American Rhetoric: Movie Speech
"Cool Hand Luke" (1967)
'Captain' Identifies The Problem Behind Luke's Escape
Captain: You gonna get used to wearin' them chains after awhile, Luke. Don't you never stop listenin' to them clinking, cause they gonna remind you of what I've been saying -- for your own good.
Luke: I wish you'd stop being so good to me, Cap'm.
Captain: Don't you ever talk that way to me. Never! Never!
Captain: What we've got here is failure to communicate.
Some men, you just can't reach.
So you get what we had here last week -- which is the way he wants it.
Well, he gets it.
And I don't like it anymore than you men.
