The Green Mile (1999) Poster

James Cromwell: Warden Hal Moores



  • Hal : [after Del's execution]  WHAT IN THE BLUE FUCK WAS THAT? There's puke all over the floor up there. And that smell! I had Van Hayes open both doors but that smell's not going out for five damn years that's what I'm bettin'. And that asshole, Wharton, is singing about it. You can hear him up there!

    Paul Edgecomb : Can he carry a tune?

    Hal : Okay, boys, what in the hell happened?

    Paul Edgecomb : An execution. A successful one.

    Hal : How in the name of Christ can you call that a success?

    Paul Edgecomb : Eduard Delacroix is dead.

    [to Percy] 

    Paul Edgecomb : Isn't he?

  • Hal : Percy. Something to say?

    Percy Wetmore : I didn't know the sponge was supposed to be wet.

    Hal : How many years you spend pissing on a toilet seat before someone told you to put it up?

    Paul Edgecomb : Percy fucked up, Hal, pure and simple.

    Hal : Is that your official position?

    Paul Edgecomb : Don't you think it should be?

  • Hal : It's a tumor, Paul. A brain tumor.


    Hal : They got X-ray pictures of it. The size of a lemon, they said... way deep down inside where they can't operate.


    Hal : I haven't told her. I can't think of how.

    [he starts crying] 

    Hal : For the life of me, Paul, I can't think of how to tell my wife... she's going to die!

  • Hal : [during Del's botched execution] 

    [to Paul] 

    Hal : Why don't you shut it down?

    Paul Edgecomb : He's still alive! You wanna shut it down while he's still alive?
