Mario Auditore: Itsa me, Mario!
Ezio Auditore da Firenze: I thought... I thought I was beyond this. But I'm not. I've waited too long, lost too much. Requiescat in Pace, you bastard!
Rodrigo Borgia: You can't. You can't! This is my destiny. MINE! I am the prophet!
Ezio Auditore da Firenze: You never were.
Rodrigo Borgia: Get it over with then.
Ezio Auditore da Firenze: No. Killing you won't bring my family back. I'm done. Nulla è reale, tutto è lecito. Requiescat in pace.
[Nothing is true, everything is permitted. Rest in peace]
Desmond Miles: [after receiving the prophecy from Minerva] What the fuck?
Ezio Auditore da Firenze: I've always had a soft spot for women in distress.
Ezio Auditore da Firenze: Buona sera, Vieri! We were just talking about you. I'm surprised to see you here. I thought the Pazzi hired others to do their dirty work.
Vieri de' Pazzi: It's your family that cries for guards when there's trouble, codardo
[Italian word for 'coward']
Vieri de' Pazzi: ! Afraid to handle things your self?
Ezio Auditore da Firenze: Your sister seemed quite satisfied with the 'handling' I gave her earlier.
Ezio Auditore da Firenze: What do you even want with the Vault, Rodrigo?
Rodrigo Borgia: Don't you know what lies within? Or do you mean to tell me the great and powerful Assassins didn't figure it out?
Ezio Auditore da Firenze: Figure out what?
Rodrigo Borgia: God! It's God that dwells within.
Ezio Auditore da Firenze: You expect me to believe that God lives beneath il Vaticano?
Rodrigo Borgia: A more logical location than a kingdom on a cloud, don't you think? Surrounded by singing angels and cherubim. Makes for a lovely image, but the truth is far more interesting.
Ezio Auditore da Firenze: Let's say I was to believe you - what do you think He'll do when you open that door?
Rodrigo Borgia: I don't care. It's not approval I'm after, just power.
Ezio Auditore da Firenze: And you think He'll give it up?
Rodrigo Borgia: Whatever lies beyond that wall won't be able to resist the Staff and Apple. They were MADE for felling Gods.
Ezio Auditore da Firenze: God is meant to be all knowing. All powerful. You think a couple of ancient relics can harm Him.
Rodrigo Borgia: You know nothing, boy. You take your image of the creators from an ancient book - a book, mind you, written by men.
Ezio Auditore da Firenze: You are the Pope! And yet you dismiss the central text of your Faith?
Rodrigo Borgia: Are you so naïve? I became Pope because it gave me access. It gave me power! Do you think I believe a single god-damned word of that ridiculous book? It's all lies and superstition. Just like every other religious tract written over the past ten thousand years.
Ezio Auditore da Firenze: [about to fight Rodrigo Borgia, hand-to-hand style] It's over Rodrigo. No more tricks, no more ancient artifacts, no more weapons. Let's see what you are made of, old man!
Vieri de' Pazzi: I'm sorry, were you hoping for a confession?
Ezio Auditore da Firenze: [yelling in Italian] Piece of shit! I only wish you'd suffered more! You met the fate you deserved! I hope you...
Mario Auditore: [approaching] Enough, Ezio! Show some respect!
Ezio Auditore da Firenze: [throwing down Vierri's corpse] Respect? After all that's happened? Do you think he would have shown either of us such kindness?
Mario Auditore: You have *killed* Vieri; do *not* become him.
[Mario kneels down to close Vierri's eyes]
Mario Auditore: Requiescat in pace.
Desmond Miles: Okay, guess I better get started.
Rodrigo Borgia: I will cut you down, Assassin!
Rodrigo Borgia: So sorry to have claimed your prize, Assassin. Did you honestly think I wouldn't expect you to follow? That I didn't plan for it? We've been at this a lot longer than you.
Mario Auditore: Laa shay'a waqi'un moutlaq bale kouloun moumkine. These are the words spoken by our ancestors that lay at the heart of our creed.
Niccolò Machiavelli: Where other men blindly follow the truth, remember...
Ezio Auditore da Firenze: Nothing is true.
Niccolò Machiavelli: Where other men are limited, by morality or law, remember...
Ezio Auditore da Firenze: Everything is permitted.
Niccolò Machiavelli: We work in the dark, to serve the light. We are assassins.
Niccolò Machiavelli: Nothing is true, everything is permitted.
Ezio Auditore da Firenze: Doesn't seem like anybody showed up, Rodrigo! How many people have died for this? For what's in this box? And look- There's nobody here!
Rodrigo Borgia: You claim not to be a believer. And yet, here you are... Don't you see him? The Prophet is already here... I am the Prophet. Now give me the Apple.
Ezio Auditore da Firenze: Come and take it from me.
Rodrigo Borgia: This is a losing battle for you, hombrecito. You will die by my hand, just like your father. This war has been going on far longer than either of us have played a role.
