Prison guard:
Tell me something sister, what is a nun doing in a place like this? Shouldn't you be teaching children? Didn't you know what this man has done? How he killed them kids?

Sister Helen Prejean:
What he was involved with was evil. I don't condone it. I just don't see the sense of killing people to say that killing people's wrong.

Prison guard:
You know what the Bible say, 'An eye for an eye'.

Sister Helen Prejean:
You know what else the Bible ask for death as a punishment? For adultery, prostitution, homosexuality, trespass upon sacred grounds, profane in a sabbath and contempt to parents.

Prison guard:
I ain't gonna get no Bible quote from no nun cause I'm gonna lose.
