Mystic Pizza

- Trs Mulheres, Trs Amores -

Oh, God.

Be seated.

We're gathered here to witness and bless

the joining together forever of William

and Josephina in Christian marriage.

The firm covenant of marriage

is permanent in this lifetime,

because it was established by God.

And once entered into,

it may never be broken

without risk of eternal damnation.

So I ask you now, in the presence

of God, family and friends,

to declare your intentions to enter

a permanent union with one another

for as long as you both

shall draw breath on this earth.

- Josephina.

- Jo!

Jesus Christ. Jojo!

- Hey, look out.

- Think I got eyes in my butt?

That's where your brains are.

- Daisy!

- Yeah.

Think we might get that pizza served

while it's still hot?

I think maybe.

Mr Lopes left his teeth again.

I need a coffee cup, Manny.

Jesus Christ! These shoes are killing me.

Corns at 20. Can you believe it?

Come on. D'you have to talk that way?

- Yeah, Dais. Watch your mouth.

- Oh, excuse me, Holy Mother.

What I meant to say was,

these f***ing shoes are killing me.

Put a lid on it, Daisy.

Thank you.


Excuse me. May I have my coffee now?

Jo, what are you doing here?

I am getting out of that house.

My father just put himself 5,000 bucks in

the hole to watch his daughter pass out.

- He is just a little pissed off.

- I thought it was pretty funny.

- Daisy! Hey, Jo.

- Hi.

Well, it was a first for St Mary's, anyway.

I saw myself ten years from now.

Fat and ugly, and all these kids

swarming around me,

and then I was picking

fish scales out of Bill's boot.

Sounds about on target.

- But I did do the right thing, didn't I?

- Sure.

Jo, the only reason to get married

is to get the hell out of Mystic.

- How's Bill taking it?

- He's still not talking to me.

- Get ready to talk, Jo.

- Hey, check it out.

- Only kidding, man.

- Shut up, you a**hole!

Come on, Bill.

Let's go outside and talk, OK?

Please. Bill, please.

I wanna talk to you. Let's just go outside.


- So what happened, Jo?

- I don't know.

I just, you know...

I just... When I actually

got up there to do it,

I just couldn't, Bill. I just couldn't.

Bill, it's not that I don't love you.

Because I do, Bill.

I really, really, really do.

You know, I walk into this place,

and everybody stares at me.

Let 'em stare.

- Are you OK?

- Yeah.

- And everything's better now?

- Yeah.

So how does November 21st sound?

I don't know. Let's just talk about it later.

- Kiss Mom for me.

- No. I'll be late for my interview.

- Well, then you better hurry.

- I've been three times this week already.

Well, Kat... four, and you go to heaven.

"Kat's such a good girl."

"Where did we go wrong

with her sister Daisy?"

Honey, you'd do just fine

if you just used your head a little more.

Yeah, well, don't worry about me.

I'm not gonna be slingin' pizza

for the rest of my life.

The best pizza.

Hey, Ma. Sausage today.

Oh, great! Ladies, we're gonna eat

soon as we finish this tote.

Hey, Kat. Come on, sit down. Have some.

No, I gotta go.

I got an interview out on Shore Road.

- Another job?

- Yeah, baby-sitting.

You do too much.

Kat's got four jobs already.

- I need the money.

- Kat's been accepted to Yale University.

She got a scholarship

and she's startin' in February.

A part-scholarship.

So you got a boyfriend yet?

Got no time for boys.

Kat, I got a great idea.

Hey, Silvio! You got a job

for my smart kid?

- Terrific, Ma. Bye.

- Bye, honey. Thanks for the pizza.

Where does she get her energy?

All those jobs, and a straight-A student...
