Flashback to the happier days of one of these pitiful cases - Jean Basteaux. Once "the fines garlic crouton chef in all of France." Fame, adulation, beautiful women, he had it all. Until that fateful press conference, when a journalist produced Phileas Fogg Mignons Morceaux - garlic croutons every bit as tasty as Jean's. Finish back in the barrack where Jean is swatting flies from under his corrugated iron bed sheet - "just another crouton floating on the bouillabaisse of life."
