Quotes

Le narrateur: [During the dance sequence] Now is the time for a digression in which to describe our heroes' feelings. Arthur keeps watching his feet, but his mind's on Odile's mouth and her romantic kisses. Odile is wondering if the boys notice her breasts moving under her sweater. Franz thinks of everything and nothing. He wonders if the world is becoming a dream or if the dream is becoming the world.

Le narrateur: What's that big building? asked Odile. The Louvre. The whitewash is great, she said. That guy deserves a medal.

Franz: Isn't it strange how people never form a whole?

Odile: In what way?

Franz: They never come together. They remain separate. Each goes his own way, distrustful and tragic. Even when they're together, in big buildings, or in the street. Don't feel like talking?

Odile: No.

Franz: [Reading the newspaper to Arthur] She treated me like a butler, said the lumberjack, husband of the vanished countess. The police think it's murder, but Roger says 'It's an elopement.' Futile search in bedroom slippers.
