Ensemble: Has the Persephone docked yet?
Yeah, the passengers are going through customs now
Here they come
It's Mrs. Aster
Hey, Mrs. Aster, over here
Hey, how was the trip?
Is that the latest Paris style?
Look, there's Colonel Vanderbilt
Hey, Colonel, enjoyed those French Pastries, did you?
There's nothing there we don't have
Bigger and better over here, I assure you
There, that's Oscar Hammerstein, ain't it?
Hey, Mr. H, over here, this way
H-How was Europe?
Hey, there she is
Miss Daae, Miss Daae
Christine, Miss Daae
Raoul: Her name is Madame de Chagny, now stand aside, stand aside please! No pictures, do you hear? No pictures of my wife,
no pictures of the boy!
Press: Hey Christine! Why Coney Island? Your first concert in years, why aren't you singing at the Met?
Raoul: The Vicomtess has been engaged by a well-known person --
Press: Well-known? No one's ever seen the guy! Hey, how do you lure the great Christine Daae over here anyways? It's the
money right? All that American moola? Hey Christine, what'cha gonna sing, Yankee-doodle moola?
Raoul: My wife is an artist, sir!
Press: Yeah, and her art is paying off your gambling debt, that's what they say in France! Is it true you left your entire
fortune on a roulette table in Montecarlo?
Raoul: Insolent reject! How dare you!
Raoul: Not now, Gustave.
Press: Hey kid! How's it feel to have a famous mother? This your first time in America? What do you plan to do here at Coney?
Gustave: I-I want to learn how to swim
Raoul: I said leave the child alone. God's sake! Didn't this Mr. Y send someone to receive us?
Gustave: Mother, look! Right over there, across the square. What is it?
