It’s time to enjoy life, life with Luigi.
Every week Luigi writes to his mama to tell her of the new and exciting things he has learned in America. He marvels to her about the traffic lights in Chicago. He talks about his neighbor Pasquali who always wants Luigi to marry his fat daughter Rosa. Even as he writes, Pasquali shows up to prove Luigi’s point.
On the street, Luigi runs into his English teacher, who he has a crush on. He shares with her a little of how he feels for her. He wants to ask her to go dancing to prove a point to Pasquali, but she already has a date. She offers an idea for Luigi, and he sets out to find a date from the phone book.
After some misadventures on the phone, Luigi arranges a blind date with the phone operator. Luigi writes his mom about is expected date, then goes to brag to Pasquali about it.
Luigi makes an impression on his blind date, but she sticks with him anyway. Fortunately, Luigi knows the host athtthe the swanky nightclub, and gets a good table, but what about the pricey menu? Things don’t get any better for Luigi when Pasquali arrives. Pasquali and his fat daughter Rosa run up Luigi’s dinner bill.
Though it looks like a hopeless situation when it comes to getting stuck with the check, you know how Pasquali can be. Well, the restaurant host who befriended Luigi also knows Pasquali and how he can be. The friend does a good turn for Luigi and helps him out.
Despite it all, the blind date had a good time and parts on good terms with Luigi. Wil Luigi get a second date? Would he know what to do with one if he had one? He closes with a final thought to his mom.
