Judge: Be very careful of the tone you take with strangers. And bring Mr. Bardale another round now.
Bardale: What are you at?
Judge: You've been released from prison, newborn in the world, off the bus just minutes. You like it?
Bardale: Look, if you're some queer thinks he got lucky...
Judge: Queer? Since the age of 15, Mr. Bardale you've released six times but your total time outside prison is less than a year.
Bardale: You a cop?
Judge: You're out this time after having served 8 years for robbery with violence. Never been tried for most of what you've done.
Bardale: Parole officer? I got 24 hours to report in.
Judge: Two murders. The girl in Tacoma your last time out. And the man who picked you up hitchhiking. You were 17. He was homosexual. Others you killed in prison. I admire your capacity for action. I want to keep you in the world. Your nature can serve a higher purpose.
Bardale: You want to keep me from going back to prison?
Judge: Without me you'll be in custody within days. Sooner, perhaps. I will keep you in the world.
Bardale: You're a lawyer, right?
Judge: No, Mr. Bardale, I'm not. I'm a judge.
