An Unforgettable Fable That Proves Love, Family And Imagination Conquer All

Buon giorno, Principessa! 

The game starts now. 
You have to score one thousand points. 
If you do that, you take home a tank with a big gun. 
Each day we will announce the scores from that loudspeaker. 
The one who has the fewest points will have to wear a sign that says "Jackass" on his back. 
There are three ways to lose points. 
One, turning into a big crybaby. 
Two, telling us you want to see your mommy. 
Three, saying you're hungry and want something to eat.

If you speak my name, I vanish. What am I? Silence. 

[Giosue Orefice]: "No Jews or Dogs Allowed." 
Why do all the shops say, "No Jews Allowed"?
[Guido]: Oh, that. "Not Allowed" signs are the latest trend! 
The other day, I was in a shop with my friend the kangaroo, but their sign said, "No Kangaroos Allowed," and I said to my friend, "Well, what can I do? They don't allow kangaroos." 
[Giosue Orefice]: Why doesn't our shop have a "Not Allowed" sign?
[Guido]: Well, tomorrow, we'll put one up. We won't let in anything we don't like. 
What don't you like? 
[Giosue Orefice]: Spiders.
[Guido]: Good. I don't like Visigoths. 
Tomorrow, we'll get sign: "No Spiders or Visigoths Allowed."

[Guido, being shipped to concentration camp]: You've never ridden on a train, have you? 
They're fantastic! Everybody stands up, close together, and there are no seats! 
[Giosue Orefice]: There aren't any seats?
[Guido]: Seats? On a train? It's obvious you've never ridden one before! 
No, everybody's packed in, standing up. 
Look at this line to get on! 
Hey, we've got tickets, save room for us! 

[Giosue Orefice]: When can I see Mama?
[Guido]: When the game's over.

You're serving. You're not a servant. Serving is a supreme art. 
God is the first servant. God serves men but he's not a servant to men. 
[Eliseo Orefice]
