Flesh and the Devil

1
"Raus mit Euch....
  Schweinhunde!"

2
"Out all night again!"

3
"He'll catch
Himmelherrgottheiland-
teufeldonnerwetter!"

4
"Ulrich von Eltz!"

5
"Leo von Harden!"

6
"LEO VON HARDEN!"

7
"He is ill, Sir."

8
"We'll see about that
   later! Fall out!"

9
"He did his best to 
turn out, Sir....he
 even dressed...."

10
"What's the matter 
    with you?"

11
"You'd better stay and
      nurse him."

12
"Report yourselves under 
        arrest!"

13
"Never mind, Ulrich...
think of next week!
Furlough...home...
champagne...sleep!"

14
"Schwarzburgsonderhausen...
Schwarzburggrudolstadt....
Lippedetmoldt-Hannoveran-
derlein!...Blankenburgamharz!"

15
"Leo...my dear son!"

16
"Little sister...how you've 
         grown!"

17
"You may kiss my hand,
     Herr Baron."

18
"I'll eat you in two
   small bites!"

19
"She must be one of the 
guests arriving for the
 ball at Stoltenhof."

20
"There's our 'Isle of
Friendship,' Leo."

21
"Leo, have I offended
        you?"

22
"That's only Schmitz
Island. Why do you 
call it 'The Isle of 
    Friendship?'"

23
"When we were boys, 
and Hertha was a 
little girl...."

24
"By this rite of blood we
are united...in riches
and in poverty...in love
and in sorrow...in life
  and in death....."

25
"...in undying friendship...
   forever...and ever!"

26
"Foolishness! You might have
   got blood-poisoning!"

27
"I'm going to the ball
tonight, too."

28
"I'm almost as tall 
      as you."

29
"It's mean of you to 
treat me as if I were 
      a baby."

30
"How old are you?"

31
"I am sixteen."

32
"Well...almost sixteen."

33
Halewitz Castle...Leo's
    ancestral home.....

34
"See you at the ball 
      tonight!"

35
"Beloved young master,
your humble retainers have
humbly gathered to bid
you a humble welcome.
Since feudal times your
humble retainers have
 humbly tried....."

36
The ball at Stoltenhof
  opened the social 
    season.....

37
"Good evening, Pastor
    Voss....."

38
"I christened these boys
separately...but since
then I've never seen
    them apart!"

39
"I've had enough! I just 
looked at a girl and she 
was twins!"

40
"Fraulein Hertha, may
 I have this dance?"

41
"Leo, I've saved the first 
     dance for you."

42
"Who...are...you?"

43
"What does it matter?"

44
"I'm going to see you
   again....often."

45
"Perhaps....."

46
"You are...very beautiful."

47
"You are...very young."

48
"You know...when you
blow out the match...
that's an invitation to
    kiss you.....?"

49
The tragic, unquestioning...
amusing love of youth.
No one had ever loved
before...Leo was sure of it.

50
"One more day, Leo.
How can I let you go?"

51
"In five months my
service expires...then
we shall be together 
     always."

52
"So that you may not 
    forget me."

53
"Forget you? Not while
I live...not if I die!"

54
"This is Count Rhaden...
     my husband."

55
"Leo von Harden...at
   your service."

56
"Leo...my only excuse
  is...I love you!"

57
"My seconds will call 
upon you in the 
morning."

58
"No scandal must touch
my name! A dispute at
cards will serve as my
excuse for killing you!"

59
"Leo, this is insane...you
can't shoot each other 
over a few hasty words
in a game of cards!"

60
"Leo...if we should be
seen together....."

61
"I had to see you 
again...and we'll never 
meet anyone here 
who knows us."

62
"How long shall you
be gone?"

63
"The military court
advised me to enlist
in the African service 
 for five years....."

64
"Five years...without
        you."

65
"Take me with you, Leo."

66
"I know it's impossible...
but I'm afraid to face 
those lonely years."

