Raoul: [sung] What you heard was a dream and nothing more.
Christine: [sung] Yet in his eyes, all the sadness of the world. Those pleading eyes, that both threaten and adore...

Raoul: Christine forgive me, please forgive me. I did it all for you and all for nothing!

Raoul: Say you love him, and my life is over!

Christine: Raoul, I've seen him! Can I ever forget that sight? Can I ever escape from that face? So distorted, deformed, it was hardly a face...

Raoul: What you heard was a dream and nothing more.

Raoul: [angryly] Why make her lie to you to save me?

Raoul: You know I do.

Raoul: No more talk of darkness. Forget these wide-eyed fears, I'm here. Nothing can harm you. My words will warm and calm you. Let me be your freedom. Let daylight dry your tears. I'm here, with you, beside you, to guard you and to guide you.

The Phantom of the Opera (1989)
Hawkins: Do you believe in God, Mr. Dutton?
Richard: Yes.
Hawkins: Good. Because it's going to take a leap of faith for you to understand what I'm about to tell you. The Phantom is real. It has a name. Erik Destler.
Richard: But that's just a story.
Hawkins: I know the legend as well as you. He sold his soul to the devil so the world would love him for his talent. The devil had a price. He mutilated his face so terribly, that no one could stand to love him ever again.
Richard: And it's said the only way to kill the Phantom is to destroy his music.
Hawkins: I don't believe in phantoms or legends, Mr. Dutton, but I do believe in facts. And the fact is, this man - -this creature - -is still alive. Still alive and living under your opera.

Richard: [to Barton] Perhaps kicking your ass will brighten my spirits?
