He shoots off fireworks after he's done. He'll buy food and cannolis. You don't get any extra things.

Juan is playing "Arrivederci Roma." "Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye to Rome.
How would you like your kid sitting there. I've love it! Are you nuts? Where are they getting all of them? He wants to help his family. He's not there.
