Jason McCord: What about him, Frank? What about your son? Oh, he'll stay with you. And he'll run with you. But why, Frank? Because he loves you? No, because he loves a memory. The memory of a father he had for ten years before you left him in that orphanage. Yes, he'll stay with you, Frank. And if you're caught, he'll stand with you on another scaffold in another place and he'll die with you. Why Frank? Don't you want a chance to prove to him that you've changed? Talk to him, Frank. Talk to him now.
Frank Allison: You blame this town for putting me up here. You blame them for all that's happened. Maybe I did too. I blamed this town and a hundred just like it for every mistake I made. But we're both wrong, son. I put myself up here. I'm guilty. I'm guilty. Lon, do you understand me? Men change, and I'm no exception. Your life is up ahead. It can be a full life if you make it one. Do it, boy. Do it! Don't make the mistakes I made! I don't want you to change. Because... I love you, son.
Frank Allison: A man kills for four years... kills to stay alive. Then one day they tell him to go home and forget all about it. He tries, but when he gets backed into a corner, frightened... You remember one thing - how to kill. But now it's different. It's not legal anymore. So, he starts to run and he stays alive any way he can.
