[THEME MUSIC PLAYING]

- [DREW] Hello. Come in.
- [SEB] Hello. Good afternoon.

- [SEB] Mayor.
- Seb.

- Good afternoon.
- Good afternoon.

- [DREW] Mayor.
- Drew.

Oh, where's Don Freddie?

He wasn't feeling well,

so he's going to be late.

But he's probably
on his way here now.

Hypertension, huh?

Yes, Mayor.



That's usually
the reason.

[CHUCKLES, SUCKS TEETH]

Goodness. Tsk, tsk.
Anyway, we'll go on inside.

- This way, Mayor.
- Okay, Mayor. See you inside.

[MELLOW MUSIC PLAYING]

[MAYOR] Hello, good afternoon.

[DREW BREATHES DEEPLY]

Oh, Paco's here.

Wow.

- [DREW] Looking good!
- [SEB] My man.

- What's up, guys?
- You ready, Paco?

Yeah, of course I am.

I never thought this would be
nerve-racking though.

[CHUCKLING]



Oh, come on.

Chill out, okay?

I'm sure Cherry won't be
a runaway bride or something.

- I sure hope so.
- [SEB CHUCKLES]

- [PACO] I really hope not.
- [LAUGHTER]

So?

Let's do this.

All right.

- [SEB, DREW] Let's go.
- Let's do this.

[CHUCKLING]

[MELLOW MUSIC CONTINUES]

[EXHALES SHARPLY]

Okay.

Okay, I'm done with my makeup.

Aren't you going
to get ready yet?

Here are your clothes.
You just have to wear them.

Dave, we're going to be late.

Babe, it's fine if we're late.

We're not the ones
getting married.

[BREATHES DEEPLY]

Are you coming or not?

Don't tell me
we've traveled this far

just for you
to skip the wedding.

Relax.

Don't worry,
we'll make it in time.

Okay.

I'll wait for you downstairs.

What's wrong with you?

You're acting weird.

["AKIN KA NA LANG" CONTINUES]

Who would've thought
things would end up this way?

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL PLAYING]

You and me.

The two of us.

Falling in love.

[CHUCKLES]

It would've been simpler

if it was just the two of us.

But no.

I'm getting married
to four people.

[LAUGHTER]

Four brothers that
I grew up with.

We were like a real family.

[SOBS]

You didn't treat me
differently.

We've been through
a lot together.

Yes, we have.

[SOBBING]

And after all of that,

there's one very important
thing that I learned.

I learned that
love is a choice.

That was good English, right?

[LAUGHTER]

But seriously,

you taught me that
love is a choice.

Thank you for choosing me.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL CONTINUES]

It's because I'm pretty, right?

[LAUGHTER]

[CHERRY SOBS]

You really are.

So, just like
all of our choices in life,

I promise that I'll stand by
my choice to love you.

I promise that no matter
what happens, come what may…

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL CONTINUES]

You're my choice.

I will always choose you.

It will always be you.

Only you.

I love you.

- I love you.
- [PACO] I love you more.

[INHALES DEEPLY]

Uh…

I'm sorry, love.

Okay.
[BREATH QUIVERING]

[SNIFFLES]

You know… [SNIFFLES]

Even when you're sweaty
and reeking of cow dung…

[LAUGHTER]

I knew.

I always knew that you're
the woman I'm going to marry.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL CONTINUES]

And if you are thanking me,

I would like to
thank someone for…

…for entrusting you to me.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL CONTINUES]

The Lord.

Thank you.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
BY GIGI DE LANA PLAYING]

[PRIEST]
You may now kiss the bride.

["AKIN KA NA LANG" CONTINUES]

[APPLAUSE]

["AKIN KA NA LANG" CONTINUES]

["AKIN KA NA LANG" CONTINUES]

Congratulations, son.

Thank you, Pa.

[CHERRY] Thank you, Auntie.

- Congratulations, Paco.
- Thanks.

Auntie.

