Original Text:
(Bertrand) Dis donc, s’ils allaient nous faire un mauvais parti tous ces meurt-de-faim là ?… (Robert Macaire) Qui, la populace ?… tu ne la connais pas, ça crie, ça geule après les gens riches, comme les chiens après les mendians, mais ça ne mord pas……….. c’est pas méchant c’est bête et v’la tout…… (Il crie très haut) héééé…..hopp !!….. garrrre…gare-gare !…… (Le peuple remarque avec attendrissement qu’il n’a écrasé personne et qu’il a l’air très bon enfant).


Translation:
- (Bertrand): What if they decide to rough us up a bit, those die-hungers?...
- (Robert Macaire): What, the riff-raff?... You don't know them, the things shout, howl after the rich like dogs after beggars, but they don't bite... they're harmless, just stupid, that's all... (he cries out in a loud voice)... Heee... Hooo, go to it, Dotards. (The people notice with emotion that he doesn't crush anyone and that he seems a rather good bloke).
