Ludovic: When I first moved to Paris, I lived near the Folies-Bergeres. I used to leave my door ajar, hoping a girl would wander in. No luck.

Marthe: When I was younger, I kept falling in love. I'd see a boy, I'd like him. I couldn't sleep. I'd be crazy about him, but I wouldn't let him touch me. I was so stupid.

Marthe: What a pretty hat.

Ludovic: It'd look great on you.

Ludovic: Then I'll buy it for you.

Marthe: Okay! I'll wear it home. The look on his face! What does your wife hate?

Ludovic: Flashy ties. She thinks they're vulgar.

Marthe: I'll buy you a hideous tie.

Ludovic: Great! I'll wear it to the clinic!

Pascal: I ate dinner. I've got to work tonight. Were you held up?

Marthe: No-no. I didn't want to work today. Ludovic and I went swimming. We had so much fun. Then we went to the movies. A Laurel and Hardy film.

Pascal: Laurel and Hardy?

Marthe: What's going to happen now?

Ludovic: We could say "tu" and "toi."

Marthe: That's not easy for me. But I promise I'll try.

Ludovic: Then two things. First we either sleep together or we don't.

Marthe: If we do, we'll have to lie, you to your wife and me to Pascal. Kind of pathetic, isn't it? Or we could do it and then say goodbye forever.

Ludovic: Then I'd rather not.

Ludovic: We'll keep it platonic and just enjoy being together.

Marthe: They'll be jeolous.

Ludovic: So what? Our conscience will be clear. The years will go by. We'll be a stunning couple. "Do you realize they've been together 20 years and have never had sex?" "No, really!"

Marthe: [laughs] What we have is fabulous. Will it stay that way?

Marthe: A year ago, I wanted to die. I spent a whole day trying to decide how. But I didn't have the guts.

Ludovic: You wanted to die? Why?

Marthe: I felt wretched. My job, my husband, my kid. Some days it all seems so stupid.

Pascal: [drunk, grabbing Marthe's mother] Your daughter's not bad, but you're fantastic. I love you! Men should marry their wives' mothers first.

Ludovic: We're going to leave.

Marthe: As you like.

Pascal: [observing from the other side of the room] That's funny. You two say "tu" and "toi." Karine and I use "vous."

Karine: I'll be all smiles for your sake. I've decided to stop boring people. You'll see. I can be funny. I was like that once, wasn't I?

Ludovic: Oui-oui.

Pascal: Talk to your sister. She'll listen to you. She has to understand that a man can only prove himself by sleeping with other women. I love Marthe. I want to keep her. What counts in life is family. I'm very family-oriented.

[Diane laughs]

Pascal: She makes a show of her affair. What kind of example is that for our son? I did it in secret. In secret, it's okay.

[Diane laughs]

Pascal: It's about decency!
