Raoul: Why did Christine fly from my arms?

Madame Giry: He welcomes you to his opera house...
Firmin: His opera house?
Madame Giry: ...and commands that you continue to leave box 5 empty for his use. And reminds you that his salary is due.
Firmin: His salary?
Madame Giry: Well, Monsieur Lefevre used to give him 20,000 francs a month.
Firmin: [grabs note from Andre] 20,000 francs?
Madame Giry: Perhaps you can afford more? With the Vicomte as your patron?
Firmin: Madame, I had hoped to make that announcement public tonight when the Vicomte was to join us for the gala. But obviously we shall now have to cancel, as it appears we have lost our star. A full house, Andre. We shall have to refund a full house!
Madame Giry: Christine Daae could sing it, sir.

Madame Giry: His only child. Orphaned at seven, when she came to live and trained in the ballet dormitories.
