Perfectly Quotable

Danny DeVito

“In 1993, my wife, Rhea (Perlman), and I flew to Rome, then we took the train to Naples. We were scared to death of the winding roads of the Amalfi Coast, so we chartered a speed boat to take us to Positano. That incredible blue sea, that coast, those islands. We ate the leftover salumi and cheeses we had packed for our picnic lunch on the train.

“We stayed at Le Sirenuse, on a cliff overlooking the water. The first night we went down to the beachfront restaurant and I ate like I was going to the chair. The next thing I know, a server brings out the limoncello. That got me, right there. Suddenly, in that tiny town, lemons growing on vines right up the walls, it was like I had discovered something. Ever since then, I wanted all the limoncello I could drink. And now, I make my own.”
