Quotes from

The Jailer: They look different after a few months in solitary, don't they, sir?


The Interrogator: You fake! The hero of the resistance who outwitted the Gestapo for his own vanity. The martyr for the Church whose only resistance is for his own pride. His Eminence, the Cardinal, who could steal the estimation of the world to justify a miserable little tyke of a backstreet drab who smelt of fish!
The Cardinal: Forgiveness!
The Interrogator: Did you preach forgiveness up there in your fine pulpit, forgiveness for those who stole?
The Cardinal: Of course.
The Interrogator: Didn't they have to give back what they'd stolen?
The Cardinal: How can you give back honor?


The Interrogator: You're an enemy of society, like the schizophrenic, of the paranoiac. You're dangerous, because you mislead the poor, the uneducated, the silly. Only because you're wrongheaded. In time, we'll get to the root of the trouble. And you can be cured.
The Cardinal: Your believe it?
The Interrogator: Yes, I do believe it.
The Cardinal: God give me cunning against your skill.
