"Great Performances: Les Misérables in Concert (#24.10)" (1995)
Enjolras: It is time for us all all to decide who we are... Do we fight for the right to a night at the opera now? Have you asked of yourselves what's the price you might pay? Is it simply a game, for rich young boys to play? The colour of the world is changing, day by day... Red - the blood of angry men, black - the dark of ages past, red - a world about to dawn, black - the night that ends at last!

Marius, Grantaire, Enjolras, Combeferre, Feuilly, Joly, Lesgles, Courfeyrac: Red: the blood of angry men! Black: the dark of ages past. Red: the world about to dawn... Black: the night that ends at last!

Enjolras: One more day before the storm...
Marius: Do I follow where she goes?
Enjolras: ...at the barricades of freedom!
Marius: Shall I join my brothers there?
Enjolras: When our ranks begin to form...
Marius: Do I stay, and do I dare?
Enjolras: ...will you take your place with me?

Enjolras: With all the anger in the land - how long before the Judgment Day, before we cut the fat ones down to size? Before the barricades arise?

[During the last battle at the barricades]
Enjolras: Let others rise to take our place, until the Earth is free!

Enjolras: For your presence of mind, for the deed you have done, I will thank you Monsieur when our battle is won.
Jean Valjean: Give me no thanks Monsieur, there's something you can do.
Enjolras: If it is in my power.
Jean Valjean: Give me the spy Javert, let me take care of him!
Javert: The law is inside out, the world is upside down!
Enjolras: Do what you have to do, the man belongs to you!
[to the others]
Enjolras: The enemy may be regrouping. Hold yourselves in readiness! Come on my friends, back to your positions, the night is falling fast!
Jean Valjean: [to Javert] We meet again.
Javert: You've hungered for this all your life! Take your revenge... How right you should kill with a knife!
Jean Valjean: You talk too much. Your life is safe in my hands!
Javert: Don't understand.
Jean Valjean: Get out of here.
Javert: Valjean, take care, I'm warning you...
Jean Valjean: Clear out of here!
Javert: Once a thief, forever a thief. What you want you always steal. You would trade your life for mine? Yes, Valjean, you want a deal. Shoot me now for all I care. If you let me go beware, you'll still answer to Javert!
Jean Valjean: You are wrong, and always have been wrong. I'm a man, no worse than any man. You are free! And there are no conditions, no bargains or petitions; there's nothing that I blame you for. You've done your duty, nothing more. If I come out of this alive, you'll find me at number fifty-five Rue Plumet. No doubt our paths will cross again. Go.

Grantaire: Red...
Marius: I feel my soul on fire!
Grantaire: Black...
Marius: My world if she's not there!
Marius, Grantaire, Enjolras, Combeferre, Feuilly, Joly, Lesgles, Courfeyrac: Red...
Marius: The color of desire!
Marius, Grantaire, Enjolras, Combeferre, Feuilly, Joly, Lesgles, Courfeyrac: Black...
Marius: The color of despair!

Enjolras: Let's give them a screwing they'll never forget!

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!


Les Misérables (1934)
Enjolras: [referring to Pop Mabeuf, who has just been shot down] Now, citizens, may each of you fight for this dead old man as he would for his own living father.

Enjolras: He makes no vain sacrifice who fights for a cause. All here are ready to die so that our brothers may live as free men. Liberty... sweet liberty... come fight with those who defend you.

Enjolras: Dear friends, we're going to die down to the last man. But our deaths will stop nothing. Our example will serve the cause. Others will finish what we've begun. Long live the republic! Fire when I five the signal. Then I'll blow up the barricade.
Courfayrax: I love fireworks. Let me set it off. You're the leader. You have to stay here to welcome them.
Enjolras: If you like.

Enjolras: [on Jean Valjean] Who is he?
Grantaire: I don't know. A man who saves others.

Courfayrax: Aiming at that sergeant whose face you can't see? These young artillery officers are well educated. He has a father and mother. He can't be more than 25. He could be your brother.
Enjolras: He is.
Courfayrax: And mine too. Let him live.
Enjolras: Leave me alone! We have to!
[shoots the sergeant]

Enjolras: ...At the barricades of freedom!
Marius: Shall I join my brothers there?
Enjolras: When our ranks begin to form...
Marius: Do I stay and do I dare?

Joly: Marius, wake up! What's wrong today? You look as if you've seen a ghost.
Grantaire: Some wine and say what's going on!
Marius: A ghost, you say? A ghost, maybe. She was just like a ghost to me. One minute there, then she was gone.
Grantaire: I am agog! I am aghast! Is Marius in love at last? I've never heard him "ooh" and "aah"! You talk of battles to be won, and here he comes like Don Juan. It is better than an opera!
Enjolras: It is time for us all to decide who we are. Do we fight for the right to a night at the opera now? Have you asked of yourself what's the price you might pay? Is this simply a game for a rich young boy to play? The colors of the world are changing day by day! Red, the blood of angry men! Black, the dark of ages past! Red, a world about to dawn! Black, the night that ends at last!

Javert: Listen, my friends, I have done as I said. I have been to their lines, I have counted each man. I will tell what I can. Better beware, they have armies to spare. And our danger is real, we will need all our cunning to bring them to heel.
Enjolras: Have faith! If you know what their movements are, we'll spoil their game. There are ways that a people can fight. We shall overcome their power!
Javert: I have overheard their plans, there will be no attack tonight. They intend to starve you out, before they start a proper fight. Concentrate their force, hit us when it's light.
Gavroche: Liar! Good evening, dear inspector! Lovely evening, my dear! I know this man, my friends, his name's Inspector Javert! So don't believe a word he says, because none of it's true. This only goes to show what little people can do.
Courfeyrac: Bravo, little Gavroche, you're the top of the class.
Combeferre: So what are we going to do with this snake in the grass?
Enjolras: Take this man and throw him in the tavern in there. The people will decide your fate, Inspector Javert.
Javert: Shoot me now or shoot me later, every schoolboy to his sport! Death to each and every traitor, I renounce your people's court!


Les Misérables (1998)
Enjolras: You hurry back. After tomorrow, you can make love to her as a free man.
Marius: Maybe.

Enjolras: [referring to Javert] You kill him in the alley. We don't want his blood in here with ours.


Les Misérables (1935)
Enjolras: [inciting the crowd] We'll tear up the streets of Paris! If they've got bayonets, we've got knives!

Enjolras: [seeing an apparent stranger in the midst of the broiling student rebeels] Who are you?
Inspector Javert: [absentmindedly as he looks in the crowd for Valjean] What'd ya say?
Enjolras: Spy? Police!
Inspector Javert: I might be a spy, and I'm certainly the police.
[the students rush Javert and subdue him]
