Max Cady:
I wanted to meet you, see what you're like. I see you're a nice person. That's all.

Danielle Bowden:
You're not gonna hurt me, are you?

Max Cady:
No, I'm not gonna hurt you at all. There's no hurtin' here, Danielle. 'Tween us, there's no anger, nothin'. Just a search for truth. I mean, did you judge me, did you get angry at me when you caught me smokin' the grass? Hmm?

Danielle Bowden:
No.

Max Cady:
But your parents, they judged you. They got plenty angry at you, didn't they?

Danielle Bowden:
Yeah.

Max Cady:
Mm-hmm. They punished you for their sins. What did they do?

Danielle Bowden:
They, uh... My dad... They just yelled a whole lot and, um... My mom cried... and my Dad said I couldn't drive the Cherokee.

Max Cady:
I'd say they punished you for their sins, and you resent that, and you should resent it. But Professor 'Do-Right' has a little advice for you. You shouldn't damn 'em. Don't judge 'em. Just forgive 'em, for they know not what they do.

Danielle Bowden:
Well, um, why do you hate my father?

Max Cady:
I don't hate him at all. Oh no, I pray for him. I'm here to help him. I mean, we all make mistakes, Danielle. You and I have. At least we try to admit it. Don't we?...But your daddy, he don't. Every man carries a circle of hell around his head like a halo. Your daddy too. Every man... Every man has to go through hell to reach his paradise. You know what paradise is?...Salvation. 'Cause your daddy's not happy. Your mommy's not happy. And, you know what? You're not happy. Are you? You know, I think I might have found a companion, a companion for that long walk to the light.
