[encouraging Nanette to make a play for the much older, but well-to-do, Henri] Mama Michaud: Love has its place -- but it puts no butter on the table. Nanette Michaud: Leon thinks only of his farm. But we, we could have a wonderful time in Paris, you and I. Pierre Michaud: A man your age isn't meant for marriage. Henri Cassin: I knew it was too good to be true. That much happiness just wasn't meant for me. Henri Cassin: Henri Cassin is no more. I caught him. I killed him.
