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
At Pizzeria Campos, a photographer from Maggiezine is photographing various corners of the place while Maggie takes care of the interview. William and Caio are smiling and collaborative.“Mr. Campos...”“Call me Will.” William jokes.“OK... Will, how do you feel about this new venture?”“I feel fulfilled. My last job was not giving me motivation and I decided to take a chance on a new adventure.”Maggie nods and brings the tape recorder closer, “I heard you have a pizza maker from Italy, is that true?”William chuckles, “Tommaso's grandparents immigrated from Italy and came with tradition in their veins. I am very happy to have him as a helper.”“What about you, Caio? Do you intend to carry on with the business when your father retires?”“Certainly,” Caio responds politely, “I won't need to look for a job anymore.”The adults laugh, even the photographer.Maggie looks around, “I admit the pizzeria looks beautiful and well-built. Was it the company I'm thinking of?”William replies, st
Dora turns off the radio to have a better dialogue with her mischievous son.“Son, when are you going to stop being a pain in the ass?”“Mom, watch your language,” William responds ironically.“You know very well where I want to go!” Dora throws the broom to the ground, “When will you learn to be a tempered man like your father? Do you see him whining about anything? Do you see him complaining all the time about his enemies?”“My father has no enemies,” William speaks as if this were a demerit.“Exactly, and I want you to be like that. Nobody hates you, you are the one who always starts the war.”William rolls his eyes, “As usual, I'm to blame for everything that happens in this goddamn life!”“And off we go, you're mumbling and whimpering like a little girl!” Dora accuses him.William stands up, “Mother, I just came to inform you that I will be famous again, but as it turns out, you are not willing to celebrate with the son of your womb!”Dora loses her temper, “You want to be famous
Ernesto enters Josias's office. The owner of Rocha Constructions notices the secretary's worried face.“Ernie, did something happen to my son?”“No, but something happened to my family.” Ernesto sits in the visitors' seat, “Boss, it’s with immense regret that I announce my departure.”Josias is extremely shocked. What?“Ernesto, this is not the time for jokes. I'm a very busy man—”“I would never play with something like that, Josias Rocha.” Ernesto retorts with some sourness, “Lilian’s mother is in poor health and my wife is extremely worried.”“Lilian can go alone.” Josias tries to resolve the situation.But Ernesto shakes his head, “No, boss. How is my wife going to help with just the two of them? My father-in-law has passed away. Her younger brother is living in São Paulo. He could help, but until he arrives... but my wife is closer. My mother-in-law lives in Vila Velha.”“Well, not so far away...” Josias is dissatisfied, “But Ernesto, are you saying goodbye at once? Is it not a t
Thursday. At the Rocha mansion, the Paes family is packing.Katherine is shocked to discover that she will lose Ernesto and Lilian. Sarah is also disappointed.“Mommy, when are we coming back here?” Sarah asks tearfully.“When your grandmother is well, my daughter.” Lilian sagely responds, “Let's pack your bags.”Katherine accosts her in the hallway, “Lilian, we are so sorry about your mother. You don't want me to visit or help you financially?”Lilian already knows the story told by Ernesto, “It's not necessary, missus, thank you very much. Your fiancé is already taking care of everything.”Katherine sighs, “My fiancé... you won't be at my wedding.”“Unfortunately, but that's life.” Lilian nods hopelessly. What should you do when someone who could endanger Josias's life appears out of nowhere?Katherine walks away with Sarah. Ernesto approaches Lilian.“So, is she convinced yet?”“I think so, darling. Really, I am very sorry to have to leave as if we were guilty of something!” Lillia
