Joseph Cinque played by Djimon Hounsou in Spielberg's film Amistad has a dramatic outburst in the courtroom. He was defended in the real life drama by John Quincy Adams.
LAWYER: I do see that the cargo weight changed - a reduced poundage I see - that is odd.
CAPTAIN: It's simple, ghastly arithmetic.
LAWYER: Oh, for you perhaps, I may need a quill and parchment, and a better imagination.
CAPTAIN: And what poundage do you imagine the entry may refer to, sir? A mast and sails perhaps?
ENSLAVED AFRICAN: Giveth us free. Give us free. Giveth us free. Give us free.
LAWYER: Your honor, please instruct the defendant that he cannot disrupt these proceedings with such outbursts.
ENSLAVED AFRICAN: Givesth us free!
LAWYER: If we are to have any semblance of order in this court, your honor.
[Judge slams gavel]
ENSLAVED AFRICAN: Giveseth us free!
LAWYER: You cannot keep crying out 'give us free' or anything else while I am trying to question this witness.
ENSLAVED AFRICAN: Giveseth us free! Gives us free!
