What can I do to make you stay?


- You're the light of my eyes.

- Oh!

I bet you say that to all the girls.

Normally I talk about the shiny

hair or... something like that.

...I don't wanna go home.

Then don't.

I'm starting uni, real life.

But we can make it work. I'll...

Taylor, this is real life.

I love you.

Business or holiday?





If we took a holiday

Took some time to celebrate

Just one day out of life

It would be

It would be so nice

Everybody spread the word

We're gonna have a celebration

All across the world

In every nation

It's time for the good times

Forget about the bad times

One day to come together

To release the pressure

We need a holiday

If we took a holiday


Took some time to celebrate

Come on and celebrate

Just one day out of life

One day out of life

It would be

It would be so nice

Holiday, holiday, holiday

Celebrate, brate, brate, brate

Holiday, day, day, day


We need a holiday


Holiday, celebration


Come together in every nation


Holiday, celebration


Come together in every nation


Your first time in Puglia?

No, I was here three years ago.

We need a holiday


T-bag is here!

It's so good to see you.

My little pupalina.

- Ah! Grazie mille.

- Prego.

Come on!

So... how was the flight?

How were the exams?

Is it raining in England? Tell me

it's raining. It's raining, isn't it?

- This place is...

- Wait till you see the inside. Come on!

Oh, my God!

It's not quite the pensione

I recommended.

Isn't it heaven?


- How are you?

- Fabulous!

- Really?

- Uh-huh.

- What's on your iPod?

- Er... I don't know.

But I can tell you it would not

be "Nothing Compares To You".

Don't tell me you're

actually over Doug?

Doug who? This is the best

holiday ever. I'm in love.

- Puglia's beautiful, isn't it?

- Uh-huh.

I knew you'd love it.

Thanks for flying me out.

Hey, I wanted to celebrate

your graduation.

Congratulations on being officially

the clever one, by the way.

Thank you. You'll always

be better at ballet.

Hmm... true. So bringing you

here was surprise number one.

- Are you decent?

- Who, me?


Oh, my God!

My little professor.

Maddie never said you'd be here.

Oh, well, when she told me

Doug had dumped her,

I was like, "Yes,

hallelujah, man-tox time!"

And is there a better way

to spend my book advance?

- Tiziana.

- Eh?

More Aperol Spritz, please?


- And a glass for you.

- Per me?

- She's a bit grumpy.

- Nice Italian, though.

Oh, she has got very familiar

with the Italian tongue.

So tell her.

I'm getting married.

Sorry, I thought you said

you were getting married.

Isn't it amazing?

- Oh, my God! Not to Doug?

- Oh, God, no!

But... you're on man-tox.

You're supposed to be finding yourself.

Well, I did. Here I am.

And there he was, so there we are.

Are you crazy? How long

have you known this guy?

Five weeks, but it's enough.

When you know, you know, you know?

You said that about Doug...

and Marcel and Connor.

And Tarquin.

This is different, he's...

sensitive and kind and gentle.

- Definitely not Doug, then.

- He's just the most wonderful thing...

- Grazie.

- Prego.

At least tell me it's

a long engagement.

That's why I had to get you here.

The wedding is in two days.

- That is insane.

- I know!

- Don't look at me. Puglia was your idea.

- I don't remember telling her to...

marry the first man she found

when she got out of the taxi.

He's wasn't the first man.

He was, like, at least the fourth.
