I'll rapture my cape and...

My cape

A thousand crowns!

How do I get out of here?

By the end of my foot.

I endure no such insult|from any man.

Rapture and endure my sword in your belly|at the Louvre.

Name the hour.




You embarrass me.

Aramis, don't tell me|there is no Lady in your life?

My life is dedicated to things|of the spirit,

not of the flesh.

My habit may be that|of a musketeer,

my habits are not.

You sir!

Who, me?

Yes, you!


I was addressing you sir.

What is your hurry?

No, hurry at all sir. Oh, that's better.

Come on, that's enough.

Now tell me.

Do I look like a man who|spends his time with the ladies.

Well, if you don't sir,

then Paris must sigh|with the Ladies sighs.

That's not what I asked.

These gentlemen insist that|I waste my time with the Ladies.

I cannot conceive, sir.

That in the company of a Lady,

you would waste a single moment.


Take your heel,|before I take your throat.

Monsieur Aramis, your language.

Would you care to|object to my language

behind the Louvre at one o'clock?

Yes sir.

Couldn't we make it at two?

Well, you are in good time.

Where are your seconds?

Oh, I have no seconds|monsieur Athos.

I only arrived in Paris|last night.

What a pity.

To arrive in Paris on one day

and to be killed on the next.

Oh, there is no hurry,|my second hasn't arrived yet.

With all respect sir.

Would it be proper|if we didn't wait?

You see, I have|a similar appointment in an hour.

That is, if I survive this one.

No, just as you say.

But don't worry about it,|you won't survive.

You know, you're quite a fellow.

Your first day in Paris|and two duels.


I have another one an hour later.

Oh no.

Are these your seconds?

Athos,|this is not the man you fight?
