Spotlight (I) (2015)
Michael Keaton: Walter 'Robby' Robinson
Walter 'Robby' Robinson : We've got two stories here: a story about degenerate clergy, and a story about a bunch of lawyers turning child abuse into a cottage industry. Which story do you want us to write? Because we're writing one of them.
Mike Rezendes : We got Law. This is it.
Walter 'Robby' Robinson : No, this is Law covering for one priest, there's another ninety out there.
Mike Rezendes : Yeah, and we'll print that story when we get it, but we got to go with this now.
Walter 'Robby' Robinson : No, I'm not going to rush this story, Mike.
Mike Rezendes : We don't have a choice, Robby. If we don't rush to print, somebody else is going to find these letters and butcher this story. Joe Quimby from the Herald was at the freaking courthouse!
Walter 'Robby' Robinson : Mike.
Mike Rezendes : What? Why are we hesitating? Baron told us to get Law. This is Law.
Walter 'Robby' Robinson : Baron told us to get the system. We need the full scope. That's the only thing that will put an end to this.
Mike Rezendes : Then let's take it up to Ben and let him decide.
Walter 'Robby' Robinson : We'll take it to Ben when I say it's time.
Mike Rezendes : It's time, Robby! It's time! They knew and they let it happen! To KIDS! Okay? It could have been you, it could have been me, it could have been any of us. We gotta nail these scumbags! We gotta show people that nobody can get away with this; Not a priest, or a cardinal or a freaking pope!
Walter 'Robby' Robinson : [answering the phone] Spotlight.
Walter 'Robby' Robinson : You know thirteen priests in Boston who have molested children?
Phil Saviano : Yeah! Why do you keep repeating everything I say?
Walter 'Robby' Robinson : [quieter than before] I just like to clarify things.
Phil Saviano : Maybe you should have clarified it five years ago when I sent you all of this stuff! It's all... right here!
[silence, Phil composes himself]
Phil Saviano : May I use your bathroom?
Matt Carroll : Yeah, sure, Phil.
Walter 'Robby' Robinson : [from trailer] I wanna keep digging.
Walter 'Robby' Robinson : [from trailer] Guys, listen. Everybody's gonna be interested in this.
