-And you know why my husband, Ettore’s father, was a first-rate son of a bitch?
-How should I know?
-Because his mother was a bloodsucker, his father a thief.
-Why were they a bloodsucker and a thief?
-Because his mother’s father was a hit man and his mother’s mother was a beggar. His father’s mother was a madam. His father’s father was a snitch.
-God deliver us from evil.
(…)
-Whose fault is it?
-The birds’ and the bees’.
-Explain to me why I’m a nobody and you’re the king of kings.
