I thought I heard Robert Loggia (as Feech La Mama) say ""Ssa benidiga." My Sicilian grandmother said that almost daily. It sounded like "Zom beni-diga" to me and I thought she said it as an exclamation like "Son of a gun" or "Can you believe that?"
Does anyone remember what episode he says that and what does it mean to you?

Re-watching I eventually found it; Loggia says "Ssa benediga" in the old fashioned Sicilian context of asking for a blessing before leaving.
