    • Ivy: Doctor, what's your opinion of this electrical chair? Coogan: Well, it's a handsome piece of furniture but I can't say I'd want it in my front parlor. Ivy: Do you think it's a humane form of execution? Coogan: I guess the people who could answer that aren't talkin'.

    • Stamp: What are you doing playing poker this time of day? Hec: Just amplifying my very small income.

    • Hec: Folks around here have seen a hangin' but they have never seen an electrocution. Durham: I guess you can't stop progress.
