1.I'm sorry for what I am.
2.What do you want me to do John? I'll do it. You want me to let you walk out of here and see how far you get?
3.Melinda Moores: Why do you have so many scars? Who hurt you so badly?
John Coffey: Don't hardly remember, ma'am.
4.When I die and I stand before God awaiting judgment and he asks me why I let one of HIS miracles die, what am I gonna say, that it was my job?
5.You tell God the Father it was a kindness you done. I know you hurtin' and worryin', I can feel it on you, but you oughta quit on it now. Because I want it over and done. I do. I'm tired, boss. Tired of bein' on the road, lonely as a sparrow in the rain. Tired of not ever having me a buddy to be with, or tell me where we's coming from or going to, or why. Mostly I'm tired of people being ugly to each other. I'm tired of all the pain I feel and hear in the world everyday. There's too much of it. It's like pieces of glass in my head all the time. Can you understand?
6.Now why would you want to do a foolish thing like that?
