La Fea 09/26/2006 Lovin' Interrupted
Julieta, Matilde, Erasmo and Tomas
Julieta pulls Erasmo away from Matilde. Matilde asks if Julieta is his secretary. She asks Matilde if her house looks like an office. Erasmo bounces back and forth between the two – not willingly. Matilde says no. Julieta says this is my house and my husband! “Your husband?” Matilde didn’t realize and she apologizes. Julieta says “Then it’s your fault!” to Erasmo. He grunts and yells about how he’s sorry (sarcastically) that he didn’t announce his whole life to Matilde like his full name, his wife’s name and that he owns a house. Matilde says she only felt something for Erasmo after Tomas said he’s marrying Lety. Julieta tells Matilde that is a lie. They’re not getting married! Matilde is upset because Tomas deceived her. Tomas goes running out the door, to go to his mom. (yeah, right!) Matilde chases him. He hides behind a brick wall. Matilde calls for him. He doesn’t know what to do. She finds him! He screams and runs off.
Julieta and Erasmo argue some more about Matilde. Julieta says she’s mad because of the lying. Erasmo says that Matilde was following. He accuses Julieta of being jealous. “Of course I am!” she tells him. “I came in and saw some woman kissing my husband.” Erasmo asks her if she honestly believes that he would change woman for a crazy chick like that. Julieta pouts and Erasmo signals for a hug. Erasmo tells Julieta that she enchants him. He loves only her.
Tomas continues to run from Matilde. He thinks that he’s escaped but we see Matilde pull him through some curtains.
Erasmo tells Julieta that he is incapable of being with anyone else. Julieta says she blindly believes in him. He asks her to forget all about Matilde. “Who?” Julieta asks. They kiss and Julieta caresses Erasmo’s face.
In two minutes, Julieta has cooked enough food for an army. Julieta states that she could do this for money. Erasmo says she doesn’t need a salary, that’s why she has a husband. It would be very helpful, Julieta tells him. Erasmo says that everything Julieta does for the family in the house is very important. Julieta agrees and says she loves to be in her home. The door bell rings. Tomas falls through the door, his hair looking worse than usual, and collapses on the couch. He’s covered in lipstick and his clothes are ripped. Erasmo and Julieta tease him while Tomas recounts his experience with Matilde.
Tomas helps Julieta unpack some more bags. She says they’re almost done. She thanks them both. Erasmo asks when Lety is coming home. Julieta says soon. Besides, she’s with Don Fernando. Erasmo says he’s going to have a talk with her when she gets home.
Tomas and Erasmo debate Lety’s ethics. Erasmo tells Tomas not to tell him how to educate (meaning manner-wise) his niña. Tomas jumps at the word niña. He doesn’t think that Erasmo realizes that Lety is not a little girl. Erasmo says she’ll always be a niña to him.
Tomas sleeps on the couch. Erasmo wants Julieta to sleep; she’s very tired. He doesn’t like her suffering stress like this. He walks over to Tomas and tells him to go home. Tomas says he needs to talk to Lety about some personal stuff. Erasmo says if Lety doesn’t come home in five minutes he’s going to get her.
Lety and Fernando
Lety and Fernando have moved on to wine in the front room. Lety says that everything is very romantic. Fernando says it’s strange, he’s never felt so content in his life. He’s in his house, listening to good music and desiring the woman who is here with me. They kiss, but the phone rings. It’s Marcia. Fernando pulls away from Lety and asks why Marcia is up so late. Marcia says she wanted to confirm that he is in his house and alone. Fernando insists that no one is there. Marcia says that he hasn’t called her once since she’s gone to Germany. He says he’s been very busy with work. Marcia says she understands, but still…
Fernando hangs up the phone. Fernando asks Lety what is wrong. Lety says “What did I tell you? Marcia’s always present.” Fernando says its five in the morning over there and he wasn’t expecting her to call. Fernando said he didn’t like denying that she was there. She’s very important to him. They kiss. We see Pilar outside Fernando’s house trying to open the window. Inside, Lety opens her eyes to see someone running by the window. Lety tells Fernando that someone is out there. He doesn’t get it at first, and asks if she’s sure. They do rock, paper, scissors (or some variation on the game) to decide who should look. Lety loses and goes to the window first. Fernando looks out the window and sees no one. Lety calls the police and tells them that someone is outside the house and she doesn’t know what they are doing out there.
