But he's fine: really bad is the grandfather of a girl who does not give peace for the bad news. Antonio is sorry and tries to console she and offers her to exchange the medical records: so the old man, discovering to feel good, will die happy. She accepts, and at the same time falls in love with Antonio who, wanting to have fun with she, sends the clinic record in accounting, to lend him the money from the board immediately.
