[Quoting Medgar Evers] Myrlie Evers: I don't know if I'm going to heaven or to hell, but I'm going from Jackson. Bobby: Grandpa Russell had guns all over his house and we don't have any guns. Drew: I have a gun. Bobby: Well, yours is a nuclear powered lasergun. I'm talking about handguns and rifles. [Quoting Medgar Evers] Myrlie Evers: When you hate, the only one that suffers is you because most of the people you hate don't know it and the rest don't care. [about Medgar Evers' widow pursuing the murder case for decades] Bobby DeLaughter: I think about her keeping this thing alive all this time. Imagine a woman loving a man so much. Charlie Crisco: Hell, I can't even get a woman to love me while I'm still alive. [Addressing the jury in summation] Bobby DeLaughter: Today, thirty years later, I'm asking you twelve ladies and gentlemen to act boldly; to hold this defendant accountable and find him guilty... simply because it is right, it is just, and Lord knows, it is time. Is it ever too late to do the right thing? Bobby DeLaughter: I don't see what difference it makes if a man was bushwhacked yesterday, today, or 27 damn years ago. Murder is murder. And it's still my job to bring the son of a bitch to justice. And it's still your job to help me. Delamar Dennis: No! I did my job. I testified against the Klan. They shot out my windows, blew up my car, they hunted and harassed me for twenty five years. Don't that get me even for the wrong I done? Bobby DeLaughter: We never get even for the wrong we've done.
