Madame de Volanges: Did I show you the cabinet I gave Cecile? It's an exquisite piece. Well, I told her: "You can lock all your secrets in there." Do you know what she said? "Maman, you know it will never be locked." Isn't that the sweetest thing a daughter can say to her mother?

Mertuil: Oh! Yes, yes.

Madame de Volanges: Well, it's locked.

Mertuil: Oh.

Madame de Volanges: I have a duplicate key of course.

Mertuil: Of course.

Madame de Volanges: Cecile! Martine!

Martine: Yes, Madame?

Madame de Volanges: Where is Cecile?

Martine: [nervously] Cecile? She's... she... she has...

Madame de Volanges: Where is she?

[Martine can't form an answer; Volanges, unable to find Cecile, rings for José]

Madame de Volanges: José, have you been at your post all night?

José: Yes, madame.

Madame de Volanges: Has anyone come in?

José: No, Madame.

Madame de Volanges: Martine?

Martine: [fearfully] Yes, Madame?

Madame de Volanges: Did she go and see that music teacher?

Martine: [hysterically] I don't know, Madame. She doesn't talk to me anymore. She only talks to Madame de Merteuil now. And she... she...

[Volanges turns to leave, Martine faints]

Baroness: Are you hinting that I could be unfaithful to my husband?

Valmont: Not now. But if you were alone...

Madame de Tourvel: Monsier Valmont, you simply don't understand women.

Baroness: You're right. Look, if a woman wants a little adventure, she doesn't need to be alone.

[looking straight at her husband]

Baroness: She can manage it perfectly well right under her husbands nose.

Mertuil: Why do you want to be a husband, when you can be a lover?

Danceny: Keep writing.

Mertuil: Why don't you leave all the boredom of marriage to Gercourt, and keep the excitement of love for yourself?

Madame de Rosemonde: Ah, my sweet girl. If I understand what these people have been saying, you have a dilemma.

Cecile: I do?

Madame de Rosemonde: Tell me, if it were up to you, would you rather marry that Monsieur de... eh...

Mertuil: Gercourt.

Madame de Rosemonde: Exactly, Gercourt. Or the other one? The one with the harp.

Cecile: Well, I... I... I'll do whatever my Maman wants me to do.

Valmont: But that is not what my aunt is asking you. Forget Maman. If you had the choice, who would you pick? You, yourself?

Cecile: Oh! I... I... I guess I would marry Monsieur de Gercourt, and... keep Monsieur Danceny for a lover?

Mertuil: [to Valmont] You must have a lot of courage, Visconte, to come here after you sent that lunatic harp teacher to kill me.
