The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return.

We're creatures of the underworld. We can't afford to love.

We have a dance in the brothels of Buenos Aires. It tells the story of a prostitute and a man who falls in love with her. First, there is desire. Then passion...! Then, suspicion. Jealousy! Anger! Betrayal! When love is for the highest bidder, there can be no trust. Without trust, there is no love. Jealousy! Yes, jealousy...will drive you, mad!!!

The Moulin Rouge. A night club, a dance hall and a bordello. Ruled over by Harold Zidler. A kingdom of night time pleasures, where the rich and powerful came to play with the young and beautiful creatures of the underworld. The most beautiful of all these was the woman I loved. Satine. A courtesan, she sold her love to men. They called her the 'Sparkling Diamond', and she was the star of the Moulin Rouge. The woman I loved is... dead.

This woman is yours now. I've paid my whore. I owe you nothing. And you are nothing to me. (crying slightly) Thank you for c-curing me of my r-ridiculous obsession with love!

Can't fall in love? But a life without love, that-that-that's terrible!

Above all things I believe in love. Love is like oxygen- love is a many splendored thing- love lifts us up where we belong! All you need is love!

Days turned into weeks, weeks turned into months. And then, one not-so-very special day, I went to my typewriter, I sat down, and I wrote our story. A story about a time, a story about a place, a story about the people. But above all things, a story about love. A love that will live forever.

I had come to write about truth, beauty, freedom, and that which I believed in above all things: love. There was only one problem. I'd never been in love!

Luckily, right at that moment an unconscious Argentinean fell through my roof.

[singing] Come what may... come what may. I will love you, until my dying day!

It's a little bit funny this feeling inside, I'm not one of those who can easily hide.

Please tell me you're not one of Toulouse's oh-so-talented, charmingly bohemian, tragically impoverished proteges!

I don't need you anymore! All my life you made believe I was only worth what someone would pay for me! But Christian loves me! He loves me, Harold. He loves me and that is worth everything! We're going away from you, away from the Duke, away from the Moulin Rouge! Good-bye Harold.

Tell our story, Christian. Promise me. Yes. That way I'll... I'll always be with you.
