In this monologue SAUL talks to a friend about witnessing a fight that resulted in death.
SAUL: That was a hit. That was a really hard hit. I didn’t think he would hit him so hard, that hard…to actually kill him. All those years of getting picked on, beat up and chased. I never stopped it. I never said a word to stop it.
And now look what’s happened. All those years of pent up rage, finally came out and exploded. I saw it all go down. I never saw such a punch in all my life. They said the way in which the impact happened, caused a bone fragment to enter his brain…the rest…the rest was all over after that.
I really don’t think he wanted to actually kill him. I’m sure he wanted to hurt him and maybe he had murderous feelings but I don’t believe he actually wanted to kill him. I can’t believe that. I won’t believe that. Not Jeremy.
