The dancers call him "The Frenchman", because he held poems up to the windows written in French.

I seem to recall Portishead - Roads playing in the background during that scene in the booth. Made my day.

I'll explain my random, off-the cuff quotation if you can explain yours?

Oh, so that's where the Merovingian got his name.

Sure, although mine was more of a joke than a quotation. I forget the character's name who said it, actually, I'm not sure if his name was ever mentioned in the movie. In the Matrix Revolutions, Sati's father kept saying that the frenchman is not a forgiving person when he was refering to the Merovingian.

Okay - that makes sense now. You can see Kaulis's answer below for the "original" context, if there is such a thing.

Sure.
In the first episode of Millenium, Frank Black pursues a serial killer (etc.). In the first 20 minutes or so, he visits the peep show and enters the booth in which the killer sat. I recall it being dim and red, and a song by Portishead playing in the background, which I suppose might've been "War," and not "Roads." Or something else off their self-titled album; I have trouble keeping the names straight. (Actually, I think that might've been when the killer was in the booth, not Frank.)

Anyhow, I love Portishead, and I was just beginning to watch the series, and it seemed a good omen. That was the first thing your reference made me remember.

Re: Sure.
Okay - I had absolutely no memory of that song in the episode. You win!