67
"When you come back, 
Leo....I'll be waiting."

68
"Good evening...Leo."

69
"Good evening...Pastor."

70
"All because of an angry
word at cards....."

71
"Felicitas von Rhaden is
now a widow...alone...
unprotected...and I
am responsible....."

72
"Go to see her. Help her
   and console her."

73
"You would have gone 
away without bidding 
me goodbye!"

74
"I am here on behalf of 
my dearest friend....
  Leo von Harden."

75
"Is there anything I can
do....to lighten your
grief.....?"

76
"If you should ever need 
anyone to advise you...
   to help you....."

77
"Forgive me for mention-
ing it...I don't know
your circumstances...
but if ever you should
need money....."

78
"...I am rich...and my 
   purse is Leo's."

79
"You are very kind. It 
is good to know...that
in case of need...there is
someone to befriend me."

80
"...and you haven't told 
   mother I'm coming?"

81
"Welcome home, Herr 
    von Harden."

82
"Leo, let me present you
     to...my wife."

83
"I didn't write you...
I wanted you to meet 
Felicitas...before I told 
       you...."

84
"...she has freely forgiven
   you for that tragic
        duel....."

85
"When you know Felicitas
better, you will love 
      her, too."

86
"Herr von Harden is
undoubtedly weary.
We'll drive him home,
     Ulrich."

87
"Countess Eltz is very 
      kind....."

88
"I think I would rather 
greet my mother....
alone."

89
"Two more years, and
our Leo will come 
   back to us."

90
"It would make me very 
happy if you and Leo
were to fall in love and 
       marry."

91
"I shall never marry.
I shall go into a 
     convent."

92
"Wasn't that little
      Hertha?"

93
"She came to live with 
me the day Ulrich
    married."

94
"Why did she run away?"

95
"She is a young lady
now...and she wasn't 
     dressed."

96
"...you'll find everything 
the same....nothing
  changes here."

97
"....nothing changes...."

98
"Come into the garden, 
dear....your brother
wants to talk with Leo."

99
"Leo, is it so difficult 
for you to meet von
 Rhaden's widow?"

100
"If Felicitas can forget 
that tragic duel for
my sake....can't you
  forget it, too?"

101
"I know how much you 
care for him, Leo....
but you are right....
you must give up his 
   friendship."

102
"Because....you still
     love her!"

103
"My boy, when the devil
cannot reach us through 
the spirit...he creates a
woman beautiful enough 
to reach us through the 
       flesh."

104
"Once before that woman
led you into temptation....
   and you sinned...."

105
"Aren't you afraid of 
what she may do to 
you a second time?"

106
"Yes, Pastor....I am
      afraid."

107
"Promise me you'll never 
    see her again."

108
"I promise...nothing!"

109
"You wished to see me?"

110
"And you have not 
wished to see me... 
      Leo?"

111
"Don't judge me, Leo...
you left me all alone...
and Ulrich was so kind."

112
"That's all over now, 
Felicitas...and forgotten."

113
"Not forgotten...you still 
     wear my ring."

114
"Leo....why do we
pretend? I love you...
and you love me...."

115
"But I can endure the
pain of seeing you day
by day...if it will make
    Ulrich happy."

116
"Leo...you must come 
back to him...you must!
   He needs you!"

117
"Come today, Leo."

118
"Leo...you have forgiven 
          us?"

119
"This will be a happy 
surprise for Felicitas."

120
"I am glad you have 
come. Ulrich has
missed you greatly."

121
"To our...undying friend-
ship! And may nothing
ever separate us three
       again."

122
"The text of my sermon
this morning will be....."

123
"My sermon this morning 
will be: 'David hath 
done evil in my sight,
and his deed stinks
 before Heaven!'"

124
"For David hath seduced 
   Uriah's wife!"

125
"And David hath slain
Uriah....so that the
woman might tarry
with him!"

126
"And I found David not
repenting in sackcloth 
   and ashes....!"

