Bishop (after telling the police Valjean was innocent of stealing the church's silverware): "Now don't forget -- don't ever forget, you've promised to become a new man." Jean Valjean: "Promise? Wha... why are you doing this?" Bishop: "Jean Valjean, my brother, you no longer belong to evil. With this silver, I have bought your soul. I've ransomed you from fear and hatred, and now I give you back to God."
Jean Valjean (as mayor, to Javert, who has confessed backstabbing Valjean): "I order you to forgive yourself."
Javert: "...Reform is a discredited fantasy. Modern science tells us that people are by nature, law breakers or law abiders. A wolf could wear sheep's clothing but he's still a wolf."
