Am I really the only one that thinks the Big Lebowski is the funniest movie known to man? Almost everyone else seems to despise it, but I can watch it five times in a row and laugh every time! I throw a party at least once a month to watch it. It has acheived true cult status with me.

Are there any other fans out there? Any fanatics? Any favorite lines?

Mine is "Larry, sweetie, the man is here".

Oh dear I am laughing my arse off already!

No, I liked it , too. No particular line I can think of ( it's been a while since I saw it), I just thought the whole damn movie was funny.
WAY under-rated.

In the TV version (I didn't see it, but I can imagine what it was liek) they apparently changed "Do you see what happens when you f*** a stranger in the ass"! with "Do you see what happens when you find a stranger in the Alps!"

When you find a stranger in the Alps?!?!?!?!

this movie. wow. this movie is like one of the best pieces of cinema ever. it was such an oversight at the Academy Awards that year. hell, john goodman went on snl and complained about it, in passing. anyways, my favorite quotes.

"nothing is fucked."
"nothing is fucked!? the plane has crashed into the goddamned mountain!"
"chinaman is not the preferred nomenclature. asian-american, please."
"they were nazis?"
"of course they were nazis. they were threatening castration."
"also dude. exotic animals...city limits...for domestic...that aint legal either, dude." (not sure on accuracy of this one, but im sure you all know.)
and you cant forget the walter's special way of communicating with donny.
"donny, shut the fuck up."
"shut the fuck up, donny."
"donny you're out of your element."
ps. this is my first post on straight dope.

I enjoyed the movie. I don't exactly qualify as a fanatic, but I got a few good laughs out of it.

I really got into Goodman's character. The whole 'VietNam vet who deludes himself about the war's "pivotal" role in US history' thing was really great.

I can't remember the exact line, but it was something like:

"Listen, lady, I've had friends dive face first in the mud so that you could eat that sandwich."

I thought that was priceless.

My housemates and I got rather disturbingly into the concept of saying "SEE WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU FUCK A STRANGER IN THE ASS!" to eachother for trivial things. Unfortunately this started manifesting itself at work (we worked together).

That was not a good thing.

And don't forget - nobody fucks with Jesus!

First of all, welcome, Black Dog!

I love this movie. I laughed my ass off in the theater, and I was the only one. I have never been able to listen to CCR sing "Lookin' Out My Backdoor" since without thinking of this movie. Superbly twisted, and the "dream sequence" to "I Just Dropped In to See What Condition My Condition Was In" is priceless.

A friend of mine owns the DVD. I've probably watched it... 20 or so times? It is sheer genius.

"Shomer shabbes!!!!"

I always watch Liam (Jesus' bowling partner) carefully. He never speaks and is supposed to keep a complete poker face, but you can see him almost lose it a couple of times. It very funny, actually.

Also -- Donny *always* bowls well (I'm throwing rocks tonight!) except in the scene right before he dies. hmmmmm....

"I don't need sympathy, man, I need my fucking johnson!"
"What do you need that for, Dude?"

I'll second the "Obviously you're not a golfer" line, and add the whole "let me have another look" moment in the toilet bowl.

Calling the landlord's dance number a "what have you" was inspired.

The opening sequence of Logjammin' had me in stiches.

The noise of the Malibu police coffee mug hitting the Dude's forehead is priceless.

I usually manage to get a quote a day in - usually without trying. Sad, really. I'll never get tired of watching that movie.

The movie ended so abruptly though. It was over and I was sitting staring at the screen going, "But he didn't get the girl, and he didn't get the money. How can it be over?" It did sort of feel like there was no ending. His life was pretty much the same at the end.

Definitely one of my favorite movies.

"You can imagine where it goes from here."
"He fixes the cable?"

"Hell, I can get you a toe by 3 o'clock this afternoon--with nail polish."

"I'm the Dude. So that's what you call me. You know, that or, uh, His Dudeness, or uh, Duder, or El Duderino if you're not into the whole brevity thing."

"So what are you saying? When you get divorced you turn in your library card? You get a new license? You stop being Jewish?"

"Three thousand years of beautiful tradition, from Moses to Sandy Koufax-- YOU'RE GODDAMN RIGHT I'M LIVING IN THE FUCKING PAST!"

can't believe no one has mentioned "You're entering a world of pain"

And my favorite...

"They're all a bunch of FUCKING AMATEURS!"

What? There are people that don't like this movie?