Fernando comes downstairs with some golf clubs. He wants to know if she called the police. The each hold a golf club. The sit on the couch back against back to watch all the windows. Lety asks if it would be better if they leave. Fernando says no. Lety asks where they’ll go if the intruder comes in. Fernando says fine, go ahead. It takes him a moment, but he says he’ll go outside. He takes some tools from the fireplace and walks outside. Lety says she can’t leave him outside alone and runs out after him. She quietly creeps up behind him and almost gets smacked with his golf club when she says his name. Pilar is on the other side of the bush. Fernando tries whacking the bush with his golf club. Lety falls over and as Pilar peers out she falls into the yard. Pilar calls Fernando “Pavel” and Lety gets upset and tries to attack Pilar with her golf club. Fernando holds her back. He asks what she is doing there, but she doesn’t answer. He tells Pilar that he is outside practicing his golf swing. Lety asks Pilar what she’s doing outside Fernando’s house. Pilar turns the tables and asks if they’re really working this late. The police pull up to the house. Fernando tells Lety to take care of it. He goes inside and puts the tools away. He cleans up the wine and wine glasses. Lety tells the police that the call was out of confusion. They don’t seem to believe her. She tells them that she was working with her boss in the house. She points out that she’s standing next to famous model. Good night! They tell them to be careful, very careful. Pilar gets looked over and Lety just grunts out a giggle. Pilar wants to go into the house; she’s investigating Fernando’s double life. She tells Lety that she thinks Fernando is Pavel and that he changed his identity. Lety wants to know why she is always attached to crazy people.
Fernando has his laptop on the table. Pilar asks what burned. Lety says it was some papers they threw in the fireplace. Fernando and Lety pretend to talk shop. Fernando tells Pilar that she can see that he and Lety have a lot of work. Pilar looks on with a vacant face. Fernando tells her that she has to be up early for the commercial and should be resting. Don’t you guys have to be there early too? Fernando says yes, but we don’t have to look fresh and beautiful like you. Pilar moves over next to Fernando and gives her best sexy move. Lety tries to duplicate it and you can tell he prefers her, but he has to humor the model. Fernando says he’s going to the kitchen and gets up. Lety follows him. Pilar walks around the front room and looks at Marcia’s picture. She wonders who she is.
Fernando and Lety are in the kitchen and he’s mad because she won’t leave. He doesn’t understand why she’s so obsessed with him. Lety says she wants to tell him something, but he’ll get mad. She did something. She messed up. I may have told her something that made her a little curious. She grabs the knife and moves it to the counter. “By my fault, Pilar thinks that you are Pavel.” Fernando wants to know how. “I told her that you have a double life, Don Fernando.” Fernando puts his head in his hands.
Pilar goes into Fernando’s bedroom and searches his drawers for evidence of his double life.
Fernando wants to know why Lety told Pilar this. She says that Pilar was going on about him being Pavel and it was the first thing that occurred to her to say to Pilar. Fernando asks what they should do. Lety says she doesn’t know and points out that Pilar and Alicia were in the supermarket. They try to figure out what that means and what they should do. Fernando does something strange with his eyebrows while dramatic music plays in the background. Sorry, guys, I’m drawing a blank on why this one… Maybe he’s insinuating that he wants to have sex in the kitchen??
Fernando and Lety complain about their lost night. They hug, and Pilar calls for them. They quickly separate. She wants some wine.
Lety and Fernando sleep while Pilar talks about her relationship with Pavel. It was love at first site; he was like a beast. Blah, blah, blah. Lety tells Fernando they’re not going to be able to their “work” tonight. Pilar continues to talk about Pavel. Lety says she is going to leave. Fernando says that it is Pilar who will leave. Pilar says she’s not going anywhere. Lety says she’ll get a taxi, but Fernando tells her he’ll take her home. Pilar points out that this is weird. It’s a shame too, because she wanted to spend sometime with Fernando. Fernando makes a not so graceful escape. Lety tells Pilar that she’s going to tell her the truth. She picks up Marcia’s picture and tells Pilar that Fernando is going to marry her. She goes on about Marcia and the wedding. Pilar says she understands and finally walks out the door. Lety gives her directions. (She would have made a decent stewardess.) When Lety comes back there is an obvious chill in the air. Lety can’t escape the fact that Fernando is engaged to Marcia.
