The clip Goy's teeth story Part 3 from A Serious Man (2009) with Michael Stuhlbarg, George Wyner
So? What did you tell him?
Is it relevant?
Well, isn't that why you're telling me?
Nachtner says, "Look.
"The teeth, we don't know
"A sign from Hashem? Don't know.
"Couldn't hurt. "
No, no, but who put it there?
Was it for him, Sussman? Or for whoever found it? Or for just... For, for...
We can't know everything.
It sounds like you don't know anything!
Why even tell me the story?
First I should tell you, then I shouldn't.
What happened to Sussman?
What would happen? Not much.
He went back to work.
For a while, he checked every patent�s teeth for new messages.
He didn�t find any.
In time, he found he stopped checking.
He returned to life.
These questions that are bothering you, Larry,
maybe they're like a toothache.
Feel them for a while, then they go away.
I don't want it to just go away! I want an answer!
Sure We all want the answer.
Hashem doesn't owe us the answer, Larry.
Hashem doesn't owe us anything.
The obligation runs the other way.
Why does he make us feel the questions
if he's not going to give us any answers?
He hasn't told me.
And what happened to the goy?
Sy Ableman was a serious man.
