  • Luigi: I've a' worked very hard to make my restaurant a success...
  • Luigi smashes.
  • Luigi: Too hard, maybe... My a' customers are loyal, but they don' a' want me to change ANYTHING.
  • Mary: You know, I've been reading a lot about the 'new guard' of chefs...
  • Mary: A lot of them are throwing private parties where they'll invite their more adventurous customers.
