CITY OF PARIS -
RESTORATION OF THE PONT-NEUF
PARIS' OLDEST BRIDGE,
IN HAZARDOUS CONDITION,
WILL BE CLOSED
TO VEHICLES AND PEDESTRIANS
REOPENING: SUMMER 1991
Only live once. Right? Got one life and wanna live it. You gotta choose, see?
Cops pick you up?
Been in the shelter?
Asshole... Here, go sleep. Some guy's bedded down over there. Can't figure how he got in. Tomorrow, out on his ass!
Ever seen the sea?
Come on! The sea! The sea!
Look... a woman who sleeps rough gets beat up, raped, periods don't come, drinks to forget till she's numb! Life outside, it's right for me, for Alex. But impossible for you! You have to go and... LIVE!
So, you weren't always (a bum)?
-No. Steady job... a home... not bad-looking. Ladies called me "Camembert".
Because of the smell?
-No, because I was ripe and ready.
My eyes are going. Listen to me... When I try to paint, this eye here bulges out of my head, like a snail.
Somebody loves you. If you say:
"The sky is white," he'll say:
"But the clouds are black."
Then we'll know we're in love.
We'll drink together, but not your way... like an old wino. I want to be drunk with you, so I can see you laugh.
Don't limp anymore.
-You see, nothing's... irremediable. Went to the bridge last night... All repaired. Now it's solid.
Why'd you try to forget me?
-Never told you about me... we led such a strange life...
Why'd you never come to see me?
-I waited. I'm afraid of us... at times often... You're weak...
No... Can you love me?
-Yeah, like before, but not the same.
No one... can teach me... to forget.
You know, I'm ready to live in the dark. Because, right now, the world's just a lot of... blurry dancing flames... and I'm sick of it! You'll be there? My white cane? My seeing-eye dog? Playing dog? Already can't see small things. They're the most exciting. A little smile's invisible. Got to make it big... Make it all big for me.
Last line: “Paris can stay in bed.” or was it "Let Paris rot!"
Know the happy man story? Two guys in a bar... really down... wonder if they fxck enough to be happy. So, the first one says, "Me, I get it every two weeks."
The second one says, "Me, once a month." Not a hell of a lot... But there's this third guy at the bar, all alone, huge grin on his face... ear to ear. Guys wonder... why's he so happy? So... not easy... they ask how often he has sex. The guy, beaming, says, "My friends...I make love every three years."
"What? Every three years? So why're you so happy?"
And the third guy says, "Because tonight's the night!"
