* BreakThemByTalking: Played straight initially when Juror #8 baits #3 into lashing out in a rage (thus proving his point about IneffectualDeathThreats), but inverted twice at the end: once when #10 goes on a bigoted diatribe and is ignored by everyone, and once when #3 goes on a similar rant, only to find that the room has gone dead silent over the pitiable wreck he has made of himself, leading to his HeelRealization.

'''''12 Angry Men''''' is a 1954 teleplay by Reginald Rose (and perhaps more famously, a 1957 film directed by Creator/SidneyLumet and starring Creator/HenryFonda and a veritable AllStarCast of character actors) that concerns a supposedly straightforward murder trial. An eyewitness, forensic evidence, and the accused himself all seem to clearly point to an adolescent boy having murdered his father. In the deliberation room, most of the jurors push for a quick guilty verdict, but one juror holds out and insists that they examine the evidence thoroughly to make damn sure that the accused deserves his punishment: a mandatory death sentence.

** Juror #3 may be vicious and want to see the defendant executed, but even he is unwilling to listen to #10's bigoted tirades.
*** It's a "blink and you'll miss it" moment but: people start to stand and/or turn away from #10 as the camera begins to zoom out and pan away from him. The first person we see move is #5, but as the camera continues to zoom and pan, we see that by the time #5 has approached the windows, #3 is already there. Judging from where everyone moved to, #3 had to be the first one to get up.
*** Actually, he WAS the first one to get up. He got up right before #10's tirade. Still, he didn't sit back down.

In 1997, it was adapted yet again, this time as a MadeForTV movie on {{Showtime}}, starring Jack Lemmon and Creator/GeorgeCScott. This adaptation {{race lift}}ed several jurors, [[GenderFlip gender flipped]] the judge, and [[ClusterFBomb added more cussing]]. There is also a 2007 Russian Adaptation by Creator/NikitaMikhalkov called simply ''12''.

#8. #9 is the first person to side with #8, and helps him out when he's arguing with the others.

As does #4 to #3.#3. #4 provides logical reasoning for all of #3's passionate arguments, and is one of the last people to change his mind.
