  • I don´t Believe in God, I believe in science

  • We saw you from the village... People in the village: Hola Nacho!


Nacho: It sucks to be me right now!
Esqueleto: How come?
Nacho: How come you think? I used to really like Ramses. I wanted to become him! But it turns out, he's a real douche.

Sister Encarnación: Well, my favorite color is light tan. My favourite animal is puppies. I like serving the lord. Hiking, play volleyball...
Nacho: You gotta be kidding me. Everything you just said, is MY favourite thing to do, every day!

Nacho: I'm not listening to you! You only believe in Science. That's probably why we never win.
Esqueleto: We never win because you are fat!

Sister Encarnación: Where are we going, Ignacio?
Nacho: I saw a bum here, there were two bums actually. And I said to myself, "Let's talk to these guys about the Gospel."
Sister Encarnación: Well, where are they?

(Nacho looks around)

Nacho: I don't see them. They should be coming back.(Leans against wall and whips head fast)
Sister Encarnación: Where is your robe, Ignacio?
Nacho: It was... stinky. But these are my recreation clothes. (Tightens butt)
Sister Encarnación: They look expensive.
Nacho: Thank you... (Turns toward Sister Encarnación) I mean, yes! They may have the appearance of riches.(Kneels down) But beneath the clothes, we find a man. And beneath the man, we find, his...nucleus.
Sister Encarnación: Nucleus?
Nacho: Yes.

(Bums walk by) (Nacho leaps up and over to Sister Encarnación)

Nacho: (In low voice) I don't like the way those guys looked at you. (To bums) Hey! Can't you see this woman's a nun?! And if you have a problem with that, then you can just fight me.

(Makes his way to bums) (Grabs one bum's jacket and rips it) (Turns to face Nacho)

Nacho: Oh, you messed with the wrong guy this time!

(Takes shirt off and whips it at Sister Encarnación)

Nacho: Ever seen these moves? (jumps and hisses)

(Esqueleto and friends appear with pitchforks) (Nacho confused) (Bum punches Nacho)

Boy: Can't we ever have like a salad or something?
Nacho: Be grateful, Juan Pablo. Today is especially delicious.

Nacho: Ok. Orphans! Listen to Ignacio. I know it is fun to wrestle. A nice piledrive to the face... or a punch to the face... but you cannot do it. Because, it is in the Bible not to wrestle your neighbour.
Chancho: So you've never wrestled?
Nacho: Me? No. Come on. Don't be crazy. I know the wrestlers get all the fancy ladies, and the clothes, and the free creams and lotions. But my life is good! Really good! I get to wake up every morning, at 5AM, and make some soup! It's the best. I love it. I get to lay in a bed, all by myself, all of my life! That's fantastic! Go. Go away! Read some books!

Monk: What is this?
Nacho: Leftovers. Enjoy.
Monk: There is no flavor. There are no spices. Where are the chips?
Nacho': Somebody stole them.
Monk: Did you not tell them that they were the Lord's chips?
Nacho: I was trying to!
Monk: You are useless Ignacio!
Elderly Monk: Silence brothers! This is the worst lunch I ever had.
Monk: Your only job is to cook. Do you not realize I have had diarrhea since Easters?
Nacho: Ok... Maybe I am not meant for these duties. Cooking duty. Dead guy duty. Maybe it's time for me to get a better duty!
