Col. Von Strom: [to René] If you do not get us the uniforms back, you will be shot! Capt. Hans Geering: Up against the wall, with guns. Michelle Dubois: To avoid suspicion, you will be disguised as a small boy. Maria Recamier: But why can't I be disguised as a small girl? Michelle Dubois: Because you *are* a small girl. [first lines] René Artois: My name is Rene, this is my cafe. But at the moment, my life is one big problem. You see, I have to be nice to the Germans. They are my customers, they are winning the war, so if I am not nice to them, they will shoot me. I have to be nice to The Resistance. Edith Artois: Otherwise they will shoot him for being nice to the Germans! [his wife Edith leaves] René Artois: I have to be nice to my wife because if she finds out I'm having an affair with Yvette, she will shoot me. If Yvette finds out I'm having an affair with Maria, she will shoot me. Now, Otto Flick, the Gestapo officer, is having dinner in the back room. Upstairs are two German officers in their underwear because I have borrowed their uniforms to help two British airmen to escape. The pianist over there is in fact a forger for The Maquis. And the German officer at that table... [Camera pans over to Lt. Gruber, who smiles at Rene] René Artois: ...fancies me. And it is only Tuesday.
