Do you realize what you have?  Take care of her, please, man!” — Christian Varela Expósito

“You can stay at my place.  Life sucks, Nano.” — Christian Varela Expósito

“I am fed up, Carla.  I want you to see me as an equal.  I want to be your boyfriend, for real.  And I know I am poor and you are a marchioness, and our relationship is only possible in Disney movies.  But if we’re going to try, I want to really try.  To go all in.  I don’t want to be your gigolo, or your thief, or someone you can use.  So laugh all you want now.” — Christian Varela Expósito


Nadia Shana, Élite, Netflix, Zeta Producciones, Mina El HammaniNadia Shana

“Do you know each other?  You get used to it.  You can’t use your cell phone here.  If they catch you, they’ll take it, and keep it for a week.  It’s in the handbook.  When your name is Nadia Shana, you better know what can get you expelled.  Just in case.  Drinking, smoking on the grounds, doing drugs.  Depends on what you think is cool.  In English.  It’s a bilingual school.  You knew that right?  Introduce yourself.  Hello.  I’m Nadia.  I’m 16.  My family is from Palestine.  But I was born here in Spain.  And when I finish my studies, I’d like to be a professional diplomat in the United Nations.  And how can you win it?” — Nadia Shana

“No one had mentioned the scarf.  Why now? My hijab is not supplementary.  Besides, everybody has things around here.  Expensive bags, gold watches. They do.  They mean many things.  They mean ‘I have more money than you, more style than you.  I’m better than you.’  Look, if you understood… you wouldn’t ask me to give up my culture or my religion.” — Nadia Shana

“I’m not going to give you my notes.  And you shouldn’t be here.  You’re taking a spot somebody else actually needs.  Very good.” — Nadia Shana

“No.  Not with anybody.  Why?  What?  Just me?” — Nadia Shana

“I wish.  Thanks, but no.” — Nadia Shana

“How are you?  Thank you, but it isn’t my scene.  It’s called a hijab.  Not a scarf.  And nobody forces me to wear it.” — Nadia Shana

“Thanks.  I don’t drink.  I’m leaving soon.  I thought I was the one judging.  But I can see you’ve decided what I think and what I don’t.  Is this about me not accepting the champagne, or are you a born racist?  Don’t worry.  I’ve come to Las Encinas to study.  I’m not interested in anything beyond that.  Or you were.  Right?  Your sister is right.  Samuel is a good person.  Me, not so much.  If you say anything at school, you’ll force me to tell what I saw in the shower.  Thanks for inviting me.  You are too good looking over your shoulder.  This one needs to be taken down a peg or two.” — Nadia Shana

“But we have nothing in common.” — Nadia Shana

“They forbade it, dad.  I had no choice.  I would have been expelled.  Because thanks to that school… I can one day be one of those who make the rules.  Not one who needs to obey them.” — Nadia Shana

“Dad maybe I haven’t changed.  Maybe the old me wasn’t me.  It was a girl who tried to please her parents above all.  Maybe I’m different.  No.  I don’t know who I am yet.  But I’m going to find out.  I hope you and mom can accept that, and love me.  But I’m going to be myself, dad.  Myself.” — Nadia Shana


Omar Shana, Élite, Netflix, Zeta Producciones, Omar AyusoOmar Shana

“Imagine, I’m a Muslim, I don’t play soccer.  And I was caught reading a book in the hallway.  There’ll be wanted signs with my face tomorrow.  I’m a dead man, then.  Shit, man, I wish some rubble had fallen on me when the school collapsed.  Yeah, and a scholarship to Las Encinas, dickhead.  No such luck, I’m afraid.  You’re the worst!” — Omar Shana

“How was your first day?  Hi.” — Omar Shana

“Nadia wants to go to the party.  And my father says if there’s no alcohol, and there’s parents there… say yes, I want to go home.” — Omar Shana


Guzmán Nunier Osuna, Élite, Netflix, Zeta Producciones, Miguel Bernardeau Guzmán Nunier Osuna, Élite, Netflix, Zeta Producciones, Miguel BernardeauGuzmán Nunier Osuna

“Look at this one.  Not there!  By an invisible friend.  If I were you, I’d watch out for this one.  She’ll give you no quarter.  What did the waiter say?  He’s talking to us.  Sorry.  Thank you.” — Guzmán Nunier Osuna

“Hello.  Where are you going?  We’ll walk with you.  Watch that mouth.  We’re only trying to be friendly.  What’s the matter, waiter?  Do you like my sister?  She’s a fan of lost causes… let us have him for a while.  We want to get to know him.  Or are you afraid of us?  He is, yeah.  Waiter… don’t lay a hand on my sister.  Imagine you have a restraining order.” — Guzmán Nunier Osuna

