One of the many things we learned from the ambitious and headstrong Bobbie Salazar in “Four Sisters and a Wedding” is that middle child syndrome is real!
Being the second of five children, Bobbie (Bea Alonzo) has always put the onus on herself to not be a burden to her family and not rely on them so much for support. And while this kind of attitude is what brought her success as a corporate communications manager in New York, it also had repercussions in her relationship with Teddie (Toni Gonzaga), Alex (Angel Locsin), Gabbie (Shaina Magdayao), and CJ (Enchong Dee).
In the end, after going back home to the Philippines and airing her grievances, Bobbie finally reconciled her innate independence and the need for connection.
Get to know more about Bobbie and the soft heart underneath her tough exterior through her best lines from “Four Sisters and a Wedding” below:
“I am a corporate communications manager. I am required to have an extensive vocabulary so I never use inane and poorly worded language like black sheep and old maid to describe the people I just met.”
“Kapag ako nagsabi, masakit. Kapag ikaw nagbiro, kahit masakit, okay lang.”
“Wala kang alam sa nararamdaman ko. So don’t give comments about my personal life because I don’t give comments about yours.”
“Hindi talino ang kulang sa’yo, Alex. Responsibilidad. At respeto sa pagkakapatid natin.”
“Ate, pamilya mo kami. Dapat kung sino man ang nakakakilala sa’yo, ‘yung totoong ikaw, dapat kami ‘yun.”
“No, Ma. I'm saying you have your favorites… and that’s okay. Kasi ang importante sa ‘kin, binuhay niyo ako. Pinakain niyo ako. Pinag-aral niyo ako. Binihisan niyo ako. Minahal niyo ako.”
“Alex, baka tama ka nga. Baka ambisyosa ako. Baka importante sa akin ‘yung career ko. Pero alam mo hindi ko lang ginawa ‘yun para sa sarili ko. I had to go there for us, for our family’s future.”
“Nagpakatatag ako. Nagpakatigas ako kasi kailangan ko. Pero hindi dahil matigas ako, wala na akong pakiramdam, na hindi na ako nasasaktan. Nasasaktan din ako.”
