[describing how his puppets' personalities are reflections of his own]

Paul Berthalet: I am Carrot Top: confident, clever, capable of running his life and yours, and everybody else's; and I'm Golo the Giant: cowardly, stupid, longing to be loved, clumsy and in need of comforting; and I'm Marguerite too: vain, jealous, obsessed with self, looking at my face in the mirror - are my teeth nice? Is my hair growing thin? And I'm Reynaldo: the thief, the opportunist, full of compromise and lies like any other man. I have in me all these things.

Paul Berthalet: That child's an idiot.

Jacquot: She's not an idiot. And she isn't a child any longer. She's beginning to realize the fact that there's cruelty in the world and she's starting to protect herself from it.

Jacquot: What the devil is the matter with you? You're in love with the girl and she's in love with someone else. This sort of thing happens all the time; people don't *die* of love. You'll recover... But meanwhile can't you be civilized about it?

Paul Berthalet: I love all people.

Paul Berthalet: It's a good thing to be in love, I'm told. I'm told it's a matter - not of what you love, but of how you love. Not a little of what you really want, is better than large quantities of what you don't. As for me, I want it all. Refusal to compromise! A sign of immaturity, you know.

M. Tonit: We can't make up our minds whether she's a superb actress or you're a Svengali.
