announcer: televisa presents...
rodrigo: what's with you now?sergio: nora broke up with me.
rodrigo: thank god he tookthat burden away.
sergio: why do you always speakill of nora?
i know she's not the best woman,but i like her,
why can't anyone understandthat?
rodrigo: relax, don't getlike that.
why did she break up with you?sergio: do you want to know why?
because i'm your friend.and because i got you a job.
because she says she can't bewith someone who helps the
person who destroyed hersister's life.
that's why.rodrigo: is that what she said?
that woman is...sergio: hey, don't talk about
her like that in front of me,i told you already.
rodrigo: let's see if you stillthink the same when i tell you
why i dumped lucia.sergio: what the hell does that
have to do with anything?rodrigo: everything,
nora was the reason why.i slept with her three days
before the wedding, see?three days, and she threatened
me to tell everyone if i didn'tleave lucia.
that's why.sergio: that's not true.
rodrigo: of course it is.you were always good to me,
and the least i can do is bethe same with you.
sergio: you're a...rodrigo: hey!
relax, sergio.sergio: let me go!
rodrigo: i know i suck.but what happened between nora
and i happened before you wentback together.
sergio: but you knew i lovedher!
rodrigo: it was a mistake, okay?you know i've paid for it.
and it cost me.lucia: hey, here you are.
a while ago lety came by.she told me about sergio.
i didn't know.nora: it wasn't a big deal.
lucia: maybe it's not but we'resisters.
and i hate not knowing anythingabout your life.
nora: sorry,i do know about yours.
for example,i know you finally took dad's
job.lucia: yes, and does it bother
you?nora: not at all,
i think it's good that you getdistracted with something.
so you can't get your mind offwhat stupid rodrigo did to you.
lucia: yes, it's not easy.specially not knowing why
he did that.hey,
sergio never said anythingto you?
they were always close.nora: no, he didn't tell me.
and i don't think he willbecause i won't see him again.
lucia: why did you break up?nora: i realized we were
going nowhere.specially because i realized the
one i want to get somewherewith is marcelo.
lucia: i figured you liked him.take care of yourself,
you don't know him.you know nothing about him.
nora: oh, you're the worst togive that kind of advise,
i mean, you've known rodrigoall your life
and look what he did to you.amador: where are you going?
i'm talking to you.marcelo: i won't allow you
to treat nazario like that.amador: what?
get out of here now!alonso: you're wrong,
the one who's leaving right nowis you.
amador: you don't mean that,this insolent hit me...
alonso: don't justify yourself,everything has a limit
and i have reached mine.i'm sorry you have to leave
this way.but i don't want you here
anymore.get to work.
nothing happened here.nazario: thanks for defending
me, but it wasn't necessary.>> it's cool not having to see
father or son again.you'll have to be very careful.
you have a very poisonousscorpion on your back.
lucia: are you sureshe's fine?
magdalena: yes, i talked to yourdad and he said your aunt
is fine.stop it.
lucia: well, at leasti'm at ease.
magdalena: yes, drop it.lucia: yes.
magdalena: you know who i sawwhile leaving the factory?
lucia: who?magdalena: marcelo escalante.
lucia: don't say?magdalena: i don't understand
why you don't like him.i think he's charming.
lucia: why is everyonefascinated with him?
even nora is crazy about him.magdalena: is she?
lucia: yes, this morning shetold me she's willing to get far
with him.really far.
magdalena: you seem to bejealous.
lucia: please!i couldn't care less,
i don't even despise him,he means nothing.
look, i'll better go get thecamera to take the pictures
of the catalogue.bye.
nora: hello.marcelo: hello.
nora: i'm here because i feelbad about last night.
marcelo: why did you kiss me?nora: i know you won't believe
me, but since the first timei saw you, i knew you were
the love of my life.marcelo: your boyfriend won't
like that,i understand you have
a boyfriend.nora: i had.
but last night,before i went to see you,
i broke up with him.for you.
