Hey, guess what!

She already knows.

What are you doing here?

Where's Maria?

My husband keeps

running off the help.

The other day he sat down on her

lap like it was no big deal.

Scared the living daylights

out of the girl.

She didn't come back the next

day or the day after that.

I told Victor he has to quit

scaring away the help.

I don't mind cooking and

cleaning once in a while,

but every day? No.

Give me a fresh chicken, please.

Jose Luis!

Get me a fresh chicken.

You better keep an eye

on your mother.

First a car, and then

who knows what?

Yeah. Remember Doa Loda?

She got the little dog to keep

her company after her

children left?

Well, you saw what happened.

She now has twelve. Inbreds.

And their heads are so big for

their body, and all they do

is yap.

Are you saying my mother

is gonna end up with a fleet

of cars?

Well, Doa Petra

got her boobs done

when she turned sixty.

She did not get

her breasts done.

I don't know why

she bothers.

Nobody wants to touch 'em.

She did not get

her breasts done.

They are padded.

Just like yours.

And anyway, um...

Ama has been talking about

getting this car for a while,

and I just, you know,

I don't see the harm in it.

Well, I'm just saying

you should be careful.

I'm done.

I'll be back next week.

Thank you, Don Pedro.

You know,

I can help you with this.

The car. I have a license.

I can teach you how to drive.

That isn't necessary.

What? You afraid I'll...

dirty the car?

Oh, no, that isn't it at all.

Of course not!


Then what?


Then we'll start next week.

But... but... I...

I can't pay you!

No mujer, es un favor.

No, no, no, no!


you turn it on.

Tell your mom to buy

a washer already.

Why would she,

when she has me?

Let's call someone.

There's nobody to call.