- Welcome to the family.
- Thank you, Pa.

- [PACO] Bro.
- [SEB] Hey, Paco.

- [BOTH GIGGLING]
- [SEB] Finally.

Congratulations!
You look so beautiful.

Thank you.

Cherry.

- Seb.
- Congratulations.

- Thank you. [CHUCKLES]
- I love you.

Aren't we leaving yet?
I'm starving.

[PACO] Me, too.

- Same here.
- Let's go get dinner.

[SEB] Come on.

Brother.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Congratulations.

Thanks.

I'm happy for you.

Thank you.

- Congratulations, Paco.
- Thank you, Becca.

[PACO] Thank you.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

I wish you all the best,
Cherry.

Thank you.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

- [PACO] Love?
- Excuse me.

- Best wishes.
- [PACO] Mayor.

Thank you very much, Mayor.

- Congratulations.
- Thank you so much.

Thank you.

Thank you, Mayor.

You're welcome.

- Okay, closer.

[SEB] Move closer.

- [FREDDIE] Closer.
- [PHOTOGRAPHER] Move some more.

[PHOTOGRAPHER]
There, that's it. Closer.

Uh, Mr. Estrella?

[PACO, DAVE] Yes?

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Uh, which Mr. Estrella?

There are five of us here.

I'm sorry. The groom.

Can you put your arm
around the bride?

Sure.

[PHOTOGRAPHER]
That's nice. Good.

- Okay, one, two.
- [CAMERA CLICKS]

One more, guys.

["AKIN KA NA LANG"
INSTRUMENTAL CONTINUES]

Dave, are you okay?
You look upset.

Uh…

I've been feeling sick
the whole day.

- Shall we go home?
- No.

I'm okay.

Go on, eat.

Okay. Try to enjoy.

It's a happy occasion.

Look at those two.

They look so happy.

[SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]

[GLASSES CLINKING]

- [SEB] Kiss!
- [COLLEEN] Whoo!

[CLINKING CONTINUES]

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

[GUESTS CLAPPING]

I love you…

my love.

I love you, too.

[SOMBER MUSIC CONTINUES]

[EXHALES DEEPLY]

I've waited for this
for so long.

[CHUCKLES SOFTLY]

Someone's ready for action.

Well…

You know me.

I'm always ready.

Are you?

Are you sure
you won't back out?

When did I back down
from a challenge, Paco?

That's what I like.

[SENSUAL MUSIC PLAYING]

Feisty.

[SENSUAL MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SENSUAL MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SENSUAL MUSIC CONTINUES]

Are you all right?

Of course.

You seem deep in thought.

[CHUCKLES]

We would've been
someplace else by now

if only our honeymoon
hadn't been postponed.

Don't worry.

I'll finish all my pending work
at the ranch, okay?

I just have a lot of things
on my mind.

Like what?

Like how much I love you.

[GENTLE MUSIC PLAYING]

You love me?

Are you sure?

Of course, I am.

Because you love me…

How about we go…

…for another round?

[CHUCKLES, INHALES DEEPLY]

I heard you're planning
to put up

your own construction firm
in New York.

If your mind's made up,

I'd like you to share
your thoughts about the farm.

Isn't Paco the one you trust
to manage the farm?

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

-[CAROL] Don't you feel guilty?
- [FREDDIE] Why should I?

How many times
do I have to tell you

that I had nothing to do
with Heidi's death?

Nothing?!

You had their place blown up

to make it look like
an accident!

[DOOR OPENS]

Carol!

Carol!

Carol!

I'm so tired of this, Freddie!

What is it you want?

What?!

Maybe it's best if we--

If we what?

- [SNIFFLES]
- You want an annulment?

You're going to leave me?

[SIGHS]

[SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING]

Good morning, Pa.

Morning, Drew.

Last night was amazing.

You didn't even let me sleep.

Did I keep you up all night?

- [CHERRY CHUCKLES]
- What time did we sleep?