marcelo: you shouldn't have,you know nothing about me,
you don't know who i am,where i come from,
you know nothing about me.nora: i have all the time in the
world for you to tell meabout you.
marcelo: i don't know what youwant,
but i swear...nora: no, no.
i want nothing from you.at least not for now.
i just want you to knowwhat to expect from me.
see you.rebeca: hello.
mario: hello.rebeca: did you wait long?
mario: no, i just got here.want to order something?
rebeca: no, i'm good, thanks.thanks for meeting me here.
i didn't want to bother youat your office again.
mario: there's still troublebetween your husband
and amador zuñiga?rebeca: no, that's settled,
although i wouldn't be surprisedif something new came up.
it's something a lot moredelicate.
something i can only tellsomeone i fully trust.
mario: i'm at your orders.rebeca: it's about my child,
i just want to make surealonso protects her.
you understand, don't you?mario: sure.
although that depends on whatalonso decides in his will.
and i don't think he'll leaveher out, don't worry.
rebeca: neither do i.i just want him to be fair.
he has a shameless favoritismfor his child lucia.
he even got her to work in thecompany and i'm sure he'll put
her in charge when the timecomes.
what?mario: it must be hard for you
to live with your sister'swidower.
specially knowing he loved herso much.
rebeca: why are you tellingme this?
mario: it's clear that your maininterest in who he leaves
the assets to is not nora,it's you.
and you're terribly jealousof your niece.
rebeca: you're the only onejealous here.
because you could never forgiveme for leaving you and marry
alonso, right?mario: that happened so long
ago, i don't even remember.rebeca: you know what they say?
that you're alone because youcould never forget me.
mario: i'll give you a piece ofadvise.
don't think you're thatimportant.
the world doesn't spin aroundyou.
not even your husband's worlddoes.
rebeca: i can see it wasa mistake to come to you.
[shutter]marcelo: i didn't know you were
here.lucia: i didn't know i had
to tell you i was coming.would you excuse me?
i'm working,would you leave me alone?
marcelo: i would, but the thingis i'm working as well.
so, if you don't want to bewhere i am, you'll have to wait
until i'm done.lucia: you're unbearable.
and of course i won't leave.i'm staying.
marcelo: i'm putting all thisin the inventory.
lucia: don't bother me,i'm working!
you know what?i'll rather be back some other
time in which i don't haveto run into you.
i don't see the pointof having to put up with you.
magdalena: hello, trini.trinidad: hello!
i'm glad you came early today.so we can all eat together.
magdalena: i didn't go to thehospital.
i went to the factoryto pick up alonso because
rebeca wasn't feeling well,and then i spent some time
with lucia.trinidad: what's wrong with your
sister?magdalena: nothing, fortunately.
i think what makes her feel badis knowing alonso never loved
her as he loved adriana.and that makes her sick.
trinidad: i agree,pass me that plant.
magdalena: sure.trinidad: and to think that your
sister could have marriedany man she wanted to.
magdalena: she always wantedto marry alonso.
trinidad: why do you say that?magdalena: i don't know.
pay no attention to me.hey, guess who i ran into
a few days ago?remember mario, rebeca's
i run into him sometimes and wetalk.
he's always pleased to see me.magdalena: he was really kind
to me.i was glad to see him.
but i was surprised he never gotmarried.
trinidad: look,people say he's still in love
with your sister.magdalena: oh, sometimes i pity
her because although she triesto pretend she's happy,
i know she's not.trinidad: i agree with you.
why don't you get closer to her?magdalena: i don't think it'll
work out.trinidad: i know she hasn't been
nice to you,but blood is blood.
and even if she doesn't say so,she needs you.
and you need her.brigida: look what he did to
you!amador: enough, it's not
that bad.brigida: i can't believe alonso,
who's supposed to be yourfriend, took his side.
amador: it's not just that,he also kicked me out
of the factory like a dog.brigida: don't even tell me.
so?won't you say anything?
rodrigo: what do you wantme to say?
we knew this was coming.amador: what do you mean?
