Matthew McConaughey: Danny Buck
Danny Buck : [describing signs that confirm Bernie Tiede as gay] And the kicker is he always wore sandals.
[scene cuts away]
Townsperson : Our Lord and Savior always wore sandals, and he never married. And he had twelve disciples, and I don't think any of them ever married. And the apostle Paul, he was a lifelong bachelor. And you never heard anybody in the New Testament say that they were a bunch of queers.
Danny Buck : Ladies and gentlemen, after listening to all the evidence, I'm sure that you will agree that the defendant is a liar, a coward, and a backshooter. Now, come on. That's got to be about the lowest thing a man could ever do, ain't it? Shoot a little old lady in the back? Four times. There is no doubt in my mind that Bernie Tiede is a calculating, evil actor. He fooled a whole town for nine months. Now if he can do that, there ain't no telling what he'll do if you let him back on the streets. That poor woman stayed frozen stiff for nine whole months. In a freezer. It took two days to thaw her out. Just so they could perform a proper autopsy.
Danny Buck : Now one of the main things and why I have this job, and why I feel like I'm good at it is, you see, I'm naturally suspicious.
