Quote –
Cuchillo: I’ve got a family.I’ve got three children! No money to feed them. My wife is a saint.She works from morning to night as a maid to a priest. And if I was in your place, I bet,I would say,”This man should be free to go.”

Colorado: If I was in your place,I’d say the same thing.But, I wouldn’t be foolish enough to expect another man to believe me.
