A Fever in the Blood (1961)
Dan Callahan: Has Miss Laura Mayberry been under surveillance for the last three days?
Police Sgt. Michael 'Mickey' Beers: Yes.
Dan Callahan: Why?
Police Sgt. Michael 'Mickey' Beers: Because you asked me to do it.

Attorney Clem Marker: Your Honor, the crudeness of this scheme shocks me. There was nothing in that room to indicate the commission of any crime, and yet this witness...
Police Sgt. Michael 'Mickey' Beers: There was plenty!
Attorney Clem Marker: Plenty? A moment ago you said you had only a hunch!
Police Sgt. Michael 'Mickey' Beers: Yeah, I had more than that. Thornwall tried to kill his wife once before, and she called the police!
Attorney Clem Marker: Mistrial! Your Honor, I move for a mistrial! His is the most damaging piece of viciously prejudicial evidence I have ever heard in any courtroom!
Dan Callahan: There's no ground for a mistrial! If he didn't want the answer, he shouldn't have asked the question!
Judge Leland Hoffman: Order!
[Bangs gavel]
Judge Leland Hoffman: Order!
[Bangs gavel again]
Judge Leland Hoffman: I'm going to clear this room if we don't have order.

Attorney Clem Marker: You were formerly Governor of this State?
Governor Oliver P. Thornwall: Yes.
Attorney Clem Marker: What is your relation to the defendant?
Governor Oliver P. Thornwall: Walter Thornwall is my nephew.
Attorney Clem Marker: When was the last time you saw his wife?
Governor Oliver P. Thornwall: I saw Paula on the eighth of February.
Attorney Clem Marker: Two days before she met her death.
Governor Oliver P. Thornwall: Since that was the last time I saw her alive, I can hardly forget the time or the occasion.
Attorney Clem Marker: And what was the occasion, Governor?
Governor Oliver P. Thornwall: Dinner in my home.
Attorney Clem Marker: Aside from you and Paula Thornwall, who else was present?
Governor Oliver P. Thornwall: My nephew Walter. I wanted to try to bring them back together.
Attorney Clem Marker: And what was the result?
Governor Oliver P. Thornwall: I failed.
Attorney Clem Marker: From the way they behaved towards one another during the time you were with them, would you say that...
Dan Callahan: Objection. Leading the witness.
Judge Leland Hoffman: Sustained.
Attorney Clem Marker: I'll rephrase that. What was their attitude toward one another during the evening?
Governor Oliver P. Thornwall: They behaved like two people who understood each other.

Judge Leland Hoffman: Well, Dan, you win. Being Governor of this State, beating you, they aren't worth a damn if I have to turn myself into another Dan Callahan to get them. For one minute, sitting up there, I felt like a total stranger to my own self. I don't have to tell you what a sick sensation that is.
Dan Callahan: My conscience doesn't hurt.
Judge Leland Hoffman: Oh? Well, maybe you've gotten used to it by now.
