Day of the Badman (1958)
Mrs. Quary: You got to hang that killer! I want to see it! I want to hear that neck of his crack with my own two ears!
Charlie Hayes: What's the sentence going to be?
Judge James Edward Scott: The court convenes at eleven at the church. Get there early if you want a seat.
Howard Hayes: I want to know now.
Judge James Edward Scott: Well, what you want and what you get are not one and the same.
Charlie Hayes: Now listen, Sheriff. I've got something to say so pay attention because I don't like to repeat. Us Hayes are in town on a matter of importance. We get real annoyed if some sly sheriff like yourself took to interfering. So you just keep your nose in your own pocket and maybe you'll get to see the sun go down.
Judge James Edward Scott: Wiley, just what did you expect to do when you came on as Sheriff here?
Sheriff Barney Wiley: I didn't say I wouldn't do the job. I'm just not interested in committing suicide, that's all. Are you?
Myra Owens: You always expect people to do the right. Sometimes they just do the easy.
Cora Johnson: Charlie, the trial's over.
Howard Hayes: I told you we'd be late. I told you!
Cora Johnson: Rudy's guilty. Murder in the first degree's what the jury said.
Charlie Hayes: Of course he's guilty. We know that. What about the sentence.
Cora Johnson: Judge is going to do that at 11:00.
Charlie Hayes: Well, we ain't too late at all.
Deputy Floyd: Is there going to be a gunfight? They'll try and bust out Rudy, won't they?
Judge James Edward Scott: No, they got a better idea. They'd rather I set him free. How is he behaving?
Deputy Floyd: Like a man with lots of future.
Sheriff Barney Wiley: I wouldn't want to be singled out as the man who hanged Rudy.
Judge James Edward Scott: That seems to be a distinction they reserve for me.
Judge James Edward Scott: It is now the obligation of this court to pass sentence. Ordinarily, in a case of this kind sentence would be simple and obvious... but in this case there seem to be conflicting issues. As many of you know there has been talk of banishment. It seems to be the will of a number of people. Mrs. Quary has asked for it and as the widow of the deceased certainly deserves consideration. A committee of the town's most respected citizens has asked for it and their opinion must carry weight with the court. Will the prisoner rise. Is there anything you'd like to say?