After the 15th round?

Good morning.

- Hi.
- Morning.

[EXHALES SOFTLY]
How was your sleep?

It was fine, actually.

I just couldn't sleep
right away.

Oh, maybe you experienced
first-night effect?

What's that?

What does that mean?

You have trouble sleeping
in someone else's house.

Oh, w-well…

Uh, Cherry…

It wasn't like that.

[CLICKS TONGUE]
She was just, uh…

She was up all night.

Babe! Tsk! Gosh…

Don't listen to him.
Oh my gosh.

- [CHUCKLES]
- Good morning, by the way.

- Stop it.
- Uh, love?

Come on. Let's have breakfast.

[CHERRY] Love, I cooked
something special for you.

- Wow.
- It's your favorite dish.

Thank you, love.

- It looks delicious.
- Of course, it is.

Tsk! Hey, can you pass me
the bowl of rice, babe?

- [PACO] Pa.
- [FREDDIE] Hm?

Cherry's such a good cook.

It's even better
when it's made with love.

[CHUCKLING]

[SEB] You should
take lessons from Cherry.

[SOFT MUSIC PLAYING]

Here you go.

[COLLEEN] Thank you.

[INDISTINCT CHATTER]

I know you love this dish.

You're right. It's my favorite.

You want more potatoes?

Here, babe.

Are you sure you can eat this?
Aren't you on a diet?

I don't really have a choice.

It's fine.

I'm just glad that, uh…

We're complete again.

[SOFT MUSIC CONTINUES]

Thank you.

[SMOOCH]

Um…

Babe.

I'll just make
a quick phone call.

I'll be back.

- [PACO] I'm full. Thanks, love.
- [CHERRY] You done?

Pa.

I'll continue my studies
here in the Philippines.

Can I work as an intern
at Rancho Cuatro?

I'll think about it.

[PACO] Really, Drew?

You'll let Dave go back
to the US by himself?

Yeah.

I don't think he'll mind.

[PACO] Alright.
If you want, Drew,

I'll let Cherry
show you the ropes.

She's one of the best
operations managers we have.

Oh, I'll teach you
everything I know.

I've missed having
our youngest around.

[CHERRY CHUCKLES]

No need, Cherry.

I'll mentor Drew.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Uh, Pa, regarding what
we talked about last night…

I'm going to look at the plans,
then I'll give you my input.

Okay.

Input?

On what? What is this about?

Nothing.
It's between me and Papa.

So, when are you and Becca
going back to the US?

[SEB CLEARS THROAT]

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Oh, there's cake, by the way.

I'll go get it.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Do you have any idea what
Dave and Papa talked about?

Uh, no.

Is it about the business?

I'm not sure. Maybe.

If it is, then maybe Papa
just asked him about something.

Dave's leaving next week,
anyway.

[GRUNTS SOFTLY]

[GRUNTS SOFTLY]

Tsk.

Do you want some help?

No. I've got this.

[BREATHES DEEPLY]

Aah! Ow!

- Cherry!
- Aah!

- Ow.
- Let me see.

[DAVE EXHALES SHARPLY]

[CHERRY GASPS]

[UNSETTLING MUSIC PLAYING]

[GROANS] I'll do it.

[SIGHS HEAVILY]

You should've been more careful.

Here.

Does it still hurt?

Is there a wound
that doesn't hurt?

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

I brought watermelons!

- [SEB] Watermelons? Nice!
- [COLLEEN] Perfect!

I got us a yummy dessert.

They're sweet and delicious.

Great!

- Ow…
- Love?

- What happened?
- Uh…

- The--
- How did you get this?

The knife slipped
from my hands.

- But it's nothing serious--
- The knife slipped?

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

Love, please be more careful.

- Okay? How--
- [DAVE CLEARS THROAT]

What got you all nervous
in the kitchen, Cherry?

Did you see a frog
or something?

[LAUGHTER]

Love, you need
to be more careful.

