Call it, Friendo

Quoted from the Urban Dictionary (used without permission): Friendo - An intimidating word you use when you want to shake down or scare someone who actually isn't really a friend.

"Call it, friendo."

- Anton Chigurh (played by Javier Bardem in No Country for Old Men), to an old, simple convenience store proprietor after flipping a coin to determine whether the old man lives or dies. Bardem is the favorite to win the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his role as the cold, money-seeking hit man.

Very cool. Me thinks the hairstylist is not up for an Oscar, though.

He doesnt actually say 'call it, friendo'. thats just in the trailer, when they splice two different bits of the scene together.

he actually says 'which way is that...friendo'

so there
