Arnold Schwarzenegger- No Country For Old Men- Coin Toss


Voiced by Joe Gaudet:

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

Proprietor: Sir?

Chigurh: The most. You ever lost. On a coin toss.

Proprietor: I don’t know. I couldn’t say.[Chigurh tosses a quarter in the air, catches it, then places it on the counter with his hand over it]

Chigurh: Call it.

Proprietor: Call it?

Chigurh[sighs] Yes.

Proprietor: For what?

Chigurh: Just call it.

Proprietor: Well, we need to know what we’re callin’ for here.

Chigurh: You need to call it. I can’t call it for you. It wouldn’t be fair.

Proprietor: I didn’t put nothin’ up.

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?

Proprietor: No.

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.

Proprietor: Well, look…I need 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 removes his hand, revealing the proprietor made the correct call]

Chigurh[suddenly] Well done! [flicks the quarter to the proprietor] Don’t put it in your pocket.

Proprietor: Sir….?

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

Proprietor: Well, where do you want me to put it?

Chigurh: Anywhere, not in your pocket. Where it’ll get mixed in with the others and become just a coin…which it is.
