* In the film version of the musical, Valjean starts as a convict with a shaven head, dressed in red tatters. By the time Fantine is arrested and confronts Valjean, her head's been shorn and she's wearing a bright red dress, as an ironic echo of Valjean's own helplessness and powerlessness.

*** Another note about celestial symbolism: Stars are a guiding light for navigation, like a lighthouse, so they also represent Javert's moral code- the guiding light of his life. But when the light goes out... You're left in the darkness, with nothing to steer by("There is nowhere I can turn").

*** "... And if you fall, as Lucifer fell, the flames the sword!" Those are methods of execution. When Javert realizes that he is not right in his beliefs, he executes himself. And the ending of "Stars": also foreshadows his death: "Lord, let me find him, that I may see him safe behind bars. I will never rest, 'till then, this I swear, this I swear by the stars!" Well, when Javert realizes that he [[MortonsFork can either arrest Jean Valjean, make a morally reprehensible choice by sentencing a good man to prison and thus damming himself, or let Jean Valjean go, make a morally reprehensible choice by breaking divine law (as he sees it) and thus damming himself, will be doing evil either way,]] [[BreakTheBeliever and that all the beliefs he has held so close to his heart were wrong,]] he is unable to resolve the conflict and is only able to find peace by killing himself, but, given that suicide is a mortal sin, he's ''still'' made the wrong choice, thus damming himself, and as such is never able to find rest, not even in death. [[TearJerker Awww, poor thing.]]

** While we're at it, his line about [[MysteryMeat mixing God-knows-what into material that he claims as 'beef']] is hardly better.

* While it doesn't really play a role in the musical itself, a ''[[SarcasmMode truly lovely]]'' line sung by Thénardier about using [[KickTheDog body parts from horses and even poor dead housecats]] as filler for sausages will sometimes stick in one's mind, especially for those that are cat lovers, those eating while watching, or both.

Especially in [[Film/LesMiserables2012 the 2012 film]], when the cat he uses is ''right there'' when he's singing.

** Also, in "Javert's Suicide", one of the lyrics towards the end, just before he kills himself, is "And the Stars are Black and Cold", showing that he believes himself to be abandoned by God.

God. ** Remember when Javert sings "And if you fall, like Lucifer fell, you fall in flames!"? Let's see. Lucifer fell because he was punished by God, and fell into the flames (hell). [[spoiler: Javert fell because he wanted punish himself, and fell into... the water (Seine).]]
