SENATE PRESIDENT Franklin Drilon has agreed to sign the subpoena for Janet Lim-Napoles. The suspected pork barrel scam queen will be required to appear before the Senate soon. Analysts believe that day will be significant, historic, and extremely awkward.
Yes your honor.
Well, nakikinig kaming lahat. Go ahead.
Para po sa inyo ito your honor…
“Hello darkness my old friend…
I’ve come to talk with you again…”

You are under oath Mrs. Napoles. Tandaan mo ‘yan.

Drilon and Napoles
Isang tanong, isang sagot: may bahagi ba ng PDAF ko ang
Gano’n? Diretso po agad sa tanong your honor? ‘Di ba pwedeng pleasantries muna? Kumusta na po si Ma’am Mila?
Sandali lang naman Manong Frank. ‘Di naman kayo ganyan ‘pag nasa parties namin ah. Thank you.
Lito Lapid and Napoles
Mrs. Napoles, gusto kong sabihin mo mismo sa harap ng publiko: tayo ba ay nagkaroon ng anumang transaksyong may kaugnayan sa pork barrel?
Wala po your honor!
Magaling! Salamat Mrs. Napoles!
Paanong magkakaroon eh ibinigay mong lahat ang PDAF mo kay Mrs. Victoria Sevilla Tolentino ng Innsbruck International Trading! Madamot ka your honor! Tse!
Ah, Mr. Chair, may I request that my question as well as Mrs. Napoles’s answer be stricken from the Senate record? Pwede po ba Mrs. Napoles?
Sige your honor. Pero spell ‘stricken’ muna. Thank you.
Enrile and Napoles
Mrs. Napoles, kilala mo ba ang dati kong chief of staff na si Gigi Reyes?
Mas kilala n’yo po siya.
Totoo bang madalas kayong magkita?
Hindi po kasindalas ng inyong pagkikita.
Malaki ba ang ibinigay mo sa kanya?
Bakit po? ‘Yon bang sa inyo maliit?
Kayo ba ay may mga ginawang kaduda-duda?
Mas kaduda-duda po ang ginawa n’yong dalawa. Thank you.

“Well, I fell in love. May kasabihan tayo, may batas ng tao, may batas ng puso, may batas ng Diyos. Then kung sa batas ng tao nagkamali ako then I will admit it but the difference about this is I fell in love and when I found out that she was a minor, the first thing I did was to notify the parents because I know na hindi tama. But for me to back out, we are already in love. I think it’s more damaging to her if I back out now. I didn’t ask her to choose,”
