Halina:
We could hide the money. Look here. We can hide the money under the flower pots.

Father:
No, no, no, no, I'll tell you what we do. We use tried and tested methods. You know what we did in the last war? We made a hole in the table leg [taps the leg] and hid the money in there.

Henryk Szpilman:
And suppose they take the table away?

Father:
What do you mean, take the table away?

Henryk Szpilman:
The Germans go into Jewish homes and they just take what they want, furniture, valuable, anything.

Mother:
Do they?

Father:
Idiot, what would they want with a table, a table like this? [rips a piece of wood off the table]

Mother:
What on earth are you doing!

Halina:
No, listen. This is the best place for it. No-one would think of looking under the flower pots.

Henryk Szpilman:
No, no, no, listen, listen to me, I've been thinking...

Wladyslaw Szpilman:
Oh, really? That's a change.

Henryk Szpilman:
You know what we do? We use psychology.

Wladyslaw Szpilman:
We use *what*?

Henryk Szpilman:
We leave the money and the watch on the table, and we cover it like this, in full view.

Wladyslaw Szpilman:
[amazed] Are you stupid?

Henryk Szpilman:
The Germans will search high and low, I promise you, they'll never notice!

Wladyslaw Szpilman:
That's the stupidest thing I've ever seen, of course they'll notice it. Look. [takes the violin and a bill, folds it and slips it into the opening of the violin] Look here... idiot.

Henryk Szpilman:
And you call me stupid?

Mother:
No, that is very good, because that is the last place they will ever look.

Henryk Szpilman:
This will take hours!

Mother:
We're not in a hurry, we'll get it back...

Wladyslaw Szpilman:
It won't take hours.

Henryk Szpilman:
How will you get them out? Tell me that, tell me how, I'd like to know, how would you get them out. You take each one out individually...

Halina:
No-one listens to me, no-one.
