In the Heat of the Night:
Early in the film after Virgil is arrested by the bumbling, unethical, incompetent bozo redneck Sparta cops and is given the go ahead to leave, he takes his cash that they earlier had confiscated and begins counting it out. Chief Gillespie snarks, "It's all there!".
Virgil pauses, gives him an icy look (no one could give an icy look quite like Sidney Poitier), then resumes counting.
Good for him! I love that because
1. Virgil isn't an idiot (if in doubt, always count out your cash), and
2. He doesn't owe these racist morons anything, least of all blind trust. I mean, come on, if the roles were reversed, do you think for one second Gillespie would just take Virgil at his word?
