    • Charles Ledbetter: Wait a minute! Just wait a minute! He's gonna call! The Governor's gonna call! He's gonna give me a stay! Yes he will. No!
      The Governor's gonna call! [Gets strapped in electric chair] He's got to! He's got to!
      Niles Talbot: [Breaking the fourth wall] Oh, knock it off, Charlie. Quit being so damn chickensh*t. You killed somebody now you're gonna do the hot squat. It all evens out, don't it baby?
      Charles Ledbetter: Why are you doing this?
      Niles Talbot: [Breaking the fourth wall] You know, people tell me most executioners never look the prisoners in the eye, afraid they're gonna get spooked or something. Not me, I always look.
