Andy: My wife used to say l'm a hard man to know Like a closed book. Complained about it all the time. She's beautiful. God, I loved her. But I just didn't know how to show it, that's all. I killed her, Red. I didn't pull the trigger. But f drove her away, That's why she died Because of meJ the way I am.
Red: That doesn't make you a murderer. Bad husband, maybe. Felt bad about it if you want to. But you didn 't pull the trigger,
Andy: No. I didn't. Somebody else did, and I wound up in here Bad luck, I guess.
Andy: It floats around. Has to land on somebody. It was my turn, that's aU I was in the path of the tornado'. I didn't expect the storm would last as long as it has. You think you 'II ever get out of here ?
Red: Me ? Yeah. One day when I got a long, white beard and two or three marbles rotling around upstairs. They 'II let me out.
Andy:Ten you where l'd go. Zihuatanejo.
Andy: Zihuatanejo. lt's in r,Aexico. A little place on the Pacific Ocean. You know what the Mexicans say about the Pacific ? They say it has no memory. That's where t want to live the rest of my life. A warm place with no memocY. Op8n up a little hote! right on the beach. Buy some worthless old boat and fix it up new. Take my guests out charter fishing.
Red : Zihuatanejo ?
Aridy: in a ptace like that, f could use a man that knows how to get things.
Red: I don't think I could make it on the outside, Andy. l've been in here most of my life. l'm an institutional man now. Just like Brooks was.
Andy: Well, you underestimate yourself.
Red: I don't think so. In here l'm the guy who can get things for Vou, sure but outside all you need is the Yellow Pages. Hell, I wouldn't even know where to begin. Pacific Ocean ? Shit! About to scare me to death, somethin'that big.
Andy: Not me. I didn't shoot my wife and I didn't shoot her lover, and whatever mistakes I made l've paid for them and then some. That hotel, that boat... I don 't think that's too much to ask.
Red: I don't think you ought'o be doing this to yourself, Andy This is shitty pipB dreamsl I mean Mexico's in the way the hell down there, and you're in hera, and that's the way it is!
Andy: Yeah, right. That's the way it is. lt's down there, and l'm in here. I guess it comes down to a simple choice, really. Get busy living... or get busy dying.