“I was talking to my friends.  I’ve fucking had it with these people.  I don’t understand how they got into this school.  I don’t.  My sister’s coming out party is private, like our conversation.  You had a roof collapse on you, right?  Maybe the blow impaired your ability to take a hint.  Shall I say it in English, so you get it?  Goodbye.  Look… as you’re slow-witted, you don’t get how things work here.  But your friend there is starting to get it.” — Guzmán Nunier Osuna

“Is it that hard to be a bit more enthusiastic?  Mom and dad are doing this for you.  A moron, a fundamentalist, and one with raised fist.  As a joke, they’d be priceless.  Are you serious?  Have you lost your mind?” — Guzmán Nunier Osuna

“What?  What is it?  Shit!” — Guzmán Nunier Osuna

“It’s her word against us.  This is all your fault.  Yes, you and your silly obsession with doing it in public places.  Hello.  Sorry about yesterday.  We thought we were alone.  Look, I know we started off on the wrong foot.  I’d like to fix that.  Why don’t you come tonight to my sister’s coming out party?  We can get to know each other.” — Guzmán Nunier Osuna

“Can you explain to me why you’ve brought the influencer?  It’s my home, Ander.  Look… I forgive you, because you’re really drunk.  But I wouldn’t have betrayed you like that.  Never!” — Guzmán Nunier Osuna

“Why are you like this, Lu?  I don’t want her here either.  But we have to do something, so she won’t tell on us.  Let’s hear it.  You want me to hook up with the Palestinian girl, who walks around school in a turban?  But I already do whatever I want with you.” — Guzmán Nunier Osuna

“Those people are poison, Marina, and you know it.  Why are you with them every time I turn around, Marina?  Why?  Because I refuse to let you get hurt again, Marina!” — Guzmán Nunier Osuna

“You!  You get a scholarship, and you thank us like this?  Vandalizing the property of others?  You disgust me!  And who are you?  Unbelievable, the riffraff we get here tonight!  I’m not insulting you, just stating the facts.  You dare come to this house to insult me and my family.  Who do you think you are, fucking clown?  Get off me!  You!  Hey!  You are finished! Tomorrow, everybody at school will know you are a fucking criminal!  And forget about your scholarship.” — Guzmán Nunier Osuna

“Polo… why don’t you go for a walk and stop making a fool of yourself?  Go!  Let’s see what the principal says tomorrow.  Nadia.  Nadia, you win.  I spoke in the heat of the moment.  I won’t tell on your friend.  Stay little longer.  Let me show you we are worth the trouble.  Teach me how to look at you.  I promise I’ll be a fast learner.” — Guzmán Nunier Osuna

“To do what?  Want to work together?  Even better.  We can learn more about each other.” — Guzmán Nunier Osuna

“You must have done something.  You have to take care of her.  You won’t find another one like her.  I’ve told you before, haven’t I?  Huh?  Put your phone down, please.  We are here!  Hey, waiter, thank you.  I’ve had faster service.  I wish you were as good at working as you are at making excuses.  This is overcooked.  He’s talking to me.  You’re leaving?  How come?  But finish your food.” — Guzmán Nunier Osuna

“You’re so much fun when you drink.  Lu, don’t be mean.  Handsome guys look good whatever they wear.  Well, well, let’s start with a drink.” — Carla Rosón

“Here?  Right now?  Hello.  We have 15 minutes before they realize I’m not there.  Are you taking your clothes off?  That comes off, too.  But slowly, so I can see you.  Yes, you’re doing fucking great.” — Carla Rosón

“It was… intense.  But it was good.  Good night.” — Carla Rosón

“What a silly thing to say.  Of course we’ll work together.” — Carla Rosón

“Our lives are already written.  And I’m not saying they’re bad lives.  But, why not stray from the script, at least a little bit?” — Carla Rosón

“You wanted to be my boyfriend, right?  To be one of us.  For me to treat you like an equal.  Then you must know that, among us, we always protect each other.” — Carla Rosón

“‘Mister teacher.’  Ridiculous.  Wasn’t this a secular school?  How darling!” — Lucrecia Montesinos Hendrich

“What time’s the party?  Yes.  Hello!  Do you speak Spanish?  Yes, please!  Pekechristian.  Pekechristian.  Oh, no!  Wow, this video!  Look at this.  Do not touch me!  Cool video.” — Lucrecia Montesinos Hendrich

“Your hair looks nice today. Guzmán!  We’ve been seen, damn it!  Shit!  We’ve been seen!” — Lucrecia Montesinos Hendrich

“You want to risk them believing her?  Mine?  Sure.  As if you didn’t like it.  Have a nice day.  Boo!” — Lucrecia Montesinos Hendrich

