** For Zoe, being unable to talk is quite a handicap when your mother isn't paying attention to her, a thief [[spoiler: saves her and is mistaken for her kidnapper while her actual nanny is her kidnapper and takes her to Costa's place while the thief is arrested]]. Small wonder that her first word in the film is [[spoiler: "MAMA!"]]