Outside of the house, Lety says it was better that she showed Pilar Marcia’s photo because to compete with her (Lety) would not be that difficult for Pilar. They get into Fernando’s car. Pilar honks and runs up to his car. She says again that it’s a shame that Fernando has to take Lety home. Fernando says she should be home resting. She is insulted and says she’s a professional. They should be too. Fernando is nervous about tomorrow. Lety says she needs to go home. Erasmo will be upset. Fernando and Lety make fun of Pilar’s voice some more.
Fernando opens Lety’s door in front of her house. Lety says thanks for the marvelous evening. Fernando says, no, it was a disaster. Lety says no, we were in your house together. It was great. They joke about all the things that went wrong over the course of the evening. Fernando asks Lety if she’s ever noticed how things go so well whenever they’re together. They kiss, right in front of Lety’s house. Fernando promises that next time he’ll have all the right stuff for fondue. Lety giggles. Fernando says her head can’t possibly be full of ways to cook because its full of numbers. She tells him that its actually full of thoughts of him. He looks to see if anyone is watching and gives her a kiss. They don’t really want to separate. She goes to her door, but not before stealing another kiss. I can only hope this is not the end of the romance for the next two weeks (as the show so likes to do)!
Lety walks into the house. Erasmo complains about her late entrance and about preparing food all night long. Lety wants to know why Tomas is still there. She asks if she can help Julieta with something. Erasmo checks the food and stares at Tomas. Julieta tells Lety that Tomas and Erasmo helped her a whole lot. Erasmo says he did more than Tomas including the most important part – washing the beans! Erasmo says he’ll be on location all day tomorrow helping out. Lety isn’t thrilled. Lety is worried that he’ll be bored. He says there will be too much work to be bored. Julieta and Lety tease him a little. Erasmo goes over to Tomas to wake him up. Tomas cuddles. Lety tickles his foot to wake him up. Tomas runs over to the table. He tells Lety that he brought over the serving table. He tells her that he needs to talk to her. He tells Erasmo that the door to Lety’s room will be open. Julieta asks Erasmo for more help.
Lety tells Tomas that her father’s presence is going to make the whole thing tomorrow a disaster. Lety wants to leave Tomas at the house to take care of things tomorrow. Tomas does not want to stay. This is his opportunity to be close to Alicia! She says that Alicia won’t be around. He wants to know why. “Is she sick?” Lety dramatically says that Alicia’s condition is really grave… in her brain! Really, she has to stay at Conceptos to answer the telephone. She doesn’t really want him mixing for her friends at Conceptos. “Because I’m supposed to be your boyfriend?” Ummm… yup, that’s the reason. He gives her a couple other possible reasons and then says he won’t say anything about the embargo; she gets annoyed and hits him with the teddy bear. He sits on the bed (just like Erasmo told him not to). Lety says she doesn’t want him to meet Fernando. Lety looks sad. He tells Lety that he didn’t get the kisses that he wants. She says he continues to dream; sometimes even dreams come true. Tomas smiles and says he’ll won’t go. He walks out the door. Lety stays and grabs her diary. She talks about how she can’t believe that she was at Fernando’s house. She touched heaven. The house was so beautiful, but the most beautiful thing was that she was in Fernando’s private space.
Could it be possible, is Fernando really Pavel?
Will Lety and Fernando ever get to be alone while Marcia is away?
How long until we hear Fernando say "I love you"?
I wondered if I was the only person who noticed that Julieta managed to cook several batches of dried beans in approximately the amount of time it took Fernando to take off his necktie. That must be one heck of a pressure cooker.
I thought it was funny (in last night's episode or Monday's, not sure which) that Fern remarked on what a good cook Julieta is. He's only had her cooking once and it almost landed him in the hospital. :)
I don't remember the eyebrow- wiggling - I fast-forwarded through a lot of this one. :( Maybe he had a momentary urge to kill Pilar. :)
This episode was totally depressing. Drat that Pilar. I was hopin' for some good mush. Or if they had caught Pilar snooping through the bedroom. That would have been awesome. They could have fired her and then Alicia and Yazmin could fight over the commercial some more.
Sigh, will Lety and Fernando ever be alone? By the way, what ever happened to "Super Fernando" when he was ready to throw Lety to the intruder? He is adorable anyway!
Don Fernando you are indeed your own worst enemy.
Hey Julie, I thought someone said at the first of the series, that The actresses that play Lety and Mom are really mother and daughter.
Does anyone remember that?
Well, Julie, my family is from Czechoslavakia (yes, I know it's two countries now, but not when I was born)and if my ears are correct I do believe she was speaking Czech.
