MEG: Tell me, did you watch?
Tell me that you saw!
Did you hear the crowd?
the way they cheered?
I hope you're proud -
Did you like the new routine?
was it passable, I mean?
I can change a thing or two,
what should I do?
No, don't say it - I can guess,
but I promise I'll progress -
PHANTOM: Yes, of course, whatever you think is best.
MEG: Did the costume look ok?
Too revealing would you say?
People seemed to like the view.
GIRY: Meg, please!
MEG: I could show a bit more skin,
that would surely bring them in -
Can't you see that the master's at work?
Can't you see that his mind's somewhere else?
Can't you see that obviously he's thinking of things
more important than you?
PHANTOM: Careful, Madame. You're forgetting yourself.
Giry: Don't you see he forgot what this is?
Opening day, big deal, what's the fuss?
Our success means naught, I guess,
compared to the things that the master must do.
PHANTOM: That's quite enough!
GIRY: Christine! Christine!
GIRY: Meg, leave. Now.
In Paris, when the mob surrounded you,
who was there? We were there!
Where was she, when the lawmen hounded you?
Gone, long gone. We stayed on!
Who concealed you safe away,
smuggled you up to Calais?
Found a freighter out of France -
PHANTOM: I don't see the problem.
This is ancient history.
GIRY: And once here,
when the sideshow hired you,
who stood by? Meg and I.
While they kept you on display,
who kept working night and day?
Who gave you their very lives?
And who helped you buy that sideshow?
Who helped you finance your schemes?
Who wouldn't quit 'til your act was a hit,
and your hit could become your dream?
Who plied the politicians,
lured investors and the press?
No, not her!
And who stayed with you,
helped you and advised you?
We stayed with you,
loved and idolized you.
She betrayed you,
shunned you and despised you!
She chose Raoul, chose his beauty and youth!
It's long past time you faced up to - !
You'll be repaid as I promised you would.
Now, if you've anything else left to say...?
Yes you fled from my face once before,
but Christine, what we shared
even you can't ignore,
I'll be no longer denied!
I'll have you back by my side,
My sweet Christine!
And come what may,
I swear somehow, someway,
I will hear you sing once more!
