MICHAEL (rises and walks over to Vincent): You look pale. Bad news? Tell me right away
VINCENT: Its not just a bad banking deal. These guys are butchers.
MICHAEL: What guys?
VINCENT: Lucchesi. He controls all of themAltobello, the Archbishop, other people higher up. P2 maybe. Secret, unknown. They're running things.
MICHAEL:I'm in their way.
VINCENT: Yeah. Hes hired a professional assassin to kill you. Hes Sicilian. I don't know his name. They say he never fails.
MICHAEL: Then no one is safe. Even the new pope is in danger.
VINCENT: No. We still have time. We can prevent this.
MICHAEL: I tried Vincent. I tried, to keep everything from coming to this. But its not possible. Not in this, world.
VINCENT: Give me the order. [Order?].
