The Verdict Quotes

Paul Newman as Frank Galvin

  • (Paul Newman) "How did you settle on the amount?"
  • (Edward Binns) "We thought it was just."
  • (Paul Newman) "You thought it was just?"
  • (Edward Binns) "Yes."
  • (Paul Newman) "Because it struck me, um, how neatly 'three' went into this figure: 210,000. That means I would keep seventy."

  • (Edward Binns) "Nothing we can do can make that woman well."
  • (Paul Newman) "And no one will know the truth."
  • (Edward Binns) "What is the truth?"
  • (Paul Newman) "That that poor girl put her trust into the -- into the hands of two men who took her life. She's in a coma. Her life is gone. She has no home, no family. She's tied to a machine. She has no friends. And the people who should care for her; her doctors -- and you and me; have been bought off to look the other way. We've been paid to look the other way. I came here to take your money. I brought snapshots to show you so I could get your money. I can't do it; I can't take it. 'Cause if I take the money I'm lost. I'll just be a -- rich ambulance chaser. I can't do it. I can't take it."
  • (Paul Newman) "Your honor, with all due respect: if you're going to try my case for me, I wish you wouldn't lose it."
  • (Paul Newman) "I'm her attorney."
  • (Paul Newman) "You couldn't hack it as a lawyer. You were a bag man for the boys downtown and you still are, I know about you."
  • (Paul Newman) "You know, so much of the time we're just lost. We say, "Please, God, tell us what is right; tell us what is true." And there is no justice: the rich win, the poor are powerless. We become tired of hearing people lie. And after a time, we become dead -- a little dead. We think of ourselves as victims -- and we become victims. We become -- we become weak. We doubt ourselves, we doubt our beliefs. We doubt our institutions. And we doubt the law. But today you are the law. You ARE the law. Not some book -- not the lawyers -- not the, a marble statue -- or the trappings of the court. See those are just symbols of our desire to be just. They are -- they are, in fact, a prayer: a fervent and a frightened prayer. In my religion, they say, "Act as if ye had faith -- and faith will be given to you." IF -- if we are to have faith in justice, we need only to believe in ourselves. And ACT with justice. See, I believe there is justice in our hearts."

James Mason as Ed Concannon

  • (James Mason) "I know how you feel. You don't believe me, but I do know. I'm going to tell you something that I learned when I was your age. I'd prepared a case and old man White said to me, "How did you do?" And, uh, I said, "Did my best." And he said, "You're not paid to do your best. You're paid to win." And that's what pays for this office -- pays for the pro bono work that we do for the poor -- pays for the type of law that you want to practice -- pays for my whiskey -- pays for your clothes -- pays for the leisure we have to sit back and discuss philosophy as we're doing tonight. We're paid to win the case. You finished your marriage. You wanted to come back and practice the law. You wanted to come back to the world. Welcome back."

James Handy as Kevin Doneghy

  • (James Handy) "You guys -- you guys are all the same. The doctors at the hospital, you -- it's always what I'm going to do for you. And then you screw up, and it's, "Ah, we did the best that we could, I'm dreadfully sorry." And people like us live with your mistakes the rest of our lives."

  • (Milo O'Shea) "I know full well she can't, Frank. You see the padre on your way out; he'll punch your ticket -- you follow me?"
  • (Milo O'Shea) "It seems to me, a fellow's trying to come back, he'd take the settlement, get a record for himself. I, myself. would take it and run like a thief."

Lindsay Crouse as Kaitlin

He told me to change the '1' to a '9' -- or else -- or else he said, he said he'd fire me. He said I'd never work again. Who were these men? Who were these men? I wanted to be a nurse."
