Max has just arrived from a trip to the train station, where he was supposed to picked up Mr. Merelli. He is now cleaning up the hotel room. ) MAGGIE. Tito Merelli is so sensitive, Max. MAX. How do you know that? MAGGIE. ( She realizes she’s caught. Then, casually ) Because I met him. Last year. MAX. …You did? You never told me that. MAGGIE. It was no big thing. When I was in Italy with Daddy, we went to La Scala and he was in Aida . Then afterwards we went backstage and…well, there he was, all by himself, behind the curtain. He was wearing a sort of…loincloth and his whole body was pouring with sweat. Anyway, he looked up and saw us and do you know what he did, Max. He kissed my palms. MAX. Yeah. So what? MAGGIE. It was romantic. MAX. He’s Italian! They kiss everything! MAGGIE. Fine, forget it.