“Are you color blind?  Or did you not turn on the light when you got dressed?  We’ve already said hi.  Are you staying?  Please.  Ah, move aside.  Only alcohol can make this tolerable.  Here.  It’s going to be a hard night, then.  Of course.  Why give us a chance if you’ve already passed judgement on us all, right?  Here’s everything you hate about the West.  All the sinful decadence.  With a scarf on your head, you can’t possibly think much, dear.  Forgive me.  Oh, no, forgive me.  Sorry, I came here in peace, I swear.  I’m sure you and I have something in common.  Let me give you some advice, dear.  You can do it all.  Look at me.  I date.  I have fun, a lot.  And I’m top of the class.” — Lucrecia Montesinos Hendrich

“What?  Don’t you see?  It’s not about the skirt, I don’t care.  It’s about the Taliban girl.  That little hypocrite.  Wearing a scarf on your head makes you superior to us?  Please, how ridiculous!  I have an idea.  I propose a game.  Why don’t you seduce her?  Then everybody finds out… and that’s that.  Oh, sweetie… the idea of making a virginal Muslim girl fall for you doesn’t turn you on?  Come on, you woo her, she falls for you, everybody finds out… that’s it!  We cut her down to size, she can’t act all superior anymore.  Not even if I ask you?  Then I’ll let you do whatever you want with me.  Not even half of it.” — Lucrecia Montesinos Hendrich

“What’s going on, honey?” — Lucrecia Montesinos Hendrich

“When a new species is introduced into an ecosystem, it is always altered.  The new one can devastate the flora and fauna of a place, breed endlessly, or cause more subtle changes which end up perverting everything.  I don’t want to believe that Marina’s… dead.” — Lucrecia Montesinos Hendrich

“When he was talking about privilege and intelligence, he didn’t mean you.  Here’s your chance.  What do you mean, ‘to do what?’  Our plan for Miss Palestine.  Go and tell her you want to work with her.  See you tomorrow.” — Lucrecia Montesinos Hendrich

“Martin, do you know why I’m thin?  Because I always see myself fat.  Do you know why I’m the best?  Because I’m never satisfied.  Are you happy earning €1,000 a month?  Repeating the same shit in class every day?  Besides, who wants to be happy nowadays?  When they can be the best.” — Lucrecia Montesinos Hendrich

“Come, let’s go, Guzmán.” — Ander

“No, why?  No, I’m not.  I just saved your ass.  You could pay me back.  But can he be trusted, or not?  I just don’t want them to know at school.  Shoot.  Something happened with a scholarship student.  The son of one of the cooks.  And they halted scholarships for a full year.  It was a huge mess.  Until you arrived.  Thank you, much obliged.” — Ander

“Who?  Carla?  Her mother is a Spanish grandee.  Do you know the Marquesado de Caleruega wines?  That’s her mommy, the marchioness.  Well, and that guy, Polo, is her boyfriend, since they were 12.  If I were you, I’d watch out for the girls here.” — Ander

“Don’t laugh at the newbie, okay?  Still obsessing about the party, give me a break!  What do you think?  That I live like the rest of them?  Not even close.  Kid, I’m the principal’s son.  Anyway… you want to go, right?  Are you positive?  Do you have anything decent to wear?” — Ander

“Here you have it, a coming out party in all its ridiculousness!  What is it for?  In other times, to find a husband quickly.  Nowadays it’s more to widen your network.  Although the husband thing is not ruled out.  You’ve brought the girl, right?  I don’t know, because he really wanted to come.  Nothing’s going to happen.  This whole crusade of yours against them is ridiculous.  What betrayal, Guzmán?  What betrayal?  Fucking champagne!  Where’s the beer?” — Ander

“Hey.  Shut up!  It’s my dad.  He wants me to train.  Sorry.  Just eat it.  It looks good.  Guys, I’m leaving.  Gotta train, I told you.  If I do, I’ll be late.  See you tomorrow.” — Ander

“I’m thinking, today would be a good day to do it.  Right?  Well, I don’t know.  And why not?  But if you’re not sure, let’s forget about it.” — Polo

“Do you regret tonight?  Sure?  I love you.  I love you more than ever.” — Polo

“Guzmán, please.  Are you okay?  Did they hurt you?  Does it hurt a lot?” — Polo

“Boom!  Take that.  You are with me, right?  That way, I’ll get to see you more.  You’ve been avoiding me.” — Polo

“I don’t know where she is.  Carla’s avoiding me.  She read my message.  It’s blue.  Why won’t she answer.  Should I write to her again or… send her an audio message?  I’ll send her an audio message.  Yeah.” — Polo

“I can’t believe it.  Explain it to me, please.  You knew it was him who ruined our wall, and you let him in our home?  The thin one.  What?  Marina!  It’s not the moment.  Please.” — Beatriz Nunier Osuna

