  • (Al Pacino) "The concept of free will. And what is the most important thing one should remember when entering the courtroom?"
  • (Leelee Sobieski) "That insanity is a legal concept. It's not a medical or psychiatric term, but despite the fact that insanity's a legal concept, it doesn't mean that someone's not sick."

A very important meeting. Meeting that was going to change my life, was gonna make me into somebody important, make all my dreams come true. So, I went to this meeting on this dissertation, and I left her there by herself. Now I could've taken her with me, I could've left her with friends, I could've post-poned the meeting -- but I chose not to because I was in a hurry. Anyway, I left her there alone. At the time, I was working on a case. This guy had strangled six women. We were very close to nailing him. He was upset, and he wanted to get back at me, so he came to my apartment only I wasn't there. At that time, I wasn't as concerned for security. I was careless, so he broke the door down and he went in, and did things to my baby sister. Catherine was her name; Katie. He did things that you wouldn't do to an animal that was bred for slaughter. Anyway, when they caught him, he laughed and said it took him 88 minutes. It took him 88 minutes to hack my sister to bits."
  • (Al Pacino) "Whoever stole that tape knows the meaning of 88 minutes."
  • (Voice on phone) "You have 88 minutes to live."
  • (Al Pacino) "What?"
  • (Voice on phone) "You know how long 88 minutes can be, don't you? That's 11:45 AM."
  • (Al Pacino) "Who's this?"
  • (Al Pacino) "Hello, everyone. Jon Forster's dead. His execution was not a cause for celebration, nor is it an vindication. It is a chapter in the road to justice and recovery. I personally don't believe in capital punishment. I do believe in the rights of victims. I do believe that they deserve recompense, no matter how significant or insignificant it may be in comparison to the loss suffered. I've suffered such a loss and, like some of you here, I have spent those sleepless nights trying to desperately to squelch down that vile-ish instinct for revenge. And I have wondered if this pain will ever abate. I've learned that time does not heal the wound. It will, though, in it's most merciful way, blunt the edge ever so slightly. So -- what is the first thing one should remember when entering a courtroom?"
