* This movie has several, which only work because the rest of the movie is so ''tense'', but Chigurh's encounter with the receptionist at the trailer park really shines.
* "Just how dangerous is he?" "Compared to what? Bubonic plague?"
* "It's a mess, ain't it, Sheriff?" "If it ain't, it'll do til the mess gets here."
* Llewelyn's encounter with the Mexican street band epitomizes the kind of dark, dry humor at which the Coens excel.
* [[http://thecia.com.au/reviews/n/images/no-country-for-old-men-4.jpg The face]] that Bell makes when told that no bullet was found in the body of an apparent gunshot victim. Has undergone a bit of MemeticMutation due to the fact that Bell doesn't say anything while making the face, because ''he doesn't need to''.
* "That's a dead dog." "Yes it is."
* Bell motions for his young partner to enter the Moss' trailer first. When he asks the sheriff about his gun still being unholstered, Bell dryly responds that [[HumanShield he's behind his partner.]]
* The scene where a stranger gives Anton's car a jump manages to be uncomfortable and funny at the same time. We see Chigurh's half-assed attempt at smiling, which only comes off as creepy. And then: [[PreMortemOneLiner "Could you get those chicken crates out of the bed?"]]
* "....Look at that FUCKIN' bone...."
* ''"When it comes down to a contest between man and steer, the outcome is never certain."''
* The shopkeeper's response when Llewelyn asks him if they get a lot of people coming into his shop not wearing any clothes: "No, sir. It's unusual."
** Beforehand, when Llewelyn walks in wearing nothing but a hospital robe and the boots he bought, the clerk's first response is "How're them Larry's holding up?"
* When Wells tells his employer that he counted the floors on the way up and that there's one missing:
-->'''Man Who Hires Wells:''' I'll look into it.
* "Are you gonna shoot me, too?" "Well, that depends... [[SchmuckBait Did you see me?]]"
