Вы мало того что просмотрели народ, - вы с омерзительным презрением к нему относились, уж по тому одному, что под народом вы воображали себе один только французский народ, да и то одних парижан, и стыдились, что русский народ не таков.

When he performs tricks like that, under duress, to protect himself, it is easy to imagine him at his job for the government.

“I’m a good copper,” she told the mirror, trying to imagine how she would explain it to her dad…her dad who’d become so proud of her.
— Я хороший коп, — объявила она, обращаясь к своему отражению в зеркале и пытаясь представить, как будет объяснять случившееся отцу… отцу, который так ею гордится.
