: Good morning. I'm Erin Bruner. May I sit down? Father Moore
: I brought the chair for my public defender. I guess they left it here when they decided that I wasn't going to kill myself with it.
: Are you a Catholic? Erin Bruner
: No. I'm an agnostic, I guess. I'm not really sure. Father Moore
: If you're not sure, then you are one.
: So, the judge thinks we should offer your client a new plea agreement. Apparently she thinks the community would be better served without this trial. Erin Bruner
: How do you feel about it, personally? Ethan Thomas
: My job is to represent the interest of the people, make an effort to be objective. Erin Bruner
: Hm. I ask because I know you're a churchgoer. Now you're sent to prosecute a man of God. Ethan Thomas
: Your priest broke the law and a young girl is dead. If he's a man of God, then personally I think he's even more subject to the laws of moral behavior and punishment. If it were up to me he'd get no deal at all. Erin Bruner
: What about forgiveness and compassion? Isn't that part of your creed or does that just get in the way of your work? Ethan Thomas
: If you have compassion for your client, counselor, you'll persuade him to accept this: Charges reduced to reckless endangerment, 12 months in a county jail, reducible to 6 plus probation if he can stay out of trouble. Somehow I expect he can manage that, but please understand me... if he refuses I will seek the maximum.
: Are you drunk? Erin Bruner
: Not yet. But I'm working on it.
: That girl was not schizophrenic, she was not epileptic, or any combination of the two. I've seen hundreds of people with those problems. They have terrible afflictions, of course, but they don't scare me. Erin Bruner
: But what you saw in Emily that night? It scared you? Dr. Cartwright
: God, if I'd known, I never would have been there. I examined that girl before I drove back to the city. She was lucid and completely aware of the separate entity inside her. When she wasn't in its grasp, she was totally herself and completely normal, which contradicts the medical statement... Erin Bruner
: Crazy people don't know they're crazy.
: [to Emily Rose's mother
] A lot of cats live here...
[Last Lines of the Movie
] Erin Bruner
: [Looking at Emily's gravestone
] Who chose the Epitaph? Father Moore
: I did. It's from the second chapter of the Phillipines, Verse 12. Emily recited it to me the night before she died.
[Erin places her white flowers next to Emily's Grave, which the Epitaph reads "Work out your own Salvation, with fear and trembling."
