: That was a good day's work, McAndrew. A good day's work. Joe McAndrew
: Get away from me. Gerry Conlon
: You're not looking me in the eye when you're speaking to me. You see, I know how to look at people without blinking as well. In all my god-forsaken life I have never known what it was like to want to kill somebody until now. You're a brave man, Joe. A brave man.
: I want you have some respect. Gerry Conlon
: Respect for who? Giuseppe Conlon
: For yourself.
[Speaking to people outside the court
] Gerry Conlon
: I'm an innocent man. I spent 15 years in prison for something I didn't do. I watched my father die in a British prison for something he didn't do. And this government still says he's guilty. I want to tell them that until my father is proved innocent, until all the people involved in this case are proved innocent, until the guilty ones are brought to justice, I will fight on. In the name of my father and of the truth!
: I'll be older than you when I get out of this place. If I get out. Are you listening to me? Giuseppe Conlon
: I'm not talking to you. Gerry Conlon
: Now who's being childish? Giuseppe Conlon
: I've not heard a sensible word out of you in two weeks. That stuff will kill you.
[talking about drugs
] Gerry Conlon
: Sure I'm dead anyway. Look I'm sorry. I'll not take it again as long as you live. Are you happy now? Giuseppe Conlon
: No. Gerry Conlon
: Why not? Giuseppe Conlon
: I don't want you to take it whether I live or die. Gerry Conlon
: Oh, give me strength. Ok, I'll do nothing to annoy you in your grave. Now are you happy? Giuseppe Conlon
: Is that a promise? Gerry Conlon
: Ay, maybe.
: It's not the stairs that are killing your father. Gerry Conlon
: Aye, what is it then? Gareth Peirce
: It's your lack of faith. Gerry Conlon
: Lack of faith? Faith in what? Gareth Peirce
: In yourself. Gerry Conlon
: No. I have faith in myself. Gerry Conlon. Lifer. 30-year sentence. And I know how to survive it, no problem. Gareth Peirce
: At what price? Gerry Conlon
: I'll pay the fuckin' price, don't you worry about it. Gareth Peirce
: The price for what? Gerry Conlon
: Aye. You're very good at the English, aren't you? You see, I don't understand your language. "Justice." "Mercy." "Clemency." I literally don't understand what those words mean. I'd like to put in an application to get all my teeth extracted. That way I could put my fist in my mouth and never speak another word of fuckin' English so long as I live. Do you see what I'm saying... Mrs. Peirce is it? Gareth Peirce
: Are you trying to impress me?
: Was I always bad, was I? Giuseppe Conlon
: Not always. Gerry Conlon
: I don't deserve to spend the rest of my life in here do I? Giuseppe Conlon
: All they done was block out the light.
[points to his head

: What I remember most about my childhood is holding your hand. My wee hand in your big hand, and the smell of tobacco. I remember, I could smell the tobacco in the palm of your hand. When I want to feel happy, I try to remember the smell of tobacco. Giuseppe Conlon
: Hold my hand.
: I'm going to die. Gerry Conlon
: Don't be saying that. Giuseppe Conlon
: I'm scared. Gerry Conlon
: There's no reason to be scared. You have nothing to be scared about. Giuseppe Conlon
: Don't you be comforting me when I can see the truth staring me in the face. I'm scared I'm gonna die here. Gerry Conlon
: You're not dying alright? Giuseppe Conlon
: Can I not say a thing without you contradicting me? I'm scared to leave your mother behind. Gerry Conlon
: Look, you are not going to die alright? If you do, sure I can look after Ma alright. Giuseppe Conlon
: You think I'd leave Sara in your care? Gerry Conlon
: What do you mean? Giuseppe Conlon
: You haven't the maturity to take care of yourself, let alone your mother.
