Blood Simple (1984) Poster


Dan Hedaya: Julian Marty



  • Marty : I got a job for you.

    Private Detective Visser : Uh, well, if the pay's right, and it's legal, I'll do it.

    Marty : It's not strictly legal.

    Private Detective Visser : [Thinks for a second]  Well, if the pay's right, I'll do it.

  • [Visser has just given Marty some bad news] 

    Marty : You know... in Greece, they would cut off the head of the messenger that brought the bad news.

    Private Detective Visser : Now that don't make much sense.

    Marty : No. It made them feel better.

    Private Detective Visser : Well first off, Julian, I don't know what the story is in Greece but in this state we got very definite laws about that. Second place I ain't a messenger, I'm a private investigator. And third place - and most important - it ain't such bad news. I mean you thought he was a colored. You're always assumin' the worst.

  • Marty : [after Visser agrees to kill Abby and Ray for $10,000]  I'll take care of the money, you just make sure those bodies aren't found...

    [starts to turn away, then turns back] 

    Marty : ... there's a big incinerator in back of my place.

    Private Detective Visser : [after Marty walks away]  Jeeee-sus, you are disgustin'.

  • [Marty gives Visser his money] 

    Marty : Count it, and go.

    Private Detective Visser : Naw, I trust you.

    [Visser shoots Marty] 

  • Marty : [to Ray, out in back of the bar]  You a fuckin' marriage counselor? What are you smilin' at? I'm funny? Right? I'm an asshole? No, no, no, no, no, no. That's not what's funny. What's funny is *her*. What's funny is, that I had you two followed, because if it's not you she's sleeping with, it's someone else. And what's really gonna be funny, is when she gives you that innocent look and says, "I don't know what you're talkin' about, Ray, I ain't done anything funny" But the funniest thing to *me*, right now, is that you think that she came back here for *you*. That's what's fuckin' funny!

  • Meurice : Marty. Thought you were dead. You goin' home?

    Marty : No. I'm staying right here in hell.

    Meurice : Kind of a bleak point of view there, isn't it, Marty?

    Marty : Meurice... I don't want the asshole near my money. And I don't want him in the bar.

    Meurice : [pause]  We get a lotta assholes in here, Marty.

  • [grabbing Abby from behind after breaking into Ray's house] 

    Marty : Lover boy really oughta lock his door. Lotta nuts out there.

  • Marty : [looking at a doctored photo of Ray and Abby]  Dead?

    Private Detective Visser : So it would seem.

  • Marty : I'll give you 10,000 dollars.

    Private Detective Visser : Now I... do a murder. Two murders. Trust you not to go simple on me and do something stupid. I mean, really stupid. Now, why should I trust you?

    Marty : For the money.

    Private Detective Visser : For money. Yeah, that's a right smart of money. In Russia, they make only 50 cent a day.

  • Private Detective Visser : [about a photo of Ray and Abby]  I know a place you can get that framed.

    Marty : What did you take these for?

    Private Detective Visser : What do you mean? Just doin' my job.

    Marty : You called me, I knew they were there, so what do I need these for?

    Private Detective Visser : Well, I don't know... Call it a fringe benefit.

    Marty : How long did you watch her?

    Private Detective Visser : Most of the night... They'd just rest a few minutes and then get started again. Quite something.

  • Marty : Lover-boy oughta lock his door. I love you... That's a stupid thing to say, right?

    Abby : I... I love you too.

    Marty : [smiling]  No. You're just saying that because you're scared. You left your weapon behind... He'll kill you too.

  • Marty : What'd you do with the bodies?

    Private Detective Visser : It's taken care of. The less you know about it, the better.

  • Private Detective Visser : How did you cover the money?

    Marty : It's been taken care of. And the less you know about it, the better.

  • Marty : Let's do it outside, in nature.
