Fit Check: Confessions of an Ukay Queen (2023): Season 1, Episode 7 - Episode #1.7 - full transcript

Melanie gives Georgina a chance to admit the latter's mistakes toward the former, but Georgina remains hard-hearted and unrepentant. Soon after, Georgina and Steve's wedding turns into a heartbreaking event when Melanie exposes th...

What happened was an accident!

I'm sure not even God
wanted it to happen!

What happened?

How come you suddenly stopped
communicating with me?

I think it would be best
for both of us

if we spend some time apart.

Here you go, dear.

The case against you
has been dismissed.

Would you know
where Daddy had that made?

I'm planning to give
Ma'am Georgina a replica.

It'll be my way of
apologizing to and thanking her.



- Yes?
- Hello! Are you Mister Victor?

I'd like to have
this ring replicated.

How's your father doing?

Is that model your mom?

You know who my mother is?

[MELANCHOLIC MUSIC PLAYING]

[AVEL] Be strong, dear.

You're a brave girl,
and don't you ever forget it.

Perhaps...

Someday, your mother
will meet you.

Make sure
that when that happens,

you've already made
a name for yourself.

[EXHALES DEEPLY]

[MELANCHOLIC MUSIC CONTINUES]



Melanie.

Here's the ring
you had duplicated.

The delivery guy
just dropped it off.

[AVEL] Prove to her
that she was wrong.

- [SNIFFLES]
- [YOUNG MELANIE SNIFFLES]

That she made a mistake
by not valuing you.

[DULCE] I hope this helps you

get back
on Georgina's good side.

And I hope...

that you both would be able
to recover from whatever damage

this whole thing has caused.

- [AVEL] Show her...
- [YOUNG MELANIE SNIFFLING]

that you can become successful
even without her around...

[BREATHES LABORIOUSLY]

and that you
will never, ever need her.

[MELANCHOLIC MUSIC CONTINUES]

[FOOTSTEPS LEAVING]

[SOBS]

Oh! Trees with gypsophilas.

Lovely.

Isn't it?

[SIGHS DEEPLY]

That's Dave Sandoval,

and he promised me
an unforgettable wedding.

Well, tell Dave
to decorate the place

with more flowers
to mask the stench of your past

and to get rid

- of Steve's doubts about you.
- [SIGHS DEEPLY]

For the record,

Steve has forgiven me
for that Melanie scandal.

So please zip it.
Never bring it up again.

I know one thing
Steve will not forgive you for.

You know, you can be
so annoying, Mac.

[INHALES DEEPLY, SIGHS SHARPLY]

We don't have
to worry about Melanie.

That girl is gone for good.
We'll never see her again.

That's exactly why I agreed
to withdraw the case.

Because I knew...

that Chris was going
to end things with Melanie.

So...

[INHALES DEEPLY, SIGHS SHARPLY]

We don't have
to worry about her.

I don't have
to deal with her again.

But imagine...

If Chris hadn't broken things
off with her... [LAUGHS]

[LAUGHING] you and your daughter
might eventually become in-laws!

Keep it down.
Somebody might hear you.

[MAC WHISPERING] Oh my god!

[GEORGINA]
What are you doing here?

What?!

[MELANIE] I didn't come here
to start a fight.

In fact, I wanted
to bury the hatchet with you.

But now, I think...

I think I just want answers.

I firmly believe that when
a person does something bad,

they have to pay for it.

- [GEORGINA STOMPS FOOT]
- I was not raised by my grandma

and my dad, for that matter,

to be someone who runs away
from her mistakes

and responsibilities.

We already withdrew the case,
didn't we?

What else do you want?

Is this you asking
for forgiveness?

I forgive you.

- Here.
- [GASPS]

You really like this, right?

That's what you told
my grandma, right?

- [GEORGINA BREATHES HEAVILY]
- [EMOTIONAL MUSIC PLAYING]

[GEORGINA] I'm good.

I'm okay.

You don't have to.
It's okay.

I'm sorry I can't give you
the original

because it's very important
to me, my grandma,

and especially my dad.

I had the ring
you like duplicated.

Now, I'm giving it to you
as a peace offering.

I want to apologize
for everything I did to you.

O-Okay!

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

Just...

[WHISPERS] Just go!

Just go now.

I already apologized
and owned up to my mistakes.

What about you?

Are you really not going
to stop?

