- Buongiorno.

- Buongiorno.

I was here a little while ago.

I'd like to stay in the same room, please.

Do you speak English?

No. Not enough.

I was here a little while ago,

and I was hoping I could get

the same room upstairs, please.

Buongiorno.

Welcome back.

- Thank you. Thank you.

- Remember me? Fillipo.

- Of course, yes.

- You are...?

- Lee.

- Lee.

- Yes.

- Welcome back.

Thank you. I was here...

the last time I was here,

I wanted to stay in

the same room upstairs.

- No problem.

- It's 245.

245. No problem.

The corner room... very nice.

Thank you.

- It's all yours.

- Thank you.

Give me the passport and I'll

take care of everything else.

There you go. Thank you.

Is there anything else I can

do while you're staying here?

Do you think I could have

one cigarette, please? Just one?

- It's...

- Oh, yeah.

- Thank you.

- Of course.

Very much.

F*ck.

- Right.

- Morning or afternoon flight?

- I guess the afternoon flight.

- I'm booking it now.

- I need you back here.

- I know. I really do. I get it.

Well, then turn on your damn cellphone

and pick it up when I call you.

- I...

- You can't just disappear.

I know. And I want to talk to you. I do.

I'm not trying to scold you, Lee,

but we've been worried sick.

Tell me how you're doing.

Well, you know... Okay. I'm just...

I know you're not okay. Talk to me, Lee.

It's just so f*cked up and it's just

so weird, you know? It's f*cking weird.

Yeah. I'm sorry, Lee.

- Yeah. Thanks.

- I'm really sorry. I really...

How is everybody?

Everybody's in pretty

rough shape, to tell the truth.

Yeah.

And you know nobody can

hold their liquor around here,

not like you and I can, anyway. So...

Lee, nobody knows better than

me how much Mark meant to you

and how much the two of

you went through together.

You cannot be alone right now.

Mark's memorial service is on Thursday.

Get on that flight tomorrow,

come back here, and we'll get through this.

I'll call you back with

your flight info, okay?

- Lee?

- Yeah.

- Go to Albert's and stay with him tonight.

- Okay, I will.

Tell everybody I said hi, okay?

No, I'll just tell them

you're coming home.

- We love you, Lee.

- Okay, thanks. Bye.

Grazie.

Excuse me.

Buongiorno!

Yeah, I like it.

- Very best quality, good price.

- Oh, no. I can't. I can't.

- I give you a good price.

- I can't. I'm just walking. I'm... no car.

- Where you live? I bring to you.

- New York.

You walk from New York?

See, bring back the carpet to

New York and you think about me.

My name's Lee. Lee.

- It's a beautiful name.

- Thank you. Thank you.

- Nice to meet you. I am Wejdi.

- Wejdi.

- Where are you from, Wejdi?

- Tunisia.

Yeah.

I have more of my carpet

at home, even more beautiful.

No, I can't carry it.

I don't... I... I can't.

- Put your suitcase.

- No. I don't have a suitcase.

- I give you one.

- I don't want a suitcase, thank you.

Beautiful.

Yeah, yeah. Is your family

here or are they in Tunisia?

- In Tunisia.

- Oh. So it's just you?

- Yes. Myself. Just you?

- Yes.

You are beautiful and you

travel alone, no man?

No. Too many men.

Many men. Where are the men?

Show me. Where are the men?

Everywhere.

All right.

Five minutes.

Could I talk to your supervisor?

Okay. I'll come back with my documents.

Signorina, polizia.

- What?

- Bag.

Yeah.

- A camera?

- It's a camera, yes.

Yes, I'm just photographing. Yes.

I don't... I-I'm taking photographs

of a field, for trees.

Okay.

That's it. This. That.

No.

- I...

- No photo.

This is just personal photos for me.

Signorina, signorina...
