I wonder if she really is married to that Mr. Zelli.
-As long as they pay the rent, what do you care?
She's a character. She's a type. They have their little hour, and then we hear no more about them.
Where did she come from? Does anybody know?
-Somewhere rather vague and exotic. Martinique? Could that be right? Anyway, her mother's supposed to be a West Indian.
That means she's a Creole.
- What is a Creole?
I thought it was a way of cooking chicken.
I hate all that kind of thing, astral bodies and all the rest of that.
-Astral bodies is philosophy.
They arrest everyone - except the criminals.
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.
Women like Lois, who've always had money, just don't understand what it's like for somebody like me, who've never had any.
You know lots of girls make extraordinary marriages. You know, for all sorts of reasons. But the time comes when you must out loose. Can't you see that?
-No. I can't.
You're a very tiresome child. You'll be all right. You'll row your little boat along, but if you try to help your husband, you are done.
You see, Michel, men feel disgusted by what they do, and so they drink, take drugs and are forever changing partners.
- What about women?
Oh, that's quite different. They can stay happy with each other because they only do what is beautiful.
♪ I need a good-time huggin'
♪ Good-time kissin' man
♪ Don't want a part-time lover
♪ Want a good-time huggin'
♪ Full-time lovin' man ♪
Your friend's in a hurry.
- She's Creole. She's a bit strange.
Do you think I'm the maid to be made love to every time the mistress's back is turned?
I must tell you that you misunderstand Lois utterly. You will persist in judging us by the standards of the awful life you've lived.
Can't you see you're in a different world now? You're not going to be letdown. You're with friends.
You have friends and you lose them. It's not so funny, you know?
We must keep up appearances. We must play the game.
It's my fault for getting involved with these neurasthenics. But it's not I who seek them out. They who find me. It's as if they sensed a weakness in me that... they fasten on to.
I find - don't you - that married people often have strange relationships? One thinks they're on the point of breaking up, and then it turns out they're thicker than ever.
Really, don't you think - honestly - don't you think women are truly superior beings? I only happen to think of my own parents. Father, very charming and all that, but weak, shiftless. Oh, we children were on Mother's side, absolutely. I suppose that's made me the way I am. I can't bear to see a woman taken advantage of, whether it's you or Lois or... whoever.
Why is love like Rasputin?
-I haven't the faintest idea.
Because you can... poison it... and you can stab it... and you can knock it down in the mud. And it will always get up again.
You've made a mistake, Madame. I'm not the type to sit and wait. I've had to long enough. I've never shared a woman in my life, and now to have to share with someone like that.
Some of us have to put up with things.
-I wouldn't. I'm used to living in a decent way, among decent people.
Can't you see that this man, who is at the end of his love, this bag of bluff, he just wants you as a sort of dessert to finish off his meal?
You can call me conservative or traditionalist if you like, but I believe in the family... parents and grandparents, grandchildren, children. Nowadays people live in a dirty way. There is no tradition. There is nothing beautiful.
