EXT: Street: Sunny day: NICHOLAS and ANNA MARIA, proud parents, Wheeling their baby boy in a carriage, are happy as they walk to church to have him Christened. The proud father wants to have his son named after him and his wife wants to have him named after her father who is old and still lives in Italy.
Anna Maria, I’m telling you for the last time. This boy, my only son who the good Lord blessed me with must be named Victorio Guido Sanducci; after my grandfather, my father and me, who was and is called, Victorio Guido Sanducci, and that is final!
And I say, since it is I who gave birth to this beautiful boy that I demand he be named Nicholas Pietro, after my father who is old and dying in Italy, and bad enough I took your last name Sanducci! I vote for Nicholas Pietro Sanducci and that is final! Take it or leave it!
Over my dead body!
Not over your dead body, over my dead body.
