[THEME MUSIC PLAYING]

Oh.

Dave, welcome.

Come, I'll take you
to your secretary.

[DAVE CLEARS THROAT]

Oh my god, it's Sir Dave!

- Good morning, Sir Dave!
- Good morning, sir!

Good morning.

Assist him.

This way, sir.

So, the rumors are true.



He now owns the ranch.

Does this mean
he's our new boss?

Sir Paco, now that

Sir Dave owns the ranch,

does this mean

we'll lose our jobs?

We're all worried, sir.

I'm worried for my family.

Sir, we wouldn't be worried

if the ranch was left to you.

But, Sir Dave?

He was gone for a long time.

[SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]

[SIGHS DEEPLY]



Uh…

Don't worry, Allan.

The ranch only changed hands

because of Papa's death.

Nothing else will change.

Thank you, sir.

Sir, the ranch at the next town

was also left

to the owner's son,

but the new owner

became greedy.

That's right, sir.

He sold the land

and it was turned into

a residential area.

That won't happen to us.

Dave won't do anything

to harm the ranch.

But if he does,

I'll give him a firm

uppercut for you.

- [LAUGHTER]
- Thank you, sir.

Don't worry, okay?

Let's get back to work.

Sir, here are Sir Freddie's
financial files

in case you want
to go over them.

Thank you.

Dave.

Yeah?

I have a brilliant idea.

That sounds suspicious.

Hear me out.

I want to help out
at the ranch.

Okay. In what way?

I want to work at the ranch
under an official title.

Are you serious?

Of course.

I want to be useful
to our family.

It's the least I could do.

Well, let's see.

First, we need to have
a family meeting,

so call the others.

Okay.

Right away.

I told you to tap
the 500-peso bill we got

from today's first customer
so we'd have more sales.

Business is so slow,
thanks to you.

You know,
it's your negativity

that's pushing
good luck away.

[EXHALES DEEPLY]

[PHONE RINGS]

It's Drew.
Why is he calling?

Drew? What's up?

Dave needs everyone here
for a family meeting.

[GASPS] Right now? Really?

Yes, right now.
See you at the ranch.

[COLLEEN CHUCKLES]

- What did he say?
- Let's close early.

Dave is calling everyone
for a family meeting.

It looks like it's going
to be a good day!

Guys, I'm sorry
for the short notice.

I know that you're dying to know
my plans for the ranch.

And to be honest,

I still don't have any.

Please give me
more time to weigh

the best options
for the ranch.

What about the ranch's
operations and workers?

I promised them
that nothing will change.

Nothing will change.

It will operate as usual.

We won't fire
any of the workers.

But, Dave, that's not
the issue here.

Doesn't my husband have a right
to the ranch too?

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

He's an Estrella, too!

Colleen!

It's true, Seb.

You shouldn't be afraid
to assert your rights.

Colleen, just stop it!

Snaps for Colleen.
She's right.

Guys, I know.

I know. That's why I'm asking
you to extend your patience.

I don't want you to think
I'm planning

to have sole ownership
of the ranch,

because that's the
farthest thing from my mind.

Great!

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Gusting, how are the calves?

They're all healthy, sir.

They're getting all
the vitamins they need.

Okay, good.

- Sir Paco!
- Have the feeds been delivered?

- Yes, sir.
- The cows are ready

for delivery.

Perfect. Thank you,
Gusting, Allan.

I told you so, love. We've
nothing to worry about.

Well, I'm happy that
our workers are happy.

But, love, imagine if
we were able

to put up a canning factory.

We could've given them
more opportunities.

Well, at least Dave

is thinking about
what's best for the ranch.

We'll see about that.

Love…

[COW MOOING]

Can't you two just make up?

Talk to him.

He may not be expecting it,
but I'm sure he'll be happy.

[SCOFFS]

I'll think about it.

Don't think about it. Do it.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL PLAYING]

[SIGHS DEEPLY]

If you won't do it,
your dad's ghost will haunt you.

He doesn't want to
see his family falling apart.

