Fargo (TV Series)
The Crocodile's Dilemma (2014)
Billy Bob Thornton: Lorne Malvo
Lorne Malvo : I'm gonna roll my window up, then I'm going to drive away and you're gonna go home to your daughter. And every few years you're gonna look at her face and know that you're alive because you chose not to go down on a certain road on a certain night. That you chose to walk into the light instead of into the darkness.
Lorne Malvo : Evening, officer.
Gus Grimly : Evening. License and registration, please.
Lorne Malvo : We could do it that way. You ask me for my papers. I tell you it's not my car, that I borrowed it. See where thing go from there. We could do that. Or you could go get in your car and drive away.
Gus Grimly : [chuckles] Now, why would I do that?
Lorne Malvo : Because some roads you shouldn't go down. Because maps used to say, "There be dragons here." Now they don't. But that don't mean the dragons aren't there.
Lorne Malvo : Your problem is you've spent your whole life thinking there are rules. There aren't. We used to be gorillas.
Lorne Malvo : Truth is, you're more of a man today than you were yesterday.
Lester Nygaard : How do you figure?
Lorne Malvo : It's a red tide, Lester. This life of ours. The shit they make us eat. Day after day - The boss, the wife, et cetera - wearing us down. If you don't stand up to it, let 'em know you're still an ape. Deep down where it counts. You're just gonna get washed away.
Lorne Malvo : Just one word. Yes or no.
Lorne Malvo : Lester, have you been a bad boy?
Lorne Malvo : 1. Just one word, yes or no.
Lorne Malvo : No, mister, we're not friends. I mean, maybe we will be someday. But I gotta say, if it were me in your position... I would have killed that man.
Lester Nygaard : Well, now... Come on.
[Malvo stares intently into Lester's eyes]
Lorne Malvo : You've grown up believing there are rules. There aren't...
Lorne Malvo : A guy insulted me once. I pissed in his gas tank. Car never drove straight again.
Lorne Malvo : In my experience, if you let a man break your nose, the next time he tries to break your spine.
Lorne Malvo : 'Course, no one hangs the sad pictures, am I right? Mom crying and dad looking angry. The kid with the black eye...
