Dialogue[edit]

Madame Lucien: [Referring to Gaudet] Did you see him, Daniel?
Daniel: Yes, Ma'am.
Madame Lucien: How is he?
Daniel: Not good, Madame. He'll be a crazy man before long unless he gets out of there.
Madame Lucien: If there only was some way I could help him!
Daniel: [He looks around to be sure no one is listening] There is a way, Madame... money, for the bell.
Madame Lucien: The bell?
Daniel: That's the word we convicts have for freedom.
Madame Lucien: Could he... could he buy his way to freedom?
Daniel: Money will buy anything on this island, Madame. It'll buy a man's way to the coast and a boat too with which he might reach the mainland.
Madame Lucien: How could we get the money to him?
Daniel: With more money, Madame. The guards at the pits are changed every day, but all of them can be bribed. It'll take a little time, that's all.

Guard Drugged by Gaudet: [Referring to Gaudet as he relieves his fellow guard] How's the star boarder?
Guard Accepting Bribe: Very quiet.
Guard Drugged by Gaudet: They all quiet down after a while.
