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:
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.

[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.

Colonel von Waldheim:
Labiche! Here's your prize, Labiche. Some of the greatest paintings in the world. Does it please you, Labiche? Give you a sense of excitement in just being near them? A painting means as much to you as a string of pearls to an ape. You won by sheer luck: you stopped me without knowing what you were doing, or why. You are nothing, Labiche -- a lump of flesh. The paintings are mine; they always will be; beauty belongs to the man who can appreciate it! They will always belong to me or to a man like me. Now, this minute, you couldn't tell me why you did what you did.

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?
