The Earrings of Madame de... (1953)
Comtesse Louise de...: [praying for her lover who is about to go on a duel with her husband] Save him, dear saint. You know that we were guilty in thought only. And what are thoughts? Will you save him, my dear saint? I thank you in advance. Blessed be your name in heaven as on earth. Amen.
Général André de...: Unhappiness is our own invention. At times I'm sad that I lack the imagination for it.
Comtesse Louise de...: I don't love you, I don't love you...
Général André de...: [Remy shows a pair of earrings] What's that?
Monsieur Rémy: I couldn't believe she'd sell them without your knowledge.
Général André de...: Sell them?
Monsieur Rémy: I thought that by buying them...
Général André de...: What are you saying, Monsieur Remy?
Monsieur Rémy: I thought I was doing both of you a favor.
Général André de...: I don't follow, Monsieur Remy. I sometimes do favors for others but I avoid letting others do them for me.
Monsieur Rémy: A good policy.
Général André de...: Our marital happiness is as we are: it is only superficially that it is superficial.
Général André de...: To please you, I forced myself to play a role I do not like.
Général André de...: [Angrily, as the jeweler, Monsieur Remy, tries to sell him the wife's earrings for a fourth time] Don't bother me with those infernal earrings!
