“Since I am innocent of this crime, sir, I find it decidedly inconvenient the gun was never found.” — Andy in Court

“‘Rehabilitated?’ That’s a bullshit word, so you just go on ahead and stamp that form there, sonny, and stop wasting my damn time. Truth is, I don’t give a shit.” — Red to Parole Board

“His first night in the joint, Andy Dufresne cost me two packs of smokes. He never made a sound…” — Red

“Yes, I think it would be fair to say I liked Andy from the start.” — Red

“It’s my life. Don’t you understand? IT’S MY LIFE!” — Andy Dufresne

“The colossal prick even managed to sound magnanimous.” — Andy

“I have no idea to this day what those two Italian ladies were singing about. Truth is, I don’t want to know. Some things are better left unsaid. I’d like to think they were singing about something so beautiful, it can’t expressed in words, and it makes your heart ache because of it. I tell you, those voices soared higher and farther than anybody in a grey place dares to dream. It was as if some beautiful bird had flapped into our drab little cage and made these walls dissolve away, and for the briefest of moments, every last man in Shawshank felt free.” — Red

“I must admit I didn’t think much of Andy first time I laid eyes on him; looked like a stiff breeze would blow him over. That was my first impression of the man.” — Red

“You know how to read, you ignorant fuck? — Andy to Bogs

“Jesus. Did I say you were good? You’re Rembrandt.” — Red

“It’s funny. On the outside, I was an honest man. Straight as an arrow. I had to come to prison to be a crook.” — Andy

“Let me tell you something my friend. Hope is a dangerous thing. Hope can drive a man insane.” — Red

“Remember, Red, hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things. And no good thing ever dies.” — Andy

“We sat and drank with the sun on our shoulders and felt like free men. Hell, we could have been tarring the roof of one of our own houses. We were the lords of all creation. As for Andy – he spent that break hunkered in the shade, a strange little smile on his face, watching us drink his beer.” — Red

“I have to remind myself that some birds aren’t meant to be caged. Their feathers are just too bright. And when they fly away, the part of you that knows it was a sin to lock them up does rejoice. Still, the place you live in is that much more drab and empty that they’re gone. I guess I just miss my friend.” — Red
