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.