are you a fortune teller now?let me tell you you're the only
one to blame here.if you didn't come up with that
silliness, that fool,marcelo escalante would have
never showed up.rodrigo: dad, don't pretend.
your problems with alonsogo way back.
because you always resented him.you could never deal
with him being successfuland you having to work for him.
amador: don't ever talk to yourfather like that.
brigida: no,calm down.
rodrigo: i guess i deservedthat, but you know it
was the truth.amador: where are you going?
get back here!brigida: please, you can't lose
control like that.amador: be quiet.
be quiet, please!neither of you know how i feel.
alonso humiliated me,and i can't take that.
marcelo: sorry, i'm leaving.is there anything else?
alonso: no, have a nice weekend.marcelo: thanks.
do you feel bad for firingmr. zuñiga?
alonso: it's more than that.amador had been my friend
for years.and i'm sad it ended like this.
marcelo: i confess i feel badfor what happened because either
way, i was involved and i thankyou for supporting me.
alonso: i was supportingnazario,
i saw what amador did to him.i can't allow it.
marcelo: it was really bad.maybe you're mad at him
because of what his kiddid to lucia.
alonso: i don't know,you might be right.
lately things with amadorweren't good at all.
and he was a negative influencefor the company.
marcelo: you should know,thanks again, and you can count
on me unconditionally,i guess that now that he's gone,
you need some help in theadministration area.
alonso: yes, it will be hard.i'll see what i can do.
i'll figure it out.thanks for your offer.
marcelo: excuse me.alonso: go ahead.
excuse me, did normita leave?marcelo: i think so.
alonso: too bad,she mentioned nora was here,
but with all that happened,i didn't pay any attention.
it's okay, i'll ask herwhat she wanted when i get home.
marcelo: excuse me.alonso: go ahead, see you.
>> miss, sergio is waiting foryou in the backyard.
nora: tell him you don't know atwhat time i'm coming back
and convince him to leave, okay?>> i did tell him that.
but he said he wouldn't leaveuntil you came back.
nora: he's so stubborn!don't you understand or what?
i don't want to be with you.i don't.
sergio: i talked to rodrigo.i know everything.
nora: i don't know whatyou're talking about.
sergio: of course you do!stop pretending.
i know everything that happenedbetween you two.
and i know about you were goingto do if he married lucia.
nora: he's crazy!he doesn't know what to say
to justify what he did.sergio: he wouldn't have made
that up.nora: you believe him
and not me?this is outrageous!
sergio: of course!it all makes sense.
even the envelope you gave mebefore the wedding.
nora: you know? whatever!sergio: hey, that's why you
wanted to take me back.so that no one would suspect
of you and link you to him.nora: let go!
sergio: people were right.i don't know how i could fall
in love with a snake.the fact that you used me
is not important.but that you hurt your sister
like that,is unforgivable.
lucia: hello, sergio,how are you?
sergio: fine, excuse me.lucia: did you come to see
my sister?sergio: yes, i just saw her
and i don't feel like seeing herever again.
lucia: i'm sorry you broke up.sergio: it's nothing compared
to what you went throughbecause of...
lucia: so you know why rodrigostood me up?
sergio: no...lucia: if you do, tell me.
sergio: ask your sister.she must have more details
than i do.lucia: why did he say that?
why?nora: i don't know.
lucia: answer me,what is it you know?
nora: nothing, i told you!lucia: get back here!
[music]trinidad: stop, cheer up.
it's not like you have committeda crime.
nazario: i just feel bad aboutwhat happened today.
trinidad: you never liked amadoranyway.
nazario: and i still don't.but alonso fired him for
something i caused.and that makes me feel guilty,
very guilty.trinidad: and you know why?
because you like to pretendyou're strong, unreachable,
but you're soft.nazario: no, that's not it.
i just know when things arenot fair.
and this was not fair at all.trinidad: did you tell alonso?
nazario: no, but i'll have to.i don't want to make more
trouble.trinidad: it couldn't be worse.
nazario: to end a partnershipis not easy.
