- 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.
