Euphoria - S02E04 - You Who Cannot See, Think of Those Who Can

Aired on January 30, 2022

Jules kisses Elliot while Rue reflects on her love for Jules. Cassie ends her relationship with Nate after he admits to rekindling his relationship with Maddy. The Howards host a birthday party for Maddy. At the party, Kat admits to Maddy that she doesn’t love Ethan, and Maddy advises her to follow her feelings. Cassie gets excessively drunk; when Nate unexpectedly arrives and discusses his ongoing involvement with Maddy, Cassie changes into a revealing swimsuit and eventually vomits in front of the guests. Rue, Jules, and Elliot entertain themselves by giving each other dares. After narrowly escaping apprehension for a petty theft, Rue begins drinking in front of Jules; the two have an argument that leads to Rue abandoning the group, returning home by herself, taking drugs, and hallucinating her father in a church. Cal gets drunk and drives recklessly to the bar where he kissed Derek. After getting thrown out, he returns home and scathingly criticizes his family for their perceivedly hypocritical hostility to his closetedness. He quickly chooses to leave them. Elliot confesses to Jules that Rue is not sober and that the two have been taking drugs together. Jules is devastated, but sleeps with Elliot anyway.

(sighing softly)

Jules: Does that feel okay?

Yeah, it feels amazing.

Rue: I don’t think you understand how much I love Jules.

Rue: This may be the greatest thing that has ever happened to me. It’s also the first time it’s happened to me.

Jules: Are you sure this feels okay?

Yeah, it’s amazing.

The only problem is, I took so many Narcos, I literally can’t feel a f*ckin’ thing.

Jules: Is there anything you want me to, like… do differently?

Nah, nah. It’s amazing.

Jules: Rue, you keep saying that.

I know, ’cause this is amazing.

Jules: I’ve been doing it for, like, 25 straight minutes.

Yeah, and it’s amazing.

Wait, did I already say it was amazing? I’m so f*ckin’ high. Don’t tell anyone, but she might as well be going down on my ankle.

Jules: Are you, like, close to cumming?

I think so.

Please, God… don’t ever let Jules find out what I’m about to do.

(moaning)

Oh, I’m cumming! Oh!

(high-pitched, staccato moaning)

Rue?

Yeah?

Did you just fake an orgasm?

What? No, no. Are you crazy? That was amazing.

I feel like Rue is too lazy a person to fake an orgasm.

Jules: I’m telling you, Elly, there’s no way she makes the sounds I heard when she actually orgasms.

Like what… sounds?

It was like… (chuckles) it was like… (exaggerated moaning) I’m cummiiing!

Okay, yeah, yeah.

Jules: It’s awful.

Yeah. No, it’s bad.

Maybe she’s just not attracted to me.

Or maybe you, you suck at eating pussy. That could be it.

Oh God, that’s embarrassing.

Elliot: (chuckles) No. It’s cool. You’re new to the game.

Yeah, but it makes me feel like a guy.

Elliot: Why?

‘Cause guys don’t know how to eat pussy.

Oh my god. You want me to show you, bro?

Bitch, I swear to god.

All right, so check it out. Pretend this is your pussy, right?

What are you… Oh.

(chuckles)

Ooh.

Elliot: Uh-huh, there’s that.

And also…

Wow.

(both laughing)

See? Just like that. Here, try me. Try mine.

You sure?

Yeah. No, it’s my hand, not my pussy. It’s okay.

Go ahead. Do your thing. Just like I taught you.

Yeah, but then point your tongue.

Ooh. (faking orgasm)

Oh!

(giggles)

See? And that’s how you make me cum. And you taste good.

(phone buzzes)

(clears throat)

Uh, Rue’s outside. I’m just gonna tuck my dick in my waistband, and, uh…

But I didn’t know you were gonna get back together with her.

How many times do I have to tell you that we’re not back together?

Right, you just hung out and talked about love.

Oh, Jesus f*ckin’ Christ.

If I would’ve known you were gonna get back together, I wouldn’t have done this.

Nate: That’s a lie!

