Les Miserables (1978 TV Movie)
Bishop Myriel: [to Valjean] And I promise you, there is more joy in heaven over the face of an repented sinner than the white silk robes of a hundred just men.
Jean Valjean: [Sister Simplice has told her first lie in order to save Valjean] God bless you, sister.
Sister Simplice: I lied!
Jean Valjean: Then may this falsehood be placed to your credit in paradise.
Javert: I should have known. The scoundrel joins up with the fools.
Gillenormand: I've been a fool.
Jean Valjean: Oh sir, we're all fools for most of our lives. It's unavoidable.
Javert: There is no God. There is only the law. Good and evil do not exist outside the law.
Cosette (adult): Why do the police want to arrest them?
Jean Valjean: Because they're revolutionary - they want to destroy the monarchy.
Cosette (adult): Is the monarchy bad?
Jean Valjean: Well, it doesn't listen to the poor; it never has. But then, it commands the French Army. To fight it is useless.
Cosette (adult): Will he - will they come back to the park?
Jean Valjean: I doubt if anything will stop them until they're killed.
Javert: Why did you let me go?
Jean Valjean: I had no choice.
Jean Valjean: Once, many years ago, a remarkable man bought my soul. He removed from it all evil thoughts and gave it to God.
Javert: Well, go on. Take your revenge. I am waiting.
[Valjean draws a knife]
Javert: Oh, a knife. Of course, that suits a cutthroat better.
Jean Valjean: Turn around!
[Javert does so, and Valjean cuts his restraints]
Jean Valjean: You're free. Begone.
Javert: You madden me. I would sooner be killed!
Jean Valjean: I said begone!
Javert's Aide: We've covered the entire quartier Poullard, here.
Javert: Cover it again. And again. And then the quartier Mouffetard.
Javert's Aide: You'll find that most thieves are not attracted to the quartier Mouffetard.
Javert: Jean Valjean is not "most thieves". Do it.
Javert: I believe I could prove it in court.
Police Prefect: You believe? That is all?
Javert: He is Jean Valjean, no question.
Police Prefect: Mm. For your own sake, monsieur, you had better be right.
Jean Valjean: I knew nothing of what you told me.
[handing her a silver franc]
Jean Valjean: Here. This is to help with your child.
Fantine: You know nothing of me. I am a stranger to you.
Jean Valjean: It was only a stranger who held out a hand to me once. Let me know if you have any more trouble.
Javert: [after Valjean's second attempt to escape Toulon] It is the decision of the Military Tribunal that ten years be added to your sentence. I am requested by law to inquire if you have anything to say, um, for yourself.
Jean Valjean: [softly] Some day...
Javert: Speak up!
Jean Valjean: [clearing his throat] Some day, I'll kill you.
[the guards seize him]
Javert: Six months in the hole for disrespect.
[Valjean spits at him in disgust]
Javert: Take him away.
Bishop Myriel: Madame Magliore, I have wrongfully held back this silver which belongs to the poor. And who was this person? Evidently a poor man.
