Matthew McConaughey and Jack Black in court in the film Bernie.
Matthew McConaughey as Danny Buck Davidson: You know all about the high class life, don't you Bernie?
Jack Black as Bernie Tiede: I, uh, like what?
Like, I don't know. Say for instance: what kind of wine are you supposed to have with fish?
No, I don't know. White? Usually.
Hmm. Now it takes a lot of money, to have that much culture, don't it? To enjoy the finer things in life that you love so much. The richy hotels. The first class flying off to the big cities. I mean, it takes a lot of money to live that way, don't it?
No, I left to my own devices. I would not have been traveling in...
But if left to someone else' devices you weren't! And after you killed Mrs. Nugent, you kept on with spending her money, didn't you? A lot of it. And if you wouldn't have been caught, you'd still be spending her money today, wouldn't you? Wouldn't you?
