Les Misérables (2012)
Marius: In my life, there is someone who touches my life. Waiting near...
Éponine: Waiting here...

Marius: [about Cosette] Eponine, find her for me!
Éponine: What will you give me?
Marius: Anything!
Éponine: Got you all excited now, but God knows what you see in her! Aren't you all delighted now?
[Marius offers her money]
Éponine: No, I don't want your money, sir.

Marius: Do I care if I should die now she goes across the sea? Life without Cosette means nothing at all... Would you weep, Cosette, should Marius fall. Will you weep, Cosette, for me?

Thénardier: Jean Valjean - the old con. You pay up and I'll say where he's gone.
Marius: [handing Thénardier money] Not so loud! Here's for you. God forgive us the things that we do.
Madame Thénardier: How's about some extra on a day so glad. Our little orphan girl, she hasn't done so bad. Raised in a convent, cash to spare - we want our share.
Thénardier: [Marius hands over yet more money to Madame Thénardier] Quite the little nun, ain't she!
Marius: [Marius punches Thénardier across the face. He falls through a door. Marius bends down to Thénardier who is almost unconscious] Where is he?
Thénardier: [cowardly] The convent.

Jean Valjean: Who am I?
Marius: You're Jean Valjean...

Marius: Oh, my friends! My friends, don't ask me what your sacrifice was for! Empty chairs at empty tables, where my friends shall sing no more.

Marius: Eponine, you're the friend who has brought me here. Thanks to you, I am with one with the Gods and heaven is near! And I soar through a world that is new, that is free.
Éponine: [to herself] Every word that he says is a dagger in me. In my life, there has been no one like him anywhere. Anywhere where he is. If he asks, I'll be his.

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?

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!

Marius: A ghost, you say? A ghost, maybe. She was just like a ghost to me. One minute there, and she was gone!

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...

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]
