The Majestic2001

Peter Appleton:
[Seeing Adele at the cemetery] I didn't know anyone was here.

I was just... saying goodbye.

Peter Appleton:
Adele, I'm sorry the way things turned out. I never meant to hurt anyone, least of all you.

People get hurt sometimes, we can't always help it. So are you really a communist?

Peter Appleton:
No, I'm really not.

I didn't think so. Only a dyed-in-the-wool capitalist could have gotten The Majestic up and running.

Peter Appleton:
Great endorsement. Can I call you as a witness?

Eh, if it helps. So what will you tell the committee?

Peter Appleton:
Tell them what they want to hear: "Sorry, I won't do it again, blah, blah."

You're not serious.

Peter Appleton:
What's wrong with it?


Peter Appleton:
Could you be a little more specific?

Aside from the fact that this is a free country, and you can be a communist if you want to be a communist - leaving that aside, if you're accused falsely you have a duty as well as a right to stand up and suggest they drop dead.

Peter Appleton:
Emile Zola, you feel strongly about this.

Damn right I do!

Peter Appleton:
Great, but it doesn't make the game any less rigged. There's a reason it's called a witch-hunt.

And there's burden of proof, innocence before guilt.

Peter Appleton:
Maybe in law school. But the rest of us have to live in the real world and in the real world, I mess with these guys, I go to jail.

All the more reason to fight them.

Peter Appleton:
Like Luke would've done? Go ahead, say it.

Yes. Like Luke would have done.

Peter Appleton:
God, here it comes. Tell me again what a great guy Luke was, 'cause God I haven't heard that enough!

He wouldn've stood up to them.

Peter Appleton:
Yeah well, he's not here... to vouch for that, is he? We have to take your word for it! And forgive me but everybody's memory of Luke is a little rose-colored in this town. Besides, I'm not Luke. While he was liberating Europe, I was running the PX. He couldn't wait to save the world! Me, I was happy not to go overseas!
