Quotes from
The Shawshank Redemption

The original quote, with slang   What does it mean?

(The prisoners are betting on which new inmate will be the first to cry)
Red: That tall drink of water with the silver spoon up his ass.

(The prisoners are betting on which new inmate will be the first to cry)
Red: I'll bet on the tall man who looks like he was born to a rich family.

New Prisoner (crying): I'm not supposed to be here! I want to go home! I want my ma!
Old Prisoner: Yeah, I had your momma. She wasn't that great!

New Prisoner (crying): I'm not supposed to be here! I want to go home! I want my mother!
Old Prisoner: Yes, I had sex with your mother. She wasn't very good!

Red: There's not a day goes by I don't feel regret. Not because I'm in here, or because you think I should. I look back on the way I was then, a young, stupid kid who committed that terrible crime. I want to talk to him. I want to try and talk some sense to him, tell him the way things are. But I can't. That kid's long gone and this old man is all that's left. I got to live with that. Rehabilitated? It's just a bullshit word. So you go on and stamp your form, sonny, and stop wasting my time. Because to tell you the truth, I don't give a shit.

Red: I feel regret every day. Not because I'm in prison, or because you think I should. I think about on the way I was then, a stupid young man who committed that terrible crime. I want to talk to him. I want to try and talk explain reality to him, to tell him the way things are. But I can't. That young man has been gone for a long time and this old man is all that's left. I've got to live with that. Am I rehabilitated? It's just a nonsense word. So you go on and mark my application for parole "rejected," young man* and stop wasting my time. Because to be honest, I don't care at all.

*"Sonny" is a disrespectful term for him to use with an adult

Andy: I'm a rock hound. At least I was in my old life. I would like to be again on a limited basis.
Red: Or maybe you'd like to sink your toy into someone skull.
Andy: No, I have no enemies here.
Red: Really? Wait a while. Word gets around. I've heard the Sisters have taken quite a liking to you—especially Bogs.
Andy: Does it help to tell them that I'm not homosexual?
Red: Neither are they. You have to be human first. They don't qualify. Bull queers take by force. It's all they want or understand. If I were you, I'd grow eyes in the back of my head.
Andy: Thanks for the advice.

Andy: I love rocks and minerals. At least I did before I was a prisoner. I would like to have that as my hobby again in a small way.
Red: Or maybe you'd like to use your new rock hammer to break someone's skull
Andy: No, I have no enemies here.
Red: Really? Wait a while. There is a lot of talk about that. I've heard the men here called the "Sisters" like you a lot—especially Bogs.
Andy: Does it help to tell them that I'm not homosexual?
Red: Neither are they. You have to be human first and they are not human. Bull queers are gay men who rape their victims. It's all they want or understand. If I were you, I would be careful and pay attention to who is behind me.
Andy: Thanks for the advice.
