The most important thing is winning.

The only thing.

Being the best.

What you do is okay.

It's correct.

But... Michael Jordan,

Nadia Comaneci, Jesse Owens,

Johan Cruyff.

They didn't try to do something

that was "correct".

You have to go out there and enjoy yourselves,

see your rivals' blood freeze.

Like a midnight call.

That's why you need us.

Because you don't want

a caped guy.


You want Iron Man.

When was the last time

you had as much fun as last night?

By night we're good.

But during the daytime we're

much better.

We're creating one of the best

campaigns we've ever designed.

And it's for you.


They've lapped it up.

It's bought me some time.

Tonight we'll have sushi to celebrate.

We've got to go to my dad's.

I don't know what he's done this time.

And I haven't been able to pick up

the kid's present, can you do it?

But don't forget it.

My God, Dad.

You're so f***ing clumsy!

Come on, get lost.

- Ma'am, your dad's an ogre.

- Yeah.

Yes. I know, I'm sorry.

Dad, you just have

to tie it like this.

Does it hurt?

No, it's just a bruise.

You've brought him?

How are you, sir?

Happy as hell, you clown.


Give me that,

give it to me.

Leave that.

And that too.

I'm not leaving it.

You can't live in this chaos.

Leave my chaos alone.

What's happened here?

- What's the roof doing on the floor?

- It's falling down.

Get dressed,

you're coming with us.


Dad, you're coming with us.

Inma, don't put pressure on him.

What's this?

Raw fish.


This is what you teach your son?

It's been hundreds,

thousands of years

since man invented fire.

What are we? Creatures, animals?

Is this what your mom

and I taught you?

- It's good, Dad, try it.

- Come on!

And try that green thing.

It's called wasabi, it's really sweet.

- Really good.

- Ramn, enough.

And leave the phone,

we're at the table.

I'm working, Inma.

If you don't sweat,

it's not working.


Can I get my present now?





This is the first comic

with Iron Man in it.

And this is his first armor.

Take good care of it. It's valuable.

It's just an old comic book.

Here you go, honey.

Here's five euros and go buy a new one.

Is there bread?

In the kitchen.

I'll be in the study.

You can't be in the study

because my father's staying there.

Everything's turning out just great.

Manolo! Inma!

Why are you cutting the bread

on the tablet?

Cutting it, on the board.

All the useless things

you've missed, Pili.

And your Inmaculada

has got them all.


This isn't like the country.

Here we've got neighbors.

Maybe it's a little bit late for Noelia.

And while we're at it,

you could shave

and wash.

Now you're in my house.

My house,

my rules.

Tomorrow I'm going back to mine.

No, you'll stay here

until they fix the roof.

And maybe longer.

Have a good night.

Huge dick?

You're so dirty!

- Erase that.

- Hold on, I'll finish it.


- Come on, write.

- I'm writing.

I have this weird tingling sensation.

- You want to know why?

- Why?

Because you don't exercise.

You spend all day sitting.

It's as if I had pebbles

inside my sock.

- You could get help from my dad.

- You're crazy.

Hey, he's been a PE teacher

for 40 years.

And an ogre for 60.

You'd loose the muffin top.

I'm really busy.

I've got the Brazil convention.

- I though you liked my muffin top.

- I love it.

But I also like abs.

This couple has communication issues.

I thought you liked it.

I haven't exercised my whole life

because of you.


- Turn off the light.

- You turn it off.

You turn it off.

If you don't, you'll witness a crime.

- Really?

- Yes.

Don't touch there.

You know me.

Is this yours?

Is everything okay, Dad?

Child, you're already pregnant.

Why are you always sad,

are you dying?

I'll die whenever I feel like it.

I'm a real man.

What is being a real man?

Taking the right decisions

at the right time.

When I grow up I want to be

a real man, like Mom.

- You're so unlucky.

- Send me the quarterly accounts.

Yeah. Okay.

Hold on a second.

I'm off to work.

Dad will be taking you to school, okay?

Go ahead.


Don't hang up, hold on.

You could have made the bed.

I need you to do a couple of things

before work.

Do you mind?

Why don't you...

You're not going to work?

Work, work...


Where is...

Inma, the...


Okay, Ramn.

You can take the goggles off now.

So. That's it. Right, doctor?

And how's the tingling?

Do you still have it?

Well yes, a bit on the right leg

and not much more.

ut that's got to be stress related.

I don't get sick so easily.

I see. And can you do this easily?

Okay, Ramn.

I'll introduce a needle between the vertebrae.

Don't move.

Come with me, please.

The results from the MRI

and the lumbar puncture

give us reason to believe

it's a disease called multiple sclerosis.


You've had what's commonly called

a sclerotic relapse.

A relapse?

Our nerves,

both brain and spinal nerves are protected,

like electrical cables,

by a substance called myelin.

In sclerosis, our defense,

the immune system,

gets it wrong and attacks

and injures that protection.

So you can have a short-circuit.

A relapse.

From some you can recover pretty much.

And others can have side effects.

What kind of effects?

We have to take it step by step.

What kind of effects?
