"Great Performances: Les Misérables in Concert (#24.10)" (1995)
Cosette: A heart full of love... A night full of you - the words are old, but always true! O God, for shame, you did not even know my name.
Marius: Dear Mademoiselle, I was lost in your spell...

Cosette: In my life there are so many questions and answers that somehow seem wrong. In my life there are times when I catch in the silence the sigh of a faraway song, and it sings of a world that I long to see, out of reach, just a whisper away, waiting for me.

Jean Valjean: One day more. Another day, another destiny, this never-ending road to Calvary. These men who seem to know my crime will surely come a second time. One day more.
Marius: I did not live until today. How can I live when we are parted?
Jean Valjean: One day more.
Marius, Cosette: Tomorrow, you'll be worlds away, and yet with you, my world has started.
Eponine: One more day all on my own.
Marius, Cosette: Will we ever meet again?
Eponine: One more day of him not caring.
Marius, Cosette: I was born to be with you.
Eponine: What a life I might have known.
Marius, Cosette: And I swear, I will be true.
Eponine: But he never saw me there.
Enjolras: One more day before the storm.
Marius: Do I follow where she goes?
Enjolras: At the barricade of freedom.
Marius: Do I join my brothers there?
Enjolras: As our ranks begin to form.
Marius: Do I stay, and do I care?
Enjolras: Will you take your place with me?
[Chorus joins in]
Enjolras: The time is now, the day is here!
Jean Valjean: One day more!
Javert: One more day to revolution. We will nip it in the bud. I will join these little schoolboys. They will wet themselves with blood!
Jean Valjean: One day more!
Thenardier, Madame Thenardier: Watch 'em run amok. Catch 'em as they fall. Never know your luck when there's a free-for-all. Here, a little dip. There, a little touch. Most of 'em are goners, so they won't miss much!
[Chorus joins in]
Thenardier, Madame Thenardier: One day to a new beginning, raise the flag of freedom high. Every man will be a king, every man will be a king. There's a new world for the winning, there's a new world to be won. Do you hear the people sing?
Marius: My place is here. I'll fight with you!
Jean Valjean: One day more!
[everyone sings their previous verses simultaneously]
Jean Valjean: One day more!
[Verses continue]
Jean Valjean: Tomorrow, we'll be far away. Tomorrow is the judgment day.
Ensemble: Tomorrow we'll discover what our God in Heaven has in store. One more dawn, one more day, one day more!

Madame Thenardier: Now look who's here! The little madam herself! Pretending once again she's been 'so awfully good.' Better not let me catch you slacking! Better not catch my eye! Ten rotten francs your mother sends me! What is that going to buy? Now take that pail, my little 'Mademoiselle' And go and draw some water from the well! We should never have taken you in in the first place how stupid the things that we do! Like mother like daughter, the scum of the street. Still here, Cosette? Your tears will do you no good! I told you fetch some water from the well in the wood!
Young Cosette: Please do not send me out alone. Not in the darkness on my own!
Madame Thenardier: Enough of that, or I'll forget to be nice! You heard me ask for something, And I never ask twice!


Les Misérables (1998)
Cosette: I didn't breathe when you spoke. I was afraid I'd miss a word.

Cosette: Please tell me what this is all about, papa. Please, please tell me what this is. Please, what is it?
Jean Valjean: [stammering] I... I am a convict. When I was young... just your age I was very poor, I was starving. One day, I stood in front of the window. A window full of bread, there was just glass between me... and not being hungry anymore, it was so easy. So I broke it... and took what I wanted. Then they caught me... and put me in chains for almost 19 years. They did things to me... I can't tell you about it, and I did things, there in jail. Terrible things. I became an animal. They took my dignity, they took everything from me.


Les Misérables (2012)
Cosette: You will live, Papa you're going to live. It's too soon too soon to say goodbye.
Jean Valjean: Yes Cosette, forbid me now to die I'll obey. I'll try. On this page I write my last confession. Read it well when I at last am sleeping. It's the story of one who turned from hating - a man who only learned to love when you were in his keeping.

Young Cosette: There is a lady all in white, holds me and sings a lullaby, she's nice to hear and she's soft to touch, she says "Cosette, I love you very much."


Les Misérables (1935)
Jean Valjean: And me! Me! Have you nothing for me?
Cosette: But you're my father. I mean I always think of you as my father. I know you're not really, but, don't you see, with Marius, it's different. It isn't just that lovely sense of companionship I have with you. It's - it's - well, it's the way every girl feels for the man who's going to marry her! You always knew I should have to leave you one day, didn't you?
Jean Valjean: No one forgets that!


Les Misérables (1934)
Cosette: [as she and Valjean witness a convoy of convicts being taken to the penal colonies] But father... are they... still human?
Jean Valjean: Sometimes.
