[#7 turns away, and the Foreman gets up and walks away]
#10: [Increasingly desperate] Listen to me...They're no good! There's not a one of 'em who's any good! I mean, what's happening in here? I'm speaking my piece, and you...
[#12 gets up and walks to the window]
#10: Listen to me...We're, we're...This kid on trial here, his type...Well, don't you know about them? There's a...There's a danger here. These people are dangerous. They're...wild. Listen to me...Listen.
