Ghosts of Mississippi (1996)
[about Medgar Evers' widow pursuing the murder case for decades]
Bobby DeLaughter: I think about her keeping this thing alive all this time. Imagine a woman loving a man so much.
Charlie Crisco: Hell, I can't even get a woman to love me while I'm still alive.

[Addressing the jury in summation]
Bobby DeLaughter: President John F. Kennedy in his landmark civil rights speech to the nation, delivered on the very night Medgar Evers was murdered, said: "We face a moral crisis as a country and as a people. Those who do nothing are inviting shame, as well as violence. Those who act boldly are recognizing right, as well as reality." Today, thirty years later, I'm asking you twelve ladies and gentlemen to act boldly; to hold this defendant accountable and find him guilty... simply because it is right, it is just, and Lord knows, it is time. Is it ever too late to do the right thing?

Bobby DeLaughter: I don't see what difference it makes if a man was bushwhacked yesterday, today, or 27 damn years ago. Murder is murder. And it's still my job to bring the son of a bitch to justice. And it's still your job to help me.
Delamar Dennis: No! I did my job. I testified against the Klan. They shot out my windows, blew up my car, they hunted and harassed me for twenty five years. Don't that get me even for the wrong I done?
Bobby DeLaughter: We never get even for the wrong we've done.

Bobby DeLaughter: Are you saying you killed Medger Evers?
