Italians are so passionate about their food. (1:32)

AS MUCH AS I LOVE THIS CITY

IT'S GOOD TO GET AWAY, YOU KNOW?

IT REALLY IS.

LIKE 'CAUSE PEOPLE HERE ARE

STRESSED OUT.

YOU SEE THEM RUNNING AROUND

ALL STRESSED OUT.

"I'M LATE.

I'M LATE.

I'VE GOTTA QUIT SMOKING.

I GOTTA QUIT SMOKING.

NO COFFEE.

GOTTA GET COFFEE.

NO SMOKING.

I GOTTA GO TO THE BATHROOM.

I'M CONSTIPATED.

WHAT'S THAT?

IT'S CANCER.

I KNOW IT'S CANCER.

I ALWAYS LOOK AT THOSE PEOPLE

AND I'M LIKE, "GOD, I'M GLAD

I'M NOT LIKE THAT."

AND THEN MY BROTHER GOT MARRIED

IN ITALY.

AND I WENT TO THAT AND IT WAS--

YOU KNOW-- I GOT OUT OF THE

COUNTRY AND I REALIZED I AM

LIKE THAT, YOU KNOW?

I WAS IN A RENT-A-CAR LOST IN

A MOUNTAIN WITH A MAP.

I'M LIKE, "WHAT THE HELL IS A

KILOMETER?

WHAT'S THAT IN AMERICAN?

THE ITALIANS WERE COOL,

YOU KNOW?

BUT THEY HAVE THESE

PRE-CONCEIVED NOTIONS ABOUT

NEW YORK, YOU KNOW?

"AH, SI, NEW YORK-- BANG-BANG.

NEW YORK."

[LAUGHTER]

"HEY, NEW YORK, YOUR MOTHER IS

OLD.

NEW YORK.

SI."

[LAUGHTER]

AND THE-- OH, THE FOOD WAS

UNBELIEVABLE THOUGH.

MAN, THE FOOD WAS GOOD.

AND THEY'RE SO PASSIONATE

ABOUT THE FOOD OVER THERE.

YOU GO TO A RESTAURANT AND ASK

WHAT STUFF IS ON THE MENU.

YOU CAN'T JUST GET A SMALL

DESCRIPTION.

THE WAITER'S GONNA HIT YOU

WITH THE WHOLE HISTORICAL

PERSPECTIVE ON IT.

YOU KNOW, I'M LIKE, "HOW'S THE

WINE?"

"AH, THE WINE?

YOU DON'T BELIEVE THIS WINE.

[LAUGHTER]

EACH GRAPE HANDPICKED BY A

BLIND MAN WHO WAS KIDNAPPED BY

THE GYPSIES.

[LAUGHTER]

THEY PUT HER IN A CAGE.

SHE CANNOT ESCAPE.

SHE STOMPED ON THE GRAPE.

THE JUICE COME OUT.

TASTE LIKE THE NECTAR OF GOD'S

BALLS THIS WINE.

BELIEVE."

[WHISTLES AND APPLAUSE]
