"So why's it called 'Less Miserable' if they all die?"

And, at the stage door:

"So, waiting for anyone?"
"Oh, we don't know any of the actors. We're just waiting for *giggle* Captain Vest."
(I was utterly baffled for about ten seconds, then put it together with the sighs of "oh, he's so hot" and got it. And yes, they ambushed Victor Wallace and then left without talking to anyone else.)

I'm laughing so hard reading these quotes.

Well, my AP English class just finished reading the book, and I must say, there were some pretty amusing pronunciations. The worst was Javert pronounced with an a as in cat, with the 't' at the end also pronounced. There was also Eponine with long 'e' and long 'i' and Joly as jolly.

Weird pronounciations yes...I remember someone here saying a long time ago that they had a teacher that said Rue Plumet as "Rue Plummet, as in, a falling kangaroo"

A few weeks ago, from a small child just after the line 'General Lamarque is dead'...

"Is he the black man?"

It was perfectly timed. :lol:

Doesn't Kaho Shimada (sp?) pronounce it that way on the CSR? Not saying she's right but I'm certain she says it that way. (Yes, I realise that she spoke NO English.)

When does she say "Rue Plumet"? I'm stretching my memory, but I can't really think of a single instance where she says it.

I have a letter Mssr,
it's addressed to your daughter Cossette,
It's from a boy at the barricade sir,
at the Rue Du Plumet

That's Rue de Villette actually. Rue Plumet is where Cosette lives, Rue de Villette is where the barricade is situated...
