    Where are you going? Why don't you walk the wheel with us? What is the matter my American friend? What has upset you? Oh! I know. The bad machine doesn't know that he's a bad machine. You still don't believe it. You still don't believe you're a bad machine? To know yourself is to know God, my friend. The factory knows, that's why they put you here. You'll see... You'll find out... In time, you'll know.

    For a nation of pigs, it sures seems funny that you don't eat them! Jesus Christ forgave the bastards, but I can't! I hate! I hate you! I hate your nation! And I hate your people! And I fuck your sons and daughters because they're pigs! You're all pigs!

    I just wish for once that you could be in my shoes, Mr. Prosecutor, and then you would know something that you don't know: mercy! That the concept of a society is based on the quality of that mercy; its sense of fair play; its sense of justice! But I guess that's like asking a bear to shit in the toilet.

    The best thing to do is to get your ass out of here. Best way that you can.

  • Billy Hayes  

    Yeah, but how?

  • Max  

    Catch the midnight express.

  • Billy Hayes  

    But what's that?

  • Max  

    Well it's not a train. It's a prison word for... escape. But it doesn't stop around here.

  • Jimmy  

    The second way out, I need you guy's help, and that's under.

  • Billy Hayes  

    You mean tunnel? Are you serious?

  • Max  

    This is Shagmahr prison, not Stalag 17.

  • Jimmy  

    Well that's where you're wrong fuckface, 'cause it's already built!