Is it really that hard
to admit it?

Is it really so hard
to own up to

and take responsibility
for something you did?

What do you want from me?!

Really?

[EMOTIONAL MUSIC CONTINUES]

Really?!

[MELANIE SOBS]

Guard.

Guard, please help us here.

- Please...
- [MELANIE] No need for that.

I'm leaving.

- [EMOTIONAL MUSIC CONTINUES]
- [FOOTSTEPS LEAVING]

[CHRIS] I'm... I-I'm sorry
if I hurt you before.

I had to concentrate on SFX

so I prioritized
my commitment to Papa

over our relationship.

You left Melanie
for your father...

because he hates her.

My father thinks

that Melanie is all what you
and Georgina painted her to be.

But the fact is...

I didn't choose Papa
this time around.

Because I chose to save Melanie.

I-I'm sorry if I didn't love you
the way I love Melanie.

[MOROSE MUSIC PLAYING]

- [MICHAEL] I saw you earlier.
- [TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

You were talking to Georgina.

The case against you
has been dropped.

What else do you want?

Is it Chris?

I love your son, sir.

And I understand why he did
what he did.

But what I don't understand

is why Georgina has yet
to express remorse

and pay for
what she has done.

I assure you...

Georgina will face
the consequences of her actions

once it's proven that, uh, she
intentionally ruined your name.

This is no longer about that,
Sir Michael.

This is about
what Georgina did wrong

as a mother.

What are you talking about?

I'm Georgina's daughter.

You're insane!

I'll prove to you
that I'm telling the truth.

[HUFFS]

[MICHAEL BREATHES HEAVILY]

Don't you ever bother
any of us ever again!

Are you still in touch
with the Blancos' organizers?

Why?

[SEWING MACHINE WHIRRING]

[MELANIE] I need your help.

I'm attending the wedding.

[MUSIC DECRESCENDOS]

[GEORGINA]
I'm not easy to love.

Because I'm already married.

To my career...

To my dreams...

["WEDDING MARCH" CONTINUES]

But when I met you,

I realized
I can give up everything.

Because you're the only dream
worth keeping.

I want to go
to where Uncle Chris is.

You can't. Maybe later, okay?

I've given up so much...

so many things in my life
just to get to where I am now.

[BARBIE WHISPERING] Okay, okay.

- [BARBIE GRUNTS]
- [CAR DOOR OPENS]

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

[CAR DOOR CLOSES]

[BARBIE] Wait, wait, wait.

Marga, thank you.

You're doing the right thing.

But looking back...

Thinking about all the things
I lost...

[PHONE BUZZING]

[GEORGINA] All my sacrifices...

- "Sir, emailed a document...
- I won't change a thing.

...from the New Life
Medical Center. Positive, sir."

Because they all led me
to this day...

with you.

- Melanie! Let's go.
-[MARGA] It's fine. Let them in.

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC CONTINUES]

[GEORGINA] Steve...

You're that something better

that came to replace
everything I lost.

Let me give you my heart.

[GEORGINA SIGHS]

Let me give you my whole life.

Because when you love,

you love unconditionally.

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC CONTINUES]

[CLAPPING SLOWLY]

- [MUSIC STOPS]
- [CLAPPING SLOWLY]

[MELANIE] Wow!

Unconditional love?

Isn't that the kind of love

you're supposed
to give your child?

Because every parent should love
their child unconditionally.

- [CHRIS] Melanie.
- No, Chris. No.

[GEORGINA BREATHES NERVOUSLY]

Melanie...

Don't embarrass yourself here.

Please. Just go home.

[MICHAEL] No.

I want to hear
what she has to say.

What's going on, Pa?

[MELANIE]I'm Georgina's daughter.

She left me in my dad's care,

turned her back on me,

and went on with her life
as if I never existed.

Then, when she found out that
I was the child she abandoned,

she did everything
she possibly could

to make sure I get fired
from your company.

I need a background check done.

Georgina De Silva.

I need all the information
you can get about her

before the wedding.

Now I understand why you wanted
to get rid of me.

You did the same thing
to me back then.

I'm that daughter
you turned your back on.

[EMOTIONAL MUSIC PLAYING]

I'm that daughter
you refuse to recognize!

You have such a beautiful ring.

Where'd you buy this?

[DULCE] Oh, I didn't buy this.

This belonged to my son.

His name's Avel.