“Pleased to meet you.  The balls on you, kid, showing up here!  Don’t you know we have security cameras?  Shall we talk later?” — Ventura Nunier Osuna

“Hey.  Samuel, right?  What exactly did you mean to write here, on my front wall?  T-H-I… ah.  Yes, of course, a quote from Hamlet.  Ingenious.  But… I think you wanted to write… thief, son of a bitch, or one of those names the press is calling me lately.  Bring the other two scholarship kids, and we’ll take a photo of the four of us.  Shaking hands and smiling.  Come, man.  What’s wrong with taking a photo?  It could be good for everybody.  For the town, for the school, even for you.  It’s ok, kid.  I’ll report your brother to the police tomorrow, see what happens to his parole.” — Ventura Nunier Osuna

“He looks like a minister.  Little brother!  Little brother!  Goodness me!  Doing well in fancy-land?  I’m ready to fight anybody who bothers you.  What, you’re not happy to see me?  No, I’m still there.  what do you think?  Come, let’s have a beer.  Wow!  This is nice, right?  The family goes out tonight.  You can.  Call in sick, and that’s it.  Is this how it’s gonna be?  Samu, I didn’t leave.  They made me leave.” — Fernando García Domínguez

“Here we go, now we are all set.  Hey, my man!  Twelve, thirteen, fourteen… hang in there!  Fifteen, sixteen, that’s it!  So, they make a school collapse, and get away with it.  Can’t wrap my fucking head around that!  What do I know, man?  That’s how the world works.  Some of us in jail for some small shit, and the real crooks out on the street.  It’s no joke, Christian, what if there had been casualties?  This is not okay.  This country is a fucking joke.  None?  I can solve that in a second.  Be right back.  Look at him, like a baby.  Catch!  I have a romantic idea worthy of a movie.  Jaime, I’m borrowing it.  To visit our friend the constructor, so he remembers us.  Get off.  Get off!  Keep watch.  Yes, let’s enjoy it, Samu.  What?  Motherfucker…” — Fernando García Domínguez

“What’s going on here?  Shall I take that as a compliment or punch you?  I won’t let this prep boy insult us.  One question.  What do you call people who keep millions that don’t belong to them, so they can live the way you do.  Thieves, or simply bastards?  Okay.  You don’t deserve my brother!  Shove your money up your asses!” — Fernando García Domínguez

“Do you plan to remain mute all night?  Had I know, I wouldn’t have stood up for you.  You are clueless, aren’t you?  Do you know what I’ve done for you?  I was protecting you, asshole!  It’s what I’ve been doing my whole life.  Come on, Samu!  I won’t let those people, who are a real cancer, laugh at you!” — Fernando García Domínguez

“He’s sleeping.  He was up all night hugging the toilet.  Says it’s hangover.  I think it’s the panic of having to go back to that fucking school.  Very well.  Was there anything else?  Coffee, water, beer?  Sit down, if you want.  My letter of introduction.  Somebody had to say it.  You love to ask questions, huh?  Sleeping rough, eating worse.  No women, unless you count my mother or lawyer.  A second aunt from Murcia, I’m not sure why she came all the way up to see me… none like you, I can tell you that.  Stay another minute, and I’ll make you iron.  Better.  Bye.  Here you go.  Washed and pressed.  By the way… fancy girl was here.  She wants you to go back to school.” — Fernando García Domínguez

“Motherfucker.  Almost there.  Why the hurry?  Samu, don’t bust my balls.  Here you are.  We were so happy in this town without these snobs!” — Fernando García Domínguez

“I get it.  Yes.  Nothing.  Besides, they’re leaving, right?  Give me time.  Samu, it’s nothing.  Forget it.” — Fernando García Domínguez

You know, every year we choose our best student, and… the trophy is rather ugly, but it allows you to study the following year at… who can tell me where?  Carla.  By standing out in all activities.  Cirricular and extracurricular.  The more extracurricular, the better.  Photography, chess, Chinese, check out the list.  Samuel García.  Don’t be afraid.  At this school we teach values.  Manners and respect are paramount.  The leaders of tomorrow are at this school.  Guys.” — Martín

“Nadia.  Can you come with me for a moment?  The principal wants a word.  Nadia, we understand you, really, but–” — Martín

“Nowadays, we use social networks to present ourselves to others.  What we show, or what we hide, says a lot about who we are.  And this is what the pair work I want you to do is about.  I want you to create your partner’s profile for a social network.  We can demonize social networks, like other schools do, but… we can also use them to learn.  Please, take advantage of the opportunity to investigate, to question each other.  And most of all, adapt this to your goal.  What is it, Christian?  It can be improved.  Guys… please, be creative.  Use photos, videos, interviews, whatever you want.  You have all the school’s resources at your disposal.  Nobody leaves util they have a partner.  Choose one and come by my desk.” — Martín
