Your Holiness, do you need anything?

My fellow Members of Parliament,

we will not be intimidated

by any last minute defectors,

who might think this ship is sinking.

Go right ahead,

but the government is strong

and I assure you

this ship will not sink.

It will not sink!

He told them this time.

He just doesn't get it.

I'd say you don't.

Excuse me.

Please, excuse me!

Great job!

Thanks to you all!

See you on Monday, don't forget.

Well done, great speech!

Cut the compliments, Malgradi,

and make our friends

at the Treasury reason.

Since you're on the committee,

talk to them yourself,

you cannot simply sit there

and second.

I'm bending over backwards

on that committee, but by now...

If we'd dumped them, the government

wouldn't be about to fall.

Enough talk,

take action!

How's it going with the amendment

on the waterfront of Ostia

to put into the Suburban Renewal Law?

About halfway,

seeing who's behind it...

They're the good ones,

here they are!

Keep up the good work, well done!

- What happened?

- We'll leave the Party.

Who'd ever thought it of you,

so straight and upright!

- You're one to preach!

- Well done, well done!

- Have you read it?

- What?

The various European statements

on us.


Ah, you speak Italian!


Going great, isn't it?

Take a break, that knock-out body

might rack-up victims.

By the way, someone's asking

for you, what do I do?

It could be good, he's organizing a

conference next year here in Rome,

I could do it myself,

if you put in a good word.

I'm already busy tonight.

- With him, like always?

- Yes.

I gotta find him a different girl

every night. He's obsessed.

Thanks to you all, good night.

- Sir, good evening!

- Good evening.

Ms. Lagarde

said Italy lacks credibility

in the announced measures,

isn't that a rejection?

No one's rejecting anyone,

let's be serious.

The opposition says

Italy is on the brink of default.

I think it's wrong to think Italy

is in a severe financial crisis,

consumer spending

hasn't decreased at all

and our lifestyle is

that of an affluent country.

We're not on the brink of any abyss.

- Thank you.

- Keep up the good work.

Goodnight, Your Holiness.


the committee will go on late,

don't wait up.

Yes, I'm a little tired,

but don't worry,

I'll see you tomorrow.


You can drop me here.

- Good evening, Mr. Malgradi.

- Hi Faisal, any news on your son?

- Not yet.

- I'm sorry.

For your trouble...

Thank you.

Have a good night.

Shut up,

you're upsetting my girlfriend.


How about this signature?

We gotta go, Aureliano!

You're wasting my time

just for a signature!

Give me that, Mirco.

What are you doing?

- How about this signature?

- Yes!

- Don't cry! Yes or no?

- Yes, I'll sign!

I'll sign, I'll sign!

Good man.

See? That didn't take much.

Don't do it. No!


C'mon, c'mon!

Let's go!

Why all these people?

The first nightclub rounds are done,

now they're going again.

- Move, think we're on vacation?

- C'mon, let's move!

- Evenin', Scab.

- I said don't call me that.

So? What are we doing here?

Tell Samurai even the guy at Traiano

says he'll sell.

My work's almost done,

you gotta have me meet him.

- You can tell me.

- You?

Who the f*ck are you?

If my dad hadn't got you votes,

you'd still be robbin' old ladies.

Your father reasoned with people.

- I'm not my father.

- I know.

In fact, you've got

more balls than brains.

Tell Samurai

I got more contracts in two months

than Dad in two years.


Bye, Scab!


He's inside.

This town's all changed,
