The Green Mile (1999)
Doug Hutchison: Percy Wetmore
Percy Wetmore : [while tapping Arlen's burned face after being electrocuted] Adios, Chief! Drop us a card from Hell, let us know if it's hot enough...
Brutus "Brutal" Howell : [Brutus grabs Percy's arm and pushes him away from Arlen's body] He's paid what he's owed; he's square with the house again, so keep your goddamn hands off him!
Hal : Percy. Something to say?
Percy Wetmore : I didn't know the sponge was supposed to be wet.
Hal : How many years you spend pissing on a toilet seat before someone told you to put it up?
Paul Edgecomb : Percy fucked up, Hal, pure and simple.
Hal : Is that your official position?
Paul Edgecomb : Don't you think it should be?
Paul Edgecomb : Men under strain can snap; hurt themselves, hurt others. That's why our job is talking, not yelling. You'll do better to think of this place like an intensive care ward in a hospital.
Percy Wetmore : I think of it as a bucket of piss to drown rats in! That's all! Anybody doesn't like it can kiss my ass!
Percy Wetmore : How's that sit?
[Brutal suddenly grabs Percy by the throat and pins him to the wall]
Percy Wetmore : Try it! You'll be on the bread lines before the week is out!
Percy Wetmore : What's up his ass?
Paul Edgecomb : You, always, you Percy.
Percy Wetmore : What I got a hate in you boy, that the way it is around here?
Paul Edgecomb : Why don't you just move on and take that job down in Briar Ridge? Oh yeah, I know all about it. Sounds to me like a pretty good job.
Percy Wetmore : Yeah, I might just take it too, soon as you put me up front. Yeah you heard me, I want Brutal's spot for the next execution.
Paul Edgecomb : Seeing a man die, now that's not enough, you gotta be close enough to smell his nuts cook.
Percy Wetmore : I just wanna be up front that's all. Come on, one time. And you know what, you can get rid of me, I swear.
Paul Edgecomb : And what if I say no?
Percy Wetmore : Well, I might just stick around for good, might make me a career of this... boss.
Eduard Delacroix : [In the electric chair, about to be executed] Don't forgot about Mouseville.
[Paul nods and smiles]
Percy Wetmore : [whispering] Hey!
[Del looks at Percy]
Percy Wetmore : There's no such place!
[Paul and Brutus exchange appalled looks]
Percy Wetmore : It's just a fairytale these guys told you to keep you quiet. Just thought you should know... faggot!
[Paul and Brutus look shocked]
Percy Wetmore : Well, well, well, looks like you've got yourself a new friend there, Del.
Eduard Delacroix : Don't hurt him!
Percy Wetmore : [to the guards] That the one I chased?
Paul Edgecomb : Yeah, that's the one. Del's been asking for a box' might keep it for a pet. What do you think?
Percy Wetmore : You know what? We oughta find a cigar box and some paper from the dispensary to line it with. Yeah, yeah, that should do real nice.
Paul Edgecomb : Man said get a cigar box.
Percy Wetmore : [yells repeatedly as he brings John Coffey in] Dead man! Dead man walking! We got a dead man walking, here!
Paul Edgecomb : Jesus, please us! What is he yelling about?
Percy Wetmore : [continues yelling] Dead man! Dead man walking! Dead man! Dead man walking, here!
[he walks inside, leading a cuffed John Coffey]
Percy Wetmore : We got a dead man walking, here! Dead man walking! We got a dead man walking, here...
Paul Edgecomb : Percy!
Paul Edgecomb : That's enough.