[COW MOOING]

- Did you hear that?
- Mm-hmm.

Okay, fine.

I'll talk to him.

But let's have fun later, okay?

[CHUCKLES]

Whatever.

[GIGGLES]

Oh, you!

- What?
- Fine. Let me shower first.

Oh!

Love, I almost forgot.

This is important.

I got an email
from Good Foods

saying we have an overbilling
from three months ago.

Goodness. Do I have to find
the invoice for that?

Pretty please?

You're good at it.

Please, love.

Fine, Mr. Estrella.
I'll verify it.

But you won't be sleeping
beside me tonight.

And I won't shower anymore.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL CONTINUES]

That's fine.

Ma'am, here are the other
invoices you requested.

Seriously? I have to
check all of them?

Yes, ma'am.

I can help you if you want.

No need. You've been
working all day.

Besides, your husband
might scold you again

- if you go home late.
- [CHUCKLES]

Yeah.

It's okay, I can handle this.
You may leave now.

- Are you sure, ma'am?
- Yes. Go!

[CHUCKLES]

Alright. Bye, Miss Cherry!
Thank you!

- Good night!
- Good night.

Papa wasn't really fond of
talking about the business.

I never even cared to ask.

That's why his decision
surprised me.

Well, not even Paco knew

all of your dad's
business decisions.

I suppose it was because

he didn't share
your father's perspective.

What do you mean?

Paco liked to spend money
on trivial projects.

Once, he proposed building a
canning factory to your father.

And?

Imagine, he wanted to build
a corned beef factory…

- [SLAMS TABLE]
- from scratch.

[PACO] It looks like
Seb's enjoying bartending.

[DREW] Can you believe
he started doing that

just because he wanted
to impress some chicks?

- Of course, I can.
- [CHUCKLES]

Knowing him?
Yeah, I can believe that.

[SIGHS]

- [PACO] Uh-oh.
- What are you laughing about?

[PACO, DREW CHUCKLE]

Nothing.

- Really?
- We're not laughing.

- I'm not buying it.
- Nobody's laughing.

What's going on with you?

Nothing much.

I was just thinking that

we Estrellas
should hang out again.

- What?
- Hang out?

- [PACO] Yeah.
- Are you sick?

- I'm not sick. I'm serious.
- [CHUCKLING]

Cherry's right.

We're a family, right?

So, if we're going
to be together

in the house or in business,

we might as well
like each other.

Right? Does that make sense?

[SEB] Good point.

So, why don't we do
activities together?

[SCOFFS]

We were never really close,
even as kids.

[SCOFFS]

That's because you never
joined us whenever we played.

Paco's proposal
was too expensive.

And to produce what?

A single product?

But every project requires
a huge initial investment.

Yeah, but this one?
It was way too much.

Well?

Let's do it.

- I'm game.
- Mm-hmm.

What about you? You in?

- Sure.
- Yeah?

Alright.

Anyway, I have to go
pick Cherry up.

Hey, pay for our drinks first.

Don't you have any money?

Isn't this on the house?

- Seriously, bro?
- Just kidding.

- I'll pay.
- You're not even a regular.

- Don't I get a family discount?
- [CHUCKLING]

- Here you go. Bye.
- Yeah.

- See you.
- Take care.

[YAWNS]

[SOFT MUSIC PLAYING]

You're definitely not sleeping
with me tonight, Paco.

[SIGHS]

[UNSETTLING MUSIC PLAYING]

Pa?

- [TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]
- Pa!

Pa…

Pa!

Pa…

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[CRYING] Pa!

- Pa!
- Help me…

- Pa! Pa!
- Help me…

[CHERRY WHIMPERING]

Help me!

Pa! [GASPS]

[SOBBING]

[MELANCHOLIC MUSIC PLAYING]

I hope you drop by
the office often

so I can introduce you
to everyone.

[CHUCKLES] Alright.

Well, I'll get going, then.

- Thank you so much, Uncle Jim.
- Alright.

