I love a good Quote and I think The Coen Brothers have some of the greatest quotes in movies. If you are a fan please give me your favourites
From The Big Labowski:
The Dude: No they’re not Nazis, man, they’re nihlists
Walter: Nihilists! Fuck me. I mean, say what you like about the tenets of National Socialism, Dude, at least it’s an ethos.
From Millers Crossing:
Eddie Dane: Where’s Leo?
Leo’s thug: If I tell you, how do I know you won’t kill me?
Eddie Dane: Because if you told me and I killed you and you were lying I wouldn’t get to kill you then. Where’s Leo?
Leo’s thug: He’s moving around. He’s getting his mob together tomorrow night. Whisky Nick’s.
Eddie Dane: You sure?
Leo’s thug: Check it. It’s gold.
Eddie Dane: You know what, yegg? I believe you.
From Raising Arizona:
FBI Man: Was the boy wearing any jammies?
Nathan Arizona Sr.: Of course he was wearing his jammies nobody sleeps naked in this house.
FBI Man: Well could you describe the jammies?
Nathan Arizona Sr.: I don’t what is damn jammies looked like…they had Yodas and shit on them
Three of my all time favorite Coen bros quotes are from Oh Brother Where Art Thou:
Friend, some of your foldin’ money’s come unstoled.
…And stay out the Woolsworth!
…Hell, they ain’t even old-timey!
From Blood Simple
Visser: I hope your wife really loves you, because for the next five weeks, you can’t even wipe your own god damn ass. That’s the test, ain’t it? Test of true love.
