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:
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.

Miss Villard:
I knew of books being burned, other things... I was terrified that these would be lost.



Colonel von Waldheim:
A book is worth a few francs; we Germans can afford to destroy those. We all may not appreciate artistic merit, but cash value is another matter.



Miss Villard:
You won't convince me that you're cynical. I know what these paintings mean to you.



Colonel von Waldheim:
You are a perceptive woman.


[Schmidt enters, with several other soldiers.]



Colonel von Waldheim:
We're removing the paintings. Pack them carefully.



Miss Villard:
Where are you taking them?!



Colonel von Waldheim:
To a safe place.



Miss Villard:
But no place is as safe as Paris!

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?

Resistance leader:
London agrees the art is important. Anything we can do to save it... but they leave it up to us.



Labiche:
Why not? What can they lose? This morning we had four men left in this group. Now we have three. One, two, three.



Pesquet:
Bernard?



Labiche:
We started with eighteen. Like your paintings, mademoiselle, we couldn't replace them. For certain things we take the risk, but I won't waste lives on paintings.



Miss Villard:
They wouldn't be wasted! Excuse me, I know that's a terrible thing to say. But those paintings are part of France. The Germans want to take them away. They've taken our land, our food, they live in our houses, and now they're trying to take our art. This beauty, this vision of life, born out of France, our special vision, our trust... we hold it in trust, don't you see, for everyone? This is our pride, what we create and hold for the world. There are worse things to risk your life for than that.



Labiche:
I'm sorry, mademoiselle, we can't help you.
