Paolo was uneasy about saying nothing to Tony, but understood why conversation wasn't the flavour of the moment. Tony must be hurting really badly on a number of fronts... Terry's probable demise, the money, the speeding ticket, the helplessness and the dealings with the police. But if he was in anguish, he wasn't saying anything or making a sound. Tony merely stared straight ahead.
The only thing Tony finally said was "Take me home Paolo. You can crash down in one of the rooms too.... but let's not talk now."
Paolo did as instructed. It was 2.25am. He was knackered.
