Pierre: What an idiot I am! I wanted to do right. "To do right." What a hoax!
Belle: I don't understand.
Pierre: I wanted to give you everything, but I have nothing.
Belle: We're together, that's everything.
Pierre: But where? Where are we?
Belle: Outside it all.
Advice to Pierre from his publisher:
Marguerite: You worry me, Pierre. Your appearance... your conversation... I barely recognize you. This need to spit the world's sinister truth in its face is as old as the world itself! You know what Musil wrote: "One can't resent one's era without being swiftly punished by it." Be careful! You dream of writing a mature work but your charm lies in your thorough immaturity! You dream of setting fire to God knows what, of rising above your times like a dazzling cloud, leaving everyone terrified and admiring. But you weren't born for that, Pierre! You don't even believe it yourself.
Pierre: I was at the cafe with the group's leader. He'll be a good model for my novel. He knows it well... the great lie... hidden behind everything.
Lucie: I've come to live with you. I must be here.
Pierre: That's impossible.
Lucie: They think I'm mad but I'm not. Let me live near you. I know nothing but I can guess... like a sacrifice. I won't ask your secrets. I'll keep my feelings hidden. You're in danger, I have to be here. We'll say you're my cousin. Let's try it. I want only you.
Belle: You! I am not enough for you?
Pierre: Don't be afraid... She's been very ill. She'll stay with us a while. Poor thing, she imagines I'm a saint.
Belle: Either you've told her our secret, or...
Pierre: No! The secret's still a secret.
Belle: Then she's mad! And you, Pierre?
Pierre: You're my sister... whom I adore.
