The Conspirator (2010)
Frederick Aiken: If John Surratt was part of this conspiracy, I pray that he receives every punishment known to man. But if his mother can be convicted on such insufficient evidence, I tell you, none of you are safe.
Frederick Aiken: Members of the commission, do not permit this injustice to Mary Surratt by sacrificing our sacred rights out of revenge. Too many of us have laid down our lives to preserve them.
Frederick Aiken: Sarah, what are you doing here?
Sarah Weston: I'm trying to understand what you're doing here.
Reverdy Johnson: Freddy, she's not your mother, if John Surrat won't turn himself in for her, then why should you?
Mary Surratt: Have you ever believed in something far greater than yourself?
Frederick Aiken: It's John that you want, not Mary.
Edwin Stanton: I'll take either.
Joseph Holt: One bullet killed our beloved president. One bullet but not one man!
Joseph Holt: [to the court about Mary Surratt] She built the nest that hatched this plot.
Mary Surratt: So, have you handled cases like this before?
Frederick Aiken: There's never been a case like this before.
Frederick Aiken: Anna, your brother does not need too be saved now. Your mother does!
