ELIO:

We’re being called to dinner.

No answer. Elio enters Oliver's room and reaches over to the

bookshelf, takes a book from it but then drops it on the

floor. It makes a sharp clatter. Oliver is briskly awoken.

ELIO (CONT’D)

(embarrassed)

We’re being called to dinner.

Oliver looks up from his pillow scarcely knowing where he is.

OLIVER:

Later. I’ll have to pass.

(beat)

Can you make my excuses to your

mother?

Elio, backing out of the door with the book, nods that he

will. Oliver looks around for a moment.

OLIVER (CONT’D)

So, this is usually your room..

About to shut the door, ELIO nods.

OLIVER (CONT’D)

Thanks, buddy.

Oliver turns and goes back to sleep. Elio closes the door,

leaving the room in almost complete darkness.

The following day. OLIVER is coming down the stairs. Not

it, outside in the garden, he can see the family having

breakfast.

EXT. GARDEN IN FRONT OF THE KITCHEN -PERLMAN VILLA -DAY 10

The PERLMANS are eating breakfast outside, in front of the

kitchen. OLIVER comes out and sits down, watching how ELIOexpertly cracks his soft-boiled egg shell, then attempts to

do the same, but only a tiny bit of the shell is pierced, so

he pretends to busy himself with his coffee and pushes theegg in its cup away. MAFALDA asks him if he would like juice.

He says “Please”. She looks down at the discarded egg.

MAFALDA Lasci fare a me, Signore. (Let me)

She slices the top off and returns to her kitchen.

ANNELLA:

Did you recover from your trip,caro?

OLIVER:

Big time.

ELIO, who has been trying not to stare at their guest and is

concentrating on spreading honey on a piece of bread, now

lifts his head and speaks, growing unnaturally loud:
