If the rule you followed brought you to this, what good is the rule?

Carla Jean Moss: You don't have to do this.
Anton Chigurh: [smiles] Everybody says that.

Boy on Bike: Mister? You got a bone stickin' out your arm.
Anton Chigurh: Let me just sit here a minute.

Manager: That's a dead dog.
Anton Chigurh: Yes it is.

Anton Chigurh: I'm looking for Llewelyn Moss.
Manager: Did you go up to his trailer?
Anton Chigurh: Yes, I did.
Manager: Well, I'd say he's at work. Do you want to leave a message?
Anton Chigurh: Where does he work?
Manager: I can't say.
Anton Chigurh: Where does he work?
Manager: Sir, I ain't at liberty to give out no information about our residents.
Anton Chigurh: Where does he work?
Manager: Did you not hear me? We can't give out no information.

Anton Chigurh: You know how this is going to turn out, don't you?
Llewelyn Moss: Nope.
Anton Chigurh: I think you do. So this is what I'll offer - you bring me the money and I'll let her go. Otherwise she's accountable, same as you. That's the best deal you're gonna get. I won't tell you you can save yourself, because you can't.
Llewelyn Moss: Yeah, I'm going to bring you something, alright. In fact, I'm making you a special project of mine. You won't have to come looking for me at all.

Man at Gas Station: Is there something wrong?
Anton Chigurh: With what?
Man at Gas Station: With anything?
Anton Chigurh: Is that what you're asking me? Is there something wrong with anything?

Anton Chigurh: Don't put it in your pocket, sir. Don't put it in your pocket. It's your lucky quarter.
Gas Station Guy: Where do you want me to put it?
Anton Chigurh: Anywhere not in your pocket. Where it'll get mixed in with the others and become just a coin. Which it is.

Gas Station Guy: I didn't put nothin' up.
Anton Chigurh: Yes, you did. You've been putting it up your whole life you just didn't know it. You know what date is on this coin?
Gas Station Guy: No.
Anton Chigurh: 1958. It's been traveling 22 years to get here. And now it's here. And it's either heads or tails. And you have to say. Call it.
Gas Station Guy: Look, I need to know what I stand to win.
Anton Chigurh: Everything.
Gas Station Guy: How's that?
Anton Chigurh: You stand to win everything. Call it.

Anton Chigurh: What's the most you ever lost on a coin toss.
Gas Station Guy: Sir?
Anton Chigurh: The most. You ever lost. On a coin toss.
Gas Station Guy: I don't know. I couldn't say.