It’s not a lie.

You have this image of yourself as so f*ckin’ sweet and innocent… but it’s bullshit. If you were a f*ckin’ sweet person, you wouldn’t have f*cked your best friend’s boyfriend.

You two were broken up.

Nate: That is a comfort to nobody but you.

I can’t do this.

What, you wanna go tell Maddy?

Maybe I will.

Nate: You’re afraid that I’m still in love with Maddy, so you’re gonna do whatever the f*ck it takes to destroy that. This isn’t about being a f*ckin’ good person, Cassie, or being a f*ckin’ good friend. This is about you getting what you want. You can f*ckin’ leave, or you can get into bed. It’s up to you.

You know what you don’t realize, Nate? Is I don’t care what happens to me. I don’t care how angry Maddy gets. You two shouldn’t be together. You’re toxic.

How would you know?

Cassie: Because she’s my best friend, and I’m in a relationship with you. She’s not good for you, you’re not good for her, and I will do everything I can to prevent it.

Maddy, that’s literally f*cking insane. Madd… Cassie, I s…

See?! This is what I’m talking about!

I, I said Maddy because we’re talking about how f*cking crazy Maddy is, which you can’t seem to f*ckin’ comprehend.

No, what you don’t understand, Nate, is I am crazier!

Nate: That’s not somethin’ to be f*ckin’ proud of, Cassie!

No… but it is something you should be scared of.

What the f*ck? What the f*ck? You can’t f*cking blackmail me into a relationship with you.

Cassie: Blackmail means you don’t have choices. But in reality, you do have choices. You just have to own up to the consequences of them!

That is the literal f*cking definition of blackmail! If you don’t do this, I’m gonna do that…

Fine, it’s blackmail! I don’t care! It doesn’t change anything!

Nate: It’s f*cked up!

You know what’s f*cked up, Nate? You telling me that you love me, and then going and being in a relationship with my best friend!

(yells): What the f*ck?! What the f*ck is wrong with you?! What the f*ck is wrong with you?!

Okay. Bye.

(sighs) For f*ckin’… C… Cassie, stop. I love you.

(bangs wall)

Did you lose weight?

Do I look different?

Do I look different?

I was just wondering.

Then why would you ask?

I was just curious.

Why are you so judgmental?

Why are you so judgmental?

I wasn’t judging you.

You sit on your bed all day just waiting to criticize me.

That’s not true.

Did you lose weight? Are you depressed?

Why haven’t you cleaned your room?

Do you ever think about Dad?

What happened with McKay?

Where were you last night?

Just shut the f*ck up, Grace!

Shut the f*ck up, Lexi!

Fine, I’ll stop caring.

You’re making me feel like I’m going crazy.

Like I’m… actually f*cking crazy.

Well, there’s a difference between what you think you should want, and what you actually want.

How do I know what I want?

You don’t.

Then, what’s the whole world always talkin’ about?

People are retarded.

(laughs)

No, seriously, people are f*cking retarded.

Maddy, I don’t think you can say that word.

This shit is hard and confusing. The last thing you need is to feel worse because you’re not feeling something you’re supposed to feel. You do what feels good to you.

(knocking on door)

Yo, who the f*ck is that?

(pounding on door)

(pounding continues)

Yo!

Custer: Yo.

What’s up, man?

Hey, man. I really gotta talk to you.

Um…

Mm. Hm.

Is everything good, bro?

Custer: Nah, man. Nelson’s baby mama showed up asking all types of stupid-ass questions.

Fuuuck.

(urinating)

Ahhh.

Woo!

Marsha: What, what are you doing?

(Cal laughing)

Are you, are you peeing? Okay, Cal, wh-what is wrong with you?

I think I’m lonely.

(scoffs) What?

I think I’m lonely.

Marsha: Okay, look, could you please put your penis away?

No.

Marsha: Cal, I’m not gonna ask you again. Put your penis away.

I am who I am.

(door opens)

Oh, f*ck.

Mom, what’s goin’ on?

Okay. Cal, put your dick away.

