    • Niles Talbot: [Breaking the fourth wall] I'm a country boy, but I like the city. You know, it's big. It's dirty. Let's you know what it really is. But at night, there's all those lights. It's real purty isn't it? My name's Niles Talbot. I've been the executioner in this state for the last twelve years. When I got here from Oklahoma, I caught on as an electrician, then, after a while I got a job out to the prison, taking care of the generators. I like electricity. It's dependable, you can trust it. A lot of states do it with gas or with some lethal injection. I don't take to that. That's how you kill a dog or cat or something, not a man. It's gotta be the old electric chair for me.
