some don't...

What's this way of thinking?

What do you mean?

You notice anything?

Your tangerine hair piece.

Can't even tell the color.

Never mind the hair.

We're talking about marriage...

Oh God, you're not serious!

Yes, I am.

You are!


Who's here?

Who is it?

Here I am, sweets.

Come, honey.

- You're speaking?

- Moldavian.

My wife's language.

Here she is. Meet Olga.

A pleasure.

I'm so glad to meet you.

Your father

always talks about you.

You, son priest?

Yes, me son priest.

When did you get married?

A miraculous encounter!

See how I've changed?

Olga put me on a diet,

we're taking dancing lessons,

I feel like a young man.

Get changed, Olga,

let's show him the mambo.

Right away, darling.

Can I have a word with you?

I don't get it...

- Isn't she the minder?

- Her name is Olga!

Her name's Olga, fine.

Problems with immigrants?

Problems with immigrants?

With the job I do?

Out of curiosity,

what do Luigi and Bea think?

Leave them out!

I have to say something though.

It was full of poor Mom's photos here,

now it's full of photos

of you and the minder...


Sorry, Olga.

Anyway... never mind.

We're above all this.

Yes, we are.


Hey, Uncle...

Come in, Mom's almost done

with her session.

How are you?

You've really changed.

From this...

to this!

What's this look?

The Emo look.

What's that?

- Where do you live?

- In Africa!

Mom said to wait in there.

This is Aida, my best friend.

Is she asleep?

She's suffering.

So she's...

- She's an Emo too?

- Of course.

- What does Emo mean?

- Well...

We Emos

experience feelings in full.

We like to experience

sadness and melancholia.

And even depression.

We feel more than others.

What others?

Don't be aggressive, Uncle.
