You're talkin' about a matter of seconds

Juror #3:
[to Juror #8 about the El-Train drowning out the supposed death threat]
You're talkin' about a matter of *seconds!* Nobody can be *that* accurate!
Juror #8:

Even if he heard something, he still
couldn't have identified the voice.
With the el roaring by?
You're talking about a matter of seconds!
Nobody can be that accurate.
I think testimony that could put a boy into

Why should he lie?
What's he got to gain?
Attention maybe.
You keep coming in
with these bright sayings!
Why don't you send 'em in to a paper?
They pay three dollars apiece.
What are you talking to him
like that for?
Guy talks like that to an old man
really ought to get stepped on, you know?
You ought to have more respect, mister.