besides, amador is a resentfulguy, i fear what he could do
to alonso.trinidad: or to marcelo
escalante.because even if you don't trust
him, you have to admit he stoodup for you without anyone asking
him to.nazario: he shouldn't have.
trinidad: no, dear.i'm glad he did it.
nora: i told you,he's upset because i blew him
off.and he wants to take it out.
lucia: how's that related to me?what would he get out of telling
me something like that?nora: don't you get it?
he wants us to fight!lucia: swear to me you know
nothing.swear me you don't know why
rodrigo stood me up.please!
nora: i swear,all i know is that they left you
some unsigned lettersbefore the wedding and then,
that happened.lucia: maybe he was referring
to the woman who wrote thembecause you know who that is.
nora: i said no, leave me alone!rebeca: what's going on here?
nora: she's convinced i know whyrodrigo stood her up.
but i don't.lucia: it didn't just popped
into my head, sergio told me toask her because she knows why.
and there's a reason why he saidthat.
rebeca: are you insane?how could you doubt your own
sister?lucia: i just want to know
the truth.nora, i need to know.
rebeca: you won't find outthrough her and stop blaming
everyone for what he did to you.lucia: i'll believe you.
but listen.if i ever find out
you knew and you didn't tell me,i'll never forgive you.
never.rebeca: would you tell me what
happened?nora: rodrigo told sergio
[music playing]brigida: please open the door,
rodrigo.rodrigo: what do you want, mom?
brigida: i want to talk aboutwhat happened with your dad.
brigida: turn the music downand open the door.
rodrigo: i know what you'll say,that i was disrespectful
and that i deserved the slap.brigida: yes, that's what
i'll say, but you have to knowhe felt bad for what he's done.
rodrigo: i don't think so.brigida: try to understand him.
don't take it so seriously.he's upset and very nervous,
we both know that factoryis his life.
even if his participationas partner is not much,
it's his life.rodrigo: i know, and i also know
none of this would have happenedif i'd married lucia.
brigida: well, yes,your dad is right about that.
even if i'll never understandwhy you decided not to marry
her, it doesn't matter anymore.what matters now is that
your dad feels bad,i'm so worried, i fear he'll do
something silly.rodrigo: where is he?
brigida: i don't know,i didn't ask him where he was
going because i don't wantto pressure him.
>> hey, boss.amador: hey.
>> may i?i was glad you called.
that means you have something.amador: i've been recalling,
i think i remember you.>> i knew you would.
what can i do for you?amador: last night you said
you'd do anything.what did you mean exactly?
>> anything you want.you just have to try me.
amador: well, pay attentionbecause i have something
delicate to ask you.you'll get the other half
once the job is done.>> don't worry,
tell me what i have to do.rodrigo: darn.
good afternoon, mrs. rebeca.rebeca: not that good,
i'm here to tell youyou're a coward.
only a sleaze like you wouldtell people about what happened
with my daughter.is that how you'll try to get
lucia back?rodrigo: we won't be back
together, i was stupid enoughto get involved with your
daughter and i'm paying for it.rebeca: now she's to blame?
as i said, you're a coward.rodrigo: whatever, it doesn't
matter now.rebeca: yes it does.
as it matters that you wantjeopardize nora's reputation.
so find the way of shuttingyour friend up.
otherwise, when all thisblows up, you'll be the most
damaged.rodrigo: what else could happen
to me?i already lost lucia anyway.
rebeca: you don't know whatcould happen to your family
if my husband finds out.he won't hesitate to kick
your dad out on the streets.rodrigo: i guess you weren't
updated.your husband fired my dad
from the factory today.excuse me.
lucia: i know it's horriblenot to trust my own sister.
i can't help it.lety: i wouldn't trust her
either, because if what sergiosaid wasn't true,
he wouldn't have told youjust because.
lucia: yes, but if nora knewsomething, she wouldn't
have a reason to keep quiet.don't you think?
lety: i guess.unless...
lucia: what?lety: nothing, forget it.
i'm sure you'll get mad,so i rather not say it.
lucia: tell me, lety,unless what?
lety: unless she had somethingto do with it.
i mean, she's involved somehow.brigida: i'm glad you're back,
i was worried, where were you?amador: at the bar,
is that a problem?brigida: by yourself?
amador: yes.i lost the only friend i had
today.and my son doesn't care about
my problems.but don't worry,
alonso will regret humiliatingme.
brigida: you drank too much,you don't know what
you're saying.why don't we go lay down?
amador: i'm not drunk.i don't need baby-sitters,
or anyone's pity,i'm well aware of everything.
brigida: my god, what willhappen?
