The Green Mile (1999) Poster

Sam Rockwell: 'Wild Bill' Wharton



  • William 'Wild Bill' Wharton : [Eduard has just been executed, and Paul comes up to the Mile to find Wild Bill sitting on his bed, ripping out chunks of his pillow and throwing the feathers around, singing loudly]  Barbecue, me and you! Stinky pinky, pew, pew! Or dilly, Jilly, Hilly or Bob! It was a french-fried Cajun named Delacroix!

    Paul Edgecomb : [Paul roughly hits his baton against Wild Bill's bars]  You are about ten seconds away from spending the rest of your life in the padded room!

    [Wild Bill, who never takes an order or refuses to give out mayhem, stops immediately] 

  • William 'Wild Bill' Wharton : [after being put in solitary confinement]  All I wanted me was a little cornbread, motherfuckers! All I wanted me was a little cornbread!

  • Harry Terwilliger : Can you believe this? The son of a bitch pissed on me!

    William 'Wild Bill' Wharton : Y'all like that? I'm currently cooking up some turds, to go with it. Nice soft 'uns. Uhhh! Have'em out to y'all tomorrow.

  • Wild Bill Wharton : Come on, fuckstick! No sneaking up on me this time. We'll go man to man.

  • William 'Wild Bill' Wharton : [Brutus Howell hands out cold sodas to the other guards]  Hey, hey, I'm gonna get some too, ain't I?

    Brutus "Brutal" Howell : My ass you get some too.

    Paul Edgecomb : What makes you think you deserve any?

    William 'Wild Bill' Wharton : [mutters]  'Cause I got a big pecker...

  • William 'Wild Bill' Wharton : [Wild Bill grabs Coffey's arm]  Where y'all think you're goin'?

    John Coffey : You a bad man.

    William 'Wild Bill' Wharton : That's right, nigger. Bad as you'd want.

    Paul Edgecomb : HEY! You keep a civil tongue on my block!

  • William 'Wild Bill' Wharton : [about to pass out from drugs]  I don't see why white man has to sit in a nigger electric chair. White man should have his own damn electric chair.

  • Klaus Detterick : [opening scene] 

    [We see a large group of poor white men running through a meadow with shotguns and barking dogs following them] 

    Klaus Detterick : [screen cuts to black]  KATIE! CORA!

    William 'Wild Bill' Wharton : [whispers heavily]  Ya like your sister? Ya make any noise, ya know what happens?

  • William 'Wild Bill' Wharton : [Percy, zombie-like, approaches Wild Bill]  Boy, watchu lookin' at? Watchu lookin' at? You limp noodle. Ya wanna kiss my ass? Ya wanna suck my dick?

    [the two stare at each other for a moment. Two tears fall from Percy's eyes before he pulls out his gun and shoots Wild Bill] 

  • Wild Bill Wharton : You love your sister? You make any noise, you know what happens. I'm gonna kill her instead of you. Understand?

  • Paul Edgecomb : [while strapping the straight jacket]  C'mon Wild Bill, you're gonna walk your walk.

    Wild Bill Wharton : Don't you call me that! Wild Bill Hickok was no range-rider! He was just another bushwackin' John Law! Dumb sonofabitch sat with his back to the door, kilt by a drunk!

    Brutus "Brutal" Howell : Oh my suds and body, a history lesson! Boy, you just never know just what your gonna get when you come to work everyday on the Green Mile.

  • Wild Bill Wharton : [Removing his belt]  You can come in here on you legs, but you'll go out on you backs. Billy the kid gon' guarantee you that.
