“Sometimes I’m terrified of my heart; of its constant hunger for whatever it is it wants. The way it stops and starts.”
- Edgar Allan Poe
Luca Spaghetti: ”Americans. You work too hard, you get burned out, you come home and spend the whole weekend in your pajamas in front of the T.V.”
Liz: "That’s not far off, actually."
Luca Spaghetti: ”But you don’t know pleasure. You have to be told you’ve earned it. You see a commercial that says: ‘It’s Miller Time!’ And you say, That’s right, now I’m going to buy a six pack. And then drink the whole thing and wake up the next morning and you feel terrible. But an Italian doesn’t need to be told. He walks by a sign that says: You deserve a break today. And he says, Yes, I know. That’s why I’m planning on taking a break at noon to go over to your house and sleep…with your wife!”
Giovanni: ”We call it “dolce far niente”, the sweetness of doing nothing.”
