Any of you notice it? Suppose you answer this for me. I used to play in a backyard that was full of garbage, maybe it still smells on me! What's the difference whether you get one here or at the ball game. Will you just stamp your foot when you want me to go, that'll be the body falling, alright? Ah well, a hung jury doesn't mean anything. It's probably the same thing in your business. You couldn't change my mind if you talked a 100 years! I heard a pretty good story last night.
I don't envy your job, you're faced with a grave responsibility gentlemen, thank you. I'm ready to go into court right now and declare a hung jury. Fathers don't seem to think that's important anymore. I mean it's practically all been said already, you know? Isn't this what's supposed to happen in a jury room? It may have been two hits too many. No, look, you're doing a beautiful job! I run a messenger service, The Beck and Call Company. Yeah, but you did say it revealed the motive and that's what the prosecution said. When you get them down to New Year's Eve 1972, let me know! The jury of twelve retires to the jury room, where they begin to become acquainted with their personalities and discuss the case.
You come in here and you vote guilty like everybody else and then there's golden voice preacher over here starts to tear your heart out with a lot of stories about a poor little boy who just couldn't help becoming a murderer. And what about the woman across the street? All those in favour of not guilty raise your hand. This man is a dangerous killer, you could see it. I mean look at his record. Hey look, let me ask you a question. But I wanna hear more. You know what I mean, my friend? Let's try to get this air conditioning working in here, what do you say, eh? Nobody around here's gonna tell me what words I understand and what words I don't.
Will we be much longer? I mean, come on, these six people in there, all of a sudden they act like it's some kind of mission or something. What do you mean he didn't think of it? The man asked for another vote, we're gonna have another vote. He came back, at about 3 o'clock or so and he was caught by two detectives in the hallway of his house. No, but it indicates that noone can prove that he wasn't. It was a very touching story about a black woman who. Now, whose turn is it? I thought they already have changed their mind.
You're pretty good at it! He begins to weep and says he can feel the knife being plunged into his chest. Hey, can you imagine, sitting in here for three days just for this? The court is not going to accept a hung jury. I wonder if there's anyone here that has an idea how long it would take a 6 car el train, travelling at, what, medium speed. Where has that come from? He probably figured that the body wouldn't be found till the next day. What are we gonna gain by seeing it again? No hope, no glory, very little chance of winning. Yeah, I go for that too! I mean, you know, considerin' the marmalade. Suppose you were the one on trial.
Finally, you're behaving like a reasonable man! It would save a lot of time and money. The boy lied and you know it. Usually after a couple of drinks he'd get into a fight over a woman. I just think that he's guilty. Would you knock on the door please? Hey, come on, what is this? I know he's only 18. We came out at half time and it. Ever since he was 5 years old, his father beat him up and he used his fists.
That was just an ambitious district attorney putting on a show. He was dragging his left leg and trying to hide it, because he was ashamed. I ain't putting my stock into it, but let me throw it out in the stoop, see if the cat licks it up, what do you say? I mean, all of a sudden you hear everybody. Say what you like fellas. I was wondering how well you could hear that boy's voice through the ceiling. I would like to call for another vote. You can't hear yourself think! I'm sick and tired of facts! That's exactly the point that this gentleman has been making! The old man's apartment is exactly like it, directly underneath.
He identified it in court. I thought it was very sharp the way he handled all his points one by one, in logical sequence. Well, I'll pace over to that wall and then back around this way again. Well, I was thinking we'd just sit in order of jury number: 2,3,4. This is just off the top of my head but it seems to me, I mean, if I were the kid and I'd, you know, done the stabbing and all that, I'd take a chance and go back for the knife. I think he's too bright for that.
