[Jerry answers the phone]
Jerry: Jerry Lundegaard.
Carl: All right, Jerry, you got this phone to yourself?
Jerry: Well, yeah.
Carl: Know who this is?
Jerry: Well, yeah, I got an idea. How's that Ciera workin' out for ya?
Carl: Circumstances have changed, Jerry.
Jerry: Well, what do ya mean?
Carl: Things have changed. Circumstances, Jerry. Beyond the, uh, acts of God, force majeure--
Jerry: What the--how's Jean?
Carl: Who's Jean?
Jerry: My wife! What the--how's--
Carl: Oh, Jean's okay, but there's three people up in Brainerd who aren't so okay, I'll tell ya that.
Jerry: What the heck are you talkin' about? Let's just finish up this deal here--
Carl: Blood has been shed, Jerry.
Jerry: What the heck ya mean?
Carl: Three people. In Brainerd.
Jerry: Oh, geez.
Carl: That's right and we need more money.
Jerry: The heck do ya mean? What a you fellas get yourself mixed up in?
Carl: We need more--
Jerry: This was s'posed to be a no-rough-stuff-type deal--
Carl: Don't ever interrupt me Jerry, just shut the **** up!
Jerry: Well, I'm sorry, but I just--I--
Carl: Look, I'm not gonna debate you, Jerry. The price is now the whole amount. We want the entire eighty thousand.
Jerry: Oh, for Christ sakes here--
Carl: Blood has been shed. We've incurred risks, Jerry. I'm coming into town tomorrow. Have the money ready.
Jerry: Now we had a deal. A deal's a deal.
Carl: Is it, Jerry? Why don't you ask those three poor souls in Brainerd if a deal's a deal. Go ahead, ask them!
Jerry: The heck do ya mean?
Carl Showalter: [mimicking] "The heck ya mean?" I'll see you tomorrow.
