*** But Andy started digging his tunnel before the warden established a working relationship with him, and therefore before he could count on lasting protection. Guards come and go from the prison, only the warden is likely to have a tenure there long enough to be relied on for such a long-term project.

** But where, other than in {{Literature/Desperation}} NV is it normal for a man to grow several inches taller, and need his suit altered accordingly?

** As for John 8:12, the bible verse the warden quotes back, a commentary has this to say about it: "Strong and full of hope as these words are in the English rendering, the Greek is more emphatic still. The negative is in its strongest form, expressing “shall by no means,” “shall in no wise,” “walk in darkness.” The possibility is excluded from the thought. “God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all.” If a man makes a false step in life, it is because he seeks other guides in his own thoughts or in subjection to the thoughts of other men." So the warden is not merely acknowledging Andy's submission by putting himself in the role of God, but rejects even the possibility of Andy having thoughts outside of complete submission to him.

** Why wasn't there a grate on the far end of the sewage pipe? Even if you're not concerned about human access, you're probably concerned about animals ...

** [[FixFic Try this]] - Andy used some of his small mountain of untraceable cash (the sum total of which may not be entirely necessary to live in Zihautenejo) to support them remotely.

* That pipe was dumping raw sewage straight into a stream - totally gross!

** The new fish who was slaughtered by Hadley. "What was his name?" "What do you care?" Look at the credits. Obviously, He's also not named; credited only as "Fat Ass".

* After Andy's cell has been tossed, Norton returns his bible to him, saying "Salvation lies within". [[spoiler:It's not revealed until much later on in the movie that Andy's salvation ''literally'' lay within the bible, as that was where he was keeping his rock pick hidden.]]

Salvation lay within."]]

** It would hardly be the first time a family lost its husband/father. What's happened to those left behind pretty much runs the gamut of all human experience. Some fall, some triumph.

* Tommy has a wife and infant daughter. Red surmises that "maybe it was the thought of them on the streets or his child growing up not knowing her daddy" that goads him to ask Andy for help with his GED. At least the novella version lets you hope he eventually left prison for good. As for the movie version ... What do you think happened to his loved ones after his death?
