Ada Fiastri Paulhan: [Ada is drinking excessively in a small pub] Merry Christmas.

Alfredo Berlinghieri: [Knocks her drink out her hand] You know how long I've been looking for you?

Ada Fiastri Paulhan: Signora Berlinghieri can no longer drink at home because the wine is locked away. She can no longer drink is smart cafes because her husband has given orders against it. So she drinks in taverns.

Alfredo Berlinghieri: [Quiet but furious] I'm going to have you locked up in an asylum.

Ada Fiastri Paulhan: [Crawls under the table] I can drink here! I can even fall under the table. Nobody sees me anyway.

Alfredo Berlinghieri: Get up from there. Get up. You look disgusting. Your face is all swollen from the alcohol, you stink. Get up!

Ada Fiastri Paulhan: [Wanders to other people in the tavern] Do I disgust you too? Am I swollen? Do I stink?

Alfredo Berlinghieri: [Had just accused Olmo of hiding his wife] I'm sorry, I don't know what's the matter with me. I don't know, I'm not feeling well, I think I have a heart condition.

[Grabs his hand]

Alfredo Berlinghieri: Feel my heart.

Olmo Dalco: [Knocks him away] What heart? You're just sick in the head!

Alfredo Berlinghieri: Maybe you're right. I don't know, I'm going crazy. Ada's gone and I can't find her.

Alfredo Berlinghieri: You slut. You like fooling around with everyone. Even Olmo.

Ada Fiastri Paulhan: [Mocking] Olmo? What an imagination.

Alfredo Berlinghieri: Is it my imagination to have seen you together? That I've seen you with him before? Is it my imagination that I smell him on you?

Ada Fiastri Paulhan: [Yells] You think Olmo would have anything to do with the wife of a *fascist*?

Alfredo Berlinghieri: [Screams] Fascist? I am not a fascist! If you call me that again I will kill you! If I see you with him again I will kill you!

Giovanni Berlinghieri: [after a big hailstorm] What's happened? Lost your tongue, have you? Go head, tell them! How much grain have we lost? Tell them!

Leo Dalcò: Half.

Giovanni Berlinghieri: So, it's simple-you'll have to be satisfied with half pay. Take it or leave it.

Peasant: When we harvest double we don't get double pay.

Giovanni Berlinghieri: If I were to be honest, if I were to look after my interests alone, I should ditch you, fire the lot of you! Especially all you day laborers. And if you here weren't such an ignorant bunch, you would thank me! Because the one making the biggest sacrifice is me. What's the problem, anyway? Who gives the orders here? Who's the padrone? Hey you!

[points to the Peasant]

Giovanni Berlinghieri: We've lost nearly everything, didn't you hear? And yet, your ears are both big enough!

[the Peasant cuts off one of his ears and hands it to him]

Leo Dalcò: Maybe the truth is that when a man does nothing all his life, it leaves him too much time to think. And thinking too much makes him... makes him stupid.
