"Ugly Betty: Betty's Wait Problem (#2.3)" (2007)
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: Okay, Chicken and Cheese Special on a Baguette, no chicken, no cheese... no baguette.
[to Betty]
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: I just sold her a plate of lettuce for seven bucks.
Betty Suarez: Yes, but that's her breakfast, lunch, and dinner. So really, it's a bargain.

Betty Suarez: Can I please get the Turkey Sundried Tomato on a Baguette?
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: [claps] Yes! Man! I knew you were an eater!
Betty Suarez: Oh! Thank you, I guess...

Betty Suarez: So, you're new. What happened to Robert?
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: Ya know, I think he inherited money... or got arrested. I don't know, there was a lawyer and cash involved.
Betty Suarez: Well... welcome!

Betty Suarez: Oh, hey! I'm glad you're still here. There's just a little problem with my sandwich.
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: Oh, man! Is there a hair? I'm like the only one in my family with a full head.

Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: Sorry, I don't know where Robert is. I'm not his keeper. But Robert didn't know jack about food. A sundried tomato is a concentrated flavor, more than three on a sandwich would overwhelm the smoky flavor of the turkey.
Betty Suarez: Okay, ya know what? I think my turkey can handle it. So, could I please just have some more sundried tomatoes?

Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: Well, you must be happy.
Betty Suarez: [into phone] I'll call you back.
[to Gio]
Betty Suarez: Why?
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: I just got fired because you went crying to your boss. Now I don't have a job...
[to self]
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: Man! I'm going to have to go back to stealing cable from my neighbor, which I don't feel right about. All because the little Mode-girl wasn't happy with her sandwhich.
Betty Suarez: No, look! I wasn't trying to get you fired...
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: Well, nonetheless, you did.
[to the rest of Mode staff]
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: Alright, everybody! That's it for me! But before I go: there is no such thing as fat-free Mayo. There's a hundred and twenty-five calories of pure fat per tablespoon and I put two on every sandwich.
[to Betty]
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: See you around Mode-girl.

Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: Wow! That was... that was nice of you.
Betty Suarez: See? I'm not a Mode-girl. A Mode-girl wouldn't have done that.
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: Yeah, I guess not. But, that's okay. I don't want it back.
Betty Suarez: Why?
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: 'Cause loosing that job was exactly the kick in the butt I needed. It was taking me away from my 5-year plan.
Betty Suarez: What's happening in five years?
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: I'm starting my own place. Ya know, Gio's Sandwich Depot: three hundred seats, a thousand kinds of sandwiches and the world's longest condiment bar. You name it, it's on there. Go ahead, name one.
Betty Suarez: Um... mustard?
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: Of course there's going to be mustard there! Come on, use your imagination.
Betty Suarez: Sorry, you caught me off-guard.
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: Gio's going to be huge!

Betty Suarez: Hey! Wait! You have a van! We need a van. Would you drive me to New Jersey to pick up a wheelchair? We'd pay you.
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: Sure, I could do that. Get in!
Betty Suarez: [thinks for a moment] Sour-kraut?
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: Don't embarrass yourself.

Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: [on the phone] Daniel, it's Betty again, we got you your chair but you're just going to have to meet us here because it's almost eleven o'clock so you're just going to have to meet us here, and I've got the lint roller so I'll just go over you when you get here.
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: Man!
Betty Suarez: What?
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: I think I know the reason why you don't write: you're too busy de-linting your bosses ass.

Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: What have you written?
Betty Suarez: A lot! Actually, I used to practically run the Queens Community College newspaper, but since I've left the quality has gone way down.
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: No, I mean lately.
Betty Suarez: Uh, well... nothing, really, but I do have a lot of ideas.
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: Good! Keeping it all up there! That's how Hemingway did it. He was thinking 'What a nice morning' and The Sun Also Rises just "magically" appeared on the page.

Betty Suarez: Are you making fun of me?
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: Nah
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: I'm sorry. I just hope you're not one of these people who just waits for things to happen. What are you, like thirty now?
Betty Suarez: I'm twenty-three!

"Ugly Betty: A Thousand Words by Friday (#2.13)" (2008)
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: So, did you hear? Phil Roth is in the house!
Betty Suarez: Oh! You know who Philip Roth is? Author of 'Portnoy's Complaint', 'Goodbye, Columbus'...
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: ...'American pastoral', yeah. Not everyone who makes sandwiches is a lunk.

Betty Suarez: What?! Who's Phil Roth?
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: He writes books on how to pick up chicks.
Betty Suarez: [shrugs] Oh, my god! Daniel said Phil Roth, but I just thought he was doing his annoying casual thing... Bobby de Niro, Marty Scorsese. I don't want to interview a guy who writes books like that.
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: Hey! You get to write an article, okay? Now, go in there with an open mind. He's actually got a lot to say!

Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: [at a Bar] I think I'm going to go for that blondie over there.
Betty Suarez: Gio, don't you think she's a little out of your league?
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: League?! I'm a guy. The universe is my league!

