RED: I have no idea to this day what those two Italian ladies were
singin' about. Truth is, I don't want to know. Some
things are best left unsaid. I like to think they were singin'
about something so beautiful it can't be expressed in words, and makes your
heart ache because of it.
RED (V.O.) I tell you, those voices soared. Higher and farther than anybody
in a gray place dares to dream. It was like some beautiful bird flapped into our
drab little cage and made those walls dissolve away...and for the briefest of
moments - every last man at Shawshank felt free.
RED (V.O.) It pissed the warden
off something awful.
WARDEN: Open the door. Open it up! Dufrense, open this door! Turn that off! I
am warning you, Dufrense, turn that off!
HADLEY: Dufrense, you are mine now.
RED (V.O.) Andy got two weeks in the hole for that little stunt.
HADLEY: On your feet.
CON: Hey, look who's here.
HEYWOOD: You, you couldn't play somethin' good, huh? Like Hank Williams?
ANDY: They broke the door down before I could take requests.
FLOYD: Was it worth two weeks in the hole?
ANDY: Easiest time I ever did.
HEYWOOD: Oh, shit. No such thing as easy time in the hole. A week in the hole
is like a year.
SNOOZE: Damn straight.
ANDY: I had Mr. Mozart to keep me
RED: So they let you tote that record player down there, huh?
ANDY: It was in here...in here. That's the beauty of music. They can't get
that from you. Haven't you ever felt that way about music?
RED: Well I played a mean harmonica as a younger man. Lost my interest in it,
though. Didn't make much sense in
ANDY: Here's where it makes most sense. You need it so you don't forget.
ANDY: Forget that there are places in the world that aren't made out of
stone, that there's… there's something inside that they can't get to and they
can't touch. That's yours.
RED: What are you talking about?
RED: Hope. Let me tell you something, my friend. Hope is a dangerous thing.
Hope can drive a man insane. It's got no use on the inside. You'd better get
used to the idea.
e.g. Make sure the data is straight in the report.
