Jane and Octavio are talking and getting to know each other better at Café Montanha. Rodrigo serves them two cups of espresso and turkey sandwiches.“Most of my projects were approved by Josias, Jane.” Octavio proudly describes his day at work, “Of course, I owe it to my team who work hard.”“Oh, is there a team of architects?” Jane is interested in the subject.“Yes, I can't handle designing all the orders myself.” Octavio chooses a sandwich with a napkin, “When I was employed in 1983, I was alone, and I could keep up with demand. But since the company grew and became famous...”Jane widens her eyes, “Wow, Octavio! What's that? Since 1983?”Octavio chuckles, “I guess I forgot to tell you that I've known Josias since high school.”“So, you are...”“I’m thirty-five. Too old for you?” Octavio smiles playfully.“I'm twenty-eight, but I won't give up on you.” Jane grabs Octavio's arm to stop him from leaving.As the couple laughs and continues to talk, Jack and Veronica enter the room.“H
Octavio takes Jane to get closer to his father. Ronaldo welcomes her with pleasure at his house.“Come in, my daughter, come in! This old man here was watching Lisandro’s Show, but I can see you.”“Isn't that an interesting interview?” Jane is embarrassed.“You are more interesting.” Ronaldo winks at Octavio, “One day you will be the one interviewed as the wife of the Chief Architects of Rocha Constructions.”“Dad, don't scare her.” Octavio jokes.“Who is trying to scare this beautiful lady?” Ronaldo indicates the sofa, “If you change the glasses for contact lenses, you would be more beautiful, Jane.”“I have contact lenses, but I don't wear them much.” Jane apologizes.“OK, don't mind that old man's opinions.” Ronaldo sits in the armchair, then complains to himself, “Oh, how rude! I sat down without asking if you wanted anything.”“No need, Mr. Motta!” Jane despairs, afraid to make Ronaldo get up after the trouble he had to sit down.Octavio gets up, “I'll go get coffee and cookies.”
Jack returns home. Ronaldo is reading a book in the armchair but stops reading when he sees his son.“Hello, son! How was the recording at the LCN studios?”“They are fine, father. Veronica is getting a lot of attention with her character.”Ronaldo looks at the clock on the wall, “It's almost time to start ‘Sweet Love’. I am also enjoying your approval, son.”“Thanks, Dad.” Jack leaves his wallet on the shelf.“Hey, Octavio brought Jane and we ate Shirley's cookies. But Octavio said she hasn't been showing up at the entrance to the Vargas Building for him to buy more.”Jack sits down on the couch to take off his sneakers, “Dad, Shirley Mountain is gone. After years of fighting with her daughter, she decided to move away and live in the countryside with her family.”Ronaldo is stunned, “What crazy decision is this?”“Calm down, father. Everyone has to decide what to do with their lives.”“But that doesn’t resolve the conflict. Did she say goodbye to her daughter at least?”“Only now di
The next day, Pizzeria Campos was open with a huge sign at the entrance that said: OPENING!Inside, William has managed to get another stereo to liven up the diners as they enjoy their delicious pizzas.Pizza maker Tommaso Marino was hired to prepare the pizzas with the Italian care they require. Other helpers and attendants are preparing the place for the first day of work.To the sound of “Wannabe” by the Spice Girls, Dora and Simeon filled balloons. Melissa enters the place with Kelvin, Alan, and Caroline.William tries to stop them, “Oh no! These people are not welcome in my establishment!”Simeon loses his breath and lets a balloon deflate, making a noise like he's farting. Alan and Caroline laugh.But Kelvin and Melissa are not amused.“Will, I can't believe you're going to pull this off!” Melissa complains.“Little sister, you know damn well I let you in and have pizza on the house.” William whinnies, “But this is Pizzeria CAMPOS, not Mountain.”Kelvin puts his hand on his glab
In Teodoro's building, Beto and Teresa are taking care of the lobby, putting away certain things, and arranging the counter to go out. The radio is playing “Good Riddance” by Green Day. Vera enters at this moment, dressed to go to the pizzeria.“Hello, guys!”Beto is surprised, “Vera, what are you doing here? I thought you were going to the pizzeria.”“And I'm going, but I wanted to see you first.” She notices their outfit, “And as seen, you are also heading there.”“Yes, we were invited.” Teresa responds, “Isn't it dangerous for you to come here?”“I took a taxi,” Vera responds, knowing what Teresa is talking about.“But now you will come with us in my car.” Beto decides.Rosemary and Pedro appear, “We're ready, Daddy.”“Are we all ready to get free pizza?” Beto animates the troupe.“WE’RE READY!” The children are elated.Teresa narrows her eyes, “Hey, is the pizza on the house?”Beto keeps his arms raised upwards. He did not know this, he spoke by guessing. Now he was questioned...
At Crystal Blue, Daryl is in the position of maître d' in Kelvin's place so that he could attend the inauguration of Pizzeria Campos. Diane approaches him.“Honey, how are we doing with reservations?”“We are doing very well.” Daryl comments looking at the booking book, “The customers who called are showing up. Activity is reasonable for the night.”“Fortunately.” Diane giggles, “For a moment, I thought we were being shortchanged by the pizzeria.”Daryl joins in the laughs, “Their pizzeria is in Green Park while we're Downtown.”Suddenly, Renan and Tobias enter the restaurant. Daryl and Diane immediately stop laughing.“Good evening, Mr. Mountain.” Tobias greets him, “I booked a table for two.”Renan smiles mockingly at Daryl. He knows that if he had called, Daryl would have refused to reserve a table. But since it was the mayor's secretary who called...“Table eleven. Frederick, please...”Frederick leads the gentlemen reverently, but he couldn't hide his disgust toward Renan.Diane
At Crystal Blue, Renan finished dinner with Tobias. The mayor said goodbye and retired to foot the bill. Renan, on the other hand, decided to go to the bar to drink a cocktail.He smiles amiably at Diane, “A female bartender. Cool.”“What does that mean?” Diane raises her eyebrows, “You think I don't know how to make drinks?”“No, I imagine you were properly trained by the owner of this restaurant.”“Did you mean: by her husband?” Diane blinks.Renan has a bump. He hadn't expected the beautiful bartender to be married.“What will you want?”“A Manhattan.” Renan sits on the stool.“You have chosen just the drink that is missing an ingredient today,” Diane speaks in a neutral tone.But Renan thinks she's flirting with him and smiles again, “What's missing, vodka?”Diane remains serious, “Manhattan doesn't carry vodka. It contains whiskey and red vermouth. The cherry is missing to garnish.”Renan laughs out loud, attracting Daryl's attention, “Serve me anyway.”Diane prepared the drink s
The next day, Josias and Katherine still haven't recovered from the absurdity they faced at William's pizzeria. They have breakfast served by Lilian.“What then, bosses? How was the opening of Pizzeria Campos?”“The pizza is delicious, but the service was horrible!” Katherine complains, “I didn't think Will's temper would get any worse. Are you sure he was better, Josias?”Josias nods, “It was from 1983 when I helped him with Caio.”“And the ungrateful one forgets that to annoy and insult you every time you appear!”“Take it easy, dear. Don't let William ruin your day.”Katherine soothes, “If your day isn't spoiled, mine won't be either.”Lilian smiles and leaves the platter of ricotta. As she goes to get more options, the phone rings.She goes into the hall to answer the extension that is there, but Ernesto, with his back to her, answered first.“Hello?”On the other side, it's Tiago at his house, “Hello, Ernesto! Glad it was you who answered. We need to talk alone in my office. Plea
