Assistant District Attorney Martin Harrison:
You mean he was dead when you got home?
She's got him covered in a sheet and she's telling me this cock-and-bull story about this burglar, and how I ought to say it was me 'cause I was sure to get off. "Help me, Amos," she says, "it's my goddamn hour of need."
[talking over Roxie's singing]
That cheap little tramp. So she's been two-timing me, huh? Well, I'm through protecting her; she can swing for all I care! Boy, I'm down at the garage working my butt off fourteen hours a day and she's out there munching on bonbons and tramping around like some goddamn floozy! Thought she could pull the wool over my eyes? Well, I wasn't born yesterday. I tell ya, there are some things a man just can't take, and this time she pushed me too far. That little chiseler! Boy, what a sap I was!
You told me he was a burglar. He was dead when you got home? She had him covered in a sheet, and she's telling me some cock-and-bull story and how I ought to say I did it 'cause I was sure to get off. "Help me, Amos," she says. "It's my goddamn hour of need." Now he shot off his trap I can't stand that sap - Look at him go - And I believed her. - Rattin' on me - That cheap little tramp. She was two-timing me, huh? I'm through protecting her now. She can swing for all I care. I'm down at the garage working 14 hours a day, and she's up here munching on bonbons and tramping around like some goddamn floozy! Thought she could pull the wool over my eyes. - That scummy, crummy - Well, I wasn't born yesterday. - Dummy - Some things a man can't take. - Hubby of mine - She pushed me too far. That little chiseler. Boy, what a sap I was! You double-crosser! You big blabbermouth! You promised you'd stick. You been stringin' me, Roxanne! You told me he was a burglar! The whole time, you been up here jazzin' him. You are a disloyal husband! Look, it's true. I shot him. But it was self-defense. He was trying to burgle me. From what I hear, he's been burgling you three times a week for the last month. So what do you say, Missus? That's him, all right. Thank you. Your story doesn't wash, Mrs. Hart... so try this on for size. Fred Casely was a good time on the side with Goofy here as a meal ticket. Meal ticket? He couldn't buy my liquor. Fred Casely could? With a wife and five little Caselys? Or did he forget to mention them? What? All his. Oh, that bastard. That bastard! Yeah, I killed him. I would kill him again. Once was enough, dearie. Take her downtown. Come on! This is it. 2641/2. Here they come. This way, honey. It's a shame to hide such a beautiful face. Why'd you shoot him? Give us a profile with a smile like the girl from the toothpaste ad. Enjoy it while you can. Take this down. Assistant District Attorney Harrison says this is a hanging case. I'm ready to go to the jury tomorrow. What do you mean, hanging? Not so tough anymore, are you? Take her down to the Cook County Jail. We need a headline. Why'd you shoot him? Was he cruel? Did he beat you?
