The bar. Evening. A few days later. As the curtain comes up, we hear dance music, laughter.
HELENE is dancing with ROBERT. CHRISTINE is dancing with an American Sergeant. NME. VAUQUIN is sitting with MME. STEIN and SOPHIE VAUQUIN. BOUBARD is behind the bar, pouring cognac for an American Lieutenant.
I've been saving this cognac ever since the beginning of the war for celebrations. Long live the Americans!
Long live the Americans! (All drink, smile at him. To the SERGEANT) Johnny, having a good time?
She dances like a girl from Pasadena, California.
Is California America?
Don't kid me, baby. You know better than that.