He is Melanie's father.

You left me in Papa's care.

But what I don't understand
is why!

Did Papa do something
against you?

I'd understand it
if you didn't love him.

But why'd you have
to get rid of me too?!

Why'd you have
to abandon me too?!

I have to find a way
to get rid of her

again.

And do you know
what the worst part is?!

It's that when you found out
who I was,

you did everything in your power
to destroy me!

Why?!

Do you not feel even
an ounce of regret?!

Do you not have any conscience?!

What kind of person are you?!

Are you really that heartless?!

[EMOTIONAL MUSIC CONTINUES]

Oh, I know.

You were afraid

that if they found out what kind
of person you truly are,

you'd lose everything
you have now!

Melanie! Stop!

Please!

Enough with your lies!

- Enough!
- [MICHAEL] No, Georgina!

Enough with your lies!

Enough.

Melanie is telling the truth.

I hired a private investigator

to do a background check
on her.

When I got nothing, I thought
Melanie was telling a lie

again.

Then, I...

...received this document
just now.

No, that's not true. [SOBS]

- Georgina gave birth...
- [GEORGINA SOBS]

...at New Life Medical Clinic

- on April 12, 1991...
- [GEORGINA BREATHING HEAVILY]

...to a baby girl.

-Is that your birthday, Melanie?
- [HEAVY BREATHING CONTINUES]

Stop! Stop.

No! That's not true.
That's not...

Uncle Michael, no!
That's not true.

Please do not believe her.

Should we ask you
to undergo a DNA maternity test?

Is that what you want?!

[HEAVY BREATHING CONTINUES]

[GEORGINA]
Why are you doing this?

- [MICHAEL] Georgina, come on.
- What are you doing?!

[MICHAEL] The least you can do
is save whatever is left

of your dignity.

[HEAVY BREATHING CONTINUES]

Admit the truth, Georgina.

- Come on!
- [HEAVY BREATHING CONTINUES]

I don't want to lose
everything I worked hard for.

Wait. Wait.
Wait, wait, wait.

My dreams are
more important to me.

Wait. [SOBS]

- Wait. [BREATHES HEAVILY]- Please.

[GEORGINA] Wait.

- Wait!
- What?!

Wait, Steve! Wait.
[PANICKED BREATHING]

Wait. Steve, it's not true.

- What's happening?
- Steve.

- Please. Please! Steve!
- What?!

- Daddy!
- Please don't leave me!

Please don't leave, Steve! No!

[SOBBING]

[GEORGINA]
Please! Steve! [CRYING]

Please... No! Steve!

- Steve!
- [SORROWFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

- Please don't leave me!
- Steve!

[GEORGINA]
Please don't leave, Steve.

[CHELSEA] Daddy!

Chelsea!

[MUSIC ENDS]

[DULCE] But she withdrew
the case against you!

No, Grandma!
She only did that

because Chris made a sacrifice
to protect me!

He knew Georgina would do
everything to send me to jail!

So he asked her
to withdraw the case

in exchange for him
ending things with me!

- [EMOTIONAL MUSIC PLAYING]
- [MELANIE SOBBING]

How could she just
keep getting rid of me?!

- [SOBBING]
- [EMOTIONAL MUSIC CONTINUES]

[MICHAEL INHALES DEEPLY,
SIGHS DEEPLY]

[MICHAEL] That's enough.

[EMOTIONAL MUSIC CONTINUES]

How could you have
let that happen, Pa?

[MICHAEL SIGHS DEEPLY]

[MICHAEL SIGHS SHARPLY]

I wanted to tell you
that I spoke to Melanie.

I didn't want
to ruin your wedding.

I just wanted to make sure.

And I got the information
just in time!

[CRYING] I was humiliated
in front of everyone.

You weren't humiliated.

Georgina's the one
who was humiliated

because she was the one
who lied.

[SOBBING]

- Your only mistake...
- [SOBBING CONTINUES]

...was that you loved her.

And there's no shame in that.

[SOBBING CONTINUES]

I will always be here for you.

You and Chris...

There's nothing more important
in this world to me

than the both of you.

[SOBBING CONTINUES]

I love you both.

anything else about you.

You lied to me!

Please listen to me!
Just listen to me. [SOBS]

Please. [SOBS]

Please!

[BOTH SOBBING]

Please...

