Joe WilsonEdit

  • I don't care anything about saving them. They're murderers. I know the law says they're not because I'm still alive. But that's not their fault. And the law doesn't know that a lot of things that were very important to me, silly things, maybe, like a belief in justice and an idea that men were civilized and a feeling of pride that this country of mine was different from all others. The law doesn't know that those things were burned to death within me that night.
  • I'll give them a chance that they didn't give me. They will get a legal trial in a legal courtroom. They will have a legal judge and a legal defense. They will get a legal sentence and a legal death.
  • "I got you a little momentum." (He meant memento.)

Katherine GrantEdit

  • The mob doesn't think. It has no mind of its own.
  • [to Joe] If those people die, Joe Wilson dies too; you know that, don't you? Wherever you go, whatever you do.


  • District Attorney: [after several witnesses have lied on the stand] I wonder if I haven't been calling the defense witnesses by mistake.
