DialogueEdit

Tito Beppi: Some poor family with too many babes abandoned her - for the Saints to take care of.
Simon: You mean for us to care for! Give her to the orphanage - women bring bad luck!
Tito Beppi: No, Simon, what the Saints have sent, sinners can't refuse. I'm going to keep her!

Luigi: You know - I think you'd be good for me.
Tito Beppi: And I've been thinking - you'd be good for me.
Luigi: Shall we try...

Tito Beppi: The comedy... is... ended! [Tito dies onstage in Simon's arms]
Young girl: That's Flik on the floor.
