Peter Appleton: [comes across Adele at the cemetery] I didn't know you were here.
Adele: I was just... saying goodbye.
Peter Appleton: Adele, I'm sorry the way things turned out. I never meant to hurt anyone, least of all you.
Adele: People get hurt sometimes, we can't always help it. So are you really a Communist?
Peter Appleton: No, I'm really not.
Adele: I didn't think so. Only a capitalist could get The Majestic up and running.
Peter Appleton: Great endorsement. Can I call you as a witness?
Adele: If it helps.
Peter Appleton: Thanks.
Adele: So what will you tell the Committee?
Peter Appleton: Tell them what they want to hear: "Sorry, I won't do it again, blah, blah."
Adele: You're not serious.
Peter Appleton: What's wrong with it?
Adele: Everything.
Peter Appleton: Be more specific.
Adele: Aside from the fact that this is a free country, and you can be a Communist if you want to be, leaving that aside, if you're accused falsely you have a duty as well as a right to stand up and suggest they drop dead.
Peter Appleton: Emile Zola, you feel strongly about this.
Adele: Damn right! It doesn't make it any less rigged. It's called a witch hunt. And there's burden of proof, innocence before guilt.
Peter Appleton: In law school, but the rest of us live in the real world. I mess with these guys, I go to jail.
Adele: All the more reason to fight them.
Peter Appleton: Like Luke would've done? Go ahead, say it.
Adele: Yes, like Luke would have done.
Peter Appleton: God, here it comes. Tell me again what a great guy Luke was. I haven't heard that enough!
Adele: He would have stood up.
Peter Appleton: Well, he's not here to vouch for that. We have to take your word! Everybody's memory of Luke is a little rose-colored. Besides, I'm not Luke. While he was liberating Europe, I was running the PX. He couldn't wait to save the world! I was happy not to go! I didn't want to end up like him. I wanted to survive! You stand for a cause you get mowed down. Look. Look!
[Adele observes the many graves of the soldiers]
Peter Appleton: That's the real world. I want my goddamn life back, Adele. Is that so hard to understand?

Emmett Smith: [coming downstairs] Luke, something's wrong! Harry missed the reel change.
Peter Appleton: [distracted] What?
Emmett Smith: Harry missed the reel change.
Peter Appleton: [running up to the projector's booth] Harry?
[he enters the projector's booth and see's Harry on the floor]
Peter Appleton: Harry. Jesus!
[he kneels by his side, he turns to Emmett]
Peter Appleton: Go get Doc!
Emmett Smith: [calling] Doc! Doc! Harry's in trouble! Come quick!
[Doc heads for the projector's booth]
Harry Trimble: [weak] Oh, no. No.
Peter Appleton: What, Harry? What?
Harry Trimble: I missed the damn reel change.
Peter Appleton: [quietly] It's all right. You just lay still. Doc's on his way. I'm here.

Peter Appleton: The 10th Ammendment is off the table. But there is another Ammendment I'd like to invoke. I wonder if anyone here is familiar with it. "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion."
Congressman Doyle: You're out of order!
Peter Appleton: "Shall make no law... respecting - "
Congressman Doyle: My chamber will come to order!
Peter Appleton: "An establishment of religion... or prohibiting free exercise thereof... or abridging freedom of speech, or of the press... or of the right to petition for a redress of grievances."
Congressman Doyle: Do not presume to lecture this Committee!
Peter Appleton: The First Ammendment. It's what we're about, if we'd live up to it. It's part of the contract every citizen has here. Even though the Constitution and the Bill of Rights... are just pieces of paper with signatures on them... they're the only contracts that we have that are defintely not subject... to renegotiation. Not by you, Mr.Chairman.
Congressman Doyle: Mr.Appleton!
Peter Appleton: Not by you, Mr.Clyde.
Congressman Doyle: Stand down!
Peter Appleton: Not by anyone, ever. Too many people have paid in blood.
Congressman Doyle: Enough, sir! You are out of order!
Peter Appleton: People like Luke Trimble and all the sons of Lawson, California. And they deserve better than this. All you boys do.
Congressman Doyle: I will have order or I will clear this chamber!
Peter Appleton: When you get right down to it, fell as... that's all I have to say to you.

Congressman Doyle: Are you asking this committe to believe that you attended the meeting of a communist organization because of a girl?
Peter Appleton: Yes sir... I'm sure that even a majority counselor like yourself has familiar with the concept of impressing a girl!

Bob Leffert: I knew Luke Trimble. I didn't like him much. Not saying he's a bad guy. Just rubbed me the wrong way. You know that feelin'? Somebody rubs you the wrong way, and you can't even explain why? You kinda rub me that way. Not that it makes you Luke. So, I wanna know is what kinda game are you runnin'? Who are you really?
Peter Appleton: Just a guy trying to figure things out.
Bob Leffert: This town's had enough heartbreak. Too much. Me, I think you're settin' everybody up for more. I hope I'm wrong. I haven't had to kill anybody since the war.

[Instead of a piano piece by Franz Liszt, Luke plays a boogie-woogie tune]
Irene Terwilliger: Really, Luke! That's no way to treat Mr. Liszt. Stop that! Stop it, stop it! Who taught you to play like that? I demand to know. Where on earth did you learn to play such a thing?
Emmett Smith: I taught him that... when you weren't looking!

[Inside the abandoned movie theater]
Harry Trimble: That's why we call it The Majestic. Any man, woman, child could buy their ticket, walk right in. Here they'd be, here we'd be. "Yes sir, yes ma'am. Enjoy the show." And in they'd come entering a palace, like in a dream, like in heaven. Maybe you had worries and problems out there, but once you came through those doors, they didn't matter anymore. And you know why? Chaplin, that's why. And Keaton and Lloyd. Garbo, Gable, and Lombard, and Jimmy Stewart and Jimmy Cagney. Fred and Ginger. They were gods. And they lived up there. That was Olympus. Would you remember if I told you how lucky we felt just to be here? To have the privilege of watching them. I mean, this television thing. Why would you want to stay at home and watch a little box? Because it's convenient? Because you don't have to get dressed up, because you could just sit there? I mean, how can you call that entertainment, alone in your living room? Where's the other people? Where's the audience? Where's the magic? I'll tell you, in a place like this, the magic is all around you. The trick is to see it.

Peter Appleton: I thought this was a democracy.
Leo Kubelsky: The Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, they're all just pieces of paper with signatures on them. And you know what a piece of paper with a signature is, a contract. Something that can be renegotiated at any time. Just so happens that the House un-American activities committee is renegotiating the contract this time around. Next time it will be somebody else, but it will always be somebody.

Luke Trimble: When bullies rise up, the rest of us have to beat them back down, whatever the cost. That's a simple idea I suppose, but one worth giving everything for.
