Mr. Dufresne, describe the confrontation you had with your wife the night that she was murdered.
Andy Dufresne: It was very bitter. She said she was glad I knew, that she hated all the sneaking around. And she said that she wanted a divorce in Reno.
When Red violates his parole at the end of the film he says "for the second time in my life, I've committed a crime." However, Red committed numerous crimes while incarcerated due to his smuggling of contraband into the prison.
The man who cried and was beaten when Andy first arrived is listed and credited as "Fat Ass" -- the other inmates' nickname for him.