[phone rings]milagros: hello?
marcelo: hey, mom, how are you?milagros: are you on your way
home?marcelo: that's why i called,
i won't be able to be therethis weekend.
i got some things, bought otherthings here and i need to get
the apartment in shape.milagros: you never came back
since you started working.marcelo: i know, but i promise
i'll be there next weekend.milagros: i feel lonely, son.
ever since your brother is gone,it's even worse.
i need him.marcelo: i can imagine,
but please, don't be sad.i'll be there next saturday
no matter what.milagros: okay, i'll be waiting.
marcelo: [thinks] i miss mybrother too.
i swear i do.[doorbell]
brigida: you must be marceloescalante.
marcelo: right, what can i dofor you?
brigida: you must be happy,you took my son's job,
you got his girl and hisapartment.
and last but not least,you made my husband lose
what he worked for so hardto get.
marcelo: are you done?brigida: no, i still have to say
i damn the day you showed upin our lives.
but you'll pay for everything,everything.
rebeca: is it true you firedamador?
alonso: news run fast.rebeca: yes.
so it seems.what happened?
alonso: you know that latelywe weren't getting along.
and something happened todaywhich i couldn't ignore
and i made the decision.rebeca: i never thought that
time would come.alonso: me neither.
rebeca: can you fire him justlike that?
what about the partnership?alonso: i'll have to get
a lawyer to annul it.i was thinking of mario
hernandez.rebeca: why him?
alonso: he's hard working,polite.
rebeca: so they say.nora: dad?
alonso: yes, come in.nora: nazario is looking for
nora: aha.alonso: i'll go see what
he needs.nora: did you go see rodrigo?
rebeca: yes, but it won't helpus much.
nora: why?rebeca: so that you're ready
for what may happen.rodrigo: i figured you'd be
here.sergio: better here than home
alone.rodrigo: waiter, the same
for me, please.you told nora, didn't you?
sergio: sure, i had to.rodrigo: i guess she denied
the whole thing.sergio: how could you and
nora...?rodrigo: i told you,
it was stupid.i can't blame it all on her,
but i feel as if she had set mea trap and i fell for it
like a fool.sergio: why would she do that?
rodrigo: so i wouldn't marryher sister.
sergio: why?rodrigo: out of resentment,
envy.because she couldn't see lucia
happy.sergio: i don't really think
nora is that mean and that...rodrigo: thanks.
when i told you about nora,i gave you a ticking bomb,
so handle it wisely, please.sergio: sorry, but the ticking
bomb is already ticking.rodrigo: what?
sergio: i ran into luciaand i told her to ask her sister
if she knew what had happened.sorry, mate, but i ran into her
and i couldn't help it,she asked me right away.
alonso: knowing you the wayi know you, i understand
you feel guilty.believe me, you have no reason
to.nazario: you don't know how
things went down.i provoked him.
alonso: whatever, it was thestraw that broke the camel.
you know we weren't gettingalong.
nazario: are you happy ofhow you fired him?
alonso: of course not.nazario: you're still in time
to make it right.alonso: it's weird that it's
precisely you the one whodefends him so.
i have to say marcelodid the same.
nazario: i don't know why he didit, but i do because what
happened today doesn't seem fairto me.
alonso: stop feeling guilty.nazario: for better or worse,
amador is your friend, and asmuch i despise him,
i have to admit he helpedthe factory come afloat.
and you should admit it too.don't get carried away
by emotions.think about what i said.
