You Betcha!


Anyone who spends more than 5 minutes with me knows that I have a pretty conservative, yet colorful vocabulary. I’ve even been known to throw a feisty “Son of a Biscuit!” after being cut off on the 405. So, when I watched “Fargo” for the first time, I felt like I had met my match in Marge Gunderson.

The contrast of the heinous crimes committed in Fargo, North Dakota and sweet Marge casually stumbling into crime scenes is what made the tone of this movie so confusingly awesome…

ME: “Oh, that’s a body in a wood chipper, but it’s hilarious how serious she is with her pregnant belly stumbling through the snow. Like, is it ok that I’m giggling at this right now?” 

I’d now like to quote some my favorite lines in “Fargo” from Chief Marge Gunderson herself:

1) “Oh my. Where? Yeah? Aw geez. Okay, there in a jif. Real good, then.”


2) Oh for Pete’s sake, he’s fleeing the interview! He’s fleeing the interview!”


3) “And I guess that was your accomplice in the wood chipper.”


4) There’s more to life than a little money, ya know. Don’tcha know that? And here ya are. And it’s a beautiful day. Well. I just don’t understand it.”


5) “Sir, you have no call to get snippy with me, I’m just doing my job here.”


6) Oh, I just think I’m gonna barf… Well, that passed. Now I’m hungry again.”


Thanks for the untimely and awkward laughs, Marge. And in the words of your weird ex-boyfriend:
