Happiness [CLARA]
I'm so happy,
I'm afraid I'll die
Here in your arms

What would you do
If I died
Like this -

Right now,
Here in your arms?

That we ever should have met
Is a miracle

[GIORGIO]
No, inevitable -

[CLARA]
Then inevitable, yes,
But I confess
It was the look --

[GIORGIO]
The look?

[CLARA]
The sadness in your eyes
That day
When we glanced
At each other in the park

[GIORGIO]
We were both unhappy

[CLARA]
Unhappiness can be seductive

[GIORGIO]
You pitied me...

[BOTH]
How quickly pity leads to love

[CLARA]
All this happiness
Merely from a glance
In the park.
So much happiness
So much love --

[GIORGIO]
I thought I knew what love was

[CLARA]
I wish we might have met so much sooner
I could have given you --

[GIORGIO]
I thought I knew what love was

[CLARA]
-- My youth

[GIORGIO]
I thought I knew how much I could feel

[CLARA]
All the time we lost...

[GIORGIO]
I didn't know what love was.

[CLARA]
I've never known what love was.

[GIORGIO]
But now --

[CLARA]
And now --

[BOTH]
-- I do.
It's what I feel with you.
The happiness I feel with you.

[CLARA]
So much happiness --

[GIORGIO]
You are so beautiful...

[CLARA]
-- Happiness by chance in a park.

[GIORGIO]
Not by chance,
By necessity --

[CLARA]
Surely, this is happiness -

[GIORGIO]
- by the sadness that we saw in each other.

[CLARA]
- no one else has ever felt before!

[BOTH]
Just another love story,
That's what they would claim.
Another simple love story -
Aren't all of them the same?

[CLARA]
No, but this is more,
we feel more!

[BOTH]
This is so much more!
(Smiling at each other)
Like every other love story.

Some say happiness
comes and goes.
then this happiness
is a kind of happiness
No one really knows.

[GIORGIO]
I thought I knew what love was.

[CLARA]
I'd only heard what love was.

[GIORGIO]
I thought it was no more than a name for yearning.

[CLARA]
I thought it was what kindness became.

[GIORGIO]
I'm learning -

[CLARA]
I thought where there was love there was shame.

[GIORGIO]
- that with you -

[CLARA]
But with you -

[BOTH]
- there's just happiness.

[CLARA]
Endless happiness ...

[spoken] What?

[GIORGIO]
[spoken] Not now ...

[CLARA]
[spoken] Tell me ... please.

[GIORGIO]
[spoken] I received my orders from headquarters.
I've been transferred to the Fourth Brigade.

[CLARA]
[spoken] When?

[GIORGIO]
[spoken] I leave in five days. Clara, don't look so sad.

[CLARA]
[spoken] You're the one that makes me happy.

[GIORGIO]
[spoken] We'll make the most of the next four days.
I'll steal as much time as I can. Then after I leave,
we'll write to each other ever day.
We'll make love with our words.
You'll be with me ever day, Clara.

[CLARA]
[spoken] I must go. I'm expected.

[GIORGIO]
God, you are so beautiful.
I love to see you in the light,
Clear and beautiful, memorize
Every inch,
every part of you
to take with me.

[CLARA]
[spoken] Giorgio...

[GIORGIO]
Your feet so soft,
As if they'd never touched the ground.

[CLARA]
[spoken] I must go ...

[GIORGIO]
Your skin so white, so pure, so delicate.
Your smell so sweet, your breathe so warm.
I will summon you in my mind,
I'm painting you indelibly on my mind.

[CLARA]
Let me go ...

[GIORGIO]
We must fill every moment.

[CLARA]
All this happiness ended by a word in the dark.

[GIORGIO]
Oh my love, oh my darling ...

[CLARA]
So much happiness wasn't meant to last.

[GIORGIO]
I am here,
I am with you
I am yours.

[CLARA]
I never knew what love was.

[GIORGIO]
Your skin,
your silken hair ...

[CLARA]
I always thought I didn't deserve it.

[GIORGIO]
Your breasts, your lips ...

[CLARA]
I didn't know what love was.

[GIORGIO]
I want you every minute of my life ...

[CLARA]
I don't know how I'll live when you're gone!

[GIORGIO]
I will always be here.

[CLARA]
I don't know how I'll live ...
Giorgio ...
Don't leave me ...

[COLONEL]
[spoken] Thank you Lieutenant.

[DOCTOR]
[spoken] How was "Rigoletto"?

[TORASSO]
[spoken] Terrible. These touring companies get no better.

[LOMBARDI]
[spoken] Nor do you.

[TORASSO]
[spoken] I sing to lighten the weight of your cooking.

[BARRI]
[(spoken) (examining his plate)] Sergeant, what is this?

[LOMBARDI]
[spoken] It's veal.

[BARRI]
[spoken] Again? We had veal four days ago.
And from the looks of it, it was this veal.

[LOMBARDI]
[spoken] Lieutenant Barri, if I hear -

[RIZZOLLI]
[spoken] Colonel, I've heard a rumor that the King is
about to sign a treaty with the French.

[DOCTOR]
[spoken] Really?

[COLONEL]
[spoken] I've heard no such rumor, Major.

[DOCTOR]
[spoken] Where did you come by this information?

[RIZZOLLI]
[spoken] In town.

[COLONEL]
[spoken] You can't believe everything you hear in a whorehouse.

[RIZZOLLI]
[spoken] That is where Garibaldi got much of his information, sir.

[DOCTOR]
[spoken] Ah, so that's why you go there!

[COLONEL]
[spoken] Ah, Captain Bachetti. Welcome.
We wondered when you were going to arrive.
May I introduce Doctor Tambourri, Major Rizzolli ...

[TORASSO]
[spoken] Lieutenant Torasso.

[BARRI]
[spoken] Lieutenant Barri.

[LOMBARDI]
[spoken] Sergeant LOMBARDI

[BARRI]
[spoken] Our cook.

[COLONEL]
[spoken] Come. Come and join us.

[GIORGIO]
[spoken] Could you post this one for me?

[LOMBARDI]
[spoken] You'll have to excuse our rather limited menu,
Captain.
It's difficult to grow vegetables in this mountain soil.

[DOCTOR]
[spoken] We're a bit isolated here, Captain.
Not only from anything green and edible,
but also from life and ideas.

[RIZZOLLI]
[spoken] I just add vinegar to everything

[TORASSO]
[spoken] Captain Bachetti, the COLONEL has been telling
us of your triumphs pinning down the Russian infantry.

[GIORGIO]
[spoken] I'm not sure that my actions worried your attention.

[TORASSO]
[spoken] Come, come. Didn't you rescue a wounded man
in the midst of fire and then carry him on your horse to camp?

[GIORGIO]
[spoken] Only to our battalion.

[BARRI]
[spoken] Say you brought him back to camp!
Why settle for being half a hero when full-fledged
is just a white lie away?
