Nadia angrily returns to the supermarket, still unhappy that the police don’t want to work on Thierry’s kidnapping. She opens the office with a bang and goes straight to the computer to turn it on.
Thierry accompanies her, “When I saw you, I thought I should help you. You left the mansion early, sis. What was it this time? Oh, thanks for the suit.”
Nadia sits down at her desk, “I thought you’d look good on it and it’s your size. Anyway, I tried to contact that Sergeant Moraes, but he’s on paternity leave.”
“Wait for him to return, then.” Thierry smiles.
“It’s not a matter of him coming back.” Nadia opens a drawer and chooses a CD to play on the CPU, “They don’t want to talk about your kidnapping anymore.”
Thierry breaks his smile, “Ehr... Sis, I suggest you listen to them. Put that aside.”
Nadia is displeased, “But... You t
At the Lafayette Supermarket, Nadia takes the opportunity to talk about a vital topic.“Okay, let’s discuss our company’s beloved advertising.”Thierry starts laughing, “Oh, I know! The commercial!”Nadia bangs her fist on the desk, “HOW COULD YOU, Thierry! You should be committed to an anonymous pervert clinic! The only thing that gets talked about on the Internet is how tight that blondie’s shirt is! Can you tell me if our sales increased because of this?”Thierry stops laughing. No, he doesn’t know.Claudio smiles triumphantly, “Looks like little brother is treating the supermarket like it’s a toy. Young man, learn one thing: you need to attract your clientele and not repel them.”“And what do you know about business?” Thierry retorts fiercely, “You were a supposed swimming instructor who seduced your apprentices’ mothers!”C
Octavio is appalled at Daryl concluding that the incident involving his son’s near-death was pure pretense to ruin his party.“My God, how you consider yourself too high!” Octavio stops shaking and faces his opponent, “Why did you come to that preposterous conclusion?”“Is this a preposterous conclusion?” Daryl raises his eyebrows, “For me, coming from someone who hates me, it’s a logical conclusion. If I remember correctly, Diane invited your wife to help with the preparations and she didn’t even bother to refuse on her cell phone; she just didn’t show up!”“She didn’t want to help, so what?” Octavio retorts disrespectfully, “She didn’t want to attend, and neither did I plan to. The three of us wanted to stay at home, enjoying a good movie on TV. We ended up spending the night at Church thanking God for the deliverance!”“Don’t blasphem
In the Teodoro building, Beto asks Patrick if he made peace with Felipe, but it was the same as asking if he deals drugs.Patrick kneels and picks up the letters he dropped in shock, “Beto, you ask every question...”“What is it, Pat?” Beto scratches the back of his neck, “Isn’t there enough confusion in your life? First my daughter and Thierry, now a boy you barely know?”“HE must know me a lot!” Patrick bellows, “I narrated everything to Mr. Mountain, but it looks like I’ve done wrong. My boss was not very pleased, as if I were a snitch out to tarnish the image of his adopted son. But why would I do that?”“Want me to talk to him?” Beto offers to raise the peace flag.“Better not, Beto. I don’t want any more trouble for you, remember your condition.”Patrick leaves and goes upstairs to his apartment.Teresa approaches and finds her
“You did what?” Diane asked her husband in amazement in his office.“I confronted the moron, honey!” Daryl walks in circles around the room, “He clearly sabotaged our party! I imagine how traumatized Felipe must have been for the rest of his life!”Diane holds her husband to stop circling like crazy, “Stop circling, I’m getting dizzy. Honey, don’t overdo it. Alan has been a great friend and has introduced Felipe to everyone we know. Especially people their age.”Daryl has a feverish look, “Yeah, and it was at one of those shows that he had his first run-in with Patrick!”Diane is startled, “Why did Patrick do that?”“Felipe recognized Pat as one of those who chased him away when he appeared at the back of the restaurant.” Daryl informs her, “Obviously, Felipe didn’t say he was the beggar, but the abuse left an imprint on his mind and heart. P
At Crystal Blue, Daryl and Felipe have the first conversation between father and son, even if it’s through adoption.“Dad, did I do something wrong?” Felipe asks, worried.“I’m glad you call me Dad.” Daryl smiles, “Sit down, son. You mentioned Patrick, and I know there is a problem with him.”“Do you remember what he did?” Felipe frowns.“Yes, he tried to throw you out of the restaurant.” Daryl sits face-to-face, “You never explained to me what you really wanted...”“I wanted to eat that chocolate dough. It smelled good!” Felipe smiles.“I understood. But, remember that we don’t want people to know about your past on the streets. Facing Patrick, you almost gave yourself away.”“He didn’t recognize me.” Felipe scowls.“You say it like you WANT him to recognize you, Felipe.” Daryl rubs hi
At Crystal Blue, Maggie enters the restaurant and goes straight to the bar.“Diane, make me a martini on the rocks, please!”Diane turns to her sister-in-law, “And may I know why you are so desperate?”“The usual: problems involving Gabriela.”Diane fixes the drink, frowning, “Did you get back in touch with that whore?”Maggie sighs, “She called my desk instead of my cell phone. She’s pretty smart, isn’t she? Anyway, I listened to her despair and thought maybe she wanted to vent her sins. MAYBE she wanted to repent and make things right. So I decided to give it a try.”“Why did you think Gabriela MAYBE regret it?” Diane passes her the drink.“Because yesterday, Bernie heard João Paulo announce to Josias that he was going to ask for a divorce.” Maggie takes the glass and takes a few sips while Diane gapes in awe.“Maggie,
Jane didn’t understand why Octavio was suddenly given a month of vacation off the HR schedule. When Octavio tried to explain, she shrugged.“At least you help me take care of Augusto.”“The problem is, if word gets out, will Daryl Mountain try to kill me while I’m at home?” Octavio alarms her, “What if he does something to the baby?”Maternal instinct spoke louder in Jane, “If he dares to touch my son’s hair, he will know the fury of a protective mother!”Octavio smiles and looks at Augusto sleeping in the crib, “Don’t worry, honey. Nothing will happen.”“Nothing will happen AFTER you tell Josias everything,” Jane advises him.Octavio, however, shakes his head, “No, Josias needs to worry about his company. Let us, the Mottas, face the Mountain boldly.”Jane snuggles into his chest. It won’t be an easy battle.******
At General Hospital, Gabriela enters Dr. Silvana to talk about Sandra.Dr. Silvana is curious, “Good morning, Mrs. Queiroz. Do you want to take some exams?”Gabriela sits down, “Yes, I want to do a DNA test.”Dr. Silvana is paralyzed for a few seconds, then comments, “Hmm... And who would the test be on?”“My daughter Sandra.” Gabriela says quietly, “I want to know if she really is my current husband’s daughter.”It’s Gabriela’s tranquility that gets Dr. Silvana alarmed, “Mrs. Queiroz, I remember that we did a DNA test with the help of my colleague, Dr. Antenor, and the test—”“I know the result of THAT test.” Gabriela interrupts her, “But I want to perform a second test. Call Dr. Antenor for us to formalize this crap soon.”Dr. Silvana gets irritated, “Mrs. Queiroz, a DNA test cannot be requested as if you wer
