Angelo Barberini: (explaining his history) After many unsuccessful attempts, they gave up on having a family. Then, after what my mother calls... Maria Barberini: (cut to Maria ironing) What your father did to me while I was sleeping. Angelo Barberini: Along came my sister Angela.
Angelo Barberini: Before I go, there is one last thing I want to do. (Pulls an handful of Pina's hair) Angelo Barberini: God help us, it's real!
Pina: (after discussing Nino's past with Angelo) Now can we please change the subject? Mélanie: Ok. But if he ever asks you to strap on a dildo... Pina: (giggling) Stop it! Mélanie: Call me. I have quite a collection.
Nino Paventi: How'd you get in here? The door was locked, the alarm system was on... Lina Paventi: Nino, I'm Sicilian.
Pina: Me, I can convert anybody. Give me an hour in the Gay Village and there's not gonna be a Gay Village no more! Hai capito?
Peter: Angelo, if you can't have compassion for yourself, how you gonna have it for others?
Angelo Barberini: (after asking if he should tell their parents he's gay and she tries to talk him out of it) So you think this will kill them?
Anna: Yeah, it will kill them.
Anna: (suddenly realizes what she's saying) Tell them!
Lina Paventi: What you are saying is that my Nino is banging your Angelo?
Gino Barberini: No. I'm saying it's the other way around!
Angelo Barberini: Dear Nino, this is the only way I can think of that I might be able to reach you. So I ask you: Please read this through before closing your mind, before shutting me out forever. Keeping my love for you a secret from the world seemed like a betrayal of that love. Now I know that I don't need anyone else to know about us. We are in love and even if a closet must protect our love it will never contain. I would do anything to make things right again. There is no one if there isn't you, Nino. When you left, everything stopped making sense. I love you, Nino, and I can't bear to be without you. Your Angelo.
Angelo Barberini: (a customer is in New Glasgow, Canada instead of Glasgow, Scotland) New Glasgow has waterslides. Those are fun.
Angelo: Are you okay?
Anna: I will be once the Valium kicks in.
Angelo: Being gay and Italian is a fate worse than... actually there is no fate worse than being gay and Italian.
Anna: (on the phone with Nino) Nino, it's Anna. My mom just told your mom... head for the hills!
Gino Barberini: (Angelo is taking his parents to his new apartment that's in an old building) What's so charming about being old? We're old.
Maria Barberini: We're not charming.
Gino Barberini: What can I get for you?
Lina Paventi: My husband has been dead for eighteen years. What I need you can't offer cause you're married.
Gino Barberini: We make special arrangement. What do you say Maria, we help out a friend?
Maria Barberini: (looks at him reproachfully, then turns to Lina) You're better off with your memories.
