"Great Performances: Les Misérables in Concert (#24.10)" (1995)
Ensemble: Master of the House...
Madame Thenardier: Master and a half!
Ensemble: Comforter, philosopher...
Madame Thenardier: Don't make me laugh!
Ensemble: Servant to the poor, butler to the great...
Madame Thenardier: Hypocrite and toady and inebriate!

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!

Madame Thenardier: "Master of the house?"... Isn't worth my spit! "Comforter, philosopher," and lifelong shit! Cunning little brain, regular Voltaire. Thinks he's quite a lover - but there's not much there... What a cruel trick of nature, landing me with such a louse. God knows how I've lasted, living with this bastard in the house!

Madame Thenardier: I used to dream that I would meet a prince, but God almighty, have you seen what's happened since? Master of the House? Isn't worth my spit! Comforter, philosopher, and lifelong shit. Cunning little brain, regular Voltaire; thinks he's quite a lover but *there's not much there*. What a cruel trick of nature, landing me with such a louse! God knows how I've lasted living with this bastard in the house.

Thenardier, Madame Thenardier: Masters of the land. Always get our share. Clear away the barricades and we're still there! We know where the wind is blowing, money is the stuff we smell, and when we're rich as Croesus, Jesus, won't we see you all in Hell!

Thenardier, Madame Thenardier: Masters of the land, always get our share, clear away the barricades and we're still there! We know where the wind is blowing - money is the stuff we smell! And when we're rich as Croesus, Jesus won't we see you all in Hell!

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 (2012)
Thénardier: Everybody raise a glass!
Madame Thénardier: Raise it up the master's arse!

Madame Thénardier: Wait a bit! Know that face! Ain't the world a remarkable place!
Thénardier: Men like me don't forget. You're the bastard that borrowed Colette!
Madame Thénardier: Cosette!
Thénardier: Whatever.
Jean Valjean: What is this? Are you mad? No, Monsieur, you don't know what you say!
Thénardier: You know me! I know you!
Madame Thénardier: And you pay what you due!
Thénardier: And you'll better dig deep!
Madame Thénardier: Grr, she doesn't come cheap!
Thénardier: Brujon!
Éponine: It's the police! Disappear! Run for it! It's Javert!

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.

Madame Thénardier: [to male customer] I used to dream that I would meet a prince, but God Almighty, have you seen what's happened since?
Thénardier: [defensive as others stare at him] What? What?
Madame Thénardier: Master of the house isn't worth my spit. Comforter, philosopher, and life-long shit. Cunning little brain; regular Voltaire. Thinks he's quite a lover, but there's not much there.
[All stare at his crotch]
Madame Thénardier: [pretending to cry] What a cruel trick of nature landed me with such a louse.
[She takes the man's purse while he's distracted]
Madame Thénardier: [suddenly cheering up] God knows how I've lasted living with this bastard in the house!

Thénardier: What to do? What to say? Shall you carry our little treasure away? What a gem! What a pearl! Beyond rubies is our little girl. How can we speak of debt? Let's not haggle for darling Colette.
Madame Thénardier: [whispering] Cosette.
Thénardier: [correcting himself] Cosette.

Javert: Another brawl in the square, another stink in the air. Was there a witness to this? Well, let him speak to Javert. Monsieur, these streets are not safe. We'll let these vermin beware, we'll see that justice is done. Look upon this fine collection, grown from underneath a stone. This swarm of worms and maggots would have picked you to the bone. I know this man over here, I know his name and his trade and on your witness, monsieur, I'll see him suitably paid. But where's the gentleman gone, and why on earth would he run?
Thénardier: You'll have a job to find him. He's not all he seems to be. And that girl he trails behind him is the child he stole from me.
Madame Thénardier: Yeah, and me.
Thénardier: Yeah, both of us.
Javert: Could it be he's that old jailbird, that the tide now washes in? Heard my name and started running, all the omens point to him.
Thénardier: In the... absence of a victim, dear inspector, may I go? And remember when you've knicked him, it was me what told you so.
Javert: Let the old man keep on running, I will run him off his feet. Everyone about your business, clear this garbage off the street.
