Blackwell says to Cooper "...hindsight is 50/50..." This is a malaphor - a mashup of two familiar sayings. "Hindsight is 20/20" is the correct phrase, and "50/50" meaning, of course, all things being equal or an even chance. It's apparent purpose here was to establish Blackwell's (I'm going to say binary) level of intelligence. It also qualifies as a "throw away line", another theatrical device. See more
