- And proud we are of all of them. Yes, yes.
- Different mothers, huh?
- Careful, man. There's a beverage here.
- It's down there somewhere. Let me take another look.
- Certain things have come to light, man. New shit has come to light. Ins and outs, what have youse.
- Am I wrong? Am I wrong?
- I am the walrus.
- Shut up Donnie.
- Ve chhump on it and ve sqvish it.
- Dude's got a beeper.
- I bet he's still got nine-hundred sixty, nine-hundred seventy, depending on the options.
- Uh, I'm just gonna go find a cash machine.
- Sometimes you eat the bar, and the bar, well, sometimes he eats you.
- That some kind of Eastern thing?
- You can imagine where it goes from here.
- He fixes the cable?
- Let me tell you something pendejo. Dios mio, it don't matter to Jesus.
- Has the whole world gone crazy? Am I the only one around here who gives a shit about the rules? Mark it zero!

- It tied the room together, man.
- I could just be sitting at home with pee stains on my rug.
- Hell, I can get you a toe by three o'clock this afternoon. With nail polish.
- You're entering a world of pain.
- Johnson?

Hah! Right now, more words = superfluous. Especially if you're spitting your brains out laughing already. If not, you haven't lived. And in case you're wondering what else I been up to this evening ~ in case you're into that whole brevity thing ~ here it is.

HOO-ah!

Two in one evening, man. The Dude abides.

The rug *really* held the room together.

Ha. My most very best of the favoritest movie of all times ever. At one time, my Xmas gift to *everyone* was a dvd copy of this film.

(And for all its nonstop humor, I was really moved at the "ashes" scene at the end...)

God bless the Coens, but they really need to make another good one fast.

Ah well, air of confusion huh? well, its not from the BigL...its by warhol. With the BigL, the scene that left a mark is the tracking shot in the bowling alley towards the end...cant quite gather why so...i think thats where he says, "2 in 1 eve man", right?

arun:
i agree, which is why i sometimes take the same shot twice :-)
btw, there's an interesting discussion of the bowling alley shot on the dvd special features. they first shot jeff bridges sliding down the alley while lying on a trolley, then superimposed the shot of the girls on it. only, they had to shrink him by 10% to make him fit!

ph:
any time :-D