[doorbell]marcelo: now what?
trinidad: sorry for comingunannounced.
you don't know me, i'm trinidad,nazario's wife.
and lucia's godmother,good evening.
marcelo: good evening,please come in.
sorry for the mess.trinidad: i know you're getting
anything to drink?trinidad: i'm fine.
i brought you this plant.it's an african violet.
i hope you find a good spotfor it.
marcelo: please, take a sit.thank you, why all this?
trinidad: it's a way to thankyou for standing up
for my husband.it was about time someone
stopped that guy.marcelo: i just did what
i thought was right.trinidad: nazario is a man
of few words.but i'm sure he'll never forget
what you did for him.an neither will i.
marcelo: at least i earned thisnice plant.
trinidad: it needs a spot withsunlight and water once a week.
marcelo: don't worry,i'll take very good care of it.
trinidad: i won't waste moreof your time.
marcelo: that's okay.trinidad: thank you.
marcelo: thank you.trinidad: i can see you'll need
a woman's help here.you might find a good girl here.
marcelo: [chuckles]trinidad: a pleasure.
marcelo: the same here.trinidad: don't forget,
water it once a week.i cultivated it.
it's from my own garden.marcelo: it's really beautiful,
thanks.trinidad: i was pleased to meet
you.marcelo: me too, thanks.
trinidad: bye.nazario: please don't just
ignore what i told you.alonso: i promise i'll consider
it.lucia: good evening.
nazario: so good to see you.lucia: how are you?
nazario: i'm fine, thanks.lucia: dad, i need to go to the
factory and check out moreplaces to take pictures
for the catalogue.alonso: now?
lucia: yes, why not?alonso: it's night time,
the place is deserted.we don't even have a night guard
because we never needed one.lucia: that's good i'll bother
no one.alonso: dear, are you okay?
you seem nervous.lucia: i'm fine, i just want to
move along with what you askedme.
alonso: it's saturday,you should be having fun
with your friends.lucia: i don't want to have
fun.i just want to get distracted,
that's all.nazario: i could go with her.
alonso: it's absurd that shewants to go now.
nazario: she wants to move onwith the pictures you asked her.
alonso: okay, i'll never getwomen or pampering godfathers.
nazario: i'll bring her back.lucia: thank you.
see you later, dad.alonso: see you, dear.
thanks.nazario: are you really okay?
i agree with your dad,you're acting strange.
lucia: no, i argued with norabut i don't want to tell dad
because i'll just worry him.in the end, it's my problem
and i'll have to fix it myself.nazario: tell me in the car.
if you want.lucia: thanks for coming with
me, i need to do somethingto stop thinking about silly
things.nazario: yes, sure, let's go.
[music]rebeca: what did nazario want?
alonso: to defend amador,he doesn't agree with
my decision.rebeca: oh, so he doesn't agree
with you breaking upthe partnership either?
alonso: either?who else doesn't agree with it?
rebeca: well, i was thinkingit's not right that you fire
amador, not like that.alonso: maybe you, nazario and
everyone else is right.i got carried away
and made a rushed decision.rebeca: yes, you should talk
to amador, it's the leasthe deserves after all those
years of friendship.don't you think?
alonso: i will, but let's dropthe subject,
could we have dinner?rebeca: sure.
i'll go tell nora and luciato join us for dinner.
alonso: lucia left.she went with nazario
to the factory to checksomething out for the catalogue.
rebeca: oh, the catalogue.let me say i still don't agree
with lucia working with you.alonso: again?
rebeca: yes, again!tell me,
you want to leave the businessto lucia?
alonso: why do you ask that?rebeca: i want to know what
would nora's place beif something happened to you.
alonso: you're offending me!lucia, nora and you will be
protected.rebeca: okay, don't get mad.
you're upset about this amadorthing.
you better fix it.[cell phone]
alonso: yes?tell me, marcelo.
lucia: i think you should geta night guard.
nazario: we used to, he died,he was old.
and your dad decided not to hireanother and he was right
because we never really neededone.
