What brings you to Monza, Monique?
Business, of course.
Nino wonders if you're ready to be beaten.
No one is ever ready for that.
You will never retire, Jean-Pierre.
What does it matter to you, Monique?
As always, as a hero, you're a good asset to the company.
Well, perhaps I'm tired of being an asset for the company, and tired too, of this farce we perform, you and I, for public consumption.
But it doesn't really matter that you are tired of these things, Jean-Pierre. If you should decide not to continue with the... the farce, as you call it, that, of course, is entirely up to you.
But it will make no difference.
As long as you're my husband the company will have the prestige of your name and whether or not you ever step into one of these again.
And you will always be my husband. You know that, don't you?
This one, she may be different to you but not to me. To me, she is just like all the others. And we will always be married, you and I.
Stay away from me, Monique. Let me alone, please.
Tell me. What terrible thing have I done to you that makes you want to nail me to this absurd life we have together?
What terrible thing, Monique?