- I'm so sorry.
- [SOBS]

- What? You're sorry?!
- [SOBBING CONTINUES]

- Huh?!
- Listen to me.

I'm so sorry.
I'm so sorry, Steve.

You liar!

[BOTH SOBBING]

[GEORGINA] Listen...

Do you know who you really love?

- Do you?!
- No!

- You only love yourself!
- No!

- Just yourself!
- No! I love you!

I love you, Steve.
I love you!

Please give me a chance.
Don't leave me.

[STEVE CRYING]You lied to me!

[GEORGINA] No, please! [SOBS]

- Please. Please...
- No. Get off me.

Please give me a cha... [SOBS]

Please give me a chance. [SOBS]

Please... Please just give me...

[SORROWFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

[STEVE CRYING]

[BOTH CRYING]

- [STEVE] You lied to me!
- [GEORGINA] I'm sorry.

[SIGHS SHARPLY]

I...

did not listen to you.

[SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]

Turns out, Melanie was
the right choice.

I was wrong.

I made a mistake.

That's right.

You made a huge mistake.

Because you were so focused
on making me do

the same thing you did to my mom
when you didn't choose her.

I was...

...married to Steve's mom.

I chose to do what was right.

"What was right"?

So you're saying
that my mom was a mistake?

That I...

I was a mistake?!

Well...

If you look at it that way,

then given the chance,

I would make that mistake
over and over...

and over again.

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

[MICHAEL EXHALES SHARPLY]

Even if I made a mistake,

I wouldn't change a thing
if given a chance.

I loved your mom.

You are our son.

You are my son.

That's why I love you.

[EMOTIONAL MUSIC PLAYING]

[SOBS]

[SOBBING CONTINUES]

[SNIFFLING]

[SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]

You better not be here
when I get back.

[MOROSE MUSIC PLAYING]

[SIGHS DEEPLY]

[SIGHS DEEPLY]

Who would've thought
I'd be back here?

Are you okay?
I can sleep over if you want.

I'm okay.

Well, I wish I can say the same.
I just got fired.

- [SOBBING]
- [MELANCHOLIC MUSIC PLAYING]

[SOBBING CONTINUES]

Stop.

[GLASS CLINKING]

[DOOR OPENS, CREAKS]

[DOOR CLOSES]

[GLASS CLINKING]

[CHRIS] You know,
you may have lost Georgina.

But you still have plenty
of people left in your life.

You have a wonderful daughter,

a father who adores you,

and...

a brother who loves you.

Do you still remember...

...back when we were
in high school?

- [EMOTIONAL MUSIC PLAYING]
- You'd always bully me.

But, when some other kid
would try to bully me,

you'd fight them.

[LEO SOBS]

I would?

Yeah.

You'd even tell them

that you were the only one
allowed to bully me.

But...

I knew that
you were only saying that

not because you wanted to
show me or everyone at school

who's the boss;

but because deep inside,

you actually really cared
for me.

[EMOTIONAL MUSIC CONTINUES]

[STEVE SOBBING]

[STEVE SIGHS, SNIFFLES]

[STEVE EXHALES DEEPLY]

Steve?

I still believe that
until now.

That's why I never lost hope
that someday...

eventually...

we'd be able to mend
our relationship.

[TAPS]

[SNIFFLES]

[SIGHS DEEPLY]

[EMOTIONAL MUSIC CONTINUES]

[MELANIE] Chris.

Hi.

I heard you talking to Stella
outside the church that day.

Thank you.

Thank you for making
that sacrifice.

Papa wants you back.

In SFX.

Uh... And...

I do too.

I want you back.

In SFX?

I want you back in my life.

[SOFT MUSIC PLAYING]

Melanie...

I love you so much.

[SOFT MUSIC CONTINUES]

[MICHAEL] Okay, guys...
[EXHALES SHARPLY]

This is the new era
of TNT and SFX.

- [CLAPPING, CHEERING]
- Yes!

[MICHAEL] As you very well know,

the company went through
a rough stretch.

[MYRZA] That's understating it.

The important thing is,
we're still here!

- Yes!
- And people still have faith

in us.

- Yes.
- Yes, the foundation of our...

You sure you can sketch
an entire collection

in one minute?

[PHEM] So let's just move on
and rebuild.

And no more drama, please!

- No drama!
- No more drama!

[MYRZA]
But Filipinos love drama!

I cannot promise you
smooth sailing, guys.

