...when they put you in that cell, when those bars slam home, that's when you know it's for real.
Get busy living,
Do you feel you've been rehabilitated?
The funny thing is - on the outside, I was an honest man, straight as an arrow.
I believe in two things: discipline and the Bible. Here you'll receive both.
Let me tell you something my friend.
Lord! It's a miracle!
We sat and drank with the sun on our shoulders and felt like free men. Hell, we could have been tarring the roof of one of our own houses. We were the lords of all creation.
Geology is the study of pressure and time. That's all it takes really, pressure, and time.
These walls are funny. First you hate 'em, then you get used to 'em. Enough time passes, you get so you depend on them.
I wouldn't say friends. I'm a convicted murderer who provides sound financial planning
Dumb-ass? 'Dumas'. You know what it's about? You'll like it, it's about a prison break.
Nothing left but some damn rocks on the windowsill. And that cupcake on the wall! Let's ask her, maybe she knows.
His first night in the joint, Andy Dufresne cost me two packs of cigarettes.
Andy Dufresne: So Moresby prison issued you your gun but you actually had to pay for it. Moresby Batter: Damn right. The holster too.
There must be a con like me in every prison in America.
Well they'd have his last known address, names of relatives. It's a chance, isn't it.
I must admit I didn't think much of Andy first time I laid eyes on him;
He had a quiet way about him, a walk and a talk that just wasn't normal around here.
I want to try to talk some sense to him, tell him the way things are. But I can't. That kid's long gone, and this old man is all that's left. I got to live with that. Rehabilitated? It's just a bulls*** word.
It was like some beautiful bird flapped into our drab little cage and made those walls dissolve away,
I'm Dekins. I was thinking about setting up some kind of trust fund for my kids educations.