What's funny?

- [PACO] Okay?
- [SEB STIFLING LAUGHTER]

- Ow…!
- Bear with it, okay?

[PACO] How did the knife even
slip from your hands? Tsk.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

Aren't there any
earlier flights?

No, they're all fully-booked.

- [EXHALES DEEPLY]
- And, besides…

Don't you want to give me
a tour of your hometown first?

Babe, it's not that
I don't want to.

I just have a lot of
unfinished work in the US.

[SIGHS]

Okay.

Some other time, then.

- [SEB] 30 seconds left.
- [COLLEEN] Good luck!

- [PACO] 30 seconds? No way!
- [COLLEEN LAUGHS]

- What is that?
- That's it. Game over.

- One more time.
- No cheating!

- [PACO] Icebreaker? Uh…
- [COLLEEN] What is that?

[SEB] What are you doing?

[COLLEEN] You can do it, girl!

- [PACO] Heaven!
- [SEB] What was that?

[PACO] One more time!

[SEB, COLLEEN] Five, four--

- Stairs! Yes!
- Yes!

Stairs?!

- [SEB] How'd they get that?!
- [PACO] What's the score?

- [CHERRY] Stairs!
- [COLLEEN] They got lucky!

- [SEB] What's the score?
- [COLLEEN] We're losing!

- My wife's amazing.
- [COLLEEN] Look!

- 7 to 2.
- [COLLEEN] 7 to 2?!

- [PACO] Losers.
- [SEB] You just got lucky!

[SEB] We'll bounce back.

[UNSETTLING MUSIC PLAYING]

Fine.

Let's go to the beach.
Right now.

Then I'll just get my swimsuit.

- [COLLEEN] No! We're losing!
- [SEB] What's the score?

[PACO] My wife's awesome, huh?

- [PACO] 7 to 2! Beat that!
- [COLLEEN] No way!

- [SEB] Lucky guess!
- [PACO] Okay, again.

[SEB] We'll win this time.

Hi!

Hello.

We're going to the beach.
You want to come?

No, it's okay.
You and Dave enjoy.

[CHERRY] Oh, no.
Are you packing that?

Dave has a peanut allergy.

Huh? Since when?

He always eats peanuts
at my apartment in the US.

Oh.

Maybe he's no longer allergic.

Yeah.

That's what happens
to allergies, you know.

As we grow older,
we get over some of them.

So now, peanut butter
is Dave's favorite.

[TENSE MUSIC PLAYING]

You're very close to
the Estrellas, aren't you?

I just noticed. I mean…

You're close to all of them.

You obviously
missed Drew a lot.

You have fun with Seb.

Uncle Freddie trusts you so much
with the family business.

And you even know about
Dave's allergies.

- How nice.
- [CHUCKLES]

Of course.

I was like a mother to them
in the past.

Anyway, enjoy the beach.

[TENSE MUSIC CONTINUES]

[WAVES SPLASHING]

You know, I should spend
more time with Cherry Red.

Because she knows so much
about you guys.

I think she even knows about
you and your brothers' secrets.

[LAUGHS]

You know what?

I should ask her to tell me
everything about you.

Because you don't
tell me anything.

Hey, that's not true.

[WAVES SPLASHING]

Really?

So if I ask you anything,

would you tell me the truth?

What truth?

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING]

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC CONTINUES]

A corpse?

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC CONTINUES]

[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC CONTINUES]

I'll read it…

[LAUGHS]

I'll read it.

You didn't wait for me

just because your favorite
Estrella brother came back?

Cherry, promise me that
you'll look after my sons

when I'm gone.

Pa!

We can afford his treatment,

so why are you
giving up on him?!

And who's going to
take care of him?

I will!

Fine. You can be
the good son, then!

At least I was never
a drug addict like you!

- Seb!
- Seb! That's enough!

You're being too much!

Is that what everyone
think of me? An addict?

I'm sorry to say…

…your father is brain dead.
