Vanozza Cattaneo: [about Paolo's meeting with Lucrezia] You of all people should understand, Rodrigo, the need to see one's child.
Rodrigo Borgia: It was beyond foolish.
Vanozza Cattaneo: But you can forgive her surely.
Rodrigo Borgia: Question is... can she forgive herself?
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.
King Charles VIII: [Reclining in his tent] Your Spanish Pope has more appetite for war than you imagined, Lady Caterina.
King Charles VIII: [He gets up but it is obviouslty an effort] So we must will ourselves to battle once more.
Caterina Sforza: [as Charles is washing his face in a water pan] You think the blood of the Borgia Pope could cure us, Caterina Sforza?
Caterina Sforza: We could bathe in it together, Your Majesty.
[Charles laughs ironically]
