The Big Lebowski is the new Holy Grail

Seriously, it’s getting to the point where the Dude gets quoted more than the Knights Who Say Ni.

I am not exempting myself from this criticism either. I had to make comments just yesterday after Ed Koch weighed in on the Giuliani mistress fund-hiding scandal, simply because Koch referred to her as Rudy’s lady friend.

Action figures!

Well, it’s certainly one of the most quotable films ever.

Nobody fucks with the Jesus.

Eight year olds, dude.

See what happens when you fuck a stranger in the ass!

Well, that’s, like, your opinion, man.

We fucks you up! We takes the money!

And on and on…

Bah, The Princess Bride overtook Holy Grail years ago.

How are you going to get them back on the farm after they’ve seen Karl Hungus?

The Dude abides.

Sometimes you get the bar, sometimes the bar gets you.

OVER THE LINE!

This aggression will not stand.

We, as in the Royal “We”, man.

Phone’s ringing, dude.

Shut the FUCK up, Donny!

The storyline is ludicrous.

SEE WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU FUCK A STRANGER IN THE ASS?

They pissed on your fucking rug.

I wish words could be substituted for the notepad sketching scene.

Bah, you guys are all out of your element.

Inconceivable!

This agression will not stand man.

Maude: “You can guess what happens next…”

Dude: “He fixes the cable?”

“I don’t like your jerk-off name. I don’t like your jerk-off face. I don’t like your jerk-off behavior, and I don’t like you, jerk-off. Do I make myself clear?”

“Don’t be fatuous, Jeffery.”

“I don’t roll on Shabbos.”

“…say what you will about the tenants of national socialism…but at least that was an ethos!!!”

“No, Donny, these men are nihilists. There’s nothing to be afraid of.”