[SIGHS HEAVILY]

[WOMAN SOBBING]

[SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]

Cherry!

[SOBBING CONTINUES]

- Hey. Cherry.
- It's…

…Papa.

- [CRYING]
- [SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

What… What happened?

Cherry, are you okay?

[CRYING CONTINUES]

Here, Cherry.

Drink this.

- Here.
- [SOBS]

Eat this.

Are you okay?

You want to go to a hospital?

What happened?
What's the problem?

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SOBBING]

I-It's Papa.

Papa Panyong.

Mister Panyong?

I dreamt of him, Dave.

He was lying on the beach,
covered in blood.

[SOBS]

He was covered in blood,
but he was alive.

He was very much alive
in my dream, Dave.

And…

…he was asking me for help.

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SOBBING]

He was there.
He needed my help.

- There, there.
- [CRYING]

Dave…

I saw Papa.

Here.

[SOBBING]

Love?

[SIGHS]

Love?

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Love.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

I don't know.

It really felt like…

Papa was still alive.

It's like he was
reaching out to me.

Did you do something
to upset him?

Of course, not.

I didn't forget that
it's his birthday tomorrow.

Hold on, maybe that's why
he was in my dream.

Anyway, when I woke up,

my chest hurt
and I could barely breathe.

Love, you should've called me.

[SOFT MUSIC PLAYING]

Dave was there anyway.
He saw me.

Hmm.

So that's why
you were together.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL PLAYING]

Love.

Is that jealousy I'm hearing?

Love--

What?

No.

Of course, not.

What?

Love, don't be jealous.

I'm not--

Love, I trust you, but--

Hey. Don't finish
that sentence.

- Okay, okay.
- [CHUCKLES]

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL CONTINUES]

Love, does this mean…

I don't have to sleep
on the sofa?

Is that okay?

- Hmm…
- Mm-hmm?

I'll think about it.

You will?
Alright, think it over.

Wait, I can't think.

- Oh, really?
- Yes, love.

- Why?
- You're making it hard.

Really? Then just say yes.

Hmm…

Hmm?

- Yes. Mm-hmm.
- Yes?

[CHUCKLES]

Thank you.
Thank you, Johnston!

Yes, I'm definitely excited.

Hey!

Johnston called.
He said the contract is ready

for our design and
engineering partnership.

Remember that?

Dave, it's finally happening!

[BECCA EXHALES DEEPLY]

Hey.

Dave.

Yeah, I heard you.

The contract is ready.

We have business
partners now.

All we have to do is decide
when we'll return to the US

for the signing.

Becca, can you…

Can you let me
think this through?

I thought we both wanted this.

Yeah, I--

I just need time
to think about it.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

- [CHERRY] Happy Birthday, Pa!
- [EBS CHUCKLES]

Happy Birthday, my love!

[SMOOCHES]

How's your celebration
up there?

Are you having a good time?

Or do you miss my body? [LAUGHS]

- Auntie!
- I'm just kidding.

[BOTH CHUCKLING]

Happy Birthday, sir.

Thanks to you,
I have Cherry in my life.

[CHUCKLES]

By the way, Pa,

I saw you in my
dream last night.

[MELANCHOLIC MUSIC PLAYING]

What were you
trying to tell me?

How do you want me
to help you?

[MELANCHOLIC MUSIC CONTINUES]

[DAGAY] Oh, Sir Dave.

Nanny Dagay. What is it?

I saw this among
Sir Drew's things earlier.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Excuse me, Sir Dave.

Hey, Dave.

You want a sandwich?

What's this?

Answer me.

[DAVE BREATHING HEAVILY]

No idea.

Don't fool me.

Fine. It's mine.

Have you learned nothing
from what happened?!

Huh?!

I'm not doing drugs, Dave!

[DREW BREATHING HEAVILY]

That better be true.

Because I don't know
what I might do to you

if you cause another problem.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

[BRIGHT MUSIC PLAYING]

Thirty minutes left
before we reach the campsite!

Thirty minutes? My feet hurt!

