Juror #12 Quotes:

  • [Juror #9 has pointed out that the witness across the street had marks on her nose, indicating that she normally wore glasses]

    Juror #8: [to Juror #4] Do you wear glasses when you go to bed?

    Juror #4: No. I don't. No one wears eyeglasses to bed.

    Juror #8: It's logical to assume that *she* wasn't wearing them when she was in bed - tossing and turning, trying to fall asleep!

    Juror #3: How do *you* know?

    Juror #8: I don't *know* - I'm guessing! I'm also guessing that she probably didn't put her glasses on when she turned to look casually out of the window - and she herself testified the killing took place just as she looked out, the lights went off a split second later - she couldn't have had *time* to put them on then!

    [stops #3 from stopping him]

    Juror #8: Here's another guess: maybe she honestly thought she saw the boy kill his father - I say she only saw a blur!

    Juror #3: How do you know *what* she saw? How does he know all that? How do you know *what* kind of glasses she wore? Maybe they were sunglasses, maybe she was far-sighted! What do you *know* about her?

    Juror #8: I only know the woman's eyesight is in question now!

    Juror #11: She had to be able to identify a person sixty feet away, at night, without glasses.

    Juror #2: You can't send someone off to die on evidence like that!

    Juror #3: Oh, don't give me that.

    Juror #8: Don't you think the woman *might* have made a mistake?

    Juror #3: [stubbornly] No!

    Juror #8: It's not *possible?*

    Juror #3: No, it's not possible!

    Juror #8: [gets up and speaks to Juror #12] Is it possible?

    Juror #12: [nods] Not guilty.

    Juror #8: [goes to #10] You think he's guilty?

    [#10 shakes his head "no"]

    Juror #3: *I* think he's guilty!

    Juror #8: [ignores #3; goes to #4] How about you?

    Juror #4: [looks at #8, pauses, then shakes head] No... I'm convinced. Not guilty.

    Juror #3: [shocked, having just lost all support] What's the matter with ya?

    Juror #4: I have a reasonable doubt now.

    Juror #9: Eleven to one!

  • Juror #8: Look, there was one alleged eye witness to this killing. Someone else claims he heard the killing, saw the boy run out afterwards and there was a lot of circumstantial evidence. But, actually, those two witnesses were the entire case for the prosecution. Supposing they're wrong?

    Juror #12: What do you mean, supposing they're wrong? What's the point of having witnesses at all?

    Juror #8: Could they be wrong?

    Juror #12: What are you trying to say? Those people sat on the stand under oath.

    Juror #8: They're only people. People make mistakes. Could they be wrong?

    Juror #12: Well, no, I don't think so.

    Juror #8: Do you 'know' so?

    Juror #12: Oh, come on. Nobody can know a thing like that. This isn't an exact science.

    Juror #8: That's right, it isn't.
