His Excellency S. De Carolis

took part in thejump through the hoop.

What a man.

Sons of the she-wolf flocked

to the beaches of Rome where Italians...

and their automobiles paraded

to the songs of the revolution...

followed by a box lunch

which included bread...

famous national cheeses

and piping red tea.

the magnificent

stone walls of the Pitti Palace...

seem to smile beneath

the warm, spring sunshine.

This lady was the wife

of the local druggist.

Everyone said

she was worse than Messalina.

And no need to play with yourself.

That's what's nice about Rome.

It's big and nobody knows you.

You are free to come and go.

What about the Roman women?

What are they like?

The Roman women?

They've got an ass as wide as that.

Quit fucking around

and get out of my way.

Don't worry. I'm going.

Get your lottery tickets here.

- Hey, kid, need a lighter?

- No, thanks. I've already got one.

I'll give you, as a present,

a bolt of first-class English wool.

- Got a place to sleep tonight?

- In Via Albalonga.

I have a room with your own entrance

and a cute little French girl.


Hotel Dragoni.

Hotel Dragoni!

Veal at four lire a pound.

What's this world coming to?

There's only two things

you can be sure of.

That's right.

Death and taxes.

- I'm looking for the Palletta family.

- Fourth floor.

The elevator's broken.

David, I'm gonna beat

the hell outta you.

There, stupid!

You always do it wrong.

Where can I find

the Palletta family?

Thank you.

He says to me, "You kidding me

or are you really stupid?"

"What do you mean?"

And he says, "Aw, come on. You must

be kidding. " I say, "What do you mean?"

- So?

- What do you mean, so?

The solemn military and religious rites

at the tomb of the unknown.

I'm gonna throw the cat
