In Hotel Lobby, Carlotta meets Davide for the first time but realizes what she had planned is not what will truly meet her needs.
CARLOTTA: When I first arrived here I told myself that what I was doing was the right thing, that what I wanted was relief from all the years of pain that has built up, that I was entitled, allowed to be intimate with someone else because of it all…it’s not that the thought hasn’t crossed my mind, but I had always kept my marriage first, I always lived by my own deep set of values…but, a few drinks in, and after much justification, I was ready to relinquish my ideals. However, becoming acquainted with you Davide has made me feel that I don’t need to sacrifice my own moral ground…sure, it would be something to have you in that way, something that perhaps we would both never forget, but I know that over time my actions will eat at me and who will I hire next to solve that problem? I won’t bring myself down and make myself feel like less of a woman…I’ve given myself the permission to go this far with you and that is enough, that’s as far as it will go.