I can get there in 20 minutes.

Someone's feeling competitive.

Alright!

Babe, could you help me?

Look how sweet
Cherry and Paco are.

They still act like newlyweds.

Well, that's because
they still love each other.

Well, don't we?

Ouch! Ow!

Becca?

Becca! Babe!

- Becca?
- Help.

- [PANTING]
- Are you okay?

Yeah.

I just tripped.

I tripped over something.

You go ahead, Dave.

- Huh?
- You go ahead.

Be careful.

- You okay?
- Mm-hmm.

[DAVE GRUNTS]

Do you feel better?

Yum!

[DAVE EXHALES DEEPLY]

You're doing it wrong.

You shouldn't let it burn
for too long.

Look, it's melting. [BLOWS]

- Well…
- It's melted.

How would I know?
I don't even like marshmallows.

- Taste it.
- [COLLEEN BLOWS]

Uh…

Dave, could you roast
a hot dog for me?

Please. [GIGGLES]

Yeah, sure.

Thank you.

[EXHALES HEAVILY]

Ow. It's still sore.

[COLLEEN] Look, it's roasting.

[CHERRY] That looks good.
Can I try it?

- [EXHALES DEEPLY]
- Come on, try it.

[PACO, CHERRY LAUGH]

Love, this is too strong.

[PACO] You said
not to put too much water.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL PLAYING]

You're unbelievable, love.

I made this for you.

Didn't we promise
"for better or worse"?

[COLLEEN GIGGLING]

[PACO] You really
don't want it?

[CHERRY] Fine.

You like it toasted, right?

You try it first.

- Mm!
- [GIGGLING]

- Yummy.
- Really?

Eat it all.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL CONTINUES]

Mm-hmm.

Careful, love. It's sticky.

[COLLEEN] Look at them!

[SEB] So sweet!

[WAVES CRASHING]

[SIGHS]

Becca.

[BECCA SIGHS DEEPLY]

My head hurts.

I'm not used
to sleeping like this.

Becca, I'm saying yes.

[SOFT MUSIC PLAYING]

Huh?

To what?

The partnership with Johnston.

I'm saying yes.

[CHUCKLES] Really?

So, we're going back to the US?

Yes, just…

[INHALES DEEPLY, SIGHS SHARPLY]

Give me time to talk
to my family, okay?

[GIGGLES]

What about the ranch?

Are you going to divide it
equally among them?

[PENSIVE MUSIC PLAYING]

[WAVES CRASHING]

[UNSETTLING MUSIC PLAYING]

[UNSETTLING MUSIC CONTINUES]

[UNSETTLING MUSIC CONTINUES]

[UNSETTLING MUSIC CONTINUES]

You and I need to talk. Now.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

[SIGHS DEEPLY]

Were you peeping on my wife?!

Of course not!

I saw the way you looked at her!

- I was just standing there!
- Standing there,

watching my wife
while she's bathing!

Who are you trying
to fool, huh?!

How could you think that?!

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[PANTING]

How could I?!

I know what I saw!

[PANTING]

I didn't do anything wrong!

I saw you!

I saw the way you looked at her!

I'm warning you,
stay away from my wife.

Got it?

Stay the hell away from her!

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[DAVE EXHALES DEEPLY]

Now that everyone's here,
we can start.

After much consideration,
I've finally reached a decision.

I know you've been
waiting for this.

After consulting
our family lawyer,

I've decided to remove myself
from the ranch.

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

Hmm…

Really?

So…

Who are you giving it to?

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC CONTINUES]

The whole ranch…

will be turned over…

…to Cherry Red Estrella.

[DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYING]

No!

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

I can't accept this.

Cherry, there's nothing
you can do about it.

Cuatro Estrella is already
under your name.

What the hell is this?!

She deserves the land!

What makes you say so?!

- Let's go, Seb!
- Colleen.

I had nothing to do with this!

Not now, Cherry.
Let's go, Seb.

We're leaving!
Let's go!

Stop pushing me!

