John Palmer Cass: Yes, sir.

Abe Lincoln: What's the "J" stand for?

John Palmer Cass: John.

Abe Lincoln: Anyone ever call you Jack?

John Palmer Cass: Yeah, but...

Abe Lincoln: Why "J. Palmer Cass?" Why not "John P. Cass?"

John Palmer Cass: Well, I...

Abe Lincoln: Does "J. Palmer Cass" have something to hide?

John Palmer Cass: No.

Abe Lincoln: Then what do you part your name in the middle for?

John Palmer Cass: I got a right to call myself anything I want as long as it's my own name!

Abe Lincoln: Well then if it's all the same to you, I'll call you Jack-ass.

[Roar of laughter from spectators]

[last lines]

Efe Turner: Ain't you goin' back, Abe?

Abe Lincoln: [as the "Battle Hymn of the Republic" begins playing softly in the background] No, I think I might go on a piece... maybe to the top of that hill.

[Lincoln and Felder are picking jurors for the trial of Matt and Adam Clay]

Prosecutor John Felder: Mr. Lincoln should know that the mere fact that a prospective juror knows counsel for the state does not disqualify him.

Abe Lincoln: I know that, John. What I'm afraid of is that some of the jurors might NOT know you... and that'd put me at a great disadvantage.

Abe Lincoln: [to John Felder] I may not know much of law Mr. Felder, but I know what's right and what's wrong. And I know what you're asking is wrong.

Abe Lincoln: [questioning Cass about Scrub's death] What were you and Scrub arguing about?

John Palmer Cass: I'd rather not say.

Abe Lincoln: Oh, you'd rather not say. Well, Jack, I'd rather you did say.

John Palmer Cass: All right. We was arguin' about politics.

Abe Lincoln: Well, that's something new to argue about.

John Palmer Cass: I've learned some since, but I told Scrub I thought you had at least as much political sense in you as Stephen Douglas. Scrub got as mad as a wet hen and said you didn't!
