Life (I) (1999)
Ned Beatty: Dexter Wilkins
Dexter Wilkins : You've been on this farm for quite a spell, haven't you?
Claude Banks : Over 40 years now, me and Ray Gibson over there.
Dexter Wilkins : 40 years... that's a long time for any crime, even murder.
Claude Banks : It's a hell of a lot longer when you're innocent.
Dexter Wilkins : Half the men in this prison swear they're innocent, Claude. Don't you think that's kind of funny?
Claude Banks : Well, you have to forgive me if I don't laugh.
[the truth comes out]
Dexter Wilkins : [on learning Pike framed Ray Gibson and Claude Banks] Is there any truth in what this man said?
Older Sheriff Pike : What the hell difference does it make? At least the state of Mississippi got forty years of cheap labor out of the deal!
Claude Banks : Motherfucker, you took our lives! Gimme the gun, I'm gonna kill this motherfucker myself!
