The cobra, with its intimidating

appearance and deadly bite,

is famous for its defense mechanism

when faced with danger.

If attacked,

it adopts an upright posture,

repelling the attacker.

But this defense mechanism

is not exclusive to this reptile.

It is also used by human beings

as protection against attack.

That is why

this movement is called

"doing the cobra".

Calculations by experts

on the subject

show that every two minutes

someone somewhere does the cobra.

This means that as of now

the next one will occur

in 1 minute 56 seconds.

I know who she is.

It doesn't matter.

- She's dating Perianes' brother.

- Pitu?

But we're just talking.

They've been dating for years.

Let's go home.

No, wait.

- Is that rum and cola?

- Yeah.

What are you doing?

Go away.

Hey, man!


Didn't you leave?

- I was over there.

- I thought...

Were you cut up about...?

No, no, don't worry.

Did she end it, or did you?

We'd been dating for five years

and I needed a bit of...

But I've got nothing against

long relationships.

I've been with someone for ages too.

Pitu, maybe you know him.


No, I don't think I do.

We split up last month.

You did?

I'm really sorry.

How are you coping?

- I'm doing really great.

- Yeah?

I needed time with my girlfriends,

to go partying,

to be with whoever I want,

and with no complications.

I'm just the same.

I don't want any complications.

I'm really simple.

My one good point is

I never complicate anyone's life.

Your drink.


Don't you drink?

No, it disagrees with me.

There are different types

of cobra,

some more aggressive than others.

- This one's bound to be open.

- I think I'll head home.

I'm glad the other place closed.

They kept playing "Hroes del

Silencio". I hate Enrique Bunbury.

- You know I do, Rubn.

- Yeah, yeah.

You can't be called Enrique

and have the surname Bunbury.

Enrique or Bunbury,

but not both.

He's from fucking Saragossa!

He turns the girls on.

What girls?

Have you seen those girls?

And, as well,

that whole loutish routine.

Forty years old

and acting like a lout,

with those fucking rats tails

hanging over his face.

- This place is closed.

- He's a pain.

He thinks he's Bob Dylan

or somebody like that.

No, it has to be open.

There's a light on.

That's the cigarette machine.

- I mean the red light.

- Yeah, it says Lucky Strike.

Maybe there's a bell.

A bell at "Tito's"? Why?

It's closed.

It looks empty, because of

the fines, but inside it's jumping.

People don't go out on weekdays.

With all the noise

they can't hear us.

I'm going home.

I've got class tomorrow.

What do you mean, going home?

One last drink,

it's not even midnight.

Where can we go on a Wednesday?

Come on,

Wednesday is the new Friday.

I thought the new Friday

was Thursday.

No, no way, man.

Everyone goes out on a Thursday.

In fact, Thursday

is the new Saturday.

So what's Saturday?

If Wednesday's the new Friday,

and Thursday's the new Saturday,

what's Saturday?

Don't make silly excuses.

If you want to go home, go ahead.

Wait, no, no.

Have you talked

to Ana?

She rang me.

So we aren't...

You mean, going out mid-week

and that?

"And that"?

You left her so you could

go out more, and now you say that?

No, you kept on at me to leave Ana.

I was happy with her.

You weren't so happy with Ana.

We've been doing this for two

months and haven't scored once.

And those German tourists?

They were 50 years old.

Yeah, but...

No, they weren't well preserved

and you know that.

Maybe we shouldn't have left

Ana and Elisa.
