Carlotta:
Think of me
Think of me fondly when we've said goodbye
Remember me once in a while, please promise me you'll try
When you find that once again you long to take your heart back and be free...

(a piece of scenery falls and knocks Carlotta over, pinning her to the stage.)

Monsieur Reyer: (Screams)Oh, my god, Signora!

Carlotta:(screams)
I hate you!

Lift it up!

Meg:
He's here, The Phantom of the Opera.

Lefevre:(Spoken)
Signora, are you alright? Buquet, for God's sake, man, what is going on up there?

Buquet: (Spoken)
Please monsieur don't look at me. As God's my judge, I wasn't at my post. Please monsieur, there's no one there. Or if there is, well then... it must be a ghost.

Andre:(Spoken)
Signora, these things do happen.

Carlotta:(Spoken to Monsieur Leferve)
For the past three years, "these things do happen." And did you stop them from happening? No! (To Andre and Firmin) And you two! You are as bad as him! "These things do happen." UGH! Until you stop these things from happening, this thing does not happen! Ubaldo! Andiamo! Bring my doggy and my boxy!

Piangi:(Spoken)
Amateurs.

Carlotta: (Spoken)
Now you see, bye-bye, I'm really leaving

Lefevre:(Spoken)
Gentlemen, good luck. If you need me, I shall be in Australia.

Andre: (Spoken)
Signora Giudecceli, she will be coming back won't she?

Madame Giry:(Spoken)
You think so monsieur? I have a message, sir, from the opera ghost.

Firmin:(Spoken)
Oh, God in heaven, you're all obsessed.

Madame Giry:(Spoken)
He welcomes you to his opera house-

Firmin:(Spoken)
"His" opera house?

Madame Giry:(Spoken)
And commands that you continue to leave box five empty for his use and reminds you that his salary is due.

Firmin:(Spoken)
His salary?

Madame Giry:(Spoken)
Well, Monsieur Lefevre used to give him 20,000 francs a month.

Firmin:(Spoken)
20,000 francs?!

Madame Giry:(Spoken)
Perhaps you can afford more with the Vicomte as your patron?

Firmin:(Spoken)
Madame, I had hoped to make that announcement public tonight when the Vicomte was to join us for the gala. But obviously,(rips the note in two)we shall now have to cancel as it appears we have lost our star!

Andre: (Spoken)
Surely there must be an...understudy!

Reyer: (Spoken)
Understudy?
There is no understudy for La Carlotta!

Firmin: (Spoken)
A full house, Andre! We shall have to refund a full house!

Madame Giry:(Spoken)
Christine Daae could sing it, Sir.

Andre:(Spoken)
What, a chorus girl? Don't be silly!

Madame Giry:(Spoken)
She has been taking lessons from a great teacher.

Andre:(Spoken)
Who?

Christine:(Spoken)
I don't know his name monsieur.

Madame Giry: (Spoken)
Let her sing for you, monsieur. She has been well taught.

Andre: (Spoken)
All right.
Come on.
Don't be shy.
Just...
Just...

Reyer: (Spoken)
From the beginning of the aria then please madamoiselle.

Firmin:(Spoken)
Andre, this is doing nothing for my nerves.

Andre:(Spoken)
Well, she's very pretty.

Christine:
Think of me
Think of me fondly when we've said goodbye
Remember me once in a while, please promise me you'll try

When you find that once again you long to take your heart back and be free
If you ever find a moment spare a thought for me.

We never said our love was evergreen
Or as unchanging as the sea.
But if you can still remember
Stop and think of me.

Think of all the things we've shared and seen,
Don't think about the way things might have been.

Think of me,
Think of me waking, silent and resigned.
Imagine me
Trying too hard to put you from my mind.
Recall those days, look back on all those times,
Think of the things we'll never do.
There will never be a day when I won't think of you!

Raoul:
Can it be?
Can it be Christine?
(Spoken)
Bravo!
(sung)
Long ago,
It seems so long ago,
How young and innocent we were
She may not remember me,
But I remember her.

Christine:
Flowers fade, The fruits of summer fade,
They have their seasons, so do we.
But please promise me that sometimes
You will think...
(christine Vocalizes an assortment of notes)
Of me!

    I woke up from a dream today in which this song was playing in my head, and it continued even after i awoke. Although this song was not as popular as some of the others from phantom, it now holds a special meaning to me.

    I saw the phantom in toronto with my wife back in 1997, and it was magical. Unfortunately, our marriage ended in 2010 and there is not a day go by that i don’t think of her. However, i have a close relationship with god, and he has promised me that we will reconcile. Until that time, he has given me many “reminders” and this song is one of them.

    In my dream, i saw my wife again and this song started playing in my dream. I hadn’t heard this song in years. During my dream, i could remember the lyrics, but when i awoke, i could only remember some of them, so i went online to help me recall the rest, and in doing so, this gave my dream a full meaning. You see, my wife’s name is christine.

    The opening lines in which christine sings, “when you find that once again you long to take your heart back and be free, remember me once in a while, please promise me you'll try,” i believe she is saying that in those times when i (or anyone else) might want to simply seek freedom and move on from a close relationship and forget about it, to remember the special bond we shared, and hold on to it. This thought is reinforced when she sings, “imagine me,
    trying too hard to put you from my mind,” which supports my belief that despite a person’s attempts to get the feelings of a loved one out their mind, “there will never be a day when i won't think of you! ”

    As long as you remember a loved one and keep those thoughts close to you, that connection will live on. Chris, you will always be in my thoughts, and i will always love you.

    It is about the hope that two lovers have that when they part, their significant other will think of them : )

    A song that is significant in relation to erik and christine
    Their love could not find completion because of his
    Jealousy and evil action against raoul
    This song stays always fresh in both their minds
    And hearts to what might and should have been
