Lucrezia Borgia : Permit my Paolo a Christian burial.
Rodrigo Borgia : He is a suicide. It is impossible.
Lucrezia Borgia : [Handing it to her father] This note was pinned to his sleeve.
Rodrigo Borgia : [Examining it] Yes, a suicide note.
Lucrezia Borgia : But he could not read or write, Father. My Paolo could not even pen his own name.
Rodrigo Borgia : [after considerable thought] So it was murder! Where is the murderer?
Lucrezia Borgia : Too close for comfort.
