In 1969, Gaston broke Nancy's heart by marrying another woman, the daughter of a French duke.

      • Fabrice de Sauveterre: You kept me waiting. That is a very good sign.
        Linda: Sign of what?
        Fabrice de Sauveterre: That our affair will be happy, and last long.
        Linda: We are not having an affair.
        Fabrice de Sauveterre: My name is Fabrice. May I ask yours?
        Linda: Linda.
        Fabrice de Sauveterre: Linda - comme c'est jolie. With me, it usually lasts five years.

      • Fabrice de Sauveterre: Bonjour!
        Linda: Voulez-vous en aller? Je ne suis pas, une esclave blanche. Je suis la fille d'un très important lord anglais.
        Fabrice de Sauveterre: One does not have to be Sherlock Holmes to guess that.
        Linda: Why?
        Fabrice de Sauveterre: French ladies never, never sit crying on their suitcases at the Gare du Nord in the very early morning, while white slaves always have protectors, and it is only too clear that you are unprotected just now.
        Linda: My return ticket's expired.
        Fabrice de Sauveterre: Now? I invite you to luncheon with me, but first you must have a bath and rest and a cold compress on your face.
