These animals... you gotta take care of them... and not eat them! [Mom] You're right, son. So eat the potato and rice. [Luiz Antonio] Alright... Why are you crying? [Mom] I'm not crying... I'm just touched by you. [Luiz Antonio] I'm doing something beautiful? [Mom] Eat... No need to eat the octopus alright? [Luiz Antonio] Ok!
