Urgent! I need a crash course in Italian

Hi everyone. I'm at my friends house, and his family is coming over from Italy in about 20 minutes to an hour.

My friend is useless and speaks no Italian. I need to know some basic phrases and if you could, pronunciations. Thanks!

Vaffanculo is always a useful phrase, especially when things get heated. Remember to use lots of hand gestures.
