At LCN studios, Melissa and Isabel are shocked when they discover that someone was recording Flávia. The lady gets up from the couch and goes over to the cameraman.“What kind of clowning is this, young man?”The cameraman is startled, “Excuse me, weren't you ladies auditioning for new characters? I thought it was part of the selection process!”Isabel calms down and laughs, “It's not that. Flavia is my daughter-in-law and she just sat on the couch. We were talking that had nothing to do with 'Love Just Happens'."“In this case, ‘Sweet Love’.” The cameraman kindly corrects her.“Diego, don't worry, Flavia won't be upset. It was a misunderstanding.” Melissa solves the problem.Flávia is annoyed, “If my husband finds out that I'm kissing soap opera heartthrobs, he'll ask for a divorce!”Diego ventures, “But you never thought of being an actress?”“Shall we talk somewhere else, Melissa?” Flavia asks angrily.Melissa looks at her watch and again remembers that it was a gift from Josias, “
Thursday. Flávia serves breakfast and finds Uélton checking Everaldo's phone in the phone book.“Looking for whose phone, my love?”“Everaldo’s number, but it looks like he hasn't been able to get this important technology yet.” Uélton bitterly closes the phone book.“I look for you, father.” Reuben offers himself.Uélton pats his son's head, “You worry about eating your cereal to go to school.”Flávia joins them and helps herself to coffee with milk.“Honey, yesterday something very funny happened. A cameraman thought I was in a selection process for characters in Melissa's soap opera and recorded me while I was talking to your mother and my cousin.”“Are you going to be an actress, Mom?” Reuben's eyes are twinkling.Uélton chuckles, “No, son, your mother will only kiss the heartthrob here.”Flavia is slightly uncomfortable to see her suspicion come to fruition, “Would it be that bad?”Uélton shrugs, “Didn't you say that Veronica Montanha was there looking for vacancies? Let them hir
Uélton goes around the Main Square in search of Everaldo. As if by divine providence, Uélton finds him selling hot dogs in a strategic corner of the square.“EVERALDO!” Uélton pays the biggest embarrassment by literally jumping on top of the vendor, "God heard my prayers, and that's why you're here!”Everaldo almost has a heart attack, “Stop it, comrade! Don't embarrass my customers.” He addresses a girl paying for the hot dog, “Mayonnaise or mustard?”The lady customer was afraid of Uélton, “No, it's ok for me, thank you very much!”The customer runs out instead of eating the hot dog on one of the park benches.“I hope the girl wasn't scared,” Uélton speaks without the notion of what he did.“What you want? Is Josias in trouble?”Uélton is more and more amazed, “See? How do you know that I'm Josias Rocha's best friend? You can only be an angel coming from Heaven to help mere mortals!”Everaldo neither confirms nor denies the hypothesis, “I follow Josias’s life at Maggiezine.”“OK, I
Isabel and Harold are at home watching the traditional fishing show.Harold comments with a slight smile, “I miss our grandson in my lap watching these shrimp being caught.”Isabel pats her husband's belly, “He is now studying, to be a good citizen. And I don't think he would fit in your lap, not anymore.”“How time passes. He will be nine years old. Do you remember that Flávia almost died in childbirth?”Isabel worries a little, “I remember. So I hope they don't risk having more children, this could have been a warning for Flávia not to get pregnant again.”The landline rings and Isabel gets up to answer it, “Hello?”On the other side is Daniel, “Isabel, this is Daniel Oliveira. Is the hubby around for me to call you by your last name?”Isabel giggles, “He's not jealous, I will always love him.”“Great, because you're already intimate with everyone here. Now is the time for us to be intimate with your daughter-in-law.”“Flavia?”“Isabel, we saw the recording of your daughter-in-law..
Isabel is trying to call Flávia, but she can't. She doesn't know that Flávia is defending Uélton at Rocha Constructions.“No, no one answers, honey.” Isabel hangs up, “I don't think even Reuben made it home from school.”“Is the boy alone at home yet?” Harold asks, surprised.“Uélton said that our grandson is already a man.” Isabel smiles slightly, “As long as Reuben doesn't open the door to strangers, I'm fine.”“Unfortunately he was isolated. Caio lives here. Alan, Caroline, Pedro, and Rosemary live Downtown, and Junior is in Victoria.”Isabel sits on the other sofa, “This could be resolved if they left the favela and lived here in the neighborhood.”Harold ponders for a few seconds, “Well... he's in good financial shape.”“And that house is many years old,” Isabel remembers fondly.“Maybe that's why Uélton insists on staying there. But... it's like you said: before, we lived in Happiness Slum because we couldn't afford to live in a better neighborhood. Now we have it, and Uélton al
Maggie is now bottle-feeding Henrique. At the same time, she teaches Veronica how to repeat the doing when Maggie is at the company. Veronica watches closely.“Here, Veronica, just sit on the armchair and hold it like this... prepare the porridge well and Henrique will drink it all, won't you, my baby?”Henrique just sucks, not caring about anything else.Veronica smiles, “I hope to enjoy the same experience when I have my baby.”“Of course, God hear you. They say you want to transform the representation of commercials into real life, is that true?”Veronica sits on the other couch, “I'd be lying to you if I said no... Jack Motta is the ideal role model every woman wants to get pregnant.”“Yes, he has good genetics, your children will be beautiful.” Maggie nods, “In the meantime, how are the job prospects?”Veronica withers her smile, “I'm waiting for a call from Melissa, your future sister-in-law.”“Looks like they've already found another model to replace you. How fast they are.” Ma
At Marçal Publishing, Maggie and Veronica are in front of Bernardo to discuss the magazine's article.“Veronica, you are part of the family.” Bernardo nods with a smile, “I think it's a good idea for you to appear in the magazine, so you explain to your fans why you're not acting with Jack Motta in the Rocha Constructions commercials anymore.”Veronica is a little apprehensive, “Will the fans like the answer?”“It wasn't a gross event, was it?” Bernardo raises an eyebrow.“Well...” Veronica scratches her head like she has lice, “I misinterpreted a talk from the director. He wanted me to study acting like Jack and I thought he was criticizing me.”Bernardo drums his fingers on the desk, “Oh my dear... what a pity. But you intend to take acting classes, do you?”Veronica looks at Maggie and her cousin slowly nods, encouraging her.“That will be on my targets for 1995.”“1995 is speeding by, Veronica.” Bernardo jokes, “If we stall, we will already be in December without meeting our goals
At Café Montanha, still undergoing renovations, Francisco is outraged to hear Bernardo's theory echoing from the mouth of one of his nephews.“Daryl, how could you have the nerve to think such a thing?” He denies the thesis, “Are you thinking your mother is a slut?”“I didn't think of anything else.” Daryl scrutinizes Francisco, “Even because I don't know anything about it. Did something happen between you two?”“Nothing happened!” Francisco gets up and breathes with difficulty, “Your mother remained faithful to your father, and I to your aunt. There is no swap of couples in our youth, what a horror!”Daryl tries but can't help giggling, “Sorry Uncle, but imagining the scene...”Rodrigo revolts, “Don't imagine it, cousin, respect your mother.”“I can’t believe Bernardo decided to go along with that insinuation!” Francisco sits down again.Daryl decides to reveal to them, “It wasn't Bernie. It was Maggie who showed up yesterday to inform me and Kelvin that you had a conversation with h
