"You’re gonna look real funny sucking my dick with no teeth."

The Shawshank Redemption - Captain Hadley welcomes Andy Defresne to Shawshank Prison.

Description: Captain Hadley (Clancy Brown) talks to newcomer Andrew Dufresne (Tim Robbins) in the motion picture The Shawshank Redemption (1994).

Captain Byron T. Hadley is the guard at Shawshank State Prison in Maine. He rules through fear, intimidation and bodily harm to anyone who opposes him. The sadistic Hadley serves Warden Samuel Norton (Bob Gunton), an equally grim fellow who greets new inmates, saying, “Put your trust in the Lord....your ass belongs to me. Welcome to Shawshank.”

Through out his reign of terror at the prison, Hadley has no problems communicating his disdain to his charges. When a prisoner shouts vulgarities at the new inmates, Hadley growls, “What the Christ is this happy horseshit?" One prisoner yells, “Hey, he took the Lord's name in vain! I'm tellin' the warden!” Hadley replies, “You'll be tellin' the warden about my baton up your ass!”

When a new inmate asks, "When do we eat?" Hadley replies, "You eat when we say you eat. You piss when we say you piss, and you shit when we say you shit. You got that, you maggot dick motherfucker?"

Telling a bunch of inmates to be quiet, Hadley yells, "If I hear so much as a mouse fart in here the rest of the night I swear by God and sonny Jesus you will all visit the infirmary. Every last motherfucker in here."

On another ocassion, he warns, "I'm not gonna to count to three. I'm not even gonna count to one. You will shut the FUCK up or I'll sing you a lullaby!"

"What is your malfunction, you fat barrel of monkey spunk?"

Of all the prisoners to come to Shawshank, the hard-boiled Hadley warms up to Andy Dufresne, a seemingly snobby banker who was falsely imprisoned for the death of his wife and her lover in 1947.

The Shawshank Redemption - Tim Robbins as Andy DuFresne

While working a roof tarring detail, Andy overhears Hadley who is having tax problems. Andy, an expert in finance, offers a workable solution, and from that day on Andy's life gets easier. Eventually, Andy is doing the Warden's books which gives Andy insights to the warden's corrupt activities.

Hadley even came to the rescue of Andy's abuse by a group of inmates called "The Sisterhood" who had routinely raped Andy since his arrival.

“Now, I'm gonna open my fly and you're gonna swallow what I give ya."

When the group's leader, Boggs (Mark Rolston) viciously beats Andy, Hadley retaliates and savagely beat Boggs, cripples him and then transfers him to another facility where from what the prisoners hear, he drinks all his meals through a straw.

Time passes, and then one day in 1965, Andy learns from an inmate named Tommy (Gil Bellows) that he overheard a cellmate at another prison boast he was the one responsible for the death of Andy's wife and her lover.

But when Andy presents his new evidence to appeal his case, Warden Norton refuses to help and orders Hadley to kill Tommy because Andy is too valuable and because Andy knows too much about the prison's illegal activities.

The Shawshank Redemption - Andy Dufresne escapes prison

Consequently, Andy escapes Shawshank Prison and sends incriminating information to the local newspaper that gets Haley arrested for murder and taken away ("crying like a little girl.") When the authorities come for the warden, he commits suicide with a gun.

Andy then sends a blank postcard to his long-time prison pal, Ellis "Red" Redding (Morgan Freeman) postmarked Fort Hancock, Texas. Red then violates parole, takes a bus to Fort Hancock, where he crosses into Mexico and reunites with Andy to live as a free man on the beaches of Zihuatanejo on the Pacific coast.

Red is the one responsible for procuring the rock hammer that Andy uses to tunnel out of the prison, even though it takes years to do. When he first saw Andy, Red calls him, "That tall drink of water with the silver spoon up his ass."

"In 1966, Andy Dufresne escaped from Shawshank prison. All they found of him was a muddy set of prison clothes, a bar of soap, and an old rock hammer, damn near worn down to the nub. I remember thinking it would take a man six hundred years to tunnel through the wall with it. Old Andy did it in less than twenty. Oh, Andy loved geology. I imagine it appealed to his meticulous nature. An ice age here, million years of mountain building there. Geology is the study of pressure and time. That's all it takes really, pressure, and time. That, and a big goddamn poster. Like I said, in prison a man will do most anything to keep his mind occupied. Turns out Andy's favorite hobby was totin' his wall out into the exercise yard, a handful at a time. I guess after Tommy was killed, Andy decided he'd been here just about long enough. Andy did like he was told, buffed those shoes to a high mirror shine. The guards simply didn't notice. Neither did I... I mean, seriously, how often do you really look at a mans shoes? Andy crawled to freedom through five hundred yards of shit smelling foulness I can't even imagine, or maybe I just don't want to. Five hundred yards... that's the length of five football fields, just shy of half a mile." -- Ellis "Red" Redding

Note: When Boggs tells Andy to suck his dick, or he will "put all eight inches of steel" in his ear, Andy calmly replies, “All right. But you should know that sudden serious brain injury causes the victim to bite down hard. In fact, I hear the bite reflex is so strong they have to pry the victims jaws open with a crow bar.” Concerned, Boggs asks, “Where do you get this shit?” Andy responds, “I read it. You know how to read, you ignorant fuck?”

In the cult comedy film The Blues Brothers (1980), Charles Napier as Tucker McElroy says “You’re gonna look pretty funny trying to eat corn on the cob with no fuckin’ teeth” to ex-con Joliet Jake (John Belushi).
