You're stuck on me and my laughing eyes

l can't pretend though l try to hide

l like you

l think l felt my heart skip a beat

l'm standing here and l can hardly breathe

You got me

The way you take my hand is just so sweet

And that crooked smile of yours

lt knocks me off my feet

Oh, l just can't get enough

l'm a stew

l need to fill me up

lt feels so good it must be love

lt's everything that l've been dreaming of

l give up, l give in

l let go

Let's begin

'Cause no matter what l do

My heart is filled with you

l hope we always feel this way

l know you will

And in my heart l know that

You'll always stay

This is Sophie Hall from The New Yorker.

Hi, Mr. Beal. Thank you for calling me back.

No. l'm not a writer.

l'm a fact checker, actually.

lt is a bit like being a detective, yes.

Let's see if you are the Robert Beal

that l'm looking for.

Can you confirm where you were

when you found out World War ll was over?

Poughkeepsie? All right.

Right, thank you so much.

Yes, the moment the war ended.

Palm Beach? Okay. Lucky guy.

Thank you very much. Bye.

Bobby, hey, l got nothing,

but there's two more Robert Beals,

and one petty officer, third class.


l'm gonna call you back.

Sophie Hall.

Can you confirm where you were

when you found out World War ll was over?

Times Square?

l'm in Times Square right now.

l'm standing exactly

where the photograph was taken.

l really thought l would never find you.

So, can you... Can l ask you to describe

what you saw that day?

The kiss,

was it spontaneous or was it staged?

lt was.

You're certain?

So you're 1 00% positive?

Petty Officer First Class Robert Beal,

who was the second sailor,

said that the nurse was the bee's knees

and that the kiss was

a completely spontaneous moment

and a celebration of real love.

-And he told you this himself?

-Yes, he did.

'Cause it's not often that l request

a personal audience with a fact checker.

lt's 'cause l need to know you're sure.

l'm 1 00% positive.


l guess people wanna believe in true love,

don't they?

Speaking of which, l understand

that you're headed off to Verona

for a pre-honeymoon?

Explain that to me.

lt's just a vacation before the wedding.

lt's our last chance to spend time alone

-before his restaurant...

-Well, it's the city of love, isn't it?

Yeah. But l...

Good choice, and good work. Thank you.

l was thinking. What if while l'm there,

l write?

But you're such a good fact checker.

-Have a great trip.

-Thank you. See you later.

Who goes on a honeymoon

without a wedding? You are so lucky.

Well, Victor's restaurant opens

in six weeks, so it's our last chance.

Okay, do not let him pay attention

to anything but you, okay?

-You throw his cell phone in the Adriatic.

-But he has to meet suppliers.


-lt's fine. l promise.

Okay. Wait, what?

Hey, sweetheart,

can l help you carry your magazine?

Okay, no problem.

Oh, my God.

Hey, close your eyes.

Close your eyes, close your eyes.

Close your eyes, close your eyes.

Close your eyes. Open your mouth.

-lt's good?


Yes? No? Yes?

Yes? l have reinvented the noodle,

l'm telling you.

Just try this one

because this one's really good.

lt's the same thing, but different. Fatter.


-More of, you know... No?

-lt's good, right? Yeah?


You know, l mean, modestly speaking,

l think l'm creating a masterpiece.

l don't know. l mean, there's one

that just came out perfect right now,

-which is... l think it's this one. l think it's...


-Try it. Even though it's dry, try it.

-Victor, Victor...
