Lois Heidler: I hate people who try to get by with nothing but their sensitivity.
Pierre Schlamovitz: Nowadays, people live in a dirty way. There's no tradition. There's nothing beautiful.
Marya 'Mado' Zelli: You've got to take me with you. Away from them. Please help me.
Stephan Zelli: You must think I'm Jesus Christ.
Guy: Why is love like Rasputin? Because you can poison it. And you can stab it! And you can knock it down in the mud. But it will always get up. Don't you think that's good? Don't you think that's funny? Love will not die. It simply will not die. Just like Rasputin.
Stephan Zelli: [after Marya avoided his kiss] I don't blame you.
Marya 'Mado' Zelli: Will you just be kind to me for a little?
Stephan Zelli: A year in jail doesn't make a man appetizing.
H.J. Heidler: You just want to shut me off and shut me in. Make me into a tame husband.
Lois Heidler: As if anyone could do that.
H.J. Heidler: [to Lois] I'm not interested in being kind to anyone. I'm interested in them. In character. In forms of life. You should've married a stockbroker and stayed with him in South Kensington.
Madmoiselle Chardin: Every place can be nice, with a nice friend.
