- 10078 : According to you it'll only take fifteen seconds. I think we can spare that.
- 10079 : Murder in the first degree. . . premeditated homicide. . . is the most serious charge tried in our criminal courts. You have just heard a long and complex case, gentlemen, and now it is your duty to sit down to try and separate the facts from the fancy. One man is dead. The life of another is at stake. If there is a reasonable doubt in your minds as to the guilt of the accused--then you must declare him not guilty. If--however--there is no reasonable doubt, then he must be found guilty. Whichever way you decide, the verdict must be unanimous. I urge you to deliberate honestly and thoughtfully. You are faced with a grave responsibility. Thank you, gentlemen.
- 10080 : All right. Now--you gentlemen can handle this any way you want to. I mean, I'm not going to make any rules. If we want to discuss it first and then vote, that's one way. Or we can vote right now and see how we stand.
- 10082 : Okay. All those voting guilty raise your hands. (Foreman, Jurors 2-7, 9-12 raise their hands) Eight--nine--ten--eleven--that's eleven for guilty. Okay. Not guilty? (Juror 8's hand goes up.)
- 10084 : Okay. Eleven to one. Eleven guilty, one not guilty. Now we know where we stand.
- 10085 : Okay, let's get to the facts. Number one: let's take the old man who lived on the second floor right underneath the room where the murder took place. At ten minutes after twelve on the night of the killing he heard loud noises in the upstairs apartment. He said it sounded like a fight. Then he heard the kid say to his father, 'I'm going to kill you.' A second later he heard a body falling, and he ran to the door of his apartment, looked out and saw the kid running downstairs and ut of the house. Then he called the police. They found the father with a knife in his chest.
- 10087 : Foreman: It's your turn. Juror Five: I'll pass. Foreman: That's your privilege. How about you?
- 10088 : You're right. It's the kids. The way they are--you know? They don't listen. I've got a kid. When he was eight years old he ran away from a fight. I saw him. I was so ashamed I nearly threw up. I told him right out, 'I'm gonna make a man outta you or I'm gonna bust you into little pieces trying.' When he was fifteen he hit me in the face. He's big, you know? I haven't seen him in three years. Rotten kid! I hate tough kids! You work your heart out. . . . All right. Lets get on with it. . . .
- 10089 : Juror Four: We're missing the point here. This boy--let's say he's a product of a filthy neightborhood and a broken home. We can't help that. We're not here to go into the reasons why slums are breeding grounds for crminals; they are. I know it. So do you. The children who come out of slums are potential menaces to society. Juror Ten: You said it there. I don't want any part of them, believe me.
- 10090 : Juror Five: I've lived in a slum all my life. . . Juror Ten: Now wait a second! Juror Five: I used to play in a backyard that was filled with garbage. Maybe it still smells on me. Foreman: Now, lets be reasonable. There's nothing personal--- Juror Five: There IS something personal!
- 10091 : Juror Three: Now listen to me! Juror Eight: I'm listening. Three: You pulled a real smart trick here, but you proved absolutely zero. Maybe there are ten knives like that, so what? Eight: Maybe there are. Three: The boy lied and you know it.
- 10092 : Juror Eight: Maybe he did go to the movies--maybe he didn't. And--he may have lied. Do you thing he lied? Juror Ten: Now that's a stupid question. Sure, he lied! Eight: Do you? Four: You don't have to ask me that. You know my answer. He lied. Eight: do you think he lied? Five: I--I don't know.
- 10093 : Juror Seven: Now wait a second. What are you--the guy's lawyer? Listen--there are still eleven of us who think he's guilty. You're alone. What do you think you're going to accomplish? If you want to be stubborn and hang this jury he'll just be tried again, and found guilty as sure as he's born.
- 10094 : Juror Three: What do you mean? There are no secrets in here! I know who it was. (to Five) What's the matter with you? You come in here and you vote guilty and then this slick preacher starts to tear your heart out with stories about a poor little kid who couldn't help becoming a murderer. So you change your vote. Well, if that isn't the most sickening---- Foreman: Now hold it.
