Courfayrax: I love fireworks. Let me set it off. You're the leader. You have to stay here to welcome them.

Enjolras: He is.

Courfayrax: And mine too. Let him live.

Enjolras: Leave me alone! We have to!

[shoots the sergeant]

Champmathieu: [referring to the police and the court] They don't know their line of business too good. They don't believe nobody. I tell them I'm old Champmathieu, and they call me a liar. The other fellow says he's Jean Valjean, and they call for a doctor. But a fellow knows who he is don't he? They're a bit dense.

Le président du jury: [discussing Valjean nearby] No, justice won't be flouted like this. They've issued a warrant to rearrest the man at all costs.

Champmathieu: They talking about me? Did they change their minds? If they find another fellow to confuse me with, they might arrest me all over again! I'm leaving.
