Teaser Tuesday--Les Miserables + RMQ

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My teaser is from Les Miserables by Victor Hugo. It's taken all year for me to get through this book, but I've got less than 20% left, which means I'll probably finish it this week.

   
"At last! After the lapse of four years! He grasped him entire, so to speak, in a single glance. He found him noble, handsome, distinguished, well-grown, a completed man,with a suitable mien and a charming air. He felt a desire to open his arms, to call him, to fling himself forward; his heart melted with rapture, affectionate words swelled and overflowed his breast; at length all his tenderness came to the light and reached his lips, and, by a contrast which constituted the very foundation of his nature, what came forth was harshness. He said abruptly:--'What have you come here for?'"

What great teasers have YOU come across this week?

Sorry I haven't been very consistent with RMQ lately. I'll try to be better. :D

Last week's RMQ was, "If you want to receive emails about my upcoming shows, then please give me money so I can buy a computer."

Okay, so this was a bit of a trick one. It wasn't a movie. This is a line from Friends. Pheobe, played by Lisa Kudrow said it. No one got this one. :D

This week's RMQ is:


What kind of a place is this where you almost mean what you say? Where laws almost work? How can you live like that? 

One point for character, one for actor, one for film. Good luck! :D
