[to Alberto]

Maria 'Cabiria' Ceccarelli: There's another girl, my friend Wanda, she lives there too, but I don't bother with the others. The others all sleep under the arches in Caracalla. Mind you, I have my own house with water, electricity, bottled gas, I've got everything, even a thermometer. See this one here? She never ever slept under an arch. Well, maybe once... or twice. Of course, my house is nothing like this. But I like it.
