[ dissolve to interior, corking room, as Giuseppe enters with tour group]

Giuseppe : Right this way, folks. You're now entering.. the corking room. This is where.. the final step in the bottling process happens - where we prepare all the corks for all the bottles of Brunello that you saw earlier.

Marcello : Any questions? [ a hand is raised ] Yes?

Female Tourist : I've always actually wondered about that. How do you cork the bottles?

Marcello : Excellent-a question, ma bella. As you can see, we are -asoaking all of the corks in this room right now. These three guys right here are some of the most talented cork soakers! Say hello, you all cork soakers!

[ the three cork soakers turn around and wave happily to the tour group ]

Male Tourist : Now, I'm curious - how does one become a cork soaker.

Giuseppe : As we-a like-a to say, "Cork soakers are born, not made."

Marcello : Yeah. Luigi here was simply born to soak cork! Come say hi, Luigi!

Luigi : I love-a soaking the cork! I could-a soak the cork all night long, if they let me! I want to-a soak two corks at once!

Female Tourist : So.. are all corks the same?

Marcello : No, no, no..

Cork Soaker #1 : I like-a to soak the big-a, thick-a corks!

Luigi : I like-a the long-a, skinny ones.

Cork Soaker #2 : I like-a the dark-a ones.

Giuseppe : The great-a thing about the cork soaking, is that while you are-a soaking the cork, you can also.. massage-a the grapes, until the cork is ready. [ holds up a bunch of grapes ]

Marcello : That's right.

Female Tourist : [ stumbling, on the verge of cracking up ] So, how did you learn to sork.. corks -- suck -- soak corks?

Marcello : You know, I'll never forget the first time I soaked-a cork. I was fifteen, in-a summer camp.

Female Tourist : You know, I've noticed that all the cork soakers are men. Do women make good soakers?

Giuseppe : Oh, yes! Yes! Monica, Carmella - come in here!

Marcello : Come in here.

[ Monica and Carmella enter scene ]

Giuseppe : Monica.. tell-a these-a nice-a people.. how you soak the cork.

Monica : Well, ever since I started soaking cork, I'm the most popular girl in school!

Marcello : It's-a true - men come-a from all over just to watch her soak a cork. And Grandma Carmella still-a soaking cork at age 87! I got ot say that, too!

Carmella : [ speaking with her gums ] It's crazy! Ever since I lost my teeth, people tell me I soak the cork better than ever!

Female Tourist : Wow, this soaking corks really seems like a family business. So.. does your wife like soaking.. [ laughing ] ..s-s-soaking cork?

Marcello : Well.. she used to, when we were dating. Now, not so much.

Male Tourist : Um.. could you teach me how to soak cork?

Giuseppe : You know.. when-a you walked in here.. I could-a sworn you already an expert cork soaker!

Male Tourist : [ flattered ] Thank you! I dabbled in college. Um.. but, let me ask you this - do you ever run out of corks to soak?

Marcello : Oh, yeah, I'll never forget this one that was unusually large. And I thought Giuseppe would need extra cork.

Giuseppe : And I thought Marcello would need more corks.

Marcello : So we soaked-a each other's corks at the same time! [ to Giuseppe ] Do you remember that?

Giuseppe : Can you imagine that? Me-a soaking his cork.. while-a he soaked mine ?

Marcello : Oh, boy!

Giuseppe : What year was that?

Marcello : The year we soaked each other's corks?

Giuseppe : Yes.

Marcello : That-a was, what.. that was like, sixty.. late 60's, right?

Giuseppe : Yes.

Marcello : Sixty.. eight?

Giuseppe : I-a wanted to say.. 70.

Marcello : No.. you sure it wasn't one earlier than that?

Giuseppe : It was sometime or other..

Marcello : Let's just say between 68 and 70, alright?

Female Tourist : This is all really so fascinating. So, do you think that one of you could teach me how to soak.. soak.. [ laughing ] ..s-s-soak corks?

[ the cork soakers cheer excitedly, each rallying to be the one to teach the beautfiul tourist the art of their craft ]

Giuseppe : Oh, I'm sorry. Come with me, ma bella. I will let you soak-a my cork as long as you like!

[ they depart from the group ]

Marcello : Cheers! Cheers!

SNL Transcripts

I feel like a lot of these comments are truly negative. Plain? Frankly if she were a supermodel, we’d all be saying “Oh how typical”.(eye roll).(cough Leonardo DiCaprio anyone?) Age appropriate? Please….how many Hollywood actors do you see everyday dating women/girls YEARS and YEARS younger than they are (Leonardo DiCaprio). I feel Henry has a type, and that would appear to be the healthy/athletic type, which I think is commendable, and I also appreciate that he doesn’t just stick to celebrities, he seems to date people who don’t necessarily work directly in the industry, which I think is refreshing.
