Maria: Oh my God…
Altaïr: Maria, when we left Masyaf ten years ago, this Order was strong. But all our progress has been undone.
Maria: Abbas must answer for this.
Altaïr: Answer to whom? The Assassins obey only his command now.
Maria: Resist your desire for revenge, Altaïr. Speak truth and they will see their error.

Maria: Speak reasonably, and reasonable men will listen.
Altaïr: Some will, but not Abbas. I should have expelled him thirty years ago when he tried to steal the Apple.
Maria: But you earned the respect of the other Assassins because you let him stay.
Altaïr: How do you know this? You were not there.
Maria: I married a masterful storyteller.[download]
“Ah, the truth is out already! Abbas wants the Apple for himself. Not to open your minds, but to control them!
