Javert’s the type of cop that would miss out on a high-speed chase because he’s too busy trying to catch a jaywalker the next street over.
I’ve solved more crimes than I can count. Because I’ve solved a lot of crimes. Not because I can’t count very high.
Javert: 24601, do you LIKE making me look like a dickhole? Do you?
Valjean: …You want me to say “no,” right?
I always wonder about Javert’s line “this time there is no mistake” when they’ve arrested the wrong Jean Valjean. Like, you have done this before? You keep arresting people as that one bread thief from the past? HOW DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR JOB?
