USA, 11/10/03 - How terrible...Here's a summary [USA, 11/10/03]Author: Aleida Date: 11-10-03 15:35 PST
It started with a protest march for the right to vote that some feminists were staging. Petruchio, the main lead, is delivering a load of cheese and loses control of his horse and wagon. He ends up spilling the load of cheese all over the street. The leader of the protest group angrily tells him he ruined their demonstration for equality of the sexes and calls him a machista. Petruchio pokes fun at her and tells that men and women are different, and he can show her the difference, but it would create a scandal if her were to do so in the middle of the street. The crowd laughs at his comment. He tells her that men and women were meant to pair off with one another not and to fight each other. He’s a ladies’ man and flirts and dances with some of the ladies in the crowd.
Meanwhile, the other main lead, Catarina refuses to come downstairs to go to the boat races. She’s very temperamental and you can hear things crashing upstairs as she throws a tantrum and some dishes as well. She even threw a vase of flowers down the stairs and it came crashing down, barely missing her parents. Her father has arranged for her to meet a new possible suitor and threatens to burn all her books if she doesn’t go with them. She gives them her word that she’ll go and tells them to go on ahead without her.
Catarina has a younger sister, Bianca who in love with Heitor. Heitor is on one of the rowing teams that’s racing today. She wants to marry him but can’t because the tradition calls for the older sister (Catarina) to marry first. Bianca manages to sneak away briefly from her parents at the boat races and gives Heitor a medal on a chain for good luck. He wants a kiss for good luck and they kiss after he tells her he loves her and asks her if she loves him...she tells him she does, a lot.
The new potential suitor is looking forward to meeting Catarina. Catarina makes her grand entrance on a boat just as the race is about to begin. The new suitor helps her out of the boat and in doing so, Catarina takes his hand but twists it, making him lose his balance. Everybody laughs as he falls into the water. Then there was a scene with some guy hiring a detective to follow Petruchio and find out everything about his daily comings and goings. Apparently, Petruchio helped someone who destroyed the life of someone that this guy is close too. He tells the detective he wants to destroy Petruchio.
It ended with the rowing race. Bianca is rooting for Heitor’s team. Catarina is rooting for one of the other teams.
Chapter 2: Tuesday, 11/11/03 – Dinora (Maria Padilha) pays Heitor’s debts by selling a promissory note which Petruchio had signed. When learns he has only 10 days to settle the debt, Petruchio gets furious. Dinora then hatches a plan to marry Petruchio and Catarina. Serafim takes flowers to Catarina who receives him dressed in ragged clothes and with a crazed smile. Panic stricken, Serafim runs away from Batista’s house. Meanwhile, having never seen Catarina, Petruchio doesn’t want to marry her, but that’s what will save him from bankruptcy. In the meantime, he’s able to convince the moneylender to extend the payment of his debt. When he learns Catarina’s crazy act was just a sham, Serafim decides to woo her at whatever price. Cornelio (Ney Latorraca) is determined to introduce Catarina and Petruchio.
USA, 11/11/03 - Here's today's summary... [USA, 11/11/03] Author: Aleida Date: 11-11-03 14:05 PST
Heitor’s team won the race. Catalina and her family go home and she tells her father she purposely made Serafim fall into the water and doesn’t see why he continues to find her suitors. She says she doesn’t want them and will never get married. He responds that that he can’t have a spinster daughter, a man of his position as a banker. She tells him in no uncertain terms that there isn’t a man alive that will take her down the aisle and again picks up something off the table and throws it against the wall. Dinora (she’s Heitor’s sister) pays off Heitor’s debts...apparently he’s a gambler...by selling a promissory note which Petruchio had signed for a loan his uncle Cornelio had made him. (Cornelio is married to Dinora). Dinora wants Heitor to get his life in order and encourages him to marry Bianca because she’s rich. He tells her not to talk like that because he really loves Bianca but can’t marry her until Catarina gets married.
Petruchio comes to visit his Uncle Cornelio and asks him for some more time to pay off his loan. Dinora tells him to take it up with the moneylender because the i.o.u. is out of Cornelio’s hands. Petruchio gets highly annoyed at Dinora for having done that to him. Dinora, seeing that both Petruchio and Catalina have fiery tempers, decides they’d make a good match. She tells Cornelio she now knows what to do and is going to go to the moneylender to fix things. The next day, Petruchio gets a letter from Normando Castor, the moneylender, telling him if he doesn’t pay up his debt with interest within 10 days, they’re going to start the process to auction his farm. Petruchio goes to complain to Dinora, and she tells him he’ll have to marry someone rich with a big dowry to solve his economic problems and save his farm and that she’s found the ideal bride for him, Catalina Batista. He tells her to forget about it. Everybody knows Catalina is a fiend and besides, she’s probably uglier than the devil. Cornelio asks Petruchio if he’s ever seen Catalina, and he answers that he hasn’t nor does he want to and that marriage is only good for a woman. He adds that that’s why he’ll never get married...because woman are good for kissing and hugging and to have a your way with. Dinora asks him to leave.
Meanwhile, Catalina has dressed up in some raggedy, torn clothes and acted like a crazy woman to scare off Serafim, the suitor she dumped in the river yesterday. She again tells her parents there’s no way she’s getting married, and she’ll keep scaring off any more suitors her father brings to the house. Bianca begs Catalina to think of her because she can’t even have a boyfriend until Catalina gets married, but Catalina doesn’t even want to hear the word boyfriend mentioned. Catalina’s father goes to visit Serafim to apologize for Catalina’s behavior and tells him it was just an act, that she’s not really crazy like that. Serafim tells him he’s well aware that Batista has a spinster daughter that he’s dying to marry off and asks him what he has to offer him to take her off his hands. Batista tells him his daughter is not a sack of bananas to be negotiated over and tells him he sees he made a mistake with him and leaves.
Petruchio goes to see Nestor Castor, the moneylender, who turns out to be sympathetic to Petruchio’s plight. He agrees to visit his farm to see if it’s a good property, and if it is, he’ll agree to restructure the loan. The detective and the mystery man who hired him see Petruchio leave the moneylender’s place of business, and the man walks into the moneylender’s office and asks him about the amount of Petruchio’s debt. The moneylender tells the man that his client’s debts are confidential and orders him to leave. The guy tells him nobody turns him down and identifies himself as Joaquim Almeida Leal. He takes out wads of money and starts flinging them on the moneylender’s desk, telling him he’ll pay whatever is necessary to destroy Petruchio. The moneylender asks him to sit down and offers him water or coffee. Joaquim says he wants revenge and wants to take everything that Petruchio has away from him.