127
"...but flaunting his sin
in public places...and
on his right hand was
    Uriah's wife!"

128
"Yea, David, thou hast
broken the Lord's holy
  commandment....!"

129
"....and a fire from
Heaven shall consume
    thee....!"

130
"...thee and that woman 
who sits in sin by thy
        side!"

131
"Jesus, Bread of Life...
grant that we come to
this, Thy table, not in
vain...nor to the injury
    of our souls."

132
"I've said a thousand 
times that I hate to
have people messing 
  about my desk!"

133
"Aren't you ashamed
   of yourself?"

134
"Ever since you've been 
home you've acted like 
  a surly old bear!"

135
"But I, for one, am not
going to put up with
  it any longer!"

136
"You haven't been over 
since Ulrich went to 
   Munich. Why?"

137
"There was no reason 
to come....with Ulrich 
        away."

138
"I tried to stay away...
I fought...I prayed...
I lied to myself...."

139
"But in the end, I had 
     to see you."

140
"Don't cry, please....
you know I can't bear
  to see you cry."

141
"But I must talk with
you, Leo....or I can't
       go on!"

142
"Not here...not alone."

143
"Leo, if you stay away
from me, I can't go 
 on with Ulrich."

144
"You shall go on!"

145
"You'll have to carry 
      me back."

146
"Felicitas...why do you 
make it so difficult 
      for us?"

147
"We must be honest
with Ulrich...and I am
afraid of myself...and
of you."

148
"But are we honest with 
Ulrich now...when we
love each other?"

149
"And we came together 
again only for Ulrich's 
happiness!"

150
"And now look at us!"

151
"This is the end, Felicitas!
I can blow out my 
brains or run away!"

152
"If you die, I'll die with
you! I'll never be parted 
from you again!"

153
"But why not go away?
Isn't it only false
happiness we're giving
Ulrich now?"

154
"...at least we wouldn't 
be hypocrites...."

155
"But can you face 
ruin....disgrace?"

156
"I can face anything.... 
with you!"

157
"We'll go tonight,
Felicitas!"

158
"Watch for him. When
he comes...bring him
up here."

159
"The master has come 
       home!"

160
"Show him up here. 
 Be very quiet."

161
"You aren't dressed or
      packed?"

162
"You're not going?"

163
"Leo...I love you...love
you! But I'm not brave 
enough to leave all this.
We needn't run away..."

164
"You mean...stay here...
in Ulrich's house....
faithless to him?"

165
"But....if we love each 
      other....?"

166
"What are you doing
       here?"

167
"He's mad...mad! He
broke in here....and
when I wouldn't go
away with him...he...."

168
"She's telling the truth...
  the truth! Shoot me
        down!"

169
"We'll meet in the 
morning, when you
can defend yourself."

170
"Where?"

171
"On the 'Isle of Friendship,'
          Leo."

172
"Leo and Ulrich have
gone to kill each other!
And you are the only 
  one who can stop 
       them!"

173
"I....what can I do?"

174
"You can tell the 
     truth!"

175
"You must stop them 
for your own sake!
Can you have this on
your soul?"

176
"Is there anything....
anything...I can say...to
make you understand?"

177
"Father in Heaven...you
   must hear me...!"

178
"....Father....Leo and
Ulrich...their friendship...
      so sacred....."

179
"Father...I love Leo...
and I am so helpless...
   helpless....."

180
"...if Leo dies, Ulrich will
be lost! Father in Heaven,
hear my prayers...open
     her eyes!"

181
"I shall count three.
After that we fire at 
       will."

182
"Leo, defend yourself.
I shall shoot to kill."

183
"Leo, everything is 
suddenly clear to 
me...as if a veil had 
lifted...."

184
"I know...I felt it too..."

185
"....I understand now....
the duel with Rhaden....
Felicitas...you! I understand!"

186
"Ulrich...my friend...
my friend!"

The End
