In Daryl's office in Crystal Blue, he's enjoying Elton John's song “I Want Love” coming out of his computer speakers. He just got an email from Kelvin saying everything is fine in Victoria.
Diane walks in and finds her husband like, “I'm glad you're smiling. Will we have good service today?”
“All tables are booked.” Daryl extends the smile to his beloved wife, “So, are you pregnant?”
Diane heaves a long, hopeless sigh, “I'm thinking of checking myself again. Or I must say long prayers in the Cathedral.”
“Don't worry, darling, when we least expect it, you start to pass out and throw up.” Daryl jokes, “Kelvin sent me an email saying everything is fine.”
“Good, dear.” Diane sits down, “I had a visit from Elza. She apparently wanted to chat and fit in with the new neighbor, but I don't know how, the conversation turned to Kelvin, Melissa, and why they
At Rocha Constructions, Josias has fun with Cláudio's exasperation.“What is it, partner? Why are you nervous?”“Why do you always think that a strong and attractive man is fatally a creep? I don't need to ‘chase’ any ‘helpless’ maiden, they are the ones who kneel at my feet begging for attention, just as Kate acted one day, back in 1998.”Josias breaks his smile at the mention of his late wife, “Leave my wife out of this.”“You were the one who started mentioning her. I just want to defend myself from the eternal pervert accusation. They even hinted that I’d try something with your ten-year-old daughter, how disgusting!”“OK, Claudio, I can't answer for the others, but I admit that I also had a bad impression of you. But you're not going to get justice by making a fuss to the media, posing as wronged as if I don't care about the death of my son and my wife.&
The day of the birth of Jane and Octavio's baby arrived.It was precisely on the day that Jane rested the most, according to Dr. Silvana’s instructions.She was at the hospital talking to a revamped Dr. Antenor, “My comrade, you look five years younger! Where are the dark circles, the stooped posture, and the yellow teeth?”“Come on, Silvana, did you want to see me ugly forever?” Antenor laughs, and then leans in closer as if sharing a secret, “I paid off my credit card debt!”“The one that was going for more than R$1,000.00?”“Exactly!” Antenor vibrates, “Actually, I paid R$800.00 because the bank gave me a discount for paying in cash.”Silvana is surprised, “I thought you had paid in installments! Antenor, have you finally hit the lottery?”Antenor grimaces, “I stopped burning money on this sh*t. No, friend, don't we get our salary? I've
Alfred, Tiago, Carmen, and Lorraine are outside just listening to Jane scream to deliver her son into the world.Lorraine tenses, “Will I be in the same situation when Ivan wants his heir?”Carmen smiles, “You can opt for a cesarean, my friend.”Lorraine giggles, “I think option #1 is the best.”Suddenly, a baby cry is heard.“YEAH!” Everyone applauds, “It worked!”The door opens and Octavio comes out, wearing a mask, cap, and blue gown, “My baby boy was born, everyone!”“Congratulations!” Alfred hugs him tightly.Elza and Vernon appear in a bit of a hurry, “Oh, looks like we got there just in time, or we missed the best part, dear.”Lorraine turns to Vernon, “If hearing the terrifying screams was the best part, then you definitely missed it.”Elza is moved, “How is she, Octavio?”“V
In the lobby of the Teodoro building, Patrick is unhappy with the turn of events. He explains his feelings to Beto to the sound of “He Loves U Not”, by Dream.“Try explaining that to Rosemary.” Patrick complains, “Thierry Nogueira doesn't love Rosemary, he just wants to be first on the list.”Beto is indignant, “There will be no 'list' of guys, Pat! You are the first, the last, and the only one!”“I'm not sure about that anymore, Mr. Reis.” Patrick lowers his head, “Your daughter is clearly in love with the beggar who turns out to be the guy who wants to pervert her, but she doesn't come out lest she ruins the idealized image she's created.”“This is just a phase, she'll recognize later.” Beto tries to console him.Patrick shakes his head, “I don't know, Mr. Reis. If she doesn't forget this madness of defending a man she doesn't know, I’ll be forced to b
Elza and Vernon visit Gabriela's apartment. They are greeted by the song “Soul on Soul” by Rod Stewart.João Paulo is cooking while Gabriela is in the bedroom.“Son, what a good smell!” Elza praises him, “What is it?”“A lentil stew with bacon that I'm improvising.” João Paulo smiles, “I hope I don’t poison anyone.”“I think the recipe is interesting.” Vernon sits down as if to stay for lunch, “What about our daughter-in-law?”João Paulo notices that nobody calls Gabriela by her name, “GABRIELA is in the room changing Sandra’s diapers.”Elza smiles, thinking that Gabriela is having a bad time with dirty diapers, “That's part of motherhood. When it was Josias's turn, Tony couldn't buy real diapers. I had to use a dishcloth.”João Paulo is horrified, “I'm glad I had a different father!
Jane and Octavio take Augusto home after a few days in the hospital.The room that Jack used was turned into the baby's room. The reform was up to Octavio, the doting father.Alfred rubs his eyes, “I've never seen so many shades of blue in my life. Your child will think he is drowning.”“Come on, can’t you weave a compliment?” Octavio jokes.Jane deposits Augusto in the crib, he was sleeping peacefully, “For me, it was perfect. And I think Augusto will like it when he grows up.”“Or he’ll have one of the walls painted white.” Alfred teases.Octavio pretends to give his mischievous friend a push on the arm.In the kitchen, Elza is preparing lunch for the couple.“In a little while, the chicken will be on point, people!”“Thank you so much for cooking, Elza,” Jane approaches her.“Don’t mention it. I know the mother is ti
At Octavio's house, he is calling his family in São Paulo.“Yes, Dad, at the first opportunity, we’ll travel there. So you’ll know your grandson. And as for Jack and Veronica... oh, they're recording the soap opera... Yes, Jane doesn't miss an episode. Even more so now that she is on maternity leave, she will even accompany others shows.”Jane is in a white robe, walking slowly, as she is not 100% recovered, “Give my regards to the people of São Paulo.”“Jane is sending hugs and kisses. Okay, bye, Dad!” Octavio hangs up, “The old man is jumping with happiness at the news.”“Let's take pictures and put them together in the newborn album.” Jane looks at the bedroom door where Augusto continues to sleep peacefully.Octavio hugs her from behind, “We made it, huh, honey?”“Mission Accomplished.”The bell is rung. Octavio breaks the
At Octavio's house, he and Jane are embarrassed by Diane asking to see Augusto.“Do you want to see Augusto?” Octavio is in doubt, “For what reason?”“I don't want to cause trouble.” Diane lowers her head, “I just want to know how it feels.”“Diane,” Jane starts to explain, “You're going through a difficult time. I don't think it would be advisable… or prudent.”“Have you been seeing Dr. Silvana?”Diane appears to be tired of answering this, “Yes, Daryl and I are fine. We believe our turn will come at the time.”“If you are sure… come in, then.”Octavio gives space and Diane enters. She goes to the bedroom and faces Augusto.The baby woke up, and now his eyes are open.Diane feels a lump in her throat and her eyes water, “He's beautiful. Congratulations to you both.”“We hope