Henry Grubstick: Statistically speaking, two test subjects increases your chances of validating this mating theory.
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: You should open with that, chicks would love it.
Henry Grubstick: Hey! I can Tap That better than you.
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: Are you serious?
Henry Grubstick: Serious as a nova.
Betty Suarez: Guys, no, this is my research, not a contest.

Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: [to a girl at the bar] Cute outfit! You know, some people may call it 'slutty' but I think it really works on you.

Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: [to a girl at the bar] It's so nice to meet a girl who dosen't buy into the whole skinny thing.

Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: [to a girl at the bar] Man! You got some big feet!!

Henry Grubstick: Who's The Man?
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: Usually, not the guy who says 'Who's the man'!

Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: I told that girl over there that I'm going to Iraq next week. Gotta strike now.
Betty Suarez: Classy.

Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: But, come on, the guy is going down there to see his girlfriend. But relax! It's not like... he's going to get her pregnant again!
Betty Suarez: That's disgusting! He would never cheat on me.
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: Yeah
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: you're right. That's not Eggie's style.
Betty Suarez: His name is not 'Eggie'... it's 'Egg Salad'!!
[loud laughs]
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: Betty, are you okay?
Betty Suarez: No. It's Henry... It's Henry.

Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: You know, for what it's worth, you smell really good!
Betty Suarez: You smell really good, too.

Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: Well, don't worry. Whatever happens in Tucson, stays in Tucson.

Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: Look, I've been thinking about it and I just want to apologize. I should have never said Egg Salad was going to do something wrong in Tucson. And I know you don't like it, so I'm not to call him Egg Salad anymore.
[looks away]
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: It's Henry... you're boyfriend, Henry.

"Ugly Betty: The Kids Are Alright (#2.17)" (2008)
Gio: You frenched me, Suarez. You frenched me good.

Gio: I don't want to be the rebound guy...I want to be The Guy.

Betty Suarez: My trophy speaks with a Mexican accent?
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: All trophies do!

Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: So, the principal turns to her and says 'Betty Suarez, you're expelled!'
Antonella: No way!
Justin Suarez: Badass!
Betty Suarez: No, it is not badass to be expelled from school so don't go getting any ideas.
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: [hugging his sister Antonella] Too late, you're officially a bad influence.

Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: Oh, I see, you get your kiss and now you're blowing me off.

"Ugly Betty: Bananas for Betty (#2.10)" (2007)
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: It's interesting, you only call me when you need something. When was the last time you've been down to my deli and bought a sandwich?
Betty Suarez: Well, Gio, that's because every time I come in you tell, 'There she is: the eater!'
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: It's cute! It's our thing!

Betty Suarez: Every weekend we have a themed topping. Last week we were watching Walk the Line, you know about Johnny Cash, so he topped up cashews. It was fun!
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: And did you eat it with a Reese Wither-spoon?

Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: Well, if I loved a girl, and I knew I had so little time left with her, then every night would be a chance to make a memory. Believe me, if there was any ice cream involved, I would be eating it off her stomach.
Hilda Suarez: Sexy!
Betty Suarez: Gross!
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: I'd take her out to Montauk, with a bottle of wine, and we'd build a fire and sleep on the beach. Or maybe we'd climb the fire escape to the rooftop of The Blue Note and listen to music. Or maybe we'd just go out dancing. 'Cause you never feel closer to a woman than when you're holding her, ya know? So close you can feel her breath on your neck.
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: Because love doesn't come around often and I'd want to make every second count.

"Ugly Betty: Twenty-Four Candles (#2.14)" (2008)
Gio: Sorry, not quite the birthday you imagined, huh?
Betty Suarez: It's my own fault. I had this stupid fantasy, fireworks, epic romance... like Romeo and Juliet.
Gio: Ah! you know those two ended up dead in a tomb, right?
Betty Suarez: Yeah... But I don't like thinking about that part.
Gio: Fantasies are fun but you live in reality. It's not perfect but that doesn't mean it can't be pretty good.
Betty Suarez: I know. I know. And I'm lucky... except for the part where Henry's leaving me after his baby is born.

Betty Suarez: Whoa! Gio! Your hair!
Gio: Summer's coming, gotta let the head breathe.

"Ugly Betty: Betty Suarez Land (#3.4)" (2008)
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: You always do this to me. Right when I think I'm out you pull me right back in.
Betty Suarez: Well you know what, Gio? When this is all done you can get back into your 'meaty, cheese van' and drive as far away from 'Betty Suarez Town' as you want.
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: ...'Suarez Land'.

Betty Suarez: Okay! I do not live in 'Betty Suarez Land'...
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: Oh, yes, you do! '25 Teddy Bear Lane, Betty Suarez Land, USA'. And if you'd step out of it for one minute you'd realize that it takes two to make a relationship and I am not interested.
Betty Suarez: Well, why not?
Giovanni 'Gio' Rossi: Because you broke my heart!
