Frances McDormand: Abby



  • [last lines] 

    Abby : [after shooting Visser]  I'm not afraid o' you, Marty.

    Private Detective Visser : [laughing hysterically]  Well, ma'am, if I see him, I'll sure give him the message.

  • Abby : I said, "Marty, how come you're anal, and *I* gotta go to the psychiatrist?"

    Ray : What'd he say?

    Abby : Nothing. He's like you, he doesn't say much.

    Ray : Thanks.

    Abby : Except when he doesn't say things, they're usually nasty. When you don't, they're usually nice.

  • Abby : I don't know what you're talkin' about. I mean, what are you talking about? I haven't done anything funny.

  • Abby : He gave me a little pearl-handled .38 for our first anniversary.

    Ray : Uh-huh.

    Abby : Figured I'd better leave before I used it on him. I don't know how you can stand him.

    Ray : Well, I'm only an employee, I ain't married to him.

  • Abby : He took me to a psychiatrist one time, to calm me down... the psychiatrist said I was the healthiest person he'd ever talked to, so Marty fired him.

    Ray : I don't think you can fire a psychiatrist, 'zactly.

    Abby : Well I never saw him again, I can tell you that.

  • Abby : How come you offered to drive me in this mess?

    Ray : I told you, I like you.

    Abby : I never knew that.

    Ray : Well, now you do.

    Abby : Hell.

  • Ray : What do you want to do?

    Abby : What do *you* want to do?

  • Ray : Abby, I meant it, when I called.

    Abby : I love you too.

    Ray : You're scared.

  • Abby : [referring to Marty]  Fact is... he's ANAL, Ray!

    Ray : Hmmmmm?

    Abby : [pointing to her forehead]  In HERE... Abby, in HERE... I'm anal.

    Ray : Well, I'll be damned.

    Abby : I couldn't believe it myself.

  • Abby : Ray?

    Ray : You're bad.

    Abby : What?

    Ray : I said you're bad.

    Abby : [long pause, then smiles]  You're bad too.

    Ray : We're both bad.

  • 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.

  • Ray : Who was it?

    Abby : What?

    Ray : On the phone? Was it, was it for you?

    Abby : I don't know. He didn't say anything.

    Ray : How'd you know it was a he?

    Abby : You got a girl? Am I screwin' somethin' up by bein' here?

    Ray : No. Am I?

  • Abby : Ray, just tell me what happened?

    Ray : That ain't important.