I bought my dad a DVD player for his birthday last week. And since I couldn't give him just a DVD player, I had to get a couple DVDs too. I chose The Usual Suspects and The Big Lebowski. My dad was absolutely thrilled. TBL is one of his favorite movies - he loves it so much he rented it twice. I have only seen it once and so can't quote lines, but it was pretty hysterical.

I had a coworker who had a keychain that said "I (heart) Jesus" on it. Yup, Jesus the bowler. (I had to ask, since she was not a Christian.)

There's a local band called Shut Up Donny.

Of all the DVDs in my library, The Big Lebowski is the one that I've watched the most often.

I love this movie. It has replaced Raising Arizona as my all time favorite comedy movie. Only the Coen Brothers could top themselves.

"You're entering a world of pain."

"Do you have to use so many cuss words?"
"What the fuck are you talking about?" (I may be a little off on the wording of this, but you get the idea.)

"At least I'm housebroken!"

"Tthat rug really held the room together."

"This is our most modestly priced receptacle."

"Nobody fucks with the Jesus."

"Eight year olds, Dude."

I love the Dude...simply because the Dude is all of us.

Think of it, he practically lives in a slice of heaven. Simple wants and needs. A good game of bowling, a White Russian (which I challenge anyone openly to say is a girls drink), no Eagles on the stereo, and a fine Rug for his troubles.

I know so many people like this (including myself) it ain't even funny.

Frankly, the finest part Bridges will ever play.

The Dude: Yeah, well. The Dude abides.
The Stranger: The Dude abides. I don't know about you but I take comfort in that. It's good knowin' he's out there. The Dude. Takin' 'er easy for all us sinners. Shoosh. I sure hope he makes the finals.

[While dunking the Dude's head in the toilet.]
Thug: Where's the money, Lebowski? Where's the fucking money, shithead?
Dude: It's uh-- uh-- it's down there somewhere, let me take another look.

Wanna know how much I adore The Big Lebowski? Last year, HBO showed it the evening before the first day of the Texas bar exam. That's the day they ask you about Texas civil and criminal procedure. I knew nothing about either subject, and was desperately trying to learn as much as possible while sitting in my hotel room.

I watched The Big Lebowski that night. I also passed the bar, but that's totally unrelated, I'm sure.

Wow.

I seriously hate this movie. I'm amazed that people are putting these quotes here and thinking that they are such funny lines, and yet I see no humour in any of them at all.

Amazing!

Sorry for going against the status quo, carry on...

I lost it during the scene when they are driving home after confronting the kid and the Dude's car has been trashed.

And I realize Walter and Donny are eating hamburgers.

"Nice marmot."

Although this is one of my favorite films, I have to yet again state for the record that the Coen brothers set back my timetable for the Bathrobe Revolution by at least a decade.

I'm a long-haired, goatee sporting guy who used to wear my bathrobe everywhere, especially shopping, but also in the various bars around Arlington, VA. I say "dude" entirely too much.

I saw this film with a half-dozen people on opening night--no, I was not in my robe. When Jeff Bridges appeared on-screen in the supermarket, every single person I was with exclaimed, "its YOU!"

In a brief two hours, my entire life was turned into a disturbingly accurate cliche. The Revolution is, needless to say, at a standstill.

Autobahn - Nagelbett (German electronica LP - translation Band: Motorway Album Title: Bed of Nails)

Goodman: "Is he...does he still write?"
Housekeeper: "Oh no, no, he has health problems."

Dude: "Man, c'mon, I had a rough night and I hate the fuckin' Eagles, man."

A few others already mentioned, notably "It is our most modestly-priced receptacle."

Somehow when I first saw it, I had the intuition that there might be more subtle references to classic Russian literature, Now I'm not so sure.

Great fuckin' movie though.

Where's the fucking money shithead

Your revolution is over, Mr. Lebowski! Condolences! The bums lost! I suggest you do what your parents did: get a job sir. The bums will always lose! Do you hear me Mr. Lebowski! The bums will always...

But what I must know - it's been bugging me - is what Wu the carpet pisser says just before he does his thing. Something about deadbeats.

See, we must have a DVD with subtitles. This aggression will not stand, man.

I consider myself a normal enough person, but I watch that movie excessively, and can't understand why others aren't thrilled by it. I was the same way with Tommy Boy at one time.

