Movie Quotes

Peter Appleton:
[comes across Adele at the cemetery] I didn't know you were here.
Adele:
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.
Adele:
People get hurt sometimes, we can't always help it. So are you really a Communist?
Peter Appleton:
No, I'm really not.
Adele:
I didn't think so. Only a capitalist could get The Majestic up and running.
Peter Appleton:
Great endorsement. Can I call you as a witness?
Adele:
If it helps.
Peter Appleton:
Thanks.
Adele:
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."
Adele:
You're not serious.
Peter Appleton:
What's wrong with it?
Adele:
Everything.
Peter Appleton:
Be more specific.
Adele:
Aside from the fact that this is a free country, and you can be a Communist if you want to be, 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.
Adele:
Damn right! It doesn't make it any less rigged. It's called a witch hunt. And there's burden of proof, innocence before guilt.
Peter Appleton:
In law school, but the rest of us live in the real world. I mess with these guys, I go to jail.
Adele:
All the more reason to fight them.
Peter Appleton:
Like Luke would've done? Go ahead, say it.
Adele:
Yes, like Luke would have done.
Peter Appleton:
God, here it comes. Tell me again what a great guy Luke was. I haven't heard that enough!
Adele:
He would have stood up.
Peter Appleton:
Well, he's not here to vouch for that. We have to take your word! Everybody's memory of Luke is a little rose-colored. Besides, I'm not Luke. While he was liberating Europe, I was running the PX. He couldn't wait to save the world! I was happy not to go! I didn't want to end up like him. I wanted to survive! You stand for a cause you get mowed down. Look. Look!
[Adele observes the many graves of the soldiers]
Peter Appleton:
That's the real world. I want my goddamn life back, Adele. Is that so hard to understand?
