Under the Tuscan Sun

Do you know the most surprising thing about divorce? It doesnt actually kill you. Like a bullet to the heart or a head-on car wreck. It should. When someone youve promised to cherish till death do you part says I never loved you, it should kill you instantly. You shouldnt have to wake up day after day after that, trying to understand how in the world you didnt know. The light just never went on, you know. I must have known, of course, but I was too scared to see the truth. Then fear just makes you so stupid.

A lot of us feel really badly about that.

I am going to make love all over your body!

Ill hire the muscular descendants of Roman gods to do the heavy lifting.

Well, its not good. Unless you want to give your butt a facial.

Sure. Green light – avanti, avanti. Yellow light – decoration.

Regrets are a waste of time. Theyre the past crippling you in the present.

Well, Im not there alone. Im there with bugs.

You greedy Americans. You think youre so entitled. You ruin everything.

Ladybugs, Katherine. Lots and lots of ladybugs.

Inner voice…What the f*** am I doing on a gay tour of Tuscany?

Everybody has that saying because its true everywhere.

What is it about love that makes us so stupid?

Signora, between Austria and Italy, there is a section of the Alps called the Semmering. It is an impossibly steep, very high part of the mountains. They built a train track over these Alps to connect Vienna and Venice. They built these tracks even before there was a train in existence that could make the trip. They built it because they knew some day, the train would come.

What are four walls, anyway? They are what they contain. The house protects the dreamer. Unthinkably good things can happen, even late in the game. Its such a surprise.

Youre the one that made the empty-shell person standing at the crossroads speech.

Terrible idea… Dont you just love those?

Id like to make an offer on the house. This is what I can pay, minus the work on the place, and a rental car to drive off a cliff when this all turns out to have been a terrible mistake.

Dont be ridiculous, Patti. You are my love life.

The way my life is currently going, that would be a terrible idea.

Frances bought a house in Tuscany! And youre going to live there alone?

I refuse to screw up your love life.

Oh, love is blind. Yeah, we have that saying too.

Its a nice little villa. Are you going to buy it?

Youre right – I got everything I asked for.

Every day I watch for the old man with the flowers, and I wonder, was he born here? Did he love someone here? Did he lose someone here? He doesnt seem as curious about me, but thats alright.

Signora. Please stop being so sad. If you continue like this, I will be forced to make love to you. And Ive never been unfaithful to my wife.

Signora, please stop being so sad. If you continue like this, I will be forced to make love to you, and Ive never been unfaithful to my wife.

No, its not stupid, Signora Mayes. Lamore e cieco.

Never lose your childish innocence. Its the most important thing.