The whites. Another thing, Dude doesn't roll one ball in the film. And the beach scene at Trehorn's place contains homage to Riefenstahl's Triumph Of The Will. But you knew that because you love this shit.

Russian literature? Naw, it's Raymond Chandler all the way. I looove this movie, I own the DVD and watch it over and over. Im convinced the Coens could turn this into a dynamite TV show, a sort of combo Rockford Files/Columbo for the new century. Failure to appreciate this film is clearly proof of a congenital birth defect (sorry, GuanoLad. Maybe you can get some sort of federal aid?)

My favorite line that has not heretofore been mentioned:

"Sometimes you get the bar, sometimes the bar gets you."
"Is that some kind of Eastern thing?"

When Maude says something about men giving their penises nicknames like Johnson and then later the Nihilists say: "we are going to cut off your CHohnson". The Dude says something like "excuse me?"

"Dude, now that's a word no one would self-apply where I come from. But then... there were a lot of strange things about the Dude." (Incidentally, if you haven't seen the movie you might not find these lines funny. Let me assure you they are quite amusing when you watch it.)

"He's a pederast Dude."

"Oh come on..."

"No really, he likes little boys. When he moved here he had to go around the neighborhood telling everyone he was a pederast."
(cut to scene of Jesus in a nerdy outfit knocking timidly on a door, which opens to reveal a large biker type. Fade to next scene.)

Karl Hungus: I hear you have a problem mit diene cahble."
----

Donny: Are these the Nazis Dude?

Walter: No Donny, these are Nihilists, nothing to worry about.

I, too, like the 'beverage' line, and the writing of the check for under a dollar, but my favorite bit has to be when Walter is raging about not 'rolling' on Saturday, and the Dude reminds him "you're not Jewish".

Ok, I rented it again. Jesus, that's funny!

A lot of the funny stuff will slip by you..it's so subtle.

"I think, man, like, you know, I better tender my resignation...or something."

You need the visuals (and background) here:
"Dude."
"Maude?"
"Love me."
"That's my bathrobe."

Oh, and kudos, Billy Baroo on your username.

OK, Billy Baroo. Just for you I popped the DVD in and watched the scene with closed captioning. If a DVD does not have English subtitles, it will usually have closed captions. Many have both.

The guy says, "Ever thus to deadbeats, Lebowski."

I think it's supposed to be a riff on the line that John Wilkes Booth might have said after assassinating Lincoln, "Sic semper tyrannis", which I've seen translated as "Ever thus to tyrants."

Now that I've seen the first few moments, I find that I can't quite put it away. I have the strong urge to watch it again.

Shoot. There goes my evening.

Against the wall with GuanoLad

Are all of you (except GuanoLad) nuts? This was not a good movie. It had its moments, but the plot went nowhere and never found its way back. The characters were amusing bundles of quirks, nothing more. It's amazing to me this movie was made by the same Coen brothers who also made Blood Simple, Barton Fink and Raising Arizona. It's inferior. It's just inferior.

I once dated a woman for several months, then learned she liked The Big Lebowski better than Fargo. We're not dating anymore.

Simply put, my favorite movie.

I get stuck on the more subtle lines.

"Ulee, her co-star in the beaver pictures."
"Beaver? You mean, vagina?"

"Dipshit with a nine-toed woman!"

"You know, keeping a wild animal like that, uh, an amphibious rodent, uh, within city limits, uh, that's not legal either..."
"What are you now, a park ranger, man?!"

"She's not my fucking special lady friend, man!"

Hey, I just found the script.

I'd forgotten how many sweet, sweet lines are in this film:

BLOND MAN: Your name is Lebowski. Your wife is Bunny.

DUDE: Bunny? Look, moron.

He holds up his hands.

DUDE: You see a wedding ring? Does this place look like I'm fucking married? All my plants are dead!

The blond man stoops to unzip the satchel. He pulls out a bowling ball and examines it in the manner of a superstitious native.

BLOND MAN: The fuck is this?

The Dude pats at his pockets, takes out a joint and lights it.

DUDE: Obviously you're not a golfer.

I just watched it last week after not having seen it for over a decade. I think I was half asleep the first time so didn’t really pay attention. I can’t figure out if the kid really stole the car. If not, how did his homework get in there? Also, why wouldn’t they have looked in the bag to check if there was money in it?

Yeah, the kid stole the car. He also no doubt looked in the money bag but only found a phone book and so threw it away.

And yeah, the Dude should have verified that there was money in the bag before taking it.
