We suggest you challenge yourselves this time and attempt these scenes with an American accent as the Coen brother’s intended.

FAT TONY – scene 3 from page 8 (he is the Voice), and scene 57 from page 85.

BERYL – one beautiful scene only – number 11 from the bottom of page 18, really gets going on page 19.

VERNA – what a piece of work – try scene 15 from page 25, and scene 24 from bottom of page 39 (dialogue starts on page 40).

MINK – scene 12, from script page 19 – that’s all Steve Buscemi had to say.

O’GAR, the police chief – scene 22, script page 38 and scene 58, script page 86.

BERT or WHISPER – pick either one to learn – scene 46 from page 72, and then scene 47…

Good luck!
