They're waitin' for us, Big Max!

You can't catch me.

Hey Unc, he's comin'!

- You're still not ready?

- We're done.

The baglady again?

It's no good?

You've done it 30,000 times.

Do somethin' else.

I've done it lots,

and you always laughed.

We were in stitches at

Aunt Nunziata's birthday party too.

But do somethin' happier.

The baglady's no good anymore?

You're a riot,

we'll love whatever you do.

You rock!

I'm goin' down,

he's already here, move.

Your attention, please,

we're getting ready.

And now, the big moment...

The moment

we've all been waiting for!

Every woman's dream is here.

He lasted 116 days

in the Big Brother House!

He made the finals, and found

his America right here in Italy!

A big welcome to Enzo!

Keep up the applause

for the bride and groom!

Isn't she the most

beautiful bride in the world?

Tell me she's the most

beautiful bride in the world!

Today these kids have crowned

their dream of love.

Like me, when I left home

a long time ago.

My dream came true

and I hope yours do too.

Hold on to your dreams!

Never give up!

You're the best!

Enzo, my love!

Just look, what a chest!

What muscles!

You had hair when

we split up, now it's gone!

I know, it's your brains,

Honey, tell 'em about

when we were together?

Right, you're...

Now I have a steady girlfriend,

not with the same girl now.

- I'll never leave you.

- Give him a big hand I.

You're such a hunk.

What a hunk!

You gotta go on TV,

Luciano my boy.

What's wrong, sweetie?

She wanted Enzo's autograph.

She'll be mopin' all night...

Don't worry, want a photo?

Papa will get you one.

A big hand for the bride and groom!

Look at this beautiful bride.

She's the most beautiful bride

in the world!

Throw your hats in the air, c'mon!

You too down there, everybody!

Be happy,

these kids really deserve it.

Hold on to your dreams!

Could I get a picture of you

and my daughter?

Come on, sweetie, fast.

Like this?

This side here, right?

- How do I turn it on?

- Quick, please.

Your little finger like this.

Look how nice!

- How do I rewind?

- Okay, all set?

Want one too?

- Quick, we're in a rush.

- Take it, honey.


- Where's he going?

- Home.

Where's his house?

- Far away?

- I don't know.

What do you want to tell us?

Can we give you

a good night kiss?

We gotta get an elevator in here.

An elevator! We could croak.

Faster, nephew, I can't stand this.

I got pains in my shoulder,

in my back.

Uncle, stop complainin'.

I'll drop you right here,

if you keep yakking.

What a racket climbin' these stairs,

you sound like

you carried Uncle yourselves.

- We're not so young, you know.

- Night, Luciano.

Maria, it's great.

- Like it?

- Yeah.

My daughter has one too.

It does everything.

Pasta, sauce...

It's great, really handy.

Maybe you'll buy one for yourself.

Wish I could,

I like it, it's really great.

Maria, wait,

there's this poor old soul.

- Not this month.

- Just one sec.


I brought you Maria.

Go see Luciano at the fish stand

and get on the list.

Wait, how long's the list?

- Not long, he's first.

- He's really hurtin'.

Don't worry.

- Mrs. De Rosa?

- Teresa, they're callin' you.

Yeah, I heard.

- Nothin' yet.

- What?

Carlo, Ma's goin' out, lock the door

and don't let anyone in.

Everybody else got theirs,

I'm surprised you didn't.

Dunno, I never got it.

But Michele explained

once the deposit's sent in,

the robot comes automatically.

If it came, think I wouldn't say?

I almost called you this morning,

'cause I need the money.

And how! It's 100 euro!

Okay, but maybe you gave the

wrong address or you weren't home?

No wrong address.

Gotta run, I'm in a rush.

Mrs. De Rosa!

This is yours?

No, I saw you, ma'am.

Let me serve this lady here first.

One kilo.

Michele, see what Dora wants.

Half a kilo of shrimp for Filomena.

Hello everyone, hi Michele.

Here's yours

and this is for that lady there.

You can pay Michele.

Mrs. De Rosa didn't give me hers.

- What!

- They all gave me theirs.

Except Mrs. De Rosa.

They delivered them all except hers?

The guy's coming for them,

see what you can do.

Michele, get that 10 euro there!

Come here.

Sure, ma'am, don't worry.

Mrs. De Rosa didn't give us hers.

- How come?

- She's someone you brought.

That's strange, she's trustworthy.

Hello, Ma'am,

could we talk a minute?

Just for a minute.

Excuse me.

How come your robot

hasn't come yet?

Sonny, what can I say,

they made a mistake.

The courier says he delivered it.

They must have got mixed up.

- She says they got mixed up.

- Yeah, right.

- I say she's telling the truth.

- I don't believe her.

Have a little faith.

You got your robot too,

the courier delivered to everybody

so you have yours.

They probably

had the wrong address.

My cousin's sure,

so how can we resolve this?

When they bring it...

Do you have this robot

or did you sell it?

When they bring it to me,

I'll bring it to you.

Ma'am, you already have it.

Don't play dumb.

Okay, so let's go

to your house and see.

- We won't find a thing!

- Let's go see.

There's no point.

Got a guilty conscience?

If you have nothing to hide,

humor him.

Let's go outside and talk.

We'll talk outside

and then we'll go see.

Get her outside.

Maybe it's best.

We'll talk it over outside.

Please, do me this favor.

You're making a ruckus,

I'm friggin' fed up.
