0:08:36:Well, it must be good for the muscles|of the... Must be good for the muscles.
0:08:41:I should think a dancer's muscles|would be like a strongman.

0:08:45:We try to combine slenderness|with strength.
0:08:47:Well, I've been dancing since I was 12.
0:08:50:I don't think the muscles|are overdeveloped.
0:08:52:Oh, no. No, no. Not in your case.
0:08:55:Of course, we have to train like athletes.|Madame believes in rigid discipline.

0:09:54:Shall we go now or wait for the next?
0:09:56:Oh, it's very tempting,|but I think we'd better go.
0:10:00:Shall I carry that?
0:10:01:No, no. I only drop it in emergencies.
0:10:03:Well, I hope I'm around|the next time it happens.

0:10:09:- And you?|- We may go to America.

0:10:38:- I don't know any...|- I wish I could have seen the...
0:10:42:- What were you going to say?|- I wish I could have seen the ballet.
0:10:45:I'm sure it would have been|a pleasant memory in the trenches.
0:10:48:What were you going to say?
0:10:50:Oh, it's just that I don't know anyone|at the front...
0:10:53:...and I'm afraid it'll bring it home|to me now, knowing you.
0:10:56:- Not that I really know you, of course.|BOY: Here you are, governor.
0:11:04:Thank you very much.
0:11:07:I hope you get back safe and sound.
