Mae Jenkins: [Looking indifferently at the leaning tower of Pisa] So it leans. So a lot of things lean.
Paolo Maltese: [Turning to Mae] You ever heard of Galileo, maybe?
Mae Jenkins: Sure I have heard of Galileo.
Paolo Maltese: [Turning to Joey] She ever heard of Galileo?
Joey Friedlander: Nah...
Paolo Maltese: Five-six hundred years ago, this Galileo dropped two stones off that tower, one big one, and one little one.
Mae Jenkins: So?
Paolo Maltese: So he proved the law of gravity or somethin'. I don't know.
Mae Jenkins: And brained a couple of citizens, maybe. Big deal.
Paolo Maltese: [Pointing at the Cathedral of Pisa with pride] Look at it.
Mae Jenkins: What is it?
Paolo Maltese: The Cathedral. That is the most beautiful and the most famous cathedral in the whole world.
Mae Jenkins: Yeah, it's got too many pillars.
Paolo Maltese: Too many pillars...
Mae Jenkins: Yeah.
Paolo Maltese: Listen to me. That is the most beautiful and the most famous cathedral in the whole WORLD.
Mae Jenkins: It's got too many pillars!
Paolo Maltese: It was built in 1050!
Mae Jenkins: Yeah, so in 1050 they put in too many pillars!
Paolo Maltese: [Turning toward the Baptistery] This over here is the Baptistery. From all over the world...
Mae Jenkins: Oh well.
[and walks away]
Paolo Maltese: [Catches up with her, exasperated] Listen. THAT is the Baptistery. From all over the world people are coming here everyday just to look at it.
Mae Jenkins: Well, I guess they just must like baptisteries.
Paolo Maltese: [Turning to Joey] Without exception, Joey, without challenge from anyone anywhere, this is the most stupidest, the most unfeelingest, the most uncooperative broad in the whole planet.
Paolo Maltese: And this is the girl, my fidanzata, that I am bringing home to meet my folks. Of all the women in the whole world that I can choose from to be my wife, who do I choose? An ignorant slob of a hatcheck girl who thinks Pisa - Piazza del Duomo in Pisa, Joey - is a stopping-off place between hamburger joints.
The Marquess of Frinton: It is a Rolls Royce, isn't it? I assume it must... go!
Mae Jenkins: Look - The car is smiling! It's got eyes, a nose... and a mouth! You know what else it's got? Class! Paolo, l want this one!
