Fargo (1996) Poster


Peter Stormare: Gaear Grimsrud



  • [Jean is making noise in the back of the car] 

    Gaear Grimsrud : Shut the fuck up! Or I'll throw you back in the trunk, you know?

    Carl Showalter : Jesus, that's more than I've heard you say all week.

  • Gaear Grimsrud : You're a smooth smoothie, you know?

  • Carl Showalter : You ever been to Minneapolis?

    Gaear Grimsrud : Nope.

    Carl Showalter : Would it... kill you to say something?

    Gaear Grimsrud : I did.

    Carl Showalter : "No." That's the first thing you've said in the last four hours. That's, a fountain of conversation there, buddy. That's a geyser.

  • Gaear Grimsrud : Where is pancakes house?

    Carl Showalter : What?

    Gaear Grimsrud : We stop at pancakes house.

    Carl Showalter : What... are you nuts? We had pancakes for breakfast. Gotta go to a place I can get a shot and a beer, steak, maybe, not more fuckin' pancakes, c'mon.

    [Gaear just stares at Carl] 

    Carl Showalter : Oh, come on, man! Okay, here's an idea: we can stop outside of Brainerd. I know a place there we can get laid. Whaddya think?

    Gaear Grimsrud : I'm fucking hungry now, you know!

    Carl Showalter : Yeah yeah Jesus, I'm sayin' we can... stop, get pancakes and then we'll get laid, alright?

    [Gaear glares briefly] 

  • Carl Showalter : [entering cabin, with shot-up face]  You should see the other guy.

    Carl Showalter : [he sees Jean Lundegaard's dead body]  What the fuck happened to her?

    Gaear Grimsrud : [watching TV and eating TV dinner]  Uh, she started shrieking, y'know. She wouldn't stop...

    Carl Showalter : Geesus. Well, it doesn't matter. I got the money. All of it. All eighty grand.

    Carl Showalter : [he puts a couple stacks of bills down on table]  That's forty for you, forty for me.

    [Grimsrud pokes at the stacks of bills with his fork] 

    Carl Showalter : [puts a set of keys next to the money]  That's it, then. You can have my truck. Here's the keys. I'm takin' the Ciera.

    Gaear Grimsrud : We split that.

    Carl Showalter : [pause]  How the fuck do you split a fuckin' car, ya dummy? With a fuckin' chainsaw?

    Gaear Grimsrud : One of us pays the other for half.

    Carl Showalter : Hold on! No fuckin' way! You fuckin' notice this? I got fuckin' shot! I got fuckin' shot in the face! I went and got the fuckin' money. I got shot fuckin' picking it up! I've been up for thirty-six fuckin' hours! I'm taking' that fuckin' car! That fucker's mine, you fuckin' asshole!

    [as usual, no response from Grimsrud] 

    Carl Showalter : You know, I've been listening to your fuckin' bullshit all week! Are we square?

    [no response from Grimsrud who continues staring at the TV] 

    Carl Showalter : [flashing his gun]  Are WE square?

    [no response] 

    Carl Showalter : Yeah, ya fuckin' mute. And if you see your friend Shep Proudfoot, tell him I'm gonna nail his fuckin' ass!

    [he exits angrily toward the Ciera; after a few seconds, Grimsrud follows him out the door with an axe in hand] 

    Carl Showalter : [Showalter turns and sees Grimsrud striding toward him, axe raised]  Oh no! Aaaaaah!

    [Grimsrud brings the axe down toward Carl's neck] 

  • Gaear Grimsrud : I need unguent.

  • Jerry Lundegaard : You see, my wife's dad is real well off.

    Carl Showalter : So, why don't you just ask him for the money?

    Gaear Grimsrud : Or your fucking wife, you know.

    Carl Showalter : Or your fuckin' wife, Jerry?

    Jerry Lundegaard : Well, it's all part of... look, the thing is they don't know that I'm in trouble. My wife and father-in-law don't know I need money. And if they did... I still won't get it. Okay? These are personal matters.

    Carl Showalter : Personal matters? Okay, you're tasking us to perform this mission, but you won't tell us what... oh, fuck it. Let's have a look at the Ciera.

  • Gaear Grimsrud : [after being bit on the hand by Jean Lundegaard]  Unguent... I need unguent.
