EFFIE shakes her head bewildered. in to her caressing her cheek. MARCO smiles, and steps

MARCO (CONT'D) Naturalmente non hai. Perche vuoi imparare la lingua del paese che stai visitando? Tipico americano. MARCO holds up a camera, gestures towards the fountain. MARCO (CONT'D) Probabilmente non avete idea che cosa si tratta. EFFIE nods and takes his camera. MARCO flexes and stands in front of the fountain. EFFIE holds up the camera and snaps a shot. MARCO (CONT'D) Dio, vi soon enormi. Come un bulldog poco grasso. MARCO waves at her to approach. He gestures for her to stand next to him. He puts his arm around her and holds the camera up to take a picture of them both. MARCO (CONT'D) Ho bisogno di prendere una foot di voi di avere la prova che questo era vicino un lamantino. MARCO snaps the picture. His hand slips behind her and takes her coinpurse out of her bag He thanks her effusively. He pulls her in and kisses her on the lips passionately. MARCO (CONT'D) Devo andare a lavare la puzza di voi fuori di me. MARCO waves and jogs away from her backwards.
