Cyrano de Bergerac (1950)
Cyrano de Bergerac: Very well, let the old fellow come now. He shall find me on my feet sword in hand.
Roxane: Cyrano!
Le Bret: He's delirious.
Cyrano de Bergerac: I can see him now - he grins. He is looking at my nose, that skeleton. You there - who are you? A hundred against one, eh? I know them now, my ancient enemies...
[Cyrano thrusts his sword at the empty air]
Cyrano de Bergerac: Falsehood! There! There! Prejudice! Compromise! Cowardice! What's that? Surrender? No! Never! Never!
[He slashes his sword wildly]
Cyrano de Bergerac: Ah, you too, Vanity? I knew you would overthrow me in the end. No! I fight on! I fight on! I fight on!

Cyrano de Bergerac: Think of me./ Me whom the plainest woman would despise./ Me with this nose of mine that marches on/ Before me by a quarter of an hour./Whom should I love? Why of course it must be/ The woman in the world most beautiful.
Le Bret: Most beautiful?
Cyrano de Bergerac: In these eyes of mine, beyond compare.
Le Bret: Wait! Your cousin - Roxane!
Cyrano de Bergerac: Yes. Roxane.

Le Bret: Look at me, twenty years a captain, while others, who know only how to deploy their forces at court, now dangle a marshal's baton.
Cyrano de Bergerac: [smiling] Hmm... , well, someday I will avenge you too.

Le Bret: Alone, yes, but why go about making enemies?

Le Bret: [Earlier, Cyrano had arranged to meet Roxanne at Ragueneau's, tomorrow at 7. Now he promises to escort Ragueneau home & protect him from armed ruffians hired by the Comte de Guiche] Why are you risking your life for this pastry cook?
Cyrano de Bergerac: First, because this pastry cook is a friend of mine. Second, because this pastry cook is also a poet. And most important, if anything should happen to this pastry cook, tomorrow morning at 7, his shop will be closed.


Cyrano de Bergerac (1990)
Ragueneau: No Cyrano. I lose my bet.
Le Bret: So much the better.
Audience: Montfleury! Montfleury!
Montfleury: Happy he... who far from court and city... Ah, how good... breathes the essence of the vernal wood, And who, when the breeze sings melodies...
Cyrano: Rogue! Didn't I order you off for a month?
Montfleury: What? Who's that?
Le Bret: Cyrano!
Ragueneau: I win!
Cyrano: King of fools. Off the stage!
Montfleury: Monsieur...

Cyrano: Discontinue, unless he needs disembowelling! Off with him!
Le Bret: Monsieur...
