[as the Tsar considers abdication]

Tsar Nicholas II:
Tell me, Doctor Fedorov. If my son, as the future Tsar, were left behind, to be educated, while I and my family went abroad, how long would he be likely to live, as a hemophiliac?
Dr. Fedorov:
Deprived of your love and care, and what I hear are his natural surroundings, it's hard to say, it's a matter of luck and chance, your Majesty. There are no real statistics. One would hope that he could live a normal life, but, well... twenty would be a good age.

Transcript:
Tell me, Dr. Federov.
If my son...
...as the future Tsar...
...would remain behind
to be educated in Russia...
...while I and my family
went abroad...
...how long would he
be likely to live?
Deprived of your love and care...
...and what I call "customary
surroundings," it's hard to say.
It's a matter of
luck and chance, Your Majesty.
There are no real statistics.
One would hope that he could
live a normal span of life, but...
Well...
...twenty...
...would be a good age.
"Accordingly, in agreement
with the Imperial Duma...
...we have thought it right to
abdicate from the Russian throne...
...and to lay down
the supreme power.
Therefore..."
It seems in order.
May I?
- "Therefore, in the name..."
- I won't tear it up.
Shall I sign it in your lap?
I wish to add one thing more.
