    片段对白
     
    Nicholas Baker: There he is. Fred.
     
    Frederick Aiken: Hey.
     
    Nicholas Baker: Hamilton here has offered to be your second chair.
     
    Frederick Aiken: Oh. Re...
     
    Hamilton: Not a chance in hell.
     
    Nicholas Baker: No? You sure?
     
    Hamilton: Oh, yeah. I'll carry his briefcase, but I'm not...
     
    Frederick Aiken: Sarah.
     
    Sarah: Fred.
     
    Frederick Aiken: Why are you here?
     
    Sarah: I'm trying to understand why you're here. I suppose I should wish you luck.
     
    General Hunter: Come to order.
     
    Mary Surratt: How is Anna, Mr. Aiken?
     
    Frederick Aiken: She's fine... looking forward to when you come home.
     
    Mary Surratt: That's very nice of you to say, Mr. Aiken.
     
    General Hunter: Judge Advocate Holt, will you please proceed?
     
    Joseph Holt: In the matter of Mary Surratt, the prosecution calls as its first witness Mr. Louis Weichmann.
     
    Frederick Aiken: I thought he was like family. Why are they calling him?
     
    Joseph Holt: Place your right hand on this Bible.
     
    Mary Surratt: I don't know.
     
    Joseph Holt: Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help you, God?
     
    Louis Weichmann: I do.
     
    Joseph Holt: Please. Are you acquainted with the defendant, Mary Surratt?
     
    Louis Weichmann: Yes. Yes, I am. I attended Divinity College with her son John.
     
    Joseph Holt: And until recently, you resided at the boarding house owned by Mary Surratt. Is that correct?
     
    Louis Weichmann: That is correct, sir.
     
    Joseph Holt: Were any of these men ever present in her home?
     
    Louis Weichmann: Yes, sir. These three over there on several occasions.
     
    Joseph Holt: Let the record reflect that the witness has identified the prisoners Herold, Payne and Atzerodt. And who invited these men?
     
    Louis Weichmann: John Surratt.
     
    Frederick Aiken: Objection.
     
    Joseph Holt: Objection?
     
    Frederick Aiken: Uh, uh...There's no way to prove that John Surratt even knew these men, let alone invited them.
     
    Joseph Holt: Mr. Surratt's absence from this proceeding is Mr. Surratt's problem.
     
    General Hunter: Objection overruled. Continue, Mr. Holt.
     
    Joseph Holt: Was John Wilkes Booth also a frequent guest of John Surratt?
     
    Louis Weichmann: Indeed, but all the Surratts adored him...John, his sister Anna and their mother, too.
     
    Joseph Holt: And were there ever meetings held at the boarding house involving Mr. Booth?
     
    Louis Weichmann: Many, sometimes lasting two, three hours and always in secret, behind closed doors.
     
    Joseph Holt: And did you ever see Mary Surratt object to these, uh, meetings?
     
    Louis Weichmann: No, sir.
     
    Joseph Holt: Or to the presence of those men?
     
    Louis Weichmann: No, she did not.
     
    Joseph Holt: Thank you.
     
    Louis Weichmann: She appeared to welcome them.
     
    Joseph Holt: Thank you. That'll be all, Mr. Weichmann.
     
    Frederick Aiken: How long did you say these secret meetings lasted?
     
    Louis Weichmann: At least two, three hours.
     
    Frederick Aiken: You were timing them? Eh, if you were timing them, I suppose these secret meetings were not, in fact, kept secret from you.
     
    Louis Weichmann: I knew about them, sir, but I had no knowledge of what they were about.
     
    Frederick Aiken: And that is because you never attended any yourself, correct?
     
    Louis Weichmann: Exactly.
     
    Frederick Aiken: Why was that?
     
    Louis Weichmann: I thought them suspicious.
     
    Frederick Aiken: Suspicious? Well, then, you see, you did know what they were about.
     
    Louis Weichmann: No, sir, I did not.
     
    Frederick Aiken: Then why were your suspicions aroused?
     
    Louis Weichmann: By the snatches of rebel conversation I overheard in the hallways and by their frequent whisperings.
     
    Frederick Aiken: Well, in that case, if it was of such great concern to you, why did you not report your suspicions to your superiors at the War Department?
     
    Louis Weichmann: I did.
     
    Frederick Aiken: Excuse me?
     
    Louis Weichmann: I did reveal my suspicions. I made a confidant of Captain Gleason in the War Department.
     
    General Hunter: Mr. Aiken, if there's nothing else... Counselor, will that be all?
     
    Frederick Aiken: Uh, yes. Uh, no. No. No, I do have something else. Tell me, Mr. Weichmann. Tell us all. You ever been in Richmond?
     
    Joseph Holt: Objection.
     
    Frederick Aiken: I merely wish to know if the witness has ever visited the capital of the Confederacy.
     
    Louis Weichmann: I don't recall.
     
    Frederick Aiken: Then perhaps this train receipt will refresh your memory. It indicates passage to Richmond, and it has your initials on it.
     
    Louis Weichmann: Yes. That's right. I considered continuing my divinity studies there after the war. I plan on becoming a priest.
     
    Frederick Aiken: That's very nice. Do you recall, Mr. Weichmann, at which institute in Richmond you were thinking of enrolling?
     
    Louis Weichmann: The name?
     
    Frederick Aiken: Yes, Mr. Weichmann, the name.
     
    Louis Weichmann: Well, uh...
     
    Frederick Aiken: There is no academy of the kind...
     
    Joseph Holt: Objection.
     
    Frederick Aiken: ...In Richmond, is there, Mr. Weichmann? In fact, perhaps you visited Richmond...
     
    Joseph Holt: Objection, General.
     
    Frederick Aiken: ...For another purpose entirely.
     
    General Hunter: Objection sustained.
     
    Frederick Aiken: You worked for the general in charge of rebel prisoners, did you not?
     
    Louis Weichmann: Yes. So?
     
    Frederick Aiken: Perhaps a distinguished clerk like yourself knew certain information.
     
    Louis Weichmann: What sort of information?
     
    Frederick Aiken: Information that might have been of divine interest to certain rebels within the capital of the Confederacy.
     
    Joseph Holt: Objection, General. The witness is not on trial here.
     
    Lewis Payne: Well, he ought to be!
     
    General Hunter: Objection sustained. The witness is not on trial.
     
    Frederick Aiken: Sir, I am merely trying to establish the witness' credibility or rather the lack of credibility of this man.
     
    General Hunter: Mr. Aiken, you are incriminating the witness.
     
    Frederick Aiken: Incriminating? Sir, Louis Weichmann shared a room with John Surratt. I have a ticket that puts him in Richmond. I think it reasonable to assume that he knows more about this plot to assassinate our president than he supposedly reported.
     
    Joseph Holt: What Mr. Aiken thinks is entirely immaterial.
     
    General Hunter: Counselor, unless you have something more relevant to ask, the witness will step down.
     
    Frederick Aiken: No. No, I have nothing more...relevant to ask.