I'm still trying to make sense
of what's happening!

This family is treating us
like trash!

- That's what's happening!
- That's not true!

- Let's go, Seb!
- We need to talk!

Let's go, love.

Let's go!

Wait, love. We need
to talk about this, Dave!

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SOBS]

What the hell is going on?!

Dave!

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

- [ENGINE REVVING]
- [TIRES SCREECHING]

Damn you!

Damn you, Dave! You bastard!

[EXHALES SHARPLY] Damn you.

[BREATHING HEAVILY]

[GRUNTS]

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Dave!

Talk to me!

Dave!

What?!

Why did you do that?! Tell me!

Isn't this what you want?

To do what's good
for the family?

How is this good
for the family?!

The four of you
are fighting!

Believe me, this is all
for everyone's good.

None of them deserve the ranch.

Drew is still messed up,
Seb doesn't care,

and Paco's a jerk!

You're the only one
deserving of it.

That's not true!

Why me?!

Why did you drag me into this?!

I know that you will take
good care of the ranch.

- Okay?
- No! That's not

a good enough reason!

Stop arguing with me.

Just accept it.

I will never accept something
that's not for me.

Well, I'm telling you,

the documents are now
under your name.

So get used to it.

- [TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]
- [BREATHING HEAVILY]

I don't want it!

It's yours, Cherry.

Here.

[FOLDER SLAMS]

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Dave!

What the hell
were you thinking?!

Why did you give
the ranch to Cherry?!

Because I can't manage it.

Drew, I'm returning
to the States.

[SCOFFS] Wow. Really?!

Is that why, of all people,

you decided to turn it over
to Cherry Red?!

What's wrong with that?

Who among you three
should I have entrusted it to?

Paco--

Stop using us
as scapegoats, okay?

Just admit it.

Admit what?

That you gave her the ranch

because your conscience
is killing you.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Well?

I'm right, aren't I?

You're guilty because
of what we did to her.

And you're trying to free
yourself from that damn guilt

by giving her the only thing
we inherited from Papa.

[SIGHS SHARPLY]

Fine.

I'll admit it.

You're right.

My conscience is killing me.

This is the right thing
to do, Drew.

That way, we can somehow
make up for what we did.

You know why?

Because we're despicable.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

For crying out loud, Seb!

Aren't you going
to fight for your right?!

[COLLEEN SOBS]

What's the point?!

Dave's decision
is final, Colleen!

So, that's it?!

You're just going
to accept everything?!

There is nothing
we can do about it!

You're so weak, Seb!

Can't you just leave
me and my brothers alone?!

Stop sticking your nose
in our business!

Seb.

Don't you want us
to live better lives?

[EMOTIONAL MUSIC PLAYING]

[SLAMS WALL]

[INHALES DEEPLY,
EXHALES SHARPLY]

Paco.

Love…

He said he couldn't entrust
the ranch to anyone else.

Oh, come on!

Come on! It's because
he's still in love with you!

- Paco, that's not true!
- It is, love.

It's true. See this?

You asked me how I got this.

I lied and said I hit a branch
during our hike.

It was Dave. He did this to me.

Because I caught him
watching you.

He was lusting after you
while you were showering. I…

I wanted to kill him
then and there.

So, no matter
what he tells you,

no matter what his excuses are,

he can't hide the truth
that he wants you.

But if he does something
to you, love…

I will kill him.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Love, accepting that
would mean

that I'm willing
to let him take you from me.

If I'm wrong, you can put
a hot branding iron on my skin.

What you did made me lose

whatever respect I had
left for you as my brother.

Dave, you can't leave without
settling things with Paco.

What do I have to do
to make you stay?

You can't give me
what I want.

Try me.

How can I compete with that?

I'm not even your wife.

And now, I don't know
if I'm even your partner.

Dave just gave
everything to Cherry.

What if he tells her the truth?

Drew! Drew?

Paco, he's the reason
I'm staying here.

Maybe you want to babysit
my wife too.

She doesn't need you.

Stay away from her.
