Movie Quote of the Day – Brokedown Palace, 1999 (dir. Jonathan Kaplan)

Alice: My best friend is not a drug smuggler. She is innocent. She’s innocent. All she ever did wrong was to trust me. Here you believe one friend knows what the other does. Maybe that’s friendship but I’m American, and I was not that kind of a friend. I know this. Because I did it. Because I was foolish and jealous. I was afraid she’d drift away. I was afraid I was gonna lose her. She never knew. It was all me. She spent all this time in your prison for my mistakes. I’m sorry. Please, if you need someone to do the time, I’ll do it. I’ll do her time and mine. Just let her go, please.
Emissary to Crown: Then you’re of strong character and would lie to save your friend?
Alice: No, I am of weak character. And I just want to make up for my mistakes.
Emissary to Crown: If you’re lying to save your friend, then you’re of sufficient character to earn what you want. If you’re telling the truth, then your friend is innocent and should go free. If you are willing to serve her term and yours, your friend is pardoned.
