How about you, darling,

sweet or savory?

She's real sweet, Ben.

Hardly, I just get

the scary types.

Alfredinho, they don't like

men sucking up to them.

I just love romantic men.

Hey Ben! I'm out of gas.

Give me a push from behind?

Yeah, sure.

"Hail holy Queen,

mother of mercy!

Our life, our sweetness

and our hope.

To thee do we cry,

poor banished children of Eve.

To thee do we send up our

sighs in this valley of tears.

Turn then, most

gracious Advocate...

thine eyes of mercy

towards us.

And after this our exile

show unto us Jesus."


- Rats ate people...

the starved came

from the swamp region.

The mystery of the she-rat,

panic at the ranches.

- Only the Shadow can...

- Paulinho!

- What is it, mom?

- Paulinho!

- Today, 10 p.m...

- Your father, son...

your father's here.

The new jets are coming!

- Hi, son.

- Hi dad!

- Hi darling.

- Hi darling.

Shooting Star,

jets like shooting stars...

ten 50mm machine guns...

five rockets

and a 900kg bomb!

Top speed 500 miles an hour...

go fly, son!

F80's, I'm going

to fly the F80, hon!

That's marvelous!

Well, it's better

than the Vampire...

remember the Vampire...

- You'll be promoted!

- Which dived like this...

And me too.

- I've got news!

- Dive, an inacredible dive!

I'm looking for a job.

Hon, I've got to work...

I've got to work.

Paulinho's turning 8.

Remember when we met...

I was the best secretary...

Son, I was the best secretary...

at the Industry

Workers Institute, right?

- Right.

- I'm so happy...

we're all growing

in this home, everyone...

me, you, Paulinho.

We can travel, hon,

to the USA...

we can earn money together!

I'm so happy!
