: That's *my* chair you're sitting in, Fouche. Fouché
: I just wanted to see how it fits. Maximilian Robespierre
: Danton liked to sit in that chair, too. Fouché
: And to think that he had supper with us only last night. It's amazing how fast you lose friends these days. Maximilian Robespierre
: And you never know who's next on the list, Fouche. Fouché
: It must be quite a thrill, making out your death list every night.
: I can't decide whether to promote you or denounce you. Fouché
: Where in all Paris would you find anybody as disloyal, unscrupulous, scheming, treacherous, cunning, or deceitful as I? Oh, you'd have to do some tall looking, Max.
: There's a man in Strasbourg who isn't afraid of anything. A man named Duval. Fouché
: Duval? Maximilian Robespierre
: You know him? Fouché
: No, but I know his record. Five hundred executions in a single month. That's almost as good as yours, Max. Maximilian Robespierre
: I've sent for Duval. He arrives at the Blue Goose Inn tonight. You go there and bring him to the bakery. I'll meet him there. Fouché
: How will I know him? Maximilian Robespierre
: As one snake to another, you'll smell each other out.
: You had a visitor, I see. Charles D'Aubigny
: All work and no play? Fouché
: I thought you enjoyed your work. Charles D'Aubigny
: The real pleasure of my work went out with the guillotine. It's all over too fast now. Even hanging, that lasts for a few moments. No, Citizen Fouche. What this country needs is an elegant, slow death. Give a man four hours to die, it's worth watching. Fouché
: Let's try it sometime, shall we? Charles D'Aubigny
: Anyone in particular? Fouché
: Robespierre has a beautiful long list. We're gonna have some great times together, eh, Duval? Charles D'Aubigny
: Yes, I can hardly wait.
: One thing about Paris... never dull
: [D'Aubigny, leading Barras out a secret exit, is intercepted by Fouche and his men
] Citizen Barras, you're under arrest. Charles D'Aubigny
: He's my prisoner. Fouché
: Was. Charles D'Aubigny
: Is. Fouché
: I'm afraid you're a little confused, Duval. *I'm* the Chief of Police. Charles D'Aubigny
: You *were* Chief of Police. Charles D'Aubigny
: [whips out a document from inside his coat
] My authorization from Robespierre. Now, if you'll be so kind as to leave?
: There's a revolution going on... Don't stay out late.
: Robespierre planned on having statues built of himself. But all he leaves behind him... is stale bread. Napoleon Bonaparte
: The end is always being put to some use in France, citizen. The art of being a Frenchman is knowing what comes next. Fouché
: Have you any idea? Napoleon Bonaparte
: I am neither a Frenchman nor a politician. I am merely a soldier. Fouché
: Well, my friend, I must be off. Perhaps we shall meet again some time. Fouché
: [stops, turns around
] Oh, uh, by the way, I don't believe I got your name. Napoleon Bonaparte
: My name is Bonaparte. Napoleon Bonaparte. Fouché
: "Napoleon Bonaparte." I'll try to remember that.
: Get out of my chair. Fouché
: [gets up rather deliberately
] Is that the way to talk to your Chief of Secret Police? I'm ashamed of you, Max.
