Let It Ride (1989)

Greenberg: "She has very long legs."
Vicki: Thanks. "They go from my ass all the way to the floor."

Marty: "Eight's the one, I'd stake my life on it."
Jay Trotter: "They've got a $2 minimum bet."

Tony Cheesburger: "The 4 horse! Nobody bets the 4 horse, Trotter. The 4 horse is a joke. They let little kiddies on the 4 horse to have their picture taken."

[Watching toteboard go from 40-1 to 8-1]
Looney: "Probably some coke dealer went nuts again."

Looney: "Fifty bucks on Junebug to win! It's the same name as my cat."

One of my favourite movies.

You could be walking around lucky and not even know it.


I don't think I want to know a six-year-old who isn't a dreamer, or a sillyheart. And I sure don't want to know one who takes their student career seriously. I don't have a college degree. I don't even have a job. But I know a good kid when I see one. Because they're ALL good kids, until dried-out, brain-dead skags like you drag them down and convince them they're no good. You so much as scowl at my niece, or any other kid in this school, and I hear about it, and I'm coming looking for you! Take this quarter, go downtown, and have a rat gnaw that thing off your face! Good day to you, madam.

Jim Rockford

A Day At The Races (1937)

Dr. Hackenbush: [examining Stuffy with an auriscope]"I haven't seen anything like this in years. The last time I saw a head like that was in a bottle of formaldehyde."
Tony: "Told you he was sick."
Dr. Hackenbush: [pointing to Stuffy's neck] "That's all pure desecration along there. He's got about a 15% metabolism, with an overactive thyroid and a glandular affectation of about 3%."
Tony: "That's bad."
Dr. Hackenbush: "With a 1% mentality."
[Stuffy grins]
Dr. Hackenbush: "He's what we designate as the crummy moronic type. All in all, this is the most gruesome looking piece of blubber I've ever peered at."
Tony: "Hey doc. Hey doc!"
Dr. Hackenbush: "Huh?"
Tony: "You gotta the looking glass turned around, you're looking at yourself."



At an isolated dusty crossroad. It is twilight. The Ford sedan that Chigurh stopped is parked alongside the pump.


Chigurh stands at the counter across from the elderly proprietor. He holds up a bag of cashews.

CHIGURH How much?

PROPRIETOR Sixty-nine cent.

CHIGURH This. And the gas.

PROPRIETOR Y’all getting any rain up your way?

CHIGURH What way would that be?

PROPRIETOR I seen you was from Dallas.

Chigurh tears open the bag of cashews and pours a few into his hand.

CHIGURH What business is it of yours where I’m from, friendo?

PROPRIETOR I didn’t mean nothin by it.

CHIGURH Didn’t mean nothin.

PROPRIETOR I was just passin the time.

CHIGURH I guess that passes for manners in your cracker view of things.

A beat.

PROPRIETOR Well sir I apologize. If you don’t wanna accept that I don’t know what else I can do for you.

Chigurh stands chewing cashews, staring while the old man works the register.

PROPRIETOR …Will there be somethin else?

CHIGURH I don’t know. Will there?


The proprietor turns and coughs. Chigurh stares.

PROPRIETOR Is somethin wrong?

CHIGURH With what?

PROPRIETOR With anything?

CHIGURH Is that what you’re asking me? Is there something wrong with anything?

The proprietor looks at him, uncomfortable, looks away.

PROPRIETOR Will there be anything else?

CHIGURH You already asked me that.

PROPRIETOR Well…I need to see about closin.

CHIGURH See about closing.


CHIGURH What time do you close?

PROPRIETOR Now. We close now.

CHIGURH Now is not a time. What time do you close.

PROPRIETOR Generally around dark. At dark.

Chigurh stares, slowly chewing.

CHIGURH You don’t know what you’re talking about, do you?


CHIGURH I said you don’t know what you’re talking about.

Chigurh chews

… What time do you go to bed.


CHIGURH You’re a bit deaf, aren’t you? I said what time do you go to bed.


A pause.

…I’d say around nine-thirty. Somewhere around nine- thirty.

CHIGURH I could come back then.

PROPRIETOR Why would you be comin back? We’ll be closed.

CHIGURH You said that.

He continues to stare, chewing.

PROPRIETOR Well…I need to close now–

CHIGURH You live in that house behind the store?


CHIGURH You’ve lived here all your life?

A beat.

PROPRIETOR This was my wife’s father’s place. Originally.

CHIGURH You married into it.

PROPRIETOR We lived in Temple Texas for many years. Raised a family there. In Temple. We come out here about four years ago.

CHIGURH You married into it.

PROPRIETOR …If that’s the way you wanna put it.

CHIGURH I don’t have some way to put it. That’s the way it is.

He finishes the cashews and wads the packet and sets it on the counter where it begins to slowly unkink. The proprietor’s eyes have tracked the packet. Chigurh’s eyes stay on the proprietor.

…What’s the most you’ve ever lost on a coin toss?


CHIGURH The most. You ever lost. On a coin toss.

PROPRIETOR I don’t know. I couldn’t say.

Chigurh is digging in his pocket. A quarter: he tosses it. He slaps it onto his forearm but keeps it covered.

CHIGURH Call it.




CHIGURH Just call it.

PROPRIETOR Well–we need to know what it is we’re callin for here.

CHIGURH You need to call it. I can’t call it for you. It wouldn’t be fair. It wouldn’t even be right.

PROPRIETOR I didn’t put nothin up.

CHIGURH Yes you did. You been putting it up your whole life. You just didn’t know it. You know what date is on this coin?


CHIGURH Nineteen fifty-eight. It’s been traveling twenty-two years to get here. And now it’s here. And it’s either heads or tails, and you have to say. Call it.

A long beat.

PROPRIETOR Look…I got to know what I stand to win.

CHIGURH Everything.

PROPRIETOR How’s that?

CHIGURH You stand to win everything. Call it.

PROPRIETOR All right. Heads then.

Chigurh takes his hand away from the coin and turns his arm to look at it.

CHIGURH Well done.

He hands it across.

…Don’t put it in your pocket.


CHIGURH Don’t put it in your pocket. It’s your lucky quarter.

PROPRIETOR …Where you want me to put it?

CHIGURH Anywhere not in your pocket. Or it’ll get mixed in with the others and become just a coin. Which it is.

He turns and goes.

The proprietor watches him

Captain Apollo

First Grade
Don Diego: Do you know how to use that thing?

Alejandro: Yes. The pointy end goes into the other man.


Captain Love: Strange I'd say, it's the second time I've shot this man while he was flying through the air.


Alejandro: Do you surrender?

Elena: Never, but I may scream.

Alejandro: I understand. Sometimes I have that effect.


Alejandro: Look at me. I look like a butterfly. This is the most stupid thing I've ever done.

Don Diego: I doubt that.

Alejandro: We'll never get away with this.

Don Diego: Yes we will. A nobleman is nothing but a man who says one thing and thinks another.


Soldier: Hey... I thought you were tied up.

Joaquín: That is because you are stupid.

Thurgood Jenkins: "So who is that, Jerry Garcia's brother?"
Brian: "No, actually it was Andy Garcia's brother."
