They say bread is life. And I bake bread, bread, bread. And I sweat and shovel this stinkin' dough in and out of this hot hole in the wall, and I should be so happy! Huh, sweetie?
Aw, Johnny, you're 42 years old and she's still runnin' your life!
Chrissy, over on the wall, bring me the big knife. I want to cut my throat.
I ain't no freakin' monument to justice! I lost my hand! I lost my bride! Johnny has his hand! Johnny has his bride! You want me to take my heartache, put it away and forget?
Everything seems like nothing to me now, 'cause I want you in my bed. I don't care if I burn in hell. I don't care if you burn in hell. The past and the future is a joke to me now. I see that they're nothing. I see they ain't here. The only thing that's here is you - and me.
Johnny : In time you will see that this is the best thing.
Loretta Castorini : In time you'll drop dead and I'll come to your funeral in a red dress!
Loretta, I love you. Not like they told you love is, and I didn't know this either, but love don't make things nice - it ruins everything. It breaks your heart. It makes things a mess. We aren't here to make things perfect. The snowflakes are perfect. The stars are perfect. Not us. Not us! We are here to ruin ourselves and to break our hearts and love the wrong people and die. The storybooks are bullshit. Now I want you to come upstairs with me and get in my bed!
Birds fly to the stars - I guess...
There are three kinds of pipe. There's what you have, which is garbage - and you can see where that's gotten you. There's bronze, which is pretty good, unless something goes wrong. And something always goes wrong. Then, there's copper, which is the only pipe I use. It costs money. It costs money because it saves money.
Cosmo Castorini : Rose. Rose. Rose! Rose!
Rose : Who's dead?
I can't sleep any more. It's too much like death.
Cosmo Castorini : A man understands one day that his life is built on nothing, and that's a bad, crazy day.
Rose : Your life is not built on nothing! Ti amo.
Rose : I just want you to know no matter what you do, you're gonna die, just like everybody else.
Cosmo Castorini : Thank you, Rose.
Cosmo Castorini : What's the matter, Pop?
Old Man : I'm confused!
Rose : Are you drunk?
Loretta Castorini : No. Are YOU drunk?
Rose : No... but I have a hangover.
Old Crone : You have someone on that plane?
Loretta Castorini : Yeah, my fiancé.
Old Crone : I put a curse on that plane. My sister is on that plane. I put a curse on that plane that it's gonna explode, burn on fire and fall into the sea. Fifty years ago, she stole a man from me. S'aprese il mio uomo! Today she tells me that she never loved him, that she took him to be strong on me. Now she's going back to Sicily. Ritorna in Sicilia! I cursed her that the green Atlantic water should swallow her up!
Loretta Castorini : I don't believe in curses.
Old Crone : Eh, neither do I.
Rose : How's the mother?
Loretta Castorini : She's dying. But I could still hear her big mouth.
Rose : Do you love him, Loretta?
Loretta Castorini : Aw, ma, I love him awful.
Rose : Oh, God, that's too bad.
I looked the wrong way and I lost my hand. He could make you look the wrong way and you could lose your whole head!
I have a feeling this is going to be just delicious.
