        Tom: What were the Nazi rallies in Germany like? Is this how it started? Is this how this kind of madness and hate swept over masses of normal people? People like you and me? I've asked myself that question and I think I don't like the answer - because the truth is, this kind of thing happens all too easily. It's just a matter of chemistry - measured doses of despair and dissatisfaction, add a pinch of someone to blame it on, throw in a catalyst, a maniac like Martin Barrow. He stirs the brew up and the reaction's complete, that's when it ignites and takes off on its own. Hate is like a chain reaction, it keeps on going, feeds on itself, infects others. That's why people like Martin Barrow never run short when they spread hate around, it always comes back to them.

      • Kevin: You don't seem to be too surprised by all this.
        Mrs. Barrow: It's what I expected from Martin, Detective. He's been working toward this for the last 20 years.
        Kevin: You must have some idea who wanted him killed.
        Mrs. Barrow: I don't know anyone who didn't. Martin devoted his life to making enemies.
        Frank: Anyone in particular?
        Mrs. Barrow: Well that was the one thing Marin was liberal about, young man. He, ah, inspired hate in every race, color and creed.

      • Mrs. Barrow: If you really are trying to find Martin's killer, I don't envy you because there wasn't a sane person in this city who didn't what him dead.

      • Elaine: We had a saying in law school, "If you can't win by the facts, try the law. If you can't win by the law, try the victim.

      • (closing commentary)
        Tom: The concept of hate's something that's easy to take for granted, we all have something we hate, somebody. When it really gets to you is when it's directed at whole people because of the color of their skin or the place they worship. Those people use hate in it's purest form, undiluted by any trace of compassion or understanding. It's strong stuff, hard to work with. They have to remain vigilant at all times feeding the hate, nurturing it. I though my story was going to be about people like Barrow, or Adams, who can harden themselves, keep their hate strong, but it isn't. It's about Rick Brennam and the way one moment of seeing your enemy as a person can make that hate evaporate. At least that's what I'm telling myself so I can sleep tonight.
