What is the significance of the prisoner asking Daru to "listen" in the story?

I don't recall the prisoner talking.

The significance come from the fact that if Daru really did his job, he would deliver the prisoner to the French without hesitation, but if he takes the time to listen, he would follow his own conscience and allow the prisoner his freedom.
