Abner, put the gun down.
Abner Easley: What the fuck are you doing? Get the fuck out of here.
While some have commented that Morgan Freeman's voice changes dramatically throughout the film, it is a major plot point that he is living a lie, living under an assumed identity and not particularly good at it. It is related to the theme of doing good, even though you may not be particularly good at it, nor be able to continue doing it for very long. It sounds unnatural for Morgan because it is unnatural for his character.
