Fantine: I had a dream my life would be so different from this hell I'm living. So different now from what it seemed... Now life has killed the dream I dreamed.

[Fantine has become a prostitute to support her daughter Cosette]
Fantine: Come on Captain, you can wear your shoes! Don't it make a change to have a girl who can refuse? Easy money, lying on a bed... Just as well they never see the hate that's in your head! Don't they know they're making love to one already dead?

Fantine: Come with me, where chains will never bind you. All your grief at last, at last behind you. Lord in Heaven, look down on him in mercy.
Jean Valjean: Forgive me all my trespasses and take me to your glory.
Fantine, Eponine: Take my hand, I'll lead you to salvation. Take my love, for love is everlasting.
Fantine, Jean Valjean, Eponine: And remember, the truth that once was spoken: to love another person is to see the face of God.

Fantine: He slept a summer by my side, he filled my days with endless wonder. He took my childhood in his stride, but he was gone when autumn came! And still I dream he'll come to me - that we will live the years together. But there are dreams that cannot be, and there are storms we cannot weather.

Fantine, Eponine: Take my hand, I'll lead you to salvation. Take my love, for love is everlasting.
Fantine, Eponine, Jean Valjean: And remember, the truth that once was spoken: To love another person is to see the face of God.

Fantine: But you don't understand, I'm a whore... and Cosette has no father.

Jean Valjean: Is it true, what I have done? To an innocent soul? Had I only known then...
Fantine: My daughter's close to dying. If there's a God above... He'd let me die instead...
Jean Valjean: In His name my task has just begun, I will see it done!

Fantine: There's a child who sorely needs me, Please M'sieur, she's but that high. Holy God, is there no mercy? If I go to jail she'll die!
