To our grandparents...

Montevideo. Saturday, 7:14 AM.

Yo, Leche.

F***ing dogs!

It comes off with water, Leche.

The sh*t comes off.

The curse stays.

- It's the other way round.

- Really?

It's good luck.

Hey, I'm a genius,

I stepped on dogshit. When

I was a kid they taught me...

that it's good luck.

- Who told you that?

- My Uncle Alfonso.

The one that choked...

on an Easter egg?

Hard-boiled egg.

A hard-boiled egg.

With all due respect, Seba,

would you believe

a guy like that?

F*** you, Leche.

Stepping on dogshit is plain

bad luck. It's a curse.

At least 24 hours

of bad luck.

Shut up, dumb ass.

- What, you don't believe me?

- No.



I say it comes heads, ok?

- Number.

- Ok.

Leave it. It counts.

No, it doesn't.



You try now, Seba.

I say heads again.


You're in deep sh*t,

aren't you, Leche?

I'm f***ed.

Ok, see you.

I'm going to sleep.

Hey, wait,

I bet...

I bet this loser

a beer...

Stone, paper, scissors, c'mon.

No way.

Go get one, then.

It's your turn.

My turn?


Anything else?



Where are you going, Javi?

- To get another one.

- Get me a cookie.

- Am I your servant?

- Uh?

Am I your servant?

C'mon, be a nice guy.


Money, what else?

Hey, c'mon,

I'm broke.

Get a job, loser.

What's so funny?

Do you have a job?

I'm a student.

So am I.

Do I scratch my balls all day?

I pass Italian and I'm

done with high school.

It's next Tuesday, right?

- It's on Tuesday?

- Monday.

And I stepped on dogshit.

Yeah, you should be

studying instead, lazy ass.

I mean the exam is on Monday

and I'm cursed, dumb ass.

So the other five times you failed

the exam was dogshit too?

It's like a joke.

Right when I was about

to face Beatriy...

F***ing dogs.


I had a dream about dogs.

Good, Javi...

Ass kisser.

I dreamed about a dog

in a supermarket.

A dog in a supermarket?

Freud would say

you're a fag.

Yeah, really.

Why don't you dream

about tits and asses?

How long since you

watched a porn video?

I don't know.

What's that?

Dog sh*t?

+Don't "shhh" me!

- Cut it.

No, no.

C'mon. Let's go.

Yeah! Two # 329.

- Uh?

- Two #329 buses.

So what?

They crossed one

another in front of us!

We have to make a wish.

That's bullshit.

It worked yesterday

with two 522s.

Really? What did you wish for?

Stepping on dogshit?

Just make a wish.

You have nothing to lose.

What I have to do?

Do I have to blow a match?

Of course.

Thanks, dude.

- You're a smart cookie.

- Sure I am.

I mean it, Javi.

If you don't start believing in this,

you can say "good bye" to sex

life, and "hello" to wanking.

Cut the crap.

Javi, Maria gave

you a hamster.

A hamster.

Do you know what that means

in girlfriends' language?

It means, "I'm confused, etc..."

You're a dead man.

Did she really give

you a hamster?

Did you know hamsters

are very intelligent?

That's bullshit.

Who said that?


- Yes, my Uncle Alfonso.

- Alfonso.

- So what?

- Uh?

What's up?

What did you wish for, Seba?

Can't tell you.

It won't happen if I do.

So now you

believe that bullshit?

That's all myth.

I wished for these two

bottles to stand still.

And you?

That everything goes smoothly.

With Beatriy or the exam?


I used Javi's wish.

Oh! That'll be a big help.

Look! They're standing still.

I'll ask her out after class...

an "end of course"

kind of outing.

Once at the bar,

I go "Beatriy,

what do you say if now...

...that you're not

my tutor anymore...

- Shut up, dumb ass.

- Uh?

You were in kindergarten and she

already had hair down there, schmuck.

Just because your girlfriend...

is about to dump you,

doesn't mean...

I can't get some.

- You're sick.

- Uh?


You are a waste of time.

What are you doing, idiot?

Leave him alone.

She gave him a hamster.

Time to rock!

What's up, dudes?

All neat?

All neat, Hernan?

"All neat" you said?

You should ask me

permission to say "all neat."

I brought the "all neat"

from Brazil 4 years ago.

I was the one who

started that trend.

But I'll let you use it, Seba.

Where do you come from?

Never saw you again

after the bar.

From nowhere.

We went to "La cueva de Vicente"

and then came back here.

Who was playing?

"Venganya Tolengo" and...

- "Motivos"

- "Motivos Navidenos"

I had to go

to Laura's.

Hadn't she

dumped you?

Yeah. But she

had my bike...

I had to fix it.

The chain was short.

But she didn't

really dump me.

We are cool.

We had to split...

because of

a karma problem.

Sure, karma.

No, you don't get

the karma stuff.

Do you want me to explain it?

It's really important.

No, I have to work.

I'm sleepy.

Sleepy? I know a yoga

technique to stay awake.

It's really cool.

Once, at Cape Polonio,

it kept me awake

for seven,

eight days without sleeping.

It was great.

On the seventh day

I started receiving,

these energy messages

from the moon.

Im so dumb. Ive to

have make a wish.

Now I will

get half of each wish:

Beatriz will tell me Im cute but

she'll go back to her boyfriend...

And l'll pass the written part,

but fail at the oral...

In fact...

So I tell Hector I don't

come to work...

because I registered for college...

And then I tell dad I can't

go to college because...

I got another job...

And to Maria...

They were standing right there,

straight up, they were not falling.

Stupid bottles.
