Quotes

Chabert: Action. Reaction.

Pierre Morhange: What about the solo?

Clément Mathieu: Which solo?

Pierre Morhange: My solo.

Clément Mathieu: Oh. Your solo. No, there's no solo. You don't have a bad voice but no-one's indispensible.

Pépinot enfant: I don't know any songs.

Clément Mathieu: Well, I'll teach you some. For the moment, I'll name you assistant choir master.

Clément Mathieu: [talking to Mondain] Sing!

Mondain: You won't like it.

Clément Mathieu: I don't care sing!

Mondain: Okay...

[singing]

Mondain: One Summer, I took out my nob, and gave myself a nice handjob...

[inhales as if to sing another line]

Clément Mathieu: [interrupting] Enough!

Mondain: [smiles and chuckles] Hmph!

Clément Mathieu: Baritone.

Mondain: What?

[gives Mathieu a look of surprise and confusion]

Clément Mathieu: I'm not making fun of you, you are a baritone...

[Mondain still confused]

Clément Mathieu: ...it means you sing in a low voice.

[Arriving at the school, Mathieu sees a small boy waiting by the gate]

Clément Mathieu: What are you doing?

Pépinot enfant: I'm waiting for Saturday. My father is coming to collect me.

Clément Mathieu: But it's not Saturday today.

Clément Mathieu: You see evil everywhere.

Chabert: Here? Yes.

Violette Morhange: Do you have children?

Clément Mathieu: No. Well, yes, I have 60.

Rachin: [firing Mathieu] Go to the devil!

Clément Mathieu: No. I'm leaving him behind!

Clément Mathieu: Never say never. Something's always worth trying.

[Chabert is dragging a boy off for punishment]

Clément Mathieu: What are you doing?

Chabert: He stole my watch. From my room.

Clément Mathieu: Where are you taking him?

Chabert: Dungeon.

Clément Mathieu: Wait!

Chabert: Why?

[Morhange's mother has come to visit him]

Clément Mathieu: [quietly] I didn't tell her last time that you were in detention, I told her you had a toothache and went to the dentist. Don't tell her I lied.

Clément Mathieu: [they've found the stolen money and a harmonica] You know Mondain was expelled because they thought he'd stolen the money.

Corbin: No, sir.

Clément Mathieu: No, that's right you didn't. But now I've told you. So what were you going to do with this money?

Corbin: If I tell you, do you promise not to tell anyone?

Clément Mathieu: Promise.

Corbin: I was going to use it to buy...

Clément Mathieu: To buy what?

Corbin: My Montgolfier balloon.
