The Night Porter (1974)
Dirk Bogarde: Max
Max : [to Lucia] There are no lines to Frankfurt. Why did you come here? Hm? Why did you come? WHY did you come?
[angrily kicks a table away]
Max : Have you come to give me away? HAVE YOU?
Max : Did you? Answer!
[the pair fall over]
Max : Did you? Why'd you come? Why'd you come? Why? Why? WHY!
[Max and Lucia are laughing while caressing each other]
Max : Ah, no, no. Too fast, too fast. Too long. Too long.
Lucia : Oh, Max, Max...
Max : [stressful] Tell me, why'd you come? Tell me. Tell me!
Lucia : [screams] I WANT YOU!
Max : Tell me what to do. Tell me where to go. Tell me what to do.
Lucia : No...
Max : Tell me what to do!
Lucia : [laughing] No!
[they continue to kiss and caress each other]
Max : I love you so.
Max : [describing Lucia] My little girl...
Max : I met her again... my little girl.
Countess Stein : You mean, the little girl from then?
Max : [clears his throat] I found her again. I found her again. And no one must touch her!
Countess Stein : Who'd dream of touching her?
[Max gestures with his hands in objection]
Countess Stein : Oh, Max, be careful. Before she could testify against you, you should file her away.
Max : Oh... oh, no.
Countess Stein : But...
Max : No... I love her.
Countess Stein : [shakes her head] What a madman.
Max : She was my little girl...
[close to tears]
Max : She was very young.
Countess Stein : And now she's not.
Max : Yes. Yes, she... she's exactly the same... as she was for me.
Countess Stein : Oh, Max...
Max : As she was then!
Countess Stein : I've never seen you so much in love.
Max : [chocking up] I... I thought she was dead.
Countess Stein : What a romantic story.
[Max has handcuffed Lucia to a long chain attached to the bathroom]
Lucia : Why?
Max : So they can't take you away.
Lucia : Who?
Max : Klaus... Bert, Hans.
Max : It's nothing to laugh about.
Lucia : And if they come with a file?
Max : Then you fight.
[Lucia continues giggling]
Max : [angrily] DON'T LAUGH!
