I was talking with a friend, exchanging lines from The Big Lebowski, when he quoted Walter:
He went on to say it was the only time he had treated Donnie so harshly.
This took me a second to comprehend. I always thought he was referring to the people who gave Duderino the pager. Here’s part of the scene:
The Dude: They gave dude a beeper, yeah? So whenever these guys call…
Walter: What if it’s during a game?
The Dude: Oh, I told them, if it was during league play…
Donny: What’s during league play?
Walter: Life does not stop and start at your convenience you miserable piece of shit.
So I could see it being directed at Donnie but he usually just says ‘shut up, Donnie’ or ‘you’re out if you’re element’. I always thought he was directing it at the Other Lebowski for potentially interrupting their league play bowling.
Am I wrong?
