Steve McQueen: Henri 'Papillon' Charriere
Papillon : Hey you bastards, I'm still here.
Judge in Dream : I accuse YOU... of a WASTED LIFE!
Papillon : Guilty... guilty... guilty...
Papillon : We're something, aren't we? The only animals that shove things up their ass for survival.
Papillon : [to Dega] Me they can kill... You they own!
Maturette : I'll do what you ask, on one condition: You keep your money and you take me with you.
Papillon : No.
Maturette : I'm the only one who can get you out of here.
Papillon : You're...
Maturette : I know. I'm a queer, a fairy, a poof, huh? But there's one thing you forgot. You may have been framed, as you say you were... but I wasn't. Between the two of us... I'm the one who's killed a man, not you.
Papillon : Okay.
Dega : Well, it now seems quite possible that until we get to a decent jail with bribeable guards, I may stand in some need of... rather close physical protection.
Papillon : That depends on how long you want to live.
Dega : For a long time.
Papillon : Then you got a problem.
Dega : Well, I presume that you have some, uh, goals, some particular need that outrates all the others. I mean, if so... may I aslk what it is?
Papillon : Money!
Dega : For what?
Papillon : Escape.
Dega : Very good. You keep me alive until we land in Guyana, and I'll underwrite any escape you care to arrange.
Papillon : Escape for me, not for us!
Dega : Oh, of course. I, I, I...
Dega : . I have no intention, uh, of even attempting to escape - ever!
Papillon : Done!