But I can promise you one thing:
we have the best people...

Just admit it!
You're an idiot!

You're a stupid moron!

- ...that we will ever face.
- [APPLAUSE]

So, if you'll look around,

- you'll see new faces...
- [SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

that you will be working
with hand-in-hand

in making this season
the best season yet.

Steve, kindly introduce
the new creative leaders of TNT.

Um, but before
I do that, please...

Grab yourselves a drink first

to formally welcome
our new members.

Come on, guys.

- [GLASSES CLINKING]
- [FOOTSTEPS]

Okay. Everyone has a drink?

So, yeah,
good evening, everyone!

Ethan Cinco will be joining TNT.

He'll be replacing Georgina
as TNT's new Creative Director.

Ethan used to be

- one of TNT's top designers,- This won't work.

and he's back from his studies
in New York.

So welcome back, Ethan.

[ETHAN] Happy to be back!

- Yeah!
- [CHEERING]

[STEVE] So he'll be partnering
with TNT's new Head Designer.

Fresh from Milan Institute
of Fashion, Frances Juno.

- Welcome. Welcome.
- [PHEM] Congrats!

- [BARBIE] Welcome!
- It's an honor.

[STEVE] And, of course,
for SFX,

I'm going to give the floor
to my brother, Chris.

Thank you, bro.

Well, for SFX...

We are replacing Stella Andrada
as Creative Director.

And, to take her position,
please welcome back

the one and only
Ms. Melanie Dela Cruz.

- Whoo!
- Woo-hoo!

- [BARBIE] Go, Melanie!
- [CHRIS TAN] Welcome back!

Welcome back!

[CHINA] Welcome back, Melanie.

- [CHRIS] Cheers to a new team!
- Cheers.

- Cheers!
- Cheers!

[MICHAEL] Cheers.

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC CONTINUES]

That's my Grandma Dulce,
and that's my dad.

[GEORGINA] How about your mom?

[MELANIE] To be honest,
I never really met her.

Daddy also never told me
anything about her.

Well, I guess
that's understandable.

I mean, we wouldn't want
to force people to accept us

if they want nothing to do
with us, anyway, right?

- I'm sorry.
- [MUSIC STOPS]

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

I'm sorry if I can't accept
your father's offer.

I just have a lot of
bad memories from that place,

and I want to forget them.

Besides, I don't want to follow
in Georgina's footsteps.

I want to forge my own path.

I want an achievement
I can call my own.

You know, after everything
that happened,

I know I'll be able to do that.

I'll be able to do anything.

[CHRIS] But what about your mom?

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

[GASPS]

I just...

[EXHALES SHARPLY]

[GEORGINA BREATHES HEAVILY]

I just want to say I'm sorry.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

I'm sorry, Melanie.

[CHRIS] Melanie.

- Melanie, stop!
- What?!

Why won't you give your mom
a chance?!

Will you please stay out
of this?!

This is between Georgina and I!

Are you really that calloused?
Are you?!

You already won, right?

You don't have to prove
anything to her anymore!

[CHRIS BREATHES LOUDLY]

When will you learn to forgive?

Do you think it's that easy?!

Just because you've patched
things up with your dad,

doesn't mean the same thing
will happen to everyone else!

I just want you
to be happy, Melanie...

I am happy!

Do I have to keep
telling you that?!

I'm happy that I've finally
put that woman in her place!

- [MELANIE BREATHING HEAVILY]
- [CHRIS EXHALES DEEPLY]

Now, if you can't understand me,

then that's your problem.

[FEET STOMPING]

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[MELANIE] Aah!

[GRUNTS LOUDLY]

[EXHALES SHARPLY]

Melanie?

Are you okay?

Talk to me, Melanie!

Leave me alone for now, Grandma!

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

I'm just starting
to get my revenge.

I'm not even half done.

[MUSIC ENDS]

Investing on Georgina
is very risky.

Would you like the same thing
to happen to you?

I just really need to go back
to fashion design.

People still have a negative
perception of you right now.

When are you reaching out
to your mom?

Not this again, Grandma.

[THEME MUSIC PLAYING]

Come on, Melanie.
It's been two years.

Your mother's already
buried in debt. She's ruined.

Why do you care about Georgina?

I don't care about Georgina.
I care about you.

That's your problem,
not mine.

[THEME MUSIC CONTINUES]
