Heh, yeah. Oops. I thought that's what it was -- what I heard, but I copied the line from imdb.com and just trusted them. Original post corrected.

FWIW, my observation is that cannoli has made the transition into English as a singular noun (despite its being plural in Italian), especially since I've seen and heard the form cannolis on many occasions. I've also never heard an English speaker refer to a cannolo.

There is that, as well. However, I *was* quoting a movie, and I think cannoli is the correct quote.

Yes, so it seems.

Now, you don't have to take cannoli yourself! You can send a CannoliGram™ anywhere in the USA within 48 hours!

Actually, I'm kidding. I'm skeptical of the "vanilla cream" filling.
