Billy Bob Thornton: People ask me a lot of times in interviews “What have you learned as a director when you’ve worked with other directors,” and they most often ask me about you guys. . . .
Ethan Coen: Well there isn’t anything, right? Remember we were kidding about that . . .
Joel Coen: I remember when we were shooting you were about to work with Barry Levinson [on Bandits], and Ethan was always admonishing you not to tell Barry any of our secret shit. . . .
Thornton: Then I actually showed up on the set with this bag and told the crew I had the Coen Brothers’ secret shit in it. [from the DVD Commentary on The Man Who Wasn't There]
