Carson Wells: Buenos dias. I'm guessing this isn't the future you had pictured for yourself when you first clapped eyes on that money. Don't worry, I'm not the man who's after you.
Llewelyn Moss: I know that. I've seen him.
Carson Wells: You've seen him? And you're not dead? Huh.

You can't stop what's coming.


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.

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.

Employer: Did I say you could sit?
Carson Wells: No, but you strike me as a man who wouldn't want to waste his chair.

Aw, hells bells. They even shot the dog


Okay. Two of 'em. Both had my father. It's peculiar. I'm older now then he ever was by twenty years. So in a sense he's the younger man. Anyway, first one I don't remember so well but it was about money and I think I lost it. The second one, it was like we was both back in older times and I was on horseback goin' through the mountains of a night. Goin' through this pass in the mountains. It was cold and snowin', hard ridin'. Hard country. He rode past me and kept on goin'. Never said nothin' goin' by. He just rode on past and he had his blanket wrapped around him and his head down and when he rode past I seen he was carryin' fire in a horn the way people used to do and I could see the horn from the light inside of it. About the color of the moon. And in the dream I knew that he was goin' on ahead and that he was fixin' to make a fire somewhere out there in all that dark and all that cold, and I knew that whenever I got there he would be there. Out there up ahead. And then I woke up.

Ed Tom Bell

Wendell: You think this boy Moss has got any notion of the sorts of sons of bitches that're huntin' him?
Ed Tom Bell: I don't know, he ought to. He's seen the same things I've seen, and it's certainly made an impression on me.

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.

Wendell: That's very linear Sherrif.
Ed Tom Bell: Well, age will flatten a man.

Ed Tom Bell: Now that's aggrevatin'.
Wendell: Sheriff?
Ed Tom Bell: [points to a bottle of milk] Still sweatin'.
Wendell: Whoa, Sheriff! We just missed him! We gotta circulate this!
Ed Tom Bell: Well, okay. What do we circulate? Lookin' for a man who recently drunk milk?

Loretta Bell: Be careful.
Ed Tom Bell: I always am.
Loretta Bell: Don't get hurt.
Ed Tom Bell: I never do.
Loretta Bell: Don't hurt no one.
Ed Tom Bell: [smiles] Well. If you say so.
