Hart: You don't say fuck all about my wife. Don't say her name!

Cohle: You got some self loathing to do this morning, that's fine. But it ain't worth losing your hand over.

Hart: and how would that work exactly?

Cohle: Well I'd just apply a couple pounds of pressure. Snap your wrist... You seeing me, detective? Think I'm lying?

This character has some fucking potential. Great acting, great dialogue. Intellectual but mentally messed up. Not a meathead, but definitely not a pussy.
