What's up?

It hit me...

F***, it hit me!

This is Rosalina.

This is about a failure

of the three blood cell types:

red blood cells,

white blood cells, and platelets.

So what can we see here?

Bleeding, anemia

and some kind of infection.

Can anybody tell me

what it could be?



Who gave me this name?

Excuse me, my dear.

Let me take a look at you.

Let me see your eyes.

Do you bleed when

you brush your teeth?

Yes, I do.

- Do you?

- Yes, I do.

Lay down, please.


You see petechiae, ecchymosis...

It's anemia.

Now sit up.

Well, professor.

It looks like leukemia.

You are right.

Paulo is inspired today.

Well, as for the treatment, Rosalina

should start chemotherapy,

an aggressive

and long treatment, but

she still has the option

of a bone marrow transplant.

Anyone here would like to...

I'll be waiting for you

at the terrace after class.

Alice, maybe you

could say something.

Rosalina is an old friend of mine.

She works with me

and has helped me a lot

with my children at home.

Now I'm trying to help her,

right Rosalina?

Thanks for helping me

with these guys.

Thank you.

Relax! We will take

care of you.

- Excuse me.

- Yes.

I'll be back later.

Land, ho!

- Across the cross!

- Stop it, Paulo.

- You're going to fall down.

- From clay to clay!


There is something

better here. Come!


Come here.

Let me go! Help!

I'm gonna eat you up!

Careful with the cannibal!

Are you going to eat me up,

you cannibal?

Come here.

Come here!


- I have some grass.

- No, not today.

- You can pay me later.

- All right.

Some of your questions

are a bit baffling.

You're focusing on the political

aspect, the moral aspect.

You have to help

the interviewees

understand themselves

as citizens and individuals

and express their needs.

But the research is

really good, Len.

It's really good, Rita.

For God's sake, no way!


- What do you think?

- About what?

"School and Soccer"

by Len Maranho

and Ritinha Almendos

signed by both of us.

No. "School and Soccer"

by Len Maranho.

I'll have my own ideas


Wow, you're so vain!

You can't work as a team.

We are unbeatable together.

All right:

"School and Soccer"

Rita Almendos and

Len Maranho.

It sounds much nicer.

Stop talking nonsense.

We're still 70 bucks

short for the rent.

Give me some money.

It's all in here.

And in here.

I can't believe it!

You lost your key

and then you lost mine.

Damn it!

Let me take a look at this.

"Anatomy for Artists. "

Aren't you a doctor, man?

This is a masterpiece.

- It looks wonderful.

- Wonderful.

You don't pay rent,

you don't pay the phone bill,

you don't pay anything at all.

Your money goes to books

and this crap you smoke.

Stop smoking this sh*t.

It will make you dumb!

You know my philosophy:

it's forbidden to forbid.

So tell the cops,

when they catch you

with your little box,

"It's forbidden to forbid. "

So I'm the one

who spends all the money.

Let's see what's

in your backpack.

What's this?

Cartola! Don't you have

his entire CD collection?

Beth Carvalho, Jamelo.

Samba School!

Giddens is

your department...


"A History of Insanity"?

This is great!

We're even, buddy.

This is for you, buddy!

- You're joking!

- No. There's a dedication.

"Idiots of the world, unite!"

You son of a gun!

- Is it here?

- No, over there.

We lost our keys.

Go ahead!

Give me your bag.

You lost the keys!

I can't believe it!

This place is beautiful!


Anybody home?

Can I have a roasted chicken,
