Quotes from

Carmen García: I knew you would be a nuisance. I said it! You and your tiresome regrets. And your weeping about something that's already over and done with. Take your payo conscience and make some woman a present of it. I tell you I'm sick of it!
Don José Lizarabengoa: It'd be well if you borrowed some of my conscience because you have none of your own.
Carmen García: You wouldn't love me nearly so much if I had a conscience, Joseíto.
Don José Lizarabengoa: [Sarcastically] That's a wonderful excuse. To say, "I'm a Gypsy and I don't know right from wrong."
Carmen García: [She kisses him] I don't know, Joseíto. Tell me. What is right? What is wrong?
[She kisses him again]
Carmen García: Is that wrong, little soldier?

Don José Lizarabengoa: [begging for her love on his knees] I lost everything. I gave it all up for you! But I don't mind. I'm not sorry - only please, please don't leave me!
Carmen García: [with complete contempt] Like a worm - cut him in half and he still crawls!

Don José Lizarabengoa: [Accuses Carmen of having an affair] It's Lucas the matador now, is that it?
Carmen García: What difference does it make?
Don José Lizarabengoa: Answer me!
Carmen García: Yes! Yes! Now are you satisfied? And why not? I like to laugh once in a while. And what've I had with you? Nothing but tears and preaching and long faces. I can't live penned up in a cage. I won't! I'm sick of it. Can't you understand? I'm sick of you! Now get away and leave me alone!
Don José Lizarabengoa: [He clutches her] Carmen, don't leave me. Don't leave me, I love you so much.
[He kisses her repeatedly]
Don José Lizarabengoa: See how much I love you. You're all I have left in the world, little Carmen. I gave it all up for you. But I don't mind.
[He gets on his knees, hanging on her]
Don José Lizarabengoa: I'm not sorry. Only please, please, don't leave me.
