Labiche:
Where are the Allies?



Resistance leader:
It has been arranged for a French division to reach Paris first. A gesture.



Labiche:
Gesture! They can make gestures! Let them make one for Pesquet, or Jacques! That kid of Lefèvre's... he'd appreciate a gesture.

Resistance leader:
Right after dawn, all switching tracks and trains in the area will be bombed. The art train is not to be destroyed. Orders are to mark it so that the planes will pass it up.



Labiche:
Mark it!



Resistance leader:
White paint, on the top of the first three cars. London has decided the paintings must not be damaged.



Labiche:
Paint it? For von Waldheim-- make him a present? To hell with London! We started this whole thing for one reason: to stop the train, because the Allies were going to be here! Well, where are they? Every day they've been due, and every day a man has been killed for thinking they were just over the next hill. I say to hell with them. Now they want us to paint the train? Let 'em blow it up!



Didont:
Paul, it'd be too bad, if it got blown up... that is, if it could be saved. Papa Boule, Pesquet, the others... they wanted it saved.



Labiche:
And they're dead. And they'll never know!



Didont:
But we will.

[The tracks are being cleared after the deliberate wreck.]



Colonel von Waldheim:
I asked for two cranes.



Major Herren:
It took an order from staff headquarters to get this one. With von Runstedt falling back, the army has other uses for railway equipment.



Colonel von Waldheim:
All von Runstedt can lose is men. This train is more valuable.

Didont:
With luck, no one will be hurt.



Labiche:
No one's ever hurt. Just dead.



Didont:
Paul, uh, have you ever seen any of those paintings on that train? I haven't. You know, when it's over, I think maybe we should take a look, hmm?

Labiche:
Thank you.



Christine:
I don't want your thanks. If they'd caught me helping you, I would have been shot.



Labiche:
I know. I'm sorry.



Christine:
You think you can just run in and out of here and make trouble? I run a hotel, not a madhouse. Who's going to pay for the door? Who's going to pay for the lock? Do you think money grows on trees?



Labiche:
There's a war...



Christine:
You talk about the war. I talk about what it costs!



Labiche:
I'll be leaving in a few hours. You can go back to your good customers.



Christine:
They pay. That's what I'm in business for.



Labiche:
You should be paid. How much for the damage?



Christine:
One hundred francs.


[He pays her.]



Labiche:
How much for saving my life?
