I learned it by watching French movies

I heard this in a wonderful French movie named "Stolen Kisses", by the legend Francois Truffaut.

What is the difference between courtesy and tact?
Courtesy:  A man opens a bathroom door and sees a naked woman.  He says, "Excuse me, ma'am," and quickly backs out.
Tact:  A man opens a bathroom door and sees and naked woman.  He says, "Pardon me, sir."
