Shawshank Redemption Quote: “I believe in two things: discipline and the Bible. Here you’ll receive both. Put your trust in the Lord; your ass belongs to me. Welcome to Shawshank.” – Warden Norton

Reminisce about the beauty and transcendence of Stephen King’s tale, then jump right into our debate over whether Andy Dufresne really was guilty, Tommy was telling the truth and Hadley was a bad man.