Yo, Dad, what the f*ck are you doing?

I’m sorry.

(laughing) I was just… I was just telling your mother that I think I’m very lonely.

Okay, but, like, can you put your f*cking dick away?

(laughing)

Marsha: Okay, Cal, Cal, this is not funny.

Nate: What’s goin’ on? Dad’s standing in the foyer with his dick out.

Nate: What the f*ck are you doing?

Marsha: I don’t know.

Cal: You know what you three assholes are lookin’ at? The man with no name.

What, what the f*ck are you even saying?

Yo, what the f*ck is going on, guys?

Cal: I’m a rogue. I march to the beat of my own drum. You guys should’ve seen me tonight. I don’t know if you would’ve been proud, but… ya might’ve been impressed.

Cal, listen to me. I think you need to see a doctor. All right? You’re not, you’re not you.

No, Marsha. That’s where you’re wrong. I am 100% me.

Okay, you’re scaring me now.

You know why? ‘Cause I’m a man. I’m an animal. I’m a motherf*ckin’ Rottweiler.

(sighs)

You know how many men I’ve f*cked?

Aaron: What?!

Cal, stop it.

Aaron…

Cal, please. Please stop.

Do you know how many men I’ve f*cked?

Dad, why are you saying this?

Guess.

I, I don’t understand. Like, what the f*ck is going on?

I had sex with a man for the first time… when you… were in your mama’s belly.

Aaron: Dad, why the f*ck are you saying these things? Like, have you lost your f*cking mind? You’re talking about f*cking men in front of Mom when I was, what? Like, what the f*ck is wrong with you? Who the f*ck are you?

Cal: Here’s the funny thing…

(zips pants)

…if I said tonight that… I went to the strip club, and I… Hoo! Picked up a real grade-A piece of ass… huge tits, shaved pussy… and I f*cked the shit outta her in my truck… you wouldn’t be one-tenth as appalled as you are right now. You wouldn’t be standin’ here saying, “Dad, what are you talkin’ about?” You’d be like, “Dad, don’t say that in front of Mom.” F*ck you… F*ck you. You’re a bunch of f*ckin’ hypocrites. I’m a man. I’ll f*ck whoever I want, whenever I want. I’ll f*ck men, I’ll f*ck women, I’ll f*ck transsexuals, and I’ll have a mighty fine time doin’ it. I eat what I kill.

I’m goin’ to bed.

I’m a faggot… sexist, chaser, pig, f*ckin’ creep, and I love it. Living a double life? Not my biggest regret. You are. But let’s be honest, we all live double lives. Don’t give me that look, Marsha. You got that shoebox full of love letters that camp counselor used to write you. You saved them. Flirting on Facebook… I, I, I get it. It feels good to know that you were loved by somebody other than just me. I’m not standin’ here lookin’ at you like, “How could you?”

(closes door)

I mean, we all have secrets. Aaron? The porn on your f*cking computer made my jaw drop. Marsha, come back! You saw it. Your mother’s the one who showed me. Don’t talk to me about secrets. Watching eight people cum on one person’s face, gang-bangs, f*cking cum-funnels, f*ckin’ pissin’ in people’s asses. Jesus f*ckin’ Christ, man. I got problems, you got problems. You know, I was kind of uptight when I met your mother. She was a freak… and a f*ckin’ fox. Marsha… you were a f*ckin’ fox!

Nathaniel… Your whole f*ckin’ life’s a secret. A mystery. Who knows about you? I have lived with you. I have raised you. I am your father. I know nothing about you. That’s not true. I know that you’re angry. I’m so sorry I f*cked you up with my double life. (laughs) Okay, maybe, I took mine to the extreme, I’ll admit that, but… I have a problem. But the reason I have a problem is this family. That’s why. I’m not allowed to form an emotional connection. And I’m an emotional guy. You f*ckers backed me into a corner. But you know what? I think you’ve set me free. So… this is farewell. I left you with a little… memory of me here on the floor of the foyer. You… two dickwads can draw straws to see who cleans it up. I’ll see you assholes later.
