*** Well, there was that episode of {{Scrubs}} where JD was arguing about [[FanNickname The Glums]] with all the gay OAPs who had started congregating on his decking. Apart from that, this troper can't think of any other examples.

* In the musical, Valjean worries that his true identity has been discovered and intends to escape overseas with Cosette. But then he decides to go to the barricade instead. So what was Cosette doing when both her father and supposedly one true love were out fighting for their lives? Was she too much of a lady to go check on them or had she just been [[LockedOutOfTheLoop left out of the situation?]]

** In the book, he reads about it in the paper but he has no idea why Javert would do something like that. He decides Javert must have been mad because he let him go and that's why he killed himself.

* Does Valjean know about Javert's suicide, and equally importantly, that his (Valjean's) actions helped cause it?

* "Who is this man and does he know ... That, giving me my life today, ''he has killed me'' even so?" -Inspector Javert. Well, that makes two of us who are in the dark. Does Jean Valjean know about Javert's suicide? ** You're questioning the logic the thoughts of a man about to throw himself off a bridge because his entire worldview was shattered in one night, and you think ''he's'' the crazy one?

** He assumed the piece that Thenardier took was taken by the man who saved him. And I recall he hid them from the others. As for Thenardier's failure at logic, he's Thenardier. I dare you to name one time his actions made sense.

*** He did say "every man is born of sin/every man must find his way" in "The Confrontation". Which makes sense if you think about it; Javert is so strict with criminals because he believes they choose not to seek forgiveness. Then comes Valjean, putting more holes in this ideology than Swiss cheese.

** The people who were conducting the proceedings were probably bureaucrats, and bureaucrats always miss the obvious solution.

*** How do you know Javert ISN'T psychic? It would explain a lot.

** He probably didn't want to die but was just accepting of his incoming death. For him, its entirely sensible that an informant would be executed after being captured by rebels. It would fit right into his strict view of the world that he had lived by all his life. Being spared is where he starts to freak out because it contradicts this view. As for the ID and note, it probably would have been helpful when leaving the barricade to confirm that he was in fact with the government.

It would fit right into his strict view of the world that he had lived by all his life. In fact, he probably sees it as the Rebels' right to kill him if they caught him. And as to dying... He probably thought he would be a martyr and ascend to heaven. KnightTemplars are like that. Being spared is where he starts to freak out because it contradicts this view.

** In Javert's mind, the stars represent God's will. They're orderly and predictable, they give light to the darkness, and on the rare occasion they fall, they fall "in flame," an explicit metaphor for the way sinners who stray from the proper path are condemned to Hell. It's anything but pagan to him.
